Chapter 10 - Not Your Mate Anymore

We were woken up by sirens and howling wolves. I looked at Max and he looked at me. They were here and we didn't have time to go through the plan with everyone.

We raced out of bed to get dressed and looking for everyone. I ran out of Max's room to mine so I could change and get ready for whatever is to come. After changing clothes and running out barefoot, I went to get Josey who was busy getting dressed. Cj barges into the room and relaxes once his eyes land on us. Once Josey is dressed we ran to meet everyone at the foyer.

Max, uncle Deacon, dad, grandfather, Damon, Nicole, Cj, Josey and I were all looking at each other with a knowing look. That we were under attack and it was now or never. I hugged my dad and grandfather before I raced out with Max by my side.

I looked back to see Josey walking alongside Cj who had shifted into his wolf. People were running around to get ready for any kind of attack.

I grabbed Max and kissed him. I pulled away and straightened my clothes before looking back at him,

"You do best and come back to me in one piece or I will pay the moon goddess and you a visit. You won't like it" I say to him and he chuckles as he puts a stray hair behind my ear.

"I promise to fight my way back to you. I will make my way back to you my Kimberley" he says to me. I blush but shake it off as the sirens get louder. They were here and the guards at the borders couldn't stop them.

The sirens stop ringing and everything goes quiet. We all look ahead of us counting down until we see something or someone. It stays quiet for some time until Charley walks out alone, naked and covered in blood. He had killed our guards. Growls could be heard around us directed at Charley who walks to us with his hands in the air. A surrender? Already? Why is he alone? Something is not right. Remi!

I turn around and run in to the house mind linking Max and everyone to stay in position. I run to the dungeon to see a tall bulky man trying to open the dungeon doors. I whistle at him and he freezes. As he turns around I remember who he is, Thomas. This was Remi's mate and he was here to rescue her as Charley played the perfect distraction. I decide to use my telepathy skills and make him walk out to kneel in front of Max. As he walks past me I walk into the dungeons to grab Remi and pull her out of the house.

As I make my way to Max, I see Thomas kneeling in front of him. Remi sees Thomas and tries to get out of my grip but I was stronger so it was pointless. I threw her down next to her mate and then looked at Charley.

"You have our attention Charley. Now, are they all going to come out of hiding or do I have to kill you to lure them out?" I say and he chuckles at me. He starts roaring in laughter and then takes on a serious look on his face.

"You could never kill me pup" he says to me and before he could say any more, I have a tree root wrap itself around him as he is lifted up in the air. He looks around clearly dumbfounded by this act.

"Come out come out Percy. Do you really want to see me kill dearest daddy? Who's going to tell you what to do once he's gone? Ralyn? I don't think she has it in her. Do you?" I say this as we all hear a growl coming out from somewhere in the woods.

I walk up to Charley and had the roots loosen their hold and go back into the earth. While he catches his breath, I walk away and stand next to Max. Remi was trying to talk to Thomas but he was in a daze, only kneeling in front of Max looking at the ground. I laughed.

Remi looked at me and within seconds changed into her wolf and tried to attack me but Max was quick as he threw to the side where my mom, don't know when she made her appearance, knocked her out. Charley was shocked to see my mother and she just waved at him.

See Charley tried to buy time but we were also buying time to have our land surrounded. Once Max told me it was surrounded, I got Thomas out of his trance and he went running to Remi. He shook her awake and she woke up as I was walking towards them.

"Remember my promise Remi?" I say to her smiling. She looks at me and then back at Thomas. Thomas feels his mates fear and growls at me but before he could charge at me, I get my claws out and lunge into his chest then pull out his heart. He drops to the ground and Remi roars shifting into her wolf charging for me. I have some tree roots come out and pierce her legs and back in the ground, nailing her in one position as I heard growls of wolves possibly coming to attack from Thomas's pack.

Charley ran back into the wood as more wolves came out to attack. Angry at the killing of their alpha. Weak alpha.

Everyone started fighting them off and as more and more of our warriors came out from the shadows to take them down. We kill one and three would come out.

This couldn't only be Thomas's pack. There had to be someone else with him because these wolves belonged to a pack. It looked like Max was thinking the same thing as he mind linked me telling me he's going into the woods to find out who they belonged to. I was so preoccupied with fighting more and more wolves charging at me I didn't get to see which side he went to. Dead bodies every where.

I decided to try find Max only to run into Percy and Charley.

They were walking up to me, looking at me as if I was their next prize.

"Come on Sabrina. I don't want to hurt you. Just stand down and let Reginald take over and everybody lives" Percy says to me. I stop walking to look at him incredulously.

"That rogue killed your mother! Raped her! How can you fight for his cause? How dare you disrespect her like this?" He growled at me but Charley shifted into his wolf and ran for me. I held my stance and waited for him.

He released his power trying to intimidate me but I just smiled. I didn't feel the need to release mine as Athena wasn't the least bit scared. He jumped trying to attack me in the air but I shifted my hand into claws and ducked while slicing his stomach open. He fell to the ground choking on his blood. He couldn't change into his human form as that will kill him instantly.

Percy saw what happened and he saw red. He came running at me, shifting in motion as I ran to him too. I shifted into my wolf letting Athena take the reigns on this one. Athena went to the side as Percy came in straight and then jumped on his back to bite off his ear. She was toying with him. She wanted to torture him.

He howled in pain but turned around to come at us again. I jumped on him again and bit into his shoulder, taking a chunk of meat with me. He roared and tried charging at me but I went under him this time and gripped his neck, got the upper side and flipped him over so now I was on top of him. I bit harder as blood trickled out of his neck falling to the ground.

I was trying to get him to submit but he wouldn't relent. For a moment I saw his eyes were of pure sadness, as if asking me to end his life. His wolf was not happy with the choices Percy made and it broke my heart although I couldn't let my guard down. Not with Percy.

He would not submit so I shifted back to human and knocked him out. Then ran looking for Max. I found him fighting Reginald and he was not winning.

They were in their wolf forms and they had both taken a few blows. Then the rogue alpha released his power and everything went still. We could all feel it and I knew then that it was over for Max. Max was strong but this was not on his level, this man was not normal.

How did he get so much power? How could he hide it so well when Max strangled him back at the pack house?

He went charging for Max and bit his side of the shoulder and threw him as he hit a tree and we all heard a crack. I screamed out loud mixed with a roar from Athena after hearing that crack which got Reginald's attention as he shifted back to his human self and smiled at me.

I looked back at Max's unconscious body as it shifted back to human. I tried listening for a heartbeat but it was faint. This was bad.

Ralyn walked out from behind her father, smiling at me as she released her power trying to intimidate me. It was strong, just not as strong as her father's.

I felt a presence next to me and I looked to my left to see Josey as she nodded at me. Mind linking me to say that she'll take Ralyn. I gave a slight nod and turned to face Reginald. Bastard was going to pay for this.

Josey ran for Ralyn and punched her. I was walking to Reginald, he to me. He released his power again but I didn't flinch. It was nothing compared to what I had but he didn't know that. I was so much stronger and I was not happy with him. My chosen mate was still on the ground laying unconscious.

He stood in front of me as we stopped walking. He tilted his head to the side, checking me. Probably trying to feel for the power he was told about. I decided to give him a taste of what's to come so I released a little bit of my power to entice him. Granted, it was stronger than Ralyn's so it's an easy win for Josey.

"I think I should take you as my chosen mate. Together we can be so powerful." He says to me smirking.

"And what about me?" A blonde lady said coming out from the shadows. She looked at Max and frowned.

"I thought I said my son was to be left untouched!" She said to Reginald. This was Max's mother.

"Well, he was going to kill me. I couldn't let that happen" he said defending himself.

"This changes things Reginald. I wanted Deacon's head. You didn't tell me my son was the alpha!!!" She screamed at him. He slapped her and that seemed to shut her up

"Don't forget who you're talking to. I am your alpha. Know your place woman!" He said to her and she whimpered.

What is it with it alphas and enforcing their status into everything. I walked up to Max's mother and punched her, knocking her out.

The rogue alpha looked at me with an eyebrow raised..

"You and I have some things to talk about" I say to him and he nods. I punch him hard as he tumbles to the ground. He gets up quickly and spits out some blood then looks at me, rage in his eyes.

"You shouldn't have done that little mate" he says to me the throws a punch but I dodge it and throw one back at him.

He kept trying to punch me but failed miserably. I then kicked him in his balls and then his head. When he dropped to the ground I looked around me.

Some guy was holding Josey's hands behind her while Ralyn punched her over and over again. I saw my dad being bit on the shoulder.

Max was still out but his heart was getting stronger which meant he was healing. Nicole was fighting two wolves, my pack was losing as there was too many wolves to take on.

A knife was plunged in my neck from someone behind me and it was as if something snapped inside me. Not Athena but something. I dropped to the ground and I heard Reginald calling the guy a fool as he needed me and now I was probably going to die from silver.

I then mind linked Josey to fight! Reminding her of our training. I said the same thing to Cj over mind link as I couldn't see him but I just needed to.

I got up and looked at Reginald as he froze to look at me and the guy that stabbled me looking at me horrified.

I pulled the knife out and the wound closed up as if it was never there. Reginald's eyes bulged out, stuttering. Trying to make it make sense. I smiled at him.

I released my power, all of it. Whatever that snapped inside me released with my Power. My eyes changed to a deeper shade of purple. Josey released her power and fought off Ralyn and her help.

Within seconds I was in front of the guy that plunged the knife in my neck. I did the same thing to him but then removed the knife to stab Reginald in the leg, then his other leg. As the guy fell to the ground holding on to his open wound, before Reginald could do anything I went behind him and got my claws out to break his spinal cord. I then threw him to the nearest tree hitting it hard and then lying on the ground unable to move. Now paralyzed from the waist down I had him sit and watch everything. I brought out the trees roots to keep him in place.

I then stood in the middle of the clearing and looked at Nicole's fight. I put my hands on the ground and had the ground open up and swallow the wolves around her and then close up.

I then looked at my dad and sent a root through his opponent's body.

I looked at all my pack members and I helped them however I could, sending fire balls, choking the enemy with their own blood. As I was doing this I heard someone scream behind me and I turned around to see Charley throw a spear in my direction and Percy threw himself in front of me as the spear went through his stomach. He dropped to the ground and his father roared in anger. I pulled the spear out of him and healed him. That was my new power. I can heal. I then got up and looked at Charley who was in a seated position looking defeated.

I walked up to him and stopped in front of him. "Look at all of this! This is all on you! Natalie's death, Percy's life, the pack! Your actions led to this! The moon goddess is waiting for your head and I'm going to deliver it." I said as I slowly pierced his body with the spear and pushed it in through his stomach like he did Percy. I left it there then got my claws out and pulled his heart out.

I turned around to look at Josey who had her claws in Ralyn's chest, Reginald screaming no and trying to get out of my hold. I walked up to Ralyn,

"It would be easy to kill you and your rogue father but I have plans for you two." I say to her and then Josey knocks her out.

Max was trying to get up and I quickly ran to him to help him. I helped him sit up and pulled him into a hug.

"You scared me Maximus." He smiled at me and hugged me again.

We got up and looked at all the dead bodies around us.

We've lost some good soldiers today over a man's greed. A man who was not so powerful after all. Restrained by a bunch of roots.

I helped Max to the hospital and had the doctor check him. My dad was also there to get stitched up.

We won too easily. Who was Reginald? Why was he so strong? He did not get his gift from the moon so how was he like that?

This was no war. This was a battle that we won. It wasn't easy but we won. I didn't even get to fight in my wolf form. What was all of that for?

'You are a wise one. This was only the beginning my child. I'm happy you unlocked your other gift because you'll need it. War is on the horizon and they want you and Josey dead.' The voice said. That sounded like the moon goddess.

'It was' Athena says to me.

I smile. She only responds when she feels like it. This moody diva.

I walked into Max's room to check up on him. Seems like he had the same thoughts as I did and I filled him in on my one sided conversation with the moon goddess.

After checking up on Max, I went to see my dad and then Percy.

He saved my life after all.

I walked in to his room to find him asleep. I turned around to walk out,

"Don't. I could smell your scent as you approached my door. I can smell you anywhere." He said.

I turned around and walked up to him.

"Why did you do it?" I ask him. He looks at me with sadness in his eyes. I felt bad for him.

"My wolf. He couldn't let him kill you. I messed up Brina. I really did and I'm sorry." He said. I just put my hand on his good shoulder and squeezed it.

"I was a fool to give you up. You are Indeed special. Call your family in here. There's something that they need to hear. Everyone needs to know why we did what we did" Percy said to me.

He grabbed my hand and looked at me,

"We don't have much time Sabrina. Get everyone in here now. I can't win you back but I know now I can't let you die. More are coming Brina. Reginald has a family and if they don't hear from him, they'll be here soon." he said and I nodded my head and walked out of his room to get everyone.

I knew this was too good to be true. We won but we still had to fight again. I just don't understand why we are being attacked and I hope Percy can fill in the blanks. Reginald was one touch guy. We don't know who his family is but if they are as strong as he is and have the numbers, then we are in trouble.

I walk into Max's room and tell him about Percy. He didn't like that Percy was getting treated but I told him he saved my life. It was the least I could do but he still didn't like it.

I let him gather himself and went to get my dad. When I walked into his room I saw Josey, CJ and my grandfather. I filled them in on Percy and they all agreed to meet me in Percy's room in 5min. I mind linked uncle Deacon who said he would be right there.

I walked back into Max's room and ask him to get Nicole and Damon. We walked out together to bump into Tristan who came by to check on his alpha. We filled him in and he walked with us to Percy's room.

When we walked in everyone was there. Percy looked at my hand that was in Max's hand and a sad smile formed on his face. His eyes looked glassy for a minute but then he closed them and open them again to show a calm exterior.

"I know you all have no reason to trust me. Especially you Sabrina, but what I have to say is important and everyone's life depends on it" he said. He wanted our attention, he got it.
