out of her way to set the table all fancy. Even Echo had gone out of his way to make this meal extra special, he had invited Jaxon, Cassies parents, Axl, and my best friend Elija and someone that I didn know.

”Hey Lupin. ” Elija waved, ”This is Peter. ” He grinned at a boy I had seen before.

”Dinner, sit. ” Ang pulled out seats for me and Cassie. We sat between Cassies parents and Elija and Peter. Echo brought over the pots and pans and set them on the table, and everyone dug in. After we ate, Cassie and i cleaned up the plates, Echo pulled the playing cards out and everyone began playing.

I had picked up on some of Angies tricks, and I was kicking everyones asses. When someone knocked on the front door.

”Are you expecting anyone? ” I raised an eyebrow to Ang who was also looking towards the front door.

”No not that I know of. ”

”Ill get it. ” Echo put down his playing cards. He got up and walked out of sight, we heard the door open then Echo yelled for Angie.

She got up and ran into the living room. ”Freddie? ”

”Hi Angie. ”

”Come in. We were just having dinner. ”

Angie and Echo came back into the dinning room, Fredrick following her holding someones hand.

”Saphire? ” Jaxon raised a brow to the girl with Freddie.

”Ang. ” Fred looked at everyone in the house. ”I just wanted to introduce you to my mate. ”

”We know her. ” I said. ”She came her with Abbott when we held a meeting. ” I looked to Echo to make sure I wasnt overstepping my boundaries.

”We did meet once. ” Saphire squeezed freds hand. ”But a lot has changed since then. ”

”We met while she was on the run from her pack. Echo… Ang… I need to talk to you in private. ”

”later. ” Echo looked at Ang. ”Not here. ”

”You can take the spare room. ” Ang smiled at Fred.

”And you can join as in cards. ” Cassies father pushed Tasha off the chair. ”Here you can sit here. Ive missed having you around Fredrick. ”

I gave him a dirty look. ”Tasha, you can sit here. ” I stood up offering my seat.

”No, thats your seat Lupin. ”

The whole room went silent. I was glaring as Tashas husband and he was glaring at me.

”Is there a problem? ” Ang asked looking from me to Brian.

”Ive put it off for a long time, but pushing Tasha off the seat like he did… ” I growled. ”I promished tasha that if i ever saw him treat her like that again Id kick his ass. ”

Cassie and Tasha gasped, Ang just looked from me to Brian.

”Well then theres only one way to settle this. ” Ang broke the silence. ”Brian you know the rule. Everybody outside. ”

”Lupin, you dont have to hurt him. Just make him submit to you. ” Ang whispered as everyone else filed outside.

”Its why Tasha always always stays at home and wears long sleeves. Her arms are covered in bruises. ”

”Mom… ” Cassie was hugging her mother. ”Is that true? ”

”Cass.. you two can stay here if you want. What do you want me to do if I do get him to submit? ”

”Just prove a point to him, scare him into being a better person. ” Echo put a hand on my shoulder. ”If he tries to harm or anything you do what I thought you. No one can step in to stop or help. Dont submit to him or it will make your life with Cassie and Tasha hell. ”

”okay. ” I sent a smile in Cassies direction then I headed outside where everyone else was waiting standing in a circle.

”I thought you were going to chicken out. ” Brian said before he turned into a wolf.

”Not a chance. ” I turned into my white wolf and walked into the circle.

Brian sized me up, and I sized him up. I was defiantly bigger than him, but he didn back down. We walked in circles staring each other down. ”Back down I willed him, It will only get worse from here. ”

”Fuck no. ” He growled. ”Tasha is my mate and i will treat her the way she deserves. ”

”If i treated Cassie the way you treat your wife you wouldn want to hurt me? ” I growled

”I would think she had done something to deserve it. ” He pounced, I dodged out of the way and turned nipping his foot as it glided past.

”Don make me hurt you. ” I growl more firmly. ”I wont back down to you. ”

He pounced again, this time I took the full weight of his pounce allowing him to knock me over, letting him use his strength before Id even began. He ran off and turned back ready to strike again, I came at him with my teeth bared. Growling he dodged me to avoid my bite, then we began circling again. This time i pounced, striking him in the ass end, grabbing him and pinning his as to the ground. He tore away from me causing my claws to dig into his hind legs making him bleed, but even with his limp he was not ready to submit.

I let out a howl, trying to intimidate him or cause him to think i was showing a sign of weakness, it worked, he pounced again and scratched my muzzle, i lashed our striking his underside, I felt my teeth break the skin and sink in. He cried in pain and jumped back causing skin and fur to rip from his body.

Still no one stepped in, they all knew that it would only stop when one of us submitted or died. I watched Brian to see if he was ready to give up. He was panting, his wolf was not cut for fighting, he wouldnt be able to fight much longer his strenght was depeted, and he was bleeding rather badly now.

”Submit. ” I growled once more, but he didnt. I leaped crashing on all fours ontop of him snarling. ”Just submit damnit. ” I bared my teeth above him, and then he laid his head down, he stopped growling and turned back into a man. I let out a howl and turned back too.

”Someone get the healer. ” I stood up and offered a hand down to the bleeding man.

”No, just let me die here. Im too ashamed. ”

”No, you are my mates father and I will not let you bleed out and die here. ” I took his hand by force and pulled him up. ”Never treat your wife poorly again. ” I hed him up and pulled him back into the house.

(Later that night)

”You didnt kill him even when he was so disrespectful to you. ” Cassie curled up in my lap. We were sitting in my room. ”How long had you known he wasnt treating my mom good? ”

”For a long time. I promised I wouldnt do anything that time, but Id told your mom if he did again. ” I felt my wolf growl.

”You will make an honorable alfa one day. ” Cassie kissed my neck.

”I doubt that. I might not even survive Akantha. ” I leaned back to get a good look at cassie. ”I have to try, no one should have to deal with her, shes horrible. ”

”Is that why you keep having meeting with that fowl rouge wolf. ” She shivered. ”Hes always flirting with me. ”

”I just feel like i can trust him. ” I looked at cassie. ”Does that make me crazy, my gut tells me that I can, but he hasnt told me anything, he just tells me that my anger is that of a child and that I am going to get myself and everyone else killed if I dont act like a man. ”

Cassie was a good listener, I told her everything that I had talked about with Alaska. We talked into the night about what I should do, I think she agreed with me that eventually i would have to leave the Red wolf territory and take a firmer action to make things happen. If she didnt like it i couldnt tell, she hid it well.

~~~

”So what did you want to talk about Fred? ” I asked.

”I think that Saphire would be better suited.. she was there. ” Fred looked to his mate who was watching me and Ang.

”Okay tell us. ” Ang sat down on my lap.

”Well remember that day i met you with my alfa Abbott? ”

”Yes. ”

”Well after a couple days, Akantha came to us… ” she shivered just thinking about it. ”She went to that orphanage that he runs, where you got Lupin… ”

”What happened. ”

”I went there with a message, from a member of the pack and she was there, with her horrible mates. He told her that hed seen the boys wolf and that he was looking for people to build an army against her. She was angry, but not because of that. He refused to join her side wanting to stay out of it so she took a teacher that had worked there that knew the boy. I think it was so that she could learn about him. She punished the pack and took almost everything we had. She knew Id been there when she found out so I ran for it. ”

”And thats when she met me. ” Fred spoke up. ”I was hiding out in the human world, pretending to be one, telling those that could tell that i was just passing through. ”

I scratched my chin. ”Who was this teacher that knew Lupin so well? ” I looked at Ang.

”She was the lady who helped me adopt him, Ms Pennie i think was her name. She said she had watched over him since he got there… ”

”Hopefully shes a lot braver than Abbott, or all will be lost. ”

”Echo, i think its time you gave Alaska a free pass in and out. ” Ang looked at me. ”He had lots of wolves under his command, hes our only hope. ”
