Heather pursed her lips then let out a sigh.
“I would have agreed regardless but yes, it was because of the pregnancy I
agreed to marry him so quickly” Kiara stared at her for a while then straightened
“There’s something you’re not telling me, Heather” Heather but her lower lip then
stood up from the couch.
“I’ll be in my room if you guys need me. I’m pretty tired and just want to rest”
Before Kiara could even say anything, Heather hurriedly walked away.
“She’s keeping something from me,” Kiara uttered as she stood up from the
“Or maybe she doesn’t just want you all up in her business” She frowned then
turned back to Levi.
“I’m not all up in her business, I’m just worried about her” His eyes widened as if
he suddenly realized how he had sounded.
”I honestly didn’t mean anything by my words and I love that you always want to
know what’s going on with those around you so you can help them but maybe,
she just wants to be by herself and sort it out herself? Heather is a smart person
and I’m sure she can solve whatever problem she’s going through on her own”
She sighed then turned to glance at the stairs.
“It’s not a matter of if she can solve it on her own because I know she can. I
just… I just want to be there for her every step of the way just like she was there
for me” He scratched his head.
“How about you leave her to gather her thoughts for tonight then you can
question her about it tomorrow?” Kiara stared at him for a while then let out a
“Okay. I’m starving, is there anything I can eat?” A thoughtful look appeared on
“Yes but everything I have is uncooked. I can either ask the cook to prepare
something for us or we can cook it ourselves. What do you think?” She scoffed.
“We are both not good cooks so I don’t see how that’s going to work out” Levi
“We can use this as a learning process. Come on,let’s do it” She sighed.
“Don’t blame me when your house gets burnt down” He laughed.
“Alright. Shall we go?” She nodded and they walked towards the kitchen.
“So what you are trying to say is that the monster seems to be after Daniel?
Why?” Raymond questioned as he furrowed his eyebrows at Zane.
“That’s a question we can’t answer right now because we are still trying to figure
out why” Zane uttered then turned to Daniel who immediately took that as a
signal to speak.
“I was thinking we should use me as bait for the monster” Raymond furrowed his
eyebrows then began murmuring with the other Alphas.
“If the monster is really after you then that should work” Daniel nodded.
“It would, trust me but like Zane said, the monster should know that I would be
used as bait now that we know he’s after me so we thought of another plan. A
stunt double will be used as bait while I’ll be in one of Zane’s cabin the woods”
Raymond furrowed his eyebrows.
“I’m sorry, what?” Zane smiled.
“Daniel isn’t really going to be used as bait. The monster might try to attack
Daniel at his house again but Daniel won’t be in there but a stunt double. When
the monster attacks, we come in and capture it. We Alphas have to take it upon
ourselves to make sure we capture the monster” Everyone nodded as they
contemplated on what Zane said.
“How are you so sure the monster is going to come for Daniel again?” Liam
questioned with a raised eyebrow and Zane smirked.
“Lucky guess. Daniel will be going over to my cabin tonight and hopefully all this
should be over within this week” Zane muttered then stood up from his chair.
“I have to go pick up Kiara so I have to go now. It’s getting late”
“I’ll come with you, Zane. I need to pick up Heather as well” Zane nodded then
placed his hand on Daniel’s shoulder. They exchanged a look only two of them
could understand before Zane walked out of the conference office with Liam.
“Why do I feel like you are not telling me everything?” Liam questioned as they
walked towards Zane’s car. Zane paused then turned to Liam.
“I don’t trust you” Liam raised an eyebrow then chuckled.
“Me? What did I do?” Zane shrugged.
“I don’t know what you have done but I don’t trust anyone except Kiara right now.
I won’t even have trusted Daniel but he’s a target for the monster so that makes
him innocent” Liam stared at him for a while then sighed.
“That makes sense” Zane turned away and climbed into the car then waited for
Liam to get in.
“You don’t really think the monster is going to show up, do you?” Liam questioned
making Zane snort.
“Oh it’s going to show up”
Kiara could feel tears rolling down her cheeks as she laughed her heart out. Levi
had completely burnt the chicken they had spent hours trying to prepare and the
look on his face kept making her laugh.
“Why do you look so surprised? We are both awful cooks” She uttered when she
finally got herself. She wiped away the little tears at the corner of her eyes then
walked up to him.
“I just didn’t expect it to look this bad” She sighed.
“Let’s just order in” She suggested then glanced around the kitchen with a sigh.
“Gosh, look at the mess we have made. let’s get to cleaning before….”
“Before I show up?” Levi and Kiara abruptly turned towards the voice and her
eyes brightened when she saw Zane leaning against the kitchen door frame.
“Zane” She called out as she ran towards him. He wrapped her in a bear hug
then kissed her forehead.
“You missed me?” He questioned and she shook her head.
“Not really. Levi was keeping me company” Zane’s eyes darted towards Levi and
she was surprised when she didn’t see an ounce of jealousy but the way he held
her was possessive..
Did that mean he didn’t see Levi as a threat anymore?…
