#Chapter 150: The Lost Twin
“Yes, daddy,” Selena said. “He’s perfect.”
As she spoke, the voice of my fated mate was like music to my ears. But somehow, there was something sharp and grating about it at the same time. I could smell Nina’s faint scent on her; surely she had some sort of knowledge as to where Nina was. Not only that, but Selena looked just like Nina with only a couple of small differences, and it was eerie to say the least. Was Selena the ‘ Sister’ that Edward, Ronan, and Lisa wanted to deliver Nina to. Was Nina secretly Selena’s twin?
“Good,” the Alpha King said with a warm smile. “You can show him to his room. We’ll meet again for dinner later to discuss our plans.”
Before I could protest, the princess suddenly grabbed me by the arm with a grin and pulled me out of the room. I glanced over my shoulder as I trailed behind her to see my father looking at me solemnly. He knew all along; I was sure of it. Somehow, he knew that this princess was somehow linked to Nina. That must have been why he wanted Nina out of the picture… But why? If she was Selena’s twin, why would she be hidden?
The door closed behind us and Selena led me through a long hallway. She intertwined her thin fingers with mine and flicked her hair over her shoulder, looking up at me with a grin.
“I’m so happy to finally meet you,” she said in a sing-song voice. “Did you like my scarf?”
Selena laughed. “It’s alright. I’m sure you’ve had a very long day, and you re very tired.” She led me to the end of the hallway, then up a flight of stairs. The hallway on the second floor widened. Our footsteps echoed on the shiny
marble floors, and I couldn’t help but gaze at her long, dark hair as she walked in front of me. It was as if she really was Nina… But she wasn’t. And although her scent overwhelmed me and aroused me, I couldn’t deny the fact that Nina’s scent was lingering on her skin, too.
Finally, she led me to my bedroom. It was a large room with a fireplace and an enormous window that overlooked the forest below. She showed me
around the room; there was an equally large bathroom attached to it with a tub in the center. I had always thought that my father’s expensive house was luxurious, but this was on another
level. Under any other circumstances, I would’ve been excited to experience the amenities, but I only had one thing on my mind.
“Can I get you anything else?” Selena asked once she finished her tour. She cocked her head as she looked at me, giving her a cute look that, once again, would have aroused me even more under normal circumstances.
“Um… No, thanks,” I said. Selena nodded and turned on her heel. She walked over to the door, but as she opened it and stepped out, I couldn’t contain my curiosity any further. ” Wait!” I said, stopping her. She turned and looked back at me with a smile, but there was also something dark behind her eyes that I couldn’t quite place my finger on. It was unsettling, to say the least.
“Yes?” she said.
“Um… Do you… You don’t…”
“Spit it out, silly!” she interjected with a laugh.
I felt my face get hot. “Do you have a twin?” I asked.
Selena’s sweet face suddenly fell, the darkness hidden behind her eyes coming out and taking over her entire visage. She slowly stepped back into the room and shut the door behind her. I felt my heart pulse as I realized that I must have struck a chord with her.
“What makes you say that?” she growled.
“You just… You look like someone I know,” I said. “Her name is Nina. She’s missing. Someone took her to deliver her to someone known as-”
“The Sister,” she replied. I nodded, and Selena rolled her eyes and sighed. Her sweetness had completely faded now, entirely replaced by a sinister feeling that I couldn’t shake. I felt as though her true self came out now. “Fine,” she said, crossing over to the bed and sitting down. “Since you’re going to be my husband, I suppose we shouldn’t have any secrets… But you have to swear not to tell my father.”
“I won’t say a word,” I said. “I just want to know where she is, and that she’s safe.”
Selena waved her hand dismissively
and looked down her nose at me.” She’s fine. I’ve made sure she’s quite comfortable. I’ve put her in a nice little prison that she can live out her days in, where no one will ever find her.”
“You… Imprisoned Nina?” I asked. I felt rage begin to bubble up inside of me, and my hands curled up into fists at my sides.
“Oh, relax,” she said, checking her nails nonchalantly. “She’s fine. I’m not a monster. But you see, she poses too much of a threat… Not only to our marriage, but my status as the sole heir to the throne. I’m daddy’s favorite. I’m the Luna’s favorite. If she were to suddenly show up, it would only throw a wrench into things.”
I frowned and shook my head. All of this over a mate and a royal status? I knew that Nina would never want to be a princess anyway – why not leave her be? Was this princess really that frightened of Nina, or was she just spoiled?
“So she is your twin,” I said. “But… The Alpha King only has one daughter.”
Selena shrugged. “Only one living daughter; or so they thought. You see, when I was a baby, there was an attack on the royal family. It was right after my mother died during childbirth. Crescent assassins broke into the palace when my daddy was in mourning, and they tried to kill us – but they failed. Their poison didn’t work, and they were caught trying to kidnap myself and Nina. The guards only managed to catch one of the assassins. The one that was carrying me.”
“And the one that was carrying Nina…”
“He got away,” Selena replied. Everyone thought that Nina was dead. I grew up being the only princess, and I like being the only princess. So, when I found out that Nina wasn’t dead, but that one of the assassins had taken pity on her and dumped her off at a human’s home, I decided that I couldn’t run the risk of her ruining everything.”
So… Selena truly was just a spoiled little girl who couldn’t handle the thought of sharing the spotlight.
Selena opened her mouth to say more, but I’d had enough. “If you want me to marry you, I want you to release her,” I demanded, storming up to her. Selena looked up at me with wide eyes as I towered over her. “Nina won’t bother anyone. Just let her go home.
“And what if I don’t?” she snarled, standing. “The deal’s already been made. The fate of your pack depends on this, and… I could easily tell my daddy not to help you.”
“Just let her go,” I whispered. I reached out my hand and cupped Selena’s face. She bit her lip, her eyelids fluttering as she looked up at me. “If you let her go, I promise I’ll love you and only you forever.”
