My Hockey Alpha Chapter 259 My Hockey Alpha #Chapter 259: The Waiting Game Nina After our shared passion in the shower, Enzo and I quickly dried off and got dressed. In my flustered state, I almost forgot that I had hidden vials of the antidote in my jacket; it wasn’t until I heard them clinking against each other from my haste that I realized that I had almost given myself away, and slower down so as not to reveal my plan to Enzo; if he found out, he would surely not let me go through with the plan.
Thankfully, he didn’t notice the sound of the vials clinking together.
Something about having to take on the role of Alpha made Enzo more dominant in the shower, but I loved every moment of it. After we got dressed, however, he pulled me close and planted a kiss on my forehead. “I hope you liked that,” he whispered. “I hope it wasn’t too much.”
I shook my head and blushed deeply. “I… I think I like that side of you,” I admitted. Since I had only ever had sex with Enzo, my experiences weren’t varied. It made me happy that we could try new things together, and I hoped that I would get to see more of this side of him. Something about it made my wolf react strongly too, and as we met up with our friends and made our way to the edge of town to wait for the rogues, I felt her bristling with excitement inside of me. “Took you guys long enough,” Matt said as we made our way to the edge of town.
“Everything okay?” Enzo nodded. I stared down at the ground to hide the fact that my face was turning red again, but when I looked up, I saw Lori giving me a knowing glance with a smirk on her face. We arrived at the edge of town, where the rest of the hockey team was waiting. As we approached, I noticed that there were a lot of other people there as well. Bryce, from the hockey team, jogged up to us.
“A bunch of the townspeople want to fight,” he said. “We told them they could hide in the tunnels, but they insisted.” I glanced over at Bryce’s shoulder at the crowd of people who had gathered. Pickup trucks lined the entrance of the town like a barricade, and dozens of people — men and women — with shotguns and other homemade weapons patrolled the road. As I looked at the crowd, I instantly recognized a familiar pickup truck.
“It’s alright,” Enzo said to Bryce. “We could use the— Nina, where are you going?” I had begun to run off toward the familiar pickup truck, and just gave Enzo a wave over my shoulder. When I ran up to the truck, my eyes widened as I saw the older couple sitting inside. “Dan? Laura?” I called. The older couple both perked up and looked over at me. Their faces lit up upon seeing me, and both of them swung the truck doors open and ran over to me. Just as I had thought, it was indeed the older couple who saved me when James shot me in the leg.
“Well, I’ll be damned!” Dan said, taking off his baseball hat. “You made it after all!” “Oh, sweetie, we were so worried about you!” Laura beamed as she hugged me tightly. “I said to Dan after we let you go, ‘We should’a never let that little girl go!’” “I can’t thank you two enough,” I said with tears in my eyes. “Thanks to your help, I was able to get the antidote and save our campus.
” Laura’s eyes widened. “So you’re the one who’s been making all of that blue stuff?” I nodded, and she gasped. “You’ve saved so many lives! Our daughter was… changed, but the blue stuff saved her. It’s us who should be thanking you.” Just then, Enzo and the others walked up to us. Enzo gave me a puzzled look. “This is…” I looked up at Enzo, unsure of what to call him. We had never put a label on our relationship. We had spent so long battling against the idea of being in a relationship, and then it became so complicated after that. Everything had felt so rushed lately too that we hadn’t had a chance to talk about it.
“I’m her boyfriend, Enzo,” Enzo interrupted, sticking his hand out to shake Dan’s and Laura’s. My face went red as he said this; to think that he was my boyfriend now… I couldn’t fathom it, even though we had just had rough, kinky sex in the locker rooms twenty minutes prior. Dan looked Enzo up and down, then smiled. “You got a good girl here,” he said. “Take good care of her.” “
Dan and Laura got the bullet out and kept me alive when James…” My voice faltered, but I didn’t need to say anymore. Enzo already knew it all. He nodded solemnly, then cleared his throat. “Thank you,” he said. “Are you joining the fight?” Dan nodded vigorously. “Of course. We have to! This is our home!” Enzo managed a slight smile and looked around at the crowd. More people had gathered around the entrance to the town.
We had a whole militia of townspeople and students who wanted to fight to protect our town. I just hoped that they would stand a chance against the rogues. After that, we waited for a long time. Enzo sent the hockey team to patrol up and down the road that led to the town, and Enzo, Matt, and I stayed behind to get people ready to fight. However, hours were spent like this.
The rogues never came. Even as the cold winter sun began to lower over the mountains, casting the landscape in a dark blue tinge, the rogues still never came. I began to wonder if this was a big fake-out. Were they just distracting us so that they could get us off guard at another time? “Luke, I thought you said it would be a few hours at the most,” Enzo said, sounding a little agitated.
Luke nodded. “My spies saw them headed this way. I don’t know… Maybe they changed course?” Enzo shook his head. “Maybe we should…” Suddenly, his voice faded away. He was still speaking with Luke, but they both suddenly felt very distant and muffled. I felt as though I was launched a hundred meters away, and it felt as though everything was crushing in on me. “They’re coming.” My wolf’s voice echoed clearly in my mind. I felt as though I was floating above everything else, looking down over the trees and the roads.
And in the distance, not far from the town… The rogues. They were sneaking up on us. I couldn’t see it, but I could feel it. They had snuck past our patrols; they were too smart for rogues. Their genetically engineered leader had outsmarted us. I felt myself return to my body, and quickly turned to look at Enzo. My heart was racing. I opened my mouth to warn him, to tell him that we were about to be ambushed…
But it was too late. We heard screams to our left. We spun around to see that a rogue had leaped out of the woods and pounced on someone. Gunshots. More screaming. More rogues. “Nina, please run,” Enzo said. I could tell that he was already beginning to shift. “Go with Luke.”
I shook my head and took a few stumbling steps backwards as I saw more rogues come and pounce on terrified townspeople, whose bullets were doing nothing. Luke’s hand brushed mine as he tried to pull me away, but I was frozen in terror. Enzo shifted and growled at me, warning me to leave, before he took off with Matt into the fray. “Nina!” Luke shouted, tugging me. “Come on! Let’s go! There’s too many—” Suddenly, I looked up at the road and met two glowing yellow eyes. It was the rogue leader. And he was looking right at me.
