There was a soft knock on the door with a three seconds pause. The second wasn as mellow

as the first and the third one which was a bit harder and firmer roused Kayla from her sleep as

she groaned and pulled the blanket over her shoulder.

She was partially awake but kept her eyes closed. Her eyelids felt heavy and she was about to

drift back to sleep when the door creaked open and the sound of heels clacking along the floor


”Oh why my! You
e still in bed Kayla? ” A familiar voice said, causing her to stir in bed. She

groaned and stretched her legs then turned her head towards the voice.

She slowly opened her eyes and could see a figure of average height, slim with beautiful long

red hair walking towards the drapery.

Everything seemed blurry.

She itched her eyes for a bit and opened them almost immediately when she heard the zipping

sound of the drape being drawn to the side.

The rays from the sun flooded the room with a blinding flash causing Kayla to squint as she

mumbled something opaque. She slowly opened her eyes letting them adjust to the lighting.

”Are you pregnant young lady? ” The woman asked with a tone of amusement lacing her voice.

She had a very mellifluous voice, soft and smooth, it was very pleasing to the ear. It also had a

very subtle edge to it which suggested that she was teasing her daughter.

”Mom! ” Kayla whined as she sat up, wide-eyed. Her mother chuckled and shook her head.

”Just teasing baby… just teasing, ” Her mom said.

She went over to the dresser, picked up a brush, and went back to sit on the bed a few inches

away from Kayla who out of impulse turned her back to her.

Her mom smiled.

She took a handful of Kaylas hair and began brushing it gently.

Why was her hair so wiry? She thought as she combed out the tangles.

Kayla mustn have been applying the essentials for her hair, she concluded as she took another

handful and kept brushing. Brushing Kaylas hair usually took a while and she enjoyed the

excuse of spending a long time with Kayla.

”Mrs. Alexander? ”

Her secretary suddenly entered the room and called for her, disrupting her thoughts almost


Kaylas mum frowned at this. She hated it when her time with her daughter got disrupted.

”I assume you walked through the doors and you didn just appear in this room, ” she said as

she went back to brushing Kaylas hair.

She spoke so calmly yet her words sent chills down her secretarys spine making her quiver in


”Yes —yes Mrs. Alexander. ” She spoke falteringly.

”Next time you come into a room without knocking first, Id make a necklace out of your fingers.

Do you understand? ”

The secretary nodded, trembling with fear. As honeyed as her voice was and even as slender

and small as she looked Mrs. Alexander could also be very baleful. She was of course the Luna

of the pack, coupled with a very strong successful Alpha, she was strapping. No one dared

question her.

”Speak, ” she ordered.

”The client from Algatron is here. Your attention is needed. ” She paused. ”Mrs. Alexander, ” she

added for maximum respect.

”Mr. Algaso is here? How shocking. ” She pulled Kaylas hair back, twisting it in a very gentle

way, then she wrapped it in a circular coil around itself and secured it with a bobby pin.

”Where is Marcus by the way? Haven seen him since dinner last night. ” She looked at Kayla

who frowned.

”Why are you looking at me, mom? Hes probably somewhere pissing off someone, as usual, I

mean how hard could it be to find him just looking for trouble and hed be there. ”

The Luna chuckled.

”Respect your brother Kayla, things come to worse, hed be the next Alpha

and youd have just him to protect you

”People only need protection when they
e into dangerous stuff. All I do is go to school and paint

when Im home. You barely see you, mother. ”

”Theres one thing you need to know Kayla, if you have your eyes on two people, youd have 6 peoples eyes boring holes into your back. ”

”What does that even mean? ” Kayla made a face.

Mrs. Alexander stood up and straightened her skirt. She stretched out her hand as she held the

comb towards her secretary who dashed to collect it and placed it on the dresser.

”It means you can never tell who is watching you so be careful and never slack. Always be on

guard, you would always need protection and I have every confidence in Marcus to give it to

you. ”

She leaned forward and kissed Kayla on her forehead before heading out with the secretary.

Kayla finally had some alone time. She got up and locked the door. She walked back to her bed

and dropped on it with only one thought on her mind. Marcus.

Thinking about him made her frisson with excitement. She had always had a very big crush on

him but was too scared to show it and also sometimes very disgusted by her feelings because

he was her brother even though not biologically.

She was adopted into the family when she was thirteen. Her birth parents had died at a

construction site or so she was told and she had been living at the orphanage since she was

four before the Alexanders adopted her. She never fit in with the rest of the kids and was always

picked on probably because she was a short, miniature kid whereas the other kids were tall and


She wasn even that short, Kayla thought.

She was going to be eighteen in a few months and she was five foot five. She sighed and

closed her eyes slowly drifting into fanta
