Roman The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins chapitre Chapitre 2

Evelyn POV

Why was she here? What was she doing here?

I try to meet Reuben’s eyes to get an indication of his emotions at her arrival, but his are locked on the female that seems to be acting flustered at my disturbing them.

Her shiny black hair that was long in the photographs, was now cut into a long stylish bob. She was wearing a very cleavage revealing bright pink top, tight white jeans and pink heels with sparkling gems. Her clothes were nothing like mine and I felt quite ugly in my baggy long black t-shirt and black leggings.

“Oh, you must be Evelyn! It’s nice to finally meet you, I’m like Reuben’s little sister, I am….” She starts a little too excitable for my liking, so I cut her off.

“Vicky!” I say as Vicky continues to hold my gaze until she looks at me, from top to toe, taking me in. If I wasn’t watching her, I think she would have sneered at my appearance. My wolf had a sense of nastiness from her, a coldness that she was born with. Reuben is cold in nature, but my wolf can sense that he is capable of warmth, that he holds it back for some reason. Holds it back because of her.

“I am sorry to have descended like this unannounced, I have come into some difficulties that I knew only Reuben could help with!” She says as she places her hand on my husband’s upper arm, stroking it. I feel sick just watching her touching my husband, the father of the child growing in my tummy.

“I hope you don’t mind me being here, it would be nice to get to know my sister-in-law anyhow!” She says with a smile that doesn’t reach her eyes. Sister-in-law? That’s a bit rich, isn’t it? I’ve seen the photographs, I know what they were to one another.

Reuben refuses to meet my gaze, his eyes remain locked on Vicky. Was he picking up on me being uncomfortable with her sudden appearance.

“Vicky’s pack has been attacked by rogues, she only just made it out alive.” Reuben finally speaks, earning a gasp from me.

“Naturally we will shelter her!” Is he ordering or asking?

“Of course.” I immediately agree, she was lucky to still be alive.

“Where will Vicky stay?” We had a few guest houses available near the borders that I could get the staff to clean instantly.

“She can stay in my old rooms here in the Alpha house!” My heart sinks at his offering to her.

“Oh no I couldn’t possible do that, I’ll just stay in the front guest room.”

I groan internally at her response. She could have offered to stay in the guest houses rather than here in the alpha mansion.

“They are my rooms…” I awkwardly respond, my face turning bright red. She’ll now know that we do not share the alpha rooms together.

“It’s settled then, my old rooms.” He confirms to Vicky with a smile.

“Very good. I’ll ask the catering staff to speak with you regarding your food preferences.” I agree to Reuben’s request, trying to maintain my luna approach.

“You are a star! Thank you, Evelyn.” She too sweetly offers holding her arms out to embrace me. My wolf not wanting to be touched by her, growls internally which results in me taking a sidestep from her. Dodging her embrace.

“I’ll ask the staff to prepare your rooms now.” I nod before hastily exiting the room before Reuben could sense my inner turmoil.

As I exit the office, I leave the door slightly ajar. As I walk away, I hear the soft murmuring and giggling of Vicky’s voice. Were they talking about me? I take a deep breath in, trying to calm my wolf’s jealousy. When I realised something. I was so taken aback by Vicky’s arrival that I didn’t tell Reuben about the baby. I’ll have to keep it quiet for now, until she leaves.

….

I returned to Noah’s office in the medical centre, he was the only true companion I had after all. I told him that I didn’t get a chance to tell Reuben about the baby because of Vicky making a sudden appearance back into the Red Stone Pack.
