The Lycan King

Chapter 17. Being Brave


I sat aside like a?useless pet?and had seen a lot of my loved ones die but not anymore.

I saw two big cars coming coming and after three more shots, it went dead silent. I still didn't move, I was not sure what happened. My heart was beating so fast that I could hear it. I tried to calm myself but it was of no use, I just wanted Master safe, I wanted him alive. Tears formed in my eyes at the thought of something happening to him, at the thought of never seeing him again. I brushed them away, not wanting them to blur my vision. This is not the time to cry!

I couldn't see anything from my position when I heard the car two cars start. I prepared myself to shoot again if anyone came near me but I saw Master walking down the road, towards me, without hiding from the car and I knew they were his men. Everything was done, he was safe. I quickly stood up from behind the car and ran towards Master and jumped on him, hugging him to me. He had caught me and now my legs were around his waist and his arms tight around me. I sobbed in his neck.

"Everything is fine now, my Love, you are safe." He whispered softly in my ear. I shook my head in his neck, he had got it all wrong!

"I thought that something would have happened to?you, I was?so?scared for you." I whispered.

I didn't care what happened to me, a little pain didn't bother me anymore, I am used to it. Sometimes I even welcome it, it meant I was still alive, I could feel things and I was not just a play thing meant for others to use. His told tightened at my confession.

"I'm so happy that you are alright." I told him as he set me down.

"Why did you get out of the car when I specifically told you not to?" He asked me softly but I could hear the anger hidden underneath it.

"There are two people there, they were trying to shoot you so I shot them. One is dead and the other is....mutilated." I said for a better word and then pointed towards the alley. Then the reality settled in that I hurt two people, I shot two people, I killed a person! I eyes watered again.

Master's eyes fogged over for a second before I saw men get down from the cars and go there, then his eyes were on me, he was looking at me in awe.

"You did an amazing job,?Moya Lyubov. I don't want you to feel bad for those people. In our world, its kill or get killed. So do not feel guilty for hurting him or killing them, because they don't give a second thought before doing the same to innocents." He said whispering the last part while caressing my hair. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath, they were the?his?men. Nikolai didn't tell me but I just?knew. I wiped the remaining tears and nodded at Nikolai.

"Let's go home Ava." Nikolai said, opening my door for me. I got in and started putting everything back in the briefcase and put it in its place while Nikolai started the car.

There was one car in front of us and one car behind us as we drove home.

"I'm sorry that this spoiled our night." He sighed.

"It was still the one of the best nights I've ever had." I smiled at him.

"One of them? What are the others?" He asked smirking.

"The ones with you." I blushed and he chuckled.
