The Lycan King

Chapter 23. Run


"I have a lot of questions Nikolai." I told him as I placed a stack of pancakes in front of him.

"And I have one; where is my chocolate?" He frowned.

"Right here." I chuckled as I opened the nutella jar and removed some using a butter knife. I smeared it over the pancakes just as he liked.

"I wasn't talking about that." He said before he took my hand and swiped my finger over his chocolatey pancakes and I yelped.

"Mmm." He exaggerated his moan as he licked the chocolate off my fingers.

I blushed as I looked around to see no one was around. Nikolai woke up in a playful mood and I was either joining in on the fun, giggling or blushing. I loved this Nikolai. It wasn't very often that he sat next to me and let loose. He was always either thinking about work or worrying about me.

He winked at me and then started eating his breakfast.

"What did you want to ask?" He asked after sometime, oblivious to my ogling.

"About yesterday. Why didn't you take the pregnant woman and the man who saved his mate? But you took a man who didn't want follow the rules." I frowned.

"Do you know about Vladimir's gift?" He asked.

I nodded. Sofiya had told me about it.

"We had crafted scenarios for every werewolf according to their reasons. They are such that only a good wolf or one who repents their mistakes will pass the test." He told me.

"What was her scenario?" I asked.

"Vladimir had whispered 'love or child' in her ear. Love here would mean something she loves the most in the world or her baby. She chose love- love for power. She slept with the Alpha and gave him a condom in which she had poked a hole, hoping that having a child together will increase her chances of him choosing her as his mate." He rolled his eyes.

I gaped at him. That was cruel. She basically spoilt her and her child's life for a title. But somehow, it didn't shock me. People have done much more for power.

"And how did you know all this?" She said her reason and was given her scenario hardly a minute later.

"Simple. Everyone is required to fill an application in which they state their reasons. And I have enough experience to judge people and craft the scenarios accordingly." He smiled.

"What about John? He had killed someone to protect his mate." I asked.

"He is a liar. The girl wasn't his mate. He wanted to mate her. And the man whom he killed was the girl's mate." He said softly.

My lips parted. That girl must have been through so much. I can't even imagine what would happen to me if someone even tried to harm Nikolai.

"And you'll take him the next time if he repents it?" My heart thudded.

"I killed him,?Moya Lyubov. I decide the fate of the ones who enter my court. I don't forgive liars and the rules are clearly written in the application, it was his mistake that he didn't follow. He neither regretted his mistake nor tried to correct it when he was given a second chance." He said. There was an underlying anger in his tone.

I was satisfied with all the answers he had given me.

"You are an amazing Alpha, Nik." I smiled as I leaned over the counter to kiss him.

"And you will be too. I expect you to sit next to me in the court hearings from now on and stand with me during pack meetings." Master told me.

I nodded hesitantly. I wasn't sure if I would do a good job. But if Master wanted, I'd do my best.

"Don't worry, you'll do great and I'll be right next to you." He smiled.
