The Lycan King

Chapter 38. Begrudging Respect


"Follow me." I muttered to her and headed out.

The girl protested but Andrei shut her up and dragged her with us to the car.

"This is kidnapping!" She screamed. "Let me go!"

"Shut up." I growled and her mouth closed immediately. "What's your name?" I asked as I started the car. Andrei was sitting in the back with her.

"Felicity." She snapped.

"Real name." I gritted as I spun the car and drove deeper into Greenwich, which was the human town.

"Jessica." She muttered. "Jessica Mathers."

"Aren't you going to tell me your name?" She blurted after a minute.

"There is no need for you to know." Andrei said after I didn't reply to her. "All you need to know is that we will get you your sister but it will take time."

"But why? He's dead! I can just go and get her. I don't need you both! Why are you taking me anyways??Where?are you taking me?"

"I said shut up." I snarled. "I am taking you to a place to stay for a few days. You are not going to get out of there or say anything to anybody. Not one word. I will give you your sister in one week. I don't want a fucking word out of your mouth now."

She let out a hmph before crossing her arms and looking out of the window.

'Arrange for a female warrior to babysit her. She is going to try to escape and tell her to use force if necessary to keep her quiet.' I mind-linked Andrei.

'Yes Alpha.' He replied.

After fifteen minutes, we reached our destination, a cottage on the outskirts of Greenwich and the pack was near from here to travel easily. It had only one door and the two windows had grills so no one could go out. It was perfect for this situation.

I got out of the car and walked in the house. A brunette was already standing in the living room, knowing we had arrived.

"Name?" I asked.

"Bailey Adams, Alpha." She replied.

"Grant Adams your father?" I asked.

She nodded, her eyes softening for a second. Grant was a friend of mom's and I know is a good but hard man. He would have trained his daughter well.

'Bring her in.'?I told Andrei.

A minute later Andrei came in with Jessica in tow.

"This is Jessica Mathers. You will stay here with her and she is not allowed outside this house under any circumstance. Not unless any direct orders from me, Beta Dimitri, Andrei or Vladimir."

"Yes Alpha." She nodded.

"Whats the address of Kaleb Karwells?" I asked Jessica.

She grudgingly gave me the address after I glared at her.

"If you try to escape, I will let the police know that you killed Kaleb." With that being my last sentence, I whirled around and drove to Kaleb's house.

It was in a secluded area, surrounded by overgrown plants and trees. I brought my wolf forward and took a deep breath. I could smell only one human.?Good.

I looked around for any hidden cameras or a trap and when I found none, I and Andrei moved ahead silently. I broke in the locked door and found a girl kneeling by the shoe-rack, her legs spread, hands on her thighs and head bowed down.

She is trained.

All the doubts about her not knowing about us vanished.

"Stand up. Look at me." I said and the girl clumsily stood up and shuddered. When her eyes met mine, they widened.

"Your Master, Kaleb is dead." I spoke slowly so she could register it.

Her chin trembled but she remained perfectly still.

"I am not going to be your new Master and neither is he." I motioned towards Andrei. "You will not be touched or be punished. Unless you do exactly as I say." I said sharply.

She nodded frantically.

"What was Kaleb Karwells?" I asked her.

Her breath hitched before she said in a soft whisper, "a werewolf."

Just as I expected.

"Call in more people and comb the entire house. Find out every single piece of information on him. Trace the phone calls and messages on his phone." I said and passed him the phone I had picked up from Kaleb's suit.

"Find where Jerry is and tell him to meet me tomorrow. Find out who fired him and who hired Kaleb, I want him in the dungeon in one hour. Get information on every single business in town and the ones I own that had a change in managerial positions in the last two-three months." I told him.?

There was going to be an issue if I found snitches or backstabbers in my pack.

"Also send in a female in the office with some clothes in fifteen minutes."

"Yes Alpha." He replied and walked out of the house, starting on the work I had given him.

"Where is his office?" I asked the human.

"On the second floor, first door to the right." She said softly.

"Follow me." I said as I went to where she directed.

The office looked like it was already ransacked. But from the lack of any other smell than Kaleb's, I knew this was all his handy work.

I sat on the chair behind the desk and motioned her to sit on the chair in front of me.
