The Lycan King

Chapter 39. Doubts


My legs felt heavy as I walked to my unconscious brother. I picked up his left hand and immediately dropped it when he let out a low, pain-filled groan.

I inspected the bite.

The visible flesh had already blackened and the tatters of the skin around was turning a dark greenish-blue in colour. The veins around the bite were slowly turning black too.

The poison was slowly spreading to his entire body.

"What happens now?" I asked Grace.

"The rest of the wounds will heal in a couple of days. It's the bite that worries me, Alpha Nikolai. I don't have full knowledge on how to treat a vampire bite." She replied.

"Who will have a full knowledge?" I asked.

"There is no real cure for a vampire's bite. There are herbs that can slow it down but that means extending his life for a couple of years and living in constant pain. He will feel the poison spreading in his body every second. Not a lot of people choose to do it." Grace replied.

"But I had read in a book before I was kicked out of my old pack that extracting the vampire's saliva from the wound will help. But the rest of the pages were too faded to be coherent so I'm not sure how to do it. And I'm not sure how accurate that is." She added.

There is no way I am going to let Mikhail die.

"Do whatever you can. I'll try to arrange something." I replied. I'll talk to Rhazien and Vladimir. There has to be a cure.

"Yes, Alpha." She replied as she tied up the bandaid on his mid-rift.

"What is the extent of his injuries?" I asked.

"He has a knife wound in his stomach that caused internal bleeding that worries me right now. He also has four bruised ribs, two are broken." She replied.

That would take a couple of days max to heal. Internal bleeding would take more time but what really worried me was the bite.

I sighed and sat on the bed besides his sleeping form. I saw Grace mix different leaves as she kept mumbling chants under her breath before she applied it on his gnash.

The door opened and Rhazien stepped in.

"Where is Bailey?" I asked.

"Passed out on the couch. I've told two wolves to keep watch." He replied distractedly as he eyed Jessica, his eyes blood red.

"Step aside." He ordered Tessa who scrambled to move away.

He knelt in front of Jessica and bit his wrist and put it in front of her mouth. "Drink." He whispered, his voice unnaturally soft.

Jessica looked up at him with hazy eyes and did as he said,?without complaint!

I will never understand women.

"Is she Jessica Mathers?" He asked.

"Yes." I replied. Understanding dawned on me. His red eyes should have been a give away. Especially since he was an ancient and wouldn't loose control seeing or smelling blood.

"She's my beloved." He whispered, caressing her red hair.

"You've got your hands full." I muttered.

But he didn't pay attention to me, his eyes were only fixated on Jessica.

I let them be and looked at a grim Dimitri who was talking to Grace, asking about Mikhail.
