The Lycan King

Chapter 43. Better watch your back, Max


Max's house wasn't as big as ours. But it had a warm vibe that I loved. It had a round driveway in the front and the mansion was beige in colour with brown roofs. It was surrounded by many trees and gave a woodsy feel.

"Nice place." Nikolai said as we walked to the door which opened to the hallway meeting the living room. It really was. It was a mixture of modern, classic and woodsy interior which surprisingly mixed well.

"Thanks." Max smiled, looking truly proud.

Nat gave me a mischievous grin before he ran and jumped on Max's back, her arms around his neck and legs around his waist.

"I choose an obnoxious monkey." Nat giggled in his ears.

He put his arms immediately came around her legs to support her. "I'll be your?daddy?monkey then." Max chuckled and carried her inside.

I laughed at their antics. I was happy for Nat. She looked happier than ever and Max was good for her.

"Save the foreplay from the bedroom, Max." Nik rolled his eyes at them.

"Oh, if you saw the foreplay, you'd?know."?Nat winked at him, making everyone else except him laugh.

"Why do I even try?" Nik grumbled and grabbed my hand, dragging me inside.

On cue, their laugh rang louder.

Nat pressed a yellow and a red button as soon as she got off in the main living room.

"I'm hungry." She explained.

Two girls came in the living room. "Serve dinner for four." Nat instructed them.

"Three." Max corrected her.

They bowed and left quickly after that.

"Come, I'll show you to your room." Nat offered.

"Yes, thank you." I smiled.

"Are you okay?"?Nik mind-linked me.

"Yes."?I replied softly. I knew he was referring to the revelations in the office. And I understood where he was coming from. As much as it pained me, I was selfish to want to spend eternity with him, even if it meant we wouldn't have children.

"So this is your room." Nat opened the door and motioned us inside. "The bathroom is through that door," she pointed at the door the left, "and I'll have have fresh towels and everything sent to you in some time. Get fresh, and meet us downstairs for dinner?"

"Yes, of course. Thank you." I smiled at her.

"Anytime." She smiled back and left, closing the door behind her.

"Are you really okay? Talk to me, Ava." Nik asked.

"I'm upset but I understand. I wanted to have your pup and give you the joy of being a father. But I understand why you said no. And selfishly, I want to spend all the time I can with you. I don't want to die. I haven't spent nearly enough time with you." I placed my palm on his beating chest.

He was alive and well. We both our. Thats all we need. Each other. No one and nothing else.

Her circled his arms around my waist. "I love you. And you are amazing. Have I told you that?" He asked.

"I love you too. And I'm not sure if I remember properly." I smiled, looking up at him.

"Then I'll just have to tell you again and again." He kissed my lips.

"That sounds like a nice idea but we should go down, they must be waiting for us." I said against his lips.

Nik only smiled and opened the door behind me.

We walked out to see Nat and Max step out of a room. We followed them to the dining room and saw that everything was already placed.

We sat on the table and them Max motioned one of his slaves to serve us.

"How is everything in the pack?" Max asked Nik.

"Its going fine. There are a couple of minor things. But nothing I can't handle." He replied.

"Thats, good. I'm happy for you, brother." Max smiled at him in return.

Max pointed his finger on the floor besides him and looked at one of his slave. She immediately came forward and extended her hand. He grabbed it before biting it her wrist and started drinking her blood.

I could sense that the girl was in pain but as a perfect slave, she remained quiet and still. I wanted to say something. Do something to help her. If she just cut her hand and squeezed the blood out into a cup, it wouldn't hurt as much.

"You will not do anything, Ava. Max has been hospitable enough to invite is into his home. I told you how things work in this world. Just ignore it if you don't like it."?Nik mind linked me.

I pressed my lips together and did as he said. He was right, as always.

"Also, Avalyn killed Vasilik. She is the Queen of Mozog now." Nik said conversationally.

"Killed the centuries old fucker? I'd love to hear what happened." Max looked at me.

"When I first discovered my magic, we didn't know what it was. So Vladimir called Rhazien, a friend of his who he thought could help us. So after a couple of days when Nik was away, Vasilik came, demanding to know why Rhazien had visited us. When he didn't get the answers he wanted, he did something mentally—"

"Tried to fry our brains. Literally." Nik added.

"But for some reason, it didn't work on me. He had brought his men who tried to capture me but I killed them. By this time, Nik came back and Vasilik got him under his control too. He was about to kill Nik." It still pissed me off. "It made me very angry and then I used my powers and killed him." I continued, trying my best to ignore the girl in pain.

"Your powers must be really strong to kill such an old vampire. A king at that." He looked amazed.

"All I knew is that I rather die myself than let anything happen to Nik." I replied and looked at Nik. When I saw him in pain, that was all it took for me to loose it.

"No one's dying. Especially not you." Nik growled.
