The Lycan King

Chapter 55. Heart of Gold


I tried to pull my hand from his grasp but he didn't budge. My eyes widen as I saw Leikos and Darius walk out in front of me.

"Dimitri. What are you doing? Please! Dimitri! Leave me." I tried to wretch my hand away from his tight grasp.

I looked at the two men who had vicious smirks in their faces.

Darius walked towards me and grabbed my face. "Pretty little thing, isn't she?" He chuckled darkly.

"Why do you think Nikolai is stuck to her like a fucking leech?" Dimitri laughed maliciously.

I didn't recognise him.

Tears grew in my eyes as I looked at him. "Dimitri." A whisper left my mouth. "I considered you my brother. Nik consi—"

"Shut up." He growled. "I've had enough of your talking for the night. My fucking ears are bleeding."

"I saved you!" I sobbed. How can he do this? We were fine a couple of hours ago!

Is this really true? Is he really betraying us? His entire pack? Especially after I saved him today?

He let out a harsh laugh. "That was all a ploy. They wanted to see if you were were a Faye. I showed them. And I have Nikolai's trust. Enough to let him let me take you out alone like this."

My chin trembled as I looked in the face of a man I did not realise. His dark eyes didn't have the love and humour they usually held. He looked more...darker somehow. Dangerous.

My heart stammered. ""

I tried to mind-link Nikolai but I couldn't feel him.

"Don't try to mind-link him. I mixed wolfsbane in your drink. You won't be able to use your powers either." He said.

Worry gripped my heart. What will I do now?

I have no option other than being strong. If I'm going to die right now, I'd rather die strong, with my head held high than with tears in my eyes and begging the traitor.

I reigned in my tears and spat, "You disgust me."

"I've been called worse." He said, unaffected.

"Enough." Darius hissed at both of us.

"I've not had such a beauty beneath me since a long time." He caressed my cheek with the back of his fingers.

Never in my life will I let anyone else touch me.

I kicked him in his ballsack, making him fall on his knees in front of me. Exactly where he belongs. And only my hands were bound, not legs.

"What do you want?" I demanded from Leikos as he watched Darius writhe on the floor. Dimitri was a lost cause. I was done talking to him.

"Your heart." He said.

"Why?" He wants my heart?

"I will be truly immortal. Nothing will kill me." He grinned.


I gulped.

I tried to take a step back but Dimitri had a tight hold on me.

I was trapped and had no where to go.

"You fucking cunt." Darius stood back up. "I will fuck you so hard that your mother will feel it in her pussy." He snarled.

Anger filled me. His disgusting mouth doesn't even deserve to talk about my mother.

"Don't you fucking talk about her." I tried to kick him in the balls again but he was quick and caught my knee.

"Not so fast." Dimitri said and pulled me, making me stand besides him. "I want my payment first." He growled.

"Which you will get. Give her to me!" Darius tried to get a hold of me but Dimitri punched him so he fell back.

"She is mine until you give me my payment!" Dimitri snarled.

"Bring her out." Darius hissed as his red eyes fell on me.

Bring whom out?

Two men brought out Sofiya. One of her eye was swollen shut and her lip was torn.

I gasped and tears grew in my eyes.

Was this the reason Dimitri was doing this?

"You told me you haven't touched her." Dimitri growled loudly.
