The Lycan King

Chapter 61. One big happy family


My eyes fluttered open and I saw a blurry figure in front of me.

"Ava!" Nik said and rushed to my side. I opened my eyes and smiled lazily at him. I had a good sleep. My thoughts are still not coherent.

"What time is it?" I mumbled and rolled around. I haven't slept in, in so long.

"Nine am." He relied. All the mornings events registered in my mind. Nik's weird behaviour, the morning glories, Max's exorcism. Oh god. I need to get up. I need to check up on him. "It's the next day Ava. You've been asleep for almost thirty hours now." His face was blank but his eyes were filled with worry and the small crease between his brows meant he was stressed too.

"I feel good now." I replied, the laziness evident in my tone. "A bit hungry." I got off the bed and realised I was in my pyjama shorts and a tshirt of Nik's.

Smiling at the thought of him changing me in my sleep, I walked to him and pecked his cheek.

"Let's go get you some breakfast." He caressed my cheek with his thumb.

My eyes widened. "You'll make breakfast?" Does he even know how to cook?

His eyes softened. "Ya, I'll make you breakfast."

We both walked to the kitchen, me more energetically at the thought of him making me something. This will be a first for both of us. Usually it was me who cooked breakfast for him every morning, now it will be him cooking breakfast for me.

I settled on one of the high stools and placed my elbows on the counter, my hands supporting my chin.

"Do you need anything, Alpha, Luna?" Irina quickly came in.

"No. You can leave," Nik dismissed her before turning to me.

"What do you like for breakfast?" A tint of pink covered his cheeks. His skin was tanned so it wasn't very visible but I caught it. Is he embarrassed to cook?

I bit my lip. Yes, he is my mate but he is still an Alpha.?My?Alpha. He shouldn't have to cook for me. For anyone, really. "Maybe I should just make it myself of ask Irina—"

"No." He said immediately. "I'm not embarrassed to cook for you. I'm embarrassed to not know my mate's favourite breakfast dish."


A small smile appeared on my lips. He is so adorable. "I like a cup of cold coffee and egg toast or pancakes. But let's just do cold coffee and waffles today?" Those were easy. And we had a ready waffle mix anyways. Something told me that Nik using the stove would be a recipe for disaster.

"Sure. You'll have to walk me through, Love. I don't know shit about cooking." He snorted.

"Fine..." so we spent the rest of the morning like that. With me telling him what to do and him moving around the kitchen in a pink apron with red hearts on it. It was a sight to see. It couldn't crack the eggs just right, which resulted in five eggs splattered on the counter and on the floor.

His ego took a hit when I took over and cracked the eggs in a single shot. It was funny to see him grumble, cursing the 'damn fucking asshat eggs'. He whisked the final batter and then poured some in the waffle makers.

The cold coffee was easy so I didn't have to guide him much and he made a couple of more waffles on the side.

"Nutella?" He asked. He removed the nutella jar after I nodded and smeared it over the last waffle. After he was done, he shifted them on a clean plate and placed it in front of me along with the cup of cold coffee.

"This is more work than training. I can't believe you do this everyday." He released a breath.

I chuckled. "Thank you." And then sipped the cold coffee. It was better than what I usually make somehow. The waffles too. But I think it was because Nik made it for me. Everything is better when he is involved.

"I would like to say anytime, but I really don't want to lie." He chuckled. "So I'll just say sometimes."

"I'm okay with that." I smiled as I devoured my breakfast. It had taken him almost an hour and a half to make it and I was proud of him.

"Now?that's?a sight to see." Dimitri entered, a flash going off from his cell phone. He clicked a picture of Nik in the apron.

I choked back a laugh at Nik's expression. "You fucking dick! Delete it." He growled, chasing Dimitri around the kitchen. It was so nice to see Nik actually living his life like this. He has too much on his plate. Sometimes, he needs to sit back and relax with his family. Everyone here clearly loves him. He doesn't remember that often enough.

I laughed at the brothers as I got off the stool and placed my plate in the sink.

"Avalyn! Save me from the big bad Alpha." Dimitri clutched my shoulders, hiding behind me as Nik stood was in front of me. I'm sure it's a funny sight. I'm five four and both the men are a good few inches over six. A good head taller than me. I fail to see how I will be able to protect Dimitri from Nik.

"If anyone sees that picture the—"

"You know we are bound by blood right? She will protect me. You can't kill me." Dimitri smirked.

"But I can still do a fist construction of your face if you don't take your hands off her." He grumbled.

"Oops." Dimitri took his hands from my shoulders and laughed. "Twenty five fucking years and I finally catch you in a?compromising?position. No way in hell I'm giving up this picture."

A smile tugged on Nik's face. "Max is here. We can team up against you, as always. Don't forget about that."

Dimitri's smile faltered. "I can take him."

"We will see about that." Max entered the kitchen. Only in boxers. I covered my face with my hands and my cheeks heated up.

"Wear some clothes you dumbass." Nik growled, pulling me in his chest and covering my face.

"I'll faint if I don't have blood right now." Max grumbled. "Where are the fucking slaves?" He groaned.

"Irina!" Nik snapped and Irina scrambled in the kitchen.
