The Lycan King

Chapter 82. Helicopters and Rocks


"Sometimes, Nikolai, you shock me with just how cruel you can be."

"I'm going to see Andrei because unlike you, I actually consider him my brother and love him like one. And don't worry, I won't heal him, I wouldn't want to give you an opportunity to whip me too."

"She'll come around." Natalia patted my shoulder. I snapped out of my thoughts and realised almost everyone were already gone. "She just doesn't understand the workings of our pack entirely."

I sighed. "I know. It's just?? I've never seen her that pissed. Not even the day when she saw us in the office."

"That's because deep down she knew there was more to the story than what she saw. And right now, she knows the entire story and then saw what happened. She just needs time to cool down." She shrugged. "Let's go, I'm missing Vermin."

I smirked. "Let's go take our frustrations out on him." This was going to be so much fun.? Much better than going on a run to let my frustrations out.

The both of us made our way back to the house in silence. The only thing going on in my mind was Ava. She's upset. But I'm sure she just needs time. She's been doing so good recently, she understands our world so much better now. And she'll soon see why I had to punish Andrei too. I'm sure of it.

"Max is calling us." Nat said when we entered the mansion. The tone said that it is something important.

"Where is he?"

"My office." She replied and I quickly climbed up the steps and entered Nat's office that she used when she is here.

Max was hunched over the desk, drawing something.

"One of my contacts said that the news that Emilio is dead had spread throughout the pack. Emmanuel has taken the Alpha position again. And young wolves think that he is too old. They are planning to challenge him for a duel to death to fight for the title of Alpha. But he's not that old and the chances of them winning are sparse." A wolf is in his prime for at least two centuries, only after that the age starts showing.

"We cannot take the chance," I murmured. He's not a true Alpha, he's not?that? much stronger than the rest of the wolves. If the opponent wolf is actually?really?good, he might win.

"Exactly. They are planning to challenge him today. We have to reach there before the fight if we want Emmanuel alive." Max said.


"If they have a decent head on top of their shoulders, they will do it during the day time because the presence of the moon strengthens us. And Emmanuel will grow much more stronger than the others considering he is the beta." I whispered.

"It's twelve right now. How long will it take us to reach there?"

"Six hours. We will have to fight against the patrol. That will take up more time. Bringing more people would mean it will take more time. But we will need numbers if we don't want them to attack us on sight." I replied but then an idea clicked in my head. "But we have their Alpha. Since Emilio is alive, what he says, will go. And we have Avalyn. And Mary."

A grin formed on Max's face. "I'll call her and tell her to get there right as soon as possible. I'll say it's an emergency. But we will still need to leave right away, I need Emmanuel alive." He cracked his knuckles.

A smirk formed on my face. "We will gave fun torturing the father- son duo. My head is already buzzing with ideas."

I told Tessa and April to pack clothes and weapons for Ava and I in separate bags for cold weather before I ran all the way to the hospital. Max and I had discussed everything while Natalia went to prepare and get Vermin.

Max had a friend who could sneak us in. But we had to go to Montana Pack through a helicopter and then cover some distance in foot. And I only have one helicopter on stand by right now. So the only ones going were Ava, Max, Natalia, Vermin and I. We would pick up Mary on the way.

The hospital in the pack was a three flood building which has the basic and werewolf and vampire specific treatments that happen. Anything other than that, we had to go to Greenwich. It had a good hospital with good doctors. And a couple of doctors knew about us and we pay them well enough to keep our race's existence a secret and be discrete.
