The Lycan King

Chapter 83. Montana Pack


"Where does the cave open up?" Nat asked Max's friend?? Symon.

"At the other end of this mountain. Then there is another mountain we have to cross, after which we will reach the pack." He replied.

"Are you a smuggler?" I asked. This is going to be my pack. I need to know.

Symon looked at me, his eyes judging. I held his eyes.

"After the death of Alpha Javier, Emmanuel took over. He shut down the import and export outside of the pack and kept relations with only Mystic Lupus Pack. We all know how that pack his." He said with venom. I nodded. Adrik was the worst Alpha in the history of all supernatural leaders. He treated his pack like shit and rationed everyone's food for some reason, all the while eating like a king every fucking day.

"The taxes increased and then came a time when people could not afford bread. Beer was cheaper than water. When Emilio took over, we all revolted so they eased a little on the rules but the pack is still a mess. We all do what we have to do to survive. You out of all must know that, Alpha Nikolai." Looks like I won't have to do much to worsen the condition of these fuckers.

"I do." I replied.

I saw Mary lower her eyes in shame.

"Who is she?" He jabbed his finger towards Mary.

"Mary." I replied. "Alpha Javier's mother in law."

Symon's jaw clenched but he did not say anything more than that.

We silently made our way through the dark cave. I would kick Vermin in the ass whenever his speed would decrease. We could not afford to be late. Symon was leading us, Vermin and I after him, then Nat, then Mary and Max was at the rear. The cave was narrow enough that we had to walk in a single line. The cave had many twist and turns and many more crossways leading to goddess knows where.

In a total of twenty minutes, we made it to the other side of the tunnel. Symon pulled a rock on one side and the wall in front of us shifted, revealing a beautiful set of mountain ranges. There were three colours that dominated the view. Green, brown and white. None of the human bullshit. But since it was winter, most of it was covered with snow. And I knew that during the summer, a lot of snow would melt, a few rivers would for?? I saw a few that frozen and covered with snow. And I'm sure there was plenty of food?? elks, yak, deer, and of course, along with snow leopards and mountain lions. The rivers would have a lot of fish because the water was pure so there would be lots of bears too.

I had to admit, that despite the ugliness Ava had to face here, Montana was a beautiful pack. I liked the land. I liked the mountains. I liked the pollution free air. I liked the human- free vibe.

"We can travel in fur for the rest of the way." Symon told us.

"You try to escape and I will make you even more miserable than you are, Vermin." I loosened his collar so it would stay on even when he would shift into his wolf and then handed the leash to Max.

"Shift." I ordered and in an instant, Vermin shifted into his dirty blond wolf. His wolf was missing hair from the entirety of its back, showing pink skin and the fur on too of his head was missing too, but it showed ugly mangled skin, a lot like he now had when he was in human skin.

"Nice work." Symon commented kicking him in the ribs, making Vermin whimper and then shifted into his light brown wolf.

"Thanks." I smirked before I shifted into my mid- night blue wolf. Natalia shifted too and Mary climbed on her back.

Symon took the lead and we followed after him, running through the slippery trails of the mountains without being caught. We were moving right under the noses of the parole without even anyone knowing. What a stupid ass pack. It was working out well for me though.

The mountain we had to cross was too dangerous to cross during this time of the year because of the extra slippery trails and the fear of landslides so we were going to go around it, which would add more time. Also, since we weren't used to running in the snow, it slowed us quite a bit.

But without a single complaint, we continued making our way through the pack, the only sounds we heard were our pants, heartbeats and the occasional sound of the leather meeting skin?? which was Max smacking Vermin with the leash whenever he would slow down.

We slowed down when we reached a river. We all paused to drink some water. I don't think I have ever drank better tasting or fresher water than this. After the short break, we entered the cold river and swam our way to the opposite side. Nat with more difficultly because she had Mary on her back, but the strong wolf that she was, she did it without complaint and as quickly as she could.

We shook the cold ass water off our fur before continuing on our way. We took a turn around the mountain range and then Symon slowed down before coming to a stop.

I looked at the sight in front of me.

We were surrounded on all four sides by mountains. The mountains created a valley in the middle where the pack was situated. There was a lake in the middle, probably where the water from the Lycan river was collected before it went down the mountain again.

The pack was situated around the lake and along the foothills of the mountains as well. It sun was about to set and the yellow lights were turned on in every cottage, making the whole town look beautiful.

It was foggy at the peak of mountain but I could clearly see the Soare-Luna mountain?? which was the tallest mountain on Jivan. Soare-Luna meant Sun-Moon mountains because it was said to be the land of both Sun worshippers that is vampires and Moon worshippers, that is werewolves. It is said to be the home of God Sol and Goddess Luna. And the Lycan river originates at the top of the mountain. But for some reason, no one has ever reached the top. I imagined that it must be beautiful at the top too, one would be able to see the entire mountain.

I had always imagined Montana to be dark and gloomy and dirty. But my opinion was biased because I frankly hated this pack.

And it's not that this even this beauty will be able to change my views about the people here. I still hate the pack just as much.

I'm going to burn this place to the ground. And all the people who contributed to Ava's torture with it.

Consequences be damned.

We climbed down the mountain in thirty minutes and it took another ten minutes for us to make it to the pack.

Most of the town was empty and I suspected that it was because the wolves were at the pack house to see the fight. Symon stopped in front of a cottage and shifted to his skin.

"We need to go there in skin. Seeing rogues in wolf form will make it seem that you are here to attack us. If you are in human form, you can convince them that you are just here to talk." He said. All of us shifted to our skin and entered the cottage.
