The Lycan King

Chapter 85. Fire and Power


I picked up the key ring from besides his cell and held it out for the little man.

"Lucas, I want you to unlock the door, I will drop them out and be right back." I handed him the key before I dashed out of the dungeon and place the boys on the floor. The guard two was sitting on the floor with the girls on his lap and he was talking to them, trying to make them smile.

He seems like a good man.

"Bring a couple of slaves in. Preferably those whose owners don't mind them dying. I want them here right now." I ordered before I ran inside.

Lucas had opened the door but he was standing outside, looking a bit scared to go inside.

I patted him on the shoulder, silently saying that he did a good job and walked inside the cell. I knew he was Ava's father. But I needed to conform it. How is he alive? Ava said he died. Mary said he died. All the pack members believed he was dead too. They must have felt his link break. Or maybe they stripped way his title somehow. I don't know how someone can do it to their superior but maybe a witch can do it.

"What's your full name?" I knew the answer before he opened his mouth. He was pale but his skin was naturally tanned??the Hispanic kind.?Ava must have gotten her pale skin tone from her mother.?And I recognised his features, I had seen him when I was a kid and still in Mystic Lupus. But right now, he looked...decayed. His skin was pale, almost greyish green. The skin around his eyes had sunken along with his cheeks, making his eyeballs pop out. His back was hunched and his t-shirt hung over him like it was hanging on a hanger. I'm sure he once filled it out perfectly. But right now, he looked nothing like the man I had met when I was a kid.

His lips parted but no voice came out. His hand trembled but he was unable to lift it.

"Alvarez?" My voice was rough as I spoke. This is fucked up. Avalyn will loose her shit if she sees her father like this.

The dim light in his eyes changed, displaying life. And then, with much difficulty, he nodded.


"Let's get out of here, old man." I murmured and then put his frail body over my shoulder before I walked out.

Lucas walked on my other side and grabbed my hand as we walked towards the exit.

I frowned when I saw that the door was closed. I tried to push it open but it was... locked?

I growled. "Open the door or else I will kill you."

"I don't know what happened, Alpha." Came the guard's panicked voice. "Suddenly the door slammed shut and it isn't opening. I've been trying to open it since you went in." It was the truth.?

"Fire!" I heard a scream.

My eyes widened and I looked down at Lucas. He looked at me with terror filled eyes.

I bent down to his level. "I promise I will get you out of here alive, Lucas. But for that I need you to not cry and do exactly as I tell you, alright?"

He nodded and wiped his eyes. "What do you need me to do?"?

I placed Javier down and sat him up against the door. "Stay here and protect him, okay? And let me know if you hear any news from outside."

He nodded and I ran inside the dungeon.

And true to the scream, one end of the dungeon was on fire.

'Ava, I'm locked inside the prison and there is a fire burning here. I need your help to get out. There are a lot of people here that need to get out too.'?I mind- linked her.

'I'm on my way.' Came her immediate response. I decided upon not telling her about Javier until she actually sees him.

I'm pretty sure that most of the people here have not committed any true crime and I need to save everyone.

I first unlocked the cell closest to the fire. "The door is shut, it's not opening. Everyone will stand near the door." It was furthest away from the fire. "Give wide girth to the boy and the vampire or we will have a problem." I growl and opened the door. "Help the people in your cell to escape." I said when I saw the people in the end unable to get up.

A couple of people of people began helping them and started walking out. I decided that if I open all the cells right now, it will be chaos and I won't be able to concentrate in finding a way out. But then these wails and pleas were getting louder by the second.

I growled loudly. "Shut up."

The dungeon quietened down. "I promise to save all of you but if I open the cells right now, all of you will only come in my way."
