The Lycan King

Chapter 87. Revolution


"Rise." He commanded and everyone stood up at once.

The fire had died out the second I had stepped out of it. I had a hitch that the spell included something that it will only die out once the people inside it do too. I wish?we?could have killed Mary and we would do it right this time around.

"The series of unfortunate events that have been happening since last night have happened because of one spiteful person who hates vampires??Mary. She was the one who lit the Pack house on fire and she was the one who lit this cottage on fire too."

There were murmurs of disbelief in the crowd.

That's when Papa walked up to us and stood besides me.

"Alpha Javier."

"It's him."

"He's back from the dead!"

"He's alive!"

Different murmurs rose in the crowd. But one thing remained common, the tears in the eyes of people and the mirth to have him back.

Papa raised his hand and the crowd silenced.

"Mary was the one who planned the attack because she hated the fact that I, a vampire was leading it." Papa started and shouts of rage broke into the crowd.

"Emmanuel locked me up in the dungeon for a decade and him along with his son Emilio, kept my daughter in captivity." Papa put his arm around me, hugging me to his side.

"But this fine young man here??Alpha Nikolai Volkov, rescued Ava and then rescued all of us from the tyranny of the Gonzalez'. I believe Alpha Nikolai will set the Montana Pack back on track and not only restore it to it's former glory, but make it better and greater than it has ever been." He finished.

"He is a rogue, Alph-Javier." A woman said, dread evident in her voice. "How do we trust them?"

"He walks in fire." Another man said. "What if a demon resides in him? What if??"

"Or maybe, God Sol resides in him." A woman stepped forward as she looked at Nik with devotion. I recognised her as one of the females we had helped escape the prison. "He helped us! He can't be bad!"

"Those are just assumptions! We can't trust theories! How do we trust them? How do we truly know he isn't worse than Emilio?" Every member of the pack grew more confused and fearful by the second.

"I know no demon or god. They walked in fire." A woman spoke up, her voice filled with fear. "That is just not natural. Not for a werewolf! We do not have affinity with natural elements like vampires."

My mind raced as I thought about ways to help pacify everyone and assure them that we are good people.

"Alpha Nikolai is a good man, Mama." I heard a boy say.

He dashed out of crowd and stood before Nikolai. He didn't look older than Adrian. "He helped me save Viktoria and the others from the dungeon. He also kept his promise of getting us all out of the burning prison." Then he turned towards the crowd. "Anyone who tries to hurt him will have to go through me!" He placed his little fists on his waist.

Two girls and two boys ran out and joined the little guy. "Us too!"
