“Kaitlyn what are you doing here?” Orrick smiled walking into the lounge where she sat, along with Ailana.
“I’m sorry for intruding” she replied embracing him warmly, while she let her nerves and worry momentarily subside. She’d sent Duncan back to the cabin with the horse to tell the garou that Lar’s was missing while she had headed to Orrick’s to sort out Ailana’s future. Continue reading
Duncan twisted trying to get free but the two large men held him solidly in iron strong grips that showed no signs of release. “Open the door!” he demanded, glowering venomously towards his uncle “I want to see her” He didn’t know why she was locked in, he didn’t know why his uncle had lied the only thing he knew for certain was that his sister needed him.
It was an odd thing to had a twin, they had scarcely grown up together at all but right now at this time of crisis he couldn’t have felt closer to her. Continue reading
“Lad where you going?” Lars called as Duncan lumbered down the stairs the next morning. He had spent all evening tossing and turning trying to work out what if anything to say to Alice. Tristen was a scoundrel he decided, however he had also realised that made him one too. For the first time he realised how he had behaved towards Alice was truly wrong, no wonder she was upset.

Alice sat it stunned silence, her father leaning against the wall opposite while Kaitlyn clung onto her hand like her life had depended on it.
Her relationship with Kaitlyn had changed over the past few weeks the older woman suddenly taking on a more motherly role. It seemed once she’d realised her own son had not been involved in the predicament that Alice now found herself in, she’d been able to relax and provide her with a shoulder to cry and a listening ear.
The two teenagers sat head down looking guilty at the table where Lar’s had called them. It had just been all Lar’s could do all day to keep his wife calm and Kaitlyn paced angrily next to him.
“We’ll what have yer got ter say fer yerselves?” Lars asked.
