~Lucie’s POV~
Within a blink of an eye Casey appeared. He was sprawled on the ground with his body a tangled mess of arms and legs. I felt my heart race at the sight of him. I tried rushing forward to him but my legs seemed to be locked in place.
“Casey!” His head snapped up and he bounced up, running over to me with blinding speed. He engulfed me in his arms burying his head into the crook of my neck. I did the same and breathed in his heavenly scent, a mixture of dark chocolate, pine cones, and a scent that only belonged to him. He froze seconds later, probably due to the fact that my arms still hung limply at my sides. There was something holding me in place, some kind of unseen force. ...view middle of the document...

Patience my child,”
“I am not your child,” I watched as Casey transformed in front of me. Gone was his reserved authoritativeness, leaving only an all-consuming rage in its wake. I reached a tentative hand out to him, hoping that my touch would sooth him. He shoved my hand off of him, his body nearly shaking now.
“Let us go Lupe,” I could barely hear my own voice it was so quiet. Tears pricked the edges of my eyes and it took nearly all my concentration just to keep them at bay. A sad sigh sounded before the white room around me began to fade around me.
Remember what I said Lucie. Her words did nothing but help reignite the dismay spreading through me. Even after I could once again move my fingers and toes again, I couldn’t shake the feeling. One of the first things that I realized was that I was embraced in someone’s arms. It took me a few more seconds to regain the rest of my senses and when I did I the sound of shuffling of feet and a door slamming had me finally cracking my eyes open. I took in my pack’s startled expressions meeting the still stunned eyes of some of the people I didn’t recognize. Gazing down I saw that Sonny’s arms were wrapped tightly around my body with his head nuzzled snuggly in the crook of my neck, the soft sound of his whimpering still in the air.
“You can’t leave me yet sis,” his words were muffled and I could help but let a small half smile spread show as he gripped me tighter with every word. My fingers grazed his hair and for what seemed like the first time I took in his small frame and his slightly taunt face.
“What happened?” Dom’s voice was firm as he watched me, calculating my every move. His seriousness had me snapping back into reality with an almost dizzying feel.
“How did you guys even know about what happened? Did we fall of the bed or something?” Sonny’s body tensed around me and he took a step back, meeting my eyes.
“You really don’t know do you?”
“Know what?”
“We couldn’t sense you in the pack link Lucie. We couldn’t sense either of you.”
“Couldn’t that mean we were just blocking you guys or something?”
“No… I don’t mean we couldn’t just sense you, I mean we couldn’t sense you at all. It was like you just vanished off the face of the earth.” Dread seemed to fill my veins in a matter of seconds. It was like a switched was turned on in his eyes.
“You know what really happened don’t you? I bet it has something to do with the fact that the Alpha just stormed out of here like someone had set his car on fire. Lucie… what could have happened that would make him leave you like this after he just marked you?”
“I’m pretty sure that we don’t want to know the answer to that Sonny.” The pain that I knew shown in my eyes was reflected in Dominic’s. I nodded at him and he signaled for everyone to leave the room. Once the room was cleared, he paused in the doorway. He fisted one of his hands in his hand and used the other one to run through his light blond hair. I couldn’t help but smile at his awkwardness. A rose...
