Author's note: Still thiking about rather or not i should make a sequel about the son
I grabbed my son, Kaiden in my arms and laid him in his bed. I kissed his forehead. “Mommy? He asked. I looked down at him and brushed his hair out of his eyes. “Yeah?” I asked. He looked me in my eyes. “What happened to me today?” He asked.
I sat down on the bed beside him and brushed his hair back. “You shifted for the first time, baby.” I said. His eyes grew wide. “I did?” He asked. I nodded.
“Sometimes when wolves reach a certain age, they shift. It can happen at anytime.”
“Even…..school?” He asked. I nodded.
“That’s why your grandma homeschools you, Kaiden. Sometimes you won’t be able to control your anger and we can’t have humans knowing about our existence or about the existence of vampires. Okay? Can you keep it a secret?” I asked and brought my index finger to my lips. He did the same.
I smiled and kissed his forehead.
“Can I go out and run with you and daddy in the morning?” He asked. I smiled and nodded. “Of course, baby. Sweet dreams.” I whispered.
“Love you mommy.”
“Love you more.” I whispered before kissing him again. I got up and closed the door as I walked out.
Eric was standing in the doorway smirking at me. “Hey.” He said. I smiled as he pulled me over to him and kissed me deeply. I curved my fingers into his soft brown hair.
“You’re so sexy.” He whispered against my lips. I giggled and smiled. “Not soon. I’m going to be fat in a couple of weeks.” I said. His hand rubbed my stomach. “So? You’re still sexy.” He kissed me again and again.
“Hey, before this goes deeper, you should go check on Lucas. He’s on the roof alone.” He said. I sighed. Lucas was ten. And he was a good boy but he also had a bad case of anger. Worse than any of us. And it honestly scared me sometimes.
“Okay, wait for me in the bedroom.” I said. He smiled and nipped at my ear before disappearing at the other end of the hallway. I walked outside into the night air. Aeryn was walking around hand in hand with a woman named Angel. She was pretty. Even for a human.
“Out a little late don’t you think?” Aeryn joked. I rolled my eyes. “Your brother is on the roof. Got to go get him.” I said. Aeryn nodded once.
“Hi, Angel.” I said. Angel smiled. “Hey, Adrianne. Having the baby soon?” She asked. I shrugged. “Not even fat yet.” I said and she giggled lightly.
I walked to the back of the house and climbed the tree. This little boy is making me climb a tree while I’m pregnant. I’m gonna kill him. But I did make it to the roof.
Lucas’s legs were hanging off the roof as he sat looking down at the ground. “Hey, you okay?” I asked. He turned and his eyes glowed bright white and then went back to green. “I’m fine.”
I shook my head and sat beside him. “No, you’re not. You always come up here.” I said.
“I come up here when I think I’m gonna get mad. I just want to be alone.”
“Don’t shut me out.” I said. He looked at me and his eyes glowed white again.
“I’m not trying to, mom.”
“Why can’t I read your thoughts? Why are you blocking them from me?” I asked. Lucas’s eyes went back to dark green.
“I don’t know.” He answered. I bit my lip.
“You honestly scare me sometimes, Lucas.”
“I don’t mean to. I’m just…….with knowing everything my dad has done.” He closed his eyes and shook his head. He was ten but had the mind of a twenty year old.
“Your dad was…..”
“An asshole? I heard you and Eric talking..”
“Don’t ever say that word.” I said. Lucas stared at me. I tried to calm myself down. “Your dad did some bad things. But….he loved you. He would have worshipped you, Lucas. Just like I do.”
Lucas licked his lips and stared down below us. “I heard about some of the stuff he’s done and I’m glad he’s dead.”
“Lucas! Your dad……he loved you.” I said. He shook his head. “No. No he didn’t. He couldn’t have if he hurt you and the rest of my family.” He said. His eyes glowed back to white. “I’m going to go hunt for a little.” He said. His fangs protracted out of his gums and he dropped off of the roof and his feet made a soft thud as he landed down on the ground. He quickly disappeared through the woods.
Lucas was just like a grown man. But he was ten year old. A ten year old grown man who is a werewolf, vampire hybrid and also carry the Carter bloodline which is the strongest bloodline there is. In the Carter bloodline, the blood is like magic. You have strong odd powers that comes in handy often.
Lucas was stronger than all of the wolf pack and he worried me sometimes because I never knew what he would do. He gets angry so easily.
I climbed the tree and got back down to the ground and went into the house. I turned off all the lights and went into my bedroom where Eric was waiting. He smiled at me. “Hey.”
I closed the door behind me. “He knows that Todd was a bad guy.” I said. Eric’s eyes pulled together.
“I thought we agreed we wouldn’t ever bring up that name again.”
“I know but….he knows his dad is bad. What if he falls into his footsteps?” I said sitting on the bed. Eric shook his head.
“The kid scares the shit out of me but he’s a good kid. He loves us all. We don’t need to worry about him.”
“But I do. He’s a hybrid. The only one left with the Carter bloodline.”
“I know. I know. Come here.” He pulled me into his arms and kissed my finger that held a wedding ring. “He’s our son. We will love him no matter what he is.” Eric whispered in my hair. I nodded and kissed him.
“I love you.” I whispered.
“I love you too.” He whispered back and held me tighter. He laid back so that I was now laying on top of his chest. He twirled a piece of my hair around with his finger. My vision became blurry as I soon drifted to sleep.
