Chapter 139 Rules
- No one moved, no one so much as flinched. It was as if someone dropping dead was nothing out of the ordinary I looked around the room, with a false sense of hope, praying that one of these men were normal. They were so used to bloodshed that when death stopped by during a meeting that was meant to be peaceful, not one of the men batted an eye. The women by their sides weren’t as unaffected, but remained quiet. Some stared at the table and others refused to look down at the man bleeding out on the ground. My attention was dragged back to Alpha.
- It was when he felt my eyes on him, that he moved, he reached down and pulled the dagger from the Beta’s head. I shuttered at the sound it made and my mate across the table noticed. I wanted to tell Alpha that what he’d done was unnecessary. I wanted to tell him he couldn’t just kill people. This man was my father’s Beta, he had stepped in for him, and he hadn’t thought twice about killing him. He hadn’t killed an alpha, but had killed a representative who stood in an alpha’s place. Despite wanting to say these things, I said none of them. I remained still, I remained silent.
