Chapter 55 Birthright
- “Take her upstairs,” Ava demanded. “She has a habit of slipping out, so guard her door. Don’t let her leave.”
- The two warriors nodded at Ava and turned to me. Before they could grab me I turned from them and headed out. Had I been born a man I would have been their leader, my father’s heir. The throne he sits on would have been mine. I would have been the next Alpha and been the one to govern over this pack but because I was a woman, I was nothing but a pawn, a chess piece. One to be sold off at the highest price. My only use was how my father wanted to move me across the board.
- The unfairness of it all was enough to cause my eyes to prick with tears. It wouldn’t matter who Ava was or if she was the favorite child. I had been born first, I should have had more say. I was the one who should have had the power. I held my head high as I led the way out. A few men ran in front of me and I was forced to follow them out. As much as I wanted to, I didn’t look at Gabriel as I walked out the double doors. I didn’t say another word to Ava and she didn’t either. I could hear her talk to Gabriel about her dresses as the doors closed behind me.
