Chapter 76 Alone
- I was speechless as I watched him walk away from me. I felt as if I had been rejected. I knew that’s not what happened but it still hurt. I really thought he would have taken me with him. I had been right to be scared that he would say no. I couldn’t comprehend what would make him do this. I didn’t need anything but him. I didn’t need anyone but him. The door closed behind him and I was left behind in this room. I wanted to run after him but I knew it was pointless. I couldn’t bring myself to move, so I just stayed where I stood. My mind struggled to understand why he would leave me here.
- He was leaving my father’s lands, he was leaving me behind, he was giving me to Ethan. Was there any excuse he could give me that would make this okay? Even though my time had run out, even as the wolves stalked me, even as the wolves descended I could only think of him. How could I not think about him when he was injured and going out there?
