I politely nod at everyone as I sit down at the table for supper beside Zack. The dining hall is full of people and chatter while the delicious smell of food drifts out of the kitchen.
Zack quickly nods and looks away. He has been like this all day. Did I do something to irritate him? My wolf whimpers while I rake my brain, trying to find the one thing that I did to upset him. Unfortunately, I can’t find anything.
My eyebrows furrow together as I stare at the side of his face.
My thoughts are interrupted as Lindsey leans forward and looks around her brothers at me. “Hey, Alpha Brayden, we are going to have a small party tonight to welcome you back and to thank you for what you did with the rogues. Can you come? It won’t be right to have a party without the guest of honor.”
I shake my head. “I don’t know. There is a lot of work for me to do, especially since I’ve been gone for a few days recovering.”
