Chapter 54 Soulmates: Leo POV
- I rocked Cy as he slowly fell back to sleep. It was about 5 AM and he’d woken up screaming. He didn’t really remember what he was dreaming about, which meant this was more of a night terror than an actual nightmare. It’d still taken a while to calm him down a bit before I was able to start coaxing him back to sleep. As I did so, I questioned whether I should have stopped him from reading those reports yesterday. Did that trigger this? Could I have prevented it if I stopped him? I buried my face in his hair as his body relaxed against mine with soft, rhythmic breaths. I sighed quietly. If anything, I was more worried about the interview he was going to have with the council representative. If this happened from reading some reports, what would happen after he talked about it? About the things he experienced and saw? He would have to be much more in-depth than he was with me. When he spoke with them, it would be similar to a testimony rather than a summary.

I don’t want him to have to keep reliving his past. Keep dredging it up over and over and over again. It’s like he never has a chance to even try to move on. I laid on my back with my baby held against my chest; my arms around him protectively. Why did he have to suffer? Why his pack out of all the packs? His family out of all the families? My mate out of all the mates? It felt so unfair that he would forever be tortured by something so out of his control. He didn’t deserve to have his happiness tainted like this, and I felt so useless about it sometimes. Like now. Was I even helping him with anything at all? Did my presence even help a little? I feel so inadequate…
