We both marched back to the house in silence, Xavier gripping my hand tightly. I glanced up at Xavier, who had a look of annoyance quite clearly splashed across his face. He didn’t even bother to look back down at me. He continued to look in front of him, glaring at the trees and the ground. Feeling guilty, I looked back down towards my feet. After what felt like an eternity, we finally made it to the edge of the lawn. I looked up to see lots of people milling about, chattering in hushed voices, all looking panicked and stricken. They all looked up in disbelief as we stomped silently across the lawn.
“Don’t worry, I’ve found her!” Xavier snarled, tightening his grip, and pulling me towards the house even quicker. “You are all dismissed for the night. Goodnight!”
I peeped over at the faces of the Warriors, who were all stood there, looking at me accusingly. Some seemed slightly annoyed, and a couple shook their heads at me. Gulping nervously, I quickly followed Xavier into the lobby and up the staircase towards some form of privacy.
“Where are we going, and what were all those Warriors doing?” I whispered, dreading his answer.
“To my office. We have things to discuss. And they were all out looking for you!” Xavier replied firmly, without even looking at me.
Xavier’s office door finally approached, and Xavier pushed it open firmly, allowing the door to crash loudly into the wall behind. He let my hand drop to my side as he walked around his desk and sat down moodily behind it. He placed his head in his hands and sighed loudly before slamming his hands down loudly on the wooden desk, making me jump.
“What an earth do you think you were doing!?” Xavier yelled, finally looking at me, his eyes burning with anger, his body quivering with clear rage.
“What do you mean, what was I doing?” I squeaked, suddenly surprised at Xavier’s sudden outburst, but not flinching at his angry appearance.
He didn’t scare me!
“You were outside after hours in the bloody dark! Have you not learnt anything? Those rules were put in place to protect you!” he roared, standing up, glaring across the desk at me.
“For your information Mister, I was outside trying to reconnect to my wolf, like the Moon Goddess said I should, which clearly worked, seeing as you and your little gang nearly tried killing us both!” I snapped back in an angry defence.
“We weren’t going to kill you! We were only going to surround you and find out who was on our land,” Xavier shouted angrily. “We didn’t have a bloody clue who you were. You could have been some random wolf or some dirty rogue in our packhouse grounds, for all we knew!” he continued, accusingly.
“Oh, come on, like you couldn’t smell who I was! Every wolf has a scent. You would have known that I was your Mate!” I scoffed, folding my arms across my chest, and trying not to laugh sarcastically. “You were trying to humiliate me!”
