Outcast: The Alpha Kings Beloved Chapter 103

Chapter 103: Meeting Again

Jennifer’s POV:

It was another sleepless night for me.

The thought of attending the banquet tomorrow gave me mixed feelings.

On the one hand, I was really looking forward to seeing Anthony again.

On the other hand, knowing that this banquet was the anniversary celebration of Arthur’s succession to the position of Alpha made me uncomfortable.

It was like a celebration of my father’s death.

Arthur had only risen to his current position after killing my father and destroying our family.

He was the person I hated most in the world, but I had to swallow my hatred and disgust while watching him swagger around like a winner.

I really didn’t know how I was going to face him and Ella tomorrow.

Their invitation to me was obviously not as innocent or generous as it seemed.

They just wanted to take this opportunity to rub it in my face and maybe set a trap for me.

At this crucial time, my brother and Skylar were not here, so I had to be even more cautious.

However, I felt that as long as I could see Anthony again, it was all worth it.

I missed him terribly.

The truth was, we hadn’t been apart for a long time, but it felt like an eternity.

Maybe my anxiety would be gone once I saw Anthony with my own eyes tomorrow.

Just then, my phone vibrated on the bedside table.

When I picked it up, I saw that I was getting a call from Skylar.

“Hello, Skylar.”

Holding the phone to my ear, I walked to the window and looked outside.

“Jennifer, Dylan and I have arrived at the royal palace of Osman Kingdom.We inquired about Mr.Jones as soon as we got here.We heard that he’s going to attend the celebration banquet in the Rainbow Pack tomorrow.”

“How is he now?”I asked.

“Don’t worry.He is safe.Nothing happened to him.But we didn’t get to see him yet.As soon as we arrived at his residence, we were stopped by some attendants arranged by Caroline.Dylan and I are waiting for the right chance to go there again.”

Only after hearing that could I breathe a sigh of relief.

“I’m glad he’s fine.As long as he’s not in danger, I can relax.Thank you, Skylar, and please convey my thanks to Dylan.”

“You don’t have to thank us.And Jennifer, please be careful over there.”

“I will.You too.”

“Dylan and I will come back to be with you as soon as possible.I didn’t expect that we wouldn’t get to meet Mr.Jones this time.It’s so annoying.But luckily, you are going to meet each other soon.Otherwise, you would miss him too much,”Skylar teased.

“Yes, thank you for reuniting us, kind and beautiful Skylar.”

Skylar burst into laughter on the other end of the line.

After exchanging a few more jokes, I hung up the phone with a bitter smile.

Now that I knew for certain that Anthony would be attending the banquet tomorrow, I had to go as well.

I didn’t care whether it was a trap or not.

As long as I could see him again, I was not afraid of anything.

The next morning, I carefully got dressed.

Since it had been a long time since Anthony had seen me, I wanted to impress him at first sight.

Daniel had to wait for me for a long time.

Knowing that I was still getting ready, he didn’t urge me, but just waited downstairs patiently.

When I finally walked down, he stood up and said, “I’ll accompany you to the banquet.Helen and Simon will be there too.Of course, we have to pretend like we don’t know them.Otherwise, they’ll be in trouble.”

I nodded.

“You’re right.Let’s be careful.It’s obvious that this banquet is a trap for us.”

Daniel and I had already discussed the matter and decided that we had to be on alert all the time to guard ourselves against any problems.

When we arrived at the venue, the banquet had just started, and the place was bustling with activity.

Well-dressed guests were flooding into the venue.

But when I walked into the banquet hall, all eyes turned to me.

“Who is she?”

“She looks a lot like the daughter of our previous Alpha.”

“I heard that that girl was a jinx.Anyone who got close to her would meet a bad fate.”

I was used to people gossiping about me like this so I didn’t pay them any attention, but Daniel clenched his fists in anger and tried to go up to them to put them in their place.

I grabbed his wrist and shook my head at him.

“Forget it.Let their words go through one ear and out the other.Sooner or later, the truth will come to light.”

Daniel reluctantly nodded and stepped aside.

At this time, Arthur and Ella made their grand entrance.

The noise in the banquet hall immediately died down, as if a blanket had been thrown over the whole place.

It seemed that Arthur had a certain hold over the werewolves in the Rainbow Pack, but it was probably less out of respect and more out of fear.

“Let’s welcome Jennifer Smith, the daughter of the late Alpha Lewis.Her presence here is a great honor to the Rainbow Pack.”

Of all the things I had been prepared for before coming to the banquet, Arthur announcing my identity so blatantly in front of everyone was not one of them.

There were audible gasps of shock from the guests.

One of them asked curiously, “Didn’t Lewis Smith’s daughter die a long time ago? How could she be here?”

Several elders spoke up at this time to welcome me.

“It’s a good thing that Jennifer is still alive.In her veins runs the blood of our late Alpha Lewis.It’s good news, worthy of celebration.”

Now that things had taken such a turn, I thought that it would be odd for me not to speak up.

So I opened my mouth and spoke in a tone that was graceful, but loud enough for everyone present to hear.

“Back then, I was stranded in another pack.But I’m glad that I have the chance to be back here.Thank you all for remembering my existence.I hope that the Rainbow Pack can soar to greater heights, so that my father’s last wish will be fulfilled.”

As soon as I said that, some of the older guests began to remark on how good of an Alpha my father had been, and how he had worked hard for our park.

It filled my heart with joy to hear that they remembered my father with such fondness.

Of course, the Rainbow Pack was not what it once used to be.

With a slight cough from Arthur, everyone stopped talking at once.

Arthur plastered a smile on his face and said, “No matter what Jennifer’s fate is, she is always welcome in the Rainbow Pack.I will take good care of her to console Alpha Lewis in heaven.Please take a seat of honor, Jennifer.”

What a hypocrite! It was a pity that I wasn’t able to contend with him yet.

I nodded with a smile, maintaining a polite facade while secretly observing the werewolves at the ceremony.

I saw some elders that I remembered seeing when I was a child, other elders who I wasn’t familiar with, and the representatives of other packs.

I was surprised that Arthur had invited so many werewolves to attend this anniversary celebration.

But where was Anthony? Fortunately, no sooner had I wondered about his whereabouts than a werewolf announced that Anthony and Caroline had arrived.

Everyone stood up to greet them, and the gun salutes rang out.

Knowing that I was finally about to see Anthony again, I could barely contain my excitement.

A group of people entered the banquet hall, but the first person my eyes fell on was Anthony.

I could see that he had become haggard and thinner in these past few days, but it didn’t hinder him from being the focus of the crowd.

He was still as attractive as ever.

‘’We finally meet again, my dear Anthony.’’
