Daniel’s POV: “Dad and Mom, I have some good news to tell you.I’m planning to come home and introduce you to my mate ahead of time.I hope that you both like her and are ready to welcome her.”
Early in the morning, the moment I got up, I texted my parents to tell them that I was bringing Helen home in advance.
A while later, when Helen came over to see me, I was making a schedule for the trip back home.
“Honey, what are you doing?”
Helen asked as she walked towards me.
After greeting me with a kiss, she sat down next to me and nestled in my arms.
“You’re booking air tickets now? Are we going to your hometown ahead of schedule?”
“Yes.We have to look for Skylar.Otherwise, Jerome will go crazy.”
I pulled Helen closer and let her sit on my lap.
“I think that the earlier we go back, the better.How about tomorrow? What do you think, Helen?”
“Anything is okay for me.It’s up to you.”
Helen rubbed her cheek against mine and blinked at me happily.
“To be honest, I’m really looking forward to going there.I want to see the place where you grew up.”
“After we find Skylar, I’ll give you a proper tour,” I replied.
Helen nodded, and her eyes lit up in anticipation.
Deep down, I was feeling a little nervous.
After all, this was the first time that I was going to bring a girl home to meet my parents.
The next morning, Helen and I bid goodbye to everyone.
Jennifer and Anthony came with us to the airport to see us off.
After spending so much time with them, I was a little reluctant to leave them.
“Daniel, Helen, I wish you both happiness,”
Jennifer said to us with a smile.
The days she and I had spent together on Marge Island suddenly flashed through my mind.
How time flew! We both had met our mates.
“Thank you, Jennifer.I wish you and Mr.Jones a happy life together too,” I told her sincerely.
Jennifer’s lips curved up into a gentle smile as she waved goodbye to me.
After saying our goodbyes, Helen and I walked into the airport and boarded our plane.
When we landed, we walked out of the terminal and saw my parents, who were waiting for us at the airport.
“This must be my future daughter-in-law, right?”
Betty, my mother, cooed as soon as she saw Helen.
The cheerful smile on her face reached all the way to her eyes, which were narrowed into two crescent moons.
“Dad, Mom, this is Helen, my mate,” I said before turning to Helen.
“Honey, this is my father, Marlon, and my mother, Betty.”
“Hello.Nice to meet you,”
Helen greeted my parents warmly.
“What a polite Visit to read the newest content, everyone! came over and helped us carry our luggage.
When we got home by car, I found that Black Stone House was bustling with Visit to read the newest content, everyone! entrance.
“We’re throwing a party today to welcome Helen,” Betty explained.
“Honey, I didn’t expect your parents to be so enthusiastic,” Helen whispered in my ear.
The truth was, I hadn’t expected that my parents would specially throw a party for us, either.
It seemed that most of the werewolves in the Black Stone Pack were in attendance.
Helen was pleased by this welcome and got along well with my parents, which made me feel content.
“I think you two should get married as soon as possible.Helen is Visit to read the newest content, everyone! date sometime before Christmas?”
Not long after, my parents even proposed to hold a wedding for us.
Before I could say anything, they pulled Helen aside to discuss the wedding date with her.
While listening to them, Helen threw me a blank look, which I responded to with a helpless smile and a shrug.
I was excited to get married to her too, so it was a good thing that my parents were taking the initiative to hold a wedding for us.
As I was thinking about Visit to read the newest content, everyone! walking towards us.
My brother, Devin, was two years older than me, and he was already married.
My sister-in-law’s name was Grace.
Everyone in the pack knew that she was a gentle and generous she-wolf, and blessed her and my brother as a couple.
Unfortunately, the two of them still hadn’t given birth to a child.
As time passed, my brother had gradually grown hostile towards me.
I didn’t know why our relationship had started to sour.
It was because I couldn’t stand living in such a depressing atmosphere Visit to read the newest content, everyone! Island for training.
Now that I was back home after being away for a long time, I was hoping that my relationship with my brother would improve.
I thought it was a good sign that he was approaching me before I could even take the initiative.
“Devin, Grace, long time no see!”
I stood up and greeted them.
“Daniel, you’re finally back home.Is that your mate? Why don’t you introduce her to us?” Devin asked.
“Of course.” I called Helen, who was chatting happily with my parents.
Helen excused herself and soon walked over to me.
“Helen, this is my brother, Devin.And this is his wife, Grace.”
“Hello, I’m Helen!”
Helen smiled and waved at both of them in greeting.
“Helen, Mom and Dad seem to like you very much.You’re so lucky, unlike me.I’m still not able to get in their good books,”
Grace said with a smile that had a tinge of bitterness in it.
“Mom and Dad like everyone,” I replied, holding Helen’s hand.
The smile on Grace’s face froze, and the light in her eyes dimmed, as if she was upset.
“Well, we won’t disturb you two.Have a good time.”
Devin cleared his throat and broke the ice.
“All right.Take care, you two.” I nodded at them.
It was not until they were out of earshot that Helen leaned in with a curious expression.
“Daniel, why do I feel that the two of them don’t like you?” she asked.
“I’ll tell you about it later.”
“Okay.” Helen nodded.
Daniel’s parents were so enthusiastic and kind to me.
They seemed to be very satisfied with Daniel’s choice in a daughter-in-law.
The more I talked to them, the more obvious it was to me that Daniel had grown up in a happy family.
There was only one thing that I didn’t understand.
I kept feeling that Daniel’s brother and his sister-in- law didn’t like us for some reason.
They didn’t seem to be easy to get along with.
But I had just met them, so I didn’t know if I was imagining things.
After the welcome party, Betty pulled me aside mysteriously.
“Helen, you have to have a child with Daniel as soon as possible.Daniel’s father and I have decided that the position of the Alpha will be passed onto the son who has a child first.But as you know, Devin and Grace still don’t have children, so we can only depend on you and Daniel now,”
Betty said earnestly.
It was clear from her tone that she preferred Daniel to Devin.No wonder Devin and his wife had been unfriendly towards us.
“Okay, I will try my best,” I replied to Betty.
“Good girl.Have a good rest tonight.”
She said goodbye to me with a smile.
As I walked back to the bedroom I was sharing with Daniel, I realized that his family was more complicated than it seemed.
Fortunately, his parents treated us very well.
When I walked into the room, I found Daniel making the bed.
I told him what his mother had said to me just now.
“I knew Mom would talk to you about this,” Daniel said with a sigh.
“Don’t feel pressured by her.Children are predestined.We can talk about having children after we get married.But I have to tell you something about my brother.It wasn’t convenient for me to explain the whole thing to you at the party just now.I’m sure you’ve already sensed that my brother and his wife don’t like me.And I can’t blame them.My parents do favor me more these days.I guess my brother feels like he’ll lose our parents to me, which is why he’s so hostile.The two of us don’t get along well with each other.Remember, be careful of him and his wife.”
“Okay, I’ll be careful. What about Skylar? Where should we start looking for her?”
When I thought of Skylar, I felt worried.
“I’ve already sent my men to search for her.As long as she’s inside the territory of the Black Stone Pack, we’ll find her soon.”
I gave Daniel a peck on the head before throwing my arms around him, wanting him to coax me to sleep.
Before coming to the Black Stone House, I had been nervous and worried all the time.
Now, I felt like a weight had been lifted off of me.
I got to know Daniel’s family better.
Even though his brother and sister-in-law didn’t seem to like me, at least his parents did.
That was enough.
I couldn’t help but daydream about my wedding with Daniel.
I was so excited.
With his arms wrapped around me, Daniel and I fell into a sweet slumber.
