Right before I fell asleep, my phone rang.
It was Helen.
She told me that Skylar had left Black Stone Pack.
I sat bolt upright when I heard the news, anxious because now, it would be even more difficult for us to find Skylar.
The world was huge.Where on earth could she have gone?
“I have to tell Jerome,” I said to Anthony urgently.
Jerome was so busy with work lately, trying his best to solve the matters of the pack as soon as possible so that he could search for Skylar himself.
I figured he would move even faster once I told him the news.
“I’ll go with you.”
Anthony also got out of bed.
The two of us hurriedly got dressed and rushed to Jerome’s room.
Nodding slightly to Anthony, I raised my hand and knocked on the door.
Soon after, Jerome opened the door.
There were dark circles around his eyes.
“What’s up?” he asked tiredly.
“Jerome, I’m just here to tell you that Skylar has left the Black Stone Pack.”
All the color drained from Jerome’s already pale face.
“Where could she have gone? Do you think she’s in danger? I can’t wait any longer.I’m going to look for her right now.Jennifer, I don’t have the time to properly hand over the affairs of the pack to you.Please summon the elders and have a meeting tomorrow to explain the situation.”
As he spoke, Jerome had already headed back into his room to pack his things.
“Since you’ve made up your mind, we will support you.Call me if you need anything, okay?” I sighed.
Because time was of the essence, Jerome only took a few attendants with him.
Anthony and I escorted him to the airport.
“I’m going straight to the Black Stone Pack to personally investigate the matter.If Skylar was there, she must’ve left some clues.I’m sure I’ll find something at the airport.Hopefully, she didn’t go far.” Jerome waved at me.
“Thank you, Jennifer.”
“Don’t worry,” I said with a forced smile.
“I’ll do what I can to take care of the pack. Be careful, okay? Call us as soon as you find Skylar.”
“I will,” Jerome agreed.
“If you encounter any difficulties, don’t hesitate to tell me.”
“Okay.” Jerome nodded.
Then, all of a sudden, he threw his arms around me tightly.
“Jennifer, I’m sorry.I’m a bad brother.We were separated when we were children.I’ve never taken care of you properly.And now, I’m asking you to take over the Rainbow Pack for me.”
“So you have to come back soon, or I’ll never forgive you.” I felt a lump in my throat.
Jerome nodded and let go of me.
“All right.Mr.Jones, Jennifer, I’m leaving now.”
He walked towards the plane steadily, glancing back at us from time to time.
When we were sure that Jerome was on board, Anthony and I went back to Rainbow House.
That night, I tossed and turned in bed, and Anthony hugged me from behind.
“Don’t worry.I’ll always be with you.”
He pecked me on the neck.
“Anthony, I don’t know when my brother will come back.Do you think the elders will agree to let me temporarily lead the pack?” I was really worried.
“Of course they will,” Anthony said firmly.
“You’re an excellent girl, Visit to read the newest content, everyone! you? Besides, I will help you.”
“I’m so glad you’re there for me.With you by my side, I almost feel certain I can Visit to read the newest content, everyone! so I won’t be able to accompany you back to the kingdom until my brother comes back.”
I felt terrible.I had been separated from Anthony for so long, and our reunion was no easy feat.I had initially agreed to go back to the Osman Kingdom with him, but now my promise was put on hold.
“It’s okay, Jennifer.Don’t overthink things.We will have ample time together.And we love each other; nothing can separate us.” Anthony kissed me gently on the cheek.
“I want to sleep with Visit to read the newest content, everyone! my arms around Anthony’s neck.
He kissed me on the forehead and slipped his arms around my waist.
His embrace was warm and the air was sweet.
The next day, we prepared for the meeting with the elders.
Jerome was supposed to show up and hand over the affairs of the pack, but with him gone, the purpose of the meeting was for me to convince them to let me manage the pack in his absence.
When I arrived at the hall, the elders were already busy Visit to read the newest content, everyone! main chair.
“Jennifer, that’s the seat for the Alpha of Rainbow Pack.”
When the elders saw me sitting down, they all looked at me in confusion.
Only Simon and Tony were calm.
This was because I had contacted them beforehand, informing them of Jerome’s situation.
They were the most likely to support me among all the elders present, so I had made preparations in advance, hoping they would help me at the meeting.
“There’s something we need to discuss.Jerome left the Rainbow Pack last night.In his absence, I Visit to read the newest content, everyone! with objections.
“Jennifer, are you kidding? The Rainbow Pack has never been managed by a she-wolf.The pack can only be managed by the future Alpha.You can’t do this!”
I understood their sentiments, and I was not angry with them.
But I had to find a way to appease them.
While my brother was away, I couldn’t let the Rainbow Pack go without leadership.
So I glanced at Simon, hinting at him to help me out.
“Who says she isn’t qualified? Jennifer is strong and independent, and she’s the Visit to read the newest content, everyone! isn’t here, it’s only right that she take over the affairs of the pack,” Simon said.
“You don’t know Jennifer well enough.She is as capable as Jerome, if not even more so.I think the Rainbow Pack will flourish under her leadership,” Tony added.
“I heard that it was Jennifer who found Tony and helped him regain his consciousness so that the evil Arthur would be brought to justice.She is indeed very strong-willed.I think she can lead the Rainbow Pack.”
Several other elders spoke on my Visit to read the newest content, everyone! is, she is still a she-wolf.The affairs of our pack have always been handled by the Alpha—who has always been male.We have never had a female Alpha.”
“But Jennifer is not trying to become the Alpha.She’ll only manage the affairs of our pack while Jerome is gone.What’s wrong with that?”
Chaos broke loose as everyone spoke their mind.
Finally, I stood up from my seat and spoke loudly.
“Please listen to me first.”
As soon as I said that, everyone fell silent.
It was so quiet that one could’ve heard a pin drop.
“Jerome has some personal affairs to deal with, which is why he left Rainbow Pack in a hurry last night.I’m sorry that we weren’t able to inform you in advance.In the past, my father worked hard to rule the pack, but his position was usurped by Arthur.In order to prevent the Rainbow Pack from falling into a similar situation, I think the burden of leading the pack should fall on me.I know there has never been a she-wolf who has intervened in the affairs of the pack, but rules are always man- made.As a result, rules can change.My brother is not here.There is no one else except me who can lead the pack.In a time as critical as now, we need to be united and can’t go out of order.Since I have promised my brother to temporarily manage the pack’s affairs, I will try my best to do it.Why don’t you give me a chance? If I can’t live up to the task, then I will be at your disposal,” I said calmly.
The elders who had initially opposed me finally agreed.
“What you said makes sense, Jennifer.I have no objection anymore,” said one of the elders.
“We agree, too.”
The other elders also agreed.I finally breathed a sigh of relief.
“All right.I hope we can cooperate with each other from now on.Let’s manage Rainbow Pack together.”
“We will cooperate with you, Jennifer.”
“Thank you for your trust, elders.”
I sincerely bowed to them.
When the meeting was over, I couldn’t help but feel relieved.
Jennifer went to attend the meeting while I stayed in our room alone.
I suddenly received a message from an attendant I had sent out previously.
As I read his text, my heart beat quickened with excitement.
“Mr.Jones, we have found a wizard named Roy.He was spotted near the Rainbow Pack recently.Maybe you can try to contact him.This is his location.”
Soon after, Jennifer came back.
I told her about the message, which made her jump with joy.
We both hoped that this wizard would help me regain my memories.
Jennifer quickly called Jeff and asked him if he knew a wizard named Roy.
We believed in Jeff’s connections in this field.
As expected, Jeff’s friend happened to know Roy, and even Jeff himself had met Roy many times.
So then we decided to go and meet Roy together.
It was said that Roy was an old and mysterious wizard who lived in a small log cabin in the forest.
Werewolves often tried to convince him to leave the forest, but he was unwilling.
Some even tried to bribe him with money, but he refused.
Jeff continued talking to us about Roy’s story as we waded through the forest in search of his home.
“Roy is there!” Jeff exclaimed all of a sudden.
We followed his sight and saw an old werewolf sitting on a rattan chair, basking in the sun.
“Hello, are you Roy?”
I walked up to him and asked.
He popped open one eye to glance at us before nodding.
“What’s the matter this time, Jeff?” Roy asked.
From his tone of voice, it sounded like he knew Jeff well.
“It’s nice to meet you, Roy.Actually, we could use your help.My mate has lost his memories.Is there anything you can do to help him?”
Jennifer walked over and explained our purpose to the wizard.
“Bring him forward and let me check,” Roy said.
I stepped forward as requested.
Roy took out his scepter and waved it in front of my body.
I noticed him frown for a second, but he quickly became straight-faced afterward.
“Your memories have just been sealed, which can be unsealed by magic,” Roy announced calmly.
“Roy, can you do it? He’s a friend of mine, and Jennifer here is his mate.They love each other very much, but he can’t remember how he met her.We all hope that he can regain his memories,” Jeff said.
“Fine.I’ll help you, for Jeff’s sake.Come in with me.”
Roy was pointing at me.
I glanced at Jennifer to reassure her that I was going to be okay, then followed him into his house.
Inside, I saw bottles upon bottles of various shapes, sizes, and colors.
Maybe they were magic potions.
I followed Roy’s instructions and lay down on a lounge chair.
“Close your eyes and relax.”
As Roy’s hand moved over my head, I felt a warm stream of air moving around my head as though a wind was billowing about me.
All of a sudden, some fragments of old memories started flashing in my mind.
I could see myself visiting some packs to select outstanding werewolves to train.
That was when I met Jennifer.
The first time I ever laid eyes on her, I felt oddly drawn towards her.
I had never seen such a girl.
She was gentle and beautiful yet unyielding.
I knew right then and there that she was my mate.
I paid much attention to her during the training and even conducted solo sessions with her.
We had gone through so much together.
I normally found girls troublesome and annoying, but Jennifer was different.
I fell head over heels in love with her.
It was fate.
‘‘Jennifer, I remember it all now.I remember every sweet moment between us.I will never forget you ever again.I will love you all my life and protect you” I thought.
“Congratulations! The seal around your memories has been removed and your sense of smell has been restored.But there seems to be some strange incantation on you.Although the incantation hasn’t taken effect yet, it might be dangerous in the future.I’m sorry, but I’m not strong enough to remove it.I don’t even know what it is exactly.You should ask a more powerful wizard for help.If you like, I can give you the contact information of several wizards I know.You should visit them.Maybe one of them can solve your problem.”
As Roy spoke, he jotted down a few numbers on a piece of paper to give tome.
“Thank you for all of your help, Roy.”
I took the paper from him gratefully and carefully tucked it inside my pocket.
Even so, I couldn’t relax just yet.
I had finally regained my memories, but a new problem cropped up.
Why was there an incantation on me? Was this Caroline’s doing? But the good news was that I remembered every detail between me and Jennifer.
‘‘Jennifer, my love, I will cherish you more!”
