Read Alpha Asher [by Jane Doe] Chapter 33 – Once all of the packing was finished, the three of us headed to the kitchen for dinner. Ten minutes into dinner and halfway through my first plate, there was a knock on the door.

“It’s probably Beta Devin.” I nodded to my Dad, standing to get the door.

Beta Devin stood patiently on our patio, a grim smile forming on his face as I answered the door.

“Lola.” Beta Devin nodded, regarding me strangely. A few guys stood behind him, and from the looks of it they were Alpha Asher’s men.

“All my stuff is packed. It’s all in my bedroom.” I nodded at the other guys. “Come on in.”

Beta Devin stepped through the doorway, while the other men headed straight to my bedroom. They wasted no time carrying my boxes out and loading them into a dark SUV.

“Is there somewhere private we can talk?” Beta Devin gave me a pointed look.

I nodded and headed to my now empty bedroom. I closed the door behind us for good measure, plopping down on my neatly made bed. It gave me a strange nostalgic feeling as I looked around my nearly empty bedroom. It hadn’t looked like this since I left and ran away to Grandma’s. How much things have changed in the short time I’ve been home.

“I would like to make it known that I am the only one Alpha Asher has informed of..well last night’s events.” Beta Devin cleared his throat. For such a huge and intimidating man, he sure looked uncomfortable.

“I understand.” I gave him a strained smile. “I trust you to keep it to yourself.”

As strange as it sounded, I did trust Beta Devin. He wasn’t a bad guy by any means, he was just a simple man loyal to his Alpha. His next response didn’t surprise me.

“I will, unless Alpha Asher informs me otherwise.” Beta Devin nodded, “You have to understand, if the Vampire’s are behind these murders Alpha Asher will be forced to take action.”

“I understand completely.” I nodded, and truly I did. “The pack comes first. The attacks were completely unprovoked from what it looks like.”

“You’d be able to turn your back on the Vampire’s if Alpha Asher declared war?” Beta Devin watched me intently, a strange emotion flickering in his eyes.

“Of course.” I nodded, “I might be half-vampire, but my loyalty remains the same.”

Beta Devin nodded, “I hope you find your decision easy and without consequence. In my experience, it is—difficult to turn your back on what you are.”

I wanted to ask Beta Devin to elaborate, but the haunted look in his eyes kept me from questioning further.

“I will need you to provide a full description of what the Vampire looked like.” Beta Devin pulled out his phone, his eyes watching my face intently.

Something stirred within me, something that protested speaking out against Tristan. The scarlett mark on my shoulder ached, but I refused to let it hold me back. My emotions for Tristan were because of the mark, nothing more.

“Light blonde hair, down to his shoulders.” I murmured, “Blue eyes, large build.”

My mind was wandering, being su*ked into last nights memory. I could still feel his cold lips against my skin, quenching the fire that seared my body.

“And what was he wearing?” Beta Devin cleared his throat.

“Wearing?” I trailed off. I couldn’t what Tristan was wearing. My attention wasn’t on his clothes, but on his body and the feelings he ignited within me.

“I understand.” Beta Devin truly did look like he understood. “Once your mind clears, inform me if any other details rise to the surface.”

“I will.” I promised.

“Alpha Asher requests I bring you to the pack house myself.” Beta Devin gave me another wry smile.
