Chapter 35: The Lucky Toad Third Person 

The triplet alphas had every pack member on high alert. Every warrior was scouring the pack lands for Chasity. The pack lands were on lockdown. No one could enter or leave without explicit permission from the Alphas. There was a curfew mandated by the Alphas. Beta Keaton was displeased. Something very upsetting had made his way to his desk this morning, the first morning after Chasity’s disappearance.

“What is this, Alpha?” Said Beta Keaton, beseeching his former Alpha Romeo handing him the list. Alpha Romeo scanned the list of suspects. He sighed.

“Roxie and Moxie are suspects!” Whispered Beta Keaton fiercely. “We’re friends, Romeo. Our children are friends. Felix and Roxie used to date. They were at her party last night.”

“That’s why the girls are suspects, Keaton,” said Romeo tiredly. “It’s nothing personal. The party was the last event Chasity was seen by many at. And all of the triplet’s exes are suspects. Even the party planner, Ronda, who they never dated! She just kinda envied Chasity.”

Keaton took a deep breath, arms akimbo, displacing his blazer backwards.

“The triplets even accused us,” said Romeo exasperatedly.

“You and the Luna?” Asked Keaton.

Romeo nodded sadly.

“Losing a mate is tough. It’s…there’s nothing worse than that…” said Keaton his voice cracking up. He had had his daughters with his second chance mate. His original mate had met an untimely end.

Romeo clapped Keaton on the back. “They’re not real suspects. They’ll just be interviewed.”

“I have a mate!” Snapped Roxie, glaring at the private investigator flanked by pack warriors.

He had brought in because he was the best. His name was Danny Saunders. He was almost as tall as the triples with chiselled features, a five o’clock shadow, an impressive moustache, dark eyes, thick eyebrows, full lips and shaggy wavy brown hair. He was in his mid-thirties. He had been a P. I. For the past decade and a pack warrior for seven years before that, from the day he turned eighteen.

“Ok, Ms Roxie, I know, just answer the question, please,” said Danny.

“I would never be jealous of Chasity. Felix and I were happy for each other when we found our mates,” Roxie said, sniffing.

“The question was did you tell Chasity to go to the landing bathroom knowing full well that Sandra, Tonya and Avery were waiting there to confront her?” He repeated getting tired of this.

“Well…yeah,” she admitted.

The other was in the more secluded suburbs where rich pack members lived in a mall. The mall outlet was much emptier. No lines really. Friendly staff. No shoving. I was in driving distance of that mall most likely. I highly doubted Dante had a pregnancy test just lying around unless he was a humungous ladies’ man and even then a pregnancy test was a stretch. He must have bought it after I started vomiting.
