I didn't wait for tomorrow. I had to know now, so I called for an emergency meeting with all of my council including the high priest that presided my wedding and the royal augur of my father, Sedsah. As one of the best augur in the realms, I needed to seek his thoughts regarding the magical event that happened earlier. I was that desperate.

As I sat on my seat impatiently, I stared at them when they entered the conference room. I could see the look of confusion in their eyes and saw the unexpressed question swirling in their heads. Why would I want to be with them when I was just married? I should have been on top of my new wife right now pounding her ass off.

I grumbled in my thoughts. Huh. They should know better.

Elijah who had been standing next to me remarked inside my head, 'Look at that. They are quite pissed off with your sudden call for a meeting. They were having a good time in your wedding reception you know.'

'Fuck off, Elijah, ' I sent him a glare.

"You called Your Highness?" my beta, William, asked once they all settled on their chairs. The oval table in front of us was large. On normal days, it would have been filled with spread papers and maps. Now it was devoid of them probably because the servants thought I'd turn this day into a holiday.

Not a chance.

"I'm sure you all saw what happened to me and my...bride earlier right?" I asked, keeping eye contact with each and everyone of them.

William lowered his head and visibly cleared his throat while the high priest flashed a toothy grin. The others, well, they broke into a proud smile, probably seeing the event a good sign.

"It was a wonderful sight to behold, my liege, " Hindall, the high priest, commented. He leaned closer against the desk and looked at me with bright eyes.

I took this as an opportunity to go straight to the point.

"Do you know what's the meaning of this mark on our wrists?" Holding my right arm up, the crescent moon mark protruded

you're hiding something from me." He crossed his arms and examined me like a sly wolf that he was and widened his grin.

My temper couldn't hold on much longer.

"Get out, Elijah. Let me be at peace!"

"Okay, good, " he raised his hands up in defeat and stood up from his seat. "I won't tease you anymore, but a word of advice? Go to your chamber now and spend some time with your new wife."

I frowned. "I'll cut off your tongue if you don't shut up, Elijah."

"Sure, sure, " he answered noncomitally, "but we could still mind-link you know."

"Just get out..." I rubbed my forehead.

He probably saw the tiredness on my face, so he decided to fully surrender.

"Okay, brother. Just remember that I'm here if you want someone to talk to."

"Yes, Elijah, " I muttered under my breath without even looking at him.

Eshtha...

My made-up word kept on lingering inside my head. It was teasing me, taunting me, and haunting me more than my younger brother did.

If he knew what the word meant, he'd probably laugh at my kid self. He'd probably say I was beyond myself, aiming high for a relationship that didn't exist.

"Eshtha..."

I tested the word on my mouth in real time and it gave me a shudder.

"Mate..." my lycan side translated and with that, thoughts of the woman filled me like a flood.
