«The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son.by Teague CHAPTER ONE Chase watched Sean from the rearview mirror. He was changing a flat on the truck, ...»
“Why?” Chase asked. “Why am I here? Why am I not like the others?” Polus paused and studied Chase. “Things are going to happen quickly now. The time to prepare you has now passed. It was time we talked. You need to know some things about what you are and why you don’t look like my wife’s other children. I have created you to be something far more useful than a mere Werewolf. There is nothing of coincidence about you Chase. Everything that brought you to this point was for a reason” Chase bit at his fingernail. “I’m just a kid” “You’re a prince” Polus corrected him.
“My Dad…” “Is just a Werewolf” the God finished.
“He’s the Alpha. THE Alpha!” “He’s a Werewolf” Polus said again, calmly.
Chase wrestled with this. “A prince of what?” The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son………by Teague “A prince of Phoebe. And her champion” “I’m not strong!” Chase countered.
“You don’t need to be” Polus refuted.
“I’m a Werewolf, but not a Werewolf? I’m invisible and fast. I’m not strong; I’m nothing like my Father!” Chase began to need answers. His mind was catching up faster than he could process.
Polus took control. “You are unique. You have abilities that no other child of Phoebe has ever had.
And you’re going to need them. Every one of them” He let this settle in Chase’s mind. The boy’s eyes shifted around as he tried to put everything in its place.
Then Chase looked right at him and startled him with a question he didn’t expect.
“So? What did you give me…Dad?” Chase asked.
Polus laughed and leaned down with a grin. “Funny you should ask!”
CHAPTER EIGHTPolus spoke and Chase listened, absorbing everything the God said. His mind was too small for most of it. The history of what he was seemed beyond him. The game was too grand for Chase to understand fully. The massive man waved his hand in the air and an image of Chase’s mother appeared. Polus pointed to her and told Chase things about her he never knew. He explained how important it was that she was his mother and why he was born to her and not a female Werewolf.
The next image was of Chase’s father. Polus spoke of him but these things Chase already knew for the most part. Phoebe had told him a great deal about the Grand Alpha and the importance he had to play in the development of the packs, but he listened anyway, and felt a swell of pride as Polus showed his admiration for Michael and explained just how powerful a man he really was.
Next was Phoebe. Polus spoke of her lovingly, telling him how special Chase was to her, and how she looked after him. She was his celestial mother, the one responsible for every major event in his life.
Images of two more females appeared. Both were regal and far beyond human. These were other Gods that had taken part in Chase’s birth. One he knew was Theia, the Goddess of Night, the other, he had never seen before. When Polus spoke of her, Chase looked back with wide eyes, unable to believe what the God told him.
“So that’s why I…?” The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son………by Teague Polus nodded and cut him off in mid-sentence. “Yes Chase. It’s with her blessing that you have such union. All wolves are blessed that way, but never by HER directly, and never to such an extreme degree” “I thought all Werewolves would naturally feel at home there?” “Oh, they do” Polus said, “But only you bear HER mark. It was a favor to Phoebe that she allowed it. Your age had something to do with it” Polus looked up for a moment. “She has a…soft spot…for children” Polus waved his hand again and the image of DeMarco appeared. Chase moved back and held up his hands.
“NO” Polus paused. “There are things that you needed Chase. Things that none of us can provide you, at least not directly. I told you, there are rules that must be obeyed or you could never have been created in the first place; or Phoebe would no longer be allowed to create ____________” Chase’s mind blinked again. This was becoming annoying. Instead of just giving it a name, Polus pushed a large packet of information right into Chase’s brain, making it overload every time he named the beast inside Chase. He rubbed at his head as his mind scrambled to process the rushing thoughts.
“But there are others that have what you need. And there are no rules about taking from them” Polus smiled. “After all, I didn’t make the Vampire bite you. I didn’t make him come to Montana and hunt your Father. That was all HIS doing” A sly grin appeared on Polus’s handsome face, and Chase thought that most of what he said was either a lie, or at the very least, an extreme exaggeration.
“You could have fought him. Your will was almost as strong as his; you got that from your Father, but Phoebe stopped you. She prevented your wolf from fighting and instead allowed the creature to come in. The Vampire didn’t realize the connection he made with you went both ways. That was sloppy planning if you ask me” The God smiled. “Phoebe directed your beast to then take what it needed. It ripped out a part of the Vampire that had taken centuries for him to develop. He had advanced far beyond his age and his power was only going to increase with the death of your Father. Or so he believed” Polus smiled again. “Had he lived, he would have realized what he lost” Polus held up his hands in defeat, “…but, alas, that didn’t happen”
Chase looked scared. “I don’t want that!”
“But you need it. Of all the gifts you were given, that is the most important. She won’t go away easily Chase. Not until she has what she wants, and no one, not you, not you’re Father, or his wife, or the rest of the packs, for that matter, can stop her. At least not the way things are. That’s why you don’t look like them. The other wolves I mean. Your special, made for something far more than mere footwork” The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son………by Teague “But if I do that… how will I…?” Chase was having a hard time accepting this.
“I haven’t given you anything you can’t handle Chase” he said simply. “Your Father was picked for something similar a long time ago. It’s a rare gift for a Werewolf, to have another beast inside of it. You’ve seen what your Father can do, I mean really do…when he chooses that is. This really is no different” He waved his hand and an image of his Michael’s true BEAST filled the air.
Chase looked up at the towering God. “That’s why I’m not strong isn’t it? It’s because of him!” He pointed to the image of the Vampire.
Polus nodded. “Yes Chase. I told you, strength is not needed. You have something far greater” Chase took in a deep breath. He touched his face. “My eyes…” Polus sat back. “Yes, those big golden eyes. One of my better ideas if I say so myself” Chase looked at him uncertainly. “They’ll really work the way you say?” The God nodded. “Money back guarantee” he smiled. He leaned forward and rested his arms on his huge legs. The images faded from view. “Chase, there are many things I would like to tell you, but life is something you must experience on your own. I’ve gone to the limit that I’m allowed, the rest is up to you. You can fight and use the gifts we’ve given you, or…not. The choice is yours” He reached out and put a hand on Chase’s shoulder. “There are difficult time ahead Chase and you won’t be able to count on anyone else to help you. It’s important that you remember that you’re never alone. Know that before this deed is done, you will see me one more time” the God held up one finger.
“So that’s it? That’s all I get? No handbook of evil or a guide to use my powers?” Polus sighed. “I’m afraid not. But it’s alright to not have all the answers Chase…you’re not supposed to” he smiled warmly. “But always remember…you have Gods on your side” Chase looked up and touched the God’s massive hand that was still on his shoulder, a trickle of power flowed through his skin at the point of contact. The man was pure energy!
“But there are other Gods? Gods that don’t want me to succeed?” Damn, Polus thought. He really is fast! He took in a breath. “Yes Chase, there are. And to answer your next question, they want to win as well. They, like we, have given their champions gifts also” Polus squeezed Chase’s shoulder. “But it’s nice to have the God of Intelligence in your corner” he smiled. “Or so I’m told” he winked.
Polus sat back and looked around. “It’s almost time. She has only one number left” The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son………by Teague Chase didn’t understand who Polus was referring too and the God gave no explanation. He looked down at Chase.
“Time works differently here” he waved around. “And I can’t have you going into battle while your distracted” He took hold of his garment and adjusted it. “So, I think you have time for just one more thing!” he grinned and lifted up his hand and snapped his fingers.
Chase vanished in a pool of brilliant blue-white light.
The God sat back in thought and seconds later a beautiful woman with black hair appeared at his side.
“My love” he extended his hand and took hers, leaning down to kiss it.
“Polus, he’s ready?” The God nodded. “As ready as I could make him” “I wish there was another way. Why this fell on my doorstep, I’ll never know. My people should not have to fight this battle” He nodded. “True my love. But I can’t think of anyone more capable. Your army is vast and powerful” “He’s so young” Phoebe said.
“But he’s strong. He gets that from his Mother” “A remarkable woman, considering she has no divine power. Except faith, that is. You choose wisely my husband” Polus nodded in gratitude and Phoebe squeezed at his hand.
“She’s so young” the Goddess said fearfully, changing the subject slightly. “Her death will destroy Michael” Polus’s face darkened. “I don’t like involving children. That wasn’t our choice, it was HER’S” Phoebe leaned closer to him. “Luckily my sister felt the same way. I could have never secured her blessing for Chase without the involvement of Emma” She looked at her husband with soulful eyes.
“She doesn’t even belong to me and I fear for her” Polus nodded and kissed her forehead. “That’s because you’re a mother, as is your sister. But if things go the way I want them to, then the Druid child will also know the touch of Polus” The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son………by Teague Phoebe smiled at him, her black hair shimmering with moonlight. “It’s comforting to have the God of Intelligence as your husband” Polus sat back with mock surprise. “Are you saying you married me for my mind?” Phoebe leaned in and kissed his warm mouth. “Well…not the only reason” She pulled back and tugged at his hand, making him stand.
Polus pulled her into his arms and kissed her deeply. “Come my love. Let us shake the heavens. And let me remind you that your husband is a God!” He waved his hand and a massive bed appeared, stone pillars framing it. The moon suddenly glowed down upon them. He unfastened his garment and it fell to the floor. Phoebe shook her shoulders slightly and her gown slowly dropped away, glowing with the light of the moon.
“By the Gods you’re beautiful!” he lifted her up in his arms and carried her to the bed.
Phoebe kissed at his thick neck. “Where did you send him?” Polus looked at her with a grin. “Every warrior must lust before the war!” Phoebe nodded, understanding. “Oh. I see. He would have made a good Werewolf” Polus lay her on the bed and moved on top of her.
Andreas pulled Sean into his arms. He shook the boy, blonde hair tossing about. “SEAN!” The teenager’s eyes snapped open and he looked at Andreas for a moment before suddenly grabbing the man’s shirt and pulling it down.
“CHASE!” “He isn’t here! What happened to you?” Sean moved to his feet as Andreas helped him. He looked around. “What time is it? How long have I been out?” “It’s after seven Sean” The Book of Lies Book 2 of Werewolf and Son………by Teague “SEVEN?” Sean rubbed his head. “I was talking to Chase, and then he went to his room. I remember feeling so tired all of a sudden. I remember dropping to my knees and then…nothing” “Someone was here?” Sean shook his head. “No. No, I don’t think so” Andreas looked at him and then tested Sean. “Your wolf?” Sean didn’t understand. “I was human the whole time” The big man shook his head. “No. Call to your wolf” Sean pushed away from him. Andreas was confusing him more and he didn’t like the man’s request.
“Why?” “Because something happened to me earlier and I want to know if it was just me or not” Sean stepped back and took in a deep breath.
Sean’s eyes went wide. “IT’S GONE!!” Andreas moved forward and put his hands on Sean’s shoulders. “Sean, don’t be afraid. The same thing happened to me. It will come back” “Back? Where the fuck did it go? I’m in service to the ALPHA!” Andreas nodded. “Yeah. Well, that doesn’t seem to matter. Whatever drove my wolf away did it without any effort at all. I doubt even Michael could stand against it” Sean was frightened. He had never been separated from his animal before. Andreas moved forward and wrapped his arms around him.
“I won’t leave you until it returns. No one will harm you, I swear!” This was important for several reasons. One, Sean was not a member of Andreas’s pack. His allegiance was sworn to Daruth. Second, being so vulnerable in front of another, a rival wolf was dangerous.
Another wolf might have seen the opportunity and killed Sean right there. He could have weakened the Alpha and moved one step closer to power. But Andreas was no such wolf, and Sean was grateful for it.
“You’re a good man Andreas” Sean whispered. “I will tell the Alpha of your protection” His arms hugged at the man’s muscled frame.
