MARRIED TO THE ALPHA - VOLUME 2 - Season 10 Episode 23
Alpha Edward had to acknowledge that George’s story matched what Nora and that Omega boy (aka Oscar) have said.
It all pointed to Ana being a spy. Ana was born in the Red Moon pack. Since when was she working as a spy? For whom? Was that why she spread her legs for him? Alpha Edward had so many questions and he was unsure what to do. Was he compromised?
‘Ana is in my office. What should I do with her?’ Alpha Edward asked George.
‘I suggest you don’t bring up the spying, and we try to use Ana to see who hired her. But if you think she is onto us knowing, then it’s better to cut our losses and imprison her before she tips off her employer. She knows that traitors have only one ending so we can’t assume that she will tell us the truth. We might as well start with torture right away…’
‘Dear? Am I interrupting?’ Luna Layla’s impatient voice sounded in Alpha Edward’s head, covering George’s words.
‘Let’s talk later,’ Alpha Edward said to George, and then he responded to his Luna’s summons. ‘Yes?’
‘Our guests are here. Do you expect me to welcome them with a smile while you are shagging an Omega?’
Alpha Edward cursed inwardly. How did she know that he was alone with Ana? But… ‘I’m not shagging…’

‘Save it!’ Luna Layla cut him off. ‘We have an agreement. You can do whatever you want as long as you are doing your duty as an Alpha and as my partner. It is our son’s sixteenth birthday. Stop thinking with your dick! I’m tired of smiling while you get your fill of random bitches. Tuck it into your pants and come here before I make a scene in front of your guests!’
Alpha Edward puffed his cheeks. They were her guests also!
Normally, he wouldn’t let his Luna talk to him like that, but this time she had a point of him being absent, even though the reason was off. Would she be more understanding if she knew he was dealing with potential treason? Actually, it was not potential. It was real. The only question was who the traitor was.
Alpha Edward looked at Ana, whose cheek was now turning purple, and it was swollen to the point of her eye closing. James’ palmprint on her neck was still there. What above-average healing nonsense?
If that were any other Omega, she wouldn’t get access to talk to him, and he wouldn’t listen, and he would end her life for accusing a Commander of treason without evidence. If there was any evidence, it pointed to Ana being a liar, yet she was still breathing. Was he thinking with his dick?
He was Alpha Edward of the Red Moon pack. Alpha of the second largest pack in North America. He was powerful with a lot of resources and influence, and his image crumbled to him wasting time listening to an Omega who was accusing his top people of treason.
Ana could see Alpha Edward’s expression turning icy, and she panicked.
“I’m not lying! I would never lie to you.”
Alpha Edward didn’t respond, and Ana felt her mouth going dry. Will he kill her here?
“Just think about what I said. It all makes sense!”
Alpha Edward frowned. “Do you think I’m stupid?”
“No, no! Of course, not! I understand you have a lot of information to consider, which can sometimes get mixed. But think about this…” Ana licked her lips nervously. “Didn’t you say how Luna Talia’s background is mysterious? It’s not mysterious. No one knows where she came from because she came from here. She was a nobody, an Omega hiding in the attic. I saw her there… I can call other Omegas who also know. They can confirm her identity.”
“You heard James,” Alpha Edward said. “Even if that part is true, it doesn’t change anything.”
“It does!” Ana exclaimed. “It’s proof that I’m not lying.”
“One truth doesn’t explain lies.”
Ana’s chin trembled. “What lies?”
Alpha Edward’s eyes moved to Ana’s cheek and then to her neck. “The bruises. How did you heal after they bullied you if you can’t heal from this?” And there was the point of her coming onto George. Why would George lie about that?
“Ready?” Luna Layla asked while peeking into James’ room. The birthday boy was set to appear in the event hall with his parents accompanying him.
“Yes,” James responded while straightening the lapels of his suit jacket. He wondered if his chocolate-colored Goddess would approve of the black suit with dark blue details. It made his blue eyes stand out, and Cornelia said more than once that he had sexy eyes. Did this suit make him sexier? Will she like it?
Luna Layla approached James and started fixing his necktie.
James observed his mother, who was a few inches shorter than him. Luna Layla’s blonde hair was lifted into an elegant bun that was secured with diamond pins, and her impeccable makeup emphasized her almond-shaped blue eyes and thin lips colored in red. She was a woman in her late thirties, but she didn’t look older than twenty-five. The mascara and eyeliner contributed to making her look like a doll.
“Where is the father?” James asked.
Luna Layla gave him a stiff smile. “He is busy. We will start without him.”

James didn’t respond. He was confident that Alpha Edward was busy with Ana, and he was pretty sure that his mother knew.
There was a time when he wanted to confront his father and console his mother, but then he realized how that was normal for them, and after a while, James thought it was normal for everyone.
No one talks about relationships without drama, and the only stories he heard were about Alphas sleeping around.
James wondered, how could his mother live like that? He wanted to ask her that question many times, but he held back. It was none of his business.
Alpha Edward’s debauchery was a public secret. Everyone knew about it, but no one talked about it.
There were some rumors about Luna Layla, but everything was vague, and James had a hint that those rumors were spread by his mother herself, so it didn’t look like she was only being cheated on. James knew that the only time when his mother was out of sight, it was with her girlfriends when they went shopping or to a spa. If she used those outings to see men, those so-called girlfriends would talk about it, and someone would hear, but again… it was none of this business.
James was in his early teens when he decided not to think about the relationship his parents had. Before his eighteenth birthday, he would leave all this behind and go no contact. That was the only way for him to survive.
However, since James met Cornelia, he wondered how his parents could pull it off.
The idea of Cornelia being with another man was driving him mad. How was it possible that his mother was indifferent when her mate was sleeping with other women? What was holding her to stay with Alpha Edward, who sought pleasure and comfort in others? Was it possible that she didn’t know what people were saying behind her back? Whatever benefits Alpha Edward offered her twenty years ago were gone. Or was this beyond benefits?
