MARRIED TO THE ALPHA - Season 4 Episode 63
Maya returned from her shopping with Nora and Mindy, and as soon as they unloaded shopping bags from the car, Maya went to visit Gideon.
After training, Caden went to set up security cameras in the house where Marcy and George were.
Mindy and Kalina were eager to hear more details about the whole Marcy and George business and they met with Talia in the lounge.
After confirming that Nora was in her room, and other guys from the Lightclaw pack were resting, Talia played loud music to cover up their voices as she gave them the latest updates.
Mindy and Kalina were flabbergasted. Talia told them that morning that she suspected how something was happening between Marcy and George, but them being mates brought the whole thing to a totally different level.
Maya told them that she and Mindy will take Nora shopping in an attempt to keep Nora busy after lunch without further explanations, and now it all made sense in a completely unexpected way.
“The story of how they are sightseeing the territory won’t hold on for long.”, Kalina said. “What will you do if they don’t wake up soon? And even if they wake up, they might start shouting how you did something to their wolves and deny the whole mate thing. It’s not like you can prove it. The bond is gone now.”
Talia shrugged helplessly. “Let’s take this one step at a time. We hope they will wake up, and leave this place on their own, otherwise, we will need to come up with some majestic excuse as to why they came here, disappeared, and no one saw them leaving. There is no way we can deliver them in their current state, and if they get worse… I don’t want to think about it.”
“Don’t worry, Lia.”, Mindy said. “You can count on us. We will help how much we can.”
“Help with what?”, Nora’s voice came from the door.
Mindy cursed internally. She was about to suggest how they can kill Marcy and George while they are incapacitated. Two people will wear disguises and dress up as Marcy and George in order to make appearances in the human town and leave evidence behind, with the last traces being two plane tickets to Vegas. The official story will be that Marcy and George eloped. The plan needed some polishing here and there, but it was solid. Unfortunately, now that Nora came, Mindy’s brilliant plan will need to wait to see the light of day.
“We were talking about the upcoming party.”, Kalina was quick to respond. “We are running out of time, and Marcy decided to check out the territory of the Dark Howlers pack.”
Nora’s eyebrows shot up. “She did? When will she be back?”
“Who knows?”, Mindy said. “Marcy is acting like this is a vacation, and all the hard work fell on our shoulders. George is accompanying her.”
Kalina bobbed her head. “Well, we were planning to make this a surprise party and we were ready, but Marcy introduced some changes at the last moment, and now we are not sure if she even wants to attend.”
Nora smiled brightly. She didn’t care about the pesky details. With Marcy and George out of the way, she felt like invisible shackles were gone and she could breathe freely. If it’s up to Nora, Marcy and George will be away for a week, or longer. Who cares about an entitled princess and a commander?
“Don’t worry, ladies.”, Nora said in a singing voice while making her way toward them. “I will help. I got the perfect dress and shoes, so I am available. Let’s make this party awesome!”
Talia thought how this will work. This can keep Nora busy and away from the packhouse. Besides, didn’t Mindy just volunteer to help?
“That’s very generous of you, Nora.”, Talia said. “Before dinner, you can go with Mindy to the party store and finalize choices of balloons and streamers. Marcy mentioned that she wants white and purple. Feel free to add a third color.”
“Golden!”, Nora said immediately.
Talia remembered that in the Red Moon pack everything is glitzy and there is a lot of golden accents. No wonder Nora chose that one.
But just agreeing might be suspicious, so Talia added, “Don’t forget that this is the Dark Howlers pack, so you should have some dark gray or black items.” Nora nodded earnestly and Talia continued, “In the morning you will check the bakery. We ordered the main cake and pastries. You will need to ensure they are on time and taste samples… With you checking all these, I can focus on watching that everything is set up here properly… The butcher will prepare a boar. Remind him that it needs to be here by noon so that we start roasting it… Soup and appetizers will come from a restaurant…”
The more Talia spoke, the more Nora’s face fell. With so many things left to do, she won’t have much time to mingle with guys. She was planning to go to the training center and ask a hunk (possibly Alpha Damon) to show her some moves!
Nora reminded herself that she will have plenty of time to flirt at the party. Also, this will be a great chance to show what she can do and leave her personal touch for tomorrow’s party, and Alpha Damon will definitely be impressed. Who knows? With Marcy out of the way, Maybe Nora ends up dancing with him tomorrow, and then they will do much more than dancing!
Nora was all giddy while thinking about it.

By dinner time, Damon arranged guards around the house where Marcy and George were, Caden set up cameras so that they could see two patients and if anyone comes close the house, Maya met with Gideon and returned with a bundle of herbs, and Talia spoke with Travis after his evening visit.
Everyone had updates to share, and since Talia didn’t have the mind-link, the four of them headed to study after dinner.
They were all thinking about the situation with Marcy and George, and didn’t notice that James was trailing them.
“Alpha Damon…”, James called as Damon reached to open the door of the study. “Can we have a word?”
Damon looked at the teenager. “In private, or…?”
James glanced at Maya, Caden, and Talia. “They can be present.”
Damon had a bad feeling about this. Normally, James was absentminded or trying not to attract attention, yet now he was confident and slightly cocky.
Damon sat behind his desk, and Talia stood by his side. Maya and Caden were also there, with their backs to the wall, and James took a seat on the chair opposite Damon.
“How can I help you?”, Damon asked.
“This is about my sister.”, James went straight to the point. “Maybe Nora believes nonsense how Marcy and George went sightseeing, but I don’t.”
