It was his weakness for his fated mate that Kane feared the most.
"Kane, what are you doing out here?" A deep voice interrupted Kane's thoughts, and he turned to see his second-in-command, Logan, approaching.
"Just keeping watch," Kane replied, his eyes scanning the trees for any sign of movement. "We can't afford to let our guard down, not with the rival pack so close."
Logan nodded, his expression serious. "Agreed. But you can't be out here all night. You need to rest, Kane. You're running yourself ragged."
"I'll rest when we're safe," Kane said, his tone brooking no argument. "Until then, I need to stay alert."
Logan sighed, knowing better than to argue with Kane when he was in this mood. "Fine. But at least let me keep watch for a while. You need to take a break."
Kane hesitated for a moment, then nodded. "Alright. But don't let your guard down, Logan. We can't afford any mistakes."
Logan nodded again and took up position on the edge of the forest, his eyes scanning the darkness for any sign of danger. Kane watched him for a moment, then turned and headed back to the pack's camp.
As he walked, Kane's thoughts turned once again to his fated mate. He had known for years that he would eventually find her, but he had never expected her to be a human. Humans were fragile, and they had no place in the world of werewolves. But fate had other plans, and Kane knew he could not defy the pull of the mate bond.
"Kane!" A voice called out, and Kane looked up to see Sophie, the human woman who was his fated mate, approaching.
"Sophie," Kane said, trying to keep his voice neutral. He knew he had to be careful around her to keep his possessive instincts in check.
"What are you doing up so late?" Sophie asked, her brown eyes sparkling with curiosity.
"Just keeping watch," Kane replied, his gaze wandering over her delicate features. She was so small and fragile, and yet he knew she was stronger than she looked. "What about you? Shouldn't you be sleeping?"
Sophie shrugged. "I couldn't sleep. "There are too many thoughts swirling around in my head."
Kane nodded, sensing that there was more to her restlessness than she was letting on. "Is something bothering you?"
Sophie hesitated, then shook her head. "No, it's nothing. Just...thinking about everything that's happened."
Kane knew better than to push her. Sophie was still getting used to the world of werewolves, and he didn't want to overwhelm her. "Alright. But you should try to get some rest. We have a long day ahead of us tomorrow."
Sophie nodded, then hesitated for a moment. "Kane, can I ask you something?"
Kane tensed, sensing that this was not going to be a simple question. "Of course."
Sophie took a deep breath, then blurted out, "Do you ever think about leaving the pack? "Run away with me and start a new life somewhere else?"
Kane was taken aback by the question. He had never considered leaving his pack or his family for anyone or anything. But as he looked into Sophie's eyes, he felt a twinge of doubt. Could he risk everything for her?
Before he could answer, a scream echoed through the forest, shattering the peaceful night. Kane's instincts kicked in, and he turned to face the direction of the sound. He could sense danger and feel the adrenaline pumping through his veins.
"Stay here," he growled, then took off towards the source of the scream.
Sophie watched him go, her heart pounding with fear. She knew she was in danger just by being here, but she couldn't bear the thought of letting Kane face whatever was out there alone. With a deep breath, she followed him into the darkness, praying that they would make it out alive.
Kane ran through the forest, his senses on high alert. He could hear the sounds of a struggle ahead, and he knew that his pack was in danger. He could also sense the presence of the rival pack, their scent thick in the air.
As he approached the scene of the fight, he saw that his pack was outnumbered. The rival pack had more wolves, and they were stronger than Kane's pack. But Kane was not one to back down from a fight, especially not when his family was in danger.
"Kane, over here!" Logan called out, his voice filled with urgency.
Kane raced over to where Logan was fighting off two rival wolves, his teeth bared in a snarl. He launched himself at the wolves, his powerful muscles propelling him forward. The wolves snarled back, their teeth flashing in the moonlight.
Kane could feel his fangs sinking into flesh and the taste of blood filling his mouth. He fought with all his strength, his pack rallying around him. They were outnumbered, but they were not going down without a fight.
Sophie watched from the edge of the clearing, her heart racing with fear. She had never seen a werewolf fight before, and it was both terrifying and awe-inspiring. But she knew she had to help and had to do something to protect the man she loved.
With a deep breath, Sophie stepped forward, her hands glowing with a soft white light. She didn't know what she was doing, but she knew that she had to try. She raised her hands, and a burst of energy shot out toward the rival pack.
The wolves stumbled back, their eyes wide with surprise. Kane turned to look at Sophie, his eyes filled with shock. He had never seen a human use magic before, and he couldn't help but be impressed.
The rival pack, however, was not so easily deterred. They regrouped, snarling and snapping at Kane's pack. The fight continued, with the sound of teeth and claws tearing at flesh echoing through the forest.
Sophie watched in horror as Logan was knocked to the ground, a rival wolf standing over him with bared teeth. She knew she had to act fast; she had to save him before it was too late.
With fierce determination, Sophie raised her hands again, her fingers glowing with intense light. She focused all her energy on the wolf and a burst of energy shot out of her hands.
The wolf howled in pain, stumbling back from Logan's prone form. Sophie rushed forward, her hands still glowing with magic. She raised her hands again, ready to defend herself and Logan against any further attacks.
But the rival pack had had enough. They retreated into the darkness, their eyes glowing with hatred and anger. Kane and his pack watched them go, their eyes still blazing with fury.
Sophie rushed over to Logan, her hands still glowing with magic. She placed her hands over his wounds, and the magic flowed into him, healing his injuries. Logan groaned, his eyes fluttering open.
"Are you okay?" Sophie asked, her voice filled with concern.
Logan nodded, his eyes filled with awe. "That was...incredible. I've never seen anything like it."
Sophie smiled weakly, feeling drained from the exertion. "I don't know what came over me. I just...had to do something."
Kane approached them, his eyes fixed on Sophie. "You saved us," he said, his voice soft.
Sophie felt a flush of warmth spread through her at his words. She had never felt so alive or so powerful. She looked up at Kane, and for a moment, it felt like they were the only two in the world.
But then the reality of the situation hit her, and she knew that they were not out of danger yet. The rival pack was still out there, a threat to their safety.
"We need to get back to camp," Kane said, his eyes scanning the darkness. "We can't stay out here any longer."
Sophie nodded, her heart still pounding with fear. She knew that she had to be careful around Kane to keep her feelings for him in check. But as they walked back to camp together, she couldn't help but feel like she was exactly where she was meant to be.
