Mated in the Shadow of my Sister Chapter 69

Chapter 0069

(Alpha Brady POV)

I am an idiot. An absolute, complete, utter idiot.

First, I rejected my mate.

And now… now I am falling head over heels in love with someone else’s.

What is wrong with me?!?!?!

I should have known the second that my father asked me if I loved Lily. He has always been far more intuitive than I give him credit for. I am supposed to be the special wolf, and yet he always seems to

know things far earlier than I do.

When he first asked me if I loved Lily, I did not want to admit it. I knew that I was attracted to her, but told myself that it was impossible that I already loved her. Lily and I had only just met, and she had a ton

of trauma that she was working through. My interest in her was primarily to be her friend and help her. Of

course, it did not hurt that she was incredibly hot and kind and funny… but no, I did not love her. I could

not; I had not been romantically interested in a she–wolf since Evelyn.

And yet the second my father asked me if I loved Lily, a part of me knew he was right. I fought it for a while… but being here in Hawaii with her has caused even the most reluctant part of me to accept the


I am not falling in love with Lily; I have fallen in love with Lily.

F&&k my life.

Here I am, in the most romantic state in the United States, with a she–wolf that I have just realized that I

am in love with, and I am basically forcing her to meet with her ex–mate.

How did I end up in this position? Is this my punishment for what I did to Evelyn?

I know we are here for Lily’s own safety. We need to find out what James wants and then close that

chapter of their lives. But what if James decides that he wants her back? Worse, what if Lily decides

that she wants him back too? Getting over Evelyn was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to

  1. do. Truth be told, I am still not over her. Am I prepared to get my heart broken for second time?

Honestly, in retrospect, I wish I had convinced Lily that we needed to meet James somewhere else.

Somewhere with a cold, snowy climate that requires lots and lots of layers of clothing. Alaska would

have been a great choice. But no, stupid me had to agree to Hawall. A place that not only screams

romance and honeymoon fantasies, but which also all but demands that Lily walk around in tiny little



I made sure to plan a lot of activities for Lily and I while we were here. I thought doing so would be good

to help her keep her mind off of James, and I think for the most part it worked. We were having a lot of fun. Heck, even our wolves were having fun together. Kalen is not quite as smitten with Rose as I am

with Lily he still misses Evelyn and her wolf-, but even Kalen is smitten, and I can tell he is becoming

more and more smitten every day.

At night, Kalen and I would talk about strategies for what we would do or say when we saw James. We

had never been good friends with James, but we knew each other and got along fine. Unfortunately, that

was the past… before I found out what has been happening in his pack for years, right under his nose. It is

tough for me to not want to pound him into a pulp… not only for what he did to Lily, but also what he has

allowed to happen in his pack.

The night before the meeting with James, I dragged Lily to a traditional Hawaiian luau. I thought dinner

and a show would be a great distraction for both her and myself.

I did not anticipate that the dancers would pull Lily on stage. Nor did I anticipate that they would have

her change into a coconut bra and grass skirt. And I absolutely did not anticipate that Lily would be so d&

&n good at belly dancing.

As I watched her dance and start to follow the professional dancers around the room, I made a decision.

I did not care why we were in Hawall; I did not care who we would be meeting with tomorrow; and I did

not care if I eventually had my heart broken. I would live for that moment.

I grabbed Lily as she walked back over to our table. I looked into her eyes, searching for any sign of

hesitation. Seeing none, I leaned in to kiss her.

Just before our lips met, that a&&hole James made his appearance. His loud growl from the back of the

pavilion caused everyone in the pavillion to freeze. Eyes glaring at us, he then walked towards the stage,

with an attitude suggesting that he thought he owned the place. He would soon learn, he did not.

I moved forward towards James, ready to fight him. Lily gently grabbed my arm, silently begging me not

to do anything that I would regret. Unfortunately, what she failed to realize is that punching the lights out

of James would never be something that I would regret.
