My Hockey Alpha Chapter 249 My Hockey Alpha Chapter 249: The Next #Chapter Nina As I stared down at my twin sister’s sleeping body, I couldn’t help but think that she looked oddly peaceful and innocent for the first time since I had met her. It almost made me wonder if there was a version of Selena in there somewhere that wasn’t evil and full of schemes.
My friends and I sat in the infirmary for a while longer, talking about what happened in the werewolf realm. The Luna was still in control, and we had no way of knowing what she would do to us and the entire world. If she really
was so hell-bent on cleansing all humans from the earth, then something made me think that she had a lot more allies than I realized. When we fought Selena at first, I thought that she was working alone. I thought that she was just a bitter and scared child who was afraid that I would steal her mate, and nothing more. Even when I discovered that she was working with the witch, I thought that that was it; surely no one else was working alongside her. But oh, how wrong I was. Selena wasn’t even the mastermind behind it all.
The Luna was the true mastermind, controlling both Selena and the Alpha King like puppets. Was the Selena that I had come to know even the true Selena, or was she another victim of the Luna’s? If we managed to fight the Luna and stop her, just as we had with Selena, would we discover that Selena had a spell on her? Would the spell break to reveal a normal girl who wasn’t nearly as evil as we thought? However, only time would tell.
We needed to question Selena about several things, starting with whether or not the Luna was working with the Crescents; and we needed to figure it out as soon as possible, because if the Luna was going to show up at any moment and wreak havoc on our town, we needed to be prepared. Eventually, Selena began to wake up as we all sat around. “Ugh…” she groaned, reaching up to touch her temple again, only to find that it had been bandaged up while she slept. Her eyes cracked open, squinting even against the dim light of the infirmary, and she slowly swiveled her head to look at us.
“Rise and shine, princess,” Enzo said, sounding condescending. I nudged him with my elbow and shot him a dark look, shaking my head. Right now, we didn’t need to be angering Selena; we needed her to be calm so that she would give us some information.
Where am I?” Selena croaked, looking around confusedly. “Am I back home?” I stood from my chair and walked over to the side of her bed. When I came into her field of vision, she groaned again and even attempted to spit on me. I jumped out of the way, grimacing as I saw the ball of spit land on the ground near my feet. “You’re in the campus infirmary,” I said, trying my best to stay calm and not antagonize her.
“I took care of the bruise on your head.” “Gee. Thanks.” Selena frowned deeply and slowly sat up. I tried to help her, but she slapped my hands away and even growled a little. It seemed that, even without her wolf, she still had those same wolf mannerisms. “We need to ask you some questions,” Enzo said, walking up to her next with his hands in his pockets. “And we need you to answer them.” Selena looked around at all of us, then scoffed.
“I’m not saying shit,” she replied. “Fuck you guys.” “Hey!” Lori suddenly exclaimed, storming up to Selena and causing Selena’s eyes to go wide when she saw the angry look on Lori’s face. “Watch it. You’re already on thin ice after all of the trouble you’ve caused. Despite everything, Nina saved you and even went so far as to patch up your stupid little head. You should be begging for forgiveness.” Selena just glared back at Lori for a long time.
No one spoke during that time, and the air in the infirmary felt so thick and heavy that I was certain I could cut it with a knife if I wanted to. But finally, Selena’s icy blue eyes slid over to me and looked me up and down, and she folded her arms across her chest. “I’m still not talking,” she growled. “Mother will come and save me soon, and then you’ll all be sorry.”
I couldn’t help but laugh. “She is not your mother,” I replied. “She hates you. You were just a pawn in her game and nothing more. Don’t you remember how she treated you when she found out that you were a human? Doesn’t your head still hurt from the fall and the way that she shoved her shoe into your temple? Or maybe I should rip off that bandage and remind you how much it hurt.” My sister didn’t say anything, but I could see a flash of something in her eyes. I could tell that what I said resonated with her, at least a little bit. Honestly, I felt bad for her; the Luna had her so manipulated that she genuinely saw her as her own mother, leaving her oblivious to the horrendous things that the Luna was trying to accomplish.
The Luna could have killed Selena, and Selena never would have blamed her for it. “Come on, Selena,” Enzo said. “Just talk to us. Is the Luna going to attack? Is she going to kill the Alpha King?” “Ha!” Selena laughed. “Mother would never kill Daddy. Don’t you know how much fighting that would cause? Hordes of men would attack the mansion thinking that they could become the next Alpha King. Mother isn’t stupid.” I couldn’t help but let out a small sigh of relief. At least the Alpha King was safe, at least for now. But it still didn’t answer whether the Luna would be on her way to slaughter everyone she could get her hands on soon. “Listen, Selena,”
I said, placing my hands on my hips. “I know you don’t want to die. And the Luna, whether you want to believe it or not, is going to try to kill you. You can either give us information to help us stop that from happening, so we can protect you, or you can be stubborn and basically just lie down and let her murder you along with thousands — millions, if she gets her way in the end — of people. Is that what you want?
Selena was silent for a long time. I could see her pursing her lips and chewing the inside of her cheek, and her eyes were narrowed as she glared at me. But at the same time, I knew that I was right; she didn’t want to die. She still had an ounce of self preservation in her body. “Look, I don’t know when she’ll attack,” she finally said. “For now, she has what she wants: the throne. With daddy manipulated, she has all of the power. But you’re a threat to that, so it’s only a matter of time before she sends her lackeys.”
“And who are these ‘lackeys’?” Enzo asked. “Are they Crescents? Rogues? Both?” But it seemed that we had exhausted Selena’s generosity, because she didn’t answer. She simply shrugged and laid back down on the bed, turning over to face away from us. I sighed and looked at Enzo, who looked back at me with wide eyes. There was nothing that could be done. Perhaps, in time, Selena would offer some more information. Maybe she would even break free of the Luna’s brainwashing and would see that we weren’t the enemy, and she would help us. But for now, all we could do was keep a close eye on her until that moment came. And for now, I just wanted to go home with Enzo and pretend that things were normal for just one night.
