"What are you thinking about?" Carter asked me as he wrapped an arm around my waist.

"Nothing really, I'm still very thankful that you let them go. I didn't like seeing them locked up in cages." Carter frowned at me and sighed.

"We had an agreement remember. No more talking about those rogues again. I held up my end of the bargain so you have to hold up yours as well." Carter was glad that I was happy and he was relieved that James was long gone, so I couldn't talk to him again.

"Yeah, I know. It's just nice to know they're safe and all. They did so much for me and I'm glad I could repay them in a way. Especially Jam-" Cater growled and tightened his hold on me.

"I don't want you to finish that sentence about that rogue. One more word about them, I'll have to find them and lock them back up, all because you couldn't keep your mouth shut." He threatened. I know he would do that, too.

"Okay, okay, I promise I'm done." I sighed and leaned most of my weight on him. I was feeling lazy today and it was nice when Carter carried me the whole way home. We didn't say much but I kept the grin on my face the whole time. I don't think anything could take me out of my exceptionally good mood.

"Do you want to go out to lunch the day after tomorrow? I know a little diner in the middle of town that a pack member owns. I think it would be nice for you to see the town and get to know it better." He smiled and kissed my forehead.

"Yeah, that sounds nice. Maybe we could go to the mall and get some more clothes, too." He nodded.

"I took the day off so we could spend it together. I know we haven't been getting along lately,   but with the upcoming war with the Imperial Pack, I want to spend as much time with you as possible."

"So do I." I sighed. "How many members does the pack have?" I wanted to make sure that Carter's pack was safe and had the upper hand in the war. His pack was the strongest in the US, but my old pack was not far behind.

"We have 322 members now including you, while their pack only has about 260. We are more trained in fighting, both defensively and offensively. Another pack that is close to mine, might help fight against them. I'm not worried about losing, this war is mine." He said showing a glint of his powerful wolf.

"Which pack might come and help?" I asked sounding genuinely curious.

"The Evergreen Pack, Drake Is the Alpha and a very close friend of mine. We've known each other since we were pups." Carter was smiling down at me and I furrowed my brow wondering what I did.

"What are you so giddy about?" He chuckled and kissed my cheek.

"I'm glad to see you curious about the upcoming war. I know that you just got here, but you're asking questions about our pack."

"I'm not updated with the current standings of packs, this is all new information to me." This was true, when I was with James we didn't know anything except they were going to war.

"I don't want you to worry about it though, I can take care of it." I nodded my head.

"I still don't want you to get hurt. People are going to die in this war and I don't know what I'd do if you were one of them."

"Your lack of trust in my fighting skills really insults me." I laughed at him but it quickly died off when he was staring at me intensely. I gave him a funny look, wondering why he was staring. "You're so beautiful when you laugh." I immediately blushed and put my head on his chest, so he couldn't see my red face.
