Accidental Alpha #15
After filling out forms for the police and calling his insurance company it didn’t take much effort to finagle a dinner invitation from his mother.
“Is it all right if I bring a friend?” he asked her on the phone.
“Of course, dear I’d love to meet your friend.” She said in a delighted tone. “Come early and we can chat.”
“Oh I’d love to have a chat with you and father.” Stanley smiled as he hung up the phone.
“Is it just me or are you enjoying this too much?” Fenris asked.
“It’s you. After the day I had, I’m enjoying this just right.”
“Come on Fenris, let’s go have dinner with the parents.”
“Are you an only child?” Fenris asked.
Stanley nodded. “After they adopted me my mother said I was enough.”
“Hmmm,” Fenris said. “I’m thinking your mother is a wise woman.”
Stanley hooked an arm through Fenris and walked him out of the mess that was his place.
The drive to his parents’ house only took a few minutes but he could feel Fenris’ nerves ratcheting up as they pulled through the mansion gates. “Relax, hon, they aren’t monsters, well at least mom isn’t I make no promises about a guy you call the Overseer. What does that mean anyway?”
Fenris shrugged. “You’ll get more information talking to your dad.”
Stanley smirked. “Yeah, he’s a fount of information.”
Laughter filled the vehicle. “I don’t know all the details but there is one per big city. They are born hunters who have the natural skills to kill rapid wolves.”
“So are they like in charge of you.” Stanley pulled up and parked in front of the house as he waited for Fenris’ response.
“No! They are sort of like supernatural cops. They can’t kill unless there are documented problems. That attack by Sebastian will be sent to the proper authorities. Though he’ll probably only be fined it will go against other behavior issues.”
“Good.” Stanley turned off the engine. “Let’s go have dinner.”
The door opened as they approached. Stanley leaned forward and kissed the housekeeper on the cheek. “Evening LeeAnn.”
“Stanley.” The housekeeper’s dark eyes sparkled as she looked Fenris over. “Your mother said you were bringing a friend.”
“This is Fenris.” He wrapped an arm around the other man and brought him forward. “Fenris this is LeeAnn. She’s worked for the family since I was a little boy.”
“Nice to meet you.” Fenris took one careworn hand and kissed the back of her fingers. “You’ve done an excellent job helping to raise Stanley.”
LeeAnn blushed. “I’ve always thought so. Come in you two. Your father brought a friend also.”
Fenris’ head snapped up, his nose twitching. “Sebastion,” he growled.
“Yes,” LeeAnn said with a smile. “That’s his name.”
Stanley felt his stomach flip. “This should be interesting. Let’s go say hello to mother first.”
“There he is,” his father’s voice boomed across the foyer. Standing next to him was a striking blond. Six foot tall with rippling muscles. The smug expression on his face sent Stanley’s blood boiling. “Stanley this is Sebastian.”
“Just the man I wanted to meet,” Stanley said. Marching over to blond, he reared back and slammed his fist into Sebastian’s face.
Sebastian’s eyes rolled to the back of his head and he toppled over with a satisfying thud.
Stanley turned to his father. “Any more surprises tonight?”
To give him credit his father looked calmly at his unconscious guest before turning back to Stanley. “No I think that’s about it.”
