"Never let your past experiences harm your future. Your past can't be altered, and your future doesn't deserve that punishment."


Before her father had a chance to respond to her pleas, Russell entered the office after a light rap on the door announced his presence. She knew before he had even touched the door that he was outside the room, however, having smelled and sensed him nearby, so she wasn't surprised when he appeared. Looking over her shoulder as much as she could in her current physical state, she met his gaze, a small tangled flurry curling inside of her stomach - one of both nervousness and happiness to see him.

Eve could see his eyes take in her hair color, causing her to look away slightly, unable to return her gaze to his as he took it in. She could feel the uncertainty and worry radiating off of him over the change, and she immediately caught on that he had found out about what had happened - or what had happened without anyone knowing, including herself. Whether or not he realized that even she lacked the information on when and how she had dyed her hair back, she didn't know, but the worry was obvious in the air between them.

"Eve, hey are you ok?"

She tensed a little bit as he put his arm around her shoulders before forcing herself to relax, the pain in her body reacting only slightly to the touch. His question held concern and pity in his voice, the latter something she hated having directed at her with a burning passion. She didn't mind when people worried for her, or were angry - or really any other emotions. Only pity irritated her deep within her soul.

She brushed off the annoyance and turned her gaze to meet his once more.

"Hey what's going on? I heard that you.....aren't doing so well. If there's anything I can do let me know. At least you don't look like a roadie for Evanescence."

"Oops. Was the whole business about you sleep walking supposed to be a secret? My bad. Ah well, but you know what they say, honesty is the best policy."

Allowing a smile to cross her face, Eve shrugged just enough so that it was noticeable, ignoring the sharp pain that shot throughout her in protest, and addressed Eliza with a sickening sweetness.

Kill them with kindness, as her grandmother used to say.

"'Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.' Thomas Jefferson. Perhaps you should take your own advice, and the advice of intellectuals from the past, Eliza," she said sweetly, giving her a bright smile before turning back to Russell. Eliza sputtered, her face growing slightly red in anger, but before she could speak Eve responded to Russell.

"It's nothing that I can't handle, and it's nothing major. And I'll have you know that I like Evanescence, thank you very much," she said with a sassy tone, her finger jabbing lightly against a clear portion of his cheek, but waggled her eyebrows at him to show that she was only joking.

Anyways, Russell came to talk to me, man to man. We've....come to an understanding. I'm willing to be more....merciful for Russell's punishment when we decide what to do with him. But I will be keeping Hank here to guard him. Just to be safe. Russell has agreed. Oh yes. I like him. He'll make a fine son-in-law for you Jason."

Flushing a scarlet red beneath her bandages, Eve turned her attention to Ian and pushed herself to her feet, shakily but in a determined motion, and crossed the small area separating them. When she reached him, her hand moved out and gently took his own, a thin sheen of tears in her pretty eyes.

"Thank you, Ian," she said softly, her lower lip trembling only slightly. "I knew you would make the right decision."

Ian squirmed a bit under her grateful gaze, slowly removing his hand to rub at the back of his head. "It wasn't too large of an issue when he and I spoke. We've made our peace in the decision, and when the time comes, his punishment will be dealt in the way we agreed. It was the least that I could do," he said sheepishly. He turned his attention to Jason. "I'm sure you have much to discuss with the boy, we'll leave you to it, and we'll finish our meeting later." With that, Ian turned and left the room, Eliza smirking a glancing at Eve as she began to follow suit.

"He's a keeper Evie."

And then she was gone, too.

Eve returned to her seat, albeit slowly, and tenderly lowered herself into the cushions. When Russell suddenly took her hand in his, she glanced up at him, an obvious question on her face.

"When you took me in, I didn't tell you the whole story because.....I don't know.....maybe saying it all out loud made it.....too real....maybe I was just being stubborn....I don't know, but here's the full story."

Goosebumps and chills ran across her skin as Russell began speaking, and throughout the entirety of his story, she sat there and listened intently. Tears sprang to her eyes and she squeezed his hand in hers, and when a few tears of his own escaped and trickled down his cheeks, she lifted her free hand to gently brush them away with her thumb.

"Ben...Jack, whatever he wants to be called, I thought he was dead with the rest of my family. So when I caught his scent when we returned, and found him.... Tortured, and imprisoned down stairs....well I wasn't too concerned with the why. That's why I let him out. I didn't know he was gonna kill anyone. I'm sorry for that. But I am not sorry for letting him out. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Because I'm gonna do whatever I have to do to keep the people that I love safe. I don't care what he's done, he is still my family. My responsibility. And I will deal with him when the time comes. ME. Not you. Me. He is still my family, my pack, and I will not allow you, or anyone else to harm him. I will deal with him."

"I appreciate what you, and your family has done for me. If I'm being honest, I wouldn't have taken me in if I was in your position. But I'm not losing more people I love. I will not allow that. I am going to do whatever I need to to keep them safe. No matter what it is. And Jack....Ben is still someone I love, and I will never give up on him. So you do whatever you feel is necessary to protect your pack, your family, and I'm gonna do the same."


"Russell ..." Eve began gently, uncertain where to begin. He cut her off before she could continue, though.

"I'm sorry Eve. I'm sorry that I love you....you deserve a better mate than me. I'm truly sorry that I can't be what you deserve. Now...that you know what I am....will you...please tell me what's wrong...you remember what I said earlier right? Please....I just....I need to know that you're ok....I need to know if there's something I can do. I just....I can't be powerless....if you don't want anything to do with me, I understand....but I just need to know you're alright."

A few moments of utter silence ticked by, the office holding an air that was mixed with shock and uncertainty.

What Russell had said struck her in areas of her emotions that she had yet to realize that she even had. Her inner wolf roiled within her, craning with fury over what he had been forced to endure. The fact that he had gone through events such as those infuriated her, and she felt her free hand clenching in anger. No one deserved to go through something like that, especially not him, and the fact that he had held what had happened to himself for so long struck a chord deep within her.

Another part of her, however, was slightly guilty. Despite everything that had happened to him, she knew without a doubt that the Rogue that used to belong to his families' pack did not deserve to live and would be nearly impossible to rehabilitate. And the risk of attempting to do so was too high. To bring him back around the Sutton Pack wasn't something anyone would agree to allow.

Including herself.

Looking down at her lap, she gently removed her hand from his before she spoke, starting with the last thing he had said.

"I can't tell you what's wrong ... Because I don't know what it is," she said quietly, clenching her hands in her lap. "Something ... Is very wrong, and when you ask me that question ... I'm not able to answer it, because I don't know what the answer is. And not knowing what's wrong ... Scares me."

Inhaling slowly, Eve raised her gaze to Russell's.

"Can I speak with you alone, please?" she asked, rising to her feet slowly. She made her way to the door, giving him the option to follow, and once she was in the hallway she took his hand and led him down the hall and into the large living area, which held several game tables, a few book shelves, a couple of couches, and a large flat screen television with an array of gaming devices hooked up to it. Stopping at one of the couches, she lowered herself down to it and motioned for him to follow suit.

"Russell ..." she began, fidgeting a bit before composing herself and looking up at him.

"I love you. I really do. And telling my father and myself something like that ... Must have been nearly impossible for you. I'm here for you, and I'm honest to God happy that you trust me enough to tell me what happened. No one deserves to go through what you did, least of all you, and I'm so sorry you had to live through that."

Taking his hands between her own, she lifted them and cradled them near her chest.

"But no matter what your past with this Ben man may be, the fact of the matter is that he chose the path that he's on. He could have done and become a lot of things, and he chose to become a hostile, out of control killer, without any actual motive in mind," she said gently. "He has no plans for what he wants to accomplish. At least after your ordeal, you had a reason. You wanted revenge, and no one can blame you for what you did. With Jack ... Ben ... Whatever he calls himself ... He's simply a mindless killer. I understand that he's your only link back to your family, and I can understand why you want to save him. But you need to keep in mind that maybe ... He isn't able to be saved," she told him quietly.

Lowering his hands to the area between their legs, she squeezed his fingers.

"Russell, you need to be prepared for what might happen. If he can't be rehabilitated, than he'll need to be taken care of - whether or not you do it yourself. He's a killer, and we can't put any other people at risk - wolf or human. As much as it pains me to say this, he isn't worth losing what you've worked so hard to accomplish. You've come so far since my parents accepted you into our pack, and I don't want you to risk what you've achieved."

"You have a family here, Russell, whether you believe that or not. You have friends, family, a room with your own bed and belongings," she paused, looking down at her lap.

"And you have me," she said quietly. When she looked at him again, there were tears gathered in her eyes. "Would you really put everything you have at risk for him? Would you really put everyone's lives at risk for him?" she asked, biting her lower lip.

"Would you really put my life at risk for the small chance of rehabilitating him, after everything he's undoubtedly done and could do?"
