”Mine! ”

Reynard felt his whole body relax, and his pupils returned to its color as he touched the bump. He felt a sudden current pass through his body and all his raging nerves immediately calmed.

He realized what he was doing as he noticed the womans stunned expression. He cleared his throat and immediately composed himself. He got up and buttoned his suit; his eyes lingered on the womans belly.

”Im sorry, I got carried away. ” Reynard smiled to help the woman stay calm. He could smell her fear.

”Yes maam, we are_Wait what? Dennis stopped talking as he realized what just happened. ”Did Reynard just apologize? ”

Reynard apologized to someone? That was unbelievable and Dennis was stunned speechless. He couldn speak for a while as he tried to see If the man standing before him was the proud Reynard hes served all his life.

Was he a counterfeit or an imposter?

”I _ uh_ Reynard tried to continue, but he couldn .

He wasn used to speaking with other people.

”Reynard is stuttering? Dennis stared on with disbelief. He couldn believe that the proud man who could make kings fall and beg to him was this same man. How could such a man become short of words before an ordinary human?

”What is wrong with him today? Dennis asked himself.

How can the president of Ray Internationals act so unruly?

First he ran all the way here; with his lycan. He abandoned the car and ran to the alley just to meet his mate, and now he was demeaning himself, kneeling in front of an unknown woman just to caress her belly.

This is not Reynard at all.

The woman recovered from the shock and instinctively moved backward, protecting her belly.

”Who are you? ”

”Its okay, I won hurt you. ” Reynards baritone voice was mellow. ”For a split seconds there, I lost my rationality seeing your baby bump. ”

”Lost his rationality? Really? ” Dennis blinked his eyes repeatedly. He wanted to be sure of the person in front of him. ”Was this really Reynard? ”

”What do you want from me? ” The woman was unable to trust his words. She was wary of him and kept moving backward.

Seeing the great Reynard at a loss, Dennis decided to come to his rescue.

”Uhm… actually maam, my boss here lost his wife recently to childbirth. So, uh_ seeing your baby bump seemed to have reminded him of them, and he probably mistook you for his…

Dennis swallowed the rest of his words, as soon as he got Reynards deadly glare.

”Oh, Is that so? ” The woman relaxed a bit and her gaze travelled from Reynard to Dennis as if trying to detect if they were being truthful.

Seeing Reynards hollow face, the woman felt sorry for him. ”You must miss them a lot, right? ”

Reynard glared sharply at Dennis for giving such a lame excuse, then his eyes settled on the womans belly, and he relaxed.

”I am so sorry for your loss, ” The woman looked pitifully at Reynard. I understand how you must feel because I can imagine what I would do if l suddenly lose her. ” The woman gestured at her belly with a smile dancing on her face.

She patted her belly gently proudly and smiled again. ”She is my life. ”

”And She is my Mate! ” Reynard let out a low growl as the woman rubbed her belly.

He didn like the way the woman was touching his mate with so much love in her eyes.

”Was he jealous? Of his Mates mother? ” Dennis wondered as he heard Reynards growl. He shook his head but decided not to speak. Who knows what trouble hed bring upon himself if he speaks further.

”Where do you stay? So l can drop you off? ” Reynard wanted to know where the woman stays, so he could keep an eye on her. He has waited too long to find his mate, now he can stay away.

Also, he knew that It was only a matter of time before his enemies discovers her existence and plan to use her against him. She was after all the only one born on earth that could summon a weapon strong enough to kill him.

”Oh, No_ don bother, I live just around the corner, my house is really close, I don need a ride. ” The woman politely declined his offer.

Reynard signaled Dennis who immediately strode forward and took the bags the woman was holding.

”Then let me walk you home. ” He offered.

The woman didn want to seem like she was rejecting his kindness for the second time, so she agreed.

”Okay. ”

Anyone could tell from the way Reynard carried himself that he was royalty. Anyone could tell that he was someone from a high status and Freya wouldn want to offend someone like that.

When the arrived at the shabby neighborhood, Dennis grimaced. ”Is this where you live? ”

”Yes, ” She nodded.

The woman seemed proud of her neighborhood.

”Lets go. ” Reynard switched the topic before Dennis could ask further questions. He knew that the woman wouldn like to discuss where she live and why she chose to live there.

He didn want to offend his mates mother on the same day they met.

Dennis wasn satisfied. He wanted to ask further questions. However, he couldn dare. Reynard already sent him a message through the mind link.

”How can someone be proud to live in the slums? ” Dennis grumbled.

Going farther into the neighborhood was already a great compromise on Reynards side. He was a clean freak and wouldn step into a place like this even on his deathbed. However, he came and even went inside the small house.

He even sat down!

”Wow! Dennis gasped as he counted the changes he noticed in Reynard since he met his mate.

The woman was really grateful for their help, she was smiling happily as she welcomed them into her home.

”You are such kind gentlemen. Thank You so much Mr. _ ” she raised her brow in askance as she looked at Reynard as if silently asking for his name.

”Reynard. ” His response was as short and precise.

The woman glanced towards Dennis as if asking for his name too.

Dennis is usually very smug when it comes to his name. He loved his name so much that he had once said that he would name every male child In his entire generation after himself.

”Dennis. ” He replied proudly.

”Mr. Reynard, Mr. Dennis. It was nice meeting you, I am Freya, and thank you both for your help. ”

”Its okay, Freya, you are welcome. ” Dennis replied.

”Yes, its okay. ” Reynard added.

”Really. You don understand. ” Freya wanted to explain why its such a big deal. ”No one renders help in this part of the world. So, I really appreciate your help today.

”It was an honor to serve. ” Dennis chuckled. His eyes searched the house, and he didn see anyone else aside Freya. ”Freya, I don see your husband around. Does he stay here or do you stay alone? ”

”Uhm … My husband is_ not around. ”

”Oh, I see. ” Reynard caught on her reluctance and shot Dennis another look of Stop being nosy then he gave him a signal.

No one understands Reynard better than Dennis.

Dennis laughed inwardly seeing the look on Reynards face. He knew that the man was asking for his help

Reynard wants access to come back. He wanted to stay close to his mate after he finally found her. He wants to be able to visit her frequently.

However, he only just met her today, and he couldn just kidnap Freya and keep her by his side just because he wanted his mate. Reynard knew he had to take it slow.

He has to make Freya trust him enough to move in with him before the arrival of his little mate.

Reynard knew that Freya would refuse if he offered to gift her a new house. That might even make her fear him, since the woman seem to like it there in the slums.

He couldn take her against her will, so the baby doesn get affected. He couldn insist on taking her away either because that would sound preposterous, after all they only just met.

Furthermore, he knew she wouldn agree to his demands, especially because they weren acquainted. Likewise, he wouldn want to scare her away by being domineering, neither could he compel her with his power because he didn know the effect that would have on the baby.

He was sending Dennis a message through the link. He wanted him to raise the topic before Freya, so that they could come by more often.

Not that Reynard needed her permission to come back, He only needs to pass the order, and she would be brought to him. After all, he was Reynard, The Supreme King of the supernatural creatures and CEO and President of Ray Internationals.

Reynard cared too much about his unborn mate and wouldn want to cause unnecessary trouble that could negatively affect her.

”Ahem_ ” Dennis cleared his throat. ”Freya, Mr. Reynard seemed to have taken a likeness to your unborn child and I also_ ”

Dennis stopped his words as he heard Reynards low growl. Dennis frowned and sent him a message through the link. ”I only said that to buy us some entry into the house. ”

”You can say anything else about yourself. You are not allowed to like her. ”

”Alright, ” Dennis groaned.

Reynard was being so possessive of his mate even though she hasn been born. What will he do when she finally arrives.

”Love sick! ” Dennis hissed. He didn dare to say that loud. He turned to Freya and decided to try something else to get them entry into Freyas home.

”Since, Mr. Reynard has taken a liking to your baby. He would love it if we could always come by to say hi whenever we are around. ”

”Is that okay with you? Reynard added before Dennis could go on blurting his rubbish.

”Sure, you are welcome to visit anytime. ” Freya was happy to have such gentlemen around her. ”It will be an honor to have you visit us. ”

Dennis shook his head and smiled. If only this woman knew who the baby In her womb was. ”No Freya, the honor and pleasure is ours. ”
