Hayden and his team moved through the snow silently. Their newest target was a rouge by the name of Eden. He was smart, smarter than any rouge Hayden had ever encountered before. He was also different, he didn't just out their kind carelessly with his actions nor did he attack any human or supernatural he happened to cross paths with. Eden has been kidnapping them, torturing them and then leaving their bodies for us to find. It was sickening how he'd string his victims up like they were nothing more than rag dolls.

Most rouges had simply gone mad, whether the madness be caused from losing a mate or even just the amount of time they lived he wasn't sure. He didn't much care, nor did he pity them. He had a duty to his race, his family to protect them and eliminate the threat. He was sure they were closing in on Eden, his scent was stronger and Hayden could hear talking up ahead.

Once Hayden seen a house come into view he lifted his hand, signaling for his team to stop. They obeyed, crouching down in the snow. They'd wait until they had a better view before they moved in on him. They needed to know if he had any more hostages. Eden was never without a new victim, over the past six months Hayden has had his best friend, also his third in command Chance to analyze Eden's behavior. He hoped that if they understood him just a bit better they'd be able to create a trap to finally get him. But all they've learned is, when he disposes of his dead victim he's not without another.

Hayden suppressed a growl when he heard a woman scream from the distance. He knew that the woman was wounded badly, it was just what Eden did. Hayden felt everyone tense when we seen a man exit the house. The man seemed to know they were there which wasn't possible. The wind was in their favor blowing to them, rather than towards Eden. But, regardless Eden looked out towards where Hayden and his men were crouching.

Alpha, what do you want us to do? Hayden heard his Thirds voice in his head. He wanted to wait a bit longer but he couldn't risk the woman dying.

Move! Hayden ordered with a growl, his team didn't hesitate. They shifted and ran out from the surrounding woods. Eden also shifted and took off, leaving whatever woman he had in the house and all of what he brought behind. His only thought to flee from the pack of wolves on his tail. What they didn't realize is that this was all planned out. Hayden didn't hesitate to run after Eden, his strong jaws snapped and snarled as he gave chase.

Chance get the woman out of the house and see to her! Hayden ordered through the link, seconds later an explosion went off and the force of it threw him face first into the ground. He groaned which came out as a growl. He was dizzy for a moment, but when his vision cleared he noted that Eden had yet again escaped. Hayden stood and turned back to see what had happened when he seen the house in flames. His immediate thought was he'd just send Chance inside. He ran back to the building, his mind overcome with guilt. He'd ordered his third to go inside. He was the one responsible. Shifting back into his human self, Hayden called out loudly "Anyone have eyes on Chance?!"

When he didn't get an immediate response he feared the worst, that Chance had gone inside the house and was nothing more than ash now, until he heard his Beta, Jonas yell out. "Over here! He's here!" Ace's voice was urgent, concerned. Hayden ran over to Jonas and seen that Chance was literally smoking.

"Al...pha" Chance choked out, he was gasping for air but wasn't getting any. Chance knew he was dying, knew that he had to tell Hayden so he opened his link only to Hayden and began his desperate plea. Alpha please, we know I'm dying and that I'm not going to make it off this field alive. I need you to help her. Please, help her.... Chance began to cough, Hayden was confused on who he was supposed to help, was he delirious from the blast? The woman was dead, and nothing he could do would bring her back. He grimanced thinking about yet another lost life.

Who am I helping Chance? The house is in flames, there's no way that she survived the blast or the smoke.. Hayden said with certainty.

Chance frowned, Not her Hayden.. My daughter... My daughter you have to help my daughter. She's human at least for now. She knows nothing about us but she's almost upon her transition its only a couple days away. She'll need someone to guide her, to help protect her against other unwanted males. She'll be vulnerable to attack once they find out about her. I meant to go to her, but-. Chance trailed off but Hayden understood. He was shocked beyond belief when Chance had first mentioned having a daughter but quickly hid it and listened to what Chance had to say. He had a responsibility to Chance to look after his daughter.

I'll watch over her Chance, whats her name and where does she live? Hayden asked, hoping that Chance would be able to at least get out that much. He could hear Chance's heart beat slowing his breathing more shallow. Hayden had to clench his jaw to keep his mask of unemotional Alpha up.

Her name is Brooke Lawrence, she lives in the city... An apartment complex called 'Northside Apartments' apartment number 3B. She's beautiful, just as beautiful as her mother was when I first seen her. Make sure she knows that I love her very much... I wouldn't have left if I didn't think it was safer this way.. I'm just sad I'll never.. get to...tel-. Chance's heart suddenly stopped and he stopped breathing, Ace tried CPR but it didn't work. We all mourned the loss of Chance. And Hayden knew there was nothing sadder than losing a member of the pack. His family would cry over his death, but Hayden stayed stoic. Never letting the others see his own upset, because right now he had so much that he needed to do and the first priorities on his list was to find Brooke and kill Eden.
