Chapter 970 Will She Come

Rufus’ POV:

I saw someone p@ssby the window. It was Crystal, holding her kid in her arms.

Was she leaving so soon? Somehow, I felt that she looked a bit sad.

I wanted to chase after her by instinct, but when I heard my mother calling me, I stopped and held back the impulse in my heart.

“Rufus, what’s wrong?” she asked in a concerned tone.

I stared in the direction the she-wolf had left for a long time without saying anything. I didn’t know why, but recently, I felt deeply affected by that she-wolf. As long as she was present, I wouldn’t be able to focus on anything but her. Whenever I felt that she was unhappy, I subconsciously wanted to comfort her. It took every inch of willpower to restrain myself from doing so, and I always failed miserably.

This was the first time I ever cared so much about a she -wolf. I know it was wrong. As a king, I shouldn’t be affected by an insignificant she-wolf, let alone a she- wolf who already had two kids.

But strangely, I found myself unbothered by the fact that she had given birth to another man’s children. Everyone had the right to love and to have children. It was not shameful. On the contrary, I was more bothered by the fact that the jerk ended up abandoning her.

I sighed inwardly. I couldn’t figure out why I cared so much about her anyway. In the end, I concluded that this she-wolf was a dangerous existence, and was very- likely a threat to the royal family. She was ambitious and scheming, which was why I paid attention to her in the first place.

When I came to my senses, I answered, “Mother, you seem to be on good terms with Crystal.”

My mother cast a sidelong glance at me and asked curtly, “Since when did you become so concerned with my social life?”

“It’s not that. I just haven’t seen you so friendly to other noble ladies before,” I explained lightly. Moreover, she even treated Crystal’s two kids as if they were her own grandchildren. She was happier to see them than seeing her own son—me.

My mother then snorted, “Crystal isn’t just some noblewoman. She’s also the Alpha of the border pack. It’s not bad to make friends with her. As for you, you should focus on choosing a wife now.”

I couldn’t retort, because she was right. It was time for me to think about the future of the throne. Crystal was nothing but a distraction.

“Let’s go to the study. See who else needs to be added to the list.” My mother turned around and headed upstairs. She still moved so gracefully.

I followed her to the study. Without checking the lists in my hand, I put them on the desk and said indifferently, “Mom, you can decide on the candidates for me. I’ll be okay with whoever you choose.”

“I plan on inviting the Alphas and Betas from various packs. We’ll ask them to bring their daughters as well,” my mother said slowly, taking a sip from her cup of coffee.

I nodded. Everyone already knew about the reason why we were holding this ball. Otherwise, why else would there be so many noblewomen coming with the Alphas to the imperial capital for the military parade this year? “Although I’ve already checked the lists for you, you’re still the one who’ll make the final call in the end. After all, you’re going to choose your favorite she-wolf among them to be your queen.” My mother was worried, so she kept nagging me again and again. It was as if she was afraid that I’d suddenly change my mind and turn the ball into just another social gathering.

Truth be told, I was extremely tempted to do so, because I didn’t even want to get married. If it wasn’t for the fact that I needed to provide the royal family with an heir, I would’ve preferred to stay mate-less for the rest of my life.

“What’s with the long face?” My mother seemed to have read my mind. Her eyes suddenly became sharp and her body tensed up, as if she was ready to pour her coffee over my head if I said no.

I smiled helplessly. “Don’t worry. I know what I have to do.”

“Good.” My mother relaxed somewhat and smiled at me gently. “Don’t worry. I’ve looked into the backgrounds of every girl on the list. They’re all worthy.”

Suddenly, a thought occurred to me. “Since we’ve invited all the Alphas from every pack, will the border pack’s Alpha also come?”

My mother seemed stunned. She looked at me, wide- eyed, and asked warily, “Do you want her to come?”
