My Hockey Alpha Chapter 241

My Hockey Alpha by Eve Above Story

My Hockey Alpha Chapter 241-Zombieland Nina Enzo and I walked for a while longer after that. The rain only kept getting heavier, making me wish that I had thought to bring some sort of protection against getting soaked, but as the tall pointed roofs of the mansion eventually came into view over the treetops I realized that we might not be out in the elements for much longer… Hopefully.

We quickly got off the road when we saw the mansion come into view, and decided to see if there was another way in this time since there was a possibility that Selena would expect us to come out of the spot we had been in before.

However, as we made our way through the woods and we could eventually see the full view of the mansion, Enzo and I quickly realized that there was no way to get in; even the side entrance that we used before was under heavy guard.

There were twice as many guards now, and all of them were heavily armed and on high alert. If it weren’t for the rain and the rapidly darkening sky, I was certain that they would have seen us.

“Shit,” Enzo whispered as we crouched behind some bushes and peered through the branches at the dozens of guards patrolling the entire perimeter of the mansion. “There’s no way in.” I bit my lip as I wondered what we should do. Enzo was right; there was no way in. The security, after our last mission, was airtight.

We waited for a long time, watching to see what would happen. Maybe there would be a slight break between the guards’ shifts like last time; even if it was only a few seconds, it would be better than nothing. But, much to my dismay, the guards eventually changed shifts without any gap. The new shift of guards came out before the other guards ever left, leaving us with absolutely no window to run up to the side of the mansion. I was also fairly certain that the inside of the mansion was crawling with guards as well.

Finally, Enzo turned to look at me with a deep and solemn frown on his face.

“I don’t see a way that we can get in without being seen,” he said, sounding apologetic. “Either we’ll have to go home and give them some time to relax their security before we come back, or…” “Or we’ll have to surrender,” I said, never breaking my gaze from the mansion.

“We could try that,” Enzo replied quietly. “There is a slight chance that they have orders to bring us in, which would at least get us close to Selena. But they’d likely take all of our stuff, and…” His voice faded. He seemed as though he was going to say something, but decided against it. I wasn’t carrying anything of any real value or use, as I knew that conventional weapons would only prove to be useless against Selena. My mind wandered back, then, to whatever it was that Matt secretly stuck in Enzo’s hand before we buried Richard. Was whatever that was somehow related?

I opened my mouth to ask, but before I could, Enzo looked back at the mansion and made another point.

“They could have orders to kill us on sight,” he said, pointing at their guns.

I nodded. Of course, that was the most likely outcome. But I knew that they would only shoot Enzo, and not me. Selena would never kill me; not when she was well aware that my death would result in her own.

For a long time, I sat there in silence and wondered what to do. The mansion was located in the middle of a rather large stretch of open land, meaning that there was no way to get up to the building without being seen. The guards seemed to stretch all the way around the perimeter of the mansion, so we wouldn’t be able to circle around and go in through the back.

Maybe Enzo was right. Maybe we would have to wait and come back when they relaxed their security. Either that, or we would have to wait for Selena to come to us, assuming she hadn’t given up on trying to make Enzo her mate.

However, as I crouched behind the bushes and chewed my lip nervously, I suddenly had another idea.

It wasn’t so much an idea as it was a feeling. It was the same instinctual feeling that I had when I felt the rogues coming earlier. It was the same feeling that I had when I originally went through the portal, and felt as though I just suddenly knew what had to be done. Whatever this feeling was… It was just like that.

When I suddenly stood, Enzo’s eyes widened and his hand shot out to grab my arm.

“Nina! What are you doing?!” he hissed.

“Just trust me,” I whispered. Although, if I was being honest, I didn’t even feel as though I could trust myself at that moment. For some reason, I felt as though I had to put my trust into something intangible, some unknown force that I still didn’t understand.

I felt something surge through me. A lightning bolt flashed in the distant sky, and at the same time it felt as though another lightning bolt flashed through me, giving me power. I didn’t know what was happening as I slowly stepped out from behind the bushes, ignoring Enzo’s pleas for me to come back.

The guards began to notice my presence. I heard them shouting at each other, and several of them raised their guns. But I kept going.

Something happened inside of me at that point. I couldn’t explain it, but I knew that all I had to do was focus my energy, and so I did.

I focused as hard as I could, imagining that there was a ball of light inside of me, and I imagined that I could control that light.

Several of the guards ran closer, their guns raised and trained on me.

“Put your hands up!” one of them yelled.

“Nina!” Enzo shouted. He jumped out from behind the bush and ran after me, causing the guards to train their guns on him next as he put himself between me and the guards with his arms outstretched.

“Get down! We’ll shoot!” another guard yelled.

Meanwhile, I kept focusing my energy. I squeezed my eyes shut, blocking out the guards’ commands. And then… Silence.

I opened my eyes.

The guards had lowered their guns, and were now staring at us with blank, wide-eyed expressions. One of them even dropped his gun, as though his hands didn’t even work anymore. Behind them, the other guards that had been coming after us had also stopped in their tracks, and stood in the same dumbfounded positions. Their bodies looked slack, like puppets with no puppet master.

Enzo turned to face me, his eyes wide.

“What did you do?” I shrugged and shook my head at the same time, just as shocked as he was. “I… I don’t know,” I said. I walked up to one of the guards and waved my hand in front of his face. He blinked, but that was it.

Somehow, I managed to daze all of the guards at once. There were at least thirty spread across the front lawn to the mansion, and all of them looked equally as out of it. I didn’t know how I did it, or how long it would last.

But I did know one thing: I had just given us a chance to get inside of the mansion.

And as we ran across the lawn, pushing our legs to carry us as fast as we could possibly go, I only hoped that I didn’t just prematurely give away our location to Selena.
