Alpha Nocturne’s Contracted Mate by A E Randell

Chapter 180 Kill Two Birds with One Stone

After finishing up with Bartholomew, Ann, and Adam made their way back to their room. Adam had some contracts to go over and was determined to conference call Allen and find out exactly what was going on. He had promised Ann that he wouldn’t get too angry with him, but he wanted him to know just how disappointed with him he was. Things could have been so different if he had just acknowledged his bond with Lexi from the start and embraced it. He was an i’**t, and Adam felt that it was about time that someone told him that seriously. Ann still had to finalize details with Eva for Coral’s training and she wanted to at least be able to provide her with a full itinerary for the training schedule so she settled herself on the bed and began drawing up a loose schedule.

Once she was done she grabbed her phone and called her. The sooner it was arranged, the better in her opinion as it seemed that things were going to get incredibly busy if delegates were arriving already.

As she was mulling over the prospect of Alpha Felix and his wife turning up anytime now, Eva picked up the call and startled her with her voice suddenly appearing over the end of the receiver. She had been so deep in thought she had almost forgotten in the moment that she had called her at all.

“Hey, Ann! Oh! I mean, your highness. How are things?” Eva greeted, quickly correcting herself on her social misstep and by the sounds of it, stifling a grin at herself.

“I can hear your smile, Eva,” Ann giggled. “What? Outrageous. How do you even hear a smile anyway? Is that part of your Queenly powers now?” Eva teased.

“It would be a pretty shitty skill if it was. Imagine, the royal power of hearing a smile over a phone… how would that even be useful?” Ann snorted.

“I’m teasing. It’s good to hear from you. I bet you’re swamped with meetings and all the fun that comes along with being a diplomatic figure now.”

“It’s not been too bad honestly so far, but I know things are going to ramp up fairly soon. It’s actually why I’m calling Eva. I need your help.”

“Oh of course! What do you need?” Eva answered without hesitation, her eagerness bringing a thankful smile to Ann’s face.

“Actually, it’s your expertise I need. I want to send Coral to you as soon as possible. I’m going to be swamped with meetings and micromanaging the business and attending all of this is going to be next to impossible.” “Sure thing. Feel free to send her whenever you want. I’ll take her with me on my daily rounds and let her see how it’s done. Has she got any previous experience?”

“No. She’s been an Omega at the Enclave probably for her whole life. I’m fairly sure she has a basic education, but let me know what you think she needs moving forward okay?”

“Of course. Do you want me to book her in for it? There’s a ton of online cla*s*ses she can take in the evenings after she’s finished work so it won’t impact on your schedule too much.”

“I don’t want her to have no time for herself though Eva…” Ann said hesitantly as Eva snorted at the other end of the phone.

“Listen, I’ll tell you now, she is going to have more free time as your a*s*sistant than she ever had as an Omega in that place. Even when their own duties are finished for the day, there are still all of the communal tasks that are expected of them. If anything, she’ll be grateful for having ‘work’ that she can do in comfort and in the privacy of her own room.” Ann nodded as she mulled over words and sighed.

“You’re right, I know. I have plans for changing how things will be done within the Enclave but… now is not ideal to start shifting everything around. It’s just incredibly frustrating, I want to be able to fix everything now, not in a few years.”

“You’ll get there, Ann. You transformed the way things were done in our department, and it has had a knock-on effect throughout the rest of them. Since you’ve become Alpha Queen, the heads of other departments are rushing to emulate you and your business practices. You know, we’ve never had so many hybrids and independents working within the company. It’s a small change, but it’s a start.” Eva answered softly.

Ann’s heart soared with that news. Such a small thing to people in power, but to those who had struggled for so long, it meant that they were one step closer to a better life thanks to a better income.

“Oh! Eva!” Ann gasped suddenly, “I need to come up with a credible solution to an issue that I know I’m going to face in a few weeks. Do you think you can get hold of the Enclave blueprints, or do you need higher clearance to access those?”

Eva chuckled.

“Unfortunately, even those are beyond my capabilities, Ann. You’ll have to speak to someone at the Enclave about that. All the blueprints for the buildings relating to the royals are stored in the vault to ensure security is never compromised.”

Ann swore internally but it couldn’t be helped. It made sense. It would be disastrous for those plans to fall into the hands of any hostile parties. She would just have to bring it up at the council meetings, or perhaps speak to Bartholomew and see if he could help.

“Okay, no problem. I’ll see what I can do. How are the rest of the projects going within our department?” “Without you? Falling apart obviously.” Eva teased sarcastically. “Everything is proceeding as originally planned I have a few more things that I need you to sign off on so if you’re able to drop by tomorrow we could get those out of the way.”

“I wish I could Eva. I’m going to be tied up here for a little while yet at least, can it wait a little?” “No worries! You don’t have to come here. I could drop by tomorrow if you like. Perhaps I could pick Eva up and bring her back with me at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.”

“Sounds perfect. I’ll see you tomorrow Eva.”
