It’s after four in the morning and Alexis is doing it again. She tries to hide the fact that she isn’t sleeping, that she is agitated because she is sitting around and not fighting. I don’t know what to do for her.

Lycans don’t constantly fight. We know the best part of war is returning home to our families. It is the reason that  Lycan numbers have continued  to rise while Hunter numbers have fallen. Still she isn’t happy and it’s getting on my nerves.

After the morning ceremony I’ll ask Ronan to spar with her and maybe I’ll send her to my mother when she has battles she needs help with.

Other than that I’m at a loss. What do I do with woman who has known nothing beyond bloodshed and the constant need to stay on her guard? Getting her to talk to me is an exercise of my patience. She still likes to lie to me and tell me she’s okay, or better yet that she is fine. Always fucking fine.

Since sleep is a pipe dream at this point, I may as well stay awake and give my wife something to do with all her energy.
