Broken, that's how he feels as Lucien tells him his family is dead, killed by Lucien's own hand while he wasn't there. While he was gone seeing to Hero's business. There is pain in his chest, he doesn't hear anything else Lucien tells him. It is Rose all over again. Only worse, it hurts even more now it's his child, his Alex, both gone.
He tortures himself in those few moments, imagines the scene, his beautiful, amazing Alex, no doubt holding her own against Lord Lucien. Rose Louise...He doesn't even want to think of that, her blood spilled on the walls of his home.
