Peering into the darkness, I could see six red eyes staring at me. I took a couple steps closer to the red eyes to see it more clearly leaning my head closer to them.
“Hello?” I said speaking into the darkness. One of them- a tall dark figure- lunged out at me as I stumbled backwards trying to keep my balance. As soon as my eyes adjusted, I gasped. He was the most gorgeous guy I’d ever seen. He had dark brow, wildly cut hair the hung in his face covering his red eyes. He wore white t-shirt with a jet-black pull over and his hood pulled over his head; some dark blue jeans and faded black and torn converse. The fact that he was totally and completely gorgeous took away the fact he wore raggedy clothing. I noticed that he was staring at me as if I was the most beautiful thing on earth even though I was wearing my pajamas. Then he smiled at me and I blushed returning his smile. Our gazes met each other’s eyes and we stared at each other adoringly. My body was completely frozen, I couldn't move.
He spoke,” My name is Élan Mason DeMarrow Knight, what is your name?”
I just stared at him.
He cocked his head side ways, “Will you tell me?”
I nodded again, “My name is M-Marie Hathaway.”
He shook his head at me in dismay and smirked at me, “You’re lying to me. That is not your full name. Now I’m going to give one more chance to tell me the truth. What is your name?”
He smirked at me and shook his head again. He disappeared and then he was in front of me with his hands on my throat, slowly tracing my vain. “I know your one of the Luccas’. You can’t hide it from me, one of the most powerful vampires of our time,” he leaned closer to me. I could feel his cool breath against my skin as he whispered in my ear, “Rosalind. Tell me, what is your name?”
“Excellent.” He said smiling at me. He lowered his mouth towards my neck and I could feel a sharp pain as I let out a blood-curdling scream. I could faintly hear my mom’s voice in the background.
“Marie! Marie, wake up!” she yelled shaking me.
I gasped opening my eyes. I was in my bedroom, sweating. I looked at my clock; it’s only seven-thirty. I sighed heavily and looked at my mom. She looked at me with sad; worried eyes wiping my face and hugged me. I hugged her too. “Did you have the nightmare again?” I nodded. She rubbed my back wiping hair away from my forehead where it stuck from the sweat and kissed it. “Don’t worry it’ll all be over soon.” I looked at her shaking my head a little. She’s been telling me the same thing since I was little. Somehow, I find it hard to believe. My dreams always felt so real. I could feel those red eyes staring into my soul. He was the most gorgeous guy I’d ever seen, somewhat beautiful actually. Something about him always seemed so familiar. Sometimes, if my mom didn’t wake me up, when he bit me, it felt pleasureful. Once I had that dream and he bit me, I pulled him closer, moaning and begging him to keep biting me. I wanted him to suck my blood. I enjoyed it until my mom woke me up. I don’t understand why I have these dreams or these pleasures or why I know I know him. I just know they’re there. I just wish my mom would help me to understand, but every time I ask her, she says when you’re older. I’m turning sixteen in a couple of months; she’ll have to tell then. I got out of my bed looking out my window.
My mom sighed, “Honey, I promise you I’ll tell you about your dreams soon, ok?”
I jumped at the sound of Demitri’s voice, “Don’t do that. You scared me half to death.”
He smiled at me, “Sorry, I could help myself. So, you still up for going to the movies after school?”
I sighed, “You know how mom and dad feel about us hanging out too much. They think its bad for me.”
“I don’t care what they said, you’re my little sister and I want to hang out with you today. So, are you still up for it or not?” he asked.
My shoulders slumped and I sighed. “Yes…but on one condition. You have to buy everything this time, deal?” I held out my hand towards him and he shook it.
“Deal.” He said smiling at me.
The bus pulled up from around the corner and stopped. Jan the bus driver opened the doors. As we boarded the bus, I heard someone calling after the bus.
“Wait! Don’t leave!” they shouted.
“Can I help you?” he said in a snarky tone.
The kid looked at him shocked. “Um…no. actually I couldn’t help but your notice your little friend staring at me before I got on the bus.” he said calmly.
i gasped. He sounded just like the guy from my dreams.
“Is that so?” Demitri looked back at me and I blushed.
I nodded to Demitri letting him know it was ok for the guy to sit here.
“Okay, my sister said you can sit here, but you have to sit over there by yourself.” he pointed towards the seat next to us.
“Yea I am. Actually I had no clue that they had a Cambridge here.”
“Oh, I see. I’m from Taiga.”
“Taiga? That’s far from here. What are you doing living in the forest.”
He shrugged. “My family likes to live I quiet places. You know, away from all the city people. I mean I like the city and all but sometimes, it can get a little crowded. It’s just nice to get away for awhile.”
He stretched and yawned. He scooted over to his window and rested his head on it falling asleep.
I yawned too leaning on Demitri.
“You tired?” he asked me.
I nodded. Demitri put his arm around me as I lay on his chest, closing my eyes and falling into a deep sleep.
“Marie, Wake up! Its ok, your fine. I’m with you.” Demitri said trying to sound calm.
I was clutching his shirt like a scared child.
“It felt so real…” I said as my voice cracked.
I heard Mason speak up, “Is she ok?” he asked worried.
“She’s fine.” Demitri snapped.
I turned to see Mason with a worried look on his face. I hid my face in Demitri’s chest too scared to look back up at Mason. “Just go away. Please, just go.” I said-my voice barely a whisper.
He sighed. “Fine, but I have one question for you to answer first.”
I nodded solemnly.
“Why doesn’t anyone ever sit back here with you?” he asked curiously.
“I always have nightmares! Now goodbye!” I shouted and stomped off the bus with Demitri trailing behind me. Mason trailed along behind us. I was beginning to get irritated with this guy but also intrigued. I spun
“I just wanted to know what classes you have.”
I sighed. “P.E., Geography, Math and English.”
“Interesting,” he mused, “so do I. Are your classes in that specific order?”
“Guess I’ll be seeing you around then.”
He gave me one last smile and headed towards the school. I wonder why he is always bugging me. Maybe he’s one of those im-gonna-stalk-you kind of guys. Never mind that. I have enough to worry about by myself.
“Well isn’t this just great.” I muttered to myself.
“What is it Marie?” Demitri asked trying not to sound worried.
“He’s the one I saw in my dreams.” I said.
He froze. “A-Are you sure?”
I nodded and he quickly pulled out his phone and dialed a number
It was towards the end of the end of the day and Mason was still staring at me. He'd been sitting next to me in almost every class,staring at me. I looked over at him from the corner of my eye and saw him staring at me;still. i tried to concentrate on the teachers boring lecture but i couldn't. I turned towards him staring into his eyes; like i was under his spell. we kept gazing into each others eyes. Demitri tapped my shoulder but i ignored him still gazing into Mason's eyes. They were like dirty mud pools of blood except a lot more beautiful. I raised my hand- still gazing at mason.
"Yes miss Hathaway?" said Ms.Jackson.
"Can i go to the bathroom?" I asked dazed.
I got up and walk from the classroom with mason following behind me.
"Your so beautiful." he told me as he pinned me against the lockers.
His face was so close to mine i could feel his cool breath on my neck. My heart raced with him so close to me. Our bodies were pressed closely together; he leaned closer and kissed me passionately. I kissed him back as his arms wrapped around my waist. My arms went up around his neck as we kissed more intensely now. I felt his hand go up the back of my shirt and just as he was about to take it off, I heard Demitri come around the corner. He pulled Mason back so he was facing him and then punched him in the face. I blinked a couple of times not knowing exactly what had just happened.
"What happened?" I asked dazed
Demtri was breathing hard and talking in between breaths. "You.. were.. kissing...him.."
I gasped as I stared at mason lying on the floor.
Mason groaned."What'd you do that for Demitri?"
Demitri glared down at Mason."You were kissing my sister..."
Mason looked confused and got up. "I mean your sister is hot and all, but on my first day? Kissing the hottest girl? No way! She's way out of my league."
I wanted to tell him it was the other way around but i kept quiet. I looked over at demitri to see him him glowering at Mason. Eventually mason got the hint.
"Okay, okay. I get it, you want me to leave? I will." Mason started to walk away.
I grabbed his arm."Wait, you have to stay with us until we figured out what just happened and who you really are, got it?"
He smiled and nodded kissing my cheek.
"Now that's a kiss i actually had control over." he smiled at me once more and left without another word. When he was out of sight Demitri started shouting at me.
"Are just gonna let him do that when ever he wants or what?!"
I sighed."sorry, i got a little...distracted." I looked down shyly still thinking about when Mason kissed me.
Demitri sighed. "Come on. We need to get back to class." he grabbed my hand as we started to walk back slowly.
"Demitri, what's gotten into you? You always used to be so nice and calm and now your just angry all the time."
He stopped and looked at me grabbing me by the shoulders. "It's this guy. I can't stand him being like this with you.."
His shoulders slumped a he looked away.
I turned his head towards me. "look at me."
He stared into my eyes.
"No one will ever replace you as my brother. understand?"
" I've known you my whole life and haven't hurt you or left your side once. You've gotta trust me. I'm a big girl and I can handle myself. You know what i can do. Remember when i beat up those kids for making fun of you?"
He nodded and chuckled.
When we were little people used to make fun of him and call him white boy even though he was mostly black. He always looked lighter than me.
"That's one reason why i love you so much. You're not afraid to stand up to bullies."
I smiled and hugged him tightly and grabbed his hand and kissed his cheek.
"I love you big brother." I smiled as we walked back to our classroom.
We stood out side waiting for mason to show. I tapped my foot impatiently. Then i thought to myself, there has to be something between us already for us to do something like that. After all he has been in a lot of my nightmares and then suddenly he appears in my life out of nowhere? Somehow I feel like my whole family is hiding something from me; something so bad they don't want me to know. But why would they want to hide anything from me? I jumped when I felt someone's arms around my waist.
He chuckled, "Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you."
I looked at his beautiful face smiling at me. I quickly looked away from him blushing. I moved his arms from around my waist.
"Its fine. now let's go." I told them.
Demitri was glaring at Mason. I elbowed his side and he stopped instantly. We boarded the bus as the bus driver pulled away from the school.
I opened the door to my house, calling out to my mom.
"Mom I'm home and I brought Demitri with me!" she came rushing out of the kitchen and hugged Demitri tightly or so she thought.
"Oh, i've missed you so much! You've gotten taller haven't you?"
Demitri stared at her from over my head."Uh...I'm right here mom." he said waving at her.
Mason chuckled. "Pleased to meet you Mrs.Hathaway. I'm mason."he said bowing.
My mom blushed. "Oh, i'm sorry! And no need to be so formal." she went over to Demitri and hugged him. "Well, come come. Sit, sit. We have a lot to talk about."
Mason sat next to me and Demitri on my other side.
"Indeed we do Mrs.Hathaway." Mason said.
She smiled kindly at Mason. "So, are you new here Mason?"
"Yes, actually I come from a place far away from here. It's and island far off the coast of Japan and it's the most beautiful place ever. When trees bloom in spring you can see the cherry blossoms. I'm actually a prince. We have a large castle on top of a hill. The grass is so green it looks like a beautifully green painted ocean and the waters there are so clear you can see straight to the bottom of the ocean." he sighed. "Oh how i miss my homeland along with my people of course."
I looked at him blankly not able to speak. "Your a p-prince?" I managed to stutter.
"Then what are you doing all the way out here in Canada?"
"I wanted to get away for awhile-- to see the world. And iI trust that you guys won't tell a single soul at school of my true identity. If i'm found out i wont be able to travel anymore and my parents will lock me in room for all eternity. Do you understand?"
"I don't know, you being gone for all eternity sounds pretty good to me."Demitri retorted.
I glared at him and nodded to Mason. "Cross our hearts. So, what's this island called?"
He smirked taking my chin in his hand. "That my fare maiden is something, that I simply can not tell you." he mused. "I hope you will forgive me."
I nodded slowly as he let go of my chin and turned away staring out the window. He seemed very...odd. One minute he was a total flirt, the next he was mysterious.
"So mason, isn't there something you want to tell my mother?" Demitri said.
"Oh, I almost forgot. I share a long kiss with your daughter. But it wasn't of free will." he said calmly and turned around.
"Oh...I see..." she said. "Well...why did you?"
"It is something I can not explain. I just felt a very strong attraction towards her. You do understand how that feels don't you? With someone of your opposite sex of course."
She nodded. "Um...Marie? Why don't you take Mason to your room while i talk to Demitri...alone."
Demitri gave her a Are-sure-thats-a-good-idea kind of look.
She shook her slightly.
"Okay." I grabbed Mason's hand and took him upstairs with me to my room. I lay on my bed while he sat on the edge of my bed. I stared at the ceiling. "So, what do you think they're talking about?"
"Us..."he said staring out my window blankly.
I sat up and pulled him close to me. "What's wrong?" I said sadly.
"I-I think...that I've fallen love with you..." he said--his voice barely a whisper.
I brushed his hair out his face and kissed and forehead looking into his eyes. "And tell me, how is it a bad thing?"
"My parents told me not to fall in love with anyone." he stared intently into my eyes and then I felt as if something just exploded inside of me--but a good feeling of course. He turned towards me kissing me and I kissed him back. The kiss intensified. My arms wrapped around neck as his hands were entangled in my hair. My shirt was ripped off and my bra had a tear in it revealing part of my breast. he looked at me kissing my stomache moving from my breast to my neck. ripped off his shirt revealing his broad chest which had a weird tattoo on it. I didnt care. He then moved back down to my breast kissing it. I could hear a knock on the door. We both knew it was my mother and Demitri, but they couldnt get in because I locked the door. He tore off my pants which now lay tatterd on the floor. Now in only my bra and underwear we kissed again with more passion now. We kept kissing ; his hand was on my breast when the door burst open. My mom and Demitri stood in the room wide-eyed. I quickly sat up blinking many times just as Mason lay there on top of me still touching my breast. I pushed him off and quickly hid under the covers, but it was too late because they'd already seen me.
"I-I...I dont know what came over me.."Mason stumbled over his words and quickly got off the bed standing next to it as Ihid.
"I'm sorry..." was I all I could manage to say.
My mother sighed, "Mason sit down."
He shook his head."I'd rather not."
"Very well then. But I must tell you something. As Demitri and I already know, are vampires. Mason is a half wolf half vampire. We come from a place called Valkeria where amongst us only lives vampires. Mason and his family are from Masteria where vampires want to live peacefully with the wolves. Our families have been fighting for centuries and despise each other. But 15 years ago a curse was put upon Rosalind Marie Hathaway Delucca." she looked at me and continued." The curse was put upon you by the Masterian king and queen which turned you human. But what they didnt know was that there was a catch. If a Masterian prince is to fall for the Valkerian princess the curse shall be broken. Now tell me something Elan, have you fallen for my daughter?"
He nodded slowly.
It was all starting to come back to me now. I am a princess of Valkeria who once despised any wolf or half breed. but i now have fallen for one; Elan the prince of Masteria. I jumped of my bed kissing Elan. "I love you."
He smiled."I love you too."
Demitri pried us apart throwing some clothes at me. I quickly put them on.
"Theres just one problem." Demitri said." Now that they have confessed their love to each other there will be war between our people. This wasnt supposed to happen untill her birthday on the night of the full moon."
I sighed."I wonder if there will ever be peace between our people."
"Oh and I forgot to tell you two that father went back to Valkeria to protect our people from the war to come."
We all just sat there thinking of tomorrow.
i'll post more soon
the more ppl who comment the more i'll post so get more ppl :D
4th chapter done~! :)
I awoke to the smell of blood. Quickly hopping out of bed, I ran downstairs to see my mother with a human in the house. “Mother? What’s going on?” I asked, scared.
She turned and smiled at me with her blood-stained lips. “Its our breakfast sweetheart. You need to have blood if you want to stay alive.”
I grabbed the human practically throwing him on the lawn. “Tell no one and never come back!” I yelled as it ran off. Turning back to my mother, I threw my arms up in the air shouting. “Mother! You know we only feed off of other vampires.”
I patted her shoulder. “It’s ok mother. I can feed off of Mason. Does that sound good?”
She nodded and walked off towards her room.I ran to Mason’s house banging on his door. I could hear him coming to the door as he opened it. “Would you mind if I-”
He cut me off. “Feed off of me?”
I nodded putting my head down.
Stepping aside he motioned for me to come in. “Come on in.”
His decision shocked me a little. Why’d he agree to it so quickly? Didn’t he know I could kill him? I walked into his house. It was nothing fancy. It actually looked like a normal everyday home. Except the house had more vibrant colors. “Your parents aren’t here?”“They were here for awhile but they left back to my homeland.”
“Oh.” We went and sat on the couch. It was silent for a moment until Elan leaned over and pressed his lips against my firmly. I knew once our lips met it would be like fireworks on the 4th of July. My arms went up around his neck as I pulled him closer making the kiss intensify and more passionate. He pushed me back onto the couch and his hand went up my shirt. I broke the kiss for a moment biting into his neck. A muffled scream came from him as I drank his blood. After a moment he pulled me closer to him like he was enjoying it. I tried pulling away but he held me there.
“It doesn’t hurt. Just keep drinking.”
I pulled away anyways. “No. I’m done..”We both sat up sitting there quietly until he broke the silence.
“Really I’m fine. You didn’t hurt me.”
Moving his hair away from his neck I stared a the marks I had left. “You’re telling me that didn’t hurt? I don’t believe you. I heard you scream a little when I bit into your neck and I don’t ever want to hurt you again.”
He grabbed a scarf that lay on the couch and wrapped around his neck to hide the bite marks. He now stared intently into my eyes. “You wear contacts?” he asked confused.
I gave him a confused look. “What? I don’t wear contacts.” I touched my eye as a brown contact came out. My eyes slightly widened looking at it. I touched the other eye as the other came out as well.
“Y-your eyes…they’re violet.” he said in shock.
My body started to feel weird all of a sudden. My whole body tingled and then I felt it burning .“Your eyes are glowing!” was the last thing I heard before I blacked out.
I stared in amazement at her as her body floated in mid-air. Her eyes glowed a beautiful violet. Glowing soon covered her whole body.
She stared down at me; floating.“I am princess of Valkeria! You will obey my every command!” she said as her voice boomed throughout the house as if she were on a loud speaker. She floated out the door as it opened for her. “Sniff out the other mutts! Or die!”
Changing into my wolf form I whimpered and ran into the woods finding them almost immediately. I howled loudly so all who heard would come. More than ten, 7 foot tall wolves appeared before me. I lowered my heading whining. I’m sorry my fellow brothers.
She came up from behind me shooting them down on to the ground just with one stare.
I whimpered and whined as I watched them howl in pain. One of the wolves growled at me ignoring the pain he was in. You betrayed us! How could you do this?! You’re a weak spineless leader. I whined some more. She’s controlling me. I’m sorry. He ignored the pain once more and jumped at her knocking to the ground growling. Take the necklace from her neck. This is the source of her power. I ripped off the necklace and her eyes and whole body stopped glowing.
She stared at me as I carried her necklace in my mouth.“Bad wolf! Give it back! My father gave that to me as a child!”
I dropped it on the ground and quickly ran home leaving her behind with my wolf brethren.
im glad :)
I found myself in the woods with wolves glaring and growling at me. In front of me stood the Omega wolf. His fur was a mixture of brown and gray. There was a small part of it that looked almost as if were silver. He stood there on all fours, staring at me. This is a time I wish I had Elan with me.
"What are you staring at?" I heard a voice say in my head
I stumbled back a little. “D-Did you just talk to me?”
“Elan and you are connected. Are you not?” he asked.
I nodded. “I guess we are. So anyways, do you know where he went?”
He shook his head and his fur shook with it.
The other wolves cocked their heads sideways looking at me.
I giggled again.
“What are you giggling for?” he said. His wolf like eyes looked a little confused as he turned his head slightly sideways.
“You guys. You’re so cute.” I smiled, “I don’t understand why I never liked you guys at first. Hm, what’s your name?” I asked.
“Malechi.” He said proudly.
“Hm..Malechi..” I said to myself. These wolves didn’t seem so bad once you got to know them. I should’ve befriended them long ago. “That’s a nice name. I like it.”
Malechi growled at something in the trees. The rest of the pack joined in. I looked up to see two pairs of red eyes. Just like from my dream, they seemed to stare into my soul. They both jumped out of the tree at the same time landing on the ground swiftly.
“You dare bare your teeth at royalty you mutt?!” the female shouted at the wolves as they whined.
“Forgive us your majesty. Your scent threw us off.” Malechi said bowing his head slightly.
She looked at Malechi apologetically. “It’s fine. I’m disgusted by this vampire scent as well.”
Still standing there, I stared at her. She looked just like Elan. Her eyes were as beautiful as his. She must be his sister Ellanora. He talked about her a lot. He said they called her Ella for short.
Ella turned and glared at me. “What are you staring at you filthy blood-sucker?!?!”
I curtsied to her. “You must Ellanora, Elan’s sister. I’m very pleased to meet you your majesty.”
She looked a little shocked but smiled. “What a very sincere vampire. You must be of royal blood too. The DeLuccas’, yes?”
“Then you must be the all mighty vampire mother and father were talking about. They just couldn’t--let me rephrase that--wouldn’t shut up about you. Pleased to make your acquaintance.” she said curtsying towards me.
I smiled at her politely. “You have very loyal subjects and cute ones might I add.” I said giggling.
She stared at me; silent.
“What are you looking at?”
Her eyes widened slightly. “So it’s true. Your eyes are violet. They’re gorgeous. Don’t you agree Aleque?”
The man next to her nodded.
“Aleque…what an interesting name…”
He quickly looked at me as soon as I spoke his name. His eyes were just as the others, except they seemed, different. I stepped forward standing in front of him within seconds. He took a step backwards. “Your eyes…they seem sad and worried. It’s about your wife, isn’t it? She’s pregnant with your child.”
He look at me wide-eyed. “How do you know of my mate and child?!”
I blinked a couple of times, confused. “What do you mean?”
He moved closer to me getting in my face. “Do not make me repeat myself!”
I shrugged backing away from him a little. “I don’t. Just looking at your eyes I could tell. I mean they’re like the others but, different. Almost like you don’t belong. It’s just very difficult for me to figure these things out. They just come to me. I’m sorry if I offended you in anyway.” I bowed, looking up at him in his eyes.
He stared down at me in amasement as did Ellanora, Malechi, and the other wolves. He smiled at me, but not like the others. This was more of a friendly smile. He raised my head up.
I cleared my throat. I suddenly felt uncomfortable and threatened. Pullng away from him I fell backwards.
Ellanora smiled as well.
“Don’t be alarmed. I’m not going to hurt you.”
The wolves helped me up. “You were too close…”
He chuckled again.Ellanora stared at me intently as I looked away. “I’ve not seen my brother this happy for centuries. You are truly a special girl.”
“She is very…intriguing…” he said smiling still.
“Don’t look me in the eyes, it’s not safe to look me in the eyes.” I turned and ran as fast as I could but found Aleque running along side me. He reached out to grab me and stop me but I fell again tumbling out of control until I came to a stop. Quickly I pulled leaves and twigs out of my hair and stood up in a crouching position.
“I just want to speak with you.” he said putting his arms up as if surrendering.
“If you want to speak with me then you speak with me when others are around.”
We were just staring at each other but before I could take my eyes away he was in front of me; kissing me. I tried pulling away but his grip was too strong. He kissed me more aggressively. His hand moved up the back of my shirt, unclipping my bra and ripping off my shirt. We fell to the ground with him on top of me. I pushed him off and grabbed my shirt to cover myself. Elan. I took off running in the direction of his house leaven Malechi in the woods; dumbfounded. Bursting through his front door I searched around his house only to find him in his room. I fell to my knees on the floor and started sobbing.
“I’m sorry Elan. I told him not to look me in the eyes but he wouldn’t listen. And then we..” my voice trailed off. There was and awkward silence between us.
“Aleque?! He’s here?! You two didn’t--you know--do it, did you?”
I shook my head.He breathed a sigh of relief, walking over to me on the floor. “That’s good. As long as you guys didn’t do it. But he’s going to pay dearly.” he took off his shirt and handed to meI put it on and he pulled me close to him as my head lay on his bare chest. He gently stroked my hair.
I traced the tattoo on him with my finger. “What’s this tattoo for?”
“Every royal in my family gets the family crest tattooed on their chest including the women; when they come of age. It’s been a tradition of ours for centuries. What about your family crest?”
I sighed. “We have our crest imbedded onto out jewelry but my necklace is in the woods with the wolves and your sister; Ellanora.”
He sat straight up, practically knocking me over. “Ella is here?!”
