I open my eyes and I didn’t dream…
I sit up and I look at Julie’s things and frown, “I’m sorry Julie..” We literally all just acted like nothing happened. She deserves so much more.. I mean we didn’t have a choice for Nyx’s sake we had to forget everything but still. I wonder what her father did when he noticed he killed his own daughter?
“Good morning.” Evan walks into my room and kisses me quickly and sits in front of me, “Did you sleep well?”
“I mean I think so.. It was dark, I didn’t dream or have any nightmares…”
“Isn’t that a good thing?”
“I thought I would but I feel lonely..”
“Wow only you would miss the nightmares.” He laughs.
“I don’t miss them..”
“You masochist.” He smirks.
“I am not!” I stand up and search in my closet for clothes.
“So we have a long day today. We have to continue training..” He states.
“Not for me. I’m not going today I am going to see Nyx. Plus need some time to clear my head and regain strength…” I change and he frowns.
“Okay but before you leave is there anything you would like to tell me?” He stares at me.
“No..” I say more like a question because I’m confused.
“Are you sure?”
“So nothing happened last night?” He leans against my drawer.
“Not that I remember..”
“Okay, see you later then.” He kisses me and walks out.
Does he know about my father? He probably does but just wanted me to confirm it? I get ready and I head over to the house.
“Nyx?” I yell and she comes running down the stairs and hugs me tightly.
“Yay! You’re here! I was so bored the entire time and let me say this house is freaking huge!”
“I knew you wouldn’t be able to control yourself.” I laugh.
“Of course not I mean this house is huge and has lots of mysterious rooms.”
“Well I am here now. What do you want to do?” I ask her and she shrugs..
“Maybe lets go out and walk around town and maybe get some lunch?”
“Sounds good, lets go.”
We head out and go to the little mall in town and just walk around for a while and we both bought some clothes and then we got some lunch, we just really talked about random things about how we miss messing with the neighbors back in the day.
We go back home and start messing around together but we get bored and nobody is home yet and it’s around 6 and we decide to walk around the woods.
“I miss Julie, she hasn’t texted me back since I texted her the other day..” She frowns and I feel guilty..
“Yea maybe she got grounded or something.. Just give her time.” I’m ****..
“Yea so how’s everything at school?”
“Boring, Same old same old..” She laughs
“So you don’t find it weird how both the guys you were hoking up with now get along so well.”
“I mean I wouldn’t say well..well, but at least they aren’t fighting all the time..” I shrug.
“Well I still find it weird..”
“Come home!” I hear Evan from a far.
“Kanaria come home quickly! We sense somebody is coming!” Evan says louder. I haven’t sensed anybody..
“Hey Nyx, lets go before it gets too dark.” I turn to Nyx and she nods and we start walking.
“Wait!” I stop as I hear foot steps and I can hear them coming towards us and around us.
“What’s going on?” Nyx asks scared as I turn and look around us.
“Someone is around us..” I whisper, “Nyx I need you to run when I tell you…” I whisper and Nyx heart beat is so loud I can literally feel it.
“Okay..” I hear them closer.
“Nyx now!” I turn to her and she starts running and all of a sudden a vampire comes running towards me and I stop them with my powers and I stare at him.. He doesn’t seem like one of us, he looks dead. Zombie like. I rip him apart and I turn to see another one running towards me and I kill that one too.
These aren’t the ones I sense..
I look and a lot of them are running towards me and I start killing all of them and one almost hit me and I stop him.
“Well look at you!” I turn to see a tall dark haired man with red eyes.
I rip the vampire’s head off and he turns into black dust, “Who are you?” I ask and he tries touching me but I push him away from me.
“You are very beautiful..” He reminds me of someone.
“What are you doing here?” I ask him.
“No wonder my son fell in love with you but I bet everyone loves you for your beauty..” Son? This can’t be..
“No! ” I turn and Evan and Arias and Julius are all starring at us. What’s going on?
The guy grabs me and I winch he pulls out a knife and I can’t move. I’t’s just like when Julius stopped me.
“Don’t hurt her!”
“I would never hurt my daughter in law. I mean if you get her.” He throws me to the ground and I see the owl, Nakir, fly behind him.
“What do you mean if I get her?” Evan asks confused..
“Somebody has an eye on her and let me say he will put a fight for her…” The man says and Nakir’s eyes start glowing bright…
“You aren’t welcomed here…Get out!” I stand up and he just grins and checks me out.
“Ugh too bad you are taken..But don’t confuse me sweetie I can kill you at this moment if I wanted too.” He tries touching me but I move.
“Don’t you dare touch me..”
“Or what?” He says and I look at Nakir and give him a nod and the owl flies between us and this huge explosion happens that literally throws me to the ground and I ball up and when I open my eyes I see that the guy was gone and Nakir was standing in front of me..
“Thank you..” I pet him and he’s purring.
“What the **** was that?” Arias asks confused, I look at them and they were all on the floor.
“That….that owl has powers!” Evan stutters in shock.
“It’s protecting you.” Julius dust himself off.
“I told you, this isn’t the first time..He’s my personal Angel.” I kiss the top of his head and it hoots and stares into my eyes and flies off.
“Is this possible Julius?” Evan gets up.
“I’ve never seen it. I mean anything is possible but a powerful animal?” Julius is trying to recall but nothing hits.
“It could probably be someone using an animal right?” Arias says and Evan helps me up and I dust myself off.
“That could be but I’ll look into it..” He stares at me, “How about we go home and have a talk of what’s been happening..” Julius starts walking and Evan grabs my hand I follow them.
“Hey are you okay?” Nyx asks running to me.
“Um yea it was just an animal I guess..” I smile.
“I know the guys told me it was probably a wolf or a mountain lion..”
“We are in the forest..” I wink at her.
“Well excuse us Miss Nyx we have some school talking to do..” Julius dismisses.
“Oh yea, sorry. I’ll be in your room..” Nyx smiles and walks away.
We enter the room and I sit in one of the chairs and Evan sits next to me and Arias sits near the window looking out.
“So that man was your…”
“Yes my father..” Evan finishes my sentence.
“But I thought you told me that your father…What? How? “
“Can we speak in private?” Evan asks Julius and Arias and they both nod and stand up and walk away.
“What’s going on?” I turn to Evan and he starts pacing..
“My father was really good friends with yours and they made this weird pack where my father could die for him and your father could bring him back.”
“So my dad did that?”
“Yes but the reason why I hate you father is so much more than ruining my family, he ruined my life..”
“He convinced my father of killing me or giving me up to him and my mother fought for me but she died for it and my father was going to kill me..” He starts shaking and I grab his hand.
“It’s okay.” I hug his head and he just tightens his grip..
“I want you to see..”
“Are you sure?”
“You will understand so much more if you do..” He whispers…
“Tonight in my room..” He whispers softly.
“Okay..” I’m nervous because when you see it you feel it. You feel their pain but at the same time if we do this I am going to fall deeply more for him.
