“Good job!” Everyone cheers as I flip and block the dagger. It been two days and I am quickly getting how to jump and move around quickly. The Dance is in three days and we are probably as prepared as we can be and everyone knows what to do. We don’t know if the attack will happen after or before the ball but whatever happens we will be prepared.
I look up and everything seems normal to me now. I am so happy I start dancing and everyone laughs at me..
“Sorry, I’m just happy.” I giggle.
“Well I mean you have been practicing for about three days and you haven’t slept. ” Arias raises a brow.
“I have no time to waste, he’s coming and I rather be ready.” I state and Julius looks proud at me.
“Good girl one more time and maybe you should get some rest or visit Nyx.” Julius says and I nod.
I end up fighting him and he got me several of times but at the end I ended up beating him and I go to the dorm they let me sleep in and I stare in the mirror and look at my reflection and I can’t let Nyx see me like this.. Dang!
“What’s wrong my little demon.” I glare at Evan from the mirror.
“Don’t me that..”
“No yours..” I smirk walking away.
“Hahaha, very funny. ” He stops me and I stare up at him the only thing that really bugs me is that I can’t fully see his eyes.
“I can’t go see Nyx like this..” I point to my eyes and he stares directly into them and grabs my waist pulling me closer to him.
“I see. What can we do with those beautiful, sexy..” I start blushing.
“Stop..” I try pushing him away and he pulls me back in, we are playing light tug a war.
“Dangerous, mysterious eyes.” He kisses me softly and I push him away and giggle.
“Aren’t you smooth today.” I smirk.
“Oh well you know, I like your eyes that color.”
“Even if it means I’m a demon?”
“Yes but I mean you aren’t a killer or an evil person if anything I think I’m worse than you..” He chuckles.
“Well then.” He pulls me closer to him again.
“But if you want to go back to your normal eyes well maybe you should try contacts I heard they are amazing within the human population. “
“Smartass.” I punch him but bring him back into me and give him a kiss, “Thank you.”
“So quick question..” He smiles big at me.
“Who are you going to take to the ball?”
“Um myself and I.”
“Really so if Nyx is going with Arias don’t you think maybe we should go together?”
“Um no. I want to attend the ball myself plus we aren’t dating anymore right?”
“Are you going to hold that up to me forever?”
“Forever is a very long time..”
“We do live for a very long time.”
“Then you have time to spare..” I wink and walk away from him and I hear him sigh. I would love to go to the ball with him but I’m not just going to let him off the hook for breaking up with me. If he wwanted time then time is what he will get.
“Hello sister dear!” Gray jumps on my back and I yelp.
“Gray!” I smack him and he laughs,” Guess you aren’t mad at me anymore.”
“Well Evan talked to me and he made me realise I was being stupid.” What? Really?
“You and Evan talked and didn’t hit each other?” I raise my brow at him.
“Hey we may be different but at the end of the day we both want the same thing.. Your safety.” He stares at me.
“Why do I feel like you two are planning something?”
“What makes you think that?” He smirks.
“My heart tells me.” I stare into his eyes and he just hugs me tightly and I take in his smell of cool pine, musky smell.
“What else does it tell you?”
“That I love Evan but I also love you. I need you both in my life.” I admit.
“You selfish girl.” He shakes his head.
“I am but can I ask you something?”
“Do you dream about me..about us?”
“What makes you think…”
“Just answer me.” I cut him off.
“Yes. Many times.” So it is my father’s works.
“You aren’t in love with me Grayson.” I state and he is taken back.
“What do you mean.”
“Our father is using you to make me believe and confuse my feelings.”
“He told me he sends those dreams to you so you can feel it and wake up loving me more..”
“I don’t feel being used.”
“Remember when I told you I was willing to cause a sin for you.”
“I know..” He frowns.
I grab his face and make him look at me, “Hey, you know I love you but I need to get my **** straight. Deep down I know I love Evan more and I need you to be in my life but not as a lover but my brother.”
“I don’t know Kam..” He looks away.
“Please, Grayson. I love you more as brother and like mother told us we will always be together. Don’t make me choose. I know you don’t want to lose me either but why fight something that wasn’t meant to be. We are siblings this isn’t something right that we feel. Evan and I fell in love by fate and you and I were forced to fall for each other and to me that seems more like a prisoner. We don’t deserve this, mostly you. If you want to leave me then go ahead I would understand but if you stay I want you to promise me you will fight to be the older brother I missed so much.” I feel tears threatening to come out.
He’s quite for a couple minutes just starring at me intently and he kisses my forehead, “I understand what you mean. I rather have you as a sister than lose you forever. I need you in my life more than you think. I have lost everything and everyone I wouldn’t stand losing you too. One thing is I can’t promise you that I won’t have feelings for you but if Evan hurts you or Evan is one day out of the picture I will be there to help you all the way but for now for your happiness I will obey you and be that brother you need but I want you to remember that what I feel is real and I will always love you more than a sister.” He states and my heart starts beating fast.
“I understand. I love you too.” I whisper and he wipes my tears and I do the same with his and we both hug and for some weird reason I feel like this is a goodbye to Grayson, I tighten my grip and he does the same.
“Love you too little sister.” He kisses the top of my head.
