It has been two weeks since I started training with Sebastian. After my encounter with Gabriel, I asked Sebastian a favor to teach me how to fight since he was great at it. We worked tirelessly in the gym which was situated in the west wing every single day.
Each day came with a hectic task and by now, I am great since I am a fast learner. Sebastian has been teaching me the basics and now the real tactics. It hasn't been easy with a lot of muscle pulls and hard falls but I need all I can get. I have a point to prove.
"You've gotten stronger than before." Sebastian remarked passing me a bottle of water.
"That's because I have a great teacher." I smiled at him.
Sebastian was really good and strong. Most of the time I made it a habit to stare at his strong muscular body. It was really distracting most times but nothing I can't handle.
"Of course, I am a good teacher." Sebastian smirked.
The door to the gym flew open revealing the blond and bald head. I felt a path of guilt in my heart. When their eyes met with mine, I felt like hiding under my skin.
"Lincoln, Derek." Sebastian acknowledged as they walked closer. I didn't know if Sebastian was oblivious to my insecurities or not.
Right now they were grinning at Sebastian.
"Hey man," the bald head guy greeted.
"Linc man, you look like you could actually use the gym indeed." Sebastian teased making them chuckle.
So the bald head was Lincoln and the blond was Derek. I think I need to apologize to them.
"Linc, Derek, you guys met Lyka?" Sebastian asked.
Of course and I drugged them.
The guys gazed at me and right now am shrinking inwardly.
"Lyka," I introduced with a fake smile.
"Guess our first acquaintance didn't end well then." I continued awkwardly.
"Actually that's true but we can correct that. What do you think Lyka?" Derek smirked at me.
"Yeah, I guess." I smiled to them.
"Come on guys," Sebastian eased the tension I was feeling. I needed a break from my anxious nerves.
"What do you say we do it again on a new slate?" Lincoln offered a handshake which I gladly took.
"I am sorry...for everything" I said timidly.
"No problem Lyka, we understand your reasons." Lincoln smiled.
Me and the guys became really acquainted that evening and by the time I went to freshen up, I really felt the ache in my muscles. Dinner was even better with the amiable conversations between different guys.
After dinner, I wasn't so tired and so I decided to take a walk around. I sat on the brink of the fountain staring at the reflection of the moon in the water. I am wondering how drastic my life has changed from an ordinary human to a supernatural being.
I even wonder what Samantha thinks or is doing. I miss her a lot now.
While I was lost in my thoughts, I noticed a shadow walking to the west wing. When I watched closer, I realized it was Gabriel. The broad built body and tousled hair, it really fit him so perfectly. Now this was my time to show off what I have learnt.
I stealthily tiptoed to his direction making sure I am as discreet as possible. I walk closer to his silhouette whose back is to me. I walk closer until I am sure I can attack. I waste no minute when I launch at him.
As if he senses my presence, he stops my fist midway so steadily. I am not backing down, not now, not today. I twist my hand out of his grasp and go for his jaw but he stops me quickly.
His face is so calm and emotionless like I am just playing with him. This angers me more and I angrily go for his groin but he stops me by his hand. I am flustered with how calm he looks. I need to make an impact.
I rethink my attack and that's when I try to elbow him but he immediately grasps my elbow and I use this as a chance to kick him in the stomach but before I know it, am flat on the ground his eyes still stoic gazing into mine.
"Urghhh," I huff angrily.
He has managed to win me even without trying. I didn't even get a punch to touch the cotton button up shirt he has on.
He hasn't said a word but instead watches me struggle beneath his grip.
Down here I can see perfectly his beautiful sculpted features of his face. His steel gray eyes trained on me sternly and his prominent masculine arms looking sexy and strong under the shirt. I am now having the best view of my life.
Oh poor Lyka.
I need to go back on track, to where we were before I zoned out.
"Alright, you win." I muttered calmly.
Gabriel left me and stood up turning to leave not bothering to help me up.
"Wait," I called stopping him.
I stood up from the ground walking to him until I was in front his 6'4 towering over my 5'8 but I didn't care.
"I really need your help to be a better person." I didn't care if I was begging but I had to do it.
"Is that all you got Lyka, giving up already? You really have a lot to learn." Gabriel asked with an arrogant raised brow.
"I am trying, don't you see?" I said my voice a little on the edge.
I am like a ticking bomb, any minute am likely to explode but I am trying to keep my calm.
"Then try harder." he said in an unfazed voice.
I am losing it and now I have totally lost it. I am an impatient being and I even don't know his I have managed till now.
"Can you get that stick out of your ass? Don't you see that am trying here?" I mumble irritably but instead he looks unfazed by my outburst.
"Is that what Sebastian has been teaching you? If you can't control your emotions, then you are no good. You are as good as dead and with your lack of knowledge about things and immaturity, you are a dead man Lyka." he simply discarded me.
Lack of knowledge, I mean what did I need to know? How werewolves eat? I have read about almost everything in those damn books.
Immaturity, just because I lack fighting skills and lunged at him doesn't mean am immature. What a judging prick he is!
Of course am beyond pissed off. He keeps making me feel like to trash and expects me to be happy about it.
I am going to stand up for myself no matter what.
He knew Sebastian was training me.
Of course, he knew. Great job at being discreet.
Right now I don't care if he knew or not, I need him to get my point and I am going to prove it despite his arrogance and coldness.
"At least he wasn't a coward to teach me." I challenge.
"You didn't even get past a mere punch, get over yourself Lyka." he scoffed arrogantly.
He was right about that but at least I made an effort.
"Go to sleep Lyka, you look tired." he dismissed me walking away from me.
I am really tired but I am not giving up, just not yet.
"Then why don't you teach me." I said stopping him in his tracks.
"You are so weak Lyka. You don't know what you are asking for." he said in a strong authoritative voice without turning to look at me.
"I can prove you wrong. All you have to do is give me a chance." I was now in front of him again.
"Go to sle..."
"Why are you always ready to dismiss me each time? Is it because you fear I might beat you in your own game?"
I am literally surprised about my outburst but seeing a reaction out of him satisfied me. I think he is surprised too.
Gabriel clenched his jaw like he was trying to control something. Either I was ticking him off or I was getting to him. I just hoped it was the latter.
"You don't want to go there now Lyka, do you?" he asked in a challenging tone.
He was right about him being better than me but I knew I could learn and be better. I just needed a chance.
"Now why don't you give me a chance, if I don't prove worthy, you are free to withdraw." I suggest anxiously.
The thoughtful look in his eyes made me hopeful. Silence for several seconds increased my anticipation.
"Okay," he sighed defeated.
"I won't let you down." I said in an excited tone.
"One chance Lyka." he threatened seriously.
I know he means his threat but I am sure, I would not blow it.
"Tomorrow morning, at exactly five, in the backyard." he addressed in a hard tone.
"And one last thing, I hate late comers."
Next thing I know is his back at me while he majestically walks further in the long hallway.
Please follow, vote and comment..Lyka's P.O.VI am stumbled out of my sleep by my alarm buzzing.Shit. It is already time.I am so sleepy by the time I reach for my night stand to switch it off. I am not usually a morning person and this waking up early is really sickening me.Who the hell wakes up at four thirty to prepare for training by five. Either Gabriel is making my life hard so I can back out but not now and not ever. I am not planning on quitting or my laziness is at its peak.Groaning frustrated, I kick away the duvet stretching lazily. I stand up a little drowsy making my way to the bathroom. I wash my face
Lyka's P.O.VIt has been a week since Gabriel started training me. If am to say, I wouldn't call it actually training but a lot of load work. We have done nothing like boxing or any martial arts but a bunch of load work, running, skipping rope, carrying weights, logs.I am losing my patience with this kind of training. This is not going to help me to become better, in fact it is only draining me to the extreme. Waking up really early to lift weights or run and by the time I go to sleep, I have a lot of muscle pain. This is getting on my nerves.Not only the hard work but also Gabriel, he has been nothing but a complete asshole to me. He only barks orders, loses patience easily, scolding me at each mistake and threatening me. I really hate him for re
Lyka's P.O.VI think I underestimated the word council but after learning from Sebastian about them, I should be in total horror."There is my dad and aunt, then Jacob, he's an old man, not too old, grey hair. He's like one of the most important council members and oldest. He's arrogant, rude, irrational and strict.""Emma and Ezra are twins, all blonde hair and green eyes. You should be careful because they are really cunning, cold and mean business."" Uriel, he's like a cave man, strong, tall and black hair. He is quiet but I think he is the most intelligent one.""That doesn't sound good Sebastian,""Come on Lyka, you don't have any
Please follow, vote and comment...Lyka's P.O.VBy dawn, the council members were gone. Their work was done here and the work was mine now I guess with the all the training Gabriel is making me do.I now regret the time I opened my mouth to say that I needed real training because I am hitting the punching bag for the hundredth time, I feel like fainting."Alright, we are done here." Gabriel announces.I sigh hard and thank the heavens for this time because this is torture. I grab my bottle gulping down the water till it's almost done.I feel every muscle in my body ache due to a lot of boxing and physical exercises."Lime water will help with the muscle pain and som
Please follow, vote and comment...Lyka's P.O.VToday we didn't train early in the morning as usual and I am as fresh as new after some good rest. Actually Gabriel told me we were going to start training the whole day and after breakfast, I followed him.I actually wanted to tell him about yesterday that I found out what he wanted me to understand.As he led me to the woods, I was actually admiring his backside. Could the man be any less attractive?I ignored my wanton self-reminding myself that he was my teacher and an asshole but that didn't stop me at all. As we continued through the woods our feet making noise as they stepped on the dry leaves.
Please follow, vote and comment...Lyka's P.O.VWhen I move out of the room with the paper, I quickly walk down to so as to find Gabriel to tell him about what I found.Immediately I step out of the room, someone is behind me holding a sharp blade to my neck.Iam scared shitless that I even don't know what to think. I want to shout so that someone could hear me and run to my rescue."Silent, if you dare open that mouth of yours, I won't hesitate slicing this beautiful neck of yours." my captor says in a harsh tone pressing the blade closer on my skin.I wanted to think it is a night mare but when I opened my eyes again, t
Lyka's P.O.VI wake up in a pitch black room where I cannot see a thing even when I try to squint my eyes. I am cold from skin to borne and I am shaking miserably. My teeth are clenching brutally and I am scared to death.When I try to move my body, all I feel is a lot of headache and the cold metal biting onto my skin. When I try to free them, I realize I am cuffed and not only are my hands but my legs too. Who could have done this?I can't see anyone or hear anyone at the moment as I try to think about how I ended up in such a place. Was I in hell? I didn't know what to do but rather shout for help but all I can hear are echoes of my voice shaky, nervous and desperate.I continue my shouting as I try to release myself in v
Lyka's P.O.VTo say I was shocked was an understatement, I was freaked out. When I realized the owner of the voice, I gaped unbelievably.It was an old woman with short grayish hair facing towards the fire place her back to us.Then how did she know I was here.She wasn't even facing us and she knew I was here and she knew my name. Immediately the woman turned to us and I am not surprised to see her wrinkly face. What shocks me the most are her eyes which lack irises and pupils, her eyes are white.No one looks baffled or scared at all and in fact their faces are neutral except mine. I now realize that the guards and Sebastian are out perhaps protecting us from any trouble.Now I am wondering how s
