Blaze is feeling restless. He came back inside the palace, after the brides ran away into the forest, to wait for the dragon, whom they like. They would be given a couple of hours head start and the dragons would follow the scent of the woman he likes to claim as his bride.
The newly mated couples would emerge somewhere around the next day or two. Then, there would be a ceremony that would be held to celebrate their mating.
It would be held after two days.
It's been a couple of hours and the dragons must have already found their mates. But for some odd reason, Blaze is restless.
There is an ache in his heart that is urging him to go out. But he knows he cannot go out tonight.
He looked at the Blue Moon that's shining brightly in the night sky. This is the night when a dragon would lose all his senses and claim a woman if he likes her.
The Blue Moon rays will the dragon inside them take over and it will not rest until he claims his mate.
Blaze is sure he would not find any woman whom he would crazy out of his mind like that to claim. But he doesn't want to take chances.
He tried to relax himself a little, but the more time passes by, the more restless he started to feel.
Soon, there is this urge that started to build inside him, that wants him to go find whatever it is, that is making him feel this way.
Brandon found his brother pacing here and there looking as if he is in pain.
'What happened to him?' he thought.
"Hey brother, what's up?" Brandon said walking up to his elder brother.
Blaze cannot explain his urge to fly somewhere and find someone. It's like a living thing inside him, tugging him somewhere.
Blaze gave in to the urge and decided to go check what it is.
"I am going out. Take care of things here until I come back" Blaze told his brother and walked towards the nearest balcony, which is big enough for him to fly from there.
Brandon is puzzled.
He looked at the Blue Moon and frowned a little.
"Brother, it's Blue Moon night. It's not safe for you to go out there right now. You might be forced to claim someone you might regret later" Brandon warned his brother.
But Blaze is not listening to Brandon. He has to go and that too immediately.
"I will be fine" Blaze assured Brandon, and shifted only his wings to appear on his back. He spread his wings and flew away, still in his human form.
Isabella on the other hand slowly gained her conscience. She opened her eyes and tried to move her limbs. But she found something heavy covering her body.
She struggled to break free from the mud she was buried under and slowly got up to her feet. Her memories are slowly slipping by.
She just remembers that weird-looking guy kidnapped her. She looked around her surroundings and found that it's dark and she is alone.
"Where am I?" She thought out loud.
Few Dragons who wanted to claim Arabella as their bride went that way, but they couldn't find Isabella under that mud.
It was more than a couple of hours ago. By now, they gave up searching for Arabella and claimed someone else.
But Isabella is forgetting who she is and how she came here, as the seconds slip by. She vaguely remembers her parent's faces and names, and who she was.
"What is happening to me?" She thought
She looked down at her mud-caked body and decided to wash first. The mud is stinking and it's making her feel heavy.
Isabella slowly walked in search of someone to help her to wash up and show her the way out of this forest.
By now, she forgot about her forced wedding and Cameron Davis. All she remembers is her parents and are desperate to find a way out of this forest.
Upon walking for half an hour, Isabella heard the sound of water. She followed the sound and found a small waterfall.
There is a small lake near the clearing, surrounded by tall trees. The clearing is grassy with some colorful wildflowers.
Isabella looked around and found herself alone.
"I saw no one while I was coming here. I don't think anyone would be living around this thick forest" She thought out loud.
She slowly removed her mud-caked clothes on the shore and stepped inside the lake. When she was waist-deep, she began to wash herself off the mud.
She didn't notice Blaze landing soundlessly on the shore.
Blaze's restless tugging brought him into the middle of the forest, where the bridal run is currently going on. He stopped when his eyes caught the naked back of a woman.
He became mesmerized and landed on the shore of the lake. The woman is washing the mud off her body.
'How did she get so much mud all over her body?' he thought.
'Is she already claimed by another dragon?' that thought sent fury coursing through his veins.
'She is mine. Mine alone' he thought possessively.
But soon frowned at his thinking.
'What is wrong with you Blaze? You didn't even see her face. But you decided she belongs to you?' Blaze thought and looked up at the sky.
The moon is safely hidden behind the clouds.
'No, it's not the moon. Then what is wrong with me?' he thought.
'I should go away. It's not good to watch at a woman bathing without her permission ' with that thought in mind, he turned away and walked a few steps.
'Just once. I want to look at her face ' he thought.
He hid behind a tree past the clearing and waited for her to face him.
When she ducked in the lack to wash her hair, she turned to face him.
The moment Blaze saw her face, he lost it.
'She is the one. She is mine' he decided, as she made herself safely inside his heart.
Her sea-green eyes flicker with awareness when she heard something move. Her soft plump pink lips parted as she tried to cover her body with her small hands.She walked back deeper into the water until the water covers her chest. She looked around her warily, as her reddish-brown hair looks much darker in the water.Isabella is 5.8 and has a curvy figure. Medium-sized breasts, not too small or not too large, perfect for her figure. A small waist and nice shapely hips.Blaze could see her body perfectly through the clear Lake water. It's not hiding anything from his eyes.He is feasting on her body with his eyes.Blaze is well over 6 .4 and with her 5.8 height, she would still look small beside him. His aqua blue eyes scan her from head to toe, finding pleasure in her increased breathing, and rapid raise and fall of her mounds, with the awareness that someone is watching her.But no matter how much he tried, he couldn't keep his eyes away fro
Throughout the night, Blaze took Isabella more times than he could count. No matter how many times he had her, his hunger became more and he started to crave more of her.They slept somewhere around the early morning hours.Isabella woke up with her body hurting everywhere. As the power of the Blue Moon wore off of her, she began to remember everything that happened the previous night.She opened her eyes wide and sat up with a start.She looked around the dim cave and found that she is alone and naked."Is it a dream?" She wondered loudly.The ache and the soreness she is feeling are telling her that it's not."Oh my God, I gave up my virginity to someone last night. Bella, how desperate are you? Why did you sleep with him? Were you drunk?" Isabella scolded herself."I need to get out of here before whoever he is could come back. I think I can still find my soiled dress from last night near the shore" she thought a
Arabella's parents house is a modest 3 storey house, with 4 bed rooms and 5 bathrooms. It's has a garden in front of the house on the right side. On the left side is a driveway for the carriages to come and go.The first floor has a receiving parlour on the right and a kitchen on the left. On the far right corner is the living area and on the left corner is a staircase to go to the upper floors.Isabella stood outside in the garden, confused out of her mind."What just happened? I was standing near that lake. How did I get here?" She thought outloud.A maid who was just coming inside the house, saw Isabella and misunderstood her as Arabella."Miss Arabella? You came back from the run? Come on inside. Your mother and grandmother are waiting for you" the Maid ushered a confused Isabella inside the house.Isabella followed the maid with a confused frown on her face.Elvina is Arabella's mother and Doris is her mother's mother, her grandmo
After 4 weeks, Bella is now sitting on a chair in the receiving parlour. Arabella's father is adamant to marry his daughter off to a suiter.He began to feel insulted when he found out that his daughter is not claimed by any dragon.As a famous jeweller, he is feeling insulted that his daughter is not claimed by any dragon. So before people began to talk openly about that, he decided to marry his daughter off to a Nobel rich man from their fairy society.Bella is feeling uncomfortable sitting in front of this stranger, while he is oggling her like the pastry in his hands.She discreetly looked towards the door for the other two woman, who begged for her to act like Arabella. They began to call her Bella, and she remembered that strange man on her first night in fairy.'He too called me Bella' she thought.But soon let that thought slip to the back of her mind.'You are not here to stay. As soon as Ari returns, you need to go back to yo
After his mate escaped, Blaze is hell bent on finding her. He took the addresses of all the bride's that were present that night and left the ones who were claimed by a dragon.He didn't know that there were 210 woman who were participated in this year's run and only 15 of them were claimed by the dragons as their brides.The remaining were sent home to their parents, by the time Blaze returned back. But he know she is not one of them. He saw everyone just before the run.None of them made him feel the way she made him feel. So he decided to search for the entire realm for her.The fact that she ran away after spending a night with him is new to Blaze. Usually woman fall all over themselves to please him. But she is different.The first thing she did after woke up is run away.'Did she know who he is? But then again, even if she doesn't, he is not bad to look at. Why did she run away? She is the first woman who ran away from me. My mat
Blaze nodded his at Doris and retreated to where he left Brandon. He is sure his mate is in that house and that the older lady is lying to him.But he needs to talk to his mate first. He doesn't know what she must be thinking.'If she wants to be with him or not, he is not sure. He doesn't know how he will make her agree to be with him if she doesn't like to be with him. But no one can break their bond, which is already formed. The tattoo on his chest, just over his heart is the proof of that' Blaze thought.Brandon on the other hand is searching for his brother. He took off so fast, Brandon was shocked to find him gone in a second."This is the village. My mate is here" Blaze announced as soon as he found Brandon."Really? Did you found her? Then what's the delay? Let's take her back to the palace" Brandon said excitedly."She is here. But I didn't see her yet. You should go back and take care of things there in my absence. It's not good fo
Blaze is surprised to hear her words.'That night was a mistake?' he thought with amusement.'No my Bella, it's not a mistake. I kept avoiding women all my life, now I like a woman, but she thinks our time together is a mistake? Damn it, woman, how should I make you understand that it's not a mistake? That night, in that forest, it was the night of the bridal run. If she was not willing, then what was she doing there? Isn't she one of the participants? What is going on here? Nothing which happens that night is considered a mistake. Then what is this?' Blaze thought with confusion.'Now I need answers. She is the only one who can answer those questions' he thought.All night, her thoughts and her scent kept assaulting him. He had little to no sleep at all.The next day, he waited for her to come to the forest to collect those tea leaves. But to his disappointment, she didn't. It was almost time for the moonrise when her unique scent assaulted his no
"No" he replied.Bella is shocked."What do you mean by 'No'? I am telling you I am not interested in you at all. I am telling you not to follow me like this. And you are telling me no? What does it even mean?" Bella demanded.Blaze looked at her blankly.'Some thing is wrong here' he concluded."I will tell you what I mean in a moment. But first, you tell me what were you doing at that time of the night in that forest" Blaze asked looking straight in to her eyes.Bella paled hearing that question.'What should I tell him? That I was kidnapped by Ari to replace her in that stupid bridal run? If I do, then it's a disaster waiting to happen' she thought."I was hiding there" she muttered.When Blaze heard her statement, he frowned."Hiding there? From who or from what?" he asked with a blank face."Ahh.. that...yes...From those stupid Dragons" she said hastily.Blaze raised his eyebrows at that comment.<
