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 and stood up on shaky legs.
Her entire body protested with pain.
"Damn, I don't know for how many times we did it. It hurts" she complained to the empty cave.
She slowly walked towards the entrance and stood under the waterfalls. The cold water felt good on her body.
"Hmm," she hummed and suddenly hissed when the cold water touched her bruised skin.
"Ouch. He is a beast" she muttered and decided to go to the shore.
Arabella and Aurora on the other hand were guilty of leaving Isabella in the middle of the forest in an unknown land. So they decided to go check on her.
But they didn't find her in the place where they last saw her.
"Do you think someone claimed her?" Arabella feared.
Aurora shook her head.
"I don't think so. You should stop worrying. As soon as we leave her in your parent's house, then we are going to the human world. Then you wouldn't have to worry about her anymore" Aurora told her.
"Ok" Arabella agreed.
"But first, we need to find her," she said worriedly.
"Let's go find the lake nearby. She must be feeling muddy and must have gone there to wash herself off" Aurora guessed.
"Maybe. Let's go check it out then" Arabella agreed and they both went to find her.
Upon reaching the lake they didn't find her anywhere but found her soiled dress.
"That muddy dress seems to be hers. Then where is she?" Arabella murmured distractedly searching for Isabella.
They heard the lapping of the water and looked in that direction. Sure enough, Isabella was swimming to the shore.
"There she is" Arabella pointed out excitedly.
"Shh. Keep your volume down. If she asks us who we are, then what will you tell her? That we are here kidnappers? Don't let her see us or hear us. As soon as she gets dressed, I will go from behind her and shift her to your parent's house. Then they will take care of her" Aurora planned.
Arabella nodded her head.
They saw Isabella wash up her dress as best as she could and proceeded to wear the wet dress.
The once white dress is now brown and unrecognisable.
"Time to implement our plan" Aurora murmured and shifted behind Isabella and lightly touched her hair. Then she shifted her to Arabella's parents house and Aurora shifted back to the lake.
Arabella is startled when Aurora appeared a minute later.
"All done?" She asked.
"Yes, it's done" she assured her girlfriend, but then, they both heard the unmistakable sound of dragon wings flapping.
They looked up and found a huge dragon landing near the Shore.
"Shit, why is a dragon coming here?" Arabella murmured fearfully.
"Hurry up, let's hide" Aurora suggested and they hid behind a huge boulder near the shore.
Blaze left Isabella's sleeping form to bring some clothes for her. He was gone for just 10 minutes.
He went inside the cave and found it empty. His heart began to pound loudly.
"Bella" he called loudly to attract her attention. But only his voice ecoed through the cave walls and she didn't come back.
When Arabella and Aurora heard him calling for Isabella, they both began to panic.
"Oh my god, she was claimed last night by a dragon. That too the king of the Dragons. What do we do now?" Arabella began to worry.
They cannot do anything in this situation.
"Let's go to the human world now. If he finds you here, it would be you he would think as his bride. Better let's escape before that happens" Aurora advised and they both Shifted to her brother's house.
After all, they need Yeshua's help to go to the human world.
Unknown about what happened in his absence, Blaze began to search the entire forest for Isabella. But he couldn't find her anywhere.
"Did she shift?" he thought.
'Last night she was compliant because of the blue moon. Clarity must have returned and she must have panicked. That must be the reason she fled. Too bad Bella, you are mine. That will not change. I will make you love me the way I love you' Blaze vowed.
He flew off towards his palace.
'I have a mate to seach for' he thought with determination.
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.<
When Blaze heard her reasoning to participate in the bridal run, he was convinced.These kinds of things always happen around here. Not many, but a few here and there. Brides who are not yet ready to get married will be forced by their parents, either for the greed of money or for the status in society. They might even force their daughters to give them a good future.But whatever the reason is, every year a bride or two would be forced to participate in these runs. But usually, they would not be claimed by dragons.Only willing females would be claimed. The Dragons can sense their hesitation even before the run could begin, they make it a point not to go after unwilling females.But his case is different. He got this urgent need to claim her as his. As soon as he saw her that night, that's the only thing that ran in his mind.But now, listening to everything she just said, he does not regret claiming her as his. She belongs to him. He will make h
Bella jumped a little when she heard some noise from behind her.He covered his chuckle with a cough."What was that?" She asked looking all around them for the source of the noise.Blaze decided to tease her a little. He never knows he could have this much fun by just talking to her."Might be one of the ghosts you mentioned" he responded casually.Bella paled at that comment. Slowly she moved closer to him. He noticed it as well."So, you saw any ghosts?" he asked her, trying to find out about how she got this crazy idea.Bella shook her head.No, she is scared of ghosts, but she likes to read ghost stories and novels. She used to sit inside her room and read ghost stories whenever she finds time.She likes to read a lot rather than watch tv."I like to read ghost stories. But I am scared of Ghosts" Bella mumbled.Blaze began to laugh at her explanation."You like ghost stories, but you are scared of gho
