I woke up in my bed, it was comfortable but not as comfortable as it was in Aspen's room, oh how I missed being in his arms during the night, it made me feel safe and protected. I shook off my thoughts and walked into my bathroom, I have been staying at the castle for a while now and so far, it had been going well, surprisingly everyone here was friendly and welcoming. Today, Aspen had decided to take me out on a date, it was our first date and I wanted to look good so Aurora decided it would be best to help me. I quickly took a shower, washing everything and then hopping out. I dried my body and slipped on my undergarments, I walked out my bathroom to see Aurora sitting on my bed.
"Damn girl, you have the perfect body." She whistled, "just wait until you get into the dress, I picked out for you."
“Are you sure it’s suitable for our date?” I asked looking at the dress she was now holding up.
“Yes, I spoke to Aspen and this is the perfect dress.” I smiled and walked towards my vanity, sitting on the chair allowing Aurora to start my hair. I watched as she lost control and worked with my hair, curling each strand. I slowly stood up after she put make up onto my face, looking at myself in the mirror. I looked beautiful, the make-up was not too much and it was not too less. The door suddenly opened and in came Aspen, I looked at his eyes to see them turning black, I hadn’t realised I was practically naked until Aurora coughed, making me run into the closet. "He's gone," Aurora said after a while.
The view of my half naked mate's body, was the best view I had seen in my entire life. I heard the cute sound of her high-pitched shriek making her run into her closet. I let out a chuckle, giving Aurora an amused smile, all she did was point to the door. I walked back out of Skylar's room and into mine which was just the room next to my beautiful mate's.
"Aspen baby, I missed you!" He eagerly said as he jumped of the bed and hugged me.
Everyone meet Jason McCann, he has been my best friend since kindergarten, I kind of saved him from getting beaten up by a girl. Yes, little Jason almost got beat up by a girl. In my defence it was very funny but it was very mean to just watch so I had to help. So that's how I met Jason, he has been my best friend ever since. It gets annoying sometimes because he is exactly like an annoying pimple growing on your face, he just never goes away.
"Ew Jason get off of me." I said pulling him off me.
"How about we go and have some Jaspen time?"
"No, I have to get ready," I said walking into my closet and fishing out a black dress shirt and black jeans.
"Oooh, where is little Aspen going?" Jason cooed pinching my cheeks.
"Sometimes I regret saving you from getting beaten up by Angus in kindergarten."
"So where are you going?" he ignored my comment.
"On a date," I said putting on a clean pair of boxers. Okay I know what you are thinking. No, I am not gay. Me and Jason have seen each other naked before, it's natural for us. I mean we have the same body parts, so why not?
"OH, MY JESUS, DID WITTLE ASPEN FINALLY FIND HIS MATE?" he cooed and yelled at the same time.
I mumbled a yes and walked back into my room, putting on my shirt, skinny jeans and my black boots. I styled my hair, by styled I mean running my hand through it and put on my black leather jacket before leaving my room with Jason on my trail.
I finished my look by strapping on my nude heels. My outfit consisted of a white long dress, I walked out of my room, following Aurora down the stairs. As I descended down the stairs, I noticed Aspen was stood at the bottom, I couldn’t keep my eyes off of him, he looked sexy. I would so let him fuck me now.
"Nice to know you think of me that way baby girl," Aspen whispered into me ear sending shivers down my spine. "By the way you look hot too."
I blushed and followed him into his matt black Lamborghini. He ran towards the passenger side opening the door for me, once he closed my door, he ran in front of the car and into the driver's side. He rested his enormous hand on my thigh as he drove and honestly it felt so good but the feeling disappeared as he took his hand of me.
"You need to put this on," he said giving me a bandana.
I gave him a look but sighed once he pouted at me, which looked incredibly handsome. I put it on trying not to mess the make-up Aurora tried so hard on. The car finally came to a stop, I heard the car door open and close and then the door to my side opening. Aspen helped me out of the car and lead me to where we were going.
"Aspen, don't let me fall," I whispered.
"Never baby girl," he whispered back sending shivers down my spine.
We walked for a bit; I could feel my heels sinking into something as I was walking. So, either I was at the beach or we were in the woods, I just hoped we were not in the woods. I had a phobia of the woods ever since I was chased by a dog when I was younger. I felt Aspen let go of my hand and soon his presence was also gone.
"Aspen?" I whispered.
"Baby, you can take it off now." I tugged on the bandana letting it slowly come of my eyes, I opened my eyes to see the most beautiful view. There were white lanterns on the trees with fairy lights, from tree to tree, and in the middle, there was a table for two with a candle in the middle. Aspen took my hand and lead me to my seat, a waiter came and served us our food, it was pizza.
"Aspen, you seriously got us pizza," I laughed.
He chuckled and we both dug into the food, might I say that was the most amazing pizza I have ever had. After we had eaten the entire pizza, Aspen took my hand and took me towards the second part of today’s date. The sky was pitch black and all you could see were the stars. Aspen stopped at a lake and lied down on the lake's bridge, he patted down next to him indicating he wanted me to lie next to him. I looked at him like he was crazy but finally gave in.
"My granddad used to bring me here when I was younger, I used to come here every day but stopped when he died. It used to help me think about stuff," he told me looking upset about something.
"Thank you for bringing me here Aspen, I really appreciate it." I kissed him.
We lied down on the floor, sat in silence looking up at the stars. "The view is beautiful," I told him.
"I know." I looked at him to see he was staring at me.
I chuckled and blushed, looking back up at the stars. After some time, a loud yawn was escaped from my lips. "Come on baby girl let's take you home."
Aspen picked me up and took me to his car, by picking me up I mean he actaully picked me up and ignored my constant pleading of him to let me down because of how I don't like to be carried bridal style. The minute he had buckled me and himself up he started his car and drove towards the castle. As soon as we got back to the castle, me and Aspen got out the car and made our way inside.
"Aspen I have a question," he nodded towards me, "When are you going to become king?"
"Once we have completed our bond, it's in the vampire culture that the king has to rule with his queen by his side, well I had a great time so I'll see you tomorrow"
"Aspen, stay with me." I said looking up at him.
We walked hand in hand into my room, I let go of Aspen's hand and walked into my bathroom. I couldn’t help but think about what he had just told me, was I ready to be queen, queen of all vampires?
"Aspen, stay with me." I heard my beautiful mate say.
We walked hand in hand into her room, she then released my hand and strolled into her bathroom. I watched as she swayed her hips trying to tease me, I was so going to get her back for that. I walked into her closet and took out a pair of my sweatpants, don't ask why I left my sweatpants in Skylar's closet. I went and sat on Skylar's queen size bed, I personally got her a queen size bed because she is a queen, Go Aspen! I heard the bathroom door click indicating that she was going to come out. I snapped my head up to see Skylar's beautiful body in the red lingerie I asked her about when we were at her house.
I felt my vampire, Vladimir, coming to the surface but I learnt to control him because I didn't want to complete my bond with Skylar without her consent. Skylar walked towards me giving me a seductive smile, my eyes flickered down to her lower area then towards her hip, where there laid the mark of an angel. I knew that mark from somewhere but I wasn't able to put my finger onto it. Skylar was now much closer to me and she was about to sit on top of me when I pushed her off and ran out the room. That mark, I know that mark from anywhere. Maya! Was the only word that went through my mind before Vladimir came to surface and took over my body.
-Skylar- I watched as he sprinted out my room, a frown was now replaced on my face. I picked up my body and sat on the bed, I felt tears roll down my cheeks and the taste of salt filling my mouth. I knew that this was not a good idea, I didn’t know what came upon me, I wasn’t the type to seduce men. I got changed into a long shirt, put on some fluffy socks and made my way to Aurora's room. I knocked on her door but walked through when I didn’t hear an answer. I could hear the shower faintly running so I decided to wait. I walked towards her bed and sat down; pulling my phone out to see if I had any miscalls from Aspen but there were none. After what felt like hours Aurora had come out the shower and after I had told her everything, I broke down crying and now here we are, with Aurora comforting me as I cry about a guy. "Hey, instead of crying over my douche ass brother lets watch a movie and eat junk food," I nodded. "Okay, I will grab the food fr
-Aspen- It had been four days since Skylar fell unconscious and I hadn't left her side at all. Even though I was mad at her, no! mad isn't the word, disappointed, she was still my mate and I cared about her.Yeah, if you cared about her, you wouldn't have pushed her off us the other day.My vampire Vladimir said. Hey, I saw the angel mark on her hip, it was the same mark Maya had.Aspen you need to move on from her, it has been years.He had a point; it was time that I moved on from Maya and gave my full attention to Skylar who has been in this bed for days. I missed seeing her beautiful ocean blue eyes, her long light brown hair that glowed in the sunlight, her mouth that I would always leave those passionate kisses on, her jawline that I would always leave a trail of kisses on and lastly her smile, it was the most beautiful characteristic she had and honestly it was my favourite, I loved how she always smiled, how she alw
-Aspen-"Aspen?" I heard the familiar voice behind me say, "I was pranking you."I turned around to see Skylar standing there, I ran up to her, picking her up and spinning her around in my arms. I hugged her so tight because I was cared she would leave me."I want to talk to you," I told her, leading her into the forest behind the castle.-Skylar-"While you were in that hospital bed, I had been thinking, thinking about you. All I'm trying to say is I love you." Aspen confessed.I sat there dumfounded, not knowing what to say, I loved him as well but I wasn't sure whether he would believe me, maybe he would say that it w
-Isabella-As soon as I walked into the mall the smell of blood and woods hit my nose. MATE my wolf Rosie yelled in my head. I followed the smell to see a boy with blonde hair, he had tattoos down his arms and he had the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen. Having a mate was the last thing i had needed right now, my priority was finding that human girl. I saw that the human girl that Master wanted me to kill was walking away from him, I instructed my guards to follow the girl and kidnap her while I got the car ready. 10 minutes passed and I looked out the window to see James coming with the girl.-Jason-It had now been 2 hours since Skylar had left me, I was getting worried because she had not called me to meet up. I called her phone but she would not answer, I tried t
-Aspen-1 week of Skylar gone, 1 week of Vladimir gone, 1 week of me feeling the pain Skylar is in and 1 week of her not next to me sleeping. The thought of Skylar gone makes me want to kill myself because of all the pain she is going through, because I was selfish enough to not put any guards with her and made her take useless Jason instead. I've been searching for Skylar non-stop, I have Jason, the idiot, hacking into her phone trying to find her location. I have guards out during the day and night looking around town trying to find her. And me? Well I've been sat in my office moping at the fact that the love of my life is gone and is in pain. I haven't eaten, showered or slept in 1 week, who knew a girl could have this much of an effect on me.-Skylar-SLAP! My cheek was now t
-Skylar-My eyes slowly fluttered open, I looked around and I realised I was no longer in that dark and dirty cell. I was in a white room which I assumed to be a hospital. I looked around the room to see Aurora on the couch next to me, I was hoping it would've been Aspen sitting next to me, holding my hand, waiting for me to open my eyes so he could kiss me."Aspen?" I said to Aurora, my voice coming out raspy."I'll go find him, do you want a glass of water?" I nodded as she walked out of them room.I took of the blanket off of my legs because I was starting to get warm, I gasped at the bandages that covered my legs. You could see the blood that was trying to escape the bandages."H
-Skylar-I walked through the long dark hallway; I didn't know where I was. I could smell chemicals, instantly I could tell I was at the hospital. I walked towards the end of the hallway, finding a room. There was a back faced towards me, a man crying into the girl’s body, I looked closer to see I was on the bed with Aspen next to me. I jerked forward as I felt a hand touch my shoulder, I looked behind me to see my dead cousin, Drake. “Drake?” he nodded, pulling me into a hug. “What’s going on?”"Sky, I don’t have much time but you have to wake up, if you don't bad things are going to happen.""But I want to stay-" he cut me off."With me. I know Sky, how much you miss me, but when you wake up, you're going to be a hybrid. Y
-Skylar-Suddenly, the pain stopped and everything around me looked completely different. Not in the sense that I was in a new environment, the way I was seeing everything was different. It was like I had a new pair of eyes; everything was much sharper. My nose filled with the most beautiful scent, cinnamon, my nose followed the scent, landing on Aspen. I looked at him, only to see him looking at me with complete and utter shock. I tried to get out some words, wanting to ask what was wrong, but nothing came out apart from a howl. Why was I howling?I followed Aspen’s eyes to see he was gesturing me to look into the mirror, I slowly made my way, unable to walk, falling to the ground. My face landed right in front of my hairy hands, hairy? I looked at my hands in confusion, these weren’t my hands. I looked up to see I was in front of the mirror, except it wasn’t me in front of the mirror, it was a wolf. I looked at myself in shock, how did
