I hummed and continued to fly home; once I landed, I saw both my parents waiting for me. Taking a deep breath before heading over there, I couldn’t help but think this is going to be a long and dreadful conversation.
“Why did you leave the cave?”, my father asked; getting straight to the point.
“Am I not supposed to leave? I have friends outside the cave, you know.”, I told him.
“Where did you go?”, my mother asks.
“To the Howlers.”, I answered.
“Christian is just a dragon and you're a vampdragon. Did you forget?”, both of them sounding displeased.
“No, I didn’t forget that I’m a bloody vampdragon!”, I snapped at them.
Walking away was the best option for me, so that’s what I did. I can hear Christian wanting to mind link me, so I opened it; ⁑“So do you want to fly today?”, he asks.⁑
⁑“Hell yeah!”, vocalizing my excitement.⁑
I made it to my room and flipped onto my bed. There was a strong aroma coming from the other side of my room. But, I knew exactly what it was. It didn’t take long to smell the sluts, letting out a warning. They didn't listen, like usual, and let themselves in. Somewhat holding my anger back as I asked, “What do you two want?”
“We want nothing from you, Alpha. Your father requests that you must look out for us at school since we’ll be having the same classes.”, they both announce at the same time.
Rolling my eyes as I nodded my head, indicating to them to get out; once they left, I used my spare time to start forming a plan with Zaff and Dikais.
⁑“ How many creatures didn’t like Martin and Agatha being together?”, I asks.⁑
⁑“Um… it was mostly the werewolves and the vampdragons… and maybe some witches.”, Dikais says.⁑
⁑“The best thing that can happen is for you and Faye to have kids and hope that one of them is the hybrid mixed.”, Zaff says.⁑
⁑“ You do realize that’s going to take years.”, Dikais states.⁑
⁑“He’s not wrong, Zaff.”, I say.⁑
Before Dakais had a chance to open his big mouth we smelled our mate from above the clouds. She smelled like beautiful flowers that bloomed in the Spring. My only natural instinct was to follow her,but of course my father had to stop me. I paid very little attention as he spoke trying to sound graceful, “Shay and Sky will go with you.”, he says.
“Do I have a choice in this matter?”, I asked bluntly.
“No, they are your mates and you need to show them that you wa-”
“They aren’t my mates and quite frankly, I don’t care.”, I say interrupting him.
Running out of the cave and shifting midway, I couldn’t help but think of how that conversation left a bad taste in my mouth; I flew up towards everyone when I heard Cam screaming Faye’s name fearfully like she was in grave danger. Just as I was about to link them, I saw her. Catching her and say ⁑“Love, I know you’re excited to see me but please don’t scare your friends.”, I tell her.⁑
⁑“Sorry, I just missed you. Oh, my brother wants a meeting with us after school.", she tells me while leaning closer to my back.⁑
Faye fell asleep shortly after giving her friends a heart attack. I couldn’t even be mad at her if I tried, she is such a beautiful mate. We made it to the woods behind the school, and Faye woke up when she felt me shift. As we started to get closer to the front of the school, I quickly noticed everyone staring at me; out of the corner of my eye, I saw that Faye was uncomfortable. She doesn’t like to be the center of attention. Before I could do anything about it, Jay let out a low growl. It gradually gets louder over time. But before anything could happen; Valentina kissed him. Cam and Faye were squealing like little children, so Christian and I both shook our heads in disgust and dragged them away. Once we were out of sight, Faye stopped struggling so I let her go. I noticed the twins glaring at her. Before I knew it, they both were screaming and running away from us.It didn’t give me a chance to talk some sense into their thick skulls.
“Faye, what was that all about?”, Cam asks her.
“Just some twins staring at me. I had to send one back... to let them know not to mess with me. ”, she claimed.
“So, you saw Shay and Sky?”,Christian and I say.
“Who?”, Cam and Faye ask.
“Shay and Sky are the two sluts in our pack. I can’t stand them.” I said disgruntled
“All they want to do is steal mates from others for their own benefits.”, Christian stated.
Something tells me that Alina is pissed for whatever reason. I knew because she gripped my hand tightly and flung me towards her. I have no clue why she is so angry all of a sudden. Is it that hard to have some peace and quiet around here? As we continued walking to the front office, all the girls were giving her glares and she simply ignored them all; at the office, I took notice that the third couple were already there, plus the twins.
What is she doing with you?”, they ask.
“Who? Oh… you're talking about my girlfriend.”, I tell them.
They stared at me like I’ve grown two heads or something. They are too clueless to understand a simple joke. Rolling my eyes, Valentina quickly handed me my schedule.As I was leaving the office, I decided to head to my locker. There was something that was drawing me into some random locker close to mine. It smelled like Cam; Cam grabs three textbooks and hands one to Faye, then to his mate. But, Christian took both textbooks before walking away. Faye decides to hold her textbook in her hands and put them behind her back as she follows Christian. They got pretty far from us. As soon as Cam realizes, he bolts through the hallway to try and catch up with them. ; the rest of us just casually follow behind. We make it to history where Faye becomes tense, so I ran up and gave her a hug ; her body began to relax. Faye heads towards her seat. While someone is sitting on her right, there is an open seat to her left ; I follow right behind her. Once I’m there, I can hear her and the person next to her speaking.
“Faye, who’s the cutie?”
“Who?”, she asks.
“The new guy. He’s a cutie and a hottie; is he single? Nevermind, I’ll find out.”, the girl says.
“Maple, he’s dating someone one.”, my mate states.
I stayed quiet as I sat there. Maple as Faye calls her, looks at me before sending me a flirty smile. “Oh come on, Faye. We both know he’ll break up with his girl just to be with me.”, Maple says then states.
Faye doesn’t say anything but that doesn’t stop Zaff and Dikais from disliking her. Before I could think of something, Faye’s link with her wolf is open so I listen in.
⁑“What if she’s right, Alina?”, she says.⁑
⁑“Kevin isn’t going to break up with you because he wants to date Maple.”, Alina states.⁑
⁑“Do you remember all the guys I either liked or dated ended up falling for her?”, she asks Alina.⁑
⁑“Yeah, I remember.”, Alina says softly.
Without thinking all three of us spoke, ⁑“We’re not leaving you. You're our mate and we love you, not her. She can give me all the flirtiest looks, but she’ll never have our hearts.⁑
She tried to hide her face like a turtle moving its head back to its shell. It would have been quite rude to simply ignore her, so I gave her a soft smile. I softly grabbed her hand to show her my gentle side. None of them say anything until Cam notices. First, he gets Christian to look, then Valentina, and then Jay. Jay gives me a dirty look like he would have killed me right then and there. I knew what he wanted me to do, but I didn’t feel like it. He stops staring at me and he grabs his mate’s hand; Cam ends up squealing, which makes Faye hide her face. Cam’s squeal ended up alluring the rest of the class, they followed his glance to see our hands. Before anyone could say anything, Maple let the whole class know of her presence
“So, what’s your name, hottie?”, she asks.
“Kevin. And please, don’t call me hottie.”, I tell her.
“Kevin. So Kevin, what's your last name?”, she asks.
“That’s for me to know and you not to know.”, I state bluntly.
“Don’t be like that, Kevin. You’re hot and I’m hot, everyone knows we’ll end up-”
“ENOUGH! I don’t want to talk to you. I already told you that I am not single. I am dating Faye. So do yourself a favor and leave her and me alone, NOW!”, I snapped.
The room became dead quiet.. Zaff, Dikais, and I were very upset that we didn’t notice our wings; Faye squeezed my hand, but I didn't look over at her since the bitch is on the other side. “Baby, don’t be like th-”
“I hope you die in whatever hellhole you decided to come out of and I hope I never see you again! Fuck off before I rip your head off!”
“Kevin, Zaff, and Dikais, you guys need to calm down. Your wings are out; please calm down for me.”, Faye tells us.
We couldn’t keep our composure even if we wanted to, so she ended up kissing me. That made Zaff and Dikais mellow down a bit while it calmed me down. My wings fall back down now that I can recollect myself. My affection for Faye goes far beyond the stars that shine above. Once she pulls away, she gives me a small smile and I give her one back.
My wolf and I get upset, so I grab Kevin's hand while bringing my body closer to his. Continuing our way to the office, I notice a constant glare from my acquaintances but I simply ignore them; once we're at the office, we see Valentina and Jay. The two sluts are there as well. "What is she doing with you?", they asked together.That's definitely not creepy; just because you guys are twins doesn't mean you talk together."Who? Oh… you're talking about my girlfriend.", Kevin tells them.They stare at him as if he has grown two heads. I wanted to say something, but before that could happen, Valentina handed Kevin his schedule. Leaving the office and heading towards Cam's locker, I still couldn’t wrap my head around the twins and how they talk and act in perfect sync. Cam hands me my textbook,
After kissing her hand our teacher comes in and he notices the heavy tension so he quickly puts notes on the board; as we’re writing notes the tension is less and so he teaches.“So, how many of you know about the first war of supernatural creatures?”, the teacher asks.Cam, Christian, Valentina, and I raise our hands; he nods his head before he turns his attention to the board. He writes and speaks at the same time; “The first war vampires, dragons, and witches were on the same side against werewolves, fairies/faeries, and mermaids. Understandable vampires hate werewolves, which isn’t a surprise, but dragons didn’t; knowing these werewolves tried to get dragons to see their side of the story, but when the werewolves told them what happened, dragons became furious and they agreed with the vampires.”
God, you got to love Valentina’s quick thinking. That could have gone worse. The bell rings so off we go to the library; making our way to an empty table, we start on our paper before Jay speaks. “So, how are we doing this? Cam has the pixie one since we told the teacher about it; so where does that lead the rest of us?”We don’t say a word. ⁑“What if we could make three of us do hybrids.”, Valentina says.⁑⁑“And the other does a single.”, I say back.⁑ We didn’t realize that we mumbled, but I felt their eyes on me so I speak, “What if Valentina does the vampweredragon while Kevin does a werewolf.”“And Jay can do a vampirewere, while Christian does a dragon one, which then leaves Faye to do a weredragon.”, Valentina finishes.
Jackson doesn’t let her go, which pisses us off. “Get your hands off our girl! NOW!”, we say while growling. He lets her go out of fear while he and Malcolm run off, Faye comes in front of me, making sure that our eyes were on her before she got on her tippy toes and kissed us. Before she could fully go down, we kissed her hard but passionately; she also kissed us back with the same amount of passion. Someone pulled us apart, and we just lost it; “Give us our mate back!”, we say, growling. We try to calm down, but all we can smell is Jackson’s scent all over what’s ours. We see her come in front of us and she softly smiles- ⁑“Love, I’m safe.”, she says.⁑⁑“We know but it’s just hard when Jackson’s scent is all over you.”, we say slightly growling.⁑⁑“So, why don’t yo
Upset but also wanting to respect Mr. Colon, I held myself back from lashing out at the girls a second time. Which didn’t sit well with Alina as she fights me- ⁑“Alina, stop.”, I tell her.⁑⁑“Why, they're flirting with our mate?”, she says angrily.⁑⁑“Because you know damn well, he doesn’t like those girls.”, I say snapping back.⁑I can feel Alina rolling her eyes as she continues to fight, which I can understand where she’s coming from, but that doesn’t help him or ourselves. I could calm her down until we heard the two sluts speak under their breaths.“Why would our man want to date someone like her, let alone be happy with her?”Alina and I were flarin
I continued to watch my mate interact with Cam and a few other students. Zaff wasn’t too happy about her being around those boys but once we got a smell and we found out that they were humans, so he calmed down. I was about to speak to Faye but their teacher hands me two sheets with our lines; glancing over the lines, the first sheet is when Romeo and Juliet first met- “Now everyone, when you’re saying your lines, make sure you have the right emotions. Which person in line will read one line then the next will read one line and so on.”, the teacher says, “Now, let’s get started.”“If I defile with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine-the gentle sin is this- my lips, two blushing worshipers, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.”, I say.My vampire and dragon side are gagging inside my he
Nodding my head as I watch Mr. Colon give Kevin and the girls two sheets- "Now everyone, when you're saying your lines, make sure you have the right emotions. Which person in line will read one line, then the next will read one line and so on.", then Mr. Colon says, "Now, let's get started.""If I defile with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine-the gentle sin is this- my lips, two blushing worshipers, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.", Kevin says.I had a funny feeling that Zaff and Dikais aren't too happy about why these lines which make Alina and I want to laugh, Kevin looks at the girl and she reads, "Good pilgrim, you criticize your hand too much, which appropriate devotion shows in this; for saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy pilgrims' kiss."The
I watch as he walks away but then I notice Faye isn’t here anymore so I look around and I see Cam but I don’t want him, so Zaff takes initiative and links her- ⁑"What’s wrong?", she asks.⁑⁑"Kevin, wants to know where you’re at.", I say.⁑⁑...⁑⁑"Isn’t Cam there?", she asks.⁑⁑"He is but…", I say while trailing off.⁑⁑"I’m heading towards our math class.", she answers.⁑I make my way towards her scent with Cam a few feet behind me with his mate; continuing on my way I hear a girl named Maple talking. “So, why does Kevin want you and not me? I’m much hotter than you?” Well, that’s harsh, but I say nothing while Mapl
