We stayed like that holding each other until there was a knock at the door. My father came in with breakfast. I turned around surprised, expecting my dad. I felt Julian tense up in my arms.
"I thought I'd bring this up for you guys. I just wanted to see how he was doing." My father said.
I watched as he's slowly looked around me to look at my father. I looked over at my father and saw him smiling at Julian.
Julian looked at him curious but nervous.
"Julian, this is my father, Thaddeus. Thaddeus this is Julian."
My father stayed where he was over by the table. Probably afraid to scare him if he came closer.
"Hi Julian!" My father said."I hope you're feeling better this morning. I brought you up some food."
"He still looks extremely pale. Have you by any chance giving h
Julian's POV "Hun, I know it's probably been a long time since you had blood. I know you need it, I want you to feed on me." What!?....that..why would he say something like that? They've teased me with many things but they've actually never teased me with blood. They simply never gave it to me or offered it. Even if it would have been a joke. This has to be a joke I think as I feel my fangs tingle at just the thought. No! No I can't. I heard him wrong right? I heard him wrong. "W-what?" I asked. "I want you to feed on me, you need blood." I feel my eyes go wide as I know what I heard the first time was correct. How can it. What's the catch? Without even trying I feel my fangs tingle even more at the thought of possibly, just maybe I might be able to have some blood. But I push that away. That's not possible. I've never been given blood before. The only blood I've ever had was from a mouse or rat. I don't even know w
Reid's POVI had just put him back in bed when I heard a knock at the door. The door slowly opened and my aunt's head popped in.Abigail smiled at us and slowly walked in closing the door behind herself."I know you have to go talk to your father so I was thinking maybe I could stay in here and keep him company while you're gone." She said.I look back at Julian and he was holding the pillow in front of himself again. I sit down next to him and gently cup his face.'I need to leave for a little bit and go talk to my father. This is my aunt Abigail. She's very nice, she won't hurt you, I promise.Would it be okay if she stays in here with you?"He looks over at her nervously for a moment then back at me. He slowly nods his head yes and I smile before leaning forward placing a kiss on his forehead."I'll be back soon." I s
Reid's POV I walk into my office and I'm surprised to see my father not sitting behind the desk. Instead he's on the opposite side sitting next to my dad, Damian, and Marcus. My father smiles at me and I smile back. "Hi everyone, I'm sorry I'm just now getting here. I had to get Julian situated first before I could meet with you guys." "No need to apologize, I completely understand son." My father said as I took my seat behind the desk. "So how is Julian doing? I'm sorry if I scared him when I pulled him off of you. Zeus feels bad too. He didn't mean to growl at him." "He's doing better. You were right though, he did need blood. The color is coming back to his skin. He's still pale, but not as pale. I'm going to have the doctor come in and see him today. That's it he'll let him examine him." I paused for a moment. "I really think he was born down there. Either that or he was down there from an infant. He doesn't know anything. You should see him the way he looks at everything a
Reid's POV As I made my way back to my room I paused in front of my door. I heard the most wonderful sound I've ever heard in my life. I heard Julian laughing. I heard Abigail's voice say something followed by Julian laughing again. I slowly open the door and herd him giggling. Oh my Goddess, I don't know what's better his giggle or his laugh. I opened the door enough to peek my head in. "H-he really d-did that?" Julian said in his sweet soft voice. "Yes! You should have seen him running around with a dress and makeup on! It was hysterical I heard Abigail say as she slapped her knee leaning forward laughing. I watched as Julian started laughing and cracking up right along with her.
Reid's POVI'm confused not sure what's going on. I rub his back soothingly."It's okay calm down. What's wrong?He's still looking around as if he's looking for somebody. I grab his face and make him look at me. What's wrong?"Alpha? Alpha is coming here?" He said.I'm totally confused at this point."I'm the alpha." I said to him still not sure what he means.He instantly retracts his hands from me as his eyes go wide. He slowly starts shaking his head no as his body trembles uncontrollably. He tries to scramble backwards off of me but bumps into the table.I reach for him and he screams and falls over the side of the chair before scrambling to his feet. He kept trying to run but would only make it a few steps before his legs would give out and fall again. I got up and slowly approached him as he kept d
Reid's POVAs I was talking to Xander, Marcus walked over to me with his phone in his hand."I think we need to go to your office for a minute." Marcus said. He looked at my parents, 'both of you as well." He said as we all looked at each other. "Okay." I said.I walked over to my sister and julian. "I have to step into my office for a minute with these three." I said pointing over my shoulder with my thumb. I shouldn't be long, can you stay with him for me?" I said to my sister. She smiled brightly at me, "sure, of course!""Great thank you." I looked at Julian. "I'll just be inside the house for a few minutes. I'll be right back out as soon as I can." He smiled at me and slowly nodded his head.We went into my office where we can talk without anyone hearing us since the office is soundproof. I noticed my father didn't look too hap
Reid's POV "No wonder he's so messed up!" I said as I rested my face in my hands. "He was born down there.... He doesn't know anything.... Nothing!..... My goddess, that's all he's ever known." I said as my voice cracked. I felt my dad wrap his arms around me. I heard somebody hit the wall. I turned in my seat and wrapped my arms around my dad. I glanced over at Marcus, he had his head in his hands leaning forward with his elbows resting on his knees. My father was staring at the ceiling with his head back resting on the back of the chair. Damien was standing next to the wall with his arm resting against it just over his head. A hole in the wall just next to him at shoulder height. "How could his own father do that to him?" I heard Damian say. I turned my face into my dad's neck and closed my eyes. I stayed like that for a moment just letting my dad hold me while I took in his scent to calm down. It's not my mate but it is my dad
Reid's POVOnce we got to the table Julian again wouldn't let me set him down in his own chair. I think he was even more intimidated this time because everyone was sitting around the table.So instead he settled for sitting in my lap which I don't mind one bit. My sister placed his plate in front of him and one in front of me then walked away to finish passing out food to everyone else.His reaction to food is the same every time. He looks at it longingly as if I'm not going to allow him to eat it. As if we placed it there to tease him or something."Baby you can go ahead and eat." I saidHe just sat there staring at it with a sad face while biting his lip and playing with his fingers as he held his hands together against his chest.I looked around the table and noticed everyone staring at him with a sad face. This is the first time they've witnessed his reaction to food.This is also going to be the fourth time he's eaten. The fourth
