I was in my office when I heard a light knock, the familiar smell filled my nose. A scent I hadn’t smelt in a while, I couldn’t be.
"Maya?" I said in a whisper.
"I'm back Xavy, I missed you a lot, did you miss me?"
"I thought you died, I saw those mutts kill you, you died right in my arms." I said confusedly.
"Oh Aspen, you know nothing. After those mutts killed me, I became a vampire. I had your blood in my system."
"Why are you back?" I asked.
"Because I missed you, I loved you so much Aspen. We were soul mates. We were destined to be together." She said taking steps closer to me.
"Maya, I'm over you. I have a mate. Who I love deeply." I said knowing what was about to happen.
"Aspen, don't be silly. I'm your mate. And if I can't have you then no one can." She spat.
"You are psycho."
"I know you still love me, watch me prove it."
Just then the thing I
-Skylar-"AIDEN JAMES MIKEALSON GET YOUR ASS HERE RIGHT NOW!" I shouted running after my son.You see after I caught Aspen cheating on me, I ran away. I left him with nothing. I hadn’t contacted him nor Jaxon. I have contacted Aurora, after all she was one of my best friends and nothing would change that. Aspen still doesn't know about Aiden and Aurora promised that she would never tell.It had been three years since I last saw him, three years of not feeling his lips against my skin, his hands in mine. I did miss him, of course I did."I sowwy mommy, I didn't mean to make you sad." He said as his bottom lip trembled.I pulled him into a hug, I now live with my two-year-old son Aiden in Florida. I know it is like a 10-hour drive from New Orleans and Aspen can easily find me but I have always wanted to live here. Only Aurora knows that I have moved to Florida, she came down to visit me for a year once Aiden was born, so that she could help
-Aspen-"I just said to him that I kicked Aspen's ass." As soon as I heard my name slip out from Skylar's brother's mouth, I knew exactly who the girl was."Skylar?" I said walking up from behind her.She turned her head, up-close you could see her properly, she had gotten her nose pierced and honestly it looked good."Aspen?" she replied looking up at me."I missed you so much my queen, my life has been hell when you-" I started."That's your fault for cheating on me Aspen, do you know how much that hurt?" she shouted at me."I'm sorry Sky- ""Well sorry doesn't make up for you cheating on me.""I-I is he mine." I said pointing towards the boy who was currently on Aurora's shoulders."No, why would he be yours? I met someone when I moved to Florida.""You are mine, no one else. And that's why Aurora went to Florida." I said pulling her into me."No Aspen, you don't get to tou
-Aspen P.O.V-I stood there, looking at all the drained bodies. Yes, I am a vampire, in fact I am the prince of vampires. I cleaned the blood of my mouth, using my sleeve, walking back towards my castle. This feels wrong, killing these worthless humans but at the same time it feels so good, this is what I do for a living. Vampires were born to kill humans, right? That is why we have fangs, right? No one can change my mind about this, not even my mother.Once I had arrived at my castle, the guards greeted me and opened the door for me. I walked in and started walking towards my room when I was pushed against the wall. Using my vampire speed, I quickly got up and looked to see my older brother Jaxson, Jaxson is 28, 2 years older than me in human years, he looks like me but a more mature and older version of me."What the fuck," I roared into his face."You need to stop killing all those humans, mom and dad are pissed, you’re the Prince, Aspen."
-Aspen P.O.V-I couldn't control it, her heart beating, her blood moving in her veins. So, I did it. I bit her and the worst thing was she was my soul mate and I had just marked her as my own. Her blood tasted mouth-watering and I knew straight away she was a virgin. I couldn’t stop, I didn’t want to, all I wanted was to drain life out of her. I never wanted a human soul mate; I never wanted a soulmate at all. Eventually, I took my fangs out to see her looking weak, I bit my arm, feeding her my blood and vanished out of sight.I had gotten back to the castle, I went to find Jax so I could apologise to him about before when I overheard my parents, Aurora, my sister and Jaxson talking about me."Mom I think we should have a ball so that he can find his soul mate," Aurora said
-Aspen P.O.V- "Skylar," she laughed and ended it with a smile, she looked breath taking, smiling at me. "It's nice to meet you Skylar but I have to go," I told her confused as to why she had not recognised me from the other night, I looked down at her neck, the mark I left on her was covered, covered in make-up. it made me angry, she was hiding my mark. "You look so familiar," she said with her eyebrows crossed. "Yeah, I get that a lot," she gasped. "Y-You you were the vampire that bit me, you left two marks on my neck," she said backing up. "I'm sorry I couldn't control it," I told her going to touch her. "Don't touch me," she said running back into her house. I wanted to go after her but I couldn't move, seeing my mate cry in front of me made me hurt and guilty that I was the one who made her hurt. I then found myself walking back to my castle, I walked to my room ignoring everyone. I sat on my bed, my vision started
-Aspen P.O.V- "She's human," Aurora blurted out, my mom began squealing like a 10-year-old girl and my dad stood there shocked. "How can you have a human as a queen?" Father said furious. "Oh honey, let them be. They were made soul mates for a reason," my mom calmed him down. "But how is a human suitable for the role as queen? This is why we should have Jax as king instead of Aspen, and Aspen is too immature for his age, he is not fitted for the role as the king," my dad blabbered. “He doesn’t even like humans.” He was right, I never wanted a soulmate, I was the type to only have one-night stands, that’s what I was known for, I didn’t care for anyone’s feelings. I only cared about the pleasure I was receiving every night. Honestly, I didn’t care for the girl, I didn’t want to, but something deep inside me was telling me otherwise. “Dad, it doesn’t matter if she’s human, it’s best if we get to know her.” Aurora cut in. "Honey, I w
-Skylar-I woke up with strong arms wrapped around my tiny waist, I tried to get out of this strong grip but it only made the mysterious person's arm cling onto me even more. I touched the hand of this person when something went through me, it was like lightning and butterflies erupted in my stomach."Sky, stop moving," the man said with a husky familiar voice."Ew get your gross filthy vampire hands off of me," I screamed. BANG, the door hit the wall and someone appeared through it."I heard a scream, what happened?" I looked up to see Jaxson. Aspen removed his arms from my body and I felt relieved but I kind of also missed his touch along my skin."He was touching me," Jaxson shook his head while laughing and then walked out the room closing the door behind him. Aspen turned his face towards me, I examined all his features and fell in love with it. His dark brown hair which was messy, his jawline which was super sharp and his eyes which you
-Skylar-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
