“I don’t need magic, I need your arms around me when the dark is too much, I need you to be real when nothing else is, I need you to be with me when everything around us is chaos.” Skylar Ray O'connerView More
SkylarA small frown plastered on my face upon my mate's words. He didn't say anything about his conditions to me. Not even a mention.His gentle hands left my shoulders, only to rest one on top of my head, the other in the pocket of his black jeans.Have I mentioned that I adore when he's touchy with me?Dominic raised his tattooed brow and leaned back in his seat. I wonder how his pants haven't ripped yet with how tight they were."If you were to ever be in a state where you have to choose between me or Skylar, you choose her. Always. No hesitation."My heart skipped a beat. Or two."What? No!" I whipped my head to face Xander, but his ultimate attention was placed on Dominic, whose face remained yet again neutral."No! Why would he do that-""This isn't up for an argument, Sky." He barely even looked my way. His tone was absolutely stern as if e
Skylar"Do we have to tell them today?"Alexander kept circling his thumps on my upper thigh as I sat in front of him on his office table with him in his extensive leather seat.He leaned slightly forward, putting his hand on my hips, making us much closer, and despite him sitting down, his eyes level was finally on mine."We can tell them whenever you're ready, baby. It's your choice."I nodded when he pecked my lips sweetly and even slightly giggled as he pulled me more down, my legs colliding with his chest. He grinned boyishly, like an idiot at me, and I found myself grinning foolishly back for literally no reason."Ayo! I hope no one's naked!" Dominic's voice shouted from behind the closed door and stormed in, "not like I would complain if you are though." he finger-gunned Xander with a terrible wink attempt and biting his lips while squinting his eyes.I couldn't stop my
Skylar"I presume this means I should be worried sick." I absentmindedly picked on the flower in my hand, the yellow petals slowly falling down on my balcony's floor.Yes. Dominic bought me flowers on our way back.The faint breeze calmly pushing them away. I tucked my hands under my thighs, letting the bouquet of roses on my legs.I nodded."What are you planning to do now, Stellina?" (little star in Italian)A sigh left my left as I blinked my very puffy eyes."I have to tell Xander first."We stayed quiet for a few moments; him enjoying his cigarette as he leaned against the railing, while I rocked myself on the love seat. Alexander was still at an important meeting when we came back and Dominic wanted to keep me company in my room, claiming I looked too sick to be left alone until my mate finishes.Charming, I know."I told you not
SkylarHolding my stomach down as I walked out of the restaurant seemed such a hard task at the moment. It was until I reached the car on the other side I let it out, though nothing came out, mostly because I have eaten nothing since this early morning. The morning sickness was too rough on me these past days. Yet, I'm glad I haven't. I rather eject nothing but acid and spit than my digested meal.Tears blurred my eyes, and my legs slightly trembled. I didn't realize Dominic was holding my upper arm until I saw his blurry figure near me, a tissue offered in hand.Once I felt myself finish, he quietly led me in my seat and climbed beside me.Silent tears run down my damp cheek, until they fell in small droplets down my jaw, to my neck.As odd as it sounds, it was ticklish, which made me giggle, and more tears fell. My laughers grew and my vision blurred stronger that I barely made out whatever w
SkylarWas this a bad idea?Maybe it is, but then again, I'm running out of ideas.Bitting the inside of my cheek, I got out of the car next to Dominic.Maybe I should have given a notice before coming uninvited.Screw it, just go in"Need time before going in?" I heard him speak low beside me, eyeing the quite empty restaurant in front of us.I took a deep breath, trying to ease down my nauseous and shook my head firmly, "no, let's go."I choose a random booth, my eyes noticing the familiar figure I've wanted to see. Dominic kept his black shades on, complimenting the whole bad boy-black outfit he had on. He takes his intimidating job way too seriously. Because even I at this moment was slightly intimidated by him, even though he's just casually sitting in front of me."Do they actually have nugget-""What are you doing here?"&
Skylar“Alexander,” I hesitantly stepped forward when I noticed the witch’s hand twitching, most likely to hex us to the afterlife, which he definitely could, ”he’s right, we got our answer so let’s leave.”I do not know where I found the strength and calmness to drag my mate outside and inside the car.But once the car began moving, a buzzing sound echoed inside my ears as I noticed Xander talking beside me.My brain stutters for a moment and my eyes take in more light than I expected. Every part of me goes on pause while my thoughts catch up.It’s confirmed, he or she is a hybrid. The prophecy is coming together. Our doomed f
SkylarFor how long have we been sitting here? An hour? A minute?My mind was blank yet my heart was a mess.From the corner of my eyes, I could make out the silhouette of my mate, sitting too still beside me, eyes looking at the large trees in front of us keeping his hand wrapped around mine on his lap.The only sound echoing around the car was our quiet breathing and unheard thoughts. The witch’s house in front of us was a burning reality that, indeed, this was happening. The whole car ride was a twist to the guts, a poisoning reminder. And now, here we are, sitting alone in the car right in front of the house, in the middle of an empty forest, as I expected.
Skylar This will forever be graved deep within my memoryWe left the check-up room a few minutes later, with more questions from Xander that for a while I felt bad for the doctor having to answer each detailed question. I don’t even know when he did his research about this when he barely finds time to eat nowadays or how he even noticed all the little things I did.He even questioned my unnoticeable bump, which she assured us it was normal.Each pregnancy was different.I was fully satisfied with her answers and assuration and when Xander was finally too; we left.I was madly craving chicken nuggets, so
SkylarDr. Sery was waiting for us at her desk when we walked in, a file in her hand.She smiled beamily at us offering us a seat, “My luna, Alpha, how are you?”“Good, I hope.” I let out a breath as I sat down, my anxiety surging through the roof.Xander didn’t sit and stood beside me, hand on my shoulder. Unconsciously, I put my hand on top of his, his presence alone was already comforting.“I have all your medical information here and so far everything seems good, however, is there something concerning you would like to discuss?”My mind searches for anything unusual besides my c
