Arriving in Vince kitchen made Gwen wonder about where she was. She had been pretty content about everything since feeling the bond that made her complete and she knew that Vince will always protect her but now, she wanted to know some facts. Like for example where was she, this is certainly not her in her street since her street was full of apartments buildings and place is clearly a mansion.
When Vince dropped her on the counter and turned to heat some blood up for her she grinned at his back, clearly he liked to take warm blood and didn't know that she doesn't take preference if it was hot or lukewarm. She slipped from the counter as she moved to meet him as she wrapped her arms around his waist and rest her head on his back.
" Gwen, what are you doing. " Vince asked as he felt her head through the shirt that he quickly threw on.
" I just want to remain in contact with your skin. " Gwen replied as she buried her nose in his back and took in a deep breathe, his scent filled her as her mind went dizzy and unfocused.
Vince chuckles at her reply as he poured the blood into a cup. He turns as her head met his chest, she is a lot shorter without her heels. " here drink up. "
Gwen smiled at him as she took the cup and went to sit on top of the counter but Vince redirected her to a chair. " why" she asked looking at him with a bemused expression on her face.
" since I am watching you now, we might end up in bed together instead of having this conversation. You are much too temptation on the counter. "
Gwen smiled at his answer as she moved to the chair and sat down drinking her cup of blood with unhurried ease.
" how old are you. " Vince asked Gwen as he sips from his own cup. He didn't need blood as much as a fledgling need it and he could stay a month without blood sometimes although his sister warned him never to try that again.
" I am 23. " Gwen said as he looked at her mate face. She didn't need to ask him his age to know that he is very old. He would be nothing less than two hundred and fifty years and the power that clutch to his skin was electrifying and also the fact that he has a house like this. It all can mean only one thing. Vince is old and powerful.
" vampire years. " Vince corrected.
" a year. " Gwen said.
Vince chuckles, " I am practically robbing the cradle. " he mumbles but Gwen heard him and she got angry at that statement.
Vince head shoot up as he felt the rage in the bond and looked at Gwen who was glaring at him and also wearing a hurt expression. " Gwen, " he started...
" do you regret mating with me. " Gwen asked in a hurt tone.
" hell no. " Vince said as he walked her and knelt in front of her. " I don't . You will be an amazing powerful vampire and I will be right by your side as your mate. "
" then why did you say that. "
" because it is true. I am old, too old for you. But I am never letting you go. "
" 250 years is not that old. " Gwen said dismissively as Vince froze.
" you think that I am 250 years. " Vince asked and when Gwen nodded, he laughs.
" how old are you. " she asked him as he smiles.
" way older than 250 years. " Vince said.
Gwen knew that he wouldn't tell her his age so she changed topic. " are you involve in vampire politics. "
Vince fake a shudder as he picked up his cup. " nope. I hate it. " he said as he drank everything in his cup and took her empty cup too and went to the sink to rinse it.
Gwen looked around and Vince noticed. " what. " he asked her.
" how can you afford a house like this if you are not involve in the ruling of vampires. "
" I am involved in the ruling of vampires. I am just not involved in politics. " Vince corrected.
" how can you be involved in one without the other. " Gwen questioned.
" there is a way and since you are my mate. You will know soon. " Vince said and left it at that.
Gwen left the topic alone since she could sense that Vince didn't want to talk about it. She is already knowledgeable about his moods and behavior.
" where are we. "
" in my castle . " Vince answered evasively.
" Castle, I thought it was mansion. " Gwen said excitedly. " I would love a tour. " Vince nodded his approval as Gwen looked at him. " I changed my mind, you are about 500 years. "
" why the increase. " Vince asked with humor.
" because I felt like increasing the age. I would like to go to my home now. " Gwen said.
" you can't leave. " Vince said confused why did she chose to leave all of a sudden.
" why. " Gwen asked with her eyebrows raised.
Vince breathed. " a lot of people might be after you. "
" why. "
" because you are mated to me. " Vince said and when she still looked confused he knew he had to explain or she will be so hard headed about leaving and he rather have her in his castle willingly than tied to his bed because she tried to escape him.
" I teleported here with you. " he said hoping that she would take the hint and know that he is a primordial.
" so? " She asked in confusion.
" have you done your primordials study yet. " Vince asked.
" no, I did vampires history last month and I heard about the primordial then. " Gwen offers.
" only primordials have the power to teleport. " Vince tells her as she grins.
" but you can teleport. " Gwen pointed out and when Vince just stared at her without saying anything she continues. " but you are five hundred years old, the Vampire war was over a millennium. "
" no, darling. You decided that I am five hundred years old. I never said anything about it. " Vince corrected.
" then how old are you. " Gwen asked with her hands folded across her chest.
" fifteen hundred. " Vince said as she stares at him. " and a primordial. "
Gwen sat in the den a month later as she smiled at what her life had turned to. When Vince told her that he was a primordial, she had not believed him and he just gave her a patronizing smile and asked her if she knew the face of the the primordials who rules the vampires directly. She snapped at him that she was young not dumb and he did a video call with them and although they were busy, they answered the call and started to talk about issues concerning vampire but she was numb. Her mate was vampire royalty and not the primordials easily seen, no. One of the rare ones that kept to himself and whose existence was shrouded in mystery because historians have not really had the chance to view his life since he guarded his privacy a lot.When he left the conversation, she apologized for doubting him and had done everything he told her to do which included packing into his castle. Although she had agreed that she might need alone time, so
Vince was stroking Gwen arms when a knock sounded on their bed room door. He signed as he glance at his mate face she was still sleeping peacefully and he knew that none of his staff would knock on his door unless it was something very important so he stood up and wore his clothes as he walked to the door. When he successfully shut the door without waking Gwen up, he turned to the person who knocked. " I am sorry sire for disturbing your time with your mate but another attack had just happened in the Vampire community in Romania. " his butler said quickly hoping to reduce Vince anger at him. He knew that newly mated pairs were not to be disturbed but this was a very important situation. Vince tried
For the past one week. Vince has been scarce since he was looking for his sister and Gwen had been lonely. She hardly have anybody to talk to and the servants were always bowing to her. She had finish another month training on her own, had been practicing self defense but still she was lonely. She missed Vince and she couldn't even tell him that she miss him, he would just find a way to be with her and search for his sister and end up overworking himself, even primordials need their rest and Vince was no different. Gwen sighed as she thought about the times she spent with Vince, about how she almost told him that she loved him. Sure she had spent more than a month with him and him being her mate means that he is hers forever but that doesn't mean that she can just blurt o
Vince had a stressful week and he was slowly getting irritated by it. It doesn't normally take this long before he sees his sister then again he had always been focused on the task but this time he couldn't give all his focus to finding his sister, not while he has a mate and his mate is not with him. He gets so worried about her that he doesn't know if anything had happened to her.Leaving her alone without letting the other primordials to know was risky, one of them might visit him because they are worried that they haven't heard from him in a while and when they see Gwen there, all it takes is one assumption that she brok
Jessica mouth fell open as she saw her brother smile. Vince never smile like that. Ever. He rarely smiles yet when this girl who was a young vampire from the scent around her, launched herself at him. He started smiling and he hasn't stopped since. Even through the kiss that the Vampire was giving him, he was still smiling. Jessica wrinkled her face at the scene as she moves towards Jake who entered the room after the Vampire. " hey Jake. " she greeted with a hug that Jake returns absentmindedly. " what's wrong. " " Vince will kill me. " Jake muttered lowly. Enough so she could hear him but Vince couldn't hear him.
The next day was the primordials meeting and it was to be held at Vince home although Gwen was happy with the familiar environment, she was still a little fearful of the primordials, James had made one small mistake about why she was present and she nearly paid for it with her life, all she needed was to show her sassy self if Vince was not there and he would come back to see her broken body on the floor. " Gwen, it is too early for you to be awake. Go back to sleep and stop worrying. " Vince sleepy voice said from behind her as the arm that was wrapped around her drew her even closer to the bare chest that her back was resting against. "
" wait what. " Gwen asked as she looks at Vince. " I am not the leader. I am just the person who conduct these meetings. " Vince explains. " and take charge of all events that has to do with the primordials. " Courtney added. " and organise meeting with other races when it comes to that. " Caleb added. " and represent us for those meetings. " Jake said " and tell us what to do when we are faced with a problem that we cannot control " Matthew adds.
For the past one week, Gwen had done nothing but worry about the fact that she will be meeting other race rulers. She thought that the primordials might hurt her but this time she was sure that the new sets of people she will meet will have a hatred for her based on the fact that she is with the vampires. She had always heard of a thin level of understanding that each race had for each other and that is saying a lot because it was before this incidents started. She knew that each person that will be have some sort of disagreement with some body in another race and that might descend into fight quickly . She had brought up the issue of staying behind to Vince but he had refu
