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
" why this house. " Gwen asked Jessica to distract herself from the hurt which Vince put her in. He said that in the heat of the moment but she will be dumb to discard it after all. It was things said in anger or in quarrel that matters. It makes you realise the person truly feelings. All she was to Vince was a property, why should she be surprised. That was all she was to Gerald, her ex, too. Nothing but a trophy.Jessica look at her with sadness. " this house is close to Las Vegas but far away that if supernatural stuff starts happening, humans will still be unaware. " " we are c
Gwen was in her room staring blindly at the wall opposite her bed when Courtney entered with Jessica. She glanced at them before she turned her gaze back to the wall. " honey, we weren't pitying you. " Courtney said as she and Jessica sat down on the be with Gwen. " then what were you doing. " Gwen asked with a bitter laugh. " we were admiring your courage. Not all women could let themselves to love freely after such hurt and even if the person was their mate but you did. You gave Vince a try but then you got to know that you are punishing him for somethi
Vince rarely sleeps but this time he was exhausted, for the past two weeks, he hadn't taken care of himself between looking for his sister and the primordials meeting and putting everything in place, he knew that he should stay awake to watch over his mate since they were in unfamiliar territory but his eyes were heavy and he wanted to sleep. After all she was already asleep so all he had to do was stay besides her. He didn't know she was missing until he felt the terror coming into his mind through the psychic bond, he stood up and pulled up his trousers as he glanced around confused, Gwen was not in the room and when the feeling continue to come through the bond.&nb
Everybody in the room turned to face the newcomers who were huge, at least to Gwen. They were taller than Vincent and other primordials but where the primordials were lean, these new guys had bulging muscles. She would have been more attracted to them if they weren't looking at everybody in the room like they would rather kill them than enter the room fully and act like nothing is amiss, and that included her and she wasn't a fan of people who would kill her. Gwen turned from the new lookers to Vince, hoping that he would look at her and tell her without words to go into their room and lock the door to prevent anybody from entering. She would normally be against being sent to her room like a child but now, she would gladly accept it. In fact, she wanted it.
A few hours later. Everybody was gathered in the conference room for the meeting, everybody but Gwen. Vince was certainly not going to allow them to near his mate anytime soon and if he had his way, he would teleport her back to his mansion, what made him think that she was safe wherever he is. She was attacked while he was in the house and he knew that he would never forgive himself for that for as long as he lives. He also knew that the reason why he mainly kept Gwen away from the meeting was because he wanted to protect her. There are people who were not happy with the fact that he had seen his mate. If the expression of the wolves were anything to go by, it meant that none of them was happy with the fact that he was mated and he refuse to make Gwen stay in their presence
Vince slam into the room as Gwen jumped in fright. " they are all idiots. "" to me, you are the idiot for scaring me like that. " Gwen said with a little bite to her tone. Vince stopped his pacing as he looked at his mate then went to her side. " I am sorry. " Vince said as he hugged her and felt his anger diminishing. " what happened. " Gwen asked making her voice to go soft so as to soothe Vince mood, it worked as Vince angry continued to reduced. " they refuse to work together. " Vince said getting angry all over again. " you think that they will use their head but no. They
