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
That meeting strengthen Vince belief of if you want something to be done then you are the only one who could do it. He wanted to protect his race and he was the only one to do it. No other primordials seemed too worried about it. Even his sister, he knew that she voted with him because she believed him and then no matter what happens, Jessica knew that he would protect her so she give him her support whenever and where ever it was needed. He has been actively hunting down clues as to why what is happening is happening and he was not getting any closer. His mind was also not at rest based on the fact that he was lying to his mate and when his mate do catch up with what he is doing. He knew that there will be hell to
When Vince woke up the next morning and he knew at once that Gwen had not slept besides him and he also knew that a big quarrel is going to happen very soon on the issue because he refuse to not do anything about the killings and he wasn't sure that he has the strength or power for it. He went around his home looking at different rooms to check for his wife and he didn't see her. Just as he was about to start panicking, he saw her curled up on her favorite couch in the sitting room and there was dried tears tracks on her face. He mentally kicked himself for hurting his mate and as much as a part of him wanted to give in and do whatever&n
Vince had another unsuccessful day with trying to track down those who attacked the vampire, his mind was not on the hunt but his mate who he knew would be worried about him. When he finally gave up and went home, he saw Jessica in his room. " where is Gwen. " he asked his sister who gave him a glare. " she is in the bathroom. Dry heaving in because she is so worried about you. Can you not give the girl a break. " Jessica snap at him as she teleported away. He moved to the bathroom and knocked, she came came out with a nervous expression on her face and when he assess her he knew that she had
Vincent really didn't think of her as he left but that doesn't mean that he didn't think of her when he continued his hunt. His mind was not interested hunt and he knew that he would keep making mistakes but he already made up his mind not to return home until that evening and he knew that he was being cold to his mate but he needed to be. If he let's her get her way, she might think that it was okay to boss him around and he refuse to let another woman dictate his movements, even if the woman was his mate. ****Gwen woke up the next morning
