“You were lucky I was jogging in the area and heard you screaming.” He said. “Are you ok? Let's get you out of here. My name is Syrus, It is nice to meet you.? He smiled.
I couldn't catch my breath, I was so thankful that someone had been near. I couldn't believe this had happened. So many thoughts had been swirling around my head. I had a feeling Lillith had been behind this. I was so upset with myself for allowing this to happen. How could I have been so weak?
I took Syrus’ hand and he helped me to my feet. “Thank you so much, I don't know what I would have done if you hadn't come by. It’s actually really embarrassing. How did you throw him so hard?”
“Oh it was nothing, you really should learn some
Synestra’s P.O.V.I stood there lost in the hug with Gabe. His muscular arms around me, I felt safe, felt whole again. I inhaled his scent slowly, savoring the familiar woodsy scent with a hint of something sweet. I hadn't realized how much I had missed him. I almost didn't hear him when he spoke.“Is this why you have been gone so long?” He asked, pulling back to look in my eyes with his hands gripping my shoulders. “Who is this Synestra? Is this who you have been with for the past two weeks? You have had us all worried to death.” I could feel the sincerity in his words and a tinge of guilt ran through me. I wasn't sure if the guilt was for being gone so long, for worrying my friends, or for the things that had happened with Damien while I was gone without even a second thought of Gabe. Synestra's P.O.V.“Sorry for the dust we don't use this much. Make yourself at home, I am going to put our bags in the bedroom.” Gabe told me as he started towards the bedroom “Fair warning there is only one. I hope that is ok. I can sleep on the floor. I would say I would sleep on the couch but with everything you have been through I don't feel comfortable leaving you alone.” I nodded and followed him to the bedroom. Walking through the cabin I was taking it all in. The place was very small but cozy. The bedroom had a king size bed and two nightstands and not much else. The bathroom was attached to the bedroom and though it was small it had a shower large enough for two. The kitchen and living room were an open space and there was a small dining table only big enough for two.I yawned, exhausted from the long day I had. I laid on the bed and motioned for Gabe to join m

Damien’s P.O.V.After synestra had stormed out of the dining room I decided to let her have the rest of the night to cool down. I didn't want her to feel like I was pushing this marriage on her if it wasn't what she wanted. The truth was I knew this may have been moving fast for her. I may have been in love with ther for years but for her she was still getting to know me. I had hoped that finishing the mating process would have made her feelings for me intensify, this was the point of marking her and I couldn't understand why the bond wasn't as strong for her as it was for me. I had never heard of a demon completing the mating process and not having the strong mate bond on both ends. The feelings I had for her had escalated to the point that shwe was all I could think of. I craved her, her presence, her touch, her scent. Everything about her.The ne
Gabe’s P.O.V.Synestra had told me she trusted me. She had chosen me because of her trust in me. Yet I was lying to her, about everything. I wanted to tell her the truth. To tell her there was so much more on the line than our feelings for one another. I was honestly surprised that the demon hadn't already told her what I am just to try to turn her away from me. I wondered if he realized there was an emotional connection between Synestra and myself.We had been in this cabin for five days and the bond between us was only growing. We spent most of our days hanging out and getting to know each other on a deeper level. We traded stories about how we had grown up and the people we cared about. Some days we would swim in the lake, others we would lay in the hammock
Synestra’s P.O.V.Gabe had run a warm bubble bath for me and lit about forty candles surrounding the tub. He had turned on romantic music, John Legend, I loved his music so calming but also so romantic. He said I needed to relax but I couldn't help but wonder if there was more to his actions than he was letting on. Gabe and I had become much coser over the past several days. We had spent so much time getting to know each other. It felt like we had known each other for years rather than just the few short weeks it had actually been. After about thirty minutes into my bath I decided it was about time to get out. I slipped on the silk robe I found in the bathroom and walked out into the open room.“How was your bath angel?” he asked.
Damien’s P.O.V.Synestra had been missing for almost a week and I was no closer to finding out where that asshole angel had taken her. I knew there was only one way to find her and that she would hate me for it if she ever found out. I had to go talk to her mother. I had to remove the magic my father had used on her so she would know everything that had been going on.I let myself into their home, knowing Lailah wouldn't be home just yet. Her typical shift at the hospital had just ended and from what I knew of her she would be home in about fifteen minutes. I made myself comfortable on the couch after helping myself to a glass of sweet tea.I heard the sound of her keys in the lock and she entered the house. She sensed my presence before she saw me. Her wings sprouted from her back as she pre
Synestra’s P.O.V.I wrapped the robe around myself as Gabe went to the door. My heart was beating out of my chest. I looked around frantically trying to come up with an exit plan. I had a feeling that it would be some of Lucifer's men at the door looking for me and I had to have a way out of here. I knew Gabe would fight them to protect me as long as he could, giving me extra time to get away.I slipped on a pair of Gabe's shorts and a t-shirt I found discarded on the floor after last night. I tried opening the window that faced the back of the cabin, I was sure I could make it out of the window before anyone could get past Gabe. I pulled up on the window with all of my strength and it wouldn't budge. I double checked the locks on the window , but still nothing. I assumed the window must have been painted shut. I knew I could make it to the ba
Damien’s P.O.V.I looked around at the hundreds of dead angels littering the floor around me. I was covered in blood.. My blood soaked shirt clung to my heaving chest. The metallic taste of blood sat heavy in my mouth. Their white wings had been stained red. Blood was dripping down the walls and off the ceiling. I stepped over the bodies on my way out of the building. I took in the sights around, savoring the scent of blood in the air and the squishing sound with every step I took. I smiled, admiring the scene in front of me. It was official, the old me was back and it felt so good.None of the angels at Halo had given me information that I could use. I had to find someone that would be able to give me more information about Gabe. I decided to go back to Seraphine, hoping that she may have some more information.Latest chapter
