I watched as he sprinted out my room, a frown was now replaced on my face. I picked up my body and sat on the bed, I felt tears roll down my cheeks and the taste of salt filling my mouth. I knew that this was not a good idea, I didn’t know what came upon me, I wasn’t the type to seduce men. I got changed into a long shirt, put on some fluffy socks and made my way to Aurora's room. I knocked on her door but walked through when I didn’t hear an answer. I could hear the shower faintly running so I decided to wait. I walked towards her bed and sat down; pulling my phone out to see if I had any miscalls from Aspen but there were none. After what felt like hours Aurora had come out the shower and after I had told her everything, I broke down crying and now here we are, with Aurora comforting me as I cry about a guy.
"Hey, instead of crying over my douche ass brother lets watch a movie and eat junk food," I nodded.
"Okay, I will grab the food from the kitchen and you chose a movie on Netflix." Aurora super sped out of her room while I walked towards her television and chose a movie. "I see you chose Mean Girls, the best movie ever." I chuckled as I saw Aurora's reaction.
Throughout the entire movie all I could think about was Aspen and what I had done to him, the fact that it was all my fault. As soon as the movie ended, I walked out of Aurora's room and into mine, along the way I had walked past Aspen's room and all I could hear was crashes and loud sounds. I deeply wanted to enter and comfort him, but I ignored it and walked through my door.
A few days passed since I had last spoken with Aspen, I haven't seen him around the castle since then and every night I hear crashes in his room. Today Aspen's best friend Jason had a great idea for us to play capture the flag, so here I am getting ready for that. I put on a black crop top that had the words 'Adidas' written across it in white with black Adidas shorts, paired with Nike running shoes. Oh, shut up, I know what you're thinking, "why does she not wear Adidas sneakers as well" and my answer is well that would be crazy. I tied my hair into a high pony tail making sure to get every single stand into the pony tail, do you know how frustrating it is when you take so long doing your hair and then you see that you have left some stands out! Jesus Christ it’s very frustrating, sometimes I wish I was boy, I mean they don't have blood gushing out their vagina every month for 7 days and they don't go into labour when they are giving birth, so why not.
I walked out of the castle and towards the training field where everyone was, I made my way towards the front to see Aspen. Might I say he looks incredibly sexy. I looked at him to see a smirk on his face which was then replaced with a frown when his eyes connected with mine. He was dressed in nothing but black shorts and his running shoes. I watched as he laughed with the group of girls surrounding him, it broke my heart, seeing him with someone else.
Jason was going on about how mates were not allowed to be in the same team, but I zoned out while thinking about Aspen. I looked at my team to see it consisted of me, Aurora, Jason and some guards. In Aspen's team there was him, Daniel, Jaxon and some other people who I had yet to meet.
“Aspen said to take his shirt, he doesn’t want you to be walking around like that.” I looked behind me to see Jason.
“There’s nothing wrong with how I’m dressed, I’m not wearing his shirt,” I huffed, “If he wants me to wear it, he can tell me himself.”
I was chosen from my team along with Jason to guard and hide the flag, I didn't understand because we had guards in our team but Aurora said it was because I couldn't fight so it would be better if I guarded the flag with Jason. Me and Jason made our way towards a tall tree, ensuring that no one would be able to find us, Jason climbed the tree with me on his back until we reached the top of the tree. We both masked our scents so that no one was able to find us. "So, what happened with Aspen?" I told him the full story of what happened with Aspen leaving out the fact that I seduced him in lingerie.
"I've got a plan, but you have to trust me," I nodded him, I trusted Jason with my life, he was Aspen’s best friend, he wouldn’t let anything happen to me, right? The next thing I knew was a strong force pushing me off the tree. Aspen! Was the only thing I said before my body hit the hard ground and I felt darkness surround me.
I couldn’t help but stare at her legs the entire time, she looked breath taking. I noticed my men staring at her, staring at what was mine. I had told Jason to give her my shirt but she denied it. I couldn’t talk to her, her marked looked exactly like Maya’s, it was impossible. Skylar was human. Aspen! Went through my mind and a pain shook through my body. "SKYLAR!"I screamed. I followed her scent to find her on the floor. I heard heavy foot steps behind me.
"Guys go back to the castle we will deal with this," I heard Jaxson's voice behind me, "I mind linked the doctor, he said he's coming."
I picked her petit body up and held her so close to me. This is all my fault I ignored her. I made my way back towards the castle and laying her down in the castle's hospital.
"Is she dead?" I heard Jason say behind me.
"This is all your fault Jason; you were with her. I swear to God Jason if she dies, I will kill you," I said holding him by the throat.
"Aspen! Don't swear to God!" Jason exclaimed sounding like my mom.
"Guys, Skylar is unconscious you idiots." I heard the doctor, Sean say.
I punched my fists onto my desk in frustration, I was so close but it just slipped out of my grasp. A knock on my door snapped me out of my thoughts, I yelled come in as the door opened to revel my best assassin.
"Isabelle, you're back already, I just set this mission yesterday."
"Yes sir, and I have your money right here," she said placing a bag on my desk. Isabelle has been working for me ever since her parents died at the age of 10 and has trained with me.
"Isabelle, I have another assignment for you."
"What is it sir?" she questioned.
"The prince of vampires, Aspen has found his mate meaning he will now become king. However, his mate is human, this will lead to the werewolf population being ruled by vampires, which we cannot allow. So, your task is to assassinate this human." I tell her.
"But sir, wouldn't it be better to kill the vampire since we are the protectors of humans?"
"DO NOT QUESTION ME!" I yell at her.
"I will get right on the task sir."
-Aspen- It had been four days since Skylar fell unconscious and I hadn't left her side at all. Even though I was mad at her, no! mad isn't the word, disappointed, she was still my mate and I cared about her.Yeah, if you cared about her, you wouldn't have pushed her off us the other day.My vampire Vladimir said. Hey, I saw the angel mark on her hip, it was the same mark Maya had.Aspen you need to move on from her, it has been years.He had a point; it was time that I moved on from Maya and gave my full attention to Skylar who has been in this bed for days. I missed seeing her beautiful ocean blue eyes, her long light brown hair that glowed in the sunlight, her mouth that I would always leave those passionate kisses on, her jawline that I would always leave a trail of kisses on and lastly her smile, it was the most beautiful characteristic she had and honestly it was my favourite, I loved how she always smiled, how she alw
-Aspen-"Aspen?" I heard the familiar voice behind me say, "I was pranking you."I turned around to see Skylar standing there, I ran up to her, picking her up and spinning her around in my arms. I hugged her so tight because I was cared she would leave me."I want to talk to you," I told her, leading her into the forest behind the castle.-Skylar-"While you were in that hospital bed, I had been thinking, thinking about you. All I'm trying to say is I love you." Aspen confessed.I sat there dumfounded, not knowing what to say, I loved him as well but I wasn't sure whether he would believe me, maybe he would say that it w
-Isabella-As soon as I walked into the mall the smell of blood and woods hit my nose. MATE my wolf Rosie yelled in my head. I followed the smell to see a boy with blonde hair, he had tattoos down his arms and he had the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen. Having a mate was the last thing i had needed right now, my priority was finding that human girl. I saw that the human girl that Master wanted me to kill was walking away from him, I instructed my guards to follow the girl and kidnap her while I got the car ready. 10 minutes passed and I looked out the window to see James coming with the girl.-Jason-It had now been 2 hours since Skylar had left me, I was getting worried because she had not called me to meet up. I called her phone but she would not answer, I tried t
-Aspen-1 week of Skylar gone, 1 week of Vladimir gone, 1 week of me feeling the pain Skylar is in and 1 week of her not next to me sleeping. The thought of Skylar gone makes me want to kill myself because of all the pain she is going through, because I was selfish enough to not put any guards with her and made her take useless Jason instead. I've been searching for Skylar non-stop, I have Jason, the idiot, hacking into her phone trying to find her location. I have guards out during the day and night looking around town trying to find her. And me? Well I've been sat in my office moping at the fact that the love of my life is gone and is in pain. I haven't eaten, showered or slept in 1 week, who knew a girl could have this much of an effect on me.-Skylar-SLAP! My cheek was now t
-Skylar-My eyes slowly fluttered open, I looked around and I realised I was no longer in that dark and dirty cell. I was in a white room which I assumed to be a hospital. I looked around the room to see Aurora on the couch next to me, I was hoping it would've been Aspen sitting next to me, holding my hand, waiting for me to open my eyes so he could kiss me."Aspen?" I said to Aurora, my voice coming out raspy."I'll go find him, do you want a glass of water?" I nodded as she walked out of them room.I took of the blanket off of my legs because I was starting to get warm, I gasped at the bandages that covered my legs. You could see the blood that was trying to escape the bandages."H
-Skylar-I walked through the long dark hallway; I didn't know where I was. I could smell chemicals, instantly I could tell I was at the hospital. I walked towards the end of the hallway, finding a room. There was a back faced towards me, a man crying into the girl’s body, I looked closer to see I was on the bed with Aspen next to me. I jerked forward as I felt a hand touch my shoulder, I looked behind me to see my dead cousin, Drake. “Drake?” he nodded, pulling me into a hug. “What’s going on?”"Sky, I don’t have much time but you have to wake up, if you don't bad things are going to happen.""But I want to stay-" he cut me off."With me. I know Sky, how much you miss me, but when you wake up, you're going to be a hybrid. Y
-Skylar-Suddenly, the pain stopped and everything around me looked completely different. Not in the sense that I was in a new environment, the way I was seeing everything was different. It was like I had a new pair of eyes; everything was much sharper. My nose filled with the most beautiful scent, cinnamon, my nose followed the scent, landing on Aspen. I looked at him, only to see him looking at me with complete and utter shock. I tried to get out some words, wanting to ask what was wrong, but nothing came out apart from a howl. Why was I howling?I followed Aspen’s eyes to see he was gesturing me to look into the mirror, I slowly made my way, unable to walk, falling to the ground. My face landed right in front of my hairy hands, hairy? I looked at my hands in confusion, these weren’t my hands. I looked up to see I was in front of the mirror, except it wasn’t me in front of the mirror, it was a wolf. I looked at myself in shock, how did
-Aspen- It was all my fault she was a vampire and werewolf, she was a hybrid because of me. I forced her to kill someone, I was selfish. I didn’t deserve her; she was better off without me. I had been ignoring her for the past few days, I had to distance myself from her, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t watching her. I had been watching as Aurora and Jaxson helped control her vampire side, and Isabelle helped control her werewolf side. The full moon was coming up, I knew she would be turning, she would need me, need me to help with the pain. But I just couldn’t give her the satisfaction of having me there. She needed to hate me so that she could distance herself from me as well. “Your highness, Miss Skylar was asking for you.” The guard told me, I nodded in response and watched as he closed the door after leaving. -Skylar- “We need to go out Miss I’m too busy for the poor.” Ryder’s voice shot through the phone. “Ry, I’m so sorry, I
