Chapter 40I stand here in the center of the main office frozen, so many questions are racing through my mind. He is looking at me completely frozen as well. I do not know how long we stood there until the shock wore off and one of us thawed the ice. In a matter of seconds, he rushed me and give me a huge embrace. I have not seen my brother in decades, ever since he relocated to America after our father passed away. After several minutes of embracing each other, as long-lost brothers do, we both asked the same question. “My God, how is the possible? we said at the same time, which made us laugh. We used to be so close like this, it feels like nothing has changed, yet I know everything has. Everyone has pass
Chapter 41Later that night, I lay in bed and felt relaxed. More relaxed than I had in a very long time. I felt as if my long-dead heart and lost soul were starting to feel at peace. All these years without my soulmate. So many decades of grief and despair since she was taken from me. It was the first night in so long, I nearly came close to sleeping again. Not humanistic sleeping but a sense of rest that some Vampires are able to obtain. Once this happens, they look asleep but, their mind is in a coma-like state of contentment until they are awakened by their love. I have heard it happening once some Vampires meet their destined soulmate. I have longed for such an experience. I need to keep a sharp eye now, that I have Camille. I am aware tha
Chapter 42Things definitely escalated quicker than I expected but, I would not change it for the world. I have not felt this happy in decades. Even now as I lay here, wrapped up in her arms, caressing her naked back. She sighs as she snuggles further into my side. I cannot believe that after all this time, through all the emotional turmoil I have gone through, she is back in my life!” I know this form is not the true Eliza however, I am still as overjoyed. I would not change anything about Camille, she everything that my wife was plus more. I feel like she connects with me on deeper levels than my wife did. I softly caress he
Chapter 43I held her throughout the night, as her body shook and she sobbed at not only the horrific sight she witnessed but, the slaughter of her apartment. I rocked her all night long until she fell asleep in my arms. I laid her on my bed, and she snuggled into my scent. I watched her sleep for a few hours swearing an oath to protect her. Suddenly, I started to feel a crawling sensation go through me, my gums started to tingle. With horror, I realized then, that the beast at bay has only been laying dormant purposefully. It was waiting to have her here, so it could strike. I wrenched myself away from her, in detest of myself with a heavy heart, how could I have made her feel so safe when I was just as dangerous? Chapter 44The next morning, I lay in bed in her arms again. I feel so blissfully happy however, the horrors of yesterday's events are fresh in my mind. I am ecstatic that she agreed to move in with me so suddenly but, this still spells danger! She is being hunted by that psychotic bitch, because of me! I do not know how she found out about her but, I know secrets never stay hidden in the Vampire world. I need to be honest with her and tell her the truth before Bathilda comes for her. I turn to my side in the bed and watch her dream. I could stare at her sleep forever, she is so beautiful, and I love that she is mine

Chapter 45I continue to drive around Portland, feeling like I am going nowhere, or have nowhere to go. I am terrified to come home and find her gone. I know that she would need her space, she should be a thousand miles away from me. It would be for her safety however, I also wonder what she meant by ‘being watched all her life” did someone already know about her before I did? Was it because she discovered the truth? Either way, that means she has been in danger for years. That is a scary thought, I am thankful that no one has attempted to harm her. I drive back to the penthouse, heart feeling like ice, as I walk inside and find her gone.
I left the Oregon mountain range, with a sole purpose in my mind. I needed to find Camille!I cannot believe that she abruptly left the way she did! No, goodbye, Nothing! The mere idea is painful. Do I mean nothing to her? Was I originally on sex ride all along? No, I cannot think like that! I know that Camille does not willing to do that with her teachers, and I felt Eliza’s pull towards me. What the fuck happened? I am not going to get any answers here! I need to leave. New York City here I come. I arrive back in Portland, I inform my brother of my imminent departure, I inform him that I need to return home, and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. My brother as always is completely understanding and wishes me a safe tri
The look on her face is confused but, with the knowledge that she is in trouble. ‘Yeah, you’re sweet little ass is in trouble for the little stunt you pulled!’ Mr. Gregory turns to the sound, and barks at her “Ms. Williams, clean that mess up!” she immediately lowers herself and does as she is asked. I want to scold him for his attitude but, he is not aware of our history. Instead, I approach her and help her. “Mr. Eldridge, you don’t have to help me,” she says “Mr. Eldridge? Have you forgotten me?” I ask her in a very low voice. She looks at me, she is trying to hide her longing. Eliza is pushing through, I know it.“My office in two hours, you have some explaining to do” I whisper to her. I stand up and walk away.
