Sara hasn’t been herself the past few days. She’s been quiet and in her head a lot.
I’m not sure what to do to snap her out of it.
I took her to dinner the other night, and she enjoyed herself. But something was missing in her smile.
I know she has a lot on her mind with Bastian, but there’s something she’s not telling me.
The worst thing is how Sara avoids me whenever she can. We share a bed, but she turns away from me, though I wrap my arm around her while we sleep.
Sara sits next to me during breakfast, but she doesn’t speak to me or anyone else.
Sara avoids him at all costs, going so far as to rush off in the other direction when she sees him coming.
I pace Orrin’s office, biting the pad of my thumb and wondering what I did wrong.I know that I haven’t been much of a mate the past few days, but I didn’t mean to hurt Leander. I didn’t realise that I was being so quiet, and I sure didn’t mean to ignore his concerns.All Leander has tried to do is be there for me.He took me to dinner the other night, we watched movies together, and even went for a long walk in the forest. I didn’t say much either of those times because I didn’t know what to say.When Leander suggested that we allow our wolves to run free together, I didn’t answer him. I stared at him for a moment, then shook my head.Leander tried to explain how important it was for his wolf and mine to run together. They needed to bond and even mate t
Blood flows down my throat, and I try not to moan in delight.It’s been a long time since I was able to drain a person. Leander likes to keep control, and I like to pounce when he loses it.Lorcan can get Luther to drop his guard much more quickly, especially now. The fool found his mate but won’t claim her.Something about Omega and slave, but I think it has more to do with Lorcan. I imagine Luther won’t claim whoever the person is because he’s afraid of what Lorcan might do.We all know that Lorcan would do anything to get a body of his own and how angry he becomes when it doesn’t happen.Do I think Lorcan would kill Luther’s mate in anger?Without a doubt, and he won’t even feel sorry about it later.
I feel sick to my stomach.I shouldn’t have let Sterling out, and I will regret it for the rest of my life. Fuck, but I always do because I know my vampire persona is a cunt and a half.As soon as I came to my senses, Luther filled me in on what Sterling and Lorcan had done. It didn’t surprise me when Sterling kills each time he’s active.However, I couldn’t believe what Sterling almost did to Jenna. The girl has never hurt anyone in her life, so why pick on her?I have never thought of an Omega as a slave, and I would never hurt someone like Jenna for the fun of it.Lilly would never have forgiven me if Sterling had hurt Jenna. I’m not sure that Sara will forgive me full stop.Goddess, I am so ashamed of myself!
“I’m so sorry, Jenna.”My heart aches for Jenna and how scared she must have been when Sterling cornered her.What I saw will haunt me forever!“It’s okay,” Jenna smiles as I stroke my thumb over her knuckles.I look down at our entwined hands and sigh.When I brought Jenna back to the mansion, there was no one around, so I brought her up to my room. I couldn’t let her go back to her chores when she was shaking so much.I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t cry when I saw that she was also. I can’t even imagine how scared Jenna was in that situation, and I don’t know how I held myself together.But I knew that I couldn’t let anything happen to this girl. I already feel suc
“You shouldn’t be here,” I mumble while cracking my eyes open.I smile upon seeing Sara smiling at me from her kneeling position in front of me.“Where else would I be?”“Not locked in a cell-like a criminal.”“Right back at’cha,” Sara giggles, then touches my cheek with her fingertip. “Are you okay?”I nod my head.I feel weak from the silver wrapped around my wrists, but the wolf’s bane has dissipated.“I’m so sorry, Leander,” I narrow my eyes as Sara drops her head. “This is all my fault.”“Sara?” She looks at me. “This is not your fault.”&ld
“What’s that?” I ask while pointing to what looks like a talisman in Leander’s hand.“This is my amulet; it’s what enables me to travel through time.”It’s beautiful, gold with rubies encrusted around white diamonds. It looks very expensive, and I’m scared to touch it.“Do you know which point in time you wish to see first?”“The moment I was taken from the forest,” I answer without hesitation.Leander slips the chain around his neck, letting the talisman drop to his chest.He wraps his arm around my waist. With a smirk from his lips and a gasp from mine, Leander pulls me against his body.“Ready?”I nod my head, even
“What the hell is wrong with you?” Dad yells. I scrub my hands over my tired face and sigh. I knew what would happen then Sara and I walked into Dad’s office. He’s pissed at what I’ve done, and he’s not going to shut up until he’s satisfied his words have penetrated my mind. My eyes wander to Sara. She’s sitting on the sofa across the room on Dad’s orders. I’m sitting on a hardback chair in front of his desk. Sara smiles slightly, though I know she’s upset by Dad’s tone. “Do not look at her!” I roll my eyes and look at my father. “First Sterling, now time travelling with your mate?” “I did what I had to do to help Sara.” “You know the rules, Leander. Was being locked
“Is this going to hurt?” Anja smiles at me while shaking her head. “No, sweetheart, it won’t hurt.” Anja takes my hand and leads me over to the sofa of grey. I sit down and let out a breath through my lips. I am so nervous that I’m fighting not to throw up! I want to do this, of course, I do, but I’m scared of what I’ll see. There could be all sorts locked away in my mind that I don’t know of. When Anja came to me this morning and suggested what she could do, I never expected this. Sure, Orrin said he has a way to help me, but delving into my mind? It’s madness! How else am I meant to figure all of this crap out if I don’t let Anja do this? Bastian’s parents are stil
