After having breakfast for dinner, I head into the lounge room. Sitting on the couch, Orion follows me out before sitting next to me. “We should head to bed soon,” Orion tells me.
Thaddeus and Ryland walk out and head upstairs and I see Orion watch them go. “Come on, you should sleep,” he says, and I shake my head not wanting to go to bed. I definitely didn’t want to sleep in a bed with Thaddeus and Ryland. I had spent most of the day and night asleep.
“I’m not tired, you go to bed” I tell him. Orion chuckles to himself, making me look at him. “What?” I ask, wondering what he thought was so funny.
“Nothing, I don’t sleep. I wish I could, I miss sle
Evelyn’s POVWaking up, I roll before squealing when I feel myself falling, my eyes snapping open. Just before hitting the floor, an arm snakes around my waist, pulling me back and onto their chest. My heart races at the sudden shock of nearly falling off and then races harder when I realise, I am now laying on top of the devil himself. My eyes open to see Thaddeus with eyes half open watching me. He yawns, and I can tell I woke him. What I don’t remember was getting in a bed with him.I could feel Thaddeus breathing change as he awoke completely. A smile on his lips. He almost looked human in this moment. All traces of the monster I know is gone. Just hypnotic green eyes I could get lost in and full lips only centimetres away from mine. “Good morning, Evelyn,“ he whispers watching me closely. His hand on my back rubbing my s
Thaddeus POVShe was fine, I could feel her through Ryland. She felt safe and liked what he was doing to her, and a little shocked and uneasy at her reaction to us. But I could tell she was new to pleasure. She wanted to know what it felt like, her inexperience showing with the way she didn’t know what she was feeling, just that she liked it. That’s why I asked. Why asked if she wanted him to stop, I could still feel her fear of us, but our hands overrode it, touching her. I could smell her arousal perfuming the air, she was so lost in the feeling of us she hadn’t noticed Orion watching from the armchair. He wanted her not to fear us, so he gave us this moment with her.Then she froze, her entire body locked up when Ryland pushed his finger inside her. I pulled back slightly and the look on her face was like she went somewhere else
Evelyn’s POVFour years, it’s been four years since I escaped that house of horrors and yet the memories have come back to plague me, hanging over my head like a dark cloud. Four years I have shoved it to the back of mind, yet now it has come back with a vengeance. Making me relive every minute. Was it because of that night in the alleyway? Did that undo everything I worked so hard to suppress? I have always suffered with anxiety, always found my way back from it. But now my walls were crumbling, and I was killing myself trying to rebuild them back to the way they were.Everything I worked so hard to leave behind me now coming forth in the worst way possible. Haunting not only my mind but my body. Panic attacks, something that becomes crippling, the feeling of complete dread threatening to consume you, make you believe it is the end and
Orion POVWalking out of the bathroom, I slip into the walk in. Evelyn’s scent is strong in the room, and I quickly chuck some close on before going to walk out when I notice something move out of the corner of my eye on the bed. Walking over, I feel relief flood into me when I see Evelyn is asleep. Thaddeus green eyes stare up at me, and he shrugs, shocked himself. He moves over, pulling her with him and making room for me. I lay next to her, feeling relaxed. Her racing heartbeat and frantic emotions have had all of us on edge. Thaddeus the most because he hasn’t fed, and I could tell he wants to mark her. Evelyn has relaxed, and I know it’s because she is allowing him to be close to her.Thaddeus is usually a man of few words. He usually takes what he wants without question or permission, yet the last few days he has been on edge wanti
Evelyn’s POVWaking up, I am pressed against Thaddeus, his hand in the centre of my back. I felt wide awake, like I had the best sleep and felt completely rested. Sitting up, I find Thaddeus is the only person left in the room. Thaddeus is watching me and he looked like he had been awake for a while.Going to get off him, his arm tightens around me. “I didn’t want to wake you,” he says, and I notice a book beside him. Proving, he had been trapped under me for a while.“What time is it?” I ask.“Little after lunch time,” Thaddeus answers.“I should let you get up,” I tell him, trying to shift off him.
Evelyn’s POVMy head felt foggy from his bite, and I could feel a strong urge to fall asleep. My eyes fluttered closed as I swayed on my feet. The last thing I remember is the tingles spreading all over me as someone tried to steady me on my feet before feeling strong warm arms wrap around me as I plunged into darkness my body succumbing to exhaustion.**********************************************************I knew I was dreaming; I knew because I had already been here before, already knew what happe
Evelyn’s POV“I thought you said Lana wasn’t there,” Thaddeus asked over my shoulder.“She was there. She tried to put me out, she burnt her hands terribly,” I answer, my heart pounding in my chest. Remembering the smell of my burning flesh and my hair, so pungent I could almost taste it in the back of my throat, making me want to gag.“I don’t want you take it away.” Orion watches me confused. I thought I wanted that, but I didn’t want to forget Lana. Why I did it, it made it easier to life with what I did.“I don’t understand?” Orion said, moving closer, his head lying next to Thaddeus’s leg as he lays down.
Evelyn’s POVWe spent the rest of the day watching movies. Thaddeus, though, I could tell was slightly off, and Orion and Ryland kept sending him nervous glances which I couldn’t understand. You could feel the negative energy in the air. When we finished dinner, his entire body was shaking and his eyes flickered between black and green frighteningly. Orion abruptly standing up, giving me a nervous glance before gripping Thaddeus and tugging him outside. Grabbing everyone’s dishes, I walk into the kitchen and start stacking the dishwasher. Ryland followed in behind me and helped me.“What’s wrong with Thaddeus?” I ask while rinsing a plate.“He will be fine. The darkness becomes a little too much sometimes,” he answers, not adding anything else
