Four 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
Evelyn’s POVMy heart was pounding hard in my chest before I hear a loud growl making me jump. Then I hear a woman’s voice.“You want to explain why my son is currently destroying the city north of here, Ryland?” The woman sounds young but the authority behind her voice intimidated me. This woman wasn’t to be messed around with.“Evelyn, you may come down,” Ryland yells out to me. I hesitantly get up from my hiding spot. I heard another voice, another woman, her voice softer but easily heard.“Evelyn, who is Evelyn?” the person asks just as I get to the top step. I see two women standing at the bottom of the stairs. Both look to be in their mid-twenties and strikingly similar. Both ha
Evelyn’s POVThaddeus stands before walking to the stairs. His lips never leave my skin until I suddenly feel the mattress under my back and realise we are back in the bedroom. Thaddeus growls. His kisses becoming fiercer, and he devours my skin.“Not so hard,” I scold him when he bites into my shoulder, breaking my skin. Feeling the bed dip, I look up and see Orion watching with a worried look on his face. Ryland, I notice, moves behind Thaddeus and I can feel his worry coming through the bond.“Ow Thaddeus,” I tell him, pushing his face away as his teeth sink into the top of my breast, feeling blood run down the side of my boob and my eyes water from the sting. Gripping his face, I pull his face up, my hands on the side of his face. Thaddeus eyes are pitch bl
Evelyn’s POV“I’m fine, Orion,” I tell him, looking up at him. Orion stares down at me for second before nodding, and I look back at Thaddeus who has devious smirk on his face, making me smile back at him. He kisses me softly before pushing my legs open and resting between them.“No biting,” I warn him, and he chuckles against my lips, deepening the kiss. His tongue plays with mine, fighting for dominance, and I let him take control knowing I won’t win anyway. Thaddeus grips my hips, and I can feel his nails digging into my skin. I push his hand away making him growl softly before he moves lower kissing my breast before sucking my nipple in his mouth making me moan. Orion leans down, seizing my lips and swallowing my moans as Thaddeus moves lower nipping at my hip before settling between my legs. I feel his
