“Dinner over bonus and promotion?” Ryzen’s eyes were sparkling as he nudged me. “What’s in you, Izobel?”
“Would you go out with him again, Izobel?” asked Asia as we all prepared to return to our office.
I glanced at Kevin, who was still talking with his team, and he seemed to know I was looking at him. He glanced my way, nodded as he acknowledged me, and smiled. Heat crept my face, causing my cheeks to turn apple red.
“Izobel,” Ethan called, and he didn’t need to finish what he wanted to say. I turned to Asia and Ryzen. “Go ahead.”
Ryzen rolled his eyes. “Let me borrow your beauty and charisma for one day, Izobel. Just one day.”
“You’re crazy,” I muttered, shaking my head as I laughed at him. “See you later.”
I walked towards Ethan, and though I wanted to avoid him, I was curious
(Izobel’s POV)“Izobel,” Ethan called my name again.“Did you do that again on purpose?” I whimpered, looking down and closing my eyes to avoid the sight of the blood, but I knew he did not wipe it yet because I could still smell it. My nostrils lustfully told me to taste it.“No,” Ethan said in a serious voice. “Do you want it, Izobel?”I shook my head, trying to think of my favorite food, the ones my mom cooks, and not his blood. The scent became stronger when Ethan moved to my side.“Izobel, open your eyes,” He uttered, taking a paper towel behind me to wipe the blood. “Doing that is scarier, you know.”I smirked as I opened my eyes.He hissed when he felt the sting when wiping it. Even my body jerked when his body jolted, and his lips twitched.“Does it hurt?” I asked worriedly. Though I know it was just a tiny cut, it
(Izobel’s POV)My eyebrows shot up when Mirela sat in Ethan’s lap and kissed him on his lips. I was just glad I didn’t have the power to shoot arrows at people using my eyes because if I had, I would have hit my target with blazing arrows. I glared at them with hatred as they kissed.Mirela, not minding Amber and Janice, arched her body to him.‘Is she a good kisser, Ethan?’ I hissed, my eyes squinting as I watched her devouring his lips.Ethan seemed to choke. He straightened up, coughing and pushing Mirela away gently.She sneered and sat in the space where I was sitting a while ago. “What kind of boyfriend are you, Ethan? Do I really need to set an appointment with my fiancé?” she complained and looked dagger at his secretary.Janice cringed leered at her before turning her back at everybody.He forced a smile and stood up. ‘Where are you?’
(Ethan’s POV)I have been staring at Rodriguez’s main door for a few minutes now, but every time I attempted to knock, I stopped myself, remembering how much I hurt Izobel. Asia and Ryzen could not tell her whereabouts after the meeting. Janice reviewed the CCTV cameras many times, but she couldn’t find traces of Izobel leaving the building.My heart stopped beating for a second when the door opened.It was Alaric who opened the door. “If you’re expecting the door will open magically, it’s not going to happen, Ethan.”I half-smiled at him and entered the foyer as he gestured his hand, telling me to come inside.“If you’re looking for Izobel, she’s in her bedroom, moping about something,” He shared, pressing his lips as he suppressed a smile. “Amber told me everything that happened, Ethan,” he said as he led me to th
(Ethan’s POV)The sun had just set, but no Izobel came to the tent. Since I came back here, I knew this tent out in the woods was her sanctuary I had intruded on. Despite that, she allowed me to set my foot here, which has become our meeting place. Sighing deeply, I went out of the tent and sat on the folding chair where I would usually see her sitting, wondering why she would always face this direction. The chair has never moved in any direction like it has been fixed here.Sitting on the chair, I finally understood why she loved it here. My mouth half-opened as I gasped, seeing the beauty of the sun slowly hiding in the sky. The shutting out of light exploded the sky with vibrant colors of orange, golden-yellow like Izobel’s eyes, and red, looking like fire like what I was feeling for her.If Amber
(Ethan’s POV)Izobel threw her head back to look at my face. She licked her lips, still tasting my blood. “And you are now mine, Ethan Wilson!” She said, but I could read confusion, excitement, and fear in her eyes.What did she see?Did Izobel know I love her more than she loves me?My lips molded into hers, challenging her into a deeper kiss as I unfastened her bra, freeing her breasts. I heard her gasp as my hand slid down her mounds, touching and cupping each breast lovingly. My mouth started nipping her earlobe, causing her to sigh in pleasure, but I didn’t stop. I slid down to her neck, playfully biting and licking her neck down to her shoulder.“I won’t stop until I taste you and make you completely mine, Izobel,” I whispered in her ear. “Then don’t stop, Ethan. I’m begging you, please, don’t you dare stop.
(Izobel’s POV)Something magical… something scary, happened.When I opened my eyes, I was in Ethan’s arms, and he was sleeping like any ordinary human should be. He was breathing evenly, but there was something in him that I could not understand. We were like fighting for dominance over something, and he won fairly, but how?The slashes on my tent were proof that my claws dug into his skin as I reached my climax many times, causing me to panic and check his body, but just like my bite, he has healed completely. I breathed out in relief.I got up, put on my clothes, and went out of my ruined tent, running, reaching the house in a few seconds, and sneaking in the backdoor in the kitchen, but before I could get into my bedroom, my mother blocked my way, startling me.“Something startled my daughter,” s
(Ethan’s POV)“Ethan for breakfast? Was he on the menu?” Connor said, not smiling, but I knew he was only joking, trying to scare me. He pulled a chair for Deidra, and when she was seated, he sat down quietly.Izobel sat silently in her usual seat, not smiling, and I didn’t know why it bothered me that she was quiet. I reached for her hand, wanting to let her know I was here.‘Is everything alright, Izobel?’ I asked, and she looked at me, forcing a smile as she nodded.‘Just scared,’ she answered, lowering her gaze as her parents walked into the kitchen.‘Me, too.’ I pressed my lips, suppressing a chuckle. I would probably not walk alive in the kitchen as Connor fixed his eyes on me.“Good morning!” Amber chimed
(Ethan’s POV)Nolan was surprised to see me early this morning in his apartment. He was still in his pajama when he opened the door. Leaving the door ajar, I followed him to the kitchen after closing the door behind me. Just like me, he lived alone in his apartment.“Is everything alright?” he asked, glancing at me as he brewed coffee. “You’re early. Something wrong?”I nodded, then shook my head, causing Nolan to chuckle.“Something happened between you and Izobel?” he asked again, getting the cups from the cupboard. He tapped the countertop as he waited for the coffee maker to finish its task. “Should I buy a new coffee maker?” Nolan tried to break the silence, but my mind seemed to have wandered far away.“Nolan, should we go back and check what’s this cou
