Sarah yawned openly, stretched her arms then flew upwards in the bed with a large smile on her face. The sun was shining mightily in the sky, the birds were chirping their sweet songs and as for Sarah, you could say she was in a VERY good mood. Ever since that little talk Damon had with her yesterday, she had been going around everywhere with a slight happy skip to her movements.
For some reason, his words had made her feel unusually good. First, he made it known that he wanted her to soften up to him and then, he made it known that he wanted to get closer to her. The difference between the two was hard to realize, but Sarah knew exactly what separated them. When he insinuated that he wanted her to soften up to him, she wasn't really sure if he actually meant exactly that, but when he said he wanted her to act naturally around him, she was entirely sure of it.
Damon Kalesto was actually interested in her...who would've thought?
After Sarah and Alexis retrieved the key from Damon's drawer, Sarah began to move towards the basement, taking one baby step at a time. Within five minutes time, she was standing in front of the basement door with the key wrapped up tightly in her hand. She was dreading meeting Damon at the moment. It was funny how a few moments back, she was gushing about how he was interested in her and now, she was scared shitless to even approach him. Things had changed in that short length of time after one single revelation."You're his mate, he's bound to listen to whatever you say. You just need to convince him! Tell him you'll never forgive him if he hurts me!" Those were the words Alexis had left with her but Sarah wasn't sure she could pull it off. It wasn't as easy as she said.Right now, her whole body was trembling and even her legs were threatening to take off in the other direction. But the only thing that was keeping her standing by the door
When Sarah's eyes fluttered open, she was surrounded by the same darkness that had dwelled even before she blacked out. Her only source of light were the little streaks that escaped through the barred window.Sarah lifted her head a bit and glanced around in confusion. It wasn't until she saw the shackles left on the floor that she remembered the events from a few minutes ago. Fear instantly gripped her, causing her to shuffle to her feet and rush off towards the exit, despite the slight headache she was experiencing.The rogue was nowhere to be seen, but Sarah didn't think too hard on it. All her mind was set on was escaping this frightening place. She snatched the key from the floor as she was passing by it and started up the stairs. Once at the top, she pulled the door open and was ready to make a beeline for her room......but the two figures which stood behind the door, stopped her in her tracks. Damon was standing
Sarah's eyes fluttered open to see a pair of hazel ones staring down at her. Her eyes widened and she shuffled backwards on the cold floor, her back hitting against the hard wall. Pain shot through every fibre of her being at the action, causing her to hunch over slightly.Her head hurt, her limbs hurt and there were even little cuts littering her skin.But her physical pain was a little less intense than her emotional one. Rather than being happy that they shared such a deep connection through their mate bond, she felt irritated. If this mate thing didn't exist then maybe she wouldn't feel so betrayed, wronged and scared. Maybe this wouldn't have even fazed her..."You're awake?" Damon asked, leaning forward over the edge of the bed, his eyes void and as cold as ice. Sarah flinched at the sound of his voice. She tried her best to shrink herself under his stare but Damon seemed to stare harder at her the more she moved,
Sarah sat on the floor, curled up against the wall with her head resting on her knees. She had been in the same position ever since her conversation with Damon. Her eyes were stinging, probably from lack of sleep, but Sarah wouldn't close her eyes. Her mind was too preoccupied.She hadn't slept throughout the night...not even for a second. Aside from thinking about how bad of a life she had, she had also been watching Damon mumbling and shifting around in his sleep. She had no idea what he was dreaming about but she figured he was reliving a bad experience. And though Sarah didn't want to, she still pitied him.Yet the one who needed pity the most was her...Everything was weighting down on her shoulders, she almost felt as if she would black out any minute. Plus, the pain from falling down the stairs still hurt a lot, but not as much. It was quite puzzling though. A fall from that height should've probably broken a few bones or so, but Sarah only fe
"You fooled me!" Sarah spat out each word with all the bitterness overflowing inside her. Her blue eyes were drowning in anger, her chest was heaving up and down rapidly and her jaws were clenched down on her cheeks as she stared at the woman before her. "I trusted you!"Sarah knew that Alexis wasn't an easy one to provoke to guilt but she at least expected her to offer an apology...even if it wasn't genuine. The funny thing was though, Alexis didn't look the least bit guilty. Her hand was digging into her hips as she leaned her weight on her right foot while the other hand was holding a tray filled with fruits. With an unnerving smile on her lips, she outstretched it to Sarah and rose her brow when Sarah only stared down at it without making any move to take it.An abrupt snort happened to leave Alexis's mouth a few seconds later. It seemed to Sarah like she was trying to hold it back but failed to do so. "I was the one who trusted you, Sar
Sarah sat in the back seat of Damon's black Sidan. She had absolutely nothing to do, so she busied herself by fiddling with the chains on her wrist, causing a rattling sound to disperse through the car. When they had gotten in a few minutes ago, Damon had made sure to scoot as far away from her as possible...even if that meant squeezing himself flush against the car door.He didn't want to touch her...not even a small graze. Sarah felt the urge to glare over at him...and she did, but only for a split second. Thankfully, she turned her face away before he could notice it."Need I remind you that you should be on your best behaviour?" Damon asked nonchalantly as he looked out the window. His sharp jawline was displayed openly, rays of sunlight occasionally meeting his skin from the spaces between the tree leaves. They were passing by a long line of green palm trees on both sides. And not a single car drove by them since they started their jour
"Prepare for what?" She mumbled through her lips, still clutching her hands to her chest.Jason was a little...well alot shorter than every other werewolf around. He was even an inch shorter than Sarah and she was barely 5'4. The wind sent strands of his low, frazzled black hair in all directions and his black eyes were small and naturally slitted. Despite how mischievous his appearance looked, he still gave off an amicable vibe. He was probably even the only one at the party who wasn't practically cursing her six feet under with their eyes.It's no wonder why she didn't feel uncomfortable in his presence.A loud smacking sound jerked Sarah out of her thoughts. Jason had smacked Damon on the arm and was now grinning like an idiot, that same knowing look on his face. "She's messing with me, right?"Damon didn't make any move to speak. He simply looked to be awfully surprised to a degree that didn't se
"Refrain from giving him what he wants? I don't understand..." Sarah whispered to him, her eyes looking up at him in interest and eagerness. "What exactly does he want?""Well you know..." Jason smiled, intentionally withholding a direct answer to her question. "What he wants is..." He paused, gesturing with his hands for her to draw closer. Sarah cluelessly followed his instruction, inching closer to him with her ears perked and ready to receive whatever information he had to give."You!" The word reverberated through her ears, followed by an equally loud laughter that belonged to none other than Jason.Sarah pulled away from him quickly and rubbed her ringing ear. 'What the hell's up with this guy?' She asked herself, eying him suspiciously with narrowed eyes and raised eybrows. Damon wants her? Ridiculous! Absolutely ridiculous! Damon has never and will never want her. And even if he did, in what way did he actually w
