CHAPTER EIGHTEEN Gavin's povEleanor looked scared but I'd say she looked more terrified than scared. She seemed to be panicking after I told her all that had happened to Jett at the gym while we were training until he fell and went unconscious."I really hope he's okay, I'm so scared. I feel like I caused this'' she said while grabbing her fingers and wrinkling them tightly in her grip. She was definitely panicking and I had to do something to calm her down.I took her hand so she'd stop fidgeting and it made her look at me. She looked like she was about to cry and her eyes were full of so much fear. It was either she was shit scared for Jett or she already cared about him that much. Well, we were only going to figure that out if we succeeded in waking him up."Look none of this is your fault, you weren't even there when he fell and blacked out so you shouldn't blame yourself okay," I told her and she reluctantly nodded. I smiled and patted her head then brought her closet and hugge
Chapter NineteenEleanor's PovOkay, so the good news was that Alpha Jett wasn't dead, he had collapsed and while I blamed myself for what had befallen him, Gavin tried to convince me otherwise while Zayn rocked and soothed me."I really hope he's okay, I'm so scared. I feel like I caused this' 'I said, grabbing my fingers from Zayn's and wrinkling them tightly in my grip. I was definitely panicking and I didn't know what to do about it. Seeing Alpha Jett, laying down still after the dream I had about us, made my pain and anger increase. Maybe, just maybe if he was awake, he could have done something about it.My train of thought was interrupted when Gavin suddenly took my hand—a gesture he did to stop me from fidgeting. Once our fingers were laced, I looked up at him, with the sole aim of planting my neck on the crook of his neck, crying out my fears and pain. The look on his face was more of pity than concern. I knew my eyes were full of so much fear but I didn't know why. Something
Chapter twenty.Eleanor's Pov"What the hell has come over you Scarlett?" Gavin asked, moving abruptly to her front. Scarlett's eyes immediately turned glassy and because I was too familiar with the shifting processes, I quickly jumped into their middle to stop their feud before they both shifted into their wolf form and started destroying things. "I'm sorry for coming into your lives and causing so much trouble. I'm not sure if Alpha Jett is in this condition because of me but one is sure, I'll never wish him bad." My gaze unconsciously turned to Jett's figure laying on the bed. "If my presence is causing so much trouble then I must leave" Zayn wanted to protest but I cut him off. "But please, let me stay until he wakes or at least find a solution to his illness. He has done too much good for me to leave him at this point. And also because I have nowhere else to go, I need time to plan. So please, instead of fighting because of a low life like me, let's think of ways to revive him.
Chapter twenty oneEleanor’s PovMy countenance fell at the priest's announcement. All the words he said out loud replayed slowly in my head and I couldn't help but blame myself. It was all me! If I hadn't been born, this wouldn't have happened! If I wasn't so clumsy and didn't fall when trying to escape, this wouldn't have happened! If I didn't decide to go to collect fresh air that late at night, this wouldn't have happened! Now, what do I fucking do?Scarlett had warned me. She said I shouldn't be the reason why Alpha Jett is lying unconsciously on the bed and now I was in for it. Subconsciously, I began to fiddle with my fingers as I tried to contain the tears that had welled up in my face. After about a minute of fiddling and gasping for air, a tear broke down, and then another and then another and before I could stop what I thought was the last one from spilling, my face began a mess of flood. I turned my face to the wall as I silently cried, covering my mouth to prevent my cr
CHAPTER TWENTY TWOLuca's POVAfter high priestess Imogen's declaration, I was at a loss for words. Jett indeed reduced me, but I didn't regret it. Revenge is served better cold I tell you and most times too an add-on in the form of toppings isn't a bad idea. Go extra if you must! Jett dared with me and now he would suffer the consequences of his action. I know by now, that the rest of his cabinet must have found out I was the one behind his sudden blackout and the remedy to revive him. Surely, they must come to me! They would ask and beg me for pity on him but I'd refuse. When I woke earlier this morning, I realized that Eleanor wasn't with me and hit me hard and square on my face. But the fact that the reason behind her sudden departure from my life was on his bed begging for death made the anger in me pass away in less than a split second.I swam through my thoughts before I decided to go get some work done in my office. As I left my bedroom, each step I took made me seem closer t
CHAPTER TWENTY THREEEleanor’s pov"Ma'am" a soft voice sounded outside my door. Reluctantly, I opened my eyes and that was because whether it was from a milestone or from the middle of a very hot wet dream, I’d remember the owner of that voice. It was Sarah, the only person I had let up in my room since that ugly incident at Jett’s bedroom. It’d been four days since Jett fell into a spiritual coma and for all four days except the first day, Sarah had been my company since I shut out the remaining members of this household. I asked her to come inside of course but when she did, she remained at the threshold looking at me as though a cat had got her tongue."Speak Sarah!" I demanded."The beta and the gamma had asked me to inform you that dinner is ready and that you are to come down to eat"“You know more than anyone else in this house that I wouldn’t so why did you bother? Tell them I said I’m not hungry and that I’m grateful for them”“Please ma’am. I cannot return to them without
Chapter twenty threeEleanor's Pov I stood at the full-length mirror in my room, wondering how life turned so bad. I couldn't help the emotions running through my heart and settling in my stomach, self-pity. Surprisingly, I missed him. I missed Jett so much and for each second that passed with his eyes closed, it pissed me and I blamed myself all over again...I just finished having my bath and standing in front of the mirror, and looking at myself made me miss my mum. "I miss you, Luna," I said to myself in the mirror, seeing her in me. I grew up to be a replica of my mother. We had the same icy blue eyes and long wavy natural brownish-black hair and skin color. Holding the crescent moon pendant she had given me before dying, I closed my eyes and allowed the Cool breeze to carry my wishes to her. I was truly exhausted from all that was happening…I was physically and mentally tired and I needed her to help me. My mother was known for her great ability to heal people. She wasn’t a L
Chapter twenty five Alpha Jett’s PovFor the first time in what seemed like forever, I felt alive. It was like I was in a cage, hearing the chirping noises of birds as they flew around but no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t see, feel or touch beyond those noises. The fragrance of sweet flowers filled my nostrils but that was that for it. I tried lifting my hands to touch the prettiest bird and flower I’d ever seen but I was immobile. I tried to talk but I was mute and my throat felt dry. Then suddenly, after so many days of looming in the darkness, a hand reached out to pull me out but no matter how the person tried, I always slipped from its grip until a few moments after when I felt a soft foam-like material pressed water into my mouth. I felt alive instantly and the dryness in my throat lessened. And surprisingly too, the water tasted delicious and familiar. Yes, the taste of water should be familiar considering how often we consume it but what about delicious? Water was suppo
