"You must be delusional", I whispered, scoffing even as my heart fluttered around, in contrast to the frown on my face."Aren't we all?", Jacob bit back in a low voice, his eyes glinting in the dim limo."I'm not your property. I'm no one's property", I said firmly, "Get that through your dark skull".Jacob huffed out a laugh, his eyes growing hazy, "Your fire always manages to turn me on. Every fucking time"."Now, aren't we forgetting another tiny detail?", He said, leaning forward and leveling his eyes with mine.I glared as he smirked, "Someone is in debt of two hundred million and a hundred thousand dollars"."Then find that someone", I seethed, gritting my teeth in anger."And here I thought blood was thicker than water", Jacob mumbled, chuckling to himself."Yeah you would know", I jibed, wondering where all my nervousness had gone."I do know that blood is thicker than water. That's why I'm here""You want to hold the debt to me?". "You have an army of techies at your disposal
Lanie came with three dresses and her bag full of makeup, she was a life saver."Choose your poison", Lanie announced, gesturing to the three dresses she had spread on the bed when she had arrived."I kinda like the blue one but the red would be fire on her especially with her eyes", Sacha chimed in, staring at the dresses."The red it is", I said, picking up the red dress from the bed and holding it to my body in front of the full length mirror, admiring how it looked on my skin. The dress was a simple and short bodycon dress with spaghetti hand for sleeves and a push up bra that did exactly what it meant, pushed up the breast.I put on the dress, feeling eyes on me all the way."Are you taller than me?"Lanie questioned, her face scrunching up in a frown as she studied the dress on me."How the heck are you taller than me?""Don't hate the game, Lanie", I whispered, laughing as I twirled around in the mirror.I was ready, my hair was curled up, exposing my neck as tendrils of curls
The voices woke me upThere was an annoying female one that was panicky and high pitched like it couldn't go lower and if it went any higher, the voice would become a screech.There was a male one that sounded lazy, telling the woman to shut it or he was going to throw her out.The third one was one I recognized, one I recognized very well, Connor's. I opened my eyes, and behold there he was, standing above me with a scary smile on his face."You're awake", he announced and two other sets of eyes turned to me sharply. I had been tied to a chair, I noted as my arms hissed in sharp pain when I tried to flex it and my eyes went round the room. A basement of some kind, I wondered if I was still in the house of the Kemlers"What do you want?" I said calmly, hiding my panic behind a firm voice.The woman scoffed and my eyes narrowed on her, her fake extensions obvious to everyone within a five feet radius."What I want is quite simple, Dalia", Connor said, catching my attention as he cro
"Well, I wouldn't say betrayed", Manuel corrected as we all stared at him. He was a vampire alright, I thought in my head, the way he grabbed people's attention."More like put off, all because of some silly mistake", He continued, pacing in front of me. "Jacob can be very temperamental"."Why are you telling me all this?" I asked with a straight face, masking the fear in my voice with indifference."So you would see I have no other reason but to do this", Manuel answered, like it should be that easy for everybody to understand."I was cursed because of that silly mistake and now I have to score the earth only at night because I can't even get a fucking daylight ring""How do I fit into all this?", I bit out. "I don't have his blood in me"."You do and now I'm tired of this chit chat", Manuel countered, exposing his fangs in a sardonic smile."About time", the man by the door groaned."Wait", Connor chimed in, "you remember the bargain right?"Manuel arched a very bushy eyebrow, "Th
"What do you mean by the last time I was here?", I repeated, my voice sounding brittle to my ears. Elda kept silent, looking round the room for imaginary signs of dust."I asked a question", I bit off. "What do you mean by the last time I was here?""Have I been here before?"In all honesty, I considered being less harsh, seeing as Elda looked like she wanted to cry but I had to. I needed to know if Jacob had taken my memories again."Elda", I sighed. "I just need to know""There's nothing to know from my end, miss", Elda responded wearily. "It was a slip of my tongue"."It wasn't", I argued, beginning to feel frustrated. "And stop talking to me like I'm a child""I'm very sorry, Miss"."Oh come on now", A voice sounded, the accent unrecognizable as the door swung open, revealing Sydney in an all black garb, her pose relaxed and yet still daunting."Why are you shouting at poor Elda?"I glared at her, "Where is Jacob?".Sydney's silver eyes gleamed, "Just because I act nice, it does
The dreams didn't stop, it only became more vivid.Jacob took my left nipple in his mouth, his hand kneading the other breast as I groaned in pleasure, my body arching even as his other hand held me to the bed.Tweaking, nipping and kneading, he hadn't even touched me and I was one second away from release.A knock sounded in my dreams, the sound of the door rattling, shattering my sexual haze.The knock sounded again, more insistent this time and I opened my eyes to the sun light streaming in from my bedroom window. I groaned, sitting up and rubbing my eyes as the knock sounded for the third time."I'm coming", I muttered, moving to the door to unlock it. I hadn't even known when I had locked it.Kane stood on the other side of the door, his smile spreading from one corner of his mouth to the other."So, Connor?", He asked as his eyebrows wiggled, he stepped in, closing the door behind him as I fell back into the bed, hugging my pillow.I hadn't told any of them what had happened af
The bots made another move three days later, on an early Saturday morning they locked on their targets, invading the house of two of the top council members on the vampire side holding hostages and threatening to kill them as they went live.They had declared war.They hacked into every audio source just like how they had done the last time, connecting to everyone through their phones, televisions, even smart watches.Lanie and I sat in her parlor with her mum and her twin , our eyes glued to the television as the bots rounded up the vampires from each house in one place."Why aren't they doing anything?", Luther shouted at the television, his voice coated in frustration. "I thought the vampires had the advantage of being faster and shit, what's going on here?""Something's not right", I whispered, and all eyes turned to me."See", I pointed to the television, "Their eyes are all going to something in the corner there.""Something that's giving them this look of disbelief and fear"."
"What?", I stuttered after a moment of being tongue tied."I believe you aren't hard of hearing", Jacob drawled, his words dripping in a hard tone and undiluted sarcasm.My eyes narrowed into slits as my desire turned into hot anger, "You have an army of men at your disposal. What do you need me for?""The dry company", Jacob mumbled in a dry tone."What?", I asked. "I resigned", I enunciated, "in case you've forgotten"."Or do you need me to help you look up the word, 'resignation'?""You can't lie and your jokes are stale", Jacob countered, his eyes lighting up as he smirked. My heart skipped a bit as my eyes widened. I felt like I was talking to Vanir or Vanir was talking to me. Anyway, Jacob had showed a bit of him. Or I was just imagining things again."If you have no other thing to say to me, please unlock the door and let me out", I said calmly, clenching my hands by the sides of my legs."I have plenty to say to you", Jacob responded, his velvet voice reaching out huskily to
