And she actually even thought of that compliment in such an intense situation..."Get inside your damn car and lock it!" Jacob screamed at her as he threw Jaden to the ground.One hand of Jacob restrained Jaden's arm while the other hand was strangled around Jaden's neck. Jaden struggled to stand up and, in a moment, the two switched positions. Jacob is already under while he is still choking Jaden. Jaden squeezed Jacob's jaw and forced the mouth open. Jaden's mouth opened and something like white smoke was coming out of Jacob's mouth. Jaden landed one more on Jacob's stomach and Jacob moaned as his mouth continued to hang open. Claire doesn't understand but she has a feeling that she should stop the two from whatever is happening between them.Instead of getting inside the car, she turned around. Claire looked around and looked for anything to smack Jaden with. She found a rather large chunk of rock. She took it and patted Jaden on the shoulder. To her surprise, the man didn't move e
Claire was distracted when she felt the light hit her face. It was coming from the left window and the light was hitting her directly.She suddenly turned around and looked around. She's still in the car. Did she get home from the province and was tired from driving so she decided to sleep first? Or is she still stranded in the lazy shortcut? But that was not the last scene in her memory but the fight between the two men.Claire gasped when she noticed the driver's seat. There is a sleeping man. It's Jacob!"What is he doing there? And what happened last night? What happened to Jayden? How did the two ends up wrestling?" Claire asks herself.Again, Claire wanted to panic as she remembered the incredible scenes. It's impossible for the two to float in the air while fighting. It was probably just brought on by her dizziness when her head hit the front of the car. That's right. It was impossible that her last memory was correct.Claire approached the sleeping man. He looks pale. If his l
Claire should feel creepiness at the idea that Jacob actually is stalking her. But that was not the feeling that invaded his personality. Knowing that Jacob was right there beside her, Claire felt secure and safe. Because she knows someone will always show up to protect her."You're so ungrateful," Jacob said as if disappointed.Claire felt guilty afterward."Anyway, I've been paid for helping me learn to use a phone. So now, it's quit. I don't owe you anymore. I guess you can drive back to the city by yourself. You're on the national highway already." Jacob suddenly got out of the car and left her there.Claire was just stunned. Jacob quickly entered the wooded part of the land and completely disappeared from her sight. Where the man went, she had no idea. She also couldn't think of a reason why he entered that wooded area which, as far as she knew, it was private property based on the signage.Claire blinked for a moment and tried to bring herself back to the present. Whatever Jacob
"This is just a dream. Later, I'll wake up in my bed and remember how I got home after my busy schedule today. Right? I didn't see you today. You didn't ask me for coffee and you didn't take me to the rooftop. Right? This isn't happening. I need to wake myself up!" Claire said almost mortified. She sounded crazy. But the few minutes that passed were really crazy. She seems so much has happened.When Claire was about to slap her cheeks again, Jacob stopped her. He had a tight grip on her. His gaze is also dark, a sign that he does not like what he sees."You're right. I didn't ask you to have coffee. Not because I don't like to be with you but because I don't drink coffee," Jacob said as if he wanted Claire to understand. His voice was still cold but not as deep as before. Just smooth and nice to listen to.How could he do that? How is he able to change the timbre of his voice without any effort? Is that one of his talents?"Right. And I'm not even talking to you now. I need to wake up
Claire blinked. Why is there a troubled feeling inside her chest just because of that idea? Why does she like the idea that Jacob is protecting her? And why does she feel like she's been with him for a long time even though she hasn't?Even though there were many times that they were together, whether it was intentional or not, the fact that Jacob was still a stranger was still there. She didn't know anything about him aside from his name, that he lived in a rich subdivision and that he was ignorant when it came to modern gadgets. That was it. Claire could not use that as a basis to remove him from the category of being a stranger."But... why me? How... I mean, we didn't know each other," Claire asked confused but got no answer.Jacob broke the long silence as if he couldn't stand it anymore. "It just happened…" he said as if he had trouble saying the words. Even he seemed confused. "I'm just curious about you because I couldn't compel you. I can't hear what you're thinking.""So, va
Claire waited for Jacob to kiss her... she waited… but minutes passed and no kiss happened. Instead, she felt she was transported back to the parking space. She was still confused even until Jacob got her down next to her car. Did she anticipate too much so she regrets not being able to give her what she wanted? "This is goodbye. So, I must do it now." Claire was still motionless until she felt Jacob's fingers on her chin. And before she could react, her lips were greeted by his. Luscious and sensual, passionate and intense, she had tasted the most delicate kiss she could ever taste in her entire life. She thought looking at Jacob's lips was appetizing. She even closed her eyes to feel the sweetness of Jacob's lips. And why does she seem to want to be emotionally disturbed? Why she wanted Jacob's lips? Why she wanted the feeling of his holding her? She almost wanted to pray that the moment wouldn't end. Why did Jacob have that kind of effect on her? Is it because he is a vampire? A
Before Claire could struggle she heard a familiar voice. And the beating of her heart suddenly became erratic. Maybe because her heart clearly recognized the voice... and the aura. "Jacob!" Claire was about to look behind when she felt someone pull her arm away from Jayden. She barely noticed the appearance of two more men who looked like Jacob and were about to attack Jayden. But Jacob suddenly stopped the two. "Let's give him a fair fight. One on one. They might challenge for a rematch again if they say the fight was unfair. You know, bros, losers can't accept their defeat," Jacob said confidently. Jayden's jaws clenched which made Claire worry. Jayden was triggered to fight to his heart's content. If creatures like them even have a heart. And if that's the case, Jacob will probably be in for a tough fight. She felt Jayden's strength was different. Claire can see and feel it in the intense anger in his red eyes. It's like it's on fire. Jayden seems to be able to swallow anyone.
Jacob sighed and approached Claire who was sitting in the driver's seat. "I'll take you home," Jacob said. Jacob looked up at her. Claire's eyes filled with confusion and questions. "All of those... that I saw were real? Or am I getting crazy?" Jacob's feelings softened when he saw the confused expression on Claire's face. He grabbed her by her waist and pulled her upright. He smiled at her sparingly and then nodded. "All of it was real." Jacob wants to claim Claire so that he can go back to the way he was before. But his persuasion to be arrogant with the woman has run out. Besides, how can he do that if Claire going to break down at any moment? He knew Claire's mind was strong and would not be easily broken by the shocking sight. But still, he knew that Claire's emotions were weak to absorb shock. What if she turns out to have an internal sickness and just insists on being strong despite the shock? Jacob closes his eyes and just sighs. "What is my connection with you and Jayden
