"My Fate is a curse. I didn't ask to be a slave of an immortal. I didn't ask for his branding. And I didn't ask for my mate to hunt me down and try to remove it." They say time can be the biggest punishment. Especially when Time is a powerful immortal who granted me time travelling abilities in return for a permanent brand on my skin. A sigh of my commitment to him. However, my mate, an Alpha of a powerful Pack will do anything to exterminate all of Time's Travellers. Me included. And as much as I run, I can't escape that fate awaiting me. An underground ring where travellers are purchased and used in a sick game. A game of torture, where my only escape may be through the man who created it.View More
~KezziahNine months later.Today, things are falling into place.The house Alden and I have been working on for months has finally been completed. It’s a beautiful home we created in a small village just on the border of the Wisdom Pack. We could have moved into Alden’s own home, however, I didn’t like how isolated it was, and I wanted a fresh start after this past year.Alden had agreed. Recently, his sickness has been triggered, and he’s been deteriorating. It’s been painful to see, but now, he has a home he can be where he has no issues. And I can be here with him.“Fina
~KezziahTime raises his eyebrow at me skeptically.He might be trapped behind a magical barrier within a cave like prison, however, it hasn’t yet scared him beyond a small irritation. He knows he has more power than us. Maybe it’s equal to his brothers, but he has confidence. I’m going to sit here in the cold until I can see all that confidence seep away into nothing.“Take away the brand and lose all connection to you?” Time says, tilting his head to the side, mocking confusion. I roll my eyes, knowing he couldn't care less about that. “You know I like you so much, Kezziah.”Alden steps up, close to the barrier, but not close enough to step over
~KezziahThe plan has been decided without me.Luckily, Alden gave me another night with him before he approached me with it. Clearly Thought had been to visit him after I was taken by Time. The immortal would have informed my mate on the perfect plan to get Time alone to admit defeat and remove the brands from us, and hopefully everyone else.However, all I could care about that night was the feeling of my mate against me, his warmth, his scent, and the way he whispers comforting words in my ear. I told him about what happened to Rosie, and thankfully, he understood.By the time morning came, I was prepared for what need to be done. It didn’t take much to summon Thought, since
~KezziahTime greeted me in a local bar once I had thanked Rosie and left.It is almost empty in here considering the time of night. Once man sits in the corner of the room, sipping on his drink drunkenly. Time sat in a booth, holding a drink filled with a bronze liquid full of froth. He raises a dark eyebrow at me expectantly, waiting for me to share with him whether I succeeded or not.“It’s done,” I mutter, falling into the otherside of the booth tiredly. I’m empty after doing that, after seeing her in person and commiting what would normally be a heinous crime were it not for an Immortal like Time.“Thank you,” he murmurs, taking a sip of his drink.
~KezziahI know Time is insane. But this insane?Looking at him, I’m trying to judge how serious he is being. His expression is stern and solemn, as if he is regretful for this decision. However, it is such a wild request I can’t imagine it being anything other than a test. Unless of course, I gave Time the benefit of the doubt once, but now I see the monster he truly is.“I’m not killing someone for you,” I growl under my breath. I’m starting to shiver under this cold. I wasn’t prepared for it at all, as it melts into my shoes and pants. “I’ll find another way to get rid of this matebond.”
~KezziahIt didn’t take Time less than a second to grab my hand and vanish us away.Shutting my eyes, I prayed he would take me somewhere safe. Somewhere I have a chance of escaping from. Because right now, the last thing I’m wanting to do is cling to Time’s arm, being completely at his mercy. How did he even find me? He must have been waiting to track me the moment I stepped off of Alden’s property. Damn it.As the world builds itself back around us, the transportation coming to a close, Time lands gracefully on the ground, while I stumble a few steps before he grabs my arm to stop me. The moment I notice his assistance, I jerk away from him.“For a mom
~Kezziah Naturally, Cian got invited in. He sauntered into the house, shoulders back, gait triumphant. Sitting down on the couch, he motions for us to sit in front of him, that smirk touching his lips not fading for a moment. I’m nervous about why he is here, however, I sit down regardless, curious about what he is going to reveal. I have a feeling it’s going to ruin my life. Beside me, I can feel Alden’s tension. He doesn’t like having an immortal sitting in his home; especially a Sin. I can tell he is as curious as me, though. He’s been looking at me strangely, wondering why Cian knows I exist. “Well, is someone going to sa
~KezziahAlden and I stumbled to bed around midnight.Giddy and glowing, I fall into the sheets alongside my mate, still warm inside from talking to him all night. We spoke about a million things from Pack politics to our own personal philosophies. Whatever magical force deemed us worthy to be together did a good job, considering how well we seem to get along.If only we could continue this cycle forever, not having to worry about all the drama with Time and with Alden’s sickness. Any moment it could trigger and I could lose my mate. It takes all of my willpower to shove that thought down and not consider it.
~KezziahIt felt good sleeping next to Alden.Sunlight streams in through the curtain, rousing me gently from my sleep. Stretching out, I bask in the feeling of warmth and comfort, feeling better than I ever have waking up before. When I glance over, I see Alden and his glistening navy blue eyes looking down at me, admiration and affection reflecting off them.“Oh, I’m sorry,” I say drowsily, realising last night I had snuck into his room, unable to help myself. I just wanted to see what it would feel like to have my mate by my side. And after Thought visiting, I’ve been nervous to spend the night alone. “I didn’t mean to
