AdalynDarkness surrounded me, I could hear some faint noises, but my eyes refused to open. I tried to move any part of my body, but it was useless. I felt another prick in my neck and slowly feeling started to return. I’m not sure how long it took but I was eventually able to open my eyes. The light in the room was blinding. It took a few minutes for my eyes to adjust. “Welcome back to the land of the living.” I tried to move my arms, and when I looked, I realized I was in chains. I pulled on them but there was no slack. It looked like I was in a cell and it had to be underground. There were no windows anywhere. They had spotlights set up with the cords running under the bars at the door. “Don’t even try, believe me you won’t get out of them.” I turned toward the voice, “Want to bet?” “Oh, you are feisty. I like that but no you won’t. They are special just for you.” “Where’s Elodie?” He laughed, “Oh she’s around.” “Who are you.” The man stepped out of the shadows. He looked like he
Rainn I sat at my desk with my head in my hands. My office was trashed, my desk now broken in half. It’s been two weeks since Adalyn and Elodie went missing. That night I woke up out of a deep sleep with a feeling of dread in my stomach. I reached over but Addie was not in bed, her side was cold. I looked at the clock and it said 3:30 a.m. I got out of bed, threw a t-shirt and shorts on, and headed to look for her. She wasn’t in the bathroom, so I went downstairs next. The lights were on downstairs, the tea kettle was on the stove, and her tea was out but she was nowhere to be seen. I heard footsteps on the stairs and turned around to see Mercer. “Have you seen Elodie? I woke up and she’s not in bed.” Now I was starting to panic, both girls were now missing. “Addie wasn’t in bed either but when I came down the stuff for tea was out.” I felt a cool breeze just then and turned toward the patio door. It was open just a crack, which was odd. I pointed to the door and we h
Adalyn We packed up all our things, said our goodbyes to all our new friends and headed for our cars. Ard’al warned us that Oliver had contacted him and that they had tracked Tobias and Octavia to Seattle. “What do you want to bet that they are running to Typhon”, Ezra said. “He will die for what he did to Delilah”, Malik growled. “Ok big boy, calm down. I want to kill him just as bad as you do”, Delilah cooed at him. We loaded up and started the four-hour drive back to Seattle. The ride home was very different, everyone was quiet. Malik and Delilah were cuddled up in the back, Liam was staring out the window, and Rainn was staring forward with his hand on my leg. His thumb was rubbing circles on my thigh and I was starting to fall asleep. “Go ahead my love, I’ll wake you up when we get there.” I curled up in my seat with his hand settled between my thighs and let the darkness take me. “Adalyn we are home”, Rainn said waking me out of my dreamless sleep. He kissed me on the forehead
Adalyn My world stood still when Malik uttered those words. He had killed my father. I just stared at him not knowing what to say or do. I felt a tear slip down my cheek. “Little dreamer, I’m so sorry.” His eyes were pleading with me, I could tell he was in pain. “Tell me what happened. Why did you kill my father?” He took a breath, “At one point in my life Beherit was like a father to me. I worked for him as an enforcer and did everything he asked of me, no questions asked. He told me that he had an enemy that was meddling in his and Apollyon’s business. He gave me an address and a team. We went to the house but only I entered. I had no idea who was in the house or why Beherit had sent me here. Your father attacked me obviously and we fought. When I killed him, I heard your mother scream in agony upstairs. Only then did I realize what I had done. I went upstairs and found your mother clutching you to her chest. She was begging me to spare you.” The tears were coming faster hearing t
Adalyn When I woke up, I had a horrible headache and was pinned on the bed. I felt the warmth and knew that it was Rainn. Then the memories hit me, I panicked. Rainn must have felt it run through our bond because he was immediately awake and holding me. I looked at him, “Rainn what did I do?” “My love you are ok, Theo and Ard’al seemed to have figured out who and what you are.” I pushed him off and ran into the bathroom. I did my business and splashed water on my face. I had no idea what took over me when I killed those men. They deserved death but not necessarily from me. I went back out and Rainn was already dressed. “I figured that you wanted to have the meeting with them right away, so I already set it up.” “You are simply amazing Rainn; I love you so much.” “I love you too, we will get everything figured out and then we can travel the world if you want to.” “Oh my god, a vacation sounds amazing right now.” Rainn laughed and pushed me gently toward the closet for me to
Rainn When Liam burst through the ballroom doors with Ard'al and Malik behind him, all hell broke loose. Malik was holding a frail looking woman with tears running down his face. He was begging Addie to help her. Addie wasted no time in grabbing Calliope and heading off to the room that Malik was assigned to. I yelled orders for the doors to be guarded because no one, and I do mean no one was going to leave this room until I had answers that would satisfy me. "Liam, what in the hell is going on here? Ard'al, where have you been?" Ard'al called Ezra over to him, "Bring me all of the council members." Ezra looked confused, but he went through the crowd and one by one brought the members in front of Ard'al and put them on their knees. "Where is Councilman Tobias?", Ard'al asked. Ezra went back through the crowd of people. "Gone sir, and so is his daughter Octavia from the looks of it." "We need to find him. Oliver?" A man in his early 20s walked out from the crowd and bowed to Ard'
Malik Sitting in the car on the way to the castle, Liam and I tried to pass the time with a game of I spy, but that eventually got old, and I was left in my thoughts. I've lived a very long life but alone. My parents abandoned me when I was just a child. I lived on the streets for a while until some other demons found me and took me to Beherit. As a child, I thought he was larger than life. He showed me how to control my demon side and he also is the one who helped me with my dream walking. I didn't find out until much later as an adult just what kind of person he really was. When he thought I was old enough and strong enough, he gave me a job as his enforcer. It was a horrible job and I hurt a lot of people trying to make him proud. He was like the father I never really had. One day changed everything. We got sent to a home in the next town. Beherit said it was a dangerous enemy that needed to be taken out, so we surrounded the house. I burst through the front door and started cleari
Adalyn It was a whirlwind of activity, and I was not happy to be up at four a.m., but today was the day of the Hunter's ball and we were all getting everything packed up in the vehicles. Rainn made sure to go over everything that I needed to know before we got there, including the names of the council members, their mates, and children. The head of the council is Arthur Tobias. His mate is Charlotte, and they have twins, Oscar and Octavia. Then there's Felix Oberion, his mate Ava and their daughter Evelyn. Albert Warren, his mate Sophia, and they have a son Declan and a daughter, Dana. Ernest Thompson, his mate Amelia and their daughter Alice and son Allen. Theodore Davis, his mate Scarlett, son Connor and daughter Clara. Matthew Jones, his mate Ivy and their twin daughters Elizabeth and Emily. Thomas Miller, his mate Hannah and their twin boys, Oliver and Otis. Finally, Michael Carter, his mate Willow, son Amos and two daughters, Josephine and Cora. He said some are hunters and
Adalyn We all headed upstairs to our rooms to get showered and dressed. When I was finished and got down into the kitchen, Ophelia had started breakfast and we all sat down and ate. The smell of bacon brought all the men in. Rainn looked around at all of us, "And just where do you all think that you are going?" Mercer cleared his throat and Elodie laughed, "We are all going to the mall to get our dresses and everything else that we need for the ball." The look that she was giving him was daring him to question her and of course he couldn't help himself. "After everything that has been going on you guys think it's a good idea to go to the mall. We will be accompanying you." I was starting to get upset, "No, none of you will be accompanying us, we are all very capable women and I think that we can handle dress shopping on our own. "Addie, you saw first-hand that he wants to kill or capture all of you and you think it's a smart decision to go to the mall without us?" My hands start
