Gabriel’s POVI knew this was not going to be easy.I sighed and ran my fingers through my hair. A nervous habit I had picked up from Nick.“Why did I think she was going to agree?” I muttered after I heard her slam her bedroom door.“Yeah, why did you?” Annie said angrily and stood in front of us. “We don’t know you. Not to mention all the rumors I heard about you. How do we know we’ll be safe with you?”“Look, I know about the rumors, okay,” I said annoyed. “Most of them are not true.”“Oh, well, now that is a relief,” she said sarcastically. “I can now be sure that the one about you killing someone is not true.”I gritted my teeth together. “I never killed anyone, Annie.”Nick placed his hand on my shoulder, trying to calm me down.“Look, Annie, I’ve known Gabriel my whole life and yes, he can be rough, but he is not a murderer,” he said, looking at her intensely. “We need you to trust us about this and convince Aria to come with us.”“And why would I do that?” she asked glaring at
Gabriel’s POVI was finally able to relax now that Aria said she would move to my house. Knowing she will be near me all the time gave me a warm and peaceful feeling.I could tell Nick was happy as well. He was smiling so wide I thought his mouth was going to rip. I chuckled at his expression.The more I thought about it, the more this mate thing annoyed me. I just found my sister and now I will have to compete for her attention once Nick told her. I knew it was stupid, but I couldn’t escape these feelings. I wanted to spend time with her. Get to know her. But I knew how possessive Nick can be, and he will make it difficult. Because he wanted the same thing. I was already pissed at Nick, but he was my friend and I wanted him to be happy. And Aria made him happy. I will just have to find a way to keep my own possessiveness in check.“How about we go to the living room and watch a movie?” Annie asked, interrupting my train of thought.“Sure,” I nodded, “but not some chick flick.”Annie
Gabriel’s POVWhen Nick and I got into my car he sighed loudly.“I am going to lose her before I even get her,” he said.“You will not. But you have to tell her the truth,” I said while starting the car.“I will do it tomorrow when they move in,” he tells me. “Honestly I was afraid to tell her today. I have a feeling she would run away.”“What makes you say that?” I frowned.“I don’t know,” he said. “Maybe I am picking up something from her. But I am going to tell her when she is close so I can keep an eye on her.”“Should we stay and watch the house?” I asked.I was concerned. She wouldn’t run, would she?“So she can bite our heads off if she catches us?” he said, smirking. “I will text Annie and tell her to be careful.”He pulled out his phone from his front pocket and texted Annie. A few moments later she responded. He read her text and I could see his fists clenching.“What?” I asked angrily.“Annie says she got the same feeling from her. She will watch her carefully,” he growled.
Gabriel’s POVI woke up around 10 am and the first thing I did was smile. It was the day my sister came home.I got up and went to the bathroom to do my morning business and to take a shower. I quickly got dressed and went downstairs to have a cup of coffee and eat something.My plan was to get to Annie’s house as quickly as possible. Maybe get them here before 6 pm.There was a knock on my door and Nick let himself in.“Hey, man.” he greeted me.“Morning,” I said, chewing on a sandwich as fast as I could.“Somebody is hungry,” he smirked and got himself a cup of coffee. “Did you have a girl here last night?”“No,” I frowned. “I just want to get to Annie’s house as fast as possible.”“You are going to freak her out and ruin this for both of us,” he said. “You said 6 pm. Give her until then.”I looked at him and frowned. I didn’t want to wait until then. How was he so calm?“What the hell am I supposed to do until then?” I asked him. “And how are you so calm? You should want her here e
Warning: description of violence.Unknown POVShe was so beautiful. Even more than four years ago when I first found her. She was a woman now.I let my gaze travel down her body. Her breasts were perkier than the last time. Her waist was slightly slimmer, and her ass was a bit rounder. She was perfect.Her brown hair is touching her waist and her green eyes are wonderful. I couldn’t stop dreaming about her. I will have her. I can’t wait to touch her again. It will be even more exciting this time. She was enchanting now.I watched her leave the house she had been staying at for the past couple of days. She was with a girl and two men who I can’t wait to kill. I had been watching those two idiots for the last two days, and they both had a thing for my girl. I can’t have that. After my boss uses her for his plans, she will be mine. He has promised me.I pull my phone out of my pocket and call my boss.“She left the house,” I said.“Good. Follow her,” my boss said. “Do not lose her!”“I w
Gabriel’s POVI was smiling like an idiot, and I couldn’t remember the last time I was this happy.I pulled up my driveway and Nick and I helped the girls with their bags. We went upstairs and I showed the girls to their rooms while Nick went to get dinner his mom had made for us.“Which bags are yours?” I asked Aria.“That one,” she said and pointed to a black duffle bag.“You have only one?” I was confused.“Yeah, well, I lost all of my stuff in the fire,” she said with sadness in her voice.“Don’t worry,” I said and placed my hand on her shoulder. “We will replace everything.”She looked at me confused, but I didn’t give her space to ask me anything.“Unpack and then come downstairs,” I smiled and walked out the door.I went towards Annie’s room and saw her getting her clothes from her bags and folding them in the closet. She was excited and it made me happy. I knocked on the open door.She looked up at me and smiled. “Hey, Gabe.”“Is the closet big enough?” I teased her.“It will
Gabriel’s POVI thought I was going to lose it when I saw Aria run away. Annie barely stopped me from going after her. She told me to let Nick handle it, but I was afraid he wouldn't catch her. When he told me he got her, I could finally breathe normally again.“I can’t believe she ran away,” Annie said quietly.I didn’t know what to respond, so I just continued to stare through the window, waiting for them to return.“What if she rejects him?” she asked and came to stand by me.“He will probably go back to being an even bigger man whore than before,” I chuckled.I knew how hurt he would be. It would kill him. He really cared about her. But it was easier to joke around than to tell Annie the truth.“He was a man whore?” she smiled and raised her eyebrow.“Pretty much,” I said.“What about you?” she asked me, smirking.I turned to her and gave her my most seductive smile. “Women love me.”She laughed and shook her head. “I bet they do.”I turned back towards the window and saw Nick and
Gabriel’s POVI woke up to the sound of knocking on my bedroom door.“What?” I grunted, not wanting to get up.“Get up, man,” I heard Nick’s voice. “We have to start searching.”I grunted again and sat up in my bed. We agreed to go to my grandma’s old study and our library and find everything we can about Victor and Cora. If he was politically active there should be some records about him. We have to start somewhere.“What time is it?” I asked and got up.“8:30 am.”“Too early,” I complained.He laughed. “Don’t be a pussy. Go do your morning stuff and I’ll see you at your grandma’s study. I’ll start looking.”I brushed my teeth and hopped in the shower. I put on a pair of sweats and a hoodie and went down to the kitchen.I made two cups of coffee and took them to the study.Nick already had two books in front of him.“Anything?” I asked and handed him his cup of coffee.“Nothing much,” he responded, not looking up from the book in front of him. “Go to the library and bring any books t
