This is the second book to this series. Temptation is the first book!!! Pleased read that one first. Thank you xoxo
As I lay here next to Lucy tracing her fingers with mine, I put my hand on her flat stomach and start talking to my unborn child. We were going to be parents, never in my right mind did I think this was possible, but yet here we are. And to think she went to the dark island pregnant. How did I not know? Better yet how did she not know? I wish she would wake up so I could tell her the wonderful news. I hope she would be as happy as I am.
It’s been a full day since she has been asleep. I know Stella said it could be a few days but I have so much I want to talk to her about. And if we are being totally honest I was scared she would never wake up. I was lost in my thoughts when I hear a knock on the door.
“How’s she doing? Any changes?” Sky asked. “No not really she made a few noises but that was about it.” I look over Sky’s shoulder and see Stella is holding a folder. Fuck more test. She has been running test nonstop on Lucy to find out more about the baby and make sure Lucy’s body is healing okay.
“So good news is Lucy never left pregnant, but she did come home pregnant. The test I have been running are to see how you could conceive. You’re immortal so it should be nearly impossible. But I have a feeling the black magic on the island had played some part in all of this. Did you two have sex on the island? And did Lucy use her powers and you use yours at the same time if and when this happened?” Stella asked waiting impatiently for my answer.
What the hell did it matter. It happened and were here now. That’s all that matters. But Stella is a witch so when it comes to magic she needs to know what makes it tick. It’s like she needed to study and dissect it until she understood it. Then put all the pieces back together.
“Yes we was in the cave and couldn’t see so I opened my wings, things got hot and heavy and I told Lucy to take from me, that I wanted to fill her in every way.” I explained knowing Stella would be happy to know what happen and Sky to fist bump me. She was such a little minx and Kye had his hands full. I loved knowing she was his mate and now Luna she will make a damn good one.
“Oh my, yes that is definitely what has happened then. The magic from you and her and the island all combined unlocked a barrier and let you two have a baby. It’s a miracle to say the least. But there is one thing, the baby is growing at fast speed. I think it’s more powerful than all of us. She’s measuring around 7 weeks, but it’s been about a 2 weeks. I will keep and eye on them both. I’ll let you have some time alone.” Stella stated growing excited.
“Thanks Stella, for everything. We wouldn’t be able to live our lives together with a bundle of joy if it wasn’t for you. We are very grateful.” I smile and climb back in bed with Luc. I would never leave her. I didn’t want her to wake up alone and freak out if she wasn’t herself. I just really needed her right now.
“Come on baby, come back to me. I need you.” I whisper in her ear as I kissed her soft cheek. Her heartbeat was steady and she was doing great health wise. But I just don’t understand why she won’t wake up? What if she doesn’t want to come back? No no no, I can’t think like that. She would not have done all this for nothing. She loves me and we are in this together forever.
I started to feel really warm and jerk awake to check on Lucy. I didn’t even realize I had fallen asleep. I look around and it was still dark out but the bedroom was glowing a blue color. What the fuck was that? I look down at Lucy and she is still laying there with her favorite white tee and black leggings on.
I changed her when I brought her up to our room, I wanted her to feel like she was home in bed just getting some much needed rest. Not that she drank a potion and then got her neck snapped. I still couldn’t get that image out of my head. Her lifeless body just lay there limp in my arms. I need to call for Stella her body has a blue glow around it and it’s freaking me out. Is this normal? Fuck no nothing about this situation is normal.
“STELLA!!!” I shouted as loud as I could. My voice was shaky and I couldn’t look away from this blue glow. I was mesmerized by it. Something about it just made me feel at ease.
“What’s wrong? Oh my god!! Liam its its-” Stella tried to explain but I cut her off because I was sure it was bad very very bad.
“It’s the baby.” Stella whispered. I looked around and then that’s when I seen it. The glow was just around Lucy it covered her whole body like it was protecting her. That’s why I felt the heat. Could our baby possibly have my abilities?
Lucy’s body started shaking and it was like a bolt of lighting hit her over and over again. What was happening, was the baby trying to hurt her? Does the baby have to much power for her? I need answers now!
“Stella what the fuck is happening?” I demanded
“The baby, it’s umm trying to wake her up. I have never seen anything like this so I’m not sure. But I think the baby feels what you’re feeling. It’s trying to wake her up so you will not be in pain.
The baby may be in her but I think it’s more like you then we know.” Stella calmly explains what she thinks may be what’s going on. And I have no idea so the only answers I have to go by is hers. So that’s what I am going to do. Follow the baby demands
“That’s right baby bring momma home, make her come back to us. Let her know how much we need her.” I whisper to my unborn child like he was in the room with us. Him or her I have no idea, but I couldn’t call him a it. He was so much more than that. He was everything I ever wanted him and his mother. I would do anything to bring them back to me. And I see that he feels that now, so he is willing to help.
He hit Lucy again and her eyes fly open and she sits up looking right at me and starts to suck the life out of me. Her eyes flash from pink to gold back to blue. Her body is adjusting to her new powers and her mind is using the only one it knows.
“Luc It’s me, stop please let me help you. Baby please don’t make me miss this moment and have to wait even longer to see you. I know you are confused but please let me explain.” I begged her. I didn’t want to die and have to come back it would take to long and I needed to see her now.
“LUCY ENOUGH!” I shouted in a tone that would normally hurt humans ears. She stood up looking at me, she wrapped her arms around my neck and whispered in my ear.
“Liam is that really you? Everything looks so different and I could have sworn you was talking to someone when I woke. And I feel different, like there is something inside of me that is changing my mood.” She explains and she has no idea her world is about to be rocked when she knows she is now carrying a child.
“Luc there is a lot going on for you right now. Why don’t you sit so I can explain it to you.” I gently told her and guided her to the bed. Stella had already left when Lucy’s eyes opened. She didn’t want to freak her out more.
“Luc we have some news and it will explain why you are feeling this way. But promise me you won’t freak out.” I pleaded with my eyes trying to get her just to hear me out. I love the fact that we are going to be parents I just hope she will be too.
“Lucy were pregnant.” I whisper. “Liam I know.” She whispers back. With a smile as she takes my hand and puts it on her stomach. “She came to me when I was transforming into my immortal body. It’s like she was in my mind telling me I have to make it back to daddy and so she could be born. I thought it was all a dream, until I woke up and felt that same warm feeling I once did in my head.
Liam I wouldn’t have made it back without her. Something was pulling me to the other side and I had to fight with everything I had to make it out. Until she blasted bolts of lighting and she shined the light on which path I was supposed to take. Liam she is our magical little baby, who saved us both. I love her so much already.” Lucy smiles and rubs her hand over mine. And just like that we were a family.
“It’s a girl? Now I feel bad. I called her a him because I didn’t like calling her it. Lucy I am so happy that you are back and that we are going to be parents. I love you so much.”
