Izzy’s aka Anna’s POV,
Reno Nevada, not exactly what I would call ideal. It was cold and snowy here. The only thing I liked was we were back in America. Our new home was on the outskirts of the city. Everything was already set up. My uncle ended up having a long talk with me. I took everything he told me with a grain of salt. Not that I’d didn’t want to believe him. Actually, it hurt to feel this way. I just knew I needed to start and find the answers for myself. I knew there would be no way I would look for Ryder or my mother, but Nick was a different story and I had to find him.
I don’t know why I wasn’t scared to find my brother. I almost felt like I knew I could trust him. I also knew trying to find him was going to take a lot of work and I had to keep it to myself. I wanted to share everything with Sebastian, but if everything turned out to be lies. He could be in on it and I just couldn’t take that chance. That in itself broke my heart. Sebastian is my whole world and I love him so much.
My uncle had us all on lockdown. He needed to make sure I was safe and all his men were as well. I know Ryder and if he is after me. Then he won’t stop. I have been through this many times. We’re usually locked down for a good month and then we can start living again. It’s been about a week and things around here are running like normal.
“Baby? Have you thought about what I asked you?” I looked over at him from the kitchen bar.
“About is getting married?” I sighed and tried to come up with something good to tell him. It’s not like I didn’t want that. Because it’s all I have wanted, but it’s different now and I needed to play my cards right.
“We don’t have to rush. Let’s get settled here and once everything is quiet. We can have our wedding as we want.” Sebastian looked at me before he said anything.
“If that’s what you want.” He gave me a small smile and left the room.
Over the next week, I did everything I could to locate my brother. The only problem was he constantly moved around. It was like that living in our world. I wasn’t a very good tracker on my own. Sebastian would be the person I would ask help from normally. I just knew this wasn’t something I could take to him. Or at least that’s what I think. He is very devoted to my uncle. I also knew if I found Nick. I would have to sneak away. My mind had been made up. Once I found my brother. I was going to go to him.
I must have fallen asleep while I was researching on my lab top. Because I opened my eyes to Sebastian sitting on my bed with my lab top in his hands. Fuck, I didn’t know what I had left open. “Izzy, what are you doing?” He asked without looking at me.
“I... I’m trying to find information.”
“By going near them?”
“You don’t understand.” He turned and looked at me.
“What the fuck don’t I understand? These people had you brutalized and now you’re trying to find them?” He looked angry and Sebastian has never been angry with me. I knew what he was capable of. I knew why he was one of my uncle’s best. “Explain yourself to me now Izzy!”
“I’m only looking for my brother. I saw him, Sebastian.” His eyes went wide.
“Where? Here?” He stood up. “I’m going to your uncle.” I jumped up and grabbed his arm.
“Sebastian no! Please.”
“There is no way in hell you are going near any of them. I’ll kill them all if they even go near you.” He was breathing heavily and he had a look of horror on his face. I had no idea if this was real or not, but he had me completely convinced.
“Please baby, calm down and hear me out.” I sat there trying to explain everything that I was feeling. I had no choice and had to tell him the truth. If he really loved me and he wasn’t behind any lies. I knew in my heart he would back me up.
“I only know what your uncle has told me and it’s the same stuff you know.”
“I don’t know what the truth is anymore. All
I know is I need to hear something from my brother. I don’t want to find Ryder or my mother. It’s my brother I want to talk to.” Sebastian pulled me into his arms.
“What if it’s all true and he tries to kill you?”
“Well if that’s is the case. Now I won’t go alone if you with me.” He shook his head.
“I don’t agree with this Izzy, but I know you. I know you’ll do whatever you want. I love you and I promise you that if there are lies. I don’t know about them. Also, understand this. If we do this and Cane gets any wind to it. I could be killed.” I knew what worries Sebastian were true. Betrayal would get him in all kinds of trouble. Or my brother could be in this with Ryder and try and kill me. I wrapped my arms tighter around Sebastian.
“Will you help me?” I asked him. I knew Sebastian was an expert in tracking. If anyone could find Nicolas it would be him.
“I’ll always be by your side, but if we do this we do this my way. I don’t want you going near him. If I can put you in touch with him over the phone. Would you be satisfied with that? At least as a first approach?” I thought about it for a moment.
“What if he doesn’t believe it’s me?”
“Then you are going to have to convince him that it is you. Tell him something only you and him would know.”
“I guess that could work. Thank you.”
“Don’t thank me yet. I have a bad feeling about this. Promise me you won’t do anything without me? Promise me you’ll give me time to find him?” I nodded my head at him. “Tell me.”
“I promise you.” He reached down and kissed my lips.
“You let me handle this. I’ll die if something happens to you.” I crawled into his lap. His grip on me tighten. “You are my girl, I love you more than my own life.” He whispered to me. I believed everything he was saying. I just didn’t believe that if there were lies. Sebastian was a part of them.
“I will marry you wherever and whenever you want,” I whispered back to him. He looked at me and smiled at me.
“Let’s be quiet about it. If anything happens I want to be your husband. We have to have a witness. I’m sure Jet will keep it secret.” Jet is a good guy and one of Sebastian’s closest friends. If Sebastian trusts him so do I.
“How much are you going to tell him?”
“Just about the wedding. No one needs to know what you and I are doing. They are all too loyal to your uncle. That much I can’t trust anyone with.” I nodded my head at him. “We can go to city hall as soon as your uncle lifts the lockdown. I know that’s going to be soon.
“Do you want to join me in the shower?” I said biting my lip. Sebastian shook his head with a hint of a smile on his face. I stood up and reached out for his hand. He gave me his and I lead us into the bathroom. I started the shower and dropped my clothes in front of him. Sebastian loved to watch and I loved to put on a show for him. “Your trust means everything to me,” I said as he stood against the wall and sucked his teeth. I climbed into the shower. His eyes never left me. I closed the glass doors and started to wash. Only my fingers and hand were dancing with my body seductively. I knew it would only be a second before his naked self joined me. I let out tiny moans when my fingers found my own core. I heard the doors open and Sebastian stepped inside. He was quiet at first and I continued my own torture in front of him.
“Looks like you might want some help?”
“What I want is your dick inside of me.”
“I think I can provide that.” He said as I felt his hand go around my neck and my body being pushed against the shower wall.
