Love and Loss

By Savannah Cleveland

Action / Romance

Chapter 1

{Rose POV}

I could remember the look in his eyes perfectly, the way he shaped the words with his mouth, his outfit, I remember everything, and it felt like I was getting punched in the heart over and over again.

I woke up gasping for air. It was just a dream, that part of my life was over now, I told myself. I untangled myself from my bedsheets and went out to my kitchen to get a cold glass of water. I could feel my dark brown hair sticking to the back of my neck with sweat. Once I reached the kitchen and grabbed my water I sat on the couch and took small sips of it and let my mind wander.

You see, three years ago I ran away with the help of my father, Abi. Right now I'm living in New York with my bestfriend Amy and my brother Kiran. I met my brother a year ago at a bar. We had started taking about our personal lives after having one too many beers and one thing led to another and we realized that we had the same father yet different mothers. Abi did always get around.

A year and a half ago I also died. However I came back to life, somehow, with no spirit, which broke the bond between Lissa and I. I sent Amy to go to the academy from time to time making sure my mother was alive and well along with everyone else. About a week after I died and came back she went there and had heard Lissa talking to the queen saying that the bond was officially gone and that she knew it was because I was dead. I knew it would be hard on my family and friends but I knew it was for the best. That way they would stop looking for me.

I jumped out of my thoughts when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I turned and looked up into my brothers golden eyes. "Couldn`t sleep?" He asks.

"No, bad dream. What about you?"

"My room is too hot, I opened a window and I'm letting it cool down for a bit."

"What to join me then?" He walks around the couch and sits next to me. I lean my head on his shoulder. "I'm tired but I can't sleep."

"No Rose, you can sleep. You just don't want to."

"How do you know me so well?"

"Because you're my little sister, it's my job." He pulls me closer to him and I chuckle.

"Go to sleep Rose. Amy and I are here, you have nothing to worry about." I do as he says, and sleep comes almost the second I close my eyes.

I wake up to the sun shining though my window. Kiran must have carried me to bed last night. I get out of bed and go get breakfast. When I reach the living room I see my brother and Amy sitting across from each other eating bacon and eggs. Ever since I ran away I had been living on a human time schedule.

"You guys left any more for me?" I asked. They both look at me and I look into Amy's blue eyes.

"Yeah," they answer non chattily. I grab my breakfast and sit down to eat.

"So, any plans for the day?" I ask.

Amy turns to face me making her red, fire like hair fall into her eyes. She blows her hair off of her face. "Kiran and I were thinking that instead of training today we would walk around New York, maybe get somethings. What do you say?" I think about her offer for a second.

"Yeah, sure, why not?"

{Lissa POV}

I grab my bag and headed for the front door of the academy. There waiting for me is my boyfriend Christian, my friends Eddie, Adrian and Dimitri. "I'm the last one?" I ask.

"As usual," say`s my boyfriend. I swat his arm and he grabs my bag for me as he chuckles. I push my blonde hair out of my face and look at everyone.

"Well, let`s do this."

Today we plan on going to New York for a day off. After a resent attack at our school I convinced the queen to let us all leave for a day as a `breather`. She let me but not without taking two guardians which where Eddie and Dimitri. We all walked up to the big white jet and got on safely and began to relax for the ride to come. I couldn`t wait to get to New York and see what it had in store for us.

nikmariecav: I loved reading this book! I was hooked from the moment I started reading. It took me a day to read the whole thing but I didn't want to stop reading.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

bansodeyari: The story is really wonderful. It has details (sometimes which are not needed). The story is plotted well. It's lengthy though, but worth reading. It is based on realty which normal people face. Overall I loved it. Peace✌️.

bhodges11: I like the concept of the story, but there were things that I felt could use more detail. I like the back stories created, but was left wanting more from parts of the story. I like the cadence of the author's writing style - it was a very easy, enjoyable read. I felt like it ended on, not a cliff...
