Somewhere, sometime in the future
My pen raced across the page with uncertainty. It had been a while since I had written anything that wasn’t for school or a hospital form.
Being a mother changes you.
For a while, it was just him and I and the obstacles that stood in our way.
Two lost souls who had come across each other in the middle of the night. It felt like a thousand years, remembering when our eyes first met, everything around me became white noise, a glowing feeling arose in my chest knocking every breath out of my body, and making my heart skip a beat.
Someone once told me everyone has a compass inside them that tells them where to go. That it acts as a guide. If that’s true I knew that the needle pointed to him. Before then it spun around wildly with no sense of direction. I must have found where I was meant to be because everything became easier for me after him.
Talks of magnets and compasses around us is a frequent thing that we have gotten used to.
But we grew, and then it wasn’t just him and I anymore.
My thoughts were consumed by him and our daughter. Thinking of myself for even a moment seemed unbearable at first.
Everything had changed.
But change is a tricky thing.
Always different and never the same.
There had been 2 instances in my life when my world was ripped from underneath my feet ever since he came into my life, but I had no regrets.
Thor opened his large golden wings above me, making a series of high-pitched piping noises before taking flight around the room and going out of the window with grace. He was leaving to go escort Noelani home from school.
I smiled knowing what that meant. School would be out soon and Klaus would be out of work half an hour later. Tonight we had no real plans, maybe a movie or two after dinner which I still couldn’t figure out what I was making. I had ordered pizza for the last 2 nights, I promised myself I would do that again to the ones I loved.
Though I know Noelani never minded. Especially, when she picked the slices of pineapples off of her father’s pizza. He never did get on the pineapple pizza train.
While she was at her preschool, ʻōpua poʻe lele, I never really stayed home. Sometimes I’d watch over her from afar as she played on the playground, or sat in her purple bean bag chair working on something. Thor got a better view than me. In fact, where there was a window he perched by it watching her with his dark ancient eyes. Her preschool was only in session for 4 hours, and if there was a luau the day was cut in half.
Usually, Klaus would have to attend meetings with the pack. As their alpha it was mandatory he was present. Since Noelani had been born I had for the most part stepped aside to take care of her. When we took our usual Sunday and Wednesday drives he filled me in.
Fortunately, Klaus had sent them back home to help with a situation so for at least 2 weeks he would be coming home early.
That meant more family time down at our private beach, game night, the community picnic that was taking place a few days from now..... Henrik and Felecia were planning to come up, joined by Finn and Sage with their red-headed son Amell. Kathrine and Chris as well as Josh and Aiden were planning on a vacation and were talking to Keanu, my grandfather about good places to stay. Brennan and Booth’s vacation had been pushed back due to a spike in murder cases. A part of me wanted to go help them, but I felt fine right where I was. I didn’t really need any more in my life like I had in the past. I had Klaus and Noelani, everything else wasn’t a necessity.
I just wish it could be another time that this happened and not this week. It was the end of the month again and a portion of Noelani’s blood would have to be drained. My blood would have to be given to her afterward, a process that Klaus only trusted House and Cameron to do.
Sweets thought it would be best to start writing poetry again to cope with what happened. I was having nightmares again and I knew I wasn’t alone because Klaus would wake up screaming our daughter’s name.
Thinking back to the incident the pen snapped between my fingers and ink bled across the page, like blood.
Breathing in deeply I discarded the now broken pen, a gift from a friend, but kept the ruined paper.
L ight didn’t come until much, much later to my crushing displeasure and sweet delight. I had been robbed of love and warmth before I could even stand on my own two feet. Darkness. The unlit room that shadows moved across terrified me, but it the first thing I remember. The first thing I couldn’t escape awake or asleep. Everything remained unclear but the sheer fear of not knowing was enough to give me an impression of my future. The dark never left me. Instead, the dark kept me company, it gave me enough awareness for me to know that I- I was alone. Darkness was something I couldn’t fight, somehow even when fire burned brightly in the palm of my hand the dark still won.
U nending pain is what came next. It hit me out of nowhere. It was a blow I never saw coming but it was one that never made my heart still, my breathing stop, or made me cease to exist. No matter how many times I wished for death, death never came. Over the years the pain started leaving scars, marks all over my being. Even on days when my skin healed, my mind never did.
N ecessity. For me to live my heart had to be able to pump blood through my veins. For me to survive I had to have him by my side. I could choose to stop breathing, I couldn’t choose to stay away. He was more than half of me. Healing my inside that was riddled with scars, and that spoke of years of abuses. He was like me, he knew pain in ways anyone else wouldn’t be able to grasp. And he healed me with his hands and his words.
A lways and F-
The clear ringing voice that reminded me of my mother’s pulled me out of my thoughts of poetry, my life before Klaus, and what happened nearly five years ago.
Wasting no time I ran to her and hugged her before she could even realize what was happening.
“Um, mom, are you-”
I pulled away and cupped her slightly pudgy cheeks. “I missed you today.”
Shadow appeared out of the air and sniffed her before licking her cheek and rolling over on his back demanding attention.
She rolled her deep sienna eyes, a feature that had been my mother’s. Sometimes I was convinced that my mother had been reincarnated into Lani. Shadow managed to win her over because soon he was getting scratched in his favorite spot.
“I was just at school. No one tells you how boring it really is,” I ruffled her hair, and she leaned on my hand giggling before it was cut off by a cough. Thor tilted his head to the side as he looked at her, his eyes scrutinizing....
“My Queen, is she sick?”
I frowned at his words, as I patted her back. “I hope she isn’t.”
“Hey, Pua, are you okay?”
Noelani waved me off, “I’m fine, Mom, I just need some water. I’ll be back.”
Shadow followed her into the kitchen while Thor and I watched her departure.
“I will go consult my brother about her cough.”
I tensed, “Did she cough on the way home?” I questioned. I worried that I would have to call House.
“Yes. But the little Valkyrie was running home quite hard today, it may be nothing but...”
“Go and discuss what happened with Loki. Just in case,” I instructed. And with the flap of his magnificent golden wings, Thor was gone again.
“Sweetie, was Nyx there today? I know it’s harder on you when she’s not there.”
I asked this because whenever her best friend wasn’t there it was harder on her.
“Yeah, but Ms. Lee was doing that thing again. It’s really starting to creep me out,” Noelani said, as she threw the little decorated solo cup in the trash. I put my head on her chest, listening to her heart. Right now it was sounding more like one of a hummingbird rather than her own. But House said not to worry as long as she didn’t start coughing up blood or develop a rash. And I wasn’t about to make a trip to New Jersey for nothing.
Knowing what she meant by her teacher I grit my teeth. There was really nothing I could do. I couldn’t exactly cover my husband’s face and body everywhere we went.
Or maybe I could?
“I’ll never let anyone hurt you, Pua, you know that,” I said, pulling away and making sure she was looking at me.
One day I would sit her down and tell her all about it. But today was not that day.
“I know, Momma. Just like I’ll never let anyone hurt you, you’re my family. And we protect our family, always and forever,” she sung with a hard nod.
“Always and forever indeed....”
She then detached herself away from me, swinging her arms. Shadow trotted after her, following her as always.
“Hey, is Nyx coming over tomorrow night?” I asked her as she skipped to the kitchen and grabbed her usual after-school snack, chilled starfruit.
“Yeah! Her cousin got out of jail early, so it’s on again!”
She then started singing some Taylor Swift songs while moving her hips arm legs in sporadic motions. Immediately I blamed Damon, Cami, Caroline, and Stefan because I let them watch over her one day.
Shadow’s eyes followed her movements. I know that he would do all he could to make sure she wouldn’t hurt herself.
“Be careful, I don’t want you to fall.”
She sighed, before turning around and sticking a hand on her hip, “Uncle Kol is right. You worry too much.”
For her age, she was extremely independent. I still watched her make sure she didn’t trip. Noelani was a little aggressive....towards anyone who wasn’t family.....and she only had one good friend, Nyx. Who was almost as aggressive as her.
Though after everything, Klaus and I couldn’t be luckier being married and proud parents of a 4 almost 5-year-old daughter.
The journey had been long but we deemed it worthy in the end. I was thankful for so much and yet recently that didn’t overshadow the anger inside.
Pain I could deal with, but this anger was another thing entirely.
This anger wouldn’t go away if I talked to someone or went to the gym. This anger was unending, and it terrified me.
Klaus had lived for over a thousand years I was sure he would be able to help me as soon as-
Hearing little running feet I opened my mouth to remind her of the rules but I didn’t get the chance-
“Daddy’s home! Daddy’s home! Daddy’s home!”
I smiled sadly at my daughter, “Aww, Pua, he has at least 30 more minutes of work to go. And then he has that thing with Grandpa and-”
“No. He’s home,” she insisted, glaring at me slightly as Shadow barked lowly.
A breeze lifted my hair, and I smiled feeling arms wrap around me. “How does she always know?”
“I don’t know. Maybe it’s something in the air. House says she may be able to sense changes in the air pressure........barometric sensors....something along those lines....”
He kissed me on the neck, and as always my heart stuttered in my chest. His plump lips dangerously lingered, causing heat to shoot down straight to my core.
Without seeing his face I knew he was smirking.
He walked from behind me and as always Lani tackled him with a hug. I stepped forward concerned seeing if she had harmed herself, her father wasn’t exactly built like a pillow.......... and Lani was so fragile....... Her laugh told me she was alright, but I was still too tense to relax.
He kissed her on the cheek, “How was school, my little Pua?”
She giggled when he kissed the top of her head. “Boring as always. I drew pictures most of the day.”
Klaus nodded, seemingly pleased with this.
“How was work?”
“Tedious,” he replied tickling her sides. “No one’s been mean to you have they?” Klaus asked, now very serious as he took her bag off her shoulders and handed it to me. I placed it on the rack between Klaus’ hook and mine.
I heard Lani scoff and turned just in time to see her put her hands on her hips and puff out her chest. “As if. They would be stupid to be mean to me because I’d be mean right back. Except I-I’d be 10x as worse.”
A smirk spread on his face, “That’s my girl.”
Noelani beamed up at him.
“Oh, I did draw some pictures. Would you like to see?”
“Maybe, later after we come back home,” he spoke softly putting a curl behind her ear.
I loved it when he talked to Lani. He used that special tone of voice, he reserved just for her. Even with Hope, though she was all grown up by now.
“Come back? Where are we going? Are we going to meet Tobias, Uncle Elijah, and Aunt Cam again at the airport? Uncle Wyatt and Aunt Vicki? Aunt Vina and Uncle Kol? Damon, Cami, Stef, or Care? Oh, I hope Lizzie comes with them! She’s so nice, but I’m not sure if Josie likes me. Jethro, Blade, Tony, Probie, Ziva, Abby, Ducky! Is it Eriek, Jace, Uncle Marcel, and Aunt Bekah? Or is it Nik, Uncle Vince, Aunt Freya? Uncle Henrik and Aunt Felicia? Grandma Ester and Grandad Mikeal? Poppa? Ooh! Ooh! Is it my sister?!”
She talked fast while excitedly hopping up and down, her curls bouncing with her. It was good to see her like this. A kid. She was a little too level-headed for her age.
Klaus chuckled, “Steady, now, Pua.”
“Hope still isn’t coming until next week. Remember she is bringing someone with her this time. But you can call her later tonight if you wish.”
“Oh, I do, I do, I do!”
“However, tonight we are going to, Nalu ’ono.”
My brows raised at this. I couldn’t help but be surprised.
“Lu’s place? I thought we were going to have a quiet night at home.”
Klaus frowned and told Lani to go get her bag. She ran past him and was headed for the staircase, Shadow following closely behind.
I felt a pang in my chest. If she fell that would be an early trip to the hospital.
“Noelani Kaimana Heights, we walk up the stairs we don’t run!”
My chest had started tightening and my heart began to race. My anxiety was creeping up again, I hadn’t had that problem in 3 years. I thought I had been free, but as Agnes had said I would never truly be free.
Her footsteps faltered and she gave a heavy sigh, “But if I run I could get there faster.”
“The rule isn’t negotiable, Noelani,” Klaus called out and she padded softly up the stairs.
“What’s wrong, my love?”
Despite how poorly I was feeling I couldn’t help but smile at his words. “Is it the dreams?”
I nodded and he pulled my head into his chest. “I wish I could help you.”
“I thought a night out would take some of the weight of you. Forgive me, if I’ve been too hopeful in thinking that it would take our minds off of things. If you’d rather stay in-”
“No,” I cut him off, pulling away as I headed to the kitchen. “I want to go, it’s just....”
I smiled, seeing that she made an effort to clean up her mess. Usually, she left it but for some reason today she tried.
Bursting into tears hadn’t been my plan, but going out hadn’t been my plan either.
After convincing my husband I was fine, and that it was just our daughter’s efforts and cleaning that had moved me to tears and nothing else.
He promised that me that we would talk later and I agreed wholeheartedly.
Noelani skipped down the stairs and across the floor. Not running but not exactly walking either.
“Shadow, guard the house,” Klaus said, petting the dog’s head, as he promised to throw back the ball with him later.
The rottweiler hellhound growled enthusiastically at my husband’s words before taking a pose and freezing. He would stay like that until we got home.
I watched as my husband knelt in front of our daughter and put a flower in her hair (plumeria) in her favorite colors violet and orange. The sweet-smelling flowers grew everywhere on the island, Lani even had some in her room sitting in a pot on her windowsill. Something he did when he walked home every day.
She giggled as he picked her up, “Daddy, it’s beautiful!
“That’s right, Pua, just like you, and-” His hand reached out and placed a flower in my own hair, this one white and yellow. “Your mother.”
After all these years he still managed to make me blush.
“We aren’t taking the car are we?” Noelani’s tone was cheerful but also questioning.
“Why take the boring car when we have a Loki?”
Just as she recognized the meaning behind my words galloping was heard along with Thor’s chirping sounds.
As always, Loki’s horse form was stunning. Every inch of him was black. In different shades throughout his mane and body but it seemed like it was never-ending. There were a couple of strands of gold braided in his tail and mane.
The mischievous creature neighed into Noelani’s palm before trotting over to my husband and bumping his side nearly knocking him over.
Klaus huffed, while Loki gave him the prettiest smile as he trotted over to me (making sure to kick up some dirt on Klaus).
While my husband and Noelani were distracted with Thor, this would be the perfect time to have a private conversation.
I chuckled and stroked his face making sure to look into his dark eyes.
“I think you shouldn’t call the doctor. Not yet,” His voice was soft but it spoke of urgency. That worried me. Loki wasn’t the serious brother, he rarely ever was. That was Thor’s job.
“Why? What if-”
He hadn’t ever used that tone with me before. Waves of calm washed over me, but his magic no matter how powerful was not enough to trump my worry. He drew me in a hug with his head.
“A storm is approaching, my Queen. You mustn’t begin to worry of the little things-”
“Little things? She is my child, Loki,” I growled.
“I am aware,” his tone softened again. “But you will have plenty of time to fret about your little fighter. But for now, be at peace while you still can, Selene.”
He pushed me away, neighing gently and licking my cheek. But I was still tensed from the last word he spoke in my mind.
I hadn’t been called that name in years.
Loki’s words echoed in my head as the 4 of us traveled on the long winding dirt road. A jungle of bamboo trees towered around us. Thor flew above us, his feathers glinting in the sun reminding me of armor. The 3 of us were on Loki’s back.
It wouldn’t have been good for its health on any ordinary horse, but Loki wasn’t any ordinary horse. He wasn’t even really a horse at all.
“Are you alright?”
Every time I looked back at my husband that’s what his eyes seemed to ask.
Before we passed the last of the bamboo trees I looked back at him and held his gaze. He knew how I was feeling through our bond, but he also knew me like no other.
Noelani gasped as we saw the first brightly colored flowers appear between rocks. She sat between Klaus and me despite wanting to be in front. Klaus feeling my worry convinced our hard-headed daughter to not argue and go along with whatever we said. If anything were to happen not only would Thor and Loki attack but our fragile little Pua would be between her father and me.
Before my parents were even thought of, I had a name.
Klaus was known as the original hybrid, both wolf and vampire. A monster to some, but a hero to me. I had not only witch blood running through my veins but wolf as well. My lycanthrope rank was superior to others, even Klaus. But I wanted to share the crown with him and I never ruled without him by my side. I was the queen and he was the king, and our little Pua was the princess. My husband had sired me years ago, so I had some vampire too. But I wasn’t known as the tribrid like Hope.
I was Selene.
The silver-haired deity who was correlated to the moon and all things wolf-related. My story had been told over a thousand times, spoken in hundreds of different tongues, all over this very existence......others too....
I had many names ranging from the alpha of all wolves to moonchild.
Most people adored and respected me, some even worshiped the very ground I walked upon, but few knew what I was really capable of....The darkness inside me.... And those who did know, well they feared me because of my past, and the expressions of my future composed in the stars and carved into the oldest of stones.....
Dinner at Nalu ’ono was amazing as always. And as the love of my life predicted, I was happier.
And I would continue to hold on to the happiness until the worry crept up again.
Thor was contently perched in a tree while Loki trotted off into the jungle after dropping us off. All it would take was for me to think his name in my head and he would return to take us home.
Klaus and I started off with Lūʻau. The next course was Poke, while Noelani and the rest of the kids at the restaurant had chicken fingers. I had to give her a stern look when she realized mostly every dish starred fish. She was attached to all marine life and refused to harm or let others harm them (if she could help it). Thankfully she didn’t say anything, though I’m sure Lu wouldn’t have minded, he had been friends with us for a very long time. The main course, Kālua pork with cabbage and rice for sides. I swear I could eat that one all night long. Lu’s wink told me I’d be getting some leftovers to go. Though, I might have to fight over them with my grandmother, Jasmine. For dessert we hadHaupia, I know Klaus was happy to hear that was being served as it was one of his favorites. The children at the restaurant got up and played after a round of chips and Poi dip. Apparently, Klaus had planned this, because not only my grandparents, Keanu and Jasmine but there had been there along with pack members, and even a few friends of ours on the island. They watched over Noelani and the other children so that Klaus and I could talk with our friends and sit back and drink some Mai Tais.
Nyx was even there and she and Noelani spent hours running along the shore causing trouble. Naturally, when we came home our little Pua was in his arms passed out.
The ride home had been mostly uneventful besides Loki trying to bite Thor’s tail. After dismounting the two brothers chased each other off into our backyard.
Reminding me that the ancient beings who had guided and protected me were nothing more than children.
Before I could turn the key, she woke up mumbling about how she had to call Hope. “Lani, you can call her in the morning, baby,” I said, as I kissed the top of her head as I turned the key unlocked the door. She settled back down onto her father’s shoulder, seemingly satisfied with that.
“She’s in bed,” I called out, leaning against the door frame in his study. After everything I had just found out, I felt a little better that Shadow slept in her room.
“What took so long?”
“She woke up and demanded to call her sister.”
Klaus chuckled while shuffling through some papers and putting them in files. “And?”
“She called her and they talked until she fell asleep.”
He smiled, and I did too, happy that the sisters were getting along.
“Actually, Hope and I talked and she might not be able to make it next week.”
Klaus looked up from his papers, the smile slipping off his face.
“Why? What’s wrong? What’s happened?”
“Not only is there a demon problem but the remnants of the Dark Sun Clan are starting to gather again.”
He stood and I could practically see the wheels turning in his head. “Have you contacted your brothers Chris and Wyatt? Cole? Jonathan? Apollo? Castiel?”
“M.I.A. I’ve been trying to get a hold of them for the last 3 days. I didn’t think it was a big deal because Wyatt’s stressed about the baby, and Chris and Kat are going through it right now. Jonathan and Apollo or in Aubi Dubai, working undercover with Jethro and Abby. Cole won’t answer either, but the Underworld was supposed to be celebrating progress so he’s probably just drunk with Phoebe. Our Angel, Castiel, is on vacation with Syrah, and still recovering from what Lieas did to him.”
Klaus clenched his jaw, cursing loudly.
“Can they handle it?”
“The way Hope described, no. A quarter of Mystic Falls’ population has been cut in half and the demon has been trying to get into Moonwake. And she says that she’s sorry for not telling you about it earlier because she didn’t want to worry you and thought she could handle it herself.”
“We can’t leave her!”
I leaned against the wall, tears springing in my eyes.
“Klaus, if you can think of another way I’m all ears.”
My husband lashed out, striking his computer that was now in pieces. “I’ll go,” I offered.
“No, I-I need you here with me. This week has been hard enough and I cannot make it without you.”
I was aware of Thor and Loki appearing in the window.
But I paid no mind as I walked over to him and placed my head against his. I licked my lips, “A day. A day and a night.”
His eyes flew open and I was swimming in his stormy azure sea.
“If we leave now, we’ll make it before morning. And then we’ll have that day and that night to take care of whatever’s wrong.”
This wasn’t an easy decision for either of us but something had to be done.
“Your grandparents will take her to their home, and they will be joined by 30 of our hybrids, 18 witches, and 15 vampires. Shadow as well,” his eyes were no longer blue but gold.
“Yes....” I breathed, before capturing his lips with mine in a passionate kiss that decimated whatever control I had over my emotions as I let my tears fall and body shake. His hands ghosted up the back of my dress.
They grazed over my ass before moving down to my thighs..... I felt weightless as he lifted me up.....
His strength never failed to surprise me.
Before I knew it I was up against the wall, his body caging me in. My legs on habit wrapping around his toned torso.
I turned away from his lips, needing a moment to breathe. There was too much raw emotion in the air and my empathetic powers at the moment weren’t helping me.
His mouth made marks all along my collar bone, neck, and under my jaw as I cried in silence.
As always, Klaus gently kissed my cheeks free of any tears.
He was crying too.
My hands snaked over his chest, as I leaned and kissed his fallen tears away just as he did for me.
And then he was kissing me with bruising force. I could feel his anger, as his teeth dug into my bottom lip hard enough to draw blood. I moaned at the pain, sliding my hands down from his face to his shirt.
Without hesitation I allowed my claws to tear open his shirt exposing his skin that had tanned quite nicely from all the years in the sun.
He was the one to pull back for air this time.
I dove my head into his neck. Breathing the smell of him in........ Nipping and nibbling where I pleased before fully biting down.........
He gasped and I relished the sound.
And I knew he could feel my anger as my claws lightly made marks down his back. It was an anger the both of us shared.
I pulled back, smoothing over the mark with my tongue as his hand skillfully went under the front of my dress.
I wanted him to take me on the desk, on the floor, against this very wall..... Anything to make the pain that threatened to send us back a couple of years go away or be temporarily forgotten.......
His fingers had just reached the front of my panties-
“Klaus,” I say, breathlessly. “We have to....” And the words got lost as his lips found my pulse point on my neck.
“I know, love.”
He removed us from the wall. It was obvious he wasn’t the only one unhappy that we couldn’t start what we had finished.
It took me a moment to realize it but both of us were trembling.
The grip he had on my thighs hadn’t lessened. So, I wasn’t the only one who was losing control. It was comforting to know that fact.
I knew that without a doubt If we didn’t leave the room now, we wouldn’t until tomorrow.
When he finally released me my legs shook for a few moments before I forced myself to stand steady and temporarily forget what took place moments before.
“Go,” his tone was commanding and husky from all the kissing and touching we had done. His shirt lay in tatters on the ground. Looks like we would both have to change before leaving. My body was humming with energy and I had never felt more awake.
“I’ll pack her bag and call Keanu and Jasmine, and set up the team. You, pack our bag.”
Then he sped off leaving me alone with a heavy heart.
It was supposed to be different. I wasn’t supposed to feel this way.
I hadn’t felt this way since I left the cemetery, since Klaus saved me, and without knowing it I had met the person who had caused my deepest hurt days later.
A/N: This will be part of a series. Though I will warn you now, not everything will be the same as it was on Charmed, The Vampire Diaries, or The Originals. For example, that means dead characters may be brought back, and characters who are normally alive might be dead. The same thing goes for relationships, the names of places, etc.... If things being different bothers you then feel free to leave at any time. I would appreciate it if my original characters and plot weren’t stolen as I’ve worked hard on them. I am writing this book series for the pure fun of it and wish to have no monetary gain. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you guys give me! Also, this book is rated mature for good reason! This book is pretty dark and it will contain things such as; murder/attempted murder, rape/attempted rape, torture, blood/gore, language, sex, and demons. So if you don’t like reading any of those things then turn back now because (this is the only warning you will be getting). But thanks, for reading, if you choose to stick around🤗
