“ How is that possible , from your mother’s book , she didn’t seem to know him that well did she?” Emrick asked confused.
I nodded , still staring at the couple in front of me.
“ Maybe she lied?” He continued.
I shook my head. “ I don’t think so. I read everything and she did find him appealing and she probably had a huge crush on him , but this … this is different.”
“ Let’s get nearer.”
I nodded and walked to them.
“ Are you sure you should be here Sierron?”
My mother said putting her hand on his chin.
Sierron smiled softly.
“ I would risk everything Eva, you know it.”
“ I know and that makes me even more worried.”
My mother said sighing and turning to look at the cottage.
Sierron enveloped my mother in his arms.
“ She is still in the kitchen, she won’t catch us.”
My mother sighed and turned around, hugging him.
“ If my mother knew vampires existed she would flip.” My mother chuckled.
But I gasped.
“ What? Vampire ? But I thought that , they turned vampires and werewolves after the curse.” Emrick said looking stunned.
I nodded. My mouth still open.
“ Which means you were already a vampire from the start.” Emrick said outloud.
My mind was spinning , if I was in my body , I would have probably fainted.
“ My mother invited the Callidora family for dinner. She wants me to marry the son.”
My mother , rolling her eyes.
Sierron looked serious.
“ Well you are in line for the clan of course you would need to marry.”
My mother looked at Sierron.
“ But I have you.”
Sierron smiled at her.
“ You do. So ? What are going to do?”
“ For now nothing. I never liked their kid anyway. He’s arrogant.”
“ Well , that is a relief.”
My mother nudged him.
“ I have to go. My mother will think I fell in a well.”
When she was about to turn Sierron pulled her back.
“ Evangeline , I love you more than anything. You know that right?”
My mother put her hand on his and nodded.
“ I know. That’s why I love you so much.”
Sierron smiled sadly.
“ This is going to be one of the most difficult things , I have done in my entire life.”
My mother frowned. “ What?”
Sierron put his hand on my mother’s forehead.
“ You will forget me and forget everything we did together. You need to marry into that family and be the great leader I know you are.”
My mother’s eyes went wide.
And so did mine.
“ What ?! No! Sierron-”
My mother’s voice faded softly.
Her eyes closed and her body went limb.
I looked at Sierron.
He was crying. He kissed her.
“ I will never forget you. I will love you till I’m a rotten corpse.”
Suddenly my body was pushed back and I screamed.
When I finally opened my eyes I was back in the library.
My eyes filled with tears and I hugged myself.
I gasped , but it was only Alarik.
He saw me crying and came running to me.
“ What wrong?”
I explained everything to him.
He sat down on the floor.
“ How did everything turn so confusing?”
I shook my head, still crying.
“ I really want to hug you to me right now. Why did he do that? And how the hell did your mother get pregnant then ?”
I shook my head.
I don’t know Emrick. I really don’t know anything anymore.
Did you see how much he loved her?
“ I noticed this but you felt a huge impact from him right?”
Yeah , from the first moment , I knew he was my father. I just felt it.
“ Yeah and that means that something must have happened after that. But we have over a 10 year gap from the first diary right?”
Yeah. And it means that something big must have happened.
