I slammed on bed and sighed.
“ Sleep it off. We will see everything with a better eye tomorrow.” Alarik said patting my leg.
I nodded and rolled up in the embrun position.
“ Sierra. We will figure this out. We will meet at midnight at the old house okay?”
Yeah. If you are alive by then.
I heard him sigh. “ Sierra, wanna know something?”
“ I can still remember your red eyes. When I first saw you , I actually thought you had red eyes, but I was wrong. I can remember it clearly.”
I smiled softly.
“ Yeah. And I’m sure I will always love those eyes of yours.”
And I will love yours.
Yeah , they have a shade of silver , that I have never seen.
Something still really worries me.
“ What is it?”
That we know nothing of your parents yet. We only have been talking about me. But what about you?
“ I don’t matter Sierra. You are the most important here.”
I shook my head violently.
Don’t say that Emrick. Why do you have to die everytime ?
Why your parents didn’t come to see you ?
Why did you fall in love with such a greedy person like me?
Why Emrick ? Why?
My eyes stung and tears fell down my cheeks.
His soft voice , soothed my aching heart. “ Sierra?”
“ Sweetheart, a greedy person would never ask why. And why me ? Well I don’t know , but right now we have to survive tomorrow. After we do and we will , we will find my parents okay?”
I wiped my eyes.
He was being strong for me. He always does that.
He always listens without saying anything he is thinking.
I wanna do that same thing.
“ You already do.”
He said softly.
My eyes went wide.
No , I don’t.
“ Yes you do. You just don’t realize it. Just by hearing your voice , I can breath. Seeing you howling at the moon , makes my heart race so fast , I can see it running away from my chest…”
“ But mostly, your beautiful heart , is always what puts a smile on my face. And how even if your whole words came crumbling down because you fell in love with me , you didn’t falter. I love you Sierra. No matter what.”
My heart squeezed.
He was right.
“ I love you so much Emrick.”
“ I know. Get some rest baby.”
Baby ? That’s the first time you called me that.
“ Do you like it?”
“ Than close your eyes baby and rest. I promise you everything will be okay.”
And with his words, my eyes closed.
When my eyes slowly opened , I had to adjust to the blinding light.
“ Morning , princess. Today we have one heck of a day planned.”
Alarik said jumping on the bed.
“ Let me guess. We have to stay in my room , all day?”
“ Dang , how did you know , I tried to plan a huge surprise.” He said pouting.
I chuckled and hit his thigh with my foot.
“ Where is he?”
Alarik smiled softly.
“ He had to leave for an inspection with the council. But you have guards in front of your room.” He whispered the last bit.
I nodded and got up.
“ I need a shower.”
He nodded and crashed on the small sofa near my window.
I went into my small private bathroom and took a shower.
After finishing , I put my wet hair in a bun and put on some shorts and a baggy shirt.
When I went back into the room , Alarik was reading one of the books I brought back from the library.
“ Which on is that?” I said sitting on the sofa near him.
“ The 1590.”
“ How much did you manage to read from all the books?”
“ Almost everything , I think. Every time was so different, I couldn’t keep up.”
“ What do you mean?”
I pulled my knees up and hugged it to my chest.
“ Every time , we fell in love differently , some at age 20 and some even went on till 27. But the long relationship is that of a year, which was the last reincarnation.”
“ Something has been bothering me from everything that you said.” Alarik said.
He had his chin in his fingers.
“ What is it ?”
“ Why did your mother die this time ? She was alive in every single time you reincarnated right ? Why now ?”
He was right.
I didn’t think about it till now.
“ Yeah, your right.”
“ Do you have something on your mind?”
I sighed heavily. “ Too much stuff , that I don’t understand.”
Alarik chuckled and put his arms around me.
“ You will get through this.”
I nodded. “ After knowing all this , I really can’t let anything happen to Emrick. Knowing more , made things worse.”
Alarik squeezed me to him.
“ I think deep down , your previous reincarnations have already told you everything you need to know. You just need to listen.”
Deep down in my mind and in my heart , I know everything. I just need to stop….
