The next few days were torture , my father kept me on a tight leash because some vampires have been spotted in the vicinity. I haven’t got the chance to see Emrick yet but I have had chances to check on some vampires abilities and reading others thoughts it’s normal but I didn’t find anything on communication or telepathy. So I made a decision to ask somehow who I shouldn’t be asking this too but he’s the only person with the knowledge to answer me, my father.
“ Dad , can I ask you something ?” I ask my father while the council members exited the meeting room after the weekly meeting.
He looked at me and nodded , while sitting back in his seat.
“ I know this is gonna sound weird but have you ever encountered a vampire with telepathy? I’m doing my own research so to know about when I’m clan leader.”
Worst possible lie ever.
He looked at me but shook his head. “ Not that I know off.”
I nodded. “ Thank you.”
He got up and exited the room. I guess the excuse of studying to be a better clan leader works.
Alarik entered the room.
“ Up for a walk today ? Your father thinks it’s better to walk then to study about vampires.”
Alarik chuckled. I smiled softly , somehow this situation turned into a win win situation. I will get to ask him personally.
So after dinner we went for a walk. When I was a little further away from home I tried to think about him.
“ Finally , you got out of that stinky home.”
I had to bite my tongue so not to laugh.
“ Usual spot?”
After disposing myself of Alarik , I went running to the house.
I saw him waiting for me , he was sitting on the porch.
When he saw me he got up and I went running to him , he hugged me and twirled me around.
He leaned in and kissed me.
I returned the kiss and pulled him closer to me.
“ I missed you.” He said kissing my cheek.
“ It’s only been a week.” I chuckled.
“ That long.”
I laughed and kissed his jaw.
We sat on the porch and talked for a while. Alarik seemed to have hit the jackpot today , I might have some time left.
“ Can I ask you a question?” I said.
He chuckled. “ You wanna know how we can communicate telepathically?”
I was about to ask how but I forgot he can read everything I think off.
“ Yep.” He said.
I nudged him.
“ I don’t really know how , I did my own set of research but nothing came out of it. Only that there seemed to be a vampire able to do this centuries ago. But they killed him when he was young so.”
“ Things are really confusing.”
He nodded and put his arms around my shoulder.
“ You know that this is going to get worse with time right ? The more we start to like each other the worse it’s gonna be.”
My heart ached a little at his words , but I knew he was right.
“ You think we should stop ?”
He sighed. “ I would rather get caught then letting you go.”
I smiled and kissed him.
“ Me too. But something , somehow feels off.”
He turned to be.
“ Not my feelings for you. Something else.” I explained.
“ I don’t know if this is part of it but I had a weird dream last night ?” He said.
“ I thought vampires don’t sleep.”
He sighed and pinched my face. “ In the morning it’s all we do , sometimes.”
I rubbed my face. “ Tell me about this dream.”
“ We were at an old castle, you were still a werewolf but you wore more ancient clothes , I think from victorian era and I wore almost the same thing. But out of the blue a man came and stabbed me in the chest.”
My eyes went wide , somehow that hurt me instead. “ And?”
He shook his head. “ All I can remember after that , is your scream calling out my name.”
“ Yeah , imagine you were the one dreaming it and being killed , it hurts you know.”
I chuckled and rubbed his chest. “ It was only a dream.”
He put his hand on mine and his face darkened.
“ Was it?”
“ I don’t know , but I have never had such a dream so far.”
He nodded and stroked my hand.
But his face looked worried.
“ We will know with time Emrick. For now don’t think about it okay?”
I said kissing him.
Then he rolled his eyes.
Must mean time is up. I chuckled and got up , pulling him with me. When I kissed him , he kept his mouth on mine for another second before letting go.
“ Try to get out more often.”
I chuckled. “ Easier said than done.”
He kissed my forehead. “ See you soon Sierra.”
I squeezed his hand before running back to Alarik.
