Chapter 7

After that night , I didn’t see Emrick again. I didn’t move from my room. My father was upset with me , but mostly I didn’t want to leave. Seeing Emrick is dangerous.

“Don’t let it happen again..” The me in the dream said.

I will trust myself and from now on , I won’t see Emrick again. If being with me endangerous his life , I prefer living without him.

But not seeing him , cut at my heartstrings.

Now that I can’t be with him , my feeling have doubled , tripled the least.

But it’s for the best. It was never a good idea from the start , what were we thinking?

We are both soon to be clan leaders. We need to care for our clans.

Being in love is no excuse.

Love?

My eyes went wide and I crushed on the floor.

Love ?

Alarik bursted into the room and pulled me to him.

“ Sierra …... what wrong ? Sierra!”

Eyes started to fill my eyes.

I love him.

I actually love him.

Alarik pulled me to him and hugged me.

“ Everything will be alright Sierra. Calm down.”

He stroked my hair and whispered softly into my ear. He then pulled me up and put me in bed.

“ Rest.” He smiled.

I grabbed his hand. “ Don’t leave me alone.”

He sat down and put his other hand above mine.

“ Never.”

I closed my eyes and through tears , my mind went blank.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“ Sierra ?”

This voice seems familiar.

“ Sierra darling, wake up.”

I opened my eyes , to mind my mother pulling the curtains open.

“ Mum?”

“ Oh look who’s awake.” She chuckled.

“ Mum!” I ran to her and hugged her.

“ Oh , so much love. What’s the occasion?”

I shook my head.

She chuckled and kissed my hair.

“ Sweetheart , we are late for the ball. Put the dress on.”

She smiled and pushed me to the bathroom.

When my eyes finally adjusted , I noticed it wasn’t my room at all.

It was a completely different room.

When I looked outside , I saw miles and miles of meadow.

My eyes went wide.

A carriage was making its way to this house.

A Carriage…..

I looked at the dress my mother gave me.

It’s the same dress of the dream.

Wait ?

I looked in the mirror.

I’m her.

Touching my face , I almost winced at how my fingers are so cold.

“ Hurry darling.” My mother said from the next room.

I composed myself , this is the chance I get to know more about this crazy situation.

I washed and put the dress on.

It was a beautiful violet dress , with a corset and princess skirt.

Victorian era.

When I opened the door , my mother smiled and she helped me do my hair and makeup.

I really missed this.

Although it was the Victorian Era , makeup was almost the same.

“ Mum , what day is it?”

My mother looked at me and chuckled.

“ It’s the First of May dear.”

“ What year?”

“ 1870.” My mother chuckled and stroked my hair.

First of May 1870.

My mother smiled and put the brush on the small table.

“ There ready.”

I looked at the mirror , somehow the girl looking at me wasn’t me at all.

My mother kissed my head and extended her hand.

“ Shall we go , your father already left to go give his regards to the hosts.”

I nodded and followed her.

The carriage ride was dreadful.

My mother chuckled. “ When you run , you never feel sick , but on a carriage you always feel sick.”

Run ?

Am I still a werewolf ?

When we entered the house , it was luxurious , I had to shut my own mouth. It was one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen.

Everyone greeted my mother and me and when we entered , everyone was dancing and laughing.

It was more joyful than the one I had just attended.

“ Sierra?”

What ?

Emrick ?

I heard a chuckle. “ You still haven’t got used to this ? It’s been over a year already. Plus I told you , I would sneak into this party.”

A year ?

Suddenly I see a man making his way to me, he was definitely Emrick , this time he was wearing a green suit with a white mask.

He bowed to my mother first. She smiled and nodded.

Then he turned to me. “ May I ?”

I looked at my mother and she nodded.

I took his hand and he pulled me to the dancefloor. Like before , I knew how to dance.

“ You ready for tonight?”

Ready for what ?

He looked at me and furrowed his brows.

“ You don’t remember that we planned to run away together today?

My eyes went wide.

I’m so sorry , I had a restless night.

His face softened and his eyes were worried.

“ You are still having those nightmares?”

I nodded.

“ You’ll be okay. We will be okay.” He whispered.

After the song , he pulled me away.

Everyone was too engulfed into their own chat , to notice our exit.

He pulled me through the back door and started to run.

I had to removed my shoes to keep up with him .

Suddenly he halted.

I almost went crashing into him.

“ What?”

“ We have company.”

I looked to where he was looking and my eyes went wide.

No.

My father was looking at us , with fury I have never seen in my life.

I stepped in front of Emrick.

“ Father stop this.”

My mouth was moving on its own.

He then suddenly moved in front of me.

I have never seen someone so fast.

“ I tried so hard to protect you , from falling in love with this vampire , over and over again. And in every life , you end up loving him. Why Sierra?”

My eyes went wide.

“ What?”

He hit me in the face and I went flying.

When my back and head hit the floor , I gasped for air.

Everything was thumping.

I couldn’t see , I couldn’t hear.

When I arranged my head , I saw the horror.

My father hand was in Emrick’s Chest.

My mouth flew open and I screamed.

The light went out and everything was blank.

My eyes flew opened , my hand was trembling , tears started to fall from my eyes. Everything was turning.

I was back into my old room.

Alarik was sleeping in the chair next to me.

Emrick.

I have to see Emrick.

Then I opened the window and jumped out.

It was alright pitch black , but I ran , I knew where he was.

Emrick.

Emrick

Emrick.

Suddenly I heard a whisper. “ Sierra.”

I stopped in my tracks , panting , crying.

Suddenly , I saw him.

He was standing a few feet away.

Alive.

I gasped and went running to him.

He opened his arms and I hugged him.

“ Emrick.” I cried.

“ Shh. It’s okay Sierra.”

He hugged me closer and stroked my back.

Suddenly , he pulled me up and put his arms under my feet.

He moved us to a safer place.

When he set me down under a tree, I was calm enough to speak.

“ You-”

He put his fingers on my lips.

“ I know everything. I heard you scream and everything came flooding in my head.”

My eyes watered and he pulled me to him.

“ What…. What is going on?”

He shook his head and kissed my forehead. “ I don’t know."
