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.
My eyes went wide and I crushed on the floor.
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.
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.
“ 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.
I looked at the dress my mother gave me.
It’s the same dress of the dream.
I looked in the mirror.
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.
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.”
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.
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?”
“ 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.
“ We have company.”
I looked to where he was looking and my eyes went wide.
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.
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.
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.
Suddenly I heard a whisper. “ Sierra.”
I stopped in my tracks , panting , crying.
Suddenly , I saw him.
He was standing a few feet away.
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.
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."
