Emrick shot up to his feet and covered me with his body. My eyes went wide and put a hand on Emrick’s shoulder.
“ It’s okay. Just let me talk to him.”
Alarik was pulsing.
Emrick looked back at me and nodded , taking a step back.
I inched closer to Alarik.
“ I can explain.” I said.
Alarik chuckled angrily and grabbed my hand. “ You will explain when we get home.”
He started to pull me but soon stopped. Emrick was in front of him , blocking his way.
“ You better move , blood sucker.”
“ I won’t.”
They glared at each other. “ Emrick , just let him pass.” I whispered , already afraid of the consequences that Alarik caught us will be.
Emrick looked at me.
“ Are you sure?”
Let me speak to him alone , I’ll try to sneak away later.
Emrick sighed and moved aside.
Alarik pulled me with him.
I snatched a soft kiss from Emrick , before being pulled away by Alarik.
When we arrived home , everyone was asleep. Alarik pulled me to my room and threw me in locking the door behind him.
“ Explain now.” He said.
“ Before I do , can you promise me to keep this between us?”
He laughed sarcastically. “ I’ll decide later.”
My heart sank.
But I knew that if I didn’t tell him , it would make the situation worse so I sat on the bed and started to explain.
He heard everything without interrupting once , even when I tried to explain what we thought about the reincarnation.
When I finished , he looked at me and sighed.
“ Dammit Sierra.”
He rubbed his neck and came to sit near me.
“ I was seriously scared that he was sucking your blood or something.”
I smiled softly. “ He wouldn’t.”
“ How do you know?”
“ I just do.”
He sighed again. “ I don’t know what to think.”
I arranged myself on the bed and turned to face him.
“ I hope you know that I tried to fight off these feelings at first. I know I’m gonna be the clan leader soon and especially falling in love with a vampire is the worse thing to do. But I can’t control my feelings Alarik , they are simply growing day by day and I can’t stop them.”
Alarik looked at me and smiled softly. “ Worst time to fall in love.”
I chuckled and nodded. “ Yeah I know.”
He pulled my hand in his and squeezed. “ I won’t tell your father but you have to promise me something.”
“ What ?”
“ You can’t see him again.”
My eyes went wide and I retreated my hand. “ What ?!”
“ Sierra , this is dangerous and if what you said it’s true , your father will kill him again.”
My eyes went wide. “ I-”
“ If you love him , it’s better this way , at least until the first of may. Maybe it was all a stupid misunderstanding and all this story about being reincarnated was a stupid mistake but it’s better to be safe.”
“ He’s right.”
“ Yeah. He’s right Sierra. We should do what he suggests.”
My eyes started to water.
You mean I can’t see you again?
“ No! No , Sierra just until may first , I can’t live without you , we are going to Italy remember.”
My heart ached. I could feel his heart aching just like mine.
I love you Emrick.
My heart skipped a beat and I felt it squeeze.
“ I love you Sierra, more than you know. If dying is the only way to love you than I’m ready to die.”
Don’t say that !
My eyes couldn’t keep open with the tears.
“ I will say that ! Cause it’s the truth. Sierra , no matter what , death can’t tear us apart. If this reincarnation shit is real than no matter what we will always meet again.”
I nodded and wiped my eyes.
Just be safe and don’t come close to my house until that day okay ?
“ Okay. I love you Sierra.”
And I , love you.
When I couldn’t hear his anymore , I broke down and cried. Alarik hugged me to him.
“ Where you just talking to him ?”
“ This telepathy thing is neat.”
I chuckled despise the circumstances. This is for the best.
But doing for the best is the most painful thing I had done so far.
