I tossed and turned. Something wasn’t right, something was missing.
I opened my eyes and looked around. Asher was gone.
I dragged myself out of bed and walked into the hallway. I couldn’t sleep without Ash, it didn’t feel right.
I slowly walked downstairs and around until I found a room with the light on.
Maybe Asher is in there.
I opened the door and walked inside.
Jay, Mr. Mitchell, Asher, and three guys I didn’t know, were standing around a desk.
I instantly felt embarrassed for intruding. The first excuse that popped into my mind was “I was trying to find the bathroom.”
When Asher heard me he walked over and put his arm around my waits.
I felt safer when I was close to him.
“It’s her.” The tallest of the three men I didn’t know, said.
“You know me?” I asked, confused.
“No, they don’t.” Ash told me.
“Why don’t we go sit in the living room and I’ll explain everything.” The taller one of the three men suggested.
We all nodded and made our way to the living room.
Once we all sat down the larger of the three men introduced himself and his brothers.
“I am Hakkon, and these are my brothers Lorenzo and Malikiah.” Hakkon said, and all three of them bowed.
Um, why were they bowing?
“Well let’s get started.” said Lorenzo.
He had shoulder length wavy black hair like his brothers, but he had blue eyes, where as Hakkon had green eyes and Malikiah had brown eyes.
“We have come today to bring the living prophecy back to the kingdom where she will be safe from the danger that is coming.” Hakkon began.
“What and who is a prophecy?” I asked.
“In our case a prophecy is a werewolf who was blessed by our God Lupercus, while still in the womb. He/she is said to have great powers, and was blessed for one purpose.” Hekkon continued.
“What’s the purpose?” I asked.
This was really interesting. I wonder who the unlucky person is who got stuck with such a big responsibility.
“To save the werewolves. All we know is that we are in grave danger, and without the living prophecy, our race will be completely whiped out.”
I looked around and saw Jay, Ash and Mr. Mitchell’s faces pale.
“Who is this ’living prophecy?” I asked.
“Liza, you are the living prophecy.” Lorenzo said calmly.
Now it was my turn to pale. All the blood rushed out of my face.
What? I couldn’t! I don’t even have powers!
I voiced my concerns and the three men that came to bring me back to their kingdom looked nervous.
“You just haven’t uncovered your powers yet. You need to come back to the kingdom with us immediately so you can start your training.” Malikiah said urgently.
“I’m not going without Asher, or Jay.” I told them.
I don’t know why I included Jay but I had the feeling that he was suppose to come.
“Our instructions were to bring back you, not you and all your friends.” Hakkon stated.
“I don’t care what your instructions are, if you want me, your gonna get them too.” I snapped.
“Lorenzo, Malikiah.” Hakkon got their attention and nodded towards me.
Before I knew what I was doing I put my hands out in front of me and pushed the air around me in their direction.
All three of them went flying backwards and were pinned to the wall.
“It’s Asher, Jay, and I, or no one!” I growled in a voice that made even me flinch.
They nodded their heads frantically, their eyes practically popping out of the sockets.
When I was convinced, I put my hands down.
They fell to the ground and just laid there for a minute, too scared to move.
I looked around at the others and saw them staring at me in shock and horror.
This pissed me off.
“Stop looking at me like that!” I snapped, and stomped out of the room.
What the hell just happened?
One minuet Hakkon, Lorenzo and Malikiah are arguing with Liza, then in the blink of an eye they are pinned against the wall by some invisible force.
I guess the prophecy really is true. Liza had powers, and she had to save the werewolf race.
I was proud that I had such an important mate, but it also scared me. Jealous people want the powerful people dead.
I couldn’t let my little mate die!
I couldn’t stand being this far away from her right now! How could I ever be away from her for the rest of my life?
Thinking about losing Liza was painful, and made me miss her even though she’s just upstairs.
I ran upstairs and into her room.
Before she could react I wrapped her in my arms and held onto her like she was my lifeline. Scratch that, she is my lifeline.
I pulled away a little so I could look into her eyes.
“I love you.” I whispered, before crushing my lips to hers, for the first time ever.
She gasped in shock, and I hesitated for a moment and then deepened the kiss.
After the initial shock wore off she responded passionately.
My tongue explored her mouth, committing every detail to memory.
A couple minuets later I had to break away.
One, for air, and two, because my wolf was screaming at me to mark her, and I know she didn’t want that right now.
Now I have to go take a cold shower.
I pecked Liza on the lips before making my way to the bathroom.
Asher kissed me. He kissed me!
I finally had my first kiss!
Long after he disappeared into the bathroom I was still standing where I was when he kissed me. I didn’t move an inch.
This couldn’t be real. It’s probably just a dream.
I pinched myself but didn’t wake up.
I touched my lips and sure enough they were slightly swollen.
I grinned like an idiot and plopped down on my bed. Reliving the kiss over and over again.
After a while I snapped out of it and started packing.
How long was I going for? Would I make it out alive? What happened downstairs?
“Are you alright Liza?” Asher asked, suddenly behind me.
“Don’t sneak up on me like that!” I scolded.
“I’ve been out of the bathroom for half an hour, I didn’t sneak up on you.”
“Oh. I guess I was just really lost in thought.”
“Are you scared?” He asked after several moments of silence.
I looked down at my hands resting on my lap. “A little.” I confessed.
“Really?” I looked up into his eyes and saw the fear.
He nodded and pulled me close.
“I don’t want to lose you.” He whispered, pain laced his voice.
He really was worried.
“I have powers, remember? I can take care of myself. It’s you I’m worried about. How are you going to protect yourself?”
“Trust me baby, I can take care of myself.” He said, a hint of amusement creeping into his tone.
“We should go downstairs to see what’s going on.” He said after several minuets of comfortable silence.
