I've never felt so content in my entire life. Here I am curled around my beautiful mate feeling like we're the only ones here on earth. If someone were to tell me that my mate was going to be this beautiful vampire I would've labelled them insane and thrown them at rouges to put them out of their misery and what a great mistake that would've been.
I don't know what made me bring her here, but boy was I glad that I did. The look on her face when she laid her eyes on it was just as breath taking as the view in front of us. This place has always been my sanctuary, a place where I could just relax and collect my thoughts. No one from my pack knows about this place since it's not within our boundaries so being the Alphas' son does have some perks. I found this place just after my first shift; Tobias was begging me for a run and we had already ran around our territory five times but that just made him want to run further so we began running around just outside the boundaries and came across this place and decided to come here every full moon.
My head was on my mates' lap while she was leaning on my body with her legs out in front of her. She was gently cradling my head while staring in front of us while I was just taking in all her features and God were they beautiful.
"Stop staring.' She said while glancing at me through narrowed eyes and a small smile gracing her lips. Just wanting to tease her I moved my head closer to her face which I think was a mistake since I just ended up getting lost in her ocean-blue eyes.
Her eyes widened in surprise at my sudden closeness but they soon turned into amusement. She started to run her hand through the fur on my cheek while a smile played at her lips. She let out a sigh and shook her head.
"You're really something, you know that?" She asked while looking at me with eyes filled with so much warmth. If I were human right now I would've scoffed in her face and asked her that exact same question. Before I could really do anything in reply to her I turned my head and let out a yawn and I mean a full on yawn; my jaw was wide open with my eyes squeezed shut and my tongue curling. When I opened my eyes I felt moisture in them and it was like all my exhaustion just hit me right at that moment. I shook my head to try and shake it off but it was still there.
"I'm sorry I bore you so much." I hear while feeling her nudge me in the side playfully. I look to her and see amusement all over her features but soon changed to something else I couldn't quite make out since my eyelids were slowly coming down. I once again tried to shake it off but my mates' hand and voice stopped me.
"Go to sleep, you look exhausted." She said while guiding my head to her lap. I felt darkness slowly creeping over me so before it did I lifted my head a little and looked up into my mates' eyes pleadingly.
She chuckled and ran her hand along the top of my head before saying "I promise I'll be here when you wake up." and that was all I needed to let the darkness take over and for me to succumb to unconsciousness but not before I heard the sweet whisper from my mate;
Sweet dreams my beloved.
I could see the sky slowly starting to turn into a light blue color and decided that it was time to wake my beloved up. His head was on my lap with his body wrapped around me. I was so comfortable that I sort of just wanted to just lay here forever but I knew that the sun was going to come up in a couple of hours and needed to get back home before it rises. I started to lightly stroke his head and whispered wake up. I would call him by his name but I didn't know it sadly.
He started to stir but didn't wake up so I leaned down and started to gently shake him.
"Come on sleepy head, time to get up." I said this time slightly louder. Finally his eyes started to slowly open, wary with tiredness. He let out a great yawn where his tongue curled in before his eyes began to focus on me properly. He lazily looked me over with his eyes still slightly drooping closed. I grabbed his head and leaned in closer to him until our heads were touching.
"I have to go." I say with my eyes closed. What came was only silence so I opened my eyes and saw him just looking at me. "The sun will be up soon and I have to go home..." I trail off saying while he slowly started to nod his head in understanding. He let out a huff and slowly started to uncurl himself from around me. He stood up and stretched his body across the ground. I heard a few clicks here and there before he started to stand up straight.
I just sat there admiring his massive body and the sleek coat that covered it, but it was his eyes that make me lose my breath. They're so expressive that I can almost make out all the emotions that pass through them: almost. But the way he looks at me, it isn't filled with disgust and rejection like I thought it would be, instead they're with so much warmth it's like the sun is shining through them.
I must've been staring at him for quite a while since he started nudging me to get up. i muttered a sorry and got up quickly. As soon as I got up, he turned his body so I could get up on him. Just as I positioned myself properly on him he started sprinting back the way we came, not even giving me enough time to hold onto him properly which lead me to grip onto the few strands of fur I could get my hands on. I'm sure it would've hurt since I nearly ripped them out but I think the pain just made him run faster.
The amount of time it took to get to the waterfall was about an hour, give or take, compared to the time it took to get back here was probably only 10-20 minutes tops... so obviously it shows that he was in rush to get back and I have no clue why.
As soon as he stopped I quickly jumped off and stood in front of him with my hands in fists and on my hips.
"Why are you in such a rush for?" I asked while leaning forward a bit so we were making eye contact. He tilted his head an then pointed at the sky behind me with his snout. I turned and looed at the sky: the clouds were starting to turn different shades of pinks and oranges. It was beautiful, but I still didn't get why he was rushing.
"What about the sky?" I ask while turning back to face him. He then rolls his eyes and starts pointing at the sky and then pointing back at me. I must've looked confused because he then starts whining and shaking his head. He then resumes shaking his between me and the sky but while sort of barking at me as if he was trying to talk to me. I seriously at that moment wanted to laugh at how cute, yet ridiculous, he looked but then suddenly it clicked: he was warning me about the sun rising! That is so sweet.
"Oh, the sun is rising." I say while pointing at the sky and looking at him as if I just figured it out at the very moment. He sighs in relief before nodding his head. I couldn't hold it in any longer and just started laughing. That complete look of relief on his face was just too much for me to handle. I was vaguely aware of me falling on the ground but before I knew it I was laughing and rolling around in the grass, holding my sides with tears running down my face. Just as I was starting to gain my control I looked at my beloved which was a big mistake; his face was completely passive and he was sitting there aiting there with what, I'm guessing, his eyebrow raised obviously not impressed.
When I knew I would be able to talk properly and not burst out laughing I started to sit up with my legs crossed and wipe away the tears that were still in my eyes. I was still chuckling a bit when I looked up at him but the way he was looking at me made me lose my breath. I don't think I'll ever get used to the warmth he looks at me with, that warm gentle glow in his eyes made feel light inside my chest.
I quickly started to cough just so I could focus properly before standing up, with him standing up with me. I quickly started to dust myself off before I focused my attention on him.
"Thank you" I say while looking at him from beneath my eyelashes, all of sudden feeling shy again. "I had a really great time tonight. But I guess I should be going now. You probably have to go back to your pack right?" he nods his head at my question. I nod in understanding before standing up straight.
"Well I guess this is good-bye then." I say while giving him a small smile. There was a lump in my throat as he nodded his head once again. Without thinking I threw myself at him. I wrapped my arms around his neck and nuzzled my face into his neck, trying to inhale as much of his scent as possible since I new I would have to get rid of it before I went back home knowing that everyone will be there worrying about me.
I could feel him doing the same thing as me, nuzzling his face into my hair and inhaling my scent. Regrettably I started to unwrap myself from around him and gave him a peck on the top of his head.
"I better go." I say while standing up and turning around to face the direction my house is in. I was just about to leave before I remembered.
"Your pack was invited to a party this weekend right?" I ask while turning my head. I see him nod and I smile brightly at him.
"Well I guess I'll see you there then." I say before vanishing out of his sight.
Finally. I'll get to see what my beloved looks like in his human form.
