Amara

Being with Eric at the library was the last thing I remember before I somehow blacked out. We were planning how to go about our project when two huge people approached us. I don’t know exactly what happened in the next several minutes after that, but I felt a sting on my right shoulder and everything had turned bizarre. It was like we were walking but being dragged out, but neither I nor Eric protested. When we were finally outside the library, we were tossed inside a certain van and everything suddenly went pitch black. I can’t remember much about who took us or why we were taken, all I know is that Storm will come for me and will find me no matter what.

When I gained consciousness, I realized that my hands and feet were tied and I was lying on the cold floor of a certain cell and Eric was in another cell right in front of mine. He was trying to say something to me, but everything sounded muffled and gibberish then I lost consciousness again. I didn’t know what was going on, but I’ve had glimpses of certain events that took place. It was like I was coming in and out of deep sleep for a really long time. I felt cold and every part of my body was aching.

At times, I’d hear Storm calling out to me, but whenever I tried doing the same thing, my mind shuts down instantly. I wanted to push myself up and I willed myself to shift, but none of my body parts wanted to listen. It’s as if I’m paralyzed and couldn’t do anything. I’m also not sure if I was imagining things but I think I saw Eric kick the cell door open like it was nothing. A few wolves which I’m guessing are rogues went after him and he ran off and disappeared somewhere.

I was afraid for him because I thought he’s going to die, but he showed up again and I was relieved until a larger wolf came charging at him. I watched in horror as the lone wolf came snapping at him, but he started moving at lightning speed, and at the last minute, he ripped its heart out with his own bare hands. Perhaps it was the shock I felt that knocked me out once more.

The next episode I remember was me dangling on Eric's shoulder as he carried me caveman style up a steel ladder. I think he was muttering stuff to me when I tried to lift my head up, but I couldn't tell if those words were good ones or bad ones. It took some time before we got to the top and I didn't bother to open my eyes once I felt the cold air hit my entire body. I just knew that we were outdoors somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Personally, even if we're not a hundred percent safe yet, at least we're no longer trapped and there's a higher chance of us surviving out here than down there.

Eric had placed me on the ground for a few minutes before lifting me up again bridal style this time. I was endlessly lolling unable to get my motor skills running. Whatever they gave me did a number on me. I'm just wondering why I'm the only one who's in this state while my companion here is as mobile and healthy as a horse. I have so many unanswered questions. I was about to fall asleep again when I heard a growl.

"Careful alpha, we don't want your mate to get hurt now do we?" Eric called out and I felt so many emotions rush through me. He's here, my mate is here. Storm came for me like I knew he would. I'm going to be with him again and that's the most important thing. They've spoken to each other a few more times and the absolute last thing I heard was Eric telling Storm things about me that no one knows.

I woke up jolting upright with my heart pounding madly in my chest. I slapped a hand on my forehead because I felt like my head was going to split in two. I was disoriented for a while, wondering if all the things I saw were just a dream, but I know in my heart that everything happened. I took in shallow breaths and shut my eyes tight because I was afraid of what I might see if I open them and look around. "Easy..." Storm whispered as he pulled me back down beside him. I tucked my head under his chin and buried my face on his chest. I suddenly felt vulnerable and before I could get myself in check, tears started running down my cheeks. I was overwhelmed with both being scared and feeling safe. I wasn't particularly hurt, but I don't know for sure if the wolves who took us have allies that could come back for me.

Storm's hold tightened around me and he kept kissing the top of my head. "Shhh...You're okay now. You're safe. I'm here," Storm reassured me as he rubbed his hands up and down my back. I lifted my head up to look at him and I saw the worry in his eyes. "What happened?" I croaked. "Baby, you need to rest. I promise to tell you all about it tomorrow," Storm said. But I didn't feel tired anymore. All I wanted to do was to glue myself to him and cling to him more than I possibly can right now.

I slid my hands under his shirt running them up from his washboard abs to his muscular chest. I wanted more than that so I grazed my lips on his jaw down to his neck. "What are you doing?" He groaned. "I want to feel you," I explained and he pulled one of my hands up to his lips and kissed it before lowering his head to find mine. "As much as I want you now, you really need to go back to sleep," he said breaking free from our kiss. "But, I need you. I want you. Please?" I desperately begged and he looked at me with a conflicting gaze. "You're going to be the death of me woman," he chuckled and that was all it took for me to climb on top of him.
