They reached the Aether coven house just before midnight. Everything was eerily quiet. The house was a big creepy wooden house that was just outside of Bellows. Luca could smell blood. It smelled rotten. The stench was everywhere. Luca followed it and found some witches completely torn apart. What the hell? Was there some other beast around? Goddess...he had to find Raven. The bloodbath was all over the house, there were at least 30 witches that had been living there and they were all dead.
Mate. Zeus howled. Luca saw her. Laying motionless next to a dismembered witch. He ran over to her with Sarah in tow. She was still breathing. At least there was that....but if she was fine then who did all this?
She opened her eyes. They were their beautiful silver colour. Luca's heart leaped. She was back. And she had eradicated a whole witch coven by herself.
"Mate.." She smiled weakly then blacked out again. Luca let out a breath of relief just as he heard Sarah let out a sob behind him.
Sunlight streamed through the windows and hit my face. I opened my eyes slowly. I was on a bed. I remembered this bedroom. Luca's bedroom. When had he gotten to me? I sat up slowly, my heart happy that I was back. I took one of Luca's pillows and inhaled deeply. The smell of my mate always calming me.
Raven. She answered. I nearly sobbed. I hadn't realised how much I had missed her.
Thank you for bringing me back. I said to her.
Life was meaningless without you. Shadow answered and I felt her love pour all over my body.
My mouth felt dry. I needed liquids. I got out of bed, I was dressed in one of Luca's shirt. I smiled and bounded off to the showers.
When I got down to the kitchen I found Sarah busy baking with a beautiful little girl.
"Mommy?" The bright eyes girl looked up at Sarah and showed her the drawing she had made with in the flour on the marble counter. My eyes watered. I had missed so much.
Sarah was about to answer her when her gaze fell on me. Her eyes bulged out from their sockets and she ran to me. She enveloped me in a bone crushing hug sobbing like a baby.
"Oh Raven!" she cried.
"Sarah...I'm so sorry!" I sniffed. I was full of flour.
"Sorry for what?" Sarah asked.
"I put everybody in danger...you broke your leg. I was gone for so long!" I pulled away from her.
"Raven you're so stupid! None of that matters!" She laughed and it turned into crying again. "I'm just happy that you're here...and not dead."
"I'm glad I'm not dead too." I smiled at her. "Now who is this princess?"
"I'm Emily." The little girl stood up proudly on her stool, giving me a toothy grin. I walked over to her. She was perfect, with little red curls and beautiful brown eyes.
"Nice to meet you Emily." I smiled at taking her hand in mine. "Sarah we have a lot to catch up on, but first I need to find Luca."
"Of course." Sarah smiled knowingly. "He should be in his office."
I smiled at her and headed towards Luca's office. I put my head through the door. He had his back facing the door, as he gazed out of the window. He took in a deep breath and I saw him relax a little. I closed the door behind me.
"Luna...you should be resting." He said and turned to face me. Goddess this man was gorgeous. He was sporting a little stubble which made him even more delicious.
"I think we need to talk about a few things." I said taking a seat in one of his chairs.
"Like what?" He asked.
"Let's start with the dagger, what happened to it?" I asked.
"We believe it was destroyed, after you stabbed that demon, it vanished. We weren't able to find it." Luca answered. I could see that he was thinking about that day and the loss that it had bring him. I changed the subject.
"What about Stella and your daughter?"
"We did the DNA test. That girl is not mine. But I did meet her, and she looks a bit lost to me. I'm going to have a talk with Loche, see if they can take them in, I'll bring Tara with me just as a little extra persuasion." Luca nodded, happy with his plan. Then he turned to me. "Is there anyone else with a grudge against you that I should know about?"
I laughed. "No my Alpha."
"Good." he smiled at me. "Now please go and get some more rest, after all you've been through you really need it."
"No. I'm tired of being away from you." I said approaching him. He looked at me warily then sighed, giving in to the puppy dog eyes I was throwing at him. He crushed me to him, inhaling my scent.
"I missed you so fucking much." He whispered.
"I can't believe I forgot you." I said melting in his arms. I looked up at him. "You know there are a few things that I still don't remember."
"What?" He looked at me alarmed.
"Like what those lips taste like...can you remind me?"
He smiled at me, lust filling his eyes. "With pleasure." He brought his lips down to mine gently. He tasted like coffee and heaven.
I moaned in his mouth then pulled away. "Want to take this to the bedroom?"
"No. I want to take you right here."
