I heard Blair's pulse quicken and my fangs grew as I felt myself get excited. I could see the panic behind her eyes and she pushed her chair away from me, jumping to her feet.

“No,” She said as I stepped towards her, “Max, stop this,”

I smirked, “What’s the problem? I can feel your excitement,”

Her back hit the wall and I quickly pressed myself against her, burying my face into her neck almost sinking my teeth in.

“Max!” Blair said, putting her hands on my chest, “What are you doing?”

“What I’ve wanted to do since I laid my eyes on you,” I said.

Her eyes shot open as I slammed my lips against hers. I groaned and I felt her resistance slowly drip away and my blood burnt as she kissed back. I knew I was rough with my hands, but I had to feel her.

Blair gasped as I dragged my hands up her body and grabbed her face tightly. Her tongue flicked against mine and I could hear the tear in my shirt as she gripped it. My hands explored every curve that I had missed and when my hand grabbed her ass she shoved me away.

“Wha-?” I started but then I heard Theo laugh. I pulled my jacket around my body when I spotted the rip in my shirt and Blair pulled her skirt back down to cover her ass. I pressed my lips together and ignored my fangs cutting into my bottom lip.

“A dhampir isn’t a common occurrence,” The guy said opening the door, “In most cases, a dhampir doesn’t survive the change and...did we interrupt something?”

“No,” I said, clearing my throat, “I came here to apologise,”


Blair nodded, “I’m ok. We...we had an argument just now,”

“Max!” Theo said punching me in the arm, “Xander told you to be nice,”

I cut my eyes to him and my fang poked out, “Don’t piss me off, brother,”

Theo's eyes went wide and he stepped back, “Sure,”

“I’m leaving,” I muttered and quickly left the room before Emily could ask if I was ok. There was no chance in hell I was going to stay in that room when all I wanted to do was strip Blair naked and worship the perfect body I loved.

I jogged up the stairs and didn’t stop until I reached my room. I slammed the door shut and pulled my shirt off, throwing it across the room. I ran my hands through my hair in frustration and kicked my bin.

“Fuck!” I yelled and fell face-first onto my bed, “Fuck, fuck, fuck.”

There was a knock on the door and I mumbled for them to come in.

“Sup, brother!” Aaron said jumping onto my back and slapping his hands on my bare back, “I’m bored. Dylan is still fucking Leila, Lei won’t play with me and Willow is at work. Callum is at the bar going over inventory,”

“What about Xander?” I muttered.

“I can’t find him but he is boring. He won’t play with me and you are my only option,”

I sighed, “I’m not in the mood to do anything,”

“Apart from Blair?”

I sat up quickly and Aaron grunted as he landed on the floor, “Don’t fucking start,”

“What? Did you kiss her? Did you? Oh my god, you kissed her!” He grinned widely, “Is that why I can smell her on you? Shit. I thought she has a boyfriend who she is in love with and what about-”

“Stop talking!” I shouted, “Yes she has a boyfriend, yes I kissed her and yes I wanted to do more than just kiss her,”

“Why did you kiss her knowing that she had a boyfriend? You should worry about him now. You know how dangerous males can be,”

I tutted and walked over to my wardrobe for another top, “I wasn’t going to kiss her but...I felt my control leave my body when she told me she wasn’t in love with her boyfriend,”


“I know she loves him. It’s obvious but she won’t ever love him the way she wants to,”

“And why is that?”

I turned to look at my brother, “Because she is still in love with me,”

“I don’t know why,” Aaron said, “You aren’t exactly a knight in shining armour,”

“No shit,” I scoffed, “I’m going to tell her why I had to break up with her,”

“Not a good idea. Xander has allowed father to leave his cell,” Aaron said and I could see the fear behind his eyes, “I don’t want to sound horrible but we have to make sure she doesn’t come here. Xander said we need to protect the girls that live here, especially Emily,”

“You think I will let father hurt her?”

“That isn’t what I said, Max. I’m just telling you what Xander said. I get that your heart broke when you were forced to leave her but can’t you sort your shit out once we deal with father?”

“And let her leave and mate her boyfriend? No chance. I have to make things right between us. I’m like an elastic band ready to snap and right now, she is the only one to stop that from happening,”

“Then pay a visit to Honey,” He said, “She’s more than willing to help you out when you need it. Once you’ve calmed down, then talk to her. But not here. It’s for the best,”

“How did you know about her?”

Aaron shrugged, “I heard you talking to her once when we were at the bar but that isn’t important and you know it,”


“Or you can work out and then we can play?”

I rolled my eyes towards my brother who was looking at me with puppy dog eyes. The bastard knew I could never say no to him.

“Are you that desperate?”

“Yes!” He exclaimed, “Everyone is too busy to want to spend time with me and I’m feeling lonely,”

“Aaron,” I frowned, “Is everything ok with you?”

“I’m feeling lonely,” He said quietly.

“Are you sure that is everything?”

Aaron nodded but I knew he was lying. I could feel how much he needed a brother right now and I nodded.

“Ok. Set the game up and I’ll join you,” I said and he grinned widely, “Just don’t cry when I beat your ass,”
