It was getting a bit dark, around 7pm but I still didn’t feel tired. Damien’s offer still hasn’t left my mind.
I can help you with your training if you want. I’ve attended those exams just 3 years ago and I passed with flying colours!
I can’t stop thinking about him. Those mesmerising green eyes, those sky-high cheekbones and that obnoxious smirk! I’ve never been so attracted to someone! I met him less than 12 hours ago but it feels like I’ve known him for an eternity. I crave his touch, his body or just seeing him smile, sends goosebumps all over my body. I’m not supposed to appear vulnerable. I’m supposed to be the badass guardian who can defend her realm from anything instead, here I am swooning over my mate! Here I am, working my butt off, trying to prepare for the Battle exams. Here I am, having no fun in my senior year holiday of BD. The last 2 weeks that I can relax, that I can let loose, that I can truly enjoy or that I don’t need to put up a show for everyone to think that I’m this bitch who doesn’t give a fuck about other people or their lives. My besties and Lily are the only ones who truly know me. The weak side of me.
Ok! That’s it! I need to have some fun! Like right now!
Suddenly, I jumped up on my feet when I saw a white light from the tree that Damien created the portal on. Seconds later, he walked through it and he looked hotter than I’ve ever seen.
His black tank top was soaked with sweat. His biceps were huge! Damn! He smirked at me. That only increased his level of sexiness!
“Enjoying the view, Hayley?” that’s when I realise that I’ve been staring at him for about 10 seconds straight. I need to get out of this before I turn into a tomato.
“Actually, yes!” his eyes widened at my answer. “The forest looks quite beautiful today!”
He chuckled a bit. “Admit it, Hayley! You can’t keep your eyes off of me!”
“Speak for yourself!” I said with a smirk.
“Is that a challenge?”
“You bet it is! In fact, a challenge that you’re easily going to lose because you’re the one drooling over me!”
“The kitten has got some claws after all! Well, I don’t think so because your jaw was inches away from the floor when you saw me!” I knew that he was probably right but thinking about the way he looked at me, with so much desire, made me realise that he wanted this as much as I did.
“Every girl loves me!”
“Not this girl!” I challenged.
“Oh, you’re on!”
“Ok, let’s see if we can go through a week without “drooling” over each other! I feel like this is more of a challenge for you than me!” Wow! Am I talking or is someone possessing my body? Cause I’ve never talked to someone with this much challenge, so much desire.
“We’ll start tomorrow!” Damien said as he walked away.
Finally! Some fun! This has gotta be easy!
