I wake up to Nico’s snoring. I try and get out of the bed but he had his arm was around my waist.
I look down at my handsome man and kiss his forehead.
“Where are you going.” He said.
“I need to shower. And I’m hungry.” I pouted.
“I’ll get your food, go shower. I’ll be back.” He quickly put on some clothes and left the room.
I get out of the bed and went to shower. I put on booty shorts and a grey sweater. I put my hair in a messy bun. I leave the bathroom and pick up my clothes from off the ground. I spread the bed and set up my phone.
“What’s taking him so long?” I said to myself.
A knock came at the door but I knew it wasn’t Nico.
I opened it slowly and it was his whole family. When I mean his family I mean, his parents, Leith, Tobias, Arabella, and Veronica.
“Your majesties.” I said as I bowed.
“Where is my brother?” Veronica said in a moody voice.
“He went to the kitchen.” I said getting annoyed but her attitude.
She shoves open the door. “We’ll wait here.” She said and everyone else came in.
I close the door and walk back to the chair.
“Please put on some pants Elena.” Tobias said.
I smirk. “Why?”
“Because you look half naked.”
“As you wish, my King.” I said, bowing.
I go into the closet of a bedroom and orbed a sweatpants for me to wear.
It nice to have my magic back.
I walk back out.
“I’m going to go look for King Nicolas.” I said and walked towards the couch.
“Can you get me a biscuit.” Tobias said.
“Would you like anything else.”
“Are you sure?” I said, know Tobias would want something else.
“Actually, yes I do want something else. Get me some coffee, three pumps of cream and cinnamon. Make a heart with it.” He said.
I leave the room and go on a hunt for my man. He was in the kitchen but not with who I thought he would talking with.
“Hey?” I said.
“Elena, how’s it going?” Kevin said.
“Great.” I said as I made Tobias’s coffee.
“Well, I have to get going.” He said and left the kitchen.
I put the cream in and make the cinnamon heart.
“Your family is in the room.” I said sounding depressed.
“Hmm, and who is that for?”
“Tobias. You want one?”
“No, but here’s you breakfast.” He said and gave me eggs, toast and bacon.
“I don’t eat pork or beef, I only eat chicken.” I said.
“Oh. Well, eat everything else.”
I hurry and eat my breakfast and get the coffee and biscuit. We walk back to the room. When we get there Leith was in Nicos’ office chair.
“Family it’s very good to see you on this fine morning.” He said chirpy.
I give Tobias his coffee and biscuit.
“It’s hot be careful.” I said as I handed it to him.
“Aw, thank Gabby.” He said.
“How dare you. I am not Gabby.” I said.
“What, your being nice.”
“Ew, stop. I’m only being nice because of Ellie, if not I would have let you burn yourself.”
“Yes. Have a horrid day.” I said as I walked away and sat on the couch.
“Now that you two are done. What do you need.” Nico said.
“Oh, I’m just her to protect her.” Tobias said. “Who knows what will happen.”
“We need to talk about what a little birdie told us.” His father said.
You know I still don’t know his fathers’ name.
“It’s Tom.” Aria said.
“No.” She said laughing.
“What did that birdie say?” Nico asked.
“It said we should kill your pet.” Veronica said, looking at me with rage.
Tobias vamp-speeds over and stands in front of me. “No one is touching her!” He growled.
“Why?” Nico said through clenched teeth.
“Because they want to test a theory.” She said.
“Who gave you this information?”
“Politician Thomas.” She said.
Me and Tobias growl.
“I thought he was dead.” I said quietly.
“Me too. I guess our sources were wrong.” Tobias said.
I look at Leith and he had a smirk. He was enjoying this.
Tobias takes my hand and walks me to the balcony.
“I don’t want to go outside. I want water.” I whined.
“Stop being a baby and come.” He said and bragged me out there, closing the door behind him.
I sit down and think of a solution.
“Hey. Want some bourbon.”
I take off the lid and talk a big gulp, then hand it back to him.
I look out at the scenery. The alcohol was hitting me fast.
“Hey, are you sure that was bourbon, it was pretty strong?”
He looks. “Oop, it was whiskey.”
“Can we go inside. The sunlight is hurting my eyes.” I said. The sun part was lie but nobody gotta know.
He grabs my hand and walks inside.
“You don’t need to hold my hand. I’m not a baby.” I said with closed eyes.
“Unless you want to topple over, I insist.” He said and laid me down on the couch. “Go to sleep.”
“No, I’m not tired.”
I hear him walk away from me. I hear a door open. I hear voices, I couldn’t understand what they were saying. I felt weight on my stomach, I open my eye and there was tall figure with no face.
“Lloyd?” I said, but no words came out.
He came up off my stomach and stood in front of me.
“Wake up.” He said in a hoarse voice.
Then he touches my arm. He was cold to the touch, he was death his self.
I jolt up in the couch. I look around. My sight was blurry. I could hear the voices, they were mostly Nico’s voice, he was yelling.
When my sight got unblurry, his mother was crying, his father and Leith were yelling at him. His sisters looked stressed.
I stand up and walk toward the door.
“Where are you going.” Veronica said.
I ignore her.
I open the door, boy was there. He comes in with two boxes and a bag.
“Lady Elena.” He said. “Lord Niklaus wanted you to have this.” He said and left the room.
He gave me a small box. I open it and there was a blood necklace.
“Oh god. This man and his gifts.” I said shaking my head.
“What’s wrong.” Tobias said walking over to me.
“Klaus bought me a blood necklace.”
“Wow. Now that’s what I call a brother.”
“Ugh, I told him not to buy me one. He can be so difficult sometimes.”
I look at it and smile.
“Why would someone buy you, a simple human. A blood necklace.” Veronica said.
“I don’t know.” I said as I put it down. “I’m going back to sleep, and if you all could please lower your voices.” I said and laid back down on the couch. I felt someone pull a sheet over me.
I smile and I fall back asleep.
I room my eyes to noise. I sit up and look out into the dark night.
“I’m done talking with you father you can not stop me from marrying Princess Ameilya. End of discussion.” Nico said.
I stand up and walk towards them. I stand next to Tobias.
It’s a sad. My family always supported me though my good and bad and Nico has no one to turn to. Even if my parents knew my decision was wrong they would still have my back, they would do it so I could see the good and the bad, so then I would be able to make better choices. I could tell that Nico never had that, he was what to do and when to do it, he never had a say.
My thought her interrupted when I felt a stinging sensation on my cheek. I place my hand on my cheek. I look up and see Veronica staring at me a look that could kill.
“What makes you so special. Why are you getting better treatment then us royals. You privileged little bitch. You deserve to be punish. You walk up in here and act like you little miss innocent. I read you records, I saw all the kids you kill at your school.” She said.
Tears were streaming down my face.
How does she know about that.
“I have my reasons why I kill those evil, vile things. You don’t know how it feel to come from the top to be dropped all the way to the bottom. You won’t know how it feels until you walk a mile in my shoes..” I screamed at her.
She shrieked, she slapped me again.
“Tell me those reason why you killed 6 little children.” She shouts at me.
“They needed to be extinguished. They wouldn’t listen to reason so I killed them. It’s kill or be killed. What would you would’ve done. They killed other children just for the satisfaction, they were never alive from the day they left their mother’s womb. When you watch something kill just to see it suffer, you’ll understand. And for you information I’ve kill more than 6 people.” I said.
She was about to slap me when Tobias stopped her. “Save that for tomorrow.” He said.
She screams and storms out of the room.
I run my hand down my face.
“Damn.” I said.
“What do you mean wait for tomorrow.” His father said.
“I’m tired, I’m going back to sleep.” I said.
“Yes, I would like for all of you to leave.” Nico said.
I could feel his anger through the mate bond.
“But.” His mother said.
“No buts. I’m marring her and we are not kill my pet. Now leave.” He said in a demanding tone.
They leave without a second thought.
When the door closed Nico ran over to me. Holding my face.
“Are you okay.” He said.
“Yes, I’m fine. I just want to sleep.” I said groggy.
“Okay.” He said, picking me off my feet and placed me in the bed and he pulls the covers over me.
“Thanks Tobias. You saved our sisters’ ass.” Nico said.
“No problem. Goodnight little man.” Tobias said and left the room.
I get snug in the bed and wait for Nico to join me. Be he never came into the bed.
“Nico, where are you.” I said.
“In the chair.”
“Why don’t you come in the bed.”
“Hold on.” He said sounding impatient.
I get out of the bed and take uff my sweatpants. Show off my booty shorts.
“Are you going to come now.” I said.
He doesn’t say a thing.
I take off my sweater, showing my tank top with no bra on.
“How about now.”
He twitches but doesn’t do anything else.
I was about to take off my tank top but instead I walked towards him seductively. I stand in front of him and sat on his lap. I kissed him and kissed down his jaw.
“What are you doing.” He said in a husky voice.
“Trying to get you come in the bed.”
He doesn’t say anything else.
I slowly take off my shirt. I throw the shirt on the floor and look him in the eye. I watch as his eye rake my almost naked body.
“Please come to bed, even if you just lay down with me until I fall asleep.” I pouted.
He kept on roaming.
“Can I get my cuddle buddy?”
He still didn’t say a thing.
“Are you thinking about what Veronica said.”
My eye start to get teary.
Does he not love me anymore?
Does he hate me?
“I don’t hate you. I’m just thinking.” He said.
“Well, can you think later. I would like you in the bed.” I smiled.
“I would like you with your shirt, then we can go in the bed.” He said and I quickly put on my shirt and followed him to the bed.
We get on the bed and spoon.
“Good night, Nico.” I said.
“Goodnight my love.” He said and kissed my head.
I smile and fall asleep in his arms.
