Chapter 14


After Dr Olsen left I began feeling the urge to use the toilet. I sighed, how I wished to have a bathroom in the room. As I removed the blanket and slowly moved my legs over the edge of the bed, the pain wasn't as bad as last night.

Standing up, my legs were wobbly like jelly but I managed to keep standing on my feet holding the nightstand. I stood there for a few seconds getting used to the pain of my ribs. Then I slowly made my way to the door, holding the side of my chest wincing every time I made a step.

Halfway to the bathroom, Olivia spotted me in the corridor leaning against the wall and ran towards me "what are you doing out of bed?"

"Toilet" I whispered.

"Ok, I'll come with you. Don't want you to fall and break more bones"

I rolled my eyes at her and she glared at me in return. Once we reached the bathroom I did my business and washed my face. Then slowly headed back into the room. Once Olivia helped me into the bed she offered she would bring me breakfast.

Ten minutes later she was back with a tray full of food. I decided to go the easy way since my throat was still painful grabbing a yoghurt and a smoothie. She smiled at my choice. "Did the doctor come by?" She asked raising her eyebrows.

I nodded grabbing my phone off the nightstand and typing in 'he said I am healing but shouldn't use my voice too much' after she read it she nodded.

"Hopefully the drug will be out of your system in a few hours so you can heal"

'Yea hopefully' I mouthed.

"That was a very strong drug they gave you. The one we use usually wear off in a few hours. This one is in your body for two days and is still there" she shook her head "I don't think Liam will let us go on any missions" she sounded defeated. That thought crossed my mind too, however, missions were the last thing on my mind at the moment.

Remembering the last thing she said before leaving last night, I grabbed my phone and typed 'what did you mean by visiting me if he lets you? Who?'

She read it, her eyebrows high on her forehead. She met my eyes while clearing her throat "since we brought you back Alex was by your bed all night and day. He wouldn't leave your side."

My eyes widened, shock evident on my face. She giggled watching my reaction "I told you, you caught his eye"

For the rest of the day, I stayed in bed. Olivia was by my side all day and I was grateful for her company. Later that day my voice came back and I began feeling stronger. The drug wore off and I felt my ribs reattaching again.

Night came and I itched to leave the room. I was sick of those four walls that surrounded me. No longer having pain anywhere in my body, I decided I would go for dinner in the cafeteria. Olivia suggested she would bring me dinner in the bed but I had none of it. With a sigh of defeat, she insisted she would go with me. I felt warmth spreading in my chest at the thought of her being concerned about my well being. In fact, all of them seemed to be concerned about my well being.

After getting dressed in more appropriate clothing which consisted of leggings and a long oversized sweater we finally left the room. Once we got our food we headed towards our table. All three slayers sat there deep in conversation while they ate their dinner. Their heads snapped to us once we approached the table. Three pairs of emerald eyes went wide when they saw me out of the bed

"You should be in bed" Liam eyes me accusingly, his voice matched to his glare.

"Yep, that's what I told her," Olivia gave me a side-eye.

I rolled my eyes at both of them "I feel fine. I couldn't stay in that room any longer. I was going mad"

Sitting down next to Olivia I sat right across Alex. His bottomless orbs bored into mine with so much intensity I felt like he could see my soul. Olivia's words flashed in my mind.

He didn't leave your side.

Heat rushed to my cheeks immediately upon imagining Alex sitting by my bed watching me. Oh God... I hope he didn't see anything embarrassing.

His eyes roamed over my face and when he noticed my flushing cheeks, the corner of his lips lifted slightly into a half-smile. I grabbed my glass of water and took a big sip trying to hide the flush and also extinguish the heat in my body from his intense stare. He held my gaze for a few seconds longer before I heard Olivia's voice.

"Do you have any idea who could be our traitor?" Olivia's attention was to Alex. He snapped his eyes to her.

"Only a few people knew about the mission. I will keep a close watch on them" said Alex with his eyes on Olivia.

"How did the person know where we were," I eyed the slayers sitting around the table, meeting each of their gazes.

"It's possible someone could hear Olivia through the comm when she gave your position, or the vampires just followed you around waiting for the right moment." Liam's voice filled my ears.

After he said it my eyes roamed over the cafeteria, watching every slayer in the big room. Everyone minded their business, everyone seemed at ease. Letting out a breath I shook my head and began eating my burger. It's not like I would be able to tell who was the traitor from just looking at them.

My mind swirled with thoughts. We would have to set up a trap. I also needed to go after my brother not wanting to wait until he decided to attack. And now that there was a traitor he could attack any time and we wouldn't see it coming. This wasn't a risk I was willing to take.

***

As I lay in my bed darkness engulfed me. The only source of light was the moon shining through gaps in the light curtain. I could hear my breathing and the light thumping of my heart in the silence. It was very late, well past midnight.

I've been lying in the bed for hours trying to sleep. But the slight paranoia of knowing that there was a traitor among us and fear of my brother attacking and killing the slayers kept me awake. I specifically feared for Alex and Olivia.

Olivia showed me respect and kindness. She became my friend and I felt like I could trust her. She saved my life when we got attacked, she could have run but decided to stay and call for help. If that didn't show loyalty, I didn't know what would.

I had feelings for Alex and found him attractive ever since I first met him. I would never forget the look, his intense eyes when he first saw me in the wrecked car. The fact that he stayed by my bed the whole time I was out after the attack made my feelings deeper. A deep frustrated breath left my lips. We could never be together. After helping them with the vampires I would have to leave.

After another half an hour of tossing and turning, I gave up and checked my phone. It was 1:30 am. Deciding I needed to burn some of my energy, a bit of training would certainly help with that.

Getting off the bed I headed towards my dresser. I put on workout leggings with a sports bra and a loose t-shirt. A high ponytail adorned my head and headed out the door.

Entering the gym a flicked on the lights. It blinked a few times until solid light illuminated the large gym. A smile found itself on my lips, loving the gym was empty. Needing to warm up I went for the treadmill first walking then running. After about ten minutes I walked towards the boxing bag.

Facing the boxing bag I began to punch. The more punches I landed angrier I got. My punches got harder using more of my strength as I imagined Henry's face instead of the boxing bag. I ignored the pain I started to feel on my knuckles. I didn't bother to put on boxing gloves. After minutes of boxing and relieving my anger, the noise of movement and footsteps behind me entered my sensitive ears.

Immediately, my head snapped towards the intruder. Alex stood there leaning against the wall not far from me. His arms were folded across his broad chest and his emerald green eyes bored into mine, straight into my soul.

"What are you doing here" I found myself asking, standing next to the boxing bag. The realisation of me and him were the only people in the gym left me nervous. I shifted my weight from one side to another and began to fidget with my fingers.

"I could ask you the same thing. It's late, shouldn't you be sleeping" He raised an eyebrow at me as he walked closer.

"I tried to sleep, but I guess I need to burn off some energy" I watched as his every step brought him closer to me. His intense eyes never left mine.

"Ya I am the same", he smiled warmly at me showing his pearly white teeth. I could feel myself melting.

I cleared my throat after realising I was staring and felt heat rushing to my cheeks. I quickly turned away and was about to continue when I heard him behind me "wanna spar?"

I quickly composed myself and thought about it for a second before I turned to face him and nodded. He smiled again and walked over to the area for sparring.

"Don't hold back" he said, his eyes never leaving me.

"Ok, just don't forget you asked for it," I eyed him with the same intensity as he eyed me.

He chuckled at my statement. We began circling each other, my eyes never left his body. I waited for him to land the first blow but as it turned out he waited for me. "Ladies first,"

Not waiting for any second longer, I blew a few punches but he dodged or blocked them. He landed a few missing my face only by a few centimetres.

"That's all you can do?" I taunted him. He smirked. From his movement, I noticed he was about to blow a punch. I readied myself and was about to block it but before did a pain radiated from my ribs. He punched me in my ribs and then he squatted, spun and kicked into my legs. I fell to the floor panting. He was holding back, I could tell because the pain was barely there.

He held out his hand and I took it. Once on my feet, we circled each other again a few times and then I went in, punched him but he blocked it with his forearm, with this distraction I got a hold around his neck and began kicking him into his abdomen with my knee.

A few kicks reached his stomach before he somehow got a hold of my legs, holding me behind my thighs. He lifted me off the floor. Getting caught by surprise, I let go of his neck. He lost his balance and we both fell to the ground, me landing on the bottom and he on top of me.

He was leaning on his elbows both of us frozen at our proximity, gazing into each other's eyes. I was locked, drowning in his emerald depths and couldn't look away. His breath gently fanned over my skin while his heat radiated from his body into mine. The faint scent of nutmeg, orange and musk filled my nose. It was a heavenly smell, something I could smell every day.

Both of our heavy breaths mixed together from the fight. His eyes kept staring into mine and then they moved down and stopped at my lips. Without even realising I licked my lips, suddenly feeling dry like Sahara. His eyes flicked back to mine and I could swear his pupils dilated.

Suddenly, his face moved towards me fast and his lips crashed with mine. The feeling of his soft lips took me by surprise and I froze. Too mesmerised by his eyes, I missed the movement of his face. He pulled away, his eyes flicked between mine with concern and his eyebrows creased. Still in shock, I stared at him with my wide eyes.

What am I doing? This is what I dreamed about.

"Shit, sorry I thought-" he began to pull away. The concern along with a slight disappointment flashed in his emerald depths.

I quickly laced my hands around his neck after I snapped myself out of the shock before I ruined everything. I pulled him down towards me, crashing my lips to him. I loved the feeling of his soft hot lips against mine. He licked the seam of my lips demanding entry for his tongue to enter. I opened them eagerly and our tongues crashed, dancing and tasting each other. His passion grew by the second and I returned with the same potency.

His hand began to slide under the loose t-shirt I wore, his hot touch left electric current in its wake and shot straight to my lower belly. His hand slowly moved upwards towards my breasts. I didn't stop him, wanting him to touch me everywhere. My panties got soaked from his touch and passionate kiss, my clit yearned for his attention.

Suddenly, he pulled away his hand letting go of my skin and I fought the urge to groan. He looked me in the eyes, his emerald green depths were filled with lust. And I am sure mine was too. He smiled, his eyes took in every inch of my face as if remembering and I did the same. "As much as I want it" he let out a sigh, looked around and added "not here"

My eyes tore from his and I scanned the big room, suddenly remembering being in the gym. My gaze moved to his "Ya, good call" I muttered. I expected him to move or to stand up or something but he stayed there, still lying on top of me watching every detail of my face.

"You don't have an idea how long I've wanted to do this" his voice was deep and husky.

"Since when" I found myself asking, locked in his beautiful eyes.

"Since...the crash, since I first saw you" I felt his fingers gently caressing my cheek.

Suddenly a noise filled my ears, faint talking and footsteps. My eyes shot to the entrance but no one came through. When I looked back at Alex he was looking into the doors too. Then he stood up and held out his hand for me to grab it "let's go"
