MIKHAIL

‘That guy is getting in my nerves!’ My wolf protested. I know and i hate it! If it weren’t for gabreelle i would’ve ripped that lycan to shreds!

“What happened?” Asked elder michael.

“She was walking really wobbly up the stairs and when she got to the top of the staircase she fainted and fell down.” Sandy explained.

Something is wrong and i’m going to find out.

Since she has lost a lot of blood and we were the same blood type which is A i donated a bag of mine for her. I couldn’t eat, i was with Gabreelle the whole day just keeping an eye on her i wasn’t really hungry anyway. Sandy, kade and the lycan were in charge of running around the perimeter to check if there are any clues and if there are trespassers.

Gabby was in the hands of the elders and alpha michael, they were busy on their own problems. The night came and i was still in Gabreelle’s room, i vowed to myself after what happened with her today that i won’t eat until she wakes up.

“You know she’s going to be mad at you when she wakes up.” Alpha christopher said while he enters the room and sits down on the unoccupied sofa chair.

“Ohh i know she will.” I agreed. I’m useless.

“Not because of what you’re thinking.” He said.

I couldn’t think of anything to say because i know that he’s just saying all of this to bring my mood up.

“Is gabby alright? I can take care of him.” I said.

“He’s doing great just sleeping and eating all day. Don’t worry about him, he’s in great hands.” Alpha said.

I let out a breath, ” thank you so much.”

“I’ve known Bree ever since she was a month old.” He said smiling and looking at gabreelle. “I know how she thinks and she wouldn’t want to see what state you’re in now.”

“She wouldn’t want you to starve yourself to death and you also gave your blood to her that’s not healthy.” He followed up.

“It’s my fault.” I said.

“Maybe, maybe not entirely. You’re not perfect, reed.” He said. “No one is perfect. Remember that.” He stood up and went out the room.

Hours passed by since alpha christopher has exited the room, she hasn’t woken up yet. She could breathe fine since there’s an oxygen tank that kade brought up to her room and we’re using it for her.

I glanced at the clock and it was now 4 o’clock in the morning. I deserve to be punished, i am a disgrace to all the guardians out there. How am i called a fucking guardian if i couldn’t even guard her!

“I could feel your stress.” A groggy voice said.

I opened the lights and saw a squinting gabreelle, “jeesh! Could you close the lights?!”

“You’re a vampire now?” I joked and instantly scold myself. How could i joke when i was the one who put her in this mess.

She laughed, “maybe.”

She looked at me, “i couldn’t remember anything after drinking water.”

“You fell down the stairs.” I said. “It’s my fault.”

“Did you push me?” She asked.

“No! How could i do such a thing?!” I defended.

“Well, why is it your fault?” She asked as she sat up. “Ow, my head hurts.” She complained a bit. As i went to try and help her “it’s manageable.” She said as she smiled at me.

“I should’ve been by your side.” I said.

She chuckled, “it’s okay, i could feel your stress though.”

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“I could feel your stress and that you’re worried that’s why i woke up.” She said as she looked at me. “And you’re tired.” She looked at my arm and saw the bandaid and cotton, and looked at hers.

“You-”

“It’s not a big deal.” I said cutting her off.

“Have you even eaten?” She asked. I couldn’t answer.

“Yes i did.” I lied.

“Liar! I could feel you lying.” She said.

What in the world is happening?

“Help me up.” She said. I helped her up, “how’s gabby?”

I scratched the back of my head, ” err.”

“Mikhail i will know when you lie.” She said.

“He’s with the elders and he’s fine. I haven’t seen him after the accident, i was watching over you.” I said.

“I’m sorry, i’m a wreck this day.”

“Help me to the kitchen.” She said. I did as she asked, as we got to the kitchen she opened the refrigerator door and scanned the whole fridge.

She reached for the garlic,different cheeses and pasta. “You’re hungry,huh.” I said.

She just smirked and carried on with cooking. ” how long was i knocked out?” She asked casually.

“12 hours or more… I think.” I answered.

“I thought it was just a minute.” She answered back.

“Well you’re in for a treat ’cause it wasn’t a minute.” I said and looked at her. She was putting the cooked pasta and sauce in A microwaveable container and put it in and set the time.

“Gabreelle i have a question.” I asked.

“What is it?” She asks.

“Do you remember anything before passing out?” I asked again.

“Just that i was exhausted after training.” She answered.

I got so lost in my thoughts that I wasn’t aware that Gabreelle was done cooking and was just looking at me, “why are you not eating?”

A smile was plastered on her face, “well, this is for you.”

Me? “Me? Why? I’m fine.”

“You didn’t eat just so you could watch over me.” She said while she scratched the back of her neck. “It’s a simple thank you.”

“Thank you, but you must be exhausted and starving you should eat this.” I said.

“Nah, i’m good.” She said while smiling.

“Thank you,gabreelle.” I said to her while i took my first bite. It was delicious, i was well aware that she was a really good cook . I lived for a few weeks with their pack, but right now it’s different. She’s not the omega anymore, she’s not in her old pack anymore but she cooked for me just so she could say a simple thank you.

I’m such a lucky son of a bitch.

“So, what happened while i was knocked out?”

“The usual, alex is losing his mind-.” I tried to nag but she cut me off.

“He is so possessive.” She said with a frown.

“Mates are supposed to be possessive,gabreelle.” I reasoned with her.

“So, now you’re taking his side but when we were training the three of you are having a pissy contest on who’s stronger?” She said.

She remembered that?

“Well, what mate isn’t possessive of what’s theirs? ” especially if it’s you i thought.

“What?” She said.

“Huh?” I asked.

“What does that mean?” She said.

“What does what mean?”

“Especially if it’s me.” She said.

Ohh shit i thought out loud.

“Well-” i started and scratched the back of my head. “You’re very kind,beautiful,you’re feisty,you’re great with kids.”

“That means a lot to me.” She said smiling at the ground blushing. “You should eat, i’ll just check up on gabby. ” she said as she walked up to the doorframe leading to the stairs but she stopped and looked at me. “And reed.”

“What?”

“Stay with me for the night,please?”

How the fuck could i say no?! She’s so irresistible! “I will.” I said nonchalantly and she smiled at me and went up the stairs.

You lucky son of a bitch my wolf said proudly.
