Chapter 14 [Part 1]
I woke up freezing, I looked around and yet again my mate was nowhere to be seen. I looked all over the bed for her but didn’t see her.
Then I felt something soft move on my stomach. I took a look and there she was, my beautiful mate in her wolf form, fast asleep. I sighed in relief. I put my arms around her and held her close. Sage really is a beautiful wolf. Sage stirred, looked at me and howled quietly.
“Morning,” I said, Sage howled cutely in reply. Then she wriggled and tried getting out of my arms.
“Oh no you don’t, you’re not going anywhere, you’re mine,” I told her but she struggled, this time I let go and she ran out the door. Damn it! Why didn’t I close the bloody door last night? It won’t happen again. I ran after her. Damn! She’s fast.
I tried to catch her with no luck. She ran around the house with me behind her, she even jumped over things.
“Sage stop, why are you running from me?” I asked but Sage continued.
After an hour of running, she slowed down. I picked her up and took her to our bed, she was panting.
“That’s what happens for running wild my little mate,” I cooed. Sage glared at me and when she stopped panting she changed back to her vampire form.
“Why did you run?” I asked.
“I’m a wolf, wolf’s run,” Sage replied.
“So you weren’t running from me?”
“Of course not,”
“Good,” I sighed in relief.
We got dressed and ready to head downstairs in inhumane speed. Then Sage stopped me.
“Li?” she asked.
“Yes beautiful,” I replied as I turned to face her.
“When will I have my Vampire abilities?” Sage asked curiously.
“You already have them,” I stated.
“Since when?” Sage asked with confused eyes.
“Since I marked you as mine,”
“So I've had them all this time? Why didn’t you tell me and how come I didn’t realise?” Sage demanded.
“I’m sorry, I thought you knew,” I apologised and after a small silence asked
“So what would you like to do on your day off work?”
“I’d like to see Jenny because I haven’t seen her since we got married,” Sage replied.
“There’s plenty of time for that but right now I’m having breakfast with my gorgeous little mate,” I said and with that I put my mouth on Sage’s for a minute then I led her to the kitchen.
After an interesting breakfast where we just couldn’t take our hands off each other, we went to the couch and made out.
After what seemed like hours, we pulled apart and I drove my mate to Jenny’s house.
Sage gave me a soft kiss on my lips before going up to Jenny’s front door and I headed home.
Jenny and I spent an hour catching up before we headed into town for some shopping. We ended up in a clothes store. We separated to look for clothes.
After a few minutes, I heard someone call my name. I turned in the direction of the voice. It was Jeff who was Jenny’s neighbour, my old neighbour. He had blonde hair and black eyes, he was 22 years old, he’s cute but I don’t like him like that, I only have eyes for Li. Jeff has had a crush on me ever since we met. He asked me out a while before I met Li but I declined.
“Hi,” I greeted Jeff once he had walked up to me.
“Hi Sage, is everything ok? I haven’t seen you in while?” Jeff asked with concern.
“Yeah I’m fine,” I replied with a fake smile.
“Then why haven’t I seen you?” Jeff demanded.
“I got married and moved,” I explained with a smile.
“What? No! To who?” Jeff asked. I saw the shock and hurt in his eyes.
“His name is Lincoln,” I said.
“Lincoln who?” Jeff asked as if he was hearing a familiar name.
“What? You married Lincoln James but why?”
“Because I love him,”
“Why? He doesn’t love you,”
“Yes he does,” I disagreed.
“No he doesn’t, I used to know him. He doesn’t love you, he can’t as he just doesn’t know how,” Jeff told me.
“He does love me,” I insisted.
“No he doesn’t want you. Trust me, I know. He’s just using you,”
“No he’s my husband,”
“Look husband or not, I think you should leave him before something bad happens,” Jeff warned.
“Like what?” I asked.
“It’s best if you don’t stay with him to find out,”
“But-” I began to say.
“Do it before it’s too late,” Jeff interrupted. I was confused but I agreed with him.
“Good. This will be good for you in the long run, you’ll see,” Jeff assured me.
I don’t know what I will do now but something is telling me to confront my husband. ‘He doesn’t want you’, the words echoed through my head over and over. It was killing me, I had to find out the truth.
