Chapter 16 [Part 1]
As soon as my mate left my heart hurt, it felt so empty. It needs my mate. I have to get her back right now, I miss her so much it’s only been 1 hour. I know I told Sage that if she wasn’t back in my bed by tonight then I’ll look for her. I can’t wait until then. I have to get her back right now.
She is most likely at her friend’s house. So I drive over there and banged on the front door. All I hear is silence. I guess no one’s home, I’ll wait I know she’ll come, she feels safe here because her best friend is here.
Wait what was that noise? Was that movement? Yes it was, my mate is definitely here, I can feel it. I banged on the door again. I heard movement again and the door was finally opened by Jenny.
“Where is she?” I demanded.
“Where’s who?” Jenny asked, her playing dumb infuriates me.
“Don’t act stupid, where’s Sage? I know she’s here,” I said with my anger rising.
“She’s not here, why would she be here?” Jenny asked in fake confusion.
“She ran away,”
Jenny didn’t look surprised and tried to hide it.
“If she’s not here the why don’t you look surprised?” I asked.
“I am surprised. You’re her mate, why would she run away from you? She wouldn’t do that, why-” Jenny began to say.
“Enough, tell me where she is,” I cut in.
“I don’t know where she is,” Jenny denied.
“Don’t lie, I know she’s here,”
“She’s not,” Jenny argued and by then I was fuming. I want my mate, I want my mate now. I lifted Jenny off her feet with my vampire abilities, I want her to feel pain for lying to me. She began choking as if someone was strangling her.
“Tell me where Sage is now!” I yelled.
Jenny couldn’t move or answer. I let her go.
“Tell me,” I demanded.
Jenny pointed towards the next room. I ran to the door and flung it open and on the other side there she was, my beautiful mate. I ran to her and held her in my arms.
“You’re coming home with me right now,” I didn’t give my mate a choice.
“No way,” Sage refused said and tried to get out of my arms.
“Oh no you don’t, you’re not getting away this time. I will take you home,” I assured Sage.
“In your dreams,” Sage said and stepped away from me but I only moved closer to her, clearly not liking the distance between us.
“What did you say?” I demanded.
“You heard me,” Sage replied.
“No not in my dreams. it will be in reality. I promise you,” I said confidently but then Sage did something I never wanted for her to do, she disappeared into thin air. What? Where did she go? Where is she?
“You were saying?” I heard my Sage’s voice ask from behind me but when I looked back I saw nothing. Is she invisible? How does she know how to do that?
“That’s something you’ll never know,” Sage replied. Wait....... Did I just say that out loud or did she just read my mind?
“Yeah,” Sage laughed after answering my unspoken questions.
“You can read my mind?” I asked in complete surprise.
“Of course I can,”
“Since you marked me,”
“Why didn’t you tell me?” I asked but Sage didn’t answer.
“Lets go home right now, I want you to hear all my thoughts,” I said and grabbed Sage’s wrist but she pulled it away.
“No I’m not going anywhere with you. I’m staying right here,” Sage said firmly but I wasn’t having any of it. I tried my best to get her to come back home with me but she refused.
After 30 minutes of trying, Sage was pissed. She used her vampire abilities to push me gently out the door and slammed it shut. I see she still needs space. I’ll come back soon to get her and she won’t refuse. I’ll make sure of it.
