Chapter 27 [Part 1]
1 month later
I’ve waited for this day for three years. Today I’m going home. I can’t wait to see Li as it’s been so long and I’ve missed him so much. I also get to meet his mate. I miss my mate Lily. I didn’t even get to know her, my Dad killed her the day I met her. She was so beautiful, she had long blonde hair and she was curvy but I didn’t mind because she was mine. She was perfectly made for me.
I used to think about her all the time but this past month I haven’t thought about her at all. I’m glad Li has his mate because it would be terrible if our Dad found her too. Li is completely smitten with her whenever we talk through webcam or on the phone, all he talks about is his mate. I’m happy for him and can’t wait to meet her, she sounds nice.
Li said he would pick me up but I insisted on getting a cab as it was only a few hours away. Li thinks I’m coming home tomorrow but I decided to surprise him today. I called a cab and it was on it’s way. I was waiting outside the flat I’d been staying at with my bags.
After 15 minutes, the cab arrived and I got in with my bags in the boot.
3 hours later, the cab pulled outside my home. I paid the cab driver and he helped me take my bags out the boot. I grabbed my bags and walked to the front door before dropping the bags to my feet. I rang the doorbell and waited.
After a few seconds, I came face to face with the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. She had long black hair and light brown eyes with the perfect little body, she was wearing maroon jeans with a black top and maroon high heels. I completely forgot about Lily. The girl in front of me was all I could think about. She seemed totally unaware of me checking her out. This girl is amazing! I have to have her. I was about to say something but she spoke.
“Can I help you?” she asked in a low sexy voice. Before I could reply, I heard movement behind her. She looked back and the door opened wider. There he was, Li.
“Li?” I asked. Li looked at me and smiled.
“Jaime you’re home,” Li smiled and rushed up to me to pull me into a hug.
“Jaime what are you doing here? I thought you were coming tomorrow?” Li asked.
“I know but I decided to come a day early and surprise you,” I replied.
“I’m glad, I missed you little brother,” Li told me.
“I missed you too,” I said as I gave Li another hug and then pulled away.
Li put his arm around the girl. “Jaime this is Sage, my beautiful wife,” Li introduced the beauty proudly and my heart sank.
What? She is his wife? No! How will I get her now?
“Sage this is my brother Jaime,” Li told Sage.
Sage looked at me and said
“Hi,” she held out her hand and I took it, I was shocked to feel tingles, she must have felt them too because her eyes widened.
“Hi it’s nice to meet you, Li’s told me so much about you. You’re all he talks about,” I replied which made Sage look at Li.
“You talked about me?” Sage asked which made Li blush.
“Yes,” Li replied.
“Aww Li you’re blushing,” I laughed and that made Li blush harder and hide his face in Sage’s neck. I didn’t like that, I didn’t like that at all, them being so close, I think I love her.
I don’t know what is happening. I shouldn’t be having these feelings for Sage when she’s Li’s mate not mine but then why did I feel tingles when we shook hands? I’m confused. Maybe it’s because I haven’t eaten for hours.
“So what’s for dinner? I’m starving,” I asked and finally got their attention.
“What would you like?” Sage asked.
“I don’t mind, I’ll eat anything,”
“Ok I’ll start on dinner,” Sage said then headed towards the kitchen. Wow! She’s going to cook for me, I know the food’s going to be great. Li followed her into the kitchen and came out 2 minutes later with drinks. I took one and had a sip.
“So?” Li said casually.
“So what?” I asked.
’So what do you think of my mate?”
“She’s perfect for you,” I lied. She’s only perfect for me.
“You think so?”
“Yes. I’m glad one of us can have their mate and be happy,” I said sadly.
“Thanks. I know it’s not easy for you after what happened,”
“It’s ok,” I shrugged. “Maybe I’ll find a nice human girl that will make me happy,” I don’t see that happening now that I’ve met Sage.
“I hope so, you deserve to be happy,”
1 hour later, Sage started bringing the food to the table. The three of us took a seat at the table and ate. The food was good. It was a bit of everything, a few sweet and savoury dishes with a few deserts, it was unbelievable, Li is a lucky man.
After dinner, it was late and I headed to my room to bed while thinking of the beautiful girl I had just met and couldn’t have.
