Chapter 7 [Part 2]
I woke up panting. That was the worst thing to have ever happened. Sage was taken away from me for 2 years and then when I found her again, I killed Jaime which ended up killing Sage too. It was all because of me, why did I kill him? I should have known it would kill Sage too because Jaime was her mate too and mates can’t live without each other.
I’ve lost everything, what am I supposed to do now? Maybe I could go to the blood witch and ask her to make me human so I can kill myself to be with Sage. I bet Jaime is with her now. This is so unfair, I killed him so I could have Sage but that only helped him to have her.
I sat at the edge of the bed and was about to stand but a soft hand grabbed my wrist gently from behind me and I could feel sparks there. This can’t be right, I only feel sparks when Sage used to touch me but that can’t be her because she’s dead.
“Where do you think you’re going?” the person said, it sounded just like Sage, but it couldn’t be her could it?
I turned around and came face to face with Sage. I couldn’t believe it. She’s actually here, she’s alive.
“Sage you’re not dead,” I said with tears in my eyes. I put my arms around my mate and snuggled into her.
“Of course I’m not dead, I’m right here,” Sage confirmed and looked a little confused.
“This isn’t possible,” I shook my head. “You died. I saw you. I killed Jaime and you died too, right in front of my eyes,”
“Li I don’t understand. How could I be dead and who’s Jaime?” Sage asked as she looked more confused than ever.
“You don’t know who Jaime is? But I told you everything didn’t I?” I asked and started to become confused myself. What the hell is going on?
“Told me everything about what?” Sage asked. She still had no clue what I was talking about and I was starting to question if I had imagined it all.
“My parents death,” I said
“You told me that you killed them but then I tried to leave because I didn’t see how we could be together. Then you took my memory away and I didn’t leave. After a while, I realised something wasn’t right so I confronted you and you gave me my memory back. Since then I’ve been having a feeling you’re still hiding something from me, I’m right aren’t I?” Sage asked with a knowing look.
“Yes,” I can’t believe this. Everything I thought happened didn’t actually happen. I dreamt the whole thing.
“Tell me everything,” Sage demanded.
“I lied about my parents death, I’ll tell you now what really happened,” I said as I pulled Sage onto my lap before telling her everything. “There were 4 of us. Me, my parents and my younger brother Jaime. We were happy until Jaime found his soul mate and brought her home. Dad ended up killing her and Mum was scared so she tried to run but Dad accidentally killed her too. After Mum’s funeral things were really bad, Dad started drinking and beat me and Jaime. We just took it, we were grieving over mum.
Then after some time, Dad came home from work one day looking happy. He told me he knew who my soul mate was, he said he would kill her too because if him and Jaime couldn’t have their soul mates, then I couldn’t have mine either,” I paused. “That made Jaime angry and he lunged at Dad, I didn’t want him hurt so I stepped in. It all happened so fast and Dad was dead,” I finished and hugged Sage who hugged me back.
“Why didn’t you tell me?” Sage asked.
“I wanted to but I just couldn’t, I’m sorry” I apologised.
“It’s ok,” Sage assured me. “So.... You have a brother?”
“Yeah he’s at university and graduates in a few months so you’ll get to meet him,” I replied with a smile. I haven’t seen much of Jaime since he left for university. I can’t wait to see him.
“I look forward to that but what happened in your dream?” Sage asked curiously.
“That wasn’t a dream, it was a nightmare,” I realised.
“Tell me about it,”
“I saw Jaime finish university and come to live with us. We found out he was your other mate and then he took you away from me. I didn’t see you for two years. After 2 years, I found you two and you were in the middle of getting married. I killed him and it killed you too, then I woke up,”
“It’s ok, it was only a nightmare but what if it’s true that Jaime is my other mate? What will we do?” Sage asked worriedly.
“I have no idea but we’ll figure it out together,” I told her, hopefully Jaime won’t be Sage’s other mate but if he is then I will do everything I can to prevent that nightmare from coming true. I will not watch Sage die in front of me. I will not lose her.
