Chapter 10 [Part 2]
I woke up the next morning at home and could only think about my secret.
I thought I’d come home to see Li but on the way there I saw something shocking. I saw my mate, she was in London Town shopping. She was beautiful, just perfect and I wanted to make her mine. I wanted to put my hands through her long black hair, gaze into those shiny light brown eyes, kiss those tiny pink lips and feel that amazing body on mine.
I was about to go up to her but then a guy walked up to her and put his arms around her waist and kissed her lips, what the hell? Why is he kissing her she’s my mate, not his?
Then the guy turned around and I saw his face, it was Li. I can’t believe this my brother has a thing going on with my mate. How did this happen? How could she do this to me, she has to know that Li isn’t her mate.
I have to do something but what? I think I know. I have to go and see the Blood Witch.
That’s what I did, I gave my mate one last look. She’s so beautiful and she’ll be mine soon, she won’t know what’s hit her.
I made my way to the Blood Witch’s house. I knocked and waited. After a minute, a young looking woman with ash white hair and eyes opened the door.
“Yes,” the woman spoke.
“Are you the Blood Witch,” I asked.
“Yes I’m the Blood Witch, what do you want? Don’t tell me it’s about your mate,” the Blood Witch asked with a knowing look.
“Actually it is, I found her,” I said.
“You found your mate, isn’t that a good thing?”
“Then what’s the problem?”
“She’s with my brother,”
“What? Wait a minute you’re one of the James brothers aren’t you?”
“Yes how do you know?” I asked. I wasn’t surprised she knew if she is the Blood Witch.
“I remember giving a young hybrid female two mates who were brothers,” the Blood Witch replied.
“Why did you give her two mates?”
“Because she’s had a tough life, I think she deserves all the love she can get and what better way to give her all that love than two brothers,”
“What happened to her?” I asked. What has my mate been through?
“That’s something you’ll have to wait for your mate to tell you,”
“I bet Li knows,”
“Is Li your brother? That means you’re Jaime right?”
“Right,” I said paused. “So will you help me?”
“Yes but how?”
“I want my mate to think we’re not mates,” I decided. It will be better that way. She’s with Li, she won’t want me.
“I can do that. Your mate won’t feel your bond but you will, how does that sound?”
“That’s what I want,”
“As you wish,” the Blood Witch said and closed her eyes. She began chanting in a language I couldn’t understand.
After a minute of chanting, she opened her eyes to tell me
“It is done, your mate won’t feel your bond unless you want her to,”
“Ok thankyou,” I turned to leave but stopped when the Blood Witch spoke.
“I know your future. You and your mate will be together in the end so you didn’t need me to do that,”
“I did because I’ll be living with them soon and I don’t want my mate to know we’re mates just yet,”
“I understand,” I said as I walked away thinking about what the Blood Witch had just said. The words ‘you and your mate will be together in the end’ kept on repeating in my head. If those words are true then I will wait for it to happen, my mate is worth the wait.
End of flashback
I know now that was the right thing to do because Sage is happy with Li. That’s all I want for her, to be happy.
I think Sage and Li know something because last night they came in my room when they thought I was asleep but I wasn’t. I was actually wide awake because I couldn’t sleep with Sage being my mate and her not knowing. I need her but she can never know that we are mates.
Sage touched my arm, I felt sparks immediately. I was so happy to finally feel my mate’s touch for the first time but was disappointed when she stopped and they both went back to their room. They went on to do something I don’t want to describe but it really hurt me.
They must know that I’m Sage’s mate because why else would Sage touch my arm. Also why would they do something after knowing that it hurts me so much?
It’s like they don’t care. If Sage knew I was her mate, would she accept me? I think not. Maybe I should have told the Blood Witch to break our bond, I mean it wouldn’t hurt Sage as she wouldn’t feel it because she’s so in love with Li. It would only hurt me, I would probably die from it and Sage wouldn’t even care.
Maybe I should get out of the house for a bit to think things through. Maybe I should go to the pack house to my office, which is part of my biggest secret that no one knows about, not even Li, my only family.
I got out of bed and took a shower then got dressed into black jeans. I headed downstairs. Li and Sage were already there eating breakfast. I headed straight for the front door.
“Jaime don’t you want to have breakfast with us?” Li asked when he noticed me.
“No thanks. I gotta go somewhere but I’ll get something to eat on my way,” I replied.
“What about lunch, would you like us to save you some,”
“Um no thanks. I’ll be out all day. I’ll be back late so don’t wait up for me,” I said then walked out.
It was late when I got back. Li and Sage didn’t wait for me like I asked but they did leave me dinner with a note saying
′There’s dinner in the oven for you, heat for 2 minutes’
I looked in the oven, there was shepherd’s pie and chips inside. I took the food out, put the oven on and waited for it to warm up, then put the food in for 2 minutes.
I took the food out, got a fork and ate. When I was finished I cleared up and went to bed.
From that day on, I went out when I woke up early and came back late at night to avoid Sage and Li but they always left food for me. It’s better this way so no one but me will get hurt.
