Chapter 7 [Part 1]
In the morning I woke up with Li sleeping next to me. Aww! He looks adorable. I really want to pinch his cheeks but I won’t. Then my eyes trailed down to his eight pack. I would really like to have a feel and experience those sparks again but I won’t.
We’re not touching so I guess he’s keeping his word and I’m glad. I hope it’s not like last night, every night. I’m gonna have to let him sleep next to me and hope he keeps a distance between us until we are married.
I looked at the clock Damn! It’s only 8am. I never wake this early but I guess now that I’ve found my mate, I’ll have to. What shall I do now? I don’t want to get out of bed just yet because it’s so cosy but I need to pee. I slowly got out of the bed not wanting to wake Li and went in the bathroom before locking the door. While I was drying my hands with a towel I heard movement. Li must be awake.
“Mate?” I heard more movement which was getting louder and louder. Li was panicking.
“Where are you?” Li asked in panic.
“I’m in the bathroom, don’t worry. I’m just coming out,” I said as I put the towel away to unlock the door. Li pulled it open and hugged me.
“Sage you scared me. When I woke up and you weren’t next to me, I thought you left me,” Li admitted before pulling away.
“Why would I do that when we’re getting married? And if I did, you would find me and bring me back,”
“True but don’t do that again. Don’t go anywhere without telling me ok?” Li said firmly.
“But I needed to pee desperately and you were sleeping,” I whined.
“Next time wake me,” Li said.
“What if you don’t wake up?” I asked.
“I’ll always wake for you beautiful. Don’t hesitate, just do whatever it takes to wake me,” Li told me.
“Whatever it takes?” I raised an eyebrow.
“Whatever it takes but I know what will wake me instantly,” Li said with a smirk.
“Really, what is that?”
“A kiss from my sexy mate,” Li replied, I’d love to kiss him but won’t.
“When we’re married,” I said.
“Can’t wait,” Li smirked again.
I turned to go out the room. Li started to panic again which made me want to put my arms around him to calm him but I didn’t.
“Where are you going?” Li asked.
“Don’t worry, I’m just getting my suitcase. It’s downstairs. I was too tired to bring it up last night,” I assured my anxious looking fiancé.
“No,” Li said, what? He’s not going to let me go downstairs?
“What do you mean no?”
“I mean no I’ll get it, I’ll be quicker,” Li said and with that he sped off and was back in two seconds with my suitcase, wow!
“Will I be able to do that?” I asked in awe.
“Yeah once you are a Vampire,” Li told me.
“Cool,” I said, I can’t wait. I’ll be able to run from Li yet he’ll be much faster and will catch me but I don’t mind.
I opened my suitcase and took out what I needed which was makeup, a tooth brush and clothes. I put the makeup on the bed.
“Li I’m going to get dressed in the bathroom,” I announced.
“Why not here?” Li asked.
“Because you’ll see,”
“So I don’t want you to see,”
“Ok go but I will see soon,”
“No you won’t,” I argued.
“Yes I will,” Li argued back.
“Not if I can help it,” I said and with that I went in the bathroom.
I came out later dressed in blue jeans and a black top.
“You look so cute,” Li said and I blushed.
“Aww! You’re blushing,” Li cooed as I tried to hide my face.
“Sage please don’t hide from me, it hurts,” Li said. I ignored him to put on the black heels to match my outfit.
“It’s good you’re wearing heels, you’re so short but in a good way,” Li made me blush again.
I took out a mirror, combed my hair and started applying my makeup. First a little concealer and foundation, then I put a thin line of on Kohl around my eyes and finished off with mascara. While I did that Li had a shower, changed in to a light blue shirt and black jeans with black trainers.
“You look really nice,” I told Li and he blushed, aww!
“Not as nice as you,” Li made me blush too.
“Come, let’s have breakfast,” Li took my hand and led me to the kitchen. This time, Li did the cooking and I just watched his amazing body, it was perfect and I so badly wanted to feel it but I didn’t, yet.
Li put a huge plate full of pancakes topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup in front of me. He then got 2 forks, he handed me one. It looks like he wants us to share. I took a deep breath and dug in, so did Li and they were the best pancakes I ever tasted.
“This is amazing, thank you,” I said and Li’s mouth was full so he just nodded at me.
When we finished eating, I said I would clean up since Li cooked but he wouldn’t let me and cleaned up himself as I watched him.
When Li was finished he looked at me.
“Sage I have some news,” Li announced.
“Tell me,” I urged and patted part of the sofa next to me for Li to sit and he did.
“I’ve set a date for our wedding,” Li surprised me.
“For when? I asked.
“Monday,” Li replied.
“This Monday?” I asked.
“But that’s only 3 days away, today’s Friday,” I said with worry.
“I know but you did agree to marry me next week,” Li said. I didn’t say anything, I’m in shock. We only met last week and now we are getting married.
“I was thinking maybe we could have a party to celebrate,” Li said cautiously.
“You mean an engagement party? I don’t think that’s a good idea,” I replied,
“Why?” Li asked.
“I’m shy,” I admitted.
“No you’re not, you talk to me all the time,” Li argued.
“That’s because you are my mate, I only talk to you and Jenny,”
“Who’s Jenny?” Li asked in confusion.
“My best friend,” I answered.
“It’s ok, I’ll only invite some of my friends seeing as I can’t invite my family,” Li assured me.
“I’m sorry,” I said while not knowing what else to say. Li told me he lost his family.
“It’s ok that was a long time ago,” Li shrugged it off.
“I can’t invite my family either remember?” I said.
“Sage how old are you?” Li asked suddenly to change the subject.
“21,” I said and Li gave a sigh of relief.
“I’m glad. I thought you were too young for me, ” Li admitted.
“Really? How old did you think I was?” I said with a smile.
“I thought you were under 18, it’s good you’re old enough for me,” Li said happily.
“How old are you?” I asked.
“24,” Li replied.
“At least someone looks their age,” I complimented.
“You think I look my age?” Li asked.
“Thank you,” Li said with a smile.
“It’s ok,” I smiled back.
Then there was silence. After a while I broke it.
“So when do you want to have our engagement party?” I asked.
“How about tomorrow?” Li suggested.
“Ok,” I agreed.
“Tomorrow it is then. I guess we should start inviting people,”
“That’ll be easy for me. I’ll only invite Jenny, I don’t know anyone else,”
“I’m sorry but by the time the party is over you will know a lot more people,” Li apologised.
“How many?” I asked.
“About 20 but you only need to concentrate on getting to know one person,” Li assured me.
“Who?” I asked curiously.
“My best friend,”
