Chapter 25

I was watching a movie with Kenneth in the castles huge theatre room, but the whole time my mind kept wandering towards Dimitri and the Shadows and everything Esther has told me.

“I really don’t like him. He pisses me off.” Kenneth said snapping me out of my thoughts.

“Huh?” I said confused about what he was saying.

Kenneth frowned at me. “You weren’t paying attention were you?” He asked and I sheepishly shook my head no.

“Sorry.” I mumbled causing him to sigh as he pulled me in for a hug. “Something seems to be bothering you. What is it?” He asks, wrapping his arms tightly around me.

I rest my head on his chest and shake my head. “It’s nothing. I just... Really miss my parents.” I said. Although that wasn’t a lie, it wasn’t quite the truth either.

He leaned in and pressed a kiss to my forehead. “I miss my parents too Isabella, so I know how you feel. If I could bring you to meet your parents, I would have by now. But I don’t have the power to do so.” He says as he gently rubs my back.

“I know.” I said, snuggling as close to him as I could, enjoying the heat radiating off of him.

“I’m sorry.” He said and I shake my head.

“It’s not your fault, Kenneth. If it’s anyones fault, it’s Dimitri’s. He took me away from my family, not you. So you have nothing to feel bad about.” I said as I grabbed his face in between my hands and brought my lips down to meet his. He hungrily kissed me back surprising me by the suddenness.

I moved down onto his lap as we passionately made out, his hands wandering all over my body. His fingers slipped down to the hem of my shirt and he pulled it off instantly, not giving me a chance to protest. I wasn’t sure I liked the direction we were suddenly going. I really don’t think I’m ready to be with him like that. Call me old-fashioned but I always thought I’d do it after marriage when I’m completely sure I’ve found the perfect guy I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Kenneth was perfect and I loved him but I just wasn’t sure if I was ready to give my virginity up. Maybe, I’d give it to him, after I’ve been with him for a while longer, but not yet.

I felt Kenneth tug my pants completely off of me, leaving me half naked. “Kenneth.” I started pulling away from him causing him to groan in annoyance.

“I know, I know. We’re in public.” He said as he stood up with me in his arms. I wrapped my legs around his waist, and my arms around his neck holding on tightly. He then walked out the theatre room and I was guessing he was taking me to his room. Was he planning on sleeping with me? Because if he was than I needed to tell him that I wasn’t ready to sleep with him yet.

The problem was, I didn’t know how to. Was he going to get mad at me if I said I didn’t want to do it yet? What if he left me? I knew I was being stupid, but I didn’t want him to leave me.

He crossed a hallway, and walked into a another smaller one which was barely used. He then pressed me up against the wall there and pressed his lips onto mine, kissing me feverishly. I kissed him back, hoping he wouldn’t take it any farther than this.

But then I felt his fingers creeping up my back and towards my bra strap. I tensed up. He wasn’t planning on taking it off right? I mean he couldn’t, especially not in a hallway, where people could walk by.

I then felt him unclasp it, causing me to pull away from him. “Kenneth!” I exclaimed causing him to shush me.

“Don’t worry, no ones going to walk by here.” He said before he pressed his mouth down to mine, quieting me down. He ripped my bra completely off of me throwing it away, causing me to gasp in shock and anger. I pressed myself up close to him, since I didn’t want him or anyone to see me bare like that. He probably seemed to think, I was okay with what he just did and so he proceeded on towards my panties. “Kenneth!” I practically yelled causing him to stop and look down at me.

“What?” He asked in annoyance.

“What is wrong with you?” I exclaimed and he glared at me.

“What’s wrong with me is that I’m still dating a whore like you. Why are you pretending to like me Isabella? Is it to make Dimitri jealous?” He asked in anger. “I know you slept with him again. So if you can let Dimitri touch you, then you shouldn’t have a problem with me, may I remind you, your actual boyfriend, to do the same!”

“I never slept with him!” I exclaimed. “I didn’t sleep with anyone and I’m not ready to either.”

“Okay now you’re just saying that.” He said and I shook my head immediately.

“No I’m not!” I exclaimed.

“Then fucking prove it! If you truly care about me and have no lusty feelings for Dimitri, then you’ll sleep with me.” He stated and I stared back at him horrified. He couldn’t possibly be asking that from me. I can’t just throw my virginity around like that. It’s a special part of me that I’m not going to just simply get rid of. But I can’t lose him either. I love him.

I closed my eyes thinking hard about this, before I leaned forward and pressed my lips to his. I really didn’t want to do it. I really didn’t. But I had to prove to him that I didn’t have any type of feelings for Dimitri and that all I cared about was him.

Kenneth relaxed and kissed me back when all of a sudden we both heard a voice angrily yell Kenneth’s name. Kenneth immediately pulled away, relief filling me at the interruption. We both turned to see who it was and were both surprised to see it was Dimitri.

Dimitri was standing there shirtless, glaring at Kenneth with so much anger evident in his eyes. “She clearly doesn’t want to be with you like that so stop forcing her to!” He growled out lowly.

Kenneth glared back at Dimitri, holding me tight to him. “I gave her a choice and she chose what she wanted.” Kenneth said.

“No you didn’t! You’re forcing her to do it. She obviously doesn’t want to lose you so therefore she feels like she’s obligated to sleep with you to prove her love towards you. If you actually did care about her, you wouldn’t be making her do something she’s clearly not comfortable with. You’d trust her. You’d try and understand her if you really did love and care about her.” Dimitri said causing Kenneth to grow angrier and angrier by the second.

“Stay the fuck out of my relationship! We can do whatever the fuck we want, it’s not up to you. It’s none of your damn business at all.” Kenneth growled back angrily.

“Actually, it is my fucking business! Especially if Isabella’s involved. She is under my order and my protection. I make the decisions for her here. She has to follow my orders, not your stupid ones. And I don’t want Isabella to be in this relationship with you. So therefore she is not allowed to be.” Dimitri said in a low dangerous voice.

Normally I would speak up and object, but Dimitri was right. If Kenneth did care about me, he would try to understand me and not make me do things I wasn’t comfortable with. It seemed Dimitri understood me way better than Kenneth and Kenneth was my boyfriend.

“Well Isabella wants to be with me and you can’t take her away from me. Come on Isabella, tell him.” Kenneth said turning to look at me. I looked up and met Kenneth’s eyes before turning my head and meeting Dimitri’s furious gaze. I then looked down at the ground staying quiet. “I see how it is. You’d rather be with the cold-hearted murderer that kills your own kind than me. Someone who actually loves you and cares about you.” Kenneth said before letting go of me, watching me fall to the ground. I whimpered as I fell down, hitting the ground hard.

“Have fun with your bitch!” Kenneth said before walking away.

“You asshole!” I yelled back after him, as he walked away. Once he left, Dimitri and I were the only ones left in the hallway.

I felt angry and so embarrassed, not to mention the only thing I was wearing was my panties. I awkwardly lay on the ground on my front because I was completely bare from the front and I didn’t want Dimitri to see me bare like that.

I felt like crying and screaming in frustration. I was so angry at Kenneth. And the annoying thing was that I couldn’t even get up off the floor since my front was completely bare. And Dimitri wasn’t even wearing a shirt so I couldn’t even ask him to give me his shirt.

I felt Dimitri kneel down in front of me and lay his hand out in front of me, silently asking me to take it. “I can’t.” I said quietly. “I’m practically naked.”

“I won’t look.” He said. “I promise.”

“But how am I supposed to get to the bathroom. We’re going to have to walk through so many hallways and by so many people. And their all going to see me naked.” I exclaimed.

“I can always carry you. You can press yourself up against me like you were with Kenneth. That way neither I, nor anyone else will be able to see your front.” He suggested and I contemplated it, before nodding my head.

He held his hand out again and I was going to take it once he looked away from me, but his gaze stayed fixed on my face. “I’m not going to look Isabella. I promise and I like to keep my promises.” He said and I nodded my head, hesitantly putting my hand into his and got up off the floor. He did keep his promise and kept his eyes trained solely on mine. Never once did his eyes falter and look down. They stayed fixed on my eyes.

I then walked up close to him and he slipped his hands around me, down my back and towards my thighs, causing me to shiver. He then picked me up, quite easily as I wrapped my arms around his neck and my legs around his waist, holding on tightly.

During this whole time, our gazes stayed locked with each others. I couldn’t tell what he was thinking at all, through the seemingly blank expression on his face. And his eyes were completely unreadable too. I shivered again at the feel of his warm skin against mine.

His hands rested on my thighs, as he carried me down the hallway. I felt like I should say something to break this awkward silence. But that was the thing. It didn’t feel awkward. It was weird how nice and normal the silence felt as we both simply stared at each other.

“You don’t deserve Kenneth.” Dimitri suddenly spoke up. I remained quiet, not sure what to say. “You deserve someone a hundred times better. You deserve the best. Someone who actually does care about you and understands what’s right and what’s wrong for you.” He continued on.

“I don’t think I deserve anyone, honestly. I didn’t really stop to think about how Kenneth felt. I should have. If I loved him then I should have considered his feelings when I slept beside you.” I said quietly.

“That’s the thing Isabella. You don’t love him. You never loved him. Believe me, I know what love is when I see it. And what you felt, wasn’t love. It was just an infatuation. It’s the idea of being with Kenneth, you’re in love with. Not actually him.” Dimitri said as we turned down another corner, getting looks by other demons as we passed by. But one look from Dimitri made them instantly look away.

“How would you know?” I ask matter-of-factly.

“Like I’ve said before, I’ve lived way longer than you have and seen many, many things. And from what I know, what you felt for Kenneth was not love at all. Same goes for him. He didn’t love you either. He just liked the idea of you. Just wait until you actually fall in love for real and then you’ll come back to me, telling me how right I am about this and how wrong you were.” Dimitri said causing me to shake my head in disagreement.

“I still think you’re wrong and I’ll always think you’re wrong. But even if you do prove me wrong and I do fall in love with someone for real, I would not come and tell you about it. Because I don’t want you going, ‘I told you so’. That’d really hurt my pride.” I say causing him to chuckle.

“Isabella, I don’t care about saying ‘I told you so’. I’m just saying my opinion which is I don’t think you love Kenneth.” He said and I roll my eyes saying whatever.

We soon reach his room and he settles me down in the bathroom, making sure to not look at me. He then leaves the bathroom and returns with a pair of clothes, making sure to keep his gaze trained on the ground. “Thank you.” I say before he leaves me to change.
