Chapter 6: Trapped – Part 2/3
She smiled before her facial expression became grave. “But you need to be careful; your leg is sensitive and freshly healed. So, any accidents or trauma to the leg and it will break again, very easily.” She scolded me as if she was my mother.
I nodded erratically. “Yes, of course.” I agreed with her, excitement bursting inside of me.
I got off the bed and engulfed her in a huge hug. “Thank you so much, Ruth, for everything. You have no idea; how grateful I am for you.” I said before letting her go and smiling at her.
She smiled back at me; then she began to tear up. “You are so welcome, Amelia. It has been a pleasure getting to know you.” She expressed to me.
Suddenly, an angry voice came from behind us. “Umm, excuse me? What about me bitch?” Trevor shouted, glaring at me.
I rushed over and gave him a big hug. “I think I’m going to miss you the most, you’ve been such a great friend to me, and I couldn’t thank you enough, Trevor,” I said with tears streaming down my face now.
Trevor closed his eyes, obviously not wanting us to see him so emotional “Goddamn you, Amelia, you’re making me cry now.” He reared back and started fanning his face.
I laughed at him and his goofy antics. “Can I go home now?” I asked them.
They looked at each other with troubled expressions and remained silent, but it felt as though they were having a quiet conversation.
My brows scrunched together, the silence becoming daunting now. “What? What is it?” I asked with concern.
Trevor looked to me, a solemn expression. “Well, you have to speak with Damon first,” Trevor said.
My shoulders slumped. “Why?” I didn’t understand why I couldn’t just go home. But then I remembered Trevor telling me that they keep their kind a secret from humans, and most likely, I am now a liability, a danger to revealing their secret.
Ruth walked over and held my hand in hers, squeezing it gently. “Because your human, and if you want to leave here, the Alpha has to grant it,” Ruth informed me, guilt in her tone.
I rolled my eyes and sighed. “Fine, can you take me to see Damon, please,” I said, looking between the two of them. I wanted to get this over with and get out of here, so I could finally go home.
Trevor came to my side, giving me a half-smile. “Come on, doll; I’ll take you.”
I smiled. “Thank you.” I turned towards the door to leave, fingers crossed that this wouldn’t end badly and he would allow me to go without question, but one way or another, I’m getting out of here; I don’t care what it takes!
Amelia had seemed so weak and broken that day in the hospital, except when she slapped me. I smiled at the memory, she had fire and strength inside of her, and when she struck me, I wanted more than anything to devour her mouth with mine. I almost prayed she would do it again so that I could spank that ass of hers.
Since that day in the hospital, I hadn’t spoken with Amelia, knowing she needed her space. The urge to be near her was excruciating, and I craved her presence constantly. So, every night after she fell asleep, I would sneak into her room and watch over her, gently running a finger across those rosy cheeks of hers.
I craved to feel her soft skin with my hands, exploring every inch of her body as she writhed beneath me. But I held my composure by a fucking thread!
I kept tabs on her through Trevor, a nurse in the medical wing. I trusted him and knew he wouldn’t try anything, as she wasn’t his type. He informed that she was healing rapidly and quite well, which eased myself and my wolf.
I was sitting in my office, trying to catch up on some things that I had been avoiding, as attempting to focus on something other than Amelia felt damn near impossible. Then, I was disrupted by a knock at the door.
“Come in.” I groaned out.
Trevor walked into my office with Amelia trailing behind him. I straightened myself in my chair, and my wolf began to howl inside my head with excitement, finally seeing her awake. I pushed him back down before digging my nails into my thighs, trying to contain him and myself.
Trevor narrowed his eyes at me briefly, and then they widened a little before he shook his head. “Amelia asked to see you, Alpha.” He told me with a shit-eating grin on his face. Just by the way he was acting, I could tell that he knew something was up, that he knew I was struggling around her right now.
I glared at him. “Thank you, Trevor; you may leave now.” I shooed him with my hand.
He bowed his head and turned to leave the room, but Amelia grabbed his arm, not wanting him to go. My wolf growled upon seeing her touch another man, and some of that growl had slipped out.
Their heads whipped in my direction, Trevor wide-eyed and Amelia confused. But thankfully, Trevor brushed it off and looked back to Amelia, whispering something to her. I focused on the whispers, so I could hear what he said.
“Don’t worry, doll; you’ll be fine.” He squeezed her shoulder to comfort her.
She sucked in a deep breath and then nodded as she watched Trevor leave the room and close the door behind him, leaving her alone with me.
She hesitantly looked to me but then straightened herself, and any sign of fear was wiped from her features, but the smell of it still lingered in the air. I chuckled to myself at her attempt to be brave in front of me; she was my little spitfire.
I cleared my throat and gestured to the chair in front of my desk. “Would you like to take a seat?” I offered her.
She shook her head. “No, thank you. I’ve been immobile for too long, and it feels good to stand up.”
I nodded. “I understand. Now, what did you want to speak to me about?” I asked as I leaned back in my chair and folded my arms across my chest. I loved to intimidate her and watch her squirm.
She gulped harshly as she played with her hands, “I...I... would like to go home.” She finally squeaked out.
My blood began to boil at the thought of her leaving me, and my wolf began to stir, wanting to keep her here with us
I sat up quickly and slammed my fists down on my desk, unable to control my rage. “NO! You cannot go home.” I boomed.
