CHAPTER 15: Regret – Part 1/3

The bed shook, waking me from my sleep and causing me to stir. I rolled over and opened my eyes, only to see Damon’s naked ass walking towards the bathroom; his ass was so perfect and lush. Wait! What the fuck did we do?

I sat up quickly, realizing I was naked too and in Damon’s room. I pulled the sheets up, covered myself, and then jumped out of bed. Damon and I had sex last night, deliciously good sex, it was mind-blowing, but I had promised myself that I wouldn’t give into him, into my desires.

He and I are not the same; we come from very different families, worlds and backgrounds, we could never work. Damon says I am his mate, but I don’t even fully understand what that means. Trevor and Damon had only told me minimal details. Aside from all that, I don’t fit in here; some people here hate me and want me gone.

Being the coward I am, I snuck out of his room and made a quick dash into my room, closing and locking the door behind me. I sat down on the bed and let out a trembling breath as I rubbed my hands down my face, unsure of what to do.

My feelings were growing for him, feelings I had never felt before. They were strong and overwhelming, not making things any easier. I needed to talk to someone, and the only real friend I had here was Trevor. Hopefully, he could help me.

I got up from the bed and went into the washroom, needing a shower. After my shower, I quickly got dressed and snuck out of my room, careful not to run into Damon. The house was quiet, as it was early morning, which meant no one was around yet. I slowly opened the front door and stepped out, closing it gently behind me, as I didn’t want anyone to hear me.

I ran towards the other building and walked inside, ensuring no one else was around. I tip-toed around the place, feeling like a childish idiot, and made my way towards Trevor’s home. I finally reached his place and knocked on the door softly, no answer. So I knocked again, a little louder this time, nothing again. I groaned, becoming frustrated, weren’t they supposed to have exceptional hearing or something?

I was about to knock again when a sleepy Trevor answered the door. “What?” He growled out.

I abruptly pushed him inside and closed the door behind me. Trevor shook his head, and his eyes widened. “Oh, Amelia. Yea, sure, come on in.” He said in a somewhat joking manner.

I walked over and flopped onto the couch. Trevor joined me, sitting next to me. His brows furrowed as he looked at me. “What’s up? Why are you here at the crack of dawn?” He asked sleepily.

I sucked in a deep breath. “Damon told me that I am his mate, and…we had sex,” I told him, feeling a little ashamed of myself.

Trevor’s eyes nearly bulged out of their sockets, and he gaped at me before a broad grin formed on his lips. “Ha, I knew it. I knew you were his mate and how was it?” He asked excitedly.

I was dumbfounded by his reaction, not expecting him to react like this. I leaped up from the couch and stared down at him. “Trevor, are you serious right now? He told me I am his mate, whatever the fuck that truly means, and we had sex, which is going to make things so much harder now when I leave.” I shouted as I paced the room.

He started laughing, almost hysterically. I threw my hands up in frustration. “Care to share what is so funny?” I demanded in an annoyed tone.

He smirked. “Yea, you’re not leaving, babe.” He told me blatantly.

My brows scrunched together. “What do you mean I am not leaving?”

He patted the couch, urging me to sit down and reluctantly, I did. “Finding your mate is something very special to our kind. That person is your soulmate, the other half of you. Damon is an Alpha, which means the urge to mark you and mate with you is even stronger for him. Because of that, he won’t be able to let you go; his wolf won’t let him.” Trevor’s features softened as he stared into my eyes.

I sighed, not getting any help from Trevor. “Damon told me yesterday that he can’t reject me, that it could kill him; why?”

He pursed his lips. “If Damon were to reject you, he and his wolf would most likely die, especially because you guys had sex, which only intensifies the bond between you both. The more time you spend together, the more intimate you are with each other, the harder it is to break the bond. Imagine having your heart ripped from your chest and then lit on fire; that is what it would be like for him if he did reject you or lose you.”

Damon had explained things to me a little bit, but not in such incredible detail, and that was something I honestly didn’t want for him; I didn’t want him to suffer or die.

“What about his father?” I asked curiously.

Trevor rubbed the back of his neck. “Damon’s father, Xavier, is a cruel and sadistic man who despises humans.” He had a look of fear in his eyes as he spoke of Damon’s father.

My chest felt heavy and tight with his words, “But, why?” I asked him, my voice low.

He let out a heavy sigh. “Hunter’s are human, and Damon’s mother Marianne was killed by hunters. She had been out in the woods with Damon when a group of hunters crossed their path. Marianne hid Damon and fought the hunters to protect her son, but she was outnumbered. From that day forth, Xavier has hated all humans with a fiery passion. He raised Damon to have the same mindset, and when he was Alpha, he taught us the same as he did with Damon, to hate humans. Most of us do; others, not so much. Finally, we realized that not all humans are bad, just like you.” He said with a cheeky smile, and I rolled my eyes at his attempt to lighten the mood.
