If you haven’t read Chapter 27, here is the link:
Waking up this morning was like a breath of fresh air. I rolled over on my side to find Dean, half-naked in my bed. I smiled as I watched him sleep. I snuggled close to him, our warm bodies pressed against each other.
For the first time since Logan and I found out we were powerful witches, I felt relaxed. Nothing was going wrong, for once. I was happy. Something that I hadn’t been in a very long time. Not to mention, my brother was happy, too.
Although our mother was murdered by Ricky, things have been difficult, but our dad is dropping everything and staying with us since he is and our Aunt Marie, our only family we have left.
“Morning beautiful,” Dean spoke as his eyes were still shut. I gave him a kiss on his lips and when I pulled away, he opened his eyes. “I want more of your kisses.”
Dean grabbed my waist and pulled me back to him, as he started placing kisses up my shoulders and neck. “We should get up.” I laughed as he kept kissing me, as I was trying to talk. I faced him and smiled.
“Did you sleep well?” He asked as I nodded, laying on his chest. “How about we just stay and cuddle all day? I’ll get up and make breakfast in bed for you.” He looked down at me and smiled.
“As long as I don’t have to cook,” I said as he placed a kiss on my forehead and got up from his bed, I watched as he threw on some sweatpants and left the room. I grabbed his button-up shirt and threw it over my head as I laid back down in his bed, soaking up his scent.
Dean came in with a whole tray of food and laid it on the bed. He jumped right in and placed a kiss on my lips. “Hungry?” He asked as I went and took a piece of bacon off of the tray and placed it in my mouth. “I take that as a yes.”
Once we finished eating, we both laid back on his bed. “I’m stuffed.” I said as snuggled next to him. “Thank you for feeding me.”
Dean laughed as he looked into my eyes. “Your welcome.” We ended up passing out in each other’s arms.
“The house was completely trashed? That doesn’t make sense.” I said, holding the phone against my ear as I talked to my brother.
“I’m just gonna grab what I need, but whoever did this only wanted to destroy the kids’ rooms,” Tanner said as I sat down. I knew exactly who it was. “I’ll text you pictures of what this mess looks like.”
“Alright, but please be safe.” I reminded him. “Text me when you are on your way.”
“Okay, I will do that. I’ll see you soon.” As I hung up the phone and place it on the table, grabbing my glass of water and taking a sip.
James walked, carrying a jar of pickles. “Here you are.” James handed me the jar as I smiled. As much as I just craved them 5 minutes ago, I didn’t feel like eating. “What’s wrong? I thought you were dying for pickles.”
“Okay, what’s changed your mind about the pickles?” James chuckled. I looked up at him and frowned. “Are we in danger again?”
“Yes, but this isn’t about us. It’s about the twins and I did something a long time ago that I was only thinking about myself.” I said as a tear fell from my cheek. “I didn’t mean to do it, James. I was pressed for time and the only way to get her away from my brother.”
James looked concerned. I had never told him this or anyone for that matter. He got down next to me and held my hand out. “Whatever you did, you had a reason to, at the time. It happens. Look at me, I chose to be a drug addict and an almost lost everything, but you saved me.”
“James, this is different,” I said as I stood up and paced back and forth. I finally turned and looked at him. “Remember Jade for a second.”
“Okay, what does this have to do with what we were talking about?”
“Just do it! Please!” I snapped as he nodded. “Think about her past.”
“Remember that boyfriend her sister had,” I said, as I watched him still looked confused. “He did something to Jade.”
“Lucas?” He said as he looked at me. “Marie, you didn’t.” He finally knew what I was talking about.
Lucas was Jade’s sisters’ boyfriend who raped her, on the same night, he had killed her sister in a car crash. I bailed him out of jail and his plan was to take Jade and the twins. I don’t know why I was so stupid to let him out of jail.
He ended up getting back in jail but ended up getting out last month. I understand why Jade wanted to get the kids and leave. She didn’t want him to find them.
“I wasn’t thinking, but it makes sense of why Jade wanted to take the twins from here and go. He’s looking for them, James. Tanner called me when he and Lewy got to his house.” My phone beeped as I looked down and it was two pictures.
Logan’s room was trashed and on the wall was spray-painted saying, ‘Luke Jr, my son.’. In the second picture, Jade’s room was trashed as well, but this time he wrote, ‘Jade, my princess. I will FIND you!’ As I showed the pictures to James, he threw his hands in his hair.
“I swear, these kids can’t catch and fucking break! They went from normal teenagers to witches to losing their mother and now, we have to deal with him!” James looked at me.
“Should we call a meeting? They should know what’s going on.”
I nodded as I took another sip of my water. “Let me tell them what I did. They should hear this part from me.”
James came over and pulled me into his arms. “Don’t you worry, I’m not gonna let anything happen to them or you.”
