Marie’s P.O.V.
James pulled me out of the room after he questioned what I had just done to help Athena. He walked me into the meeting room, where we had all sat before. I could feel how sad and angry he was with me, his aura was strong with his emotions.

“What the hell did you do?!” He yelled once he shut the door behind him. “Why didn’t you talk to me about this?”

I knew I had to face him, but the tears kept pouring out of my eyes. I had to do everything that I could to save Athena, I wasn’t going to let my family suffer from my choices.

I turned to face him, “If I didn’t, Athena wasn’t going to make it.”

James’ face flushed as I threw my hands over my face and slid down against the wall to the floor. Hugging my knees and softly sobbing in my arms.

I knew what I did, I just didn’t think he knew how much it hurt me to do what I did to say, Athena. My brother had already lost his wife to a battle we didn’t need to go through, he didn’t need to lose Athena too.

“I thought the coma Elle put her in would’ve saved her?” James broke the silence and asked me. I looked up to him, as he then lowered down next to me.

I wiped my eyes. “The coma she was put in, could only do so much, but her wounds were deeper than Elle expected. She would be in a coma state until her body gave up.”

I looked over at James, a tear fell from his eyes, as I placed out a hand to him, but he pulled it away from my grasp. “You should’ve told me.” He snapped at me.

“There was no time, James. Once Athena was in her Earth coma, it would’ve been a matter of minutes that her body would start to shut down and it would’ve been too late.” I tried to explain, I gave him a hard look, as he turned away from my touch once again.
I stood up and looked down at him. “I know I should’ve talked to you about it, but it was my fault that Athena got taken in the first place. If it wasn’t for me, Lucas would have never known where Jade was and if she was pregnant or not. I was selfish and stupid, but don’t ignore me.” I started to head towards the door before turning to look back over to him.

He didn’t glance or move, as I kept my eyes on him. “It hurt me too. I don’t know if I’ll ever have a chance to be a mother, but I know that Tanner will get more time with her.

She’s the only one that reminds me of what I did because she looks exactly like her mother.”

I left the room and started to head back to the healing room when Tanner ran out of the room, happy as can be.

It worked.

I smiled, knowing that I did something right for once in my life. Tanner ran over and embraced me into his arms, before pulling back and looking down at what used to be my swollen belly. “What happens to your belly?”

A tear fell from my cheek as I wiped it away. “I had a miscarriage,” I lied. “It just wasn’t my time.”

Tanner embraced me into another hug, squeezing me tightly. “I’m so sorry. Don’t worry, I’m sure Jade is taking care of it for us.” More tears started to fall down from my eyes as I didn’t want him to know the truth of what really happened to my baby.

He pulled away and smiled. “Athena’s been asking for you, she’s awake and doing great.” Tanner smiled as I nodded.

“I’ll be there in a second,” I said as my brother turned and walked back into the healing room.

I wanted to take a minute and try my best not to break down when I go see her, but before I could go in, James stopped me.

“You lied to him.” James mocked me as I turned to face him.

“So? I am protecting him. What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him.” I snapped back at him, wiping my tears from my face and then taking a deep breath, staring back at him, “If I told him what I did, he would never forgive me.”

Unforgotten – Chapter 36

Logan’s P.O.V.

“It’s up.” Aunt Marie said as Dean and I focused together on the farmhouse that Lucas was keeping Athena. “Yes, it’s up.”

I took a deep breath and focused inside the farmhouse. I grew with anger when I saw what was happening to my sister. It took so much of me to not want to break from this forcefield to go after Lucas.

I had to focus, Dad was going in there to get her out. I looked over at Dean, as I knew he read my thoughts, I could see the pain in his eyes as he saw what I saw. It truly broke my heart to know that someone, who loved my sister just as much as I did, understood this family burden and pain.

“Now!” James shouted as Dean and I focused our magic onto each other, chanting.

We were creating a spell that would prevent my father from getting hurt, with anything. Let’s just hope we are able to keep the spell going.

________________________________________________________________________

Athena’s P.O.V. 

“Let’s make this quick, it won’t be much longer that someone comes for her.” The man, that looked like a preacher said. Opening the book and clearing his throat.

I felt very funny, everything I did and felt was slow and wavey like I was about to fall asleep. I didn’t feel like myself, let alone, I wasn’t sure how I was still standing up still.

“Yeah, yeah.” I heard Lucas said, as he pulled out his phone and dialing a number. “Glen, make sure that the car is ready to go. Once we make it official, we’ve got to go.” As he hung up the phone and walked over to me.

Giving me that same evil grin, he held my hand, squeezing it tightly as I tried to pull away. “You are mine, dollface.”

I tried to speak something, but I wasn’t able to. I wanted to say something, anything that would get this all to end sooner.

“I’m just gonna skip on to the I do’s.” He looked over at Lucas, “Do you take this woman to be your wife?”

“I do, just like I would’ve with your mother.” He said, I just wanted to throw up.

“Do you take this man to be your husband?” The preacher asked, but nothing was able to come out of my mouth, I tried, but I wasn’t even able to manage any moments. I didn’t know what the hell Lucas gave me, but I felt like I was a zombie.

“Of course she does, she’s speechless.” Lucas filled it, as I glared at him. Before the preacher could rap up, the door busted down open, with my father and Eli walking through it.

“Give me my daughter back, now.” My father spoke as Lucas held up a knife to my throat, slowly, I started to have feeling in my legs.

“You took Jade away from me, Tanner, now it’s your turn to lose everything you have ever had!” Lucas said before I felt the pain coming from my neck. “One more move and she’s dead.”

“You really think you’ll kill the one thing that reminds you of Jade?” My father snapped at him as I started to wiggle my feet. “You never had Jade, to begin with, Lucas. You ever had and you never will so let my daughter go before I end your miserable life.”

I then took my right leg and slammed my foot onto his toe. He released me from his grasp, but before I could turn away, I felt a sharp pain on the side of my stomach, as I dropped to the ground, moaning in pain.

“I didn’t mean to do it!” I watched as Lucas held his hands in the air, trying to come forward to me, but my father had shot in the head with a crossbow.

Eli rushed to my side, as I felt the blood gushing out of my body. I started to feel weaker and weaker before my eyes felt like closing.

“No! No, no! I’m not going to lose you again!” I heard my father say as I felt lifeless from my body.

____________________________________________________________

Marie’s P.O.V.

“It’s over, he’s dead,” I said as Dean and Logan relaxed and ended their forcefield. Tanner had texted me to let me know that Lucas was gone, but didn’t mention anything about Athena, which I’m hoping she was okay, but the vibe I was feeling, something didn’t seem right.

“Elle, why do you have the healing stuff out, no one’s,” I paused for a second when I realized that something was wrong, something was very wrong. I gathered more supplies as I entered the healing room.

“Marie, I’ll take care of it,” Elle said, as James’ rushed into the room.

“She’s coming, it’s not good,” James spoke as I threw my hands up and started to cry.

It was completely my fault that Athena got hurt. It was my idea to free Lucas to get back at Jade. I was a horrible human being for that. James came over and wrapped his arms around me. I pushed him away, I wanted to see what my actions did. I wanted to remember this.

I wanted to look back on what I’ve done, if she dies, I’ll lose my family for good.

“Let’s go, you shouldn’t see her like this,” James said as I saw them approach with Athena. My brother was carrying her, they had tried to patch her up, but she was wearing a bloody old wedding dress, that Elle had cut her free of.

“It’s my fault, James!” I yelled at him. Tanner placed Athena down as he stood over the side of his daughter’s lifeless body.

“Stay with me, Athena, please, stay with daddy.” He whispered in her ear as I watched him hold onto his daughter’s hand.

Elle then looked up at everyone. “Everyone needs to leave me to do my work if you want her to survive.” Once she spoke those words, I looked over at Tanner and mouthed the words, “I’m sorry,” As I left the room.

I was gonna make sure Athena was going to live. I looked over at James and pushed him away. “I need to be alone.” I snapped at him as I went back into my room.

I didn’t want him to be here for what I was about to do. As soon as I closed the door behind him, I cried, even more, rubbing my swollen belly. “I’m so sorry, but I have to make sure she lives, little one.”

Unforgotten – Chapter 35

If you haven’t read Chapter 34, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/01/27/unforgotten-chapter-34/


Athena’s P.O.V.
My head was pounded as soon as I woke up. I couldn’t remember anything that had to happen last before I blacked out completely. I then felt a burning pain on my arm and noticed that something like a needle had been in my skin.

Looking around, I was still in this farmhouse, as I stood up, I was in a different room, but when I looked out the window, I wasn’t on the first floor. This room was just like the entire house, old and filled with cobwebs and lots of dust.

I walked around the room a little bit more and walked passed a standing mirror when I caught myself of what I was wearing. A wedding dress. I had to find a way out, as I headed towards the door, but when I turned the knob, it was locked.

I had to get out of here soon, I wasn’t sure what Lucas had given me, but I started to feel dizzy again. I laid back down onto the bed hoping to see if this would help me with my headache.
_______________________________________________________________________
Tanner’s P.O.V.
“So, is it up yet?” Eli asked me as I got off the phone with my son and Dean, they were working on a force field on the farmhouse. Before they could do it, we had to take out some of the guys that were waiting for us in front of the house.

I grabbed one of the guys and a crossbow and got out of the truck. As I was loading up the crossbow, Eli got out of the truck and came over. I looked up at him, as I threw the crossbow onto my back. “If the force field doesn’t work or they can’t keep it up for long, we need to get rid of some of these guys.”

I handed Eli a gun, but he shook his head. “You have your way, I have mine.”

“Alright, let’s start from the back of the house and work our way to the door,” I said as I loaded up my shotgun.

I grabbed onto Eli’s back as he ran like lighting to the back of the house. I grabbed my crossbow as we saw some guy smoking a cigarette outback, I shot him in the neck, as he fell to the ground in seconds.

Then out of nowhere, I heard a scream. My heart dropped as I heard Athena. Something inside me snapped as I ran passed Eli, but he caught me pulling me back.

“You need to stay focused. If you go out there, you are gonna end up getting yourself killed.” Eli tried to explain, but I pulled myself away from him, looking over at the other side of the house, pulling up another arrow as I aimed my bow at the back of some guys head.

“You wanted to help me, then help me with these guys because if I get to my daughter and she’s dead, I’m going to kill you.” I snapped as I released the arrow, hitting the guy in the back of the head and him dropping from his feet.

I pulled up another arrow fast as the guy in front of him turned and saw the body on the ground. Before I could move in and shoot him with the arrow I had loaded, Eli came from behind him and torn his neck open.

Eli looked at me and then we both shifted towards the front of the house. “Time to kill this son-of-a bitch once and for all,” I whispered as Eli and I attacked.
______________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
“Get off of me!” I screamed as some random guy had come in and grabbed me to tied my wrists up again.

I was able to kick him in the leg, but I tripped, forgetting that he had chained one of my legs to a cinderblock. “Stupid bitch!” The guy said, slapping me across the face.

Lucas came in and saw me struggling to get up from the ground. “What did you do to her?!” He screamed at the guy as Lucas helped me up, looking at my cheek, which had turned red from the slap.

“Sorry boss, but the bitch wouldn’t hold still. She fucking kicked me!” The guy complained as Lucas pulled out a gun and shot him point-blank in front of me.

“Let’s go, it’s about time I finally make you mine.” He had an evil smirk on his face. I prayed that someone would find me and save me from what was about to happen.

Unforgotten – Chapter 33

If you haven’t read Chapter 32, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/01/13/unforgotten-chapter-32/

Athena’s P.O.V.
I watched as Lucas tied down my Aunt Marie and James, into chairs next to me, as the other man stood by the door, watching to see if anyone else was going to notice we were all missing. Lucas turned to face me.

“Why didn’t you just take me?” I asked as he smirked, staring into my eyes, giving me goosebumps as he did.

“Well, there is a list of reasons as to why, but first, where is your mother. I expected her to be here, but yet I can’t find her.” He asked as he went into my kitchen and looked for a knife. He then proceeded to my Aunt Maire. “I’m not gonna ask again, Athena. Where is your mother?”

Tears started to run down my face as I watched him hold the knife against my Aunt’s neck, she started to cry as well. “Don’t hurt her, please.”

Lucas backed away and leaned into my face. “Where is she?!” He screamed in my face. I cried more, I didn’t want to say it, but I wanted to protect them.

“S-Shes dead,” I said, crying more tears, but I watched as his face went from angry to sad. He pulled away from my face, running his other hand through his hair and face.

“No-no, she isn’t! She can’t be!” He looked over at the other man, and got up into his face, holding the knife against his neck. “You lied to me then, Eli. You told me that she was here with my kids!”

“She was. I don’t know what happened.” The guy, Eli, explained, I saw a bit of blood started to run down his neck, but not enough to put him in danger of being dead. “Ask her,” He immediately pointed to my Aunt Marie.

Lucas walked over and placed his hand on her stomach. “Now Marie, if you want that thing in there to live, you need to tell me how she died.” He had the point of the knife touching her belly as I watched, trying to get my hand loose from the rope.
I looked over at Eli, he looked like his blood was about to boil, watching Lucas.

“We had a battle and the person who killed her, Tanner took care of. There was nothing anyone of us could do-,” My Aunt Marie explained, but Lucas didn’t look like he was having it, as he was about to push the knife into her stomach more.

Then Eli, pushed him away from her, making Lucas drop the knife. “You promised she wouldn’t be hurt!” Watching Eli come closer to Lucas, as Lucas crawl away from him, still facing each other. “You promised she wouldn’t be involved.”

Eli grabbed him by his jacket and pull him right up to his face, but I watched as Lucas pulled a gun from his jacket and pointed it at his chest.

“I didn’t promise shit, but here, let me kill you again.” Lucas smirked as he shot Eli, making him fall to the ground.

“NO!” My Aunt Marie screamed, crying as Lucas walked over and slapped her across the face.

“Shut up! You are the cause for all of this!” He pointed the gun towards my Aunt’s head as she cried.

“Don’t!” I yelled as Lucas looked back at me. “You have me, just please leave them alone. I’ll go with you.” He smirked after what I had said.

“Your right, all I really need is you.” He explained, untied my hands and chained them up instead, cutting the rope from my feet and doing the same.

“What are you doing? I said I was going to go with you.” I questioned as he dragged me out of the chair.

“You are gonna go with me, but if your anything like your mother, I ain’t gonna be tricked once again.” He smiled as he tied a blindfold around my eyes.
________________________________________________________________________________
Tanner’s P.O.V.
After hours of working out a plan, we were finally ready to tell the others, but once we left Dean’s hall, something was wrong. Elle was nowhere to be found, I ran to my sister’s hall, nothing. My heart dropped as I ran into Dean and Logan.

“Where are they?” Dean asked, as I gave him a look that made his heart drop as well, as we both turned to Athena’s hall and bolted to her cottage. As I opened the door, Marie and James were tied up in chairs, but a familiar face was lying on the floor.

“Untie them,” I said as I ran towards, Eli, something that I haven’t heard nor seen in many years. He was shot, bleeding on the floor, but as I took another look at the bullet, it looked wooden, not metal. I pulled it out and he groaned.

“One downfall of being a vampire,” He spoke as his eyes opened, Marie ran right over to him.

“Eli, are you okay?” She asked as I helped him sit up.

“I’m fine.” Eli looked over at me, “Before we can have a family reunion, you need to go after Lucas, he has Athena.”

My heart dropped again, it was like I just lost Jade all over again, now my daughter.

“Where is he taking her?” I demanded as he pulled out his phone and showed me a farmhouse that was just up the road from where we were.

“Go, but it won’t be for much longer. He knows that she can’t be out from this place for long. He took her necklace.” As he pointed over by the chairs, and on the floor was her necklace.

“I’m going after her,” Dean said as he was about to walk out of the cottage. I stopped him in his tracks.

“No, I’m the only one who can go after them. The only thing I want you and Logan to do is what we planned for.” I looked over at Logan as he was upset at the fact I wasn’t allowing him to go after Lucas with me. “You got that? We need to worry about Athena.”
___________________________________________________________
As I left the cottage, Dean gave me bags of guns and bullets. I strapped myself with a bulletproof vest, a few hunting nights, and grabbed Athena’s necklace and placed it in my pocket.

“Let me come with, Dad. Please.” Logan begged, but I shook my head no.

“Not a chance, bud. I have already lost your mother, the last thing I need to do is lose Athena and you.” I gave him a hug, “I made a promise to kill that man, and I’m not going to break my promise.”

I grabbed what was needed and left the Tree. I got into my truck, toss the back onto the passenger seat and started the engine. I looked down at my hand, playing with my wedding ring. I still didn’t want to believe that Jade was gone, but I needed her more than she knows.

Before I was able to put my truck in gear, the passenger door and Eli hopped inside. “Don’t protest, you need me.” As he slammed the door shut.

Unforgotten – Chapter 31

If you haven’t read Chapter 30, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/09/30/unforgotten-chapter-30/

Athena’s P.O.V.
As I looked around, I saw everyone partying, the house looked familiar as I walked around and noticed the photos on the walls. My heart dropped, they were my mother. I ran to find the nearest mirror. As I looked, I saw the vision of my mother, standing before me.

I must be dreaming. Something isn’t right.

“Jade, where are you?” I heard a female voice call as I left the bathroom, I bumped right into her. “There you are! We are about to go for a drive, you wanna come?” She asked as I wasn’t sure how to answer, but before I could, my body went after and spoke for me.

“No, I think I’m just gonna go in my room,” I said as she gave me a soft smile.

“Well, let me know if you change your mind.” She gave me a hug. “Love you, sis.” As she turned back into the living room, back to where the party was.
Sister? That must of been my aunt.

My body started moving towards a room, it was a pretty purple bedroom, as my head turned, I noticed the books that I couldn’t ever forget. My mother’s journals.

Before I can go to reach for them, a guy stopped me, shutting the bedroom door and smirking at me. “I’ve been wondering when I would get a chance to be alone with you.”
________________________________________________________________________________
I inhaled and sat right up, I kept breathing fast as I looked around my surroundings. I was in my cottage, I looked over and saw Dean next to me. “Thank god, your awake.” He gave me a hug. “I missed you so much.”

Missed me so much? How long was I out?

I hugged him back, his scent calmed me as I held on to him longer. I pulled away from his grasp and pulled his face into mine as I kissed his lips, wanting to make sure that I wasn’t still dreaming.

Once the kiss ended, I sighed in relief. Then I realized the one thing that worried me. Logan.

I scrambled to get up, but Dean stopped me from doing so. “Easy, what do you want to know?”

“Logan is the-” Dean interrupted me.

“Logan is fine, the real question is are you fine?” Dean asked as I was confused. I felt fine, but something changed about me. “You were out longer than Logan was, about a week.”
I was asleep for a week?

“I’m so confused, the last thing I remember is touching Logan and then drifting into a past memory of my mother,” I explained as I looked over to see my father standing in the doorway.

“Logan did, too. He was in James’ past memory.” He said, handing me a glass of water.

“Here, let me let the others know that you are awake.” Dean said as he kissed my forehead and left my room.
___________________________________________________________________________________
After I ate, showered and got dressed, I met up with everyone in the hall. My father ran out of Logan’s hall and towards us, holding his phone in hand. “It’s him.” He said, as I felt scared and unsure what his next move was going to be next.

“Hello, Athena and of course Logan.” His voice said as I trembled with fear. “I’m just letting you know that I know exactly where you are and I’m taking you both as well as your mother. I’ve waited too long for my family back.”

“I’ve already lost my wife, there is no way in hell you are taking my children,” Dad said as I could see the angry in his eyes, especially what he has done to mom and our aunt.

The line went silent as he hung up.

“I don’t care if I go to jail, but I’m killing him.” He said as he walked off. James looked over at Aunt Marie as she went after our father.

James looked at me and frowned. “I’m guessing you know the truth.” I nodded as he wrapped his arms around me. He pulled away and smiled. “I promise that you won’t go through the same thing your mother went through.”

Logan grabbed my hand and looked at me. “Come on, let’s talk.” He said, directing us towards his hall. He seemed different but calmer.

When we finally got into his hall, he sat down on one of the white porch chairs that were in front of his home. As I sat down, he faced the ocean, watching the waves back and forth along the beach.

“I now have a better understanding of James.” Logan looked over at me, holding out two bracelets in his hand, one pink and one blue. He handed me the pink bracelet. “James was headed over to the party and got into an accident. Lucas ran into him on purpose and made sure that he hit Mandy’s side.”

I held his hand, but he pulled away from my grasp. “You don’t understand, Athena, he wasn’t in love with Mom, but with her sister. They were together behind Lucas’ back and when he caught them, he decided that if he couldn’t have Mandy to himself, he would replace her with our mother.”

“That doesn’t make any sense, James and her told each other everything, he would’ve told her,” I said, can’t believe any of this.

“Mom loved James and he knew that if he were to choose her sister over her, she would never forgive him. Not to mention, James had enough shit going on at home, his father was beating him. Especially that night.” He explained as it didn’t make sense.

I stayed silent as I looked over the bracelet, there was a golden M charm that hung from it. “Where did you get these?”

“James had them. He wanted me to show you,” As he handed me the other bracelet where a gold ‘J’ charm hung from that one. “He bought them almost a year before Mandy died.” It made me think about what my aunt would’ve been like if she was still alive, but she wasn’t.

Looking back that the bracelets, I was tired of this problem, people getting killed and the ones they love is gone because of jealous. I wanted to change the problem that one person has been causing since before I was even born. He was going to pay.

Unforgotten – Chapter 30

If you haven’t read Chapter 29, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/09/02/unforgotten-chapter-29/

Athena’s P.O.V.
Dean held my hand as we watched our father come back into to hall. It had been a few days since he left. Both Logan and I were worried thinking something had happened to him. As soon as he walked in, I let go of Dean’s hand and ran to hug my father.

“I’m fine, you don’t have to worry.” Our father said as Logan looked up at him.

“We won’t ever stop worrying, dad,” Logan said as he came over and our father hugged us both. I watched as Logan pulled away and glared at my father. I knew he was going to start questioning our father. “Did you know what your sister did?”

I watched as I let go of my father and looked into his eyes. I turned to look and saw our Aunt Marie coming closer to us with James at her side. “The only thing I knew was that she bailed Lucas out. Your mother, her and I came out with a plan to get him back in jail.”

Our Aunt Marie came to hug our father. “He didn’t know anything about my plan. He found out when you did.” She turned to us, as I looked over at my brother, he still wasn’t happy at all. “Logan, I’m so sorry. I wasn’t thinking straight back then because I never found someone to love.”

“But yet you did. Not to mention that this rapist is now after my sister because she looks like our mother. Everything you have done has made our lives even more in danger!”

Logan yelled as tears started to fall down our Aunt’s face.

I father stepped in and James quickly came to our Aunt’s side. “I know what she did is unforgivable, but you need to understand that what’s in the past, is in the past. Sometimes we do stuff without even thinking about it.”

Logan crossed his arms and rolled his eyes before Logan could say anything, I interrupted him. “Logan, please, let’s not make this worst than it needs to be. He’s only after one thing. Me.” I spoke as Dean held my hand once more. “Now, let’s just relax and we will figure out a plan.”

I started to walk back to my hall, as I left go of Dean’s hand.
“Athena?” Dean spoke as I ignored him as my mind kept spinning. I wanted to be alone, but at the same time, Dean won’t let me be alone.

“You are gonna have to talk to me. I’m not leaving any time soon.” Dean said again as I walked into my cottage and slammed the door shut. I sat in my chair, as I watched the door fling open. “You aren’t gonna shut me out, Athena.

Dean stood in front of me as I just stared away from him. He leaned in, pulling his face right in front of mine. “I’m not going anywhere unless you tell me to.” He spoke and then leaned in to kiss my cheek. He started to place kisses all over my face, I could help by smile.

“You make it so hard to be alone.” I spoke, as he smirked.

“Well, you aren’t alone. I’m always gonna be here for you and whether you like it or not, you are gonna tell me what’s going on.”

“It’s just hard for me to understand why this guy would want me.” I said. “I read my mother’s journal’s and she talked about what he did to her and her sister.”

“Your mom had a sister?” Dean asked. He looked as confused as I did.

“I guess so, but she died in a car crash. Lucas was her boyfriend at the time. He took advantage of her on the night her sister was killed. It didn’t make sense of why she was so overprotective of us.” I paused. “I’m just afraid that the same thing that happened to my mother will happen to me.”

Dean grabbed me and pulled me into his chest. “Don’t think like that. Nothing will happen to you, I promise.”

“Quick! Something is going on with Logan!” We heard Roxi yell as she slammed the door open. Dean looked at me as I rushed out the door, running after Roxi, as we saw him laying on the ground.

His body was stiff as a board and his eyes were open, but they were completely white. There was a weird glow around him. I got on my knees next to him and grabbed his hand.

“No, Athena don’t!” I heard my Aunt Marie said as I felt a complete shock throughout my body. Everything went completely back.
_________________________________________________________________________________________
Dean’s P.O.V.
“What the hell is this!” I said as I was about to touch Athena’s hand. Marie pulled my wrist away.

“Don’t touch them! They are in a vision and if you all are under, it can slowly kill you!” Marie explained as Elle came rushing with some time of pot. “We have to hurry and put this oil over our hands, it will make sure that we don’t get trapped in their vision.”
Roxi and I dipped our hands into the oil as we were told. I was more worried what would we need to do next.

“What’s next?” I asked as Marie, James, and Elle did the same.

“At the same time, we need to all touch their hearts.” We all got in position, I looked up at Marie and waited. “One, two, three!” We all placed our hands on their chest and it all stopped.

Their eyes shut, the glow around them was gone, I placed my head near Athena’s heart as I listened to her beating heart, I felt relief as I could hear it beating. I was afraid that I had lost her. I kissed her forehead, thinking she would wake up, but nothing.

“Why aren’t they waking up?” Roxi asked as she kissed Logan on the lips.

“They need time to recover, we put them in a deep sleep. Let them rest and we will have to wait and see.” Marie said as I picked up Athena and walked her back to her cottage, placing her softly on her bed.

I sat in the chair that I pulled next to the bed and held her hand. “I’m not going anywhere, Athena.” As I kissed her hand.

Unforgotten – Chapter 29

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/08/26/unforgotten-chapter-28/

Athena’s P.O.V.
“We need you both, something has come up.” My brother walked in as Dean and I cuddling in his bed. “I’m sorry, but it’s important.”

I got up from the bed and grabbed my shoes. I started to worry as I looked at Logan. “Please tell me dad is okay.”

He nodded as he looked back at me. “He’s fine, just hurry up, Aunt Marie and James are waiting for us.” I nodded as Logan left the room. I looked over at Dean, who pulled me into a hug.

“Don’t worry, it’s nothing we can’t handle, I’m sure.” Dean said as he planted a kiss on my forehead.
_________________________________________________________________
“I’m so sorry, I wasn’t thinking straight when I bailed him out.” My Aunt Marie said as she looked at Logan and I. I didn’t understand why she would do such as thing, but when I looked over at Logan, he was furious.

“Sorry? As if we haven’t been through enough!” Logan shouted as he got up from the meeting table, pacing back and forth. “Why can things just be normal for once for us?!”

Logan stormed out, I was about to get up and follow him, but Roxi touched my hand. “I got him.” As she rushed out to follow Logan.

I looked back over at my Aunt Marie, she had such a worried look on her face. “Why did you really do it?” I asked as she sat back down.

“I didn’t want your mother to be with your mother. He was all I had since our parents walked out of our lives when we were young. I didn’t want to be alone and I wasn’t thinking straight.” She paused and grabbed my hand. “I never knew Lucas wanted to take your guys, I locked him up and he ended up escaping.”

I looked back at Dean as James came over and showed us the pictures that Lucas did to our rooms. As I was looking at my room, the words that were spray-painted over gave me a pit in my stomach. “Who does he want? Logan and I?”

Looking up from the pictures, my Aunt Marie started crying. “He told me something when he was in jail, it didn’t make sense until now, but he told me he only wanted the one that can give me her.” I froze. “He wants you more than anything, you look just like your mother and he will do anything to get you.”

Dean held my hand as I just froze. I felt like I couldn’t move. What my Aunt said, made me scared for my life. I just didn’t know what I was gonna do. My thoughts kept rushing through my head. How can we stop him? How can we keep everyone safe? What does he have planned for me?

“Athena, I will make sure that nothing happens to you or your brother,” James spoke as he looked into my eyes. “I watched what happened to your mother when he was around, I’m not going to let the same thing happen to you.”

I looked over at Dean, as he had gotten up and left the room. James grabbed my wrist to face him. “This is a lot of information for him. Give him some time to dissolve it.” I nodded as I walked away and headed towards my brother’s hall.
_________________________________________________________________
“This is all of her fault!” I heard Logan scream. “She made this choice and everything she has done has put Athena and I in more danger than we need to be!” I kept walking to see my brother on his deck pacing back and forth.

Roxi was with him, keeping her distance, “Logan! Sometimes people don’t think when they’re in pain! Your Aunt did the best she could and I know that it’s not something you want to hear, but you should hear her out.” Roxi said as I got closer.

“He’s coming back for us because we look like our mother! He wants to have a perfect family with us because we are her children!” Logan said as he turned around and looked at me.

“He’s not coming for you, Logan.” I said, walking onto the deck and facing him. “It’s me he really wants.” I said as he shook his head no.

I felt my eyes water, as he threw his hands into his hair. “No, no! Athena, we aren’t going to let him take you. I’ve already lost too many people and I’m not going to lose my sister.” Logan pulled me into a hug.

He knew exactly what Lucas wanted to do with me. My stomach turned just thinking about it. I would be his next slave.

Unforgotten – Chapter 26

If you haven’t read Chapter 25, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/07/29/unforgotten-chapter-25/

Logan’s P.O.V.
We heard a terrible scream, immediately, Athena and I ran to the entrance and saw our father, holding our mother in a pool of blood. He was sobbing and rocking her lifeless both back and forth. I dropped to my knees, I could feel the tears pouring out from my eyes.

Athena rushed over to my mother and my father looked into her eyes and over at mine. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t see it happen.” He spoke as Athena tried to move our father’s grip from holding our mother.

“I can save her, let us save her daddy!” Athena screamed. I felt someone’s arms wrapped around my neck as I cried more.

“Athena, it’s too late,” Lewy said as she stopped what she was doing and Dean pulled her into his arms. I watched as her head buried into his chest, I could hear her crying.

I pulled Roxi into my arms and held her tightly. She pulled away to look into my eyes and very softly touched my cheek. “What can I do for you?” She whispered as I just held her, crying.

Even though my mother was a pain in the ass, she never should’ve died this way.

Something enraged me that someone would be such a coward to kill our mother and leave. Something in me clicked and I let go of Roxi and started walking towards the field.

“Easy, don’t go out there until we have a plan.” Colin stopped me as I kept on going.

“Logan, dear. You need to come back!” I heard Elle say, which stopped me dead in my tracks. I turned to look at her. “Please.” I slowly looked back at the field, waiting for anyone to come out of the shadows and face me.
__________________________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.
“Oh my god, what happened to her?!” I said as I saw my brother bringing his lifeless wife and laying her on the floor. I got on my knees and looked at her, I tried to use my magic to help her, but it was too late. “What killed her?”

I asked my brother, but he stayed on his knees, silent. He just stood there looking at Jade’s face. Lewy and Colin came over. “With this.” Colin said as he handled me the sword. This wasn’t just any normal sword. This one was laced with deathly poison that can’t be undone with magic.

I handed the sword to Elle. “Make sure no one touches that. It’s laced.” James, came to my side as he got done on his knees, sobbing over his dead best friend.

I held him in my arms as he looked at me. “What do we need to do?” He asked, as I looked up to Elle, Lewy, and Colin. We all knew what this means, the war has started.

I stood up and looked over at my niece and nephew. I could feel it in their souls that they were heartbroken and wanted revenge. “The war has been started. Dean, Roxi, Athena, and Logan, we need to cast the protection spell, as I will be in here. James will go out to the battlefield with you all, I’ll keep the protection spell up.”

“You aren’t staying her alone,” James said as I nodded.

“Don’t worry, we are leaving her with a few of our kinds, not to mention she will have Elle with her,” Lewy spoke, as James nodded.

“Lewy and Colin will be outside with you all. Make sure your kinds know that it is happening now and get them ready.” I said I looked over at my niece and nephew. “I know that you want to mourn the loss of your mother, but we need to make sure that this kind doesn’t make anyone else lose their mothers. Take that rage and use it for the battlefield.” They both nodded as they headed to their halls to change.

I got down next to my brother. “I’m so sorry that this has happened to you, but your children will make sure that whoever did this, will be stopped.” He didn’t say anything, just wrapped his arms around me. “I love you.”

“I love you, too, but I’m going out there with them,” Tanner said as he stood up and walked over to Lewy. “Change me.” Lewy looked over at me.

“Are you sure you want me to do this? Once you are changed, you’ll be at your strongest, however, if they get ahold of you, they can turn you into one of them. You’ll lose not just your family, but everything.”

I grabbed my brother’s arm. “Think of your kids, Tanner. They don’t need to lose both their mother and their father.”

“Fine, but I’m going out there. I’m not leaving their side.” Tanner said as he looked over at Elle. “Suit me up, I’m gonna kill whoever it was that killed my wife.”
__________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
I quickly changed into my ritual outfit and headed to the room, but before I could leave my hall, Lewy was standing there. “You need to make a choice. This will affect everyone, Athena.” Lewy spoke as he came out of the shadows.

I looked at him, but I was still unsure about it, but in my mind, I just wanted to find out who killed my mother. “Do it. Wipe Ricky from my memories, please. I need a clear head.” I said as Lewy nodded and looked into my eyes.

I could see him going back to when I first met him, he had just turned 4 and I was just born.

Next one was when I was I first knew I was in love with him. He took me to his prom. He snuck Logan and I in, we danced to one song, that I always called it our song. Unconditionally by Katy Perry, we were dancing together and as I looked into his eyes, I knew that he felt it too.

The last one was when I found out he was stilled alive. I had hope that he would be completely fine and that I was gonna do something to change him, but because what happened to him, he wouldn’t be able to change.

All of those were wiped. I blinked my eyes and looked up at Lewy, I was a little confused why Lewy was standing in front of me. “Excuse me, I need to go.”

As I left my hall, I saw Dean and my heart fluttered. I gave him a long passionate kiss. As I pulled away from him. “I just needed to do that before we go into battle,” I said as he smiled.

“Don’t you worry, we have this. I’ll be by your side, always and forever.” Dean said placing a kiss on my forehead.

Unforgotten – Chapter 24

If you haven’t read Chapter 23, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/07/15/unforgotten-chapter-23/

Logan’s P.O.V.
We have been training and practicing for about a week or so. Haven’t heard anything from the hybrids, but the vampires and werewolves’ packs and clans have already started to come to the base. Lewy and Colin have been working together well, which I was kind of shocked about.

Athena hasn’t taken the deal from Lewy, I was really hoping for her to take the deal by now. With the war about to happen, she has to do it or she will all put us in doom. I shiver at being reminded what Lewy showed me.

I can’t get it out of my head, it won’t leave my mind of what they would do all of us. I haven’t been able to go to sleep without waking up screaming. I haven’t told Roxi what is going on, but she worries about me having these nightmares.

She and I have gotten closer lately. I have been around here more than I have my parents and Athena. I look over at her, sleeping next to me, watching her chest go up and down, her hair scattered around her side of the bed. I couldn’t help, but smile.

I got up, slowly leaving my spot on the mattress, and headed towards my kitchen, as I was about to grab something to drink, I spotted Dean, just sitting out on my porch swing, smoking. I walked out my front door, as his eyes laid on me.

“What are you doing up so early?” I asked, sitting next to him. He handed me the joint he was smoking off of before he answered me.

“I wanted to talk to you.” He said, looking me straight in the eye. “Is it true? The vision?” I gave him a strange look, how did he know about that? I took a hit off of the joint, staying quiet.

“Lewy showed me the vision,” Dean spoke again as I nodded. “So, it’s true? She could all doom us, huh?”

I passed the joint back to him. “From what Lewy showed us, yeah, it could happen.” I paused for a moment before he could reply back. “You got to understand that Ricky has been in our lives since the day we were born. We grew up as siblings, but Athena and he didn’t get together until all of this shit started happening.”

He stood up and looked down at me. “Lewy mentioned he could erase her memory of him. He told me a second memory but didn’t tell me what was it. He mentioned that you had already done so with Roxi.” He paused, looking over as the waves crashed upon the shore. “You did it with her, didn’t you?”

I watched as he turned to face me, I was waiting for him to punch me in the face, but he didn’t. “Look, I really like her, there is a connection between us and she’s like the girl of my dreams. I’m sorry if that-”

“Don’t worry about it, I get it. I feel the same way with your sister.” He then leaned his body against the wooden bracket. “So, that’s how she will forget him.”

I shrugged. “I guess so, but I tried to get Lewy to convince her to have her mind wiped of him. The only difference is that if you bond with her, she’ll remember him, but her feelings for him won’t matter because she has you.” I stood up and headed towards the front door. “Do what you have to do, the sooner she forgets, one less thing we have to stress on.”

As I opened the door, Dean walked off my porch and headed out of my hall. I closed the door and held my head against the wall. I felt warm arms wrap against my torso. “I was looking for you.” I heard Roxi whispered into my ear. “Was that my brother you were talking to?” As I turned around, facing her, holding her hands in mind.

“It was nothing, just guy stuff.” I smiled, pushing back some of her hair behind her ear.

“Come on, let’s get back to bed and cuddle before we have to get up and train.”

She smiled as I lightly brushed her lips against mine, scooping her up in my arms and walking into my bedroom with her.
____________________________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.

“I can’t believe you are putting our children at risk like this! Our children should be in school learning and preparing for what they want to do in life, not this crap!” Jade yelled as I rubbed my forehead. She has been complaining about this for the past few days and I’ve had enough.

I looked over at my brother, hoping he would say something that would change her mind or at least shut her up. “Jade, I know this isn’t what we had hoped for our kids future, but there was nothing that couldn’t have stopped this.” He paused, rubbing her shoulders.

“Think of it as they are saving the world.”
Jade pulled away from Tanner and turned back on me. “This is all YOUR fault! I wish you were still out of our lives!”

All of a sudden, something in me didn’t feel right. Some odor hit my nose and my stomach didn’t agree with it. I ran to the nearest trash can and puked. I felt someone rubbing my back, when I looked up, it was James. “You feeling alright?”

I saw Elle approach the main hall with the look that I was afraid of. “May I have a word with you, James and Marie?” Elle asked as James helped me up. We followed Elle to our dorm, I could still hear Jade bitching about all this bullshit.

Elle closed the door behind me and held my hands. “My dear, do you know you are with child?” She smiled. I felt a flutter in my stomach as I didn’t think this could’ve ever happened to me.

“Wait, what? I’m so confused.” James said, then turned to me, giving me a look. His eyes were watering. “Are you really pregnant?”

I turned to look at Elle and smiled. Looking down at my stomach and then looking back into James’ eyes, I smiled. “Yes, I believe so.” James started to cry and got down on his knees, hugging my stomach. He started placing kisses all over my stomach.

“I’m so happy for you, Marie. This probably wasn’t the best timing, but this might make them strike for you first.” Elle explained, she wasn’t wrong, hybrids would destroy anyone caring our kind, especial a special child, such as the one that I’m growing.

James looked over at Elle and walked over to her. “What can we do? I’ll do anything to protect her.” I could see the fear in his face.

Elle held his hand and smiled. “Don’t you worry, we will talk to everyone about this and figure out our next step. Have hope, my dear.”
________________________________________________________________________________
Dean’s P.O.V.
After I left Logan’s hall, I went to find Athena, as I couldn’t find her in her own hall, I headed down my own, entering my castle-like home, I found her, lying asleep on my bed. I laid down on the bed aside her.

Her eyes fluttered open and smiled when she saw me. “Morning Beautiful. I thought we were sleeping at your place?” I questioned as I motioned her to lay on my chest.

“My parents were fighting and I got tired of them screaming. I told them to go bother Logan, but my mother stormed off. I figured if I came here, I would at least get a little peace of sleep.” She moved over and looked at me. “I was wondering where you went off to?”

“I was just talking to Elle about the protection spell, again.” I lied. “Just want to make sure I understood it, that’s all.” I didn’t want to tell her I had talked to Lewy and then went to see her brother after. She doesn’t need to know, not right now.

“We will all be great at it.” She laid on my chest. “I don’t want to get up, yet,” I smirked, placing a kiss on her forehead.

“You know what? Let’s do something tonight, just you and me. What do you say?” I asked she leaned her head up to look at me, a smile appeared on her face.

“Are you asking me on a date?” As I watched her cheeks get bright red from blushing. I nodded as her smile grew bigger. “Of course. What do you have planned?” She asked as I looked at my ceiling.

“You’ll see,” I said as we cuddled for a little bit longer, as I thought of what I would plan for our first date in my head.

Unforgotten – Chapter 23

If you haven’t read Chapter 22, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/07/08/unforgotten-chapter-22/

Athena’s P.O.V.
Lewy tugged me behind the water fountain, hoping that no one was looking. I was frightened at the fact that he might do something to me, but a voice I heard in my head calmed me:

Don’t worry, Athena. I just want to talk.

I realized that it was him talking, I started to calm down, although, I didn’t know what he wanted to talk to me about.

“You loved him, isn’t it?” Lewy asked I was confused who he was talking about. “Ricky, right?” I nodded as I tried to ignore the memories that my brain wanted to keep flowing in my brain.

“Why?” I looked into his eyes and asked.

“Well, I’m a very rare and powerful old vampire. I can see the future for center people, only those who have a heart of pure good. Lately, ever since I’ve seen you around here, I’ve seen your future and what will happen, if you don’t get rid of him in your heart.” Lewy held my hand and smiled. “You see my dear, Ricky cannot be changed back. Whatever happened to him, he will never return back to his old self.”

I felt tears falling down my cheeks. I will admit, I had hope for him. Hope that I would be able to help him and bring him back to the person he was supposed to be. I didn’t know how well I trusted this vampire, but the words he spoke, made him sound like he was telling the truth.

“I-I can help him.”

“Darling, if you could help him, I wouldn’t be standing here talking to you about it.” He pulled away from my hands and smiled. “You do have such a pure heart that you’ll do anything to save him. Sadly, there is nothing you can about it, I’m afraid. Since he so in love with you, that he is going to be coming for you.”

“Coming for me? Why?” I crossed my arms, waiting for what Lewy had to say.

“You are his on true love. Between you and you’re brother, he will try and convince you first about ending this war. Logan is too hard-headed that even Ricky knows it isn’t worth it to ask him.” Lewy said, looking around the corner to see if anyone else was looking. “I don’t have much time, but I’m giving you a choice.”

I was puzzled, a choice for what? Looking back at Lewy, staring into his eyes, he started to speak again.

“I can make you forget who he is, in your mind. You won’t remember what he looks like or any memories you had together with him. I suggest that you take some time to think it over, but we don’t have much of it.”

“Would it hurt me?” I questioned as I wanted to know if it would effect me differently.

“All I would be doing is taking you’re memories or thoughts that you ever had of him.” He then hugged me, leaning his head closer to my ear. “If I were you, I would highly consider it. Unless you think you are strong enough to endure saying no.”

I nodded, and just like that, Lewy was gone. I looked around, but he had disappeared so quickly.

He was right, but I didn’t want him to alter my mind. Although, if it made sure that we would win the battle, keeping the peace with everyone, I would do it.

I started walking towards my hall, just letting my mind wonder and think about it. I needed to really sleep on it.
________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
As I kept pacing, back and forth, waiting for Lewy to come back after talking with my sister. I was scared to find out if she didn’t take his offer. He had come in and told me what would exactly happen on the battlefield, Athena would want to do everything to save him, if she did, we would all be dead, or worse, slaves.

I shook my head, trying to get the vision that Lewy showed me what would happen if we were to take that road. I couldn’t risk it. I looked over and saw Lewy coming towards me. He had a smirk on his mouth as he stood in front of me.

“She’s considering it, but I believe she will let me wipe him from her mind,” Lewy said, giving me some sort of relief. Knowing my sister, and how close she is with Dean, I didn’t want to tell him what was going on, knowing that he would go ahead and alert my sister of what I was wanting her to do.

“Let’s hope that her mind doesn’t change. She has been in love with him since we were in middle school.” I threw my hands into my hair, looking back over to Lewy. “You sure she’ll do it?”

“At this moment, she is thinking about it.” He said, placing his hands behind his back, looking out over to the sunset as the waves crashed against the sand. “You know, I might not have to wipe her memory of Ricky. Dean and she are pretty close, I’m surprised that they haven’t done what you have Roxi have.”

I looked over at him, feeling my cheeks burning, just from him saying that. I didn’t want to think that Dean was, you know, doing it with my sister. Then again, I had already done that with Roxi. Just thinking about it made me want to go back to her hall and toss her onto the bed.

Lewy smirked, probably listening to what I was thinking, for sure. “Bonding is the only other thing that she could do to forget about him.” He looked back at me, staring at me with his blood red eyes. “I’ll let you know if she wants me to wipe her memory. Goodnight.” Lewy bowed and then left my hall.

I looked over at the waves and hoped that this war wouldn’t be as messy as Lewy showed me it would be.

Unforgotten – Chapter 18

If you haven’t read Chapter 17, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/05/13/unforgotten-chapter-17/

Athena’s P.O.V.
As we all stood around in our elemental spots, Elle was handing us all a candle. Our Aunt Marie and James stood in the middle. As Elle approached me, she told me that I would be starting the ritual again.

“I’ll repeat what you have to say if you need me too.” She told me, handing me a green candle as I gave her a smile. I felt comfortable doing it by myself, but I needed to know what I had to say, especially since we are doing the ritual to change vampire back to humans.

“Is everything the same as the last ritual we did?” I asked as she nodded.

“The only thing that will be different, is that after we summon all the elements into the circle, you need to say one more thing before it is complete. I’ve already given James and Marie the potion. We are ready when you are.” Elle smiled as she headed over Roxi, handing her candle.

Each of us lit our candles. Dean smirked as I gazed over at him. I gave him a smiled and then took a deep breath to relax me. I was so nervous that something would go wrong. I closed my eyes and chanted: ‘Ego autem in terra circulus receperint.’

I opened them to see my flame get brighter. I carefully placed my candle on top of my stone, that glowed green. Slowly, I walked towards Roxi, as she gave me a smile, but I knew she was nervous as I. I closed my eyes once more and chanted: ‘Nunc receperint Aeris circulus.’

I opened them and saw her flame get brighter, as did the stone she stood on. I looked over to Elle as she nodded with approval. I then headed over to Dean. I noticed a smile appeared on his face, as I approached.

Standing in front of him, once again, I closed my eyes and chanted: ‘Nunc receperint pinguibus ignis Adfixus circulus.’

His flame grew brighter, as I slowly walked away towards my brother. He looked nervous, but seeing how I was, he relaxed his shoulders. Closing my eyes, I chanted: ‘Nunc receperint aqua circulus.’

I smiled how my brother flame got brighter. I headed towards the center of the circle where James and Aunt Marie were standing. I lifted the candle and stood in front of them. My Aunt Marie gave me a soft smile before I closed my eyes and chanted: ‘Nunc receperint Spiritus circulus.’

All of the elements started to glow as the ritual was almost completed. I looked over at Elle, as she had a smile on her face. “Now, Marie and James, you will need to stand looking at each other, holding the purple candle. Once Athena is back on her stone holding her candle, you will all chant ‘Beati eritis. Reduc eos maledictio data apou.'”

I nodded as I handed the candle over to my Aunt and James. The stood facing each other as I headed back to my candle. Once I was there, I closed my eyes and we all chanted: ‘Beati eritis. Reduc eos maledictio data apou.’, three times.

Opening my eyes, I saw everyone’s candles were out, but the Spiritual candle wasn’t. The Spiritual stone was also the only stone that was glowing. We all stood there amazed. I didn’t understand if we did it or not, but Elle seemed excited.

“Well, are we human or not?” James asked as Elle came towards him and smiled. I looked over and saw my Aunt Marie smiling and started to cry some tears.

“Well, you aren’t just human now, you are both the new Spiritual Element Leaders we have been waiting for.” Elle said as she blew out the candle and smiled at them both. She looked at James and smirked. “I knew there was something about you that was special, young man, but I never thought in a million years that we would see this happen in a ritual!”

I smiled as Dean came over and hugged me. His scent wrapped around me wanted me to kiss him, but I returned the smile. He leaned closer to my ear and whispered, “Come with me, I want to show you something.” I looked up and nodded.

Roxi and Logan kept talking as Elle was taking care of the candles and explaining to James everything that we had already heard. Dean and I snuck out, him holding my hand, as we laughed. I had no idea what he wanted to show me, but I was curious to know.

No one was in the main hall, but we headed toward the Fire Hall, which I have never been. The longer we walked down the hall, the hotter it got. Once we entered, it we were walking on a stone bridge, he held my hand as we crossed it.

I looked up to see a stone-like castle, covered in vines that climbed the walls. We started walking up the steps as he let go of my hand to open the old wooden door. My eyes were amazed at how incredible the castle was.

“Coming?” Dean asked as I looked back at him, still amazed with his home. I have always loved castles and fairy tails, but this was in-between an evil castle and a kings castle. As I entered into it, we were in a throne type room, with two staircases that were on each side of his elemental throne chair.

Dean grabbed my hand, as we headed up towards the stairs. As we went through the hall, there were 3 rooms. The one of the left, was a library, the one on the right was an extra room, and the only in the middle had another giant wooden doorway. Entering inside of it, there was a master bedroom.

It wasn’t as messy as I thought it would be. I always thought there would be his clothes everywhere or the bed wasn’t made, but it was spotless. I was shocked. “I never expected your room to be so clean.” I said as he chuckled, laying on his bed.

“You think I was a slob?” He joked as I laughed.

“Well, a little, but I’m kinda jealous,” I said, laying down with him on the bed. “I wished I was more organized like you.” I looked over at him and held my head up by my arm.

“Maybe I’ll surprise you some time and do it randomly someday for you.” He smiled as I leaned over and kissed his cheek.

“I’d like that.” I replied, as he leaned into my face and placed a soft kiss on my lips. It was gentle but soft. When he pulled away, I was sad, knowing that I wanted more from him.

“So, what was it that you wanted to show me?”

“This, my hall. I’ve always liked your hall better since there is more to do than in here.” He spoke as he stood up and walked over to the balcony, looking over at a warm red colored water that was flowing down some rocks below.

I followed him, looking over at the view as well. “So, do you have any duties?”

“Yeah, but I usually don’t have to do them, unless Elle tells me too or I’m angry and want something I can put my angry out.” He paused and looked over at me. “I make weapons, tools, and mine a bit, but I rather be spending it with you.”

I felt my cheeks blush. I didn’t know what to say, other than I didn’t want to make any promises to him that I couldn’t keep. Ricky was still alive, but I have felt that I have mourned him. Dean, on the other hand, is something that could be very dangerous for me to act on.

I gave him a friendly smile. “I’ve got to go. I want to see my parents for a little bit. Thank you for showing me your hall. I love the old fashion style it has to it.” I then left his castle and headed back to the main hall.
