Finally Free – Friday’s Short Stories

Finally Free

Hey Dearies! So, this one is another short story based on an idea or prompt! This one inspired me or gave me the idea from Safe Haven, but with a different twist to it. This one has mentions of abuse, so if you are triggered by that, please don’t read! 

What would freedom really be for those who are trapped?

Hailey didn’t know what freedom was until she got dropped off at the docks of Hawaii. She had finally left the pain and hurt that had been damaging her for years. She never thought that she would have to be on the run, but she figured being in Hawaii would give herself and her ex more distance between each other.

She looked around in amaze as she took a deep breath of her new surroundings. Picking up her bag pack that only held a few essentials that he grabbed in rush from leaving Kevin. She shook her head as she wandered around the street, she was amazed at the beautiful view of the ocean.

Hailey had always wanted to come to Hawaii, but after high school, her plans completely changed. They had especially changed since she met Kevin. The worse regret of her life. If she would’ve known what he would’ve been like before she had got with him, she would’ve run for her life.

Now she is running for her life.

Discouraging the thought of Kevin, something caught her eyes, as she watched him walk by. He looked familiar to her and it took her only a second to realize it was him, the real reason why she ran to Hawaii, all because of Ethan Brooks.

Her heart started to beat faster as he gazed into her eyes and stopping right in front of her.

“Hailey? Is that really you?” Her heart dropped, he still remembers her. Especially, since it’s been almost 3 years since she last saw him.

She was silent, a tear had fallen from her cheek, as she didn’t expect to cry in front of him. Instead of walking away from him, Ethan embraced her in his arms, holding her tightly. It made her feel safe and at home.

They stood there for a few minutes before Ethan pulled away from his embrace and took another look at her. Even though was in Hawaii, Hailey didn’t dress like she was comfortable. Wearing jeans and a tank top with a sweater covering her arms and zipped up to her neck.

Ethan noticed the bruise that slowly healing on her neck. Once he noticed that, he noticed other bruises of hers that were now more noticeable. “Walk with me, my beach house isn’t that far from here.” He grabbed her hand and took her bag of hers, throwing it over her shoulder, as he led to his beach house that was down the street from the boardwalk.

As soon as they got into Ethan’s beach house, Hailey was shocked at the place that she was in. She never knew that Ethan was rich, but he sure lived like it. She then took a view of the balcony that showed over the ocean, waves crashing onto the beach. It was heaven to her.

“Why didn’t you meet up with me that night?” Ethan spoke, he wasn’t going to catch up with her once he saw her bruises. Hailey beats herself up over not leaving to go with Ethan. She had met him in a nightclub, it was right after she 21, she went out with her friends to celebrate.

Hailey was talking to Kevin, but she was single when she met Ethan. When they danced, they clicked just like that and she followed him home where they had an amazing time. He told her he was leaving to go back to Hawaii and he wanted to take her with him, but before she could, she tried to explain it to Kevin, but it ended badly.

Hailey didn’t want to think about it, but she had to give Ethan an answer. “It’s harder for me to explain.” She spoke, turning to face him, tears fell from her eyes. “You don’t want to know what he did to me.”

Ethan, hugged her again, she hugged him back as she tried to maintain her crying, but it came out like waterfalls. “I’m sorry. I wanted to. I was ready to go and then he found out-”

“You don’t need to explain. You’re here with me now, aren’t you?” Ethan smiled, wiping her tears away as she gave him a smile in return. “Feel free to stay with me. I’m gonna make you something to eat, why don’t you go take a shower.”

Haily nodded as Ethan showed her the bathroom, giving her a set of sweat pants and shirt, then handing her a towel before walking out into the kitchen.

Hailey shut them down and started to strip out of her old clothes and looked at her naked self in the mirror, the black and blue bruises that were up and down on her body. She turned and looked at the deep scar that planted down her back, that hadn’t started to heal.

That scar was what gave her strength to leave Kevin.

After her shower, she got dressed in the clothes Ethan gave her and then headed into the kitchen, he was just finishing up cooking burgers. Her stomach growled, she hadn’t had anything since she left California except a cereal bar.

They ate together in silence. As Hailey was washing the dirty dishes, Ethan noticed the scar on her back, he was shocked at how bad the situation she was in. He turned her around, which scared her, she gazed into his eyes.

Ethan leaned his forehead against hers and studied her eyes, kissing her forehead. “I promise I won’t let anything bad happen to you. Stay with me.” He promised as Hailey was in shock, but it felt so right. She then nodded and then went to kiss his cheek, but Ethan turned his head, having her miss his cheek and plant a kiss onto his lips instead.

They kissed for a second, Hailey’s heart fluttered as she missed his kiss. Ethan pulled her closer and held her close, as they both had missed each other, more than they had known. In his arms, it was like wrapping yourself in a heavy blanket.

In the next few days, Ethan and Hailey caught up on what they missed in each other lives. The more time they spent together, they ended up growing closer to where they before. Hailey started to see a better version of herself in his arms, but having Ethan around made her forget all the pain and hurt that Kevin had ever put her in.

She was finally free from it all. The best part is that she was finally happier, stronger, and more empowered about her life choices. She was a bird that was finally free to fly where ever she wanted to go.

Book Review – Ever After (Laurel-Leaf Books)

Hey Dearies! Back with another book review for you all! So, this one I never thought this was really a book, but it is and you can find it on Amazon.

Ever After is a motion picture that Drew Barrymore stars in as the main character, Danielle. This movie is one of my all-time favorite version of a Cinderella story, next to Hillary Duffs more modern version in A Cinderella Story.

The ‘Cinderella’ story has been told in many different ways in, by different writers and in different genres. In my opinion, ‘Cinderella’s story is one of the easiest recreations that any writer can do, but I’m always curious to see what writers come up with and try to do.

The same goes for any other fairy tale story, but I think this version is the best because not only is it in the perfect timeline and location to do it.

The theme of where this Cinderella story is set more like how the original Cinderella story started. Danielle lives with her father, her more died in childbirth and her father raises her the best he can. Of course, when she is 8, he re-marries Baroness Rodmilla of Ghent, otherwise known as her evil stepmother, and has two daughters of her own.

However, the reason why Rodmilla marries Danielle’s father is to get further up the line, or into the castle, basically wanting to live the life of riches. So, she really doesn’t care about Danielle, anyway, makes Danielle a ‘slave’ when her father dies.

I will say, Danielle puts up with a bunch of crap as a servant, but how she meets Prince Henry is even funnier than how the other versions. She ends up meeting him and throws apples at him thinking that he is stealing their horse.

The entire book is an exact play-by-play of the movie, which made me feel like I was just reading the movie and I ended up finishing it in a day. So, instead of watching the movie, you can read it, however, depending on how fast you read, it could take a day, perfect for passing the time.

There are only a few slight things that weren’t in the movie, but even if it wasn’t, it doesn’t change the way the book is, instead, I feel like it gives more of a backstory to some of the parts that are ‘rushed’ when created into a movie, or they were parts that they didn’t put into the movie.

Overall, this is an amazing book, even though it is literally the movie script, but in a book form and since I don’t own the movie, it’s not a bad way to pass the time. Perfect for a rainy or snowy day when you can’t go anywhere and want to snuggle up to a good book.

I also think that it would be a great bedtime story or a book that you could read to your kids before bed, you won’t finish it all before bed, but you could finish a chapter a night before bed no problem.

So, since I’ve reviewed the book, later in this month, I will be reviewing the movie because you know that’s what makes sense to do, right?

What do you think about the book? Were you as shocked as I to find out that there was a book to the movie? Let me know in the comments below.

Book Review – I Hate Myselfie & It Gets Worse (Shane Dawson)

 

images

 

Hey Dearies! Since I finally have finished both books, I figured I would do both of them in one review, just to make it easier! So, if you don’t know or haven’t been following me, I am a HUGE fan of Shane Dawson, I’ve been a fan since the first video I watched of his, which was ‘Fred is Dead’. 

After that, I followed him through his YouTube journey and to what he is currently doing now, however, I never got a chance to get his books until a year ago. Which is why this review is very overdue, but I don’t care because Shane is amazing!

So, when I finally got his books, I got more of an understanding of not just his past, but some of the challenges he had to face when he was younger and up now. As you look at him now, he does struggle with some of those challenges today, but I see him as more confident now, than he was before.

You see, when you watch YouTubers videos, you see what they want you to see, you don’t see the depression, anxiety, or any of their struggles outside of the YouTube community. Sadly, if anyone does bring light to what’s going on in the background, but Shane did in his book and just like how Brittani Lousie Taylor did in her book.

I don’t want to spoil the books for anyone that hasn’t had a chance to read it, so I just want to say that the first book was amazing and it gave me the insight to sort of how his childhood and teen years were like for him.

Also, he did a short film of the Prom chapter, which I will leave a link for here, if you would like to see them, they are hilarious!

Part 2

Also, I want to note that one of the reasons why I follow and another Shane is because we have the same problem that we share together, whether he knows it or not. We both have been struggling with our weight.

As like him, I’ve been struggling with it for as long as he has and it sucks. In high school, I got picked on and judged because I had the extra weight. I used to wear a sweatshirt on all the time because I didn’t want anyone to see how fat I am.

Even after having kids, I’m still struggling with it, but if there is one thing Shane has taught me, it is to love yourself and to not listen to those who judge you based on your weight. In other words, live your best life however you want to live it.

After his first book launched, then he had a second one, which was around the time of when he came out as bisexual, so one of the chapters talks about how he struggled as a kid on what type of gender he was attracted to.

I don’t know much about that because I’ve never had to deal with something like that, all I know, that it is a very hard thing to do, for those who struggle with who they are.

That essay made me understand that he wasn’t just struggling with his sexuality for a few months or years, but almost his entire life.

The very last chapter was a chapter that his mom wrote and I loved that he let her do that because if you grew up watching Shane, you grew up watching his mom and they would do skits and videos together.

Not to mention, he loved to surprise her and when he bought her to see Kathy Griffin, it was amazing for him to do that for her. I love the closeness that they had together as Mother and Son, which I hope I will have the same closeness to my daughter as they had.

Here is another short film that he made for the second book!

Overall, I loved both the books, there was a love of things that I didn’t know about Shane, or what he didn’t want our fans to see and I’m glad I know. It makes me love Shane and want to support him more and more!

One more thing, I just want to add, this has nothing to do with the books, but the friendship that he has with Jeffree Star I think is amazing and I wish I had a friendship like that!


Are any of you Shane Dawson fans? Or have you read his books? Let me know in the comments down below!

Circle The Drain – Friday’s Short Stories

Circle The Drain

Hey Dearies! This story is a little more serious topic, that involved alcohol abuse and what can occur to those who are affected by it. I just want to also make a disclaimer that if you are triggered by physical abuse, please read with caution. I also want to point out that this is just a story, this isn’t a true story.

This is from an older Katy Perry song that wasn’t one of her famous songs, but this one I think has a bigger message to those who are around those who can’t control the addictions they have started or picked up. Here’s a link to her song:

I’m not sticking around to watch you go down.

She could hear the crack of another bottle opening, this was her father’s 6th beer and she could tell things were about to get worse before they get better. Instead of grieving her mother’s death, her father drowned himself after work in that bottle.

That bottle.

She hated that bottle and the contents that were in it. She wished when the days were back to as they were: happy and simple. That all changed when her mother was killed in a drunk driving accident. After that day, everything changed.

She remembered her mother just stepping out to get some stuff for supper, she wanted to go with her, but her mother told her she was going to be right back. Then 2 hours after she left to get food, they got that call, it changed her life and her father’s.

Tears started to fall down her cheek, just thinking about it. She wiped them away and saw that a tear had fallin on her homework, as she tried to wipe it away. She missed her mother, she wished that she was in the car with her, that maybe she could’ve made sure that her mother stayed in the store longer and missed the driver or she was in the car with her mom when she got hit.

“Go to bed!” My father yelled, it was only 3pm and she was just trying to finish up the leftover work that she had to get down for class. Her eyes landed on that bottle as she wished she had the courage to rip that bottle from her father’s hands and throw it out the window.

Instead of arguing with her drunk father, she gather her stuff and headed into her room, slowly closing the door behind her.

Before she knew it, her father had swang her bedroom door open, startling her as her stuff fell to the floor.

“Don’t turn your back on me, you listen and answer me!” He shouted again and raised his fist, throwing a punch at her.

She winced in pain as she held her hurt cheek, more tears started to fall as this wasn’t the first time he’s done something to his, but it was never more than just a slap. She froze on the ground as she covered herself from his beatings and kickings.

Once he was down, he left her alone, on the floor, bleeding from his beatings. She tried to sit up, but wince in pain before she could. She didn’t understand why. It had only been 7 months since her mother’s death, but what she had been going through, make it seem that it had been a lifetime that she has been going through this.

She pulled herself up, after waiting for the pain to go down, grabbing her backpack and grabbing a few things that she needed before opening her window and sneaking out.
She was greatful for living in a trailer park and knew exactly what to do. She headed down the second street of their trailer park and slowly walked down to Mrs. Humble’s house.

She would always remember the times that her mother used to go down to Mrs. Humble’s house to help her with grocery shopping, cleaning her house, and spending time with her and her husband, and when they heard the news about her mother passing, they were heartbroken.

Mrs. Humble also knew her since she was a baby and treater her just like one of her own grandchildren, giving her presents and teaching her new things, she enjoyed her more than her mother’s presence.

She now stood outside of the Humble’s house, their porch light had just gone on and she could see through the window, Mr. Humble watching T.V. in his chair, as he was working on his crossword puzzles. Then she looked over and next to him was Mrs. Humble, knitting away at another blanket, which were always a favorite of hers to make.

Slowly, she approached the door, but once she rang the door bell, she saw Mrs. Humble opened the door and her eyes watered as she saw her fall into their house.

“Gary! It’s Linsey! Call 911!” Mrs. Humble yelled as she held her in her arms, rocking her back and forth.

Linsey woke up in a hospital room, Mr. and Mrs. Humble were in the room with her, and they ran to the side of the bed as her eyes fluttered open. “Linsey, how you feeling?” Mrs. Humbled asked as Linsey just shrugged. “We need to tell you something, dear.”

Linsey nodded as Mrs. Humble held her hand carefully. “They arrested your father for what he did.” Once Mrs. Humble told her what happen, Linsey was heartbroken. As much as what her father did to her was inexcusable, she didn’t want loose him too.

Linsey tried to speak, but nothing was coming out, she didn’t understand. “Dear, your father did a lot damage to your voicebox, it looks like you may have lost your voice. I’m so sorry, dear.”

She was so angry and sad at what the events had occured, but the one thing she hated more, was that bottle of liquor that had started it all.

The Monster’s Of Weddings (Friday Short Stories)

The Monster’s Of Weddings

Hey Dearies! Here is another little short story about when two mother’s end up butting heads over their daughter or soon to be daughter in law, about the plans for the wedding. Basically, this gives you an idea of how I would think Bridzella is awoken from her slumber when you are a bride.

Weddings are stressful. They’re especially tricky when one family is magical and the other hates spells, and both mothers want to control the celebration.

“I don’t know what I’m really getting into,” Tiffany said as she was being held in her fiances’ arms. She was dealing with a lot when it came to the wedding. As soon as she accepted his proposal, both her mother and Gail’s mother have been at each other’s throats, trying to make the wedding as there.

“I’m sorry, love. I know my mother can be a little wicked, but don’t worry. Once this wedding is over, everything will be perfect.” Gail explained as he gave her a light kiss on her cheek. “I’ll be back before the wedding, I’m going to get your wedding present, until then, try to get everyone to get along.”

Tiffany nodded as she gave her fiance one more hug, and then planted a kiss on his lips. She watched as he got on her horse and rode off the dirt path.

“Tiffany! Dear, I need to ask you what you want to do with the place settings for the reception?” She heard Gail’s mother calling out to her. Tiffany took a deep breath and turned around, giving her a small smile as she watched her mother-in-law, Selma, get closer to her.

Selma handed her a picture of lily’s, but before she could answer, her mother, Judy, can out and handed her a flower vase with sunflowers. “Tif, love. I think you would rather go with these, they will bright out the room for sure!”

Judy watched as Selma rolled her eyes, “I’m sorry, but you must be mistaken, lilies bring out her wedding dress better than those silly little sunflowers would ever do.” Selma snapped as Judy frowned, then they turned back to Tiffany.

“I honestly don’t know which one I like best, but perhaps I see the other choices for flowers and then I can make my decision?” Tiffany spoke sweetly to both her mother and mother-in-law.

Tiffany had a fear that something like this would happen. Selma and her family were gifted with magic and they weren’t, which made it harder for Judy to really expect Gail to be apart of their family.

Sadly, Selma has been planning for the day her son would get married and she was excited to finally meet Tiffany, the one who had ‘stolen’ her son’s heart, but will also steal the one thing that she’s been loving and caring for since after Gail’s father had passed.

Both of the mothers looked back at each other, giving them a dirty look to each. Selma looked back at Tiffany and frowned. “I guess my choice wasn’t good enough, eh?” Selma snapped at Tiffany, which shocked Tiffany because she has always been nice to her, but this must of been the last straw for Selma. “Wait till my son hears about this!”

Selma went back into the cottage, that they all were staying at until the wedding. “Selma, Gail just left, he went into town to get my wedding present. He’s gone until tomorrow night.” Tiffany explained as calmly as she could.
Selma threw the photos of the lilies on the ground and stormed off into the cottage.

Tiffany and her mother went back inside.
“Child, I know this is a difficult choice you have to make, but that old hag should know that everything that I’ve chosen for your wedding is already perfect!” Judy spoke, as

Tiffany had put some water into a teapot. Tiffany had a fire of anger, burning inside her. She had hoped that her mother and Gail’s mother would’ve gotten along. She also didn’t understand why the choices that she was given to choose from, was making it so she would favor one mother over the other.

She just wanted to plan the wedding with what she wanted, she wanted her day to be the happiest, most magical day of her life. Dealing with her mother and soon to be mother-in-law’s bickering back and forth, Tiffany was dreading planning this wedding.

Tiffany slammed the teapot on the floor and turned to her mother, she noticed that Selma had run out of her room to see what was going on.

“Just stop, mother! Please!” Tiffany looked over at Selma and Judy together. “Both of you are making this entire process of planning a wedding dreadful! I know both of you are trying to help me, but it seems like it’s about you both! This is Gail and I’s wedding day, we want it to be the most magical and wonderful day of our lives, but you aren’t allowing me to choose what I want for my special day!”

Tiffany turned to her mother, who was shocked at the outburst that was currently happening. “Mother, I love you, but you need to be okay with Gail and his family. Once we are married, we are all going to be one.”

She then turned to Selma, who too had a surprised look on her face at Tiffany’s outburst. “Selma, I know you want this to be perfect, but you have to be okay with me disagreeing with the choices you have already chosen for me.”

Tiffany then took a deep breath and slowly picked up the broken teapot that laid on the floor. “I just wanted you to both get along.” She spoke softly, but loud enough for them to hear it, as she picked up the broken pieces and laid them out onto the table.

Tiffany then ran off into her room. Selma and Judy stared at each other in silence.
“I better go check on her.” Judy sat, but before she could heat out, she was stopped by Selma.

“Your daughter is right, we should learn to get along with each other,” Selma spoke, letting go of Judy’s wrist. “I’m sorry for my behavior. It just hasn’t been easy since Gail’s father passed away a few weeks ago. I shouldn’t have taken it out on you.”

Judy then placed her hand on top of Selma’s and looked up into her eyes. “I’m sorry, too. I didn’t know Gail’s father, but I know how you feel.” Judy pulled out a napkin and handed it to Selma. “I lost my husband before Tiffany was born.”

Selma looked us, as then were red, from her crying, “Oh, Judy, I’m so very sorry, I shouldn’t-”

Judy gave her a warming smile. “Don’t worry about it. We both judged each other before we even got a chance to finally know each other. Let’s just put it all in the past or at least for the kid’s sake.”

Selma smiled as she wiped her tears. Then walking over to the teapot that Tiffany had dropped, she whisked her hands around and the teapot was fixed, brand new, just as it was before it was broken.

Both of them headed over to Tiffany’s door, where they could hear her sobbing on the other side of the door. Judy approached the nob, but before knocking on the door.

“Tiffany, can we come in, dear?”

Tiffany wiped her eyes and cleared her voice. “Yes, mother.”

Judy carefully opened the door and watched in shock of how her mother-in-law and mother were acting to each other. Normally, they would be staring at each other, giving dirty looks, but this time, they were only focusing on Tiffany.

“Hun, we just wanted to come in here and apologize. I’m sorry that we were so picking about your wedding. Especially how we treated each other. From now on, you choose whatever you for your wedding, anything at all.” Selma explained as Tiffany stood up to her bed, smiling.

Tiffany grabbed onto both of their hands and smiled. “Thank you.”

Finally, the big day approached, Tiffany was more than excited for her big day, but she got rather sad before she was about to walk down the aisle. She had always dreamed of her father walking her down the aisle, giving herself away, but this reality was, she would be walking alone.

Just as she grabbed her flowers, she took a deep breath and noticed her mother and mother-in-law, wrapping around each of her arms.
“I know this is something your father would’ve done, but Selma and I decided that we don’t want you to do to this alone.” Judy smiled, as they both gave Tiffany a boost of confidence.
Tiffany looked down the aisle and smiled when her eyes gazed upon Gail. Walking down the aisle never seemed so easy, once she approached Gail, both her mother and Selma gave her a kiss on the cheek and held her hand out to Gail.

He smiled as he saw his beautiful bride be. Leaning into Tiffany’s ear, he whispered. “I’m surprised things are going quite well with you three. What’s your secret?”

Tiffany giggled and leaned into his ear. “Just a little bit of bridezilla seemed to do the trick.” As they turned to face the preacher to start the beginning of their lives together.

Unforgotten – Chapter 39

If you haven’t read Chapter 38, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/02/25/unforgotten-chapter-38/


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.”


Chapter 40: TBA

New chapters will be posted every Monday! Can’t wait til then? Check out the book on Wattpad! Search ‘katieasehl’, not only will you find this book, but other’s that I’ve finished or currently working on!

Random Review: Crochet/Knit Electronic Finger Counter

Hey Dearies! So, this month, we had an extra Saturday and instead of doing nothing on that Saturday, I figured I would do something a little bit different. The random reviews are a review that are based off of anything, could be from arts and crafts supplies to kitchen or office stuff.

This week, I wanted to talk about these super cool finger counters and if they are really worth it or if they are helpful.

So, when I first got into crocheting, I was counting rows on paper and pen, which does make it easier to follow rows because I write out the rows on paper and cross them out when I’ve completed that row.

Plus if I have to go back or figure out exactly what row I’m on, I can look down onto that sheet of paper and find out where exactly I left off. However, there are a lot of downfalls to using pen and paper, especially if you have younger kids that LOVE to get into anything.

Which is when I next looked into other ways to count my rows, without dragging the paper and pen around. I wanted something that was portable and easier to keep tract of counting, which is when I found the electric row counters for your fingers.

First, let me start off by saying that I got really excited to use these, which I ended up getting myself a pack of 2, just in case, which there is really no harm in doing so.

I honestly loved them!

However, as much as I loved them, I did have a few minor complaints.

Having this on your finger, to me, was a pain in the butt. Then again I have really long and thick fingers, which doesn’t help the fact that the adjustable band doesn’t fit ‘perfect’ on my finger.

To me, it’s a little too loose for my liking. Other than that, it worked great!

One of the best features of these little counters is that after a few minutes of not counting your rows, it would shut off, but keep track of what row you were on when you turned it back on.

Another great feature it has is that it’s not just in one boring color, but can come in many different colors, currently, I have a green and pink ones since those are my two favorite colors!

Not to mention, it does a better counting, I feel than any other app that is out there. (Which I will review that in the future.)

What do you think about this little gadget? Do you have one or wasn’t sure about getting one? Leave a comment down below and let me know what you think about them!

Ain’t Your Mama (Friday’s Short Stories)

Ain’t Your Mama

Hey Dearies, so this week is another song that I’ve turned into a short story. I’m a big fan of JLo and ‘Ain’t Your Mama’ is one of my favorite songs that she has done. The song is about how women shouldn’t be treated to be someone’s slave. What I have gathered from it is that women shouldn’t be the only one to do everything, but 50/50 and sharing the responsibility in a partnership because we ‘AINT NO ONE’S MAMA!’ The only mother we want to be is our children’s mama.

Jackie watched as she slaved over the stove, making another meal for her boyfriend, Will. She was already over this life she was doing, ever since she moved in with him. Before that, their life was great.

They would go out for dates at least once a week, they would make time for each other and they were so in love, but that all changed when she agreed to move in with him.

She never thought that she would be cleaning up after him every day and night. She never thought she would have to come home from work and make sure he had a hot meal to eat every night.

Jackie felt more like a zombie, repeating the same things every day. Wake up, clean, cook, go to work, and repeat.

She craved the love that they used to have together, the nights that they would cuddle on the couch together and spent time playing games or watching movies. She missed those times, but now, all Will seemed to want to do was be on his phone or play video games without her.

As she was stirring the boiling pasta, it hit her. She was doing everything that his mother would be doing for him.

For weeks and weeks, she had asked him to help her or split up the chores, like they did with bills, but she would get the same old saying:

“I’ll do it later.”

Which was Will’s code for ‘I ain’t doing it at all.’ Jackie was over it all, she was tired of the same old stuff that she didn’t think she was signing up for when she moved in. She thought that he would do his part, too.

Jackie knew how much she loved Will, but the pattern had to stop, she couldn’t keep living like this, she wanted to respect and help, not because she asked, but because that’s what was needed.

The thought of marriage and having children with Will scared Jackie to think that it would be even worse than it already was now.

As she turned off the stove, drain the pasta, as she heard Will screaming through the headset. She placed the pasta in with the sauce and mixed it, then took the bowl to the kitchen table, where she had hoped they could’ve eaten together since she had gotten everything ready for the kitchen table and not for their TV food trays.

Will finally came into the room, smiling at her and then grabbing what he wanted for food and then walking back in the living room.

Jackie has had enough, she wasn’t going to spend another night sitting at the table alone, she wasn’t going to spend another day catering to his needs while hers are put on the back burner, and she wasn’t going to spend another day waiting for Will to change his ways.

She grabbed the bowl of salad, that she had just made and walked into the living room, dumping the salad all over him.

“I’m so sick of this, Will! I’m done!” She said, dropping the bowl onto the floor as Will didn’t know what to react.

“What the hell? Your gonna clean this up, aren’t you?” He snapped back at her, which made Jackie’s blood boil more.

“I’m going to clean this up? What do you think I am, your maid?” She yelled, crossing her arms across her chest. Will stood up, as the salad pieces fell to the ground. “If you want someone to clean up after you then you might as well go move back in with mommy.”

Jackie then left the living room and went into the bedroom, packing her stuff and leaving Will. As hard as it was to do that, she couldn’t help but cry. Deep down, she knew she couldn’t change him, unless he was willing to change for himself.

As she drove off to her sister’s house, she cursed how lazy he had become and how his mother pampered him so much that he wasn’t able to do anything for himself, but it was one less thing she was worried about.

She was more focused on herself and if love did happen to knock on her doorstep, she would make very clear that she wouldn’t end up being someone bitch ever again.


Let me know what you think about this week’s short story! Comment down below if you have a song in mind for what I should do next for next Friday’s!

Unforgotten – Chapter 38

If you haven’t read Chapter 37, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/02/19/unforgotten-chapter-37/


Athena’s P.O.V.
I looked around, wondering if I was in heaven, everything looked so familiar to me. I knew I wasn’t with everyone else, instead, I felt like I was our old house.

I sat up, looking around my old room, where there were posters hanging on the wall, tons of yarn and crochet books all over my desk, with a basket next to the side of my bed where my finished projects laid.

As I glance at the end of my bed, I noticed the blanket I crocheted for Ricky. Was I dead? I asked myself, I couldn’t tell if this was a dream or it was really happening. I got up from my bed and exit my room, I heard the sound of a baby crying, it sounded like it was coming from my parent’s room.

I slowly walked up to the room, as I approached, the door slowly opened, as my eyes widen, I saw my mother, rocking a tiny baby in the old rocking chair that she used to rock Logan and me in. I felt my eyes watered as she looked up from the baby and smiled when she saw me.

“I missed it when you and your brother were this little.” She said, looking back down at the baby and smiled. “You used to smile when you sleep, Logan, on the other hand, would suck his thumb if he didn’t have his pacifier.”

I walked closer towards her and the baby she held. I cried more, thinking that death had really caught up to me, as I touched my mother’s hand. She felt warm and alive that it made me feel that this must be what death is like.

She finally looked up at me, as I watched the baby’s eyes drift off to sleep. “I never thought that I would be the one to leave you all first.” She looked up at me and I looked over at her, she still had started to cry. “I’m so sorry I treated you and your brother the way I did. I was so caught up in what would happen to you both that I made it impossible for you to live life better than I did.”

“Mom, it’s okay. We both understand now.” I was able to choke up as I placed my hand on her shoulder, she then carefully placed her head on my hand, I could feel more of her warmth. “Am -I” I was about to ask, but she read my mind before I could answer.

“Dead? Not exactly.” She said, lifting her head from my hand and standing up, with the baby in hand. “That’s why you are able to still see me.”

“How so? Am I like in the in-between of life and death?” I asked.

“Sort of, but your Aunt is making sure that you will be alive.” I watched as my mother’s eyes got all watery. “I watched you, Athena. I saw what happened and if your Aunt Marie didn’t do what she thought was right, you might not be living.”

I looked over at the baby, that had started to cry. “What did she do?” I asked, but as my mother looked down at the baby, there was a look of sorry, when she looked down at the baby, I started to back away from them both until I hit the wall. “That’s not-”

“It is. She is giving you a second chance to live, Athena. You just need to take the baby and you’ll be able to be with your father and brother again.” She explained as I covered my mouth with my hands.

I couldn’t believe that my Aunt would take her possibly only chance to have a child, just to save my life. I didn’t want to look at that baby nor take it. I didn’t want to have another chance at life if I was taking another person’s chance to have a life.

“I can’t take it, Mom, I just can’t,” I said as I slid down the wall, crying.

“Yes, you can, Athena. Do this for me, I want to do whatever it is you have to do to be happy. Your father and brother need you more than ever, your father can’t lose me and you too.” She got down on the floor next to me, holding the baby closer to me, it stopped crying when it got closer to me.

I looked into my mother’s eyes as she begged, “Please, Athena.”

I finally caved as I shook my head yes. “Okay…”

“One more thing,” My mother said before handing the baby over to me. “Tell your father and brother how much I love them.”

I nodded as more tears started to slip down my cheek. “I will. I love you, Mom.” I said as she gave me a hug.

“I love you so much, Athena. One day, we will see each other, but now, go and be happy and take care of your brother and dad for me.” She whispered in my ear as she slowly pulled away and leaving the baby in my arms.

I closed my eyes and held that tiny little baby in my arms, as everything started to grow bright around myself. I watched as that tiny baby went into my soul, slowly disappearing from my arms.

Everything turned back to black.

Then, I gasped for breath, my eyes opened as I started to shift my head around to see my brother and father’s eyes widened as they saw me. I couldn’t help by cry as they helped me sit up.

My father wrapped me into his arms as I held him tight. “I thought I lost you,” He said as I held him tighter. I looked over at my brother as my father let me go, just enough to pull us all in for a family hug.

Unforgotten – Chapter 37

If you haven’t read Chapter 36, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/02/11/unforgotten-chapter-36/


Logan’s P.O.V.
“It’s been over two hours, I need to know what’s going on!” Shouted, since Dad brought in Athena, the way she looked. I knew I should’ve never stayed.

It was even worse for Dean, who begged and begged Elle to let him be with her, but Elle sent everyone out, including Dad and me.

I didn’t want to wait any longer, I wanted to know if my sister was going to make it. Watching her being laid down on that table, so lifeless and wearing that dusty old wedding dress, covered in her blood.

I started pacing back and forth, doing everything I could think of to get my mind off of the endless waiting. I looked over at Dean, he was just as worried as we all were, his sister was standing by, rubbing his back as his foot kept tapping on the floor, trying his best to stay sane.

We all were, we were worried as hell to know what’s going on.
________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.
I waited with the others, hoping Athena would awake. I knew what I had done, but I didn’t know what it would cost me. I just couldn’t have another person die because of me and the selfish acts that I had done before.

I hugged my brother, as he came out of the room, he had a releveled look on his face, but I sensed that there was something wrong.

“How’s Athena?” I asked as everyone else gather around Tanner.

“Elle had to put her in an Earth Coma, whatever that is, but Elle said that she should get stronger over time.” He explained as I looked over and watched as Elle stood in the doorway and motioned for me to come over.

Before I left, I smiled at my brother. “An Earth Coma will help her body heal faster, but don’t worry, she’ll be safe.”

I gave my brother one last hug before going into the Healing room with Elle. I closed the door behind me as she gave me a questionable look.

“You are sure you want to go through this?” She asked. There was no way that I was going to let my niece die. Elle motioned for me to laid in the bed next to Athena, as I looked over at her. She was pale, but her Earth element was protecting her, for now.

“I can’t let my brother suffer anymore because of me. I’m not going to lose my niece.” I laid down straight as Elle walked over to my side, holding my hand.

“Are you sure you want to do this alone? I’m sure your brother or James would-“, Elle asked again, but I interrupted her. “This is something I can handle. Please, just save my niece.”

Once I spoke those words, a tear fell down my cheek, as I rubbed my swollen belly. Elle grabbed one of the vines, from Athena’s Earth coma and wrapped it around my belly.

Then, Elle started to pour witch hazel on Athena’s chest, right where her heart was and on top of the vines that sat on my belly.

Elle closed her eyes as I took a deep breath, and kept thinking about all those things that I might never be able to do. Deep down, I didn’t want to give up being a mother, but right now, I needed to stop being so selfish.

As much as I wanted to be a mom, Athena had already lost hers and I wasn’t going to left my brother loose another part of Jade, that he had left. I needed Athena, and she was needed by all of us.

I relaxed my body, thinking of nothing, but positive thoughts as I whispered: ‘I’m so sorry, baby. Mommy will see you again soon.’

Then, the place that once held my unborn child, was back to normal. The swollen baby bump I had was gone, but when I looked over, I watched as Athena started to heal faster, there was color starting to appear on her skin, again.

Elle helped me sit up as I started crying. “It worked.” She wrapped her arms around me, as I kept crying.

“It did, however, it still might take her a day or two to get her out of her coma, but the question that I have for you is, how are you going to tell the others about this?”

Before I had a chance to think about it, James came into the room, looking confused when he noticed I no longer had a swollen belly, carrying his unborn child. When our eyes met, I didn’t know what to say to him, I felt horrible.

“What did you do?” He asked me, all I do was cry as I saw the look of fear in his eyes. At that moment, I didn’t know if he would ever forgive me for what I had just done.

Kerosene – Friday’s Short Stories

Kerosene

Hey Dearies! Sorry that this one is a little late, but I decided to mix it up by taking a song and turn it into a short story! So, I went with the song Kerosene by Miranda Lambert. 

Well I’m giving up on love ’cause love’s given up on me

The sun was setting on a long hot day and Sasha Kendel had just lit a cigarette, sitting outside her shitty trailer. She never liked the taste of cigarettes, but there was nothing else for her to do.

She never thought her life would be exactly like her father’s, living in a small crappy town where everyone knows your business and what you do. That was one of the reasons why her mother left, but Sasha got suckered into coming back to Fairfield, Georgia.

All her plans to leave went down the drain when she met Frankie Londe. He had walked into her life and at the time, made it worth wild. She was also in love with the idea of being in love that she forgets all of her original plans.

But that went all down the drain after Sasha found him with her.

It was a late night, she had taken the late shift at the only dinner they had in Fairfield. It had been a long day that she just wanted to go home and relax. She hoped that Frankie would be at their trailer, waiting for her when she got home.

As she walked to her car, she caught a glimpse of the bar, that was just across the street, she saw drunk people dancing and having a good time, but what stopped her in her tracks as she noticed someone.

Frankie was in the middle of the dance floor locking his lips with some blond that she had never met. At that moment, her heart dropped. She never thought in a million years that the love of her life would betray her.

As Sasha took another drag of her cigarette, then tossing the butt into the grown. She was so angry, she didn’t know what to do. She knew that Frankie was inside, making love to that blond that he was with last night. She never gave a notice that she was home, yet.

She got up from the porch and walked over to the kerosene that had caught her eye and grabbed it. Opening the container and pouring it all over her shitty trailer, dumping it all over the front door, around the trailer and back over to his black Ford truck.

She threw the container in the middle of the field and got into her car, taking out another cigarette and taking a match to lite it, then tossing it to the kerosene path that leads up to her trailer.

The flame took quickly, as it rapidly burned the path of kerosene, leading up to the front door and blazing the entire trailer in flames. Sasha took another drag and drove up the path and onto the highway.

She took one look in her rearview mirror and watched as her old life had burnt away, watching two naked people jumping from the window, half-naked and running away as the trailer blew up.

Sasha smiled and then placed her eyes back on the road. “Cheaters never prosper.” She said, driving down the highway and heading towards her new fresh start.


Let me know in the comments of what you thought about this short story! These will be posted every Friday and if you have a prompt or idea that you would like me to try out, let me know in the comments!

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/02/03/unforgotten-chapter-35/


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.”

Off The Record (Friday’s Short Stories)

Off The Record

Hey Dearies! This one is another romatic short story, but more about rich people, got the idea from one of the many books I read on Wattpad, but with this one, I almost wanted to make it into a book! Who knows, I might, but enjoy!

She’s working her way to the top the only way a woman can in this business: by being absolutely ruthless, heartless, and six times as tough as the men. But when one of those men, an underling, begins to soften her heart, she panics. Will she take their relationship off the books? Or take the “safe” path and send him away?

Allie Jaques never expected to fall in love, especially with someone that she had been partners with for years. She had been running her father’s business since he had passed, 3 years ago. Even though she was never close with him, she bravely took on his entire corporation.

After her mother had been out of the picture, as soon as she turned 16, she had been completely on her own and was doing just fine, that was until her father’s personal assistant, Carol Briggs came to her and told her about her father. She didn’t know what to say or how to feel but took the position.

She’s had her heart broken before, as she had dappled in mixing business with pleasure, but when he wanted to start a family, things ended on bad terms as Allie wanted to focus on building up that small little store. In other words, when the opportunity came around with the position, she gladly took it to get away from her ex.

“Alright gentleman, that will be all.” She spoke as she ended the meeting, gathering her paperwork as the others left the room, all, but Mr. Devin Wells. He was another parter that his father had sign on before he passed, but to Allie, it was nice to know someone who didn’t know her father quite as well as the other partners.

She felt his eyes on him, as she always has. Watching her every move, she loved it when the attention was on her, but Mr. Wells makes her want to do unspeakable things to her. She had been dreaming about it and thinking about it for months, how his touch would feel, how he would please her.

It made her blush just thinking about it, but she couldn’t have history repeat itself. She didn’t want to mix her business with his pleasure, but she couldn’t stop herself. As she kept gathering the papers, she was relieved to see her assistant come in. “Ms. Jaques? You have a call on the line, they say it’s about the meeting for tonight.” Helen said as she walked in.

“I’ll be right there, can you take these and schedule another meeting for next week?” She asked as Helen nodded, taking the paperwork from her hands and leaving the room.

As she was about to head out the door, Mr. Wells stopped her in her tracks. Placing his arm in front of her and turning his head to face her.

“Is there something you need, Mr. Wells?” Allie asked her heart started to beat faster when his eyes looked at hers.

“I’d like to talk to you, over dinner.” He said, smiling, as Allie couldn’t believe what he was finally asking. Allie wanted to jump to say yes, but her mind reminded her about what happened with her ex.

“Sorry, I don’t do dinner dates.” She smirked as she rejected him. He smirked back, but placed his arm down, letting her walk out and she headed towards her office.

Once she got in, she sat at her desk and dropped the papers all over her desk, putting her hands on her forehead. She had to say strong, she didn’t want her heart to control her life, as it once did.

She also didn’t want her needs to get in the middle of the business’s needs. It was hard enough that she had rejected men before, but there was something different about this one. She couldn’t put her finger on why she wanted to catch his attention.

Allie ended up staying up until she was about to head to the dinner meeting she had with two of the biggest clients. She needed her focus to be on making sure they wanted to sign again for the next 5 years on being partners with the company.

Helen had knocked and entered her office, holding her dry cleaning and placed it on her mini couch. “The limo will be here in 10 minutes, Ms. Jaques. Is there anything else you need for me to do?” She smiled, holding her hands perfectly together.

She had been with the company as long as my father had and she had been nothing, but sweet to Allie. Always making sure she had everything she needed, even staying longer to make sure things were completed before going home to her family.

I returned the smile as I got up from my desk. “Thank you, Helen. I can handle the rest, go home and see your family. Say him to Thomas for me.” Helen smiled and nodded.

“Thank you, I will. Have a good night, Ms. Jaques.” She said as she left the office.

Allie quickly got dressed and did some of her makeup, making sure it wasn’t too much. She then took the pins from her hair and let it fall to hang on her shoulders. Her hair was naturally curly, which made it easier for her.

Quickly grabbing her purse and heading down to the limo that was waiting for her. As the limo arrived at Romana Restaurant, she got a text message from Helen.

‘Mr. Klans canceled, but the other partner will be there, Mr. Wells.’

Allie’s face flushed as she entered the restaurant to see Mr. Wells, standing at the front of the restaurant, waiting to get seated at a table. Her first reaction was to turn away, she then remembers that she did have plans with Mr. Wells and Mr. Klans tonight.

She’s couldn’t cancel, she needed Mr. Wells to be convinced to stay for another few more years. She needed this partnership just as Mr. Wells needed it. Taking a deep breath, she composed herself and headed towards Mr. Wells.

“Ms. Jaques, a pleasure to see you again.” Mr. Wells said as a waitress was ready to seat us. He held out his hand, as she shook it. She watched as he eyed her up and down. She pulled away from his grasp and looked at him.

“Same with you.” Allie quickly said as they followed the waitress to a closed area for meetings. As they sat down, they ordered some drinks and looked over the menus. It was silent after the waitress left, but Allie was so hungry, she didn’t bother will a casual conversation like she normally did.

“It’s nice to finally get you alone to me.” Mr. Wells spoke as the waitress came back with their drinks, she quickly took a sip of wine and ordered their food. Once the waitress took their menu’s and left, Allie thought of what to say to him.

“This is just business, Mr. Wells. Nothing more.” She stated, but he chuckled at the response she had, places his elbows on the table, holding his hands together.

“Or so you think.” He then took a sip of his drink. “Why don’t we just call each other by our first names, Allison.”

When he said her full name, she had chills running up her back just thinking about it. She shook her head, telling herself to focus on the task at hand, making sure he’s still a partnership.

“Stop messing around, Devin. Let me get to the point, are you going to stay as a partner or no?” She snapped as he started to laugh again. She took a sip of her wine and waited for an answer.

“Let’s put business aspect aside for once, Allie. That’s all we ever talk about.” Devin spoke as our food came to us and placed it in front of us.

“Because that is all we will ever talk about is business,” Allie spoke with a straight face, hoping that Devin wouldn’t keep on this much longer.

“Is that you ever think about is work?” He asked as she finished her glass of wine. She was about done with this meeting. She got the waitresses attention and had her box her food. When she came back, she grabbed her food and got up from the table.

“Thank you for your time, but if you aren’t going to take this seriously, I’ll be on my way,” Allie said, but before she could leave the room, Devin had pushed her up against the wall, holding her hands above her head. “What are you doing?” She asked.

“Something we have been wanting to do for a long time.” He said as he leaned in and pressed his lips against hers.

It was so exciting for her, she hadn’t been kissed in a long time, but with Devin, she didn’t want it to stop. He dropped her hands, as they fell onto his chest, making them wander all over his body. He held his hands at her waist as they kept kissing passionately.

He pulled away, leaning his forehead on Allie’s and smirked. “Why did you stop?” Allie asked as they both stopped to catch their breath.

“If I kept going, I don’t think I would be able to stop.” He said as Allie adjected herself.

She couldn’t believe that just happened, instead of dealing with the awkwardness of the situation, she got up and left. Caught a cab and went home.

Allie decided to get ready for bed, when she got to her penthouse apartment, changing in a simple tank top and shorts. She then looked everywhere for her phone, until she realized that she had left it there at the restaurant, along with her purse and food.

All of a sudden, after she made herself a quick cup of tea, there was a knock at the door. It was 10 o’clock at night and she wasn’t expecting anyone. As she opened the door, Devin Wells was standing there when her phone, purse, and food in his hands.

“You left and forgot these. I figured you would need them.” He said, handing her stuff, as she placed them on her kitchen counter.

“Thank you, I was about to call the restaurant-,” Before she finished her sentence, he had caught her off guard by kissing her once again. She threw her hands in his hair, as he lifted her on her counter. She pulled away from his lips. “We can’t do this.” She whispered to him.

“But we can.” He said, kissing her lips once more, and then placing kisses up and down her neck. “What’s the harm?”

“What the hell,” Allie kissed him back as he embraced her in his arms.

After that night, they kept their contact but making sure that their business wasn’t in the mix of their pleasure. The agreement they had made sure that they were nothing more than just friends with benefits, but after a few months, Allie could help, but start to have feelings for him.

She didn’t want to tell him, knowing how their agreement was, she didn’t want to change it, but the longer they were together, the more she wanted to make it permanent.

Allie had just gotten out of work and headed straight home, she was expecting Devin to come over, but canceled plans with him. She was on her period and didn’t want to deal with him. As she got home, Devin was in her penthouse, cooking dinner. He had a key, but that was whenever she wanted a late-night booty call.

She never expected this. “What are you doing here?” She asked as he smiled. Devin never really came over when it was her time of the month and it surprised her that he was even here, although, the last time she was on her period, he ended up buying her chocolates.

The food smelled too good, as she watched him prepare a simple stuffed shells recipe. “I was in the mood to cook and didn’t want to eat alone, so I figured I’ve cooked for us.” He said as he poured me a glass of wine.

“This seems extra than just friends with benefits, Devin,” Allie spoke, as she took a sip of her wine.

“Is that a problem?” He asked. She didn’t know how to answer, but she didn’t want to overstay her welcome of their agreement. She loved the fact that he was spoiling her like such, but didn’t want this to be too good to be true and ruin it all.

“I don’t know, is it for you?” She asked as he shook his head no.

“Not at all, but there is something I need to ask you.” He said as he placed the food into the oven and throwing a towel over his shoulder. “Didn’t know if you wanted to come with me to a charity event, it’s sort of like a ball and I don’t want to hire a date, like I did last time.”

“Oh,” She said, as she wasn’t sure if she would want to go to a ball, but it was exciting to be asked. “Wouldn’t that be weird if I went? It would kinda make us a couple in the public eye, you know.”

He walked over to her and smiled, wrapping his arms around her waist, looking down into her eyes. “What if we were?” He asked. Allie’s heart raised, she didn’t know what to say. “Look, I know we had an agreement about us just sleeping together, but I want more with us. I don’t just want to be the person you lay with, I want to be the person you want to grow old with.”

The words he was saying were too good to be true, but then that voice in her head reminded her that he was still her business partner and didn’t know what would happen if they had become a couple. Would her father’s hard work be gone? Would the business crumble? Or would the partners drop her father’s company?

She had so many questions of what if’s that she was more worried about how other’s would think, instead of how she would think if they became something more. She was afraid of history repeating itself but more afraid to take that chance.

Allie and Devin ate in silent and as soon as they were both done, he left, not even giving her a kiss goodbye, like he normally does. All she told him as she wasn’t sure, which turned into another argument.

It was the night of the charity ball, Allie was debating ongoing, but since she was formally invited and it was for a children’s charity for orphans, she didn’t want to miss it. She hadn’t talked to Devin for months, and the only times that they did was when they had their weekly meetings.

As she was looking in her closet, she was trying to decide what to wear when Helen walked into the room, standing in the doorway wearing a black fine mermaid gown.

“The limo is here, Ms. Jaques. And I just want to say, thank you again for inviting me and my husband.”

I smiled. “No problem at all, I figured that a night out from the kids would be good for you too.”

Helen walked over and gave her a hug. Then she turned to the closet to pull out a sliver diamond dress that was tight-fitting at the top til the waist and then it was looser towards more of the bottom. “I think this one would look good on you,” Helen said and Allie agreed.

Without question about the dress Helen chose, Allie quickly got dressed and braided the sides of her hair, still having her long naturally curly hair fall to her sides.

Once they got to the charity event, Allie made sure to pledge her donation and then grabbed a glass of champagne, taking a sip and looking around the ballroom, her eyes were looking to catch Devin, but she couldn’t seem to find them.

But Helen and her husband, caught her eye, they were dancing together, Allie smiled as she saw how happy they were. Allie wished she would have that one day, but after what happened with Devin, she never thought she would find someone like him again.

As much as she didn’t want to admit it, she really missed him. She missed not talking to him, missed spending time with him, and mostly just missed his presence.

“Enjoying the view,” Devin spoke, as he stood next to her, holding a glass of champagne as well.

“I thought you weren’t talking to me.” Allie snapped, as she didn’t know why he was talking to her. She thought that he was still upset with her.

“I’ve talked to you,” Devin said, taking a sip of his champagne. “How about a dance?” He asked as he took both of their champagnes and placed them on the table.

Devin and Allie danced, moving around the ballroom floor with the others. “Why haven’t you returned my calls?” Devin whispered in her ear.

“I didn’t think you wanted to talk to me,” Allie said, looking up at him. He pushed a piece of her hair behind her ear.

“I always want to talk to you, Allison. Why can’t we be together?” He asked as she smiled. She wanted to be with him, but all she could think about was the business.

“I just don’t know. I worry about the business. I don’t want our public relationship to interfere with the business.” Allie explained, but Devin just smiled.

“If anything, it will grow.” He said as he twirled her around. “So, what do you say?”

She only took a minute to think about it before placing a kiss on his lips. She was ready for her happiness to start and she didn’t care about how everyone would feel about it, she was ready to start the next chapter.

After they came out to the public about their relationship, Devin was right, the business grows and they ended up combining both of their businesses into one giant one. After all that, Allie finally had the happy ending she deserved.

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.

Product Review: Color Street Nails

Hey Dearies! So, our first product review of the year will be from Color Street. Now, if you haven’t heard about this product before, they are an ‘MLM’ business that sells an easier way to applying nail polish in less time than it takes you to actually take the time to get your nails painted.

This company also offers the same opportunity to those who would like to be apart of this brand and sell it themselves, kinda like Avon or Paparazzi.

Now, this product, not only does it make it easier to apply nail polish, but there are tons of different designs and colors to try from.

If you are a mom like me, it can be difficult to actually take the time to paint your nails, not to mention having enough time to let them dry as well. So an easier way to not only apply nail polish but also not having to deal with having to air out your room or house because of the smell sounds like a plus to me!

Here’s what they look like:

Color-Street-Nail-Polish-Strips-New-and-Halloween
By the way, if this hasn’t already caught your eye, noticed how photoshopped the nail polish are to the fingers? Not kidding, this is how they show you what it looks like on their website!

I know what you are thinking, ‘Sounds good, but are they really worth it?’.

Well, let’s talk about it some more. So, when I am doing these types of reviews, I like to ask myself a few questions about the product before coming to a final conclusion. Because this is part of an MLM, I’ll be asking myself some other questions, such as these:

  • How’s the quality? 
  • How long does it last?
  • Does it work for me?
  • Is it worth the money?
  • Would it be worth signing up?
  • Overall, is it something I would use or buy again?

-How’s the quality?

I would say the quality looks pretty good in person versus online or in pictures. If this product isn’t shown on actual fingers and not ‘photoshopped’ on the same hands over and over, I think it would catch the eyes of customers better.

As you see in the photo above, if I didn’t mention the photo was clearly photoshopped, were you able to notice?

maxresdefault.jpg

-How long does it last?

These last about a week, depending on how active you are with your hands, it can last longer, but the real problem is that you can’t keep them on for long periods of time. My mom kept her Christmas ones on for little over 3 weeks and they turned her nails yellow.

Not to mention that once they start chipping off, they become pretty easy to peel off and once you start, you’ll keep going until they are completely off.

-Does it work for me?

Yes, it does. Even though the process can be a pain in the ass, they are definitely worth trying at least once. I hate to paint my nails and especially during the wintertime when you can’t or don’t want to open a window to air out the fumes of actual nail polish, they are very easy to put on either during the kiddos nap time or after they go to bed.

-Is it worth the money?

As of February 2020, they are priced at $13.00. You 2 full sets of nail strips to do both of your hands twice. They also have them in different sizes, so they should fit for all sizes if not, they can stretch a little bit to make them fit.

In one of the full strips, they only recommend you to use one of the full strips for each hand, but if your nails aren’t as long, you can definitely get to wear these or try them out 2 times and see if you like them or not to purchase again or give to a friend to have them try it out.

images.jpg

Another downfall with these as well is that once they are opened from that plastic seal they tend to get hard if they are left out for too long. I recommend putting your extra strips in a plastic baggie and making sure there isn’t any air for them to get dried up.

Overall, if you want a quicker way to do your nails, they are worth it, but because they have so many options, it’s hard to want to try out only a few.

-Would it be worth signing up?

The big question that everyone asks or should ask before joining an MLM company, is it truly worth it? Remember, if you aren’t passionate about the product or products you are selling, DON’T waste your money over it!

As always, before joining one of these groups, you have to have the extra money to purchase a ‘kit’ that is needed in order to start selling.

In my honest opinion, as much as I love doing my nails, I wouldn’t sign up. To me, I wouldn’t want to spend $125 dollars on a kit when I can use that money towards something else. Even though its a one time purchase, even after that, you still got to buy more products and get more people to join in order to make money.

86a64b4f9f14500a91bb676628dda7ff.png

This is something that you would have to look into and DO RESEARCH on BEFORE joining. Also, talking to current members and ex-members is very helpful, they can tell you if it’s worth it or not.

-Overall, is it something I would use or buy again?

Sure, it’s an easier way to put nail polish on, but I don’t think this would be something I would buy all the time. I do love the options they have on different colors, designs and glitters to choose from, but with it being $13 dollars for about 2 tries, it might be cheaper for me to get my favorite plastic stick-on nails that it would be to buy these.

I think these are perfect for holiday gifts and even if you want to have salon nails for the holidays. It’s hard to not want to try them all, but the fact that they have to photoshop their nail design, instead of placing them on actual nails, really bothers me.

Rewriting My Story (Friday’s Short Stories)

Rewriting My Story

Hey Dearies! So, this one is about heartbreak and how it is to start all over after a relationship ends. Hope you all like it! Let me know in the comments!

A woman who is deeply in love is crushed when her fiancé breaks up with her. “In life, every ending is just a new beginning,” says Dakota Fanning’s character in Uptown Girls.

Natalia never thought she would have to start all over again, but after being crushed by the love of her life, she didn’t know what to do or where to start. It was so unexpected, but she still didn’t understand why.

Collin Mather was someone she never expected to fall in love with, but she did. Having met him freshman year of high school, he was apart of the baseball team and hockey, always busy with sports that she was surprised that he had time with her.

They met at one of the home games of his, Natalia was a reporter for the school newspaper and since no one else that day wanted to go to the baseball game, she ended up going. Natalia never minded sitting by and watching the sports games, as long as she got the score and a little bit of the action, she would be set.

She watched as Collin stepped up to the plate, getting ready to swing his bat, it was the end of the game, as Natalia watched intently as he glared at the pitcher. They needed this win to be in the school finals, they were tied with the other team and just needed a home run.

Natalia sat on the edge of her seat as she wanted Collin to hit the home run, she needed this article to be on the front paper before school. The writing was always her passion, but she wanted to be more than just a side-stage reporter, she wanted to be apart of something huge, and her school winning to go to the finals was what she was waiting for.

The pitcher threw the ball and Collin’s bat hit the ball, as he threw it to the ground and ran as fast as he could to first base. The ball was way out in the field, too far for the outfielders to catch it as he hit first base and ran to second.

Before they even managed to get the ball, Collin had already hit the third base and was working on getting the home run they needed. Quickly the opposite team grabbed the ball and threw it to third, Collin threw himself to slide into home base, just in time before the ball was thrown to home base

They had won the game and made it on the finals. Natalia couldn’t believe it, but when she looked at Collins’s face, as the team collapsed around him, she could tell that this was something that he was waiting to happen. He was only a sophomore, but he was the first to take the school to the finals.

After they won, Natalia went to the team and started to interview the captain of the team, Jerry, Collin’s older brother. As she was taking some notes down, she noticed from the corner of her eye, Collin was watching her.

The next school day, they managed to print out the paper early that morning and lots of people were paying to read the main article, her article. Natalia was smiling as she handed out the papers.

“I can’t believe you managed to pull this off!” Joyce said as she handed out another paper, Natalia smiled at her best friend.

“I know, but the best part was, I think I have a crush on Collin,” Natalia whispered as Joyce giggled, but then turned back to the front of the stand were Collin was standing right there.

“Speaking of crushes, I’m going to go out back and get more copies.” Joyce winked to Natalia as she didn’t want her to leave her by herself with her crush.

Collin smiled as Natalia felt her cheeks get warmed, she had never had a crush before. “Natalia, isn’t it?” Collin asked as she nodded.

Joyce came back with the extra copies of the paper as Natalia handed one of them to Collin, as she returned the smile. “I’ll see you around,” Collin said, as he started heading down the hall.

“Wait till he reads the article, he’ll be head over heels in love with you,” Joyce smirked as Natalia covered her eyes.

Later that day as Natalia was leaving her newspaper club meeting, she was shocked to find Collin waiting outside the room for her. She slowly walked by him, gripping her books tightly around her chest.

She feared the worse, thinking that he might have not liked the article and wanted to confront her about what she wrote. “Natalia, wait a second,” Collin said, catching up next to her.

Natalia turned to face him as he looked like he was about to speak, but she stopped him from doing so. “I’m sorry if you didn’t like the article that I wrote. Did I say something wrong? Or was I wasn’t supposed to put your nickname that your teammates call you. I’m really sorry, I can go back and see about getting it change-,”

Collin had put a finger on her lips to shush her. “Nothing is wrong with your article. I loved it.”

Natalia’s face started to warm up, she was so thankful that he didn’t like the article, but what else did he want with her? “T-Thank you.” She managed to speak after his finger away.

“No problem. Finals are next weekend, are you going?” He asked as she nodded. “Alright, how about if we win again, I get to take you out on a date?”

You can probably guess what happened next, Collin won the game and Natalia went on her first date with him. After that, they started dating and stayed together after high school. Natalia never thought that she would be alone, after 6 years together, he finally popped the question.

Never did she think that two weeks before the wedding was planned to happen, he would call it off. She was heartbroken, but he wanted to focus on his career, while she wanted to start a family. Not to mention, she had found out that there was someone else he wanted to be with instead, too.

When that was all said and done, she felt empty, didn’t understand why she wasn’t good enough for him or what she did wrong to make him not love her anymore, but it gave her a new meaning of life. A fresh start.

She always wanted to be a writer and decided to write about her relationship, changing the names and town, she wrote her heart out about it all. The first date, first kiss, first time together, and so much more.

After she had finished, she sent it to her publisher and once it was published, it became the next bestseller, it sold out more than Twilight and Hunger Games combined. She got her dream and after finishing the book, she came to understand and realized why he left her and that it’s always okay to be alone because sometimes that’s the best.

Unforgotten – Chapter 34

If you haven’t read Chapter 33, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/01/20/unforgotten-chapter-33/


Athena’s P.O.V.

Once Lucas untied my blindfold, I looked around and noticed that I wasn’t in my simple cottage, but in an old farmhouse. This one looked a little familiar, especially when we were on the road traveling.

“What are you going to do with me?” I asked as Lucas lit a few candles around the room. The room was covered in the duct and cobwebs like this place had been abanded for years. My eyes turned to the left and I noticed in the kitchen that there was just a table, it too looked like it was going to fall apart.

“Well,” Lucas said, looking down at a photo that was framed on the table. I couldn’t notice who it was until he brought the photo closer. “You are mine. I’ve lost the only thing that has kept me going, until now.”

He walked closer to me as he held the photo frame of my mother, a tear fell from my cheek as he touched the side of my face. I just wanted it all to be over.

All I could think of was my dad and brother, how much I would miss them, not to mention my Aunt Maire and James. I wouldn’t be where I was today without them. Then I thought about Dean, how much I should’ve told him I loved him and how much he means to me. I wouldn’t be as strong today without him.

I didn’t want to keep thinking that, thinking that I would never see my friends or family again. I had to come up with a plan.

Lucas turned away and walked into another room as I tugged my arms to pull apart or loosen the rope around my wrists. I stopped once I noticed that Lucas had entered back into the room with a white dress.

It looked like a wedding dress, but it was covered in dust that seemed more yellow than white. “What do you think?” He asked me.

I nodded and faked to like the hideous dress. “If we are going to do this, we are going to do it right.” He then took me and pulled me into the same room he just came from. It was a bedroom, the smell itself made me wanted to vomit. Not to mention the bedsheet was stained with something brown.

He then took the rope off from around my wrist. “Put it on, I’ll be back in a second.” He said, as soon as he freed my wrists, he smiled and closed the door behind him.

I ran towards the windows, even though they were covered with boards, I wanted to see if any of them were loose, but they were all hammered in tightly. The strong scent caught my nose as I turned away from the last corner. Flies were all over the closet door.

I covered my nose as I slowly approached the closet door. I used my shirt to cover my nose as I opened the door. Two decomposing bodies were sitting in there as other creatures were attacking the bodies. I couldn’t hold it in any longer as I vomited right in front of the bodies.

I screamed as I backed away from the closet and going across the room to the other corner. I couldn’t believe these bodies have been sitting in that closet for however knows how long. I cried as I tried to stare away, but the wounds on their bodies told me that they didn’t die a natural death.

They were murdered.

I watched as the door swung open, Lucas was standing there shaking his head. “I told you to put on the dress. You weren’t supposed to see that.” Anger filled his eyes as I tried to back away more into the corner as I could. Lucas started to walk closer to me, holding a syringe in his hands. “Now, we are gonna do this my way.”

He walked faster towards me pointing the syringe at me.

“No!” I screamed, using my strength to get him away from me, but all I saw was a face in front of me when everything went black.

_____________________________________________________________________________

James’ P.O.V. 

I gripped onto the steering wheel, praying that nothing back has happened to Athena. She was the thing that I had left that reminded me of Jade. She looked just like her, same with Logan, but I wasn’t going to lose either of them.

Eli and I sat in silence as we drove off to this farmhouse. I finally broke the silence, wondering what Lucas’ plan was with my daughter.

“Does he know about Jade?” I asked as it hurt me to be reminded that she was gone. I promised to protect her too, but I failed to do so. I hated myself for that.

“Yes, he was told, which is why he shot me. He told me that Jade better be alive when we got there, otherwise, he would’ve killed me and Marie.” Eli said as I kept my eyes on the road, trying to get my mind off of everything.

“I’ve been meaning to ask you,” I paused as I looked over at him. Eli had completely disappeared after James had been turned into a vampire, but was staked. “How are you still alive? Marie told us you were dead.”

My eyes turned back on the road as I hear a sigh from Eli. “Let’s just say I had to fake my death to protect you all.”

“You could’ve told Marie that. She blames herself for you getting killed.” I said.

I looked over as I noticed that he was heartbroken at what I just said. I knew he loved Marie, they were perfect for each other. I knew she was always going to be safe being around him. Once he ‘died’, that’s when I started taking trips out to see her.

“I know, but the Vampire Court didn’t like the fact that you and Jade knew about our kind. They wanted me to kill you all, but instead, I faked my death. I had to make sure that Marie’s reaction was real so that she would push you away knowing that was the fate of us blood-suckers.”

My eyes opened wide when I saw that farmhouse in my view. I started to step on the gas, but Eli stopped. “No, we have to stop here. It’s a trap if we pull up in the driveway.” I stopped and turned off the engine. “He’s not alone.”

I looked around as I saw other people standing outside in front of the door. I looked back over at Eli. “So, what’s the plan?”

Eli smirked as he pulled out his phone and handing it over to me. “Call up those boys, we are gonna need a distraction.”

The Downfall of Luck (Friday’s Short Stories)

The Downfall of Luck 

Hey Dearies! Here is another one for you all! This one is about having really good luck and it turning out from better to worse!

A poor young boy or girl comes into an unexpected fortune. Not all fortunes are good. Sometimes discovering a fortune will destroy your life.

James never had any good luck in his life. He was broke, poor, and lived a stole car. He had to struggle his entire life, his parents worked hard, but his father left when he was two. His mother, on the other hand, kept working hard to provide for James, but ended up going down a dark path and ended her life when he was 12.

He’s been in and out of children’s homes that when he turned 15, he fled to be on his own. After that, he has been living on the streets ever since. He’s tried getting jobs or getting back on his feet, but no one wanted to hold out their hand to help. James was tired of being on the streets, but that’s all he had.

At the age of 27, he got what he was asking for. It was more than just luck, but hopefulness of his future.
James was doing his normal routine, looking for a job by asking around, gathering what he could for food to help feed himself, and hoping that some stranger would give him enough money to find a place to take a shower.

As he was walking in the streets of L.A., a tall blond businessman dropped his wallet, as he was leaving the coffee shop. He seemed too busy to notice what he dropped since he was on his phone.

James picked up the wallet and thought for a second. His luck was changing, but would it be worth it to use this man’s money? He then decided to follow that man, trying to catch up to him in the crowd, but once the man stopped, he finally tapped him on the shoulder.

“Sir, you dropped this?” James spoke as the man turned to face him. James held out the wallet to him.

“I’ll call you back, Charlie.” The man said as he placed his phone back in his pocket. “Thank you.”

“No problem. Have a nice day.” James said as the man took the wallet, but before James could leave, the man called back out to James.

“Wait, here.” The man said, handing James a hundred dollar bill. “Not many people would return a wallet back to its owner. Take it.”

James was shocked as to how many dollars were in his wallet, he was more shocked that this man was handing a homeless man a hundred dollar bill. James took the bill and smiled at the man.

“Thank you, sir.” He said as the man nodded and then turned away down the street. The first thing James thought of was taking a much-needed shower and getting some new clothes for himself.

Once he did that, he looked good as new. He had about 60 bucks left and wanted to make it last, but how. He started to question where he could make some more money or at least get a little bit more.

Then it hit him, as he looked up as to where he was, a casino. He smiled at the idea and walked inside. The lights were bright and the machines were loud, getting the attention of everyone who held chips in their cups, he didn’t know where to start.

He walked by a few machines and cashed in a few bucks to start, but there was one machine that caught his eye. The Wheel of Cash. James watched as people sprung the wheel, watching the click tick down to the number of prize money that was labeled onto the wheel. There were 4 jackpots, 4 losers, and the rest was random amounts of money under $2500 dollars.

It was $10 to play, but the chances he’d win were slim to none. Maybe this was my lucky day? James asked himself as he stood in line for the Wheel of Cash. There was only one person in front of him, a woman, who he had recognized quite well. She was one of those that would dress up for men wanting a good time.

Her name was Candy, she had asked him a few times if he wanted to spend some alone time with her, but both times he was completely broke. He watched her spin the wheel, checking out how she was dressed.

It wasn’t her normal entire, she usually had on short skirts and crop tops with her 5-inch heels that were always bright pink, but tonight she was dressed a little more class. Her blond hair was curled and pinned up, she didn’t have a lot of makeup on, and she was wearing a blue glittery dress.

As the wheel finally came to a stop, landing on $350 dollars, she gathered her cash and walked into James. “I’m so sorry.” She spoke, as James held out his hand to her.

“James, funny seeing you here.” She smirked as he pulled her to her feet.

“Same with you. I thought you were still on the street?” He asked. She shook her head no.

“I got out of that game a long time ago. I ended up falling in love and he saved me from what I was doing.” Candy said smiling at James, but she turned her head in another direction, her smiled changed. “Good to see you, I must be going.”

James watched as she walked away, but then realized he was next for the spin. Looking up at the Wheel of Cash, he saw the jackpot was for 1 million. Taking a deep breath and putting in his money and sprung the wheel.

His nerves were everywhere, he was so afraid of where it was gonna land. As the wheel started to slow down, he watched as it passed a jackpot, but it was still slowing down as it ticked to another Jackpot, stopping dead in its tracks.

The machine went off, letting the entire casino know that there was a jackpot winner.

After that, he was handed a million dollars in cash and was offered a suite room at the hotel as there a free treat for winning the jackpot.

This was it, he had finally had good luck, but didn’t know what to do with it. He had never had as much as maybe $500 dollars to his name, but now he had a million.

Instead of saving it and using some of the money to get him back on his feet, he decided to stay at the casino hotel for longer than he offered. He got himself a whole new wardrobe and took care of himself, making himself look like a million bucks.

He ate as much as he wanted, he slept with as many women as he wanted, and he lived life like he was born a royal. When the money started to get lower, he tried the Wheel again, hitting another jackpot.

One day, before he was heading down to the casino’s bar, there was a knock on the door. As he opened the door, he was surprised to see Candy standing before him. They didn’t speak a word, but she rushed up to him, pressing her lips against his.

Night after night, Candy would be over in his suite. He kept winning jackpots, to the point that the order of the casino was wondering if he was cheating or rigging his machines.

The casino’s owner, Logan Morin, was ready to make a deal with this man and find out what he was doing with his casino, but as he approached his door, the man was shocked to see his wife coming out of his hotel room, placing a kiss on his lips. It made his blood boil.

Logan called up his men and busted the door down. “That’s why you keep winning!” He shouted, pulling a guy from the back of his pants. “You are getting my money and my wife!”

James was shocked, he never thought Candy was married nor did she mention it. He put his hands up as he was about to explain, but before he could, the sound of a gun went off as he felt his entire body go into shock.

James looked down at his stomach as saw blood pouring out as he collapsed onto the floor. This was it, his luck had turned on him. Candy was the one making him win the jackpots. He said there and thought his last thought, what he would’ve done differently.

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.

The Art of Love (Friday’s Short Stories)

The Art of Love

Hey Dearies! I know this one is a little late, but I wanted to make sure I took a little extra time on this one. It’s not exactly like the prompt, but I did add in a little twist of it. 

Two dirt-poor art students survive by sharing a nasty little apartment above a bodega. They struggle through four years, barely making ends meet, comforting one another through tragedies and triumph, but never openly admit how they feel about each other…until they graduate, and one of them gets a job in another city. Is it too late to confess their love?

Living in New York City wasn’t easy, let alone being a paint. Jackie Brown wanted to see her name on every billboard, street store, and all over New York. Since she was 3, that was always her dream.

Her father was a famous painter himself, as so as her mother. Once they had her, Jackie’s mother felt that her child was holding her back from becoming famous and so let Jackie and her husband to New York.

Last time Jackie saw her mother, was 10 years ago. Now, she was 23, fresh from college and off to make her hobby into her dream, however, New York was expensive. Jackie’s father wanted to come with her, to make sure her dreams really did come true, but Jackie didn’t want her father to help her on that journey.

She wanted this one by herself.

After being in New York for a few days, she managed to find a place for her to stay in. Kenny Hunt was her only available option, especially with money being so tight, she didn’t want to be left on the streets.

Climbing up to the 3rd floor, onto an old book store, she knocked onto the door, with the faded ‘3C’ that sat on an old wooden door. After a minute or two, the door finally opened with Kenny behind it.

“Jackie, right?” He asked.

“Yes.” She nodded, giving him a soft smile as he opened the door more for her to come in. “Thank you again for this.”

She turned to face him, looking at his dirty blond hair and bright blue eyes. As she gazed into his eyes, he looked like he was hurt inside, like someone has ripped his heart out from his body and stuffed it in a trash can.

Kenny turned away, walking back to his canvas, ignoring her. As she looked around, she notices this was a very old room, it was a room that didn’t look like it was used for sleeping at all. The wide-open space had faded, cracked dark wooden floors. The paint used for the walls was faded and looked like there once were mirrors that inclosed the place.

As she turned to her left, there was a mini hall, looked like there were a few other rooms and hopefully a bathroom. Behind her was a stove, sink, and fridge that looked out of place from this room, but more than an old dance studio was out of place for any of this.

She didn’t see any mattresses or beds for her, in the opened space. Instead, the opened spaces were covered with canvases, paint, and brushes. It was like heaven to Jackie, making this choice the best one she had made for herself.

“Where can I put my stuff?” She asked, as his blue eyes looked up from the canvas.

“Down the hall to the right. Just don’t go into my room.” Kenny snapped as he went back to painting. Jackie was curious to know what he was painted but instead went to put her stuff away.

After being there for a few weeks, Jackie got herself comfortable, but Kenny seemed to rather ignore her. She had tried to work up the courage to place an empty canvas on one of the many empty easels, but hadn’t.

Brushstroke after brushstroke, she watched him from afar, not wanting her to see her eyes on him, she watched him move the brush back and forth like it was a dance he knew how to dance. Not to mention she couldn’t help but notice his arms had a few tattoos, but the one that caught her eye the most was the tree tattoo inside his left arm.

She wanted to ask him about it, it was the only one that she had noticed that was fairly new to his body, as the other tattoos he had were more faded. It took her a minute to realize that the tattoo was the tree from Lord of the Rings.

She got up and walked out of her room and slowly approached Kenny. He looked up for a second but turned away back to his piece. As she got closer, she noticed that his painting wasn’t of any object or item, that she thought it was, it was simply a mess of different colors of blacks and greys.

It was different from what her parents have painted before, but they were more into landscapes, such as mountains, hills, forests, and lakes. This was solid, but it spoke to her that something in his past had made him paint this way.

“What?” Kenny snapped, jumping Jackie, as she was zoned into his piece, rather than him.

“I-I was wondering if could use that spare easel?” She spoke nervously, she wanted to ask about his tree tattoo, but she had forgotten it, getting lost in his eyes.

Kenny changed his emotion, looked rather more confused like he didn’t think she would ask something from him so bold. “You paint too?” He asked as she nodded.

“I do, my parents do, too.” She said as he looked at her.

“Go for it.” He said, going back to his easel. Jackie was so enlightened that she ran to grab her supplies and set them up next to the easel.

Over the next couple of months, the started to bond over their love of painting and art. As much as they wanted to spend all of their time painting, Kenny had a part-time job down at the book store and Jackie had just gotten a job as a florist, that was also down the street.

Jackie had just finished her latest creation, it was of a couple, standing in the middle of the rain, sharing a deep kiss, with the background having rainfall underneath them all, not giving a care in the world as to what would happen.

It reminded her of her last love, that were that couple she painted. He had her heart, but she didn’t want it. She had gotten pregnant, but ended up losing the baby, which changed their relationship although. He wanted to settle down and build a giant family, as Jackie just wanted to paint and when she was ready, start a family.

That was their last kiss goodbye. They didn’t want to hold each other back and wanted to have one last kiss before they moved onto different lifestyles. Hence, why she wanted to leave New York.

Kenny came over, as she signed off of her painting. “Incredible, really.” He touched her shoulder as she watched him look into every detail she put into the painting. “What are going to call it?”

Jackie took a minute to think about it, coming up with the titles of her paintings was harder than it was for her parents. “Not sure yet.” Still admiring her work.

She glanced at Kenny’s easel, he had just a blank canvas, naked, as Jackie liked to call it. Ever since she started to paint in the same room as him, his painting has changed from dark and depression, to more artistic and creative, making them more appealing to the eye.

Her heart fluttered each time he would come up to her and watched her paint, as she would do the same. She had tried to open him and get him to talk to her, but he was a locked door, not letting anyone in.

That all changed. Jackie was working at her job when she got a phone call from the office from her mother. She wanted to let her know she was dying from cancer. That was the real reason why she left in the first place, she didn’t want Jackie to see her.

Jackie’s heart dropped as she got off the phone, it all made sense, she wondered why her father was always upset and depressed, but she thought it was because her mother had left, choosing her work over the family when really she was getting treatment for her breast cancer.

After work, when she got home, she didn’t say anything to Kenny, as he watched as she sadly went into her bedroom. She wasn’t in the mood to talk, didn’t even feel like painting, which was a first for her because she had always loved to paint.

“Jackie?” Kenny called out, but there was no reply from her, he didn’t want to intrude. It made him worry about her. Her happy self was what was keeping him inspired to paint masterpieces ever since his little sister had passed away.

Instead of answering Kenny, she curled herself up in a ball on her mattress and started to cry. There was nothing she could do, but felt like she needed to do something. She wanted to go to her happy place, but painting sounded so foreign to her.

She felt Kenny’s eyes on her like he was drilling a laser into her head. As much as she wanted Kenny’s attention, there was something more that she wanted. A distraction.

Siting up from her bed, she looked over at Kenny, as he sat on the bed beside her, gazing at his blue eyes, but her eyes wandered to his lips. “Is everything okay?” He asked, but instead of answering him, she leaned into his faces and pressed her lips against his.

Kenny froze for a second, not realizing that her lips were upon his, he didn’t know how to react, but before he could embrace the kiss, she had pulled away. Kenny’s mind was questioning if he should kiss her back or leave the room awkwardly.

Jackie looked back at him, waiting for his response, but his face looked confused. Did she kiss him wrong? She thought, but maybe it was too sudden for him, she thought again.

Until he caught her off guard and very slowly placed his lips together with hers.

She was lost into the moment, embracing Kenny’s warmth that she so craved, however, instead of taking their clothes off to get further lost into each other’s arms, they both laid down on her bed, and had him embrace her, snuggling up close together and making her feel something that she hadn’t felt in a long time.

Safe.

As he brushed a strand of hair from her face, she finally spoke, telling him about her mother and her condiction.

“Go to her, you should spend your last moments together,” Kenny spoke, as much as it killed him to see her go, not knowing how long she would be gone for or if she would ever come back, he didn’t want to miss out on those final moments that he did with his sister.

“I can’t, I don’t have the money,” Jackie said as he understood her situation, he was in the same boat, being an inspiring artist wasn’t easy. He had been doing odd jobs, just to save up for an apartment, but it was never enough.

 

The next morning, Jackie was left alone in her bed, Kenny had stayed with her all night long, just to make sure she was okay, but he wasn’t next to her. She got up and started getting ready for the day, when she saw a note on the fridge, with enough money to get her to see her mother and possibly come back.

‘Don’t miss another moment away from your mother. You’ll regret it in the end.’ – Kenny

She smiled, as he was right. Quickly, she packed a few things and took the train to the other side of town, trying to make sure she was able to get to the hospital in time. Once she arrived, she was greeted by her father.

He hugged her tightly in his arms. “I missed you, buttercup.” He said, calling her by her childhood nickname. He started calling her that when she picked out some flowers from their garden and they happened to be buttercups.

Jackie didn’t want to let go from her father’s embrace, but slowly turned to look into the small hospital room, she could see her mother, looking pain and cold.

Her eyes started to water as he came closer to her mother’s bed, she was still alive but looked like she was barely holding on. “Mommy?” She spoke, making her mother awake and open her eyes to see her daughter.

Jackie came closer to her mother and hugged her tightly as she could, she was so weak, but was glad her daughter was sitting next to her. “I’m sorry I didn’t tell you.” Her mother spoke, as she held onto Jackie’s hand.

“Don’t worry about it, what matters is that I’m here for you,” Jackie said, kissing her mother’s hand and wiping her tears.

Jackie shared everything that was going on in her life, now. She even talked about Kenny, to her surprise, her mother said that he would be perfect for her. They played a few games, up until her mother was too weak to do so.

She died 2 months later after their last game of Uno. The last thing Jackie told her was to never give on chasing your dreams. Jackie knew she would never forget, but it made her think about Kenny. He was her new dream now, she needed to share her life with someone and he was perfect for her.

After the funeral, she said her last goodbyes to her father and headed back on the train, even though her mother had passed, she was wanting to get back to Kenny and to tell him how she felt about him.

Going up to their apartment, she was worried that he wouldn’t want to talk to her, after taking the money he gave to her to see her dying mother, but maybe he would. Taking a deep breath, she opened the door, watching Kenny stand in the middle of the studio, painting, he almost dropped his paintbrush when he saw her.

Jackie dropped her bag, and ran to him, embracing into his arms, not caring if he was covered in paint or not. She looked into his eyes and the waterworks just came down. He understood her pain as to lose something, but kept her in his arms.

“I missed you so much, Jackie. You have no idea.” He said, looking into Jackies eyes, wiping away the tears from her face, as he turned to face her to all the work he had done when she was gone. It was all pictures of her.

One of them was when she was puzzled on painting and ended up getting paint on her face. Another was of her dancing. The more she kept looking at the paintings, she realized that he returned the feelings for her, but there was one painting that caught her eye.

It was a painting of them, laying on her bed together, after their first kiss and how she told him about her mother. She didn’t know how he did it, but it was perfect. “I love this one,” Jackie said as Kenny came closer.

“Not as much as I love you,” Kenny spoke as Jackie stared at him in amazement. “I understand if you don’t return the feelings, but I do love you and I just needed to tell you.”

Jackie then pressed her lips against his, embracing his presence and telling him that she accepted his feelings for her. She pulled away, leaning their foreheads together as she smiled. “I love you too.”

Unforgotten – Chapter 32

If you haven’t read Chapter 31, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2020/01/06/unforgotten-chapter-31/

Logan’s P.O.V
“So, what is the plan? What are we going to do about this?” I asked as I crossed my arms and stared at my Aunt Marie, waiting for her to say something that would change my mood that I was currently in. I knew what he wanted, but I wasn’t going to let my poor sister go through what our mother did.

“Well, we just have to keep an eye out for him. I’m sure he’s on his way here.” She said. I rolled my eyes.

“I’m talking about when he gets here. What are we going to do to protect my sister!” I shouted, which I could see how my Aunt was getting scared of me raising my voice, but no one was making a game plan.

I looked over at my father, I could see that he was thinking of a plan or some way that he could protect us from him. I just didn’t know what he wanted with me.

“Logan, that’s all we can do. As long as he doesn’t know how to get in, you two will be safe.” My Aunt tried to explain, I looked over at Athena, as she looked worried. I looked back at our father again, as he finally put his hands down.

“Marie, enough!” He took a deep breath and looked up to her. “We can’t just sit here like ducks, we need a fucking plan, one that will protect my children and you. I’m sure he’s gonna want to go after you, too.” Our father then sat up from his chair and stormed out.

“One way or another, I’m gonna kill him.” He said as he walked out of the room.

I looked over at everyone, they were just as worried as Athena was, expect James. I could see the concern in the eyes as he looked down, holding my Aunt’s belly. I knew he was worried about what would happen if Lucas ever did see her again. Especially with the fact that she’s pregnant.

I looked over at Dean, as he nodded his head for me to follow him, once we left the room, we headed towards his hall. “I have a plan, Logan. Whether our sisters are involved, we will be ready for anything.” As we enter the hall, I saw my father working on some weapons inside his home.

I looked all around the hall and saw decades of different weapon styles and from assassin blades to plain jane pocket knives.

My father looked up to me. “Here’s the plan, but don’t tell your sister.”
___________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
I watched as Dean and Logan left the table hall, but I glanced over at my Aunt Marie. I figured she would have a plan in motion, but nothing she was saying was making me feel any safer.

“Logan’s right so is Dad. We need a plan.” I repeated, but my Aunt Marie just started to cry, holding James’ hand. She looked so sad but kept rubbing her stomach, which was starting to grow, holding a miracle of hers.

“I’m so sorry, but I can’t think of what do to. As long as he doesn’t find out where this place is, you’ll be fine, but then again-” My Aunt Marie paused when my father’s cell phone started ringing, as he must have forgotten about it before he left.

I got up and walked over to it, slowly picking it up and answering it. “Hello?” I said. Something about this called made me shiver.

“Well, well, isn’t it my Athena. You sound just like your mother.” His voice make my skin crawl, knowing the information that I did know about him, it made my blood boil. “Why don’t we finally meet? I would love to see you and your mother again.”

“Why would I want to meet someone like you?” I snapped, but I could hear him chuckling on the other line.

“Well, my sweets, you will meet me real soon, whether you want to or not. If you want your family to live, you’ll do what I say.”

“What makes you think that I’m going to listen to you?” I left the room, waiting for him to answer, but he stayed silent.

“Because I’m already here.” My heart fell, I rushed away, looking back at the door that was keeping us safe, it was opened. Before I could answer, I felt the phone call to the floor and someone grabs me, holding their hand to my mouth.

“Hello, my Athena. Ready to finally be mine?” Lucas said as everything went black.
_____________________________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.
“James, I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. I feel so hopeless.” I said, as soon as everyone left. I knew they wouldn’t want me here when they find out that others could and would help Lucas find this place.

“We will figure out a way, but you should have told them that someone else could’ve told Lucas where this place was,” James spoke, as he held my hand.

I smiled as he placed a kiss on my hand, then placing a kiss on my stomach. “Just focus on this little one, I’ll talk to the others and see if we can come up with something.” He helped me up as we held hands together, but something in my gut was telling me something was wrong.

“Wait a minute,” I stopped to run over to the cell phone that was laying on the ground, but Athena was nowhere to be found. “Where’s Athena?”

I looked over and all around but didn’t find her. I then headed to her hall and ran over to her cottage. I tried to open the door, but it was locked. James finally caught up to me and tried to kick the door open. “It’s spellbound.”

I peeked into the windows and saw Athena tied up to her chair, dressed in her ritual dress. I could see tears falling from her face and blood dripping down from her head.

Then I saw him, he looked at me dead in the eyes, his eyes were coal-black, but he had aged a bit since I last saw him.

“Well, well, isn’t it Marie, the one that promised me I would get Jade, but yet has been getting busy with Mandy’s ex,” Lucas said than he looked over at James. “Boy, James, looks like you both haven’t aged a day. How was it being vampires?”

He grinned as I was shocked, only a few people knew we were vampires, I made sure of that, but how would he know? He was in jail for all those years ago. Jade and Tanner made sure that he wasn’t allowed to get out. Someone must have bailed him out and told him, but who?

“Marie, is that you?” I turned around to the voice that I’ve been missing for years. The voice that I fell in love with, but it couldn’t be so. As I turned around, I saw Eli standing there. “My Marie, my love. I’ve missed you.”

We embraced into a hug, as I couldn’t believe it was so. Tears kept falling down my cheeks, but I kept reliving that flashback of him being staked.

“Y-your alive?” I said as I pulled away and looked at him. He was still the same as I remember, also still a vampire. “I saw you get staked, we both did. How is this possible?”

I pulled away and held onto James. James saw it happen and he knew how heartbroken I was after losing Eli, I shut off my humanity for him, but James helped me regained it again. Without James, I don’t know if I would be able to be without Eli.

“I can’t tell you, but you need to come with me, both of you.” As Eli placed cuffs over our wrists and grabbed us both. “I’m sorry, I’ll explain later, but for now, just go with it.”

The Scars He Left Behind (Friday’s Short Stories)

‘Hey, Dearies! So, this is the first, of many, short stories that I’ll be posting every Friday. I’ll be posting the writing prompt or idea from where I got it from, and then you’ll get to read my version of the story. These are all fiction, nothing is real unless said otherwise. These are something fun to do and if you want to comment or send me a version of your story, from the prompt, I’ll be happy to read it and possibly post it on my blog, if you would like!’ 


Tell the story of a scar, whether a physical scar or emotional one. To be a writer, said Stephen King, “The only requirement is the ability to remember every scar.”

The Scars He Left Behind

Looking up from the stars, Lela was waiting for something to catch her eye, whether it be a shooting star or the moon turning full as it looked down upon her. The full moon gave

Lela a sense of power, made her feel safe.

She usually did this every night, feeling the hot summer day finally cool off and letting the dark sky raise over the town like a blanket, hiding us underneath it. It was her favorite time of day.

Until now.

Things have changed for her, she had a busy plate, going into her 3rd year of high school. She wasn’t a straight-A student but did enough work to make sure she passed her classes. This year was different, not only had she given up on love, but she found it again.

Or so she thought.

It started out so simple, she thought, but how wrong was she. It started with a random message on a chat room, she was on there talking to one of her two best friends about the excitement that happened during lunch, a fight broke out and they got to witness it first hand.

It was the most exciting thing that had ever happened to them on that day, but for Lela, it was him.

The message from him popped up on her screen, she didn’t know what to do, nor react. She never had a guy take interest in her since middle school, but even then, she still didn’t know what to say, nor how to respond.

‘Can you help me meet Sarah? She seemed to log off.’

Little did Lela know that would be the start of a new chapter for her, not her friend Sarah.

‘Can’t you ask her yourself?’

Lela snapped back, thinking that this man wouldn’t want any interest in her. Why would they?

‘Sadly, I can’t seem to find her. I was supposed to meet her at the library, but I can’t seem to find her?’

Lela laughed at the message. She remembered Sarah was meeting up with her mystery guy today, but with midterms just about to start, she ended up setting up her date at the library with him.

Lela decided to stay home since she had to make sure to be home for her younger brother.

‘Didn’t you use her profile picture?’

Lela tried to explain, as much as she didn’t want to continue the conversation, she felt that she had to at least help him. Although, she chuckled at the fact that he didn’t have much common sense and wondered what Sarah saw in him.

She decided to do some snooping of her own and clicked on his profile picture. He looked semi-cute, or average. He wasn’t fat, nor was he too skinny. His dark hair complemented his eyes. As she kept looking, it seems that she found that they had more in common than she thought.

Lela thought he was kinda cute, but when she saw the year of his birth, she froze. Not only was Sarah talking to a much older guy, but a guy that would be legally called a man.

Chills went down Lela’s back as the conversation continued. Not only had it changed from helping him find Sarah, but his interest in her instead.

That was only the beginning.

After that same conversation, things changed. Lela and this man got closer and not even the 3rd day of talking, they finally met. To her mother’s disgrace, she didn’t want to see her 15-year-old daughter with someone who was 5 years older but tried her best to fight it.

She didn’t know what else to do, she banned her from seeing him, but that just made Lela want to be with him much more. The more the mother forbid it, the more she snuck around to see him.

It had been a week together for Lela and him, but in that week she lost so much. She didn’t know how it happened, it just did. His tongue mouthed words that made her jump into his bed. Making it seem that her virginity was something he wanted to take from her. Claim in with the others he took before hers, add it to his collection.

Once it was gone, she never got it back. The worst part is what came after that.

For months, she tried to build a so-called relationship with him, but he didn’t seem invested in her. Instead, his games came before her, the only time he wanted her was when he needed to be pleasured by her.

The times she did nor didn’t, he still went off and found another woman to laid in his bed. Forgive and forget, she thought over and over, the many times that he cheated. She didn’t know what else to do.

The scar.

He left two on that day in June. The heat was too hot to do much, but he still managed to leave a scar on her shoulder. She wanted to spend time with him, wanted to be apart of that world he was so attached too, but instead cut her left shoulder, and left her there, thinking she was wrong.

The second scar ended right in heart, making it seem like she might never find love again. Making it be more impossible or out of reach, just like the stars are from our grasp.

Once Lela had enough, she ended it, walking away from the first relationship she could ever call her own. She always looks down at that scar, to remind her that she is stronger than those dark times from where she got it from.

Looking back at the stars once more, she took a deep breath and smiled. Getting up from the patch of grass she was laying on and standing up tall, ready to walk into her next chapter, even with the scar he gave her.

Katie’s Blog Schedule for 2020

Hey Dearies! I know I’ve been a little late with the beginning of this year, but I wanted to give you another post for what to expect on my blog for 2020!

I know I haven’t been as active as I would like to be, but I’ve planned out a yearly schedule that should change that for this year. If you don’t already know, I’m currently enrolled in college and with that going on and being home with a 2 year, things can get crazy, but I’m going to try my best to stay on task as much as I can!

Make sure you are following me on my Facebook page, I’ll have more of my updates posted on there!

Alright, let’s get this started!

  • Monday’s – Unforgotten
    • I’m going to finish Unforgotten and then hopefully, I will have another story up, but it all depends of what I’ve got in my drive for books that I’ve either started or finished.
  • Tuesday’s -Crafty Sassy
    • This one isn’t going anywhere, but I’m going to mix it up with new patterns and new Top 10’s.
    • My Top 10’s will consist of free patterns that I go looking around on Pinterest.
    • I will also be doing a different crochet square a month, for those looking to start crocheting.
    • This year, I’m trying to get into knitting. I’ve been looking into it for a while, but I might be posting on it, depending on how zoned in I get into it.
  • Thursday’s – Gaming
    • This one isn’t set in stone, but I do want to get back into gaming. It helps me take a breather when I have a lot going on.
    • This mostly will be for Sims, Minecraft, and maybe a few others. I might do a gaming review on some other PC classic’s, such as Diner Dash or Fate. I’ll keep you all posted on that as well!
  • Friday’s – Short Stories
    • This is definitely happening for sure! Last year, I had the temperature blanket to do and I didn’t have enough time to get them out when I wanted to, so make sure to keep a close eye on Friday’s!
    • I’ll be using a website, that generates character names, genres, conflicts, etc, at random and turning them into a story! I also have a few prompts from my own as well that I would love to make into a short story.
    • So, if you miss my writings, this will be a guaranteed thing I will post on Friday!
  • Saturday’s – Reviews
    • I have mentioned that I’ve wanted to do reviews for a while, but haven’t had the time. Well, I’m gonna start too! Every Saturday will have a different review, such as Products, Movies, TV Shows, books, etc.
      • Products
        • This review is for anything that has peeked your interest, such as makeup, kitchenware, baby stuff, toys, or anything that you have thought of buying, but want to know if it’s worth it.
      • Movies
        • I love watching movies, especially with my daughter! So, don’t be surprised if you see a few Disney films and such.
        • The only ones you might not see on here will be anything scary. I don’t do horror, nor do I watch it. (Sorry to the horror fans out there!)
        • There will be a mix of Action, Romance, Comedy(Includes some stand-up), Chick Flix, Adventure, and a mix of kid shows as well.
      • TV Shows
        • Now, this one will have a mix of kids shows as well, since a lot of parents or new parents want to know what’s a good list of shows for their kids to watch. Or for yourself, after the kids have gone to bed.
        • Again, I don’t like anything horror-ish stuff, but don’t be shocked if you see The Walking Dead on here, as well.
        • I’m going to try and pick shows that are completely over, but if they are still running, I’ll comment whether I’m still watching it or not.
      • Books
        • My library is getting bigger by the moment and is the perfect time to get into writing reviews!
        • I know I only did one last year, yes only ONE, but I’m planning on changing that. I want to take more time to read and actually FINISH books that I’ve started.
        • There will be all kinds of genres, I’m willing to dip into more Stephen King type novels as well.
        • I will include a few audiobooks, but I live to read the physical book in person and without staring at a screen to read.
      • Random
        • This can be ANYTHING, and when I mean anything, it could be over game systems, apps, crochet stuff, knitting stuff, shoes, clothes, brands, basically anything that doesn’t fit in the categories above.
        • If you would like to request anything, I will have a post on my Facebook Page, asking at the beginning of the month on what you would like me to review.
        • This isn’t going to be an EVERY month review, but I will keep a list of the most popular and go from there!

Now, let’s talk about some other topics that I haven’t mentioned.

Mom Talk

This is still not going anywhere, I’ll be posting these randomly, since I’m currently raising a toddler, at the moment, so there will be a few posts about this stage and such. So, make sure to look out for potty training, how I deal with toddler fits, and so much more.

WWE

Sadly, I will be deleting all WWE stuff, since I have stopped watching it. It isn’t something I get as pumped up for anymore, sorry to all the fans that followed me for that. I’ll be removing all posts about it, to make room for newer ones.

Podcast

I’ll be getting rid of my podcasts as well, if you want to listen to them, they will be on my Youtube channel. I lost all motivation to start it back up again since most podcasters have one or more guest on their podcast.

My Youtube Channel

I’ll be working harder to post more stuff, such as gaming, crochet, knitting, etc. Anything of the sort, I will have a day of when I will be posting stuff.


Katie’s Craft Studio’s 

People have been asking about this, my mini business, and what’s happening to it. I figured I would answer it on this post as well!

I’m still accepting orders, however, I’ll be posting dates of when I’ll be accepting them, I don’t want to get too overwhelmed. So, when I have classes, I won’t be accepting orders, which will be from January 21 – May 11, of this year.

So, from that timeline, I will not be accepting any orders. I will also make a note of that on my Facebook Page as well.


Again, I would like to thank all of my followers and supports, I couldn’t be doing this without you all! Let’s make 2020 the best year ever!

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

If you haven’t read Chapter 28, here is the link:

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 28

If you haven’t read Chapter 27, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/08/12/unforgotten-chapter-27/

Athena’s P.O.V.
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.
____________________________________________________________________________________________Marie’s P.O.V.
“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.”

“I was.”

“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.”

“Okay,”

“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.”

Unforgotten – Chapter 27

If you haven’t read Chapter 26, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/08/05/unforgotten-chapter-26/

Athena’s P.O.V.
My mind felt completely clear as we started to head over to the field. My Aunt Marie stayed inside, keeping the protection spell going. I held Dean’s hand, walking side-by-side with everyone. I looked over at my brother as he nodded.

The closer we got, we saw more. Hybrids as far as we could see. We didn’t know how many there was, but there were two males that we more in front of the pack. We completely stopped as we heard one of the men talking.

“Why don’t we see if we can work this out?” He said as he and the other man headed closer to us. The one next to us looked familiar to me, but I couldn’t remember where I had known him from. Logan stepped in front of us all.

“You know very well what will happen. Hybrids shouldn’t exist. It’s an unbalance in nature.” Logan spoke as he looked over at Lewy and Colin.

“Your kind isn’t welcome.” Lewy spoke as he looked over at Colin, the both nodded.

“Ah, back then we weren’t, but maybe there is a change of heart. I want to discuss this with Athena.” The man spoke again. Dean stood in front of me.

I looked over at them both, they looked like normal humans, but so didn’t the vampires and werewolf’s. “Speak then.” I said as I stood next to my brother. “Whatever you have to say, say it. I’d like to know who killed my mother.”

“But of course,” He paused, placing his hand on the other man’s shoulder. “Your Ricky did the honors, love.”

My heart dropped as I looked at Ricky. Anger filled my heart as I looked into his eyes. He looked heartbroken. I looked at our brother who looked like he was going to jump and kill him. Before we could stay anything else, Lewy and Colin popped into our minds.

‘Do what you’ve been practicing, once they are set on you guys, we will jump in. Make sure it’s up before we start.’

We all looked at each other and nodded. We gather hands, and starting chanting. I once we started, I could feel the power rushing in out of my body as the power grew stronger.

With James with us, we were stronger than ever.

I peak my eyes over to see the hybrids running at us with full force, but once they even tried to touch us, the were turned to dust. Lewy and Colin lead the others, killing the ones that were trying to flee. I closed my eyes and kept focusing on the spell.

After an hour or so, we ended the spell and looked around. Everything around us had turned into dust, expect the two men. Lewy and Colin brought them over as they both laid on their knees. Ricky kept staring at me, as I gave him a hateful look.

“You know how much trouble you have tried to cause?” Logan spoke at the other man, but still kept glancing at Ricky. I wonder if Ricky was someone we knew.

“I don’t know, just kill me now.” The other man spoke, and so Logan did. He instantly turned to dust.

I looked over at Ricky as his eyes changed from a black to their normal color. “Athena? Is that you?” He asked. I looked confused as I looked over at Logan.

“Do you know him, Logan?” I asked as Logan looked over at Lewy. “What’s going on?”

“Well, Athena, you had me erase him from your memories. If I didn’t, we would’ve lost the war.” Lewy explained as I looked over at Ricky. Still, nothing rang a bell.

“Why would you do that?” Ricky said as he looked at me, heartbroken. “The Athena I knew would never do that. I thought you loved me?”

“Ricky, she only did what was best. After all, you killed our mother, would you want her to remember her first love that murdered our mother?” Logan said as it still burned my mind that this Ricky would do so.

“I-I killed her?” Ricky said, he looked rather surprise. He looked at me. “I’m so sorry, Athena. Please, just kill me.”

I grabbed the sword that killed mother and plunged it into his heart, he instantly turned to dust. I dropped the sword and headed back inside, with Dean running behind me.

“Are you alright?” He asked as I grabbed him and pulled him in for a kiss. I felt his hands around my waist as we kept kissing. He pulled away and leaned his forehead against mine. “What do you want to do to celebrate?” He asked.

“I think I’ve got a few ideas in mind.” I smiled as I grabbed his hand as we headed inside.
__________________________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.
“Ricky killed her?” As a repeated what Tanner just told me.

“So, what happens now?” Tanner asked as James came over, bringing me a glass of water.

“Well, we can’t leave this place until we have replacements, but even then, it’s dangerous since we are one of the most rare types of witches.” I explained as I took a sip of the water. “Lewy and Colin will go back to where they need to go. As for you, I think it would be best for you to pack up any of your stuff and come back to stay with us, if not move closer to us.”

“As long as it’s okay for me to stay here, I will. I rather be with my kids than away from them.” He said.

“Of course it is, there are plenty of rooms in the halls if you wanted to stay with your kids.” Elle came in and added. “After everything that you have been, I think it would be best that you stay by their side.”

Tanner nodded and started to turn away. “Don’t go alone, Tanner. Taken Lewy or Colin with you. I don’t want anything to happened to you.” I said, giving him a hug before he left.

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.

Logan’s P.O.V.

“So, where do you want me to start?” I asked as Roxi was sitting next to me.

“About my brother, why is he involved too?” Roxi asked. Elle handed me a glass of water as I took a sip. “Just start from the beginning.”

“Well, everything was black, then I was someone’s eyes. I was in Ricky’s point of view. I noticed him looking in a mirror, very different from when we last seem him. He’s buff and strong. He was talking to a man, who I think put us in this vision thing, whatever it’s called.”

“Controlled Vision Curse, is what it was.” Elle interrupted. “Whoever had you both in a spell, had your DNA. It’s the only way to do so.”

“Anyway, it looked like his father or something. Then I turned and saw his mother, strapped to the chair, she was still alive. I wanted to help her, I could feel that he wanted to help her too, but he didn’t. He just watched her get beaten.” I looked over at Roxi,

“Then your brother came in and slammed something in her stomach, and then slowly pulled it out. Once it was out, they started talking. Your brother had a few vampires, that he got evolved with, to side with the hybrids, and they changed them all, they were just waiting for them to be strong enough do to so.”

I looked over to my Aunt Marie, Elle, James, and my dad. “They are building an army and they are coming here.”

“Why would they want to tell us they are coming here?” Elle asked as I looked at my Aunt Marie. “I figured they would come here.”

“No, they are coming here, they are just bluffing because they are going to go to their allies and convince them to join.” Aunt Marie spoke as I saw someone coming over to us.

“Oh, but why would we want to join them? I like being a bloodsucker.” A man with long blond hair and pale skin came towards us, he flashed a smile and showed his fangs clear as day. “Elle, my dear, it has been centuries, but you still don’t look a day over 100.” He approached Elle and kissed her hand.

“Oh, Lewy, it’s so good to see you again. I’m glad you were able to come.” Elle said smiling and hugging him.

“But of course, I’m not going to let those halflings try and take over.” Lewy said, as I noticed his eyes were as red as blood. We laid eye contact with each other, but his eyes gazed over to my Aunt Marie instead. “Marie, I’m so sorry about your maker, but I heard he taught you well.”

“He did, but I’m no longer have to worry about being in the sunlight, anymore.” She smirked as he laughed.

“That’s right, I heard something of the lines that 4 witches were able to turn 2 vampires into humans. I can’t wait to meet them all.” Lewy laid his eyes on both Roxi and I. “As I can see 2 out of the 4, where are the other 2?”

“We had a complication today. Him and his twin sister were trapped in a Controlled Vision Curse, but his sister, Athena, got the worse of it.” Elle explained. as we saw another figure coming towards us.

“And this is why I prefer being a wolf.” I looked up as a tanned male, with black hair and tattoos covering his shoulders, came closer. His eyes were yellow, but changed back to brown. “Ah, Lewy, I could smell you before I arrived.”

“I wanted to get here first before your stench presented itself, thank you.” Lewy said, smirking down at the werewolf. “Let’s not argue, as we have business to handle, Collin.”
Collin looked over at all of us and then looked over at Elle. “So, let’s get to business, shall we?”
________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.

Blood. Was all I could think of. Every time I closed my eyes, all I could picture was blood. Ricky’s mom had somehow managed to still be alive, I just couldn’t believe it. As I saw her vision, I saw Ricky. My heart felt so warm, but he had a deathly stare in his eyes. I didn’t recognize him.

The best friend that I’ve been in love with, was dead to me. I didn’t like the way he acted, as I watched from his mother’s eyes. He was heartless and cold. I never thought that he would turn out to be that way. It broke my heart.

But, the blood. The pain of being stabbed by a metal pipe in my stomach. The blood that was all over me, as I woke from the vision. I could handle blood, but the thought that the stab was from Ricky’s mother, I didn’t want to even think about it.

Dean brought me into my hall and walked into my house, as I looked dazed. I tried to stare away from his hands, as they were covered in blood. Not just anyone’s blood, but my blood. I looked away from him, as he sat me down in my chair, handing me a wet washcloth.

“Here, you can wash the blood off yourself, I can go get you a pair of clean clothes,” Dean spoke, as he was now on his knees looking into my face. Before I could speak, I heard coughing. As I turned, my mother stood in the doorway, her eyes red from crying.

“Can you give us a minute?” my mother asked as Dean stood up and nodded. He walked into another room, as soon as he shut a door, my mother came over and started to clean off the blood from my skin. “You both are coming home. I can’t sit here and watch you two scare me like that! You are only 16 and should be worrying about what colleges to go to or what you want to do in life, not trying to protect the world! Pack your things, we are leaving tonight.”

She got up and grabbed a bag and started clearing out the stuff I did have set up. I finally realized what she was doing and ripped the bag from her grasp. It startled her, as I’ve never done that to her before.

“No, I am going to do what I was born to do. I was born to keep this world at peace. Don’t you understand that I can never leave this place, only once on my birthday and if I do leave, I have to protect myself because I am a target, as well as Logan, mom.” I paused and dropped the back on the chair. “I did something amazing today, I helped Aunt Marie and James become human again. Logan and I did it because we were chosen to do so.”

“I know and I thank you for it, but you still are coming with me, you aren’t 18 and your brother and you can and will come home. Have a normal teenage life like I did. Not all of this!” My mom replied.

“I will have a normal teenage life, mom, but here. I’ll still be learning, but what I need to learn to protect you all and keep the peace. I need to be here because Dean, Roxi, and Logan depend on me. Aunt Marie and James depend on me too. I know you don’t understand, but I’ve come to terms with it and I want to help.”

“So, I can find out that you’re pregnant?” She blurted out. I knew she was going to bring up Dean, I had a feeling. “You don’t know what love is, Athena. If you think this guy wants to be with you, you are wrong. It’s all just a crush and you know it! I will not watch my daughter become 16 and pregnant!” She yelled as I stared back at my mother.

“I may not know what love is, but I know what I feel for Dean, it’s real to me. I know better than to jump into bed with some guy. Dean’s different, he may not look like a nice guy, but he is to me. He’s been by my side as we both go through something together.” I said as I noticed Dean’s head popping out from the door.

My mother turned and looked over at him and then back to me. “Fine, then you can make your own choices.” She said before storming out of my place.

Dean came out of the room and walked over to me. I looked at him and smiled. “Sorry, you had to hear that,” I said as he grabbed my hands and kissed them.

“Nah, don’t be sorry. I liked what I heard at the end.” He replied as I wrapped my arms around his neck and smiled. He leaned in and brushed his lips over mine, once more than pulled on my lip, as he pulled away. “I’ll go wait outside while you change.”

He gave me one more kiss and then smiled as he walked outside. I could still feel the excitement that he gave me, still sitting on my lips. He actually made me forgot what had happened with the blood earlier.

I quickly got changed and then headed outside myself. Dean sat, waiting for me at the bridge, he smiled when he saw me and then grabbed my hand, as we headed back to the main hall to figured out what our next step was.

Marie’s P.O.V
As I laid on the bed, in my hall, trying to catch my breath. James rolled over and laid his head on my chest. I smiled. It felt good to feel like a human, although, I’ll miss being a vampire, just because you never get tired.

“Wow, it feels like a long time since I’ve actually had to catch my breath.” James chuckled, tilting his head up to look at me.

“I know. I just can’t believe it.” I said, sitting up, grabbing a sheet to cover myself, as I got off of the bed. “Now, we really need to get you prepared.” I grabbed James’ pants and underwear and threw them on him.

He grabbed them and got out of bed to put them on. “Fine, but we are taking a break and doing that again.” He smirked. I rolled my eyes.

I quickly grabbed my clothes and threw them on, then remaking the bed, again. I felt his arms wrapped around my waist, as I tried to make the bed. “James, we really need to focus,” I said as he turned me to face him.

“I know, but this is exciting. We have been dreaming of this since we were both turned. I know things were different when we were human before, but my feelings haven’t changed and we need to tell them, Marie.” James said as I nodded.

As much as I want to tell them, I’m not sure my sister-in-law will really understand. Back when we first met, James was in love with Jade and left me to be with her. After she chose my brother, James went down a bad hole but managed to send me a message before he overdosed. I turned him and taught him the ways of being a vampire.

After being by ourselves for a few years, things started to change and we both fell for each other. We would talk about having a family, living in the same cottage that we were and being together for the rest of our life. We never thought that we would become human again, let alone be a part of the spiritual circle.

“We will, I promise. Let’s just take care of one thing at a time, okay?” I said as he pressed his lips against mine. I pulled away and smiled. “Now, back to work.”

Before we got over to the table to continue, Tanner busted through the door. “Marie, it’s the twins.” As I looked at my brother, he had a worried look on his face. I knew something was wrong. James and I quickly followed my brother.
__________________________________________________________________________

As we got into the main hall, Athena and Logan were laying on the floor, it looked like they are sleeping, but their eyes were open and completely white. I knew what was going on, they were having a vision. Not just any normal vision, but one that they are apart of, someone put them into this.

“How long have they been like this?” I looked up and asked Elle. I saw Jade hovering over both of the twins. “Don’t touch them, they are having a vision.”
Jade’s eyes grew, as I could see the fear in them. My brother, stood by her, as I looked over at Elle. “They just started.”

“What’s going on with them?” Tanner asked as I kneed down, looking over Athena and Logan. “They just dropped to the ground as if they were shot.”

“Someone put them into this spell. James and I might be able to break it, but we need to put them in a circle of salt, now.” I said as I stood up and Elle handed both James and I salt. We poured it around them, once the circle was complete. their eyes closed but still weren’t awake.

“Whoever was controlling them, wasn’t as strong as I thought,” Elle spoke as she looked over to me. Dean and Roxi ran over to see what was going on. I looked up at both of them and looked over to Elle. “You think that will work?”

“There’s only one way to find out,” I said, looking over to Dean and Roxi again. “I’ll explain what happened to them, but you both need to do something for them, right now.”

“Anything,” Dean spoke. I looked at Dean.

“You need to kiss Athena.” I paused and looked over at Roxi, “And you need to kiss Logan.”

Jade looked at me like I was crazy and pulled Dean away from kissing Athena. “You are not going to make them kiss my children while they are sleeping. They don’t even know each other! This isn’t right!” Jade yelled at me.

“Do you want your children to wake up? This is just a theory that we can try, we need to get them up. The other leaders will be here soon, we don’t have time to waste.” I replied, I then nodded over to Dean and Roxi, as they both nodded back.

Once Roxi’s lips met Logan’s his eyes fluttered awake, we all heard him take a deep breath in. Jade and Tanner rushed over to make sure he was alright, and carefully sat him up. Logan quickly looked over at his sister, with panic in his eyes. “We need to wake her!” He screamed, Tanner pulled Logan back.

Dean then pressed his lips against Athena’s, but nothing happened. “Why didn’t she wake up?” Dean asked as Athena didn’t move. Dean tried kissing her again, but nothing happened. That’s when I noticed the blood coming from her stomach.

“Fuck,” James spoke as he noticed the blood, Dean pressed his hands on her wound, as Elle grabbed towels to help keep the pressure. “We need to heal her, Marie.”

“I know,” I said, getting down on my hands and knees. “Dean, I need you to move your hands.”

“No, I’m not going to let her bleed to death.” He said, as tried moving his hands. “Teach me how to heal her.”

“There’s no time! She’s bleeding out right now.” I pushed him aside and closed my eyes.

“Beatus esse: obsecro, sana quod” I felt the power flow through my hands and onto Athena. I heard Athena breathing, again, as my eyes opened.

I saw her eyes open but saw that something happened to her, something she saw. She turned to look over at her brother, as they both held each other in their arms. “What happened to us?” Athena spoke as her eyes met with mine.

She looked down and saw the blood that was over her body, as she started to freak out. I grabbed her hand and calmed her. “Take a deep breath, and look under your shirt. I took care of it.” She lifted her shirt and showed her stomach, which had nothing there, just dried blood. I saw the relief in her eyes.

Athena looked over at Logan. “We need to tell them, what happened,” Athena said as Logan nodded.

“Athena, why don’t you go clean up and relax, Logan will tell us,” I said as Athena frowned, Dean, helped her up and walked with her to her hall.

“I’ll be with Athena,” Jade spoke, walking with Dean and Athena. Once they left the room, we looked over at Logan.

“You guys aren’t going to like this,” Logan said as his eyes where glazing straight as Roxi.

Athena’s P.O.V.
After I left Dean’s hall, I hurried over to my hall, my parents were looking around, I can see the smile in my dad’s face when he saw me. I ran up to him and hugged me. He squeezed tightly and I looked up and saw a tear escape from his eyes. I’ve never seen my dad cry a lot, but this made me cry.

He finally got his sister back. I finally got my aunt back. No longer was she a vampire, but she was one of the two leaders that had the Spiritual element.

“I’m so proud of you both.” My father said as he let go of the hug and looked into my eyes. “I never thought that it would’ve worked and I would get my sister back to normal, well almost.” He chuckled. I smiled.

I looked over at my mom, she didn’t seem to say much but nodded. I hugged my dad back, again. I was glad that he was proud of us, I just wished my mother felt the same way.

“So,” My father pulled away. “What’s next?”

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“Your brother told us about Ricky and your visions.” I froze, I didn’t think that Logan would mention this stuff to our dad, but I didn’t want to give off the vibe that I was afraid. It didn’t feel normal to talk about these kinds of things with them.

“Well, the first thing we had to do was turn the vampire’s humans. Next, we have to have a meeting about what to do next.” I said as I looked over at my mom. She had tears falling from her eyes.

“Is it true?” I was confused, what was she talking about? “Is she really gone?” She asked again.

Then it hit me, she was talking about Ricky’s mom. She was best friends with his mom and they had us kids grow up together. The thing that sucked was that I hoped she wasn’t dead, but I didn’t want to give my mother hope if she was still alive.

“I’m not sure if my visions are true or not, but I don’t want to-” I cut off by another voice.

“Give you hope.” I turned and saw my Aunt Marie coming towards us. “Which at this point, we are still unsure what Ricky’s father really wants to do.” I smiled at my Aunt Marie, as she didn’t look quite as pale, but she looked glowing. “Athena, we are having a meeting and have to go.”

“Just like that, you are going to take my child away from me, again?” My mother bluntly said.

“I’m not taking your children away, they were chosen to be who they are today. You should be proud that your twins are doing everything they can to keep this world’s supernatural balanced.” Aunt Marie snapped back at my mother.

My mother stayed slight as we both walked out of my hall. “I’m sorry for snapping at your mother, but she needs to realize that there are worse things going on than her problems.”
______________________________________________________________________________________
“So, Ricky and Ricky’s father could be a hybrid? What the hell is that?” James asked as he looked up at my Aunt. “How many supernatural do we have?”

“James, I know this is a lot of information that we are pushing on you, but you need to focus on the bigger picture.” Elle interrupted, as she then looked over at my Aunt Marie.

“Which is?” James chimed in again.

“Hybrid is a half werewolf, half vampire. They are a lot stronger than a regular werewolf and vampire because they have both of the strengths of both supernatural. For centuries, they have been wanting to take over our world completely. We have been able to keep peace among the vampires and werewolves for centuries because they want the same thing, peace.” Aunt Marie explained.

“Now, if Athena’s visions are true, he is creating an army of hybrids, which we must make sure that is destroyed. I’ve gotten in contact with the pack leader of werewolves and the Queen of fangs. They will be here to talk about the opinions on what to do next.”
James rubbed his eyes, still trying to process all the information that is going on. I looked over at Dean as he gave me a smirk.

“Basically, we will be going into war with the hybrids?” Logan asked.

“Yes, but with the help of our allies, we should be able to destroy them with no problem at all,” Elle spoke as she turned to me. “We need you to let us know when you have another vision, knowing how many have been created, will determine everything.” I nodded.

“With that being said, practice your magic, for the time being, I’ll be teaching James and practicing myself. Elle will let us know when our allies are here and we will be back here to figure out our next move.” My Aunt Marie said as we all got up from the chairs and started to head toward the Main Hall.

Elle stopped Dean and me before leaving. “I know you have the spark together.” She bluntly spoke as I looked at her, surprised. “As I told Logan and Alexa, be very careful. It’s been very rare for Fire and Earth element witches to have a spark, but it’s not all a bad thing.”

“You two are very powerful if you can work together. Which can help us when it comes time to destroy the hybrids. I suggest you get stronger together since Dean is a little more advanced, he will help you get strong quicker.” Elle said as she gave us a soft smile and left the meeting room.

It was just Dean and I. As I started to walk to the door, he grabbed my wrist. I looked over at him as he came closer to my face, he pressed his forehead against mine. I leaned in, surprising him, and pressed my lips against his.

He smiled as I pulled away. “I’m sorry, were you going to do that?” I smirked as he chuckled.

“Took the words right out my mouth,” Dean smirked.

Unforgotten – Chapter 18

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

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.

Unforgotten – Chapter 17

If you haven’t read Chapter 16, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/04/29/unforgotten-chapter-16/

Logan’s P.O.V.
“We really have to stop,” I said, pulling myself away from Roxi. “I know you want to go further, so do I, but you know we can’t.”

She frowned. “Alright then, I’ll see you tomorrow.” She said, but before she could walk away, I grabbed her wrist and placed my lips on hers. She smiled as I pressed our foreheads together.

“Good night.” I saw, as her smile grew.

“Night.” Roxi walked away, as I looked over at the ocean. My phone started to ring.
I saw the caller I.D. pop up as ‘Unknown’, I let it go to voicemail. As I walked over to my place, my phone went off again. Same person, but I sent it to voicemail. Who the hell would be calling me from an unknown number?

It rang once more, I was so frustrated I ended up picking it up. “Who the hell is this?” I asked as I waited for someone to answer.

“Logan, it’s me, Ricky.” I couldn’t believe it, but Athena did say that he could still be alive, I just thought that it wasn’t true, but now, I don’t know what to believe.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
“Are you really alive?” I heard Logan ask, but I didn’t have time to chit chat.

“Yes, but I can’t talk for long. You need to listen to me.” I said as I paused. “My dad, isn’t who he says he is. He did something to me and now, I’m going to be set free.”

“That’s great, right?” Logan said, but he cut himself off. “Ricky, what do you mean he did something?”

I looked over and saw shadows coming closer towards the room I was stuck in. “I’ve got to go, but I needed to warn you guys both.” I paused. “Whatever you do, kill me. Tell Athena that I love her.” I hung up and smashed the phone into the floor. I quickly picked up the pieces and threw them in the trash.

I looked over and my father was staring me down, holding a set of clothes. “Now my boy, it’s time to do me a favor.” An evil grin appeared on his face, as I felt chills running up my back.

Two men dressed in black entered the room, I backed away from them as much as I could, but they grabbed me.

“Let go of me!” I snapped as I threw the guy on the left on the ground, as the other guy was trying to restrain me. Holy crap, how did I get this strong? I looked over as the guy on the left got back up and stuck a needle into my neck. “I won’t let you get away with this.” I said, staring into my father’s eyes.

My body started to weaken as I tired to break through from it. “But you see.” My father spoke, as my eyes started to close. “I already have.” He laughed as I closed my eyes once more and fell to the ground.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
I ran as fast as I could, running out of my hall. I passed Roxi as I heard her call my name. I ran into my sister’s hall as I saw she was sitting on her swing with Dean.

“Athena, it’s Ricky.” I spoke as I stopped to catch my breath. “You were right, he’s alive.”

She stood up, as I could see the shocked look on her face. She never thought that her visions would be true, but Ricky was alive. I heard him, but I cringed at the fact that we would have to kill him. I wanted to know if there was a way to fix him.

“H-how do you know?” She asked as I pulled out my phone.

“He called me, but listen we don’t have much time. We have to tell the others.” I said, grabbing her arm as Dean approached us.

“What do you mean to tell the others? What’s going on?” Dean asked as I sighed. I looked into my sister’s eyes, as I didn’t want to tell her that we really had to kill him, but I wanted to give her hope.

“Just, let’s go into the main hall and I’ll explain it.” I spoke as we all rushed into the main hall, Roxi was waiting for us as was Elle, Roxi must of told her somethin was going on with me.

I saw that in Elle’s eyes, she could tell something was wrong, just from looking at me. She nodded to me as I grabbed my cell phone. “Call her.” Elle spoke as everyone else looked at her. I nodded and called our Aunt Marie.

It rang once before she picked up. “Logan, is everything alright? We are almost there.”

“I’m not sure, but you are on speaker.” I said as I took a deep breath. “I got a call from Ricky, he’s alive, but he told me that his father wasn’t who he thought he was. So, with that being said, Athena was right, but she was also right that he did do something to Ricky. I’m not sure what it was, but he couldn’t explain it to me.” I said as Athena looked worried.

“Did he say anything else before you got off the phone with him?” Aunt Marie asked as I didn’t want to say it, but I could see Athena’s eyes were starting to get watered.

“He said that whatever we do, we would have to kill him.” I said, Athena started to cry, as Dean held her in his arms. “Unless Elle or know might know if we can help him or not.”
Elle looked puzzled, as I could see she was trying to think. “Now, Athena, what was it that you saw happened to Ricky.” Elle asked as she quickly move over to her, pulling her hand into hers. “Relax and think back to that. I’ll be able to pull as much information as I can.”

Elle had her eyes closed for a second or two before opening them and looking over to me. “It’s just as I feared.” She said, walking over to me and taking the phone from my hand. “Marie, dear. Get here as fast as you can. We need to try and turn you human before they get here.” Elle hung up the phone and handed it back to me.

“Okay, seriously, what the hell is going on?” Dean spoke up as I looked over at Elle.

“You’re uncle just created the first hybrid of the century. Get into your spiral outfits and we will meet back in the Spirit Hall. We are doing this for real. Be ready.” Elle walked back over to the potions and grabbed a purple vial, handing it to me. “Logan, take this. You and Athena are the only ones that can leave. Get ready and make sure to give this to your Aunt.” I nodded as Elle quickly got to work on something.

I walked over to Athena and hugged her. “Get ready, I’ll met up with Athena. You, Dean, and Roxi keep looking for a cure for a hybrid. I don’t want to lose our best friend a second time.” I pulled away and gave her a faint smile.

“No, I’ll go up there with you.” She argued, I nodded and we all rushed off to get ready.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
“Elle, be honest with me.” I asked as she was gathering the candles for the ritual. “Do we have a choice? Or do we really have to kill him?” She kept gathering things as I waited for her to reply.

“Sadly, we must. It is the only way we will be able to keep peace on this Earth.” She looked over at me. “We have made bargains with the Vampires and Werewolf clans. As long as we can live civilly with everyone, no harm would come to anyone. Hybrids are a mix of both and we have tried many times to welcome them to live in peace with us, but they have refused.”

I didn’t understand why this was such a big deal. I could see that Elle noticed my frustrations, but Ricky wouldn’t be like that, at all.

“I know your friend has been a wonderful best friend, but when he is a Hybrid, it’s harder for the good to show from the bad. Hybrids have been wanting to control all for centuries. That’s why they are forbidden, but somehow, someway, they are reborn. We have to fight to keep the peace, otherwise, this world would be destroyed.” She gave be a comforting smile. “There is pure good in you, Logan, but this is something we can not save.”

I walked away from her and headed outside the tree. I stood there, in my ritual clothes, looking back at the parking lot, waiting for my Aunt. I didn’t understand why we couldn’t live in peace with them all. It just doesn’t make any sense.

There has to be a way, whether I create a way or not, but there has to be some way to help Ricky, or change his Hybrid ways.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
“Where’s Logan?” I asked, as I entered back in the main hall. Dean and Roxi were looking through scroll and books to see if anything could help us with Ricky. I didn’t want us to kill him, just because of who he changed to be.

“He just left the tree.” Roxi spoke, as she didn’t look up at me. I quickly left the tree, Logan was standing there, looking over at the parking lot. My mother, father, James, and Aunt Marie, were all there.

I wanted to run in my father’s arms, but I stood and waited for them to walk over to us. I was nervous to see my mother. Last time we both saw her, she had left us to go back home. I was afraid of what she was going to stay.

“Athena, take this.” Elle said as I walked back in the stairs and grabbed what she had. “Tell your parents to put these on, and they may enter. Here is another vial for James, as well.” I smiled back at her as she nodded to me and went back inside.

I stood next to Logan as our parents came up to hug us. “My babies!” My mother said, wrapping her arms around both of us. Logan pulled away and handed our Aunt Marie the vial.

“We have to all get inside. There is something coming.” Logan said, as I handed our parents the necklace and James the other vial. “Keep your necklaces on at all times.” My father nodded, but my mother’s expression changed from being happy, to being worried, and maybe a little angry.

“We will explain inside.” I told her as our parents put the necklaces on. “Please, we need to get inside now.”

Aunt Marie and James drank the vials and we all entered inside the tree. The entrance closed shut, as we all were in. Elle was waiting for us. Aunt Marie gave her a hug, but Elle pulled away. “Now is not the time for hugs.”

“I know, where do you want me?” Aunt Marie asked, as Elle nodded towards the Spiritual Hall, but before Aunt Marie left, Elle looked over at James.

“You, follow her. You shall be changed to be human as well.” Elle said, surprising Logan and I, as she spoke. “Now, listen. You two must stay here, for now. Until it is safe. The Water and Earth hall are your children’s rooms, you may go and visit, but your children have a ritual to complete. The Spiritual Hall is off limits.”

My father nodded, as did my mother, she seemed scared, but my father held her hand. “We have to go, but we won’t be long,” I said as Logan and I started to head for the Spiritual Hall. I was stopped by someone grabbing my arm.

“You need to tell us what is going on, Athena.” My mother said, as her grip got tighter. I pulled my arm loose from her grasp and sighed.

“Ricky is alive, but something evil has happened to him. Aunt Marie has to become the leader of the Spiritual Element, so we can hopefully stop him but at this moment.” I pause and took a deep breath.

“We have to kill him.” Saying the words stung me as my heart ache. Never in a million years did I ever think I would have to end up killing my best friend and my first love.

Unforgotten – Chapter 16

If you haven’t read Chapter 15, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/04/22/unforgotten-chapter-15/

Athena’s P.O.V.
As we all entered the Spiritual room, there were two other doors inside, they were both closed shut. We kept heading down the same hallway. Logan walked beside me as Roxi and Dean followed behind us.

Once we enter, the room was all stoned, the walls each had a symbol of the elements and a piece of the elements on each stone.

“Head over to your elements and stand on the stone,” Elle said as we all went to each of our stones. I stood on mine, as it glowed. Dean was right across from me, as I watched his stone glow. I looked over at my brother, as he was already glowing. I looked towards the other side and saw Roxi’s stone glow.

Elle then handed me a large green candle, and others their colors too. My candle had carved in designs that represented the Earth.

I looked across at Dean and he was handed his red candle, he took the other hand and lit the candle. He saw my amaze as he smirked. I focused on the wick of my candle as it finally lit, but the flame was green.

“Now, since Athena has both Earth and Spirit as her elements, she will begin the ritual.” I was confused, I didn’t expect that I would be doing the entire ritual. Elle looked over at me and smiled. “Athena, now, you will chant ‘Ego autem in terra circulus receperint.’.

I took a deep breath. “Ego autem in terra circulus receperint.” I spoke as the flame became stronger on my candle.

“Now, go to Roxi, leaving your candle on the stone. Chant ‘Nunc receperint Aeris circulus’.” Elle said as I placed my candle onto my stone. I stepped off the stone and headed towards Roxi, she gave me a soft smile as I chanted.

“Nunc receperint Aeris circulus.” As I took the candle from her and said. The flame grew as I handed the candle back to her.

“Now, to Dean. Do the same as before and chant. ‘Nunc receperint pinguibus ignis Adfixus circulus.'”

As I headed towards Dean, I also took his candle and spoke. “Nunc receperint pinguibus ignis Adfixus circulus.” His candle did the same as the past candles, as I handed it back to him.

I then headed over to my brother as he gave me a smile. “Chant ‘Nunc receperint aqua circulus.'” I chanted as I held his candle. I handed it back to him and then turned to the middle of the room. Where the Spirit element was, I stepped on the stone, it glowed, just like the others.

I bent down and picked up the Spirit candle, as I lit it. I looked over at Elle, as she nodded. “Now chant ‘Nunc receperint Spiritus circulus.'”

I closed my eyes and chanted. “Nunc receperint Spiritus circulus.”

The felt a wind blowing towards us, as I opened my eyes, everyone else was getting the same thing. “What’s happening?” I heard Logan shout, as I looked over to Elle, as she didn’t seem afraid.

The wind finally stopped as all of our candles blew out. The only thing that was still lighting up was our stones.

“We have done it!” Elle shouted. “You all have performed the ritual and did very well for your first one.”

“Did we do anything?” Roxi asked.

“You summoned the elements for a blessing. We needed to make sure you knew how to do this ritual before we bring in the vampirism cure. You may all leave.” Elle spoke as we all started to leave to our elemental rooms.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________
When I finally got into my little cottage. I looked through my clothes and pulled out a pair of sweats and a tank top. I quickly changed, but when I walked back into my living room, Dean was sitting in my giant comfortable chair.

“Well, hello.” He said as stood up from the chair.

“Are you just going to keep coming in without knocking?” I asked as I headed over to get myself a drink.

“Why? Does it bother you?” He smirked. I grabbed a bottle of water from my fridge and looked over at him.

“Do I come to your place and walk in randomly?” I snapped as he chuckled.

“No, but you could.” He said as a grin appeared on his face.

“What do you want?” I asked, as I walked over to the chair he was sitting in, he followed me and stood in front of me.

“I wanted to tell you that you did amazing in there.” He said as I could felt my cheeks blush a little.

“Thanks.” I paused as he pulled a chair in front of me and sat in it backward. “Is that all you wanted to say?” I asked. I had a feeling he wanted to talk to me more.

“Well, I was wondering if we could talk about the other day.” He asked as I got up from the chair and walked away from him. I didn’t want to talk to him about it. It was embarrassing to me that he knew that about me. “I just wanted to say that I’m sorry. I don’t know what it is about you, but I’m like drawn to you.”

I came over to me and wrapped his arms around me. “I know you feel it too. I can feel the way you are when I’m around you. You want me, but don’t know why.” He spoke, looking into my eyes.

“But why do we feel this way?” I said as he put his forehead against mine.

“I don’t know, but I want to find out.” He spoke as brushed his lips against mine. They were soft, but not as intense as the ones before were. This side of him was different. He pulled away, as I felt a smile crawl on my face. “Can I stay with you, tonight? I won’t do anything. I just want to hold you in my arms.”

Having Dean hold me in his arms sounded wonderful, but Ricky’s face popped in my mind. I didn’t know where he was, but I couldn’t save him. It felt wrong. I pushed away from Dean. “No, I can’t.”

I headed away from him, leaving my cottage and heading for the main hall. I looked around and saw Elle, sweeping the room.

“Athena, something wrong?” She said, looking up from sweeping. I sat down around the fountain. I gave her a small smile.

“I’m fine, just a lot of thinking,” I replied. She came over and sat down beside me.

“I sense you have a question. Is it something I can help you with?” She asked. As I looked into the fountain.

“It might be,” I said, feeling the water with my hands. I looked up at her. “Can we have a bond with other elements?”

She sighed and nodded. “Yes, I didn’t want to tell you all, but each generation of new elements have a soul mate. Especially, Spirit, that’s why there are two doors. There isn’t just one, that is why your aunt needs to become human again.”

“What about Dean and Roxi’s older brother?” I asked.

“That really isn’t their brother, it is their Uncle. They call him a brother because their parents died when they were very young and their Uncle took them in.” She sighed and stood up. “Sadly, he was turned into a vampire. Once he becomes human, his evil ways will hopefully disappear, but if not. You all must be prepared.” She got back to sweeping.

“Why do we have to be prepared?” I asked, but she was silent. “Okay, if you can’t tell me that, but will anything happen to us if we, you know, do anything together?” My cheeks got red, as I saw Dean come into the hall.

Elle looked over at me and then at Dean. “No, just take this. Because you are both more of the rare ones, conceiving a child is very easy, but we need to wait until we have everyone before you two start doing what I know you want to do.”

She gave me a small little white book. “What’s this?”

“You’ll know when you start opening it, but please wait,” Elle said as she kept sweeping. I looked over at Dean and walked past him.

“Think about it. I’ll come running if you need me.” He said as I kept walking away from him.

Unforgotten – Chapter 15

If you haven’t read Chapter 14, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/04/15/unforgotten-chapter-14/

Ricky’s P.O.V.
It’s been almost a week since I found out my mother died, frankly, I’m more pissed at myself for this. All of this change, I’m going through, is a lot to take in. I sort of wonder if this was how Athena was feeling? Finding out all her parent’s past secrets and not knowing how to take all this information in.

I miss her. I really do. My father said that she died in a fire, but I know she couldn’t have because her Aunt Marie and James would make sure they came out safe and sound. Then again, another part of me doesn’t think they did make it out alive.

I looked around the room and saw my father approaching, he had an evil grin and plate of food. The only thing that was making me even get closer to him, is that I’ve been starving for days and those steaks look really good.

“Ricky, good to see you’re in a wonderful mood.” He smirked as I gave him a dirty look, approaching the double sided see through glass. He slid the plate under the small opening, the smell was consuming my nose with flavors, as my mind thought of what it would taste like, making my mouth water. “Eat, this is the only time you’ll get to eat, for now.”

I sat down and started taking a bite into the steak. I had no fork or knife, so I felt like I was eating it like a beast. Once I swallowed, he sat down on the other side. I thought I was going to be able to eat in peace, guess I was wrong. “What do you want?” I snapped.

“Nothing, how’s that steak? I had one of my chiefs prepare it for you.”

“Fine, when am I getting out of here? Or you going to let me starve to death.” I snapped at him again, taking another bite of my steak. What did he want with me? I just wanted to leave so I could find Athena.

“Soon. I won’t tell you when, but you’ll know when I give you a new set of clothes.” He then grabbed something from his pocket and slid it across the table to me. It was a photo, I glanced at it and realized it was a photo of Athena’s father, Tanner and her mother walking away from him. You can see the RV in the back, but I didn’t see Athena or Logan.

Hell, I didn’t even see James, all I saw was her Aunt Marie, in the front seat.
I slid the photo back over. “Where’s Athena?”

“She’s dead like I told you. I had someone locate them and this is what they captured. It seems that if Jade couldn’t handle what was going on with her children and had to leave.”

I shocked me that he knew who’s Athena and Logan’s parents were. “How did you know her name?”

He stood up from the chair and looked over at him. “I’m the one who killed her older sister.”
________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.

All four of us were woken up at about the same time. Elle had come in early and left a new outfit for me to put on. It was something out of the Enchanted Forest, like a mix of Poison Ivy, but with a little bit more details.

It was a green dress that had chains of vines wrapping all the way up both of my arms. The dress was very thin but still showered in different greens and nature colors, wrapping all the way around my body. My stomach was showing, which I was a little uncomfortable doing.

My shoes, weren’t really shoes, more like Greek sandals that wrapped all the way up to my shin. I also had a vine, flower, and leaves infused like a crown, but it was more like one of those hippy bands.

As I looked at myself through the mirror, I started to miss my mother. I wanted her to see how proud she would be of me and how far I’ve come from it. I knew she wouldn’t understand. She never took the time to understand, especially with all of this that we were learning.

I was about to go meet the others when someone hugged my waist. I turned my head to see Dean on my shoulder. “Maybe we should not go and stay here, instead.” He whispered in my ear.

I pulled his arms from me and left my cottage. I didn’t understand why he wanted to be around me. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted him to be around me, but not after last night. I hated when people found out I was a virgin. It was embarrassing.

Walking down my path, I felt him grab my arm. “Look, I’m sorry about last night, alright?” I looked into his eyes and didn’t know if he was just saying that or he really meant it. I gave him a dirty look and pulled my arm from his grasp.

“What is your deal!?” I yelled at him. “What do you want from me!?” He just stood there and stared at me, I waited to see if he would answer me, but I didn’t want to deal with him any further today. I turned around, but he stopped me again and pushed our lips together.

I pulled away and slapped him across the face. I started to run out of my chamber and met the others. Both Logan and Roxi were dressed in something of what I was. Logan approached me, he didn’t look happy. “I need to talk with you.” I nodded as we walked away from everyone else.

“What’s wrong? Did something happen to Dad?” I started to worry, but he nodded his head no, which gave me some relief.

“We have to tell them goodbye.” He said I could see he wasn’t happy about this. “For good. Aunt Marie didn’t tell us that once we do our first ritual, we are only allowed to leave, only on our birthdays, but because we are one of the rare ones, we are more limited to how long we can leave for.”

“When did you find out this?” I asked. I didn’t want to be restricted to when I was allowed to leave. “Can they visit us? You know mom and dad?”

“Yes, but only for a day, once a year.” My eyes started to water. I didn’t like this, at all. I still wanted to be able to leave.

“We have to tell them,” I said, as I started walking towards the entrance of the tree. Logan stopped me.

“I already talked to them, this morning. Dad understands, he is going back home with Aunt Marie and James, and they are going to try and convince Mom to come up this weekend for our birthday’s.”
I chuckled. “Good luck, once she finds out that we are basically trapped here, there is nothing more than she’ll want to do that get us out.”

Logan shrugged. “I honestly don’t think she will. After everything Aunt Marie has told us or has done for us, I don’t think she will be as prescient as you think.”

I looked over, Elle approached us both. “It’s time to practice. Sooner we get this done, the better.” I nodded as I caught Dean looking at me from afar. My heart started to beat faster, there was something about him, something that was different.

My heart was still Ricky’s, but with Dean being in the picture, I don’t see myself being with Ricky. I just can’t admit it for myself.

Unforgotten – Chapter 14

If you haven’t read Chapter 13, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/04/08/unforgotten-chapter-13/

Athena’s P.O.V.
“Well, it looks like we don’t need much to make this cure, but the sooner we can, the sooner we can cure your Aunt.” Elle said, reading over the list of things we needed to do to cure vampirism. I nodded, but my mind was very distracted. All I could do was think of that kiss.

“And don’t forget our brother too, Elle.” I looked over and saw Roxi heading towards Dean, Elle, and I. “Let’s get started, what’s first?”

“It involves all of you. Each of you needs to grab something from your element and a drop of your blood. Once that is done, we need to have you all form a circle, with the vampire we wish to turn human again.” Elle spoke as she looked over at Dean and Roxi. “Which means, it’s time to call your brother.”

They both nodded as Logan finally came out of his chamber. “What’s going on?” He asked Dean faced him with a smirk. “Your sister found the cure,” Dean spoke, as Logan’s eyes widen and a smile appeared on his face.

“Great! When do we start?” Logan asked as he looked over at Elle.

“We have to wait for a full moon, which is in three days. I suggest you all read up on how a ritual is performed.” Elle then placed the cure back in the clam and placed it behind the book. “Get some rest, all of you. Tomorrow, we will be practicing the ritual, I want to make sure that we do this right.”

Elle then handed us each a different book. Mine was about Earth ritual, as the others were theirs as well. I then headed back to my chamber and sat on the tree swing, that had two pillows on it. The carving was amazing, nothing like I’ve ever seen before. It was beautiful.

As put my feet up on the swing, I was just about to start reading, when someone came and approached me.

“You must have been a book nerd for sure.” As I looked up, Roxi was standing there. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt, but I wanted to talk to you.” I moved my feet and motioned for her to sit down next to me.

“It’s fine, books were my escape from the real world, sometimes,” I said as she gave me a soft smile. I could feel and sense that she was kind-hearted and wanted to do the best she could for the ones she loves. “What is it you wanted to talk to be about?”

“It’s about my brother.” She spoke, I felt a little nervous, I felt like I was going to get the ‘my brother is going to break your heart talk’, but she shook her head. “No, my other brother, Victor. The one we have to turn back into a human.”

“Oh, okay.” I was relieved that we were going to talk about Dean. Thinking about him was driving me crazy.

“I wanted to keep this away from Elle because she doesn’t know what has happened to Victor.” She paused and looked down at her book. “His vampirism was his doing because he didn’t want to be involved with all of this stuff. I wanted to ask you if we can do the ritual, secretly, for your Aunt Marie instead?” She explained. I was still confused.

“But my Aunt Marie said that she wasn’t one of the rare ones like we are.”

“She is. Why do you think she knows so much? A normal witch doesn’t have the knowledge she has. I’ve read her heart, it’s pure and she is one of the elements we need. Spirit.” Roxi explained some more. I still couldn’t believe it.

“Doesn’t she lose all of her powers when she becomes a human again?” I asked. Even if she wasn’t a vampire, how would she get her powers back?

“Yes, but that fountain, in the main hall, can have her powers returned to her. As long as she uses it for good, nothing bad will come from her.” Roxi stood up and looked back at me. “Look, I’ll talk to your brother and let him know. Talk to your aunt, tomorrow, and let us know. Otherwise, one of us will have to wait until another witch is born with the Spirit gift.”

I watched as she left my chambers. I got up and got into my cottage, closing the door behind me. I was still all confused, but once I looked inside, I felt at home. Everything was hand-carved, it looked almost like my aunt’s cottage, but more enchanted.

I decided to sit down and look into this book. Once I got comfortable, I turned the first page, a table of contents was listed, but something caught my eye. Spiritual Offspring. I turned to search that page, I skimmed through the first few pages.

‘Spiritual Offspring are quite common. Usually, when all of the Elemental chosen ones are around each other for long periods of time, feels can be developed. If not careful, females can become pregnant quite quickly and have a child within 9 months. As this can be a good thing, it can also become a bad thing. Once born, children of Elemental beings must be raised as what the mother is. They cannot be raised by the father’s element unless the mother passes from giving birth.’
I started to get the chills when I read this.

‘Although, this can be a challenge, some fathers either convince the mother to transition to their element, leaving all of their powers to be gone. It is often rare for a father to want to change to the mother’s element, but can happen. Hence why we caution to stay away from other Elemental beings until your time is over and someone can replace you’.
‘We do allow spouses or partners from the human world, but they will be trapped in your chambers until their passing. We recommend focussing on the tasks and rituals at hand before getting involved with another member.’

“That doesn’t make any sense.” I rubbed my head, as I got up and looked out my window, it was starting to get dark, the garden lights started to turn on and midnight flowers started to open up. I then walked over to the kitchen and grabbed the teapot on the stove and filled it with water.

Tea might help me relax and focus so that I’ll be able to figure out how to understand this all. I turned on the stove and placed the teapot on the burner when I heard a knock on the door. I was about to go answer it, but as I turned to answer it, I stood face-to-face with Dean.

“Hey, babe.” He said, giving me a smirk. I turned back around and grabbed a mug. “Making tea, huh?” I nodded as he said down at the bar.

“Why didn’t you just wait for me to answer the door?” I snapped. Dean took the mug that I grabbed and conjured my teapot to heat up quicker, making it whistle. Turning off the burner, I placed the teapot on a pot holder.

“I didn’t think I needed to since you were the only one in here,” Dean said as I looked at the tea that was available. “Peppermint tea is on the second shelf.” As I looked and saw the peppermint tea on the second shelf. Which was exactly the one I was looking for. He didn’t know that my favorite was peppermint, did he?

“Did you want peppermint as well?” I asked as he got up and grabbed it from the shelf. “Okay, smart ass.”

“You love it, babe. I know how I make you feel and guess what? I’m not going anywhere.” He smiled, sitting back down and pouring the hot water into both of our cups. “I figured you wanted peppermint.”

“How? Did you read my mind or something?” I asked. I was curious to know if he could or not.

“Kind of. I also know that you haven’t stopped thinking about that kiss we shared earlier.” He said, looking at me straight in my eyes. He stood back up and walked towards me, softly touching my cheek with his hand. “Neither have I, but I want more and I know you do too.”

Pressing our lips together, and he lifted me up onto the island as he pulled away and started kissing my neck. My hands were in his hair, messing it around as he pressed his lips again against mine. I didn’t know what was going on with me, but I didn’t care.

Dean’s hands traveled down to my waist and were lingering around the waistband of my jeans. He slowly lingered his fingers underneath my jeans. I craved more, but he stopped. I could hear him breathe heavily. He looked at me and gave a weird face as he stared at me.

“You’re still a virgin, aren’t you?” I froze, looking at him. I felt my cheeks get red. I didn’t want to admit to him I was or wasn’t I didn’t want him to freak out, but then again, I didn’t want him to stop. “Are you?”

“What if I am?”

“Because I want to know if you are or aren’t.” He said.

“Good night, Dean.” said pushing him out the door and closing it behind my back. I didn’t want to tell him. Then again, I was curious to know why he wanted to know. Why did it matter?

“That’s what I thought.” I heard him say as I saw him walk down my path.
This day was too much, I just wanted to go to bed.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
I looked over the sea, the waves crashed upon the beach, as I closed my eyes. With everything going on, this was my now favorite place to be, if I had some weed, it would be perfect. I still kept thinking about what Roxi said to me. Everything about my Aunt Marie.

It was a lot to know in such a short time.

I just wanted to ignore it, for the time being, I just wanted to relax. Listening to the waves crash was like a lullaby. I would’ve gone to sleep if someone didn’t interrupt me. “What’s up, my man!” I opened my eyes and saw Dean, leaning against the bean of my porch. He held out a bag of weed and I smiled.

“Didn’t think we could blaze in here?” I said as Dean chuckled.

“I wouldn’t be here if we couldn’t. Besides, Roxi and I have been taking care of your sister’s chamber, so we have been harvesting it, that and the other plants.” Dean chuckled as he started to roll a joint. “So, what’s up with your sister?”

“She’s going through some stuff. We both lost a good friend of ours, that and our mom couldn’t handle all of this witch stuff, so she went back home.” I explained. He handed me the joint and I placed it in my mouth, lighting it, slowly taking a hit. It had been a while since I last smoke, but this shit was not bad.

“Let me guess, he was her first love?” I was shocked when Dean said that. “I put two and two together and figured it was a guy she was heartbroken about.” He took the joint from my hands and took a hit.

“Yeah, it’s a long story, but I think she doesn’t know how to feel without him. He has been in our life since we were babies.” I spoke as he looked at me.

“I got you. She didn’t seem too upset when I kissed her.” Dean said, as I started to cough badly, I inhaled too much smoke, Dean started to slap my back. “Don’t worry, I’m not going to do anything she doesn’t want me to do.”

I gave him a look. That was something I didn’t need to hear about my sister, but then again, I can’t say nothing because I kissed his sister before she left. “I didn’t need to hear that.”

“And I didn’t need to see you kissing my sister either.” He spoke as I started to laugh. I didn’t think he saw me, but it was too funny not to laugh. “Alright, man, get studying and I’ll see you later.”

Dean said, taking one last hit and then leaving my chamber. One thing that I wanted to ask him as if he felt a connection with my sister as I did when I kissed Roxi. Maybe it was just me.

Last time I had a girlfriend, it didn’t last long because she wanted me to stop hanging out with my sister at school since she was always crocheting. Her name was Sara, but she was also my first. Thank god Athena made me come to my senses. She was a little crazy, but thankfully, moved to another state during freshman year.

Something about Roxi was drawing me to her when I kissed her, I didn’t want to stop. I wanted to kiss every part of her, I wanted to cuddle with her. Do anything I could to be with her. I don’t know what this means, but it was like we were meant to be together.

Unforgotten – Chapter 13

If you haven’t read Chapter 12, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/04/01/unforgotten-chapter-12/

Ricky’s P.O.V.
“What the fuck did you do to me??” I said as I yelled at my father, he was on the other side of the door from the room I was stuck in. I banged on the glass, but he didn’t move at all. What the hell was wrong with him? What did he really want me for?

“I can’t explain until you completely relax.” He spoke, but that just fueled my fire. He pointed his hand over to the table that had a chair on my side and his side of the glass. He walked over and sat down, waiting for me to sit down as well. “Sit, there is a lot we need to discuss.”

I sat down and glared at him, he had something on the table, that he slid to me under the glass. A folder, but not just anyone’s folder, my folder. My medical history folder. As I opened the folder, I figured there would be more stuff in it, since I had cancer, but there wasn’t. I closed it and slid it back forcefully.

“What do you want?” I asked, clearly he needed me to do something and I’ve been getting impatient. I needed to go find Athena. He pulled out the top piece of paper and highlighted something and slid it back over to me.

As I looked down, I was shocked. I wasn’t dying from cancer. This didn’t seem right, how could I be dying from cancer and it just healed me? Doesn’t make any sense. I needed some answers.

“I saved your life. I just activated a gene in your system that has been hidden away for a long time.” He paused and stood up, pacing back and forth. “You see, you aren’t just a regular human. You were born into a family that the werewolf gene is in us all.”
I looked at him confused, he noticed my look and gave me a soft smile. “I know this is a lot to take in, but I activated the gene, so your body would heal yourself from cancer.” He finished.

“How was the gene activated?” I asked.

“Well, you see, the werewolf gene only gets activated if you kill someone. So, I drugged you into thinking you were killing someone else, but really, it was your mother.” His smiled turned into a faded grin.

My heart stopped for a second. I stood up from the chair and looked at my own hairs, I could see some dried up blood in the nails of them. Then something in my mind happened, it flashed back to a few hours ago, when I was tied up with chains and he stabbed something in my chest.

My mother came over to check on me, and I ripped her neck off, then everything went black. I looked over at my father, who I didn’t believe for a second that he was my father. “I want proof! You son of a bitch!” I slammed into the glass again, still, it didn’t move at all.

My father pulled away from the table and nodded over to someone in the corner, two people covered in black rolled in with a body. I fell to my knees and saw her. My mother. He throat had a bandage covering where I hurt her.

I started to cry, I never thought I would ever hurt my mother. She was my only family. My one and only mom. Now, she was gone, because of me.

“Oh, one more thing,” He spoke. “Sad to say, but your little Athena died in a fire. Her Aunt’s place was burned to ash and there weren’t any survivors. Safe to say you won’t be seeing her anytime soon.”

My heart ached, I still didn’t believe him. I wanted proof that she was gone, just like my mother. I promised that I would get better and find her. If it was the last thing I did.

“Mark my words, when I get out of here, I swear to god that I’ll kill you!” I screamed, looking back at him, he laughed a little when I said it.

“You mean if you get out of here.” He said, laughing, again. “Next time you come out of here, you won’t be able to do so.”
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
“This is too crazy. If Ricky is alive, then where is he?” I spoke, as we were sitting back in the RV. Athena and I wanted to tell our father, Aunt Marie, and James, how everything was going.

“The last place he was at was his father’s, wasn’t it?” Athena asked as it was true, but why would Ricky’s father do this to his son? More in fact, what did he do to his son? I pulled out my phone and was about to call him when Aunt Marie took it.

“No! If Ricky’s father is really doing this, this is the last thing we want to do. He could track our call and make Ricky cry out for him. You both aren’t strong enough.” Aunt Marie explained as I rolled my eyes. This whole witch thing is bullshit.

I knew we had to be cautious, but we just found out that Ricky is alive and that we can actually save him. I just have a bad feeling, the longer we wait, the worse chance it will be to be able to save him.

Athena suddenly got up, from the corner seat and walked out of the RV. I was about to race back to her, but James spoke before I leave.

“I’ll go check on her.” He said as he then headed out to see Athena.

“This is hard on her, especially if she had a vision.” Aunt Marie explained to our father. She looked over at me and saw how confused I was. “When she or even you, have a vision, especially if it is someone you truly love, you can feel how they feel. Every pain they are having in that vision. Every emotion. It’s like you are the one that you are having a vision on. It’s different for everyone, but if the vision of someone you love, it’s harder. Trust me, I know.”

I looked back up at her. “You had visions?” I asked.

“Sure, I didn’t have them as much as you and your sister will have. I was lucky to have one every few months or so. I even saw you two were born, even though, I didn’t see your mother, I honestly thought that it was for me.” Aunt Marie smiled. “I think you two should get back in soon. I would keep looking for a cure. Sooner you figure that out, the more I can help you.”

She hugged me, as I hugged her back. Then I looked over at my dad, I gave him a look about, meaning I was asking about mom.

“She’s home, but she hasn’t talked to me about anything. Don’t worry, think positive, I will get through to your mother.” He said as I nodded, walking out of the RV. As I headed back to the tree, James was hugging Athena. I don’t know if I was being overprotected, but my blood started to boil.

I really didn’t trust that guy. There was something off about him. Something I wasn’t sure about. He was too interested in my sister. I approached them both, James gave me a small smile, but I ignore it. “Athena, we got to get back.” I snapped as she and I both went back into the tree.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
“What’s wrong with you? James was just talking to me.” I said I wasn’t sure why he was getting so upset over me just talking with someone.

“I just don’t trust him. Just stay away from him.” Logan said as he headed down into his hall. I couldn’t win with him. I walked over and sat by the fountain and looked into it. It had many different things on the bottom.

Rocks, gems, moss, shells, and fish. I just sat there and stared into the fountain. Thinking about everything that was happening and going on. Then I saw something that was different in the fountain. There was a closed clam, but this wasn’t normal, it was glowing in a purple light.

I grabbed it and held it in my hand, as it slowly opened up for me. Inside was a beautiful pearl, but there was something sticking out that was under the pearl. It was like paper, as I slowly pulled it out. It was small, but I once I started looking into what this really was.

“Oh my god,” I spoke as I put the clam on my lap, looking over the piece of paper I found.

“What’s that you got, babe?” I heard Dean’s voice, as he sat next to me, too close for comfort. He took the paper as he started to read it, his eyes popped open as he stood up.

“Holy shit, you found it. Do you know how long we have been looking for this?”

“I believe it was a long time, right?” I laughed. He came closer to me.

“You have no idea,” Dean said, leaning in closer to me and planted his lips upon mine.

Something happened when we kissed, I could hear his heart beating but didn’t want to stop, I craved more. Something about him was almost a part of me. The kiss was thrilling, exciting, and I didn’t want to stop.

Dean finally pulled away, leaning his forehead on the mind. “I would keep kissing you, but I have a feeling it would go further than just a kiss.” He smirked as I smiled back. He then sat next to me, closer than before. “This is going to drive me crazy.” He said, stroking the side of my arm.

I quickly stood up as I saw Elle coming into the main room. I grabbed the piece of paper from Dean and the clam, with the pearl.

“Elle, I think we found it,” I said, she smiled back at me and I handed her the clam and the piece of paper. “It’s the cure for vampirism.”

Unforgotten – Chapter 12

If you haven’t read Chapter 11, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/03/25/unforgotten-chapter-11/

Athena’s P.O.V.
Logan, Aunt Marie, and I stood in front of the tree. After spending long hours studying and cramming in as much knowledge as we can. Aunt Marie would only have a few hours to show us what we would need to do, after that, it would be up to us.

James and Dad spent the time watching for others, just in case someone knew where we were. We all knew how very dangerous it was for us to be seen out in the public. We were one of the generational twins. Meaning, there was another set of twins that was just as powerful as us.

Since we found out that my brother’s most favorable gift was water, mine was Earth and Spirit, meaning, I was more at risk. My brother and I both have agreed that will would stay together, no matter what.

I grabbed my brother’s hand as he looked at me and took a deep breath. “Ready?” He said as I nodded.

My Aunt Marie drank the potion and waited for a second before she touched the tree and spoke: “Qui vocat lignea ianuam aperire.”

When we were also learning, I picked up on a few words in Latin. That was how we were able to cast magic or spells. As the stomp started to open, Logan and I couldn’t believe it. I opened a secret passage that when into the ground. I could already see the stairs, made out of wooden, it looked so smooth, you just wanted to touch it.

Aunt Marie looked back at us and nodded, as she started to head down into the tunnel. Once Logan and I were in the tunnel completely, it closed by itself. I felt a little worried that we wouldn’t be able to leave, or Aunt Marie wouldn’t be able to leave.

“So, how are you going to get back out?” I asked as we followed behind Aunt Marie as she walked through the tunnel, which was growing bigger and bigger the further we went.

“Don’t worry, the entrance will open back up, as soon as I start to head back towards it. The spirits here aren’t exactly happy that I’ll be in here for a few hours.” She said as we finally walked into a giant room. It was still covered with that smooth wood, but there were vines going around the entire room. There was a mini lake in the middle of it all, as the water started to fall off of the rocks.

I was amazingly beautiful. Something you would see in a dream or a movie. There were 4 other hallways, each one labeled with a different element. Each of them glowed in the respective colors. I looked around again and noticed that there was a crafting area and next to it, a giant bookcase that stood next to the table.

A woman stood, from the table and looked over at us. Her hair was a mix of grey, but white started to take over her roots. She was dressed in one of those greek goddess dresses, but a shawl covered her shoulders.

“We have been waiting for you too. Blessed be.” She spoke as she started to walk towards us. “I’m the caretaker of this place. Everyone calls me Elle. If you need anything, I can help you as much as I can.” She looked towards Aunt Marie and he eyes sadden.

“My dear Marie, I never thought the day would come. How did it happen?” Elle asked as she grabbed her hands, but Aunt Marie didn’t answer her back. I was confused, but Aunt Marie seemed to notice. Elle looked over at us. “I see why. These are your niece and nephew?”

“Yes, but they are a lot more special than I thought. I had to bring them here.” Aunt Marie spoke as Elle nodded, walking over to Logan and me.

“Indeed they are. You are both safe here. All witches or wizards that enter in here cannot shed blood for death. However, there are those that will want your powers, with that being said, we must teach you how to do so.” Elle said as we followed her over to the crafting area.

There were two rings and two necklaces laying on a white cloth. One had a green gem in both, the other two had a blue gem in both. Elle handed me the green set and Logan the blue set, as we put them both on.

“Always keep these on. You can get them wet, sleep with them on, anything. They must stay on at all times. No one can take them off but you.” Elle said as I looked at my ring once more. It was beautiful, the gem was as green as my eyes were.

“Is there any other purpose of these?” Logan asked as he looked down at his ring, once more.

“They can be used for many purposes.” Aunt Marie spoke. “They protect your location, so no other witches can track you down. They can hide your markings from anyone as well. When we tell you not to take them off, don’t. Not unless you want a death sentence.”

Something caught my eye as I looked over that the wall, that was over in-between the spirit hallway. I notice one of the carvings was my name, it was glowing. I walked closer and saw three other names that were glowing as well.

I felt Elle’s presence next to me. “These are the listing of past, present, and future witches. The glowing names, such as your brother’s and yours, are rare ones. Names crossed out are the dead. Names that dark black is ones that are now a supernatural, like your Aunt and the other names carved, are regular witches.” She spoke as I saw the other two names.

“Who are Dean and Roxi Underwood?” I asked as I looked over and noticed someone was coming from the fire element hall. He had short orange-brown hair, wearing a black plaid shirt and black jeans. His eyes were a dark brown, but his nose, lip, eyebrow piercing completed him. My eyes lingered to the sight of his chest, as I could see he worked out quite a bit.
I bit my lip, preventing me from drooling over his sight. I never thought a guy like him would be so attractive. Although, my cheeks were starting to burn up, just thinking about it.
“Well, babe, I’m right here,” Dean said, as I noticed he was checking me out. I felt chills going up my back, as I turned and saw a blonde haired girl behind me, he hair tips had a hint of white in them and she was wearing a pretty light gray dress, that showed off her boobs. I looked over at my brother as his eyes got wider. I knew he had a crush on her, no doubt about it.

“This is Dean and Roxi, they are another pair of twins. Same age as you two, but still just as rare as you. You’ll be working together a lot, so I suggest to get to know each other well, but not too well, Mr. Underwood.” Elle said, glaring at Dean as he rolled his eyes at her.

“Don’t listen to her, babe. I won’t do anything unless you asked for it.” He smirked towards me, again.

“Okay, sorry to interrupt, but I’ve don’t have much time left.” Aunt Marie interrupted, as Logan and I walked over to her. “You’ll be in good hands. Elle helped me out with everything I needed to know. I know she’ll have a close eye on you both, but I have to get back to your father and James. Just remember to come up and see your Dad every day, okay?” We both nodded as we hugged her tightly as we could.

“Don’t worry, Marie. We will find the cure.” Elle said as our Aunt Marie left the giant wooden room. “Now, let me show you to your rooms.”

“We have rooms?” Logan said as we were both confused. “I didn’t think we were living here, too.”

“Of course, you two are one of the rarest forms of witches we have and they only come every generation or so.” Elle then took Logan and they headed towards the water elemental hall. “Roxi, can you show Athena to hers? I’ll be right back to check on you.”

Once Elle was out of sight, I felt Dean’s eyes on me. “Damn, you know how long we’ve been waiting for you?” He said as he started to lean up against one of the stones that surrounded the lake.

“Ignore him,” Roxi said as we started to head towards the Earth Elemental Hall. “He’s just upset that he hasn’t had anyone to fool around with.”

The hall had a green glow, as we started walking on grass, which I had a feeling to take off my shoes and walk down the hall barefooted. Vines were growing over my head, the more I walked done the hall. The room was something out of a fairy tale. It was like I was in another world.

Roxi lead me over to a small cottage, it looked just like my Aunt’s. In fact, it was just like my Aunt’s. Everything was the same, expect how everything looked more wooden and creative.

“Wow,” I said as I was so amazed. “It’s like I’m in a whole new world.” I looked right next to the house and saw a green field with different herbs and products growing.

“Alright, Princess Jasmine.” I heard Dean’s voice, as he interrupted my amazing view.

“Get going on that cure. Sooner you finish it, the sooner we can get our brother back.”
I was confused.

“What brother? I thought we were all twins?”

“We are, but our brother is the high priestess and is known for being the rarest of all of us. He was turned into a vampire because he was dumb enough to fall for a vampire.

That’s why you didn’t see his name glowing because he’s a vampire.” Roxi explained as I walked over to the river that split the cottage from the hallway, and placed my feet in the water. It was relaxing until something happened.

Everything went black in my mind.

“What the hell are you doing to me?” I heard a familiar voice, but when my eyes opened, I saw Ricky, laying on a table, he was chained up. His mother was nowhere near him, but what looked like his father was standing next to him.

“Relax, we are just going to activate your inner werewolf and vampire gene.” his father spoke as I watched him stab a long needle into his heart, putting whatever was in that jar into Ricky’s heart. Ricky screamed in pain before finally passing out.

I looked over and finally saw his mother walking towards Ricky. She was crying, but there was something different about her. Something I never noticed before, until now. She wasn’t alive. She wasn’t her normal self. She was dying, with blood tears running down her face as she fell to the ground.

Ricky’s father rushed to her side and stabbed a different needle into her heart. “I can’t lose you too!” He shouted. Holding her tightly in his arms, he had two strangers, in black clothes, take Ricky away.

“Put in him that special room. He needs time to awaken. Make sure his cell service is off, we need to make sure that he doesn’t have any contact with those fucking witches.”

Everything went black again.

I awoke in the arms of Dean. He was all wet, as I realized I was too. My eyes started to flutter again, looking back up at Dean, who was now looking at someone else.

“What happened!” I heard my brother shout, Dean then lifted me up and laid me back down on the grass.

“She just fainted and her eyes turned a freakish green,” Dean said, as I slowly sat up. Dean helped me, but I pushed him away. “What the fuck happened to you?”

I took a deep breath and looked over at Logan and Elle, who sat next to me. I was shocked at what I saw. Something that I never thought was possible, but it was.

“Ricky’s alive. I saw him, but he’s not normal.”

Unforgotten – Chapter 11

Athena’s P.O.V.
“I can’t believe I’m going to do this,” James grunted, as I handed him his new daylight ring. He placed it back on his finger and glared at me. “If I burn into a million pieces, I’m coming back to haunt you.”
“James, she did it just the way I would of. I would be more worried about pissing her off.” Aunt Marie said as she smirked back at him. I always wondered if they had something going on? I can’t believe so after James caused Eli to died.
James then took a deep breath and slowly walked into the sunlight. I watched with fear, knowing that vampires can burn in the sunlight and I didn’t want another reason for my mother to hate me. I know she didn’t hate me, but deep down, she didn’t like what my brother and I were about to become.
James sat in the sun, not burning up and smiled. “It worked!” He exclaimed, he was like a little kid who had just seen snow for the first time. I smiled. I’m glad that it worked. He came up to me and hugged me. “Thank you so much! You have no idea how long I’ve spent in the shadows during the day.”
“Your welcome,” I said, as he released me. I looked over at Aunt Marie. “So, what’s next?”
She gave me a gentle smile. “Well, we have to get back on the road, now. I don’t want you guys to be seen by anyone with those markings on.” She said as we all got into the RV. I looked out the window and saw my parents arguing.
“Tanner, we need to go back home. I’ve been out of work for the past week and I-” My mother said, checking her phone, but my father interrupted.
“No, our children need us. I need you.” My father grabbed my mother’s hand, his eyes looked desperate. “Please, see if you can take another week off.”
“I can’t and I don’t want to! Tanner, don’t you see? Our children are turning into monsters and I don’t want to stand by and watch them died!” I was shocked that my mother even said that. “I love you, Tanner. I do, but I need to go.”
“Jade, it’s not safe for you to go home.” My father said as he held onto my mother’s hand. “Fuck your job, you can always find another one.”
“I don’t care, I’m going home. I want our normal lives back. You, the kids, and me.” She then paused. ” I wished you never went looking for your sister.” She pulled away from my father and opened one of the storage doors on the side of the RV and started heading to the bus station that was just across the street where we were parked.
My father started yelling for my mother, but she wouldn’t turn back around.
“Where’s Jade going?” James asked as my father came back onto the RV and shut the door.
“She’s going home.” My father sat down on at the table. “I tried to convince her to stay, but she won’t listen.” He looked at me and then over at Logan, grabbing each of our hands. “I’m not going anywhere. Where ever you need to go, I’m coming with you.”
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
As soon as our mother left, we kept driving. Since James and my Aunt Marie didn’t need to sleep, they took turns. James’ daylight ring was working perfectly fine. I made me glad that something I did, turned out just fine.
I looked out the window, after looking away from a few of the books we took from my Aunt’s house. We turned into a graveyard parking lot. As I kept looking forward, there was a giant tree, sitting in the middle of the graveyard.
I looked over at Logan and he was staring at it too. My Aunt Marie put the RV in the park. “Here we are.” She spoke as she smiled at both of us.
“Where are we?” I asked. Looking at the entrance of the graveyard gave me goosebumps.
“We are at the Witches Circle of Life. This is where all witches are safe from harm and also where you are both going to be working on the vampire cure.” I gave her a weird look as I noticed the tree was now glowing.
Logan and I quickly left the RV, as if we were drawn to it. I grabbed his hand as we looked forward at the now white leaf tree. We were about to start walking into the graveyard, but Aunt Marie stood in front of us, both.
“Wait, we need to talk before you go in there.” She said as I looked over at the tree and then back at her. “I can only be in there with you for a short amount of time if I drink this potion. If I go in there, I’ll only have about 4 hours or so to explain everything you need to know about it.”
“Then let’s go,” Logan said as he started to walk past the entrance.
“Logan, it’s not that simple. Once my 4 hours are up, you have to get me out of there. If I stay any longer, the older spirit witches can do whatever they want to me because I am a vampire.” She sighed. “I want to make sure that you guys know everything you need to know before going into there.”
Logan turned back around and looked at me. “When do you think we should go?” He asked as I thought about. The sooner we were in, the sooner we can figure out how to make the cure, but the longer it might take.
There was still so much that we both needed to know. More about vampires, about spells, about magic, and about our own kind. I looked over at Aunt Marie, I could tell she was worried about us going in there alone.
“How many days do you think we should wait? I asked. She thought about it but sadly came back.
“About a day or so, give or take. It depends if anyone knows you two exist.” She paused. “Whenever you feel ready, we will go in, I just want to make sure you guys are safe. There will be others who will fear you both because of your power.”
I looked over at Logan as he nodded. I knew he would agree to what I have to say. “We’ll wait until midnight, and then we should go in. It will give us time to learn more, but not long enough to be noticed.
Aunt Marie smiled. “Alright, let’s eat and fill your heads with as much knowledge as we can.”
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I eyes fluttered open as I looked around. Everything seems different. All I saw was dark walls. All my senses felt heightened. I could see things I didn’t think I could ever imagine seeing.
Am I in heaven? Or is this hell? Whatever it is, I don’t ever want to leave, but then I thought of her. My Athena. I could fell my blood in my body start to warm up at even thinking about her.
I wanted to see her, but where am I? I got up from the floor I was laying on and walked closer until I heard someone walking by the door. I listened in as I could hear my mother’s voice. Was she dead? No, can’t be.
“I can’t believe we did this to him. I feel terrible.” She spokes as I heard her. I could hear her heartbeat fasten and my throat started to throb in pain. I was hungry, but for my mother?
“Savannah, we had to. He was dying and this was the only way to save him.” I recognized another voice, my father’s.
“A hybrid was really the only way? We could have sent him to the hospital and had them do their best to save them. You just want to make up for lost time.” A hybrid? What was my mother talking about?
“Our son is alive, honey. He will still alive until we pass on to the next world. He’ll be able to have a life, fall in love, and possibly have kids. He would’ve found out sooner if you didn’t lie to him about having cancer.” What was he talking about? I never had cancer. I was about done hearing this conversation.
I needed to find out answers, now. I tried to open the door, but it would’ve budged. “OW!” my hand started to burn, as I let it sit on the hande. I pulled it away and watched as my hand healed itself. “What the hell?”
What was going on with me? None of this was normal. What did they do to me? What am I? I looked around the room, seeing if I could find something to help me get out. Nothing. Nothing was in this room, but the blanket I was laying on.
I backed away from the door, took a deep breath and slammed into the door. It still wouldn’t break open. I turned around and saw a window, tried smashing that, still nothing. My blood boiled as I was furious at myself and my parents.
Pacing back and forth, I realized I still had my phone in my pocket. I quickly grabbed it and saw I had missed calls, voicemails, and messages. I quickly saw the first one from Athena:

Are you really gone? My heart is killing me. It aches and misses you.

Please, answer me. I can’t believe this is happening to me.

Ricky, I miss you.

My heart filled with joy that she still missed me, I tried to reply back, but I had no service. Damn it! Nothing is going right! I looked through more and more of the messages from Athena, but the last one really hurt.

Dear Ricky,
Whether you are dead or alive, this is the last message I will send to you. It’s been about 2 weeks since you have been gone or haven’t responded. Thinking about your day and night has brought me nothing, but sadness. I don’t know why you are still on my mind, but I have to get you out of it. I need to be focused because today, I am finally going to cure my Aunt. You will always have a piece of my heart, but I will never stop thinking about you.
Goodbye,
Athena

I threw the phone against the wall, as it broke into a bunch of little pieces. She thinks I’m dead and she doesn’t know the truth. More anger built up in my soul as I started pounding on the door.
“GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE!” I screamed. Still nothing, that was until I saw the door window open. I looked at my father with anger filled in my eyes. “What the fuck did you do to me?!”
“Hello, Son.” He gave me an evil smirk.

If you haven’t read Chapter 9, here is the link:

Logan’s P.O.V.
We all got into the RV, watching our Aunt Marie’s cottage go up in flames. I could feel how to sadden my Aunt Marie was that she was losing this place. This was her home. A place that I wished I could’ve to seem more of.
“Where to now?” I heard my father asked. Our parents weren’t getting along and my mom has been in the back room, ever since we had markings all over us. My Aunt Marie suggested that either she and James could drive during the night until one of us could make them some daylight rings.
“Well, first we have to get Ricky, then we have a long drive to the Spiritual Tree. Sooner we get there the better.” Marie said as she got up and walked over to my sister, who sat there, not speaking a word since we left. “Athena, you need to call Ricky’s phone again. If not, try his mother.”
Athena slowly grabbed her phone, as I watched her dial his number, her face saddened. “Phone is off. It ran once and went to voicemail.” She chucked her phone on the floor. I picked it up and placed it on the table. I touched my sister’s hand and felt everything she was feeling.
She was scared to know if her visions were true or not. She was afraid that something bad happened to him and she wasn’t able to say goodbye, or do the other thing, which I wished I didn’t know. I pulled out my phone and dialed Ricky’s mother number.
It rang more than twice, as I waiting for her to pick up. Until I heard her voice. “Logan, I’ve been meaning to call you all.” I heard her fragile voice spoke. “It happened so quickly, I just don’t know what to say.”
I could hear her sniffing. My stomach started to get tense. I felt like I was going to start crying, but I held back the tears. “What happened? Is everyone alright?”
Athena looked up and stared at me, I know she was trying to figure out what was going on, but I kept a blank face. I didn’t want her to see me get upset or see me cry. I’ve always kept a strong wall up when it came to emotions. I don’t like to show my weaknesses. Even if someone died, I try to stay strong for Athena.
“Oh, Logan,” She paused, as I could hear her blowing her nose. “Ricky’s dead.” After hearing those words, I didn’t know what to think. I looked into Athena’s eyes and I think she heard too.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
I knew when I looked into my brother’s eyes, something was wrong. Something I feared would happen. My one true love, my first love, was now gone. My heart felt like it fell in my stomach. I didn’t know what to do. He was a part of me, gone before I had a chance to tell him goodbye.
I got up from the table and went into the small RV bathroom. I closed the door shut and just started to cry. Why couldn’t this pain go away? Why did he have to go? Why is my heart hurting this much? I kept running questions after questions in my head to explain to me why he wasn’t alive. Tears kept falling down my face, as I looked up into the mirror.
My eyes were red, but the tears kept coming. Someone knocked onto the door. I ignored it. I didn’t want to talk to anyone. No one can help me.
“Hunny, please come out. I know it hurts, but you need to talk about this?” I heard my mother spoke. I don’t know what happened to me, but I snapped. I opened the bathroom door and stared at her. I could sense she wanted to say those words I wished never existed.
I told you so.
“Are you alright?” She asked, but I still gaze at her, with hate.
“Am I alright? What do you think I am? Happy?” I snapped at her, I could feel my pulse heating up. Every inch of my body was so angry. “Ricky is dead and you want to know how I am alright? How could you ask such a thing after my best friend and first love is dead!”
My mother looked shocked and tried to hold onto my father’s shoulder. “Athena, please calm down. I know how you feel.”
“Don’t even say that! No, you don’t know how I feel because you didn’t lose your first love, you got him back! Mine’s gone forever!” More tears started to fall down my cheeks. I looked at my mother. “He’s gone and you kept him away from me. I hate you!” I yelled and ran in the back room.
I saw my Aunt Marie come behind me and comfort me. Her cold skin relaxed me, as she hugged me tightly. “I’m so sorry, love.” She whispered in my ear. It felt weird that my Aunt Marie was more comforting than my mother has ever been.
She pushed back my hair and wiped the tears from my eyes. She placed a cold kiss on my forehead. “It’s gonna hurt, right now. Losing someone is never easy, believe me, I do know. I lost my first love a few years back. To this day, I’ve never found anyone else to replace him.” She spoke as I sat up on the bed and looked at her, wiping away the last of my tears.
“How did he die?” I asked I hoped it wasn’t too bold of a question, but she didn’t flinch at the question. She kept twisting the only ring from her finger. It was a Claddagh ring with a beautiful blue topaz stone in the shape of a heart.
“Well, a month before you guys were born, I was dying and in the hospital. My grandmother tried to cast a beautiful spell and ended up being a curse. I had until my 21st birthday to find true love and have a child, to keep me from dying. While I was in the hospital, your father and mother sat by me the entire time. An old friend of mine came to visit, which happened to be my first love, but I couldn’t be with him.” She paused.
“Why not?”
“Because he wasn’t human. He was one of the older vampires that I had crossed my paths while looking for another way to cure my curse. We both fell in love but kept it a secret. Relationships between witches and vampires were allowed. It was very dangerous and deathly.”
“I can see why, but how did he know where you were?” I asked it was a little weird to me that he knew where she was.
She pulled off her ring and held it up for me to see. “With this.” She put it back on her finger. “He gave this to me, once the elders found out we were together and had us end it. We were bonded together, since I let him feed on me, at one point.” She smirked. “So, I had a bond spell put on the ring and his watch, to let him know where I was and what my health was at. There was another gem in the watch, the same as in my ring, that would change colors, so he saw the gem start to go black, which meant I was dying.”
“Once he saw me, he didn’t want to go, so I fed on him and he took me out of the country, that night and brought me to his home, where I completed the transformation to become a vampire. I still kept in touch with my brother, the first few years were the hardest and your mother didn’t want me around if I still fed on humans. It took me years to finally come up with another way to feed, but without even feeding on humans.”
“During that progress, I found your mother’s best friend, James. He had overdosed on drugs a few times before I changed him. I wasn’t going to let your mother’s best friend die because he didn’t get to be with your mother. My Eli ended up getting himself burned to death because of James. James was fighting after he was turned that he ripped off Eli’s daylight ring. He burned to death and I never forgave myself for that. He died because I was stupid and tried to save a druggie who wanted to die.”
I couldn’t believe it. She lost her love too. I touched her hand. It broke my heart to know that my Aunt Marie went through all that to save someone who wanted to be saved but ended up losing her one true love.
“I’m so sorry, Aunt Marie,” I said as I pulled her in for a hug. She hugged me back but pulled away. She stared into my eyes.
“The point of me telling you this is that revenge won’t get you anywhere. Hence why James is still alive. If I were to kill him, your mother would want to kill me. Be the stronger person and try not to lash out to your mother because you might end up hurting her.” She turned my hands upside down and showed that they had a little black in the middle of my palm. “See, you getting angry is like if someone were to turn a toddler or baby into a vampire. A fit would cause half of the planet to die off. You are a lot stronger, you need to train your powers so that you don’t hurt anyone by mistake.”
I nodded as she got up and left the room. I looked down at my hands and wiped them away from the ash that stained them. Aunt Marie was right, I needed to be careful, otherwise I might hurt someone important.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
“Alright, switching up the drivers.” James said as my father pulled over and they switched seats. We were all sitting at the table, with the exception of my mother, who has been on the phone with Ricky’s mother for the past hour.
“James, do you mind if we can pull into a fast food place in the next stop, we don’t have much food left in the fridge.” My father asked as James nodded. My father walked over to us. “What’s she learning now?”
I looked over at the book and the language. I couldn’t understand what it was saying, but my mind switches the words around. “I call out to my gods and goddesses, let me have the powers to bless this daylight ring.
“She’s learning the basic daylight spell. James’ doesn’t have a daylight ring, so I figured if she could turn his ring into a daylight ring, she will be able to do any basic spell.” Aunt Marie spoke as she handed me his ring.
“This better work, I don’t want to be the kid’s experiment.” James holler as we all chuckled.
“Now, focus and repeat after me: ‘Clamavero ad di deaeque benedicere vires adimant anulum habeam.'”
Clamavero ad di deaeque benedicere vires adimant anulum habeam.” I spoke and focused on the ring. I felt some type of weird feeling in my body that moved the ring up in the air, without anyone touching it. I then touched the ring, as it fell into my palm.
“Wow,” Logan said as Aunt Marie smiled.
“Did it work?” I asked, as Aunt Marie looked over at the ring and gazed up at James.
“Well, there is only one way to find.” She spoke.

Unforgotten – Chapter 9

If you haven’t read Chapter 8, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/03/05/unforgotten-chapter-8/

Ricky’s P.O.V.
I felt myself starting to get nervous as I walked up the stairs to my birth father’s house. I wouldn’t say it was a house, but more like a palace. Closer I got to the door, I could feel my hands starting to sweat. I looked over at my mother and smiled. She knew how much this would mean to me, but I could see that she was worried.
We finally got to the door and my mother rang the doorbell. All I could think about is if he would like me? Or care about me? Mom had talked on the phone with him, trying to plan out when we could both go and I get to meet him for the first time.
The door started to open and there he was. I didn’t know what to feel. Happy, sad, excited, angry, or nervous. I was just glad I knew who he looked like. Silence. “Come on in. We have a lot of catching up to do.” He gave a small smile.
As we walked in, I saw all the photo’s of me on the walls, some with just me and others with my mother. There was one photo that caught my eye, it was a photo of all three of us. It confused me. It didn’t make any sense.
“When was this taken?” I asked. My mother made it very clear that my father wanted nothing to do with me. If he wanted nothing to do with me, why did he have photos of me? Let alone a family photo of all of us.
“When you were first born.” My mother said as we all sat down. “You see, I had to lie to everyone that your father wanted nothing to do with you because of his parents. They wanted to pay me to abort you, I lied and told them you were someone else’s child. Jade is the only one who knows who your real father is, but I told her that he wanted nothing to do with you. We had to keep you a secret, we didn’t want to, but we had to. For your safety.”
“Why didn’t you tell me when I was old enough?” It didn’t make any sense to me.
“Because my parents died two months ago in a car crash. It would’ve made more sense to tell you after they passed away.” My father sighed. “I’m sorry you had to find out like this, but I never stopped missing you, Ricky. I know this won’t make up for me not being there when you were growing up and stuff, but you and your mother are more than welcome to stay here, with me.”
I felt angry and betrayed by my mother. She lied to me. Even if it was for the best, she should’ve told me about it all sooner. I looked back at my mother and then turned to face my father. “Did she tell you that I’m dying from cancer?” I snapped. I shouldn’t have said it out loud, but knowing my mother, she might not told him at all? Or did and he is trying to spend as much time as he can with me?
My father looked shocked as I spoke those words. So, she didn’t tell him. I then stood up and walked towards the front door. Pacing back and forth, trying to figure out what the hell just happened. I felt that my life was a complete lie.
I felt my phone going off, didn’t bother to check the caller ID and just answered it. “Hello?”
“Where are you guys?” I heard Athena’s comforting voice. My nerves started to relax, once I heard her voice.
“Still at my father’s house. You won’t believe what just happen.” I said.
“You need to come back, now. It’s not safe for us.” I was puzzled. What did she mean it wasn’t safe? I didn’t want to argue, but something must have happened. I had to get back to her.
I coughed, a little bit of blood started to come out. “Shit,” I mumbled under my breath, as I pulled the bottom of my tank top to wipe the blood away.
“I’ll be on my way.”
“Okay, hurry. We don’t have much time.” Athena spoke, but then hung up. I felt weak going back into my father’s house. Everything was spinning. I couldn’t see what was going on.
“Ricky!” Was the last thing I heard before everything went black.
__________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
“Did you call him? Is he on his way?” I asked as Athena hung up the phone. We were both still in our Aunt Marie’s room that had all kinds of witchcraft books and stuff.
“He said that he was going to be on his way, but we have to keep in mind it will be a few hours before we can actually cast the spell,” Athena said as I nodded. She went back into looking into the book, but something happened and she looked like she was in pain.
I could see markings appearing on her wrist, something I have never seen before. Athena screamed as these markings were burned into her skin. As I went to go help her, I felt the pain as well. It burned as the same markings were starting to burn into our skin.
The door slammed open as Aunt Marie and James came into the room. “It’s happening.” I heard Aunt Marie say before she took my arms and placed them into her cauldron. The water was cold but stopped the pain as I watched the markings starting to crawl all up to my shoulder.
I looked over at my sister, as she was passed out in James’ arms. Our parents then walked in. Mom ran to Athena, freaking out.
“What did I tell you?!” She screamed. “I’m going to kill you!” Dad held her back before she could do anything to her.
“They aren’t dying, Jade.” She paused and I could feel the pain stop. “So, before you go assuming, let me explain!” Aunt Marie snapped and handed them the same book that Athena dropped to the ground.
“James, bring Athena to the spare bedroom and stay with her and I’ll explain what is going on.” Aunt Marie said, handing James a jar of some type of liquid. “Make her drink that when she wakes up, it will help with the pain. James nodded, doing as he was told and left the room.
My mother looked like a mess, I could see she was angry and worried. She’s probably thinking the same thing I am, what the hell is going on? My mother and father both finally sat down.
“Look, I gave them some special tea to figure out how strong they were and they are one of the rarest ones.” Aunt Marie said as she walked over to me and pulled my hands out of the cauldron. I saw that the water had healed my pain as I looked over the new markings over my body. “It looks like water is going to be his strongest element. These markings, are to your elemental temple, which is Atlantis.”
Sweet, I thought to myself. I’ve always wanted tattoos, but this was even better.
“What about Athena? What happened to her?” My father spoke.
“That’s the thing, I’m not sure what is wrong with Athena. Although, Logan and she will be much stronger if they stick together.” Aunt Marie sighed. “Which is why we are going to have to leave sooner than expected.” As she was about to walk out the door, my mother’s hand gripped her wrist.
“What do you mean leave?? If we leave, we are taking our children with us and we are going home!” My mother shouted.
“If you want your children to live, I suggest you listen to me! They aren’t safe anymore! If they go out anywhere, with those markings on them, they will be killed!” Aunt Marie left the room, but my mom turned to face me.
“Mom, I know this is a lot to handle, but we need to do this. We need to stick together.” I said, but all I could see in her eyes was disgust. The vibe I felt, coming from her, was sickening. She hated what both of us children were becoming into. “I know you hate what we becoming, but if it gets a chance to save James, Aunt Marie, and even Ricky, isn’t it worth trying?”
I walked closer to my mother, but she pushed away. “I need time to think about all this.” She said, walking away from me. My father stood up next to me and gave me a hug.
“I’ll always be here for you guys. Always and forever.” He said, holding my head against his chest. He let go and headed towards the door. “Let me try and talk to her. Go check on your sister and I will be right there.”
As he left, I took a look at my hands, one more time. It was different. I felt different, but I felt what my mother was thinking I was.
A monster.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
It burned. my entire body was on fire, it felt like my skin was melting on top of my bones. The pain was the only thing I could think of until everything went dark. I was frozen where I was, couldn’t move an inch.
“Athena.” Someone whispered my name. I wanted to turn to find who it was, but I couldn’t. I felt cold relief over my body. Then something in my mind turned on. I could see Ricky.
“Ricky!” I called out, but he couldn’t hear me. I screamed again, but he still wouldn’t turn. My mind flashed as I saw him in front of the build, coughing up blood. My heart ached as I could see his cancer getting worse.
Another bright flash happened and I saw him laying on the steps, blood coming out from his nose and mouth. “Ricky, please hold on!” I saw his mother say as she held him close to her heart. A man was on the phone, dialing as fast as he could.
Everything went black, again.
I sat right up and started to breathe even harder, again. I looked around the room and saw James and my Aunt Marie at the side of the bed I was on.
“Easy, take deep breaths and when you are ready to drink this.” Aunt Marie handed me a glass of liquid and I did what I was told.
“Athena, are you alright?” I looked up and saw my brother in the doorway. He had different markings on his arms, they were black and navy blue. The markings looked familiar, but I couldn’t remember where I saw them.
I then realized that Ricky was in danger. I quickly got up from the bed and started to hurry out of the room, but James caught me as I lost my footing. “We need to go. Ricky is in danger.”
“You need to relax, alright?” James said.
“What do you mean he’s in danger?” Logan asked as I took a deep breath.
“I saw him when I blacked out, my mind saw him, he got off the phone with me and he’s bleeding from his nose and mouth. We have to go save him!” I said, finally pulling James away from me.
My Aunt Marie’s eyes widen as she started to grab some bags and such. “This day just keeps on getting better and better.” She then looked up at James. “We need to leave here, now. Make sure you grab everything we need, we won’t be coming back.”
James nodded and quickly left the room. “What do we do now?” I asked. “We are going after Ricky, right?”
“Athena, we need to leave here as fast as we can. You just had a vision. Witches having visions are normal, but usually, you need to cast a spell to see it beforehand. Your powers are a lot rarer than I thought.” Aunt Marie looked at Logan and I. “You too, need to stay together. Don’t ever leave each other’s sides. Got that?”
We both nodded.
“Great, well, grab whatever you need from my room. I have to make sure no one knows this place ever existed.” Aunt Marie said, opening the closet door and grabbing a barrel of gasoline.

Unforgotten – Chapter 8

If you haven’t read Chapter 7, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/25/unforgotten-chapter-7/

Athena’s P.O.V.
I entered the RV, not realizing that someone was with me. I turned and Ricky scared me. I jumped, as he shut the RV door.
“You scared me. I was going to be right back in-” He pressed his lips to mine and wrapped his arms around my waist. It caught me off guard, but I liked it.
My fingers when through his hair, as he held my waist, one of his hands drifted to my butt, where he squeezed it tight. He broke the kiss and started to place kisses down my chin and neck. I craved more of his touch when he placed one last passionate kiss on my lips.
Our faces were touching as we both were trying to catch out a breath. “I’ve been wanting to do that all day.” Ricky spoke as I smirked. He placed another kiss on my lips before I went over and grabbed my crocheting bag.
“How have you been feeling?” I asked. He turned to face away from me, but I understand if he didn’t want to answer. I was worried about him. I loved him with all my heart, even though he is my first love. He was still everything to me.
“I’m feeling great.” He responded. I wanted to ask more, but I figured he would get annoyed with me asking, so I dropped it.
We both left the RV and walked back inside. I looked around and saw that no one was in the living room or the dining room. I left my bag on the table as I looked up and saw them outside.
“You are not going to fucking turn him! I won’t let you!” I heard James’ voice yelling at someone. I walked further into the kitchen and saw the back down opened. “You created me to be this fucking monster, I’m not going to let you turn him into one as well!”
I stood in the doorway and saw my brother, father, and Aunt Marie, sitting at one end of the porch, with James and my mother, standing in front of them.
“James, I will explain! You need to lower your voice.” Aunt Marie said as she saw me standing in the doorway. “I need to talk to Athena.”
“No, you won’t! You want to turn her best friend into a monster! I don’t want her to become like you, something so evil!” My mother said as I could see the anger in my Aunt’s eyes.
“Your daughter and son have something that can help save people like us. People who don’t want to kill themselves because they can’t leave their house during the day. Whether you like it or not, it can help save Ricky as well.” She spoke and then walked over to me. “Tomorrow morning, we will talk more, but only if you and your brother want to.”
As our Aunt Marie headed upstairs, I looked up at my brother and father. My brother nodded, telling me that he had his approval and my father smiled at me. I felt Ricky grabbed my hand and whispered, “You don’t have to do this, Athena.”
I looked up at him and smiled. “I’m not just going to do this for you, but to save my Aunt Marie and others who want to be free from their immortal curse.”
I saw relief in his eyes, but all I could think of is if this would really work?
___________________________________________________________________________________________
The next morning, we were all sitting down for breakfast. My Aunt Marie deicide to make us all something to eat. We all ate in complete silence, until Ricky’s mother spoke.
“So, Ricky.” She paused and took a sip of her coffee. “I got in contact with your father and he wants to meet you today. I figured we can both go meet him, while everyone is settling in.”
Ricky nodded. “Okay, but I wanted Athena to meet my father as well.” I was shocked, but then again, I was glad that he offered. Although, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go meet him now, plus what I have read in my mom’s journals, I don’t think that I will do that.
“No, I think I should stay here. I can always meet him another time.” I said as he looked disappointed, but I hoped he would think of it as I am trying to save his life.
My mother suddenly got up and walked away from the table. My father followed her, I was about to, but I could already hear her, then again, everyone could.
“Why are you so supported of this, Tanner?!” We heard my mother shout. “Why would you want to turn our daughter into something like that!”
“Jade, if she is going to save my sister, your best friend, and possibly Ricky, wouldn’t you want her to at least try?” He spoke, there was a long pause. The entire house went silent. “Wouldn’t it be great that you got your best friend back?”
“Yes, but this isn’t the way to do it. James said it can be very dangerous if-” My mother spoke, but was interrupted.
“Have you asked him if he still wants to be a blood-sucking demon for the rest of the world?” Once my father spoke those words, she walked back into the kitchen and looked at James.
“I know you heard, do you?” She snapped.
“No.” He softly said. She then looked over at our Aunt Marie.
“You can teach them, but I swear to god, you hurt my babies or they get into harm’s way, I will kill you.” James chuckled as her serious face turned to face him too. “Both of you.” She walked and left the cottage. My father followed her again.
“Well, that was fun.” James spoke and smirked at me. “Boy, didn’t miss her attitude.”
“Be nice, James.” Aunt Marie said as she looked at me and Logan. “Finish up breakfast and we will start your lessons.” She started to walk upstairs. We all got up from the table and James started to take care of the plates.
“Ricky, let’s go. It’s gonna be an hour drive from here and the cab will be here shortly.” Ricky’s mother spoke as she smiled and left as well. Ricky and I headed outside and stood on the porch, he hugged me tightly.
He looked back at me. “Are you sure you don’t want to go with us?” He asked once more.
“I’m sure, but I know you will tell me all about it when you get back, right?”
“Right.” He kissed my forehead, making me smile. “I love you.” He whispered.
“I love you, too.” I whispered back as the cab pulled in. His mother and Ricky got into the cab, I waved them goodbye. Once they were out of sight, I walked back into the cottage and almost walked into James. “Oh, I’m sorry.”
He smirked. Pulling a piece of my hair behind my ear. “Boy, do you remind me of your mother when we were young.”
I pushed his hand away and headed towards the stairs, but he grabbed me and threw me against the wall. Placing both of his arms on the other side of my head. My heart started to beat faster. I felt the hairs on my arms stand up.
“You know, your mother was this fiery when she was your age. Makes me want to have you even more.” He whispered in my ear. I pushed him away and ran upstairs. My Aunt Marie was waiting for me in the hallway, as soon as I entered in she locked the door behind her. Logan was sitting on the couch, drinking something.
Aunt Marie looked me in my eyes and saw the fear that was in them. “I’ll take care of James, don’t worry.” She whispered to me as I nodded and then sat down next to my brother.
She handed each of us a teacup, with some tea in it. “Now, each of you needs to drink this as I explain.” I smelt different herbs, but the one that stuck out to me was rose petals. As I took a sip, it started to calm me down, from what had just happened.
“This tea can determine how much power or skills you have. Witches can feel different elements, you just have to have your mind opened to them. Drinking this will also relax your mind, so as you are drinking it, relax your mind completely.” Aunt Marie said as I took a few more sips. “One thing we have to find out is which element represent your soul.”
As we finished our teas, we noticed that there were some herbs sticking to the bottom of the cup. Mine looked like it had formed a symbol. It looked very familiar. Looking back in my mind, it looked like a spiral, something that I would always use for my creative blankets I would crochet.
“Why are my herbs like this?” I asked as I gave my teacup to Aunt Marie. She looked surprised as she saw inside of the teacup. She got up and looked over at the bookcase to grab a dark green book, that had a spiral on the spine of the book and book cover.
“It can’t be.”
“What can’t be?” Logan asked as I looked over at him. What there something wrong with me?
“Athena has one of the rarest gifts that you can ever get as a witch. My grandmother had it as well.” Aunt Marie paused as she sat back down across from us and handed me the book. I looked down and looked at the witchcraft symbol, showing all the elements.
“Witches who have the symbol of spiral, are very rare. They can form their own elemental circles without others. They can feel all elements, as they can put their mind to it. However, witches, as rare as these, are very powerful. They can be a threat to other witches, making them want to strip them from their power or kill them from creating any more of their kind.”
“So, what you are saying is that I’m a rare witch?” I asked as I saw my aunt looking into my brother’s teacup.
“Both of you are.” She showed the inside of the teacup and smiled. My brother and I were shocked, we both smiled, not sure what we understood about it. I handed the book to my brother as we read.
“Will we both be able to make the cure?” I asked, but Aunt Marie had moved from her chair to the window. The sun was shining in, but she wasn’t burning up. I could see that she looked very worried. “Aunt Marie?” Logan and I walked over to her. She watched as our parents were fighting in the RV.
“We need to get everyone in the house, now.” She started to walk over to the door, but I grabbed her hand.
“But, why? Aren’t we safe?”
“You are now, but because of how rare your powers are, I need to keep my promise to your mother and keep you both safe.” I still didn’t let go. “Don’t worry, Ricky and his mother will be safe, as will your parents, I need to tell your father.” I let go of her arm.
“What can we do?” Logan asked.
“Look at that book I handed you and find a protection spell. Write down what you will need, I’ll go out and have someone get it.” Aunt Marie left and closed the door shut. I went to sit back down and look at the book, but Logan shut it.
“What happened before you came up here? I know something is wrong?” Logan asked. I didn’t want him to worry about James. I hate that he knows when something is wrong.
“Don’t worry about it, it was nothing. We need to focus on finding a protection spell.” I said as I looked up and saw him rolling his eyes. Hopefully, he can drop it so we can focus.

Unforgotten – Chapter 7

If you haven’t read Chapter 6, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/18/unforgotten-chapter-6/

Athena’s P.O.V.
“Here we are.” My father said as I held my brother’s hand and Ricky’s hand tight. We were finally here. We were finally going to meet our Aunt Marie. The building in front of us was a cute cottage, with a dirt pathway and a bridge to cross before reaching another pathway.
It was beautiful, especially with the sun setting behind it. Something to me felt different. It was like I could feel the elements. Maybe I was just thinking too hard?
“I don’t think this is a good idea, Tanner.” My mother said as he turned to her.
“We will all be fine.” My father pulled something out of his pocket, a bag with a bunch of bracelets. “Put these on. These have vervain in them. It is a type of plant that burns vampires and makes sure that they can’t control you with their powers.”
We all took one and placed them on our wrists. They smelled different from what I have ever smelled. A mix of lavender, mint and rose. I love this smell, but does it really work?
I started to walk towards the cottage, beside my father and brother. The others followed behind us. My father wanted us to stop in front of the steps before we came to the door. I felt Ricky’s hand held mine.
Before my father could knock on the door, the door flew open. A pain woman with dark blue hair came into sight. “Tanner!” She shouted as he hugged her tight. “Ow!” She said, as my father’s bracelet touched her skin. So it really did work.
She looked behind my father and saw everyone else. “Are those,” She looked like she was going to cry.
“Yes, these are your nephew and niece. Logan and Athena.”
“You don’t know how much I have wanted to meet you both. I’m your Aunt Marie.” She spoke as I came to her and hugged her. Logan joined in as we hugged her both. She looks back up to Ricky, his mother, and our mom as she smiled. “Jade, so good to see you.” My mother nodded as I saw my Aunt Marie’s eyes lingered to Ricky.
“I’m so sorry.” She said, looking directly to Ricky. Why was she saying sorry to him? Her eyes turned back to Tanner. “You aren’t here to watch me die, are you?” She questioned.
My father stayed silent. “We talk about this later, Tanner. Why do you all come in, don’t worry, I don’t bite.” She smirked as my father rolled his eyes. As we walked in, there was another man sitting at the piano. His eyes fell on me.
“Jade?” He spoke as he didn’t lose his eye contact with me. I blinked and he was right in front of me. I felt my heart pumping faster. He grazed his hand against my cheek before my mother spoke.
“James? Is it really you?” She spoke and his eye contact looked up at her. He hugged her tightly. So, that was James. “I missed you so much! I thought you were dead!” My mother pulled away and slapped him in the face.
“It’s a long story.” He spoke as he looked up at Tanner. “Thank you.”
“No, problem. I figured it was time for her to see an old friend.” Our father walked over to Logan and me, his hands on each of our shoulders. “James, meet Logan and Athena, our children.” James turned his look to me.
“Athena, you look exactly like your mother did when she was your age.” James spoke. Ricky coughed and my eyes turned to him. I noticed that James turned to him as well. He looked like he had angry in his eyes when he turned to look at Ricky’s mother. “Don’t tell me you brought him here for the reason I think.”
“No, we came with them because Ricky wants to meet his father. I don’t have any attention to have you do such a thing to my son.” She spoke, giving James a hug.
Aunt Marie came back into the living room and smiled. “Why don’t we all relax and catch up for a bit. I’ll be making supper for you all.”
“I thought you guys don’t eat what we eat.” Logan bluntly asked. Aunt Marie laughed.
“We don’t, but doesn’t mean we can’t. We just don’t taste it.” She explained as Ricky came up to Aunt Marie, whispering something to him that I couldn’t make out. Her eyes got big for a moment before looking back at me.
What was Ricky hiding from me? As he walked away with Aunt Marie in another room.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I walked over to Marie, as she finished speaking to Logan on the question he asked. She smiled when I came closer. “I need to talk to you about something.” I whispered, making sure no one else heard me. I then slowly showed her the necklace, that the woman in my dream gave me.
“Follow me.” She whispers back. “James, can you start boiling the water for me?” She spoke as James nodded. She then led me upstairs, to the two doors to the right, a door that looked different from the others. Black and locked. She unlocked it and opened it, nodding her head for me to get in.
As I walked in, the room was something that I never thought I would see again. The tiles were dark blue and the walls were wallpapered over with dark trees and leaves, so wasn’t the ceiling. There were plants right in front of the windows, with a heating element on top of them.
A couch and coffee table that sat in the middle of the room. A black pot, that was over the fireplace, that sat releasing stem. She motioned her hand for me to sit on the couch, she sat across in a chair that could almost pass as a throne.
I then pulled out the necklace and handed it to her. “Where did you get this? I haven’t seen this since my grandmother passed away.”
“I had a dream last night. A woman in a cloak came to me saying to give this to you. She said that Athena is the one who can create the cure for vampirism.” I said coughing. Marie handed me a tissue. “Thank you. She said that if Athena doesn’t create the potion, something dangerous will happen.”
“I know what she is talking about,” Marie said, standing up and lighting a few more candles. “Before I became a vampire, I was a true witch. My grandmother taught me all that I needed to know, but she placed the wrong curse on me. I were to have to have a baby with my true love in the next 8 full moons, but my true love was a vampire and so that’s when I started working on a cure for vampires.”
“Why did you turn?” I asked as she started to pour two cups of tea and placed them on the coffee table.
“I had no other choice. I miss calculated on how much time I had and Tanner begged my vampire lover to change me, so I could live longer and be able to see his kids grow up. When that happened, the spirits in my soul took all of my magic. I tried to get them to let me have it back, but because I was not alive, they didn’t want to me to lose control.”
“I know this might be a little personal, but what happened to your true love?” I asked and then took a sip of the tea that was in front of me. I felt stronger than before. “What’s in this?”
Marie chuckled and smiled. “It’s a type of tea I have created for sick people. I actually have Tanner sell it. It doesn’t heel your cancer, but it will keep you from feeling so sick and weak. Especially, when you deflower my niece.”
“How did you know-” I froze in my seat.
“I can read your mind. Being a vampire, it is one of my many gifts. I know that you have loved Athena for a very long time, but you want to give her the most romantic night of her life, which I plan on helping you with because I just love romance and I don’t want her to lose you. You seem like a wonderful young man. The last thing I want to do is ruin a relationship, again.” She took a sip of her, I saw that it made her cough a bit, or like it burned the back of her throat.
“Now, we need to keep this between you and I. Don’t worry about James, no one can hear what you are talking about or thinking in this room. Just make sure that you don’t think about it. I don’t want James’ getting his hopes up about a cure.” We both stood up and she handed me a tablet. “Keep these in your pockets and out of everyone’s sight, especially James.”
“What are they?” I asked as I looked down at the tablet, it was white and had a ‘BX O’ on it.
“They are blood tablets. We use them than drinking human’s blood. It craves the hunger and taste the same, but are less noticeable for people to notice. I created them, with the help of a friend, after I killed my first victim.”
“Why are you giving them to me?”
“Because, plan on becoming a vampire soon. I’m going to teach Athena how to become a witch.” She smirked.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
We were all sitting down at the table, enjoying the alfredo chicken and broccoli that our Aunt Marie and James’ made us. I looked over at Ricky, who looked a little better than he did this morning, he was sitting next to Athena smiling.
“Anyone like desert?” James asked.
“No, I think I’m pretty full, but I wanted to chat up with you some more.” She looked next to our father as he smiled and nodded.
“I’m pretty full, I wanted to go get my crochet hooks from the RV.” Athena spoke as I was about to go with her, but Ricky had excused himself already.
“My dear brother, I need to have a word with you and my nephew.” I looked at her a questioned why she would want to talk about me. She sat up from the table and took care of the plates. “Meet me outside on the back porch, I’ll be right out.” She spoke as my father and I walked out back and saw a beautiful garden out back.
There were a hanging porch swing and a rocking chair in the far side of the porch, I sat down, looking at dad.
“Do you know what it is about?” I asked, but my father shook his head. Aunt Marie finally came out and sat down in the rocking chair, lighting a candle.
“Please sit Tanner, we need to talk about something.” She said. My father did as he was told and she pulled out the necklace. My father looked shocked.
“Where did you get that? I thought it was with grandma.”
“Ricky gave it to me. I know you don’t believe the witchcraft stuff, but I need you to hear me out.” She sighed. “Athena is the one who can create the cure for vampirism.”
“Wait, what?” I said I was shocked. Athena has always been interested in stuff like witchcraft, but I can’t imagine her practicing it. “Are you okay, Aunt Marie? I think you are talking nonsense.”
“You may think so until she learns.” She looked back over to my father who was still trying to process what she was talking about. “Grandma came to Ricky in his dreams and wants me to teach your daughter. I have a feeling that she will create the cure, but Tanner, it’s only a matter of time.”
“There is a cure? I thought there wasn’t? Eli told us there wasn’t.” My father spoke. Who’s Eli? What does he have to do with it?
“I was working on a cure for Eli, but because of what happened to me, I never finished it, but Athena can, she just needs to learn. Which is why I figured you and Logan would understand than Jade.” She said. Aunt Marie grabbed my hands, and she looked in my eyes. “She could even save Ricky. We can turn him, he would be cured and then he would be back as a human. She wouldn’t lose him and neither will you.”
This was a lot of information for me to process. So, we turn Ricky into a vampire, so that he doesn’t die from cancer, but then cure him from being a vampire and he is well and better again? I was confused. I took a deep breath and then nodded. “I’ll do it. I’ll help out.”
Aunt Marie smiled and gave me a hug. “One more thing, you can’t tell your mother or James. Tanner needs to tell him. I’ll talk to Athena.”
Then the back door flew open, causing a loud bang. There stood James. “Marie, you aren’t turning that cancer patient into a fucking murder like us!”

Unforgotten – Chapter 6

If you haven’t read Chapter 5, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/11/unforgotten-chapter-5/

Athena’s P.O.V.
Ricky and I talked all night long, until I fell asleep on his chest. I fell his hands grazed my hair, back and forth. It felt heavenly. I wanted to be wrapped up in his scent with him. Spend all the time I can with him. I just can’t believe he never told me until now.
I wanted to spend every moment with him. Up until his last breath, but I was scared that he would die before I never got a chance to say goodbye.
I slowly got up from the bed and saw that Ricky wasn’t there. I looked around and then almost hit my head of the RV, trying to get out of the bedroom, when I saw my brother eating pancakes at the table. I looked over at the driver’s seat and didn’t see Ricky.
“Where is he?” I demanded to my brother. I was afraid something happened to him. I knew my brother could see the panic in my face and pointed at the other seat that had a plate of pancakes.
“He went to go get some iced coffee.” My brother said before stuffing his face. I slowly sat down and looked at him. I wasn’t hungry, I wouldn’t eat until I knew he was okay.
“Do you know?” I bluntly asked as my brother nodded. “How long?” My brother took a sip of juice and cleared his throat before replying.
“Yesterday and I had no idea anything was wrong.” He said. I wanted to continue the conversation, but I left it alone when I saw Ricky. I was relieved. He smiled when he saw me and I returned the smile. He placed the coffees down in front of us and sat next to me.
“I didn’t want to wake you up.” Ricky said, taking a sip of his coffee. “We are parked at the airport and we are going to wait until our parents get off the plane. Then we will head off.”
I stayed silent and slowly started to eat the pancakes. Knowing that our parents are going to be getting off the plane any moment now, I wasn’t ready for what was going to happen.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
I held Ricky’s hand tightly as we waited for our parent’s to get off the plane. I bet he could feel my hand sweating because I was nervous of what my mom was going to say. I don’t know what my dad would say, but I know that he wouldn’t freak out as much as mom would.
“So, uh, I know this isn’t the best time in the world to ask this, but do you want to be together, together?” Ricky asked as my face started to feel red. I looked up at him and smiled.
“Yes.” I said, as he returned the smile and placed a kiss on my forehead. I felt very giggly inside because he was my first ever boyfriend and I was glad it was him. Even though he doesn’t have much time left, I still wanted to be with him.
I looked back at the hallway and saw our parents walking towards us, I was too excited to see my dad again that I ran and hugged him tightly. He dropped his bags as I jumped into his arms.
“Hey, sweetheart.” He said as he wrapped his arms around me. I could feel tears dropping from my eyes onto his jacket. He put me down and my mother wrapped her arms around me. I wanted to push away but kept on hugging me anyway.
“Mom, you can stop hugging her now.” Logan butted in as she realized that she was still hugging me and hugged Logan instead.
“I missed you both very much.” She said as she finally let go of Logan. She frowned when she saw Ricky hugging his mother, then she laid her eyes back on me. “Logan, can you talk my bags for me dear?” Logan nodded and everyone else started to head out of the airport.
I started to walk, but my mother stopped me in my tracks. “You do realize he is dying, right?” She said as I looked back at Ricky walking away with the others.
I turned back and looked at my mother. “I know, but if dad was sick, you would stay with him until the very end, right?” I sighed, waiting for my mother to snap back. “I love him and I’ll do anything for him. Just like you would’ve done for James, if you never met dad, right?” She froze where she stood as I started to walk away.
I shouldn’t of said anything, but it slipped. I walked faster because I had a feeling she was going to be very pissed of me reading her journals. Hopefully, she wouldn’t make a seen in front of everyone.
____________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
“How you feeling hunny?” My mother asked me. We went outside to let Athena and Logan talk with their parents. My mother had a worry look in her face. She’s been worry ever since we found out, but I told her to still treat me like she would normally.
“I’m okay, mom. You don’t need to worry.” I said as she still looked at me worried.
“When was the last time you ate something?” She asked. I paused and rubbed the back of my head, trying to stall. I drank coffee this morning, but I haven’t eaten a lot. It’s been like this for the past few days.
“I’m fine, don’t worry,” I reassured her, again. I don’t think she was buying it, but hopefully, she got the hint to lay off the questions.
“If you say so. Let’s get in the RV, it’s a little chilly right now.” She said as she went in. I wanted to take a few breaths on my own until something in my stomach didn’t seem right. I felt it coming up and ran to the end of the RV, puking.
I coughed and realized that it was blood that was showing. As long as I can hold on for another day, I should be fine.
_____________________________________________________________________________
“You sure you are okay with driving?” I asked Tanner, as he nodded.
“I’m fine, go get some sleep with the girls, if you want.” He replied as I sat in the passenger side of the RV.
“I’ll just hang out with you. Figured you would need the company.” I said as I felt a little chilly and grabbed my sweatshirt and pulled it over my head. I took a sip of my water bottle as Tanner turned the heat up. “Thanks.”
“No problem. You okay?” He asked, still focus on the road.
“Yeah, just cancer.” I joked, I coughed again. Nothing came up, thankfully. “Hopefully, my father wants to meet me.”
“I don’t see why not. You are an amazing, respectable, young man. I just want to let you know that I’ve always considered you a son in my eyes.” Tanner looked at me and smiled before his eyes landed back on the road. “I wish I could take it away from you-” He paused in a long thought because he spoke.
I wondered what he was thinking of. “No, it wouldn’t work. I don’t want to put you through it.”
“What?” I wondered.
“My sister is a vampire, but I don’t want you to live with the curse of being a vampire.” He explained. Becoming a vampire? Not sure about that, but it would give me more time to be with Athena. We could both turn and be together forever, but I don’t want to do that to her if she doesn’t want to. “Don’t think of it as a cure. You won’t be able to control your thrust for blood. My sister has been turned as long as the twins have been alive and she still has trouble. That’s why she is ending it all and killing herself.”
“Isn’t there a cure for it?”
“No, my sister was a witch and was working on a cure for a friend of herself, but when she turned, she lost all her powers.” He explained.
She was working on a cure? For who? I stayed sight and ended up falling asleep.
“I know you can hear me.” A voice spoke, I opened my eyes and sat up. I was in a graveyard. I looked around, I wasn’t in the RV. I stood up fast and then saw a figure. “You are dreaming. Relax.” The voice spoke again, and the figure was slowly starting to come to me.
It was in a dark velvet cloak. Then it walked closer into the moonlight, where they took their hood off. A woman with grey hair, her face covered in wrinkles from old age. She had something on her head that showed a Wiccan pentagon.
I took a few steps away. What is this? What is happening to me?
“You have nothing to fear.” She spoke. “I have something very important that I need to tell you.”
Somehow, I didn’t feel as frightened as I was. She reminded me of someone. Someone I knew, but I couldn’t remember who.
“Who are you and what do you want with me?” I asked. Trying to stay brave. I almost bumped into a gravestone, as I turned around, I dropped to my knees. Looking at the name of the gravestone. With my name on it. I was speechless.
“This is what will happen if you don’t do what I tell you to do, Ricky.” I turned my head and faced her. How did she know my name? What the hell is going on?
“How did-” I tried to reply, but she spoke before I could answer.
“No more questions. I don’t have much more time.” She sighed and then grabbed my arm, pulling me to a giant wooden maple tree. It looked like the one back at home in the graveyard. Where I went with Athena and Logan to drop flowers off to their grandmothers grave.
She placed her hand on the tree and a passage opened up, followed by stairs. We entered the tree, with the tree closing up behind us as we walked down into a smooth wooden hallway, before entering a giant room with another tree grown inside the one we just entered.
She stopped in her tracks as we faced the left wall. A bunch of names was carved into the tree. Some of them crossed out and others painted over in different colors. I froze when I saw Athena’s name.
“These are the past, present, and future witches, from the beginning. Athena is a witch and she is the only one to cure the vampires. That means if you turn, she will be able to cure you, but she must come here and learn.” She faced me and handed me a necklace. “When you meet Marie, hand her this, she will know what to do.” I looked down at the necklace and saw a tiny bottle of liquid inside the wooden heart-shaped necklace.
“What is this?” I asked.
“It is a potion that will allow her to enter this place because she is a vampire, her powers of being a witch were taken away from her, but it is my fault she is who she is. I placed, what I thought was a cure for ugliness on her, but somehow something went wrong and it was the wrong one. I need to fix things now because if Athena doesn’t cure her curse of vampirism, something terribly bad will happen.”
I woke up in sweats. I looked around and I was in the RV. I felt relieved. Daylight burned in my eyes, as I turn to look to the back of the RV, everyone was awake and eating lunch. Athena smiled when she saw me get up.
“Morning sweetie, you want something to eat?” My mother asked as I nodded.
“Yeah, let me change my clothes and I’ll eat something.” I said as my mother nodded and continued to eat what looked like Wendy’s on the table.
I walked into the bedroom in the back and shut the door behind me, I checked my sweatshirt pocket and was surprised that I felt the necklace from my dream. I took a good look at it and touched the soft wooden carvings of the heart itself, and just like the woman said, the vial that I give to Marie.
I just hope that this works.

Unforgotten – Chapter 5

If you haven’t read Chapter 4, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/04/unforgotten-chapter-4/

Logan’s P.O.V.
“So, where are we going, Ricky?” I asked as I turned to look back at my sister, who had fallen asleep on the RV’s couch. I still can’t believe that I agreed to this. It was for Athena, that’s for sure.
“Well, I figured we would leave Washington and just drive for a day or two. I want to head to Cali, but I’m still debating it.” He spoke, still looking back onto the road. “I’m sorry if I dragged you with us, but I had to ask her.”
I looked at him, as he looked into the mirror and smiled as he watched my sister sleeping for a split second. “I really love her. I’m just shocked that she said yes. Didn’t even think about it for a second.” I was kinda surprised because this isn’t something that Athena normally does.
I wonder why she wanted to all of a sudden leave? I pulled out a map of the United States and saw different states circled. California, New York, Nevada, New Jersey, and Florida were all circled. One was circled in a different color, which caught my eye. It was New Jersey. It was strange, but the ink looked familiar.
“I know you do.” I sighed, I looked over at him, watched him as he watched the road. “Why did you plan to leave?”
He didn’t flinch when the question was brought up, he sighed. He stayed quiet for a few minutes before he had a chance to speak. “I want to meet my father. I haven’t told you or Athena this, but the real reason why your mother has always wanted me to stay away from you guys, especially, Athena, is that I have cancer.”
I was shocked. Normally, we have always told each other everything, but this was something that he hasn’t mention to either of us. God, if Athena finds out, she is going to be crushed. Ricky turned into a gas station and pulled up to one of the pumps.
Shutting off the engine and turned to face me. I could now see in his eyes how sick he truly was. It hit me how much he has changed, but why did he felt the need to not tell me? Or Athena? “Please.” He stared at me dead in the eyes. “Don’t tell Athena. I’ll tell her when I’m ready.”
Ricky got out of the RV and slammed the door. Which woke Athena up. I turned to look at her and smiled. “We are at a store if you want something to eat.” I said, as she sat up from the couch and yawned.
“Sounds good to me.” She got up and left the RV. I was about to leave as well, but my phone started to ring. I didn’t even check to see who it was and just picked it up. “Hello?”
“Logan, how’s everything?” I heard my father speak.
“Fine, but did you know, about Ricky?” I asked. My father knew I was very blunt about stuff. I could hear him being silent.
“He told you, didn’t he?”
“Yeah, Athena doesn’t know, but is that why you let us go with him?”
“Sort of, but I want to tell your sister and you in the morning. I love you both.” He said.
“Love you too dad.” I hung up. All this of this information was hitting me all at once. Ricky has cancer. Dad came back. We have an aunt who is a vampire.
I think I just need to sleep on this all.
_____________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
The next day, I pulled into an RV camp, just so we could all sleep. Logan walked over to the store to grab some more supplies. Once he gets back, we are going to call their dad and let them know what else is going on.
I watched Athena sleeping, she looked so peaceful. I finally convinced her to sleep in the bed that was in the back of the RV. I climbed into bed with her and got under the covers. She rolled over and laid on my chest.
My heart started to beat faster. This has been something I have dreamed, for a very long time, although, I won’t be able to do it much longer. I wanted to spend as much time as I could with her before I go.
A tear fell from my cheek as I thought about it some more. I didn’t have the heart to tell her. I didn’t want to tell her, but I couldn’t keep it a secret. I was about to fall asleep until I heard the RV door open and close.
Logan walked in with a few bags and placed them on the table. I got up, making sure not to wake up Athena.
“She still sleeping?” Logan asked as I nodded and then pointed back outside.
“I need to talk to you.” I said as Logan put some of the stuff away and then walked back outside with me. I closed the door and paced back and forth before I started to throw up. Logan started to rub my back.
“You okay, man?” Logan asked as I stood back up and leaned against the RV. “It’s getting worse, isn’t it?”
“Yeah,” I said, taking a moment to breathe. “Which is why I want to ask you something.”
“Anything.”
“Tonight, I was wondering if you can let Athena and I have the RV to ourselves?” I was nervous about asking him. “I need to tell her because I don’t have much time.”
“Sure man. Are you gonna, do it?” Logan said, which I could see that it was uncomfortable for him to ask. “I don’t care, but just use protection.”
“Only if she wants to. I won’t force her.” The RV door swung open and Athena stepped down. “What time is it?” She asked.
“It’s about noon, but we need to call dad, once you eat something,” Logan said as Athena nodded and walked back into the RV. Logan turned to me. “How much longer do you think you have left?”
“Not sure, I’m a ticking time bomb.” I chuckled, it wasn’t funny, but it was true. I rubbed the back of my neck as we both go back inside the RV.
_______________________________________________________________________
“How is everyone?” I heard Tanner ask, I waited and wanted Athena or Logan to answer.
“We are okay, Dad, but we are still really confused on why you let us go with Ricky.” Athena asked as she looked at Logan and me.
“Well, you guys are going to meet your Aunt Marie. She’s in California and since Ricky is going there, I figured you guys would tag along and meet her too. You’re mother and I are going to head out and meet you guys there tomorrow.” he explained. I’m glad he didn’t tell him the real reason why I’m heading to Cali.
“Why now?” Logan asked.
“One of your mother’s best friends had died, but come to find out, my sister saved him and turned him. He and my sister want to meet you, but they are going to burn in the sun in the next week since there is no cure to vampirism. I figured you guys would want to meet both of them.” We heard him pause. “I’m so sorry we never told them about you guys.”
“It’s okay, at least we are going to meet them now.” Athena said.
“It’s not okay, I wish I had told you guys sooner. Anyway, your mother, Ricky’s mother, and I are on our way. We are about to board the plane. Stay safe and we love you.” Their father hung up. I got up and sat down in the driver’s seat.
“We better get going. I have to meet them at the airport.” I said as I started the RV. Before I could switch it in gear, Logan stopped me.
“Let me drive.” I nodded and got out of the seat as he whispered. “You need to tell her, so spend time with her in the bedroom. Just shut the door. I don’t want to hear anything.” I smirked as I looked up at Athena.
I grabbed the box of pizza that Logan picked up before we called their father and brought it in the bedroom, where Athena was crocheting away. I shut the door and sat on the bed next to her.
She stopped crocheting and placed them on the nightstand and grabbed a piece of pizza. As I grabbed one, she took a bite of hers.
“Are you sure Logan can drive this?” She asked as I could see she was a little worried about him driving an RV all by himself.
“He’s fine. Listen, there is something I need to tell you.” I said, but she put the pizza back in the box and moved it off the bed. I finished the piece and then looked at her. “You need to be calm when I tell you, okay?”
She nodded as she got closer to me. I didn’t want to tell her. She was already going through a lot, but she needed to know. Especially, if I’ll not be around much longer. I took a deep breath and looked into her eyes.
“I love you, Athena.” I paused and then cleared my throat. “I’m dying. I have cancer.” Her beautiful face went from smiling to sadness. I wanted to hug her, but she just stared at me.
“H-How long?” She asked. I was confused.
“How long what?”
“How long have you known and not told me?!” Her voice started to rise. “Does Logan know? Do my parents know?”
I grabbed her hand, but she pulled away and moved herself away from me. “Answer the questions.”
“I found out when I graduated. They ran tests and I’ve got maybe another month or two to live.” She placed her hands over her mouth as she cried more. I wish I had told her sooner, but my mother beat it to tell her mother. That’s why she didn’t want me around Athena, she didn’t want me to fall in love with her and then I die.
I went over to hug her, this time she let me. I wrapped my arms around her and held her as long as I could. I didn’t want to let go. I didn’t want her to let go. I wanted to spend as much time as I had with her.
“Say something, please.” I asked, I looked down at her and looked into her eyes, she was heartbroken. It was all because of me. I went to kiss her forehead, but she moved and I got her lips instead. They were warm and loving, just like the last time we kissed.
I pulled away, but she held my head in her hands. “Please, just let me kiss you.” She spoke softly.
“I just don’t want it to go further unless you really want to.” I said. She stared into my eyes, again.
“I want to. I want you, Ricky.” She said as she pulled me into a kiss again. Laying us both down on the bed. I pulled away again. Looking into her eyes, I could see the worry that was showing in her eyes. Her hands started to linger down to my pants.
“Are you sure you are ready?” I asked as she stared at me. “I don’t think you are. I think you are scared to lose me.”
Athena’s face looked blank for a second as she pushed away from me, siting up on the bed, wiping the tears that just started to fall. “Do you know how long I’ve wanted to be with you?” She paused and turned to look at me. “I know we are both young, but I had planned a future of us. We were going to go through college together, get a beautiful house, get married and have kids running around the house.”
I stayed silent. I’ve always thought of being with Athena, building a life with her too, but I stopped thinking about it all after I found out I was dying. It was the reason I pushed her away. I didn’t want her to think that we could be together forever unless it could happen.
“I love you, Ricky. More than you know.” She sighed and covered her eyes. Her voice was starting to crack. “You lied to me. I’m sorry if I wanted to share something special with you before you die. If you don’t want to let me, it’s fine. I’ll just go.” Before she could stand up and leave, I grabbed her arm and pulled her back down to me.
“Don’t leave, please. Just let me explain.” I sat up and held both of her soft hands. “I-I didn’t know how to tell you. Your mother figured it would be easier to not mention it, but she was wrong. I was wrong. I should’ve told you sooner. We just need to take this day by day until my last. The one thing I want from you is your happiness.”
I wiped her tears and smiled at her. She was so beautiful. I just can’t imagine leaving her side.

Unforgotten – Chapter 4

If you haven’t read Chapter 3, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/01/28/unforgotten-chapter-3/

Logan’s P.O.V.
After I said all that stuff, I went up to the tree house. I could hear them arguing from my room and I just wanted to take in that all the information Mom said in her journals, was in fact true.
My phone went off and Ricky’s name popped up. I opened the message and read it: Athena is with me. Just a heads up.
I packed a bowl and took a high. Releasing it and replying back to Ricky: Thks man, a lot of shit happened today.
I heard someone come up to the tree house and Dad appeared. He sat down on the other chair and put his head in his hands. “How bad has your mother been drinking?” He asked as I handed him my bowl pack.
“Bad. Athena hasn’t noticed as much as I have, but she’s drinking a wine bottle a day, almost.” I replied. My Dad grabbed my lighter and took a hit.
“Where’s Athena?” He asked. Handing me the bowl pack.
“She’s with Ricky. Ricky just texted me, letting me know.” I said, I knew I could trust Dad, with where Athena was. He’s always liked Ricky and treated him like a son. “Just don’t tell Mom, she doesn’t want Athena and Ricky to get together.”
Dad shook his head. He knew that Athena has always had a thing for Ricky, I have too, but Mom just wants Athena to see other people and not just one guy. “Your mother just doesn’t want her to follow her footsteps.”
“I know, but the more she tells them not to be together, they will find a way.” I said, taking another hit. “I’m sorry we read her journals. I know we shouldn’t of done it, but we were curious with her past.”
“It’s not your fault. We should’ve told you guys sooner about my sister, but how much did you read?” Dad asked as I took another hit and handed him the bowl pack.
“We know about Mom’s childhood and that there was this ‘James’ guy. We stopped reading after she mentioned Marie being a vampire.” I sighed. “I mean Aunt Marie.”
My Dad tapped my shoulder. “I’m sorry we are now just telling you, but I went to go see her. The reason why she hasn’t been around or mentioned is that we have always feared that she would feed on you guys.”
I played with the lighter, flicking it off and on. I kinda understood where my parents were coming from, but I wish they told us sooner. “I understand, but I want to meet her. I’m sure Athena does too.”
I looked up at my father, as he pulled out his phone and handed it to me. Showing me a picture of a woman. She had long black hair and her eyes we a golden yellow. Her skin was pale, but she beautiful. I looked back up at my father. “This her?” I asked. He nodded.
“Yes. You can meet her, but I have to explain something to you kids.” He sighed and wrapped his arm around my neck. “I missed you guys so much.”
I nodded. My dad and I smoked and hung out, just like we would’ve done on a normal day, but I was glad he was back home. We needed him.
________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I finally parked my car at my usual place, it was were I went when I wanted to be alone. Only this time, I wasn’t. I was with the girl I loved. I turned off the engine and we just sat in silence. I looked over at Athena and couldn’t help to notice how beautiful she looked.
She held a blanket in her hands, must of been something she was working on, but they had my favorite color all over it. Navy blue. I waited to see if she was going to speak, but she kept looking down at the blanket.
“I’m glad you called.” I spoke, hoping that would get a conversation started.
“A lot’s going on.” She finally answered. She then handed me the blanket. I smiled at her. “Here, I made this for you. I figured I would give it to you.”
I took the blanket, it was soft to the touch, but it meant more to me than she knew. It was made by her, and it would be something I would never let anything happen to it.
“Athena, thank you. I love it.” I said. I wanted to kiss her, but I didn’t want her to get upset or hurt, by me. “Listen, I need to tell you something.”
I took a deep breath in. “I’m leaving.” I hurt for me to say it, but it needed to be done. I was leaving. I have been planning this for awhile, but it was something that I have been wanting to do for awhile. I had gotten a RV and was planning on traveling the world. I had managed to transfer to online classes, until I found where I wanted to be.
Her face looked hurt as I said those words. “Leaving?” She spoke. I tear stumbled down her cheek in shock. “W-Why?” She asked.
“I’ve finally managed to save up some money to travel and I’m leaving. Tonight.” Athena’s face was still in shock. It seemed she didn’t know what to say. I really didn’t want to ask this, but it slipped out. “I wanted to ask you if you wanted to come with me, but-”
“Yes.” She interrupted me, I was shocked with her answer. She answered so quickly that my mind had to remind myself what I just asked. She said yes… I wasn’t expecting her to say anything, especially not right away.
“Are you serious? Don’t you want to think about it?” I asked.
“Yes, I’m sure, but on one condition.”
“What’s that?”
“Logan has to come with us.” She said. I don’t think Logan would leave with us, but I guess it’s worth a try.
“Of course.” I paused and smiled at her. I moved my face in closer to hers and she didn’t move a muscle as I pulled some hair behind her ear. “You are so beautiful, Athena.” I said as our foreheads touched together, our lips almost inches away. “Be with me, Athena. Let’s be together.”
I leaned in and pressed my lips up against hers. The feeling never changed, from the last time we kissed. It was still as amazing as before. I felt myself starting to get hot, just from it, but I pulled away, just staring at her.
“Yes.” Athena said, smiling at me, her cheeks red from probably blushing so much. “I’ll be with you.” Once she said those words, my heart started to beat very fast.
I turned, to start the car. This was going to be a new journey for both of us. A fresh start for all three of us.
_________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V
My heart was still fluttering as we drove back to my house. My dream had come true, but I still didn’t believe it was real. Ricky was holding my hand tight as he drove. I can’t believe I was agreeing to this. Leaving with Ricky, starting fresh, hopefully, my brother would come with us.
I pulled out my phone and texted Logan that I was on my way home, making sure that Mom wouldn’t freak out and get upset over what I was going to do. Even with my Dad finally home, I wanted to leave with Ricky.
As he pulled into my driveway and got out of the car and walked over the other side of the car. Ricky smiled at me as I leaned in to give him a kiss. “I’ll be right back.” I said as I headed up the drive way and into my house.
I quickly walked into Logan’s room and closed the door behind me. “Finally, you’re back.” Logan said as he sat up onto his bed. “Dad wouldn’t tell me anything until you got here.”
“Well, I’m not staying for long.” I spoke. Logan had a shocked look on his face.
“Wait, what do you mean you aren’t staying long? Athena, what’s going on?” He asked as I looked down at my phone, Ricky sent me a text.
Everything alright?
I replied back saying to give me an extra few minutes. I took a deep breath. “I’m leaving. With Ricky. Tonight.” I said. My brother stood up and looked confused. “Look, I want you to come with us. Ricky is leaving to travel across the country and find somewhere to settle down. He asked me to go and I said yes, but I told him I wanted you to come as well.”
Logan started to pace in his room, back and forth. He stopped in front of me, trying to understand what I had just said to him. “So, you are going to leave with Ricky and never come back?”
“Yes.”
“You want to do that now, even when Dad finally came back?” Logan asked, again. “You are sure you want to do this?” He asked again.
“I’m sure, but I don’t want to leave you behind.” He sighed and threw his hand in his hair.
“Fuck it, let’s go.” He said as a smiled showed on my face, he grabbed his back pack and started to pack. I ran into my room and did the same. I grabbed my crocheting hooks and some of my books, but I stopped when I saw the photograph I had. It was a picture of all of us, 5 years ago. My parents, Logan and me. When we were at our happiness. I threw it into the bag and packed more clothes.
My bedroom didn’t look empty, but it wasn’t the same. I grabbed my box underneath my bed and took all the cash I had. It wasn’t much, but I had saved it over time with babysitting the past 2 summers. Tossing that into the bag and opening my window.
Logan was already waiting for me and grabbed my first bag, heading over to Ricky, who parked on the side. Before I was able to get out of the window, I heard my name. “Athena, wait.”
I turned and saw my father. He didn’t come to pull me back into my bedroom, he gave me a hug and handed me two things. The family laptop and a letter addressed to Logan and I. “I love you and your brother so much. Keep in contact with me and I’ll meet up with you guys soon.”
I was confused. “What do you mean, dad?”
“I’ll explain later, but go. I’ll be calling you guys in the morning.” He gave me a kiss on the forehead and helped me out of my window. I ran over to the car and got into the back seat, as I watched my childhood home become distance from between us.
I took a deep breath and looked out the window. This path was a new one, something that I never thought would happen.
