Chapter 5

  • Eric
  • I watched her sleep. Who could have guessed destiny had fated us to meet.
  • She looked just like Tatia
  • It took all the control I had left not to burst in and run off with her.
  • I quietly entered her room and locked it.
  • The skylight was a warm blanket of shimmery silver. My wolf danced around awaiting release, seeing Tatia's lookalike made it even worse.
  • It sought escape. I reached into my breast pocket and took out my pills.I swallowed one and kept the rest. My wolf struggled with being subdued. My migraines returned and my sight blurred.
  • "You lose." I sneered to my wolf.
  • It stopped resisting as the effect of the pill ran in full effect.
  • I had just three left which meant I had to get her before I ran out of my pills.
  • I ran my hands through her hair ravishing the velvety silkiness. It reminded me of the wild nights I shared with Tatia under the moonlight.
  • It's funny how someone who looked just like her was on the other side of the world.
  • She shivered from my touch. I had to stop. I subdued my desire and hastened out of the room.
  • I returned back my room but I couldn't get the rest I needed.
  • I only had days to take Tatia's lookalike with me or lose the Kingdom to Conrad.
  • I needed to get on their good side yet, was it possible to get her to fall head over heels in love with me.
  • Was it possible?
  • I had to try. I couldn't stop, not yet. This was for Tatia.
  • I closed my eyes and tried to clear my thoughts.
  • Tomorrow would tell if I stood a chance.
  • ***
  • Maisy
  • Angel held me close and tugged on the hem of my dress. I felt it fall loosely from my skin. His eyes were a temptation far worse than the call of the sea.
  • "Should we do this?" He husked, planting small kisses on my goosebumpy skin.
  • I shivered slightly but the truth was I didn't want him to stop.
  • "What should we? It feels so good." I retorted and pulled him closer.
  • He smiled and continued undressing me. He didn't stop until there was nothing but our skins touching.
  • He carried me in his arms and placed me on the bed.
  • "I'll be back." He winked and left me.
  • I grumbled and my soul ached for his body.
  • He couldn't just leave me like this, Not with the raw passion he had ignited in me.
  • He needed to put out the flames.
  • He came by a full moments later, butt naked. My eyes instantly fell on his member.
  • It was a shame I couldn't see what was going to pleasure me soon. His whole body was silhouetted.
  • "Come to the light." I requested.
  • "Why Tatia?" He teased.
  • It felt good but who was Tatia?
  • He came into the light and I gasped.
  • "Those starry eyes."
  • My eyes flickered.
  • Goodness, it was just a dream. I got off my pelt and reimagined my sexual dream with the stranger.
  • It was weird because I rarely had dreams and when I did, they happened to be nightmares mostly about someone dying or demons haunting me.
  • My nipples hardened as I remembered how delicate his touch was. His voice...It was divine.
  • "Good morning." Someone said, bringing me back to reality.
  • Handsome stranger was standing right there leaning seductively by the edge of the door and worse, he was shirtless.
  • In a way, I got what I wanted. I saw the light.
  • "You're awake." I blurted.
  • "Yes. You must be the one who saved me." He said.
  • His voice was just the way it sounded in my daydream.
  • God! Was I losing it?
  • I took a seat back at my pelt knowing this was going to conversation was going to lead to small talk.
  • Where was father when you needed him?
  • He walked a bit closer to me and began.
  • "May I know your name?" He politely requested.
  • "Maisy Quinn," I replied, putting my hands over my breast to conceal the fact that they were standing erect and knowing he would see the effect he had on me just being so close.
  • "I'm Eric. Eric..."
  • "Clarke." I cut in.
  • "I see you know me." He beamed.
  • He had perfect white teeth that worsened my situation.
  • " I don't know you but my father knows your family...What they did."
  • Eric adjusted his posture, suddenly uncomfortable that I made such a remark about his family.
  • It proved father wasn't wrong.
  • "What happened to you?"I said, changing the conversation.
  • "I...was attacked by a wild animal." He replied.
  • "How's your wound?"
  • "Better." He thumped his chest proving he was another idiot that would cause themselves pain to prove Macho.
  • "I see you're awake." My father broke in on us.
  • "Yes. I just wanted to know where I was." Eric proclaimed, seeing how strangely my father studied him.
  • "Good. Let's talk." My father said and they both headed outside.
  • I exhaled heavily seeing Eric gone. I locked the door and collapsed back to my pelt.
  • That was the hottest yet awkward moment I had in my life.
  • Today was going to be a good day, I could almost taste it.
  • ***Spencer
  • I lead the house outside. The splendor of the sun and the floral breeze that washed down on me, engulfing me in its essence calmed me down.
  • It was a struggle to act calm being so close to a Clarke.
  • "So..." I began, not even knowing where to start.
  • "I was thinking since you're Hale and healthy now, you can get going."
  • The boy was hardly disturbed by my decision but he didn't mean he agreed.
  • "I appreciate your hospitality but where I'm coming from is quite distant. Could I stay for a few more days?"
  • He asked politely, This was getting difficult.
  • I just felt like lashing out loud at him. I wanted to spit out what a bad person his kind was but I wasn't like them.  There was this impression I was obsessed with achieving when I talked with him.
  • The memories....it had to be them.
  • I wanted to prove I was good and would always be better than a Clarke. If he wanted a few days more, I would gladly give it to him.
  • I mean, what harm could he cause in just a few days?
  • "Ok. You have three more days." I firmly stated.
  • "I appreciate your kind gesture." He said then turned to leave.
  • In my own house.
  • "Wait!" I stopped him, there was something I wanted to know, "You haven't told me your name or where you're from."
  • "I'm so sorry. I'm Eric, Eric Clarke and I come from Nodith." He answered.
  • "Your signet tells me you are noble blooded. Why would a Blueblood venture far from his home and all alone?"
  • I noticed how tense he became. He avoided my glare.
  • Now that was something I wanted to see.
  • "I'm looking for someone." He divulged.
  • I could tell he didn't want to disclose any further so I kept my thought to myself but I made a mental note to observe him more.
  • "I've been to Nodith once before. Who's your father?" I inquired, wanting to confirm my suspicion.
  • "The late King Richard Clarke." He replied.
  • Wait! Richard became king and he's dead.
  • I put that aside quickly. I had gotten what I wanted. He was Richard's son and a part of me knew this could be a no accident.
  • He was here for something.
  • Maisy joined in before I could ask any more questions.
  • "Father, I'm going to the river." She said.
  • "I would really need that." Eric chipped in, taking a sniff of his scent.
  • The bastard just wanted some alone time with Maisy. It was an uncomfortable moment for me and my "fatherly insecurities".
  • I couldn't follow Maisy to the river. She would feel I didn't trust her even if it was the boy I was worried about plus I had to get to the plains for my bet. 
  • I convinced myself to let it go. I trusted Maisy.
  • "Ok but meet me at the desert plains after."
  • She nodded and headed off with the boy tagging along.
  • "Clarke!"
  • ***
  • Eric
  • She didn't talk to me all the way to the river.
  • I was dying to start a conversation but I didn't want to come off as desperate even if I was.
  • "Stay here. I'll go for a dip first." She said, jerking me off my thoughts.
  • "Ok," I replied.
  • She left for the bright green waters at the distance.
  • I watched her strip down and when it got to her undergarments, she caught me staring.
  • I turned to give her the privacy she needed to get it all off.
  • My wolf took over for a split second and I tilted to where she was before.
  • She was gone.
  • My senses heightened and I could hear her heart thumping fast.
  • Probably the adrenaline from jumping into the cold water.
  • My legs lost control and I began to walk towards where I could sense her.
  • She gasped when she saw me.
  • "What are you doing here?" She demanded, cupping her breasts.
  • Her cheeks were red tomatoes and it made me smirk.
  • "I got tired waiting so I came here," I announced like an insensitive prick that I was.
  • "Well leave. I'm naked here." She panicked.
  • It was enjoyable, watching her struggle to cover up her exposed body. She was beginning to shiver now.
  • "You look cold." I teased.
  • She gave me a disapproving stare and then she did the most daring thing I had ever seen a woman do.
  • She rushed out of the water and I saw fire.
  • No, I felt it. My face burned.
