Chapter 136 Breathed
- When my eyes adjust to the dark meeting room, the first thing I see is obsidian eyes staring back at me. My heart that had been hammering in my chest, skips a beat, the blood in my ears is roaring, as he drinks me in like his life depends on it. I can’t look away, I hold his gaze almost too afraid he’ll disappear if I do. The tears that had dried up, threaten to come back full force and it takes everything I have to fight them back. It feels as if I’m feather light as the weight that had been on my shoulders lifts. I sway on my feet and feel the floor rushing up to meet me.
- A firm arm wraps around my waist and pulls me close. The scent is wrong, all wrong, but there’s nothing I can do. He holds me upright and I know if he hadn’t held me I would have fallen. There’s nothing I can do as those already dark eyes somehow darken more. I’m ushered forward as someone announces our arrival. Luckily I don’t have to go that far, our seats are near the door. A hand on my chin pulls and I’m forced to drag my eyes from him and back up to Alpha. Another hand comes up and presses against my forehead.
