“Why do I keep having these mood swings? One moment I want to kill you, the next I want to kiss you.”
“It’s because you’re a newborn vampire. All of your emotions are heightened. Plus our sort of blood bond between creator and progeny makes it hard for you to not be attracted to me.”
“Oh. That makes sense.”
“We should go find Joe then to start your training.”
“Seems like a plan. What will you do whilst I am training?”
“I need to make some phone calls.”
We both walked out and a couple of the guards looked at me with shock that I was still alive.
“Is there something on your minds you would like to say?” Damon asked the guards, annoyance evident in his tone.
“No sir.” They chorused.
“Good. Now do your job and stop giving those looks to my pet.”
All of a sudden, my body lurched forward and I began puking up blood. What was happening? Splatter after splatter of blood came out of my mouth and it seemed like it would never end.
“Let it all out.” Damon whispered in my ear as he rubbed slow circle on my back. “It’s alright beautiful.”
“What…Is…Happening?” I said between pukes.
“You’re finishing the transformation. Your body is rejecting all of your human blood that is still in your body, which is why you’re puking all this blood up. It makes room for you new blood.”
“It will. Just let it all out.”
After a couple more minutes, I had stopped puking and was begin to feel a lot better, stronger even. That’s when the excruciating pain occurred, causing me to let out an ear ripping scream. What the fuck was happening now?
“Calm down and try to breathe.”
“CALM DOWN?!” I screamed out in pain. “WHAT THE HELL IS EVEN HAPPENING NOW?!”
“You’re just teething.”
“I’M NOT A FUCKING BABY!” I screamed out as my gums starting to feel like they were being torn apart.
“No I meant teething as in your fangs are coming through.”
“Great.” I sighed as the pain eased slightly.
I must be getting used to it.
Two sharp points pierced through my gums causing me to scream again. Why does it have to hurt so much? And just like that, the pain stopped as if nothing had happened. I reached my hand up to my mouth and felt my fangs. They were smoother than I thought they would be.
“Someone get Samantha to come and clean up this mess.” Damon ordered whilst staring at me in awe. “Don’t get into any trouble whilst I’m gone pet.”
When he walked off, I looked around. Where was Joe.
“Britney.” I heard a familiar face say. “Your fangs are through I see.”
“You look as beautiful as ever.” Joe smiled engulfing me in a hug.
“Thank you for the speech.”
“What?” He asked confused.
“At my funeral before I realised it was a funeral. For some reason, I could hear everything that was happening but couldn’t move.”
“I forgot about that from when I turned.”
“Was it easy for you?”
“You have already gone through the painful part. Now it’s just the training that is hard.”
“Thank God.” I sighed in relief. “I don’t think I can take much more pain.”
“Yeah you would think being a vampire numbs the pain but it doesn’t.”
“I know.” I agreed before realizing what Damon said earlier. “So Master said you would train me. If you don’t want to then that’s fine.”
“Would you care to follow me?” Joe asked beginning to walk off.
“Where are we going?” I asked, following behind him.
“Outside. You need to learn to control your movements, strength and emotions. You will be able to run faster, see better, hear better and have heightened emotions that all need to be controlled.”
“Okay. What will we work on first?”
“Emotions is the biggest and hardest and it would be better for Damon to help you with that one as he makes you feel the most emotions.”
“Now we will start off with something simple. Your hearing. I will go off and I want you to try to focus on my hearing.” Joe explained before dashing off.
“OKAY I’M GOING TO WHISPER SOMETHING AND I WANT YOU TO TELL ME WHAT I SAID.”
I tried to listen as hard as I could but all I could hear was the sound of the odd car or bird. Where was Joe’s voice?
“SAY SOMETHING THEN!”
“I AM! YOU NEED TO FOCUS HARD! FORGET ABOUT YOUR SURROUNDINGS! JUST FOCUS ON MY VOICE!”
I took in what I said and focused in on where his shouting voice had come from. The more I cleared my head and focused on that one direction, the further my hearing went.
“Focus on the sound of my voice.” I heard a soft whisper say.
“I THINK I HEAR YOU!” I shouted.
“I would love to tap Britneys’s ass. I would love to tap Britney ass.” I heard him whisper continuously.
“LEAVE MY ASS OUT OF THIS!” I shouted getting annoyed.
“Let’s move on. Try to tell me what I am doing.”
“How do I do that?”
“Just like I said before, focus. That is all most of this is about, concentration, patience and focus. It’s usually hard for a newborn vampire as your emotions are all over the place but you’re doing very well.”
“Thanks. Now do something and I will try to focus again.”
I cleared my head and focused on the direction he was in. It seemed as though the scenery before me was zooming in and I had to stop and clutch my head. Ouch that hurt. I didn’t like that.
“Is everything okay?” Joe asking, appearing in front of me.
“It hurt me head.”
“Yeah, you will get used to that. But you are doing a good job so far.” He smiled.
“Only speaking the truth baby doll.”
“It’s your nickname.”
“A few seconds ago.” He grinned, getting me in a headlock.
“Ew your armpits smell, Mr Sweaty.” I chuckled trying to get free.
“Meanie.” He pouted letting me go.
“You love it.” I laughed, ruffling his hair.
“Don’t you just know it.” He laughed.
“Hello.” I answered my phone.
“Damon. It’s Colt.”
“The old Beta and new Alpha to the neighboring territory.”
“What do you want?”
“Well our Alpha is dead.”
“Did you do it?”
I was going to admit to it but if I did, there would be an attack on this place and Amelia is vulnerable right now. Who could I pass the blame onto?
“No, but I know who did.”
“And why would your father do it?”
“Because of my pet.”
“What does this have to do with a human?”
“She was your former Alpha’s mate.”
“Ask her yourself. He called her mate and my father found out. He wants to hurt me by hurting my pet. He killed her soul mate, your former Alpha to get to me.”
“Why go for a human though? You don’t care about them.”
“That was until I met my now progeny.”
“You turned a human?”
“Yes. Is that so hard to believe?” I growled.
Yes I have never turned a human before but jeez. I’m not that bad. Okay…Maybe I am.
“Where’s your father?”
“At home and protected. But trust me, if anyone wants him dead, it’s me.”
I am glad the new Alpha is now believing me. I guess finding out I turned Britney made them believe me.
“Okay. Can I speak to your progeny?”
“I just want to speak to her.”
I went off outside to wear they were training and saw them messing around.
“I thought you were supposed to be training her?” I snarled at Joe.
I was acting as if I was angry but I wasn’t, I was jealous, and that is something I have not felt in over three centuries.
“Sorry sir.” Joe apologized.
“It was my fault.” Britney added.
Of course she would take the blame. She would happily defend those she cares about.
“Well pet, there is someone on the phone for you.”
“Okay…” She said slowly. “Hello.”
“Are you really Damon’s progeny?” I heard the Alpha ask.
“Yes.” She replied looking at me with confusion.
“What’s your name?”
“Pretty name. So when did you meet Ryan?”
“So you don’t know who my best friend and old Alpha was?”
“Are you talking about the tall, dark haired, slight stubble and chocolate, brown eyed man I met in this club this one time?”
“So you have met Ryan?”
“Ryan…I am glad I know his name.” She smiled.
Jealousy and anger started to boil up inside me with how she had described him. She couldn’t just have said brown eyes could she? Although I guess the whole werewolf mate bond doesn’t help.
“So how did he die?”
“David.” She replied.
Wow, she didn’t even hesitate. I guess she really does want him dead.
“David Gray, Damon’s father. He hates Damon and hates humans so he felt no remorse in trying to do things to hurt me.”
“I’m sorry to hear he is trying to hurt you.”
“I’m sorry about Ryan. I wished I had gotten to know him. He called me his mate. Can werewolves even have human mates?”
“Yes, only happens now and again.”
“What was he like?”
“Umm…He was good.”
He was making an excuse. I knew what the Alpha was like; cocky, arrogant, extremely vain and obsessive. At least he was sugar coating things for her.
“What will happen to your pack now?”
“Well I will take over as he has no heirs but he will never be forgotten.”
“How it should be.”
“I just want to let you know that you can trust me. You are basically our Luna, vampire or not, so if you need help, just give a call.”
“That is very kind of you.”
“You seem like a lovely girl. I’m sure you would have made a perfect Luna.”
“Thank you.” She smiled.
Although it looked like she was on the verge of breaking down into tears. Maybe I should have a word with her and ask her what’s wrong?
“We need to talk after.” Damon informed me and I nodded.
“I should go.” I told the Alpha.
“I understand. I did mean what I said, if you need anything, anything at all, I’m just a phone call away.”
“Thank you. I will ensure your treaty plan with Damon gets signed.”
Damon glared at me as if to say, ‘Ha! Never in a million years.’
“I think it will be a long time until that happens.”
“I have my ways. Plus I am sure he has a weak spot for me.”
“I think you’re right.” He chuckled. “Well I hope to meet you in person one day.”
“Good bye Britney.”
I ended the call and handed the phone back to Damon. He motioned for me to follow him which I decided to obey as he didn’t look particularly happy. We ended up in his room where he locked the door behind him. What was going on? I turned to face him only to have his lips crash down onto mine. I fell into the kiss and he wrapped his arms around my waist protectively. He pulled his lips off of mine and buried his face into my neck.
“Mine.” He grumbled into my neck.
“Why are you saying that?”
“Because you’re mine.”
“I know that. I just wondered why as usually you say it when someone makes a move towards me.”
“I just didn’t like your conversation with that mutt that’s all.”
“That mutt is a friend of my mate!” I spat back.
“You didn’t even know him. You never even felt the bond.”
“So? He was still made for me!”
“You don’t have a say unless you know them.”
This brought me back to what the Alpha said on the phone. I asked him what my mate was like and he hesitated before answering that he was good.
“What was my mate really like?”
“Why bother asking? The Alpha already answered that.”
“That was bullshit and you know it. Now tell me, what was he really like?”
“You don’t need to know.”
“Yes I do. I am emotional and wished he was still alive and was with him. I deserve to know what I missed out on.”
“I get it so stop saying it and answer the goddamn question.”
“Fine. He was extremely vain, cocky, arrogant, obsessive and had a short temper.”
Hmmm well that seems familiar doesn’t it? I thought to myself.
“Would he ever hit anyone?”
“People who deserved it?”
“And other times?”
“That is all I will say.”
“Did he hurt anyone close to him?
“I shouldn’t tell you this.”
“Because he is your soul mate and you are getting upset about not knowing him. I don’t want to upset you further. You should only hear good things about him so just forget what I said.”
“Well I would rather hear the truth then have people lie to me. If you cared about me, you would tell me.”
“Don’t you dare try to manipulate me pet.” He spat.
“Sorry.” I mumbled. “I didn’t mean to, it slipped out.”
“I would say it’s okay but it’s not. I forgive you but don’t do it again. I don’t want you to change.”
“I’m trying as hard as I can.”
“I know. All I will say to you about your mate is that his mother made him angry once and it didn’t turn out well.”
“Is his mother nice?”
“Was? Is she cruel now?”
“No. How do humans put it nicely? Ah yes, his mother is in a better place now.”
“He killed his mother yet she was nice and most likely didn’t deserve to die!”
“Look don’t take it to heart…”
“Don’t take it to heart? Are you serious?”
“He’s your soul mate and a part of you cares for him even if you didn’t know him.”
“Would he have killed me?”
“Britney.” He sighed.
“Would he have killed me Damon?”
“There is a chance…”
“Oh God! I mourned him. I felt bad for what happened to him but he deserved it! He kills innocent people who don’t deserve to die.”
“Please can you stop talking about it as it makes me think of how my father has nearly killed my mother numerous times.”
“Sorry. I do have a quick question.”
“What is the deal with you and David?”
“I don’t want to talk about it.”
“Okay. Well if you want to talk, I’m here to listen.” I smiled, planting a small kiss on his cheek.
I walked over to his bed and lay down on it. He came over and lay next to me.
“I have another quick question.”
“What now?” He sighed.
“Can I go on vacation for a couple of days? Away from here and you?”
“Why?” He asked, panic rising in his voice.
“I don’t want to leave you Damon…” I started causing him to sigh in relief. “…I just want to see my friends again at school and it would be a bit weird taking you were there, especially if we go on to talk about girly things.” I lied.
Okay, I wasn’t leaving him but I did want to go back to my home town. I didn’t have friends but I want to pay the pet shop that took me a visit and also drop in to see good old mom and dad. If I told Damon, he would try to stop me.
“Girly things? Like what? Guys?”
What do I reply with? How do I keep him from wanting to come along with me?
“Yes probably guys, crushes, tampons and…”
“What? Girls talk about them. They’re a natural thing that girls talk about like which brand they use, do they use tampons or sanitary towels, do they…”
“Oh I get it! Please stop talking about things linked with menstrual cycles.”
“Sorry.” I chuckled.
“It’s okay, just don’t speak about that round me again.” He chuckled.
“And yes, you can go. You don’t have to ask my permission.”
“I feel like I do. I would think that if I didn’t and just tried to leave, you would stop me and then you would punish me for trying to leave.”
“I would never lay a hand on you in the wrong way ever again, I promise.”
I felt bad. I shouldn’t be lying to him. I should just tell him what I really am planning to do on my ‘vacation.’
“I love you Damon.” I blurt out before covering my mouth in shock.
I shouldn’t have said that because when he finds out what I have planned, he will hate me, but I couldn’t help myself. I do. I love him.
“I love you too.” He smiled, pulling me into his side.
I closed my eyes, letting out a huge sigh as things seemed normal.
“Try and get some rest.” He softly said before kissing the top of my head.
“Good night Damon.”
“Good night beautiful.”
