Well, I hope this chapter can answer any questions you’ve been having.
Tell me what you think, and I hope you enjoy!
Bella stared on at Jeremy as he lay on her bed, her entire being was praying he was going to make it. She could tell that her dragons were wishing for the same from what she could feel from them. Bella pushed the hair out Jeremy’s face, she hated not being able to see his eyes. To not be able to see the life in them, she shook her head, he didn’t deserve this. Bella leaned down and kissed his forehead before she stood up and backed away from the bed. She looked to her father who had taken a spot in the corner of the room. A book was on his lap as he kept an eye on the boy and on his daughter.
“He’s going to make it.” Bella said as she walked towards her father.
Klaus looked up at her and raised an eyebrow in question. “Do you really believe that?” He questioned curiously.
Bella nodded, she looked back towards Jeremy, “I have to believe it, it’s all I have left.” She moved and sat down on the floor resting her head on her dad’s knee. “When I was in my coma you chose to believe that I would come back, you could have put me in a coffin and buried me, but you didn’t. You believed I was going to make it, even when everything suggested otherwise. I have to do the same for him. The thought of him not coming back, it makes me sick. I have to believe that he’s going to be okay, because without him I know I won’t make it.”
Klaus nodded, “Have you slept at all?”
Bella shook her head, “I was up all night watching over him. I wanted to see if there was going to be any sign that he would be okay. I’ll probably take a nap later, but I won’t be leaving this room anytime soon.”
“According to Maddox, his sister and her friends are looking for him.” Klaus mentioned. “They’re going all over town looking for him. Apparently the Sheriff shared with them what she saw and they’re looking for you.”
Bella rolled her eyes, “Let them look all they want. They won’t find me, and if by some chance they do I won’t let them take Jeremy away. He needs to be here and I need to be with him.”
“And what about Damon?” Klaus questioned curiously. “Have you figured out why he went crazy?”
Bella nodded, “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I figured out what must’ve happened to him. I think one of my dragons bit him during the ritual. The venom is currently killing him slowly and it’s driving him insane. He shouldn’t be a problem though, he’ll be in too much pain right now to really do any damage.”
“You’re going to let him die? I would’ve thought you would want some sort of revenge.” Klaus replied he shut his book to put his full attention on Bella. “It really looked like you wanted him and the Sheriff dead.”
Bella smiled, “I do want revenge, but I have a good few days before the venom kills him, I’ll go save him soon and then when I do I’ll bite him again. I’ll let him drown in pain, and when Jeremy wakes up, I’ll let him choose on whether or not the vampire gets to live or not. It was Jeremy’s life that was put on the line, so it’ll be Jeremy to decide.”
“And the sheriff?” Klaus questioned curiously. “What do you plan to do with her?”
“Rip her head off and play baseball with it.” Bella replied with a glare at the thought of the person who had killed Jeremy. “I’ll let her be, she’s human and I’m not going to torture a human. No matter how much of an idiot she was.”
Time passed and Bella watched her father leave the room as he need some blood. She moved and got on the bed beside Jeremy. She had brought him to her room for the sole reason that she needed him to be close and protected and this was the best place for that. Tears formed in her eyes as she looked at his motionless body, nothing had ever hurt as much as seeing him this way. She now understand that she could never truly live without him, and if he were to die, she would die too.
Bella took a washcloth and cleaned off some off Jeremy’s face. She ran her fingers down his cheek and sighed. “I hate this.” She whispered as set the washcloth to the side. She took in a deep breath as her chest felt constricted. She had stopped herself from crying anymore, that was the last thing she felt like doing.
“My dragons like you.” Bella said to Jeremy feeling the need to speak to him, it made her feel like he was still there with her. “They’d feel it if you died. I think they can already feel you as my mate. They already know you’re one of us.”
Bella sighed out as she pushed back the hair on Jeremy’s face as it always seemed to cover his eyes. “Maybe when you wake up I can convince you to cut your hair.” Bella smiled at the thought. She leaned down and kissed his forehead. She stood up and sat on the chair she had moved to sit at the side of the bed.
She leaned back as she really needed to sleep, but every time she tried she would only wake up instantly in a panic. The memory of seeing Jeremy shot, of seeing as the life left his eyes haunted her constantly. Even as a dragon she didn’t need to sleep much, but she was still pushing it as it was.
Bella rubbed her eyes as she curled up into a ball on the chair. She yawned as her body was commanding sleep, but she knew nothing good would come from it. All she felt after her short minutes of sleep was pain and fear rather than feeling any better.
Bella closed her eyes as she tried to fight the overwhelming need to sleep. Just as she was close to sleep, she heard the knock on her door and stood up. She wiped her eyes before she answered and smiled as it was Trevor. “Hey, Trev.”
“Hey.” Trevor replied giving a small smile. “I just wanted to tell you that some of us are going to be going into town. We don’t have groceries and we thought we’d go see what we could get.”
Bella nodded, “If you can, try and see what the town is saying about Jeremy’s disappearance.”
Trevor nodded, “I’ll see what I can dig up. Is there anything else you’re going to need?”
Bella shook her head. “No thank you, Trevor. I’ll be fine.”
Trevor nodded, “We’re all hoping he makes it. Everyone really liked him when they met him.”
Bella smiled sadly. “He’s going to make it, we just have to wait. Be careful when you go into town I don’t want any of you caught up in any sort of trouble. I’m sure the Sheriff is eager to get one of us locked up for Damon’s madness. I wouldn’t put it past them to try and blame one of us for the murders in town.”
Trevor nodded, “We’ll be back soon.”
Bella was filled with anger as Trevor had told her the day before that the Sheriff along with the Mystic Falls gang was trying to pin all the murders on the arriving of a gang in town. A gang they had told everyone Trevor was the leader of and all her dragons were a part of. They were trying to convince the Mayor to believe they were a hazard to the town in an attempt to run them out of town.
She had told everyone to no longer head into town until she had everything dealt with. She looked over to Jeremy and shook her head. She didn’t want to leave him, but she had to do something. The last thing she wanted was for this one town to ruin everything she had worked for.
There was a loud knock on the door and Bella rushed over to open it. Trevor stood there beside her father. “Just came to tell you that your father is here.”
Bella nodded she looked back to Jeremy and sighed. “I need you to stay in here and watch over him for me. My dad and I will be stepping out for a moment.”
Trevor nodded his head, “Yeah, I can do that. Everyone is downstairs watching a movie so we’ll all be okay.”
Bella nodded she smiled at Trevor, “Thank you.” She said as she looked back to Jeremy and her chest tightened at the thought of leaving him for even a few minutes, but it was something she needed to do. As much as she loved him, she couldn’t let her dragons be in any sort of danger.
Bella took her father’s hand and led him downstairs and out of the house. She got into the passenger seat of his car and turned to her father as he got in after her. “Can you take me to the Mayor’s house?”
Klaus looked at her curiously. “Is there a reason behind your visit to the Mayor?”
Bella smiled, “I just want to make a few things clear to her.”
Klaus smirked at the look on his daughter’s face. It was one he wore often, but he knew very well she was only doing this to hide the pain she was feeling. “And what am I going along for?”
“I don’t want to kill her, but my emotions are everywhere right now. I know you’d be the only one who could stop me from killing her.” Bella replied honestly. She looked out the window as she let her dad drive. Her mind instantly drifted off to Jeremy, as it seemed he was the only thing that could preoccupy her mind anymore.
Arriving at the Lockwood Mansion Bella got out of the car quickly. A smirk made its way to her face as she saw the Sheriff’s car in the driveway. “I guess I get to kill two birds with one stone.”
As they approached the front door Bella could hear the voices coming from inside, she paused and listened in on the conversation.
“You don’t understand, Carol! These things are dangerous. No one knows what they are and they’re just running wild in town. They took Jeremy for God’s sake!” Liz Forbes yelled as she was trying to make the Mayor see reason.
“You have no proof!” Carol replied back with a glare. “What you’re describing is some sort of monster that just doesn’t exist! You need to get your head out of your ass and do your job! People are beginning to ask questions, Liz. They want to know why four people died and they want to know who did it. I need something to tell this town, and I need it now.”
“I told you to blame it on that gang!” Liz replied returning the Mayor’s glare.
Carol rolled her eyes, “I’m not going to blame it on a bunch of newcomers! I want something people will believe.”
“Those newcomers are monsters and we need to figure out a way to get them out of town!” Liz replied heatedly. Both women turned their heads as there was a loud knock on the door.
Carol ran her hands down her dress straightening it out as she stood to answer the door. She was taken aback when she saw who was on her doorstep. “Hello…”
Bella smiled, “Mrs. Lockwood, I need to speak to you and the Sheriff, it’s a matter of great importance.”
“I can’t we have to lea…” Carol said only to be cut off by Bella.
“We both know you don’t have to go anywhere.” Bella said she let her fangs appear and smiled widely at the Sheriff. “I don’t need an invitation to come in, so don’t think you’re safe inside your home. Invite my father in, so we can talk without this getting out of hand.”
Carol gulped back and forced a smile on her face. “Of course, come in.” She moved to the side and let them both in. She shut the door behind her and looked to her two guests.
“YOU!” Liz said, she took out her gun and pointed it at Bella. “Where’s Jeremy?”
Bella stepped forward and let her dragon form take over, she saw the way the Sheriff’s gun trembled in her hands as she looked at Bella. “Jeremy is at my home, were I’m hoping he comes back from that fatal bullet wound you gave him.” Bella used her tail and knocked the gun out of the Sheriff’s hands. She reached forward grabbing the Sheriff by the throat. She slammed her up against a wall and growled.
“I don’t want to kill you, Sheriff, but I will if I have to.” Bella said, she let the Sheriff go and went back to her original form. She looked back to the Mayor. “I came to make a peace offering of sorts. We both know it wasn’t my kind that killed all those peoples at the festival, it was a vampire. My family likes this town, and we want to call it our home for a bit of time. We don’t kill humans, so you have nothing to worry about with us.”
Bella stepped closer to the Mayor. “What I’m offering is a treaty of sorts. My family, my species, won’t cause any trouble, just as long as your people don’t start anything with us. I heard that the Sheriff over here was trying to make my brother Trevor seem like a bad kid. It seems she was trying to blame all those murders on him and his imaginary gang, which is supposed to contain other family members of mine. I don’t take to this kindly, I’m the leader and when someone in my family is being targeted, I have to retaliate.”
Bella looked the Mayor directly in the eyes. “If your sheriff, or else anyone in this town gives one of my family members a rough time, I will have to act. I don’t usually kill humans, but I will if they try hurting my family. I’m a very strong and powerful being, Mayor, you don’t want to get on my bad side.”
Bella stepped back and smiled charmingly at the Mayor. “What do you think, Mayor?”
Carol gulped and looked at Bella in the eyes something that was proving to be difficult as she wanted to advert her gaze from the girl. “I think we have a deal. I’ll make sure no one of your kinds gets blamed for the murders or anything else to come.”
Bella nodded with a smile. “Good, and if one of my own breaks a law or does something violent, you come to me first. I’ll punish them accordingly, but if you or anyone else hurts anyone rest assured my vengeance will be bloody and I’ll make a spectacle of it.”
Carol nodded she felt her mouth go dry as she looked at the look on Bella’s face. “Of course, I’ll make sure no trouble comes your way. I’ll deal with my people.”
Bella smiled, “That’s a pleasure to hear, and make sure the Sheriff over here is clear on the terms. She’s caused enough trouble as it is, I’d hate to leave this town without a Sheriff if she does something again.”
Carol nodded and glared at Liz, “I’ll make it clear.”
“My father and I will be leaving now, it was pleasure to be here today.” Bella said smiling as she followed her father out. She paused at the door. “You have a lovely home, Mayor, I would hate for something to happen to it.” Bella closed the door and walked beside her father back to the car.
“I’m a bit disappointed.” Klaus said as they walked.
Bella turned to him curiously. “Over what?”
“I was hoping I got to snap the Sheriff’s neck. I thought she might shot you, and that would give me the perfect reason to kill her, but I guess she was smarter than we both thought.” Klaus said.
Bella smiled, “Let’s go home. I don’t like being away from him too long.”
Klaus nodded, “He’s going to be okay and in a few days he’ll wake up and you’ll go back to having hearts in your eyes every time you look at him.”
Bella rolled her eyes, but thanked her father for coming with her. She looked back out the window as they drove back, the closer she got to the house and to Jeremy the less her chest and her heart hurt.
Bella rubbed her eyes as she had fallen asleep for more than a few minutes, and had just woken up. A part of her regretted waking up as her dreams contained thoughts of Jeremy. It had all been memories of the two of them that had taken place in her mind. It was more refreshing then the nightmares that had been plaguing her thoughts.
She looked to Jeremy and sighed as he looked exactly the same as when she had fallen asleep. She stood from the chair she had slept on and stretched her muscles sighing in relief as they became more comfortable with every move she made. She walked around the room stretching her legs. She had wanted to deal with Damon today, but she had been away from Jeremy yesterday and she didn’t want to leave him today as well.
She sat on the bed and felt her eyes water as she looked at him. “I miss you.” She whispered to him. She brought her knees to her chest and let the tears fall not being able to hold them in any longer. She wiped her eyes as there was a knock on the door.
“Come in, Dad.” Bella said as she stood turning away from the door as she wiped her cheeks to clear all signs of crying.
Klaus sighed and closed the door behind him as he entered the room. He walked over to his daughter and put his arms around her. “Crying is not a weakness, Isabella. It’s a sign of strength, only the strong have the courage to show their emotions.”
Bella closed her eyes, “I don’t know what will happen if he doesn’t make it.”
“He’s going to make it, he’s your mate after all.” Klaus responded, “He has to be as stubborn as you are.”
Bella smiled, “You’re probably right.”
“Of course I’m right, I’m always right.” Klaus replied he smiled at his daughter. “Take a seat, tell me exactly how you met.”
Bella raised her eyebrows in question. “Really?”
Klaus nodded, “You need to take your mind off of this, and thinking of him in a positive way will help you more than you think.”
“Okay,” Bella said, she smiled, “It was right after Trevor and I took the first boxes into the house.”
Bella headed down the stairs, she had left Jeremy under the watchful eye of her father. She would’ve left him with Trevor, but she was going to need Trevor for what was about to come. She needed to clear her head and the only thing that got her mind off of Jeremy was Damon. She wanted more than anything to see him suffer, to see him pay for what he had done.
Bella looked to all the dragons that were gathered together in the living room. “I’m going to take care of a little problem. I need a few of you to come with me. The rest of you, I’m asking to stay here and be on your guard. I don’t want anyone we don’t know come into this house. Anyone who seems like a threat I don’t want them to get anywhere near Jeremy.”
Bella walked out of the house with Sean, Alexander and Trevor behind her. She let her wings spread wide and she looked to the three behind her. “I don’t want any of you to lay a hand on Damon, not until I say so. If anyone gets in my way to him, I want you to stop them.”
“Are we to kill them?” Alexander questioned curiously.
Bella shrugged, “Not if they’re human. If they’re otherwise I don’t care.” Bella flew up into the air and was followed by her dragons. She led everyone to the Salvatore house where she landed with the three of them behind her. She went back to her human form and walked up to the house. She didn’t bother knocking instead she kicked the door in.
She tilted her head to the side as she instantly saw, Stefan, Caroline, and Elena standing in front of her. She smirked at them. “If you would be so kind as to tell me where Damon is.”
Elena was first to move, she moved forward ready to hit Bella in anger. She winced in pain as Bella’s hand wrapped around her wrist as it was close to her face. “I want Jeremy back!”
Bella let go of Elena’s hand and pushed the girl back. “No.” She replied simply. Bella was making her way towards the stairs she paused as she could hear Elena coming at her again. She knew her dragons had moved to hold back Stefan and Caroline. Bella grabbed Elena’s wrist again and this time she forced the girl up against the wall. She turned to Trevor and nodded towards the stairs silently ordering him to go check on Damon. She didn’t want him to have any chance of escaping. “Don’t try to attack me, Elena. I’m not a vampire, I don’t have weaknesses. You think you can hit me and get away with it? If you lay one hand on me I’ll break your hand in retaliation. I can’t kill you, because you mean something to Jeremy, but there are boundaries and if I were you I would make sure not cross them. I’m doing what I have to in order to save Jeremy.”
Elena glared at Bella. “You pathetic, worthless piece of scum, you mean nothing to my brother. You’re just another girl, whom he’ll get over in a day. You’ll never be good enough for Jeremy, not like Bonnie is.”
Bella glared at the girl in front of her, “It seems your brother thinks differently.” Bella looked around, “Who are you to judge me when you’re currently playing around with two brothers? Is that what is making you so angry? The fact that one of your boy toys is going to die, at the hands of one of my boys no less.”
Elena grew angry, she couldn’t really hit Bella since her hands were being held back, so she did the only thing she could think of. She spit on Bella’s face and smirked when Bella released her. Elena backed up and gulped as she saw the look on Bella’s eyes.
Bella growled out loudly and took on her dragon form, she bared her teeth at Elena. “That was very stupid.” Bella stepped closer and forced Elena up against the wall. “For such disrespect I should take your head.”
Elena trembled strongly as the look on Bella’s face let her know she had done the wrong thing and glancing over at Stefan and Caroline who were being held by their throats to the wall she knew no one would be coming to her rescue this time. “I’m-sor”She began but flinched back when Bella growled.
“DID I SAY YOU COULD TALK?” Bella growled, she reached down and used Elena’s shirt to clean her face. She laughed as she saw Elena’s face. “I’ve warned you already, Elena. I can’t kill you, but I will let someone else die in your place. I’ll let that guilt live in your head for the rest of your life. I came here to save Damon from the last slowly painful days of his life, but now I don’t think I will. I think I’m going to let him rot in his room, and it’ll be all because of you. You let him die, Elena. He could’ve been rescued, but now he has to suffer because you did something stupid. I hope you can live with the guilt of having let Damon die.”
Bella stepped back as she saw the look on Elena’s face, she watched as the girl slide down the wall in shock as everything settled inside her mind. Bella turned to Trevor who came down the stairs, “How is Damon?” She questioned loud enough that Elena would be able to hear.
“He was definitely bitten by one of us. He shouldn’t last more than a few more days. His body is beginning to slowly give up on him.” Trevor replied, he moved quickly and stood behind Bella.
Bella smiled at Elena. “What a shame, isn’t it Elena?” She turned to Sean and Alexander. “Snap their necks and let’s go. I think our work here is done.”
Bella smiled as her dragons stood behind her she looked one last time to Elena. “I told you before, Elena. Show me some respect, you have no idea what I’m capable of. Be grateful that you’re related to Jeremy, if it were otherwise I would’ve had your head by now.”
With her final words Bella led her boys out of the house and into the air. This hadn’t been what she came for, but it seemed things had to change under the circumstances.
Bella sighed as she looked at Jeremy’s body, it was still so lifeless. She turned to the corner of the room where her father stood. “He should be waking up by now.” She stated as she did her best to hold back the tears that threatened to fall.
Klaus nodded, “I know, but you should always have faith. He might just be slow.”
Bella nodded her head, she brushed her fingers through his hair. “I don’t know what I’d do if he doesn’t make it. I need him to make it, dad. I can’t live without him.”
Klaus nodded, he was about to speak when he heard a lot of screaming going on outside.
Bella growled in annoyance. She stepped closer to her window to see what was happening outside. She growled louder as she saw the Sheriff accompanied by Bonnie, Caroline, and Stefan. Bella looked to her father for a moment before letting out a loud growl that rumbled through the entire house. She opened the window in her room and jumped out. She landed standing in front of her dragons and face the trespassers. She watched as all her dragons stopped arguing with the trespassers the moment her feet hit the ground. They came together behind her staring down the intruders.
“What are you doing at my home?” Bella questioned as she stared down the four in front of her.
“We’re here to bring Jeremy home.” Liz replied her hand resting on her gun. “We’ll use force if we have to.”
Bella laughed, “Is this what you brought as backup? The weakest vampires in town, and an amateur witch? Is this the army that is supposed to fight on your side?” Bella stepped closer to the Sheriff, “I’m not in the best of moods right now. I suggest you tread very carefully here, it might be best for you to get back in your car and get the hell off my property.”
Liz pulled out her gun and aimed it at Bella. “I’m going to count to three, if you don’t bring Jeremy’s body out I’ll be forced to take action.”
Bella’s eyes hardened, “I thought I made it clear when I spoke to the Mayor. Are you sure this is the path you want to take Sheriff? I meant what I said, if someone gets hurt I’ll be forced to retaliate.”
Liz cocked her gun and aimed straight for Bella’s heart. “I came for justice.”
Bella scoffed, “Justice? I wasn’t the one who shot Jeremy in the heart! I WASN’T THE ONE WHO KILLED HIM!” Bella looked to the three behind Liz and realization hit her. “You didn’t tell them the truth did you? You didn’t tell them that YOU were the one to kill Jeremy. YOU were the reason I had to take Jeremy and run.”
“SHUT UP!” Liz yelled as her hand trembled as she held onto the gun.
“Tell them how your first instinct when you saw Damon was to shot him. Tell them how you didn’t think first before pressing the trigger. TELL THEM THAT YOU SHOT JEREMY, ALL BECAUSE YOU WANTED TO GET YOUR ANGER TOWARDS DAMON OUT!” Bella stepped forward standing a few feet away from the Sherriff. “Tell them the truth, Sheriff!”
Liz pressed the trigger and shot Bella everyone gasped out as Bella’s wings appeared blocking the bullet from hitting her. Bella removed the bullet that had lodged itself in her wings. She took it and with all the force she had she threw it back at the Sheriff. She watched as it pierced the Sheriff’s hand knocking the gun out of her hand and creating a hole where it entered and exited. Without having to say a word Bella watched as some of her dragons stepped forward and grabbed Stefan, Caroline and Bonnie holding them back as she made her way towards the Sheriff who had fallen down to the ground in agony.
Bella kneeled down and forced the Sheriff to look at her. “I told you not to get involved with me. Frankly, I want nothing more than to take your head and rip it off your neck and use it as a sign of what I’m capable of, but I’m not in the mood for revenge today. Well, that’s a lie. I am in a mood for revenge, just not for killing.” Bella reached down and broke the Sheriff’s hand with one swift movement. Bella waited until the Sheriff was done screaming in pain to speak again.
“I really hate to do this Sheriff, but you made me do it.” Bella said she broke the Sheriff’s leg. “I told you not to come into my business. I’m trying to fix what you messed up, I’m trying to bring him back, but you don’t seem to understand that. I don’t understand what else I can do to make it clear. I guess I’ll just have to say this, the next time any of you come trespassing into my property without permission, I’ll have to kill you. Well, not you, you’re human and that would be cruel, but your daughter, her friends all of them will be gone and it’ll be your fault. I really hope you’ll listen this time as this is the last warning I’m giving any of you. Next time someone is going to die, and I promise it’ll be painful.”
Bella stood back up and carried the Sheriff to the car, she placed her in the backseat being sure to ‘accidently’ twist her broken hand. Bella looked to the other three that remained. “I’ll give you 15 seconds to get in this car and get the hell off my property. I’m done playing around, yesterday should’ve been enough for you all to understand. Come near my family again, and I’ll kill you in the blink of an eye. Or, I’ll just let one of them bite you, than you’ll suffer the same fate as Damon.” Bella looked to Bonnie and glared heavily at the girl. “I ever see your face again on my property no amount of magic will be able to help you. Listen to the spirits, because I’m sure they’ll warn you to stay away from me and my family.”
Bella gestured for her dragons to let them go and watched as the three hurried in the car. She didn’t relax her stance until they were out of sight. She turned to her dragons and gave a small smile. “Well, at least there wasn’t any bloodshed.”
“What about Liz, you sent a bullet at her.” Trevor replied as with a smirk. “There was bloodshed there.”
Bella smiled, “That’s right, I shot the Sheriff.”
“But you didn’t shoot the deputy.” A voice said from behind everyone else.
Bella froze and watched as her dragons all stepped out of the way to reveal Jeremy standing there behind them. “Jeremy?” Bella questioned quietly.
Jeremy nodded, he opened his arms and smiled. “Don’t I get a hug, Isa?”
Bella smiled, she moved quickly and jumped into his arms. “You’re alive.” She said as she buried her head in his neck taking in his scent. She felt the tears escape her eyes as she held onto him tightly. “I missed you.” She whispered into his ear.
“I know.” Jeremy replied, “I could hear you. I missed you too, Isa.” Jeremy closed his eyes in relief as the last six days had been torture for him. He could hear her, but there was nothing he could do to ease her pain and that was the worst thing of all.
Neither of the pair noticed the dragons leave heading to Klaus’s home in an attempt to give the two space.
“I love you, Isa.” Jeremy said as he kissed the side of her head. “I was worried you wouldn’t turn me, I’m glad you did it.”
Bella hugged him tighter. “I couldn’t let you go.” She whispered she felt her tears fall on his shirt. “I love you too much to live without you.”
Jeremy held her tighter he closed his eyes again as he held her. It was finally settling in that he was now just like her, and that from this moment on his eternity was going to be spent with her. This being a fact that would scare most, but to him it was the most exciting thing he could imagine. Nothing sounded better than being with her for the rest of forever.
