    Nadia Jones

    Nadia sat in her parents lounge room her mind reeling at what she had just been told. She stared at the steaming coffee mug in front of her. The news that had just been dropped on her as a lot and she wasn't sure she could even comprehend what was actually happening.

    "Nadia darling, say something." her mother began her voice wavering, Nadia's eyes darted between her mother and her father, both of them had somber looks on their faces. Their eyes were glassy with unshed tears.

    "What..." she began but stopped, what was there to say? Her parents had promised her to another, and arranged marriage. Naturally she never would have thought her parents would have done something like this. "Who is it?" questions were pinging around her head like a ball in a pinball machine. why did they do it? What are they getting out of it?

    "His name is Elijah Devereux," her father intoned.

    Elijah Devereux, Nadia knew that name. How did she know that name? Then it his her like a brick wall.

    "No!" she shook her head rapidly. "No not him, tell me this is a joke... You have promised me to a vampire. Not just any vampire Elijah Devereux. He is a maniac, narcissistic, he had killed so many people!" she began her mother burst into sobs as Nadia's anxiety began to rise as she realised that she was to be married to one of the most notoriously known vampires for killing people simply because they looked at him wrong, or breathed on him. "I'm not doing it, you can't make me do it. I will not marry him."

    "I wish it were that simple Nadia." her father said wrapping his arms around his sobbing wife. "But it's not..." he went to say more but there was a knock at the door causing all three of them to spin their heads in the direction it came from.
    Ezra Van Doren
    Ezra stepped out of the plane, it was three hours before dawn. As he entered the terminal he saw a elder gentleman, finely dressed, pressed suit and polished shoes holding a sign with his last name printed across it.

    "Master Van Doren," the gentleman spoke, his voice crisp and clear. Ezra nodded his head smiling. The chauffeur nodded his head and told him to follow, the car wasn't far. the dark haired vampire followed the man in silence.

    There was a peacefulness to arriving at an airport at three am. There were no humans and very few vampires as it was a week night. Ezra entered the car and made himself comfortable it was going to be a drive to his destination.

    Ezra wasn't nervous he had met Thea before only this time it was different. This time the two were to wed and there was no changing the minds of both his and her parents. This was to be a binding of family lines to enforce an alliance should anything arise. A revolution, an over throw anything another coven of vampires could threaten with.

    Hope this was okay, you can go anywhere with Nadia's scene i left it pretty open, hope Ezra's was okay... can't wait :)

    Elijah Devereux
    How Elijah got himself into this situation still wasn’t that clear to him. He knew the reputation that he had, however he at least felt like he wasn’t always the cold heartless vampire that many believed him to be. And that is how he got himself into his mess. All he had tried to do was help a young couple in need, but he had been much more immature and plain old stupid when he came across this couple.

    Before his mind had time to think, his mouth was already doing to damage as he told the couple that he would take their daughter as his wife. At the time it had sounded just fine, until Elijah had the time to think through what it would be like for him to have a human wife. And it would be more of a bother for him, yet it was too late for him to take back the arrangement and even if he wanted to let the family stay together, he couldn’t. He was a Devereux, he couldn’t go back on his word.

    For the last month Elijah had been lurking in the shadows as he watched Nadia, he learned the routine that she had and what she liked to do in her free time. He wasn’t going to go into this blindly, he wanted to know more about this human girl before she as thrown into his life. Because if she was a rude brat then he would have thought up a plan on how to get himself out of the arrangement, unfortunately he hadn’t seen any of that behaviour in her.

    Which is why he was currently standing at the front door of the Jones’ house, lifting his fist to the wooden door three perfect heavy knocks sounded. Taking a step backward he waited for someone to answer the door for him, his icy blue eyes roamed across the front yard of the house as he waited somewhat impatiently. He had only ever been around humans when he wanted fresh warm blood to drink, an aggravated sigh passed through his lips as he realised he would need to get used to how slow humans moved. However, as the door was opened Elijah moved his eyes which fell upon a devasted male. “Hello Mr Jones,” Elijah greeted the now older male which a slight nod of his head, neither of them wanted him to be there but it was far too late for that now.

    Once he was invited into the home, Elijah stepped through the front door but waited. It wasn’t his place to continue further into the small home, his eyes darted from each corner of the room as he took in the homely feeling. A feeling that he wasn’t accustomed to, his parents house never gave of a feeling like the Jones’ home did. It must have been a human thing.
    Thea Dufort
    The scold on Thea’s face had been in place for the last day or so, as the hours ticked by the worse her mood became. Today was the day in which her future husband was arriving, it was a day that she had been dreading and now it was here and coming true. It had been a year since her parents had sat her down and explained the arranged marriage that had taken place between them and the Van Doren family. An arrangement that she had only been made aware of once the details had been put into place and the two families had agreed on, Thea had been furious with her parents at first because she couldn’t believe they would do something so old fashioned and disgraceful. Why couldn’t Thea find a man to love on her own? Her parents had found each other, they hadn’t been forced together by their families. Why were they putting their only child through something like this?

    The blonde vampire had even turned to begging her parents to call off the arrangement, however they didn’t seem to understand why their daughter was against the idea. As her father had told her, the sooner she had a partner then the safer she was going to be. As if she couldn’t take care of herself. She was a Dufort, she knew how to protect herself from a threat.

    Currently Thea was sitting on the lounge in her living room, her hand wrapped around a glass of warmed blood which she was sipping on. It had been six months ago when she took a flight to meet her future husband, the meeting was tense and rather awkward as neither of them were thrilled about what was to occur.

    From the first meeting, Thea had decided that if her parents wanted this arrangement to take place then they could convince the Van Duren family to send their son to her. She was not going to marry a man she didn’t love and move away from her home, that was never going to happen in her eyes. It was only two months ago that her parents advised her that Ezra would be moving in with her.

    Thea had a nice house that she called her own, it wasn’t as large or decadent as the family home, but Thea was happy with what she had built for herself. The spare bedroom had already been set up for when Ezra arrived, which would be shortly. The family chauffeur would have collected Ezra and would be making the drive to her, which would still take them about an hour or so as she did live more on the outskirts of the town. This would be the last hour of her life that she would be a single woman, because the second that car pulled up the long driveway, her life would change.

    Nadia Jones

    Nadia's heart was racing and her hands were sweating, her mother sat on the couch her sobs subsiding to sniffles. Nadia's father, Jacob, her left to answer the door, her mother was too wrapped up in her emotions. The brunette got to her feet quickly and silently snuck away. She crept up the stair case before entering her old room she ran over to the bedroom window praying that it still opened. It had been seven years since she had stayed in this room. Reaching out she gripped the lip and pulled it up. Success it opened, flicking her gaze behind her she could hear footsteps.

    "Nadia!" her father called. It took all her will power not to shout a reply. Instead she crept through the widow and out onto the rooftop. She couldn't move quick enough her heart was in her throat. Her father's voice was getting louder. She knew he was in her room. Quickly she ran the rest of the way before jumping onto the tall pine tree that grew at the furtherest end of the house. She made her way down, her foot slipping more than once but she gripped the branches so she didn't fall. Once her feet touched the ground she plucked her car keys from her pocket and looked up tears in her eyes. There was no way she was going without a fight.

    A hand clasped on her arm causing her to scream.

    "Let go of me!" she cried trying to wretch her arm from her fathers iron like grip. "Dad... please... you can't allow this!" she fought against his hold even taking it to the extreme of biting his hand. Even though her father was in his early fifties he still had the strength of a bull so it was no trouble for him to throw her over his shoulder. "I hate you! I fucking hate you!" Nadia screamed as she pounded her fathers back.

    "I'm sorry Dia... but this is how it has to be," his tone was full of emotion. She could hear her mother crying hysterically turning her head she saw her standing at the front door tears streaking down her face as she knelt on the ground.

    "MUMMY!" Trina watched as her daughter fought against the hold of her father. "Mum please!" she clawed at her mother as her father walked passed her back into the house but the woman stayed where she was knowing that there was nothing she could do for her daughter. Nadia was pulled from her fathers shoulder and placed on the ground where she crumbled allowing her emotion to overtake her.
    Ezra Van Doren
    Ezra sat in the car twirling with his daylight ring around as his mind whirred. The male wasn't happy about this arrangement but there was nothing he could do about it, his parents had made their minds up and it had been decided. He was to marry the well known heiress Thea Dufort before the month was up.

    The male had met her once and it had been one of the most awkward meetings, neither one of them were happy about what was going on around them. Yet none of them had a choice.

    Ezra had argued with his father for hours about how out dated arranged marriages were it was twenty-twenty. People and vampires alike were allowed to marry whoever they chose. Arranged marriages were a thing of the past. Ezra's parents argument was that there was no one better for their son, not some lower class whore. No they had to uphold their image and their stature and having their only son marry into one of the most well known and respected families was exactly how they were going to do it. Ezra fingered the velvet ring box, a gift from his mother, an heirloom ring that had been in their family for centuries passed down from woman to woman and now it was Thea's turn to wear it.

    The car rolled into a drive way and the male looked out his window at the house he would be staying at for the next few days, weeks, or possibly even months. It was a nice house there is no denying it, larger than a normal home for one person. A taste of decadence about it but not too much to show off how much wealth her and her family possessed. The car came to a stop and the chauffeur was out and the door was open in a matter of seconds.

    "I will bring the bags," he smiled before disappearing behind the vehicle. Ezra looked at the front door and walked toward it before pressing the doorbell and waiting for Thea to answer.

    Elijah Devereux
    Elijah watched as Jacob stepped further into his home, yet he could hear the soft footsteps going up the stairs and into a room on the second floor of the house. He didn’t mention anything to the clearly devasted couple, only because Jacob seemed to have caught on to his daughter’s action. His eyes found a sobbing Trina which only caused more discomfort for Elijah, so he turned his attention onto the family photos that hung across the walls of the house.

    All the while he silently listened to the scene which was unfolding inside and now outside the house, obviously he didn’t involve himself as it wasn’t his place. Besides even if Nadia had managed to get into her car and flee, he’d be able to find her. He had her scent now and it was a scent that had caught him off guard, blood always had a strong sweet scent to it. Either it was pumping through a male or female, but Nadia’s blood had this fruity but also musty scent which seemed to mesh perfectly together.

    His bright eyes moved to watch as Jacob carried his only daughter back into the house and set her feet back onto the ground, only for the young girl to crumple with the emotions that had filled her body. Emotions never made sense to Elijah, why someone would want to put them through what he was witnessing was something he had never understood. Perhaps it was a human thing, but vampires still had emotions, a fact that most humans were surprised to find out. Elijah simply pushed his emotions to the very deepest part of his mind, emotions got in the way for him, so he decided to ignore them and have done for many years.

    “I do apologise for this, Mr Jones.” Elijah’s smooth voice finally sounded as he moved closer to Jacob, he was sorry that he was there as he still didn’t want a human wife. He didn’t want a human hanging around him at all. Moving over to the young girl, Elijah leaned down and easily lifted Nadia up into his arms. He didn’t want to be there any longer and he was there for one reason, that reason was currently in his arms.

    Elijah didn’t say much more then that as he turned around and carried the sobbing girl out of the house, she would grow to forgive him eventually and if she didn’t, then it wasn’t something that Elijah would be concerned with. His hold on the human was firm although not enough to hurt her as he carried her over to where his car was parked, he had driven to the Jones’ house as he didn’t want to force any of his staff to endure the car drive home.

    Unlocking his car, Elijah opened the passenger side door and lowered Nadia in before he reached across her slim body as he ticked the seatbelt buckle into place. Shutting the car door he was beside her behind the wheel in less then a second, and a second later they were pulling away from the home the human had grown up in.
    Thea Dufort
    Thea wanted to enjoy her last hours as a free woman, because once Ezra arrived that would be it for the both of them. Many vampires only married once, while some didn’t marry at all and had fun with whomever they chose. In the Dufort family, you must find another suitable vampire to marry and that was it. There was no divorce or separation, one could only search for love again if a partner were to actually die. Thea had grown up wanting that to be her happy ending, that she would find the perfect man for her and she’s get married and be happy.

    This was not her happy ending.

    It was too late now, the two families had shaken hands and that was final. Thea would need to grow used to Ezra and learn how to tolerate him, as being together was sadly what their lives were going to be from now on. Once she had finished her blood, she washed up her dishes in the kitchen and spent the next hour focusing on herself. Until the sound of tyres turning into her driveway met her ears, a long heavy sigh passed through her lips as she stood there just listening to the car approaching her home.

    Hearing the doorbell ring, Thea glared at the wooden door as she moved closer. Her hand gripped the door handle before she pulled the door back, her eyes instantly landing on Ezra who stood before her. “Good Morning Ezra, come on in.” She spoke as she stepped off to the side to allow room for him to enter her home, her face was rather blank until she was greeted by Ray the chauffeur who had been working for her family since she was born.

    “Good Morning Miss Dufort,” Ray smiled at the blonde heiress as he carried the bags for Master Van Doren, “Good Morning Ray, you know which bedroom Ezra will be using.” Thea smiled warmly at the older male vampire, any other day she would have lightly scolded him for not calling her Thea. However, Ray was only formal when other vampires or the extended Dufort family were around.

    She watched as Ray carried the bags upstairs until he had disappeared, closing the door again her eyes moved onto Ezra. “How was the flight?” She asked standing there by the front door, how was one meant to greet their future husband when it was an arranged marriage? She was to marry this man in under a month and all she knew about him is what she had heard from others, that he was a murderous heartless douche.

    How her parents thought this was a good idea was beyond her, because she already knew she wouldn’t get along with someone like that.

    Nadia Jones

    Nadia was distraught, she felt as the male lifted her into his arms, he was like ice. She shivered, the coolness of his skin contrasting with the heat of her own causing her to break out into goosebumps. She refused to look at the vampire as he placed her in his car. As he leant over her to buckle her in she closed her eyes, ribbons of tears tracking down her cheeks. She didn't want to look at him, she didn't want to believe this was real. She wanted to wake up in her own bed and realised this was all just a horrible nightmare.

    The car pulled out of the driveway and she knew this wasn't a dream, this was in fact real, her parents had made a deal with the devil and that deal included her hand in marriage. She fought to quell her sobbing. Her chest burned with restraint and she found it hard to breathe and swallow but she had to stop. Crying would get her now where. She didn't want to feel anything. She would rather be numb.

    Opening her eyes she looked out of her window at the passing scenery. Streets she knew passing by her like memories. A sudden urge to unlatch her seat belt and throw herself out of the door overtook her.

    "What did you do?" she asked instead, not moving her gaze from the passing scenery, "Or what did someone in your family do for this situation to arise? This shitty arranged marriage?" her words were laced with ferocity as anger began to take hold of her. She knew crying was going to get her nowhere, and if she got mad enough maybe he would simply dispose of her and be done with this. Nadia knew stories of this vampire and she had a feeling that he wouldn't be so kind. No he would go through with the marriage and torture her the entire time.
    Ezra Van Dorn

    Ezra looked around the home, it was decent not as lavish as he was used to but rather quaint. His eyes landed on his future wife. He could tell she was not impressed about this situation and she was, it seemed, trying to make an effort. He commended her.

    "The flight was... decent I guess." he shrugged. What were the two of them supposed to talk about, it felt awkward. He knew he was supposed to give her the ring that sat in his pocket but he didn't really want to. "How are you?" he mentally cringed with how badly this was going. He felt like a school child talking to their crush for the first time. He cleared his throat his eyes locking with hers.

    Thea Dufort was a stunning woman, blonde hair, dark eyes, defined features he could not deny her beauty. Yet he did not wish to marry her, he barely knew her. He would rather be with other women. Wilder women, human women. He had many flock to him and bend to his every desire and he had to admit it he loved every moment of it. He loved the way their blood pumped through their body the more excited they were, feeling their heartbeat and watching their pulses before sinking his fangs into their delicate skin and tasting them. It was the most exhilarating thing and there was no denying the sex was pretty good to.

    Ezra did wonder what Thea would be like in the bedroom department, sweet and delicate or wild and rough. His eyes wandered over her as he thought about it. He was sure he would find out one day soon. As they were to be husband and wife.

    Elijah Devereux
    Elijah smirked as he held back a chuckle at the tone of voice that came from the human sitting beside him in his fancy sports car, the anger in her voice was rather adorable however it was also an emotion that only his family showed towards him. Everyone else, vampires included, would never dream of speaking to him in the way Nadia was. Humans were stupid if they did because that would simply annoy him and he could end a human life in a second, and other vampires respected his family and knew that Elijah could very well cause trouble for vampires that disrespected him.

    “If I had thought this through at the time, then you wouldn’t be here.” But Elijah hadn’t thought about the consequences of what he suggested that one fateful night, but he had and now he had to deal with it. He hadn’t expected Nadia to ask him the reason as to why they were to be married, honestly, he had expected her to either ignore him in silence or to cry and scream the entire drive to his home. He wasn’t surprised that her parents hadn’t gotten around to telling their daughter everything that happened, again it seemed like humans let their emotions get the better of them.

    “Well, it’s my fault that we’re both here.” Elijah admitted as he drove through the dead quiet streets, the streetlights forming a path as he drove. The rumble of his car echoing as he took the turns and corners, heading further away from the town that Nadia had grown up in. “I was on my way home after this party and I came across a car accident,” He glanced over at Nadia as he drove, unsure if her parents would have ever mentioned this night to her. “I didn’t witness the accident but saw the aftermath of it, it was a head on collision with a drunk driver who had crossed onto the wrong side of the road.” Elijah would never forget that night, and he had tried to block that night out, but he just couldn’t.

    “Your father waved me down, whether he knew who I was or not in that second, I’m still not sure. He asked me if I could help,” Elijah sighed softly as he looked out the windshield, “Your mother was pinned inside the crumpled wreak of the car and she was bleeding heavily,” That was the image that couldn’t leave Elijah’s mind, seeing the unconscious woman pinned inside the car clearly bleeding out from her wounds and her panicked husband who was terrified of losing her. “So, I tore the metal back and saved her life,” Elijah knew it wasn’t a big deal, it was something he could do everyday if he wanted to. Use his blood to heal human people, yet that wasn’t what he went around doing because he didn’t care that much. Why did he save Trina? Elijah didn’t know, maybe it was because he was feeling good or because he had a great night partying with other vampires and humans.

    The drunk driver had survived the crash for about half an hour after he saved Trina’s life, that’s when Elijah took the man’s life for what he had done.
    Thea Dufort
    Thea wanted to make her escape at that moment, it was incredibly awkward and didn’t feel natural. This isn’t how things were meant to go in her life, especially not with her future husband. Ezra was undoubtedly handsome, Thea wasn’t blind to his good looks. He was the type of man that Thea tended to be attracted to, but from what she had heard of his personality, that is what she wouldn’t find attractive.

    She had heard of the wild parties he would attend and even hold himself, the people he would surround himself at these parties weren’t people that Thea would ever associate with. She knew that he had sex with other vampires and with humans, which is a choice that he clearly made long ago.

    Shrugging her shoulders Thea thought about how she should answer his question, “I’m fine” She settled on as it was the easiest answer she could give, it was obvious neither of them wanted this. There was no reason for her to bring up how she was actually feeling, because she was certain that Ezra would share how she was feeling. Looking into his crystal eyes, she did wonder if they were even going to get along. Or if the difference in their lifestyles would push them apart, because even if they didn’t get along, they were stuck with each other from now on. And that was hard for Thea.

    Then Thea noticed the way Ezra’s eyes moved over her body and that rubbed her the wrong way, she was not a piece of meat that he was going to control. She wasn’t going to bend at his every command, she was nothing like the human women that threw themselves at him. “Whatever you’re thinking right now, you can stop it.” Thea had always been a strong-willed person, she was a Dufort she had to be strong. And she wasn’t going to change who she was as a person for a man or anyone, she wasn’t that type of person. She knew who she was and she liked who she had grown to be, Ezra would not be changing that.

    Nadia Jones:

    "Wait, what?" Nadia's head snapped around when the blonde haired vampire mentioned that her parents had been in a car accident. She had never been told of this, she would have thought her parents may have mentioned that they had been in a horrific accident. "When?" if it had been after 1995 surely she would remember something like that happening. If it had been before she was born maybe this had been what he had wanted in return. Why though? Why would he want a human? Why would he want to marry a human? She would never understand the mind of a vampire.

    "I really don't understand why you could possibly want a human bride? Aren't there enough vampiresses around... or whatever they are called." she asked her eyes moving away from the vampire and looking out at the passing scenery.
    Ezra Van Dorn

    Ezra laughed at the feistiness of the female vampire that stood before him. He tried to wipe the thoughts from his mind and compose himself. "Very well," he nodded his head. The ring box that was in his pocket was starting to get heavy. digging his hand into the pocket of his pants he pulled out the velvet box

    "This is for you," I looked down at the box before flipping it open and holding it out to the heiress. "Normally I would get down on my knees but I believe we are passed that... considering neither of us want this." with that he threw the box at her softly before turning and taking in the room. "So... where will I be sleeping?"

    Sorry the reply is short but I hope it's okay

    Elijah Devereux
    Elijah shrugged his shoulders as his piercing eyes stayed on the road in front of him, “Late 80’s”, He spoke as he knew it was before Nadia been born, as her scent wasn’t in the wreck of what used to be a car nor was her intoxicating scent on her parents. Turning a few more corners before the trees grew more dense as he drove along the winding driveway, “When I came across your parents, I had been younger, you could say.” He had already been a vampire for many years and has seen many different periods of time, so he did consider himself to be ‘younger’ when he came across the human couple who needed his help.

    “I honestly hadn’t thought it though, like I said I was younger than…” Maybe he thought he could use the human as a personal blood bank or a maid, but he had a maid and he could drink blood from a woman at a snap of his fingers. Women flocked to him, both human and vampire so he really didn’t need to have a human bride.

    “Here we are,” Elijah grinned as he drove into the garage, the door rolling down behind them. Climbing out of his car, he moved swiftly around and held the passenger side door open for the beautiful brunette. He watched her. The way she moved, her eyes taking everything in that was around her, the fruitiness of her shampoo which lingered on her dark locks. “Did you want me to show you the house or would you rather lock yourself away in your new room?” He smirked as he let his eyes roam over her perfect body, curves in all the right places for him. He could already imagine how it would feel to run his hands over her curves, to feel her warm soft skin under his cold fingers.
    Thea Dufort
    It took everything inside of Thea not to glare at Ezra when he laughed, she didn’t want to act like a bratty child who wasn’t getting their way. She watched as he tossed a velvet box over to her, which she easily caught without a problem. Was she disappointed that he hadn’t gotten down on one knee? She didn’t know. Of course, she wanted her future husband to be on one knee when he proposed to her. But she didn’t want it to be Ezra, yet it still felt like there was a part missing. “Upstairs, second door on the left.” She told him where the spare bedroom was, it wasn’t anything fancy, but it would have what he would need.

    Looking down at the ring, Thea knew it had been passed down through the Van Doren family. It’s what happened when there was a marriage involving a large and old vampire family. The ring took her breath away, it was absolutely stunning even if it came from a man she didn’t want to have in her life. There was nothing she could do now, this marriage was happening and that was the end of it. A soft sigh passed her lips as she watched him make his way upstairs.

    As awkward as it felt to have Ezra there in her home, she didn’t want it to continue to feel like that. She didn’t want to live the rest of her abnormally long life feeling uncomfortable with her husband, it would take some time but she wanted to give it a go and she hoped that Ezra would too. “My room is at the end of the hallway, let me know if you need anything.” She looked over to him, she could definitely do better than Ezra but she could also do a lot worse then him.

    Nadia Jones

    Nadia didn't know what to say, her parents had been in a car crash several years before she was born. Yet she had never seen an scar mark or neither of them suffered an ongoing injury. She looked at the male, she was worried she may regret asking this question but she needed to know.

    "My parents... uhm... they don't have any scars nor do they have any injuries... uhm..." she hated how she was stammering like an idiot but she was finding it hard to find the words. "Did you give them any of your blood?" Nadia knew that the magical power of vampire blood is that it can heal any injury inflicted on humans.

    Nadia turned as the car pulled into the driveway of a reasonably large mansion. The car rolled to a stop in the garage. Turning she looked at the vampire as he questioned her, she was almost tempted to get the house tour but when she saw his eyes roaming over her she changed her mind.

    "I would like to be shown to my room thank you," with that she got out of the car and closed the door not wanting to feel his eyes on her anymore.

    "Thank you," the male smiled bowing at the waist and turned beginning to make his way to his room. It was only a hour or two till dawn and he really needed to sleep. When the male woke he almost wanted to see the ring on her finger, to see what the stone resting on her dainty finger. "Good night then Thea." he called over his shoulder.

    He turned when Thea spoke again, a smile spreading across her face, "I will be sure to knock if I need anything." with that he headed toward the room. Once in the room he lowered the block out curtains and stripped off his clothes crawling underneath the blankets as he twirled his daylight ring around his finger his thoughts drifting to the blonde haired vampiress.

    Elijah Devereux
    Elijah knew that he had to be patient with Nadia, she was still attempting to wrap her mind around what had happened at her family home and everything that she was now learning of her parents and the reason as to how a vampire had first encountered them. Obviously, a human brain worked and processed words slower than a vampire brain. Normally, Elijah never worry about things like this because the only time he was around humans was when he wanted a fresh drink and if he wanted to have sex with a human woman or women as it sometimes occurred. “Your mother wouldn’t have survived if I didn’t offer her my blood, your father was more stubborn until he realised one of his ribs had broken and pierced his lung.” He explained which he had thought would be the job of her parents, if he hadn’t arrived at the Jones house when he had maybe they would have gotten the chance to. Perhaps not, with how the human had reacted to the news about Elijah’s request.

    Chuckling under his breath, he gave a slight nod of his head. “As you wish, love.” He watched as she climbed out of his car, he moved over to the door that lead into the entrance of his home. He held the door open for Nadia, “After you,” He glanced over to her, even with the reputation that he had, his parents had still raised him right. He could be the perfect gentleman, when he wanted to be. Once the brunette beauty had past him and walked through the door, he followed her and closed the door behind him. “This way,” He spoke leading the way up the staircase, he would ensure she was given a guide of her new house in the morning. Either by himself if he wasn’t busy, if he didn’t have the time then he would let one of the staff do it.

    Walking down the hallway, he stopped outside a closed door as he secretly hoped that Nadia liked her new bedroom. Elijah would never admit it but he had put a lot of thought and time into making Nadia’s bedroom perfect for her. The room was very spacious with plenty of space for her belongings, an ensuite which had a wonderful view of the back garden yet the room could still be decorated by Nadia to make it more of her own space. Of course, that was until Nadia moved into his master bedroom which was at the end of the hallway. Though Elijah knew that wouldn’t be happening any time soon. “Here you go,” Elijah pushed the door open to reveal the bedroom to Nadia, he would give her some space and time so she could come to terms with her new life.
    Thea Dufort
    Thea’s eyes followed as her future husband disappeared down the hallway, her fingers holding the ring box in her palm. After a few minutes of standing there, she also made her way upstairs and into her bedroom. Closing the door behind her, she quickly closed the curtains and changed into her pyjamas before she crawled into her bed. The box now sitting on the bedside table, should she wear it or wait until the wedding. Thea wasn’t sure, she knew her mother would tell her to put the ring on because that is what was expected of her. Much like it was expected of Ezra to give the ring to her, but Thea wasn’t like her mother, at least not in that way.

    It wasn’t long before Thea drifted off into a deep sleep, her dream centred around one particular vampire who was now under her roof. Once awake the blonde stretched her body before getting out of bed and heading into her bathroom, taking a shower and getting dressed before she opened the block out curtains and felt the warmth of the sun hit her face. Sighing softly she sat on her bed, lifting the box into her hand, she opened it to reveal the beautiful ring which she slid onto her finger because it was easier than holding off until the upcoming wedding.

    Making her way downstairs and into the kitchen, she grabbed a blood bag from the fridge and poured the red liquid into a mug before she warmed it up. “Help yourself if your hungry,” She spoke when she heard Ezra’s footsteps behind her.
