It was spring in the big city, but for Selena it felt more like early fall. There was a small nip to the air causing goose bumps to break out across her chest, down her arms until it hit her spine causing her to shudder. She missed the heat from the sun baking down on the island she had spent her whole life. She missed the lycans and the stupid growling they did to each other over little things. Her heart sank the more she thought about her little home she had left with almost no warning to anyone. The quick phone call to her mother likely had caused more stress then relief the month before. What was she doing in a city? A city that really put it in perspective how tiny she was in the great big world. Swallowing, she took a moment to steady her pounding heart beat reminding herself that Julian could easy hear her distress with each thump in the car that had picked them up from the airport. No need to alarm him about her stupid fears that tickled at the base of her stomach the more she pondered about what was going to take place the moment they stepped through his childhood home.
There wasn’t a single naïve notion in her mind about what was going to happen or where she was going. Selena was purposefully walking head long into the heart of vampire territory. She was a young woman that had grown up around lycans her whole life on a tiny island off the coast of Florida, all her life she had dreamed of getting away from there but hadn’t. Not until Julian had slammed into her life like a hurricane, throwing up debris and madness like leaves and sticks. They still had minor problems to work out, what couple didn’t? But she was happy. Happy to let him get to twisted into her life that she had placed her life in his hands since he asked her to go with him away from the lycan court. Mate, a word she had never thought she’d use. Husband, sure but mate implied so much more than that. If she wanted to be technical, they weren’t married by human standers. However, by vampire and even lycan ones, they were.
Outside the window, her deep brown eyes took in the tall buildings that seemed to reach up straight to the wispy clouds lining the dark night sky. There were no stars, another thing New York was lacking when compared to the island and its small town. Reaching down, her fingers curled around her wrist to be reminded that she didn’t have a single bangle on, most of her good ones were made of silver or silver coating both of which Julian was severely allergic to. “I feel naked…” Her words were mumbled but she was positive her mate had heard them properly. Selena without jewelry was like a snake charmer with a snake. Completely unheard of. Shifting in the seat, the leather seemed to squeak out a protest of the shifting weight causing her to stop instantly. Glancing up to the rear view mirror, her eyes locked with the vampire’s who was driving and saw them flashed from an icy blue to a deep blood red. Steeling her back, she glared at the man in the driver’s seat as he was clearly trying to add to the growing fear in the belly of her stomach. She hated being afraid, hated feeling like she was small and completely unimportant to a single person in the world. The vampire seemed to realize that even if Selena was terrified on the inside, and even if he could smell it rolling off her body in waves, she wasn’t about to admit it to him. Maybe to Julian. But not some random vampire.
The vampire driving the luxury car broke eye contract with Selena making her feel a little better knowing she still had her normal fight in her given where they were on route to. All too soon, the car came to a slow halt at the doors to the coven mansion. Cocking her head, she took in the size of it and couldn’t help but compare it to the palace she use to work in. “The palace is much bigger.” Grinning at Julian, she slid out of the car as it was opened by the driver.
