Waking up early in the morning I decided to take a quick run to the lake, to enjoy its magnificent view.
Since today was a Sunday, there was no hurry to going to university. I still had plenty of hours before Alexander would come and pick me for the day out.
It's been quite a few days since we became friends, and let me be very honest with the fact, his friendship was the best feeling in the world.
He had been taking care of me as a boyfriend, loving me as a friend, and was always there if I needed anything. After a lot of courage, I also told him about the death of my parents and the real reason why I was here.
There had been times when things became heated between us, like when it comes to choosing between him or food, I'll always choose food and he would get angry over that, but to be very honest, I don't think I can choose anything over him anymore.
Coming back to the present, we were going to a Carnival on the countryside beach which was around 1.5, hours away from here. Don't ask me, it was his plan and I couldn't deny him when he said he wanted to go. Besides, we were not alone, everyone including Daniel, Aiden, Chris, Angela, Tina, Sean was going.
Quickly changing into a decent pair of comfortable clothes, I locked the door before running towards the lake.
It was looking more beautiful than I expected, with the sun just above the horizon, spreading its redness both in the sky and on the lake, it appeared orangish-red in color, with small fishes swimming in it.
Breathing in the fresh air, I smiled looking up in the sky. It was soo calm and tranquil with birds chirping melodically. Sighing loudly, I was about to sit on the same rock where I sit daily when I heard him coming or should I say sneaking behind me.
"You came," I said without looking behind.
He also had been keeping me a good company since the day we met. I don't know what and over me that I named this wolf, thunder. If someone would see me, he might think there's something wrong with my head for me to play with a wolf almost 2.5 my size like this.
However, I liked him soo much that, I couldn't even describe what to say about him. He was large, there was no doubt in it, but he looked so domestic, besides when he is near me, I always feel a strange sense of being protected. I mean, with his size, he can protect me from other wolves and wild animals at least.
He sat beside me in an upright position, looking at me with adorable eyes.
"Huh!! God is so cruel. Even a large animal like you looks more adorable than me." I said before ruffling his fur. He would look offended whenever I would touch his ears, but I knew he liked it because he would always release a small bowl whenever I stop.
"You know, today I am going to a Carnival with my friends. Do you know what a carnival is? How would you know? It is somewhere, where we humans can play and have fun.
There are lots of rides, interesting things, shops, and food. Do you guys have something like this? Maybe you guys collect hunted animals and place them in between before enjoying the feast? Maybe that's your kind of party I guess?" I mumbled to no one in particular.
"I might not come in the evening to meet you. Will you miss me?" I asked as I laid my head on his back while ruffling him.
A small howl from him confirmed that he would miss me. I know it was pretty insane to talk with him. He might not even understand most of my words, but something in the look he throws at me every time I share something with him, tells me, he gets everything I tell him.
"Time passed soo quickly when I am with you. If you were a man like the Jacob one in the Twilight movie, I would've taken you to my home so that we could always be together." I said, then laughing at my imagination.
Was it even real for a human to change into a wolf? Maybe it's just because of me living alone in that large house, I am feeling a sense of loneliness, and desire for someone to share that house with me. Plus, those ancient stories that Marla told me have gotten into my head.
Seeing me lost in my imagination, thunder nuzzled my neck almost making me fall on my butt in the process.
"You are soo cute, I don't think, my house gate will be able to take you in, besides people in the town will get scared if I take you. We'll meet again tomorrow okay?" I asked while kissing his head multiple times.
I don't know why but I always feel like I should coax him. Showing adoration and love to him, always makes me happier, which in turn makes me love him more.
Kissing him goodbye, I started running towards my house with my wild imaginations of how to make him enter my house still going inside my head.
I washed up quickly, took a shower, and got dressed in comfortable jeans and a top with my windbreaker jacket and boots. Preparing myself a quick breakfast that mainly contained pasta and milkshake, I started eating enjoying my masterpiece. There were still 30 minutes or so till Alexander's arrival.
Maybe I can watch a movie till then, I have a habit of watching a movie at the speed of 2x while skipping things anyways.
Before I could even decide in which movie to watch, the doorbell rang, confusing me, as to who it is. Marla never comes early in the morning.
Shrugging my shoulders I yelled, 'coming' before standing to open the door.
"Hey, morning beautiful," Alexander said hugging me, as soon as I opened the door.
"Good morning to you too. Didn't you say you'll come till 10?" I asked confused, before closing the door. His random hugs always leave me speechless with my heart beating like I ran a marathon.
"Well, I was getting bored at home anyways, that's why I decided to drop by early. I hope I am not disturbing anything." He said before plopping on the couch, looking as handsome as ever.
"I came at the right time, I guess."
"Huh?" I asked absentmindedly sitting beside him.
"Breakfast, I brought some doughnuts and cookies. But looking at your pasta, I think we won't need that." He said before beginning to eat.
"Mmmm...it's really good. Are you taking master chef classes or something?" He asked with his mouthful.
Even his moan of approval is so sexy, what would it be like, if I am the one making him moan?
"Victoria? You there?" He asked waving his hand in front of my face, bringing me out of my shameful thoughts.
"I asked what were you watching?"
"Ohh..about that, I haven't decided yet. Do you want to watch something? You can play it as you like." I said before standing up abruptly, to clean the dishes.
He and me in the same house, inside the same room, on the same couch, wasn't a good idea probably, for my mind. It's not like he has not been here before, but the last time he came, everyone was there. This time it felt soo much different.
"What are you thinking about, beautiful? Are you not feeling well? You seem so out of place today, I mean you seem lost in your world. Is something bothering you? Something I can help you with?" Alexander said standing directly behind me.
My heart was beating soo fast right now, that I was even scared to turn around and look into his eyes.
'This is an illusion Victoria. It's all because he is handsome and sweet. Don't spoil your friendship over these nasty temporary thoughts.' I repeated in my mind before taking a deep breath and turning around.
"Nothing like that. So, What's the plan? I mean, how is everyone going?" I asked changing the topic quickly before, going back to the single-person sofa, to maintain a good distance from him.
"We are taking three cars, everyone else is going in Daniel's and Aiden's car. While you are going with me?" Alexander said as a matter of fact.
"Why? I mean, is there no place for two more people? If there is then can't we adjust? It's better than wasting the fuel of another car." I said.
I don't know what came over Alexander's mind, he pulled my sofa towards him, with his right hand, till we were face to face, before looking straight into my eyes.
"Are you by any chance afraid of being alone with me?" He asked skeptically looking at me.
'Was I afraid? Yes. I was afraid, of our proximity. I was afraid that I might do something sinful, or say something sinful that can ruin this beautiful friendship. I was afraid of losing him. But was I really afraid to be alone with him?' I thought.
"Don't worry, I won't kiss you without your permission." He said out of the blue.
"Just kidding beautiful. Look at yourself, acting like a kitten. You are so cute, that I can't help but tease you more to get those cute reactions out of you." He said before stroking my chin.
"I...I think we should get going. Let me bring my purse real fast." I said before rushing towards my room upstairs.
I could faintly hear his laughter, as I closed the door before leaning on it to calm my heart.
Taking my purse quickly, I went downstairs. He was nowhere in sight, probably went outside already. Locking the door, I sat in the co-pilot seat of his SUV.
I turn to him, to ask if other's already started their journey, but, before I could say something I saw him leaning towards me, his face getting incredibly close to mine.
"The first thing we do when we start a journey is to put on our seatbelt." He said before placing my seatbelt in place.
I don't know if it was just me, but I think I saw him briefly looking at my lips before he sat upright in his seat.
"Let's go. Shall we?" He said, giving me one of those handsome heart-melting boyish smiles, making my heart flutter again.
'Oh boy! What was happening to me? Was I turning into a freak now? How will be ever able to resist his charms at this pace?' I thought inside my mind, before looking outside the window enjoying the view.
