        Calista P.O.V

    Waking up I stretched out my new limbs surprisingly feeling them flutter causing a slight breeze to ruffle my hair. Giggling lightly I ran into my closet careful to be quiet, picking out an emerald green dress that showed off my new wings. Slipping into soft white flat shoes I softly placed a kiss on Alex’s lips before I tip toed into the kitchen to make everyone breakfast. I loved to cook but I had hardly been able to because Alex liked to cook for me.

    An hour later and four batches of pancakes  I had made ten chocolate chip pancakes, ten plane, ten blueberry and ten strawberry and ten what I like to call fun pancakes.  Putting the bacon and the sausage on the pan I set the table and placed the pancakes on them. As soon as the bacon began to sizzle I found Kyle and Thayer sitting at the table, and soon after Amelia and Marina followed close behind.  

    “Good morning.” They all said echoing one another. Laughing at their eager faces I placed the rest of the breakfast down at the table. The room smelled of all delectable things, everyone’s faces lit up as they ate, which in my opinion was quite funny as they were all disheveled from sleep.

    “Good Morning.” I said with a smile.

    “OH MY GOD.” Lilly’s voiced echoed through the walls as she ran over to me. “Your wings! They came in! Why didn’t you tell me!” She said gently slapping my arm.

    “Ow!” I yelled dramatically. Laughter erupted through the room as they watched Lilly and I bicker.  

    “Breakfast and a show and no one bothered to wake me?” Said an amused voice behind me.

    “Well dear.” I said in a teasing tone turning around to meet Alex’s eyes. “If you didn’t sleep so late you would have been down here with all of us.”

    “Well if my beautiful Soul mate would have woken me up then I would be up.” He said with a  smile embracing me into a hug. “Good Morning.” He said as he placed a kiss on my head.

    “Good Morning.” I repeated with a content sigh. “Now why don’t you dig in before your family devours the rest of my food whole.” I said looking at Kyle directly.  

    “I cant help it if you’re an amazing cook.” He said helplessly threw a mouth full of blueberry pancake which caused Marina to slap his arm and remind him about his manners. I went to go take my seat as Lilly grabbed me by my wings.

    “Hey!” I yelled.

    “Hey I kinda like these, I can stop you easily now.” She said with a wicked grin. “Now turn I wanna see your wings!” She whined. Laughing I did a little twirl, laughing as she clapped excitedly we all took our seats.  


    A few hours later we were all sitting in the game room, the boys had all challenged one another to a game of pool, Alex was losing miserably and if he lost apparently he had to wear a grass skirt and a coconut bra and walk to the store. I personally thought it was entertaining but Alex had a different opinion on the matter. I was talking with the  girls about wedding plans, and was assured that they were all planning it and only needed my choice on the flowers and the cake. I had of course told them a cheesecake and laughed when I told them the story about the proposal.  

    “What about flowers?” Amelia inquired.  

    “Lilacs and roses.” I admitted. I wanted lilacs in my bouquet to keep my mom close. Thayer would be walking me down the aisle as my own dad is not welcome at the wedding. The wedding was in a week from now. I didn’t know weather to be excited or scared. The boys were helping Alex plan the honeymoon, and Lilly was going to pack for me. Sighing at the thought I knew I was going to have to make sure I got some new clothes wherever I was going because I had no doubt she was going to pack some sort of skimpy underwear.  

    “Calista May Vanwhite.” Turning around at the sound of my name I saw a man in his late twenties holding a package.


    “Something came in the mail for you.” Handing me the package everyone stopped what they were doing and watched me.

    “What.” I questioned afraid to open it.  

    “No one should know that you are here.” Kyle answered. Nodding my head I slowly opened the box. In the box there a letter, and a small box. I carefully opened the first letter and read it. It was written in black ink with fancy swirls and cursive writing.  

    My Dearest Calista, it will suffice to say I was surprised to hear the news of your engagement. I promised you my love that you would see me again, and you will very soon. I will admit, your father was quite shocked when you burned him alive, I will have you know that he is alive and well, and all will be forgiven if you would come back and marry me. You will marry me one way or another, willingly or not I will have you as my own. Until we meet again. With love, Amir.

    With every passing word I read my body began to shake. Slowly Alex had moved closer to me, handing him the letter I began to open the box. A growl ripped through his throat as he read it. As soon as I opened the box I let out a scream of terror. Inside lay a dead dove with a small card the words were written in blood, One death on your hand Calista next week it will be another. Amelia had come up beside me and was slowly leading me away from the box, Kyle was holding Alex back his eyes glowing red.  Lilly had come over and was leading me out of the room, everyone else stayed trying to calm Alex down. He wanted blood, he wanted Amir’s blood for threatening me. He was coming, and soon, and he wanted me.
