    Chapter Twenty two.

        Calista P.O.V

    Waking up to the smell of roses I rolled over to find my bed was covered in rose petals. On Alex’s pillow was a note.

    Roses for my rose, I love you Calista, I cant wait to see you walking down the aisle. With all my love, yours truly,-Alex.

    Smiling I held the roses to my nose taking in the sweet aroma. Lilly and Marina all came bouncing into my room dressed in their bridesmaid dresses looking absolutely beautiful.   

    “How is our bride to be this morning?” They asked all wide eyed and excited.

    “I am wonderful.” I said with a smile glued to my face. Today is my wedding day, in the back of my mind was Amir’s note but I knew Alex would keep all dangers away from the wedding so I wasn’t worried about it all that much.

    “Good because it is time to get up and get moving!” Amelia said walking in wearing a navy blue gown. Laughing the three of them rushed me into the bathroom. I was shoved into the shower while the three of them got my breakfast. After washing my hair and my body I walked out of the shower, I put on my underwear and a bathrobe walking back into my room. I sat quietly and ate while they did my hair.  

    After four hours of being poked prodded and picked at I was finally ready. My hair was up in delicate bun with curls out framing my face. Little diamonds were placed threw out my hair as well as flowers. Small braids were braided into my hair with green ribbon that matched the dress. My makeup was done in such a way it looked natural but my eyes stood out. The dress hugged my curves perfectly as well as showed my wings making me look like the fairy princess I was. The three of them looked at me with big smiles on their faces and Amelia with tears in her eyes.

    “I couldn’t have asked for a better soul mate for my son.” She said bringing me in for a hug.

    “Oh god don’t go and make me cry Lilly will kill me.”

    “Your damn right I will.” She said with a hand on her hip. A quiet knock came at the door, Lilly ran to open it. Their stood Kyle, Brandon and Thayer.  

    “Is the bride to be ready?” My soon to be father in law asked.

    “Yes I am ready.” Nodding his head I went to take his arm as he lead me out the door. Marina held Kyle’s arm and Lilly Brandon’s. This is it, I thought, I’m getting married.

    Walking to the car we all piled in careful not to wrinkle my dress, we were driving to the wedding location and I was informed that we would have a big crowd. Everyone wanted to see who the future queen would be, meaning all eyes would be on me. Gulping I realized how afraid I was to be up in front off all those people. Amelia looked at me with knowing eyes nodding my head as the car came to a gentle stop. The door opened and revealed a large field and in the distance was a giant lake. I stepped out taking Thayer’s hand as the wedding march started. I tightly held on to my bouquet as everyone stood and looked at me. Lilacs and roses covered every inch of the land. Lilly and Marina walked in front of me and took their places in at the side of the altar while Kyle and Brandon took theirs on Alex’s side. Finally reaching Alex the preacher asked Thayer who is giving this woman to this man. Thayer said he was and handed my hand to Alex who beamed of happiness. Alex wore a black suit that made the color of his eyes stand out, their mystic blue color had me captivated. Looking into his eyes I was lost In them, we listened to preacher talk but by the time it came to our vows we were so lost in each others eyes we had to be asked twice. Laughing he repeated the question. Alex looked me in the eyes and said.

    “Calista I knew from the moment I met you that you were meant to be mine. Every fiber of my being was made for you, was made to love you for better and for worse, in sickness and in health forever and always I promise to stand by your side. To be your best friend, your lover and your protector. I know we had our differences at the start, but as we grew to know one another I was more certain than ever that our love can overcome anything.When I see you Calista time stopes in all these perfect moments, like when we first kissed or that night we stayed out under the stars talking the night away. Every part of me was made to love, protect and honor you. At this moment in time I can say with the utmost certainty that  you have made me the happiest man alive by being here with me today. Calista I love you so much that all words seem inadequate in comparison to how I actually feel.” As he said the final words he slid the ring on my finger, my eyes were misty from tears smiling like a fool I began to recite my vows.

    “I have to admit the moment we met I never imagined you would be the man I marry but I would never have it any other way. I never thought I could love a man as much as I love you, here I am standing here today afraid that I will wake up from this beautiful dream. You are the other half of my being, you are the person I’m meant to spend the rest of eternity with. I can not wait to start my life with you as my best friend, my lover and my protector I promise to always be there when you are in need of comfort or love. I promise to always be there forever and always. The moment I knew I loved you was when you hung my painting on the wall, I was so happy that you loved it, and yet i could not bring myself to admit my feelings, and now looking back I wish I had because we would have had just that much longer to be together. When you're not near me your absence causes my body to run cold. Alex I was made to love you, every fiber of my being every part of my heart and soul belongs to you.  You are the warmth that runs through my body, the first thing I want to see when I wake and the last I want to see when I fall asleep. Alex no woman could love a man as much as I love you, I can not wait to spend the rest of my life with you.” Looking into his misted eyes I slipped the ring on his finger. By this moment we were both on the verge of tears, placing either hand on the side of his face we leaned  in to kiss one another as everyone in the crowed cheered and clapped. Laughing as we broke apart we saw his mother crying as we took our first steps as husband and wife.


    Many hours later the moon was high in the sky when people started to leave. It was a wonderful reception. The limo drove Alex and I back to the house while Lilly and my new mother in law dealt with the rest of the party. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited either. Grasping Alex’s hand as we walked back to our room. Sitting on the bed we looked into one another’s eyes smiling.

    “You looked beautiful today my lovely wife.” He said placing kisses on my cheek.

    “And you my darling husband looked very dashing.” I giggled as he placed kisses along my collarbone.

    “Are you ready?” He whispered in my ear causing me to shiver. Nodding my head he continued to place butterfly kisses along my neck before suddenly biting down. Gasping my eyes shot open as pain then pleasure consumed my body. Before I could stop myself a quiet moan excepted my lips causing me to flush crimson red, smirking he lightly kissed from my collar up my neck and ending on my lips. Kissing him deeply he reached to the nightstand and took out a knife. His lips swollen red from kissing he handed me the knife. Taking off his tie I slowly unbuttoned his shirt, placing soft kisses starting at the base of his neck to the middle, with shaky hands I ran the knife in a small line and quickly pressed my mouth against the bleeding cut. My first thought was I can not believe I am doing this but after a second I was jarred back by an scolding warmness that filled me. My neck started to go numb as I pulled my mouth away from his neck. Looking at his neck I saw a crescent moon resided their, inside were symbols of some ancient text that I recognized as Fae and vampire mixed together. His mark was bold and a deep black I had no doubt that if I looked in the mirror I would see a similar mark. That’s when I noticed I could hear Alex’s thoughts and feel his emotions.

    Yes love it is me in your head.

    Well now I can get into your head too. I said sticking my tongue out.

    Yes my dear you can, we are bonded now.



    I like the sound of that. I thought with a smile, falling back into his embrace we fell into a deep sleep as I looked to the millions of stars that were in the sky. Forever, forever that sounds perfect.
