9. Chapter Nine

I walked over to my dresser and pulled open one of the drawers. I pushed aside some of my possessions and found what I was looking for. I put it around my neck. The pocket watch Devon gave me, that's how I am going to figure out how to break the curse. I just have to spin it three times. I spun it three times and was lurched forward.

It was a strange feeling, going back in time. I had never experienced anything like it. And I probably wouldn't ever again. I stopped spinning and was standing in front of my old house. I hadn't realized how much I missed this place until now. I miss my old life.

What should I do now? It was night time. I doubt anybody could see me. I heard a door open and quickly hid behind a tree. I know it's not the best hiding spot, but it was the only place to hide. I watched as my mom walked out of the house and into the woods. I saw my old self looking out of the window. My old self shook her head and walked away from the window. Oh, how clueless I was back then.

I quickly followed my mother into the woods. I was fast enough to not be caught and I made sure to be extra quiet. If I got caught who knows what'll happen. I know it won't be good.

I followed her a little ways until she stopped. I hid behind a tree that was close by. I would be able to hear if she was meeting with somebody. I hear another pair of footsteps. I watch my mom look around. My eyes widened when I saw who she was meeting. No, it can't be him. Why? They kissed and he held her in his arms, lovingly.

I could tell that they loved each other. Werewolves and vampires don't typically get along. It's been proven that we can. Just look at my clan and pack.

My dad is Devon, head of the largest clan in the world. And it isn't a lie that we don't get along. Did he give me that watch so that I'd know he's my father? Does he actually want me to break the curse? Or is there something in it for him?

I shook my head. There's nothing else to see here.

In vampire and werewolf government it is prohibited for vampire's and werewolves to mate. Many keep it hidden. They hide in the forest, in hopes to see their loved one once again. It makes me sick that they're keeping mates away from each other. It needs to change.

I took out the watch and turned the time forwards. My surroundings went black and I could feel myself spinning. I shut my eyes, hoping that the dizziness would go away.

I stopped spinning and opened my eyes. I was back in my room. I looked at the time. I had only been gone for three minutes. I left my room and walked down the corridor. The floors had dark red carpet, most of the rooms have this carpet. The walls were black and had pictures of some high leading vampires; the pictures were framed with a black frame. There was a chandelier in the middle of the ceiling, casting a small light so you could see a little ways in front of you. I open the brown wooden door at the end of the corridor. We haven't ever gotten around to painting it. I don't think we ever will.

The room hasn't been used in forever. I think the last vampire that was in here was centuries ago. The walls and floors were wood, as was the ceiling. Every inch of the room was covered in dust. I walked over to the book shelf that was in the corner of the room. I skimmed my index finger across the titles, looking for a specific one. It has to be here.

I finally found it. I took it off the dusty shelf. The book was covered in dust. I blew on it so some of the dust would go away. I opened the book. I guess it's more of a diary though.

I flipped through the pages, looking for the page where she talked about her mate's death. I found the chapter and started reading.

I read it the best I could. Some of the writing was smudged due to it being so old and that at the time she was probably crying. She was a werewolf and he was a vampire. During the time that this diary was written, this specific date, there was a huge war going on between vampires and werewolves.

Turns out another vampire killed her mate. They were both from the same clan. How could somebodies loyalty's change?

Since that awful day the Elders decided to make it so that vampires and werewolves don't mate. They seem to think that it would prevent another war like that one.

"Rome," I quickly shut the book. I looked at the person who had called my name. It was Shade. I rolled my eyes. How did he even know where I was?

"What?" I snapped at him. Luna growled at me to stop using that tone with him. I ignored her. He sat down next to me on the floor.

"I'm sorry about earlier." He said, scratching the back of his neck nervously. I narrowed my eyes at him.

"Are you really?" He nodded his head. I studied him to see if he was lying. He wasn't. "I just want Luna to know that I broke things off with Zaphara."

"I suppose you want to talk to her?" He nodded his head. I sighed. I really don't want to do this. I'm just too nice. I let Luna take over.

"So you're done with her?" I asked him. He nodded his head. He grabbed my hand. It caused shocks to go through my body.

"I want to be with you. I was so incredibly stupid. I was blind, Luna. I'll spend forever trying to make up for all of those times I hurt you." He looked to be on the brink of tears. I leaned over and kissed him. He immediately kissed back.

He pushed me back, so that he was hovering above me. He brought his lips down to my neck. I felt him bite on the crook of my neck. It didn't hurt at all. All I felt was pleasure. Once he was done drinking my blood I flipped us over so I could do the same. We were both starting to grow weak. We needed each other more than ever.

I bit into the crook of his neck. He shut his eyes as I drank his blood. Once I finished I licked the fang marks. I got off of him and sat down on the yellow couch. The ugliest couch I've ever seen in my opinion.

He sat down next to me. "I'll never hurt you ever again, I promise." I smiled and nodded my head. "I know you and Rome want to break the curse." I nodded my head. I think it's pretty obvious we want the curse broken. "I can't say much except that you both are connected not just because of this curse." I glanced at him, confusion written on my face.

"What does that mean?" I asked him. He shrugged his shoulders. He knows he just can't tell me.

"That's all I can tell you and I can't explain it." I nodded my head, sadly. The moon goddess gave him strict orders. I have to respect that.

"Things are going to get worse before they get better, aren't they?" He nodded his head. I hung my head down.

"It'll be okay in the end." He said, drawing circles on my back. His touch soothed me. But I can't believe things will be okay in the end. They'll be different and I don't know if I'll like the change.

"But what if it's not?" He sighed. He doesn't have the answer to that. No one does.

"It'll be fine, Luna. We might lose some people along the way, but we'll always have each other." He smiled sadly at me.

"What if you're the one I lose?" I shook my head. "I can't deal with something like that." I can't imagine a life without him. He's my beloved and if I don't have him I'll go crazy. I'll turn into one of those craze filled vampires.

"Hey, look at me." I did what he said. "I'm not going anywhere." I nodded my head. He wrapped me in his arms. Things are going to get a lot worse. I just know it.

There's a part of my past I can't remember. More like something doesn't want me to remember it. I can't shake the feeling that it's something very important.
