10. Chapter Ten

I sit in my office going over some paperwork. Shade was supposed to go over some of this stuff. That's why he's second in command. Maybe it's a good thing he left me all of this paperwork. At least I can get my mind off things for a while. It gets pretty hectic being the alpha of both a clan and a pack. An open letter caught my attention. I grabbed it and started reading it. My eyes widened as I read over the letter.

I knew that this was going to happen. I'd heard about it before, but I guess I just pushed the thought to the back of my mind. Other powerful vampires are looking for me. They want me in their clan because I'm said to be the most powerful female in existence. They want to use me for their own gain. My clan and pack would never do that to me. They're loyal and I'm loyal to them. They won't be able to find me though. I'll make sure of it.

The door opens and in walks Raven. She sits down. I raise my eyebrows. This must be something important.

"I don't know if you know this yet or not, but I've been told to tell you that other clans are looking for you." Raven said. I nodded my head.

"I already knew, but thank you for telling me." She nodded her head. There's something else that's bothering her though. I can tell. "What else?"

"We will take care of it. We'll make sure nobody finds you." I smiled. Their loyalty to me amazes me to this day. I just don't want their loyalty to me to end up hurting them.

"Thank you, Raven. You may go now." She nodded her head and got up. She left the room and I returned to my paperwork.

Everything seems to be coming together. Everything is going the way I want it to. I'm getting closer and closer to breaking this curse. I will let those vampires look for me for a while longer. But there's a certain clan I want. I've seen it in all of my visions. It must be Devon's clan. That is the clan I must take over. If I succeed, which I will, I'll be able to break the curse. I'm confident that that is the way to breaking this damned curse.

*******

"I would like to have a meeting with Devon." I say to Shade. He gives me a questioning look. "What?" He shakes his head.

"It's just that you hate the guy." I don't know if I do now that I know the truth. But they can't know he's my dad. Not yet at least. Maybe they already know. It always seems like they know more than me. I have to lie.

"Yeah...so?" Shade shakes his head. "That's what I thought." I walk closer to Shade. "Tell him that I'll be coming over to his clan, change it up a bit." I smirked. Shade nodded his head.

"I will send him a letter. What day would you like to meet up?" I thought about it for a moment.

"Tuesday of next week," I answered. Shade sat down and started writing the letter. Once he was finished he handed me the letter to look over. "It's good." Shade left the room to send it. I sat down in the same seat that Shade had been sitting in previously. I will be taking Pandora and Shade along with me. I will send them off to look through the castle for any information that would be useful to me.

Later that night I was sitting on my bed reading a book. I've been busy lately that I haven't had time to just relax. There's a knock on the door.

"Come in," I say. Nathaniel sits down next to me. I haven't seen him all day. I smile at him.

"You're planning something, aren't you?" He asks me. The question takes me aback, but I nod my head.

"Yeah, I am, but it's nothing to worry about." I assure him. He doesn't look convinced. He can always seen right through me. I sigh. "I'm meeting up with Devon next week. And I'm going to have Pandora and Shade look for information that would be useful for me." Nathaniel nodded his head.

"Okay, just don't get caught."

"I won't." He brings his lips to mine, in a needy kiss. His nose brushed against the crook of my neck where his mark would be. "You can mark me if you want." He stares into my eyes.

"Are you sure?" I nodded my head. He kissed down my neck to the crook of it. He licked it and then bit down. I shut my eyes. The pain quickly disappeared and pleasure took its place. Nathaniel licked over the mark again. "You're mine." He said, possessively in my ear.

"I'm yours," I said back. I want to be with him intimately, but I know that as long as this curse exists that won't happen.

"Rome," Nathaniel said.

"What?" I ask him. He smiles at me.

"I love you." I smile at his words. I know that I love him. I've always loved him.

"I love you too." I tell him, meaning every word. His smile widens. For once I'm truly happy and not worried about the curse. The curse can't ruin my love for Nathaniel, nothing can.

*A/N: The next chapter will be about Rome's meeting with Devon. This chapter was more of a filler chapter, but I still had trouble writing it. Anyway I'll update as soon as I can.*
