"What if I get pregnant?"
Niall smiled a little bit over my question. He crept closer to me and he kept his arms tighter around my body.
"Just so you know the truth, we can't have children as long as you are you, and I'm a vampire."
It was something new. I looked at Niall and I hesitated over all my questions.
"You mean we can't have children as it is now, or that you can't make me pregnant?"
Niall kissed me on the cheek, and finally, it was a topic that he seemed to like.
"A vampire can never make an ordinary girl pregnant." he whispered soothing. "If you want to be pregnant, it's only once a year that it can be done and also you must be a vampire first."
"Can Sam find us?"
Niall smiled a little bit. I didn't chose to ask any questions at the same time, I just snuck them into the conversation. We sat on the terrace and I ate food. Niall sat reclined in the sun bed and he seemed to not mind over my questions.
"Yes!" he said honestly. "Sam's one of the best vampires that exist. He's one of the older and he can look up a pin on the other side of the earth by just using his senses."
I gasped. It sounded like I should be afraid over if he would find us, but Niall smiled reassuring to me.
"He's not just out to get me, and if we're lucky, he might forget to look."
I assumed he meant it seriously.
"Is that why you told Liam that things will calm down?"
Niall nodded with satisfaction.
"Sam is looking for power, and he must do more than kill me to access it."
"So why did we fled from the country?"
He laughed a little bit.
"I wanted to take you away from the danger." he said kindly, and he looked at me with love. "It's for your sake that I'm here and I'm going to protect you."
It felt wonderful that he wanted to protect me, but at the same time I didn't want to be treated like a weak girl. I wasn't weak and I knew how I would defend myself. Niall read my mind, and he raised his eyebrows.
"No you're not weak." he whispered hoarsely. "I know you have a strength that's unique, but I still want you to be away from the midst of war."
I put down the fork and I watched him closely. War? Niall heard my thoughts.
"Yes darling, it's about to be a war, if I can't stop it."
"What if Sam will find us?"
Niall held my hand tightly and he stopped. We were on a pedestrian street and we looked at the shops that were open around the clock. He seemed to think, to get a good answer.
"If he finds us, I have to lure him away from you."
"And if he still doesn't follow you?"
Niall shook off the images that appeared in his head. He grunted and it was the first time in a long time, he showed that he didn't like my question.
"Can't we talk about something else?" he said quickly. I nodded and I chose to swallow all my questions. Maybe I didn't want to know what could happen?
When we got back to the hotel, Niall closed the windows again, and then he looked at me.
"I want you to know one thing." He said, and he followed me with his eyes. I sat down on the bed.
He smiled weakly.
"Whatever that will happen, I will always belong to you."
I had expected something else, but I was happy. I smiled a little bit and he came up to the bed. He took my hands and he sat down on the floor in front of me.
"This isn't what I had wanted." he whispered. "In my dreams, would there be no danger hanging over us."
I understood that he was trying to tell me that he saw a future with me.
"Niall, I know!"
He shook his head.
"No you don't know what I feel." he said. "I want you to be one of us, but at the same time, I know that you maybe never will say yes. I still want to stay by your side and it doesn't matter if you get old and die. I want you to know about that!"
I dropped his hands and I chose to pull my hands through his hair. I saw at him that he loved me and I felt loved.
"I love you." I whispered honestly. "I really love you, but I don't know if I want to become a vampire or a queen."
He leaned forward and he hid his face against my chest. He took his arms around my body and he seemed almost to sniff in all my scents.
"I feel your love." he murmured against my clothes. "I know what you're thinking and I wish I could convince you."
I wanted the same thing, just at that moment.
"You gave me the ability to choose." I defended myself with. Niall nodded and he looked up at me.
"And I promise that I wont change that. I'm not going to bite you while you sleep or when you least expect it."
I stroked his face.
"Good, because I want you to trust me."
"I trust you."
He kissed me lightly and he nodded with satisfaction.
"Good, now we can move on and maybe stop to ponder above everything else?"
Will be more... :) ♥
