Review this Chapter
Alice quickly sought out the dress that she’d seen in her vision and dragged Eve off to the salon. After the stylist was finished, Eve got a small makeover, mostly blush. When they were finally done fixing her up, she was striking enough to put the world’s top models to shame.
To occupy themselves until it was time, Eve and Alice wandered the city streets of Seattle. At around ten at night, they began looking for the street that was in the vision. They found the run down bookstore from the vision, and Alice wished Eve luck, saying that she’d be right around the corner if anything bad happened.
Eve waited, and waited, and waited some more. She was starting to wonder if it was the wrong street or day, when a gust of wind blew the smell of spearmint her way. She tensed, and was suddenly worried that she would fail. The tall figure didn’t see her at first, giving her a chance to erase herself from his memory. She replaced her image with some girl that she’d seen in the mall that day.
Eve came out of her hiding spot and strutted towards Rex. She turned, as she had in the vision, and smiled at him, successfully getting his attention. He pivoted and followed, staring longingly at her swaying hips. Using Edward’s power, she read his mind to make sure he didn’t think anything was suspicious. Thankfully, he was too distracted about hoping that he’d get lucky to notice anything odd about the situation.
She led him into a small alley way, and he followed eagerly.
“Hey gorgeous.” he purred. Eve stepped back and grinned widely when he took a step towards her in response. “What’s a beauty like you doing out so late?”
“Just looking for someone to play with.” she seduced. “I think you could do…” She tilted her head, perking her lips in a concentrated way.
“Oh really now? Lucky me.” he whispered, roughly grabbing at her hips and shoulders.
Success! Eve’s thoughts screamed. She was so occupied with wining her little battle that she didn’t notice when his lips crashed with hers. His kisses were nothing like Marcus’s. They were harsh and demanding, bruising her snowy lips. She pushed him back, but he refused to stop kissing her. His tongue pushed its way into her mouth and Eve decided that was enough.
She grabbed his face and tugged it off. A growl vibrated his body and he attached his angry lips to her neck. Eve froze; she didn’t know what to do. He was much stronger than her and used that advantage. She was about to call out to Alice when a female voice intruded her mind.
Goddamn Rex. I told him to be here at twelve o’clock sharp! What’s taking him so long?
Letting out a small sigh that Rex probably wouldn’t catch, Eve turned to whisper in his ear. “Someone’s looking for you and she doesn’t sound too happy.” she sneered.
“Shit. I can’t let her catch me with you.” he swore franticly, running his hands through his hair and pacing in circles.
“Don’t worry about it, I’m gone.” Eve told him gratefully.
He grabbed onto her wrist as she backed into the shadows. “Will I ever see you again?” he asked desperately.
A wicked grin claimed Eve’s face. “Oh, don’t worry. You’ll see me again soon enough.” With that she danced off to go find Alice.
Alice was waiting for her on the other side of the bookstore. “How’d it go?” she asked eagerly.
“Perfect. I’m just going to need a lot of mouth wash.” Eve’s nose wrinkled and Alice giggled.
“Let’s get back home, shall we? I’m sure Marcus is to the point of chewing his fingernails off by now. Wouldn’t want that to happen.”
Sure enough, when they got home, Marcus was pacing the room like a caged leopard. When they pulled up, he dashed out of the house and gathered Eve up in a dangerously tight hug, lifting her off the ground. “Don’t you ever worry me like that again.” he mumbled into her hair.
After his initial shock was over, he placed her down on the ground again and noticed how wonderful she looked. A smile played on her lips as he so blatantly ogled her. Worry crossed his face and he looked into her eyes again. “He didn’t hurt you did he?”
Eve shrugged her small bare shoulders. “Not really. It certainly wasn’t pleasant though.”
Alice left them alone and walked inside to reunite with Jasper.
“What did he do?” Marcus growled lowly.
“Don’t worry so much, I’m fine.” she giggled. “However, I wouldn’t object if you decided to kiss me. You’re much better at it than him.” She frowned, remembering how rough and insistent Rex had been.
“Your lips look a little bruised. Want me to make them better?” Marcus smiled down at her.
“Yes please.” She wrapped her arms around his neck and let him sweep her into a soft, loving kiss.
Without breaking the kiss, he picked her up, letting her wrap her legs around his waist, and carried her up the stairs and into their room.
They snuggled into bed together, and Marcus helped Eve take her hair down. He chuckled into her neck where he’d been placing light kisses. “You should take a shower love. No offence, but you smell rather minty and it’s blocking out your lovely jasmine smell.” he cooed.
Eve sighed, not wanting to stop what they were doing. “I should, this makeup’s getting on my nerves.”
She got up reluctantly and headed into the shower to scrub the obnoxious amounts. The plan had worked, she could tell. Of course, before the battle she’d need to practice. None of them could afford for her to mess up.
Marcus could hear her singing quietly in the shower. Her voice was so magical, that he felt for a minute that it could put him to sleep. Half an hour later, she stepped out of the bathroom dressed in a silky tank top and matching shorts. His jaw dropped the sight, but he quickly recovered. He opened his arms to her and she gratefully fell into his embrace. The day’s activities had worn her out and it was easy to slip into a deep sleep.
At around four in the morning, Eve tossed in her sleep and started talking in perfect sentences once again. This time, however, it wasn’t a nightmare that made her squirm.
She hummed contently in Marcus’s arms. “Edward, come in here please. Your powers are requested.” Marcus said in a low voice.
The door opened and a vampire with copper hair poked his head in. “You rang?” He walked over and sat on the edge of their bed. “You’d like me to read her and see what she’s dreaming.” he restated Marcus’s thoughts just to be sure, and Marcus nodded.
Edward chuckled at the thoughts going through her head. “What is it?” Marcus questioned curiously.
“I’m not exactly sure if Eve would want me to tell you what’s going on in her head, if you catch my drift.” Eve chose that moment to speak up.
“Oh Marcus. I love you so much. Please don’t stop.” she moaned. Marcus’s face flushed just barely. Edward chuckled.
“I think it’s safe to say that she’s having a rather enjoyable dream.” Edward laughed, standing up to return to his and Bella’s room.
“Let’s never mention this to her, agreed?” Marcus pleaded. He didn’t want to embarrass Evangelina, and he knew that telling her about this dream would certainly do that.
Edward nodded in agreement. “I’ll try my best, but I can’t promise anything. She might read my past, and there’s no way to hide that.”
They both decided that they’d hide it the best they could, and returned to comforting their loved ones.
“Sleep well Eve, I promise you that I’ll make your dreams come true soon enough.” Marcus whispered to her, rubbing her back gently, trying to keep out all of the nightmares that hovered on the horizon.
