A/N: Hii, here's the sequel and I can promise you that I've got lots of more drama, secrets and hopefully yummy lime-ish scenes for you ;)
Dead Is The New Alive
"Sara, who is it?" Godric asked worriedly.
Russell winked teasingly at me and tried getting in, but couldn't since he hadn't been invited inside. I flinched a little and noticed that he was covered in cement, making me realize that this wasn't just a very bad nightmare.
Russell Edgington was back.
"Sara?" Godric was walking towards me, but as I blinked Russell suddenly disappeared.
"I…" I didn't know what to say and just looked at Godric with what must have been a scared expression, because he quickly went outside and looked to see if anyone was hiding out there. "Godric, get back."
My voice sounded weak and quiet, but he'd heard me and hurried back inside to me, locking the door behind him even though a door probably wouldn't stop Russell from getting inside if he was somehow invited inside by Godric.
"Sara, who was it?" he asked, hands placed on my shoulders.
"Russell." was all I could answer.
Godric's jaw tensed up and he looked like he was ready to rip someone's heart out – preferably Russell's heart. I sighed heavily and embraced him, wishing so badly that my brief meeting with Russell hadn't been real.
We'd just come home after stopping that witch and now a new and much bigger problem had reappeared. I felt like screaming out of frustration, but Godric somehow managed to soothe my rage by wrapping his arms around me as well.
"I won't let him get anywhere near you. I promise." he said.
I pulled away. "But we have to warn Eric. He killed Russell's progeny and now Russell probably wants revenge!" I said.
Godric nodded understandingly. "I'll call him. You go rest in the meantime. I don't want you to exhaust yourself."
I was too tired to argue with him, so I obeyed and went to bed while he made the call. I couldn't fall asleep at first, because I was too worried about Russell being back, but when Godric joined me in the bed I relaxed and fell asleep.
I still had nightmares, though, and this time it was one about Russell chasing me through the woods, wanting to kill me as payback for what Eric did. I also watched him as he killed Godric in the dream and when that happened, I woke up gasping and soaked in cold sweat.
"Bad dream?" Godric asked, putting a book he'd been reading away.
I nodded and looked at the clock. It was almost 4:00 AM, which meant that Godric was soon going to sleep too. I couldn't fall asleep again, though, so I tried tugged myself close to him and took a look at the book he'd been reading.
"I didn't know you liked The Last Werewolf… I mean, it doesn't strike me as a book someone like you would read, but then again – I don't even know what kind of music you like." I said.
Godric chuckled. "A friend of mine recommended it, actually, but I do enjoy reading it. The main character and I have a few things in common. But I don't know what music or books you enjoy either… what do you like reading?" he said.
"Mostly teen stuff like… Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick – gotta love Patch and Nora in it – and Dark Visions by L.J. Smith, but I've read The Last Werewolf too and a few other adult books."
Godric smiled weakly. "It is a shame that all of your belongings are still at your old home, but perhaps I could send someone to get them for you…"
"You would? Thank you! I miss my things and–"
I suddenly realized something. "Did you call my mom too? What if Russell knows about her? Godric, I can't let him–"
"Calm down, Sara. Yes, I did call and warn your mother. Xavier said he would protect her and make sure no one will hurt her."
I sighed in relief and relaxed, but I was still worried about everyone's safety. "I understand your concern about Russell, but I don't want you to worry about anything right now. Wasn't that why you wanted to come here?"
"It was, but…"
"No, buts. I'm grounding you."
I raised an eyebrow. "You can't ground me! You're not my father and even my real father can't ground me without getting a fight in return!"
"Will you listen to me if I give you something?"
I became curious at that. "That depends… what is it?"
He smirked. "Close your eyes and count to 10."
I shook my head of him, but closed my eyes and began counting to 10, wondering what on earth he had for me. As I reached 10 and opened my eyes again, I gasped at the sight of what was in front of me. I couldn't believe that he'd really bought me an…
It was a three-stoned silver diamond ring with a beautiful floret design on its sides that made it look like it was made in the Victorian age. I was so speechless that I didn't say anything for what felt like hours and just stared at the small box's content.
"I'm hoping you like it," Godric said, breaking the silence. "If not then I will find–"
I shook my head and took the box, finally moving my gaze up to his eyes. "I love it, Godric. It's just… I never expected you to buy me an actual engagement ring."
Godric smiled and took the ring out, placing it on the proper finger. It fit perfectly, but it looked so weird to see such an expensive-looking ring on my hand.
"I need to call my mom! She'll faint when she hears this!" I said, smiling brightly.
He opened his mouth to say something, but I'd already left the bedroom and gone to call my mom. I mentally reminded myself to reward him later, which I was sure he would be thrilled about.
It took a little time for my mom to answer, but when she did she answered with a yawn. "Well, good morning to you too, mom!" I said teasingly.
"Sara? Why are you calling this early? You're not pregnant, are you?" she asked.
I frowned and sighed. "No, mom. I'm not pregnant. I don't think that's even possible when I'm dating a vampire. But I promise you that this is worth it. Godric asked me to marry him and I said yes plus he gave me the most beautiful ring I've ever seen!"
"Godric asked you to marry him? But weren't you with Eric?"
Oh yeah… I'd completely forgotten to tell her about what had happened in the last couple of weeks. "I did, but I realized that I loved Godric the most and we've moved in together in his home in Dallas, which means that I'll be closer to you too."
"That's nice to hear, but you should've called me way earlier! I want to know what's going on in my daughter's love life. But congratulations with the engagement! I wish that Godric would've asked me first since he can't exactly ask your father, but I trust Godric and know that he's a good young man."
I smiled. "I know and I'm sorry. I promise I'll visit you soon and then you can see my ring. I'll let you sleep now, but I just wanted to let you know."
"It's okay, sweetie. Stay out of trouble and… you know what? Just go back to your fiancé and spend some time with him. I know you're unable to stay out of trouble."
I blushed a little, but hung up and went back to Godric, who'd gone back to reading his book. I took his book and placed it on his nightstand, then crawled up on his lap. I wanted to tell him how much I loved him and that I was grateful of the gift, but I had a feeling that he already knew that, so I kissed him passionately instead and showed him how I felt.
My clothes came off quicker than I expected, but so did Godric's and I felt his lips exploring every inch of my body, sending shivers of pleasure through it.
I hated that whenever I made love with Godric, then he was able to make me lose control of my inhibitions, but this was what I needed and what I wanted.
Even as my Nix teeth were aching to come out he didn't stop me, but let me bite him as he'd bit me and I drank straight from his strong life force. It tasted so good that I nearly couldn't let go of him and in the end Godric had to pull me away, but he didn't seem to mind it.
"Remind me to buy you jewelries more often…" he said as we lay next to each other, me feeling way more exhausted than Godric probably was right now.
"Ha-ha, very funny! Don't get used to this sort of treatment," I said. "But about us getting married and all that… do I become a vampire or what?"
Godric sighed. I guessed that he'd dreaded that question for a long time, but even though the thought of becoming a vampire sounded cool, then I didn't know if I wanted to live forever, being forced to sleep during the day and never being able to have children of my own.
Most importantly: would my Nix side affect the vampire side?
"I don't want to turn you, because I think you should enjoy your humanity for as long as you can, but the thought of watching you die…"
"Let's wait to after the wedding before we make a decision like that. It's freaky enough that I'm actually marrying a vampire. How are we even going to do that? We can't exactly have a normal wedding and I'm sure my father will have something to say in the matter."
Godric smiled. "We'll find a way to make it work and when the night comes I promise that it will be a night you will never forget."
I giggled. "I wonder why that is…"
He chuckled and shook his head of me. "I think you have had too much of my life force…"
"No! No way! You can never have enough life force."
He raised an eyebrow. "Now I definitely know that you're drunk."
"I'm not drunk! God, you're a really annoying fiancé."
Godric laughed and as much as I loved hearing him laugh, then he was being pretty annoying right now (just kidding – I still love him!).
"Perhaps it is time for both of us to go to bed, yes?"
I nodded. "And if you make me breakfast later, then I may forgive you for that comment. Night!"
He kissed me on my forehead and pulled me close to him, making it impossible for me to act like I was mad at him when I wasn't.
But as I fell asleep I began dreaming something unusual that didn't feel like a dream at first, but more like a memory of sorts. It wasn't any of my memories, so I guessed it belonged to Godric.
Godric looked around in the destroyed house, just looking at the remains of what used to be humans and vampires. A few feet away he spotted Eric lying on the floor and a moment of realization hit him.
He almost died.
His progeny almost died.
And now three vampires and two human companions were dead.
As the other remaining vampires left the house and left him alone with Eric. I felt myself walking towards him, but when he looked up it was as if he was looking right through me.
I took a look around the house as well and saw how badly the bombing had been – the bombing that eventually made him lose his position and his wish to live.
No wonder he had felt so guilty about it. There was so much blood everywhere and body parts lying all over the floor…
"Godric." I said, trying to get his attention.
He finally looked at me and it pained me to see so much sadness and remorse in his eyes. I sighed and looked at Eric, who was covered in blood and felt my heart skip a beat at the sight of him.
How was he still able to make me feel that way?
I was engaged to Godric – not Eric – and loved him.
"Why are you thinking about him?" Godric asked. "You said you love me."
"I do, Godric! I–"
"Then why can't you stop thinking about me?" Eric asked.
I didn't know what to say, but when I opened my mouth to speak I suddenly saw Russell appear in the dream. He grabbed the broken leg of a chair and staked Godric before I could stop him, making me wake up gasping from the dream…
"Godric!" I called out, looking around, but Godric was nowhere to be seen.
I was completely alone in the house.
Thanks for reading and please review! ;D
