What is this? She updated twice in one month?! What kind of sorcery is this?

Thanks to all those that reviewed!

Guest: Thanks for thinking it's awesome.

suzi1811: It seems you always know what to say! Anyways thanks for reviewing. I wanted Jackie and Gage to be incorporated into Derek's life without completely taking Kit out of the picture. Jackie and Gage will be helping out a lot in the sequel. As to how... you'll just have to wait to find out. Thanks for beta'ing.

DragonLadyWarrior: They say junior year is the toughest of all the years. Well at least they say that at my school. I signed up for a couple AP classes for next year and can't wait to get started! Thanks for reviewing!

ChloeXDerekDP: Thanks for reviewing! There will be plenty more to come! Maybe not in this story, but in the next story there will be!

The M scene will be marked for people who don't want to read that part of the story. Please keep in mind I am only sixteen and have no idea how to write that kind of thing nor have I partaken in said activity. So I'm sorry in advance if it doesn't meet your standards. :)

Disclaimer: I don't own the Darkest Powers trilogy. All that goes to the wonderful Kelley Armstrong for bringing us Derek. ;)

Chloe's POV

I took a deep breath and I tried to calm my nerves. I shook my head as I saw the bra and panties set Tori wanted me to wear. "I can't wear this!"

Said garments that I was wearing was a sheer black bra and panties set that had a little hot pink bow in between the breasts and on top of the underwear. Tori rolled her eyes at my behavior. "You'll be fine. Here's your clothes."

The clothes weren't overly fancy nor were they very casual. The dress she wanted me to wear was a dark navy blue with little white flower pattern on it. I had a gray cardigan to go over the dress. To complete the look I had a thin tan leather belt and black ballet flats with the necklace my mother gave me which was the same blue as the dress. (I can't remember what color it was. I think it was blue.)

After I was done getting dressed, Tori set to work on my hair and make-up. The red hair dye had washed out of my hair quite some time ago and it was now the strawberry blonde I was born with. She styled my hair in loose curls then ran a brush through it to make it soft and shiny. She clipped a strand of hair to the side. She put on light beige eye-shadow and black eyeliner to enhance my blue eyes and she put on a light coat of mascara.

"There," Tori said, clapping her hands together. "You're perfect."

I didn't say anything as I cast an uneasy glance towards the clock: it read 6:42 p.m. Our dinner reservations were for 7:30.

We decided to keep it simple this time. We were heading to Aurora for dinner at Basil's Greek Dining, then Derek said he had a surprise for me before we went to the Hampton Inn for, err . . . .special night.

I took a deep breath and turned to Tori. "Okay, I'm ready."

She winked. "Atta, girl."

We started our trek to the living room where Derek could be heard talking to Simon. I quickly turned around to go and hide in my room only to run into Tori.

She grabbed my shoulders. "What's going on, Chloe? You were just fine a minute ago."

"I know, I know. I'm just so n-nervous that I'm g-going to mess up." I cursed the stutter that plagued me.

"Chloe, it's expected of you to feel nervous. Derek is just as nervous as you."

I cast a look down the stairs to Derek who was mock wrestling with Simon with Kit as the referee. "He doesn't seem nervous."

"Guys are just better at hiding their emotions than girls are. He's probably nervous as hell on the inside. And how the hell would you know if you messed up or not? You're both virgins to the best of my knowledge and this is you're first relationship. It's all about experimenting on what you like and don't like. And if you sill get nervous, you can just tell him to stop. You know he would never hurt you."

I nodded. "You're right."

Tori gave a very unlady like snort. "Of course I am. I'm always right."

I smiled and gave her a hug.

I walked down the rest of the hall and down the stairs.

Derek looked up the stairs as he had Simon in a headlock. Simon was puling with all his might and Derek released him. I faintly heard Simon say 'Ow!', but my attention was on Derek who had walked to the bottom of the stairs and stared up at me.

I grabbed Derek's outstretched hand and he kissed it.

"You look beautiful, Chloe." He said.

I smiled and blushed. "Thank you. You look pretty handsome yourself." And he was. He had on a black suit with a white button up shirt with the the first button undone with no tie.

"How come you don't have a tie?"

"I don't like wearing them. I feel like I'm being choked."

I nodded and then Simon spoke. This can't be good.

"That and he just doesn't want to be tied to the bed." He smiled at Derek and clapped him on the shoulder. "Right, D?"

I blushed a furious red and Derek smiled a not-so-nice smile. "Simon," he said. "Have I ever told you I always enjoy you butting into things that are none of you concern?" He clapped Simon on the shoulder, though unlike Simon, he started squeezing until Simon's knees started to go weak.

"Derek!" He squeaked. "You're hurting me! Derek! Stop it! Dad!"

Kit shook his head and let out a chuckle. "You pick your own battles, Simon."

"I don't even know what that means!"

He chuckled again and grabbed a set of keys. "I'm going to the grocery store to restock our supplies." He shot Derek and I a look. "Have fun you two."

If even possible I blushed an even brighter red and even Derek a had a light pink tint to his cheeks.

"Bye Dad!"

"Bye Kit!"

He smiled again and left out the door.

I looked back to Simon who wore a look of pain on his face.

I intervened. "Come on, Derek. You can dislocate his shoulder another night. We're gonna be late."

Derek looked down to Simon. "You're lucky." And released him.

Simon collapsed to the floor and rubbed his shoulder. "You know what else a tie is good for?" He looked at Derek. "A col-"

"Okay! Before Derek ends up strangling you, I'm going to step in." Came a new voice.

I looked to the door. "Kenzie? What are you doing here?"

"To keep Simon in check while you guys are away." She said as she hung up her jacket and helped Simon to his feet.

"You're saying my dad doesn't trust me?" Simon pouted.

"He trusts you . . ." She trailed off.

"Just not enough to be left alone with Tori." I finished, giggling.

Derek started tugging me towards the door and Simon said, "So basically he sent my girlfriend to babysit me to make sure Tori and I don't destroy the house."

Kenzie put a hand to his face. "Yeah." She said it in a way you would talk to a child.

"Bye!" I shouted as we were almost out the door.

"Have-" Simon never got to finish what he was saying for Derek slammed the door shut before he could.

I could see the scowl on his face as he climbed into the truck and started driving to Aurora.

"Derek." I whined. "This is supposed to be our special night. It's not going to be very special if you're grumpy."

His face softened as he looked at me and grabbed my hand. "I know, I know, I'm sorry. It's just Simon and his teasing."

I squeezed his hand. "Yeah but it's Simon. You should expect this from him." I took off my seat-belt and snuggled into Derek's chest. Derek released my hand only to wrap his arm around my shoulders. "Besides I think he's just jealous."

Derek raises his eyebrows in question. "Why would Simon be jealous of me?"

I smiled. "Your relationship can actually last more than three months."

Derek let out a laugh. "Yeah that's probably it."

I rested my head on his shoulder. "Now about this surprise?"

Derek smiled and shook his head. "Not a chance."

I pouted.

Derek's POV

I pulled into Basil's Greek Dining and turned the car off. I snuck a peek at Chloe when she was messing around with her hair in the mirror. She looked so beautiful tonight and I still couldn't believe she was here with me. I could just imagine what she would look like undern-

Stop making me see things like that! Not during dinner. I scolded Rafe. I felt blood rush to a certain part of my body that I would be using later.

Oh don't be such a prude, kid. It's best you get it all out of your system now because after tonight, your life is going to be hell for the following month.

I rolled my eyes. He was constantly reminding me that after we have sex tonight we can't have sex again until the ceremony the following month.

Why do we have to wait a month after?

I don't make the rules, kid. All I have to do is make sure you follow them.

I still think it's stupid.

So you don't want to make Chloe your mate?

Stop putting words into my mouth! I love Chloe more than anything else in this world. I didn't say the idea that making Chloe my mate was stupid. I think the idea of waiting a month until the ceremony to have sex again is stupid.

Ease up, kid. I was only messing with you.


"-to go in?" Chloe finished saying.

"What?" I asked stupidly.

She gave me a confused look. "I said 'Are we going to go in?'"

I cursed myself. I was so busy paying attention to Rafe that I was ignoring Chloe. I cleared my throat. "Um, yeah. Let's head in."

Chloe gave me a soft smile. "Derek we don't have to do this tonight if you're that nervous."

My hands shot out and grabbed hers. "No!" I said quickly. "I'm not nervous, I was just thinking. I mean of course I'm nervous, but who wouldn't be? I mean it's not everyday someone get's a foreign object shoved into them."

Chloe raised her eyebrows and I just realized my poor choice of words. I slammed my forehead onto the steering wheel. "Why did I say that?"

I'm asking myself that same question.

Shut it!

Rafe let out a chortle and receded into the back of my mind.

I tuned back into Chloe who was busy giggling uncontrollably.

I scowled. "Stop laughing."

She cleared her throat. "I'm sorry, Der. It's just that I'm glad I'm not the only one who's nervous."

I looked at her through my hair. It was getting a little too long for my liking and I would have to get it cut soon. "You're nervous, too?

She brushed the hair back from my forehead so she could look me in the eye. "Yes, I am. But it's not a bad nervous, it's a good nervous. I'm also excited."

I smiled and pecked her on the lips. "Good."

"I mean it's not every day that I get a foreign object shoved into me." She repeated me.


She laughed again. "Okay, okay, I'm done. No more."

I gave her a look. "You promise?"

She raised her right hand. "I solemnly swear to never bring this up again."

I rolled my eyes, knowing fully well she wouldn't keep that promise. I climbed out my door and went to open hers. I raised my hand. "Miss Saunders."

She took my outstretched hand. "Thank you, Mr. Souza."

We walked in and I gave my name to the waiter. "Souza"

"Right this way, sir." Our waiter, Jeff, led us to the more secluded tables in the back of the restaurant.

After we were seated, Jeff asked "Can I get you something to drink?"

"I'll just take a water, thank you." Chloe said.

"Me too."

"Very well." Jeff said and handed us our menus. "I'll be back in a few minutes for your orders."

When Jeff left I asked her. "How are things going with your dad?"

Jeff came back with our waters and she took a sip. "Things are going good. I mean I haven't seen him since he left, but we've kept in contact. He says he plans on visiting sometime within the next month." She gave me a smile. "He also wanted me to tell you and I quote 'If you ever hurt my little girl, I will find you myself and make your life a living hell'"

I rolled my eyes, I was pretty confident that I could handle Steve. Though I still have to give him credit for trying to scare me. "I'm trembling."

She gave a slight chuckle. "Speaking of parental progress, how are things going with Jackie and Gage?"

"Things are going pretty well. I've learned more about how they met and their life with the pack and who's all in it. They've been travelling back and forth between here and New York. They said they plan on looking for an apartment to live in so they don't have to spend so much on airfare." I took a deep breath. "And I also found out the truth about Tyler."

Chloe looked up from skimming her menu. "How are you and Tyler?"

"Well let's just say I don't have the urge to rip his head off whenever I think about him."

She gave me a sympathetic smile. "Well I'm glad you're getting along."

"I didn't say I was getting along with him. I just don't have the urge to kill him."

"Well then I'd say that's a big leap in progress." She held her glass up for me to clink.

I touched my glass with hers and Jeff came back to take our orders.

"Um, I'll take the Mediterranean Pork Chops." I said.

"I'll take the Pastichio." Chloe said.

"Excellent choices. I'll be right back with your orders."

After he left we just talked about everyday things. Soon enough our food came out and we ate and the evening went by uneventful.

When we were getting ready to leave I made sure to leave a tip for Jeff and then we were on our way for Chloe's surprise.

Chloe's POV

You could say I was more than a little surprised when we pulled up into the movie theater.

"Um, Derek?" I asked. "What are we doing here?"

He looked over to me and said, "This is your surprise."

I gave the movie theater a quick glance over. It was nothing special, just a normal movie theater. "What could possibly be surprising about a movie theater?"

He didn't answer me, instead he left and opened my door for me and we walked inside. When we reached the ticket counter I was surprised to find Tori's boyfriend, Gabriel, working the stand.

"Ah! There you are." He said when he saw us.

Derek nodded his head in greeting. "Everything set?"

Gabriel nodded. "Yep, just go right on into theater 2. Your snacks are already in there and I'll play the reel once you get situated."


I looked at Derek incredulously. "A movie? That's the big surprise you kept from me?" I didn't mean to sound snooty, but if this was his idea of a romantic date then he had another thing coming.

Derek wrapped his arm around me and said, "Don't give me that look Chloe. It's not just any movie."

"Well what movie is it?"

"You'll see when we get in there."

I rolled my eyes but otherwise let him lead me to our seats and as soon as we sat down the opening credit opened up to the old time movie I was dying to see.

I shot Derek a disbelieving look and might I add he seemed pretty proud of himself. "Pillow Talk? How on earth did you find this movie? I have been dying to see it."

Derek smiled. "I know you have. So I looked around to see if anybody had a film reel of it. Sadly nobody had any idea on where to find one. I told Jackie and Gage about my predicament and Jackie said she thought Parker had a copy of it laying around. Sure enough he did and he lent it to us, but I had to give it back because it's my grandma's favorite movie."

I smiled and gave him a kiss. "That's so sweet of you." Little did anybody know I had a thing for old time movies and Pillow Talk was one of the ones I wanted to see. I looked everywhere for a copy of it but I could never find it.

Soon the movie started, though I was a little ashamed of myself because I was only half paying attention to the movie for I was acutely aware of Derek's hand the whole time. At first he started off with just rubbing my arm up and down for a few minutes. Then he slowly lowered his hand to my waist and and started to massage the area.

He then decided to get a little frisky because he moved his hand to the inner part of my thigh and he ran his fingers almost to the top of my thigh and all the way to the bottom of my knee.

I bit my lip to prevent myself from moaning out loud. He did that for a couple more minutes then he stopped. I sighed in relief and focused my attention back to the movie. Though luck wasn't always on my side for Derek shifted in his seat started kissing my neck. I groaned in frustration and pleasure.

His hand came up and pushed down the top of the cardigan and started trailing kisses from my neck to my shoulder and back up again.

"Derek!" I moaned. "I'm trying to watch the movie."

"Well," he said. "I personally think the movie is stupid and I'm bored." He then continued his assault on my neck.

I gave one last attempt to persuade him. "This movie is not stupid! It's a romantic comedy about the romance of a man and woman. It's a classic and it brought in almost 19 million dollars in the late 1950's."

"Hm." Derek said, "I can think of some more fun and pleasurable things to be doing."

I almost gave into temptation but I kept my resolve strong and watched the movie the rest of the way through. Throughout the rest of the movie Derek kept up with his advances that went from kissing my neck to rubbing his hand across my thighs.

When the movie finally ended I all but dragged Derek from the theater and to his truck. When we reached it Derek picked me up and put my back to the door of the truck and kissed me with a passion. When it ended, we were both out of breath and Derek's hands had a tight grip on the back of my thighs.

"Um" Derek said in a tight voice. "We should probably go to the hotel if we're going to continue."

I nodded my head in agreement.

Derek's POV

We reached the hotel in record time and we rushed to the reception area. The guy manning it gave us a knowing look and gave us the key card and directed us to the elevators.

*****Start of M Scene*****

I slid the key card into the slot and pulled Chloe in with me. I closed the door and pushed Chloe into it and attacked her lips. I don't think I could ever get enough of her. I lowered my head to kiss her neck and she moved her head up so I could have better access. She threaded her fingers into my hair and let out a breathless moan. She slid my jacket out over my shoulders and unbuttoned my shirt, meanwhile I pushed off her cardigan.

I picked her up and positioned her onto the bed. She ran her hands down my chest and I sighed in contentment. I pulled my shirt off and threw it somewhere in the room.

I flipped us over so that I was on the bottom and Chloe was straddling me. I bunched up her dress and pushed it over her head and threw it onto the floor.

Chloe let out a chortle. "Not so nervous now, are you?"

"Instincts." I said as I thrust upward and Chloe gasped in surprise. She leaned down to kiss me again and her tiny hands started working the belt. She managed to undo my belt but when it came to taking off my pants she got frustrated because they wouldn't slide down.

I lifted myself up a little and pulled my pants off. There was a surprise gasp from Chloe and I looked over at her. She was looking down and she had a pink tint to her cheeks. I looked down myself and there was a tent forming in my boxers.

"Chloe," I started off. "We . . ."

She attacked my lips with more force than I thought was possible from her. When she pulled away her lips were bruised and she had lust in her eyes.

I gulped as I saw her hands travel behind her back and unhook her bra. I let out a moan as I saw her without a bra for the first time, you could say I was more than a little happy. I tentatively reached out and grabbed them in my hands and gave a slight squeeze. Chloe let out a moan and kissed me again as I fondled her breasts.

I rolled us over again so that I was on top. I then proceeded to take one of Chloe's breasts into my mouth and I massaged the other one with my hand.

"Derek!" Chloe gasped and her hand to flew up the back of my head. I pulled away after a few moments and my hands trailed to the top of her underwear and I looked up for permission. She nodded her head and I slowly slid them down to the bottom of her feet and threw it in with the rest of our clothes. I did the same thing for my boxers.

I slipped on the condom and positioned myself at her entrance and stilled. I looked her in the eye. "Last chance, Chloe."

She nodded her head for me to continue. I grabbed her chin in a kiss and thrust into her. She let out a whimper at the pain and I stilled to let her adjust. When she nodded her head, I moved in and out at a slow pace. I wanted to go faster but I wasn't going to force her into anything she didn't want to do.

"D-Derek." She stuttered after a few minutes.

"Do you want me to stop?" I secretly hoped that wasn't the case.

She shook her head. "No, don't stop. Go faster."

I smiled at her shyness and moved at a faster pace much to my delight. With each thrust, Chloe's face became less tense and more relaxed. Her moans weren't filled with pain anymore but with pleasure. I grunted as I felt her walls start to contract.

She flipped us over so that she was on top and then she started to ride me. I latched onto her right breast and started sucking while my left hand massaged her other one. Her moans were getting louder and I could tell she was getting close to her climax. I felt her walls clamping down harder and I flipped us over again and quickened my pace so we could come together.

"Derek!" She breathed. "I'm so close."

I grunted. "I know, sweetheart. Let it go."

Chloe fell apart, the two of coming together.



*****End of M Scene*****

But after that there was a bright flash and a very pleasurable sensation much stronger than the orgasm I just had. I looked over at Chloe and knew she was experiencing it too. I felt a crawling sensation running down my left shoulder and I looked down. There on my shoulder was an intricate pattern with a while bunch of swirls intertwined and it ended to my chest. I looked to Chloe and she had the same thing.

I told you this a couple months ago, kid. Don't you remember?


I collapsed, careful not to crush her with my full weight and took in a couple of deep breaths. I managed to lift myself up and brushed the hair away from Chloe's face. "Are you okay?"

She gave a breathless laugh. "I'm fantastic."

I smiled. "So it was good?"

She nodded her head and cuddled into my side. "It was great."

I nodded my head, content and rested against the pillow with Chloe's head on my chest.

We laid like that for a few moments before I felt a certain something perk up again. Chloe looked down and smiled.

"Want to go another round?"

"Do you have to ask?"

I smiled and we continued my new favorite activity for the better half of the night.

Chloe's POV

Today was the day The day the I am officially mated with Derek. Or as Tori liked to put it: my wedding day.

Though I had to admit, Tori knew her fashion. She put me into a knee-length light yellow dress. It had white lace flower pattern over it and it had a shiny black belt to go with it. I also had shiny black ballet flats and a necklace that had a heart with an arrow going through it.

For my hair, she put it in a small fish tail braid and pinned it to the side, she also curled my hair to perfection. As for make-up I had on pale yellow eye-shadow and eyeliner. She also put a coat of blush and mascara on.

"You look beautiful, Chloe." Kenzie said.

I smiled at her. "Thank you." Tori and Kenzie were technically my bridesmaids and of course Tori made herself maid of honor. Kenzie said she was perfectly okay with it. Their dresses were in ivory and they had a black ribbon tied of into a bow. The had black ballet flats like me except theirs had a bow on the end.

There was a knock at the door and Tori yelled. "Who is it?"

"It's me." My dad said. He flew all the way down here to walk me down the aisle. He even took off work for the day which I know caused him stress because he didn't like missing work. "I've been told to come and get you because we're starting soon."

Tori opened the door for my father. Her and Kenzie grabbed their bouquets, which were filled with white and light colored yellow roses, and left the room to give us some privacy.

Dad gave me a smile. "Chloe you look beautiful."

I smiled and went to give him a hug. "Thanks Dad."

His grip on me tightened as if he didn't want to let me go. He pulled away and looked me in the eye. "Now you listen to me Chloe, if he ever hurts you, just give me a call and I'll make sure to make his life a living hell."

I chuckled. "I don't think you'll have to worry about that, Dad. Derek would never hurt me."

He gave me another smile. "I know. I can tell by the way he looks at you. I just had to get one last threat in."

I shook my head and gave him another hug.

"I love you, Chloe." He whispered in my ear.

"I love you too, Daddy." I whispered back with tears in my eyes. His breath caught in his throat because I haven't called him that since Mom died. After a few minutes we pulled away and he gently wiped away the tears that escaped. "Hey now, none of that."

I carefully dried my eyes. I guess it was a good thing that Tori went with waterproof mascara. "I know. But it's normal for people to cry at events like this."

He smiled and offered me his arm. "Shall we?"

I nodded and grabbed his arm and we descended the stairs. When we reached the bottom we found Tori, Gabriel, Simon, Kenzie, and Sophia. When Simon saw me he got up and gave me a hug. "There's my new sister-in-law."

I smiled and hugged him back. I felt a tugging at my dress and looked down at Sophia.

"Chloe." She said in her adorable little girl voice. "You look really pretty."

I leaned down to her level. "But not as pretty as you." I poked her in the stomach.

She giggled. "Yeah I know."

I chuckled as I straightened. She was like a mini Tori.

"Alright." Tori said clapping her hands. "Let's get this show on the road."

Everybody took their positions. Sophia in the front since she was the flower girl. Tori followed behind her and she glared at Simon when he stepped beside her.

She growled. "What are you doing, idiot?"

Simon glared. "I don't like this either, witch. But since you're the maid of honor and I'm the best man we have to walk down the aisle together."

"So then..." She trailed off as she looked at Kenzie and Gabriel who stood behind them.

"It's only for a few minutes, honey." Gabriel reasoned. "Then you don't have to deal with him."

"Wow thanks Gabe." Simon said sarcastically.

Gabriel was about to fire back a retort when Kenzie interrupted.

"You guys!" She said exasperated. "This isn't about you! This is Chloe and Derek's day. So suck it up!"

Simon pouted but otherwise didn't comment and Tori reluctantly took his elbow.

"You ready?" Dad asked me.

I nodded and grasped his elbow tightly. Sophia started dropping flower petals, followed by Simon and Tori. They went a few steps and then Gabriel and Kenzie started walking, then it was Dad and I.

The whole ceremony was small, a total of eleven people in the audience. Kit, Dad, Aunt Lauren, Jackie, Gage, and Derek's grandmother Claire sat in the front row. A few people that Derek and I have come to know sat in the back row.

I faintly heard the song 'Mama's Song' by Carrie Underwood started playing. I couldn't help but imagine that my own mother was in heaven, looking down at this moment with a smile on her face.

I finally looked into Derek's eyes. He had a small smile on his face. His eyes showed all the love, joy, and happiness he felt for me. I'm pretty sure mine conveyed the same thing.

We finally reached the willow tree we were to be mated under. Dad placed my hand into Derek's and kissed my cheek, then took his seat in between Kit and Aunt Lauren. I looked up at Derek and he winked at me and I smiled back at him.

We faced Parker, Derek's grandfather, and he smiled warmly at us. The whole ceremony seemed to go by so fast, and before I knew what was happening, it was time to say the vows.

I turned to Tori for Derek's ring and she gave it to me. Derek turned to Simon for my ring. There was a moment of panic on Simon's face and he patted his pockets. Gabriel rolled his eyes and produced my ring and handed it to Simon, who gave it to Derek. Derek gave Simon a look and Simon looked to the floor with a guilty face.

Derek's ring was a simple silver ring that was the same color of his eyes when he changed and mine was had an emerald the same color as Derek's eyes as nestled in a circle of small diamonds.

Derek took my left hand and my ring hovered above my ring finger. "I, Derek, take you, Chloe, to be my mate, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the witnesses of my family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, and in joy as well as sorrow. I promise to love you, to honor and respect you, to laugh and cry with you, and to cherish you as long as we both shall live. I love you." He slid the ring on my finger.

Now it was my turn. I lifted the ring above his ring finger. "I, Chloe, take you, Derek, to be my mate, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the witnesses of my friends and family, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, and in joy as well as sorrow. I promise to love you, to honor and respect you, to laugh and cry with you, and to cherish you as long as we both shall live. I love you." I then slid the ring onto his ring finger.

"Do you Derek take Chloe to be your mate?"

"I do."

"Do you Chloe take Derek to be your mate?"

"I do."

"Then you may kiss your mate." Parker finished.

Derek slowly lifted his hands and cradled my face and kissed me gently. It showed all the love and tenderness we shared with each other. Everybody erupted into cheers and we slowly pulled away.

We walked down the aisle hand in hand as we started a new chapter in our life together.

Kit's POV

I was driving into town to pick up more food. When you have five werewolves in the house, you run out pretty fast.

I pulled into the local grocery store and there were only a few cars in the lot.

When I walked in I immediately froze. There was three men that were talking to the cashier and they were holding up pictures of me, Simon, Derek, Chloe and Tori.

I looked at the insignia on their jackets and I knew who they were.

The St. Clouds . . . . they'd found us.

Don't hate me! This is the last chapter of this story. The next story should be up in three months time, still don't have a name for it yet, so that's one thing I will be thinking of.

Please review this chapter, considering I only got four on the last one. I worked really hard on this chapter, especially since it got deleted on me and I had to rewrite it.

Anyways I want to thank all of you who favorited, followed, and reviewed this story. This story has been so fun to write and I thank you for that because you're reviews are what kept me going.

So thanks!

P.S. The outfits and rings are all posted as links on my profile, so take a gander.

Until next time!
