  3. My eyes are no good- blind without her,
The way she moves, I never doubt her.
When she talks, she somehow creeps into my dreams.
She’s a doll, a catch, a winner
I’m in love and no beginner;
Could ever grasp or understand just what she means. 

Chapter 7

Marie

The piercing morning sun shone in her window as she quickly threw on one of her favorite shirts and some jeans. She messily applied some eye liner and was off and out the door to her moms car. The silent ride to the school was peaceful and she stared into the forest looking for the magic she knew was there. 

“Hey, mom. Can I have my friends over tomorrow?” she asked convincingly.

“Yeah, absolutely honey! They can come over for sure! And Lauren will be at her friends house so you can even have all three of them. What’s their names? Tess, Brook and uh is it Casey?” her mom said a little bit too excitedly, like she was surprised her daughter had friends.

“Tess, Bridget, and Katy.” she replied quietly. They were nearing the school and she gathered her things.

“That’s right, have a good day at school today! Oh and don’t wait up for me tonight, I wont be home until about twelve.” her mom explained. They pulled up to the school and Marie stepped out of the car and waved goodbye as she walked to the legalized jail cell.

Marie trudged to her locker sleepily and swung open the door. She couldn’t seem to get away from the nightmare from last night that stalked her peace of mind. She breathed out heavily and leaned against the locker and dosed. Slowly, she realized there were arms around her, strong muscular arms that were familiar, Derek’s arms.

“Hi.” she said as she turned and wrapped her arms around his back and leaned on his chest.

“Good morning sleepy head.” Derek almost laughed.

“I’m just tired. Big paper.” she answered, which was partially true, but it wasn’t exactly the paper keeping her up. She laced her fingers through Derek’s and they walked down the hall as people turned their heads and whispered. “Hey uh, so I’m just curious, no pressure or anything, but what are we exactly? I’ve had some people ask me and I don’t want to tell them I’m your girlfriend if I’m not.” she asked, hoping he wouldn’t try to bolt.

Derek looked at the floor with a grin stretched across his face and began. “You’re cute when you’re nervous.” he said, giving her hand a little squeeze. “Um, I would like it if you were my girlfriend.” he admitted, causing her to blush a little and smile. 

“Ok.” she said as she stopped next to her third hour and wrapped her arms around his neck. She noticed each jealous scowl walk past her and decided she should really give them something to be jealous about. She looked up into his eyes -god those eyes- and down to his lips. She was still aware of every stare as she leaned forward and kissed him, kissed him like she hadn’t before. She felt the warmth start in her stomach and she felt his smooth lips, scalding on top of hers. She leaned back and smirked.

“Happy Thursday.” Derek said, pressing his forehead to hers.

“Why is this a happy Thursday?” She mumbled into his shoulder.

“Only one more day til Friday?” Derek replied, looking for an answer.

“Hmm.” She playfully whined as she nuzzled into his chest. She loved his chest, everything about it drove her crazy. “I,” she breathed, needing to catch her breath, “Will see you later.” She said as she sashayed into the classroom in a hormone clouded haze. She plopped into her seat and sighed. She hadn’t noticed a rather prudish thin girl walking towards her before it was too late to whip out her book and pretend to be busy. The girl stepped in front of her desk and looked down at her with a sneer.

“Yes?” Marie asked with a sweet sarcasm.

“So are you and Derek, Derek Hale, like together?” the girl interrogated in an irritating nasally voice. 

“Well, I’m not his hooker, and I was kissing him in the hall way, so yes, I’d say so.” she answered with more venom then she’d intended.

“Oh, well, you know his relationships never last.” the girl spat. Marie adjusted herself so she was taller in her seat. She looked at her obviously envious classmate and smiled.

“Well, it’s a good thing I could care less about his past.” Marie replied with confidence. 

“Hmft. He probably just wants to have sex with you anyway.” the girl declared as she turned to leave. It was not ending like this, not if she had anything to do with it. What could she say? She wanted to shock her, and her group of friends waiting to hear what happened.

“Maybe I wanna have sex. It’s pretty good, not that you‘d know. No body trying to get in those pants.” she said tauntingly, the last bit under her breath. She saw the girl go stiff and keep walking, good thing she didn’t know she was a virgin. She kinda had a feeling that status might end soon anyways. She looked at Katy, who looked back time to hear the last comment, and started laughing. Only a few minutes later she heard the promising gasps from across the room and couldn’t help the scoff that fell from her lips. 

At lunch Marie, Tess, Katy, and Bridget all sat at a booth tucked in the back of the cafeteria and picked at the school food.

“So, what are you guys doing for spring break?” she asked, wondering if anyone else was stuck in Beacon Hills.

“I’m visiting my family in Utah, should be fun, me and my four siblings and my parents in our car for god knows how long.” Katy laughed. 

“I’m going to see my dad, and his dog. While my mom and her boyfriend go to Mexico, again. It will be thrilling.” Bridget said, her words oozing sarcasm.

“That sucks, sorry Brig. Well I think we are going to San Diego, but I’m not sure. We could be going somewhere closer.” Tess added.

“Hmm. So I’m the only one stuck here?” she said, rather deflated.

“Yep.” Her friends each said with a smile. 

“Hey, are you guys busy this weekend?” she asked. 

“Nope.” Bridget replied.

“I don’t think so.” Katy added.

“I’m not, why?” Tess said, curiosity evident in her voice.

“Well, my little sister is going to be at her friends house and we will have enough room for all of you guys to be over. Do you guys wanna come?” Marie asked, hoping for some takers and not wanting to be alone. Tess grinned and looked at Katy and Bridget.

“Oh my god this is going to be amazing!” Tess almost squealed. Marie got up to throw away her trash and start for her next class and was followed by the three. She walked with them down the hall as they talked about the sleep over.

“Katy, you should bring all your nail polish.” Tess suggested enthusiastically. 

“All of it?” Katy replied skeptically.

“Ok, not all of it.” Tess answered.

“Bridget, could you bring Interview with a Vampire?” Katy questioned.

“Of course.” Bridget said, looking at her phone as if her life depended on it. Marie smiled and laughed, enjoying their excitement. 

“Ok, my mom said you could come over at around six. Is that cool?” she clarified as she stepped into her 5th hour. 

“Perfect.” Katy chirped with a thumbs up.

“No prob.” Bridget replied.

“Cool!” Tess shouted as the trio got further down the hall. She turned into her fifth hour and took her seat. She reached into her pocket to look at her phone and saw she had one message, a voicemail.
Weird, the number was blocked, the curiosity ate at her and she decided to listen to it in the bathroom. Once she had made it past the teacher and was finally in the bathroom she dialed her voice mail and waited. The electronic woman introduced the message and she waited in suspense. Finally the message played itself.

“Uh, hey Marie. Its Jacob.” said a deep gravelly voice. “I wanted to talk about what happened with us. You just disappeared. Call me back.” She stood there, frozen, as unwelcome memories flooded her mind. Who did he think he was calling her, talking to her. What a dumb ass, he called on a restricted number! Not that she would fucking call him back anyways! She didn’t have time for this, she had to get back to class, only two more hours until she saw Derek. Derek! What would he think of her if he knew…knew about her dad, about her?

~~~

Derek

Sixth hour finally rolled around and  he leaped out of his seat and practically ran out the door and down the hall towards Marie’s soft kiss. Every one of her kisses had been soft until today, that is exactly what had him excited. The kiss from this morning was filled with desire and passion and he wanted it again. 

“Hey.” He said as he grabbed her hand.

“Hi.” Marie replied. He looked down and couldn’t help but think about how beautiful she was. She was wearing a teal shirt that was tight at her waist and flowed down to her hips with dark jeans and flats. He liked how tall she was, tall enough so he didn’t have to bend down to kiss her, which was convenient. He took the books from her hands as they walked out the door together.

“What time am I coming to hangout?” he asked, completely thrilled they were going to have the house all to themselves for as long as he could stay.

“Is around five ok? I can make dinner.” Marie answered.

“As you wish.” he whispered into her ear. He followed her to his truck and weaved through the back roads to her house. He stopped next to her mailbox and hopped out to open the door for her. When he got around to the side he took her by the waist and lowered her to the ground, even though she obviously didn’t need the help. He could tell by the way her heart quickened that she liked that… a lot. He decided to give her a little taste of what he was sure to happen later that day. He looked down into her eyes, her eyes that he swore held secrets he could know with time. He pressed his lips and his body to hers and grabbed her waist pulling her closer. He could tell he was squeezing too hard, but she didn’t seem to feel the pain, or she didn’t mind. With his other hand he pressed his thumb to her hip and massaged there. Knowing it had to be driving her crazy, he decided it was the perfect time to leave her wanting more. He leaned back and smiled and kissed her nose before grabbing her books and walking to the door. He turned back to see a clearly disappointed Marie and chuckled. “What?” he asked, playing innocent.

“Hmmm,” Marie groaned, she eyed him knowingly, which excited him more. “Nothing…” Marie opened the front door and grabbed her books. He turned to leave, but heard the door open again so he turned to see Marie’s face sticking out from the house.

“Yes?” he inquired. 

“Just… come prepared.” Marie grinned and snuck back in the house before he could laugh. There was no way he was coming un-prepared. He drove home and began on the chores that were his only barrier between him and Marie at the moment. He shifted through the laundry and after that was done he loaded the dish washer and finally he cleaned his room and he was off. He launched down the stairs to freedom but only feet from the door was rained in by the voice of none other then his dad.

“Where you going?” said a deep monotone full of authority.

“To Josh‘s, remember? You and mom said I could go hangout tonight?” he replied. He pleaded with what ever god was listening that his dad wouldn’t change his mind, please, please, please. His father took a couple menacing steps closer to him and looked as serious as he’d seen him in a while. His dad slowly reached into his pocket, looked around to make sure there were no witnesses, and pulled out a condom. 

“I know you’re not going to Josh’s.” He looked at his dad, slightly shocked, and took the condom without hesitation. “Don’t tell your mom.” His dad added in a hushed tone as he walked away. Derek didn’t say a word, but headed straight for the truck and then to Marie’s house. He pulled up and walked to the door, the anticipation burning inside of him, screaming for an escape, and waited for Marie. After what felt like forever she answered the door.

“Hey.” Marie said with a grin as she let him in the house.

“Hi.” he answered nervously. He stepped in and took her into his arms, kissing her forehead. He hadn’t noticed before, but now that he could breathe again, it felt almost as if the time he’d been away from her he’d been…holding his breath? Weird… He gave a squeeze and reluctantly released her. “What do you wanna do?” he asked, hoping she didn’t think he meant sex, oh god, the condom, he hoped she didn’t see it. How would she see it? He felt like he was going crazy! Why did he care? Sex with Kate wasn’t this big of deal, was it? No, couldn’t be.

“Um, you pick a movie while I make grilled cheeses.” Marie answered as she lead him to the living room.

“Sure, let me see what you have.” he answered as he walked to a large black book case lined with DVDs. She had a pretty big selection, he looked for an old childhood favorite, something they didn’t still have lying around his house. “Do you like robin hood?” he wondered aloud as he flashed her the front cover of the personified foxes. Marie stood in the kitchen, pan in hand, and smiled. 

“Yeah, I love that movie, put it in.” Marie directed from the kitchen. He walked to the DVD player and popped it in after turning the TV on. After a couple of minutes Marie curled up on the couch next to him and handed him a plate. He sat next to her on the couch and put his arm around her. The movie started and as more time went by he had a harder and harder time focusing on the movie and not on her. God, he loved being this close to her. She was intoxicating, every part of her, her smile, her laugh, her skin, her striking beauty, her smell. She smelled better then anything before, like sugar cookies and cinnamon. The way her dirty blond hair waved perfectly made him want to touch her, but softly, he didn’t want to taint her, he wanted her to stay so perfect. 

He looked back to the TV screen to see Robin hood put a ring on maid Marian and lead her through the waterfall. He looked back to Marie and smiled. She jerked her head over and her eyes crinkled with her grin.

“What? What is it?” Marie questioned. 

“I can’t watch the movie,” he started. She looked at him, obviously confused, and he brought his other arm around and slid it under her jaw and brought her forehead to his. “you’re so beautiful, I don’t dare look away.” he softly whispered. As he finished his words he could feel the air catch fire and he could practically smell the desire. Marie brought her eyes to his, her long lashes framing them perfectly, and he could feel it then. He felt her looking past all his secrets and walls, down straight to his very core. He was terrified, what if she didn’t like what she saw? What if she got a glimpse of the danger that laid behind his humanity? A glimpse of something she would never love. It was then he realized he was falling for her, really truly falling. 

Marie’s eyes closed and he felt her satin lips press to his, electrifying him. Slowly he ended the kiss that was as long as a life time and started another. This one was heated and loaded with passion, with this one kiss the entire mood changed, and he liked where it was going. Again they kissed, and again, faster, harder, feverishly their mouths discovered each other. He slipped his tongue inside her warm mouth and felt something…vibrate? He leaned back and caught his breath as she answered the phone.

“Hello?” Marie asked, sounding confused.

“Uh, Marie, hi.” answered a rough, husky voice. Derek noticed Marie’s face whiten and her jaw falter, trying to form words.

Finally she spoke. “What?” she asked sharply. He didn’t know what was wrong, but he knew it was something.

“I’m sorry Marie! Ok! I was drunk! God damn it! Marie where the hell are you?!” the voice yelled through the phone. Marie clenched her jaw, jumped out of her seat and paced into the kitchen. He followed her and leaned on the counter waiting. 

“Like hell I’m going to tell you! And I don’t give a crap if you were drunk! I wouldn’t forgive you if you were possessed! Leave me alone!” Marie half yelled.

“Marie, babe, I love you I swear. Just come back, or tell me where you are.” Derek listened to the guy plead with her and saw the pain displayed on Marie’s face. Marie took a deep breath and he saw her trying to hold back tears.

“Jacob. I may have loved you once. But I will never ever love you again. Don’t call me. Please…” He saw the tears start down her cheeks and so desperately want to comfort her.

“Whatever, never loved you anyways. Bitch.” Click. He watched as Marie lowered the phone, and then her head, he walked up behind her and wrapped his arms around her like he knew she loved. He gave a slight squeeze and kissed her cheek before he whispered in her ear.

“I’m really sorry, what ever that was, you didn’t deserve it.”  Marie turned in his arms and he kissed the tears away from her cheeks. He looked into those beautiful, sorrow filled eyes and kissed her sweetly on the mouth.

“Do you- would  take a shower with me?” Marie asked softly.

~~~

Marie

His warm lips on hers soaked away the sadness Jacob brought her. She wanted desperately to shower and feel clean, but she didn’t want to be alone…

“Do you- would you take a shower with me?” she asked Derek quietly, hoping he wouldn’t refuse. She looked deep into those eyes she loved so much and searched for the answer she wanted. Derek softly kissed her again, making her want more.

“Absolutely.” Derek whispered. She grabbed Derek’s hand and led him to her bathroom. After turning on the shower she turned around to catch Derek staring at her, she loved catching him. Grinning, she unbuttoned her jeans. Only focusing on Derek’s green eyes, she kicked away her pants and lifted off her shirt. She never saw him looking at her body, only her eyes. She apprehensively made her way over to him and placed her hand in his, then she leaned in kissed him softy. She let go of his hand and walked into the shower, hoping he would follow. The anticipation built inside her as she could heard Derek removing his clothing piece by piece. She let the water hit her face and find its way down her body, calming her. The curtain ruffled and she heard him get in the shower, she felt him wrap his arms were around her stomach and she couldn’t help to surge of excitement and fear. She felt exhausted from everything lately and wanted to stay with Derek holding her forever, but she knew she couldn’t. She reached for the shampoo and his arms reluctantly let her go. Derek moved so she had enough room, but watched her back side as she worked in the shampoo. 

“Can I help?” she heard Derek ask in a deep velvet voice, how could she say no? She looked at his beautiful face and smiled.

“Sure.” she answered. Derek’s hands ran through her hair and spread the shampoo lower, washing her body. She was sure she would melt with every soft touch. Derek started with her shoulders and slowly made his way down her back to her waist, but his touches weren’t sexual, lustful, they were…loving, he touched her like a piece of art, like she was a treasure. She felt him finish with her back and she held her breath for what she knew was coming. She felt his gentle touch turning her body to face him, exposing her, for the first time, to a man’s eyes. She didn’t look anywhere but his face, but still couldn’t help the blush that rushed to her cheeks as she watched him look at her.

“W-what?” she wondered aloud, her voice accidentally cracking. She watched Derek’s eyes leap from her body to her face and search her eyes. He coughed and looked down.

“I- its just. I hate to say this because its so cliché, but…” she gazed into his eyes, as he spoke, “You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.” Derek admitted. She couldn’t hold back the grin, but instinctively she looked away, hoping to spare her self down the road…she‘d heard those words before. Instead of asking what’s wrong, she felt Derek grab her hand and kiss her cheek. She rinsed the shampoo out and put in the conditioner, keeping eye contact with him the entire time. She turned off the water and stepped out of the tub followed by Derek. She dried her body and couldn’t help but catch glimpsed of his… Her eyes couldn’t resist admiring his defined arms, his cut body, but she never looked lower then his abs.

She brought Derek to her room, put a tee shirt and underwear on, and curled up on her queen sized bed. Derek only had his jeans on from earlier, leaving his entire upper body exposed, and sending her heart flying in a dangerous direction. She smiled and curled her finger, telling him to join her. Her smile expanded as Derek laid on her bed and wrapped his arms around her pulling her in close. She put her head on his chest and listened to his heart beat sounding a stead thump, thump, thump. It was a beautiful sound, his heart beat, the promise of life, the promise of the future. She looked into his eyes and softly kissed his chest.

“So…I guess I owe you an explanation…” she started, not knowing if she was going to lie to him, or tell him the truth.

“Explanation for what?” Derek answered, sounding a bit confused. How could he not remember? Maybe he was being polite.

“For the, uh, phone call, earlier.” she explained, getting a little nervous.

“Oh, not if you don’t want to…you don’t have to tell me.” Derek replied. Did she want to tell him? She had never told anyone before…maybe he would listen, care even.

“Um, that guy who called, his name is Jacob. He’s my ex. We went out for a while, and I think at some point I loved him, but that’s not really important. What’s important is why we broke up, well, why I broke up with him. You see, he… we were about to do stuff and I didn’t want to go any further, but he didn’t want to stop. He didn’t think I could stop him.” She waited as Derek let the story sink in.

“How did you stop him?” Derek asked, concern in his eyes.

“That’s the weird part, I…I cant remember. I remember him…” She paused and held back the tears of anger and betrayal that threatened to tear her strength away. “He pinned me down, he was so heavy, I couldn’t move, or breathe and I could feel him tugging my clothes. I was so angry, I remember the anger, and I just blacked out. I woke up at my dads house in San Francisco the next day, fine. No bruising, no pain, nothing. And I knew I had gotten away, but to this day…” at this moment she locked eyes with Derek, “I have no idea how…”

He kissed her forehead. “I’m, so glad you got away…I promise I would never pressure you into something.”

“I know…” she whispered. “How late can you stay?” she asked, wishing it was all night.

“Until you kick me out.” Derek laughed. Marie could feel sleep creeping into her eyes and forcing a yawn.

“Could you stay until I fall asleep?” 

“I would love to.”  Derek replied in a voice Marie could listen to forever. She didn’t know how long she laid there, listening to him breathe, listening to his heart beat that wonderful thump, thump, thump, but slowly she sank into sleep.

She saw Jacobs handsome face in the ally by his apartment, coming in to kiss her lips. All of the sudden the walls were changing around and under them and they were in his room. Jacob laughed and kissed down her neck. Now they’re on the bed. Heavy. Stop. Too fast. Stop it.

“Come here baby doll.” cooed that gravelly voice that sent chills down her spine. His mouth pushed on her lips, stealing her air. Air. There’s no air. Stop! Hands pushing, who’s hands? Jacob! Anger. Red hot, burning, infectious anger! Nothing…

Marie sprang up in her bed sweating and breathing heavily. The third time this week Jacob tortured her in her dreams. What happened to her while she was out of it? She’d never had anything like that happen before. Her dad told her she wasn’t like him, only strong and fast…what was happening to her? She reached out for Derek, but realized he wasn’t there…what would he think if he knew?

Not that she would fucking call him back anyways! She didn’t have time for this, she had to get back to class, only two more hours until she saw Derek. Derek! What would he think of her if he knew…knew about her dad, about her?

    ~~~

    Derek

    Sixth hour finally rolled around and  he leaped out of his seat and practically ran out the door and down the hall towards Marie’s soft kiss. Every one of her kisses had been soft until today, that is exactly what had him excited. The kiss from this morning was filled with desire and passion and he wanted it again. 

    “Hey.” He said as he grabbed her hand.

    “Hi.” Marie replied. He looked down and couldn’t help but think about how beautiful she was. She was wearing a teal shirt that was tight at her waist and flowed down to her hips with dark jeans and flats. He liked how tall she was, tall enough so he didn’t have to bend down to kiss her, which was convenient. He took the books from her hands as they walked out the door together.

    “What time am I coming to hangout?” he asked, completely thrilled they were going to have the house all to themselves for as long as he could stay.

    “Is around five ok? I can make dinner.” Marie answered.

    “As you wish.” he whispered into her ear. He followed her to his truck and weaved through the back roads to her house. He stopped next to her mailbox and hopped out to open the door for her. When he got around to the side he took her by the waist and lowered her to the ground, even though she obviously didn’t need the help. He could tell by the way her heart quickened that she liked that… a lot. He decided to give her a little taste of what he was sure to happen later that day. He looked down into her eyes, her eyes that he swore held secrets he could know with time. He pressed his lips and his body to hers and grabbed her waist pulling her closer. He could tell he was squeezing too hard, but she didn’t seem to feel the pain, or she didn’t mind. With his other hand he pressed his thumb to her hip and massaged there. Knowing it had to be driving her crazy, he decided it was the perfect time to leave her wanting more. He leaned back and smiled and kissed her nose before grabbing her books and walking to the door. He turned back to see a clearly disappointed Marie and chuckled. “What?” he asked, playing innocent.

    “Hmmm,” Marie groaned, she eyed him knowingly, which excited him more. “Nothing…” Marie opened the front door and grabbed her books. He turned to leave, but heard the door open again so he turned to see Marie’s face sticking out from the house.

    “Yes?” he inquired. 

    “Just… come prepared.” Marie grinned and snuck back in the house before he could laugh. There was no way he was coming un-prepared. He drove home and began on the chores that were his only barrier between him and Marie at the moment. He shifted through the laundry and after that was done he loaded the dish washer and finally he cleaned his room and he was off. He launched down the stairs to freedom but only feet from the door was rained in by the voice of none other then his dad.

    “Where you going?” said a deep monotone full of authority.

    “To Josh‘s, remember? You and mom said I could go hangout tonight?” he replied. He pleaded with what ever god was listening that his dad wouldn’t change his mind, please, please, please. His father took a couple menacing steps closer to him and looked as serious as he’d seen him in a while. His dad slowly reached into his pocket, looked around to make sure there were no witnesses, and pulled out a condom. 

    “I know you’re not going to Josh’s.” He looked at his dad, slightly shocked, and took the condom without hesitation. “Don’t tell your mom.” His dad added in a hushed tone as he walked away. Derek didn’t say a word, but headed straight for the truck and then to Marie’s house. He pulled up and walked to the door, the anticipation burning inside of him, screaming for an escape, and waited for Marie. After what felt like forever she answered the door.

    “Hey.” Marie said with a grin as she let him in the house.

    “Hi.” he answered nervously. He stepped in and took her into his arms, kissing her forehead. He hadn’t noticed before, but now that he could breathe again, it felt almost as if the time he’d been away from her he’d been…holding his breath? Weird… He gave a squeeze and reluctantly released her. “What do you wanna do?” he asked, hoping she didn’t think he meant sex, oh god, the condom, he hoped she didn’t see it. How would she see it? He felt like he was going crazy! Why did he care? Sex with Kate wasn’t this big of deal, was it? No, couldn’t be.

    “Um, you pick a movie while I make grilled cheeses.” Marie answered as she lead him to the living room.

    “Sure, let me see what you have.” he answered as he walked to a large black book case lined with DVDs. She had a pretty big selection, he looked for an old childhood favorite, something they didn’t still have lying around his house. “Do you like robin hood?” he wondered aloud as he flashed her the front cover of the personified foxes. Marie stood in the kitchen, pan in hand, and smiled. 

    “Yeah, I love that movie, put it in.” Marie directed from the kitchen. He walked to the DVD player and popped it in after turning the TV on. After a couple of minutes Marie curled up on the couch next to him and handed him a plate. He sat next to her on the couch and put his arm around her. The movie started and as more time went by he had a harder and harder time focusing on the movie and not on her. God, he loved being this close to her. She was intoxicating, every part of her, her smile, her laugh, her skin, her striking beauty, her smell. She smelled better then anything before, like sugar cookies and cinnamon. The way her dirty blond hair waved perfectly made him want to touch her, but softly, he didn’t want to taint her, he wanted her to stay so perfect. 

    He looked back to the TV screen to see Robin hood put a ring on maid Marian and lead her through the waterfall. He looked back to Marie and smiled. She jerked her head over and her eyes crinkled with her grin.

    “What? What is it?” Marie questioned. 

    “I can’t watch the movie,” he started. She looked at him, obviously confused, and he brought his other arm around and slid it under her jaw and brought her forehead to his. “you’re so beautiful, I don’t dare look away.” he softly whispered. As he finished his words he could feel the air catch fire and he could practically smell the desire. Marie brought her eyes to his, her long lashes framing them perfectly, and he could feel it then. He felt her looking past all his secrets and walls, down straight to his very core. He was terrified, what if she didn’t like what she saw? What if she got a glimpse of the danger that laid behind his humanity? A glimpse of something she would never love. It was then he realized he was falling for her, really truly falling. 

    Marie’s eyes closed and he felt her satin lips press to his, electrifying him. Slowly he ended the kiss that was as long as a life time and started another. This one was heated and loaded with passion, with this one kiss the entire mood changed, and he liked where it was going. Again they kissed, and again, faster, harder, feverishly their mouths discovered each other. He slipped his tongue inside her warm mouth and felt something…vibrate? He leaned back and caught his breath as she answered the phone.

    “Hello?” Marie asked, sounding confused.

    “Uh, Marie, hi.” answered a rough, husky voice. Derek noticed Marie’s face whiten and her jaw falter, trying to form words.

    Finally she spoke. “What?” she asked sharply. He didn’t know what was wrong, but he knew it was something.

    “I’m sorry Marie! Ok! I was drunk! God damn it! Marie where the hell are you?!” the voice yelled through the phone. Marie clenched her jaw, jumped out of her seat and paced into the kitchen. He followed her and leaned on the counter waiting. 

    “Like hell I’m going to tell you! And I don’t give a crap if you were drunk! I wouldn’t forgive you if you were possessed! Leave me alone!” Marie half yelled.

    “Marie, babe, I love you I swear. Just come back, or tell me where you are.” Derek listened to the guy plead with her and saw the pain displayed on Marie’s face. Marie took a deep breath and he saw her trying to hold back tears.

    “Jacob. I may have loved you once. But I will never ever love you again. Don’t call me. Please…” He saw the tears start down her cheeks and so desperately want to comfort her.

    “Whatever, never loved you anyways. Bitch.” Click. He watched as Marie lowered the phone, and then her head, he walked up behind her and wrapped his arms around her like he knew she loved. He gave a slight squeeze and kissed her cheek before he whispered in her ear.

    “I’m really sorry, what ever that was, you didn’t deserve it.”  Marie turned in his arms and he kissed the tears away from her cheeks. He looked into those beautiful, sorrow filled eyes and kissed her sweetly on the mouth.

    “Do you- would  take a shower with me?” Marie asked softly.

    ~~~

    Marie

    His warm lips on hers soaked away the sadness Jacob brought her. She wanted desperately to shower and feel clean, but she didn’t want to be alone…

    “Do you- would you take a shower with me?” she asked Derek quietly, hoping he wouldn’t refuse. She looked deep into those eyes she loved so much and searched for the answer she wanted. Derek softly kissed her again, making her want more.

    “Absolutely.” Derek whispered. She grabbed Derek’s hand and led him to her bathroom. After turning on the shower she turned around to catch Derek staring at her, she loved catching him. Grinning, she unbuttoned her jeans. Only focusing on Derek’s green eyes, she kicked away her pants and lifted off her shirt. She never saw him looking at her body, only her eyes. She apprehensively made her way over to him and placed her hand in his, then she leaned in kissed him softy. She let go of his hand and walked into the shower, hoping he would follow. The anticipation built inside her as she could heard Derek removing his clothing piece by piece. She let the water hit her face and find its way down her body, calming her. The curtain ruffled and she heard him get in the shower, she felt him wrap his arms were around her stomach and she couldn’t help to surge of excitement and fear. She felt exhausted from everything lately and wanted to stay with Derek holding her forever, but she knew she couldn’t. She reached for the shampoo and his arms reluctantly let her go. Derek moved so she had enough room, but watched her back side as she worked in the shampoo. 

    “Can I help?” she heard Derek ask in a deep velvet voice, how could she say no? She looked at his beautiful face and smiled.

    “Sure.” she answered. Derek’s hands ran through her hair and spread the shampoo lower, washing her body. She was sure she would melt with every soft touch. Derek started with her shoulders and slowly made his way down her back to her waist, but his touches weren’t sexual, lustful, they were…loving, he touched her like a piece of art, like she was a treasure. She felt him finish with her back and she held her breath for what she knew was coming. She felt his gentle touch turning her body to face him, exposing her, for the first time, to a man’s eyes. She didn’t look anywhere but his face, but still couldn’t help the blush that rushed to her cheeks as she watched him look at her.

    “W-what?” she wondered aloud, her voice accidentally cracking. She watched Derek’s eyes leap from her body to her face and search her eyes. He coughed and looked down.

    “I- its just. I hate to say this because its so cliché, but…” she gazed into his eyes, as he spoke, “You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.” Derek admitted. She couldn’t hold back the grin, but instinctively she looked away, hoping to spare her self down the road…she‘d heard those words before. Instead of asking what’s wrong, she felt Derek grab her hand and kiss her cheek. She rinsed the shampoo out and put in the conditioner, keeping eye contact with him the entire time. She turned off the water and stepped out of the tub followed by Derek. She dried her body and couldn’t help but catch glimpsed of his… Her eyes couldn’t resist admiring his defined arms, his cut body, but she never looked lower then his abs.

    She brought Derek to her room, put a tee shirt and underwear on, and curled up on her queen sized bed. Derek only had his jeans on from earlier, leaving his entire upper body exposed, and sending her heart flying in a dangerous direction. She smiled and curled her finger, telling him to join her. Her smile expanded as Derek laid on her bed and wrapped his arms around her pulling her in close. She put her head on his chest and listened to his heart beat sounding a stead thump, thump, thump. It was a beautiful sound, his heart beat, the promise of life, the promise of the future. She looked into his eyes and softly kissed his chest.

    “So…I guess I owe you an explanation…” she started, not knowing if she was going to lie to him, or tell him the truth.

    “Explanation for what?” Derek answered, sounding a bit confused. How could he not remember? Maybe he was being polite.

    “For the, uh, phone call, earlier.” she explained, getting a little nervous.

    “Oh, not if you don’t want to…you don’t have to tell me.” Derek replied. Did she want to tell him? She had never told anyone before…maybe he would listen, care even.

    “Um, that guy who called, his name is Jacob. He’s my ex. We went out for a while, and I think at some point I loved him, but that’s not really important. What’s important is why we broke up, well, why I broke up with him. You see, he… we were about to do stuff and I didn’t want to go any further, but he didn’t want to stop. He didn’t think I could stop him.” She waited as Derek let the story sink in.

    “How did you stop him?” Derek asked, concern in his eyes.

    “That’s the weird part, I…I cant remember. I remember him…” She paused and held back the tears of anger and betrayal that threatened to tear her strength away. “He pinned me down, he was so heavy, I couldn’t move, or breathe and I could feel him tugging my clothes. I was so angry, I remember the anger, and I just blacked out. I woke up at my dads house in San Francisco the next day, fine. No bruising, no pain, nothing. And I knew I had gotten away, but to this day…” at this moment she locked eyes with Derek, “I have no idea how…”

    He kissed her forehead. “I’m, so glad you got away…I promise I would never pressure you into something.”

    “I know…” she whispered. “How late can you stay?” she asked, wishing it was all night.

    “Until you kick me out.” Derek laughed. Marie could feel sleep creeping into her eyes and forcing a yawn.

    “Could you stay until I fall asleep?” 

    “I would love to.”  Derek replied in a voice Marie could listen to forever. She didn’t know how long she laid there, listening to him breathe, listening to his heart beat that wonderful thump, thump, thump, but slowly she sank into sleep.

    She saw Jacobs handsome face in the ally by his apartment, coming in to kiss her lips. All of the sudden the walls were changing around and under them and they were in his room. Jacob laughed and kissed down her neck. Now they’re on the bed. Heavy. Stop. Too fast. Stop it.

    “Come here baby doll.” cooed that gravelly voice that sent chills down her spine. His mouth pushed on her lips, stealing her air. Air. There’s no air. Stop! Hands pushing, who’s hands? Jacob! Anger. Red hot, burning, infectious anger! Nothing…

    Marie sprang up in her bed sweating and breathing heavily. The third time this week Jacob tortured her in her dreams. What happened to her while she was out of it? She’d never had anything like that happen before. Her dad told her she wasn’t like him, only strong and fast…what was happening to her? She reached out for Derek, but realized he wasn’t there…what would he think if he knew?

    another pic that reminded me of his dream :)

     
  5. I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start
The world is coming down on me and I can’t find a reason to be loved
I never wanna leave you but I can’t make you bleed if I’m alone
I tried my best to never let you in to see the truth
And I’ve never opened up
I’ve never truly loved ‘Till you put your arms around me
And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go


Chapter 6


Derek 


The light rain came down on his head as he walked in from lunch with Josh. He stuffed his hands in the pockets of his leather jacket and they made the trek in the drizzling rain to the building. He stepped inside and smiled mischievously at Josh before shaking his wet hair off in his face.


“Dude! Pft! Ek!” Josh complained as they made their way down the hall. “Ok, so now that you’ve taken a break from torturing me, was your dad serious about what he said the other day?”


“Which thing he was taking about yesterday? I live with him, and you do realize he’s kinda chatty.” Derek joked.


“He said you guys might be planning a trip down to beach?” he answered, almost dropping a text book and barely catching it. 


“Yeah, my mom seemed interested, which means it could actually happen. My dad said he would like to go for spring break, the water would be cold, but not for us, so it would be ok.” he said with a shrug.


“Cool, do you think they would let me come?” Josh asked with a grin.


“I don’t see why not, so long as you don’t salivate when we’re in the car with Tess.” he said, playfully eyeing his best friend.


“Ha! No promises.” Josh teased as he rounded the corner. Derek kept heading strait and saw exactly what he’d been looking for. Marie stood at the end of the hallway next to Tess and he couldn’t help but stare. He came round to stand between them and looked down at the pair.


“Hey guys. Tess, so um did you hear we might be going to the beach for spring break?” he said as he shifted his weight, trying to shake away the nervousness Marie always seemed to give him.


“What? Really, when did this happen?” Tess inquired.


“Yesterday, apparently dad wants to go to the beach.” he replied, hoping it would spark Marie’s interest. 


“Cool. Hey, I got to go you guys, I have to take care of something in Fosters class before lunch ends.” Tess walked away and rounded the corner. Derek looked down at Marie and felt his mouth involuntarily form a smile.


“Hey, you still want to go tonight right?” he asked, hoping he hadn’t just made a mistake in giving her an out.


“Yeah, absolutely.” She answered. He noted the secretive smile that stretched across her lips, like she was hiding something, ha, how ironic. He gently cupped his hand under her jaw and tilted her head upward, electrifying the air around them. He looked deeply into her eyes and brought his lips teasingly close to hers before he stopped.


“I’ll see you at six.” he whispered and he planted a soft kiss on her cheek that left her blushing. Derek chuckled and wrapped his arms around her waist and gave a little squeeze. Riiiing! He heard the final bell sound and figured he had better hurry up and get out of there.


“Cant wait…” she whispered as she turned to walk away. He walked away in a breathless haze. God he couldn’t wait for tonight. He trudged back out to his car through the thick mist and climbed into the cab. He planned on doing homework but decided a nap would be way more productive. He stretched out in the truck and tried to get comfortable, soon enough there was a soft snore coming from his tired body.


Crunch. Crunch. Crunch. He could feel the leaves before he could see them and he could smell the earth before he saw the rich soil. He thought he was in the woods near his house, but when he looked around he realized he was much  farther then that, in fact he had no idea which way was home, and he was parched. He breathed heavily and realized he was fully turned, he trudged over to a tree and sniffed the air. He could smell a large body of water not far away so he let his instincts take over and guide him. He stumbled upon a large lake and instead of just getting water he decided a swim couldn’t hurt. He unzipped his jeans and let them fall to the ground, his boxers soon followed. He waded slowly into the cool water and enjoyed every second. He dove head first and could feel himself changing back as the chill of the water relaxed him. He came up for air and stared back to the shore. Suddenly he saw a pale figure flash behind a tree followed by a soft giggle, he stopped in the water about waist deep and waited. 


“Who’s there?” he said confidently. He didn’t know who this person was, but he was almost sure it wasn’t male and that he could out fight them. He hoped more then anything he wasn’t trespassing into another packs territory, that could mean bad news. Just then he caught a glimpse of long, softly curled blonde hair accompanied by a porcelain shoulder peak out from behind a tree.


“I see you…” he said, hoping for a response. Suddenly, Marie walked out from behind the tree wearing nothing but a mischievous grin. “Marie?!” His eyes widened and he instantly jerked his head down so he stared at the water, but slowly brought his head back up and let his eyes wander everywhere they wanted. She was beautiful, completely stunning as the moon light gleamed off her skin and she made her way to the lakes edge.


“It’s only me…promise. I‘ve been waiting for you.” The corners of her mouth turned up, like she wanted to laugh. She reached the water and began wading out to him and she looked up into his eyes and he felt like all he could do was stare. Her beautiful hair cascaded down her back and gleamed in the moon light. As she got closer he tried to stop staring at her body so he looked to her face, which was just as breathtaking. She had long, think, black eyelashes that framed her green eyes and below them she had naturally reddened lips that he couldn’t wait to taste. She stepped in front of him and he watched as she scanned his body and looked back to his face. He leaned down and slowly, sweetly kissed her full on the lips. He felt her hand playing with his hair and he grabbed her waist to pull her closer. When the kiss ended she laughed and turned to leave, but when he tried to follow his feet were stuck in the mud. He sluggishly trudged back to shore and put his pants on but when he turned to look for her he couldn’t see where she had gone.


“Marie?…Marie!” he looked anxiously around but no one was there. He stared running and heard something following him, he jerked around and heard a cruel laugh. He started running again, faster and faster until the woods were a blur around his face. No matter how fast he ran he couldn’t get away from the feeling that he was being followed, hunted even. He stopped and whipped around, ready for a fight, and was pierced in the shoulder by an arrow that slung him to the forest floor. He cried out and tried to pull it out, he heard leaves crunching and suddenly someone was standing over him. He lifted his eyes to Kate’s taunting smirk.


He jerked up and looked around and remembered that he was in his car. The fog had completely rolled in and there was a layer of precipitation on the windows. He looked at the clock and decided to go back in when he turned to open the door he noticed a small spiral drawn on the drivers window. 


Marie


“Lauren! God! Lauren?! Where is my shirt?!” Marie yelled, panicking, as she ran about her room digging in piles of laundry. “Lauren I need that shirt!”


“Uh! I don’t know where your shirt is!” her sister yelled back at her as she strolled down the hall. Marie checked her phone. Crap, almost six.


“Lauren! Where is that shirt! I swear on your grave if you don’t come up with that shirt in five minutes I will find a way to make you suffer.” Marie growled through her teeth at her sister.


“Phfft.” Her sister sneered and she leaned against the door jam. “Is that a threat?” Marie was at least five inches taller then her younger sister, and much stronger. She intrusively stepped into Lauren’s space and looked her in the eye.


“If you don’t find my shirt, that’ll be a promise.” she replied assertively. Marie’s sister had a look on her face that was mixed between defeat and defiance.


“Fine. I’ll find your shirt.” 


She breathed a sigh of relief and walked back to her dresser which held all of her make up and a large mirror. She put mousse in her hair to enhance its natural curl and loved the soft wave it had. She touched up her eye liner, mascara, and added a hint of brick red lipstick to darken her lips. She could feel her nerves starting again and instinctively grabbed for her light pink phone. Five fifty, she had ten minutes to work with, she thought she could pull this off…maybe. 


As she applied all the necessary makeup, her mind ventured back to the previous week. It had flown by, and dragged on all at the same time. She felt unsure with everything going as quickly as it was but it seemed like the one thing she was curtain of was her feelings. No matter how hasty or childishly simple, she knew it was right, the way he looked at her, studied her, she knew he felt the same. She actually had a hard time when she really looked at him. She often found herself distracted by him, his handsome face, his amazing body, his beautiful eyes. She really couldn’t get enough of him, but knew that pacing herself was a good thing, even though it was the last thing she wanted to do. If it had been up to her she would have done everything he would let her get away with on that first night. A small part of her wished that she wasn’t a virgin, she didn’t want all of the pressure with Derek.


She was trapped in yesterdays memory when Lauren opened the door and threw her light grey shirt. That day she had  missed the bus and decided to walk home in the brisk weather even though her back pack, no longer empty, weighed her down. She could handle a few books, but she hadn’t gone to her locker since she arrived and currently hauled four books, one binder, and a literature book. About a quarter mile down the road she almost couldn’t bear it anymore. Inches from having to trek through a puddle that reflected a dingy teenager at her wits end, she stopped and stood, letting the comforting sun stoke her cheeks and warm her slightly. 


Marie heard another car approaching and started moving to the side. Suddenly it slowed and came to the side of the road, an alarm rang in her mind. “Be careful!” it screamed. What if who ever was in that car wasn’t friendly? What if they wanted to force her into something? Well, if there was one thing she knew she wouldn’t go down without a fight. Someone would bleed before she was forced anywhere she didn’t want to go. Running crossed her mind, even just walking in the opposite direction, but all the pleading a coaxing in the world couldn’t move her feet. Her mind was made up for flight, but her body had chosen fight. She knew she was stronger the most girls, and might be able to fight off one of them enough to bolt to the street and demand a savior, but if there were two, or even just one that was considerably strong, she knew that wasn’t a guarantee. The minivan rolled to a stop and a side door slid open slowly. Fully aware of the movement inside the car, Marie stood, glued to the grass. A blond boy popped his head out and looked at her.


“Hey!” he yelled. By the tone of his voice Marie guessed he was probably in middle school. “Hey! Do you want a ride?” What? A ride? Who is this kid?


“Uh, well,” Suddenly she knew exactly who he was, “Alex?” she burst before she jogged over to the car. She hopped over tiny puddles to the safety of the van and hoped she was right about who was driving. Alex closed his door and Derek rolled down the passenger side window, grinning. 


“I thought you might want a ride, ya know, with that huge back pack. Come on in, I’ll take you home.” he winked at her and laughed a little. He spoke in a voice that smoothly ran down her ears. She found herself fixated on him and thought she could listen to him for days.


“W-where’s Tess?” she asked almost choking on her words. Marie realized, as she spoke, Tess was with Dylan, doing whatever. She shook the image from her mind and opened the door. 


“With Dylan.” they shared a glance and smile, both cringing at the thought of what was sure to be taking place.


She snapped back to reality and looked down at her phone to check the time, five fifty five, five minutes. She changed into skinny jeans that hugged her curves and a flowing gray shirt that made her waist look smaller and gave a hint of cleavage. Why not show off what she had? Maybe it would make him stick around. She paced her room nervously and convinced herself it would be ok. She went into the bathroom and brushed her teeth, for the third time, and flossed. If she got to kiss him again, she was not grossing him out with bad teeth. She leaned on the counter, scrutinizing her face, and made sure her make up was perfect. She walked out to the kitchen and looked at her mom and sister.


“Do I look ok…?” she asked, hoping for a good reply. 


“You look really good!” her sister replied right away. Her mom sauntered over and looked her up and down.


“Don’t you think you should pull your shirt up?” Marie turned slightly red as she yanked her shirt up higher on her chest and rolled her eyes. “Yes, I think you look very nice. I hope you have a good time on your date.” 


“Thanks mom.” she answered. As if on cue, the door bell rang and they all walked to the front of the house. Marie answered the door and smiled at Derek.


“Hey…” Derek breathed barely louder then a whisper. 


“Hey your self.” she answered as she stepped out of the house. His gaze followed her and she couldn’t help herself from smiling.


“You, you look beautiful…” he said as he looked into Marie’s eyes. Her mom and sister walked up and Derek looked away. “Hi, I’m Derek, its nice to meet you guys.” Marie could only watch as Lauren jutted out her hand and opened her mouth but said nothing.


Derek took her hand and shook it politely as he spoke. “Hi, what’s your name?” he asked, but instead of getting an answer Lauren just looked at him, with her mouth hanging slightly agar.


“Her name is Lauren, its nice to meet you too Derek, you can call me Mrs. Nichols. I hope you guys have a good time, what time will you be home Marie?” she looked at Derek and back to her mom.


“Well we’re going to see the movie, and it ends at like 9:30, and we wanted to go get dessert afterwards, so can we be out until10:00?” she asked with the most responsible, convincing voice she could manage.


“Alright, see you at 10:00…” her mom said somewhat suspiciously. She held her breath as her and Derek walked to his truck and got in.


“You know the movie ends at like 8:30.” He said as he started the Chevy and weaved through the neighborhood.

Marie slid her body across the truck and sat in the middle seat and let their legs touch. “Yeah, I know.” she answered with a grin.


~~~


Derek


“I cannot believe they got away from that semi!” Marie laughed as they walked back to Derek’s truck. He smiled and laughed along with her as he nonchalantly wrapped his arm around her shoulders. He noticed her smile widen and she brought her arm around the back of his waist.
“Seriously though that is a huge suspension of disbelief!” Marie continued.


“I’d have to say the tanning bed scene was the worst though.” he laughed as he opened the door for her. He walked around to the other side, hopped in the truck, and started out of the parking lot.


“Yeah, that was pretty bad. Well, that’s the last time I watch a final destination movie.” Marie chuckled. Derek looked over at her and saw a shiver run through her. He opened his arm and smiled as Marie scooted next to him.


“So where do you want to go for dessert?” he asked, not having a preference himself. 


“Oh um, I don’t know anywhere good, do you?” Marie asked. He thought for a minute and then remembered this one place, on the edge of town, that he had gone to with his granddad right before the accident.


“Oh,  I know. There is a ice cream place about five minutes from here called Ann’s. Is that ok?” he asked. 


“Yeah, that’s fine.” she replied. He laced his fingers through Marie’s and they sat together in the comfortable silence until they pulled up to a lone diner looking building that had a neon sign that read ANN’S. They walked in and smiled at the older woman behind the counter.


“Hello, how may we serve you here?” the woman said in a frail voice that sounded as if it could shatter.


“We’re going to get some ice cream.” he replied. Him and Marie pressed against the glass and looked at the flavors. 


“I’ll have Butter Pecan.” he told the woman.


“And I’ll have chocolate.” Marie said sweetly. 


“Will that be double or single scoop?” The old woman asked
them. He turned to look at Marie for an answer.


“Single scoop is good for me.” Marie answered. 


“Me too.” he told the woman. He paid and as she handed him the change she looked up at him strangely. 


“Young man, your face is painfully familiar, what is your name?” the old woman questioned.


“Derek, Derek Hale.” he answered, slightly curious.


“Hmmm, was your grandfather Jonathan Hale? He used to visit my shop quite often.” she said tapping her lips with her finger tips.


“Yeah, you knew him?”

“Yes, your grandfather was a dear friend of mine. Does he
still live here?” she said as she continued to reflect. Derek realized this old woman must not have heard.


“Oh, I’m sorry he, he and my grandma died when I was six, in a car accident.” he answered. He saw her gaze fall and felt bad, they must have been good friends. 


“That’s too bad…” she replied, seeming distracted. He followed Marie to a booth and sat across from her and smiled because she had a bit of ice cream on her nose.


“What? What is it?” Marie asked as she noticed his stare. 


“You have some ice cream on your nose.” Marie instinctively reached upward to wipe away the mess, but completely missed. Derek chuckled and leaned forward.


“Here…” he said as he wiped away the chocolate from her face and licked it away from his thumb. Marie laughed and finished her ice cream and they stood to leave.


“You two come back here and visit old Annie sometime, hardly have any young people in here anymore.” the woman said with a little wave as they turned to leave.


“We’ll be back, don’t worry.” Marie replied with a smile. He followed Marie back out to the truck and they both got in.

“Where to now?” she asked him.


“Well I know this really cool spot out in the woods, do you wanna go? I usually just go to be alone. It‘s on the far edge of our property.” 


“Cool, lets go.” she said with a adventurous smile. He weaved his way through some of the back roads and finally pulled up to a DO NOT ENTER sign. He got out and met Marie in front of the car.


“Derek, I cant see a thing.” Marie whispered to him as she grabbed a hold of his arm. He smiled, everything was crystal clear to him.


“I’ll be your eyes.” he whispered quietly into here ear as he swooped her into his arms.


“Ahhh!” Marie yelped. “D-Don’t drop me.” she pleaded as he felt her grip tighten. 


“Don’t worry, I wont drop you.” he reassured her. He trudged though the woods with her in his arms to the field he knew couldn’t be far from here. Finally he stepped into a large clearing and set Marie down. Her face rose to look at the sky that was illuminated by millions of stars you could barley see through the canopy. She took a few steps into the field and he noticed a large shiver travel through her again. He took off his leather jacket and wrapped it around her, revealing the black shirt he had thrown on earlier that day. Marie turned around and he couldn’t stop himself from noticing her stare. She walked back to him and he tried to keep calm, as she wrapped her arms around his waist and snuggled into his chest, suddenly she looked up to his face and lightly kissed him. He felt the electricity start  in his lips and run all the way down to his feet, bringing him to life. Marie let go and grabbed his hand, she led him to the center of the field where she laid in the grass and smiled mischievously up at him. He chuckled and laid next to her and wrapped his arm around her.


“Lets play a game.” Marie suggested as she wrapped her arms around him and turned on her side.


“Ok, like what?” he asked, knowing he would probably do anything she wanted at this moment.


“Let’s play truth or dare.”


“Ok, truth or dare?” he asked.

“Truth.” she answered. He thought for a second, what should he ask? 


“If you could have any super power, what would it be?” he turned to look at her face. He laughed when her eyes questioned his choice. “What? Choice of super power says a lot about a person!” they laughed together and Marie smiled at him.


“Ok, if I could have any super power it would be mind
reading.” she decided.


“Hmm, curiosity killed the cat you know.” he laughed.


“Yeah I know, truth or dare.” she replied.


“Truth.” he said, hoping she was having fun.


“Are you scared?” Marie asked seriously.


“Of what?” 


“Of the future, of it all. Does it scare you?” 


“No, I figure, I’ll all be ok. Whatever happens I’ll always have the people I love. Ok truth or dare?” he said. 


“Dare.” Marie said with a playful grin.


“I dare you to howl to the moon!” he helled loud enough for it to echo.


“Owwww!” Marie belted with all her might. Her lone howl died down and she looked at him expectantly. “Truth or dare.”


“Truth.” he answered.


“If you could be anywhere with anyone right now, where would you be and who with?” Marie questioned. He turned his body so their faces we only a couple of inches from each other.


“Hmmmm, that’s a hard one. I think I’d be in a big field, in California, with Marie Nichols.” he said as he slowly leaned closer until he felt her soft lips shoot electricity through his brain.



ok, ok, ok, i know the gif is of damon and whats her face (no disrespect i just cant remember her name) but it just went so perfectly with his dream i couldnt help myself!!!! im sorry >_< lol, i had fun with this one, hope you like it <3

    I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart

    But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

    The world is coming down on me and I can’t find a reason to be loved

    I never wanna leave you but I can’t make you bleed if I’m alone

    I tried my best to never let you in to see the truth

    And I’ve never opened up

    I’ve never truly loved ‘Till you put your arms around me

    And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go

    Chapter 6

    Derek 

    The light rain came down on his head as he walked in from lunch with Josh. He stuffed his hands in the pockets of his leather jacket and they made the trek in the drizzling rain to the building. He stepped inside and smiled mischievously at Josh before shaking his wet hair off in his face.

    “Dude! Pft! Ek!” Josh complained as they made their way down the hall. “Ok, so now that you’ve taken a break from torturing me, was your dad serious about what he said the other day?”

    “Which thing he was taking about yesterday? I live with him, and you do realize he’s kinda chatty.” Derek joked.

    “He said you guys might be planning a trip down to beach?” he answered, almost dropping a text book and barely catching it. 

    “Yeah, my mom seemed interested, which means it could actually happen. My dad said he would like to go for spring break, the water would be cold, but not for us, so it would be ok.” he said with a shrug.

    “Cool, do you think they would let me come?” Josh asked with a grin.

    “I don’t see why not, so long as you don’t salivate when we’re in the car with Tess.” he said, playfully eyeing his best friend.

    “Ha! No promises.” Josh teased as he rounded the corner. Derek kept heading strait and saw exactly what he’d been looking for. Marie stood at the end of the hallway next to Tess and he couldn’t help but stare. He came round to stand between them and looked down at the pair.

    “Hey guys. Tess, so um did you hear we might be going to the beach for spring break?” he said as he shifted his weight, trying to shake away the nervousness Marie always seemed to give him.

    “What? Really, when did this happen?” Tess inquired.

    “Yesterday, apparently dad wants to go to the beach.” he replied, hoping it would spark Marie’s interest. 

    “Cool. Hey, I got to go you guys, I have to take care of something in Fosters class before lunch ends.” Tess walked away and rounded the corner. Derek looked down at Marie and felt his mouth involuntarily form a smile.

    “Hey, you still want to go tonight right?” he asked, hoping he hadn’t just made a mistake in giving her an out.

    “Yeah, absolutely.” She answered. He noted the secretive smile that stretched across her lips, like she was hiding something, ha, how ironic. He gently cupped his hand under her jaw and tilted her head upward, electrifying the air around them. He looked deeply into her eyes and brought his lips teasingly close to hers before he stopped.

    “I’ll see you at six.” he whispered and he planted a soft kiss on her cheek that left her blushing. Derek chuckled and wrapped his arms around her waist and gave a little squeeze. Riiiing! He heard the final bell sound and figured he had better hurry up and get out of there.

    “Cant wait…” she whispered as she turned to walk away. He walked away in a breathless haze. God he couldn’t wait for tonight. He trudged back out to his car through the thick mist and climbed into the cab. He planned on doing homework but decided a nap would be way more productive. He stretched out in the truck and tried to get comfortable, soon enough there was a soft snore coming from his tired body.


    Crunch. Crunch. Crunch. He could feel the leaves before he could see them and he could smell the earth before he saw the rich soil. He thought he was in the woods near his house, but when he looked around he realized he was much  farther then that, in fact he had no idea which way was home, and he was parched. He breathed heavily and realized he was fully turned, he trudged over to a tree and sniffed the air. He could smell a large body of water not far away so he let his instincts take over and guide him. He stumbled upon a large lake and instead of just getting water he decided a swim couldn’t hurt. He unzipped his jeans and let them fall to the ground, his boxers soon followed. He waded slowly into the cool water and enjoyed every second. He dove head first and could feel himself changing back as the chill of the water relaxed him. He came up for air and stared back to the shore. Suddenly he saw a pale figure flash behind a tree followed by a soft giggle, he stopped in the water about waist deep and waited. 


    “Who’s there?” he said confidently. He didn’t know who this person was, but he was almost sure it wasn’t male and that he could out fight them. He hoped more then anything he wasn’t trespassing into another packs territory, that could mean bad news. Just then he caught a glimpse of long, softly curled blonde hair accompanied by a porcelain shoulder peak out from behind a tree.


    “I see you…” he said, hoping for a response. Suddenly, Marie walked out from behind the tree wearing nothing but a mischievous grin. “Marie?!” His eyes widened and he instantly jerked his head down so he stared at the water, but slowly brought his head back up and let his eyes wander everywhere they wanted. She was beautiful, completely stunning as the moon light gleamed off her skin and she made her way to the lakes edge.


    “It’s only me…promise. I‘ve been waiting for you.” The corners of her mouth turned up, like she wanted to laugh. She reached the water and began wading out to him and she looked up into his eyes and he felt like all he could do was stare. Her beautiful hair cascaded down her back and gleamed in the moon light. As she got closer he tried to stop staring at her body so he looked to her face, which was just as breathtaking. She had long, think, black eyelashes that framed her green eyes and below them she had naturally reddened lips that he couldn’t wait to taste. She stepped in front of him and he watched as she scanned his body and looked back to his face. He leaned down and slowly, sweetly kissed her full on the lips. He felt her hand playing with his hair and he grabbed her waist to pull her closer. When the kiss ended she laughed and turned to leave, but when he tried to follow his feet were stuck in the mud. He sluggishly trudged back to shore and put his pants on but when he turned to look for her he couldn’t see where she had gone.


    “Marie?…Marie!” he looked anxiously around but no one was there. He stared running and heard something following him, he jerked around and heard a cruel laugh. He started running again, faster and faster until the woods were a blur around his face. No matter how fast he ran he couldn’t get away from the feeling that he was being followed, hunted even. He stopped and whipped around, ready for a fight, and was pierced in the shoulder by an arrow that slung him to the forest floor. He cried out and tried to pull it out, he heard leaves crunching and suddenly someone was standing over him. He lifted his eyes to Kate’s taunting smirk.

    He jerked up and looked around and remembered that he was in his car. The fog had completely rolled in and there was a layer of precipitation on the windows. He looked at the clock and decided to go back in when he turned to open the door he noticed a small spiral drawn on the drivers window. 

    Marie

    “Lauren! God! Lauren?! Where is my shirt?!” Marie yelled, panicking, as she ran about her room digging in piles of laundry. “Lauren I need that shirt!”

    “Uh! I don’t know where your shirt is!” her sister yelled back at her as she strolled down the hall. Marie checked her phone. Crap, almost six.

    “Lauren! Where is that shirt! I swear on your grave if you don’t come up with that shirt in five minutes I will find a way to make you suffer.” Marie growled through her teeth at her sister.

    “Phfft.” Her sister sneered and she leaned against the door jam. “Is that a threat?” Marie was at least five inches taller then her younger sister, and much stronger. She intrusively stepped into Lauren’s space and looked her in the eye.

    “If you don’t find my shirt, that’ll be a promise.” she replied assertively. Marie’s sister had a look on her face that was mixed between defeat and defiance.

    “Fine. I’ll find your shirt.” 

    She breathed a sigh of relief and walked back to her dresser which held all of her make up and a large mirror. She put mousse in her hair to enhance its natural curl and loved the soft wave it had. She touched up her eye liner, mascara, and added a hint of brick red lipstick to darken her lips. She could feel her nerves starting again and instinctively grabbed for her light pink phone. Five fifty, she had ten minutes to work with, she thought she could pull this off…maybe. 

    As she applied all the necessary makeup, her mind ventured back to the previous week. It had flown by, and dragged on all at the same time. She felt unsure with everything going as quickly as it was but it seemed like the one thing she was curtain of was her feelings. No matter how hasty or childishly simple, she knew it was right, the way he looked at her, studied her, she knew he felt the same. She actually had a hard time when she really looked at him. She often found herself distracted by him, his handsome face, his amazing body, his beautiful eyes. She really couldn’t get enough of him, but knew that pacing herself was a good thing, even though it was the last thing she wanted to do. If it had been up to her she would have done everything he would let her get away with on that first night. A small part of her wished that she wasn’t a virgin, she didn’t want all of the pressure with Derek.

    She was trapped in yesterdays memory when Lauren opened the door and threw her light grey shirt. That day she had  missed the bus and decided to walk home in the brisk weather even though her back pack, no longer empty, weighed her down. She could handle a few books, but she hadn’t gone to her locker since she arrived and currently hauled four books, one binder, and a literature book. About a quarter mile down the road she almost couldn’t bear it anymore. Inches from having to trek through a puddle that reflected a dingy teenager at her wits end, she stopped and stood, letting the comforting sun stoke her cheeks and warm her slightly. 

    Marie heard another car approaching and started moving to the side. Suddenly it slowed and came to the side of the road, an alarm rang in her mind. “Be careful!” it screamed. What if who ever was in that car wasn’t friendly? What if they wanted to force her into something? Well, if there was one thing she knew she wouldn’t go down without a fight. Someone would bleed before she was forced anywhere she didn’t want to go. Running crossed her mind, even just walking in the opposite direction, but all the pleading a coaxing in the world couldn’t move her feet. Her mind was made up for flight, but her body had chosen fight. She knew she was stronger the most girls, and might be able to fight off one of them enough to bolt to the street and demand a savior, but if there were two, or even just one that was considerably strong, she knew that wasn’t a guarantee. The minivan rolled to a stop and a side door slid open slowly. Fully aware of the movement inside the car, Marie stood, glued to the grass. A blond boy popped his head out and looked at her.

    “Hey!” he yelled. By the tone of his voice Marie guessed he was probably in middle school. “Hey! Do you want a ride?” What? A ride? Who is this kid?

    “Uh, well,” Suddenly she knew exactly who he was, “Alex?” she burst before she jogged over to the car. She hopped over tiny puddles to the safety of the van and hoped she was right about who was driving. Alex closed his door and Derek rolled down the passenger side window, grinning. 

    “I thought you might want a ride, ya know, with that huge back pack. Come on in, I’ll take you home.” he winked at her and laughed a little. He spoke in a voice that smoothly ran down her ears. She found herself fixated on him and thought she could listen to him for days.

    “W-where’s Tess?” she asked almost choking on her words. Marie realized, as she spoke, Tess was with Dylan, doing whatever. She shook the image from her mind and opened the door. 

    “With Dylan.” they shared a glance and smile, both cringing at the thought of what was sure to be taking place.

    She snapped back to reality and looked down at her phone to check the time, five fifty five, five minutes. She changed into skinny jeans that hugged her curves and a flowing gray shirt that made her waist look smaller and gave a hint of cleavage. Why not show off what she had? Maybe it would make him stick around. She paced her room nervously and convinced herself it would be ok. She went into the bathroom and brushed her teeth, for the third time, and flossed. If she got to kiss him again, she was not grossing him out with bad teeth. She leaned on the counter, scrutinizing her face, and made sure her make up was perfect. She walked out to the kitchen and looked at her mom and sister.

    “Do I look ok…?” she asked, hoping for a good reply. 

    “You look really good!” her sister replied right away. Her mom sauntered over and looked her up and down.

    “Don’t you think you should pull your shirt up?” Marie turned slightly red as she yanked her shirt up higher on her chest and rolled her eyes. “Yes, I think you look very nice. I hope you have a good time on your date.” 

    “Thanks mom.” she answered. As if on cue, the door bell rang and they all walked to the front of the house. Marie answered the door and smiled at Derek.

    “Hey…” Derek breathed barely louder then a whisper. 

    “Hey your self.” she answered as she stepped out of the house. His gaze followed her and she couldn’t help herself from smiling.

    “You, you look beautiful…” he said as he looked into Marie’s eyes. Her mom and sister walked up and Derek looked away. “Hi, I’m Derek, its nice to meet you guys.” Marie could only watch as Lauren jutted out her hand and opened her mouth but said nothing.

    Derek took her hand and shook it politely as he spoke. “Hi, what’s your name?” he asked, but instead of getting an answer Lauren just looked at him, with her mouth hanging slightly agar.

    “Her name is Lauren, its nice to meet you too Derek, you can call me Mrs. Nichols. I hope you guys have a good time, what time will you be home Marie?” she looked at Derek and back to her mom.

    “Well we’re going to see the movie, and it ends at like 9:30, and we wanted to go get dessert afterwards, so can we be out until10:00?” she asked with the most responsible, convincing voice she could manage.

    “Alright, see you at 10:00…” her mom said somewhat suspiciously. She held her breath as her and Derek walked to his truck and got in.

    “You know the movie ends at like 8:30.” He said as he started the Chevy and weaved through the neighborhood.

    Marie slid her body across the truck and sat in the middle seat and let their legs touch. “Yeah, I know.” she answered with a grin.

    ~~~

    Derek

    “I cannot believe they got away from that semi!” Marie laughed as they walked back to Derek’s truck. He smiled and laughed along with her as he nonchalantly wrapped his arm around her shoulders. He noticed her smile widen and she brought her arm around the back of his waist.

    “Seriously though that is a huge suspension of disbelief!” Marie continued.

    “I’d have to say the tanning bed scene was the worst though.” he laughed as he opened the door for her. He walked around to the other side, hopped in the truck, and started out of the parking lot.

    “Yeah, that was pretty bad. Well, that’s the last time I watch a final destination movie.” Marie chuckled. Derek looked over at her and saw a shiver run through her. He opened his arm and smiled as Marie scooted next to him.

    “So where do you want to go for dessert?” he asked, not having a preference himself. 

    “Oh um, I don’t know anywhere good, do you?” Marie asked. He thought for a minute and then remembered this one place, on the edge of town, that he had gone to with his granddad right before the accident.
