Chapter 22

I walked into my kitchen, today was the day the other pack was going to join us here, and I felt happy, but wanted everything to look good and presentable. I felt someone walk behind me and put their arms around my waist.

"Babe, stop worrying." Chris said. "Everything is going to be fine." He said with a smile. The pack coming to us was a friend of theirs. It was going to be nice to see new faces.

"I don’t want to go school." Eliza was pouting, making me laugh. She could get anything from Jake with that, but with Cole and Chris, I don’t think it would be that easy.

"I will drop you, I will even be your guard if you want." Jake said, but she kept pouting.

"You will just distract me though. I want to stay home." She said blushing.

"You have to go… for me?" he said to her with a charming smile. He drew her into his arms and she nodded in his chest. I smiled at the exchange.

It has been about a week since the incident with Sarah and Heather. I have been happy for that, nothing drastic has happened. I had not been back to school, though I loved the thought of going to New York, but it does not matter anymore. I have a tutor coming in to teach me, and if I work harder than I do in school, I would be able to finish school really soon. After Christmas I hope. My tutor was not coming today, which I was happy for. I wanted to prepare for my guests, help the maids out a bit.

"Babe, why don’t you just rest? You have been tired the whole week. You look stressed." Chris said, kissing my temple.

"But I need to help. The maids like it when I help." I said to him.

"They also like to serve you." Cole said coming out of nowhere and kissed my pouty lips.

"Fine." I went to my private room, and pulled out one of the books from the library.  It was my favourite thing to do. Many people would watch TV, or play games, but I found reading fun. I was trying to keep my eyes open, but then figured if I was reading and fighting sleep, I would never remember half of what I read. I closed the book, and closed my tired eyes. I felt someone come into the room and throw the blanket over me. Had to me by Cole or Chris, no one else came in here.

I woke up a few hours later; someone was knocking on the door.

"Nica, you need to get ready. The pack is nearly here." Eliza shouted through the door. I moaned and turned. Soon after I figured I would never get back to sleep. I threw the covers of me and stood stretching; I could not help the big yawn that escaped my lips.

Damn I over slept and my mates did not want to wake me. Typical.

I walked to my room, and opened the wardrobe. The Lock Hart pack, was going to meet the Weston pack, there was going to be a BBQ thrown in the gardens. Lock Hark is a sunny place, and I loved not freezing in the winter. The seasons did need a bit getting use to.

I was looking at my dresses in the wardrobe, stuck between the two. Cole came and placed a kiss on my temple, hands on my waist.

"That one." He said pointing at the one at a simple floral cocktail dress.

I smiled, and raised up to kiss him on his lips.

"You didn’t wake me up." I told him with a straight look on my face. I could not get angry with any of them.

"Sorry, you looked so cute." He said giving me a guilty smile. My heart flipped and I let my smile out. I walked into the dress, and moved my hair aside.

"Zip me up please." I said. He took a deep breath, shocked, but still zipped me up.

"What is it? You said it was urgent." Chris said, coming to the room breathing heavy. I had a confused look on my face. I looked at Cole, but he was frozen.
