Both of their eyes watered.

“I missed you, so much.”

“I missed you more, my darling, so, so much more.” He tightened his arm around Evelyn's petite body and rested his head against hers, taking a moment to enjoy the sweet, and long awaited reunion.

Evelyn's heart pounded in her chest as she stared at Ethan, her hands trembling and her eyes stinging with tears.

She couldn’t believe it, he was there, he was really there in front of her, in flesh.

After almost a year of torment by Zayn and giving up her freedom for his, Evelyn thought she would never see the love of her life again, that they would forever be parted by Zayn… that they would never be reunited.

“I can’t believe that you’re here.” She whispered, her trembling fingers reached for his face, hesitating while doing so, afraid that he would deteriorate into a pile of dust like that vampire who he just killed.

Realizing her intentions, Ethan smiled and pulled her hands towards her face. “You don’t have to be scared, it’s really me, and I’m here, with you, where I'm meant to be.” He said through tears of joy.

“I-I-I just…”-

“I just can’t believe it?” He finished her sentence for her. “I know exactly how you feel, I feel the same way. You have no idea how many often I dreamt and fantasised of seeing you again, after all this time, all the torture and pain, I still can’t forget you. My love for you haven’t lessen the slightest, and seeing you here right now worth all of the tortures that I endured during the past year.”

She frowned. “Tortures? What are you talking about? I thought Zayn released you to some Country in Europe or a continent far away from here after I exchanged my freedom for your family’s?”

Evelyn's confusion didn’t surprise Ethan. He’d never put it past Zayn to lie to Evelyn in order to make her feel like he’s some kind of a good guy with a heart when in reality he’s a monster in human skins, soulless monster who only loved himself. However, despite the scenario to be just as he predicted, he couldn’t help but grind his teeth in anger at the fact that Zayn had been lying to Evelyn and making her believe that all of her sacrifices were in the exchange of his happiness when he was nowhere near happy, living in the Royal Dungeons, beaten and tormented everyday to the point of almost death only to be brought back by the vile vampire blood.

“Evelyn, there’s a lot of things that Zayn haven’t told you…” said Ethan. “But now isn’t the time to explain it to you,” he gestured to their surroundings, bombs were still going off in the distant, and the hurricane of witches were nearing where they stood.

Though they were  fair distant away from the buildings, and all the servants were inside, taking shelter and fearing for their lives, Ethan had no doubt that soon, the gardens would be flooded by guards and soldiers, ready to put up the fight of their lives.

“Come on, we need to go to somewhere safe. We wouldn’t want to be caught in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the vampires!” Ethan pulled her protectively into his arm. “I’ll explain everything to you as soon as we are safe.”
