{Scarlett's POV}

I woke up to a hand trailing down my cheek. I gave Christian a goofy smile and he let out a small laugh.

"Good morning beautiful." He said resting his head on the crook of my neck placing a kiss on my mark.

"Good morning," I said smiling.

He wrapped his arm around my bare waist pulling me closer to him if even possible.

"Your scent smells even more amazing now. I just can't get enough of it." He said.

"Why? Because yours is mixed up in it and will ward off every male in sight?" I felt him grin into my neck.

"Why of course, love." He leaned back looking at me and pecked my lips and my mind drifted to last night. 

"Christian!" I giggled as he pulled me quickly down the hall. "What are you doing?! There is a party celebrating the coronation! And we're the guest of honor." 

"The party isn't important, but what is important is what I'm about to show you." he grinned, pulling me even quicker. 

I was glad I changed dresses, or else I would have tripped over my wedding dress I wore this morning. 

"Chris! Just tell me." I laughed as we ran up some stairs. 

"We're almost there, just hold on."

We reached a floor and he walked us to a balcony that was on it. After opening the doors, he walked us out. I looked around confused. 

"What are we doing out here?" I giggled as he pulled me to his chest. 

"I have a wedding present for you. Just a small one," he said and I frowned. 

"I thought we promised no presents?"

"I couldn't resist. Plus, it's super small." I rolled my eyes but couldn't help but smile. 

"Okay, fine, what is it?"

He pointed up and I looked up confused. "Huh?"

"I bought you a star."

"You bought me a star?! Which one?!" I looked eagerly and he chuckled pointing to one. 

"Right there." I pointed as well. 

"That one?"


"Chrisitan...that's so sweet of you. I love it."

"That way any time we're apart, you can always look up and we'll be looking at our star." I grinned, looking at him. 

"You're so cheesy."

"Only for you." he winked. 

I leaned up pressing my lips to his and I went to pull away but he deepened it, holding my waist so I couldn't back up. 

After a minute, he pulled back and his eyes were shining a bright gold. "Who needs a party?" he asked and I grinned. 

"Our room?" I asked and his eyes darkened. 

"Our room."

I squealed as he picked me up bridal style, marching us to our room.

"In the mood for breakfast?" He asked, pulling me from my thoughts.

"Sure." He sat up walking to the bathroom and I grinned snuggling more into the sheets.

It had happened. The mating ritual was finally complete and we couldn't have been happier I could still feel his hands roaming my body and his gentle, but hungry kisses.
