Alice

I took a shower later that night, the pain still on my mind. The emptiness I felt wasn't full emptiness. It just felt as if something that was once a part of me was now gone, leaving a vacant spot, hence the empty feeling. After showering I looked in the mirror and noticed that my skin was brighter, my eyes no longer has bags beneath them, and I looked...younger than I did before.

I conjured up a plain black t-shirt and leggings, planning on teleporting back home into my own bed. Ramsey had cleaned up and stripped the sheets, leaving it in a ball in the middle of the bed so that the maid could wash it in the morning. I put my hair back into a ponytail and a question popped into my head.

"Hey, Ramsey." I called out as I exited the bathroom. "I have a question." Ramsey was sitting on the chair Damien was in an hour ago and he looked up from his phone, brow raised.

"Uh, oh. I know that tone of voice." Ramsey started, standing up. "Listen, I know you don't have your memories and all, but we agreed that no one falls for each other." I frowned, confused as to why he was saying what he was saying.

"What? That's not-"

"No, no, shh. Don't confess. I know what you're about to say." Ramsey said, walking over to me. He put his hands on my shoulders. "Dick is too bomb and you want to keep me locked up as your sex slave. Well, I have to say it was nice while it lasted, but-"

"Shut up!" I laughed when I saw the twinkle in his eye as he joked. He chuckled and reached forward to wrap his hand around my ponytail, letting the strands travel through his fingers before he let go.

"I'm just messing around. What's your question?" he asked, getting serious. He dropped his hands and led me to the stripped bed, sitting on the edge. He patted the spot next to him and I sat down, trying to formulate my question.

But before I could open my mouth, The door banged open and both of our heads turned to the door to see Mellie rush in, out of breath. Her curls were pulled back out of her face by a headband and I could see the top of her black wings, though they were folded slightly against her back, as if she didn't have time to fully retract them.

"Raven?" Ramsey frowned and stood up, and one of the memories I'd seen earlier came back to me. Before Ramsey became my human, when I was shown that Roman was his brother, and Mellie his sister-in-law. "What happened?"

"Mellie, what's wrong?" I asked when she didn't answer right away. She looked directly at me, eyes wide with fright.

"Roman kidnapped Alesandro."

Her words felt like a punch in the gut and for a second, I couldn't breathe. I was frozen, my brain trying to comprehend what she had just said. Roman kidnapped Alesandro. My son. Without saying a word, I sprinted forward, pushing Mellie out of the way as I ran out the room.

"Alice, wait!" I heard her call out and I slowed to a walk, not stopping. "You don't have to panic. Eliezer is on his way." Anger flared up inside of me and I whipped around, blinking for a second because I didn't realize she had caught up to me.

"Don't tell me not to panic when your psycho husband has my baby." I growled, and she held her hands up. "And what is Eli going to do that I can't, huh?"

"Do you know where he is?" Eli's voice sounded from behind of me and I turned to find him standing in the middle of the hall, a few feet away. "Do you have a plan?" He asked, those blue eyes drilling into mine. He was wearing a plain white shirt and dark jeans, and his usually neat hair was wild, as if he had just gotten out of bed.
