Adrian was at the office at 7AM on Sunday. He was determined to get as much work done as possible. He had fallen behind after getting distracted by Eva.

He didn't sleep too well again last night. He couldn't get her out of his head. The mate bond was slowly driving him insane.

He was proud of the progress he had made with her the previous day. It was small, but it was a beginning. He was already calculating on which date would be the most appropriate to kiss her.

The great Adrian Miller was fussing over a human girl.

He would tackle anyone a million times if that allowed him to spend another five minutes with her.

Something tells me Evan wouldn't be down with getting shoved onto the concrete 5 million more times he thought amusedly.

Adrian walked into the elevator and saw Lana's head of brown curls when the doors opened. She waved lazily and turned to walk to her office. Instead of walking to his own room, he ran to her and wrapped his arms around her waist, lifting her off the ground.

"What are you doing? Put me down!" the sibling ordered, horrified. Adrian ignored her and placed a kiss on the crown of her head. "Get off me!" Lana demanded.

He finally dropped her on the ground with a boyish beam. "What in the world has gotten into you?" Lana quipped and straightened her skirt.

"I just wanted to show you how grateful I am to you for making me watch your horrifyingly terrible chick flicks. They came in handy after all."

She raised her eyebrows, offended. "Terrible? Those were masterpieces," she countered.

Adrian laughed and ruffled her hair like he used to do when she was much younger. Lana was quick to step away. "What is wrong with you? I'm seriously starting to miss the boring, serious and brooding Adrian."

Adrian realized that she was right. He was acting way out of character. The world no longer looked so greyscale.

He walked into his office and began to work. His mate's face motivating him to get things done.

Eva looked in the mirror for the 70th time that evening. Albert was supposed to arrive five minutes from now. She was both excited and nervous to see him.

All she thought about was him while she was at work. She worked at a restaurant. The cute security guard consumed so much of her thoughts that she nearly handed a customer a plate of ketchup instead of the steak they ordered.

It was finally time to see him again and she was quite literally buzzing with anticipation.

He told her that he was taking her to a restaurant. She had no idea what kind of restaurant it was but she was hoping she wasn't overdressed. She wore a tight black dress and matching black heels. The dress didn't show much, but it hugged her curves nicely. She really wanted to impress him.

She was wearing minimal makeup and had curled her hair. She hadn't curled it in so long that she had to watch a YouTube tutorial to figure it out.

She ran to her phone when she heard a notification go off. She was expecting it to be Albert. The smile dropped from her face when she saw that it was a text from Sam. She had completely forgotten about him and the check.

She sighed, deciding that she would go see him tomorrow. Before she could reply to the text, her phone started ringing. The smile returned when she saw it was Albert.
