"SHE'S YOUR WHAT?" Blaike asked with a loud voice.

As I stared at Elias with shocked eyes my heart began to flutter annoyingly causing my face to heat up. Was he finally accepting me as his mate? Was he loosening up and giving us a try? His eyes never left mine as the room remained quiet. I could just imagine everyone's thoughts right now.

I turned around to view my family.

"H-how is that even possible? You are human!" Nathan blurted out. "Well...were human."

"Well, it is pretty unusual, but it does happen sometimes," my mother said.

"But now you're a vampire. How does that even work?" Blaike questioned.

"To be honest, I have no idea," I muttered underneath my breath.

"So are you guys a thing, because y'all look cute together," Saphira exclaimed with a smile on her face. She winked at me causing my cheeks to heat up again.

"This is unbelievable," Nathan sighed before storming out of the room.

"Nathan!" I followed him out of the living room and into the kitchen.

"You never answered Saphira," he sighed before taking a seat at the table.

"We're not currently together, but you know..."

He groaned before placing his hands over his face. "Why?"

I walked towards him and embraced him from behind. "I'm sorry Nathan. I really am."

"It's fine. There's nothing I can do about it anyways. I'm just hoping I'll find my mate soon too."

My heart ached thinking about Nathan with another girl.

"Ahem." I released my arms from Nathan to see Elias standing at the doorway.

Nathan looked up and rolled his eyes. "I should probably leave you two alone."

Nathan got up from his chair and walked towards the door. "If you hurt her in any way, I will kill you," he said furiously while sticking his finger in Elias' face.

Oh my gosh.

Elias nodded his head before Nathan left us alone. He slowly walked towards me as I slowly sat in Nathan's chair.

"So I'm your mate now?" I curiously inquired.

"Yeah, I guess so."

By looking at his face, it was evident that he was scared. I had this urge to give him a hug, but obviously, it would've been awkward and not appropriate, so I didn't.

I stood up and took a step closer to him.

"Stop worrying. Everything is going to be ok. We'll be ok. I'll be ok."

"You don't know that."

When was he going to stop being so hard on himself?

"I do because-"

"Hey, uh sorry to interrupt, but Leilani I think you should drink now. You know, to regain a bit of strength," my mother exclaimed as she walked towards the fridge.

I moved away from Elias and stared at my mother as she brought out three clear packets filled with a crimson red liquid.

"I want to see this," Blaike exclaimed with excitement.

I turned around to see the rest of my family enter the kitchen. You have got to be kidding me.

My mother rested the packets onto the kitchen table and stepped away.

"Marlon was able to get blood, um so yeah. Drink up."

*Marlon is the pack doctor.*

I took the first packet and hesitantly held it in my hand. Here it goes. I ripped the top off and began to drink. The liquid tasted like heavenly nectar as it trickled down my throat. It was so damn good. After I finished my first packet, I swiped away some blood that was trickling down my chin.

I suddenly heard a loud noise which caused me to look quickly towards my family.

"I had a feeling he would faint," said Saphira as she stooped down to attend her still mate.
