Eleanor’s POV

                Louis was standing by the television trying to choose a movie for us to watch. I heard someone walking down the stairs and saw Harry. I smiled at him and he gave me a small smile. “So how did it go?”

“I didn’t talk to her. I couldn’t wake her” he said sitting on the small couch. I frowned. “Even if I did wake her, what am I supposed to say? She is so scared of me. She hates me.”

Louis sighed placing the DVD into the player and walked back to sit next to me. “Ellie does not hate you Harry. When I was talking to her she said she loves you. She is just hurt because you kept a part of you hidden away from her.”

“What was I supposed to do? I couldn’t just walk up to her the first day of school and say ‘Hi, I’m Harry. By the way I’m a demon and you are my soul mate” Harry said sarcastically waving his hand in the air.

“No, we know why you didn’t tell her Harry” I told him crossing my legs onto the sofa.  “Just go and talk to her, tell her everything she will understand. You just have to tell her the whole truth this time because you can’t hide from her now.”

Harry sighed heavily and rubbed his face with his hands.  He stood up “Fine, I’ll go talk to her” he murmured under his breath and headed back upstairs.

Elizabeth’s POV

                I felt something poke my shoulder and I swat it away with my hand and rolled over onto my side. I felt a hand shake my shoulder and I groaned. I stretched and rubbed my eyes with the back of my hands. I blinked a few times trying to adjust to the light and I saw Harry standing next to me beside the bed. I sat up and looked at him.

“What are you doing here Harry?” I asked him eyeing him up and down, I looked at the clock and it was 3:00 a.m in the morning. “It’s three in the morning Harry. What are you doing here at three in the morning? Plus I told you to leave me alone” I yawned.

He gave me a small smile then bit his lower lip. “I know, but I just couldn’t leave you alone until you heard the entire truth.” He eyed me warily.

I sighed giving in. “Okay, go ahead Harry. Tell me everything and I promise to listen. I just can’t promise that I will like what you have to say” he nodded at me. I scooted over and patted the empty space indicating him to sit down and he obliged.

Harry leaned back against the headboard crossing his arms over his chest. I looked at him and bit my lip.

“I’m sorry”    I whispered and he turns to face me.

“For what?”

“For what I said”

“You didn’t tell me anything I didn’t know” he said looking at me with tinted green eyes.  “Alright, I guess now I’m going to tell you everything. Whatever you choose to do after you hear all of this information is up to you” he sighed and swallowed looking a bit nervous. I nodded at him.

“Obviously, none of us are human.” He said pausing for a minute. “We are fallen angels, except for me but I will get to that later. When you are and angel you are given two necklaces, one for you to wear and the other for whoever your mate is .The reason why we fell is because there is someone down here on earth that is waiting for us. However, when I fell there was no one waiting for me. I knew that there wasn’t because I still had the other necklace with me, which is the one that I gave you” His eyes looked down at my neck and his face held a bit of sadness noticing that I wasn’t wearing it anymore.

“I put it away” I whispered biting my lip breaking my gaze from him.

“I didn’t understand why I fell neither did the lads. When your mate isn’t ready for you yet you aren’t supposed to fall. We spend a few years trying to figure out, trying to find out what was wrong with me. Until one day, i got into an argument with Louis and things got out of hand. We were all stressing out because we didn’t know what was going to happen to me and I snapped at him. I felt so much anger towards him, it’s as if I was a match and the fire quickly started to spread all over my body.” He stopped and shook his head sadly. “I pinned him to the wall and hit him a few times, Liam tried getting me off of him but he couldn’t, none of them could.  I was so much stronger”

Harry looked down at his hands that were placed on his lap. I watched as he knotted his fingers together. “I tried remembering what happened but its all blank. After I calmed down Louis told me that my face changed. My eyes were red with black and my teeth sharpened. I couldn’t believe what he was telling me. A few days later this guy named Dominic shows up at my house and tells me that he can give me answers. We started to talk and he told me that I was a fallen angel but since I fell and no one was waiting for me I turned into a demon. Many angels have heard a stories  about this type of thing happening but it hasn’t happened in so long that it was hard to believe that it was occurring again. After I found out what was happening to me I went to go live with Dominic and his clan, which are all demons as well”

I blinked at him trying to process his words in my head. “So if you were staying with Dominic, how did you end up back with Louis? Why did you come here?” I asked my voice coming out breathless and wary.

“I stayed with him for a couple of years and I was killing for the fun of it not caring if that person had children to go back home to. I just kept on thinking about that blood; it’s all I craved for. I didn’t like who I was becoming. I was an angel and all my life I knew that one day I’m supposed to fall and meet my mate and live together forever. That is why we don’t age.” 

I nodded. “Okay, but what does this entire thing have to do with me? If you didn’t have anyone waiting for you, how did you find me?”

“When I realized that I didn’t like who I was becoming, I had to find a way to change. Dominic told me that demons are impossible to love and to receive love. However, for some reason I still wanted to look for it and so I left. Dominic wasn’t too happy about it because I was his friend.  We were the ones that were in charge and were the most powerful. I came back and told Louis everything and he understood what I wanted, so he told me that he and the lads would help. That’s when I moved here and started to go to school. ” Harry said leaning away from the headboard and lay on his back starring at the ceiling.

“That is when I saw you.” He said a small smirk plastered on his face. “I saw you and it felt like something broke inside me. I didn’t know what that feeling was, or what to do with it. Louis told me that there was the possibility that you could be the one that I was looking for which is why I started talking to you. I felt like I had to protect you from everything that was around you”

“Is that why you went looking for me when we went on the class hiking trip?” I asked and he nodded. “How did you find me? Is that also why you were acting so weird when we barely arrived and you were starring out into the woods? Did you know what that thing was out there?”

He nodded. “Yes, I knew what it was and where you were because of this” he said reaching his hand under his shirt and pulled out his pendant that was hanging on a silver chain.

I tilted my head to the side scowling at him, confused. “You told me it changed with your mood, that’s why it changed when I touched it. Plus, you still hadn’t given me mine yet”

“It does change but it changed because it’s connected to you. I didn’t know that until I gave you yours” he said softly turning his head to look at me and I looked back down at him. This does not make sense to me.
