Blissful Day After

10.1K 556 97

I wake up to harsh blinding lights which causes me to bury my face deeper into someone's side. I open my eyes once again, to be greeted with Augustus's face.

The memory of last night washes over me, making me blush in embarrassment. That was the night I lost my virginity and I'm glad I will not die a virgin. Augustus was so gentle and patient with me, asking me over and over again if I wanted to stop.

My appearance has changed back to normal last night as well. Now I have my long black hair back instead of the short badass look.

I turn to lie on my belly, seeing his face. He looks like he is glowing.

"You're so beautiful," he murmurs, touching my face.

I rest my face on his chest. He hugs me tightly.

"I love you," I say.

I feel him kiss my hair. "I love you too."

We lie there in silence, enjoying the moment. It's just Melanie and Augustus. We complete each other like how a violin needs a bow to create music.

He's mine as I am his.

Never in my life have I ever thought that I would fall in love with one of the most hotheaded guy in my life. He's my everything. I need Augustus like I need air.

Nate and Gwen. I wonder if that's how Nate feels with Gwen. They are soul mates so they are each other's anchor for living.

Lisbeth and Caleb. They're not mates, but I can see genuine love radiating off them. Caleb would do anything for Lisbeth, even if she wasn't Athena's daughter. He won't let any harm come to her, including from himself.

Emma and Antoine. I did not spend much time with them, yet I know they're going to be okay. Antoine is going to be a great father and Alpha.

Rick and Cassie. I know Rick will die saving children as he will be a fireman. I told Nate this and I make him promise not to say a word. Everything happens for a reason. Cassie will have a hard time getting over her mate's death, but Nate's children will help her.

Wally and Celine. Even if they're humans, I know they are perfect for each other.

"What are you thinking so hard about, newbie?" Augustus asks, playing with my hair.

"Everything. Nothing."

He chuckles and rolls us over, causing me to squeak in surprise. 

"What do you mean by that?" he asks softly.

"I was thinking about life. Our lives. Other people's lives," I confess.

"My life is nothing without you," Augustus says seriously. "The first time I met you, I knew you were the one. You draw my attention even if you weren't realizing of it."

"I thought I hated you then. Because you were so mean to me. I thought you wanted the Director position that Thomas offered me."

"I was planning to take over and be Director actually. When Bibiana told me to stay away from Thomas, I knew it was something bigger. I apologize if I was an idiotic arrogant asshole."

A genuine smile appears on my face. "Apology accepted, Evolved Lizard."

Augustus rolls his eyes at his nickname. "What time is it?"

I look at the clock on my bedside to see the time. "Almost ten."

He groans and pulls me to him. "Too early to get up."

I laugh and poke his cheek. "We get to spend more daylight if we get up now."

Augustus sighs grumpily. "What about we just stay in bed and make love all day?"
