Sacrifice: A Nevaeh Novel (Hold)
Cc 2015 Aislinng Lore
"Don't you dare choose that human over me." He growled, bitterly, his eyes dull, almost tearing. "I happen to love that human very much." I spat back, irritated. How dare he try to threaten me? "He can't protect you." He pointed out. "I don't need protection. I'm capable of taking care of myself." He groaned, frustrated. "I know. That's not what I meant." "What do you mean then?" Of course he didn't reply. This was ridiculous. I turned to leave, fed up, but was frozen in place by his next words. " Wait! I ******* love you! I've always have. Can't you see how much I've sacrificed, how much misery I've gone through for you?!" His voice broke, going raw with his tears. He grabbed my face, cupping it gently, trying to make his point clear. "Doesn't matter. I'm still in love with him." I assured him, emotionless. "Now, I've gotta go." Before I could pull away, his lips crashed on to mine. "I always will love you." He whispered against my lips, his tone desperate.
