4.6I stroke the white horse I am riding lovingly before getting off. we are currently at the river, the one called flowing souls. Such an eerie name for a beautiful river. I move towards the bank, where the hands of the water caress the soft bosom of the land. I feel the water rush forward and stop just in front of me, kissing the tips of my shoes. I close my eyes and think of nothing but happiness. The first time I went hunting with him, my jayjay. The feel of his hands on my body, the fire in his eyes when they roam over my body, that lust, that desire. The way he laughs, the way he adores me, that is happiness. Just then, I catch a weak scent of blood in the air. It is appetizing, my stomach churns and makes loud noises, and my legs take off of their own will in search of food. There's blood everywhere. I am covered in blood. A man lay in front of me pale as ash, his hands clutching his neck, eyes bulged out in terror. But I feel no guilt, none at all. My eyes widen In pleasure. JayJay wouldn't approve of it, but this is what we are. His ideas are Noble, but you can't deny your nature and still be you. Humans have never denied their nature. They give in to their pleasures and cravings all the time. Animals are slaughtered for their satisfaction, as food. How is that any different from what I have just done? I lick my fingers, enjoying the scent of the drying blood on them, he was truly a delicacy. This part of me is a part he will never see, never. ################################### After what felt like an eternity, I began to feel it, the cold, but it was just my heart that felt it. The other parts of me became numb, I didn't feel anything or hear anything or see anything, just the cold in my heart and the darkness, the black sea. I didn't go inside it, I sat at the bank of the sea and listened to the silence of the water. I knew the thoughts of the black sea, I could feel its consciousness, its desires and fears, it feared me, so I sat and watched. Then a lady with white flowing hair approached me, she had on a white wedding dress, she was beautiful. She stood at the mouth of the sea, where the water kissed the land and she beckoned to me, but I didn't see her, I only saw the silence and the black sea. "you have to accept me in" she says with a cocky voice. "why" "why? I am the power, I am the beauty, I am the awakened, you are nothing without me" "you're wrong" I say, standing up and turning my back to her. I walk a little distance then stop, "you're nothing but a restless voice who needs me to exist" and I was gone with the wind, back to where I belonged, back to the arms of my loving boyfriend and his best friend.

Gauhar Siddique had it all, a smile that could dazzle any onlooker and dark eyes that gleamed with resolve. A facade that hid everything that she felt, sounds perfect right?

Except for one thing. ••••••••••••••••••••••• The wind blew wisps of her copper brown hair on to her face. I instinctively leaned down to move them away from her face. But before I could touch her, her long lashes fluttered. I immediately moved away, her sharp eyes, dark as the midnight, opened to behold me. I didn't want to be caught doing what I was about to do. Because I knew very well how much my very presence disgusted her. I watched in fascination as she stretched her arms, the loose sweater she had on, slipped down, revealing her delicate shoulder. I usually hated unkempt people, and I despised slovenly people. But right now I loved how she looked in her disheveled state, I felt a strange feeling in my stomach as I beheld her my heart beating faster than normal. Perhaps it was because of jogging up here. It has to be, that is the only rational reason. Unless... Her eyes widened as her bleary gaze registered my presence, her posture stiffening and her expression hardening back to what I was used to. How I wished she could smile at me as delicately as she did when in the embrace of slumber. She quickly sat up and pulled her sweater on her shoulder. A faint blush dusting her cheeks. I felt a tug at my heart, she was extremely pretty. But could she ever be mine? Gauhar raised an eyebrow at me cooly, and I realized I was staring at her like a fool. She tucked the a wayward strand that had escaped her loosely plaited hair behind her ear. "You're back." She observed, looking none too happy about that fact. I sat down on the bean bag in front of her "So it seems." My lips turned up into a grin "You seem a little disappointed, were you expecting something else?" Her dark eyes lit up with fire as she turned her nose up in disdain "Anything is better than having you as a companion." Her voice was cold but still it managed to burn a hole in my chest. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••• PS: The beginning of this book is super slow, because you guys gotta get acquainted with the characters, but I promise it'll get Interesting as the story moves on. And be warned this is a slow burn novel so if your expecting instant fireworks and sparks...this is not the book for you.
