[Xaviers POV]

A chilly wind swept through the air, and she shuddered a bit and snuggled closer to me while I tightened my arms around her; trying to keep her warm as she pressed her head closer to my chest, her heart beating rhythmically in sync with mine.

My eyelashes fluttered as I finally opened my eyes, defying sleep. It was dawn already, and soon, she would wake up to smile. Hopefully, she wouldn be regretting our one night stand. I wasn very good at calming people down.

The memories of last night flashed through my mind, and for the first time in a very long time, a smile found its way to my lips. Most days, I minded my business, but when I had seen her being taunted and sexualised by rogues, I hadn been able to keep my anger in and for the first time, I had gotten myself involved in someone elses business.

Rustling. I heard rustling among the bushes, but for a moment, I thought it was probably a squirrel. However, when I heard the sound of it again, I knew better. That was definitely not a squirrel.

Placing her gently on the makeshift bed, I stood up and grabbed my trousers which was hanging on a tree. How the hell had it even gotten there in the first place?

Pulling them on, I paused for a while and listened carefully to the sound. I couldn hear it anymore, but I could perceive an old familiar scent I would remember anywhere.

”So what if they find out? I can go now. You shouldn have come, ” I told him.

He had a worried expression written clearly on his face. He opened his mouth to say something, but hesitated and stood at akimbo, appearing to be thoughtful.

”What about him? ” I asked, urgency ringing in my voice.

”He is home. He came back home, ” he told me, and I could see as sweat trickled down his forehead even though the weather was really cold.

”Hes back already from reaching a truce with the Dark moon pack? I thought he said he would coming back in two days time, ” I said.

”Thats what we all thought, ” he said, his voice broke a little.

I ran my fingers through my hair, pacing around as I thought carefully. ”Hell call me a useless troublemaker again, wouldn he? Anyways, that won make me go home with you now. Theres a maiden here. I can leave her all alone, ” I explained.
