Chapter 9: What Todd wants
I tried to take in what Todd just told me. He said the words 'I want a child.' Goose bumps were suddenly on my arm. I was on the verge of tears.
"You know what I am, Adrianne. I heard you and my son talking, trying to think about what to do. The answer is....you can't do anything except let everything I do.....happen."
"But Todd...nothing." He ripped the covers from on top of my body and he was suddenly on top of me.
"Don't try to reach your boyfriend with your thoughts. He won't be able to hear them." He whispered as he kissed my cheek.
He pulled back to stare into my eyes. He opened his mouth and I saw sharp pointy elongated fangs. My eyes widened in fear. He grabbed my hands and pressed them down against the bed as he leaned to kiss me. I turned my head so that he couldn't but he forced his lips on mine anyway.
"Don't make this hard, Dri." He breathed.
"Fuck you." I said. He smiled and I noticed that my sentence had a double meaning. He wasn't going to stop. Not until he gets what he wants and what he wants is for me to give him a baby.
So many things mixed in my mind at once. "Get off of me." I tried pushing him away. He smiled at my weak attempts. "We can play this game all night, sweetheart. But I'm still going to get what I want." He growled.
"Please don't do this Todd. Please. Please. I'll do whatever you want just don't do this to me. Please." I begged.
With one quick motion, I was on my stomach. I gasped as I felt Todd breathing in my ear. "This is going to make us both, very, very happy." He whispered and I felt him painfully slide in. I let out a cry of pain and he moaned in my ear. "Shh." He whispered kissing my ear and then my neck. "Todd.......please." Warm tears escaped out of my eyes. "Shh. Just give me what I want, Dri. That's all you have to do." He said.
"No!" I yelled. His nails dug in my skull. I gasped in pain. "Stay quiet!" He growled. As he started sliding in and out of me, I can hear his moans echoing throughout the room. I closed my eyes. I wanted him to stop. It was hurting so bad. I had to somehow contact someone. Someone to help me.
'Mom? Mom? Kevin? Eric?' I asked in my mind. There was no answer. I suddenly felt something sharp go into my neck. I screamed out and clutched the sheets in my hand. Todd's fangs were inside my neck and he growled in satisfaction. His thrusts were faster and harsher.
"Stop." I cried.
His fangs disappeared out of my neck and went to the other side. I screamed again unable to say a word. He was taking so much from me. How could he do this?
Todd pushed in harder forcing a cry of pain from my lips.
He grunted as he thrusted in harder than ever. Eric was never this rough with me. He didn't make me cry out in pain every few seconds.
"Owww!" I cried. I felt some kind of wet liquid inside of me but I knew he didn't cum yet. It was coming from me. Was I wet? Or was it......blood?
"Oh! Adrianne." He moaned as I felt his cum spill inside of me. I buried my head into the bed as I realized what just happened. I continued to cry as he slid out of me. I was ashamed of myself. It wasn't my fault but I still felt guilty for all of this. Todd placed his hand on my back and rubbed it softly.
And it made me cry even louder. "I'm sorry I had to do that to you but I knew you would say no if I asked."
"Get out." I muffled through the covers. His hand disappeared and I heard his footsteps walk away. The door opened and then slammed shut. I didn't want this. I wanted Todd dead. I wanted his fucking heart to be shoved down his throat. He's evil and pathetic and a prick. I sat up slightly and pulled the covers over me and then laid down staring up at the ceiling with dried up tears on my cheeks.
My house has basically became Todd's house within days. He was alpha now and so whatever he says, goes. I forgot how he became alpha again. One second, I was alpha and the next, he is. It just didn't make sense to me. The door opened and Todd walked in the house with a satisfied smile on his face. Why was he so happy? He kissed my lips softly and then sat down in a chair. His shirt was messy with dirt and so was his black pants.
"Where have you been?" I asked. He shrugged. "Out." He flicked the tv on and looked at it with disinterest.
I knew he was lying. I smelled a scent. A very familiar scent of hazelnut and bananas. It was Adrianne's scent. Why would her scent be on him? "Where were you?" I asked again. He didn't answer. He kept his eyes focused on a commercial that was playing.
"Why is Adrianne's scent on you?" I asked. His eyes flashed with anger as he looked at me.
"Are you accusing me of something?" He asked.
"No. I just want to know why I can smell her scent on you." Todd got up and came over to me. He placed his hands on both sides of my face and stared deeply into my eyes. I felt a wave of dizzyness and lightheadedness. "Don't ask me another question tonight." He breathed. I felt the sudden urge to be quiet. Everything became blurry and flashes of images filled my head.
Everything stopped when his gaze left mine. I just sat down on the couch and kept myself quiet. Talking seemed wrong for some reason.
The dream stuck in my head even as I woke up and looked at my clock. Todd on top of me. Me screaming. It tortured me. There were footsteps walking towards my door. I closed my eyes. If it was Todd again, then it was too bad for me. I was too weak to fight it. The door opened and in stepped the vampire, Aeryn.
"Where have you.....?" He looked down at me and then around my room. He sniffed the air and his eyes grew wide. "He was in here. I can smell it." Aeryn snarled. I looked at him and didn't talk.
"Did he.......Did he do something to you?" He asked slowly. I didn't speak. I couldn't. I couldn't find my voice. He sat on my bed. As far from my body as he could be. "What did he do to you?" Aeryn asked. I stared up into the ceiling. Everything was hopeless and useless. I couldn't tell anyone. Because no one could help. Todd was too strong and everyone was too weak. He could kill us all if he wanted to. And I wouldn't be surprised if he did.
"Adrianne, what has he done to you?" I kept silent. As far as I was concerned, the vampire wasn't right here on the bed asking me a question that had an obvious answer to it.
The vampire sighed and got up. He stared down at me. "When you're ready to talk, you know where to find me." There was a blur of color and then he was gone. I was pretty frightened at the sight of Todd. Seeing him in my mind.
I pulled the covers off of my body and slowly got up. I clicked on the bathroom light and looked down to see blood slowly trailing down my inner thigh. I closed the door and turned the shower on. I wanted to wash every inch of my skin that Todd has touched. I scrubbed my body and washed my hair repeatedly and my face. I cleaned everywhere repeatedly but I still felt dirty. I dried my hair off and wrapped myself in a towel. I got back in my room and threw on some panties. A shirt and some bed pants. I climbed into bed and went to sleep for the night.
When I woke up the next day.....I felt it. I could feel it in my veins. In my skin. In my blood. I was pregnant. My mother explained how I could feel it the next day if I was pregnant. She told me how I'd feel. And I could feel it. And since Todd was the dad, I'm pretty sure he could physically feel it also. I sat up in bed and looked down. I slowly lifted my shirt and touched my stomach and closed my eyes. I could feel the connection I had with the baby already. I let out a soft sigh and opened my eyes to see Eric standing in my doorway. He let out a small smile.
But I didn't smile back. I couldn't. I was pregnant with Todd's baby and my boyfriend was not aware of it. "I'm sorry about yesterday. I was being a dick as usual." He slowly walked in and sat on the bed a little too close to me. I scooted back a little. He looked disappointed at my sudden movment but smiled slightly. "I want you to forgive me. I was just unhappy. That's all but if today....you still want me to fuck you....I'll be more than happy to." He leaned over trying to kiss me and I scooted away again. He sighed. "What did I do now?"
I ran my fingers through my hair and just shook my head. I looked down at the sheets. Eric sighed and and reached over to touch me. I flinched away.
"What is wrong with you? What did I do, Dri?" My head snapped up and I glared at him. "Don't call me that." I growled. He looked hurt by my sudden snap at him.
"Adrianne, talk to me.....what happened? Did I do something to piss you off besides what happened yesterday?" My eyes glittered with tears. I couldn't tell him. It would hurt him too badly. I couldn't bear to see hurt in his eyes.
"Can you leave?" I asked. Eric looked shocked. His eyebrows raised and his jaw dropped. He reached over to touch me but I snatched my arm away.
"Don't touch me." I whispered glaring into his eyes. His eyebrows pulled together. "I'm sorry." He sounded like he was begging. "Just leave, Eric. Please. Let's take a break. Okay?" He looked confused, upset and angry all in one facial expression.
"You want to break up?" He asked.
"I said take a break."
"What's the difference?" He asked before he slowly turned and slammed the door shut as he walked out. I sighed and laid back in my bed and turned to the side. My throat felt dry and my stomach rumbled. But I didn't want to eat. I couldn't. My heart beat was fast and hard as it slammed against my chest.
'Come here. Now.' Said a voice in my head. I knew the voice the second he said the first word. He was the alpha so I had no choice but to obey. I pulled the covers off of me and climbed out of my bedroom window. I landed in the dirt and began to walk towards the main pack area. It's dangerous to shift when you're pregnant because of all the changes that goes on throughout your body during the process. Once I arrived at the pack area, everyone but me were in their wolf form.
The wolves eyes looked to me like I was a stranger. Todd wasn't in his wolf form, he knew the reason I couldn't be in mine. He smiled at me and I quickly looked away to look at the golden and black colored wolf looking at me.
'I called this meeting for a reason' Todd said telepathically. Perhaps so me and the wolves could know what he was saying and so he could hear the thoughts of those around him.
'There's a vampire lurking in the woods. As I've been told that he comes here occasionally to try to start some shit with people in this pack. But after tonight, that's going to change.'
What was Todd talking about?
'We're all going to take him out.' He demanded. My eyes grew wide. Why would he try to kill his own son? What was he up too?
'You prick'. I growled in my mind. Todd looked at me with a smirk on his lips.
'Looks like soon, you won't have a partner in crime.' He made it so only I could hear his thoughts.
'Partner in crime? What are you talking about?'
'Using my own son against me is a bad idea because you're about to get him killed.'
'You're killing him because you don't want him to kill you first.'
'He can't kill me. No one can. Whena re you going to get that into you beautuful, intelligent, brunette head?'
'Go fuck yourself'
'No....fucking you last night was way too much pleasure.'
After that reply, I stopped and stayed out of his head. I didn't want to hear anymore. I've learned to be scared of Todd and he took joy in that. I just didn't know what to do.
