It was a cold dark night in December, the snow was falling and being 3 weeks to Christmas, the woods were silent as they have been… Even as her yells for help echoed through the trees, no one was there to hear or help. The cries came from a girl, her name is Belle and she was in the woods looking for her little sister, Tara left the house yesterday around noon. Tara was the outgoing one of the family the who never took no for an answer, so when her father told her that the abandoned castle in the woods was off limits Belle knew where to find her. Only problem with that was the fact Belle didn’t know where the castle was, in the dark everything is harder to do; including keeping track of what rock and tree you come across. Looking around franticly Belle started to hear a howl in the distance she started walking faster as the sight of the castle got closer. The sight of the north tower or was it the south tower was a relief to her as she broke out into a run and not noticing the root that was lifted a little from the massive tree, she tripped and fell onto her front side. She lay there, starting to lose focus and heard the crutch of leaves then saw a wolf paw step right in front of her face. With that she passed out from the bump to the head. The howl of the wolf was Belle’s only memory and she awoke in a strange room, it was dark and there was a faint light outside the door that was cracked open slightly. She looked around as the moon provided enough light for her to see the rest of the room, she saw the beautiful brass and silver objects that decorated the room. The room was drafty like a broken window on a cold windy day, the musk smell in the air suggested that the house was very old and had seen its better days. With a loud thump the door swung open and a wolf stood there looking at Belle with a confused look. She walked toward the wolf watching his reaction, which never changed he looked at her and seemed as calm as she had ever seem a wolf act. She kneeled and lightly pet the wolf’s head and felt him seem to melt, “what are you doing to the masters pet?” she stood up quickly and looked at the older man standing in the door way. “I was just petting him… no harm in that” he looked closely as the wolf moved to stand in front of her and almost seem to be protecting her “this way ma’am” she looked as the wolf started walking after the man and followed curiously. “I don’t know how you came to get into the estate but I’m sure Jasper had a part. I’m sure the master will be unpleased that he was out the estate” she followed looking around at the painting on the wall “who is the master exactly…” the man stopped and looked back “Master Axel owns the town…” he turned and kept walking till they entered into a room and the man stopped at the door. “Master Axel I found another woman in the estate I think its Jaspers fault…” with that the man in the chair by the fire stood up and sighed “direct her to the East wing I will be there soon I must check on the other woman” the man nodded and led her to the other door. “Jasper come here…” with his tail tucked he walked over and laid at his feet, she walked to the room without another word and saw a door open and Tara laying on the bed reading a book “Tara?!” she ran into the room and say her sisters face light up “Belle!!!”. She jumped up and hugged her “I was so scared something happened to you, how did you get here?” Tara looked at the man and sighed “I don’t know exactly…” he stepped in “ma’am I must show u to your room u will have time to talk at dinner” she nodded. “Be safe Tara…” she walked out the door and down the hall, she looked to see a tall man come walking down the hall toward Tara’s room “Edwin?! Why isn’t she in her room?” “she stopped to talk with her sister master I’m taking her now” she saw the man look her up and down “ill show her to the room you get the dinner finished” he walked over and took her hand “pleasure to meet u.. I’m sorry Edwin never got your name I believe” she looked away and said quietly “I’m Belle….” He watched her blush and smile “shall I show you to your room?” she nodded and followed him to the next room down on the left and he opened the door “here you are if you need anything please don’t hesitate to let either Edwin or myself know” she nodded and with that he walked to the doorway “wait… Axel…. Can I ask u something..?” he turned and nodded “of course” “how did I get inside the estate..?” he looked at her and sighed “I’m not sure I was surprised when Edwin brought u in since he just brought your sister in a few days ago but let’s go eat ok?” she nodded and followed him to the dining room and looked at the spread of food that Edwin had made and heard her stomach growl “belle sit by me” she nodded and saw Tara walk in an scowl at her sitting to Axel's right where she was going to sit. “Edwin, 3 glasses or red wine if u please” the older man nodded his eyes shifting to Tara and then the master as he left the room to the kitchen. “Tara sit well eat” she sat away from them making a plate of a little food. Axel helped belle make a plate then watched her eat as he sipped his wine smiling. Tara growled eating quickly then chugging the wine “ill be in bed!” she rushed out the room and belle went to get up “stay and eat love ill go check on her” she blushes at the fact that he had just called her love as she sipped the wine and watched him walk out the room. “Tara! Come here now” she walked out with a bag “I demand u take me home or ill leave on my own” he simply nodded and lead her to the door “Edwin” he waited till the man walked out the dining room and sighed “escort her home and on the way home pick up the vet I think jasper is sick” belle walked out and looked at Axel “where is jasper...?” Tara turned her head “I’m leaving” she walked out to the car in a huff. “be safe my friend well clean up dinner” he left after getting his coat and then axel watched as the car went down the driveway “where is Jasper...” he looked at her seeing her tear up “I’ll take u to him” he walked up the steps and to the left toward a room at the end of the hall “here is the room” he opened the door to show Jasper laying on the bed not moving much. She walked in without a hesitation and sat by him “poor puppy don’t worry ill take care of u” she laid with him and rubbed his side as Axel watched her relax more and more. “I’m going to go do the dishes so u want to come with and make him something to eat?” she got up and nodded rubbing her eyes he watched as her tough outer melted away and she was as calm as the ocean after a storm. “axel I’m getting a little tired..” he looked at her and pulled her against his side “relax u can sleep in a little” she nodded and walked into the kitchen looking around to find something for Jasper to eat “axel can u come help me?” he walked in with a handful of dishes and set them down getting the pot for her to make jaspers food “here u are” she smiled and started getting the ingredients out “thank u” she started cooking as axel did the dishes and cleaned up the food. “when did u get Jasper..?” he looked at her and thought a moment “I got him when I was 10 so about 12 years ago” she smiled “your 22....” he looked at her” is that a bad thing?” “No I’m 20” she smiled. He went back to doing dishes smiling thinking about all the things he could give her... he would give her the world if she had given him the chance.... she finished the food then went to the room with the plate hearing noise in the room “jasper I got u some food” walked in and sees jasper and another wolf laying on the floor she sits on the floor across from them and set the food down she heard jasper growl a little “it's ok jasper its only me...” she reached over and lightly pet his head. The other wolf sniffed her hand and licked it moving closer to her almost in acceptance. She laid on the bed watching them sleep after jasper shared his meal with his friend “jasper I hope u feel better..” she fell asleep in the bed curled up under the covers. After awhile Axel walked in looking for her smiling to see her fast asleep and jasper on the floor resting then crawled into bed with her holding her close as she rests. “You don’t ever have to leave this bed... I’ll take care of u and I promise ill keep u happy...” he said quietly into her ear and kissed her cheek. 

The following morning she woke up still in the bed but she was in a long t-shirt and Jasper was on the bed next to her guarding her. She got up and walks out the room looking for axel... “Axel....” he came up behind her as she went to walk in her room “looking for me” he hugged her against him. She smiled and nodded “where is all my stuff?” he smiled “in my room” he kissed her neck and said quietly “so u can care for Jasper plus this end of the house is having electric and some hot water issues” she looked at him “ok” she pulled away and headed back to the room to get clothing as he heard axel walk in behind her “u can shower I put some more stuff in the bathroom for u..” she nodded and her relaxed reaction seemed to become a tough one and she walked to go to the bathroom when he stopped her “belle... can I talk to u then about something...?” she turned around and looked at him “I don’t want you to think that I’m forcing u to stay here cause u can leave.. I just want u to try enjoying it here I’ll get you all u need and I will keep u safe... but promise you'll stay until after the storm is over...?” she nodded and looked away “I’ll stay till the end of the storm then I’m going home and I don’t want to be bothered again please...” he felt as though she just broke his heart “ok..” he walked out the room and to the living room finding his liquor and downing 2 glasses... “I wish she knew how I felt..” she was in the hallway listening though the door “id die for her and she just wants to leave me...” he looked when she took a step back and bump into the wall “belle... is that u?” he walked to the door to see her there crying a little. “what’s wrong belle?!” he was scared and held her hands “talk to me love please” she closed her eyes and shook her head “you love me and I’ve been ignoring u...” he saw her legs shake and her face get pale “belle..?? Are you feeling dizzy?!” she nodded and shivered. He picked her up and carried her to his room and laid her on the bed “belle tell me what hurts” she pointed to her head and chest “ok u stay here” he ran to the bathroom getting aspirin and bringing it out to her and some water. “take this ok it will help” she took it then laid back waiting to feel the aspirin kick in. she slowly drifted to sleep, the whole time Axel stayed by her side only leaving when he needed a drink or to use the bathroom and even then he was within earshot “Axel...” she was looking at him teary eyed “what’s wrong Belle?”. “Do you really love me?” he nodded holding her hand “I think so...” she looked at the clock and sighed “you can go do what u want I just wasted your morning...”. He looked at her and smiled “I’m not going anywhere Edwin said the storm is going to be worse than we thought...” she looked at him then got up and looked out the window “can I use your phone...?” he nodded and handed her his cell phone watching her pace the floor worried “I need to check on my father....”. “should we pick him up and bring him here?” she looked shocked “really you would do that for me...?” he nodded “one condition though” she nodded “fine I’ll do anything..” she told her father that they were coming to get him and Tara “see u soon papa” she hung up and looked at Axel “they will stay in the other wing the issues should be fixed u will be staying here in my room and share my bed plus I want u to stay awhile after the storm...” she grinded her teeth and nodded “fine” she walked to the bathroom to get changed as he walked in “first thing is first please strip” she looked shocked he just asked such a thing of her. “What did u just say?” he walked to her and started lifting her shirt up over her head and then after it was off he threw it on the floor and looked at her body. “I just want to see you please...” she looked down and did as he asked stripping standing there embarrassed “happy?” he looked at her body and saw her face a light blush “may I do one thing?” she looked away nodding, as he walked close and ran his hands over her sides and chest lightly “letting clothing hide this body... it’s a shame” he went on his knees looking up at her then leaned in and kissed her stomach by her chest bone. She didn’t know why but for some reason she wanted to run her fingers through his hair and have him leave little kisses all over her body... “Axel... why do you like me so much?” he chuckled and stood up having her stand facing the mirror and he stood behind her and nuzzled in against her neck. “Your beauty is amazing” she looked at him feeling a strange urge to blush at him. “I think I should let you go shower now I’m sorry for wanting to see you like this.” she grabbed his hand “join me please” he looked at her and sat on the counter and smiled a little. “You shower ill stay right here till you finish” she nodded and got in the shower groaning as the warm water ran over her body trying to relax. “Tell me about yourself” axel was leaning against the wall with his eyes closed, she smiled “I am a student, and I work 2 to 3 jobs…” he looked toward the door “so much work for such a young lady”
