Kai’s been a little on edge the last two days and I’m wondering about that, but he’s also been secretive
and avoiding me, which I’m hoping is for a very good reason. I walk out of the bathroom, thoughts
whirling around in my head and stop
short. There, lying spread out on the bed, is an outfit, one that astonishes me as I walk over and pick
up the skirt and shirt, a smile on my face. He had to have chosen this out himself and that pleases me
more than anything. Is this for our date? Are we finally going on one? I’ve been waiting with anticipation
for it… 7
He’s listened to me when it comes to dresses then I think relieved. The skirt is gorgeous, a black
leather one that flows out from the hips and stops just above the knees. There’s a white plain camisole
to go with it but the jacket he’s provided stops me in my tracks. It’s leather, the same black as the skirt,
but short, ending at my hips. It’s one of the most beautiful jackets I’ve ever seen and I admire it greatly,
holding it up against my body, even twirling around in front of the mirror. It’s so beautiful but more
importantly I feel beautiful imagining myself in it. I can’t wait to try these clothes on, I think awed.
There’s a piece of paper on the floor and I scoop it up, knowing it must be from Kai. It must be a
message of some sort.
It simply reads “Date night tonight, get dressed and wait for me to come get you.”
Short but sweet I think, eagerly getting dressed and admiring myself in the mirror. Since I’ve arrived at
Kai’s pack, I’ve gained some weight and filled out my curves. My skin has started to tan, a golden
honey colour that brings colour to
my face. As I stare at my reflection in the mirror, I see a pretty girl instead of the one I used to
know. Its’ so astonishing how much I’ve changed, but it’s been for the better. I’m growing as a
person and becoming more like who I want to be, instead of the old Winter who was beaten and
tortured. I never want to be the old Winter, ever again.
You look smashing Winter. My god that man has good taste in clothes hasn’t he? Isn’t it beautiful
Sabriel? / wonder what he has in mind for tonight? I wonder where we are going?
Something tells me it’s going to involve dancing, or at least I hope so. We can get our jiggy on, dance
with him. Have loads of fun.
You’re weird but I love you anyway Sabriel. Love you too Winter, but in a different way to Kai. I love him
too. I think I might love him as well Sabriel. I think I do.
The door slowly creaks open and I whirl around, my eyes meeting Kai’s as he steps into the bedroom,
a smile on his handsome face, a bouquet of flowers in his hands. He holds them out to me as I gasp
and I eagerly accept them, sniffing their fragrances while my heart thuds loudly in my chest. He’s taken
the trouble to bring me flowers. I’m already melting and we haven’t even made it out of the bedroom
yet. Sabriel is purring in my mind. She adores the flowers as well. Purple
roses, one of my favourite flowers. How had he known? I think I only mentioned it the once and it was
I can’t help staring at Kai. He’s taken a special effort to dress himself in a suit today, black trousers and
white shirt with a suit jacket, but it makes him look even more masculine and handsome. His scars
stand out, but truth be told I
barely even notice them anymore. I hope he doesn’t get self conscious while we are out. I want
him to feel comfortable and have a good time as well. God, he’s so damn gorgeous and it’s like he
doesn’t even know it.
He gives me a smile. “You look beautiful” he tells me huskily as I glow at the compliment.
“Thankyou for the outfit and the flowers” I say quietly, My voice has slowly gotten better over the last
few days and although it’s still quite hoarse, I can speak a lot easier. It doesn’t hurt as much to either.
“You’re welcome. Are you ready to leave?” he asks and I look at him, wriggling my eyebrows and
making him laugh.
“Maybe, do you want to tell me where we are going?” I ask and he shakes his head slowly, a small
smile on his face.
“It’s a surprise” he says firmly, taking hold of my hand and I reluctantly place the flowers on the bed, on
the way out of the bedroom. Hopefully they dont’ die while we are gone.
He leads me down to the garage and opens the door to the nearby mercedes, helping me inside like a
true gentleman. I’m speechless. This is a side of Kai I’ve never seen before, but man do I really like it.
He shuts the door and makes his way over to the driver’s side, getting in smoothly and turning the
Ilean back against the chair and relax, enjoying the peaceful drive and the scenery as we go past. But
soon enough, we’re pulling into the city and I give Kai a questioning look. I’m not used to the nightlife
but he takes hold of my hand and squeezes it.
“I know you just turned eighteen a few months ago” he tells me quietly as I nod, surprised he
remembers “and it occured to me there’s a lot of things you’ve not had the opportunity to do yet. So I
thought we would go to a club I know, it’s the best in the city” he boasts and I laugh, feeling incredibly
nervous. I’ve never been clubbing but I know plenty of people in school had. It just seems to be so
I feel a slight sense of panic. I don’t know how to dance, what if I embarrass him? Or what if other
women try to take him away from me? Sabriel gets annoyed at that thought and i hastily cool her down.
He seems to be reading my thoughts.
“For what it’s worth” he says quietly, still driving, face gathered in concentration “I am not much of a
dancer either. We can look awkward together” he chuckles.
That makes me giggle. This could be fun. In fact the more I think about it, the happier l become. I might
not be of legal age to drink, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a good time and I hadn’t expected Kai to
think of something like this for our first date. He was really putting in the effort. Especially since I can’t
see him actually liking big crowds like this.
He pulls into a carpark as I stare at the building in awe. It has large neon lights pronouncing the name
“Club 666” and there’s a huge line of people waiting to get through the door. It’s going to take forever
before we can get inside, I. think to myself a little deflated. Kai opens the door and takes my hand.
“Let’s go have some fun” he says and I’smile, taking his arm and letting him shut the door. Oh well, it
will be worth the wait.
I fully expect us to both go join the back of the line but instead, Kai makes a beeline towards the
bouncer, a small smile on his face, even as I’m hesitant. What is he doing? We can’t just jump the line
like that? Already the crowd is muttering and I can hear angry voices which makes me cringe, even as
Kai drags me to the front of the line where the bouncer is waiting.
“Leo” he says startling me as he greets the bouncer. The bouncer is a large man, clearly a shifter,
muscled arms folded across his bulky chest, his head shaved and sunglasses on his eyes. He’s not
fooling around when it comes to security. He looks like he takes his job very seriously.
“Alpha Kai” the bouncer greets him with a smile as I look back and forth between them. They seem to
know each other, but I hadn’t thought that Kai would be the regular clubbing type, so what was going
on? Were they old friends from school or something?
“This is my date Winter” Kai introduces me and the bouncer shakes my hand, gently for someone with
such large hands. He seems to be a nice person, even if he does look a bit scary.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you Winter” Leo says. “Nice to meet you” I stammer back, looking helplessly at
He takes pity on me. “Leo is it cool if we go inside now? I want to get Winter out of the cold. It’s freezing
Leo gives him a wink. “Course you can” he says with a chuckle and shake of his head “I’m not about to
tell the owner he can’t get into his own club. I don’t have a death wish” he jokes, undoing the rope and
allowing kai to drag me inside. Well not drag, maybe gently tug me inside.
I’m in shock. I can’t believe that Kai owns a club. It’s freaking cool. As we step inside the interior of the
building, my eyes widen and my jaw drops open. It’s beautiful. It has the sense of luxury, with booths all
around the dance floor and tables, waitresses serving guests quickly. The dance floor is bright and the
music is loud, people dancing everywhere, their hands on each other, several others making out. The
atmosphere is bouncing and it’s clear this is a popular club. It’s totally wild and utterly cool. It’s also
making me feel completely out of my depth.
“I can’t believe you own this” I say slowly and he grins and gives me a wink.
“There’s lots of things you don’t know about me” Kai says as he steers me towards a table and sits me
down. “Trust me, I’m an enigma” he jokes and I giggle. He certainly is.But one that I was slowly getting
look around wide eyed, trying to take it all in. I;ve never been clubbing before and this is so exciting. My
foot is tapping to the music as a waitress approaches. I frown when she bends over to speak to Kai,
showing off her impressive cleavage and deliberately ignoring me. I feel snubbed. I also feel incredibly
angry while I struggle to keep my cool. Not that the b***h notices or anything.
Sabriel is ready to lunge across the table and send the waitress flying. Kai to his credit doesn’t even
look at the waitress but instead turns to me.
“What would you like to drink?” he asks politely as the waitress begins to look disgruntled, sneering at
me. “I’ll have a root beer please” I say and he nods.
“I’ll have a coke” he tells her and she walks off looking annoyed. Take that, I think to myself
triumphantly. Kai hadn’t even spared her a second glance.
“You’re not going to drink?” I ask uncertainly. He shrugs. “If you can’t drink, then neither will I.”
Then he sits back against the chair and observes me with those dark eyes of his, narrowing them as a
small smile appears on his face.
“Tell me Winter” he drawls as my heart skips a beat “what would you like to do now?”
