I'd like to thank everyone who reviewed this story. Your reviews are the single most important thing to keeping my fan fictions going.


(Chloe's point of view)

I was exhilarated to the point of restlessness. I knew I would need sleep, tomorrow would be my first day of training, the first step to learning to control my powers, and even better, I would learn to not only control my necromancer powers, I would learn the ropes of being a werewolf too. These thoughts whirled around my head keeping me from falling asleep.

"Chloe," Tori murmured barely awake. "Quit moving around, you're keeping me from sleeping."

"Sorry," I muttered rolling onto my back and closing my eyes trying to stop my mind from wandering again.

I laid there for what seemed like hours until I heard someone move in Derek and Simon's room. Tori was fast asleep so I didn't worry about her complaining as I crawled out of bed and walked into the hall.

Derek was making his way down the hall toward my room. He stopped when he saw me and smiled coming up beside me.

"What are you doing awake?" He asked scoldingly, but with a smile.

"Can't sleep," I told him. "What are you doing up?" I asked him reaching up to give him a quick kiss.

"Going to get a snack," He lied.

"Kitchen's that way." I told him pointing down the hall in the opposite direction he had been coming from.

"I was coming to check on you." He told me frowning down at me.

"Why do I need checked on?" I asked suspiciously. Nothing was going on here that required him to check in on me while I slept.

"I heard you tossing and turning and I just wanted to make sure you were okay." He said gruffly.

"Okay, well as long as were 'getting snacks'" I said using air quotes. "Why don't we go together?" I finished smiling.

"Sounds like a plan." He said smiling and throwing an arm around my shoulder. We walked as quietly as we could down the stairs and into the kitchen. "You sit." He told me pointing absentmindedly toward the table. I obeyed and found a seat by the long wooden table.

"What's on the menu?" I asked finding patters in the grains of wood.

"How does granola bars sound?" He asked pulling a box from the cupboard and pulling out four of the bars handing me two.

"How come you get the chocolate chip ones and I get peanut butter chocolate chip?" I asked eyeing the bars in his hand.

He grunted something under his breath and swapped me one of his for one of mine. "Thank you." I said moving over and sitting on his lap. I felt his lips on the top of my head before he pulled a chair over right next to his and sat me on it.

We ate our granola bars and talked about what we thought tomorrow would bring. After we were done eating neither of us felt like going to bed, so we went into the living room and I curled up against Derek while we watched TV.

I woke up in his arms as he carried me back to bed. His beautiful green eyes turned to mine and we just sat there, looking into the depths of each other's eyes.

After what seemed like hours but was probably no more than a few seconds he sat me down in front of my door. "Good night." He murmured kissing my forehead gently.

"I love you." I sighed.

With that he walked away, back to his room where Simon slept, soundly snoring.

I sat on my bed after that and lost myself to my thoughts

This is why the Edison group needs to be destroyed once and for all. I thought. I will not have them hurt him anymore. And with that last thought I fell into a dreamless sleep, preparing for whatever would come at me next.


Okay, so that's the end of this story. Sorry the chapter was so short. I will be doing a sequel called Hybrid. That one will have a little less romance and more action but don't worry, the Chloe and Derek moments will still be there in slightly smaller proportions. Hope you liked this one and will read the next.

P.S. It might be awhile until the sequel comes out because I want to wrap some of my other stories up as well.
