So I wasn't really sure where I wanted to take this story yet since many people have told me to continue it. This was just kind of a filler, but I've figured out a little bit where I want to take the story. For now at least, so I'm sorry for the short Chapter ^.^ Hopefully you enjoy.


The Walk of Shame

Despite being in a completely different world than humans, we still shared a lot of the same customs. Yes, including the oh so famous walk of shame. Even though I slept soundly wrapped in Dimitri's arms, I still dreampt. I think it was my mind's way of processing how we were going to explain being gone all night to the other Guardians.

Dimitri was only sent to get me first aid, and then we were supposed to return to our respective rooms. Dimitri in the guardian's wing and I in the student dorms. I'm sure we could come up with something; who was I after all? Rose Hathaway, the reckless novice. They'll probably think that I was still freaking out over what Jesse did to Li-...


And then it started again; that uncontrollable rage. Fire burned within me, fueling me. My head started pounding and if I was a cartoon, I'm pretty sure my face would be beat red and steam would be coming out my ears. I tried to take deep breaths. If I woke Dimitri now then he'd try and stop me from giving Jesse exactly what he deserves. A laugh started building itself in my throat but I stifled it.

I slowly moved Dimitri's arm from around me and replaced it with the pillow that was beneath my head only moments before. Using all my novice training I snuck towards the door. It took everything I had to not sprint out of the cabin, to not let my flaring frustration get the better of me.

I opened the door as slowly as I could, hoping it wouldn't squeak or creek.



"Rose, what are you doing?" He had a bemused look on his face. He thought I was embaressed about what happened between us last night.

"Umm..." I started fidgiting, dammit to hell. "I figured I'd get back to my dorm before the guardians noticed anything." It was a pretty solid excuse.

"Why are you shaking? What's wrong? Did something happen to Lissa?"

Calm Rose, just stay calm so that you can get to where you need to go.

"I'm just worried about her thats all. I haven't talked to her or seen her since the uhm... Incident."

My impatience grew.

Something changed in the way he was looking at me. It was as though it was finally hitting him what had happened last night. He stood up wearing nothing but a pair of silky black boxers and walked over to me.


Without hesitation he picked me up and began kissing me again but my anger did not ebb this time. It just kept growing, and growing. I knew it wouldn't go away until I finally rearranged Jesse's face... personally. But his lips felt so warm and soft against mine... maybe Jesse could wa-

No, Dimitri would not continuously calm me down simply by kissing me, so I used the same excuse I used earlier.

"Dimitri, we need to get back to the school... people will be wondering what happened to us."

He sighed as he pulled away and finally put me down.

"I suppose your right, look who's being the responsible one." He chuckled. We dressed, sharing a few stolen kisses and calmly I intertwined my fingers with his and led him back towards the school.
