Just Because

I strode down the cream hallways, not taking the time to care who was watching as I flung door after door open in my search. Where is he? Where Is He? I found myself seething with uncontrollable rage, if she had harmed a single hair on his head...! I stop suddenly, my heartbeat slowed, and I stalked silently towards the door from which Her voice resounded. Carefully, ever so carefully, I inch open the door. The scene in front of me wasn't what I had expected. She was lying on the floor beneath a huge, golden cat. A jaguar. Inside my chest my heart leaped for joy, He's alright! However, my head hadn't left the scene in front of me. He can't kill her, but I already knew that. It's the reason I came. I slip into the room and glide to his side, his ear twitches telling me he has noticed my presence. I'm quick to motion for Jesse, a triste. He enters the room and makes short work of killing Jeshickah. Turning he leaves for his job is done, mine, however, is just begining.

Slowly, he turns back to his vampire form. He is still beautiful, with his obsidian black eyes, dark hair, and caramel skin. He has every bit the grace of the cat for which he is know. Jaguar, the only vampire to whom I am attached. Besides Nathaniel, who is like an immortal brother.

"Your free" I whisper, knowing he will hear.

"No, I'm not, because Jeshickah didn't have my soul" He mubles in reply.

"Huh? What do you mean?"

"I mean, I had given my soul to someone other than her, someone I care for deeply."

"Oh" I sigh. Turning I began to walk away, but Jaguar grabs my arm lightly, and says,

"Where do you think your going?"

"Home" I huff "Theres no reason for me to stay."

"Where ever you go, I'll always follow you, Audra Catherine Turquoise Draka." Jaguar says slowly as he pulls me towards his chest.

"And why is that?" I challenge, looking up into those beautiful black abysses.

"Just Because" He chuckles, as he leans in and kisses me.

The real answer was as clear as if he had really said it out loud.

"Just Because, I Love You"
