First off, sorry about all grammar/spelling mistakes! I post right after I write it up and it's usually at like 3 in the morning x)
Second, I was sad I only had 4 reviews on the last chapter. Like seriously, you don't know how much a simple word like 'Great!' affects me! Please take 20 seconds and just review :P
Anyways, on with the story!
During the show, I looked down and noticed a sleeping Chloe in my arms. I smiled and just took in the site of the girl in my arms. How could I have gotten so lucky? I just resumed watching the show until it was finally over. I nudged her a bit, trying to wake her up. She didn't wake easily. She grumbled a quick "Hmm?" and readjusted herself, closer to me. I laughed and nudged her more.
"Chloe, as much as I would love to stay in this position with you Jasmine may come home soon." I tried getting myself up, sliding away form her. She yanked my arm and pulled me back down. I sighed. What did it take to get this one up? I noticed how she was basically in my lap now, her head on my shoulder and got and idea. I grabbed her face in my hands and kissed her on the lips. For a second it felt like we were was going to be sitting there all day, but then she started shifting and finally kissed back. I smiled as she wrapped her arms around my neck, effectively pressing herself closer. She pulled her hands away from my neck and I thought she was going to stop the kiss, I was wrong. After she pulled her arms away, she pushed my shoulders making me lie down onto the couch. She ended up straddling me, making both of us quite comfortable.
Not that I didn't like what was happening, but it was just going to slow for me. I ran my hands from her hair, where they were to her waist and squeezed a bit before flipping us over. I was now on top, in between her legs and kissed her harder than before. I felt the vibrations from her throat on my lips and smirked. I stopped kissing her, in need of air. We both were breathless as we stared at each other, so close and I loved it. I loved her. I moved my hand from her waist to her outer thigh and started kissing down her jaw line. She arched her back, pressing herself into my chest and I held a moan from coming out. I ended up falling right at her collar bone and bit down the slightest bit. I felt her press further, if possible and her hand move from my shoulder to my face. I looked up at her, and she grabbed my lips with her own.
After a full kiss, we both sat up fixing our appearances. I was thankful Jasmine wasn't home right now, she ended up leaving again. Something about another meeting. I stood up and glanced at my phone. It was 10:45, I thought we could both use a coffee.
"Do you wanna grab some coffee?" I asked her.
"Sure!" She said sanding up too. I wrapped my around around her and kissed her on the cheek. I tried pushing one thing that's been nagging me all morning to the back of my mind. Leaving.
After we grabbed a coffee, not acting like a couple we decided to just walk around for a bit. I was randomly picking through my bag and found that box I found like 1 week ago. I snatched it and grabbed it out of my bag. I rolled it around in my hand until Alek noticed it.
"Ever open it?" He asked taking a sip of his coffee.
"Nope..." I sighed. We kept walking and he reached over and grabbed it from me. I was about to grab it back but he opened it. There was a note. A freaken note.
"I promise you, you will be dead before you can stop us..." Alek whispered and I stopped walking.
"Wh..What?!" I shrieked. He looked up quickly and his eyes were wide.
"Chloe, it's what the note says. They killed you once, but I won't let it happen again." He walked closer to me an placed his hand on my free one. "Okay?" I just nodded. I saw him look around and look back at me. He leaned down and kissed me on the lips. I kissed back for a second and pulled back.
"You aren't going to be able to protect me for long." He looked confused. "You still have to leave unless we...Well, you get the point." I was proud at myself for not blushing.
"You know how much I want to stay, but I can't do that to you!" He told me whisper-yelling.
"I know...Can I ask you something?" I had to ask him one question that was burning my mind on this subject.
"You just did." He smirked. I gave him a pointed look. He smiled and nodded.
"Are you...Are you a virgin?" I couldn't stop the blush this time. His smile fell and he sighed.
"No, I'm not. It was with Mimi, last summer and it was a mistake..." He trailed off. I couldn't say I was surprised. He turned around and started walking away.
"Alek, it's okay! I'm not mad, I mean can we didn't really know each other." I told him, walking after him. He stopped and looked at me, he looked sad. I placed my hand on his cheek. "It's okay, Alek." He smiled, but he still looked sad.
"Chloe, if I could I would trade it all to make my first time be with you." He said, holding my face in his hands. He kissed me before I had a chance to respond. I pulled away and smiled at him.
"Then, you'd be waiting for a while." I laughed and he finally loosened up and laughed too. He kissed me on the cheek and lingered there for a moment. We started walking again and walked for a while until his phone rang. He answered it with a "Hello," and stopped walking. I stopped a few steps ahead and turned around to him.
His face was filled with pain and so much hurt, I could only think of one thing to make his face like that...Jasmine.
"This cannot be happening!" Alek yelled as we raced back to the Penthouse.
"Alek! Alek, please calm down!" I chased after him, as he moved faster. He wouldn't tell me what happened, he just started running. I knew it had to be Jasmine though. I finally caught up to him and we were already in front of the apartment building. "Alek!" I yelled at him. He spun around and looked at me. This was the first time I could say, Alek looked scared.
"Jasmine was attacked! Again!" He moved closer to me and yelled at me. I was sure he didn't mean to yell in my face, but he did. I cringed when he did yell though. He realized what he did the second he did it. "I'm sorry, Chloe but we have to get up there! She's hurt." His voice cracked. Alek was being torn to bits right now.
I raced into the building with him and we took the stairs. He knocked on the door until they answered, and almost broke the door down when we went inside.
"Where is she?" He asked. He was starting to scare me. I walked over to him, but remembered I couldn't really do anything in front of all of the Mai in the room.
"In her bedroom," Alek was off and I followed. "She's trying to rest!" The male Mai yelled. Alek opened the door and ran to her bed. He knelt down and I took a look at her.
She had a swollen lip, her left eye was black and almost sealed shut it was hurt so bad. She had a splint on her right arm, probably from defending herself and she looked okay besides that. I felt so bad for her.
"What happened?" Alek practically yelled at the poor, beat up Jasmine.
"Alek!" He looked at me "Maybe you should let me and her talk." I told him, nodding towards the door.
"Chloe, I can't just-"
"Go," I said quietly, but he knew I meant it. He sighed and stood up, taking her hand in his.
"I will find who did this too you, Jas." She merely nodded. She looked so helpless, never a position I pictured her in. She was always so strong. He gave me a glare and walked out. I was hoping we wasn't really mad at me. I sighed and walked over to her, sitting down beside her on the floor.
"Jas, I don't even know what to say. You look so...So helpless. I wish I could've been there for you." I looked down. She moved her head towards me.
"I was doing it for us, Chloe." Her voice was still very strong, as always. "The meeting ended and as I was walking home, they just attacked. I'm fine. Bruised up, but fine." She whispered.
"Jasmine! You are not fine! Your eye's swollen shut!" I didn't yell, I whispered. Just maybe a bit loudly. I stood up and looked at her.
"I'm sorry, Chloe." I heard her voice finally break. "I let you down." I was shocked she would say that.
"No, Jas. You have been so strong. Too strong. I look up to you. You have protected me from the beginning and now you're hurt." I said sitting back on the floor.
"I didn't just let you down! I let everyone down! You, Alek, my mom!" She sat up and sobbed.
"Awe, Jas!" I shot up and hugged her. She sobbed into my shoulder and let it out. At least, she was finally letting it all out.
"My mom told me I would take over everything, and I already failed her. I was attacked int he middle of the day, in an alley! She would have never let that happen." She said in between sobs. My heart broke for her. I just continued to rub her back and try to soothe her.
"You aren't your mom, Jasmine. You're you. You are going to be great, I'm sure of it. If you ask me, you're already doing great since you fought off-How many were there?" Her crying lightened and she lifted her head a bit. I saw her smile, even with her lip.
"There were eight and there five by the time I was done." She sat up.
"See! You were amazing, even if I didn't see it! So, you got a few cuts and bruises, you still fought 'em off!" I told her smiling. She smiled the best she could and wiped her face off with her left hand.
"Chloe, why are you being so nice to me?" She asked suddenly.
"I'm being nice because you are my friend, Jas." I nudged her slightly and she laughed lightly.
"Then you should know...You're my first friend. Beside's Alek, I haven't really talked to anyone else." She said looking down. I smiled again.
"Then I'm honored. I would love to be your first friend." She looked up and gave me a smile too. I pulled her into another hug until we both heard a small knock. We pulled apart and looked up. It was Alek.
"You guys alright?" He whispered. I looked at Jas, who was looking at me. We laughed.
"We're great. I think Jas here needs some rest though." I stood up.
"I would really appreciate it, if I could." She looked at Alek. He sighed.
"Alright, I'll see you tomorrow. Get some rest Jasmine." And with that we both left, shutting the door behind us. He looked down at me, then at the living room full of Mai. He grabbed my hand and pulled me into his room, shutting the door behind him again.
"Alek?" I asked curiously.
"I am so sorry, Chloe." He wrapped me into a hug and I was buried into neck. As strange as it sounded, I loved his scent. I fell into him and wrapped my arms around his waist.
"Don't be, you almost lost her. Again." He pulled away. He just stared into my eyes, I was wondering what was going through his head. Then he kissed me. I wasn't really expecting it, but I responded fast. In our haste, we made our way to his bed without realizing it and fell with an 'umf'. We both laughed and sat up, but he pulled me into his lap. He placed his hand on my cheek and rubbed his thumb across it.
"What you did with Jasmine, was amazing." He said looking into my eyes.
"I just told her the truth." I said looking down, blushing. He pulled my face back up.
"Chloe, I talked with the Mai." His face dropped after he said this and I was slightly confused. "I have to leave still. They just won't give me a break." He dropped his hand to my waist and sighed. I didn't want to picture my life without Alek. Not now, not ever.
"I can't lose you. I won't let it happen." I said moving myself closer to him. He looked at me with wondering eyes. "There is one way you can stay, Alek." I said kind of scared, but I think I loved him. Just like I though I loved Brian...I thought to myself. I wanted to hit myself in the face when I thought that.
"Chloe, I can't-We can't. I won't put the pressure on you like that." He told me and I could hear him start to stutter a bit.
"I can't let you leave." I pushing myself and him onto the bed, but he resisted. I sighed and stood up. "It's the only way you'll be able to stay." I told him, getting angry.
"Chloe, it's not that I don't want to I just can't put you through that." He said, reaching for my hands. I shook my head and backed away.
"Why not? No one wants you to leave, so why can't we just make you stay?" I said with my eyes itching with tears.
"I can come visit anytime I want, I just can't be apart of this pride. If I could stay I would." He moved closer.
"But, you can stay!" I cried. I felt one tear run down my face.
"It's not that easy." He sighed and went back to his bed. I stood there until I couldn't take it anymore. I ran into his lap and he wrapped me in his arms.
"I can't lose someone again! Either can Jasmine!" I sobbed into his shoulder.
"You won't lose me, I'll just be gone for a little more time than usual. You always wanted to to leave you alone, right?" He cracked a joke.
"So, not the time! No, of course I don't want you to leave me alone, Alek!" I looked at him and held myself from slapping him.
"It'll be okay, Chloe. I promise you I will always come back home." He kissed me. We pulled apart and I crawled into his bed with him. He held me as tears streamed down my face and I played with the hem of his shirt. I ended up falling asleep in his arms.

Thank you 'soccersinger' for the idea on Jasmine (:
REVIEW! (READ BELOW)
***Okay, I'm stuck. Right now, I have a feeling you guys are bored with my story. I ended my other one, so this is the only one still in progress. First off, I don't know what to do with Alek. Should I have him leave and have a chapter without him, or should I have him leave and fast forward a month or something? It's up to you if I keep writing. I won't leave this story completely, but I'll update really slowly. Please tell me ideas and what I can do for this story. Also, I didn't want to do this, but I may have a 'Review Goal' for each chapter so I know you guys still want me to write. If you hate me, stop reading. Simple as that. If you still want me to keep going tell me what to do and how I should direct this! I hope you don't hate me though o.o***
