Lupe sighed. All of the love and the soulmate couple stuff was getting to her.

One thing that she had always wanted in her life was for someone to love her. But of course, no one could love her.

She was a werewolf. Who could love a werewolf? No one that's who.

One vampire could.

She shook her head, she couldn't start thinking about that right now. So many vampires and telepaths in here. The people of Circle Daybreak were good people fighting for the right reason but they were a handful. They were a strange, deranged family of sorts. Lupe had seen how they invaded everyone's minds and used secrets they found to tease, blackmail and insult each other with.

If they knew her secret, she would never hear the end of it.

Jez and Morgead had left, something about ice cream.

The DJ had called for a short break, claiming he had to go to the bathroom again, the bladder on that man.

Lupe looked around, all of the soulmate couples looked happy. Even those without soulmates seemed at peace.

Looking around, she could see love directed to others. Some were new, such as Phil loving Iliana and the whole Val/Raven situation. Of course none would be as shocking as her secret.

The person that Lupe found herself falling for. They would have a field day with that one.

The DJ walked up to the stage. "Alright people, our next singer is Lupe, I think that's what this thing called writing says."

Poppy huffed indignantly and Lupe smiled.

Walked up to the laptop, Lupe sighed. It seemed to be a confession night for the Daybreakers and as she was a Daybreaker, she would have to confess something.

While she was sitting she had been thinking of what song to sing and she hadn't had the slightest idea of what would be best, but standing at the laptop, she knew the perfect song.

"Apparently, Lupe has feeling she doesn't want. Here's Hate That I Love You by Rihanna featuring Ne-Yo," the DJ said.

That's how much I love you

What secrets do you have, Lupe?

Ash, that's for me to know and for you-

To find out?

No, to shove up your ass.

Defensive. You don't want us to know do you?

What gave you that idea?

That's how much I need you
And I can't stand you

Lupe, why didn't you tell us?

What are you talking about Poppy?

You got yourself a soulmate.

No I don't.

Yes you do, I can tell.

If he was my soulmate, I would know.


Shh. Poppy, call down.

Must everything you do make me wanna smile

What's he like?

He's a fighter and that's all I'm telling you, North.

Boo, you're no fun. I'll find out anyways.

I know you will, sadly.

Can I not like you for awhile? (No...)

But you won't let me
You upset me girl
And then you kiss my lips

Lupe's mind started to wander. She had kissed him.

Once, but it wasn't something she often thought about, around other people.

It was on Valentine's day. Poppy had convinced Thierry to decorate the mansion in hearts, red, pink and white. Everyone was giving out cards and candies and the couples were going places and Lupe had been a bit put down.

She didn't have anyone.

Until she went to her room and found a long, red rose on her bed. There was a card next to it and on it was only one line written in fancy writing.

I don't think you'll ever know how much you mean to me.

That one line filled her with such happiness that she began to skip around the whole mansion, oblivious to the whispering and stares.

She had come across Nilsson in the basement training room, she had no idea how she had gotten there.

He asked her what had her so happy and she had responded in a way she normally wouldn't.

She walked up to him, only a couple of inches were between them.

She stood up on her tippy-toes and placed her lips on his for three seconds and then skipped out of the room and back to her own.

Lupe avoided him after that.

All of a sudden I forget (that I was upset)
Can't remember what you did

But I hate it...

She hadn't not being able to be alone with him anymore, it got too awkward. Sure when it was necessary on missions, they would talk but it was always strictly professional.

You know exactly what to do
So that I can't stay mad at you

Another rose had been delivered at the end of the day, she had seen it when she stepped out of the shower. A note attached to it. Thank you.

For too long that's wrong

But I hate it...
You know exactly how to touch
So that I don't want to fuss.. and fight no more
Said I despise that I adore you

Their predicament was weird. They had feelings for the other but didn't act upon them and no one else noticed. Add the fact that he was a vampire and she a werewolf. It made it weirder.

And I hate how much I love you boy (yeah...)

Come on, Lupe, you can tell us.

No, Quinn, I can't.

And why not?


That's not a reason.

Well it's my reason. So deal with it.

I can't stand how much I need you (I need you...)
And I hate how much I love you boy (oh whoa..)
But I just can't let you go





Lupe, I apologize on behalf of Poppy.

Thank you James.


Poppy, calm donw.


And I hate that I love you so (oh..)

You completely know the power that you have
The only one makes me laugh

She had been able to make him laugh once. Jez and Morgead were arguing one day and it was heard everywhere in the mansion.

Nilsson had walked into the living room and sat down on the opposite side of the couch. The T.V. was on and she was watching the movie Just Go With It.

"I wonder what happened this time," he had said.

"Morgead said something stupid and Jez overreacted," she responded.

"How long until they make up?"

"More like make out but I say Morgead will cave in about three minutes and kiss her."

True to her thoughts, three minutes later, the yelling stopped.

Nilsson laughed, "You sure you're not psychic?"

"No. They're just always like that."

Two minutes after that it started up again.

"DON'T KISS ME, IDIOT!" Jez had yelled.

"YOU'RE THE IDIOT, IDIOT!" Morgead yelled back.

Said it's not fair
How you take advantage of the fact
That I... love you beyond the reason why
And it just ain't right

Can you please tell me?

Rowan, maybe later.

Thank you.

You're welcome.


I'll tell you later, after I tell Rowan. Much, much later.


And I hate how much I love you girl
I can't stand how much I need you (yeah..)

Lupe, Maggie wants to know what's going on with you.

Tell her that I'll tell her when I tell Rowan, Delos.

Mare wants to know too.

She does or you, Ash?

Both actually.

Tell Mare that she can be there when I tell Maggie and Rowan.


Poppy stop talking about yourself in the third person.

Jade and Thea want to know too.

Jade, you and Thea can join too. You know what, girls night out, after this.




I'm kidding Poppy, you can go to.


But you have to remain calm for the rest of today.


That's not being calm.

I'm sorry. Is this better?


And I hate how much I love you girl
But I just can't let you go
But I hate that I love you so

One of these days maybe your magic won't affect me

Maybe one day, I can actually tell you straight up and do something about it.

And your kiss won't make me weak

She'll be able to kiss him whenever the hell she pleased.

But no one in this world knows me the way you know me

She grew up with him around her. She was always in awe of him for some reason.

So you'll probably always have a spell on me...

Yeah... Oh...
That's how much I love you (as much as I need you)
That's how much I need you (oh..)
That's how much I love you (oh..)
As much as I need you

And I hate that I love you so
And I hate how much I love you boy
I can't stand how much I need you (can't stand how much I need you)
And I hate how much I love you boy
But I just can't let you go (but I just can't let you go no..)
And I hate that I love you so

And I hate that I love you so.. so...

"Want to tell us who that was about, Lupe?" the DJ asked her.




"Why not?"

"It's personal."

"I guess."
