Excerpt from Awakening


My eyes rose to meet his eager blue eyes. I hadn't heard his approach and I was too busy chastising myself to pay attention. He was on his knees at my feet. I attempted to embrace him, yet his hands ceased my movement as they encased my wrists. He held them at arms length, his eyes searching mine.
"Lukas said you wanted to start over?" His statement was a question. "So I will start over for you. Consider my question differently. Wear my ring and be with me because you love me, because you cannot live without me. Be with me because I make you happy, because I drive you crazy. Be with me because you cannot imagine a day without me. Josephine, be with me because I only existed until I found you after centuries of searching. Only you. För evigt."
Stefan pulled a ring out of his pocket. His mouth parted, his tongue nervously swiping across his lower lip. He took my left hand in his much larger one, stroking the skin tenderly.
"If this were during my human life, our union would have been arranged between our fathers to strengthen the village. It is not those times, yet I still want to ask you properly. So I ask you again. Ska det finnas en ände för oss båda, en obligation efter våra löften, inte heller skall vårt första kärlek planlöst förgås. Jag ber om din hand är min kompis, min älskare för evigheten. Vara med mig."
Choking back tears, I could only whimper. I knew in that instant that this was right and I'd been crazy to reject him because of my silly ideas about his obligation. "Translation, please?"
He smiled; his chiseled face had that unarmed, child-like expression again. I imagined this is what he'd look like if he were still human, kneeling before me. "Josephine, there shall be one end for us both; one bond after our vows; nor shall our first love aimlessly perish. I ask for your hand to be my mate, my lover for eternity. Be with me."
He offered the ring to me. A beautiful emerald cut diamond ring sat nestled in his large palm. It was set in platinum, the delicate band surrounded with rubies.
Hesitantly, I reached out to touch the ring. "Stefan...it's too much."
"Is that another no?" Stefan hadn't moved from his knees.
"Yes, I mean no. Yes, I'll be with you," I mumbled. I watched as he slid the beautiful ring on my finger. It twinkled, the red rubies gleaming almost as brightly as Stefan's blue eyes as they watched me.
Without warning, I was surrounded in an instant. His solid arms and a warm wall of muscle pulled me into a rough embrace. His enormous frame swallowed me up, making me feel safe, desired and most importantly, loved.
