Genre: Paranormal Romance
The sun felt like a warm embrace as it hit Laina’s skin. It had been so long since she was free to move around in the sunlight. The wind felt like icy fingers brushing against her face as she took a few more steps into the bodied realm. After being locked away from this world for so long, she had almost forgotten what it even was. When its refreshing memory came back to her finally, Laina sank into it with a grateful smile.
“One day Laina.” Rain was glaring at her from where he was standing, leaning against Sanctuary‘s wall.
Laina just smiled. She wasn’t always afraid of Rain. Lately though, her feelings towards him had changed along with his actions.
“I mean it Laina. Lotus only gave you one day to do whatever you want. If you’re not back by-”
“This time tomorrow. I know. I know. Now may I go, Rain?” She started braiding her long chocolate tresses as she waited for him to give her the freedom she was craving. Once she had thought being sixteen forever was the greatest thing ever. After a few centuries though, that feeling had worn off.
Rain ducked his five o’clock shadowed head and mumbled something that Laina couldn’t understand. Before she had a chance to ask him; Rain looked up. “Fine. Just remember.”
As soon as his raspy voice reached her ears, Laina nodded and started running as fast as her legs would carry her. Every step she took brought her one step closer to where she longed to be.
