I woke up shivering. Where were the blankets? Even in summer, I liked to practically cook myself while I slept. The warmth was always comforting to me.

I saw a panicked Seth at the foot of the bed, holding them. Seth? Panicked? I wondered, mystified.

"Get a shower and get dressed. One hour, " he rushed, grabbing my hand and leading me to the bathroom. I sleepily stumbled after him. Seth practically threw me in, thrusting clothes into my hand before slamming the door shut.

Someone's feeling caveman-like I thought grumpily. Next thing I knew, he would be clapping his hands and jumping around at the concept of fire. I turned he shower on and waited for it to warm up. I got in and made sure to wash really well and shave. Hot water equaled paradise.

When I got out, I examined the clothes. He had given me black jeans and a pretty, red silk shirt. There were also black stiletto heels.

I dressed, but left the heels on the floor. I have a strict No Heels rule. Checking the clock, I saw I had another 30 minutes. I quickly dried and straightened my hair. As fast as I could, I put on some mascara, foundation, and lip gloss. Checking myself in the mirror once more, I deemed it good enough.

When I opened the door, Seth was standing on the other side. His gaze snapped up and his eyes widened before he regained his calm-and-cool composure.

"Here, " he told me, handing me a simple black bracelet and a ring. He turned me around and draped a necklace around my neck. The band of the ring was silver with miniscule diamonds, but the focus was the single black diamond. The carvings reminded of medieval times, and I couldn't help but gawk at the simple beauty of it. "Do you not like it?" Seth's silky voice floated into my ear.

"No!" I exclaimed. "It's beautiful! I don't fell like I should wear it…"

"Trust me, " Seth muttered. "You defiantly should. Put it on." I tried, but it didn't fit on my finger. "Try this one, " he chuckled, sliding the ring onto my left ring finger. It slid on like it was made for me.

"Wow, " I whispered, unable to stop myself from gawking at the pretty piece of jewelry around my finger. Then I looked at the necklace. It was a thin silver chain with another black diamond in a silver setting. It, too, was beautiful.

"Why aren't you wearing the heels?" Seth asked.

"I do not wear heels, " I told him. "Ever."

"Please?" Seth whined. It wasn't annoying, somehow. His whine was deep and hot, with a hint of playfulness. I felt my defense starting to weaken. "For me?"

"No…" My "strict rule" came out uncertain. So much for willpower.

"Just for today, " Seth

rah's place one day?"

"Most likely, yes. We were just making sure you were up to it." I swallowed hard.

"How soon before that am I going to have to…become part of your family?"

"You already are, " Seth interrupted.

"Officially."

"You are. Soul mates are family as soon as they're born."

"Marriage, Seth. On a piece of paper, in writing, saying that we are bonded politically."

"As soon as you feel comfortable with it, Eva, " Marshall answered. "Vampires believe that when two people are in love, there should not be a time limit to when they show that love in front of their friends and family."

I took a deep breath. "And after that, will Seth change me?" I asked. Marshall nodded.

"Will I have to go to public events?"

"Yes, as the destined Mrs. Valdez, you will be wanted to be interviewed and fawned over, " Seth explained.

"Will I have to dress up?"

"Yes."

"Damn. I mean, darn. Sorry, Marshall." Was I allowed to swear in front of a king? It didn't seem appropriate.

Seth's dad laughed at me. "It's quite alright, Eva. I understand."

"Enough questions, Angel. Let's get you some food." I didn't object.

He slung an arm around my shoulders and led me down the hall. Gah! Why were there so many halls?! I'll never be able to know where everything is!
