In honor of Nobody's Angel making 200, 000 reads, here's a new chapter for my amazing fans! I was seriously jumping up and down and screaming like an idiot, guys. My dog looked at me like I was insane, but I couldn't find it in myself to care.

I don't mean to go on a big spiel, but I started off writing as a curious 11 year old. I was eleven guys! And now I have 150 fans? 200, 000 reads on a book I wasn't even gonna show anybody because I thought it was stupid? Where would I be without my amazing readers?

You guys are amazing. I love you all soooooo much! <

My eyes widened at Eva, who bravely stepped in between the two creatures and pushed them away from each other roughly. Her eyes were tinged with red in a unique combination of red and her naturally dark blue eyes. Her skin remained tan, depicting that she was in more control than her husband or my mate was.

I had been too afraid to step into the middle of the shaking, snarling males, and I feared for the girl whose body was still midst of adolescence. Her six foot height didn't look nearly as tall as she stalked between the two giants, unstable in their anger. Her arms were small and dainty, but she'd somehow been able to force them apart a step or two. She glared at them, her gaze flickering from her right to her left, disapproving each in turn with her eyes.

"You, " she turned towards Seth, giving Xavier her back. Seth stiffened at her trust, but Xavier didn't so much as glance at her, keeping his gaze targeted on Seth. "Calm down. Look at me Seth Valdez!" He tore his red glare from Xavier's challenging stare to look at her unwillingly. "I'm fine. Remember that they are our allies. They're our friends. Okay? I'm going to help her whether it makes me uncomfortable or not, not only because she is associated with the demon race, but because she is human and is scared. I know all too well what that feels like."

Her last sentence caused him to regain control over his less tamable side, his skin returning to a healthy bronze color and his eyes fading into bright green that matched the grass outside perfectly.

"I'm sorry I couldn't protect you from him, Angel, " he whispered, pulling her close for a sweet kiss. Xavier's arm wrapping around my waist made me jump. When I looked up, his inner demon had also retreated.

"Let's move this into the living room?" Eva suggested. She waved her hand around. "This is just a formality to appease the guards. They worry too much about anyone coming into the castle if they don't live here."

"Thank you, " Xavier nodded. "That would be lovely."

We were led by the two amorous vampires into a roomy living room with leather couches, much to the apprehension of the guards waiting outside the door of the ball/throne room. Eva avoided their 'ifs' and 'buts' with an innocent smile and tinkling laughter, assuring them that they "had nothing to worry about whatsoever" in an airy, convincing voice. In a last ditch effort, they looked to Seth for confirmation of her choice. His firm nod and stern eyes made them back down instantly. They made an amazingly persuasive team.

"The notes, please?" Eva asked once again. She was seated in Seth's lap while he rubbed soothing circles into her thighs with his thumbs, resting his chin on her shoulder. Xavier and I faced them in a small love seat, our legs brushing against each others. I took great comfort in that touch.

"I actually burned the first, " Xavier admitted, rubbing his neck uncomfortably. He cleared his throat. If I didn't know any better, I would've said he was a little bashful about his mistake.

"Understandable, " Seth supported.

"Can you at least remember what it said?" Eva pleaded, eyes begging us for the critical information.

Xavier cleared his throat again, glancing at me out of the corner of his eye hopefully. He had nothing to worry about. Those words were burned into the back of my mind for what I was sure was going to be the rest of my life.

I recited the poem to them, Eva's elegant handwriting scrawling the words across a piece of paper as fast as I said them.

"Roses are red, Violets are blue, I know about Ivy, And she will die too."

The vampire princess's hand shook as she wrote the last line, obviously disturbed by the threatening literature. Her face had gone a little green, but she composed herself before Seth could question her again. I suppose she told him something in their minds because he frowned at her, but continued to rub soothing circles more meticulously than before as if determined to give her as much comfort in the simple action as possible.

"And the other?" Eva asked shakily.

Seth handed over the note I hadn't even seen yet. I didn't know when he had gotten it, but Jonathon must have handed it off to his son when I wasn't looking. Eva unfolded it slowly, holding it lightly with the tips of her fingers. I was surprised to analyze that her fingers did not shake at all, contrary to her apprehensive, almost—but not quite—fearful expression.

She didn't react when she looked at whatever was on the note, fueling my curiosity.

"What is it?" I broke the silence.

Eva glanced up at me, her eyes shifting quickly from the note to me. "You haven't seen it?"

"No."

"Why's that?" she demanded, turning her attention toward Xavier. "This is obviously addressed to her. Why wouldn't she see it?" Her voice was swiftly increasing in volume and pressure until I was sure she would stand up and confront my mate in a closer proximity. She remained seated in Seth's lap, though, albeit on the very edge of his knees. He noticed this and dragged her back so her back rested comfortably on his broad, silk-encased chest. She relaxed against him compliantly.

"I didn't want to alert her, " Xavier explained, his eyes flickering between us girls. Then to me, "And then we…and I couldn't bring it up at such a time, Princess. Surely y

ld have to add is that in the first note, he threatened you and the other two girls, as well as it being childish to possibly ridicule you being Willy's mother. In the second one, he was clearly making a jab at Xavier and Lord Jonathon with the crown. If he sends a third, I would assume it would refer to someone else."

"Any guesses on who it may be?" Xavier asked.

"I would say someone close to the castle. He doesn't have to live in it, but it's likely. He certainly knows quite a bit. To know Felicia's nickname! That's borderline obsessive. He's either close or has been around a long time."

"Well, that's enough sadness to last me a couple thousand years, " Seth exclaimed, standing up. "Let's go have a drink, Xavier. The girls can do as they wish around the castle. But no leaving the grounds, Angel, " he warned, fixing her with a knowing frown. She grinned back innocently. "I want you inside the gates surrounding this property the entire time, Angel. Got it?"

"Little ol' me?" Eva batted her eyelashes at him. "Why, Seth, you wound me with your lack of confidence, dear."

"This coming from the girl who stole my motorcycle when you had the dark fairies over."

"They wanted to ride it, " she smirked, shrugging. "They never had reason for one with their wings."

"And that excuses it?"

"I don't know, darling. Does it?" She laughed, trailing her fingernails up his chest.

"You little hellcat, " he growled, snagging her waist forcefully and smashing her tiny body against his monstrous one. She didn't flinch, seeming to take his strength effortlessly. "You have a condition. Be grateful I'm letting you out of my sight."

"I'll make it up to you, " she cooed, standing on her toes to reach his ear. "Tonight."

He growled, pushing her away. "Come on, Xavier, " he snapped, taking his frustration out on his friend. He stormed out of the room, not caring that no one followed him.

"Still as tightly wound around your finger as ever, I see, Eva, " Xavier chuckled.

"If not tighter, " she giggled in response.

"You infuriate him, you know. Let him take care of you every once and a awhile, alright? It drives him crazy how much you get away with."

"He should learn some resistance, then."

"Xavier!"

"I should go before he tears my throat out, " Xavier rolled his eyes. "I'll be checking in with you, Princess. If you don't respond or block me, I'll be coming to find you and you'll get the lecture of a lifetime. Understand?"

It was my turn to roll my eyes. "Yeah."

"I mean it."

"Uh-huh."

"Princess…" he warned.

"Yup."

He growled, appearing next to me in a flash of fire. He kissed me fiercely, his lips forcing mine to reply. Contrary to my earlier confidence, I sagged against him helplessly, holding onto him for dear life as I endured his searing kiss.

"Respond to me when I call you, " he demanded, his smell of wood smoke, marshmallows, and spices sending my senses delirious. I could do nothing but nod stupidly.

"Don't you teach her anything, either, " he warned Eva before disappearing in his cloak of flames.

Eva turned to me, grinning evilly enough that made her look like she could fit in the demon realm naturally. "Now, we can have some fun."
