Last night, after Amanda had that horrific dream, she decided to sleep again but found that she couldn't. Her mind raced, her adrenaline pumped, and her heart doubled its workload at the mere flash of pictures in her mind of that grotesque scene.

Fear gripped and chilled her and it was nowhere near detaching itself despite knowing Cord wouldn't do such a thing. She trusted him. She was certain she was safe with him, but a part of her—that witch part which screamed defense—made her want to keep her eyes open the rest of the night.

It was only at the strike of five in the morning when her eyelids drooped and finally, she allowed herself into the world of dreamless sleep again.

Cord, after stealing a last glance at her sleeping form, left the room with Jonathan replacing him.

"Good morning Ms. O'Malley, " he greeted when he first saw signs of the woman waking up two hours later.

Amanda, after orienting herself of the time by glancing at her cellphone screen, sat up. Thirty minutes before nine, it read.

"Good morning, Jonathan. Has Cord already left?" she asked, wanting to make sure if the inadvertent culprit for her lack of sleep had left.

"Yes, Miss. He didn't want to wake you, so he left without saying goodbye."

"I see. Just like yesterday, " Amanda mused. She rubbed the sore spot of her right hand and remembered what happened last night.

Before having that frightening dream, she remembered two nurses telling her they needed to take the intravenous line out. With a nod, one nurse did it and now, Amanda was finally free of the constraining material.

The patches attached to her chest were also taken out, making her look exactly like an ambulant patient ready for discharge.

The first thing she thought of after all such connections left her was, finally, she could go to the comfort room without needing Noman to assist her. That was exactly what she wanted to do now and so she stood up, but not before asking Jonathan a vital question.

"Had you rest well?" she asked, pointing her attention to him, who now stood at the threshold of the balcony door.

"Yes, Miss, " was Jonathan's quick reply. "And I had my ration this morning if you know what I mean."

Amanda knew alright. She just couldn't bare to actually speak it.

"You don't need to worry about me attracting your nurses for it, " Jonathan furthered.

This made her chuckle unintentionally.

"You're a blunt one and a joker too, " she remarked.

"Says my North Wing buddies too, " he shrugged his shoulders. "Well, I'll be off to my post, Miss."

Amanda nodded, "You do that, " she said just as she rounded her bed and went for the bathroom door.

It was past ten minutes when she emerged from the bathroom all fresh from a bath with a few droplets of water running down her shoulders.

She expected the room to be empty, or at least not nurse-related, but she was dead wrong.

"A pleasant morning, Cait, " said a familiar stranger who leisurely sat in the leather seat. A pleased grin was clear on his face as he stood up and made a grand bow in front of her.

"Mat—" Amanda uttered but quickly paused after seeing him place a hushing finger against his mouth. She rolled her eyes heavenward.

But of course, it was typical. He didn't want for a certain someone outside the balcony to notice him. But how had Jonathan remained so oblivious of the mage's presence was a mystery.

Maybe Matteo created a blinding spell on him? Or a shield spell so that the vampire wouldn't feel his pr

to speak with him? Did he hate his presence so much that he had to literally vanish on the spot?

Well, whatever.

"How?" was Noman's question after tossing his thoughts away. "Your bodyguard is literally behind that door."

Amanda shrugged her shoulders. "I don't know how he didn't sense him. Matteo said he cast a spell. It must be strong."

Noman placed the bag of papers on the table and neared her.

"Sneaky bastard. He didn't hurt you again did he?" he asked, frowning.

"No, we just talked, " Amanda replied.

"About what?"

"About how he survived last week's fight."

"And?"

Amanda decided to sit on a stool nearest hers and reached for an apple that Noman had placed on the bedside table the other day.

"He said a family member took care of him, but he didn't say who, " she answered after taking a bite.

Noman lightly scoffed.

"Maybe he is just playing mind games on you, Cait. Matteo is trying to get your attention again I'm sure."

"Please don't tell Cord about this, " she requested after remembering him. "I can't have more bodyguards in my room. One is enough."

"And apparently that one seemed oblivious of your visitor, " Noman pointed out.

"I don't blame him, Dom."

"Then I suggest you put poor Nathie inside the room."

"Nathie?" Amanda's brow rose, taken aback by the pet name her best friend just gave to her bodyguard.

Noman disregarded the silent question floating inside the room and decided to open the balcony door.

"Hey, come inside, " he gestured a hand to him. "You're frying yourself there."

Jonathan angled his head to the side like a worn out puppy and said, "If Miss O'Malley wishes me to come inside then I'll do so."

"Sure she does, right Cait?" Noman called in whilst giving her a silent threat through his eyes.

"Yep, " Amanda replied. She sure got his message.

And with that, Jonathan stepped inside the room.

Noman closed the door whilst ogling at Jonathan's back.

"Hmmm, that's better, " he said, agreeing with himself as his eyes traveled down the vampire's ass. "More for me to see."

"Dom, behave yourself, " Amanda chastised after she took another bite of the apple.

Noman, in response, walked to his bag.

"I am, " he said. "Look I have my papers here to busy myself."

Amanda rolled her eyes heavenward.

"Whatever you say."
