I broke the hug almost immediately worried about why Frank would give me that expression.

"Are you ready to go home?" McCoy said, oblivious to Frank's mood.

"I think you should go. I'll come soon." I replied and gave him a pat on the back.

"Ok." He replied and walked back.

For the first time, I noticed he didn't give me that grin. He just walked off and didn't for a second turn back.

Was it the hug or the excitement in me seeing him alive that made him that way? I would never get the answer to that.

When McCoy was gone, I walked back to Frank.

"Are you alright?" I asked.

"I am. Why do you care?" He spat coldly, avoiding eye contact.

For reasons I didn't know, it hurt me. I felt my heart being torn open.

The rage in his eyes and the flicker they held...They had to mean something.

"I wanted to talk about the archives..."

"See!" Frank suddenly insighted.

I had no idea what his deal was. It made me, even more, infuriated he had no plans on telling me what I did wrong.

"Frank, it either you tell me what I did now or we forget this ever happened, " I stated, giving him attitude.

He got closer and I felt warmer.

Promiscuous me.

"You want to know Valerie? you really want to know?"

Here we go again!

"Yes. Tell me, Frank."

He unexpectedly leaned in. The moment was too fast to predict what was going on not until I felt his lips on mine.

"What are you doing?" I abruptly broke the kiss feeling violated.

Frank didn't relent. Although he didn't try to kiss me, He pulled me closer and I could feel his hands chain me down as the bracelet did.

"I don't know how to act when I'm with you." He growled, His emerald eyes glinting with nothing but want.

It was almost the same look I saw when I met McCoy's eyes.

"What are you doing Frank?" I managed to say.

My heart was beating so fast. I couldn't comprehend what was happening. I couldn't believe this was real.

"What I should have done a long time ago." He retorted, "I love you, Valerie."

My breathing instantly got obstructed.

Frank just said that! He just confessed his feelings for me.

It was still so unreal and I couldn't wrap my mind around what he just said and when I did I said the most embarrassing thing ever.

"No." I shook his hands off and stepped back.

The look in his eyes told me I had hurt him badly but I didn't stop there.

"What do you think you're

This was no time for a surrogate reunion.

Lilith ignored my question and sauntered the room before taking her seat comfortably on the bathtub armrest.

"You know when Adam left me for Eve, I had quite the fun with incubus's. All they wanted was sex with no feeling attached..."

"What do you want?"I cut in.

"You know...Just to give motherly advice. You're the only grandchild I have after all."

"I don't know what game you're playing but you almost got me killed by the cleaners."

"Oh please, those creatures. You didn't show them what blood runs through your veins."

I rolled my eyes and tried to comprehend why she would be here. I remembered my powers had been resealed. She wanted to be the seal once again. I made up my mind to tell her off.

"If you're here to unseal my abilities, I'm sorry to disappoint you, You'll be doing no such thing."

Lilith snickered and walked towards me. She took the hands that held the jewel before examining it closely.

I didn't stop her.

She drove my hands and faced me lovingly, "I'm not here to unseal your powers and I didn't do it last time, you did it Valerie but I will tell you something, Do you trust Diana?"

"Who?" I queried.

"The Fae queen."

"Yes. She sacrificed her position for me."

"Rubbish!" Lilith waved off, "Why would she jinx the jewelry?"

I didn't know what she meant. I examined the bracelet. There was no strange marking on it. Why was I even believing her?

Lilith pointed to one of the precious stones, "This is a hellion eye. Known to be able to take away supernatural abilities and used for rogues."
