Photos of the fruit are placed spaciously around the room. Everything is a shade of peach, including the furniture. The lacy bedsheets are a shade or two darker than the curtains. A small black and white television sits on a small chester drawer in front of the bed.

[[Aria from Mauderville Inn: Main Floor]]

Aria tossed her duffel on the bed, walking into the room and sinking into the matress. She planted her face in her hands, her body shaking with an involuntary sob. Her heart was in pieces. Her mind wrestled with thoughts of Paden. She wiped the tears from her cheeks, falling backwards onto the mattress. She listened to the rain against the window panes. Her jade eyes traced the cracks on the ceiling.

Aria lurched foward suddenly, realizing she had drifted into a dreamless slumber. She combed her slender fingers through her blonde hair, letting out a loud sigh. She was exhausted. Her body deserved the rest, but she could not afford to sleep. She needed to be awake, alert. If her father sent trackers, she needed to be ready for them.

Stirring to her feet, she unzipped her duffell. She patted around amongst the wrinkled clothes until her fingers met the comforting cool metal of her desert eagle. She pulled it out with a box of ammo. It had been a gift from Logan. At the time, she had been pissed. What kind of husband gave his wife a gun for their one year anniversary?

Loading the rounds into the clip, she stuffed the golden weapon into the back rim of her jeans. Her black military-style jacket covered it from view. She snatched a couple hundreds from the wad of bills in her bag and headed out the door.

[[Aria from Main floor]]

Aria paced into the room, pulling off her damp clothes. She threw them all around the room, pulling back the blankets and collapsing into bed. She curled into a ball, crying softly and drifting off into a more restful sleep

Aria buried her face in the pillow, her body shaking with grief. She wanted Paden. She needed him. His memories were too painful. She screamed into the pillow, kicking off the blankets. Sweat glistened over her ivory skin. A single painful image surfaced in her head, over and over again. Paden was sprawled out across the concrete slab, his stunning gaze dead and lifeless. It was her fault. She knew that. It was all her fault.

How could she betray him? Sharing the bed with another wolf? She was ashamed. Her werewolf instincts urged her to replace her dead mate, but she refused. She was not ready to let go. Besides, she had her husband to contend with.

[[Reese Entering]]

Reese fazed threw the door, the room suddenly getting chilly, and cautiously glanced around. He eyed the girl lying on the mattress hugging the pillow to her slender body. She appeared to be crying. Reese swallowed, hoping the man in the hall hadn't done anything to her. Reese moved towards her. He wanted to comfort her, to make her stop crying.

Aria heard the scratches at the door. She dragged herself off the bed. Sniffling, she crossed the floor and pulled open the door. Her eyes dropped to the dog from the previous night. "Hi." She forced a smile at the animal.
12/14/2009 #9

Shep frowned and walked into the room. Her animal instincts were taking over as they usually did. She jumped up on the bed, tilting her head at Arianna as if asking "what's wrong?"

Aria combed back her tangled blonde hair. She understood the look she was receiving from the animal, perhaps it came with being half wolf. "I was forced to mary Logan when I turned eighteen, but I fell in love with his brother. So, the pack had him killed as an example." She blinked away tears, feeling like an idiot for talking to a dog. She climbed onto the bed, shrinking into the blankets again.
12/14/2009 #11

Shep nudged her arm with a whimper and curled up to her. She usually didn't like people, but Arianna was different. Arianna could be a friend. So instead of following Justin when he lost his temper, she resided with Arianna, giving her comfort in the only way she knew how.

Reese narrowed his eyes at Arianna's story, wondering what kind of person would do this to a girl like Arianna. He looked at Shep, then back to Arianna, wishing he could take the dogs place. Reese stood watching the two, crossing his arms over his chest.

Aria stirred at the sound of the howl, rolling onto her back. She sniffled, trying to get ahold of herself.
12/14/2009 #14

Shep made an aggravated noise at the howl, thinking Justin was overreacting. She snuggled into the pillows, not having slept the past night. Soft snores came from the dog as she curled into the bed.

Reese's head snapped towards the door. ''What the hell?'' He said, stepping threw the wall. There was nothing in the lobby. Reese fazed back in the room, glancing back at his canine friend and Arianna seeing if they had heard it too.

"Was that?" Her voice trailed off. She sat foward, her naval piercing catching in the light. Her fingers found the box of tissues beside the bed. She dabbed at her eyes, blowing her nose, and stirring to her feet. Her stomach released an angry growl, reminding her to find some food. Digging through the worn duffel, she discovered a faded shirt and pair of sun-washed jeans. She pulled them on in turn, her tattoo peeked through the mid-drift.

Grabbing her jacket off the foot of the bed, she decided to find some food. She wiped her puffy eyes one more time before pulling open the door.

Reese's eyes widened when Arianna spoke. Can she hear me? He thought quickly, watching her leave the room. Reese followed her, hoping he could have someone else to talk to other than Veronica and a dog. Not that the canine wasn't interest. He just wanted someone who he could have a conversation with.

[Gee, doesn't Shep feel special. Lol.]

Shep was already dead to the world, cuddling up in the blankets and pillows. She didn't even notice her new friends had left.

12/15/2009 #19

Shep jumped out of the bed, her paws hitting the hardwood floors. She listened for a moment and noticed that no one was around. She quickly shifted and exited the room. She didn't bother shifting back.

*Justin and Aria entering*

He kicked the door shut behind him. With Aria still in his arms he walked to the bathroom and set her down on the lid of the toilet. He knelt by the tub, turning on the water. "Shower or bath?" he asked as he tuned back to her. His face was grim. Justin's heart screamed at him to stop, to leave her alone. She wasn't his responsibility, but he wanted her safe. Unknowingly his hands rested on her calves, gently massaging her legs. He looked into her eyes. Despite his inner battle he would have done anything for her in that moment. Whether it was because she was so much like Anna or because he was falling for her, he had no idea. Instead he ignored the feelings bubbling in his chest and focused solely on the moment at hand.

Aria became slowly aware of his hands massaging her legs. She stared at him, her expression blank for a long moment. Everytime she thought she had him figured out, Justin continued to surprise her. His touch sent reassuring ripples beneath her skin. She inhaled, feeling the breath catch in her throat. Rather than risk trying to speak, she leaned foward and pressed her forehead against his. Their lips barely touched. "Shower." She whispered in a weak voice. [[my Internet crashed. On my phone...]
1/7/2010 #22

[That's terrible! D:]

Resisting the need to take her in his arms Justin pulled away and started the shower. He stood up and glanced around the bathroom, rubbing the back of his neck. "Uhh..." His brows furrowed. For a moment he disappeared. When he returned he had her bag and he set it on the tiled floor. "I'll be back," he mumbled. Justin shut the bathroom door behind him, leaving her alone.

Aria sat, staring at the closed door. When the mirror began to fog, she finally pulled the shirt over her head. She tossed it across the well-sized bathroom, never wanting to land eyes on it again. The hot stream of water soaked through her skin. She stood under the spray until her skin turned red. Her mind was too ocupied to prmpt her fingers to search for the soap.

After a while, she lost track of time. When she finally emerging, she did not bother to turn the water off. Rummaging through her duffel, she somehow managed to find a pair of silk pajamas. As she pulled them from the bag, a simple diamond engagement ring fell to the floor and rolled behind the toilet.

Once she was dressed, she pulled open the door and walked into the center of the room. Her body was heavy with exhaustion.

*Justin Entering*

Justin closed the door behind him softly. Arianna was standing in the room. He wanted to go to her, comfort her. Seeing her likes this was doing things to him; things he didn't like. It had been a while since he'd felt anything like it. He stood close to her, his thumb touched the back of her hand in soft caress. "I don't want you to see me like this. Do you mind if I clean up?" he asked, his eyes concerned.

R. Lauden

Aria shook her head without speaking a word. Moving towards the bed, she peeled back the covers and settled into the blankets. She pressed her face into the pillow and tried to relax. Her entire body was tense, still on edge. It was a strange sort of feeling, but without Justin she could not feel at ease. Her mind continued to spiral. She expected the tracker to re-emerge at any moment.

It was a foolish thought. She had seen him crumpled and dead on the road.

[[I have an idea for the ring. Go with it being an engagement ring, but Logan did not give it to her... :P]]

1/8/2010 #26

Justin hesitated before walking into the bathroom. He felt guilty for leaving in the first place, but his jeans were ruined with blood. He turned on the shower and scrubbed away at the blood. He didn't have time to wash away the tightness in his muscles. He turned off the water and stepped out of the shower. As he was drying off, something flashed in his peripheral vision. All too curious he bent down to investigate. He pinched it between his thumb and forefinger, staring at it in disbelief. Justin's heart sank.

She was engaged, or even worse, married. Just like Anna. He cursed, dressing quickly. Although he wanted to bring up the subject he knew that wasn't what she needed. Right now he needed to focus on comforting her even if he wasn't supposed to, even if it wasn't his responsibility. Just like the time many years ago he elt compelled to put his arms around her. Except this time he would let go without being asked.

Justin stuffed the ring in the pocket of his jeans and left the bathroom. He sat on the edge of the bed, unsure. He didn't know if she even wanted to be touched. With his back to her, he asked, "What do you want me to do, Arianna?"

1/8/2010 #27
R. Lauden

Aria sniffled, rolling on her back to look up at him. "Hold me?" She pleaded, hoping he wouldn't object. She needed him. She needed someone, anyone to anchor her back to reality. She could feel herself spiraling out of control. Tragedy was weighing against her. First Paden, now this. "Please." She begged Justin. As she blinked, another tear escaped her jade eyes. It slid down her cheek, falling on the pillow.

She wanted him close, with his arms around her. She felt something for him, a warm blush in her chest. It was nothing foreign to her. The feeling had been the same with Paden.

1/8/2010 #28

[Oh gosh. I'm all teary eyed again! My heart hurts for her.]

He nodded, laying down on the bed. He turned on his side and wrapped an arm around her waist. His hand stroked her back, gently massaging the tension there. His eyes were sad as he stared at her. He felt guilty for the way he had treated her before, but that had been a different time when he didn't know. He wondered if her husband knew where she was, what she was giving him as an excuse. He wondered if her husband beat her, but couldn't see any signs. More importantly he wondered if they had mated. Her scent seemed to be her own, but it was tainted. By what he couldn't tell. For the time being he decided it didn't matter. Not as long as he could hold her. He came closer to her, his body brushing against hers.

[[Haha. I figured you would appreciate that post.]]

Aria moved closer to Justin, her body forming to his. She wanted to be close with him. As his fingers traced patterns across her back, she felt herself growing more and more tired. "Thank-you." She whispered, shifting her eyes to his. She had worked so hard to avoid making eye contact, fearful of confronting her own guilt. What she found there was not guilt. Something else emerged inside of her, something reassuring.

His eyes were sad, looking at her with pity. She didn't want him to pity her. She didn't want anyone to pity her.

Pressing her face against his chest, she breathed in the scent of him and tried to drift to sleep. Her mind refused to settle, too occupied with everything that had happened. Her body sagged into the matress, desperate for sleep.
