We hit the 100 mark! Thank you guys so much for the votes and comments. I squeal every time I get one. Anyways here's chapter ten!

Clarke's POV

My eyes flutter open from the light streaming in the window. I stretch feeling a weight on waist, something holding me down. I look down to see a muscular arm. I smile when the events of yesterday come back to me. I turn around facing Mason, watching as he slowly opens his eyes. As soon as he sees me already watching him a lazy smile comes across his face.

I snuggle closer to him rubbing my forehead against his chest. He's so comfortable and warm.


His heart rate speeds up for a second and then goes back to normal. "yes angel?"

I lean my head back and look up at him. "What's your real name?" He told me years ago when we were best friends but I always called him Ton-ton, I'm not really sure why either. It just kinda came to me.

He chuckles, his chest vibrating. "Mason." He replies simply.

"That's a nice name." I whisper. "Thank you darling." He smiles down at me.

"You know, I always loved it when you called me Ton-ton. It was something that your little head came up with at the time, it made no sense at all. But, I think that's why it appealed to me so much. It was who you wanted me to be. And that's who I was, to you."

I look up at him and kiss his cheek. " I missed you so much."

"Not nearly as much as I missed you." He brushes the hair out of my face.

"Why are up this early angel?" He furrows his eyebrows. I shrug and scoot closer. "He sighs and tucks me into his chest with his wings, then rubs my back with them. I giggle quietly when it tickles.

After a few more minutes of much needed cuddling I get up and grab my clothes, Mason following close behind.

I step into the bathroom about to shut the door when I notice Mason standing outside the bathroom door with a worried look on his face.

"What's wrong?" I furrow my eyebrows. "N-nothing... I just hate it when you shower." He looks down embarrassed.

I tilt my head to the side in confusion. "why do you hate it when I shower?" Mason shuffles back and forth on his feet. "It's the only time I can't watch to make sure you're okay."

Awe he's so sweet. I walk up to him cupping his cheek, standing on my tippy toes I kiss his jaw. "I will be fine, it won't take long. I promise." He looks sheepishly up at me and nods. I smile and then head on to my shower.

When I step out of the bathroom Mason is immediately by my side, grabbing my cheeks looking me over, making sure I'm fine. I giggle at his worried state. "How did you ever make it before without having a heart attack?" He shakes his head. "You have no idea."


Making it to school I head to my first class. Mason explained to me earlier that he will have to turn invisible while we are out so no one sees him and freaks out. But he made sure that I knew he'd be by my side every second.

I sit down in my usual seat and I can feel Mason grab my hand. I smile and squeeze his gently. I jump slightly when someone sits beside me. "Oh you startled me there Victor." I chuckle with my other hand on my chest. Mason tightens his grip.
