TEACHING VIXX - CHAPTER FORTY-SIX
Hello my dears!!! I have the next installment for you! I hope you like it!
I hope to have Ravi’s story out soon. He’s giving me problems right now 😂😂
Thank you all for reading!!
You had expected to wake up in pain, but not this much. As soon as you were conscious, all you could feel was a sharp pain in the back of your head. Your hands went to your head to try to keep it from moving, hoping that would help. You felt the bed move causing you to wince and let out a strangled gasp of pain.
“Hey, hey, easy, love. Just breathe.” Cool hands wrapped around yours. The pain subsided a bit and you could breathe normally. But as soon as he moved his hands the pain returned. Desperately, you reached for his hands again and placed them on your head. Breathing a sigh of relief, you tried opening your eyes.
The bright light streaming into the room brought a new level of pain to your head. You closed your eyes immediately and he pulled your head into his chest.
“I’m so sorry, my love.” He placed a kiss to your temple in apology. Then he started drawing soothing circles on the back of your head and it was doing wonders for the pain.
“Can you just…keep doing that? It helps.” You nuzzled your head into his shoulder and closed your eyes.
“Its because I’m touching you. The tattoo does quite a number on your body. But if you stay close to the matching one, the pain subsides. It wont last long, though. It’ll probably go away in about an hour.”
“Honestly, its just like a really bad hangover.” He kept rubbing the back of your head and you tried to relax.
“I’ve never had a hang over.”
“Aw man, you really were a good girl, huh?” You felt his lips near your ear. “But I think we took care of that last night.”
You whined in embarrassment as he wrapped his arm around your waist. It was then that you realized that you were still completely naked, as was he. The searing pain had taken away all of your other senses but now they came flooding back. His fingers leisurely caressed your spine, sending tingles throughout your body.
Memories slowly creeped into your mind of everything that occured last night. You didn’t regret a thing but, good God, you were sore. Your cheeks were also as red as a tomato now.
“What are you thinking about, hmm? I can feel your emotions going crazy.” He tried to lean back to see your face but you hid it even further into his shoulder. With every second that the pain subsided you were hit with more memories of last night. Your mind relived every beautiful second of it.
The point in which he had initiated the tattoo marking was forever seared into your mind. As soon as both of you had reached your highs, he mumbled a few words that you didn’t understand and sealed them with a kiss. Every emotion imaginable had coursed through at that second. You had seen stars behind your closed eyes and you could have sworn that your skin was on fire. When you had come back down to earth, he was placing kisses on every patch of skin he could find, murmuring comforting words. Exhaustion had taken over you after that and you had fallen into a blissful sleep curled into his side.
You came back to reality when you heard him chuckling.
“You’re going back and forth from embarrassed to turned on. Now, I wonder what that could mean.” He trailed a finger down your side until his hand reached your hip. You tried to wiggle out of his grip but it just resulted in pain.
“I’m sorry, I shouldn’t make you move. You must be sore.” His hand returned to your face where he tucked a few stray hairs behind your ear. You cracked one eye open and attempted a glare.
“That’s not my fault.”
“I suppose it isn’t. But you’re just so damn irresistible when you’re moaning my name.” His voice dropped an octave and you let out a barely audible gasp. Face heating, you recalled how you had reacted to his touches. He was an attentive lover and incredibly patient.
“Are you okay, though? I didn’t hurt you?” He threaded his fingers through your hair and you looked up at him.
“Other than the headache, I’m fine. It’s almost gone and that isn’t really your fault. I’m a bit sore, but that’s to be expected, right?” You smiled up at him, hoping to reassure him that he were fact more than fine.
“Good. I was hoping that you wouldn’t kick me out of the bed this morning.” You laughed and he joined in. He looked into to your eyes as if he was checking for something. “Almost there.”
You had no idea what he was talking about so you just waited for him to explain.
“Do you want to see something?”
“Sure.” You said it slowly, not sure how you should respond.
He leaned over your body to the nightstand that was behind you. For a moment, you were squished into the mattress and you giggled. When he returned, he had his phone in his hand. Fiddling with the screen, you noticed he brought up the camera app and switched it to self-mode.
“Now, don’t panic.”
You flicked your eyes over to him, worried. Panic about what? He turned the phone towards you and you saw yourself looking back at you. What made your heart stop and start again was what you saw on the screen. Around the edge of your irises was a green rim. It faded into the natural brown of your eyes but the green was definitely dominant. It was the exact color green you always saw in his eyes. You slowly smiled and looked up at Taekwoon. He carried a concerned expression and you realized he was worried about your reaction.
“I love it. Is it permanent?”
“Yes, it will stay. It will get slightly brighter before its complete. But only you and other hybrids can see it. Its part of what makes you mine, just like I am yours. Other hybrids can’t take you away from me now. I…I didn’t tell you about it before because I was afraid it would scare you.” He gave you a guilty look while he played with your hair.
“Something like that wouldn’t scare me. Do you know how much I love your eyes? You have no idea how many times I watched those performances of Hyde and On and On. Now I have a part of that. I couldn’t be happier.” You thought for a moment and then asked. “Is there anything else?”
“Well, yeah, there’s a couple more. Other than the eyes and the tattoo, you will be able to sense when I’m close. Its like a pull you’ll feel inside. The last one will need some practice. But after a while, you’ll be able to hear my heartbeat.”
“Really?! You tease! I was just complaining yesterday that I can’t hear your heartbeat. You could’ve told me!”
“Well, I had a few other things on my mind, love.”
“Typical guy.” You rolled your eyes at him but smiled. With the pain in your head gone, other priorities were taking its place. Like food.
“Hungry?” Taekwoon chuckled at your surprised expression.
“My senses are enhanced. All thanks to you, by the way. Everything I could do before has been doubled, if not tripled. I’m pretty sure I could hear you from anywhere in the world.” He winked at you and rose to a sitting position.
The action pulled the blanket away from your body and you desperately pulled it back. Taekwoon noticed your panicked state and chuckled.
“Honey, I’ve already seen everything. You don’t have to hide under that.”
“I-I know. But, I just….its daylight now.” You bowed your head and picked at the fabric of the blanket, too shy to look at him.
“What? So I can only see you naked when its dark? I don’t think I like that.” He tried pulling the blanket from you but you kept a death grip on it.
“No! I mean, its just…I’m just not used to it yet.”
“Hmm, I’ll have to help you with that then. But, I think I should feed you first. You want me to grab you something to put on?”
“No, it okay. I’ll, uh, just go take a shower first.” You leaned over the bed and spotted Taekwoon’s tshirt he had shed the night before. Carefully, you balanced yourself on the bed as you reached for it. You slid it over your head and finally let the blanket drop from your torso.
“Do you want any company?” Your breath caught in your throat as your cheeks lit on fire.
“No! I mean, um, I think I can handle it.” You rose from the bed, your legs still a bit wobbly. You had to stand still for a few seconds before you felt semi-normal. Thankfully, Taekwoon’s shirt was long enough and it covered to mid-thigh. Looking down, you noticed faint marks and reddened skin where Taekwoon had lingered last night.
“Shit, sweetie, I’m sorry. I-I didn’t think I had been that rough.” He scooted forward on the bed and run his thumb over one of the many marks.
“You weren’t. My skin bruises very easily. Its not your fault. You were as gentle as could be. They don’t even hurt.” You cupped his cheek in your hand and leaned over to kiss his forehead. You pointed to a couple of hickies you had left on his neck and chuckled. “I left some of my own. “Besides,” you leaned close to his ear and whispered, “I like it when you do that.”
He groaned at your words and flopped backwards onto the bed. He rubbed his hands over his face, exasperated.
“Go shower.” He sighed. “And lock the door.”
You shuffled past him and gathered your clothes. Looking back at Taekwoon, you snagged one of his tshirts from his open suitcase and hurried into the bathroom.
You spent longer in the shower than you should have. But, you needed to gather your thoughts. Everything seemed to happen so fast last night but you remembered every second. You had been so nervous but Taekwoon made everything perfect. Your body was consumed with love bites and your blood heated when you thought of how they got there. Taekwoon may not be a vampire but he certainly loves to bite. And that was fine with you.
But, at the same time, you were still doubtful. Thoughts ran through your head at warp speed. Was he satisfied? Did you do anything wrong and he was just too nice to tell you? He had marked you with the tattoo but did he regret it at all? Were you being too insecure? What would happen when you got back to your apartment? Would the guys tease you?
That last part would definitely happen, you thought.
You wanted to talk to Taekwoon about it, but you were too embarrassed. You couldn’t just flat out ask him if he enjoyed himself. He seemed happy. Maybe you were just being too paranoid.
You shook your head to clear your thoughts and stepped out of the shower to dry off. Getting dressed and drying your hair served as a slight distraction from your paranoia. You tried to see your tattoo in the mirror but could only see the very edge of it. Taekwoon had said it would be a paw print but you couldn’t see it.
Stepping out of the bathroom, you noticed that Taekwoon was gone–as well as the sheets on the bed.
A new wave of dispair hit you when you realized that it was probably because of you. You tried to tell yourself that it was natural but it still embarrassed you.
Trying to ignore it you grabbed your phone from the nightstand and angled your head to take a picture where the tattoo was at. Bringing up the picture, you smiled. It was a perfect little black paw print. Something about being able to finally see it made you feel warm and happy inside. Taekwoon was right. You could feel your body pulling you in a certain direction. It almost felt like it was a magnet.
You made your way towards the kitchen and sighed at the smell of food. Without a word, you walked towards Taekwoon, dressed in only his sweatpants. He had finished preparing the leftovers his mother had given you and placed them on the table. As you got closer, you could see faint scratch marks marring the skin of his back.
You gasped as your hand came up to your mouth in shock. You didn’t remember doing that. Taekwoon looked at you and cocked his head to the side, reading your emotions. You could see the exact moment he figured it out. His eyes producing a slight glow as he stalked towards you. You had to grip the countertop to keep ftom buckling under his gaze.
“Concerned about something?” He asked, voice low.
“I-I…um…well…” He came around the counter to stand in front of you. His breath was causing the stray hairs around your face to fly around.
“Well…what?” He was going to make you say it. He looked so proud of himself for teasing you effectively.
“D-do they hurt?” Geniune concern showed on your face, as well as embarrassment.
“You really are the cutest little thing. No, honey, they don’t hurt.” He laughed and placed a kiss on the top of your head. “Believe me, I have no problem with you doing that. In all honesty, I never though I would. But, because its you, I love it. I like that I can effect you enough to make you react like that. I’m interested in seeing what else I can make you do.”
Anticipation took over your thoughts and body. You were interested, too, to be honest. You had a feeling that you weren’t going to leave the house anytime soon. Not that you wanted to.
“Eat something while I take a shower. You’re going to need your energy.” His finger traced the shell of your ear and trailed down your neck. He placed another kiss in your hair and walked off. You snuck a glance at his retreated form. You couldn’t resist another peak at his shoulders.
By the time he returned, you were on your second round of food. He walked in the kitchen, hair still damp and covering his eyes a bit. He looked like walking sin. And all yours. His eyes found yours and he grinned. He knew, but didn’t say anything.
Just then your phone pinged. Picking it up, you noticed YoonJung’s number pop up. Opening the message, you had to laugh when you read it.
Unni: So, are you pregnant yet?
Unni: I’m just asking because I haven’t heard from you and you’re there freaking out because you’re going to have kittens.
You: No, I’m not pregnant. I’ve just been….occupied.
Unni: I’m sure you have been. Are you able to walk?
You: Yes, you crazy person, I can walk.
Unni: Oh, good. I expect details when you return. And good ones. Not the kind where you just say ‘it was great’. I know you. When you come back, we can compare notes ; )
“Compare notes on what?” You jumped about three feet at Taekwoon’s voice in your ear. You quickly switched off your screen and held it in your hand in a death grip.
“Nothing. She’s just being silly.”
“Hmm, I don’t think so. What is it?”
Sighing, you knew you wouldn’t be able to keep it from him. Perhaps he already knew.
“YoonJung Unni…and Jaehwan.”
“Ah, they’ve been together? I recall Jaehwan mentioning that he liked her.” He reached past you and shoved an egg roll-up in his mouth.
“Yeah, she told me when we had gone out a couple days ago. I think they would be cute together.” You finished the food on your plate as Taekwoon kept devouring various things on the table.
His hand came up to move your hair away from your neck on the left side.
“Did you see it?” He was talking about the tattoo.
“Yeah, I had to take a picture with my phone because I couldn’t see it in the mirror.”
“What did you think about it?” He grazed his thumb right under where the mark was but you could feel the electricity in your body from him just being that close.
“I love it. Its actually smaller than I thought it would be. I’m not complaing though. I love that its a paw print.” You looked up at him at tilted your head to try to see his. He obliged and turned his head. There, right behind his ear, was an exact copy of your tattoo.
“Will the company mind that you have that? I hadn’t thought about that before.” As soon as you asked, you watched as the mark faded from his skin. You gasped and looked to him for an explanation.
“I can hide it. Hybrids can still see it though. So, the company wont even know its there.” His thumb returned to your neck and this time it grazed over the mark. A satisfied sigh escaped your lips and you leaned into his touch.
“Have you finished eating?”
It took you a second or two to respond.
“Y-yeah, I’m finished.” You barely had your response out when he lifted you into his arms. A surprised squeak came from your throat and you wrapped your arms around his shoulders. He strode out of the kitchen quickly and headed back towards the bedroom.
“But the food….it’ll spoil.”
“It’ll be fine for a couple of hours. I haven’t had my fill of you yet.” He gently laid you on the bed and followed you immediately. He took your phone out of your hand and placed it on the nightstand. Your tshirt didn’t last long and was over your head and on the floor in a matter of seconds. His lips descended on your shoulder as his hands found yours, placing them on either side of your head. His tongue leisurely slid over the old scar on your shoulder and you squirmed underneath him. He didn’t spend much time there as he blazed a trail with his tongue and teeth until his lips placed themselves right under the tattoo. Suddenly, his tongue flicked over the mark and your body arched into him.
“Oh my God.” You wanted to grab onto his but his hands still has yours pinned to the bed. You could do nothing but squeeze his hands. You wrapped one of your legs around his and winced slightly when you were reminded how sore you were in this position. He must have noticed and he shifted so that he didn’t have so much of his weight on you. His lips found yours and he wasted no time in sliding his tongue past them. You tried to pull your hands out of his grasp to touch him but he growled at you, sending your heart into overdrive. He chuckled as he pulled back to look at you.
“See? I told you that you had a kink.” He winked at you and you protested.
“I do not! Its just that the sound is nice. It doesn’t mean–oh..” Your words died in your throat as you watch his eyes very slowly turn red. He looked like a devil with his hair falling over his eyes and the red peeking through. He smiled sinfully as he knew he’d caught you. You watched as the red started to glow and you were a goner.
“You were saying?”
“Smart-ass.” You glared at him and his smile widened. His eyes held yours for what seemed like hours until he leaned down a kissed you. He leaned back and looked at you again.
“I still can’t get over your eyes. The fact that they hold my color wants me to dominate and submit to you all at once. I can’t remember how I functioned before you cane to me. When your friend mentioned that I was your favorite in the group, my heart pounded in my chest. The guys gave me hell about it for a good week. You can’t imagine how happy I was when you agreed to go out with me. I never dared to hope that you would agree to let me mark you. I still don’t think I believed it until I saw it on you today. At the risk of sounding possessive, you’re mine.”
Tears threatened your eyes. Taekwoon was not the type to pour out his heart like this. You could say nothing for fear of losing it. All you could do was lean up and kiss him. You said everything you could in that kiss. He seemed to understand when you felt him smile. He released your hands to wipe the small tears away that had formed at the edge of your eyes. With your hands free you let your fingers roam. They found the hem of his shirt and you tugged at it, wanting it off. He obliged and leaned away from you to remove it. With that barrier gone, you roamed further until your fingers reached the band of his sweatpants and tugged. He hesitated and looked at you.
“You’re too sore for that. We can do other things.”
“I don’t care. Just do something.”
“As you wish.” Was all he said as his lips took yours.
