Being dragged towards the door of the homey kitchen, Camryn took another look at Trevor. She looked from his brown hair, captivating blue eyes, and strong jawline to his feet. Wearing a tight-fitting, light grey t-shirt, black jeans, and red high-tops, Trevor was a sight to see. With lean, ever-present muscles and a faint 6-pack, even if he wasn't sporty or athletic, he obviously took care of his body.

Just outside the kitchen, they bumped into Seth again.

"Oh, Seth! It seems you've already met Camryn." Clara had noticed the laughter in his eyes and the blush across Camryn's cheeks. "Hmm. Seth, have you been toying with this young lady, you naughty boy?" She giggled.

Seth laughed. "Just take her to her room, mom. She looks dead on her feet!"

Sure enough, Camryn's heavy eyelids were slowly descending over her green eyes.

"Oh! Well, come on upstairs then, Cammie!"

"'Kay..." Camryn was rubbing her eyes.

"I can take her. What room is she in, mom?"

"226. Here are the keys. Now, make sure she gets the spare for her room! Don't want her getting locked out." Handing over the keys, Clara left him to it, winking at them on her way back to the kitchen.

"C'mon, Cam. You look exhausted."

Putting his arm around her waist, Seth led her up the stairs. Camryn stopped at the top, swaying on her feet. She sat down with a thump!, yawning and rubbing her eyes.

Seth sat beside her, the ever-present laughter making his eyes glow with amusement. "Tired?"

Camryn nodded, leaning against him.

She looked up at his face, about to ask him a question, but she stopped short when she noticed the longing and recognition in his eyes.

Wrapping his arms around her, Seth leaned foreward until they could feel each other's breath on their faces. Camryn's eyes fluttered as his warm breath blew across her face. Leaning into his embrace, she felt at home.

"I can't believe I've found you after all these years," he whispered in her hair. "I can't count how many women have pretended to be you to get to me, my precious Alexandria."

Pulling away from his embrace, Camryn's brow furrowed. "What did you just call me? Who's Alexandria?"

"You don't remember me, do you?" Dissapointment covered his former relief.

"Everyone reincarnates numerous times. This is my twenty-fifth reincarnation. It's the sixth life I've had with you. The first time, you were Alexandria, me and Trevor were Damien and Marcus. I'll show you. Just look into my eyes and let your mind go blank."

Obeying his command, Camryn looked into his eyes, emptied her mind, and fell into darkness.

As her presently soulless body slumped against him, Seth hoped the new knowledge wouldn't drive her insane, as it almost had done to him.

The End
