I sat silent for a long moment, contemplating a world where vampires bled their victims dry on a regular basis, or tore them to shreds in their own homes. A world where humans went on a city-wide hunt for the monsters who were killing them.
Is that the kind of world the perpetrator of the vamp murders wants to create?
The laws, spoken and unspoken, made just a little more sense.
I shivered again, but this time there was no desire in the tremble.
“Let’s get this over with,” I said, pulling the collar of my shirt aside and baring my neck to Reese. I didn’t trust him—not really, not yet—but no one else was around, and I had no choice but to do this.
“First,” he whispered, “let me help you.” He licked his thumb and ran it across the wound the other vampire had left. A tingling, burning sensation followed his touch, and when I reached up to check the bite, I felt the hard edges of a scab—the kind that shouldn’t be there for days, at least, or maybe longer.
I opened my mouth to ask about it, but Reese shook his head and placed his fingertip across my lips.
My heart stuttered as he bent down and slid his tongue gently across the recent wounds he had created, drawing a line of fire between the two puncture marks. Then he traced another line with his tongue up a little higher on my neck, following the vein. With a sigh, I closed my eyes, and he sank his fangs into me.
This shouldn’t feel so much like coming home.
