Mistress cut me for no reason!…. so I will give away more of her book! (grin) Enjoy!
Where are the tournequits? (sigh)
The streets are empty as I walk with my head down and my hands buried in the pockets of my jeans. I’m still so confused about why Amanda hit me. I did nothing to provoke her; at least I don’t think I did anyway. I stop walking to look at my watch and figure out how far away from home I am.
“It’s only two-thirty? I thought it was later than that.” Maybe I should try to go home and try to rest. Looking up I see a man with a cane walking alone. A slow smile spreads across my face. Didn’t anyone ever tell him it’s dangerous walking alone late at night?
“Perhaps a snack before I go to bed will make me feel better.” I whisper as I move to catch up with him.
It isn’t long before I’ve caught up to him. I keep about three steps or so behind him, close but not too close. He hasn’t sensed me behind him yet, so catching him off-guard should be simple. He’s not as old as I thought, but is still healthy. He should be an easy target, though I suspect his cane is more for protection than for support. I take a step backwards, and then rush forward, causing him to stumble a bit. Wrapping my arms around his shoulders I pull him to me and lean in to bite. Before I can sink my fangs in he rears his head back and throws me off him, then uses his cane to sweep me off my feet.
When I scramble back onto my feet, I see him running around a corner about two blocks away. How the hell was he able to move like that? Better yet, how was he able to beat me? I’ll never find out because I’m not about to admit to anyone I let an old man beat me.
“Angela girl, you’re losing it, it’s time to go to bed.” Shaking my head I turn and start to walk towards home when I hear a familiar voice call to me.
“Maybe this night has some potential left.” Looking up, I see Kane walking towards me.
“This is my lucky night, it seems,” he leans in, kissing me. “I saw you at the club tonight; I couldn’t resist an invitation from such a beautiful vampire.” Kane reaches out to touch my face and I step back out of his reach. “What happened?”
“A fight with my teacher, but it’s nothing serious. Walk with me for a bit.” I slide my arm his waist as we walk. “So what did you think?”
“You are very good at what you do,” he caresses my arm as we walk. “It doesn’t bother me if that’s what you’re asking. Sexual energy is good for a vampire.”
“Yes, it is,” I reply in a whisper. It’s nice walking with him but too soon we’re back at Amanda’s house. “This is where I’m staying.”
“It’s beautiful,” he looks at the house briefly and turns his attention to me. “Will you come to The Dungeon again?”
“Yes,” I smile, wrapping my arms around his neck. His lips brush mine before sliding into the kiss. I step into his body as his tongue teases mine. Chills and sparks run through me as I free his hair from the confines of the hair band and run my hands through the rain of copper silk. He groans as his fingers trace my spine and his teeth graze my lower lip.
“I’d better let you go in; I don’t want to anger your teacher.” Kane whispers against my lips, lightly kissing me before stepping back. “I’ll see you at my club.” Playing with his hair band, I watch as he leaves. He’s tempting, but not quite what I’m in the mood for tonight.
“I see my cutie likes to play with fire.” I turn and smile as Tonya walks up to me. She is exactly what I’m in the mood for. “At least you have good taste in…what happened to your face?” She reaches up and turns my cheek to take a better look at it. “Your eye is starting to bruise and it’ll be swollen shut when you wake up.”
“I’m still trying to figure it out. I’m having problems with an older vampire and when I asked Amanda about her, she hit me.” I shake my head to keep from crying again. “I’m sorry, I don’t mean to vent.”
“It’s all right,” she pulls me into her arms. “Sometimes Amanda has a hard time seeing who the good ones are.” She whispers, but must think I can’t hear her so I act like I didn’t. I tighten my grip on her and bury my face in her neck.
“I’m so glad you came to see me, you’re just what I needed right now.” Leaning back, I look at her and smile.
“Oh really now,” Tonya brushes her lips against mine before deepening the kiss. I fist my hand in her hair as we kiss. I love the sweet taste of her.
“I think I know just the thing to cheer my Cutie up.” Tonya takes my hand and leads me up the steps of the house.
