Roland shook me from behind. Are you fucking insane? Drop that thing before it gives you rabies or something.
I need some room to do this. Can you all move to the living room?Once the kitchen was empty except for me and the vampire, I knelt beside her prone body and laid my hands on her chest. I didn’t even have to call my power forth. It rushed to my hands as soon as it sensed a demon close by, and I had to hold it back to keep from killing the vampire outright.
The vampire’s eyes opened and her mouth twisted in a scream as I pushed my power slowly into her chest. My aim was to make contact with the vamhir demon, not kill it like I had done with Nate. It didn’t take me long to find the gelatinous membrane surrounding the heart, and I touched it to let it know I was there. The demon trembled and shrank away from me, but there was nowhere it could go.I remembered every detail of my experience with Nate as if it had happened yesterday. Drawing on that knowledge, I let my power envelop the demon and called on the same force I had tapped into the first time I’d done this. The demon convulsed, and I could feel its scream inside my skull.No! screeched an alien voice that was not my own.
You want it to stop? Tell me how you knew about this house.It fell silent for a long moment and I began to think I’d imagined the voice. I gave the demon another jab.
It’s going to get a lot worse. I poked it again to make my point.
Not until you tell me what I want to know. How did you find us?Caleb calmly reached for his water glass and took a sip. When he was finished, I found myself recaptured in his gaze. One thing you should know about me, Ava, is that I’m a very determined man. When I want something, I usually get it.
My heart stuttered in my chest. What exactly did that mean? And you want …?Quite abruptly he scowled. I’m stuck here, which frankly pisses me off. Now I can spend my free time in the evenings being pissed off or I can spend them in bed with you. I know which one I’d prefer. And if you’d stop lying tae yourself, you’d admit that you want another go-around with me.
Was there ever a more obnoxious man alive? My blood was hot with anger. Do you ever think about what you’re going to say before you say it?You’re offended? He raised an eyebrow.
