Chapter 43I held her throughout the night, as her body shook and she sobbed at not only the horrific sight she witnessed but, the slaughter of her apartment. I rocked her all night long until she fell asleep in my arms. I laid her on my bed, and she snuggled into my scent. I watched her sleep for a few hours swearing an oath to protect her. Suddenly, I started to feel a crawling sensation go through me, my gums started to tingle. With horror, I realized then, that the beast at bay has only been laying dormant purposefully. It was waiting to have her here, so it could strike. I wrenched myself away from her, in detest of myself with a heavy heart, how could I have made her feel so safe when I was just as dangerous?
Chapter 44The next morning, I lay in bed in her arms again. I feel so blissfully happy however, the horrors of yesterday's events are fresh in my mind. I am ecstatic that she agreed to move in with me so suddenly but, this still spells danger! She is being hunted by that psychotic bitch, because of me! I do not know how she found out about her but, I know secrets never stay hidden in the Vampire world. I need to be honest with her and tell her the truth before Bathilda comes for her. I turn to my side in the bed and watch her dream. I could stare at her sleep forever, she is so beautiful, and I love that she is mine
Chapter 45I continue to drive around Portland, feeling like I am going nowhere, or have nowhere to go. I am terrified to come home and find her gone. I know that she would need her space, she should be a thousand miles away from me. It would be for her safety however, I also wonder what she meant by ‘being watched all her life” did someone already know about her before I did? Was it because she discovered the truth? Either way, that means she has been in danger for years. That is a scary thought, I am thankful that no one has attempted to harm her. I drive back to the penthouse, heart feeling like ice, as I walk inside and find her gone.
I left the Oregon mountain range, with a sole purpose in my mind. I needed to find Camille!I cannot believe that she abruptly left the way she did! No, goodbye, Nothing! The mere idea is painful. Do I mean nothing to her? Was I originally on sex ride all along? No, I cannot think like that! I know that Camille does not willing to do that with her teachers, and I felt Eliza’s pull towards me. What the fuck happened? I am not going to get any answers here! I need to leave. New York City here I come. I arrive back in Portland, I inform my brother of my imminent departure, I inform him that I need to return home, and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. My brother as always is completely understanding and wishes me a safe tri
The look on her face is confused but, with the knowledge that she is in trouble. ‘Yeah, you’re sweet little ass is in trouble for the little stunt you pulled!’ Mr. Gregory turns to the sound, and barks at her “Ms. Williams, clean that mess up!” she immediately lowers herself and does as she is asked. I want to scold him for his attitude but, he is not aware of our history. Instead, I approach her and help her. “Mr. Eldridge, you don’t have to help me,” she says “Mr. Eldridge? Have you forgotten me?” I ask her in a very low voice. She looks at me, she is trying to hide her longing. Eliza is pushing through, I know it.“My office in two hours, you have some explaining to do” I whisper to her. I stand up and walk away.
Chapter 48 Over the past year of my life, I have been living in bliss, I am still hyperaware of Bathilda’s threat. I have arranged security for Camille, and after a few months of dating she said she could not tolerate the idea of myself not waking up next to her so, she agreed to move in with me. I have never been happier. I know that things are going to change soon, Bathilda and her little group are deciding to play their hand. The tole of human casualties has started to rise. It is starting to make headlines, even for New York. I understand this, it is a challenge of my power. They want me to be Abner, they are going to continue to make the death toll rise until I do something about it. I am also aware of the threats I have been
Six months, it has been pure torture. Camille slipped into a coma. I had to inform Allison, who informed all of her family. Due to the destruction of the building, I switch all of my New York staff to virtual claiming that I was remodeling to building, effectively immediately. These past months have been pure agony. Doctors are skeptical that she will never wake up. I know my Camille though, she is a fighter! She will be alright! She has to be! I have been hell on wheels with the doctors trying to pull her plug. When they are not aware, I feed her some of my blood, anything to help give her further healing. I stayed by her side every single day, rarely leavi
