Selected, Laurent's Lab" The invitation came several days later, after I had given up all hope of ever earning an internship. An invitation to work for the King of Vampires. The most revered vampire in all of Moon City, and the only vampire still linked to Royal blood. ~~~~~ When Dalia was accepted to work in Laurent's Inc, she didn't expect to ever meet the King of Vampires, not until she finds that the gorgeous, cocky, ancient vampire had been the blue eyed tormentor of her wet dreams. The most ruthless of all vampires in Moon City, Jacob St. Laurent didn't get the title "King of Vampires" by being easily swayed or by falling in love. He would do anything in his power not to see that happen. But fate always had a way of being a b*tchView More
No, I shook my head rapidly, my eyes still wide with shock. It wasn't possible.Michael smiled and walked into the house, his eyes scanning the place.Sacha, the thought flickered in my head. Sacha was in the kitchen. He was going to see her if she stepped out."How've you been, darling. Did you miss me?" Michael asked, tilting his head a bit as his cold and callous eyes met with mineHow had I never noticed this before?How had I not noticed the cold and calculating nature behind his eyes?"What do you want?", I managed to ask even as my head was going haywire with what to do. "A lot of things, sweet cheeks", He answered and Sacha chose that horrible moment to step out. Her eyes were wide and there was a butcher knife in her clenched fists."Get out", she seethed and the tension in the air grew more rigid.No, I screamed in my head. Michael was dangerous, surely she was bluffing about confronting him with a butcher knife.I stepped in front of her as Michael's smile grew and his fan
I kissed him like my life depended on it... because maybe it did.Jacob hefted me up and my body folded around his, my legs wrapped around his waist and my body melted into him.This was what I had always wanted."We can't do this here", Jacob mumbled at me but kept on nibbling on my mouth.I pulled away, feeling elated as I searched his eyes."You can drop me now", I murmured, looking anywhere but at his mouth."You feel so comfortable right here", He smiled and my heart melted."Sydney and Claude will be back any moment and we still have the Dick situation", I said level headedly Jacob sighed and placed me carefully on my feet. "Come home with me"."No", I stated immediately and watched his head tilt in confusion."No?"I nodded, trying to hide my smile. I took a step back to at least find a breathing space from his magnetic presence."What do you mean, no?""You hurt me more than a couple of times", I answered matter of factly. "Don't you think I'd be stupid if I don't let you wor
Playlist- The power of love- Celine DionEveryone stayed quiet and watching...the questionable silence thickened the air.Dick blinked rapidly, glancing around at us in confusion.Well, I was more confused than he was, so he should probably get in line."Dick", Sydney called and he stared at herShit. This was getting totally out of hand."Your blood was supposed to heal him. How come it worked overtime and wiped him out?", I sassed, stressed and frustrated out of my mind.This was most definitely not how I saw my night going.I was hungry and clammy and fucking tired of it all. When was it going to end?The back and forth was tedious and tiring. You take one small step today and the next, you're taking a huge leap back."Something happened to him", Jacob broke the silence, his sleek loafers sounded against the floor as he walked up to Dick. "No shit", I mumbled under my breath and looked around the room for a place to sit or at least perch on."How did this whole situation happen?",
Dick choked and gag, trying to say something with his red face twisted in agony.I had no idea what the hell was going on and no one seemed to know."Let's get him to the car", Sydney ordered, already hefting his upper body and balancing his left arm on her shoulders.I ran to his other side and lifted him. Sacha took the key that Sydney held out and that's when we all noticed the large absence."Shit", Sydney cursed and I looked around. Detective Michael had disappeared from sight. Like vanished into thin air.The squad car was still parked in the lot but he was gone."Shit, shit, shit", Sydney repeated as we limped all the way to the car. Sacha threw open the door and we put a choking Dick into the car. We got in and Sydney pulled out of the lot, pressing her leg on the throttle and hightailing out of the street."Please tell me there is no relation between the Michael we know and the Michael, Dick talked about", Sacha asked from the backseat, her tiny voice sounding tinier."It'
"What?", I stared, stupefied. "Does Jacob know we're doing this?"Sydney scoffed, "I thought you would be gunning to make him rue"."Rue? In exchange for my safety?""You'll be safe", Sydney shrugged, pulling into the parking lot of the packed club. And when I meant packed, you'd think they were offering up a thousand dollar bonus. "I still don't understand what we're going to do here", I said, looking around the premises of the club and getting the creeps. I still didn't know how I had found myself from here to where we had seen Taenar's hideout. I wondered if Jacob had gone back there to investigate the hideout. Obviously they wouldn't be dumb enough to still be there after letting us go."Well girly here wants to search for the bloke named Michael""Michael?"I frowned at Dick. We were heading towards the throng of people lining up outside the club. "He's the one that I was talking about". "That did the thing"Dick used his hands to gesture at himself and it clicked in my head.
I felt like a loaded truck or my head felt like a loaded truck.I blinked my eyes open, the familiar comfort of my bedroom walls surrounding me. I was home.What time was it, I frowned, feeling the sheets for my phone.I turned it on, the brightness almost taking out my eyes. It was almost ten pmFuck, I had slept that long.I heard Sacha's footsteps before she knocked on my door, stepping in at my approval."You slept like a log. Have you not been sleeping well?, She pounced on the bed and got into my face.I wondered how much I was allowed to tell her.She and Kane were the best of friends anyone could ever ask for and they deserved to know what was happening. I also needed to tell them so I wouldn't go crazy from bottling it up inside. Plus, they might actually have a solution to State War peace or some love advice, I don't know."Your cheeks look hollow", she took my jaw in her palm then tsked. I hissed in response, flashing her my newly gotten kicks (which I was super proud of
Claude knocked on the door. I knew because his lavender sex scent filled the room and he hadn't even entered the room."Come in", I said briskly, wondering if he knew about the order and if that was why he was here.It hadn't been long since I had left the meeting room with my head hung. Jacob hadn't said anything to me.Claude opened the door and stepped in, closing the door softly behind him. I knew from his face that he had been given the order to see me back home."Hey", he said softly, his baby blues kind and not teasing for once."You're here to carry out your order, aren't you?", I asked with a dry laugh, perched on the edge of the bed. "Sydney and I are always on your side, you know?"I smiled, looking up at him. "What changed?""You being very easy to tease", He shrugged lightly, his fangs peaking out at his smile."Have you ever been in love?", I asked as the question popped into my mind.Claude's eyes grew dazed and I knew I had talked him far into his memories."Once", h
The meeting ended or it seemed like it had, as Jacob's uncle got up and excused himself. The elder senator followed immediately after, mumbling something under his breath. I felt eyes on me and I looked up at the two men studying me."You must be Dalia", the one with the straight black hair tied behind his head smiled and said. I nodded wearily, wondering what was funny at the moment. The other one had weird eyes. They were mismatched. Something I had not noticed and something I had never seen before."Heard a lot about you. I'm Naveen", the black haired one said and my eyes jumped back to him.So he was the Naveen, Sydney had talked about then. Were these people on beauty steroids? These couldn't possibly be all natural.Then I quickly realized that he had said something along the lines of 'heard a lot about you' and my frown deepened. Who had he heard about me from?Sydney?Claude maybe?I was about asking him when Jacob's velvety voice filled the air. "I'm sure you can resume
