Vampire Friday o7.1o.15

Welcome to Vampire Friday, my favorite day of the week!

We continue on from where we last left off: where Jake had kissed Karlea and met Vaughn on the stairs after. Vaughn calling Jake hopeless...
"Perhaps." Jake just smiled.
Vaughn thought he was too happy to not have gotten something from Karlea.
"You did bite her at least, right?" Vaughn said.
Jake just shrugged his shoulders and raised his eyebrows. Vaughn stopped dead in his tracks to read Jake's blood. Then caught back up with him.
"You kissed her."
"That alcohol must have really calmed the craving." Jake replied sarcastically.
Vaughn shook his head. "It doesn't calm it that much."

"I don't know." Jake said, seriously. "We were in the dark and I had the urge to kiss her, the urge to bite her was gone."
"When love takes over..." Vaughn said.
"Shit, Jake, you're in trouble. Loving a human, never goes well. You know that."
"I know." Jake said, sadly, reminded of his past. "But I'm not in love with her. I just met her."
"Keep telling yourself that." Vaughn said before disappearing, leaving Jake alone.
Jake decided to go by the dance floor and watch people dance, and contemplate the kiss.

When Vaughn showed up in front of the bar, Karlea had her back turned, stocking the shelves. She looked over her shoulder and saw Vaughn.
"Hey," she said, turning around, "need a drink?"
I so do, Vaughn said to himself.

"I was wondering if I could talk to you for a minute?" Vaughn smiled.
"Yeah, of course. Hold on."
Karlea quickly put the rest of the bottles on the shelf and broke down the box, shoving it behind the tall garbage can. She went over to Vaughn, facing him from across the bar. Vaughn looked around.
"Can we go somewhere a little more private?"
"Yeah, sure."
She walked down the length of the bar and exited, Vaughn standing right there. She went to question how he had gotten there so much faster than her, but she quickly dismissed it. Karlea followed Vaughn to an area of the club that wasn't as crowded. Vaughn reached back and grabbed her arm. He pulled her and wrapped his arm around her as he slammed her against the wall. He pulled slightly on her hair so he could expose her neck and then sunk his fangs in. Her blood was sweet and tasted as good as she smelled. He stopped himself and let go, wiping his mouth on his sleeve.
"Damn, you taste amazing." He said.
Karlea was breathing heavily.
"What are you?" She questioned calmly.
Vaughn put both of his hands on her face and looked into her eyes.
"You are captivating." He said.

"As are you." She replied.
"Vampire. But you need to forget all this now and go back to work as if nothing happened." Vaughn said, still staring into her eyes.
He kissed her forehead, "Bye Karlea, I will see you again soon."

He quickly bit his finger and wiped a drop of blood across her bite marks, healing them.
"Go." He said.
Karlea started to walk back to the bar, after a few feet she stopped, snapping out of her trance. She turned around, but Vaughn was nowhere. She was really confused of what had just happened - was she supposed to have a conversation with Vaughn or did she imagine that? No time to worry about it though, she looked at the bar and noticed the wave of people. She ran back over.

  1. Oh my, why the hell did he do that for? He is definitely not a nice buddy. I just want Jake to get really mad at him.
    And seeing how it goes with Armani on Sundays I feel so sorry for Jake.

    1. Vaughn definitely isn't a nice buddy nor a great sire to Jake. but it definitely could be worse!
      Thanks for reading!
