MidWeek Tease o6.o6.18

Welcome to MidWeek Tease! Thanks to Angelica Dawson for hosting this fun blog hop!

I have been MIA for months. I work at an elementary school and the school year just got totally crazy, I couldn't keep up with my creative life :( We have 12 days left of the school year and thankfully I have summer off! So, where we last left off in my story here, Anton (a vampire) was feeding from a human donor before his big date with a human woman...
Marlena watched closely as I drank and drank. Jax’s body becoming weak beneath me, but his heart was still okay. I signaled to Marlena that he was fine, not wanting that stake in me. His blood helping to calm the monster. I did as I was trusted and held him, bringing him to the sofa as I still drank. Marlena obviously didn’t trust me and checked the pulse in his wrist, as she sat next to him. She was right in not trusting me. A part of me did want to lie to her, so I could keep drinking to the very end. She was smart in checking his pulse, it would make my decision of whether or not to stop in time, much easier.
His heart started to weaken fast, I pulled away quickly. That was harder than it looked, but I had the image of Charlotte’s eyes in my mind and the thought of how disappointed she would be in me if I had killed.
I looked at Marlena. My eyes and fangs must have scared her this time because she asked, “Am I safe?”
She held tightly onto the stake, awaiting my reply.
“Yes, Jax settled the monster, calmed the craving. I am no more hungry than when you usually come. There is nothing to fear.” I wasn’t lying to her, but my Romanian accent came out thick and I spoke the way the old me spoke back in the 1800’s.
“No offence, Anton, but I don’t trust you, so I’m holding onto this while you feed.”
“I understand. And I’m still only taking it from your wrist.”
Marlena positioned herself comfortably on the sofa. I sat next to her and she made sure she was at an angle where she could stake me if needed. I drank until she started to become weak, wanting to show her I meant no harm, and she could trust me again.
“You can take a bit more, I trust you will stop. I don’t want you to relapse while on your date, that would be awful. Please,” She said, still holding her wrist out to me, “be full.”
I drank more until she was unconscious like Jax. I carefully placed her on Jax, resting on him, so they would come to, together.

I looked at them, wishing I could have the love and companionship they had. They had been through so much together, and their work was so dangerous, but they did it together knowing that one night, one of them may not return. I made a promise to them that in time or if anything happened to either one of them, that I would turn them. I really didn’t want to turn anyone with this gift I had, but they had done so much for me in the twenty years I knew them that if they wanted it, it was the least I could do for them.

MidWeek Tease o4.11.18


Welcome to MidWeek Tease! Thanks to Angelica Dawson for hosting this fun blog hop!

We last left in Anton's point of view, where the hunger was starting to get to him...

At sundown, I awoke to a hunger I had never felt before. I have gone days without feeding, but this hunger was so different, so much more intense. I wanted to feed, kill, and fuck all at the same time. The erotic dreams I had of Charlotte did not help - some that involved her blood, some that involved her sex, and some that mixed both.
I climbed slowly out of bed and dressed. Part of me wanted to stay in bed and keep sleeping, but this hunger would only get worse the longer I went. Jax would be arriving soon. I quickly checked my messages, my business partner saying to check my front door.
I struggled against the extreme hunger as I made my way through the penthouse.
I felt as though I could kill the whole city in a bloodbath.

Outside the front door sat a sealed box. I could hear glass bottles clanging against each other as I carried the box inside. I set it down on the island counter and opened it, pulling out a bottle of Kentucky homemade moonshine. I quickly poured a glass and took as shot. It was so strong. If I had been human the taste wouldn’t have been so awful. I waited for it to have some kind of an effect, but it wasn’t happening. I took a bunch more, but it didn’t do anything to stop the hunger. I needed Jax to get here, but at the same time, I wasn’t sure it was safe for him to be in my presence.
I also needed to text Charlotte and make plans, hopefully I would be able to hold it together enough for tonight. Right now, I couldn’t even hold it together enough to text her. I was afraid I would slip and say something like, I want to tear you apart and feast on your heart. Which is something I did want at this moment. That wouldn’t come off as serial killer-ish or anything to a human.

I set down my phone, the urge to text her was too great. Besides I could barely hold onto my phone, I was shaking so uncontrollably.

A knock on the door, shook me from the horrible killing fantasies I fell into. I opened the door slightly, hiding behind it.
“I don’t know if its safe for you, Jax.” I said.
“That’s why I’m here, too.” Marlena replied. She entered into the penthouse and looked at me.
“Shit, Anton. You look horrible.” She said.
Jax entered. “We’re both here, Anton. You can feed from both of us.”
“Thank you.” I managed.
We made our way over to the sofa. Marlena with a stake in hand, ready in case I couldn’t stop before Jax’s heart did.
Jax loosened the collar on his shirt. As soon as I saw his exposed throat I was on him, sinking my fangs in, before he could even get comfortable on the sofa.
“Jesus, Anton.” He said. He didn’t try to fight me, he instead relaxed his body and let me take what I needed, having faith in me that I would hold him up and not let his body hit the floor when he became too weak.

WeWriWa o4.o8.18

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors / Snippet Sunday! And Happy Spring! I am so excited it is April and winter is (hopefully) behind us.

Where we last left off, Armani brought Karlea a cell phone and was going to let her call Jake, only she couldn't remember his phone number...

Armani walked towards her, he took the phone from her hands. He took her hand and brought her wrist to his mouth. He bit down, taking a few sips before letting go. He dialed the rest of Jake's number and handed her the phone.
"Thanks.." Karlea trailed off as she looked at the number.
It still didn't look familiar to her. She paused before hitting the call button, a strange feeling creeping up in her. Part of her wanted to hit the button and start screaming for Jake into the phone and the other part of her wanted to throw the phone as far as she could.
Armani vanished in front of her, giving her some privacy.

WeWriWa o4.o1.18

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors / Snippet Sunday! And Happy Spring! I am so excited it is April and winter is (hopefully) behind us.

Where we last left off, Armani brought Karlea a cell phone and was going to let her call Jake...
Karlea picked up the phone and looked at it...this could be her freedom. She went to dial...212...her head was such a mess that she couldn't remember Jake's number. She knew it, she memorized as soon as she put the number in her phone...but now she couldn't.
"Is there a problem?"Armani asked.
"I-I can't remember his phone number. I know it, I always have, but my head is such a mess."

WeWriWa 03.25.18

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors / Snippet Sunday!

We continue where we left off last week... where Armani disappeared from the room and then brought back a cell phone.

Karlea looked at it. It wasn't hers. Hers was still in Manhattan somewhere. And it wasn't Armani's that she remembered.
"You can call your precious Jake. If he still wants you and comes for you, you are free to go. But his blood can't help you. Hopefully he's smart enough to tell you not to kill yourself."
Karlea picked up the phone and looked at it...this could be her freedom.

MidWeek Tease o3.21.18

Welcome to MidWeek Tease! Thanks to Angelica Dawson for hosting this fun blog hop!
We continue on where we left off last, Charlotte is opening the museum and finds that Anton is gifting her some of his artwork. She had texted him to thank him in the last snippet I shared. We are in Anton's p.o.v...
I had layed awake for hours on my bed, still in my t-shirt and suit pants from the night before, staring at the ceiling. The hunger was making it hard for me to sleep the day away, which was making my date tonight seem even further away. I needed to be in top shape to be that close to a human I was interested in and who did such things to me as she did. A good day’s sleep would be one of those requirements.


I grabbed my phone off the nightstand, not realizing that I had forgotten to charge it - my mind so occupied with other things. I plugged it in and set it back on the nightstand. A few minutes later, it powered on, the starting tone ringing in the room. I tried to shut my eyes again, but incessant tones of messages popping up on my phone made me open them almost instantly. Why couldn’t the rest of the world be on my sleep schedule?
Then i heard the special tone I had set for Charlotte go off. I grabbed my phone, first silencing everything that wasn’t a priority, which was pretty much everything for a Saturday, and then opening her text.
I read her text and responded, that she was worth more than my art pieces, that I wanted her to have them. It took her a few minutes to respond, thanking me again.
She then sent another text, “The museum is insanely busy, somebody’s exhibit is really popular :)”
And with that, I texted her that I would talk to her later this evening to make plans for tonight before wishing her a beautiful rest of the day.

I decided that maybe disrobing then trying to sleep might be a good idea. As I settled in under the covers, I thought about her green eyes soothing me to sleep.

WeWriWa o3.18.18

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors / Snippet Sunday!

We continue on where we last left off a few weeks ago...Karlea is feeling the after effects of her blood high. I think where we last left off, she was asking to see Jake.

Armani scooped her off the floor and set her on her feet. He looked at her and shook his head.
"Stay here." He commanded, and then vanished. 

Karlea looked around and quickly ran for the hallway as best as she could.  She felt Armani's grip on her arm as he dragged her back into the bedroom. 
"You're not going anywhere. I told you to stay here, I would prefer not to have to use mind control on you, but I will if I have to next time."
"Here." He said, as Karlea watched him drop a cell phone on the bed.


Thanks for reading! I'll do what I can this week. Still fighting sickness and on round three of antibiotics. I am really not enjoying this winter.
