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.

Thanks for reading! You can read more amazing authors here and here.

Enjoy your Sunday!

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.

WeWriWa o3.o4.18

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors / Snippet Sunday!

We continue on where we left off last week...

Karlea threw on what was left of her dress, just to be clothed, plus she was also deathly cold. Her dress was tattered and torn from everything she had endured over the last few days. This being bound and owned part of the vampire world, she was not familiar with. Jake and Vaughn never treated her like this. 
“I need to get away from you! I need Jake, he can tell me what to do.”
“Jake can’t help you. There is nothing he can do. Besides are you sure he still wants you? He did leave you alone in the club.”
(Side note: Blogger formatted this last line weird. Idk why, not fighting with it.)

Thanks for reading! And thank you for all the great comments! i havent been responding to comments, nor making it around to blogs. I'm still sick, on round #2 of antibiotics, so between work and the kids, I'm having a hard time keeping up. This round of antibiotics is stronger, they make me super tired.

Vampire Friday o3.o2.18

Welcome to Vampire Friday!
We continue where we left off last week...
"Here." Karlea said, as she set a drink of whiskey on the bar in front of Jake. He looked at it and looked at her. "Its the least I can do while you sit there and watch me work."
She smiled and went back to setting up the bar for the night. Jake finished texting Vaugh then watched her dance around behind the bar as she set more bottles of alcohol on the shelves. The DJ already getting his set up running, turning his mixes on lower than club volume, so everyone could still hear each other. 
Karlea came back over stocking cherries, limes, lemon, and orange slices. 
"Hey Girl, feeling better?" Karlea's co-bartender, Tammy, said as she entered behind the bar.
"Yeah, I was really sick. Couldn't get out of bed." Karlea replied, staring at Jake.
"Here," Tammy said handing her a packaged salad, "Maybe if you ate sometimes, you wouldn't get so sick. You're way to skinny."

"Oh my god, I'm actually so hungry. Thanks, Tammy." Karlea replied as she quickly opened the salad and dug into it.
"I totally forgot to feed you. I'm so sorry." Jake said.
Tammy glared at him for a second. "Ugh, guys." She said before walking off. 

Karlea laughed, looking at Jake, "If she only knew."
"You fed me and I totally forgot to feed you." Jake replied, concerned.
"Its okay, I'm sure you're not used to having a human in the house." She replied, quietly.
"True, but I need to have food for you. Also need to get you some B6 supplements, if I'm going to be drinking from you. You need to keep your strength up or you will be unconscious in my bed for most of your existence."
"I don't mind being in your bed, but I'd prefer to be conscious." She shot back with a wicked smile on her face.
She went back to her salad as she finished setting up. 

"Karlea," Matt called from the other end of the bar, "here go get the cash drawers from the safe."
He threw his keys with force at her. Karlea attempted to catch them but they hit her hand before landing with a loud thud on the floor.
"Ouch." She yelled, "Damn it, Matt, you know I'm not like you."

Matt chuckled. When Karlea had returned tonight to the club, her, Jake and Matt had to have a talk to let Matt know what was going on. Jake let her in beforehand that Matt was actually a vampire, too, along with some of the security guards. Matt already was aware of something going on between Danny and Luna, that involved dragging Karlea into it. But it wasn't until tonight that he knew that Reed was the one looking for Karlea. 

Jake was too busy staring off towards the door sensing something, as Karlea walked off towards Matt's office. Jake looked over at Matt, as Matt, too, caught the scent of vampires. He rushed over to Jake's side as they watched towards the door.
"Reed." Jake said, "I can feel him in my blood."

Oh no, Karlea might be in trouble...
