"Kiss me," he repeated. "Now, while there is nothing making you. You aren't under some vampire spell. It's just us, sitting here. Kiss me."

I tried, I really did, but I found out when the thirst takes control there's not really a whole hell of a lot you can do. I felt tears roll down my face as my lips met his flesh and my canines sank into his neck. He jerked slightly but then went limp, and a sigh of ecstasy escaped from his mouth.

Her thighs were clamped to my side, making it impossible to go for my guns and I felt her nails already digging into my throat. Something told me that it wouldn't be any problem whatsoever for her to rip my head right off of my shoulders.

"Uh, where's the rest of it?"

Black and red leather pants and a matching… uh. I don't have a clue. It was small.

Steve was standing there facing the street when I opened the front door. He turned around and I blinked at his appearance.

"Lachesis, measurer of the Threads of Fate, hear my plea."

It was only seven days ago when I made that request. I had been studying Wiccan magic for almost a year. Funny thing about spell-casting; spells are really simple. If you want to request something, you can burn a candle and make your request from the Goddess, or you can leave an offering, a flower, a coin, maybe a little wine, under a tree. The trick is not to make your request too specific.

Snakes and Ladders-40

*** Kyte…

I was shocked more than Ilisa was when princess Shaya left me in charge and I could literally see Rafe stop when he heard that and he did a double take. He asked the men with him and he asked some of the men here and he looked at me with that look of disbelief and he smiled afterwards.

“Congratulations, it does seem that you’ve matured and that there was something that went on here that was a major battle.”

I know that smile’s a fake but I nod and I say. “This was far more than political rebels Rafe. It was filled with the dark races and we had a hard fought battle to take this place and even ended up doing battle with some of the traitors that support Lyam here too.”
