Rose was scared, I could tell. She stank of fear. It was odd, because although on the outside I was acting normal, her fear made me feel like I was hunting on the inside. I kept calm, but I had to get out of the house. So when I was invited to stay for just a few minutes and Rose's mind was practically screaming at me to leave, I had to make my excuses.

Outside I took a deep breath of the cold night air and stopped. I could smell a vampire in my house, besides Iva. Then I relaxed. Just Witt. He'd fed, so he smelled different. I ran in to the house, up the stairs and leaped straight in to his lap.

"Hello." He grinned. "You look excited."

"The girl that's moved in is called Rose, and she's...strange. Well no, she's a normal human, but she was scared of me. It felt like I was hunting her just standing in her lounge. She's amazing."

"So basically you just got high off a girl's fear."


"Nice. While I just got high of a girl's blood."

"Oh really?" I gave him that raised eyebrow look. He kissed me.

"Mmm, I love it when you do that."

"What? The eyebrow thing? I thought you did."

"That's why you do it all the time is it?"


He took my hand and massaged it with his thumb. "So do I get to meet this girl or are you keeping me under surveillance ?"

"Hmmm, I'll think about it."

The End
