2. The Nightclub

She strode in with her usual confidant swagger, although tonight it was falsetto, and dropped into a seat at the bar ordering her usual triple vodka with Malibu and cola. She turned to survey the scene. Who was here tonight? Her eyes drifted lazily over the crowd of people, she recognised a few of them but most of them she hadn’t really seen before. She watched her brother walk in with his girlfriend hanging off his arm. Her brother had midnight black hair that fell; the locks brushed his temple and his jaw. His skin was pale but clear of any blemish. He had high cheek bones that exuberated power and strength his face made up of hard planes of granite. His eyes were hard to define, they were definitely blue; one minuet like ice, another like the night, and at another like deep pools; they surveyed they world around him incessantly, tiered of what they saw yet trying to identify any good. His lips were light in colour and set in a firm line across his face but showed signs of the regular smiles that displayed a set of pearl white teeth dazzling an audience. The flawlessness of his face continued down his body; a strong neck continued into broad shoulders strong, long arms with strong slightly callous hands and long, strong fingers. His lean muscular frame sported broad shoulders narrow hips encased and a two tone red and black shirt with the top few buttons undone. He had long muscular legs that were accented by a pair of black slacks. The outfit should have made him look smaller less imposing but in fact it had the opposite effect it just showed off his intimidating height of six foot three. He gave off an air of absolute masculine virility, strength and dominance. He was powerful and had been turned the same night as her but he was two years younger than her. She had seen how happy his girlfriend made him and hoped that he would propose she wanted to see him happy.

 

She turned her focus to the girl who hung off his arm, a girl who was incredibly beautiful, and an innocent beautiful. Her sunshine blonde hair fell, the straight mass softly framing her lightly tanned face the loose, wispy strands feathering her cheeks. Her cheeks were tanned but accented by the lightest pink blush that touched skin below her high cheek bones. Her soft, doe like brown eyes were surrounded by a fan of black lashes as they surveyed they world around her impartial yet saddened by what they saw. Her lips were sweetest pink, candyfloss in colour and they were full when she smiled a set of pearl white teeth made an appearance. This is folowed by a slender neck which flows into her shoulders long arms with slender hands and long delicate fingers. Her breasts, full and weighty had been pushed up into a scarlet corset that fitted to her slender, lithe body perfectly her movements were graceful, elegant and delicate. She hand long legs that streamed out from under a short shocking red mini skirt till they met her feet encase into a pair of dangerous red spike heels. She was tall standing just shy of five seven without the heels.  She gave off an air of femininity and delicacy that belied the arrogant tilt of her head and the straight hold to her back. She was wise for her young age of twenty-five and had fought hard for any progress she made. Scarlet had a deep respect for the girl. However she couldn’t stop the jealousy that swelled in her belly and welled up till it began to creep onto the back of her tongue leaving a bitter taste.

           

Her thoughts were soon interrupted by the couple who once seeing her had headed straight for her. She could practically see the intense intangible waves of happiness they emitted her eyes flew to a flash on the girl’s finger; so Cole had finally proposed to Eleanor. A smile tugged at her lips even as jealousy rushed through her veins. She wanted what they had with a longing that consumed her she hadn’t thought about it for over a thousand years but recently her thoughts had strayed there frequently. They had reached her but no words needed to be exchanged instead they bought their own drinks and stood in front of her, they knew she knew and they  knew some topics should be studiously avoided.  “Scarlet come dance with me? Leave Cole to mingle with the guys and enjoy his freedom while it lasts. Plus you look like you can do with a ‘loosen up’ dance.” Her new sister grabbed her wrist and started pulling her to the dance floor and she put up only a mild resistance knowing that she did want to dance.  She smiled indulgently at the girl in front of her who was wearing a very similar outfit and had no cares about how she danced. Scarlet focused on the music feeling the beat pulse through her and began to move with the rhythm. “Gee sis mind teaching me how to dance like that? Your soooooo sexy up here.” She vaguely registered the response to her dancing but once it had filtered into her head she stopped focusing solely on dancing shifting it to the back of her mind instead focusing on her surroundings. “What?”

“You dance well good sis.”

“Do I? I’ve never thought so.”

“You dance well; you’re too harsh on yourself obviously.” This voice was male and came from behind her. She looked at her sister for a clue; she was gawking not at all encouraged by the response Scarlett whirled round and felt her jaw drop. Damn he was hot. His deep brown eyes were focused on her blazing with heat. He had high cheek bones that exuberated power and strength and transformed his face into hard masculine angles and flat granite planes. His lips were full and thoroughbly kissably she thought before reprimanding herself but they showed no signs of the regular smiles whicch she thought a pity as that would have softened his features considerably.  His body was also flawless; a strong neck continued into broad shoulders strong, long arms with strong hands and long, strong fingers. His lean muscular frame sported broad shoulders which tapered into narrow hips encased in a plain white jersey polo neck shirt. He had long muscular legs that were accented by a pair of black slacks. The outfit outlined his muscular physic; his broad shoulders narrow waist and his imposing height of six foot six. He gave off an air of absolute masculine virility, strength and dominance. “Oh my” the exclamation slipped past her lips before she could stop it and apparently he had perfect hearing because a sardonic smile tugged the one corner of his mouth. 

He’d watched her give the once over now it was his turn his eyes roved over her like fingers that lightly grazed the skin. Her obsidian black hair fell, the curls softly, framing her snow white face the loose, wispy ringlets feathering her cheeks. Her cheeks were pale accented by the lightest pink blush that touched skin below her high cheek bones that gave her a regal air. Her eyes, were hard to define, they were definitely blue; but they seemed to shift and swirl. They surveyed they world around her incessantly, always on the look for any signs of trouble. All the pale shades in her face were accented by the sweetest pink lips, candyfloss pink in colour and they were full . However her face was drawn with centuries of worry echoing across it. beneath her head a slender neck flowed into her shoulders long arms with slender hands and long delicate fingers. Her breasts were full and the only part of her that hinted at a slightly softer nature. Tonight they had been pushed up into a red and black corset that fitted to her slender, lithe body perfectly her movements were graceful, elegant and delicate. She hand long legs that streamed out from under a short black mini skirt till they met her feet encase into a pair of dangerous black spike heels. She was tall standing at six foot without the heels.  She gave off an air of strength and sexual dominance; she was lioness in her own right. “My, oh my. What a catch” he said with a smile of appreciation. Her eyes flew to meet his defiance sparkled in the depths. Yep he defiantly had her pegged right; fiercely independent; quick thinker, smart and sexy as hell. “I don’t believe we’ve met before.” She delivered in steel tones. “No we haven’t. My name is Lucifer. And yours is?” amusement tingeing the words. “Scarlett.” She replied in a flat uninterested tone as she could muster. Her emotions were whirling her thoughts muddled her mouth dry and she wasn’t sure if she wanted to hurl or faint. This guy wasn’t good for her she decided.

He turned his attention to the pretty blonde at Scarlett’s side. “You dance good as well I don’t think you need her help.” He flashed them a million dollar that threatened to send Scarlett into a swoon.  She was brought swiftly back to attention when her soon to be sister in-law asked “Scarlett? Scarlett are you ok do you want to go sit down? God you look even paler than normal.”

“What? No I’m fine.”

“I think you need to go sit down.” He slipped his hand round her waist and began to lead her off the dance floor he left no room for her to argue with him. Since when had that stopped her? She pushed his hand away from her “I’m fine.” She tried to step away but he caught hold her swiftly pulling her snuggly against him “I know but that’s not the point.”

 “Then what is?” she was playing this game the human way why didn’t she play this the vamp way. She looked him in the eye and used a little mind control slipping into his head she placed some ideas into his head that should influence a humans actions. She felt him stiffen but he didn’t do what she tried to get him to do. Wait how did he do that? No human could break a vampire’s influence. “Tut tut my dear. Mind control what a cheap trick.”

“You shouldn’t even know. How did you break it?” His eyes clouded with pain before he answered “Vampire, my father was … is a vampire and he turned me” She noted the tone of raw heartbreak and utter self-loathing in his voice and against her own will she reached out and placed a hand over his heart in a comforting gesture “tell me what happened.” She delivered it as an instruction leaving no room for him to argue. He looked at her is face twisted by a series of emotions fighting a battle within him. No sooner had the emotions raised their head then they disappeared. His brown eyes seemed black now infinitely deep empty pits that showed no soul. “No, you don’t want me to tell that tale, angel.” His voice, mocking and hard, made her shiver inside. She moved back a bit she wanted to help him but now wasn’t the time. “Well since we both feel so good now why don’t we join my future sister in-law on the dance floor.” She grabbed hold of his wrist and began pulling him towards the dance floor in the same way Eleanor had done with her only a few moments ago.  He followed not far behind admiring the sultry sway to her hips as she moved in those lethal high heels. He felt his body begin to react to her, he was sure that length skirt should be illegal if a women had such long legs and that black corset fitted her skin far too snugly. Images of the ways he could remove all that sexy clothing and of those long sexy legs wrapped around him began to flash through his mind. “Uh-uh not happening mister.”

“What’s not happening?”

 “Those thoughts going through your mind you dirty man you barely even know me.” A cheeky smile crossed her lips “well not yet anyway.” She gave him a sidelong glance as the edged their way amongst other dancing couples. She had seen the way his face lit up at her comment a sly grin crossed his face giving her a slight warning. “Give me a chance and I’m sure I would know you very well in very little time.” Her breath hissed through her teeth before she could catch it. “Oh that’s sly.” She whispered to him but her body was reacting very differently to his statement. Her mouth felt dry her nerves tingled heat built and spilled between her thighs and her legs felt strangely weak. Sensing her reaction he gave an amused smile. “Ahhh you don’t seem to mind that much my dear.” Infuriated by his knowledge she pushed herself away from him.

“Oh look at that time I really should get going.” Turning to find Eleanor at her side she said “great to see you but I’ve got to go feel free to drop in on me at any point.” The she whirled on her heel and stalked out. Once outside she started to run using her super human speed to whip her hair round as she ran she tried to drown the thoughts of what had just happened in the club. She hadn’t reacted in that way toward a man for more than a millennium. She ran up the large marble steps leading to her large porch. She reached her door and took out her key using the time to feel her surroundings searching for any danger and Lucifer she was both disappointed and relieved to find he wasn’t there.

Lucifer hang a second her brain tripped over the name as memory struck that was the name of the vampire lord’s son. OMG she had just danced with the vampire lord’s half breed son, what was more she had enjoyed every second of it.

He stood still watching as she stalked out the room. So that was the girl his father had chosen to track him, interesting. Settling his thoughts he half turned to the blonde girl. “I’m sorry I don’t think I ever heard your name …?” “Eleanor. What did you do to her I don’t think I’ve ever seen her leave this early?”

 “I don’t know. I don’t normally have that effect on women,”

 “Mmmm interesting she doesn’t usually react that way to men; I think there was something different between the two of you though.” He turned from the exit focusing his full attention on the girl “What?!” he sputtered. “She liked you. She never likes guys. She puts herself on show she likes the attention but she doesn’t like the guys. It’s her against the world. She needs someone to save her.” She looked up at him her eyes assessing him seemingly satisfied she turned to face Cole and said over her shoulder “come with me to visit her tomorrow.”

“Doesn’t she sleep during the day?”

 “Only a few hours”
