*Also on Wattpad*
"I mean this sincerely with every fiber of my being, I find you to be vile and extremely repugnant. I have the most extreme contempt for you and I loath you completely."

With that said he thrusts forward towards Victoria, heated hostility in his eyes and a wood stake clutched tightly in his fist.

Maybe this vampire had bit off more than she could chew. Does she really think she'll be able to keep her secret forever? As if having a curious mortal man on her hands isn't enough, an experienced bloodthirsty vampire bent on revenge, with bitterness and unrelenting hatred in his heart, is determined to get his hands on her, to destroy her once and for all.


22. Chapter Twenty

I hear a low guttural yell, followed by a loud, long hiss. I felt a slight breeze as someone knocks Carter off of me, he flies through the air, he lets out a low growl as his body hits the ground with a heavy thump.   

"Victoria? Victoria are you...

The voice stops suddenly as Carter thrust himself upon the man, they roll across the ground, their claws lash out at each other. I rise off the ground ready to dash away and make my escape, but I stop short. My body becomes cold like fridged ice, my heart drops as I realize who it was that had saved me. Charles! What are you doing here? How did you find me? More importantly, why did you save me?

I shake my head feeling stupid for not recognizing him sooner, it was my fear that had prevented from doing so I'm sure of that. But, what I'm going to do? How can I save him? I could run and hope Carter pursues me and lets Charles be. Coward, I scold myself, you know he would kill Charles, then he would worry about catching me.

I gather my courage, "Carter, leave him be! Your fight is with me, surely you have not forgotten what I've done so quickly, have you?"

He lifts Charles off the ground, he tosses him aside. I see Charles is hurt, but he shall heal. With speed much greater than mine, Carter rushes forward, he seizes me by my throat, lifting me off the ground he pushes his face into mine, with a low gravelly voice he whispers to me.

"I will never forget." A devilish look plays over his face, "You care for him," he looks towards Charles, "I will kill him in front of you, you will see him die, then I shall kill you."

I scream out, "Run! Charles go."

Carter squeezes my throat harder to prevent me from yelling out. Charles jumps to his feet, he dashes towards Carter. Carter thrust his hand out in front of him, Charles bounces off his hand knocking him backward. I claw madly at Carter's other hand trying to make him release his grip on me, Charles regains his composure, he jumps onto Carter's back, he starts to claw at his skin, Carter finally releases me, I fall to the ground landing on my back end. Carter thrashes about madly, at certain times landing on all fours as he scampers across the ground. I can hear hissing and low growls coming from both Charles and Carter.

With my hands, I push myself up off of the ground. I help Charles attack Carter, we both claw at him madly, we know without the wood stake that had gotten lost during our fight, we could not kill Carter, but maybe we can, however, slow him down, making it possible for Charles and me to escape.

With our combined strength, our clawing at Carter, Charles and I had managed to injure him just enough to bring him down, but I worry that at the possibility that he might not be down long enough for us to escape.


Making sure we are far away from Carter, Charles and I finally stop. I look at him, "It's been a long time."

I couldn't manage to say anything else, and I hadn't intended to say that. His hands quiver slightly as he reaches up to touch my face, he touches me so softly, barely grazing my cheek with the tip of his outstretched fingers. 

It had come to be very apparent that I can only feel and show emotion with him, and him alone. A vampire's curse, only being able to have emotions with the one it truly loves. I see by the look on his face he wants to know why I had left him.

I turn away, unable to bring myself to face him, "All of this was wrong. I shouldn't have changed you, I should never have brought you to me in the first place. You were no saint, but I damned your soul. And for what?" I pause a moment, "For my own foolish, selfish reasons. I turned you because I love you, but I was weak, for if my love was stronger I would not have turned you at all."

"I wanted this. I wanted to be with you, I still want to be with you." He comes very close behind me, he wraps arms loving around me. "I loved you then, I love you now."

"I'm not worth what you did tonight. Carter never let's go of anything, now he shall hunger to kill you just because of me."

"Victoria stop it." He kisses my cheek ever so lightly, "Please, if you truly love me, let me love you."

He squeezes me tighter, pulls me farther into his gentle, loving touch. "If we can truly love each other, there must be some good in us, let us hold onto that thread of goodness."
