Chapter 14:


Her heart beat like drums with the possibilities that this night could bring. Licking her suddenly dry lips, she sat up straighter on her bed as she looked imploringly at Vincent. “What has the necklace got to do with anything? You never really answered.” She would start with that one, she decided. Vincent nodded and then sat beside her, taking her hand in his. “It’s a long story, but that necklace controls me in a sense. It controls my heart, because in essence it is my heart.” Wendy gasped as she picked up the ruby locket and looked at it closer, with it now seeming to weigh more.

“H-How?” She asked still looking at the fine detailed necklace. Vincent sighed and looked to the window, “A witch by the name of Serafine, charmed the necklace in hopes that it would force me to love her….this was hundreds of years ago. We met as I was hunting for another feed and I happened to fall upon her. Compulsion doesn’t work on witches as I quickly found out. The night was dark and cold and I found it odd that a young damsel was out on her own. Not caring since all I wanted was to quench my thirst, I then bit her.” He looked down at Wendy with a faraway look in his eyes.

“She didn’t scream, didn’t move…just stood there and waited for me to finish. It was startling but when I tried to make her forget, it wouldn’t work. She simply started to walk away while I was panicking. I had never crossed a witch before therefore I’ve never had that happen. Deciding it would be probably best to kill her and I was about to when she turned around. ‘Follow me Vampire…’ her voice…” Vincent trailed off before shaking his head. Wendy wouldn’t admit it but she was starting to feel the telltale signs of jealousy. “Something about her urged me to follow her, and so I did. No words were spoken during the short journey into the woods. Little did I know I was following a snake.” Wendy took shameless pleasure knowing he doesn’t like the girl from the tone he was using.

“We got to her place and I followed her inside like a lost puppy. Her blood was still coursing through my veins, so I was still feeling this weightless kind of aura around myself. Well after a moment we…uh,…we got intimate-“ Wendy’s face burned as she uttered a small, “Oh.” Vincent paused and held her face in his hands. “I wish I could take it back-“ This time Wendy cut him off, “No, no continue. What’s done is done.” He nodded but didn’t continue until he kissed her forehead.
