Chapter 6 – I'm Dangerous?

Cage

I was certain she had told me everything she knew. And unfortunately, she knew nothing that would reveal why she carried a unique bloodline vampire scent.

I stood then. This was the part I had been dreading. She looked at me suspiciously as I joined her on the couch. I leaned toward her and whispered, "I'm sorry...I'll make it quick."

Her big blue doe eyes opened wide and her lip quivered again. "Make what quick?"

I told her the truth. She deserved that at least. "You are dangerous. I can't let you live. I don't want to do this, but I have no choice."

"I'm dangerous?" she asked incredulously as large tears crested her eyelashes and flowed down her cheeks. I resisted the impulse to gently wipe them away. I didn't have the answer to her question. I had to take her life, but everything in me wanted to walk away.

"No, I won't let you do that!" Fury rolled over her features, her entire body tensing for my attack.

I hated to see the haunted and fearful expression on her face as she prepared to fight for her life. Maybe I shouldn't have told her what was coming. I said quietly, "You know you can't fight me. You didn't want to believe it, but you know I spoke the truth. I am a vampire."

"I don't give a shit what you are! I am not just going to accept death!" she spat viciously, her fingers balled into fists.

"Dulce Tigru..." I murmured softly.

She was so full of fire.

But it was time.

Suddenly, her eyes glazed over and she whispered, "Do you feel that?"

I stared at her in confusion. Not only because of her odd question, but also the dramatic shift in her body. Her heart rate slowed and she became perfectly still, her eyes a million miles away.

"Feel what?"

She responded hypnotically, "It's a gentle hum...A vibration in the air. You don't feel or hear that?" She held her fingertips up as if trying to touch whatever it was in the air.

Anxiety coursed through me and I wondered if she was playing a game in an attempt to get free. But if she were lying, her heart rate would not have slowed so significantly. I had assumed she was lucid...she hadn't sounded crazy when we spoke...but I had no idea what to make of her behavior now.

A loud knock at the door interrupted us. I stiffened. Her attention snapped back to the present, and she whipped her head toward the door, hopeful for help. I silenced her with a low warning, "If you scream, I will kill them too."

She shuddered and nodded.

I crossed the room in a blur and looked out the peephole. A gentleman in a chalet uniform stood with a rolling serving cart.

Something was wrong.

I could smell three humans, which meant the other two were hidden from sight.

"Room service for Raine Deonte," a man's booming voice could be heard from behind the door.

I looked back at her sharply.

She shook her head quickly and mouthed. "I didn't order anything!"

I motioned her forward with my hand. She stood hesitantly and joined me by the door. I mouthed, "Tell them to go away."

Her voice shook slightly as she spoke without opening the door, "You have the wrong person. I didn't order any room service and I'm not hungry. Please take it away."
