ON HIS WATCH
She never knew that his world existed. The supernatural was not something she was enamoured with, unlike most young women her age.
In the days of Twilight, Supernaturals, The Originals and Bitten, vampires, witches, werewolves and other supernatural creatures, she just wasn't interested. She just wanted to make it through university, graduate and have a career. If she meets a guy, fine. If not, fine.
She wasn't concerned. No one had every made her feel interested.
He watched her. From a distance. It was forbidden to reveal himself to her. Humans didn't do well when they learned that they were not the only species out there.
She was unspoiled by the world around her. Unbelievably so. Innocent in a way that he had not seen in centuries. She was pure and light. To have her as his was his one desire. Yet, they were worlds apart.
Then, she was attacked, and that very innocence stolen. With his rage brewing stronger and stronger, he broke the rules and came to her. Saving her at the last minute.
