If only she hadn’t been so curious. But that had always been a flaw of hers, and her mother had warned her that it would get Jane into trouble one day. Well, today was that day. Down in the huge barrel were guns. Not just any guns, but fully automatic weapons without any kind of serial numbers to identify them by. Jane gulped loudly and started backing away. Maybe she could leave and forget that any of this ever happened.
Her hopes were dashed aside as the back door creaked open loudly and two bulky men in suits stepped outside, glaring at her and especially the camera in her hand. Realization hit Jane that the men thought she was taking pictures of the guns. It would probably be best if she handed them the camera, explain that she was just sight-seeing, and then leave. Instead, she ran.
Putting every ounce of energy she had into her legs, Jane pumped them as fast as they would go, but the two men breathed down her neck, making the hairs stand on end in fear. Large arms grabbed her around the waist and brought her down to the ground with an oomph. As she lay still gasping, trying to catch her breath, Goon #1 grabbed her arms and hauled her roughly to her feet. Pulling away from the man as hard as she could, Jane kicked out at him, connecting with his shin. He grunted in pain as his eyes became bloodshot and watery. Goon #2 watched for a moment with mild amusement before pulling out a switch blade. The click of metal made Jane pause and watch the long blade spring into sight. The edge glinted in the remaining rays of sunlight, inciting a fear in her heart that made her legs suddenly feel like jelly.
“Please don’t hurt me,” she stammered.
The goons grinned and laughed as Goon #2 brought the blade up to her face, nicking her cheek just enough to draw a line of blood to the surface along with a burn to her skin. The man came close enough that Jane could smell the whiskey on his breath. He whispered in her ear, “You’re a pretty hot mess. Want to know what we do to unsuspecting women that come into our territory?”
Death. Grief. Murder. Love. The life of a vampire is complicated like that. For Hadrian and Corina, the effect of Laine Grant’s death has caused some unforeseen circumstances. Putting everything back together is proving to be a challenge when new players enter the game and love is all they have to hold onto as things twist out of control.
