- Intro: She was drawn to him instantly... and he's waited an eternity for her.
She ran til she couldn't run any longer. Had she lost him? Or it? Something was after her. This presence had been for weeks now and each time it was getting harder to escape. She leaned against the tree with her hands on her knees trying to catch her breath.
"God! I can't take much more of this." She said to herself standing upright now and pushing her hair out of her eyes. She heard the rustling of leaves behind her and the breaking of tree limbs. "Oh god, no." She took a deep gasping breath. The sound was getting closer. As she took off running her legs felt like lead, she could barley move them. What the hell? She thought to herself. It was like she was running in mud up to her ankles, it was nearly impossible. Her whole body was exhausted. Without even realizing it, the rustling behind her stopped. And so did she. She beat at her legs for circulation and looked around.
From behind her with no sound the hand whipped around her face and covered her mouth. She fought him, but to no avail. He spoke softly in her ear and she froze, but not from fright. It was confusion, complete and total confusion. He continued to speak to her and when his question was answered with a nod he removed his hand from her mouth. The next thing he spoke caused her to turn around and look at him. Instantly, she fainted. He swept her up quickly and left.
Alyssa sat up quickly from sleep. "Dammit." She ran her fingers through her hair. It was the sixth straight night in a row she had this dream. And it was wild because not only was it recurring, it was sequential. Things happened to her in this dream as though she were wide-awake. "Uh! We must do something about these dreams Alyssa Meade!" She pushed the covers off of her and crossed her legs Indian-style. "Mmm, I should've written these damn dreams down from day one. Well, I can remember the night before and last night's. So," She reached over to her nightstand and reached under for the legal pad. She grabbed the pen next to the alarm clock and began writing.
Her phone rang an hour later. She answered on the third ring. "It's Alyssa. Hey Shelly, what's up? It's in the stockroom, third shelf from the back on the left. No, your other left Shelly." Alyssa chuckled. "Mmm-hmm, those two DVDs along with the books next to it go to Mrs. Brewton. Yup. Fifteen percent off for being a frequent buyer. And Shelly? Give her a $10 coupon to the café with no expiration date. Okey doke. See ya tomorrow!" Alyssa hung up and looked to the legal pad. She had 5 pages of notes. "Damn." She flipped through the pages. "Remembered more than I thought." Alyssa read over what she wrote and then put the pad on the nightstand. She placed her feet on the floor and rested her hands on her knees. Thoughts of her last dream popped into her head. This time all she saw was his eyes...his black eyes. Was that even a color for eyes? She could see the outline of his face and features, but they were shadowed. His eyes were dark, focused, and mesmerizing. They were totally focused on her. Alyssa shivered and stood quickly. She ran her fingers through her hair. She stretched and took a deep breath. The scent overtook her immediately.
"What is that?" She sniffed again. It was a scent she couldn't recognize. It was a sweet, woodsy smell and it was alluring. She took a final sniff. "Wow." She shook her head. "I've got to get out of here."
Alyssa was dressed and out her door in 30 minutes. She drove downtown and lucked out with parking just minutes from her location. It was time to shop. There were a couple pairs of shoes calling her name at the shoe store. She was out an hour later. One down, two to go. The dress shop was next. She had success there in only 45 minutes. Final stop was her true obsession...dancing. She'd done it for 17 years faithfully. She first started dancing at seven years old and backed off once she hit 24. The tours were getting demanding and her time hadn't been her own for six years. She started dancing professionally at 17 and starred in many shows. Nutcracker, Romeo & Juliet, and Swan Lake were just to name a few. She was 28 now and still danced...leisurely. She was an assistant instructor at one of the local studios. She did that three nights a week to help supplement her income. Her job at the bookstore where she was assistant manager was her income. She worked 4 morning shifts a week along with an evening shift on Sundays. Alyssa had put her other bags in the car. As she entered the dance shop, she was greeted warmly. Everyone there knew her. The owner's daughter was one of the students. One of the younger associates was working today.
"Hi Morgan! How goes it?"
"It goes very well!" She held out her left hand and wiggled her ring finger.
"Shut up!" Alyssa grabbed her hand. "When did he ask you?" She looked at the ring.
"Last week at Disneyworld! Right in front of Cinderella's Castle, down on one knee. He drew a crowd!" Morgan bit her lip to fight off the tears.
"Did you just die?" Alyssa ran her forefinger over the ring.
"I did!" Morgan placed her hand to her heart. "I expected nothing at all. We stopped in front of the castle and he asked one of the CMs if they would videotape us. He said no problem. So we sit in front of Walt and Mickey and before I know it, he was down on one knee confessing his love for me. I lost it!" Morgan rolled her eyes and continued. "I'm trying to keep my bearings and then he pulls the damn ring out of the camera case. I was like no wonder he wouldn't let me carry it." Alyssa chuckled as Morgan continued. "Next thing I know a small crowd had formed and Tyler is quoting a poem he wrote especially for me, especially for the occasion!" Both ladies had tears falling. "He said to me I was his everything, I was the greatest gift he'd ever been given. He placed the ring on my finger and asked me would I do him the honor of becoming his wife." Morgan sighed. "Do him the honor! When I caught my breath and could speak I said yes. Tyler swept me into his arms and everyone around us broke into applause and cheers." Alyssa placed her hand to her mouth. "So in six months we're going back to Disney to say our vows." Morgan fanned herself with her hand.
"Wow." Alyssa said wiping her tears. "That's an amazing proposal. Congratulations!" She reached out to hug her.
"Thanks Alyssa." Morgan hugged her tightly then pulled away. "Whoo. Anything special you need today?"
"Nope. Just splurging...again." Alyssa turned and headed to her favorite section.
"Okay, just yell if you need me." Another customer came in. "Hi! How can I help you today?"
Several hours later, Alyssa was at the dance studio. It was 7:30 and she'd just finished up with her advanced juniors ballet class.
"The decision ultimately lies with Rebecca Mrs. Watkins, but she is more than ready to dance with our older teens. She's fourteen, but she's so far ahead of our other juniors she needs to be with our advanced teens class. The youngest is sixteen, the oldest nineteen, but Rebecca is more than ready to dance with them."
"Okay." Mrs. Watkins looked to her daughter who was putting on a pair of leggings as she chatted with another classmate. "I'll talk to her about it on the way home."
Alyssa smiled at her.
"See you next week." The mother said.
Alyssa waved to her. It was another fifteen minutes before the last student cleared out. Alyssa and the head instructor walked out together.
"So we're ready for the winter show?"
"I think so," Alyssa answered as she locked the door to the studio. "Everyone has been fitted for costumes which arrive next month, the auditorium is booked, and we're working on the numbers for the show. I think it's a fabulous idea Janet to have all the girls do a number together!" Alyssa put her keys into her bag. "It's gonna be a hit!"
"That's why I'm saving it for the finale." She smiled.
"Alright, see you tomorrow then."
Janet waved and left.
The studio shared a lot with for other offices. The one to the left of the studio wasn't occupied, so it surprised Alyssa to see someone stepping out. It was odd anyway as most of the businesses were closed by 6:00 o'clock. She shook it off and walked to her car. As she walked by her entire body felt as though it were on fire. She stopped to try and center herself. The person locking up at the empty building turned to look at her.
"Are you alright?" He asked.
Alyssa looked to him quickly. That voice, why did she know that voice? It was soft, deep, alluring, with a bit of an accent.
"I'm-I'm fine, thank you." She couldn't take her eyes off of him.
"Are you sure?" He asked as he twirled his keys around his finger a couple times as he took a step forward.
"Yes." Why was she having trouble forming thought? Why did she feel like a bumbling teenager meeting the captain of the football team for the first time?
Now he was directly in front of her. Alyssa's eyes locked in on his and she was a goner.
"Can I assist you in any way?"
It took a full ten seconds before she answered. "Huh?"
His lips curved slightly. He knew from the moment he saw her how delightful she'd be. "Is there anything I can do for you?"
"What? No-no, I'm fine." Idiot! Get it together Alyssa. "My car is right here." She pointed to his car, his BMW.
"That's my car." He smiled lazily.
"Oh." She chuckled nervously. "Mine's on the other side of yours then."
"Where are your keys?"
"My what?" Ditz!
"Your car keys. Makes it hard to drive without them." He was completely amused.
"They're right here." She reached into the pocket of the jacket she was wearing and pulled them out. He took them from her. He took her arm gently and walked her to her car. Why couldn't she stop staring at him? He unlocked the door and opened it for her. He helped her in and held out the keys. She just stared at them.
"You'll need these to drive." He teased swinging them back and forth.
"Oh yeah." She held out her hand and he dropped them in it. She caught herself staring again and kicked herself mentally. She started the car and looked to him again. "Thank you."
"You're quite welcome." He winked at her.
Alyssa's body heated at the simple gesture.
"I'll see you tomorrow." He said and then gently closed the door.
Alyssa just nodded her head and began backing out of the spot. It hit her a minute later. "Tomorrow? What's he mean he'll see me tomorrow?" She stopped and looked back to where he was. He and his Beemer were gone. "How the hell?" Alyssa looked to see if he was in the shadows somewhere, but the lot was empty.
She dreamed the dream again. Each time they became more vivid and clear. They had also become quite erotic over the last couple of nights and each morning she awoke and went straight to take a cold shower. She didn't know how much more of this she could take mentally or physically. It was 9am when she arrived at the bookstore. She'd been at Reader's Delight for 4 years and enjoyed it immensely. It was a book/music store that networked with the café next door. It was around one o'clock when Alyssa's life would change tremendously. She spotted him over in the CD section and went over to offer assistance.
"Is there anything I can help you find today sir?"
He turned slowly holding 2 CDs. "I think I've found exactly what I need."
It was him. The gorgeous creature from last night. He was about six foot four with a lean muscular build. His skin was very pale but had somewhat of a gloss to it. His hair was wavy and reached his collar. The color was pure black and it was beautiful. She locked on those eyes again. It was dark the first time they met, but had they changed colors? Last night they were black, today they were bronze. She was mesmerized. He smiled that slow sexy smile and spoke again since Alyssa seemed tongue-tied.
"Yes, I have found exactly what I need." His voice was even deeper than last night. And much more sexual. Why did Alyssa think he was no longer talking about the CDs he was holding?
It was only minutes, but to Alyssa seemed like forever. She found her voice. "Good." She reached for the CDs and she felt the energy pass between them. It was a bit disturbing, but also stimulating. She looked to him quickly and saw the intensity on his face. "Is-is there anything else I can get you today?" She turned to walk to the front counter.
"Yes, you can do me the honor of joining me at my club this evening."
Alyssa turned to look at him. "I have to teach a dance class tonight?" Why was she explaining this to him?
"That you do, but not all night correct?" She could only nod her head. "Good, then why don't you met me at ETERNITY at 9:00. Should give you enough time to change, yes?" Again she only nodded. He chuckled. "How much do I owe you?"
"Hmm?" Earth to Alyssa!
"The CDs." He looked to them in Alyssa's hands.
"Oh. God." She shook her head and walked behind the counter. She quickly scanned them and gave him the total. As money exchanged hands, the energy passed through them again. She bagged up his CDs and handed it to him. "Thank you Mr..."
"No, Logan's my first name." He took the bag. "Thank you Alyssa. I'll see you tonight."
She could only nod once again.
Logan gave her one last long sultry look, then turned and left. As he opened the door to leave, a small wind blew and Alyssa caught the scent instantly. It was the one from her dreams.
"My-god." She leaned back against the counter behind her to catch her breath.
What the hell was she doing? Meeting a guy at a club whom she'd only met the night before. There was something about him. Something that tugged at her whenever he was around. The attraction was instant and for the most part dangerously lethal. She known this man for less than 48 hours and she wanted him in bed...period. Fact was, she didn't know him at all, but whatever was happening, she didn't want it to stop.
She arrived at ETERNITY just a little after nine. She told the guy at the door who she was and he went off to retrieve Logan. Moments later, he appeared.
"Good evening." He said reaching for her hand.
"Evening." She said quietly taking his hand.
He turned her slowly and was very pleased with what he saw. The black dress did wonders for her figure. It came two inches above the knee and had spaghetti straps. The V cut stopped just to the top of her breasts.
"You look delicious." He kissed her hand. Her body warmed instantly. "Would you like a drink?"
Logan placed his hand at the small of her back and walked her to the bar.
"Pete, the lady would like a drink." Logan looked to her.
"A zinfandel?" She questioned.
Pete nodded and turned to pour her drink.
A few people stopped to say hello to Logan. Seemed he was very well liked and very well respected.
"Anything else?" Pete asked placing the drink in front of Alyssa.
Logan looked to her again.
She shook her head and picked up her drink.
"Come." Logan directed her to the back of the club. He stopped at an entryway that was roped off and spoke to the guard there. "I'm not to be disturbed for any reason." The guard nodded never taking his eyes off the club scene. "Anything happens, handle it." He nodded again. Logan moved the rope aside and let Alyssa step through first. He walked her down a long hallway. At the third door down he stopped to open it and gestured her in first. She was about to sip her wine but stopped the moment she stepped into the room.
The walls were deep red, blood red and the black lights really intensified that. The floors were done in red too and to Alyssa's surprise stimulated her sexually. She wondered had that been his intent when doing the room. There was a large black sectional couch dead center of the room with a coffee table in front of it. In opposite corners of the room were two intriguing statues. One was of a vampire showing his fangs and reaching out for someone or something. It looked a lot like Logan, but Alyssa just thought her mind was getting away from her. The other was of a female with a look of longing and despair on her face. She was reaching out for someone or something too. Alyssa then realized, they were reaching for each other. Did that female have a resemblance to her? No, couldn't be.
"Do you like them?" He gestured her towards the sectional. "I had them done a few months ago and they were just delivered yesterday."
"I do like them, they're exceptional." Alyssa sat and continued looking at them.
He sat next to her on the sectional. "How's your wine?"
"Good." Why was she so damn nervous? "How long have you had this club?"
"A while." He grinned. "So," he moved a stray hair from her cheek. "Aren't you going to ask me the obvious question?"
Alyssa shook her head, she didn't understand.
"Who I am? Or rather why do you feel the way you do every time I'm around?"
"Yes." It was a whisper. She was so relieved to have him mention it first.
"It's my-gift-let's say."
"Mmm-hmm." He nodded his head. "My looks, my voice, my presence, it draws you in no matter how hard you try to avoid it. Look into my eyes." How could she not when he said it like that? Husky and soft. "What color are they?"
"Black. I didn't even know that was an eye color."
"What color were they this morning?"
Alyssa thought about it and her insides churned as the thought hit her. "Bronze, but I assumed you were wearing contacts."
"Is that the truth?" He already knew the answer. She couldn't answer. "Take my hand." He held it out for her to do so. She took it slowly. It was ice cold. It wasn't that way this morning or when she first took it when she arrived. She couldn't let go. "Look at the statues again Alyssa." She couldn't take her eyes off of him though. "Look." He demanded softly. She did so and her heart beat furiously. She looked to the female and then to the vampire. Slowly she looked to Logan.
"No." She was shaking her head slowly.
He cocked his head and waited for her to continue.
"You-you can't be." Alyssa put down her wine. Her other hand was still in Logan's.
"Want more proof?" He asked softly.
She nodded. He released her hand and materialized in the corner of the room. He did it again and ended up in the corner next to his statue. Alyssa was in shock. She couldn't speak, she could barely breath. Finally he picked up the statue with one hand and moved it in front of Alyssa.
"Go ahead." He said acknowledging her curiosity.
She reached out to touch it. It was solid marble. No man was moving that on his own, let alone one handed. He moved it back and materialized in front of her. He took her hands to stand her up.
"Are you scared?"
She nodded her head.
"Good, it'll keep you safe and me cautious." He stroked her cheek.
"Do you..." She couldn't finish.
"Drink blood? Yes." She flinched. "But not human blood. I've learned over time to control my thirst. Hasn't been easy, but you're safe in that aspect." He stroked her cheek again.
"I-I cannot believe this." Alyssa took a deep breath and turned away from him. "I'm standing in a blood red room, with blood red floors with a vampire." She laughed nervously.
He walked up behind her and put his hands on her shoulders. "How does that make you feel?" He leaned in to sniff her hair. His eyes darkened even more. He wanted her...desperately.
"I-I have no idea." She threw her head back and it fell to Logan's chest. He moved his hand around to cup her neck. The scent hit her.
"It was you." She turned quickly. "That scent comes from my dreams." She looked deep into his eyes. "You were in my dreams."
Logan smiled at her realization.
"How did you do that?"
"I only have to be in your presence while you dream and your dreams will be only of me."
"You-you were in my room while I slept?"
"Why me?" Alyssa reached to touch his collar.
He took her hand and kissed it. He then took her to the sectional and explained why exactly it was her. It fascinated her. She was on her second glass of wine.
"So you're telling me that because the first time you saw me dance when I was 22 and every time after, you've wanted me?"
"There's a bit more to it than that, but it can be that simple." Logan was stroking her arm gently with his forefinger. "When you dance, you dance from your soul. You bring something to the stage in my years of being that I have never seen. You tell a story with your body and it arouses me." He placed his hand on her thigh. "I waited so long to approach you because the time just wasn't right. I had to be sure you would be ready when I revealed myself to you and you haven't been till now."
"Amazing." She drank the last of her wine and looked to Logan. She was more relaxed now, more curious.
He cocked his head. "What?"
"I've always wondered."
"About what?" He linked his fingers with hers and studied them. He liked how well they fit.
"Since I was about 21 I guess, I've had this "interest" in vampires."
"Oh really?" He raised a brow. He liked the sound of that.
"Mmm-hmm. I was like well if they do exist how would I react it I met one? What would I do if I were alone with one? How would it feel to be kissed by one?"
He raised a brow again and placed his hand behind her neck and pulled her closer to him. His mouth was just inches from hers as he spoke first.
"I've waited an eternity for this." And he kissed her deeply. Her whole body responded. She wrapped her arms tightly around him and returned the kiss feverishly. Logan adjusted their positions to where she was now beneath him on the sectional.
She'd never been kissed like this before. There was desire, tenderness, fire and possession in this kiss. Logan's hand found her breast and she moaned softly. Her hands gripped the back of his shirt as she buried herself into him. Reluctantly, Logan pulled back.
"What?" She could barely speak.
"Too much, too soon." He kissed her gently. "I have an eternity for you, no rush."
He placed a finger to her lips. "Trust me. Give us time. It's all I have." He helped her sit up. "Is there anything else I can get you?"
"No, I'm fine." She smoothed out her dress. "So, I have to ask?"
"How old are you?" Alyssa kicked off her shoes and curled her feet underneath her.
"I was wondering when that would come." He smiled. "In human terms I appear to be 35."
"Is that when you were changed?"
He nodded his head.
"So how long have you been a vampire?"
"300 years." He said simply.
She gasped. "Really?"
"How did it happen?"
"It's not a pretty story Alyssa. I was a monster once." His voice hardened.
"I want to know Logan." She put her hand on his.
He only sighed and the proceeded to tell her his story. It was two hours later when he finished.
"So here I am today, no longer a carnivore as far as humans is concerned. I've only been like this for a century, but it's worked."
Alyssa was now in his lap. His arms were wrapped gently around her.
"Wait a minute! You were out in the sunlight today."
"So you noticed did you?" He teased. "I have a friend who's been with me a while and for the last 20 years, he's been working on a serum that lets me go out in sunlight for hours at a time. Not a whole day per se, but long enough to stop the "why doesn't Logan ever come out in daylight" questions."
"A friend?" Alyssa looked to him curiously.
"His name is Julian. I'll introduce you to him." He nuzzled her closer.
"What time is it?"
"Nearly midnight." He answered kissing the back of her neck.
"Mmm, I should get home." She craned her arm around his neck.
"You should, but I'm not ready for you to go yet." He moved the kisses to her jaw line.
"Logan." She melted in to him.
"I told you when you first arrived how delicious you looked." He nipped her bottom lip. "I was more than right." He growled playfully and continued working wonders with his mouth.
Alyssa lost all ability to think clearly. Did she really have to go? Now? Tomorrow? Next year? Next century?
Logan growled again as he pulled away. "We better go, before I change my mind and you'll have no choice." He placed his hands on Alyssa's waist to help her stand and then he did the same. "Let me walk you out."
"Okay." She slipped her shoes back on.
Logan took her hand as they walked to the door. She stopped to ask him one more question. "Does your staff know?"
"Each and every one of them." He pulled the door close. "They're all like me."
Alyssa just stared at him. He chuckled deeply and pulled her along.
At her car, they stared at each other for a long moment.
"I cannot believe I'm about to be involved with a vampire." Alyssa placed her hand on his cheek.
"Believe it." He turned his face to kiss her hand and then he leaned down and kissed her hard.
"Mmm, that is an amazing mouth you have sir."
"You haven't seen anything yet my delicious one." He kissed her again.
His delicious one, she liked the sound of that. She unlocked her door and got in. Logan leaned in to her for a final good night.
"We'll see each other tomorrow." He kissed her cheek. "And the next day, and the next day, and the next." He kissed her other cheek. "Drive safely."
"I will." She started her car and pulled away after he closed the door.
Logan watched till she left the parking lot. He walked back inside. He knew the instant she was safe at home.
They'd spent every day together over the next couple of weeks. Alyssa introduced him to the ladies she worked with and the ladies she instructed with. They all swooned over him, but so did any woman still alive and breathing. Her parents had yet to meet him, but they lived in another state so there was no hurry there. Hi mom, hi dad, I'd like you to meet my boyfriend who'll never age. His name is Logan and he's a vampire. Get the smelling salts for mom. It was October and Logan invited Alyssa to the big Halloween celebration at his club. She thought about the name...ETERNITY...it fit. He said his staff loved the day because it was the one night of the year they could truly be themselves.
Alyssa decided since Logan was a vampire, she would dress to be his mate. They hadn't made love yet, but she knew they would. She wore a black criss cross pattern satin body suit that molded to her body. The cut in front left her breasts very exposed. She knew Logan would love it. She had on knee high boots with a 5 inch heel and she was feeling super sexy. She checked herself in the full-length mirror and smiled proudly. Something told her that tonight was going to the night. She arrived at the club at 8pm. Logan sensed the moment she was there. Tony the doorman was helping her off with her coat as Logan walked up behind them.
"Thank you Tony." Logan said.
"No problem." He hung her coat on the rack behind him.
Logan turned Alyssa to look at her. He checked her from head to toe very slowly. His slow sexy smile appeared and Alyssa felt her stomach start to do flip flops. He moved in to her and dipped her backwards. With no regard to the crowd he kissed her at the center of her breasts and ended at her neck. He moved to her ear.
"Tonight you're finally mine." He tongued her ear. "I'm going to peel you out of this suit inch by inch and kiss every glorious and delicious part of your body." He kissed her ear now. "And I won't miss one square inch." He captured her mouth with his.
He had her on the dance floor now and she thought he was an incredible dancer. Any man, any being that moved like that vertically had to be a god horizontally.
"Having a good time?" He asked while they slow danced.
"I'm having an amazing time!" She kissed him softly. "This night can't get any better." Logan looked to her. She was eye to eye with him in her heels.
"Is that a challenge?"
"Do you want it to be?" She ran her finger down the center of his chest.
He growled as his eyes darkened and he led her off the dance floor.
He took her to an elevator and punched the button for the third floor. When the doors closed he pinned her hard to the elevator wall. "Were you teasing me?"
Alyssa was feeling bold, sensual, and erotic. "Yes."
"Teasing a vampire sexually is not a good idea." He caressed her breasts with both hands. Alyssa closed her eyes and moaned. When she could speak, she continued her game. "I'm not afraid of you."
"You should be." He nipped her lip. "Sexually I'm just as dangerous as I could be otherwise." His voice deepened, but there was no threat.
"I don't believe you." She ran her hand over his crotch. He was hard as steel.
With no warning they materialized in his bedroom. He had her on the bed instantly. Alyssa felt light headed, but loved it. Logan pulled off his shirt. Damn he was beyond gorgeous. His pale chest was hairless and hard as steel. He rolled one sleeve slowly off her shoulder and kissed every spot just as he promised. Her eyes rolled back in her head.
"I promise you Alyssa, after we make love, you'll never be the same again." He rolled down the other sleeve and kissed her thoroughly there too. She could only moan.
As Logan undressed her she could hear him growling. It excited her. He removed her boots and did things to her feet that made her eyes cross. He kissed every toe and ran his tongue along the center of her foot to her ankle.
"Oh god." She could barely breath.
Logan only looked at her and continued his wicked magic. Alyssa wore nothing under the body suit. It was all Logan could do to maintain control and not just dive right in to her. He spoke something in another language and then took her breast in his mouth. Alyssa arched against him and fisted her hands in his hair. He parted her legs open and explored her tortuously. Alyssa reached orgasm instantly. His name fell from her lips in a shaky whisper. Logan kissed her torso and worked his way down. He stopped just at her center and looked to her.
"Let's see just how delicious you truly are." He buried himself in her.
She gasped and clutched for the bed sheets. The gasps turned to cries, which turned to screams. Alyssa climaxed beautifully. She'd never felt anything like it before. He still had his pants on and when he stood to remove them, the breath caught in the back of Alyssa's throat. Logan grinned seductively. She'd heard the stories about how well endowed vampires were. Was there some Clydesdale somewhere missing a precious part? Logan slithered up Alyssa as he crawled back into bed. He kissed her sensually as he worked his way up her body.
"You are truly magnificent." He said running his tongue across her breast. Words failed her. "I'll never get enough of you."
"Nor I of you." Alyssa cupped his face. "Kiss me Logan. I love the way it feels when you kiss me."
He looked deep into her eyes and did just that. He traced her lips with his tongue and then parted them. He kissed her senseless. All reason, all thought, all logic left her. He entered her slowly and Alyssa bowed against him. She knew it was more than she could take, but the feeling was glorious. Logan moved slowly inside of her. He murmured something in the same language he did before and laced his fingers with hers. He was right, it wasn't just a cocky promise...she would never be the same again. Logan increased his pace, as did his breathing. He began to growl again and Alyssa reacted to it. She ran her nails down his back and he groaned huskily. He clenched his teeth and took a deep breath.
"A moment." He said unsteadily.
"Are you okay?" She asked now stroking his back gently.
"I have to be careful. I told you that sexually I could be very dangerous."
"And you are." She said coyly now running her fingers through his hair.
His lips curved. "No I don't think you understand. If we continue at the pace we were going, I would undoubtedly make you mine...in every way." He stroked her cheek.
"Oh." Was all she could say. But she wasn't afraid. "Well then," She moved against him. "Let's just slow it down," She kissed him passionately. "For now."
Logan looked deep in he eyes and moved in her again. The pace was erotically slow and sinfully tortuous. They both went up incredibly. Logan muffled her scream with his kiss and her name came from his lips as he emptied into her.
She was even more beautiful curled up next to him in sleep. Never in the centuries that he's existed had he ever made love to a woman with the intensity and passion he had with Alyssa. He knew they would be together, he knew it from the moment he saw her, but what he didn't know was how incredible it would be. She was in to his kind and had little fear of vampires even with the stories she knew and what Logan had told her about him before he "converted".
He was propped up on his elbow starting at her. He ran his finger lazily up and down her arm and then along her shoulder and cheek. Alyssa hummed quietly in sleep and nuzzled closer. Logan leaned over to kiss her softly. Again she hummed and changed positions in her sleep. She moved her hand down to his thigh and threw her leg over his. If he wasn't already aroused enough that would have done it.
Logan kissed her again and let the kiss linger til Alyssa opened her eyes.
"Good morning my delicious one." He looked deep into her eyes and playfully bit her chin careful not to draw blood.
"Morning." She said sleepily unconsciously rubbing his thigh.
"You keep that up and you won't get out of this bed at all any time today." He kissed her jaw line.
Alyssa shivered. Logan's mouth was a gift from god. Man or vampire it didn't matter, it was lethal. She wrapped her arms around him.
"Mmm, I wasn't dreaming."
"Not in the least." Logan shifted his position and moved Alyssa under him.
"No man has ever made me feel or treated me the way you did last night." She toyed with his hair.
"Must I remind you once again, I am not a man." He kissed her again, hot and hard.
"I know." Alyssa replied once she caught her breath. "Every aspect of you puts man to shame."
"Care to explain." He said proudly as he cupped her ass and then began rubbing.
"I don't think I have to."
"I want you to." He ran his tongue along her cheek and then neck.
"You make it difficult when you do things like that to me." She tilted her neck for easier access.
"Try anyway." Logan continued doing wicked things with his tongue.
"Logan," She rolled her eyes from pleasure and pushed herself deeper into him. "I can't think let alone talk when you're doing that to me."
"Tell me why having a vampire for a lover is better than a man or I'll ravish you all over again." Like that was a threat...she thought to herself. His tongue continued to work it's wicked magic. "And you won't see the light of day for a while once I get started again."
"Logan..." Alyssa gasped when his hand went between her legs.
"Tell me." He spaced each word slowly as he continued teasing her with his fingers.
"Sexually---sexually you are above and beyond man." She was struggling for her senses. "I didn't know it was possible for me to handle a man, or actually a being," she corrected, "as, how do I put it?" She looked into his eyes. "As well endowed as you are." She stroked his back.
He chuckled confidently. "Go on." He fingered her breast now as he smiled.
"And the rest of your body," she placed kisses over his chest. "It's magnificent." She purred it.
"Go on," Logan kissed her. "Continue feeding my ego delicious one."
"Like you need it." She said plainly, but continued. "And these eyes," she traced them delicately with her finger. "Normally, they're bronze. And I bet when you're angry or upset they go to red. But when you're hungry for me they darken...drastically. They become black. That's how I first saw them in my dreams about you." She bit his lip. "It is such a turn on." His eyes did just that...darken. "See, there they go."
"Would you like to see how dark I can get between the sheets?" He asked seductively.
"I don't think it's possible for you to do anything more extraordinary to me than you already have." Alyssa straddled him and ran her hands up to his neck.
"You underestimate me again my sweet one," he wrapped his arms around her waist. "Let me show you just how much." He pulled her down to him possessively and took her places she only knew in her dreams.
"How strange it is going out with you to a restaurant." Alyssa stepped out the door he held open. She dropped her voice to a whisper. "I mean you don't eat or drink."
"I can. I just choose not to. The food wouldn't satisfy me like the other does."
Alyssa smiled and linked her arm through his. "So why take me out to eat? There are other things you can do for me."
"I'm not sure your human body could handle it." He kissed her ear.
Alyssa laughed softly. "Oh but I can. And that's not what I meant."
"I know my sweet." He kissed her temple. "I want you to have all the experiences of a "normal" relationship even though you're with me. I enjoy watching you eat almost as much as I enjoy watching you dance."
"Really?" She looked to him in surprise.
"Really." He turned to kiss her. "Wait here, I'll go get the car."
"I don't mind walking with you."
"I do mind, remember the distance away we had to park this evening. Wait for me." He kissed her again and walked off.
Alyssa stood one building down from the restaurant. She had her back to the alley and didn't even see them coming.
"Well hello there baby." One said stepping from behind her.
She didn't speak.
"Look what we have here." Another spoke throwing a beer can behind him into the alley. "You looking for a good time."
Alyssa turned to walk back to the restaurant.
"Now don't leave us sweetie." The first one said stepping in front of her. "Come have a drink with us." He ran a finger down her cheek. She flinched.
The second one stood directly behind her and talked in her ear. "A pretty thing like you shouldn't be out alone."
"I'm not alone." She said shakily.
They both looked around. "Looks that way to me." The second one said moving his knee against her ass.
"Please, leave me alone." She said pushing the first guy away.
He laughed and stepped back towards her. "We can play it rough baby or you can make this easy." He reached into this back jean pocket and took out a switchblade.
Alyssa gasped and shook her head. The second guy grabbed her and pulled her towards the alley.
They took her all the way back to where the alley ended. The second guy threw her against the fence. She began to cry.
"You'll thank us in the end." The first guy said walking towards her loosening his belt. The other guy held her.
Neither of them heard or saw Logan appear.
"My suggestion is for you to let the lady go." His voice was dangerously low and just as Alyssa had said, his eyes were red.
The first guy turned and looked at him. He smirked. "You gonna stop me?"
Logan's lip curled in part snarl, part smile.
"Just hold her Rob, I'll take care of this." He walked towards Logan with the switchblade extended. He stabbed at him, but Logan disappeared and materialized behind him.
"The fuck?" The second guy said in shock as he held Alyssa tighter.
Logan wrapped his arm around the first guy's neck. "I could snap your neck right here, right now and feel no remorse about it." He growled like a predator about to attack. "I could do worse." He showed his fangs. He then snarled and threw the guy like a rag doll into the trashcans. "But I won't."
The guy scurried backwards as Logan came towards him. His fangs were still showing and his eyes were blood red.
"What-what are you?"
"I think that's pretty obvious." Logan snatched him up quickly. He pulled him towards him with his neck just inches from his fangs. "I should end your existence anyway." He went to bite him.
"Logan!" Alyssa called. He looked to her. The fury was still in his eyes. "That's not what you are anymore." Her eyes pleaded with him.
Logan looked back to the first guy and glared at him. He threw him halfway down the alley. He looked to the second guy still holding Alyssa. Only now he was holding her from fear not control. Logan materialized directly in front of them. He looked deep into Alyssa's eyes and placed his hand on her cheek. He then looked to the other guy. His lips curled into the ferocious snarl once again. The guy pushed Alyssa into Logan and ran off.
"Are you alright?" He asked softly.
She wrapped her arms around him. "I am now."
"Did they harm you?" He ran his hands over her body cautiously. "Because if so, I'll find them and end their lives as they know it."
"Logan, no." She shook her head and buried it in his chest. "You're not that killer anymore."
"Alyssa, when it comes to you and your safety, I am that killer. No one harms you." His voice was fierce. "I'll end their existence if they do."
He kissed her temple twice. "Let's go my sweet. I'll take you home and make love to you till the wee hours of the morning." He put his arm around her.
It was now December, Logan and Alyssa had been together for about 2 ½ months. She'd never been so in love and imagining her life without Logan was heartbreaking. Every day that became a reality and she hated thinking about it. He met her after dance class one evening. He was leaning against the car when she came out.
"Ms. Janet." Logan bowed his head to her.
"Logan." She smiled at him and stepped off to her car.
"Hello Beautiful." He said to Alyssa as she stopped in front of him.
"Hello." She said tilting her head back for a kiss. It was long and slow.
"I have surprise for you." He said reaching for her hand.
"Follow me." He took her to the building she saw him come out of the first night. He unlocked the door and gestured her in. He called out. "Julian?"
"In the back." Came the answer.
"I finally get to meet him?" Alyssa was very excited. "I've been anxious since the first day you told me about him."
Logan locked the door and pointed Alyssa to where Julian was. They walked in to a room filled with equipment. There were two computers with printers, four lab tables filled with bottles, liquids, syringes, and such. File cabinets lining the back wall and an examining table. Julian stood wearing a white lab coat, blue jeans, and Doc Martens. He was shirtless and he too was gorgeous. He was about 2 inches shorter than Logan, but stockier. His hair was long and blond and he had it pulled back into a ponytail. He had that pale coloring too, but his eyes were a copper color. And in human terms, he looked younger than Logan.
He looked up from his microscope.
"I want you to meet the woman I will love for an eternity, Alyssa Meade."
"Alyssa." Julian stood and glided over to her. His walk was very much like that. "So nice to finally meet you." He took her hand to kiss it.
"Thank you. And I'm glad to meet you too." She couldn't help but stare at him.
Both he and Logan noticed and smiled to one another.
"25." Julian said.
Alyssa looked to Logan in confusion.
"Julian has the ability to read thoughts." Logan answered raising a brow to him.
Julian chuckled. "Couldn't help myself. I knew the question would come."
Alyssa grinned. "So you are younger than Logan?"
"In a manner of speaking." He walked back over to the lab table and sat on the stool. "I was turned to a vampire when I was 25. After that, we cease to age really. But truth be told, I'm the old "man" here." He moved some vials around. "I've been a vampire for 350 years."
"Oh wow." Alyssa went to stand next to him. "How long have you been "clean"?"
Julian looked to Logan and grinned. "About a century and a half." He looked into the microscope again.
"That's longer than you." She looked at Logan.
"He said it, he's the old "man" here." Logan leaned back against the file cabinet.
Julian did it again. "100 years."
"Julian." Logan admonished.
"Sorry, I can't help it in some cases." He moved a sample from the microscope.
100 years was how long he and Logan had been friends. It was the question Alyssa didn't ask.
She grinned again. "Oh I don't mind Logan. I think it's fascinating to be able to read someone's thoughts." She leaned in closer to Julian. "If I weren't so in love with you."
Julian looked to Alyssa and then Logan. He smiled cockily.
"Oh really?" Logan walked over to her slowly. "Am I gonna have to rip him apart and burn him to keep him away from you?" He pulled Alyssa roughly to him.
She smiled coyly. "You can try."
Julian laughed. "Ooo, I like her Logan. Want to share?"
He growled. Julian laughed again. Logan leaned down to kiss Alyssa aggressively. Her body as usual became jello.
"Still interested in Julian?"
Alyssa wiped her lips. "I don't know, he hasn't kissed me yet." She teased.
Logan's eyes darkened. It was passion, not anger. He knew Julian would never encroach on what was his. "Excuse us a moment Julian."
"Sure thing." He grinned and went back to work.
Logan materialized them in another room. He pinned Alyssa to the wall grabbing her neck with his hand. Those eyes were dark and he was incredibly sexy this way. For the most part he was an aggressive lover and Alyssa loved every moment of it. He put his other hand between her legs and caressed her sinfully. Her breath caught in her throat. He then started kissing her passionately, first on the lips and then to her neck. She shuddered in ecstasy. Several minutes later, he pulled away.
"Now, whom do you belong to?" He kissed her softly.
"You." It was a whisper.
"And who is the only one you will always belong to?"
"You." She swallowed hard.
Logan kissed her nose. "Good. Let's go break the news to Julian." He teased and they materialized back in the room.
Julian was at the computer now. "Everything cool?" He already knew it was.
"Everything's just fine." Logan put his arm around Alyssa.
"I'm afraid Julian, you and I will have to delay that kiss till another time." Alyssa was having fun. "Logan is extremely jealous."
He looked to Alyssa and raised a brow. "You're having fun at my expense aren't you?"
"I am." She stroked his cheek. "You know there will never be anyone but you." She leaned up to kiss him. "I love you."
"And I love you." He returned the kiss. "So what are you working on Julian?"
"All kinds of goodies." He raised both brows a couple of times.
"I've made your day serum better. You've got another hour of use." Julian hit the print button on the computer. "I am now working on a serum to replace you drinking animal blood."
"Really?" Logan was very curious.
"I've had it in the works for about 10 years, but I'm moving it to the front burner since the day serum is good." He pulled the paper from the printer and wrote some notes on it.
"So you're kind of a scientist?" Alyssa asked looking at the things on the table.
"Not kind of, I am." Julian smiled. "That's what I was before my accident." He chuckled. "Ironically, I was working on a cure for pneumonia and smallpox."
Alyssa just looked to him.
"I was born in New York May of 1634. Those diseases were quite common then. People were actually dying of the common cold. Unfortunately, I contracted a disease of my own before finishing my research." He filed some things away in the file cabinet.
"Oh Julian, I'm sorry."
"Don't be." He smiled at her. "Since I've met Logan, I'm back at what I do best."
"So tell me more about this new serum Julian." Logan walked up behind Alyssa and put his hands on her shoulders.
Over the next hour, Julian did just that.
It was a few weeks later and Logan and Alyssa were lying in bed together. They had just made love and Alyssa was quieter than normal.
"What's the matter my love?" He kissed the top of her head.
"Nothing, I'm fine." She nuzzled closer to him.
"Alyssa, you forget that I also have the ability to sense people's emotions. You can't lie to me." He kissed her gently again. "Tell me what's wrong."
"I love you." She started.
"And I you."
"Each day I think about spending an eternity with you. And each day I know there's only one way it can happen."
"Alyssa, you don't know what you're asking."
She sat up to look at him. "I know exactly what I'm asking." She stroked his chest. "I love you Logan. I'll never love a man the way I do you. Each day I age and get older. I'll be old and gray and you'll still be as magnificent as you are now." Logan chuckled softly. "Then one day I'll die and you'll move on to another."
"I'll never have another after you." He cupped her face in his hand.
"Logan, I want to be like you. I want to spend an eternity with you." Tears fell from her eyes. "I don't want to be without you...ever!"
"Oh my sweet." He rubbed away her tears. "Do you understand what it is you're asking? What it is you'll become?"
"Yes." She began to cry.
"You'll eventually, we'll eventually, have to leave the area because after awhile, your friends will notice you're not aging." He moved her hair off of her shoulders. "You'll have to die to your parents because you'll never age. You'll outlive everyone you love."
"I won't outlive you."
Logan looked deep into her eyes. "This is really what you want?"
"Yes." She put her hands to his chest.
"It's going to be painful my love. It'll be like no pain you've ever experienced before. And the thirst will be like a hunger you've never had. I'll work with you to control it, but it won't be easy. I won't let you become the monster I was."
"Just make me like you Logan...please."
"Do you want a few days to be sure?"
He moved his hand behind her neck. "This is something you truly want?"
Alyssa nodded her head.
Logan tilted her head backwards. "Be sure my love. Once I taste your blood, there's no turning back." Logan moved her hair off her neck.
"I'm sure." She said nervously. "Please."
Logan buried his fangs into her neck. His eyes went to red. They always did when he tasted human blood. Alyssa began to shudder violently. After a couple of minutes, Logan pulled back from her. He held her as she shook and gasped. He wiped some blood from the corner of his mouth, and then held Alyssa tightly. She began to moan.
"Hang in there love. The pain will end soon." He kissed her forehead. His eyes lightened.
Several minutes later, Alyssa's body relaxed. Her eyes were closed and she was breathing peacefully.
Logan leaned down to kiss her. Her lips were cold and her skin had paled. He placed his hand to her heart...it no longer beat. Because it was what Alyssa wanted, Logan had no regret. A selfish part of him was happy to have her with him for an eternity.
A few minutes later she opened her eyes. She looked dazed, but satisfied. She looked at Logan. "Am I..." She tried to sit up. Logan helped her. "Am I like you?"
"You are." He kissed her on the lips. "How do you feel?"
"Thirsty." She ran her fingers through her hair.
"We'll work on that."
"No." She straddled him. "I'm thirsty for you. I'm hungry for you." She growled and pushed him back. She ran her nails down his chest. "I want you in the worst way." Her voice was husky and demanding.
"Then have me." He caressed her breasts.
"I will...for an eternity." She leaned down to kiss him passionately. "I'm forever your Logan...forever yours."
And they made love into the dawn. Logan would make sure Julian worked with Alyssa to get the serums to where they worked with her body chemistry. He hadn't tasted human blood in 100 years, but Alyssa's was sensually delicious. It would be the last time he tasted hers or anyone else's. He had his mate...forever.
They were lying arm in arm and Logan looked to Alyssa and repeated her words.
"I'm forever yours Alyssa."
She smiled and nuzzled deeper in to him. She literally had the one she loved...forever.
