Notes:
I know, i'm so evil. I left everyone on a total cliffie at the end of the last story. But, i think i'm entitled considering that only two people reviewed. they reviewed more then once but still, two people! That really is pathetic! I need more reviews to fuel my creativity. If i don't on this story i will stop on a cliffie and not update any more.


20. Rafe's sleepless night

I couldn’t sleep. The smell of vampire was too strong for my nostrils, especially this close to the full moon. I was inside the house when I was used to sleeping under the stars. I needed the breeze and the feel of the grass beneath my back. I walked out of the house. Holly was asleep under a tree with the crossbreed and the human child. They were all asleep. She looked so peaceful. It reminded me of the day I first met her.

I had just arrived in a small village in Yorkshire, bordering a moor. The folks weren’t superstitious and I managed to find a place to stay easily. I was walking through the village, going to buy some breakfast, when I first saw her. She had shining chestnut brown hair that hung down her back in a fat plait. Her eyes sparkled a mysterious hazel colour. She was dressed in a light cotton dress and she was holding onto a little girl with mouse brown hair. I had a guess an estimated that she was fifteen and the youngster was about seven. She was without doubt, the most beautiful person I’d ever seen. I wanted her by my side, no more then that, I needed her. I wanted her to be with me forever. There was only one way for that. I wanted this angel to be here forever

She tossed in her sleep and her left arm was revealed. I looked at the scarred flesh. Three long claw marks and a ring of teeth. My teeth. I sighed. She resented me for what I did to her and I understood. I hated anything that caused her upset. I had hated myself for so long.

The full moon. I headed out to the moors, before the moon rose. I lay on the grass and waited. The pain of the transformation was not something you got used to. Each time it ripped for you and you cried out in anger and frustration you wonder. Why? Why did it happen to me? I tried to push myself through the pain and eventually I emerged the other side, wolf and strong. I hunted a few sheep and deer, until I caught a new scent. A human. I wasn’t like the inexperienced newbittens on their first hunt. I didn’t attack with plain aggression. I set traps for my prey. I dropped my half-killed sheep and crouched in the long grass, waiting. The girl approached the sheep. A twig cracked beneath my feet and she turned, fearfully. I struck. I was on top of her, claws raking the skin on her left arm. Then you realize who it is. Your angel. You struggled to rein in the animal but before you can, the wolfen jaws seize her wrist and cut through the flesh. You pull back and escape, hoping that it didn’t happen, the infection didn’t spread.

I sigh. I was so glad I managed to rein in my control that night. One second too late, it seems. I hadn’t seen her after that until after her first transformation, full of rage. Then she left until I saw her in nineteen twenty five. Then she had met the rest of my group and left as soon as her job was over. Always the professional. I had to prove how I felt for her, that I didn’t bite her just for fun.
