Yes, I do, sprang to my mind. Her eyes scanned our path ahead, ears pricked for the sound of prey. My eyes bore into the back of her skull.

With a fatigued acknowledgement of the lightening sky she cooed, so pleased with herself, “Come. Your hunger will wait. Besides, better to have you really gagging for it the first time.” Her icy voice tinkled with laughter, a haughty cheerless strain.

“Where we’re going…” began a half-thought out question.

“It’s safe, and dark. The sun won’t find you there.” Her tone mocked. Her body undulated with each step, a symphony of anatomy.

I shook off the fresh round of novel impulses, “And there are…others? Like you?”

“Like us, my dear,” she teased, casting back a wayward glance and a quick wink.

Though I didn’t really feel the cold I shivered, “They, um, about me, that is…”

“You, whether you’re thrilled about it yet or not, are one of us. They won’t hurt you.”

No. No, they won’t, I thought, mind racing and stilled heart straining to beat.

    she is quite the seductress. You’ve moved us toward a lair, nice.

    You’re still giving us a lot to play with here — the comment about not hurting one of us makes me want to either prove or wrong or have the reasoning be something out of a horror novel.

    Can’t wait to see where someone else takes it. I definitely have something in mind, but I’m not wedded to it.

    “A haughty, cheerless strain.”

    Fantastic stuff.

    I love how alive and vivid the vampire woman is. I suppose we’re going to have to give her a name sooner or later.

    We should probably name both of them one of these days, now that you mention it.

    Musical terminology is such a unique form of portrayal.

    The question is, who has the guts to name these characters after such a long run?

    Actually, I don’t know how many of you have seen or heard about it, but this whole series follows a lot of major plot points from the Aussie Vampire film “Daybreakers.” Damned good film if I do say so, and I am definitely drawing some parallels.

    I’m just glad we’re not talking Twilight :D
