I knew he had been to see her, her vampire, I could tell by her troubled sleep. Something she hadn't done since she had been constantly in my bed. Fuck him. Why couldn't they leave her alone, she was safe here with me and no threat. Why couldn't they let her move on. I crawled in beside her, wrapping my arms around her, hoping that she would feel me and that it would settle her dreams. I wondered also at Kezi's fears of Jake and Tine, they had made no move towards Gem, in fact their absence had me worried for other reasons, but Jake can take care of himself, my focus now soley on Gem.
She gave so little away after her encounters with the vampires, but I could see her troubled eyes and her vulnerability was heartbreaking and subconsciously I pull her closer to me, wishing that I could break through her outta shell, wishing she would let herself depend on me. Never before have I had the need to protect someone, but never before have I seen a soul lost such as hers who is trying to be strong.
I kiss her forehead and she shifts slightly in my arms and I wonder as we lay there, if she will succumb to my wolfish charms and stay, but I have this feeling.............
