“Victor…” Octavia murmured, stunned. Her mind could not comprehend what had just occurred. Her heart that once filled with so much warmth had easily blackened, once she’d given into the wretched curse deep within her soul. “How?” she questioned for lack of clear understanding. Her moistened eyes diverted back to the earth in wonder of how she could perform such an atrocity. Victor pulled her close for there were no words of consolation to give meaning, only their togetherness to suffice.
Wildlife seemed to hush in fear that it too would be harmed by the beings standing in the midst of the slaughter. The wind dare not drift too closely by the last two survivors so it rode out the silence. The leaves did not rattle nor did the debris dare cross their path. It was as if nature knew not to test fate, as if nature’s mother was robbed of its sole purpose and respected the wickedness that replaced her on this night. Only when two of the most stunning creatures this world has ever beheld rushed away, then and only then, did life breathe again as it should.
Through the mountain, by way of a desolate road, Victor and Octavia absconded though the scent of demise refused to leave them be. Octavia trembled at the sight of flesh and blood still clinging to their skin and clothes like a ruthless punishment. She gripped her white dress, now stained rosy red. She wiped the tears away with her fingers but that too came away painted. Octavia had no memory of even performing the heinous acts but even if she wanted to deny her actions, the evidence hugged, not allowing her to live in that world called denial."
Read Book 1
Octavia, a human, appeared into this world with a mysterious past unknown to even her. Victor a cultured man of influential prestige was born a savage vampire. They should have never been but their attraction was so profound neither could deny their love.
“Tell me to stop and I will.” He came to stand in front of her after hearing no more words of resistance cross her lips.
In a split second, he wished he could sire her and take her for his own. He wanted to tell her everything. This world, his world, about vampires, but he could not.
Victor gripped her face within his palms. “I cannot let you go. I will not,” he exhaled, caressing her lips. “But if you want me to, I will leave you be. Forever…”
“This is madness…” Octavia gazed up at him speechless. She tried to resist him, but the words of refute would not flow.
“And I cannot breathe when you are not near. I cannot think when you are not by my side. The last few days have been murderous knowing that I could not have you” He kissed her, not allowing her to refuse him.
He would never let her go.
