She came around the side of the summer house to find him waiting! The relief she felt was impossible to measure. He was concerned, did anyone see her leave, was she followed. She soothed his hair and told him all was safe as ever she had been careful.
It was getting harder for them to meet the war was encroaching on their lives and everyone was feeling threatened and so no one was safe from prying eyes. Their eyes met in the darkling of the late evening they leaned into each other to kiss. The electricity between them was visible. Running his hands down her back he felt something hot and wet…… Blood , he withdrew from their embrace and asked her with concern how had she been wounded!
Hunters she said as she crossed the mountain range yesterday evening they had almost caught her. Fear and anger flashed in her eyes, she was so brave he loved her more each time they met.
Do you think , she asked him would their two peoples ever come to a real peace. He looked her in the eye and said he had no answer. Time pasted and they made love long and blissfully.
They were readying to leave and go their separate ways when they heard a noise behind them in a flash she turned and saw torches approaching . He put his finger on her lips. My people he said, go ,go now he whispered.
She turned and ran into the night his gazed after her , as she disappeared at speed across the valley. Not a second too soon as three Vampires landed next to him!
There has been a sighting of a ware wolf bitch on the mountain road they told him. Had he seen or heard anything they asked. Looking them straight in the eyes he replied yes he had flown over a group of human hunter’s with a bitch carcass on their sledge.
Fingers tightly crossed under his coat he bared his fangs at the lead male. One less for us to worry about he said . To his relief they all laughed as they took off north into the now night sky.
10 miles away to the south she stopped to lick her wounds, slowing her breath to almost nothing she felt for the tiny life inside her , it fluttered it breathed…. to the gods of the the 5 races what would this she was carrying be . It would be loved!
