This part of Sue Vincent of Daily Echo #writephoto prompt. It is part three of my story which started here with the Tryst here with the Tryst and continued here with the Bridge
As she rounded the corner and left the river bank she could see the young human , heavily pregnant pinned down by a female Vampire! Anger made he howl loudly, damn she though so much for surprise!
Luckily the Vampire was taken by surprise and let go of the girl, who fell heavily to the ground and cried out. Swiftly covering the ground and leaping at the Vampire, one she had never seen before , definitely not from Mathew’s circle. The Vampire opened her mouth to scream but had the wind knocked out of her as the Warewolf hit her heavily and squarely in the chest.
The Vampire dug her long red nails into the Warewolf’s neck and lent forward to suck her blood. The Warewolf let the Vampire become intoxicated on a some of her blood and as she watched saw her eyes roll…immediately she went for her pale white throat biting deep and hard.
Show no mercy she told herself they would show you none.Fighting for her life, fighting for the baby she carried inside her she ripped the heart out of the Vampire, the taste of dead flesh sickened her more than normal. As soon a s felt the the body of the Vampire disintegrate beneath her paws she slowly relaxed.
Feeling tired , so tired she could not help herself from morphing into human shape. Her opponent dead she lay on the blood caked grass exhausted.
The young woman crawled across to her and covered her with her shawl. Two hours passed and the Warewolf slept. The young woman sat and watched her.
As she woke the Warewolf came face to face with the young human. The girl smiled and said “you look as far along as I am ” sitting up the Warewolf snarled at the woman and then nodded “yes” she replied I am almost ready to drop my cub. The young woman said she was almost due too.
The human said they should not stay too long here as it was getting dark and late. She said her name was Lisa and she was so grateful to the Warewolf for saving her.
Lisa looked into the Warewolfs’ eyes and asked her her name. After a long silence the injured Warewolf replied her name was Rachel. Lisa asked Rachel were was she staying that night , “under the bridge ” Rachel said. Lisa said she would not hear of it and that Rachel must come back with her to her house. Rachel tried to argue but Lisa was more than a match for her! Come on she said getting up. Then stopping dead she turned and said you cannot travel like that , trying not to look at Rachel’s nakedness.
“You are right” Rachel agreed “this form will not bare me, the cub is heavy and my injuries are painful.” Looking at Lisa she said ” I swear I shall not hurt you I am going to change. ” With that she changed into a huge wolf. Lisa looked at her with admiration and whispered ” You are the most beautiful wolf I have ever seen!”
The pregnant human and the pregnant wolf walked together towards the setting sun and Lisa’s house. The light had almost gone by the time they reached Lisa’s dwelling. Rachel stopped by the spring in Lisa’s garden and lapped greedily of the water. I shall make you some tea to drink Lisa said , Rachel turned her beautiful eyes towards Lisa and Lisa knew instinctively what Rachel was thinking.
“Okay , Rachel I understand , you stay wolf “Lisa could not help but stroke Rachel’s sleek coat. ” I do live alone but you you do look more comfortable like that. ” OH! cried Lisa ” you are bleeding let me bathe your wound , my spring has healing powers, yes it does ” Lisa assured Rachel who was now looking at her a thousand questions in her eyes. ” How do I know, well they call me the witch” Rachel shifted on her paws , Lisa stroked her again, “please don’t mistrust me I am a white witch.”
Rachel and Lisa looked at each other and each knew they could trust each other.
