“Remind me again why I have to be the bait?”
Dante heard Jonah’s voice in his ear as he hid behind the dumpster. Lowering his voice, he
replied, “Because I was bait last time.”
“Right. You’ll tell Ariel I love her if I don’t make it?”
“You’ll be just fine, Jonah. I’ve got you covered and Basil is lurking about, ready to jump in and
snatch the bastards. Just stay calm.”
“Yeah, easy for you to say. Oh shit! Bloodsucker, eight o’clock.”
Dante swiveled in his spot behind the garbage bin, looking in the direction Jonah instructed. He
saw the chubby guy heading Jonah’s way and prepared himself for the attack. The vampire’s
ugly yellow eyes caught sight of Jonah and Dante could imagine what was going through his
Fresh meat.
Not this time.
“Get ready.”
“I’m ready.” Pulling the tranquilizer gun from his belt, Dante aimed it at the vampire and waited.
Because Jonah had the microphone pinned beneath his jacket, Dante could hear everything,
including the vampire’s comments.
“Well, looky here. What have we got? Oh, and I smell lots of fear. Gonna be a nice snack for
“You don’t want to drink me. I’m anemic. I won’t satisfy you much,” Jonah added with a great
deal of quiver in his voice.
“Oh, I’m betting you’ll be just what I need.”
He heard the growl, heard Jonah scream, and took his shot. The dart hit the vamp right in his
backside and as
Dante stood up, he saw the vamp pull back in shock. He didn’t waste any time and took another
shot. This time he hit the vampire in the arm. The vamp looked up, searching for where the shot
had come from as Dante raced towards him.
“Took your time. He was about to bite me.” Jonah took a couple steps away from the vamp.
“I had to make sure I got a good shot.” The vampire hissed as he approached, then his knees
gave out and he went down. “Damn, I was hoping to knock him around a bit first.”
“You’ll get your chance later.”
“Jesus Christ, Basil! I hate when you do that.” His heart pounding, Dante aimed a steely glare at
Basil. The guy loved to make an entrance, but did he have to appear out of nowhere without
warning and scare the living shit out of him?
“Good shot,” Basil stated as he lowered down to the vampires body. “But next time, aim higher.
If you can get the neck or near the heart, he’ll go down with one shot.”
“Yeah, thanks for the advice.” He’d only known Basil a few short days and was still on the fence
about him. The guy was the last of the true vampires and had several advantages over the rest
of the vamps. For one, he could materialize at the blink of an eye and transport himself
anywhere. Two, he could transform into any creature and blend in everywhere. And anyone that
didn’t know him personally would think he was your typical average human being. Until he bore

his fangs and his icy blue eyes began to glow. Only the truest vampires had the icy blue eyes,
all the others were yellow.
A sign of their impurity.
“He one of Chaos’ men?” Dante asked, looking down at the unconscious vampire.
“Won’t know until he wakes up and talks. Let’s call it a night for now and get some rest.” Basil
hoisted the vamp over his shoulder. “You can ride with me, Jonah, and make sure this guy
doesn’t wake up before we get to the castle.”
“Gee, thanks, boss.”
“You can follow us in your car, Dante.”
While the sun was nonexistent they had all agreed to stay at Basil’s castle. It was a smart idea,
keeping them all under one roof, but Dante was feeling the crunch of hanging around the same
people day and night. He needed a bit of a break now and then, and though Basil’s place was
huge, he still managed to run into someone often enough. He was used to living on his own,
having no one around but himself.
He missed his privacy.
But he climbed into his car, ready to follow them anyway. Glancing in his rear view mirror, he
watched them pull away and saw what looked like a woman, running towards him. He turned
around to get a better look, then hustled out of the car. It had been a woman running towards
him, clad in only a bra and panties.
And two burly men were right behind her.
“You’ve got to help me. Please, help me,” she screamed as she ran.
Running towards her he pulled out his revolver. “Get behind me,” he ordered to her and took
aim. It utterly shocked him when the two men halted then spun around and took off in the
opposite direction. “Fuck!” He turned to the woman who was shivering in the cold air. “Get in the
car and lock the doors. I’m going after them.”
“No, no, please, don’t leave me.”
She grabbed hold of his arm and pressed her body so tightly to his he could feel the curve of
her breasts through the thickness of the suede jacket he wore. “I have to go after them.”
“No, please, just let them go. I don’t want to be alone.”
She clung to him even tighter.
What was he going to do, shake her off of him and drag her to his car? Not likely. So the only
chance he had was to stick by her. “Okay. I won’t go after them. You can give a description of
them to the cops—”
“NO! No police. Please, don’t take me to the cops.”
He didn’t know what her deal was but she sure was adamant about not involving the cops. And
that worried him some. “You have to tell them you were attacked.”
“I don’t want to follow up on this. Please, don’t make me. I don’t trust the cops,” she sighed, still
clinging to him.
He could feel her body tremble and he wasn’t sure if it was entirely from the chill in the air, or
from fear. “Okay, I won’t take you to the cops. You’re cold. Let me give you my jacket.” When
she didn’t release him, he patted her arms. “I need you to let me go so I can take off my jacket.”
“Oh, okay.” She released him and wrapped her arms around her chest.
He striped from his jacket then held it out to her. “Here, put this on before you catch a cold.”
She took the jacket and hurriedly slipped into it.
“No problem. So why don’t you tell me where you live and I’ll give you a ride home.”
“I don’t have a home.” Dante’s brow lifted and she continued. “I was evicted a few days ago.”
He heard glass breaking in the distance and assumed someone was breaking into yet another
building. “This isn’t the safest place to be right now. Why don’t I take you to my place and we
can figure out what we’re going to do next.”
He held his hand out to his car then walked with her to it, holding the passenger side door for
her. After she’d settled in, he hurried to his side and climbed behind the wheel. He got them
rolling and was damn glad they were only three blocks from his office/apartment.
“My name is Dante, Dante Vega.”
“Gypsy Dawn.”
