An excerpt from Blood Moon

 

PROLOGUE

How he loved this part.

Nicholas Malloy had been a vampire for over two centuries and this still never got old for him, especially when he was joined by Winn and Lynette.  When you had all of eternity, it wasn’t often that you stayed with traveling companions for so long, but the three of them had just clicked. For over sixty years, they fed together and spent time with one another.  The other two vampires were younger than he, neither having broken their first century yet.

“Look at her go!” Winn laughed. “I can hear her heart hammering in her chest!”

“Just make sure you save some of the little mouse for me.” Lynette said, closing in on their prey from the left.

They had done this so many times each of them had their movements down pat. Once they tired of chasing the girl, Winn would close in from the right, she would go after her from the left, and Nicholas would shut down the middle.

Nicholas couldn’t help but smile.  They had found this morsel in a bar, some shit hole called the Blue Flame.  She couldn’t be more than twenty five. Her blonde hair was streaming behind her, and Nicholas liked the shape of her ass in those tight jeans she was wearing.  They had herded her out to this open field by fucking with her head, making little noises, moving so fast that she would catch them in the corner of her eye.  It wasn’t hard to do when one had been doing it for as long as Nicholas had.

Winn grinned now, as the girl tried to lose them in the forest.  Fool.  They could see perfectly in the darkness, and their prey was still lit up like a beacon for them.  But he was growing weary of the chase and wanted to taste this sweet temptation.  His grin soon threatened to split his face as he saw the girl trip over an exposed root and go down.  That was just like in the movies!

Lynette shook her head.  “Really?  How cliché.  Let’s finish this.  I’m hungry, and this toy doesn’t hold much of a challenge.”

Their dinner was no longer running. She was on her ass clutching her ankle.  She probably broke it.  Boring.

As the trio of vampires closed in on the girl, Nicholas looked up briefly seeing the crescent moon playing hide and seek with the top of the trees.  The denseness of these woods provided good cover for them and would allow them to feed in peace, without disturbance.  He agreed with Lynette.  It was time to end this particular game.

“If you don’t struggle, we’ll make this quick,” Nicholas said.

“No, go ahead and struggle,” Lynette said with a laugh.  “I like it when they struggle.  You boys know that.”  There was a seductive purr to her voice now.

The girl looked up at the vampires and actually smiled.

“I’ll keep that in mind…”
