Daily Prompt: Chew

From Inside the Grey House:

“Have you ever thought about what you would do if something were to happen to Vincent before he changed you?”

Natalia swallowed her bite of sandwich. It went down hard, as it was only half chewed. She put the sandwich down, took a swallow of orange juice and placed the glass down on the tray. She stared at Mierka. “No, I haven’t.”

Mierka unfolded her arms and languidly walked toward Natalia. She stood in front of her and leaned toward the human’s right ear. She placed her hands on Natalia’s shoulders to steady herself. She felt Natalia tense as she touched her.

“Remember this name: Jacqueline de la Fontaine. It was my first name.” She pulled back slightly, kissed both of Natalia’s cheeks, then pulled back to stand in front of her. “If anything happens to Vincent while you’re human, come to me and ask my protection using that name. You will always have a place with us, Natalia.”
