From Protector of the Grey House:
Natalia, tired of waiting for the vampire to turn to dust, stepped forward swiftly, swung her weapon around and brought the flat bottom down hard. The unyielding metal slammed into the vampire’s head, crushing bone and brain. It was finally enough. Alexandra tried once more to heal the damage and failed, turning to dust with one final wordless sound. Natalia looked up and caught Vincent’s eye, then glanced around the room. She stood tall and left the extinguisher on the ground.
“Anyone else?” Her voice was louder than it needed to be, emphasizing her agitation. There was a sound of someone stepping forward from behind her. Natalia turned as Lorraine spoke.
Vincent and his people stared at her. Vincent stepped to Natalia’s side. He sounded annoyed. “You wish to challenge my right to be Captain?”
“No. I wish to challenge her.” Lorraine caught Natalia’s gaze and held it.
