Daily Prompt: kissed

The first word the random generator… generated was “Europe”. Heck, I barely say what area the book takes place in, let alone other areas in the world. Therefore decided to pick something kind of randomly.

From Protector of the Grey House:

“I have a feeling she’s hurt…”

“It probably means she is.” Her voice was soft but panicked.

The vampire stood. “Get dressed. We leave soon, and you’ll be needed.”

Vincent shouted for Joseph as he left the room. Diana kissed her woman goodbye and readied herself for the early departure. Joseph, who once again anticipated Vincent’s mind, was on Lorraine’s phone. He informed their pilot of the early departure. Lorraine stood by him, dressed in a light summer dress, and spoke with Rowland and Maxine. Anthony had already gathered the others from House LeGris.

They were out the door, headed to Lorraine’s airstrip in less than half an hour. They were in the air fifteen minutes after that. Joseph made sure Diana sat in the cockpit with the pilots to make sure she was out of the way. Vincent paced the length of the airplane, which made the others nervous. Lorraine, who had come along for support, tried several times to calm him down, but nothing worked. Rowland and Maxine also came along just in case reinforcements were necessary. Two hours into the flight, Joseph grabbed Vincent by the arm and forced him into the separate bedroom at the end of the plane.

Daily Prompt: dissolve

From Protector of the Grey House:

“I didn’t feel like being smug about this. None of this makes me feel good.”

Vincent repositioned her and brought his lips to hers. He gave her a long, deep kiss, and continued the embrace until all the hesitation was gone from her touch. Certain of the look he would see on his lover’s face, Vincent pulled away gently from the kiss and gazed into Natalia’s eyes. “Then come back to me Natalia and let this all dissolve. Tell me what you know about Donald, and we will take care of the situation. You will no longer have to worry about revenge, only of life and blood.”

Natalia’s sigh turned into a slight sob. It would be so easy to lay her troubles at Vincent’s feet. Someone else could go after Donald while Vincent sucked the blood out of her willing body. Vincent, sensing her thoughts, lowered his lips to her neck and growled against her skin. He knew she wouldn’t allow him to change her this day, but she seemed to consider it more and more. Soon, she would say yes, and he would have what he wanted.

Daily Prompt: possible

From Protector of the Grey House:

He took the stairs at a leisurely pace, but his mind thought of the possible confrontation in the bedroom. If Vincent were awake, he might have to explain things. He pulled out his phone to text Mierka, but knew there was a chance she would not respond. In the sitting room, he paused for a moment to allow her to respond. When none came, he continued on his way, his phone in hand. It did not go off, but by the time he reached the tower bedroom, he knew what to say if the master were awake.

Joseph opened the door and looked surprised to see his woman sitting with her back against the headboard and Vincent stiff on the bed, the stake still in his heart.

“I thought you would have woken him by now.”

“I woke him. He was beside himself with anger. I offered my blood, but he wanted my head.”

“And staking him again will assuage that anger?”

Daily Prompt: calm

From Protector of the Grey House:

Vincent took a breath and sighed. “I’ve had blood. I want my woman. After that, I will examine what I need to do. For now, I want her.”

“How badly?” Joseph’s voice was soft to help Vincent calm down and hopefully think of the situation.

He sighed again. “I have been on edge. She was missing and now she is back. There is nothing more that needs to be said.”

“Sir…”

Vincent bared his teeth, but the other two were spared any more talk as Joseph’s phone went off. It was the ringtone for the security room. Instead of answering, the three went to the room. Rebecca turned to the three as they entered.

“She’s headed to the room again.”

Daily Prompt: didn’t look up a word

Last night, I wrote A LOT in my work in progress. So far this year, I’ve written 6 chapters. At round 2000 words each chapter, usually more, that’s about 12000 words. I wrote a sentence last night that I whole heartedly believe in. Therefore, rather that look up a word and find a passage, I’m just sharing the passage. See if you can figure out what sentence I like the most.

From (working title) Mayoria:

He gave his mother a wide-eyed stare. “Why did that happen to you?”

She did not break his gaze. “For the same reason Amanda became addicted to your blood: because sex with your father was better after I had his blood.”

It was almost impossible for vampires to blush, but Robert felt as if his face were growing warm and red. “Oh.”

“This is actually quite common with a full-blooded vampire and a non-full blood vampire. No one really talks about it as it is usually to help with sex. Parents don’t want to talk about it to their children, though we should.”

Robert looked away and allowed his thoughts to run away from him. He wasn’t too keen on knowing about his parents exploits, but he had to admit, if he had known what could happen, he would not have done what he did. Still, “It would have been better to understand this could happen, but ignorance does not free me of consequences.”

“Then why did you run away to work?”

He ducked his head and shook it. “I was not prepared to face her. What if she hates me for my actions?”

“Then she hates you. But Marla and Mindy did not need to be left alone in these circumstances.”

He looked up sharply at his mother. “Why does Marla know?”

Isabella gave him a quizzical look. “You didn’t tell her?”

“I told Mindy and only because she figured out something was wrong.”

She stared at her son dispassionately. “Oh? I would say you made a series of mistakes with this, Robert. You better hope those women forgive you for being such a dolt.”

Daily Prompt: burned

From Protector of the Grey House:

“I’m angry and riled up. I want release.” The fires of her furious passion burned beneath the surface of her calm exterior. Heat radiated from her skin and the scent of her blood invaded Vincent’s nostrils. He ground his teeth, closed his eyes, and dipped his head down to her neck. He growled softly near her jugular. His hunger grew as she whimpered and dug her fingernails into his arms.

“Go upstairs. I’ll be up shortly, and you can release your anger on me.” He still spoke quietly, and tried to control his own cravings.

Daily Prompt: reach

From Protector of the Grey House:

The bed shifted slightly, and Lorraine came into his view. “Good evening. Feeling better?”

He gave a pleased growl and reached up to take her in his arms.

“Really?” She pulled away. “You call, demand my assistance, take advantage of me in more ways than one and offer no explanation?”

His arms fell to his side. “Haven’t I?”

“No, you haven’t. Once you were on your way, I received a call from Joseph. He said you needed release. Care to inform me as to what happened?”

He growled low, but decided to sum up the issues with one sentence. “Sometimes a human lover is not enough.”

She hid her smile badly. “Really? Could have fooled me.”

Daily Prompt: useful

I should have cover artwork update by the end of the month. Fingers crossed!

From Protector of the Grey House:

Joseph stood over the weeping child, as hatred grew inside him. He had learned something useful about vampire blood tonight, but at what cost? What would it take to separate Natalia from Vincent’s hold? He could try his own blood but didn’t want the strong woman under his control. He reached down to pick her up off the floor. There had to be a way to break Vincent’s hold. He tried to stand her on her feet, but she wouldn’t have it. Annoyed, he slung her over his shoulder, dismissed the wolves with a wave and walked out of the room toward the library.

He didn’t know where else to take her. All the bedrooms, although currently empty, belonged to someone. Even the guest bedrooms were being used. He couldn’t place her in her bedroom, as Vincent might smell her. Joseph was pretty sure Mierka, and Vincent had ended up in the tower room and wanted to keep Natalia far away from there. His only other options were the library or the room he shared with Mierka. Under other circumstances, he wouldn’t hesitate to take Natalia to his bed, but now was not the time for that. If he were to sleep with her, he wanted the woman, not the brainless child that sat and pouted angrily at him.

Daily Prompt: battle

From Protector of the Grey House:

Vincent went back down to the kitchen where he knew there would be humans. He made sure to take enough blood to stay awake long enough to do as he pleased to his lovely Natalia. Done, he returned to Natalia, who he found leaning over the bathroom sink. She stared at herself angrily in the mirror. He came up behind her, caressed her arms as he wrapped himself around her and brought her to a standing position. He leaned in and kissed her neck softly.

Natalia tried to pull away, but he had her trapped. “Vincent, this isn’t… I’m not…” She shook her head, as she tried to find the words. “This isn’t right.”

“What? My wanting to make love to you in the wake of a battle? One passion replaces another. Why is that wrong? Because someone died? We will mourn him in three days’ time, Natalia. Tonight, I worship you.”

Daily Prompt: security

From Protector of the Grey House:

When Natalia drank his blood one week later, Vincent couldn’t tell if he had her under his control or not. She was generally willing to try anything he suggested; this time was no different. Or so he thought. Half an hour after giving her his blood he pulled away frustrated, seething with annoyance. He was downstairs in the security room confronting Joseph in seconds.

“Break my hold on her.” His annoyance showed in his voice. Joseph was not worried; Vincent was annoyed with the situation.

“You wish me to break your control on your woman? And why would that be?” Joseph smiled and watched as Vincent’s hands formed into fists.

“I want a willing, experienced woman with a mind of her own. Not a child who needs to be told what to do with every movement.” He paused, took a breath, and calmed his raging emotions. “Go break my hold.”

Joseph’s smile grew wider. “Does this order supersede the order that I’m not to touch her while she’s yours?”

Vincent grabbed Joseph by his shirt, pulled his friend into a standing position, and stared him down. “I could locate Mierka and have both women for the night. Would you prefer that?”

Joseph pulled his master’s hands off his shirt, and smoothed out the wrinkles. He indicated that Vincent should lead the way and followed his master up the stairs to the bedroom. Vincent’s hold on Natalia was easily broken, as she wanted her usual lover and not a stand in.
