Prologue

London, England 1256

Pain—so much pain. What was wrong with him? he asked himself. Javon screamed, but all he heard was his echo. His eyes could suddenly see in the complete black what looked like a cave. He could smell the dampness in the air. He heard footsteps approaching and he was scared that whoever brought him to the cave had come back to hurt him. He looked around but found nothing. He grabbed a rock. He knew it wouldn’t do much damage, but also knew it might be enough of a distraction to escape.

He prepared himself, but put down the rock when he saw a woman approach. She was stunning and so beautiful. Tall and slender with dark skin and equally dark eyes.

“Calm down, child.” She spoke in an authoritative tone that immediate made him listen.

“I am Sally. I made you. I am your Sire and you are my child. Do you understand?”

Javon nodded his head. He understood the words but was uncertain what they meant. “Why have you brought me here to this cave?”

“I needed a secluded dark place for you to transition. You were hurt and I turned you to save your life. I’m sorry I had to change you like that, Javon, but you are changed for the better.”

Javon was more confused than ever. Sally had a very hypnotic, soothing voice but he didn’t have a clue what she was talking about. Perhaps she was a bit touched in the head.

“Woman, take me from here and I will see to it you get treatment for your condition,” Javon said to Sally.

Sally just looked at him and laughed. “I am not mad; I am a Vampire and now you are one, too. I saved you and now you belong to me; you are my son. Think, what is the last thing you remember?”

“I was in the tavern and I got in a fight with some bloody wanker over a poker game. I got thrown out and then the nobb who, by the way, cheated, stabbed me. There was so much blood. It bloody hurt. I tried walking back to the boarding house but I got dizzy and sat to rest, then I woke up here.”

“I was walking by looking for my evening meal and I smelled blood. I found you almost dead from blood loss. I saved you.”

Javon studied Sally’s face. She looked so innocent. She couldn’t be the vile creature she claimed to be. He turned suddenly as several sounds assaulted his ears. He covered his ears to block it out. Sally was beside him in an instant, cradling him in her comforting arms. She moved his hands from his ears. “It’s your new Vampire hearing; just take deep breaths and it will settle down.”

Javon closed his eyes and relaxed. He breathed slowly and the sounds decreased and finally quieted down to nothing but a soft whisper. “Sally?” Javon whispered.

“Yes, child.”

“Can we leave the cave now?” he asked.

“Yes, but once we leave you will have to feed. There is a farm not far from here. They have livestock and the blood will be sufficient until we find a better source.”

Sally took Javon’s hand and they walked what seemed like a mile before they finally reached the opening. The air smelled fresh; fresher than he remembered. They started walking and soon came to a small house and a barn where they housed horses and other animals. Javon stopped and inhaled the air.

“I can smell something in the house; something so delicious.” Javon turned to run toward the house, but Sally took hold of his arm.

“I am your sire; you will not enter that house. You smell human blood but you aren’t ready. You need to feed on the animals first. Pick one and feed.”

“I can’t; it’s disgusting and I won’t do it.”

Sally led Javon into the barn and sat down on a chair. “I will sit here until you feed; we have all night.”

Javon leaned against the wall defiantly and folded his arms. He was stubborn but his Vampire instincts took over and his fangs came down and ached. It was a thirst so severe, he had no idea what he was doing and then he realized he was feeding on a sheep. As soon as he realized what he was doing, he let go and stepped away.

“Good job. See? Not so bad.”

“I’m not human anymore, am I?”

Sally took Javon in her arms and took his face into her hands. “Listen—I wasn’t given a choice when I was made either. You will survive and you will be what you make of your life.”

Javon nodded. He wasn’t sure why but he believed her. He believed she would help him in his new life as a Vampire.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1

“Are you okay, Beautiful?”

A hand came down and helped her up and handed her back her glasses. Once Abby was once again upright, she noticed whom the hand belonged to: the most gorgeous guy she had ever seen. She was taken aback. He was tall at six and a half feet, and he had very light porcelain skin, almost like a statue. He was very muscular under his fitted shirt and had dark brown hair curled at the end. He was wearing all black, and he wore it well.

“I’m fine. Sorry I smacked into you. Running and high heels don’t mix, I guess,” Abby said shyly, trying to get her bearings. She had been concentrating so much on not falling, she hadn’t looked where she was going. She vowed at that moment to never wear high heels again; she just wasn’t coordinated enough for them.

It was a busy Friday night so she had to park several blocks away.

“Are you headed to the bar at the corner – Viper?” the handsome stranger asked.

“Bar? Oh yes, that's right. I’m meeting a friend. Are you headed there?”

“Yes; I was going for a drink.”

As Abby and the stranger walked to the bar together, she couldn't help feeling nervous, although she knew he was just walking with her to be polite. She continued walking and just at that moment she thought she could hear him inhale deeply, like he smelled her hair. She looked over to see he was leaning over her slightly. Strange—but she decided she must be mistaken. Why would he smell her hair? That's just weird.

“Okay, well here we are. Sorry again for running into you.” She thought it was too bad she was meeting Jenny; it would be nice to have a drink with him, not that he would ask.

“Believe me when I say I am quite happy you smacked into me. Before we part ways, I would like to know your name.”

“My what? Oh yeah, name; I have one of those. I'm Abby Montgomery.

He laughed a moment at her getting all flustered. “Well, Abby, I am Javon Bouvier. I will leave you to your date, and go have my drink.”

“Not a date, just drinks with a friend,” she said with what she thought was a flirtatious smile, but never having tried to flirt before she wasn't sure if she pulled it off. Abby knew she probably didn’t have a chance with him but she couldn’t help but entertain the idea. “Thanks for walking me. I am sorry again for running into you.”

Javon nodded and walked away into the bar. She couldn’t help but admire the view as he walked away. His ass was like an underwear model’s—all perfect, round, and yummy. He turned around and gave her a knowing smile and sat at a bar stool.

She started blushing and walked into the bar. She couldn't believe she just got caught checking him out.
At least he knows I'm interested
, she thought to herself.

The crowd at Viper was a mix of all kinds of people, from bikers to college students. It was a small bar with a couple pool tables, a bar area, and only about a dozen tables.

Abby was a little shy but wanted to start getting out more. She never thought of herself as drop dead gorgeous; only average looking. However, she did what she could to play up her assets. Standing at five foot five, she had shoulder length blonde hair, which she had let down that night, and very pretty blue eyes, although they weren't as noticeable because of her glasses. Abby always felt a little bigger than what she would like to be, but at a size twelve, she was by no means fat. She wore a low cut navy top with a not-too-short black skirt, having come straight from her job as a medical coder. She had met with a potential client in downtown Detroit so she just came straight from the meeting.

Abby’s phone started ringing as soon as she sat down. “Sorry, Abby, but I can't make it,” Jenny apologized as soon as she answered her phone.

“Not again,” Abby complained. Jenny was her best friend and she loved her to death, but it seemed like she was always being blown off for whatever boyfriend Jenny had at the time. In many ways, Abby was jealous of her friend for having such an active social life.

“You've got to be kidding. I'm already waiting at the bar and I'm really looking forward to spending time with you!”

“I know, Abby; I'll make it up to you, I promise. Jeff surprised me with a romantic night at home. I can't just blow him off,” Jenny said.

Why not? You blow me off all the time!
“You owe me, Jenny.” As Abby shut her phone, her hopes for a fun evening were ruined. Now what? She sat down and ordered a drink.

As she looked up, she noticed Javon staring at her. Their eyes met, but he said nothing, only continued to study her intently with his piercing green eyes. She smiled at the thought that he might possibly be interested in her. She turned around, checking to make sure he wasn't looking at someone else but found no one. He was seated a few stools away, and she watched as he got up and moved over to sit next to her.

“Mind If I sit, Abby? Until your friend arrives, of course.”

“Sure. She actually just called and cancelled, though,” Abby said, happy to have a reason to stay while she finished her drink.

“That will give us more time to get to know each other.”

“I guess you’re right.” She couldn't help but feel a strong attraction to him.

“So, Abby, can I buy you a drink?”

“That would be great, but you’ll have to wait until I finish this one. You don’t mind, do you?” Abby said with a teasing smile.

“Of course not. Shall we get a table with a little more privacy?” he asked huskily.

“Okay.” Abby nodded. As she walked to the table Javon chose in the corner of the bar, she felt her body come alive just by being near him.

Javon was the type of guy that could get anyone he wanted. She thought how lucky she was that she wore a low cut top that showed lots of cleavage tonight. As Abby sat at the table, she wasn’t sure what she should talk about. Small talk had never been her strong suit.

“So, Abby, do you live in the area?”

“I work at home as a Medical Coder. This is actually closer to the Hospital where I was meeting with a potential client.”

“Do you like it?” Javon asked as he reached out and took hold of her hand.

“I do; it’s nice being able to work in my pajamas if I want to.” Abby laughed. “What about you? What do you do when you’re not picking up women in bars?”

Javon held her hand as they talked; his touch was soft and a little rough at the same time. Abby noticed the warmth of his hand and his scent wafted through the air. She wondered if that was cologne he was wearing or his natural musky scent.

“Actually, I’m in between jobs. I’ve made some good investments so I’m just figuring out my next business venture.”

“You’re not married, are you? Because I won’t be your mistress if that’s what you’re after.” Abby was looking at him with a serious look on her face. She had seen too many of her girlfriends get tricked into dating married men.

Javon couldn't help but laugh. “No, not married. I would, however, like to see more of you very soon. I would love to get to know you better.”

Abby just stared at Javon, not answering at first. Javon had a panicked look on his face.

“You mean a date?” Abby asked, unsure.

“Yes, a date. You and me and possibly some food,” Javon replied.

“I think that would be fun.” Abby wasn't sure what to think, but she was excited! He wanted to see her again. Javon gave her a smile that melted her heart.
Score! Hot guy just asked me out!

Abby smiled before she noticed that he was suddenly staring at someone across the room. She turned around to see who it was. There was a creepy looking man with shoulder length blond hair and sunglasses sitting at the bar, looking their way. He seemed to be giving Javon a dirty look. His all-black leather trench coat gave him a sinister look.

“Who is that?” she asked. Javon look shocked at seeing the man, as if he knew him.

“Nobody; he looks familiar, but I must be mistaken. He was probably checking you out.”

The creepy man gave Javon an evil grin and made a hasty retreat. Abby and Javon continued talking before they finally exchanged numbers and made plans to go out the next night.

“I'll walk you to your car,” Javon said to Abby while taking her hand.

They walked out of the bar and Abby started to shiver, as it was a cool night out. Javon noticed and put his arm around her. Her body reacted to his touch immediately. She wanted to feel more of it. She wanted to snuggle up to him like a warm teddy bear.

“Well, this is my car,” Abby said as they reached her car after a short walk. While staring into his green eyes, she didn't want the night to end. She was tempted to invite him home with her but decided against that idea.

If only he would kiss me; I could die a happy girl.

Before she could say another word, his lips brushed against hers. His body was suddenly against hers, pushing her back up against her car. His tongue caressed hers, invading her mouth. Instead of thinking, she leaned up against the car and enjoyed it. She wanted him but couldn't bring herself to let him know. Abby felt his hands caressing her back as they kissed. He then pulled away suddenly.

“I'll see you tomorrow; I can't wait for our date,” Javon said with a sexy smile.

“That sounds like an excellent idea,” Abby murmured.
