After we got to her house I placed her on the couch and was about to leave. It took all my strength not to give in to the urge to kiss her when I was carrying her to her place. It seems like her visions take a lot of energy out of her and she seems to have more visions around me, but why? In our society we have herd of half human half vampire children that have some of the vampire abilities due to the vampire blood. Most of them got the little abilities such as telepathy and nothing else. Jane wasn’t a half-breed though I would’ve been able to sense the vampire blood in her. So how the hell did she get gifted with such powers?
I was about to head towards the door when I thought I heard her say something. I moved closer to hear what she was saying and sat next to her on the couch.
“No, please don’t.”
She must have been having a nightmare, her breathing was picking up and she was beginning to sweat. I passed my hand through her hair trying to calm her down but it didn’t seem to be working. What could she possibly be dreaming about that’s got her so worked up?
“No! Leave them alone! Stop!”
She jumped up from the couch with tears in her eyes and almost knocked me off my feet. I walked over to her and wrapped my arms around her, not knowing what to say I just lead her to the couch and sat with her until she calmed down. Having her so close to me was sending all kinds of shocks over me and her sweet smell was hypnotizing me.
“I’m sorry Julian. The visions come in dreams sometimes and I can’t control them.”
“Its ok it’s not your fault. If you want I can stay for awhile and keep you company.”
She nuzzled her faced against my chest and stayed there for a minute. Her breathing had calmed down and I could hear the steady sound of her heart beating. I took a deep breath and tried to think of something to say to break the silence but couldn’t come up with a thing. She turned her face so that she was looking up at me and our lips were just inches from touching each other. Damn I wish I could read her mind right now because I want to kiss her but I don’t want to freak her out.
“Thank you for helping me get to my place safely but you didn’t have to carry me though.”
“Its okay I kind of enjoyed it.”
She smiled at me and the next thing I knew our lips were touching and I could’ve sworn I saw fireworks. I don’t know who leaned in first but it was the most intense feeling I have ever felt. I deepened the kiss and she let out a small moan that had me about to lose the little control that I had left. She slowly backed up and all I could do was stare at her.
“Sorry I didn’t mean to just kiss you out of no where like that I don’t know what happened.”
“It’s okay I’ve actually thought about kissing you since we first met.”
She smiled at me and started to blush, I want to lean in for another kiss but I didn’t want to seem to forward.
“Um, so do you want something to eat? I could make you something if you want.”
She got up from the couch and I instantly felt a little empty inside. This has to be the worst timing ever for me to be having this attraction to her. After that intense kiss I don’t think that I would be able to stay away from her. I got up and sat at the table in her kitchen.
“It’s okay I already ate. But I would like to have diner with you later on today though, if you don’t mind.”
“Are you asking me out on a date?”
“I’m a little rusty at asking girls out I haven’t been on a date in awhile but yeah I’m asking you out on a date. So you wanna have diner tonight if you’re not busy?”
“Hell yeah. I mean sure we can do that.”
I laughed and started to get up to leave.
“I’ll be back around 7 to pick you up."
I walked to the door and gave her a smile before leaving. I had other things that I needed to get done today and if I stayed with her any longer I wouldn’t be able to leave. I had to go see Alex about the vampire hunter issues and figure out what to wear and where to go on our date. When I told her that I haven’t been on a date in awhile I was saying that as an understatement, it’s been almost 50 years since I had to court a woman. I just hope that I still know how to do it; I guess tonight we’ll see.
After taking 2 hours to figure out what I was going to wear to my date with Jane I finally found something that I liked. Just as I got done getting ready I herd a knock at my front door and instantly went into defense mode. I grabbed the knife that I had in my back pocket and went to answer the door. Before opening it, I did a mental scan of the perimeter and started to calm down. I opened the door and gave my brother an annoyed look.
“What’s up Tony?”
He looked me up and down and let out a whistle.
“Wow, where you going looking all jazzy and dressed up?”
“Got a date actually.”
He looked at me with a surprised look on his face and started laughing. I didn’t understand what was so funny, I know it’s been awhile but I still felt like I knew how to treat a woman.
“And who is the so called lucky lady that is going on this date with you? Jane?”
I gave him a nervous look and turned around to get my car keys, it was around 6:30 and I didn’t want to be late for our first date. Breezing past him and heading towards the front door, I put up a mental block between Tony, Alex, and I. It was bad enough they were constantly in my mind almost everyday, I can't have them messing with me while out with Jane.
“It is with Jane isn’t it? Finally you took my advice and asked her out. I bet you guys would have cute vampire half breed babies and I can finally become an uncle.”
I smacked him on the back of the head and walked towards my car.
“Don’t get your hopes up Tony, its just one date.”
“Sure, to any human it would be just one date but to you its different and we both know it. We both know the situation and how you can't read her and normally for a vampire that only means one thing. You’ve found your mate. Just don’t screw it up, you’ve waited over 150 years for this.”
I looked at my reflection in the mirror and finished up the last of my makeup. I was a little nervous about going on a date with Julian since I haven’t been out on a date for almost three years. Since he left, all I have been thinking about was that hot steamy kiss. I don’t know what came over me but having him hold me like that after having that nightmare made me feel safe and I couldn’t help it. He was just too sexy to resist. I looked at myself in the full-length mirror in my bedroom and liked the outfit that I picked for the night. I was wearing a strapless black cocktail dress that hugged my curves with ruby red earrings and some red pumps. I tried to look sexy-classy and I hoped that he like it. I looked at the clock on my nightstand and saw that it was almost seven o'clock and decided to wear my hair down so that it came down around my shoulders and chest. Just then I herd a knock at the door and got butterflies in my stomach.
“Come on Jane, its just a date.”
I grabbed my purse and headed towards my front door. I looked through the peephole to make sure that it was him and opened the door. As soon as he walked through the door I got speechless. He was wearing a sexy black tux that made him look like he was fresh out of a James Bond movie, he had wore his hair lose this time and I found myself wanting to run my hands through it. I was so mesmerized by how good he looked that I barely noticed the roses in his hand.
“I’m sorry what?”
He gave me a weird look and started to laugh.
“I said these are for you. I was walking by a flower shop, saw these and they reminded me of you.”
“Roses remind you of me? Well that’s different.”
“I meant they looked beautiful and I think you’re beautiful so I got them for you.”
I let out a small laugh and blushed a little thinking how sweet it was of him to get me the roses. I grabbed the roses and turned to go put them in some water in the kitchen.
“Thank you they’re beautiful. So, shall we go?”
The rest of the night played out like a fairy tale. He took me to the best 5-star Italian restaurant and we talked about anything and everything from my childhood to my powers to his family life with his brother and sister. The night was going so well that when he walked my to my front door I didn’t want it to end. I turned around to face him and once I looked into those perfect blue eyes I was lost. He leaned in and brushed his lips against mine. Instantly I felt a shock go through my body and let out a small moan. I wrapped my arms around his neck and deepened the kiss. He moaned and pinned me up against my apartment door and I almost got lost in the technique in his kiss. I ended the kiss as I realized that we were still standing outside of my apartment. I looked up and sucked in a breath from shock after seeing his eyes, they were no longer the sexy sapphire blue but was now a navel blue almost black.
What the fuck?
He took in a deep breath and started to trail kisses down my neck, I almost lost my mind and was about to tell him to just take me right there.
“How about we go inside Julian.”
I turned around and unlocked my door once inside I walked over to the bathroom and splashed some water in my face. This was going way too fast for me but in a way its also not going fast enough. I don’t know what the hell is going on with me really, all I knew was that I wanted that man more than I wanted any other man in my life. I walked out of the bathroom and found him sitting on the couch. I didn’t know whether to go sit next to him or to keep a distance for the moment to collect some composure.
“Um, I’m sorry if I scared you or anything. I didn’t mean to jump on you like that.”
He looked at me with sorrow filed eyes like he did something wrong. I sat next to him on the couch and noticed that his eyes were back to the sexy sapphire blue.
“Wow that’s weird.”
“I could’ve sworn that a minute ago your eyes were navel blue almost black but now they are light like sapphire blue.”
“Uh, you must be imagining things.”
He looked off to the side as if trying to avoid my gaze. Something was up and I know he wasn’t telling me everything. For some reason I felt hurt that he would hide something from me, I don’t know why though. Ever since I met this man my life has been getting weirder and weirder and now I feel that his secret could be whats been messing with me. Im going to get some answers tonight, even if I have to be sneaky to get them. I placed my hand on his thigh and started to trail up near his private area. I herd him take in a breath and I instantly smiled. Yeah this is going to be so easy. I got up and sat on his lap so that my ass was right on his crouch. He closed his eyes and I could tell that he was fighting for control. I started grinding a little bit and herd him moan. When he opened his eyes they were that almost navel black again. Ha, I got you now. I want to see how he would explain it now.
“Julian, care to explain why your eyes changed colors again?”
He placed his hands on my hips to stop me from grinding on him anymore and gave me a look like he knew I got him worked up on purpose.
“You are one sneaky female.”
I faked a shocked look and put my hand up to my mouth like I was offended.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, now answer the question sweetheart.”
“Well I guess you would have to find out sooner or later anyway. The truth is my eyes change colors with my emotions. They change navel blue when I am excited as you can tell from the bulge in my pants right now. When I am angry, they turn pitch black.”
“Okay so how is it you have magic mood changing eyes? I mean that’s kind of hard to believe.”
“Its possible because I’m not really…human. I was born roughly 250 years ago and have other abilities such as mind reading, super sensitive hearing, super strength and some other abilities that comes with being a vampire.”
I looked at him as if he was crazy. This man must be out of his fucking mind to think that I would believe that he was a damn vampire. I mean that’s just impossible and what the hell was this about him being 250 he doesn’t look to be older than 25. He must be messing with me.
“So you expect me to believe that you are 250 years old and that you are a vampire? Do I look that damn stupid to you?”
“Okay fine I’ll prove it to you.”
He opened his mouth and right there in front of me two of his upper teeth turned into fangs. What. The. Fuck. I jumped off of his lap and moved to the other end of the room. He started walking towards me and I could see the desperation and hurt in his eyes.
“Don’t be scared of me Jane. You’re my Alter, I would never hurt you.”
I tried to calm down as everything he just said started to really register in my mind. I can't believe vampires are real and I was just making out with one outside my front door. Wow my life jus got even more complicated.
“How the fuck are vampires even real? Shouldn’t it be impossible for you to walk around in the sun? What the hell is an Alter?”
“Slow down Jane I can only answer one question at a time. As you can see vampires are real, some of us can go out in the sun but only a rare few and an Alter is the vampire way of saying soul mate.”
I stood there just staring at him while trying to register everything that he just said. My head started to pound and I started to lose the control that I had on my gift. The barrier started to slowly come down and I was able to hear the thoughts of everyone in the building. My vision started to blur and I started to get dizzy as the throbbing got worse. Trying to walk over to the couch, I lost my balance and everything went black.
