Kendra stood, stunned at the accusation in Falco’s voice. He had never been anything but nice to her. Now he looked as if he wanted to tear her apart and watch her slowly bleed to death!
“I-I but…? What did I do?” Kendra asked Falco pleadingly.
Falco just snarled at her and turned to Jude. “I think you’ve done enough damage here, so please leave.”
Jude nodded and without a word, he left.
Kendra, seeing Falco wasn’t going to give her any answers, turned to her sister. “Kimmy?”
Kimmy sighed, and taking Kendra by the arm, she led her to the couch. Once they were seated, Kimmy said, “Kendra, you basically just rejected Tobias.”
Kendra gasp and shook her head in denial. She then said, “No I didn’t! All I did was tell him I needed to stay for information!”
Kimmy shook her head. She then explained in a soft voice, “Tobias was upset and angry Kendra. He needed his beloved to go with him. He needed you to comfort him, help him calm down…”
“Give him the blood he needed!” Falco snarled from the window where he stood. “But nein, you had to…!”
“Falco, please!” Kimmy pleaded as she gave him a look.
Falco left the room.
Kimmy gently cupped Kendra’s cheek in her hand and turned her to look at her. She then said, “You are a vampire hunter. I thought you knew all about their kind.”
Kendra sniffed and shook her head slightly. “Yeah, well, I thought so too. I’m finding out that I know nothing.”
“Okay. Let me try and explain it to you. When a vampire gets emotional, he gets more…clingy, more possessive. Because of the high emotions it also causes them to need more blood,” Kimmy said. “You are Tobias’s beloved, so he was probably craving yours and since there was a hunter in the room, he wished to take you somewhere private. If Jude hadn’t been here, he would probably…maybe, have bitten you here.”
“In front of you and Falco?” Kendra questioned, surprised at this.
Tobias was a very private person. She couldn’t see him doing that, especially with his problem with biting. Of course, no one knew about that.
“Well, yeah,” Kimmy said nodding. “To a vampire, a bite can be almost like a kiss and they feel no shame in it. Oh, Kendra, he needs you, physically and emotionally and you basically told him “screw you”, or at least in his mind that’s what you did.”
Kendra realized how badly she had hurt her angel in her hunt for the truth. It was a truth that could have waited until Tobias was alright, but she had been selfish. Now he was hurting over her stupidity.
Kendra began to cry as she said, “I didn’t know! I just wanted information from Jude and I thought Tobias was just mad. I figured in a few minutes he would cool off and everything would be okay. I didn’t mean to hurt him!”
“Vampires “cool off” differently than human do Kendra,” Kimmy explained. “So, now you need to find him before he does something really stupid that will put him on the hunter’s radar. Right now, he thinks he has lost his beloved and has no wish to live.”
Kendra jumped up off the couch, wiping her face as she asked, “Where would he go?”
“The shop if he wants to work off his anger and if you’re lucky,” Falco said from behind her.
Kendra turned sharply to stare at him. He now looked human again, although still angry. She nodded and said, “Thanks, Falco. I’ll look there after I make sure he isn’t at his house.”
Then she quickly headed for the door and home.
Kendra didn’t find Tobias at home. So, getting in her car, she headed to the shop she knew the brothers owned together.
Pulling up outside, she saw the door was open and loud music was playing. She had to smile, human or vampire, gotta have music to work by!
Walking inside, she saw another man. She thought his name was James and he ran the shop when the brothers were busy at the dealership. She needed to get rid of him if she wanted to talk to Tobias.
“Hey James, um, is Tobias here?” She asked.
He pointed, and she nodded.
She opened her mouth to say something.
James just shook his head and walked out the door closing it behind him.
She walked over to where Tobias’s legs were sticking out from under the car. “I didn’t mean to…I’m so sorry Toby! I love you and I would never EVER reject you. You are everything to me. Please, please…” she begged him, hoping he’d understand and forgive her.
She felt tears flowing down her face because he never moved or showed any sign of coming out. She heard clanking from under the car and she knew he was trying to ignore her.
“Toby, angel, if you don’t come out, I’m gonna come under,” she threatened, deciding to use another tactic.
He still ignored her.
So, she got down on her knees and straddled his legs. Slowly, she inched her body up until her face was even with his. Her body was now laying flush on his, and just the feel of their bodies touching was enough to make her moan lightly.
It was ridiculous how just the feel of this man’s body against hers had her wanting to make love to him. Even right here under this nasty, filthy car!
He was looking up, his arms up, as he fiddled with something.
She knew he was still incredibly angry with her. She could almost feel it coming off him in waves. She knew then that all the words in the world weren’t going to change things.
He had wanted her to comfort him.
Well, now she would do exactly that in a way she knew they both would enjoy!
After all, didn’t actions speak louder than words?
So, very carefully, she pushed up onto her knees just enough that she could run her hands up under his shirt. She pushed it up, baring his chest to her eyes. She pushed it up far enough to expose where the makeshift stake had gone through his shoulder.
She winced at the jagged scaring that was still pink but in the process of healing.
Leaning down, she gently kissed it. She felt him tense, yet she got no other response from him.
“I’m sorry Angel, this is all my fault, but I’m going to make it up to you,” she whispered as she continued to kiss her way across his chest.
Her hands continued to roam across his body, feeling his slightly cool skin. His skin was so smooth, and he smelled so good!
“You feel and smell so good Angel, no one could ever be you,” she whispered to him. “No one could ever take your place in my heart, believe that.”
Then she kissed across his chest once more. His chest hair tickled her nose a bit as she nuzzled through it to find his nipple. Once she found it, she rolled her tongue around it before sucking it into her mouth and nipping. She knew he loved the feel of her teeth on him, as much as she loved feeling his.
His body jerked, and she heard a clank from above her.
She smiled at his reaction to what she’d done. Then she moved over to his other nipple and did the same thing to it as she’d done to the first one. Next, she ran her nails down his side, lightly scraping at his skin.
“Oh, Angel, you make me so aroused just by touching you. You make me want things I never thought I would want. I didn’t like my life, but I was content with it because it was what I knew. You make me want to explore the unknown, but only if I can explore it with you.”
Sliding down his body, leaving kisses as she went, she unfastened his jeans. After freeing his manhood, which was slowly enlarging as his arousal grew, she rubbed it gently.
“I love you, Tobias Vogel, don’t you ever forget that,” she whispered.
Then she proceeded to show him just how much she loved him.
Tobias couldn’t help the groan that escaped him as his Geliebte Kendra rocked his world under the dirty greasy car! Of all places for her to remind him of her love, but he wasn’t going to complain because her mouth felt so good!
He was soon groaning and losing it, his hips jerking in his completion.
“I love you so much Toby,” she whispered to him when she finally pulled her mouth from him.
Looking into her eyes, he saw nothing but the truth. “I love you to meine Geliebte (my beloved). I’m sorry I became so angry, but I…”
She lay a finger across his mouth.
“Sh…it was my fault, not yours.” She gave a sigh and lay her head on his chest. “I just wanted to find out things, things that I felt had been kept from me. I didn’t mean to do wrong by you. I guess I thought I could find things out, then go with you. I didn’t realize how close you were to losing it Toby, I’m so sorry!”
Tobias gave a deep sigh and rubbed his hand along her back up under her shirt. “I think there are a lot of things that we have both assumed about each other baby. I thought because you are a hunter that you would know things. I see now that there are a lot of things about me you don’t know. In a way, that is a good thing because it means the hunters don’t know as much about us as we have always feared.”
“We do know a lot of things, but I’ll admit to not knowing about beloveds. Probably because it's not something that really concerns a hunter as far as destroying a vampire and because we thought that it was more myth than fact.”
“Hm..,” he said before he stiffened.
“What? What’s wrong?” Kendra whispered.
“Someone is coming,” Tobias told her.
“Hey, is it safe to come in yet? I’m not going to be hit by flying objects, am I?” A voice called out.
“Leo, what are you doing here?” Tobias called out with an annoyed hiss.
Leo laughed. “Falco called and said you were mad, upset, and probably out doing something stupid! The way he was talking, I was actually surprised to find you here. Um… why are the two of you under the car?”
“To give you a reason to ask questions,” Tobias grumbled, hating that they had been interrupted.
Kendra laughed even as she fixed his jeans and then slowly crawled out. Once she was out and standing, she asked, “Hey, Leo, how is life treatin’ ya?”
“Good I suppose,” Leo answered slowly, looking puzzled. He then asked, “Did you talk some sense into my Bruder?”
“Talk? Um… no, not so much,” Kendra told him.
Tobias rolled his eyes and crawled out in time to see a startled look cross Leo’s face. He had to laugh at his Bruder’s stupefied look!
“You couldn’t find anywhere except under the car to… to… do whatever you did?” Leo stuttered.
Tobias gave a light chuckle as he murmured, “Teach you to ask questions!”
“When the mood hits,” Kendra added with a giggle.
Leo turned and walked out the door.
Tobias and Kendra laughed until they were in tears, and he knew they were going to be okay.
When the laughter subsided, Tobias took Kendra home.
Then, he took her to their bed where he made love to her over, and over, again. He made sure this time though to give her blood, so she wouldn’t get weak.
It was as if he couldn’t get enough of her, but she didn’t seem to mind. When they could go no more, they lay basking in each other’s arms, content just to be until sleep took them.
When Tobias awakened the next morning, Kendra was still curled up next to him. He lay there for a long time, just running his hand up and down her bare back until hunger forced him from their bed.
Once his hunger was satisfied, he went to lay back down.
“Why are you up so early?” She mumbled as she rolled over and snuggled into his chest.
“Feeding the beast in me.”
Her eyes opened, and she squinted up at him. She then said him softly, “You’re not a beast, you know that, right?”
“I am, in a way, and I pretty much showed that yesterday,” he reminded her.
She gave a sigh and lay her head back down. After a few minutes, she spoke again. “I’m really sorry about yesterday Toby. I wish I could go back in time and change what happened. I want you to know…”
“Nein, stop. Baby, listen to me,” he said as he flipped over. Then, as he leaned over her, he said, “That day at the dealership, when you were fighting that rogue vampire. I know something was different about you. I never thought though that we would be here, that you would be meine Geliebte. I also know that as much as I love you, things will not always be perfect. I am, for the most part, a quiet man who would rather listen than talk, but when angered…”
“You are angry!”
He sighed. “Ja, as are most vampires. Your mutter pushed my buttons and I lost all sight of being reasonable. Kendra, if I had not been angry, I would never have had a problem with you talking to him. It might even have been interesting to hear what he had to say, and I know you want answers. You deserve those answers. At that moment though, I couldn’t see past MY need for you.”
“As your beloved, I need to understand that Toby, all the fault is not yours,” she whispered as she lay her hand on his cheek. “I should have looked at you, really looked at you and realized how close to the edge you were and done as you asked. That is what a good beloved would do.”
“You are a good Geliebte Kendra. As we learn of each other, we will be even better together, and for each other,” he told her.
Laying back down, he pulled her almost on top of him and gave a content sigh. Then he chuckled a bit.
“What is so funny Angel?”
Picking up the hand that had been rubbing circles on his chest, he kissed the back of it. He then said, “I was remembering my first thought when I heard the fighting. It was, why would someone fight in a car lot, that’s what alleys are for. My next thought was how beautiful you were and how good you smelled,” he told her. He then added, “Although, I believe I told you that.”
“I do remember you telling me I smelled like gardenias,” she murmured.
“I was so confused by the feelings I had for you when you ran off into the night. One thought continued to swirl in my mind over, and over, though,” he told her.
She propped up on her elbow and leaned over him. “Oh, and what was that thought?”
He gave her a smirk. “That I, Tobias Vogel, a vampire had been kissed by a hunter”
“Mm… well, the first time was good, so let me do it again.”
So, that’s just what she did!
