I wiped my lips free of blood and made my way back into the bar. The guy was a donor, so I wouldn’t get into trouble with anyone. He wasn’t to my taste, but I was hungry and Dylan pointed him out to me.
Liz spotted me and ran over to me “Willow, where did you go with that guy?”
“I helped him to the cab. He couldn’t stand straight” I said, and she handed me a drink “Where did you go with that guy?”
Liz smacked my arm and laughed “Nowhere! Just to the toilet”
“Huh” I smirked “You dirty cow”
“Moo,” Liz narrowed her eyes at me “You need to get laid.”
I snorted and walked away from her, heading to the bar for another drink. As a vampire, I could handle my alcohol and I could drink anyone under the table. It was one of the good things about being a vampire.
In a way, I hated being a vampire. There were so many things that I couldn’t do. I had to watch my friends grow old and die. I didn’t like to think that my best friend was going to grow and die of old age, or even a disease. I hated knowing that when I hit a certain age, I would have to stop seeing her.
As I stepped up to order a drink, a hand gripped the top of my arm. I was going to tell them to fuck off, but I stopped when I saw blue hair.
“Leo,” I breathed “What’s up?”
A low growl rumbled in his throat, “We need to talk.”
I grinned “No problem cutie!”
“D-d-don’t call me cute!” He said, dragging me behind him “I’m not fucking cute!”
His brothers stared with wide eyes as they saw him drag me outside to a smoking area. He pushed me hard and I fell onto the bench. He sat opposite me with his arms folded.
“Are you pouting?”
“Shut the fuck up,” He hissed “Why were you kissing that guy?”
“Ummm,” I frowned “Because I wanted to? He was a donor and I was hungry.”
“Tch,” Leo glared at me “Donor or not, you don’t fucking bite them in the club.”
I rolled my eyes “I didn’t...it was in the alley”
Leo clenched his fists and didn’t say anything.
“Is that all you wanted to talk to me about?” I asked tilting my head.
“No,” He said through gritted teeth “It’s not”
“Oh” I was so confused “Then...what is it?”
Leo sighed and ran his hands through his hair. A cute and sexy gesture, that made me ignore the heat pooling in the pit of my stomach.
I almost told him to do it again. I just hoped that he didn’t bother with reading my thoughts cause damn, I wanted to see what was under his clothes again. I had seen him butt naked, but that was because the fire burnt it away, along with his skin, but shit.
Calm down, girl. Put your lust in a box and throw it away. It was never going to happen with this vampire. Especially a vampire who was of royal blood. I looked up at him and frowned. It looked like he was struggling with getting his words out.
I sighed, “Leo, what did you want to talk to me about? I can’t leave my friend in there for too long or some creepy guy will try and snatch her from under my nose.”
“I...” He paused and cursed under his breath “I’m...sorry...for being a...for being a dick towards you.”
I smiled “You don’t need to say sorry for that. You have always been a dick towards me.”
“I’ve met you once.”
“No,” I said, my smile faltering slightly “You’ve met me more than once, but I don’t expect you to remember that”
“I don’t think I’d forget your face,” Leo said, then his eyes widened slightly “I mean, who could forget that-that ugly face?”
“I’m slightly hurt by that,” I said, trying not to stop smiling “If that is all you wanted, then I’m going.”
Leo reached out and grabbed my wrist “Wait. Don’t go...not yet”
I sighed and sat back down. I crossed my legs and his eyes trailed down to my bare legs. I saw him gulp and I couldn’t help but smile.
“Are you that desperate?” I laughed, and he didn’t say anything “Wait. Was I right?”
“I owe you,” He muttered, “Even though I didn’t want it, you saved me.”
“Oh my god!” I groaned, “I’ve told your brothers that none of you owe me. I was happy to help even if I was burnt to a crisp” I saw his lips twitch “Is that funny?”
“No,” He said, and he finally smiled “My brothers don’t owe you. I do”
I sighed and shook my head “What is it with you and your brothers? You don’t owe me!”
“If you need blood then take mine,” Leo said, almost too quickly “I mean...if you want it.”
I blinked quickly. Did I hear that right? Leo was offering me his blood?
“Are you feeling alright?” I said, “You...Leo, you don’t offer your blood to anyone. No one get's to bite you.”
“Human blood isn’t helping you heal,” He said and pointed at the burn on the inside of my thigh “You are too nice to ask for vampire blood. I will do this for you, but only because if my brothers saw you were still healing, they would be...angry with me”
“A gentleman wouldn’t look up a girl’s skirt,” I said, feeling my face burn.
Leo laughed slightly and my heart jumped into my throat “Baby, I’m no gentleman.”
