Chapter 18

The night of the party had finally arrived, and Camilla was excited. She was excited because this was the first party, she’d been to in quite some time. She was also excited because she was going to show off the man she loved to her family and friends.

She sighed, Leo, on the other hand, didn’t seem nearly as excited. In fact, she felt like he was worried about something, though she wasn’t sure what.

Walking out of the bathroom after her shower, she found him lying on the bed staring into space. Sitting down next to him, she said, “Leo, baby, tell me what’s wrong.”

Leo looked over at her as he huffed a bit. “I’m not sure this is a good idea. You know how I feel about crowds. All those beating hearts in one place, all that delicious blood just begging to be taken.” Leo’s eyes began to turn red and his fangs descended even as he spoke, licking his lips.

Camilla bit her lip. In all her excitement, she had completely forgotten about how much trouble Leo had with being around people. She was such a horrible beloved.

“I’m sorry, Leo,” she whispered. “I forgot about that because I was so excited for you to meet my friends. Maybe we should just…”

Turning his head to look at her, he cut her off by saying, “Nein, Geliebte. It is planned, and too late to cancel now. I will be alright… I hope.”

She gazed into his red eyes before glancing down at his fangs. They were so long and sharp, yet he hadn’t ever hurt her with them. In fact, it was very pleasurable when he bit her during lovemaking. She gave a soft sigh as she thought about making love to him now.

Pulling her towel away from her body, she moved over to straddle his body where it lay across the bed. Leaning down, she kissed him on the cheek and along his jawline as she unbuttoned his shirt.

“Little one,” he moaned.

She felt him harden under her and released a moan of her own. “Make love to me, Leo.”

Suddenly, she was laying under him, whimpering as he touched her, aroused her, made her beg for his touch.

Leo moved down her body. When he reached her right thigh, he scraped his teeth over it even as she bucked needing her release. Then he was sinking his fangs into her as his fingers sank deep into her womanly folds, arousing her even more as she pleaded for him to take her.

Just when she thought she could take no more, Leo was gone. Then he was back, naked, and putting on a condom before thrusting deeply into her. She smiled as he took them both to pleasurable heights, their bodies moving as one. When he drove her over the edge, she came screaming his name, her thighs tightening on his hips as if she thought he would fly away from her.

When he found his release inside the warm folds of his Geliebte, he hissed out, “Ich Liebe Dich, I love you, Camilla.”

She smiled up at him as she brought her hand up to brush it along his cheek. “Oh, Leo, I love you too.”

Leo chuckled then. “You know you’ve made us late, right?”

She looked over at the clock and screeched as she began pushing him off her. “We’re gonna be late! Ugh… I need another shower!”

Leo fell back on the bed, letting her get up. He roared with laughter as she ran for the bathroom. Suddenly, he wasn’t so worried about this party tonight, nein, he was too busy floating on a cloud of love.

Camilla breathed a sigh of relief when they reached her parent’s home and realized they weren’t terribly late. She and Leo quickly headed inside.

Her mother was waiting and asked, “Camilla, where have the two of you been? Your grandparents are here, quickly now, go introduce Leo to them.”

“Yes, Mother,” Camilla said quietly. She led Leo toward the couch where her grandparents were seated. “Grandmother, Grandfather, this is my husband, Leo,” Camilla said. “Leo, this is Robert and Jill Richards, my mother’s parents.”

“It is a pleasure to meet you,” Leo said as he shook Robert’s hand and kissed Jill’s. He made small talk with them, quickly charming them. Then he made an excuse of needing a drink and walked off.

Camila knew the crowd was already affecting him and he was going out for air.

“Your husband is a sweet man, grand-daughter. He treats you well?” Grandmother asked.

“Oh, yes, ma’am!” Camilla agreed with a big smile. He…” she turned as she heard the front door.

In stepped Leo’s mother and father, along with the rest of the Vogel brood.

“Who is that dear?” Grandfather asked. “I don’t recognize any of them.”

“That is Leo’s family,” Camilla answered. “Please excuse me.”

She then stood and met Leo halfway across the room. They crossed the rest of the way together.

Vater, Mutter, I am so glad you came,” Leo murmured as he gave them each a hug. “Come, let me introduce you all to Camilla’s parents.”

Leo took Camilla’s hand, and they led the way.

“Mr. And Mrs. Smythe, this is my Vater… eh, Father and Mother, Jantis and Ingrid Vogel,” Leo said by way of introduction. “Vater, Mutter, this is Camilla’s parents, Willard and Maryanne Smythe.”

“So nice to meet you both,” Ingrid said.

“Same,” Camilla’s parents both murmured as hands were shaken.

“Let me introduce my Sohns. This is Bruno, he is my second born. My third born, Tobias, and his wife Kendra. My fourth born, Falco, and his wife Kimberly, who will be giving us our first grandbaby soon,” Ingrid said proudly. She then finished with, “My fifth born Sohn, Felix.”

More handshaking went on, and a quiet conversation was started until…

“Camilla! Your friend is here and wants to meet the man who has taken you from me!”

Everyone turned to find Shelly standing in the doorway, posing with a pouty look.

Camilla laughed and ran to hug her.

“Oh, Shelly, you made it,” Camilla almost cried. Except for their phone conversations, they had both been too busy to meet up.

“Of course, I did girly. Now, did you bring one of his hunky bros for me to meet? Hm, did you?” Shelly asked as she wiggled her eyebrows up and down.

“Well, I didn’t bring them with me, but they’re here. Sorry, two of the four are taken though,” Camilla told her with a giggle.

“Shucks! Well, let me meet the two that aren’t at least,” Shelly said with a wink.

So, taking her over to where everyone was standing, Camilla spoke, “Hey everyone, this is my best friend in the whole world, Shelly. Shelly, I want you to meet Leo.”

Shelly went to stand in front of Leo and looked at him from head to toe as she hummed a bit. “He isn’t exactly what I was expecting, Camilla. I was truly expecting someone a bit more... um…” she leaned toward Camilla, and putting her hand to her mouth, so she could whisper, she said, “…scary. You know, more like a monster, but he honestly looks normal.”

Camilla had to giggle. “Are you disappointed, Shelly?”

Shelly shrugged, but before she could say anything else, someone else walked into the room.

Camilla watched as the tall blond man stopped just inside the doorway and looked around before his eyes stopped on where she and Leo were standing. He then headed their way.

Camilla smiled, “Dean, I’m so glad you could make it.”

Shelly turned to greet the newcomer with a smile only to catch her breath and freeze. Then she breathlessly said, “Oh, Camilla, please tell me this guy in front of me is real.”

Shelly is a tall, leggy brunette. Tall, meaning she’s almost six feet, but Dean made her look almost short.

Dean’s eyes locked with Shelly’s, a shocked look passing over his face before he took her hand and kissed it as he bowed over it. “My name is Dean, and what might your name be, beloved?”

Camilla gasp as she listened to what he had said, and looking over at Leo, she saw him nod.

“My name is Shelly, and where have you been my whole life, you tall drink of water?” She asked him, still sounding breathless. She turned to Camilla, asking, “Is he like Leo?”

“Yes,” Camilla answered.

Dean straightened and pulled Shelly into his arms as he looked at Camilla questioningly. “She knows?”

Camilla looked around and saw that Leo’s family was surrounding them, so she spoke softly for their ears only. “If you remember, Dean, I told you I had dreams.”

He nodded in remembrance.

“They started when I was fourteen and stayed with me for eighteen years until the day, I met Leo. Shelly was my closest friend and I told her everything. Every time I had one, and all the details. She never questioned my sanity when I told her the man in my dreams wasn’t human. She only raised an eyebrow and asked, ‘Are you sure?’, and I told her yes.

“She listened as I mooned over him, lusted for him, wished for him, and eventually told me I was crazy for being in love with a dream. Regardless, she didn’t try to stop me when I decided to travel halfway across the states to find him. She just wished me good luck.

“She was the only one that knew about those dreams and one day she asked me why. I asked, ‘why what?’. She said, ‘why are you so determined to find this man, this vampire?’, and do you know what I told her?” Camilla asked as she looked around at them all.

Everyone shook their heads.

Camilla smiled as she turned back to look at Leo. “I told her it was because I want a vampire to kiss me. You, my sweet vampire dream man, you were the vampire fate chose for that.”

“I will be forever grateful for that, meine Geliebte,” Leo told her.

Then, her very real vampire kissed her again.
