I was chatting with some folks on twitter yesterday about my vampires and the plans I have for the next book in my series and so today I’m going with a kiss from the second book in my Point Vamp Series: Stopping Point.
Josh is a vampire he just doesn’t quite know it yet.
He is confused and his voluptuous sire, Cara is far too busy being mysterious to really help him unlock the secrets of his Afterlife. However, he pieces it together by himself and decides to turn his best mates into Vampires too. This doesn’t quite go to plan but he does discover The Point and its unique, ten-second rule.
Cara does not approve of Josh visiting The Point but that night she turns up at his door bloodied and much more dead than usual, and accepts Josh’s help to escape from her much older and much crazier Sire Leopold. How is Josh going to defeat an older, wiser and more powerful vampire? He hasn’t a clue but for Cara he is willing to find out.
Now here’s a kiss between Josh and his sire, Cara but first a bit of banter!
“My sire? You’re a woman. And how do you know my name?”
“You’ve not read many vampire novels, have you? A sire is the vampire who made you, dear, and it has nothing to do with that vampire’s sex. And I know your name because I hunted you down. I’ve seen your employee name tag.”
“Okay, that’s a little freaky.”
“You’ve just fucked a girl tied to a tree and drunk her blood, and you think me looking you up in the supermarket is freaky?” She laughed. “Boy, you’re such a newbie.”
“Can vampires burn up in the sun?” Josh asked, determined to change the subject. “Yes, but with high protection sun lotion, good glasses and avoiding high noon we can
survive the sun’s rays.”
“How can vampires be killed?”
“Oh, the usual…stake, beheading, fire. Gunshots and knife wounds are painful for a while, as are broken bones, but they heal. It’s no big deal.”
“Are there a lot of vamps in the world?”
“Oh, a fair few. It’s a minority, really. A small minority compared to humans, but you can expect to find a hundred or so in every major city, a few in every town and the odd one in villages. Mostly, we like cities. More nameless victims to go through.”
“Are there other beings, you know, fairytale beings, too?”
“Well, I’ve not seen any but I don’t rule it out. I’ve heard rumours, though.” “Do you work?”
“No, I don’t need to.”
“How come?” Josh asked, sitting down on the fridge mound beside her. “I’m in real estate,” she said. “My money makes itself.”
“Oh,” Josh replied trying to work out what she actually meant.
“I had to work at first, of course. We might not need to buy food, but we still need clothes and a house to live in. Anyway, I started saving, bought my first house and I’ve been making money off my portfolio ever since.”
“How old are you?”
“No, no, no,” she laughed and laid a finger on his cheek. “It is impolite to ask a lady her
“No, I don’t mean that. I can see you’re pretty young, similar in age to me, I think. I mean, how long have you been a vampire?”
“Oh, about fifty years now.”
“Is that old for a vampire?” Josh asked, trying not to think of Cara as being older than his grandma.
“No, not really. I know a few who are hundreds of years old.” “Wow,” Josh exclaimed.
“Yeah, that’s quite an achievement. You have to be pretty wily to last that long. The first few years are the toughest on a vamp, but once you get to my age, you know most of what you need to know.”
“Cara?” Josh was full of questions.
“Yes, Josh,” she smiled and flicked a curl of golden hair behind her ear. “Why did you pick me? Why didn’t you just drain me?”
“Oh, I had my reasons.” Cara stood up in a flurry and Josh wondered why she was so obviously flustered. If she’d been a human, her cheeks would have been flushed red, he could tell.
“I’m going to find out eventually, Cara.” Josh reached out and grabbed Cara around the top of her arm.
“Oh, you will one day,” she replied with a knowing smile. “I’m sure of that.”
She kissed him then. It was a long and lingering kiss, and the deeper he was dragged into it, the less attention he paid to keeping his hand grasped around her arm. He was pulled in by the tantalising glimpse of real depth and emotion. He’d just found out he could fuck a girl and suck her without any real connection, but enjoying a long, involved kiss with a mate, made emotions come into play.
She pulled away suddenly and ran a few steps. Her fingers pushed against her lips and she looked confused. As if she realised Josh was watching, she pressed her fingertips to her lips and blew him a kiss.
“Why do you always rush off like this?” he yelled as she skipped away with a giggle. “I like to keep you guessing,” she said and turned to blow him another kiss. “I’ll see
you again soon, my pet. Take care.”
