Chapter Twenty-Four

The sound of crackling embers and melting snow with the hiss of evaporating venom was all that could be heard. Sabel turned her eyes back onto the remaining vampire, she was going to kill him but first she had some questions.

“I’m curious, why follow the nomad?” She asked, she knew James and she knew that he wouldn’t really hunt a vampire that took his game but then again this was a long time ago. “Was your victim special? Did she smell wonderful? A gift developed in her early? I know it wasn’t his singer.”

Laurent flinched. “I don’t know; I am innocent!”

Garrett watched as Sabel stalked forward and lifted the vampire off the ground. It was impressive seeming he was taller than she was by a few inches. “You better tell her, she doesn’t seem to mind about killing ‘innocents’. And you have seen how she handles those that aren’t.”

“I do not know!” He begged his eyes bugged as he flailed the best he could still wrapped around whatever kept him mobilized.

The sound of footsteps set Sabel on edge, her hand clenching tightly around the vampires neck tight enough to cause it to crack while snapping her head around to the direction she heard them coming from. She could tell there were five of them; one set heavier than the others but god damn it why can’t people stay the fuck off her land.

A growl slipped past her lips sending the birds and animals nearby scattering, it was a growl that made both Garrett and Laurent shiver and the incoming vampires to hesitate for a split second and speed up.

“Who else was with you?” She demanded to the vampire within her grasp.

“No-No-one! It was just — us.” Laurent gasped out before breathing in sharply as he crumpled to the ground. He didn’t need to breathe but it helped his throat flex and shift the crushed muscle and bones.

Garrett moved to stand slightly in front of the woman who saved him and eradicated the nomads that hunted him, he couldn’t sense who was coming but he had a hint and he hoped that it was wrong. With the growls that were steadily leaving Sabel’s lips and the viciousness she showed the nomad’s leader and his mate, he didn’t know what she would do to the others.
