“Do you believe in the supernatural, sweet one?” Dex asked, interrupting her question.
Callie picked up her cup of tea, took a sip, and sighed before placing it back on the table.
“I don’t know. I’ve never really thought about it. Why?”
“Would you believe me if I told you vampires exist?” Vlad asked.
Callie smiled and then chuckled. “Um, sure if you want me to.” She stopped laughing, and the smile left her face when she met his serious gaze. She glanced over at Dex before meeting his eyes once more. “Do you?”
“Yes,” Vlad replied. “I also believe in wizards and witches.”
“Um,” Callie licked her lips her gaze going back and forth between them. “O–Okay.”
She shifted on the sofa, about to push to her feet, but Vlad sat beside her and placed his hand on her shoulder.
“Callie, I would never lie to you, but I understand that you would have difficulty believing such things.”
“Ya think?” she said facetiously.
Vlad nodded at Dex. His friend rose to his feet and moved to the other side of the coffee table. Far enough away from Callie that she hopefully wouldn’t be frightened but close enough to keep her attention. He watched her face as Dex drew on the energy in the room and the palm of his hand filled with a ball of fire and light. Callie’s long brunette hair stirred in the slight breeze, and as she stared at Dexter, her mouth dropped open. The beat of her heart sped up until it was racing inside her chest and she was panting for breath.
“Oh. My. God,” she whispered in a hoarse voice between gasping pants.
Dex clapped his hands together, and the ball of fire and energy disappeared. His blood brother then disintegrated his human body until he was as insubstantial as the dust particles floating in the air. He hovered in the air for a few moments before his body started to reform until he was once more a solid being.
Vlad reached over and lifted Callie into his lap. He stroked a hand over her hair and back as she hyperventilated. Her face pale, beads of sweat on her brow and upper lip.
“Breathe, baby. You’re safe with us. We would never hurt you, Callie.” Vlad pushed further into her mind and pushed calmness toward her and was pleased when her panting grew less and her heart rate began to slow. He loved having her in his arms, on his lap. The heat of her body was amazing and all he wanted to do was strip them both naked and sink his hard throbbing cock into her wet heat, but he didn’t. He stayed still, his only movement his hand stroking over her head and down her long thick braid. Finally she stirred in his arms and Dex cautiously walked over and sat beside them, taking her hand in one of his.
“What are you?” Callie whispered and she pushed into a more upright position.
“We are vampires, Callie,” Vlad said in a calm, soothing voice. How he managed that when inside his guts were twisting in knots he had no idea, but he couldn’t show her how scared he was that she would rush to the door and leave them, never to see her again. That wasn’t acceptable to either of them. Callie Morgan was their salvation. Salvation from a long lonely existence. Not winning her over was unacceptable. It would be so easy to use their voices and minds to control her into believing and accepting them for who they were, but she was their mate and needed to accede to being with them of her own free will.
“We exist on blood but we aren’t killers. We have never drained a human dry when we feed. We have been on this Earth for hundreds of years, living a long lonely life. You are our redemption, baby. You are our mate.”
“No.” Callie tugged her hand, trying to get free from Dex’s hold but he didn’t release her. Instead, Dex gently gripped her chin and turned her head until she was looking into his eyes.
“We knew the moment we saw you on the street last night that you were ours. Your scent called to us. Your inner beauty radiated out from within. We want to be with you mate.” Dex brought her hand to his mouth and kissed the back of it.
Callie shivered and gasped, before closing her eyes and inhaling deeply. “This can’t be real.”
“You don’t believe us?” Vlad asked, his temper coming to the surface but he pushed it back down. How could she refute what they had told her, shown her? Surely she couldn’t deny what she had seen with her own eyes?
“I–I don’t know what to believe.” Callie met his gaze.
He opened his mouth and let his fangs slide down. This time when she shivered, it wasn’t with desire but with fear. He retracted his fangs and gently cupped her cheek. “I have already told you that you are safe with us. You are our mate and under our protection. We would give our lives to keep you safe.”
“How can…How can any of this be real?”
“Vampires have existed from the beginning of time, honey.” Dex kissed the tips of her fingers. “Of course we have kept our existence hidden. Human’s fear about which they do not understand. If they knew we walked this earth we would be hunted and destroyed, wiped out, become extinct. Revealing our presence is not an option. The continuation of our species is dependent on secrecy.”
“This is too much. I don’t understand…any of it.”
“What is there to understand, Callie?” Vlad asked. “You can’t refuse to believe when what we have shown you is true. You know in your heart that we are real. I can feel that you believe what we’ve said.”
“What do you mean that you can feel…”
Dexter groaned and moved his mouth away from her neck, but then he tugged at her shirt. Buttons went flying every which way but she didn’t care. His fingers flicked at the front clasp of her bra, her breasts spilled free, and his hand covered her completely.
Callie whimpered with delight at having her voluptuous globe engulfed in his big, warm manly hand. She looked down to see that the skin of his hand looked so tanned against the white flesh of her creamy breast. As he kneaded and molded her flesh in his, he once more lowered his head and kissed her. And what a kiss it was. His mouth dominated hers from the get-go and she could only follow where he led.
His tongue thrust and glided, his teeth nibbled and nipped, as his hand shifted from around her breast and plucked and pinched at her hard aching nipple. And the cry that left her mouth was muffled by his when Vlad’s mouth joined in the sexual fray. The heat and moisture of his wet mouth and hot tongue on her other nipple had her right on the precipice once more.
Hands tugged at her skirt, and she unconsciously lifted her hips to help them get the encumbering material off of her. Cool air wafted over her legs, making her shiver at the contrast in temperature, but when Dex broke the kiss she groaned in protest.
“Let’s make you more comfortable, baby.” Vlad’s deep voice sent another bout of paroxysms of surging through her body, and her pussy clenched with need, weeping more of her juices.
When she felt Dex lifting her and walking, she wanted to open her eyes and see where he was taking her, but they were so heavy from her passion-induced haze she just couldn’t seem to manage to pry them open. Not that she really cared where they were taking her. All that mattered was that they relieve the burning ache deep inside her cunt and womb.
She sighed as her back landed on something soft and fluffy, and she felt the heat of the fire radiating over her skin and knew they had laid her on the floor on the thick rug next to the fireplace.
They came down on either side of her, still fully clothed, but she couldn’t refute the hunger, the desire she saw in their eyes as they looked her body over from the top of her head to the tips of her toes.
“You are so fucking gorgeous and sexy,” Vlad said before leaning over and kissing her on the belly. He placed his hand on her lower abs and brushed his fingers back and forth over her skin, causing her muscles to jump as she reached up for more.
He shifted around until he was near her feet and clasped her ankle, picking her leg up from the floor. “God but you’re tiny. I can’t believe how small your feet are.” And then he surprised her by kissing the arch of her foot.
Callie didn’t even remember when she’d lost her shoes or where they were, not that it was important right now. The only thing she could focus on was the lap of Vlad’s tongue on her toes, and then he sucked the two smaller ones into his mouth. Electric pulses raced up her leg and right into her pussy, making her clench and leak even more. She gasped and moaned as he worked his way up the inside of her leg until he was nearly at her pussy, but to her frustration he switched to the inside of her other leg and worked his way back down.
She mewled as Dex massaged and squeezed both her breasts, and then he lapped and laved over both peaks alternately. She didn’t even have to lift her hips when she felt her panties being pulled over her hips. Somehow they just slid right off until she was completely naked.
Vlad skimmed his hands up the inside of her lower legs, and when he got to her knees he pushed them open, gently but with an insistence she couldn’t deny even if she was a little uncomfortable at exposing herself for the very first time in her life.
She held her breath when he leaned down close to her wet, aching pussy and inhaled deeply. More heat crept up into her cheeks, and she hoped they weren’t as red as they felt. His eyes traveled up the length of her body until she felt pinned under that hot hungry gaze, and then while she was watching him he lowered his head and swiped his tongue through her drenched folds.
Callie cried out at the first contact of his warm damp tongue on her cunt and her lids lowered to half-mast as her breathing and heart rate increased.
She’d never felt anything so exquisite in her life and wondered if she could go insane from experiencing so much. It was almost too much to bear, but she needed, wanted more. His tongue stabbed into her wet entrance, and he groaned as if he enjoyed the taste of her body’s desire.
She was on fire. Her blood was so hot she felt like she was about to go up in flames. She was breathing so fast, panting heavily, but couldn’t seem to fill her lungs with enough air. His tongue withdrew from her hole and then skidded up once more until the tip of it was flickering back and forth over her clit. Callie moaned and couldn’t prevent her hips from bowing up into his touch, seeking more of the heaven he was bestowing on her.
But then the delight increased even more when the tip of one of his fingers pushed into her cunt. The cry that left her mouth was subdued when Dexter covered her mouth with his and kissed her rapaciously.
Even though she tried to quell the pleasure traversing deep within her body, she didn’t stand a chance.
