allowing Harmony to feed from my wrist just enough to give her some
strength, I stepped onto the heater/AC unit. I eased out the hospital
window and offered her my hand. She hopped up and moved onto the
ledge beside me.
“I’m gonna put my arm
around you, and on three, we’re gonna jump.”
With my right arm securely
wrapped around her waist, I said, “One. Two. Three.”
When I said, “Three,”
she said, “Wait!”
“What? We have to get
“Do you wanna go back in
there and die?”
“Then, jump. One. Two.
That time, I leaped.
She hesitated, but I took her with me. To her surprise, we landed on
our feet. It didn’t feel good, but in a matter of a couple of
seconds, we were up and running to my car. We all hopped in, and I
“I don’t know why you
did that, but thank you. I don’t think I would’ve made it more
than another night or two.”
Melanie turned around and
looked at her and then at me.
“Cam, why didn’t you get

when I woke up in the morgue. They just put me in this thing after

“I think so. Why’d you
I said, “We had to. We
have to teach you how to survive. You’re our responsibility.”
Melanie said, “Because we
“Cam’s humanity was off,
so he was on a killing spree.”
I said, “I’m sorry about
that. Never turn it off. No matter how much you want to, just don’t.”
“I don’t even know what
you’re talking about.”
“Anyway, Cam drained you.
I showed up and made him stop and gave you my blood, but I guess you
because you turned.”
“What’s your name?”
“Oh, I’m Melanie. This
“I’m Harmony. You’re
the guy who attacked me?”
“Yeah. I’m really sorry.
Like she said, I had flipped my switch, so I had no emotions. I
didn’t care about anything. Even Melanie. But I’m back now, and
we’re gonna take care of you. We’ll show you what to do and how
to do it.”
“I know what to do. Drink
blood. And I was doing a pretty good job of it
until the cops found me and shot me.”
“If you were doing a good
job of it, you wouldn’t have been caught. We’ll teach you how to
hunt and how to feed without killing. It’s not easy, especially at
first, but you’ll learn.”
“Yeah, I’m still working
on my self-control around humans, too.”
“You’re a vampire?”
“Are you new?”
“Yeah. But I wanted Cam to
turn me. I begged him to.”
“I didn’t wanna lose
him. And I didn’t want him to lose me, either.”
“So y’all are together?”
“Yeah. We’re getting
married in June.”
I looked in the rearview
mirror and saw what I perceived to be disappointment
in her expression. That was unsettling. If she was attracted to me,
things could get dicey. I was hoping Melanie didn’t pick up on it.
“Thanks! We’re excited
about it. My bridesmaids’ dresses are gorgeous! They’re blood
“Are they vampires, too?”
“Ha! No. They’re all
“Then, how are you gonna
be around ‘em if you’re still having trouble controlling
yourself? Aren’t you gonna wanna bite ‘em?”
“Well, we always wanna
bite ‘em. We just have to learn to fight it. I think breathing
through it is the key. Like women in labor, ya know? They breathe
through the pain, and we breathe through the… urge
to bite. And when we do feed on humans, we have to control the
impulse to kill.”
“Yeah. I don’t know
about that. I really wanna
kill. I hate it, but I feel driven to do it. Am I terrible? Will that
I said, “You’re not
terrible. And you’ll always want to. But that’s something you’ll
learn to manage. You can do it.”
“How long have you been a
“I was turned in 1910.”
“That’s amazing. So, I
can live a hundred years, too?”
“Hundreds. Plural. You
just have to be careful.”
Melanie said, “You won’t
age or get sick, but you can be killed. You know about the sunlight,
“I wasn’t sure. In
they can go out when it’s cloudy, so….”
“Don’t even think about
it. I mean, even if that were true, and I’m not saying it is, what
happens if there’s a break in the clouds? You burst into flames,
right? Not worth the risk.”
“What about the stake
“Yes. A wooden stake in
the heart, and it’s
curtains. And ripping your heart out. What else, Cam?”
“Taking your head off.”
“Oh, yeah. That, too. And
fire, of course.”
I said, “We’re really
not immortal. We can live a long time, but we can die, and
eventually, we do.”
“What about werewolf
bites?” Harmony asked. Melanie and I both looked at each other and
chuckled. “What is it?”
“I’m sorry,” I said.
“We shouldn’t have laughed. It’s just that we don’t believe
“We’re vampires, and
you’re laughing at me for asking about werewolves?” she said with
Melanie and I chuckled a
bit, as well, at the absurdity of our own reality.
I pulled into the garage,
and we all climbed out. Instead of my side, where she had been
sitting, Harmony chose to crawl over and exit on Melanie’s side of
the car. I knew she was embarrassed about being in that hospital
gown, so I didn’t mention it.
“Come on, Harmony. You’re
a little taller, but otherwise, you look about my size. I think you
can wear some of my clothes.”
“Thanks,” she said,
holding the two sides of the light blue cotton garment together.
Stepping ahead of them, I
opened the door and walked inside. I immediately turned back around,
as I locked it, giving Melanie enough time to get Harmony downstairs.
After pouring myself a short
glass full of Jack, I kicked back in my recliner and turned on the
As the beginning credits
began, with that bizarre theme song, I thought about how good it was
to be home, have Melanie back, and even have our new vampire there.
I wasn’t kidding myself. I
was sure that things weren’t going to be easy, but after all that
Melanie and I had been through lately, things seemed to be looking
Life—or death, if you
will—was relatively good.
At least, for the moment.
‘moment’ was about as long as the good life lasted. Okay, it was
a bit longer, but not by much.
When Harmony was dressed in
some of Melanie’s shorts and a t-shirt, the two came upstairs.
Melanie sat with me on the couch, and Harmony settled into my
recliner. They drank wine, while I continued to sip on my Jack
“How old are you,
Harmony?” Melanie asked.
“Twenty-three. What about
“I’m 26, and Cam is 29.”
“Well, actually, I’m 134
years old. I was 29 when I became a vampire.”
“You told me you were
turned in 1910, right?”
Melanie said, “Have you
talked to your family since all this happened?”
“They let me call home
once. I talked to Mom and Dad, but that’s it. They wouldn’t let
them see me at the hospital. Oh, I need to call and let them know I’m
I said, “You can’t. The
police will be expecting you to. They’re probably with your parents
now, waiting for you to either show up or call. Even if they aren’t
there, the phones will be tapped. That would lead them right to
you... and us.”
“This sucks, Cam!”
“I know. I’m really
“I am, too, Harmony. It’s
just as much my fault as his.”
“Why is that? He’s the
one who killed me, right? How is that your fault?”
“You were still barely
alive when I got there. I gave you my blood to try to heal you,
“Then I fed on you, too.
And I’m the one who caused Cam to turn off his humanity. I was so
upset about what happened when Michael tried to set Cam up with his
ex that I tried to punish him. And I went way too far with it. I hurt
him more than he could stand, and that’s why he shut it off.”
“No, it’s on Michael.
None of that would’ve happened if he hadn’t done what he did,
which is why he deserves to die.”
“I know, I know. Harmony,
do... I mean did
you have a boyfriend?”
“We broke up the night
before y’all attacked me.”
Simultaneously, Melanie and
I said, “Sorry.”
“Y’all, just stop saying
that. It’s getting old, and it’s not gonna change anything. It is
what it is. I know you feel bad about it.”
And we did.
After another couple of
hours of getting to know each other, the sun began to rise.
“Harmony, I have Melanie’s
old bed set up in the other room downstairs. A lot of her junk is in
there, but we’ll get it cleaned up tomorrow night.”
“You can go on to bed if
you feel like it. Or you can shower. Everything you’ll need is in
“Yeah, you can use my
stuff,” Melanie said.
When Harmony went into the
bathroom downstairs and turned on the shower, Melanie said, “Why’d
you tell her to sleep down there? She’s gonna hear every move we
“Do you trust her up here?
She could easily slip out and go on another killing spree. Down
there, she’ll have to go through our room to get to the stairs.”
“I just don’t like the
idea of her being that close.”
“I don’t, either. But we
can’t trust her to stay inside. It has to be this way.”
“I think she has a thing
for you, Cam.”
“No, she doesn’t. She’s
just horny. She’s a vampire. And a new one, at that. It’s not
about me. I just happen to have a cock.”
“Yeah. And she wants it.”
“Again, it has nothing to
do with me. She’d fuck anything with a cock right about now.”
“I know. That scares me.
She needs to get laid big time. I could give her my vibrator. That’s
a pretty sad substitute for a guy, but I guess it’s better than
As Melanie went to offer
Harmony her little pink friend, I stayed on the couch, feet up. I
grabbed the remote and turned on the TV, thinking about the way
Melanie was able to empathize with Harmony, even though she felt
threatened by her. It was one of the many reasons I loved her.
~~~ Melanie ~~~
about awkward! Geez. But I was sick of the way she was looking at my
man, so I had to do something.
Harmony was still in the
bathroom. I could smell my cucumber-melon lotion the minute she
opened the bottle. I went over to the nightstand and took out my
What the hell am I gonna
say to her?
“You what?” she asked,
opening the door.
She was naked and didn’t
try to hide it from me. I was like, Whoa!
I knew she was pretty, but her body was amazing. I got kind of tingly
there, and I couldn’t help wondering what it would be like to do a
three-way with her and Cam. Weird, I know, as possessive as I am, but
it was a really hot thought.
“Uh.” My mind was still
jumbled from that mini-fantasy, so I had a little trouble putting my
words together. “I just thought you might wanna use this. It’s
embarrassing, but I know how you feel, so.... If you don’t want it,
that’s fine, too.”
“Thanks,” she said,
taking it from me. “Not exactly what I’m horny for, but it’s
better than nothing.”
I didn’t tell her that was
what I had just told Cam.
“D’ya need anything
“No, I’m fine. Thanks.
“The sheets are clean. I
washed ‘em when we moved the bed in. Not sure why. I never expected
we’d be having a sleepover.”
“Oh, and there’s another
fan in there, too, if you wanna block out some of the sound.”
“Okay. Thanks again.”
Cam was right about her
needing to be downstairs, so we could keep an eye on her. I knew
that, but at the same time, I was thinking she would be listening
when we had sex. She was going to get off on it, and I didn’t like
the idea of that, because it would make her want Cam even more. I
mean, I can’t be quiet. When he’s playing my body the way he
does, I get totally lost in the moment. He drives me crazy!
I was dreading hearing the
buzz of my vibrator while Cam and I were going at it. But what’re
ya gonna do, right?
~~~ Cam ~~~
with a horny vampire two doors down—not advisable.
We tried our best to keep it
quiet, which seriously put a damper on our usual routine, but we
didn’t want to make the circumstances any more difficult for
The following night, we
attempted to influence Harmony to be content in feeding on Melanie,
but she was stir-crazy, after being cuffed to that hospital bed for
so long. We both empathized with her, so we decided to take her out
to hunt, figuring that the sooner we got her used to it, the sooner
she could be on her own. And Melanie still needed to work on her
control, so I thought the outing would also work to her advantage.
Though in theory, it seemed
like a good idea, having the two of them under my care while being
around humans was not something I was looking forward to.
We couldn’t think of a
good plan, so we got into my car and headed out, hoping an
opportunity would present itself. As I drove along, we smelled the
distinct aroma of meat on a grill.
“Mmmm… I wanna steak,”
“Ha! You won’t ever have
another one of those!” Melanie said. “I tried to eat some stew
back around the holidays. It was yummy going down, but not so much
when it came back up.”
“Yeah, they tried to feed
me at the hospital, but I kept getting sick.”
I said, “People cooking
out. It might be a party, but I’m sure we could find a couple
grilling in their back yard somewhere.”
“That’s a great idea,
Cam. Harmony, you just watch us, and you’ll see how it’s done.”
Melanie, the expert hunter.
I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing.
As the plan developed in my
mind, I realized we should’ve taken Melanie’s car. The rumble of
the engine in a Mustang is distinct, and it gets attention. Not to
mention the look of it, especially a red one like mine. Not exactly
It turned out that finding a
cookout wasn’t difficult. The hard part was discovering one where
we could park without causing people to take notice. After another
half hour or so of searching, we happened upon a neighborhood that
was in close proximity to a strip mall. After parking behind one of
the shops, we got out and followed the aroma.
The first scene we found was
a group of five adults. We could’ve taken them easily, but it
would’ve been messy, and I don’t like messy. On we went,
following that scent that had our mouths watering.
It didn’t take us long to
find another cookout. A young man and woman in a large kidney-shaped
pool, fooling around, while their meat sizzled over an open fire pit,
came into view.
As we approached the back
yard, Melanie said, “Pay attention, Harmony. You have to maintain
Once more, I stifled a
Before they even knew we
were there, Harmony flew through the air, landing on top of the girl,
taking her under the water, as she flailed about in a feeble attempt
to escape the onslaught. A second later, like a choreographed number,
Melanie grabbed the guy and latched onto his neck, as his screams
pierced my eardrums, while he tugged on her hair and tried to push
In the midst of all the
mayhem, I yelled, to no avail, “Dammit, come on! Stop it!”
They had gone from stealthy
predators, stalking their prey, to newbie vampires in a feeding
free-for-all in an instant. It was utter pandemonium.
After grabbing Melanie,
pulling her away from the guy’s throat and shoving her onto the
grass a few feet away, I jumped into the pool and yanked Harmony and
her dinner up to the surface. I then tossed Harmony over near where
Melanie was sitting, wiping her mouth. I laid the woman on the edge
of the pool and pushed her hair back off her face. All the while, the
man was shrieking in horror.
Grasping him by the
shoulders, staring into his eyes, I said, “Listen to me. You’re
okay. Calm down and drink my blood. It’ll help you heal.”
I opened my veins and held
my arm out to him, while I glanced around just in time to see that
the girls were back on the woman, slurping down her life force.
“What the hell are you
doing? Stop it!” I yelled, shoving them away, first Harmony and
After biting into my other
wrist, I used it to inch her mouth open, allowing my blood to flow
into her. In a few seconds, she began to cough, spewing red water all
over her face and neck and the concrete around her.
“You’ve had enough,” I
told the man. “I’m sorry about this. Your wife will be fine.”
Pulling away from him, I
helped the woman sit up, while Harmony lapped at the concrete, trying
to take in my blood that was in the water that her victim had coughed
“She’s not my wife. I
just met her.”
“Oh. Well, whatever. She’s
okay. When we leave, you won’t remember anything about what
happened here. You won’t have any memory of seeing us.”
“What’s going on?”
Looking into the eyes of the
traumatized female, I said, “You’re all right. When we leave, you
won’t remember ever seeing us. You won’t know what occurred here
Glancing around, I saw
Melanie sitting there, head down, humiliated, while she licked the
red liquid off her arms. I could almost hear the thoughts going
through her head, as she remembered how cocky she was, telling
just watch us, and you’ll see how it’s done.”
I had to laugh.
“What?” she asked, her
eyebrows bunched together in annoyance.
“Come on, girls,” I
said, as Melanie stood. Harmony lifted her head from the concrete and
crawled to her feet. “Let’s get the hell outta here, before you
two go back to Crazy Town.”
“Yeah, you really showed
me how to hunt, Melanie. Thanks for that.”
“Bitch, you better shut
the fuck up! I’ll kick your—”
“Hey! Both of you, simmer
down. The last thing we need is for the two of you to tie up. We have
to put this scene in the rearview and try to forget about it.”
“Yeah. Sorry,” Harmony
The girls got back into the
pool and washed the blood away, and then we went into the house,
found some towels, dried off as best we could, and made our escape.
That little outing made
cat-herding look easy. I shake my head and chuckle every time it
comes to mind. I don’t know what I was thinking.
As we ran at preternatural
speed away from the scene of that debacle, I ordered them not to slow
down until we reached my car, while hoping and praying they didn’t
smell blood along the way.
When we were seated inside,
I looked at them, and we all burst into fits of laughter. I truly
wish I could paint a better picture for you with words, but there
just are none that could accurately depict the mayhem that was the
While it was humorous, it
was also disturbing and worrisome. I attempted to focus on the fact
that it was Harmony’s first lesson, and she would improve. At
least, I hoped she would.
Clearly, being with the
newbie had caused Melanie to regress dramatically. It appeared that
with both of them, I was back to square one, which was rather
discouraging, considering I had no idea how to get to the next
proverbial square, especially with them together. But for the moment,
they were fed, and that was my main concern.
As I drove us home, I had an
alternative station playing.
by Stateless came on, Melanie said, “Aaaww... Harmony, that’s one
of the songs we played the night Cam turned me. It was so special.”
“Yeah. It was so romantic.
“Uh, Melanie... I don’t
think we need to tell her about that.”
“Oh. Yeah. Sorry.”
“Never mind,” I said.
“That’s just rude,”
I popped back at her with,
“Do you really wanna hear about our fucking mind-shattering,
off-the-charts, phenomenal lovemaking? I was trying to spare you
that, because I know you’re horny as hell, and we can’t help you
with that, but if you insist....”
“No. That’s okay.”
After a short pause, she said, “About that.... You wouldn’t
happen to have a good-looking vampire friend I could hang with, would
ya? Actually, at this point, looks aren’t all that important. I’d
settle for the low side of average. As long as he has a dick, I’m
Glancing in the rearview
mirror, I could see that her eyes were on me.
“Not around here. Sorry.”
“Oh, she would be perfect
“How do you know?” I
asked, shocked that she would think such a thing.
“Well, she’s pretty...
and she has a good body. And she kinda has an attitude.”
“Sounds like somebody else
I know,” I said, smirking.
“Ha! Thanks. Sort of.”
“Who’re y’all talking
“A guy Cam met right after
he was turned. He taught him how to hunt and stuff. They were friends
“Is he hot?”
My eyes shot over to
Melanie’s, and she was grinning at me.
“He’s not as hot as Cam,
but he’s not hard to look at. I think you’d like him.”
“Wait. They were friends
“He compelled Melanie to
fuck him, and then he erased her memory of it. Then he tried to set
me up with my ex. He’s the reason I shut off my humanity, which was
why you were turned. And if I ever see him again, I’m gonna rip his
heart out. Fucking asshole.”
“Fuck you, asshole!”
“No!” I said with a
chuckle. “I didn’t mean you. I meant he’s
a fucking asshole.”
“Oh. Sorry,” she said,
“We need to hook them up,
“Did you not hear what I
said? I’m gonna kill his sorry ass!”
“Oh, get a grip. We
survived, and we’re good. Knowing that is enough punishment for
“What does that mean?”
“He’s fixated on
“So, he’s in love with
you, too? Not sure I wanna be with a guy who’s hung up on somebody
“What difference does it
make? He can teach you to hunt, you can feed on him, you can fuck
him.... And Cam and I can get back to normal at our house.”
“Well, I hate to intrude
on y’all, but I didn’t exactly have a choice in the matter.”
“No, it’s not that. It’s
just that... we’re not used to having company. I didn’t mean for
it to sound rude. It’s not your fault.”
“Hell, no, it’s not! I
was just parked on the side of the road, checking my tires, when—”
“Harmony, I’m sorry,”
I said. “There’s no excuse for what I did to you. None. But if
you’re ever tempted to turn off your humanity, remember what I did
to you. I would’ve never done anything like that if my emotions
“I still don’t
understand what that means, but... whatever. Like you said, you made

~~~ Melanie ~~~
I went off the deep end. Full feeding frenzy, right there in front of
Harmony. Hell, I tore into that woman with
Cam pulled her out of the water! I don’t know what came over me. It
was like we were competing for the last drops of blood on Earth. It
Oh, God, I was so
embarrassed! It would’ve been bad enough if I hadn’t said those
things to her, like I was some badass with mad hunting skills. Yeah,
I really showed her how it was done, didn’t I? I felt like crawling
Enough of that... forever!
The more I thought about
Harmony and Michael together, the more it made sense. I knew they
would be the perfect couple, but Cam was determined to kill him. I
was sure that with my powers of persuasion, I would be able to get
him to see things from my point of view. That was my plan, anyway.
~~~ Cam ~~~
we got back to my house, we all went in and put on some dry clothes
and then sat down in the living room. It was fairly obvious that we
were all reflecting on the hunting fiasco, as the three of us were
staring off into space.
Melanie broke the silence,
saying, “I don’t know why I put these clothes on. I can feel the
chlorine on my skin. I’m gonna go take a shower.”
“Wanna join me?”
“I think I’m gonna have
She gave me a kiss, and then
I watched her stand and walk away. I knew she’d turn around to see
if I was looking, so I kept my eyes on her ass. Just as she was about
to go into the stairwell, she glanced back at me with a wink and a
I wanted to go down and
shower with Melanie, but I didn’t trust Harmony not to leave and
attack the neighbors. After grabbing the remote, I turned on the TV
and started up another episode of Dexter.
“Don’t you ever watch
“I like this show. I only
have another season and a half left. D’you want me to put something
“No, it’s okay. I was
just picking at you.”
I stood, and as I walked
into the kitchen, I said, “I’m gonna get some Jack. D’you want
“Yeah. I do.”
“Whatta ya want? Melanie
Before I could finish my
sentence, I heard a swish and detected Harmony’s scent getting
stronger. In the blink of an eye, she was behind me, naked. Her arms
were wrapped around me, with her hands on my cock and her fangs in my
My first thought was
Melanie. I knew she would smell my blood and immediately recognize
I spun around, dislodging
her teeth and causing her to lose her grip on my growing erection. I
pushed her away from me, but she rushed back with a vengeance.
Just as she grasped my
shoulders and was going for my throat, Melanie appeared, clad only in
a towel. As I was shoving Harmony, Melanie took hold of her and threw
her against the refrigerator, making a huge dent in it, as her
terrycloth wrap fell.
“You, fucking slut!”
Harmony bounced off the
fridge and fell to the floor, and Melanie was on her before she
“Melanie, come on!” I
I bent over, put my arms
underneath her, and tried to lift her off the screaming baby vamp.
When I raised Melanie’s body, Harmony shrieked even louder, as her
head rose off the floor. She then dropped, as the chunk of her throat
that was in Melanie’s mouth ripped away. Melanie spat it out,
screaming and growling, as blood squirted all over the walls,
cabinets, appliances, floor, and even the ceiling, before Harmony’s
body healed itself enough to stop the massive hemorrhage.
Melanie was fighting to free
herself from my grip, as I dragged her away. Harmony tried to stand
but lost her balance, when she slipped on the blood. Her feet flew
out from under her, and she landed on her back with a splat
and a loud grunt.
“Baby, it’s okay,” I
said, as I took her into the upstairs bathroom.
“The fuck, it is!”
I closed the door and turned
on the water in the shower.
“Get in there and wash up.
Looks like I’m gonna be busy cleaning the kitchen for a while.”
“You’re not going
anywhere near her again without me right beside you! Fucking cunt!”
I took off my clothes and
joined Melanie in the shower. We held each other like we’d been
apart for years.
“You know I love you,
babydoll. More than I love my own life. I don’t want anyone but
you. Only you.”
“I’m so afraid of losing
“You won’t ever lose me.
I belong to you. I’m yours... forever. You know that, don’t you?”
“Yeah. I do. And I love
you so much.”
“I love you, baby.”
With her arms encircling my
neck, she pulled herself up and wrapped her legs around my waist.
Leaning against the wall to steady myself, I lifted her enough for
the head of my cock to find its home. When it slid inside her, we
both groaned. As she bounced on me, we quickly neared orgasm. Less
than a minute later, we both erupted.
Melanie’s climactic scream
and my groan of ecstasy were interrupted by the sound of Harmony’s
sobs. As Melanie put her feet down onto the tub, our eyes met. I
could see from her expression that she was disturbed by the agonizing
cries of our progeny, due to her overwhelming need for sex and blood.
We both knew it well.
“Poor Harmony,” she
“Poor Harmony? You just
tried to kill her!”
“I was in a jealous rage.
You, of all people, should know what that feels like.”
“No denying that. I
“She’s miserable, Cam.
Just listen to her.” We paused for a few seconds, as her wailing
assaulted our ears, while tears appeared in Melanie’s eyes. “I
can only imagine how I’d feel if I didn’t have you. I’d be just
like her... a mess.”
“Yep. An insatiable mess,”
I said, taking her into my arms. “You’re so special, Melanie.”
“Special? Whatta ya mean?”
“I love the way you care
so much about other people—even when you see them as adversaries.”
“I can’t help it. I’ve
always been like that. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t.”
“Don’t ever change,
Melanie. It’s part of who you are, and I love that about you.”
“Good. ‘Cause short of
flipping my humanity switch, I don’t know how.”
“Yeah, and we both know
what a nightmare that would be.”
“Right. Not an option.
We stepped out of the tub,
dried off, and then went downstairs and got dressed. The bedroom door
was closed, so Melanie knocked on it.
“Harmony? Can we come in?”
Melanie and I glanced at
each other, as we heard Harmony approaching, sniffling.
After unlocking the door,
she opened it and said, “Y’all, I’m so sorry! I’m soooooo
sorry! I’m just crazy! I’ve lost my mind! I—”
“I’m sorry I attacked
you like that, Harmony. I kinda went crazy, too.”
Melanie took Harmony into
her arms, and they hugged for several seconds. Then we walked in, and
the two girls sat on the bed, as I took a seat in the chair by the
“Melanie, you had every
right to do what you did. I would’ve done exactly the same thing if
I were you. I feel awful about it.”
“I was just telling Cam
that I know I’d be in the same condition if I didn’t have him.
I’d go after the first guy I saw, and for you, that’s Cam. Of
course, that doesn’t make it okay, but I get it.”
“No, it doesn’t. Please
don’t hate me, Melanie. I don’t know what I’d do without you. I
guess I’d die.”
“We don’t hate you,
Harmony. It’s our fault that you’re going through this.”
Melanie looked at me as if
she wanted me to confirm her statement.
“That’s true. If I
hadn’t gone off the rails and attacked you, you’d be living a
normal human life. You wouldn’t even know us.”
“Y’all, I don’t know
what to do. I’m trying not to go out and find somebody, because if
I do, I’ll drain him. And I’ll either be killed or locked up. I
“We have to help her,
“I know. We’ll figure
“No, I mean right now.
Look at her.”
With no idea of what Melanie
was getting at, I said, “Yeah?”
~~~ Cam ~~~
sitting with her heel pressed against her crotch, rocking back and
forth on it. When she realized what Melanie was talking about, she
shifted and brought her knees up in front of her chest, wrapping her
arms around them.
“She needs a man.”
“And we’ll find her
After a quick glance at
Harmony, her eyes landed on mine. They seemed to be pleading.
“We’ll be right back,”
Grabbing my hand, she led me
upstairs, into the bathroom, and turned on the water.
“What’re you doing?”
“I don’t want her to
hear what we’re saying,” she whispered. “Cam, she needs
“I know. We’re gonna
“No, I mean right
“What’re you talking
“I can’t believe I’m
saying this, but... we have to do something for her. Until we can
find a better solution.”
My eyes went wide, as her
idea dawned on me.
“Are you saying you want
me to be with her? That’s crazy!”
“Not just you.”
“Oh. So, you’re saying
you want a threesome with her?”
“Well... the thought
crossed my mind.”
“Are you sure you wanna go
“Would you be okay with
“I just don’t wanna do
something that could damage our relationship. I’m not sure how much
more it could take, and I can’t lose you.”
“You won’t lose me. Not
unless you betray me. This is my idea, and I would be right there
with you. With both of you. That’s not cheating. And honestly,
after what I put you through with Jay, I deserve to see you with
“That was temporary
insanity... on both our parts. So is this cockamamie proposal. This
is not the solution, babydoll. I appreciate what you’re trying to
do for her, but no. I don’t wanna hurt you.”
“I know it’s crazy. But
again, why is she going through this?”
“Just spit it out,
Melanie. You really want this, don’t you?”
“It’s a win-win. She
gets what she needs, and... I get to do something I wanna do.”
“So, do you wanna just be
with her yourself, or both of us?”
“But what about afterward?
Are you gonna get all weird and insecure, like you were about
“Cam, you don’t ever
have to worry about that anymore. I promise. I screwed up big time
over that. But that’s all in the past. Right now, we have to deal
with the consequences of our actions. Exhibit A,” she said, waving
a hand toward the floor, under which Harmony was waiting.
“Baby, you just ripped a
chunk of her throat out for trying to be with me.”
“That was about betrayal!
She did that behind my back, and she pissed me off! And if she does
that again, I’ll tear her heart out. But this is different.”
“I don’t know.”
As she turned off the water,
I took hold of her by the shoulders and turned her to face me.
“Are you 100 percent sure
“It’s really turning me
on. Is that sick?”
I whispered, “It’s kinky
as hell, but it’s not sick.”
“I know it’s gonna hurt
me afterward, but I wanna do this for her... and for me. When I think
of what she’s going through, I feel so guilty. I just think this’ll
help me get rid of some of that.”
“Okay. But you’re not
gonna flip out and try to kill her again, are you?”
“No. I promise.”
“All right. But for the
record, I’m against it.”
We then went back downstairs
and into Harmony’s room.
“Wow. That really makes me
feel special. I’m a consequence. An exhibit. I guess that’s not
as bad as a monster...
which is actually what I am.”
“You heard that?”
I said, “Harmony, you’re
no more a monster than we are. We’ve both been where you are. We
know how you feel, and that’s why we wanna help you. And we’re
Harmony put her face down
between her knees, and the sobbing resumed.
Melanie reached out to me. I
took her hand, and she pulled me toward her. She began to unbutton my
jeans, and I grabbed her hands. She looked up at me.
“You’re certain that you
wanna do this?”
“She’s suffering. So
yes, I’m sure.”
I let go of her hands, and
she unzipped my pants. Harmony looked up and watched in shock, eyes
open wide, as Melanie tugged at my jeans and boxers. I took over,
pushing them down and stepping out of them, as Melanie slipped off
her own tank top. I tossed my shirt aside, as Harmony’s eyes
focused on my erect cock. She started to lunge for it, but Melanie
moved between us.
“Hold on. Let’s get you
undressed. Cam, get behind her.”
As Harmony tore her clothes
off, I crawled onto the bed.
“Oh, Melanie! Thank you so
much!” she squealed, throwing her arms around her neck.
The three of us were
standing on our knees, as Harmony took Melanie’s mouth over.
Harmony was arching her back, pressing her ass against me. I grabbed
my cock and moved its head down between her legs. When I felt her wet
heat, a surge of blood rushed to my crotch and made me even harder.
As I slid into Harmony’s
juicy pussy, she moaned and whimpered, and after only a few seconds,
she broke the kiss and screamed out her orgasm.
She bit into Melanie’s
throat, as I pounded into her, while my eyes locked onto Melanie’s.
She eased away from Harmony and lay back, as the ravenous baby vamp
went down and began to lick her pussy.
“Don’t stop fucking her,
“No, don’t stop!”
“You, get back to eating
me. Just don’t bite me,” Melanie said with a grin.
She then slid two fingers
into that sweet pussy that I knew so well, causing Melanie to whimper
and whine, while Harmony’s tongue worked on her clit. I could see
by Melanie’s facial expressions that she was getting close, so I
held back with my cock. I’m not sure why, but I wanted us to all
come at once. I watched my babydoll to gauge my performance by what
she was feeling, knowing I could send Harmony easily.
As soon as Melanie’s
whimpers and whines began to get progressively higher in pitch, I
grabbed Harmony’s hips. When Melanie’s sounds turned to shrieks
of pleasure, I hammered that pussy the way it needed to be fucked.
After five hard thrusts, she was also screaming, so I kept giving it
to her, until she began to come down, and then I pulled out and shot
my load onto her ass. Naturally, I wanted to bite her, but the urge
was completely manageable, unlike it had always been with my love.
Harmony collapsed onto her
left side, and I fell to my right, beside Melanie.
“Oh, man! That was
awesome! I needed that so bad, you don’t even know!”
Simultaneously, Melanie and
I said, “Yeah, we do.”
After we stopped laughing,
Melanie whispered, “He’s good with his tongue and fingers, too.”
We both looked at her, wondering if she wanted me to prove it. “Don’t
ya wanna show her?”
“D’ya want me to?”
“Yeah. I want you to fuck
me, while you’re eating her pussy.”
“Get on your back,
She did as she was told, and
then Melanie lay on her back at an angle. That was when I realized
what she wanted. As I went down onto my elbows, with my hands on
Harmony’s hips, Melanie eased into place under me and put my head
between her slippery lips.
As my face descended between
Harmony’s legs, I looked over at Melanie. She had put a pillow
under her head, and she was watching me.
“Eat her while you fuck
me, Cam. I wanna see your tongue on her pussy.”
It had been a long time
since I’d had two women, but I had never experienced anything like
being inside Melanie, while licking the clit of another woman. Having
our eyes locked onto each other’s as I did it made it so intense.
We were pleasing her together.
I thought of what Melanie
was doing for Harmony. Though I could see that she was enjoying it in
that moment, I knew it had to also hurt her. I was sure that after
she came down from the high of her arousal, she would be bombarded
with fear, jealousy, and maybe even some sense of betrayal. It was a
huge sacrifice, and I was proud of her for caring so much for someone
else that she was willing to experience those negative feelings in
order to help a friend... though it wasn’t completely selfless.
Working Harmony’s pussy
with my tongue and my fingers, I picked up the pace, as I fucked
Melanie hard and fast. Harmony began to scream, which seemed to
trigger Melanie’s orgasm, which then set off mine. Melanie latched
onto my neck, and Harmony tried to get to me, but of course, it was
impossible in that position. In her desperation for blood, she bit
into her own wrist. I glanced up just in time to see her fangs
puncture her skin.
“No! Don’t do that!”
She looked at me, but she
couldn’t stop. In a matter of seconds, her hand fell onto her
chest, and her head lay back on the mattress, as her strength waned
to nothing. I removed my fingers from her and eased over onto
As I covered Melanie’s
mouth with mine, our tongues dancing together, she was tasting and
smelling Harmony on me. She moaned, and I knew that she liked it. Her
inner walls were hugging my cock in an undulating motion that caused
it to return to its full rigidity. With Harmony lying unconscious
beside us, I made love to the woman who owned my heart and soul.
“I love you, Melanie.”
“I love you, Cam.”
Lifting her legs and draping
them over my shoulders, I continued to pound into her for another 20
minutes or so, while she moaned and cried out. Then, as her orgasmic
whines turned to screams, her nails flayed my back and my ass.
The second I smelled my
blood, I knew what was coming. I felt Harmony’s fangs sink into my
Though her head was bobbing
up and down with the motion of my hips, as I sent Melanie into orbit,
Harmony was undeterred, refusing to release me. Even after we had
both come down, and I was completely still, those teeth were embedded
in my ass.
“Harmony! Let him go!”
That got no response. “Harmony, seriously! Get your fangs out of
Cam’s ass! I mean it!” Still nothing. “Harmony!”
Melanie had had enough. She
took her right leg off my left shoulder and pushed Harmony off of me
with her foot.
When her mouth was forced
away from me, she ripped my flesh, and I cried out. Finally, she came
to her senses.
“Oh, shit! I’m sorry,
“Melanie, I went crazy
Melanie and I crawled off
the bed and picked up our clothes.
“What the hell happened to
me? Why did I pass out like that?”
“Did we not tell you that
you can’t drink your own blood?” I asked.
“I don’t know. If you
did, I don’t remember it.”
“Yeah, it’ll do that
every time. It takes a while to get your strength back. Not good.”
“Thanks for what we just
did, y’all. Melanie, you’re an angel. I’ll never forget you
doing this for me.”
“It’s okay. But just
remember… only this once. We’re gonna get you some help, but
until then, it’s back to the vibrator.”
“I know. If I ever get
outta my mind again, I’ll just bite myself!”
We all laughed, and Melanie
and I left the room and closed the door. We went into our bathroom
and got into the shower once more.
“Cam, we can’t do that
“I can’t believe we did
it that time.”
She mouthed, “She has to
I mouthed back, “I know.
But we can’t just put her out. You know what would happen, and
without me there to clean up the mess.... It’s too risky.”
“I’m calling Michael,”
she said. “She can go with him.”
“The hell, you are!”
suggest? We’re not gonna be Three’s
vamp style. My generosity only goes so far, ya know.”
“This is a nightmare. All
thanks to Michael. And instead of killing him, which you know he
deserves, you wanna fix him up!”
“Again. Do you have a
better idea? Let him deal with her.”
“What makes you think he
would? He knows I’ll kill him if I see him.”
“You can’t. We need
After our shower, we got
dressed and went to the living room to watch TV. A few minutes into
the show, we heard Harmony coming up the stairs. She sat in my chair,
leaned onto the left arm, and pulled her feet up behind her.
“Okay, so where’s this
Michael guy? D’you think he’d wanna hook up? ‘Cause I seriously
need to get laid again... about 50 times a night... if not more.”
Harmony ran her fingers
through her hair and began to chew on one of her fingernails. Though
Melanie and I had just given her three strong orgasms, she was still
in a bad way, and it wasn’t going to get better without someone to
take care of her sexually. As much as I hated the thought of not
ending Michael, Melanie’s proposal made sense. Something had to be
“I don’t know,”
Melanie said. “But I could call him.”
I looked at her, hating what
she was saying but knowing it was the only solution.
“What’re ya gonna tell
him? I mean, he knows I wanna kill him. He’s not gonna come back
“I know. But maybe I could
meet him somewhere.”
“Cam, he’s afraid of
you! You said yourself that he’s not gonna come back here!”
“D’you know where he is?
Have you heard from him?”
“I don’t know how we’re
gonna work this.”
“Hold on,” said Harmony.
“Are you gonna just dump me off on him? I’m sure he’s really
gonna want that!”
“Cam, you could tell him
that if he’ll do this for us, you won’t hurt him.”
“Yeah, and I’m sure that
won’t sound like I’m setting him up. He’s not stupid enough to
fall for that.”
“If he’ll do it, will
you promise me that you won’t hurt him? If you will, maybe I can
convince him to go along.”
“Come on, Cam. What else
can we do?”
“I don’t have a clue.”
“I feel so loved right
When Harmony said that, I
felt her pain. She didn’t ask for any of the chaos we had brought
into her world. I glanced at Melanie and saw sympathy in her
expression. I didn’t know what to say. I certainly didn’t want to
set Melanie off, so I waited for her to respond.
“We’re not trying to
make you feel bad, Harmony. It’s not your fault. It’s just not
working, with you staying here with us. You know that.”
“So, I’m gonna have to
“Yeah,” Melanie said.
“It’s not safe for you here, anyway.”
hunters all over the place,” I added. “Your story made national
headlines. You’re aware of that, right?”
“And it’s not like you
can go back home. You wouldn’t wanna hurt someone you love... or
Tears welled in her eyes and
poured over her lids. Her pretty face turned red, as she wiped her
cheeks and tried to regain her composure.
“I know. You’re right.
And I’m thankful that you rescued me. Seriously. I’d be totally
dead now if you hadn’t. It’s just so hard. My whole life has been
taken away from me... literally. I’m dead! And I’ve lost
everything and everyone I ever cared about.”
When I heard a sniffle from
Melanie, I looked at her and saw her wipe away a tear. Our eyes met,
and then she stood and went over to Harmony.
Squatting down by the chair,
she put her hand on Harmony’s and said, “I’m so sorry that we
did this to you. Please don’t take it that we hate you. We don’t.
And we wanna help you. I just think you’d be much better off with
Michael if he’s willing to take you with him.”
“But he’s in love with
“Listen, he can’t have
me, and he knows that. I think he’ll like you. And even if things
don’t work out for you to be a couple, he could be a friend and
teach you how to survive as a vampire like he did for Cam. He could
do it a lot better than we can. I mean, we all know that I’m not
exactly the portrait of self-control.”
She giggled, and then so did
“Yeah. I’m worried about
your wedding, girl. You’re gonna eat everybody there.”
With an expression that
Melanie replied, “I hope not.”
Harmony made a valid
point—one that Melanie and I were going to have to talk about soon.
Melanie stood, patted
Harmony’s shoulder, and walked back over to the couch, where she
plopped down beside me. She gave me a quizzical look.
“Fine. Go ahead and call
him. But you’re not gonna meet him without me going with you.”
“Whatever. Let’s just
see what he says. We don’t even know if he’s gonna go along with
She rushed downstairs,
retrieved her phone, and then reappeared at my side. She placed the
call and then put it on speaker.
“Are you trying to help
Camden find me?”
“No. Actually, I need a
“I’m a long way from
Birmingham, and you would be, too, if ya knew what was good for ya.”
“Whatta ya mean?”
“Word in the vampire
community is that Birmingham is crawling with hunters. They’re all
looking for that girl you turned and whoever turned her. I figured
you knew that.”
“How would we? We don’t
know any other vampires. Well, except Karina, of course,” she said
with a quick glare in my direction.
“Is she still there?”
“How would I know?”
“Anyway, whatta ya need?”
“Um. You’re on speaker,
by the way.”
“Thanks. Hey, Garrett.”
Reluctantly, I said, “Hey.”
“Michael, we have a
situation. The girl? Harmony?”
“Yeah. What about her?”
“She’s with us. And it’s
not working out.”
“What’s going on?”
“Um, Cam and I took her
out to teach her to hunt, and all Hell broke loose. Harmony and I
went into a frenzy and almost killed a man and a woman.”
Michael’s laughter burst
through the phone.
Harmony giggled, and we had
to smile. It was
I said, “Bottom line is
that I can’t take these two out together. And I can’t take
Harmony out by myself.”
naw!” Melanie yelled.
“Yeah. I see your
predicament. Whatta ya want me to do about it?”
“Michael, Cam promised me
that if you would take Harmony and teach her how to hunt and stuff,
he would let you live.”
“Melanie, I’m not going
back to Birmingham. Y’all need to get outta there, too.”
“We’ll meet you
“Never mind! Y’all, he
don’t wanna help me.”
“It’s not that. I
wouldn’t mind, but....”
“Michael, she has another

of a daily horse-fucking!”
“Oh, my God!” she
yelled, as she stood and stormed out of the room.
Michael laughed, while I
gave Melanie a look, shaming her for embarrassing Harmony.
“Sorry, Harmony, but he
needs to know what’s going on. I thought it might sweeten the
From the basement, she
yelled, “I can’t believe you said that!”
“Garrett, did you mean
what you promised Melanie?”
“I didn’t want to, but I
didn’t see any way around it. I won’t kill you if you’ll help
us out with this.”
“Yeah. I don’t know what
else to do.”
“How does the girl feel
Melanie said, “She’s not
thrilled about it, especially since I just humiliated the hell out of
her, but she knows this isn’t working. She’s willing to go along
“Okay. We’ll give it a
try. Meet me in Huntsville. That’s half-way. You okay with that?”
I said, “Yeah. We can do
“Sure. Thanks, man. I
appreciate it. Harmony’s cool. I think you’ll like her.”
“I hope she’ll be okay.”
“I’ll, uh, text you an
address sometime tomorrow evening. Wanna meet about 10:30?”
“That’s a couple-hour
trip from here, right?”
“Okay. See ya then.”
As I handed Melanie’s
phone back to her, I couldn’t help noticing the smirk on her face.
“I knew you’d come
around. It’s gonna work. I just know it.”
“I hope you’re right.
But we now have a bigger problem to worry about. Well, two of them.”
“One, the hunters. And
two, the wedding.”
“We’re gonna have to
“D’you really wanna make
the national headlines? I can see it now,” I said, moving my hand
as if it were highlighting giant letters on the front page of a

As her face drew into a
pitiful frown, and tears welled in her eyes, she whimpered, “No.

“It’s not worth the

~~~ Melanie ~~~
May 3, 2015
wedding was set for June 6th.
I wanted to believe that I could be around my family and friends on
that date and not go into a feeding frenzy and kill them all, but I
knew Cam was right. I wasn’t ready, and it wasn’t worth the risk.
I dreaded telling April, but
I had to let her be the first to know.
“We have to postpone the
“Take a wild guess.”
“That other vampire?”
“Well, that’s part of
it. Cam took us out to hunt, and it was a freaking bloodbath.”
“Oh, my God! Mel, you
didn’t kill anybody, did you?
“No. But if Cam hadn’t
pulled us off of ‘em, we would’ve killed two people. It was
awful. But then I had to face the fact that if we had the wedding
now, it would most likely be a repeat of what happened last night. I
can’t take that chance.”
“No, you can’t. Sorry,
Mel. I know how bad you want it.”
“I do,” I said, bursting

okay. It’ll be better then.”
