Part 2381 – Vanquishing Temptation

“You are an outrageous brat, teasing me like that.” Ambrose murmured in Barbara’s ear.

She giggled. “I don’t know what you mean.”

He kissed the outer rim of her ear. “Oh, I think you do.” He kissed her ear lobe. “But I love it.” He kissed the side of her neck. “I love you.”

She leaned her head back.

Ambrose ran his finger down the right side of her neck. He could almost feel her scent embed itself in his fingerprints. He licked his lips.

“I love you too.” Her voice vibrated in his fingertips. “I love you with no regrets or hesitation.”

He could almost see her scent staining his fingers.

I can’t. I WON’T! Never. Never again.

He pressed his lips against her neck.

How could I when she loves me? She trusts me. I will NOT break her trust.

I will not hurt her.

Ambrose kissed her and backed away from her. “I love you so much.”

Barbara raised her head. “But you have to go.”

He nodded. 

She traced the lines of his shoulder blades. “I don’t want you to leave me. Couldn’t you just bite me?”

“NO.”

She smiled sadly. “I didn’t think you’d say yes.”

Ambrose wanted to apologize, but he knew it would be a lie.

Barbara moved her hand to right above his heart. She spread her hand out on his bare skin as if she were doing some sort of protective spell.

His pupils widened.

She’s weak. Vulnerable. Unsuspecting. Pin her down. Bite her. Drink. Hungry.

NO!

“I’ll be safe.” He put his hand on top of hers. “I promise I’ll come home to you.”  He kissed her. “I have to go take a shower. It makes hunting a lot easier if I smell good.”

“I don’t know about that. You smell good to me.”

“Ha! Naughty girl.”

She giggled and the temptation lost its grip on him.

“I love seeing you this happy.” he said. “Oh, if I could just stay here a little longer.”

She kissed him. The bathroom light behind her made her honey-blonde hair shine like a halo. “I’ll be here when you get back.”

Ambrose twirled several of her hair strands around his finger and kissed it. He closed his eyes like a contented cat as she ran her fingers through his hair. “You naughty, provocative creature. Trying to sweet talk me into staying.”

“Hmm?” Barbara said. “Was I? I was just trying to see if I could make you purr.”

“Ha!” He opened his eyes and grinned. “And you say you aren’t naughty.”

She giggled again. “Have I ever said that?”

“Hmm. Maybe.” He kissed the side of her neck again and temptation remained silent. “I’m gonna wash up, hunt, and come running back to you. I will always come back to you. I promise.”
