Chapter Fourteen

The closer Beth got to her destination the angrier she became. Why does he have to be so damn stubborn? Why can’t he allow himself to be happy? Well, she’d just have to show him that she wasn’t going anywhere. Erin and Josef had put their heads together trying to figure out where Mick had gone. They decided the likeliest place was his childhood home. Josef said that it was a place where Mick liked to go to think. I just hope he’s there, Beth thought as the cab turned down the right street.

She needn’t have worried. Mick’s Mercedes was parked in the driveway. Beth handed the cabbie her fare and climbed out. Taking a deep breath, she shouldered her bag and climbed the stairs. The small house was slightly run down. Paint peeled from the walls and a couple of shutters were broken. An old rocking chair sat motionless on the porch. All in all, the house had seen better days. Beth took all this in as she raised her hand to the door and knocked firmly. Mick didn’t answer. Grinding her teeth, she knocked again. There was still no sound on the other side of the door. “Damn it, Mick, I know you’re in there. Open up.”

Inside the house, Mick sat at the kitchen table staring off into space. His brain barely registered Beth’s incessant knocks. He just knew that he didn’t want to move. Thus he was startled when the door creaked open and Beth stepped across the threshold.

“There you are,” she said.

Mick refused to look at her. “Go away, Beth.”

“No, I’ve had enough of you playing the martyr.”

This time he looked at her. “Is that what you think I’m doing? I’m trying to protect you!” he shouted.

Beth threw her bag on the couch. “Protect me from what? Life? You can’t protect me from that!”

“I’m trying to protect you from me! Don’t you understand what I’m capable of? I could hurt you!”

“Mick, the only way you could hurt me is by shutting me out! We’re in this together. You don’t get to decide what’s best for me. Only I can do that.” Beth paused, putting her hands on her hips. “Doesn’t the last year mean anything to you? Or was I just convenient?”

That stung. A lot. “How can you ask me that? This last year has meant everything to me!”

“And what? You’re willing to throw that all away? Based on something that’s never going to happen?”

“But it will, Beth! One day I’m going to loose control. I don’t want you to see me that way, ever.”

Beth’s face was flushed from shouting. Mick had never seen Beth this angry. “Do you have a crystal ball? Are you suddenly Sybil Trelawney? You don’t know what the future holds any more that I do, Mick! But I do know one thing. You are not what you think you are.”

Mick wanted desperately to believe her, but he just couldn’t. “Haven’t you been listening to a word I’ve said? Didn’t you hear about all the lives I’ve taken? The futures I’ve destroyed? I’m not a guardian angel or some knight in shining armor! I’m a monster, Beth!”

Beth drew herself up to her full height and took a few steps toward him. “There’re a dozen filing cabinets in your office that prove different. What about them? What about me? Don’t they mean anything? Don’t I mean anything? Yes, you were a monster once. But you’re not anymore! Do you honestly think I could love a monster? Do you think so little of me?”

Mick, for the first time, focused on the hurt, anger and love in her eyes. Don’t you understand how this kills me? How much it hurts to push you away? He’d been deluding himself. He couldn’t give her the kind of life she deserved. “You deserve better than me, Beth! You deserve someone who can give you a normal life!”

“Who says I want a normal life! Have I ever said that I want the 2.5 kids and the house with the picket fence? I don’t want those things! Everything I want is right here!”

“Beth, you just don’t understand.”

This was it. Her last chance to get through to him. As painful as it was, she took it. “Why wouldn’t I understand? Because I’m not a vampire? Because I’m not your precious Coraline?”

Mick’s head snapped up. “Coraline? What makes you think she has anything to do with this?”

“Come on, Mick. I heard you. You were so passionate…so loving. What the hell am I supposed to think?”

Mick couldn’t believe what he was hearing. “You have got to be kidding me! How can you think that I’d possibly choose her over you? She killed me, Beth! She turned me into this!”

“But you loved her!”

“Yes, I did. But she’s dead. I killed her for you! If she showed up right now, I’d still choose you! She can’t hold a candle to you!”

The idea that Coraline was a match for Beth was laughable and Mick had every intention of proving it to her. He crossed the room in two strides. He grabbed Beth by the shoulders and crashed his mouth down on top of hers. In her anger, she struggled against him for a minute before succumbing to his urgent mouth. He moaned as she opened for him and his tongue entered. Mick pulled her closer as he continued to practically inhale her. There was a desperation to the kiss that neither of them had felt before. It was as if they were each checking the tangibility of the other.

As Beth came up for air, Mick backed them up to the kitchen counter. He ran wet kisses down along the column of her throat. Beth fisted his shirt and started to pull it over his head. Mick released her throat only long enough for the shirt to clear his head then he attacked her neck with gusto. Beth moaned when he laved his tongue over the bite mark on her neck, the mark that so clearly marked her as his. She ran her nails down his back drawing blood. The smell of blood only fueled his ardor as she knew it would. Mick ground his erection into her making her gasp.

Needing to feel her bare flesh against his own, Mick reached into the collar of her shirt with each hand and ripped it from her torso. As the halves of her ruined shirt fell to the floor, Mick moved his assault to her chest. He made quick work of her white lace bra sending it to the floor, also ruined. He sucked her nipple into his mouth and bit down with his blunt teeth, sending electric shocks straight to her core. Beth wove her fingers in his soft hair willing him closer. At her unspoken command, Mick moved his attention to her other breast. Beth writhed between Mick and the counter, her hips bucking of their own volition.

“Mick, please…”

He released her breast and peered up at her with hooded eyes. “What do you want, Beth? You have to tell me what you want.”

All coherent thought had left her. She made some unintelligible sound and clawed at his shoulders instead. Mick chuckled and resumed licking and sucking his way down her stomach. The scent of her arousal was heavy in the air, along with something else. Mick’s eyes frosted over and his fangs descended. With quick fingers, he undid her pants and pushed them down her legs. There in the crotch of her panties lay the telltale drops of blood. The vampire growled in response. Mick lifted Beth on top of the counter and spread her legs wide. The dual scents of arousal and blood nearly made him come on the spot.

Beth continued to writhe in the counter top, desperate for release. Her eyes implored Mick to save her from this sweet torture. Mick sank to his knees, putting Beth’s slit level with his mouth. He licked his lips in anticipation of the feast to come. Mick reached a hand up around each thigh to hold her still. Mick inhaled once more before running his tongue along her wet folds. The taste of her arousal and blood was heady on his tongue. She was so sweet. So rich. So his. He needed more of that taste. He delved his tongue inside her, tearing a moan from her throat. She tried to move but he had her in an iron grip. She was completely at his mercy. He drank from her until he was drunk. Beth was teetering on the edge of the precipice, begging for release. Mick unwound his right arm from her thigh and brought his thumb to her clit. He ground his thumb into her nub and she came hard, screaming his name. He continued to drink until she had no more to give.

Beth was still trembling from her orgasm when Mick straightened. The bulge in his jeans had grown to epic proportions and was extremely painful. Mick reached down, unbuckled his belt and unbuttoned his jeans letting them fall to the floor. He stepped out of them and advanced on Beth once again. Her eyes were closed and she was whimpering softly. Mick ran his hands along her legs soothing her. He caught sight of his bite mark from a few days prior on her thigh. He bent his head down and kissed it gently. Beth moaned softly. He wanted to be inside her so badly, but he wanted – no, he needed – to hear her beg. Mick took a step closer to her allowing his cock to rub against her slick folds.

Beth reveled in the sensations. Mick ran his hands along her abdomen. The roughness of his hands on her soft skin aroused her in a way that few other things could. She moaned when his hands reached her breasts; her nipples hardening again. Beth swirled her hips in time with his hands creating delicious friction. But it wasn’t enough; she needed him inside her. She wanted him to stake his claim on her once and for all. She opened her eyes and saw him staring down at her, his eyes otherworldly. She’d never felt so loved in her entire life.

“Mick…”

“Tell me this is what you want.”

She didn’t hesitate. “You’re what I want. Take me, Mick.”

He was inside her in one swift motion. He was home. There was no there was no other way to describe what being inside her meant. This was where he was meant to be. Everything he’d gone through led him to this, to her. This was the closest heaven he would ever get. As he moved in and out of her, her breath came in pants. Her earlier orgasm left her walls sensitive to his thrusts. He hit bottom again and again. Beth clawed at his forearms as he moved faster, harder. As Beth’s walls began to flutter around him, the vampire would no longer be denied. Mick roared and lowered his head to her throat. Beth turned her head just in time. As Mick’s fangs sliced into her throat, her world ceased to exist. There was nothing but ecstasy as Mick drank greedily from her neck. Mick spilled himself inside her soon after. Sated, Mick released her throat and licked the wound clean.

Wordlessly, Mick carried a boneless Beth to the master bedroom. She whimpered softly at the loss of contact when he laid her in the bed. He crawled in next to her and she immediately curled up next to him, his chest becoming her pillow. Mick wrapped an arm around her and pulled her close.

“Are you gonna be here when I wake up?” she asked as sleep began to overtake her.

Mick smiled. “Yes, Beth, I’ll be here. Forever.”

To be continued…
