The tears burned her eyes as she watched him walk away.
Her throat was aflame as she fought to stop herself from crying out.
She bit the inside of her mouth and dug her nails into her palms. She welcomed the pain as she concentrated on staying where she was.
Everything within her demanded she run after him; fall to her knees, beg him, plead with him, promise him anything to make him say.
She knew why he was going. Why he was leaving. Why he was leaving her.
She knew, but she didn't understand.
She loved him.
He loved her.
Together they'd broken every law, every rule.
She felt his gaze settle on her and then . . .
And then he turned and walked away.
Later that evening, alone in her room, she touched her neck where he'd buried his fangs.
She touched it and she remembered the exhilaration she'd felt as he'd drunk from her. She felt again the burring insider her that had wanted him to drink and go on drinking and drinking.
And finally, with her fingers touching where his fangs had cut, she let the tears fall down her cheeks.
And as they fell they burned her.
