Teaser Tuesday with J. A. Campbell

Sorry I am posting this so late in the day.  Work had me out late last night and I really just got up about an hour ago 🙂

This one is from a short Ekatarine Story I wrote several years ago.  Kat is one of my original characters.  She will eventually see print, I’m just not sure in what form yet 🙂

Some swearing in this one.

I was about to share my thoughts with Alex and Charity when I felt the cold steel of a semi auto pressed against my temple.  I froze.  Shit.

“Charity?” Alex said.

“She’s a fucking vampire, Alex.”

“Uh, if I am then holding a gun to my head is probably not in your best interest,” I felt I had to interject.

I turned to look at her, the gun now pointed at the middle of my forehead.  It was a tad uncomfortable.

“Wh…”

“Because I’ll do this,” I grabbed the gun, pointing the barrel at the ceiling and pulled Charity to me, shielding my body from Alex with hers, all faster than they could follow.

“Charity,” Alex whispered.  I could see the panic in his eyes.

“Next time Charity, don’t hesitate, just pull the trigger,” I whispered into her ear.  We still didn’t want to attract attention.

“I… I wasn’t sure.”  She was panicking too and they were both damn lucky I had good control and wasn’t interested in killing either one of them.  Yet.  She had, after all, hesitated.

“If I were anyone else you’d be dead because of that hesitation.  Don’t ever forget it.”
