7/4 77p “Captivated” by Deb Apodaca
I let out a huff and forced a smile. “You’re a vampire.” I stated.
Dean tilted his chin up and smiled. “I have no fangs.” he said through his teeth.
I examined the glistening white canines. They were normal, just like mine. “You retract them when you don’t need them.” I said.
Dean moved across the table and put his face up to mine. His mouth was a torturous breath away from my own. “Then why haven’t I sucked your blood Lina?” He whispered right before pressing his soft lips against mine. Then he inched towards my neck and lingered his lips on my pulse. His soft breathing tickled my skin and triggered a chill that shot up my spine. My blood jumped to a rush and began to throb for him. If he were a vampire, I swear I’d let him suck me. “Why aren’t I biting you right now?” He whispered. It took everything I had in me not to melt into the seat and land as a puddle on the ground.
