“I think my dear that you and I would make a good match. No doubt you have received word from the council about choosing a vampire mate. I thought perhaps you would consider me? Being the mate of a council member will give you a great advantage and a powerful standing, in the vampire community. I am even willing to allow you to keep your little kitten over there as your sex slave, that is, when you are not attending to my needs.” His lust filled eyes bored into mine. I felt my stomach churn, I’ve got to keep it together or it won’t work.
“Oh my, that is a generous offer,” I lied as I delay my answer. “And why would you choose me, Barron?”
“I’m a fair man, Dominique, and a powerful one. You are powerful in your own right; I see no reason why we can’t be powerful together for the common cause of our fellow vampires?” He flicks his tongue lightly over his fangs, a gesture that makes me even more nauseous.
I begin to probe his mind, reading his thoughts to see what he is not saying. I discover that he has plans of his own, big plans. Many of the council seem to see things his way and though he is not of one of the royal bloodlines, he can take the leadership by force, especially with me as his mate. He thinks my blood will make him powerful indeed. His is well aware of the affect my blood seems to have on those who’ve tasted it.
My power reacts to my emotions and his thoughts of using me to gain control of the council pisses me off; not to mention what he wants to do to Azazel.
It’s now or never Dominique, just do it! I think to myself. I began to use my mind control, I narrow my eyes as I reach up and stroke his cheek with my free hand.
As Lord Barron leans in to kiss me, I grab his hair, forcing him to look into my eyes, a bold and seductive move. Tristan and Jason make no move to interfere; it looks to them like we are a couple about to kiss. Jason swallows hard as he wills himself to stay put. He has to trust that I know what I am doing. Asmodeus has the drinks in hand but makes no movement to return to the booth as he stands at the bar and watches.
Lord Barron is trapped in my gaze, my power is stronger than he imagined. He cannot look away from my dazzling eyes and luscious lips. On the inside, he is shocked, enraged and afraid. For a vampire as old as he, he made a classic rookie mistake, never underestimate your enemy. I am mere inches from his face, my breath warming his skin as I give him a wicked smile. Within seconds, he begins to hear my voice in his mind.
