Excerpt & More
How far can one person run? How fast can one person run? Sooner or later, no matter what, you reach the end of the line. That was exactly what Meldamiriel thought as she quickly made her way to Dragonmire Castle where she hoped and prayed that she could seek true safety and sanctuary. Her friend Natasha had promised her she would be safe there. She just had to get there. The Russian vampire clan led by Bullock was after her and hot on her heels. If it wasn't for the force of wind that she had on her side, there would be no chance of her ever out-running the blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Then again, if she wasn’t an Omega Elf, wielder of all four elements, she wouldn't be in this position in the first place. No, she would be able to live out her life peacefully like a normal person. However, she wasn’t normal, and therein lay the problem.
She had the ability to control all elements; earth, wind, air, and fire. She could even shape shift into any animal she wanted to. That didn’t mean she was safe. In fact, the exact opposite was true. Creatures of all supernaturals had been after her blood for as long as she could remember. It seemed everyone was greedy and wanted the ultimate power, that was assumed, she possessed. All she wanted was a chance to live a normal life.
Though she feared large, scaly, fire breathing dragons, (really, who wouldn’t?) she knew that she could trust her friend Natasha to keep her safe from any and all harm. And since she literally had nowhere else to go, no one else to turn to, she supposed getting help from dragons was now her best bet at surviving. At least they were one of the few paranormal creatures that hadn’t tried hunting her down.
She ran so fast that she sped right past her friend Natasha and her mate Blain. But there was another dragon shifter with them, one she didn’t know. For reasons she couldn’t name, she felt a pull towards him. But she couldn’t stop now. She knew the vampires were close, too close. She had to seek shelter in the castle, and fast!
As she came to a screeching halt at the front door of the castle, she could hear the conversation behind her. Just as the hairs on her arms began to stand up in warning, she heard one of the dragon shifter men behind her breathe out the warning, “vampires.” She pounded frantically at the front door, even though in the back recesses of her mind, she knew that Natasha and Blain were coming up behind her.
The big, heavy doors opened and she pushed past the person on the other side with little thought. There, she made it. She collapsed on the floor in a heap, trying to catch her breath and relieve the stitch in her side. A moment later, Natasha came crashing through the doors and skidded to a halt beside her, throwing her arms around her friend. “Meldamiriel, are you okay?”
Still trying to catch her breath, she managed a nod, and then pointed to the double doors. “I was followed.”
Natasha pulled her friend up to a standing position before replying. “I know, but you are not to worry. Blain has many guards; you are safe here.” She turned her friend away from the door and towards the stairs. “Let’s get you settled into a room and then you can tell me what’s going on.”
They went up the stairs arm in arm. Goodness was she tired. As Natasha opened the door to a guest bedroom, Meldamiriel felt ashamed of her appearance. She didn’t need a mirror to know she looked awful. She’d literally been on the run for the past three days. There was no time for sleep, the luxury of a shower, or even clean clothing. She was barely able to grab a few morsels of food here and there to keep her going. She suspected the vampires had planned it this way. They knew with the element of wind on her side, they couldn’t outrun her. But they must have figured if they kept on her long enough, and didn’t allow her time to rejuvenate her body, sooner or later she would start wearing down. Then they would have her right where they wanted her.
She looked around the pristine room and shuddered. She needed a bath, food, and a nap, in that order. Thankfully, her friend seemed to be able to read her mind. “The bathroom is through the door on the right. Go ahead and take a good, long soak while I try to gather up some clothes for you and see about some food.”
Meldamiriel walked into the embellished bathroom and leaned over the huge tub. Turning on the faucets, she filled the tub and added a bit of bath salts that she found nearby. Stripping out of her nasty clothing, she looked down at them in disgust. They would probably need to be burned. Climbing into the hot water that faintly smelled of roses, she turned the faucets off and leaned back, closing her eyes.
