The skeletal vampire smiled, his lips cracking as the skin stretched farther than it could handle, with red–black sluggish blood welling up in the fissures. His ice blue eyes rimmed crimson, adding to his terrifying appearance. The world around her fell away, and he was all that she could see. Morgan’s sword cane was in her hand but the blade caught on the sheath and wouldn’t come free. Pain and pressure ripped through her throat. Her sword slid from her fingers, and she reached up to pull the syringe from her neck. She glanced at it, an antique, the plunger was depressed and a drop of crimson clung to the tip of the needle. Liquid numbness slithered through her veins. Her thought processes slowed. Darkness hovered around the edges of her vision narrowing her focus. All she could see was The Dracul’s employee entrance. If she could get inside, she could bar it and, with a little luck, be safe until either the drugs wore off or dawn came.
“Why do you fight?” Azreal stepped in front of her, his visage morphed, twisting and stretching until it became something out of a horror movie. The long beak-like hooked nose filled Morgan’s line of sight. Red eyes stared at her, boring through the drug induced fog. Alexander’s vice-like hands gripped her arms with his fingers, digging into her flesh.
The darkness that had been playing around the edges of Morgan’s vision rushed forward. As it pulled her under, she heard Azreal say, “Bring her.”
