“What is your name?” Harrison asked me, drawing my attention back to him.

I gave him a small smile. “Does it matter?”

“Yes, I’d like to know.”

“You like your regional cuisine to have a name?” I raised an eyebrow at him.

His jaw clenched. “My brother is an idiot. I don’t feel the same way about humans as he does.”

As Harrison stepped closer, I felt my heartbeat quicken. I should be talking him out of biting me. I should be telling him I have some horrible communicable disease. I should be pulling out my gun. Instead, I was staring at his mouth, curious about how it would feel to have his fangs puncture my neck.

It would be a bold move, bold enough that perhaps Wyvern would dissolve the contract.

Harrison’s chest was inches from mine and I knew that this was the moment for me to voice an objection. There were about a thousand reasons why I should do everything in my power to stop him.

Yet, ever since that moment I broke things off with Wyvern, I’d felt lost, so much more alone than I’d ever been before Wyvern blasted through my life. For the first time in a long time, standing here in this very dangerous situation with this very dangerous stranger, I didn’t feel lonely.

Harrison’s hands touched my arms and gently moved up and down. “You’re shivering, are you cold?”

“No,” I whispered, looking up at him.

“Tell me your name.” His gaze again moved over m
y face slowly.

“I don’t want to have a name right now, please.” My heart picked up speed as he leaned in.

Adrenaline and a dangerous curiosity pumped through me from my stomach and I let my head fall to the side just slightly, showing him my neck.

Harrison’s canines lengthened as his head moved forward.
