Tuesday Tales - Hot

Updated: 7 days ago






By instinct, he stepped in front of his wife and dropped into a fighting stance. There were times he wished that he could make a full moon appear out of thin air. He could really use a beast out right about now. Battling this guy while wearing a suit was going to suck. 

He felt Maya’s hand clench his shoulder. “Hold up, baby.”

He turned enough to look her in the eye. “What do you mean ‘hold up’? I almost got bit by one of these assholes. I feel like death afterwards. I won’t let the same thing happen to you.”

She smiled at him and pointed. He turned his attention back to the bloodsucker. In the short time they talked, he advanced as far as the tree. That was as far as he could get. He bounced over and over again against an invisible field that kept him far from them. He roared in frustration as he launched himself at whatever blocked him. It threw him back on his ass at least ten feet from the tree. 

At the base of the tree embedded deep in the bark, Maya’s symbol glowed an eerie pale blue. Despite no source to fuel it, it radiated so hot that Joshua could feel it from where he was standing. It didn’t fade away until the vampire stormed off in a huff. 

Joshua’s eyes popped open wide. “Holy shit, baby. That was incredible.”

“And I have about two hundred more feet to cover before the circle is sealed. If that guy doubles back and tries in those areas, he’ll get in. We need to hurry.”

“Hang on.” Joshua slipped his phone from his slacks pocket. He tapped on the screen and hit send. He dropped it back in his pocket.

“Josh, we can’t waste time,” Maya chided. “What was that for?”

The deafening ruckus from the camp behind them came to a halt. The noise was replaced by silence. He grinned at her. “The cavalry.”
