voice. All this excitement was catching. Hopefully it
wouldn’t be too long before she had an answer.
    “Can
be as soon as twenty four hours, but certainly within the next three days.
You’ll get thirsty except nothing you drink will quench your thirst.”
    Tanya
felt her stomach turn. “I forgot about that. I’ll want blood.”
    Charlotte
laughed. “It’s not as bad as what you think, in fact, you’ll crave it and will
enjoy drinking from the kings. Don’t pull such an ugly face.” She laughed
again.
    “I
just can’t imagine it.”
    “It’s
great. The sex is phenomenal when both of you drink from each other as well.
Hopefully you will continue to crave blood after you have had the baby.”
    “I’m
going to take a nap now. Maybe you can come back in an hour or two.” All this
talk of drinking blood made her feel a little queasy, and frankly she just
needed some time alone. Charlotte was sweet in a backward way, but she didn’t
feel like keeping a brave face. What she needed was a shower and some sleep.
    Charlotte
smiled warmly. “That would be good for the baby.”
    “Stop.”
    “Sorry,”
she winced. “Just remember, I am here for you. If you change your mind about
helping out with…”
    “I
won’t.” She tried not to sound like too much of a bitch because the infuriating
woman really was just trying to be helpful.
    “Eat
something first.”
    Go
away.
    “I’m
really tired.”
    Charlotte
narrowed her eyes. “Fine, but I’ll be back in an hour or two to check on you.
I’ll bring food.”
    Tanya
nodded. Charlotte grabbed a second blanket from the foot of the bed and tucked
her in. If she really was pregnant—her heart rate increased at the thought—she
wasn’t sure she could handle twelve whole months of being coddled like this.
    Once
Charlotte had left the room, she put a hand to her belly. A baby. A tiny little
person who would be her responsibility. To raise, to love…she found that she
didn’t mind the idea anymore really. In fact, she was starting to wish it was
true. One little piece of hope amongst all this chaos.
     
     
     

Chapter 4
     
    Three
days later, Brant still hadn’t returned. Tanya was worried. She took another
bite of her third cupcake. Vanilla with strawberry butter icing. The treat made
her feel at least a little better. Zane had assured her that Brant and the rest
of the vampires in the hunting party were fine. They were trying to find out
where the wolves were holed up at. The problem was that they were a nomadic
species, and although they had their borders and territories, essentially, they
could be anywhere. With miles of open country and a mountain range, there was a
vast territory to cover. That had to be it.
    Zane
hadn’t spent much time with her. Scouts had been sent to monitor the elven
territories. There was even talk of retaliation. Tanya was too afraid to ask if
it was true. The thought of Zane or Brant, or both, heading up a war party had
her gut twisting sharply and bile rising in her throat. He had given her
regular updates on Brant, but so far the hunting party had come up empty handed
at every turn.
    Although
Zane had slept with her every night for a few short hours, he hadn’t so much as
tried to kiss her again. Charlotte’s words kept ringing in her ears. Was he
getting his needs met elsewhere? She’d played their conversation over and over
in her head and he’d never sworn fidelity. He’d said that he would be faithful only
once they were mated which, technically, hadn’t happened yet.
    She
took another bite, closing her eyes as the sweet icing melted in her mouth. Nothing
like cake for breakfast.
    “Well?”
A familiar feminine voice.
    “Well
what, Charlotte?” She opened her eyes wishing she’d kept them closed. The tall
vampire wore a tight floral dress that barely covered her ass. Tanya could feel
that she had put on a few pounds since coming to live with the vampires. It was
from all the delicious food and being waited on hand and
