Never Forget

 It should never have happened.  

Anne Marie had fallen for one of them.

She knew what he was.  

She'd stalked and destroyed enough of them.

But this one...so gentle.  Never threatening, never allowing her to see the predator within.

She lay beside him, softly brushing the hair from his forehead.  Placing her lips there, above his brow.

A tear threatened to escape.  A shuddering breath called it back.

She had made a mistake, forgetting who she was.

One last look at the crimson stained stake in his chest.  

He'd known what she was as well.  And, as well, had forgotten.

    1. Exactly, thank you for stopping by.
      I just couldn't do a "normal" romance with this one.

    1. Never easy. But sometimes necessary. Maybe?

  5. Loved it! It really had me wondering throughout, just what the "difference" was.
