Chapter 1

"Thanks for the ride, Edward," I said climbing out of his Hummer.

"Bye, Anita," he said as I shut his door.

Edward didn't leave until I was inside the house. Honestly I didn't care why he did it I just wanted some sleep.

I could feel Damian in the kitchen so I went to him. He was at the table in the dark. I turned on the light and sat across from him. Smiling he took my had and kissed my palm.

"What were you doing sitting alone in the dark?" I asked.

"Waiting for you to get home. Did you and Death get your monster?"

"Yes, but I don't want to talk about it. I'm just glad to be home," I sighed. "Thank you for waiting."

"No problem, Anita. I always feel the need to know you're safe," Damian said standing up. "You can go on upstairs now, I can feel how drained you are."

"Alright. Goodnight, Damian. Thank you again."

"Alright. Goodnight, Anita."

I went upstairs to my bedroom. Nathaniel and Micah were sound asleep so I tried to be quiet. I put my weapons away and gathered some clean clothes. As I was heading to the bathroom for a shower I looked over to see Nathaniel watching me. I smiled and made a motion for him to follow me. He quietly got out of bed and followed me to the bathroom.

"What is it, Anita?" He asked in a worried tone.

"Nothing, I just need a hand in the shower."

He grinned and asked, "What kind of hand?"

"Oh, I don't know. How about one get the shower started? Or maybe one to wash my back?"

"Is that it?"

"No that's not all. The last part requires more than you hands. I need for your body to make my body tremble and sing. Can you do all that."

"I can try," he said and went to start the shower.

I got undressed as he got the water just right. Then we both stepped under the spray. I washed my hair as Nathaniel soaped up my body. I was rinsing out the shampoo as he washed my breasts. I moaned as it turned into more than just washing.

I opened my eyes as he was leaning in for a kiss. Our lips met and the kisses were sweet and urgent. Our soapy hands were touching and grabbing onto each other's bodies. Nathaniel pushed my back to the shower wall and grabbed the back of my thighs. I wrapped my legs around his waist as he moved his hands to my ass. He watched my face as he pushed inside of me. He began a slow rhythm that had our orgasms building slowly. He made me go twice before he got close and I told him he could go.

We climbed out of the shower and dried off. His hair hadn't gotten that wet so he was lucky. I climbed in bed next to Micah and Nathaniel climbed in behind me.

"That sounded really fun," Micah said without opening his eyes. "Next time it's my turn."

I laughed and kissed Micah. Then I turned over to spoon Nathaniel's back. Micah did the same to my back and soon after I fell asleep.


*Three Hours Later*

I woke up to the ringing of my cell phone.

"How long have we been asleep?" I asked.

"About three hours," Nathaniel answered.

"Oh, crap," I said, "That's not enough sleep."

Micah was grabbing for the phone and finally the ringing stopped.

"Hello," Micah mumbled. "Yeah, here she is."

"Who is this?" I asked, grumbling into the phone. "This had better be good."

"Anita," Jason said with a shiver to his voice, "we need you, Micah, Nathaniel, and Damian here at The Circus of the Damned now. Richard will explain when you get here."

"What’s going on?" I asked the dial tone. "That's weird. Jason sounded really scared."

I started to tell the guys to get ready to go but they were already up and getting dressed. Got to love their acute hearing. Let's hear it for were animals.

I used my connection to Damian to tell him what was going on. He said he would fly over. Then I got dressed and grabbed my weapons.

"Micah," I called out tossing him the keys, "I'm too tired drive."

We climbed in my jeep and headed out to The Circus of the Damned. I had this feeling this was going to be one hell of a night.
