Horrified from what I’d just witnessed, I gave no resistance as the two vampires pulled me out of the office and through the warehouse. I didn’t think about what may happening to Doris, or even wonder if he was still alive.
The shocking of witnessing my best friend get his heart ripped out of his chest before becoming a pile of ashes was all I could see. Sure, he’d been a spineless coward, one who’d given me up to save his own skin. It had been a real blow. But, even with all of that, it certainly didn’t warrant such a gruesome death.
And then seeing Victoria satisfied grin as he began to devour Alex’s heart.....the man was truly evil.
“ Did you notice the look on that freak’s face when Victoria stuck him with that knife?” said the vampire to my off. “ He almost looked relieved.
