Dana could not help but let out a slight chuckle. “Your people? And who are your people?”
“I cannot tell you that right now in case you decide that you do not want to go through with this
process. What we have to offer is very secret. We are offering your husband a second chance at life.
We offer you a chance at eternal life. You must give us a piece of yourself, however, to create a soul
sister which will become one of our kind.”
“You will give me eternal life?” Dana asked raising a pointed eyebrow.
“Yes. The process will be virtually painless. You may feel a slight stinging in your blood at first but
then you will not feel much of anything at all. Your soul sister will look exactly like you but will be a
bit…different.” Donovan sat up and straightened out his black fur coat. “Your soul sister will leave you
alone if you wish but, in times of danger she will be right there by your side. There is nothing you can do
about this; she will be there to protect you from any harm that comes your way.”
“Will there be people coming after me when this process is completed?” This part sounded the most
troubling to Dana and she wondered just who-or what-could put her in danger.
“There may be a time much later where who you are might become a problem, but that will not be for
many, many years. You will also have plenty of notice before that happens, trust me. So, do you want to
move forward with this or are you ready to take a chance and face the rest of your life without your soul
Dana felt threatened by his last words. She didn’t know if she could leave at this point even if she
wanted to. The drop in his voice during the last few sentences sounded like more of a threat than an
explanation. Dana had to admit to herself, though, that what he was hinting at was right. She didn’t
want to spend the rest of her life without Bryson. Her mother always told her that a true woman did
what she had to do in order to keep herself and the ones around her safe. This is what she had to do and
she was prepared to do it without more thinking. However, she had one more question she needed to
know the answer to.
“Will my husband receive eternal life with me?” Dana sat up straight trying not to let her fear show
through her body or on her face.
“I cannot give him eternal life; I can only offer that to you and your soul sister. My people are only
responsible for restoring his health and giving him a second chance at life.” Although this really
disappointed Dana she knew that having a second chance at life was better than letting him die so
young. The years she had to face without waking up to him every morning would be painful but, she
would always treasure the extra years they had together.
“All the same, I want to do this and get it over with. Wait! What exactly is your kind? I’ve agreed to do
it. I think I have the right to know now.”
Donovan took a deep swallow and cleared his voice, “My people are famous supposed monsters from
medieval folklore. Once I tell you this you have to go through with the process, you can never turn
back.” Donovan sat down next Dana.
“What are your people? Werewolves?”Dana gave a slight smile.
“No. Vampires,” Donovan said with a perfectly straight face. There was a moment of uncomfortable
silence between the two of them.
“Ok, I’m not really sure what is going on here but, I need you to save my husband’s life. As long as you
are not turning me into a vampire then I’m willing to do this.”
“Your soul sister is the vampire; you will live as a normal human being for all of eternity.”
“Ok, well, what do I have to do?” Dana’s eyes fluttered continually due to nervousness. She was
ashamed at how much of her vulnerability was showing. If he claimed his people were vampires than
what exactly were they capable of?
“Come.” He stood up and extended his long graceful hand to Dana while she sat completely motionless.
For the first time Donovan realized how beautiful Dana was and what a walking powerhouse her soul
sister will be.
