In Romania, Tabbruis paced in front of Bathsheba’s bed in the hospital, and doubted if he could pull his role off. He was assigned to make her divulge information about Lord Cromwell while he used sexual attraction and flirtation to get Bathsheba’s defenses down.
Tabbruis could not understand how he was duped by the woman in front of him. She was not one tenth the beauty Charmeine was. His arms ached to hold his wife, touch her belly and feel Baby Hunter under his hand. He closed his eyes and whispered a prayer, “God please give me another chance with my wife. Our two hearts are lost and cannot resume beating unless we are together. I was a fool, Lord. She is the only woman I have ever loved.”
He opened his eyes and looked at Bathsheba. He thought, ‘This was not love. I was never in love with her. Our relationship was something sick, dark and Evil, contrived by Lucifer himself!’
All of a sudden, he felt a prick on his neck. He turned to find Bathsheba in front of him with her fangs exposed.
Bathsheba wiped her red lips with her tongue and smiled with a drop of blood dripping down the side of her mouth. She teased her thick French accent, “You must be getting slower in your reflexes during the years.” She licked her lip with her tongue to entice him.
Tabbruis wanted to kill her right where she stood! His eyes became black on the outside with green pinpoints in the middle. The eye change was not from desire, but from anger! He took a breath and resigned himself with the task he must do to make sure his family was safe.
“Bathsheba, I cannot believe you are alive,” he whispered as he closed his eyes and hugged her. “Why are you here?” He held her face an inch away and trembled with fury. He used all his strength not to destroy her on the spot, and thought, ‘Control Tabbruis, you have to get information from her.’
“You have been a naughty boy shacking up with a Light-Bearer. The thought of that cow with you makes me sick. Really Tabbruis, you should have a modicum of respect for the Elders?” She flirted with slanted eyes and a smile.
He clenched his teeth and wanted to slap the smile off her face. With his composure recovered, he asked, “Are you hungry Bathsheba? You must be. Let us go and get some refreshment.”
“I would like you to come here.” She sat down on the bed, and patted a spot beside her. With a flip of her long black hair, she flirted, “Tell me what you have been up to Tabbruis. Where is the little woman anyway? She was very impressive. The Witch held me without even touching me.”
“Yes, I know, but she is not here now. She became angry, because I stayed by your bedside waiting for you to awaken. You know the type, very jealous?” He was glad she did not know about all of Charmeine’s powers.
When I wrote this,
I wanted the reader to understand how
regretful and angry Tabbruis was with himself,
let alone Bathsheba.
I have had times like that.
We are so mad at ourselves
but then the feelings are hard to control.
