From MACTUS, 2nd Book in The Light-Bearer Series
“Our races are sworn enemies of each other. The Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers are ancient rivals. However, Tab and I have a special relationship. We are not enemies. We are connected by love.” Charmeine explained to Shane.
Tabbruis looked at her with surprise and his lips curled with a smile.
Charmeine hung her head thinking maybe she shouldn’t have said it, but it was how she felt. She turned and gazed in his eyes. “Yes, I said love and meant it, Tab.”
Smiling wide now, Tabbruis lovingly took her hand, kissed it, and enfolded his hands over hers. White sparks encircled their hands.
Then Tabbruis looked at Shane and pulled a hand away. His heart became heavy with what he was about to say. “It is true. My race is called Blood-Hunters or Elders. The Elders are run by an Elder Council. They have a prison secured by Elder Temple Guards. We are supposed to track, hunt and kill Light-Bearers. They are the only threat we have on Earth. Since Charleen is a Light-Bearer, she was probably going to be captured and sent to the Elder Temple to be put to death on the Altar of Judgment.”
Charmeine realized what danger she had been in. Her body shuttered thinking about it.
Shane’s mouth hung open in disbelief.
“Furthermore, the Elder Council monitors and polices the Blood-Hunters to make sure they do not cross the line with Humans. It is a horrible thing. I loathe this war between our races. However, I cannot and will not hurt her. I want to protect and love her always.” He kissed her hand again.
“What in the Hell are you talking about, man?” Shane uttered.
Tabbruis hung his head in disgust. “I have no words to tell you how this angers me. To be with her is to be condemned by my race, the Blood-Hunters.” He looked at her with pure love in his eyes, “But it seems little price to pay to love her.”
She welled in tears. They fell across her checks as he swept them away.
Tabbruis grabbed her sparking hand and cupped it close to his heart.
“I knew you two were crazy for each other, but I had no idea.” Shane put his head in his hands. “I guess I believe you. But Man, this is a trip. In all the years I have known Char, she has never lied to me. I’m shocked. This is really out there.” He ran his hand over his half-shaven beard and sighed, “But nothing else can explain your blood loss and the way you are healed today, Tab.”
Shane is shocked!
What would you say if your best friend said they were a Supernatural?
I’m awed because Tabbruis and Charmeine know they can be put to death for loving each other.
Lots of love, Emily

“I am sorry, Charmeine, for so many things it is hard to express them all, but I am going to try.”
He took a big breath, and looked in her eyes. “I am sorry for not supporting you. I am sorry for not believing in you. I am sorry for not having faith in you. I am sorrym Charmeine. If you let me show you, for the rest of my life until the end of time, I will never doubt you again.”
“Tabbruis, I can’t do this now.”
“Please let me finish.” He gently held her chin, looked into her eyes and declared, “Charmeine you are my life. You are my light. If you go back to Long Island…”
She walked to the terrace stone wall. “Tabbruis, it isn’t so easy putting Jack and Jill back together again. I really need to be alone.”
“Look at me this time, Charmeine. I have to say my peace, and I will leave.” He stood beside her.
She turned and faced him with her hands defiantly across her chest and sighed.
“If you go back to Long Island, I will accept it, but let me go and be near you. Let me live close to you. I can buy any kind of house or apartment you wish for your own privacy. You do not need to see me, just let me be proximate to you, for you are the center of my Earth. God knows I cannot live without you. However, you will never have to lay your eyes on me. This is what I ask. Nevertheless, please forgive me, Charmeine. Forgive me enough to let me just be close to you. If you abandon me, I will not survive. Wherever you go, I will go with you. Whatever you want, I will give it to you.”
He unfolded her arms and took her hands which sparked. He unclenched her fists and drew them up in front of them, palm to palm. Her sparks began to go up and down their bodies, enveloping them with light.
“Tabbruis, do you remember the first time this happened? You were trying to convince me not to leave and sacrifice myself to the Elder Council.”
“Yes, I remember, my love.” He drew nearer to her. “I know you cannot lie to me. So answer me this, do you have the strength to be without me?”
I love the part where Tabbruis says that he just wants to be near Charmeine.
It brings a tear to my eye today.
So much love…
Enjoy the video, it’s another song that makes me shiver.
Lots of love, Emily
