Small snippet from SEDITIOUS
In Romania, he paced in front of Bathsheba’s hospital bed, and doubted if he could pull his role off. Tabbruis was assigned to make her divulge information about Lord Cromwell while using sexual attraction and flirtation to get her 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.” Her tongue slowly licked her lip 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, Tabbruis, 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 that fat woman? 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 Bathsheba did not know about all of Charmeine’s powers.
Bathsheba was pure evil…
a great character to write for!

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
