Only 1 week to go before ETERNAL CHOICE is out in the world! I can't believe it's so close already -- feels like the time has sped by. And I've admittedly been a little out of it leading up to this release, but here we are, so let's do this!
I wasn’t sure I had an answer other than I wanted to know what it felt like to be bitten. If I decided to change, he’d have to bite me, and I needed to know I could handle it. And, whether out of selfishness or pure jealousy, I needed to know I was just as special as whoever else he’d bitten like that.
“Like I said. It never means anything, okay?” he said with an air of finality.
But I wasn’t going to give up so easily.
“See, that’s where you’re wrong.” I shifted so I was kneeling between his legs, facing him. “Every single time you touch me or kiss me, it means something, Trent. At least, it does to me.”
He took my face into his hands and peered into my eyes. “It means something to me, too, Chloe, which is why I don’t want to do this. I don’t want to cheapen what we have by getting you high from my bite.”
I disagreed, but I didn’t want our little disagreement to turn into a full blown fight. “Is that the only reason?” I asked.
He tilted his head, studying me through narrowed eyes. “Months ago, you wouldn’t even ask me how a person became a vampire, and now you can’t stop asking me about feeding and biting. What’s going on?”
“In case you forgot, I have a decision to make, and I’d like to have as much information as possible. Is that so terrible?” I asked.
“No,” he said, frowning. “But I thought your mind was made up.”
I shook my head. “It’s not.”
And the more time I spent with Trent, the more I fell in love with him, the farther away my human dreams got, because I didn’t want any of it if I didn’t have Trent by my side.
His head fell back against the chair, and he groaned. “You’re killing me, Chloe.”
“I’m killing you?” I snorted. “That’s kinda hard to do when you’re technically already dead.”
