Fallen Blood snippet

We’ve got to do something Brian,” she started saying, gaining more strength in her voice as her determination began to resolve. “We need to go to the police or…”

“Heather, look at me.” He bent down trying to get her to look at him.

“No… We need to get help.”

“Heather, wait!” He grabbed her chin with his left hand as he continued to hold her with his right. “You need to sleep.”

“No…I need to…”

“Sleep, Heather. We will get help after you sleep.” He forced her to look into his eyes.

“Sleep…” she mumbled, “we’ll get help in the morning?”

Brian nodded “Yes, after you sleep.” She smiled and closed her eyes, her form going limp and her legs buckling.

He caught her before she hit the floor, lifting her easily and then carrying her up to his room. He laid her on his bed, and then watched as she curled into a fetal position. Her breathing was deep but at least it was relaxed. He stood there and watched her for several minutes. The rise and fall of her chest was one of the most beautiful things he thought he had ever seen. It was amazing how wonderful she looked even with the scratches and smudges on her.
