Who the hell was it? Nobody usually knocked at my door unless they rang up from the lobby first. Unless… I stood up so quickly that I felt a wave of dizziness. I’d almost forgotten about last night. It was Quinn. He’d found me. He’d come to kill me. What was I going to do? Defend myself, that’s what. He might be a macho vampire hunter, but this wasmy apartment. I glanced around. Yeah, my tiny, six-hundred-square-foot rented apartment. There wasn’t anywhere to hide, so I suppose defending myself was my only option.
I tried to pull away, but his grip was too strong. “Imust do nothing. ” He held on for another second, then released me so quickly that I almost fell backward into the booth. ” I suddenly felt very annoyed. “You don’t even know me. Just because I interrupted your little suicide attempt last night—” His eyes flashed, the expression on his face cutting me off from saying anything else. ” It was surprising how quickly his handsome face shifted into something scary-looking. This was not a man I wanted to be mad at me.
I could remain in control here. I wasn’t going to show him how scared I was. ” I took another deep breath. ” His grin faltered, and he took a moment before answering. ” I shrugged. ” I told myself to shut up and not make things worse, but my mouth wasn’t listening. ” The grin didn’t just falter this time, it slid right off his face. ” My stomach sank. ” What the hell was I apologizing for? I did tend to stick my foot in it sometimes. I suppose apologizing was just my knee-jerk reaction. “Yeah,” he continued, even though I didn’t want him to.
