"Turn here." Tara shouted over the wind. I followed her instructions and turned left down a dirt path. The only light coming from the motorcycle
Thinking the sea of trees would never end they finally did.
"Over there." Tara pointed past my shoulder to a small wood shack.
I parked next to it and slid off after Tara.
We stood at the door and I took in what I was seeing. A small one room cabin and then Tara opened the door and invited me in.
The room was fairly large with a small bed in one corner with light blue sheets. A unlit fireplace and some pillows at the base. The kitchen was simple a sink, counter, and refrigerator and a small dinning table with two chairs. A few windows scattered about the walls. It felt so warm, so loved, so Tara.
"How do you get electricity?" I asked stepping around the open room.
"Magic. A simple spell keeps my food cold and there is a well for the water." She answered taking off her coat and placing it on the back of an unoccupied chair.
I followed suit and showed off my body with my white ruffle shirt and tight leather pants. I had no idea why I wanted to impress this girl so much but I did.
Tara turned her face from me and walked over to the sink. "Do you want something to drink?"
"No, thank you I'm fine." I answered politely. "May I sit?"
"Oh yes go ahead." Tara said quickly.
I moved around her and sat in one of the wood chairs. "So, do you come here a lot?"
Tara nodded and sat opposite of me. "Usually we sleep as a pack but I was driven out a long time ago. So I mostly live here."
"I'm sorry. You must be really lonely." I said looking down at table.
"No I like it here. Being in nature and safe. Now here you are keeping me company." She hid her face in her hair again and I felt my lower body clench. Then something clicked in my head. I wanted her. I wanted to feel her in me to have my tongue on her delicate skin, to feel her wetness clench my fingers.
"Tara can I ask you something?" I said trying to find her eyes in the golden sunshine of her hair.
"Flame you can ask me anything." She looked up at me her eyes locking on mine.
Now that she had given the 'okay' how do you ask someone if they were into girls?
"Um, are, are you. I mean do you like girls at all?" I said taking a deep breath.
She smiled at me like I had just given her the sun and after a moment of basking in her warmth she spoke. "I like you Flame. I like you a lot."
I let out the breath I had been holding. "I've never liked anyone before, so I was like okay maybe I don't have a sexual preference. Then I met you and I couldn't stop thinking about you when I went to sleep yesterday and yeah. I'm babbling aren't I?" How corky could you get!
"So does that mean you like me too? Not just in a friend way." She asked still smiling.
"I think so, well I mean we have just met and you're a wolf and I'm a vamp. Not sure how well that would go over with my coven and with your pack and-" My lips where stopped by the wet moist lips of Tara's.
Somehow she had made her way over to me while I was babbling and now I had her lips on mine.
We just stayed like that for a moment. Me sitting with my head bent back and her bent over me lips locked together. It wasn't until I felt her tongue slip over my fangs that I was back in my own body.
I wrapped my hands around her neck and pulled her into me, our lips mashing together. The kiss began to deepen as she placed her hands on my shoulders and brought my tongue out with hers urging me into her mouth.
We both moaned as I sucked on her bottom lip. I moved my hands from her neck to her waist and pulled her down onto me. She placed one leg on each side straddling me. We pulled apart long enough to get settled and she bent down again to capture my lips.
I ran my hands up and down her back until I wanted to feel her skin. As I made me way back down again I slipped my hands under her shirt and kneaded her flesh with my finger tips.
Tara whined into my mouth as I brought my nails down her smooth skin. She broke from my lips and threw her head back and I scratched at her again. I looked up watching her face.
"Mmm, oh Flame." She moaned.
I stopped and pulled my hands out from around her back and put them on her hips.
She looked down at me raising her eyebrows. "What's wrong?"
I nudged at her until she swung her leg over and stood and I stood up after her. She looked at me like I was about to hit her and turned her eyes away from me.
I placed my hand on her chin and turned her back to me. "Nothings wrong. I just want you to know my real name, so you can call that out instead."
Her eyes flicked to me and she smiled broadly. This was a deciding factor to me. Letting a woman I had just met know my true name. The name that filled my heart with grief. But she deserved to know, my first kiss had been shared with someone who didn't care what I was, or what I've done, but someone who saw me as me. She looked at me like I was great and that to me meant more than all the stars in the sky.
"My true name, my Irish name is Willow. Willow Rosenberg."
Tara sighed and looked at me, kindness in her face. "Willow. What a beautiful name."
I stepped closer to her and outstretched my hands. She moved into me and I hugged her tightly. We rested our heads on the others shoulder. I moved backwards dragging her with me. Bumping into the bed I sat pulling her down as well.
"Wow, I've never felt like this before." I said in awe, settling down.
"Me either." Tara whispered.
"What does this mean? We're not allowed to be together. We're not even suppose to talk to each other." I looked at her, our eyes melting into one another and knew this was right. What we felt wasn't just something either of us could ignore.
Vampires don't have gender standard. We fall in love with whoever we want. I don't know of anyone who has ever fell in love with a werewolf, but I'm sure it's not as far fetched as it sounds.
"I-I'm not sure what we should do." She answered honestly. "If we are going to be together, it'll have to be secret. But I'm not very good at lying."
I frowned. "Me either. Here lets do this. I will talk to William about this he'll know what to do. Until then, what do you say to being more than just my friend?"
Tara dipped her head and blushed. "I would like that very much Fla- Willow."
I bet my smile touched my ears as I bent over to kiss her lightly on the cheek. She turned her head to meet mine and our lips touched, brining out sighs on us both. Our lips moved in time together as I ran my hand up her right arm up to her neck and gripped her warm flesh. Tara pushed herself into me more so I could feel her breasts on my other arm. I moaned quietly into her mouth and let out lips stop. My lower body was screaming to be touched and I didn't want to rush something we both weren't ready for.
My eyes focused and all I could see was her. "So is that a yes?" I laughed.
"That is a definite yes." She smiled back planting a light kiss on my waiting lips.
"Okay so I'll talk to William and I'll see you tomorrow?" I asked inertly.
"Well, um the full moon is in a couple of days. I'm not sure you want to be around, when I begin to change." She answered looking down away from my eyes.
"I'm not worried what you look like. I've always been a dog per-" I stopped when she began to shake her head back and forth.
"It's not about what I look like, it's more like what'll I'll do to you."
I laughed. "I'm not worried about getting hurt trust me."
"Oh I know that." She said quickly "You're very strong. Oh so strong. It's just that, it's been so long since I've had someone so... close... I might attack you, um sexually not so much physically."
I opened my eyes wider and looked at her. Seeing all that she was. She didn't want to take this any farther than I did, not yet at least.
"Oh," I said quietly "I understand. What if I just leave when you start to get all sexy on me." I hit my head with my palm instantly as soon as the words drifted in the air. "I- I didn't mean it like that. I meant that if you change into something sexual, I'll just get on going, you know me, Runaway Willow at your service. I"ll leave any time you um want me to and yeah I'm done."
Tara giggled and placed her hand on my shirt collar pulling me to her and kissing me deeply, probing her tongue into my warm mouth. She pulled away a minute later, both of us panting for breath.
"Don't worry, I'll let you know." She said her eyes glazed over slightly.
All my thought was lost, but I knew dawn was coming soon. "I better go before the sun comes out." I said sadly.
"Do you have to leave? I mean can't you just stay u-until I fall a-asleep?" Tara said frantically.
I looked into her panic-stricken face and smiled. How could I refuse?
"I'll stay until you drift off okay?" I said softly.
"Okay." She said quietly.
"Okay then." I said a bit nervously looking around.
After a few moments of uncomfortable silence I finally made the first move by bending down and unlacing my shoes.
I heard Tara inhale a sharp breath and I lifted my eyes to see her whilst I continued to take off my boots.
Her face was red and her eyes were unfocused. She was staring at me like a lion would a wounded gazelle. At first it made me a bit uncomfortable until I realized what was happening.
I let my boots hit the wood floor with a soft thump and wiggled my toes in my socks. Tara looked up and down my legs as they flexed at the tiny movement. I reached around my back slowly and untied my knife. I scooted back towards the headboard and placed the blade on the night stand.
All the while the bed bumped with my movements Tara's eyes never left me. She watched my hand hold myself steady as I extended the other one to the table. I could feel her burning into me and to be honest it pleased me.
I finally looked her full into the face, crossing my ankles and tapping the space next to me. "Are you ready?" I said huskily, quickly clearing my throat.
She nodded her head vigorously and made haste with her shoes and crawled with such ease towards me. She stopped when she came close to touching my knee. She looked down at my leather pants and closed her eyes. She lifted her head slightly and sucked in, her nostrils flaring slightly.
I blushed profusely, I knew what she was doing. Taking in the smell of my arousal and it was boiling her blood. Just when I thought the sexual thing she was talking about was about to erupt she moved on and placed herself so delicately next to me.
I watched quietly as she pulled the covers down and slit in with grace. She scooted down until all that was above the covers was her head. She wasn't touching me but I could feel her breath on my arm and it made me want to take her then.
Easy Willow. One thing at a time.
She tentatively moved one hand out and towards my thigh. "Is this okay?" She asked.
I nodded my head and we both sighed when her hand fell quietly on my tense body.
Without even thinking I placed my arm out around her head and pulled her upper body into my lap.
She giggled and nestled into my hip. "Good-night my sweet Willow."
"Good-night my Goddess." I whispered but she didn't hear me. She was already out.
I looked down at the slumbering beauty and ran my fingers though the golden locks. My head began to dim and my eyes closed welcoming a foreboding darkness.
