"Wait," Nathaniel began, catching my arm, "I'm serious you know, about what I asked yesterday." I stared up at him, his eyes were soft, but they held mine intently.
I licked my lips. "I know Nathaniel, but you know the ru…"
He waved a hand, "screw your uncle's rule. Do you always listen to him? Are you just a puppet on his strings?"
I narrowed my eyes.
Nathaniel let go of my arm and held his hands up. "I’m sorry, I meant no offense. But, just, have dinner with me." Nathaniel shoved his hands into his pockets and gave me a crooked smile. I sighed, mostly because I had wanted this since the first time I had met him. But there was the other part of me that knew this only meant trouble.
I looked around to make sure we were alone before responding, "Fine, I will pick you up after I get off work."
Even though I knew agreeing to a date with a vampire would only lead to heartbreak.
