Part Four of Chapter Two--ENJOY!

Part Four of Chapter Two--ENJOY! It was at this point that I considered leaving and never coming back. Irritation that is not entirely my own flares up within me, and I am forced to acknowledge that I cannot just walk away. Good news, if Rufa is panicked, that means something happened, and Pilot isn’t here. Or, no, that would be the bad news, Evelyn. I can taste fear in the back of my throat and distress working its way through my lower intestines.

Pilot. Pilot Hunter. Hunter, Pilot. Pilot. I’m not nervous.
But the door being unlocked and swinging open so easily does make my nerves raise. I feel dastardly. Unclean. Manipulative, actually. As a Queen, you get used to being manipulative, but, still. Planting one’s famulus to watch over someone is kind of stepping over some line. I did it for his own protection, and it looks like it was for the best, as well: something happened, is happening. “Rufa?” I call into the empty house. Edging my way forward, I note the collection of coffee mugs, untouched, on the coffee table. I hear a fluttering of wings, and relief floods me, cooling off my beating heart. I rush to the cage, jerk open the door, and gather the bird to my arm. “It’s such a pleasure to have you back.” I coo at her. Yet the fear from before does not subside, and that's when I realize—

There’s a warning ringing in my head, deafening my senses.

—I don't recognize this fear.
I take a step toward the door, my head numb. And then I hear the floorboards creek behind me. Theo! What are you doing sneaking up on a Vampyre Queen. Silly, Theodore.
