The hunter’s words had stayed in her head. How Hanna was no different than Abner. How both were ticking time bombs. And that’s when the huntress realized.
Her love for Abner had made her weak.
She’d given in and loved him and accepted monsters as bed-mates all because they were suddenly okay since her late husband had joined their ranks. But now she knew how wrong that had been.
Adelaide packed up her guns and headed out into the night. It was time to put her late husband and friend to eternal rest.
Blaney and Abner had been out hunting down some gremlins near a hospital. It was an incredibly dangerous place for those creatures to be. They had a tendency to destroy electrical equipment and cause massive malfunctions to machines. Them being near a hospital put several dozen if not a couple hundred people’s lives at risk.
The job done, the two vampires began packing up their gear into Blaney’s truck when a bullet ripped through Abner’s shoulder. He hissed in pain as the witch turned to their assailant, readying spells to make their escape.
"Damn, I missed."
"Adelaide?! Are you fucking kidding me?! What the fucking shit are you doing?!" Brianna telepathically told Abner to get in the truck and get going. She’d cover his escape since she was more powerful.
"I’m making things right." Adelaide raised her firearm and fired at Blaney, aiming for her heart.
The vampiress cast a blinding white barrier, destroying the bullet as Abner took his chance to get in the truck and drive off. “Adelaide! Stop this shit! You know we ain’t monsters!”
"You’re not human. Therefore, you must die."
Adelaide moved closer and fired again. The barrier had been let down so Blaney could make her escape, allowing the bullet to pierce her belly.
"FUCK!" The witch cursed before paffing into a swarm of bats and flying off. Her and Abner needed to get home and feed. And then they needed to warn the others.
