Watching him fling himself at the rabids, grinning demonically as he tore them limb from limb, reminded me too much of myself. That thing that I kept locked away, the beast that goaded me into raw animal rage and bloodlust. The part that made us dangerous to every human we encountered. The part that kept me from ever being with Zeke.

Some suggestions for you :

There will come a time when man is no longer concerned only with survival, when he will once more be curious as to who came before him, what life was like a thousand years ago, and he will seek out answers for a hundred years or so, but humans' curiosity has always driven them to find answers.

Aw, isn't that sweet. And Jackal sauntered into view, smirk firmly in place. But don't wait around on my account. It's not like I can't wait for yet another riveting night of listening to you people whine at each other. Oh, woe is me, I'm a vampire. I'm a horrible monster who eats babies and murders bunnies, boo hoo hoo.

Ash, Mab crooned as he drew near. My poor boy. Rowan told me what happened between the two of you, but I know you had your reasons. Why would you betray me?

I was a monster who killed and preyed on human life; I could never escape that, but at least I could choose what kind of lives I took.

How very like you, Puck. Ash's voice came from a great distance, and the room started to spin. Offer them a taste of faery wine, and act surprised when they're consumed by it.

Hey, corpse-breath, why don't you do everyone a favor and sew your lips shut? It'll match the rest of your face AND be an improvement. - Puck.

I figured. Can't expect a faery to do you a favor without naming a price. Squashing down my annoyance, I stole a glance at Ash, and saw him nod. He'd expected it, too. I sighed and turned back to the oracle. What do you want?

Get some sleep, soldier boy.

Helpless, I clenched my fists against my back, well aware that every mile, every minute that ticked by, took me ever farther from getting to them in time and closer to losing the red dragon forever.

Mortals have perfected the art of not seeing what they don't expect to be there.

Having a weapon you do not know how to use is better than having nothing at all, but not by much. -Kanin.

He gave my hair a final, gentle tug and turned away. I watched him go, Hunger and longing and that strange squirmy feeling twisting my insides. Crawling into my tent, I pulled the blanket over my head and tried to sleep, to forget Ezekiel Crosse. His touch. His warmth. And how badly I wanted to sink my fangs into his throat and truly mine.

I know what it's like to miss someone. To feel like you're just…wandering around, lost.

So, this is me, all of me, forever. No more looking back. No more regrets. From now on, vampire girl- he lowered his head, brushing his lips across my skins -I'm all yours.
