Chapter 3

Each day of the following two weeks, Gabriel retrieved the couple, brought them to the same room, and schooled them in the art of feeding without killing. Jackson began to accept his fate and found comfort in the fact that none of his victims remembered his attacks. He had learned under Gabriel's tutelage how to influence them to forget.

Sarah found her self control quickly, and could retract her fangs of her own accord, though Jackson still required verbal cues, and at times physical restraint from Gabriel to stop feeding. They were both becoming accustomed to their superior strength and heightened senses.

One evening, Jackson heard a coach beneath the window; and upon investigation saw Victor, his two henchmen, and Gabriel board. As the coach pulled away, he woke Sarah. They made their way to the entrance, passing three even younger vampires who paid no attention.

Once outside, they headed toward the forest. Jackson said, "I think we should stay away from populated areas, the forest is our best chance to stay hidden. Are you able to run, Sarah?"

"I think so."

He held her hand as their pace continued to increase until they were moving at a speed unheard of in humans. They were deep into the woods in no time, and barely winded. The sounds and smells of the forest nearly caused them to lose focus and stop running to fully experience their surroundings. Every sense was intensified and vibrant, yet secondary to the overwhelming craving for blood.
