Chapter Six

Mariah sat heavily on the wooden chair he pulled back. Their table was situated against the wall farthest from the dance floor. From there, she could see everything happening in the club—the activities on the dance floor, those standing at the bar, the hallway leading toward the restrooms. She couldn’t stop staring around her. Something about the scene unfolding in front of her felt familiar.

Viper turned his chair and straddled it, his arms on the chair back as he stroked away the condensation gathering on his bottled water. He looked so calm, so blank. Which angered her, although she had no right to judge him. She really shouldn’t care what went down in this club—what he did inside its walls—but she couldn’t help how she felt. In fact, she was rather relieved that she could feel anything at all, because she realized she’d been fuzzy, disassociated from her surroundings and her own life for far too long. Like she’d been living in a bubble. “I don’t like your hair,” she blurted then blushed. What an inane thing to say!

One corner of his mouth curved upward. “Don’t like the cut?” he said, his deep voice a sensual rumble.

She stiffened to suppress the shiver that started at the base of her spine. She was here to figure out some things, and then move on to investigating the big gaping holes in her memory. Why she’d decided this was the place to start hadn’t been part of any thought-out strategy. She’d gone with her gut. “No,” she said. “And I don’t like this club.” She waved a hand toward the crowded dance floor. “I don’t know how you stay in business. Some of these people aren’t of drinking age. And doing that can’t be safe,” she said, wrinkling her nose, then gasping as the young man whose neck was being ravaged went to his knees. Concern stiffened her posture. She began to rise, sure someone would have to render medical aid or call 911.

Viper reached out and pulled her back down. Then he lifted a finger.

The blonde waitress who’d brought them their water, moved with incredible speed to the woman and tapped her shoulder. The woman raised her head, revealing a row of jagged teeth and a bloodied mouth, but although her lips lifted in a snarl, she backed away.

The waitress bent toward the man and the wounds that spurted blood onto the floor then sealed her own mouth over his neck.

Mariah held her breath until the woman moved back. The wounds were gone. “What…?”

The waitress grabbed one of the young man’s arms and pulled his body upward, taking him over her shoulder, although he was much taller and had to top her weight by at least thirty pounds. When she rose, she walked with ease to an empty table, pulled out a chair and set the young man on it.

He gave her a dreamy smile, then let his head crash to the table.

Viper grunted. “He’ll be fine. When he wakes, he’ll have a bit of a hangover, but he’ll only remember the pleasure.
