Excerpt: Caleb hunting Lorena


Outside I looked around feverishly as I ran towards my bug. It was still unlocked and if I could make it I’d be inside of a steel cage. A moving steel cage spiraling away from Caleb. I have my knife, but I don’t want to get close enough to use it. I got halfway across the front lawn to the driveway and looked over my shoulder. He was at the front door shaking his head at me in annoyance. I turned back to face my car thinking I’d make it. I didn’t even see a blur of color. Caleb was standing in front of the driver’s door. He wasn’t walking like a hunchback today either. He was strutting his youth.

I slid to a screeching halt on the wet grass and slipped. I hurried to my feet and started to run in the other direction. He came from behind me and caught me around my waist. I struggled in his arms and screamed for help.

“Help!! 911 somebody!! FIRE!!! RAPE!!! ANYBODY!!!” I heard my voice get successively lower each time I screamed aloud. What was he doing to me?

“Now Lorena, I realize that we may have gotten off on the wrong foot here. But, is that really necessary? I thought you were such a classy lady and here you are screaming like a banshee. I thought we had something special.” He said laughing at me, teasing me with his inane banter.

He set me down once we were back inside my house. I bolted away from him and found myself almost falling backwards over the arm of the sofa. He stood in front of the front door and looked at me as if he didn’t know where to start with the game he was playing.

“What do you want?” I asked, breathless. My voice was almost gone.

“I want what anybody would want. To do their job well and have a good time. What do you want Lorena? I thought you were begging for death and now that it’s come to claim you, you act like you don’t want it anymore.” Caleb said. As his eyebrows furrowed in, and then he smiled that teethy horrible grin. “Why are human girls always like that? I want you, then stop, no, go away! Is it because I’m so cold?” he asked and took a step forward and I flinched.

“I…” I could barely find my voice.

“Is it because I’m sooo terrifying that I don’t deserve the same kind of love that you so freely would give to Troy?” He asked and slammed his tightened fist against the door behind him leaving a rather large dent in the grain of the wood.

“Caleb.” I tried to speak.

“What? What is it that you have to say to me? You know. I might have let you go if you hadn’t run from me.” He said with certain anger in his voice. Oh, please don’t tell me I hurt the sexy voice’s feelings.

“Caleb, it’s not that. It’s just… I’m scared. Are you here for you or are you here because Primus sent you to kill me?” I managed weakly.

“What the hell difference does it make? I’m here.” Caleb said angrily. His brow was still clenched in a frown and he sounded desolate. Like he had given up on the notion of acceptance from others.

“It matters. Do you want me or did you just come to follow orders? Motive counts to a girl, a human girl anyway.” I answered trying to make him see that a kill order versus a nice visit with a lightness of heart makes all the difference in the world. Then it would’ve been another matter entirely. I might have somewhat befriended him and convinced him NOT to kill me when Primus gave the order, it would be me and a friend on the run.

“So, if I’d come without being ordered to you would have liked me?” he asked with a hopeless sense of relief. Like this was the answer he needed to try again with someone who hadn’t been marked for death. So, now he can kill me with a clear conscience knowing the answer to his problems. Shoot. That’s not the reaction I was going for.

“I would have gotten to know you. Not the strong hand of Primus’ arm. You Caleb. You’re not bad. We could have been good friends. Shoot, I might have picked you over Troy at the end of the day. I wasn’t terrified for what you’d done, but because I knew that the next time you’d ever come for me again would be to kill me.” I wasn’t lying. I think that there might be something in him that’s not bred and born to kill and pillage. There is. What a phenomenal time to try and prove it, right?

“Hmm. Well, now that that’s settled. I do feel better. Thank you.” He said pensively and lost in thought almost. Surprise replaced the anger in his eyes and his features softened. His brow smoothed from a scowl to a furrow of deep thought.

“You’re welcome.” I said shaking. Had I gotten through to him? I was trying to figure out the best way to get my knife out from behind my belt without provoking him. Just in case.

“So, as your reward for not hating me I shall let you play a game with me.” Caleb said with a sheepish smile. But, there was devilry in his eyes.

“What are the rules to this game?” I asked. I wasn’t so sure about what kind of game he would come up with after my pseudo-confession of affection for him. But, I was very sure that I wasn’t going to like it very much.

“Well, it’s pretty simple. You have to avoid being caught by me, but you can’t leave the house.” was his reply.

“Avoid being caught, like a game of tag?” I asked confused.

“Like a deer dodging a lion rather. If I catch you I have no choice but to do what I came here for.” He said looking at me with a playful expression in his eyes. He was going to enjoy the hunt while I was going to tremble in fear. Sadistic bastard. Reward my foot.
