I thought today I would take us back to the beginning of Angel’s story and how she reacts to finding herself in the position of becoming a vampire.
I hope you enjoy this little blast from the past

I awake to a cool cloth pressed to my forehead. It is the doc again.
She leans in to take my pulse. “That’s quite a scare you gave us all there, Angela. Your blood pressure went a little too high, so you blacked out. You have to try to stay calm when you’re in metamorphosis.”
That is easy for her to say. I found out that the people I have been working with for the last few weeks, including Archie; know my mother. “I need to speak to Archie, I would like some answers and I want them now.”
The Doc is treating me like a petulant child, with her arms crossed over her chest. “Until you can control that temper of yours and keep your blood pressure down, the only people you are going to be seeing are myself and Roger. He is bound to you. He will have a calming effect on you.”
I need to get out of here. I get up and walk as calmly as I can to the door. I open it and walk into a wall of nothing. I can see through it, but I cannot walk through it. I turn around with a look of disbelief on my face, and I find the Doc staring at me.
“There are witches in this world too, Angela. I am one. As long as I say you will not leave this room, the barrier will stay in place. This is for your protection as much as the others. Now, I mean it, doctor’s orders, back to bed.”
Just to spite her, I try to leave the room. Roger stands over by the door, but moves out of the way for me.
After a few attempts to leave the room, landing me on my bottom more than once, I give up. Roger is finding this way too entertaining for my liking. Rather than dwell on the things I cannot change, like getting out of my bedroom, I decide to question Roger about being a werebear is, and what exactly that means. In addition, I want to know more about the link he has to me.
It has been twenty-four hours since the bombshell that I am a vampire was dropped on me. I am struggling with the fact that Vampires and Were-animals exist. The fact that I am a vampire has totally blown me away. I sit back on the bed and Roger joins me, the doc has left the room. I question Roger about being a werebear.
“Does this mean you actually change into a cuddly bear?” I have a grin a mile wide, I do not have a clue why I am trying to bait him, but it feels good.
He flexes his hand, and I see the fur flow over it, massive claws growing out of the ends of his fingers. Roger sees the look of wonderment on my face. In a gravelly voice, “Go on, I know you want to. Have a feel, babes.”
The fur is soft and warm, but the claws are very sharp to the touch. The fact that he can control how much of him changes is cool, but I am under no illusions. He is definitely not a cuddly teddy bear. He grabs me into a hug and squeezes, making me squeal, aloud with laughter or surprise I am not sure. However, he is ever so gentle with his hold.
I hope you enjoyed my little teaser 🙂
