So let me see if I can come up with something…
She returned her concentration back to the plain white egg nestled in her palms, trying to focus on her spell.
“I meant no harm by asking,” the deep baritone voice interrupted her once again.
With a huff, Happi looked up from her task. A strange vibration began to consume her, first beginning in her chest and flowing outward until it reached all her extremities. “Are you a witch?” Looking into his face, she found she could not glance away. Surely, he was a witch, one that was attempting to use his magic on her.
Rich laughter filled the air of her normally quiet clearing. “A witch? What would bring about such a question?” the stranger asked.
Irritation fast consumed her. First this handsome visitor disturbed her practice, now he made fun of her question. “Go away, I need to perfect my spell work,” she grumbled. “I have no time for the charms such as you are trying to use upon me.”
His large hand closed over hers sending a jolt of electricity gushing through her. The egg in her palms began to glow a soft purple. Shock overwhelmed her. He was most assuredly a witch and a powerful one at that.
“Who are you?”
His hands gentled around hers, caressing her flesh with his thumbs, adding to the energy passing from him to her. “Who do you wish me to be?” he answered her question with a question.
Happi tried to remove her hands from his light grasp, but the magnetic pull from his soul to hers was too dominant. Instead, her eyes met his. Two round orbs the color of a sunset, purple, midnight blue, and orange, starring back at her. Her heart skipped a beat when two pearl white fangs dropped from their sheath.
Of course, who else could possibly have the power of seduction? “Go away, vampire. I have work to do.” She willed her strength to look away, to put a barrier up within her heart, to no avail.
“Do you really wish for me to go? I sense otherwise. Does the spell you are working on not have to do with finding your soul mate? Does the egg’s coloring not prove your incantation has been a success? Why else would a vampire enter the realm of witches?” His voice was as smooth and soothing as a salve to a wound.
Happi observed the egg in her hands the illuminant purple was now brighter than moments before. No! There was no such thing as a vampire being the other half to a witch’s soul.
