Today’s Brew: Mimosas
Please join me in welcoming WE OWN THE NIGHT to the Night Songs family! Callie and Tristan are back to resolve the issues they created in Because the Night, and Melanie and Ryder are joining forces with the Las Vegas crew, so to speak. We even have a happily ever afterlife.
While the series will continue, WE OWN THE NIGHT wraps up this particular story line. That doesn’t mean that these characters are done forever, they’ll just have fresh issues to deal with in the future.
I heard the door open softly, but I didn’t turn towards Tristan. He slipped under the blankets and pressed his body against me, draping his arm around my stomach. I didn’t say anything, but I snuggled against him.
“So many nights, I carried you in here and watched you sleep until I almost burned myself with the sunrise.” He murmured, playing with a curl of my hair. “I miss that.”
“That feels good,” I said softly. “I used to hate it when I woke up in here, alone. Now this is where I come to get away from you.”
“There are things I can’t explain to you about this world, but you’ll understand it once it happens to you,” Tristan continued twirling my hair between his fingers, and I wrestled with consciousness. “I know it drives you crazy.”
I turned towards him, resting my head in the nook on his shoulder. “What do you know about Cash?”
Shouldn’t Tristan know something about the other vampires in town? Maybe that was asking too much. It’s not like they handed out an updated directory every year. “Do you think that’s a good thing or a bad thing?”
“I’m sure we’re going to find out.” Something about the way he said it, he seemed a million miles away.
Before I had a chance to ask anything else about Cash, our lips met and we were speaking a whole other language. Tristan pulled me in close, his fingers so tangled in my hair I thought we may have to stay like this forever. My hands found their way down to his ass, his hips grinding against me in a way there was no question what he was thinking about.
I couldn’t think anymore tonight. And I just didn’t care.
