Burning - Full Wrap


Stephan flung Miss Austen’s novel to the floor. Not that it was not entertaining. It was, even skilled and insightful. But the book he wanted to read was laid out before him in a coma, unreadable. He thrust his hands in his pockets and slumped in his chair.
Her situation irked him, to say the least. What awaited he r if she wakened from her coma? She had no parents living, else her uncle would not be her trustee. Now her guardian lay downstairs with a weak heart and a tenuous grip on life. What would happen when e ven this one person who cared for her was denied her? Van Helsing would return tomorrow. He could keep Van Helsing out of her room, for a while. But if she recovered? With a lout like that in th e house, was she safe? And then there was the fact that she was suspected, however stupidly, of murder. Stephan chewed his lips.
Only his sharp hearing would have detected the low moan. His eyes widened in shock. Her eyelids fluttered. He dove from his chair to his knees beside her bed and began to chafe her hand. She moaned a little louder. She was waking! Thank whatever gods yo u choose, he commanded himself. He would not be spared damnation, but at least his crime agains t her, whatever it was, might not be irrevocable. She was about to come to consciousness.
He jerked his hands away from hers. She would not like t o wake to being touched. A stranger by her side? Not reassuring. Especially one whom she had last se en covered in blood and whirling darkness. But there was no one else. And he could not let her wa ke alone.
He mustered what he hoped was a reassuring smile.
