And pierce her skin he did.

Cord's fangs hit the soft flesh of Amanda's neck. Blood instantly oozed, but he pressed his mouth and sucked the crimson liquid into his system.

Amanda, feeling the piercing pain, woke up gasping and with her eyes almost popping out of its sockets. She felt the heavy weight on top her, she felt the restraining hands on her wrists, and she felt Cord's warm mouth on her skin. Alarm immediately flooded through her.

"Cord!"

She tried to push him back, but was met with a tighter grip on her wrists.

She had trusted him. Trusted his full capacity to control whatever was changing him. He had returned to his formal dark self -- that much she could deduce. Otherwise, if he was in his right mind, he wouldn't have placed her in this danger the second time.

"Cord!"

But the current priority now was not about salvaging her crumbling trust on him, but on how to stop him from drying her, dislodging those sharp whites and putting him back to his senses.

Amanda wriggled underneath him again, flailed her legs and even went as far as to kick his balls but those didn't work.

Masculine strength aside, he was just that strong.

She knew he was a strong man. It was one of the many qualities that attracted her to him. And exactly as the Master of Vampires, he had the power that couldn't be contested. They were just locked up, stored inside him and waiting to be unleashed. His shadows were just a tasteful addition.

Amanda feared, whatever locked up power he had, was already beginning to surface.

'If you think I'll harm you again, you are welcome to use your spells on me.'

She remembered his exact words the other night. He had permitted her to use her own powers to protect herself.

The big question now was, would she?

Amanda didn't think Cord would harm her again, but by the feel of his tight grip on her wrists and the intense sucking motion of his mouth, it seemed to be a different story.

She gnashed her teeth and frowned. She didn't want to use her petrifaction spell on him. She didn't want to hurt him.

"Cord, please!" she cried out. "Please stop! I don't want to use my power on you! Stop!"

Cord's bite didn't loosen and unfortunately, Amanda was beginning to feel a little woozy.

"Cord, stop!" she tried harder this time. "Cord! CORD!"

Tears pricked her eyes. She didn't want for their relationship to come to this. Here now was her karma for loving an enemy. Here now was the warning of her mother biting her back in the ass.

But she loved this vampire...this man, and that love could never be taken away from her.

"COORD!" she shouted on top of her lungs just as tears rolled down her eyes. She had no other choice now but to use her spell.

However, a miracle actually happened.

Cord's hold on her loosened and the feel of his fangs on her flesh disappeared.

Amanda felt a long exhale fanning her neck. A little displeased groan followed and then...

"I'm sorry, Amanda. I deeply am, " Cord's tender voice filtered through her ear.

He gathered himself up and looked at her with the most contrite face she had ever seen.

"I'm sorry it has come to this. I had broken your trust. I hadn't controlled myself enough not to hurt you again."

"Cord..." Amanda uttered, tears continued spilling down her face, soaking the downy pillow below her. Blood continued to ooze along the plane of her neck. It would have teased Cord with the sight, but this time, it didn't. It only disgusted him. Made him remember what god-awful thing he had done to her.

"You're right, you had broken my trust, " Amanda continued. She placed a soft palm on his cheek and wiped the little drop of blood smudging his features. "But I'm still here. Still alive."

"You don't know how much I feel ashamed of what I had don

nda gave her a confused look, but let herself be guided back to the bed. There was a certain motherly aura about this woman that she had picked up despite sensing her vampire condition too.

"It's my first time seeing you here, " she stated, unconsciously touching her hand that had a transfusion needle earlier.

"I'm Doctor Meralisa Wallish, the Vitalis Castle's physician, " Mera answered, giving Amanda a polite smile. "I don't come out often from my laboratory except for special occasions. You, Ms. Amanda, are inside my lab. Master Cord wanted me to take care of you after last night's incident."

"Last night's incident?" Amanda parroted, knotting her brows. She tried to remember what had happened and when she did, her expression fell. "Oh."

A part of her screamed to see Cord immediately; check if he was doing fine in the midst of this situation, but another part of her wished to give herself time. Time to heal so to say, both physically, mentally and emotionally.

"You need a whole day's bedrest if you want to fully recover again, however..." Mera paused and drew her eyes on Amanda from head to toe, "You're a witch. I reckon, you got super healing powers under your sleeve?"

Amanda shook her head and lightly chuckled. "No, we don't. Otherwise, my mother would have been healed from a common illness. Some witches use healing spells however, yet my mother hadn't taught me how to conjure it."

Mera's interest piqued. "You're not the same as those witches I have come across over the centuries of my life."

"Yes, I'm a unique one, " Amanda agreed, telling nothing more. She wasn't sure if it was right to spill her whole life to this doctor. She was still a vampire after all.

"No wonder the Master is so besotted with you, " the doctor mused.

Amanda didn't comment on that anymore. She shifted her attention to the wall clock past the doctor's head. It read nine in the morning.

'When would he visit her?' that was the question that lingered in her head, hoping she'd see him soon, but unfortunately, for the entire day, there was no sign of Cord at all and that continued until the third day.

At first, Amanda thought it wise to give each other some space. Plus, Noman visited the castle and had successfully diverted her attention momentarily.

However, Amanda realized that his behavior was getting ridiculous. She knew he was avoiding her again. It was clear to see and she was fed up with it. In the end, she decided to barge into the throne room with the intent of interrogating him.
