Melinda Howard poured a potion into a small glass vial. She used a funnel, not trusting her unsteady fingers. It was her first time making this particular potion and if the results were anything less than perfect, the consequences would be fatal to the vampire standing in her kitchen.
An electrifying pulse shuddered down her spine at the thought of him and her heart quickened, her fingers quivering as she removed the funnel, the vial nearly filled. She let out a shaky breath and shoved her chin length chestnut bangs behind her ear, grabbing an already filled dropper and adding the contents within to the vial.
The mixture sizzled, a small plume of steam erupting from the vial before the clear liquid inside turned to deep red. Melinda smiled, relieved by the outcome.
She corked the vial and tossed it to the vampire.
It went high, threatening to fly over his head and crash into a wall. He deftly jumped into the air, caught it, and landed without a sound.
