Teaser Day! 💜🖤🧡
🎃 Last week was Scary Alana. This week…have some Scary Rose. 🎃
“Uh, Rose? Did you really call a ten-thousand-year-old queen a ‘psychotic idiot?’”
“She’s psychotic. And an idiot,” Rose said. “What else would I call her?”
“If you don’t want us all to die,” Erik muttered, his eyes wide, “queen?”
Rose rolled her eyes. “She’s not my queen,” she said, stepping past him.
He turned, watching as she unlocked the door to her bedroom. “Listen,” he sighed, “I have a little experience with…you know…psychotic people, and…”
Rose turned toward him. “While I appreciate the unsolicited advice,” she interrupted, flashing a sassy smile, “I have an injured girlfriend who needs blood.”
“I’m just saying,” Erik told her, “sometimes, it’s best not to…provoke.”
Rose took a step toward him. “I don’t play nice with evil,” she told him, “and if I’m forced to share a space with evil, I’m not going to pretend to like it.”
He nodded. “Okay, yeah, but,” he paused, wincing, “she’s just so…scary.”
Rose smiled, raising an eyebrow. “I thought Vikings were supposed to be fearless.”
He scratched at his collar, laughing nervously. “Nah, that’s just Kara.”
“Yeah, well,” Rose said, her smile fading, “that queen hurt the woman I love. She’s lucky all I did was call her a psychotic idiot.”
That glowing, blood-red haze overtook Rose’s eyes, and the table began to rattle against the wall.
A glass vase fell into floor, shattering.
“Because…if she touches Kara again, I’ll kill her.”
Erik took a step back. “Eyes, Rose,” he whined. “Eyes.”
