The downside to dating a Viking… 😂 (Especially when she’s as brutal as Kara. 😂)
Happy Teaser Day! ❤️❤️❤️ I hope you like it! ❤
“Look at you,” Kara said with a seductive smile, “commanding armies, as if you’ve done it your whole life.”
Rose’s blush deepened. She scrunched up her face in disbelief. “You may have forgotten, but I accidentally insulted an angry vampire in front of his peers.”
Kara lifted her wine-glass to her lips, sipping the dark liquid. “You and I have different understandings of the word accidentally, I believe,” she said playfully.
“It was an accident,” Rose said. “That doesn’t mean he didn’t deserve it.”
Kara laughed. “Don’t worry. He’ll be more…agreeable in the future.”
Rose’s eyes widened. “Kara,” she said hesitantly, “what did you do?”
Kara looked away, sipping her wine. “Zosime dances well, doesn’t she?”
Rose snatched the glass of wine out of Kara’s hand—which succeeded in getting her attention. Kara tried to hide her smile, but she was clearly amused. Rose reached out and grasped Kara’s hand—the one Kara had slyly hidden with the wine glass—and scowled. “Kara? Why are there blood-stains on your hand?”
Kara’s lips twitched. “Because there isn’t any running water down here?”
Rose frowned worriedly. “Please, tell me you didn’t dismember anyone.”
“I didn’t dismember anyone,” Kara recited, her light blue eyes sparkling.
Rose dropped her hand and rolled her eyes. “You’re lying. Aren’t you?”
Kara held her thumb and finger an inch apart and mouthed, “Just a little.”
“Kara!” Rose said, her eyes wide. “Why would you do that?”
“Because he attacked you. Obviously,” Kara said, rolling her eyes. She took the wine glass from Rose’s hand. “Relax. It was just a finger. It’ll grow back.”
“You cut off someone’s finger?!” Rose exclaimed. “Are you insane?!”
“A bit, yeah,” Kara said, taking another sip of her wine. She chuckled, as she lowered the glass. “Don’t worry. He assured me there’d be no hard feelings.”
“Yeah, I’m sure I’d say that, too, if you sliced off my finger,” Rose said.
