GENRE: Urban Fantasy
He had found his prey at last. From across the room he took in every detail of her face. The full lips, thin nose, and most of all the deep green eyes. Green like a dragonfly’s wings or the patina of moss on an ancient castle. His eyes traced the moon-pale curve of her calves, down to her stilettos. She had raven hair this time.
One hundred and ninety-four years had passed since he’d last seen her. That time when he’d killed her was different than the times before. He’d made it so when she came back, she wouldn’t remember a thing. Their times together, the power they’d shared, the life they’d almost had. She’d chosen another path. Taken pity on humanity, and decided she wouldn’t go through with their plan. And worse, she’d fallen in love with one of them.
So now, as he watched her, he took a moment to appreciate the beauty of it. She stood before him, waiting for the elevator, completely oblivious to the fact that she was being hunted. Totally unaware that though she may look human, as he did, she was not. And this time, there would be no temporary death. He’d discovered a way to end her forever. She thought of herself as human now, so she would die like one. Permanently. He’d taken her powers, her memories, her lives and her love. Over, and over, and over again. Now he would take the very last thing he could. Her soul.
