The detectives track down the twins and learn their past.
She needs to feed and you're endangering not just yourself but also her."
Alaron didn't answer his father but simply disconnected the call. Fiona looked at him with curiosity.
"What did he say?"
"He said to treat you well and make sure you get fed. Now come on," he said, grabbing her by her arm. "There's something I want to show you."
They had been inside a building that looked like a medical facility to her, only that it was much bigger and was eleven stories high. He led her through some security doors and finally pass a glass door into a lab.
"Draven and I have been working on the blood tablets that we've told you about. We had to run through many batches to perfect it but this here is the first batch that has successfully passed all the testing so far."
"Oh no..." she said, backing away towards the door. "I'm not some guinea pig!"
"It's compacted with blood type 'O' so it's user-friendly for all blood types and it's fortified with iron, zinc and an enzyme inhibitor x."
"What is that?"
"Well, I'll only tell you after you eat it," he said with a smile. "Don't worry... you're not gonna die. I won't let you. You know I love you too much to do that to you."
She eyed him warily. Did he really think she was this na__ve? She narrowed her eyes at him and glared at him with as much ferocity as she could muster.
"Stop that!" he said suddenly. Fiona blinked in surprise when she saw him massaging his temples in annoyance. "Fine fine... I'll eat it first. If I die, it's all your fault."
She continued glaring at him and watched in amazement as he simply put down the pill that he was about to put in his mouth. Fiona blinked again and saw the flash of annoyance on his face as he picked up the pill again. Curious now, more than anything, she focused once again on him with the sole thought of wanting him to put the pill down... and he did.
"Stop it! God damn it. That was annoying Fi. Where the hell did you learn that?"
"I... I don't know! I just did it coz I was angry at you."
"Fine. The bloody enzyme inhibitor x is a compound that serves dual purposes. One one hand, it stimulates our natural abilities... like for example, it will make me ten times more smarter." When she gave him a dubious look he rolled his eyes at her. "Cerebral monitors proved it. I solved a thousand different mathematical problems in under an hour. Now usually I will take at least a week."
"So for argument sake, that's true... then what's its second purpose?"
"We haven't found much proof to support the second theory yet... but it behaves in a similar way to contraceptives. Cool huh. Now you can eat it and not have weird Vampire-Wolf babies."
"I hate you."
However, Fiona accepted the pill that Alaron offered her. She looked at it and gave a long sigh.
"And this would make mating or whatever it is possible?"
"Maybe. It inhibits any foreign gene and I suppose venom too, from being catalyzed in your body. So it can work against the bite but so far we have not had any tests done on that yet. So I see you've volunteered to be our first test subject."
She gave him a sideward glance before swallowing down the pill.
The sudden burst inside her head hurt; it felt like a thousand needles were pushing through her brain. When the pain calmed, she felt a sense of satisfaction; her appetite was satiated but she wanted something else... like sex.
She lifted her eyes to stare at Alaron in shock. She could see that he was smiling.
"I'm right here if you want me," he said, leaning back in his chair. Fiona scowled at him. She was really trying to stop herself from moving towards him. It was then that she remembered that her power of suggestion would have been enhanced so she tried it on herself.
"I can wait until I'm home with Eian. This feeling can stop. This feeling can stop. This feeling can stop." When that didn't work, she tried another suggestion. "I am sexually satiated. I am sexually satiated..." She felt herself drawing a deep breath; her eyes fixed upon Alaron with utmost contempt and distrust.
The next moment, he w
