"I can lock you in anyplace I want." Tai chuckled while walking away from her.
"You can't do this to me!"
Tai yelled back at her. "I just did."
What was she thinking coming to this arrogant bastard? Now her powers were trapped in his house.
The doorbell rang startling Brandy. It rang again. It echoed down the hallway to the study Brandy was locked in.
Brandy pressed herself up against the door.
Even though her powers were trapped, her hearing wasn't. Her hearing was as sharp as any vampires.
Brandy's hands clenched.
It was her.
She recognised Celia's low silky smooth voice. Brandy didn't have much to do with her but was
grateful to her for breaking the vampires spell.
She wondered how Tai had known her but then again nothing Tai did or who he knew surprised her.
His eyes turned red when he heard the name Drake. It sounded like they had a past-an ugly one.
Brandy pressed her cheek against the door.
"If you haven't come to collect then what are you doing here?"
"She"s still here, why?"
"Let's just say, I'm trying to control things here." He sounded smug.
"You have no control over this"!
Celia"s voice cut through Brandy's temple. She pulled away from the door gritting her teeth.
"He will come after you and after what you did to him last time..."
Tai didn't let her finish and Brandy didn't hear what he had said to her. All she heard was the door closing.
How did she know that Drake and Tai had a past? She had to figure out a way to get out of here. Then another thought entered her head-the key.
She couldn't leave without it. If she got out of here, the key would let her know where it was hiding.
Brandy pressed her cheek against the door again trying to hear him but nothing. She did pick up him saying to Celia - "As long as she is in this house, no one knows that she is here. This whole house is warded."
That was a good thing, Drake wouldn't find her. But the house being warded was a problem. She had to get around those wards. Most vampires were very clever with their spells. They were laced with booby traps if one tried to tamper with them.
But that didn't stop her. She had out witted the most complicated spells before. Brandy had to get out-now.
Brandy placed both her hands on the door and closed her eyes. She concentrated on what it would feel like-the wind at her fingers.
A tingly sensation came down her arm and raced to the tips of her fingers. A small relieved smile formed on Brandy's lips. The door started to shake and she could feel the door give.
Then it was like her hands got slapped by a flexible ruler. Brandy yelped.
She narrowed her gaze at the door. Her palms were burning. Brandy pounded on the door with fists that were so tight that her knuckles had turned white.
"Hey stop that." Tai"s voice pushed her away making her almost stumble.
Brandy let out an angry huff.
"If you don't behave, I might have to take some serious action". The smug bastard thought Brandy.
She waved her hand in the air defiantly sending books crashing to the floor.
"Don't make me come in there". Tai was taunting her now.
She waved her hand again sending even more books crashing to the floor.
The door flew open.
Brandy stared into red eyes that caught her breath. She had done it now. There was no place to run. She tried to shift but nothing was happening.
His fury was burning her skin. Tai looked over at the books on the floor that were laying there in a heap with pages open in awkward positions like broken limbs.
"You just carelessly threw some expensive collections onto the floor."
The tight fist he formed on his side didn't make Brandy feel any better. She backed up from him and wondered if she could get past him.The double doors were wide open. She could be as fast as any vampire after all.
She had nothing to lose.
He caught her with one hand. "I don't think so" he breathed into her ear.
His hot breath sent quivers down her body. She could feel the heat in her own body rise. Damn him!
"Little girls like you need to be set straight." Brandy gasped.
She looked up into his smirking face and suddenly without warning he threw her over his shoulder. She screamed.
He sat himself down on the leather couch and placed her across his lap with her bottom facing him.
Brandy knew right away.
She tried to squirm herself free.
Tai just tightened his grip on her making her go still. He started to massage her bottom making her freeze. She held as still as a mouse. What was he doing?
His fingers were going near places that were making her face flush.
Then without warning he spanked her hard making Brandy yelp.
He massaged her bottom again.
"Stop it" she said through clenched teeth. Tai's fingers slipped lower still. She gasped. He chuckled.
She couldn't stop it, her body temperature was rising.
Again he spanked her-a total of eight times.
"You want more?" His voice was silk.
Brandy was trying to catch her breath and only manged a whimper.
"You want more, huh"? He chuckled softly in her ear.
"Are we going to behave and not throw my books around?"
"Yes" Brandy murmured softly.
"I don't think I heard you". He started to massage her bottom again.
"Yes" she said in a much louder voice this time. His hand rested on her bottom for a moment before letting her go.
She scrambled up and stood before him rubbing her behind. She glared into his lazy blue eyes that had settled on her body.
Brandy could feel electricity sparking . Tia was in the process of getting up to reach for her when the door bell rang. He frowned.
Brandy stood still. The door bell rang again.
"Maybe there is another little girl at the door" she smirked.
He just grinned back at her. "Then maybe we can have a three some."
She scowled at him.
The door bell rang again. Whoever it was was not going to give up.
Brandy just folded her arms around herself tight. As if she had any choice she thought.
Tai opened the door.
Tai didn't say hello or anything.
"I believe you have a few things of mine."
Tai slammed the door.
