Nesrin hadn’t discussed her past experiences with anyone outside of her therapist and she didn’t know if she wanted to with Warrick. She shrugged her shoulders. “No, nothing terrible. I’ve never been comfortable around your kind. When I was little my mother had to plan our outings to be sure that I wasn’t around vampyres. It was a huge stress on her. My brother and sister were fine but I would puke at the sight of one of you. As I got older I learned to hold it in and started seeing a therapist. She tried regression therapy and it made it worse. I started having dreams about being killed by a large group of vampyres. I was chained up on a hill and they…”
Nesrin paused. Even though they were figments of her imagination, it had always felt real to her. The first time she’d had the dream her brother had to knock her out because she’d become so fearful and violent. She looked up at Warrick and she recognized the look all to well. The few times she had told anyone about the dreams they looked at her like that. Like she had told them the worse experience she’d ever had, but in reality she was crazy. Dreams weren’t real.
Warrick sat up straighter in his chair. “Do they only bleed you dry or do they do more?”
Nesrin shifted uncomfortably; she knew that it was because she’d stop talking that he was curious. “One does more. He’s old, grossly muscled and his eyes remind me of a viper’s eyes. I can feel him touching me and I…”
Warrick stood up quickly, came around the desk and unexpectedly hugged Nesrin. “You don’t have to finish. I’m so sorry I asked. It’s possible you are remembering a past life through dreams, but know that no vampire will ever touch you as long as you are employed for or know me.”
He let go of Nesrin and left her office. She shook her head. His abrupt departure and comfort had been enough to make it spin. She looked over to his office and noticed the door was closed. AS she watched longer she noticed office supplies and papers flying about the room. She rubbed her knuckles. What in the hell had just happened?
