As promised, here is a teaser from Taming the Wolf!
Once Wade parked, he hopped out of the SUV and Adam and I followed. Downtown Buffalo could barely be considered a city. Its buildings were small and mostly sold hunting stuff and antiques. Even the theater was tiny with its square roof and bland plastered walls. If it wasn’t for the sign announcing what it was, you would have thought it was a warehouse.
“What are we seeing?” No matter how sad the building was, I was excited to see a movie in an actual theater instead of in my living room. I guess that explains how pitiful my life was. Not that I was a social butterfly before becoming a werewolf, but I did have times I’d have fun.
“You choose,” Wade said. “But we’re not here to have fun. We’re here to see how you do sitting in a room with humans. We’ll start here and see how you do just being around them and then we’ll interact, depending on how well you do.”
Great, so I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the movie with two pairs of eyes judging my bodily reactions. Maybe I could stuff my face with buttery popcorn and get lost in some hot vampire action so I wouldn’t notice being stared at for two hours.
“Fright Night,” I said pointing to the poster of Colin Farrell in a tight white tank top. Both Wade and Adam groaned as I began to walk inside the building. I stopped short as a thought came to me. I leaned closer to Wade, cupped a hand in front of my mouth and asked, “Are vampires real?” It seemed likely considering I was living proof werewolves weren’t just monsters fairytales are made of.
Wade sucked in a deep breath as if annoyed or pissed. “Yes, they exist.”
My eyes shot wide. “Seriously? Have you met any? Are they sexy and mysterious like how the movies and books interpret them?” I couldn’t keep the excitement out of my voice.
“Well,” Wade said, smiling. “They don’t sparkle.”
