Jules continued to listen to him, giving him her full attention. She could not imagine what he was going through. His people hunted for sport and for treasure. "Your secret is safe with me, I promise. Are there many of your kind left? Family? Friends? There should be a way to protect the rest of your kind. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. And if anyone tries to hunt you, I will kill them myself first.
As the food came she was silent as she ate her meal, the gears in her mind turning. Rin was so powerful and yet he still had picked her as his mate. There must be some strength he saw in her, but still she was only a mortal human. She was sure he must have had other lovers across his life span. Ones more worthy than her. She instantly felt jealous and wondered if some of his exes were still around. Jules shook the thought from her head, trying to enjoy what little time they had left together that day.
"I am pretty sure I mentioned but I will be home late tonight, if at all. I might need to spend the night in my shop if my patients need me. I am on call after all." She finished up the rest of her meal. That was when her hairs stood on end. She could sense something. Before she could say anything a gunshot was heard and Jules felt a pain in her side. Warm blood spread across her white dress. "I...." and before she could say anything else her world went fuzzy.
