I slowly stalked toward my prey. The animal within me was in control. But I was still in my human form. Still, it was like I was a panther approaching my prey.
The made vampire turned suddenly and caught sight of me. But it was too late for him to run. I pounced on him with the grace of a jungle cat and pinned him to the ground. He looked up at me with wild, scared eyes as I positioned the wooden stake over his heart.
He was just a kid. One of the younger ones I had seen. He probably hadn't even realized what he had been doing. But still, I had my orders.
" I'm sorry," I whispered. Then I plunged the stake into his heart.
I got up and lit his body on fire so that there would be no evidence. Then I pulled out my cell phone and Hunter on my speed dial.
" How did it go, Tigris?" Hunter Redfern asked.
" Target has been terminated," I stated flatly.
" Good," he said happily. " Now, come back home. And no detours."
" Yes, sir," I said before hanging up.
I gazed at the young boy's ashes for a minute. Then I shifted into a panther and started running back home.
