Sadly, I found myself drawn to the vampire, more so than the attraction I had for Austin Cartwright. That troubled me. It wasn’t as if anything could truly happen with Milos. After all, he was a vampire. One bite would activate the legendary curse. Did I believe it? Not really, but I wasn’t willing to risk it either.
Sitting across from him, I tried hard to concentrate, but I couldn’t focus. My mind kept drifting back to the scene by the pond. What if Milos was playing me? I couldn’t let my heart sway me, no matter how cute the vamp was.
“What’s going on with Kamila? Are you really spying for her?” I blurted out.
Milos clenched his jaw as he strummed his fingers against the wooden table. “Why would you think that? I told you I’m on your side.”
Actually, he never said it directly to me. I overheard Milos say he was supporting me. To Kamila. Didn’t that mean he was on my side?
“Just answer me. Please.”
He rested his elbows on the table and pushed the hair off his face. “Lilith, you don’t make things easy on a guy. Do you really want the truth?”
My gut twisted for the second time that day. “Yes.”
“Truth is, Maksim and Kamila thought it would be amusing for me to fake interest in you.”
“To get you in trouble. You’d be called in front of the Tribunal for breaking the main rule of Lorelei’s. They’d find you guilty, and you’d go home.”
Was I mad because Milos told me the truth, or was I mad because of the ugliness of that truth?
