Caroline began pacing, her fingers twitching. “I—I am still hungry.”
"It will fade. You are new to this…" Elijah reached for her, taking her hands and drawing her close. "Do you trust me?"
She stared up at him and swallowed tightly, the faint taste of blood still warm on her tongue. “I do.”
He pressed his forehead to hers. “I will teach you control. If you want never to kill, then I will teach you, but you must trust me, you must do as I say in this matter.”
"I will." She nodded. "I do not want to kill. I just… I—The hunger, it feels so… heavy.”
He raised her hands up and he ducked his mouth to them, sucking the tips of her fingers between his lips. “And you will be fed.”
She watched him and felt his tongue as it swirled around her fingers, lapping up every drop of blood that lingered. When her fingers were cleaned, he found her mouth and he sucked the blood from her lips, her tongue, and he licked it from her chin.
A new hunger replaced the old one and Caroline did not pause as they stumbled back toward the bed.
