Samael had ridden hard and fast leaving the caves far behind before the coming dawn forced him to seek shelter....he found a small cave, barely large enough for him to stand up in....he carefully laid Annises body on the ground then lay down next to her...
I will stand by my vow my sweet....they will pay for what they did to you....she will pay
He ran his fingers through her lush red hair.....
tomorrow night I will give you the funeral you deserve....no wild animals will consume your tender flesh, no scavengers will pick your bones...

Khazar couldn't dismount for he supported the female unconscious ex-slave in his arms. Instead he looked with shock at the pile of shredded corpses and the grounds of what had been a savage fight.

He could feel Joanna slipping again, so he tightened his hold on her and looked around. "Whatever it was seems to be gone for now-our first priority still needs to be Joanna and the other injured." He said. "Let's get back to the inn, we'll decide what to do once the injured are taken care of."
Sephira listened as everyone expressed shock and dismay at the shredded bodies of the Nightwalkers-not necessarily dismay at them being dead, but at what could do such a thing. She was too disoriented to be able to see anything herself, and she knew that Vincent was right-get the injured back to the inn-and then decide what to do.

Reece hoped no one would find the pile of bodies and blood before the sun rose and hit the dead Nightwalkers. Once the sun was up, though, there would be no more evidence. He thought that a creature who left only one footprint, as Vincent had described, could only mean a supernatural creature. But of such a kind Reece had never heard.
"Let's hope it's gone or asleep now," he remarked. "I certainly don't want to meet it in our condition, and I am too tired to fight."

She fell asleep almost immediately after eating her soup.

"I'm fine." He said. "But I do need you to let the others know that we can go home now-the danger is over." At least he hoped so-he hoped whatever had attacked those vampires was gone-or that it wouldn't attack normals.
"Okay." She said. "I'll tell them." She ran back out of the basement and went first to the place where the men were staying, so they could get the wagons, and Vincent's horse ready. She then went back to the inn and told the other women to get everything ready to go. Everyone was happy to just be able to go home-not that they had anything against being in town, they were just more comfortable at the farm.
Vincent knew he needed to feed-but it would have to wait until he got home-and Sara would have to bow out-he still needed to tell her what her playing around with Tommy had produced-which would have both of them extremely happy.
He stood and checked Joanna out one more time before he left-noting that she was sleeping deeply, but not unconscious.
When he got outside, his men were busy loading the hitched wagons and the women were climbing aboard. "Tommy, you take Diablo-I think I'll ride this new one I acquired. The red horse was pretty punchy, and he liked that, but he didn't think it would take well to being led or driven. He climbed on its back and-after they all got settled-he led the way back to the farm.
