Characters do not belong to me.

Krista looked very different in bed.

Chase was used to seeing her defiant, refusing, angry.

But when she was asleep, she looked almost peaceful.

It almost made Chase forget how she refused to live the life of a vampire, refused to drink until she absolutely had to.

It was frustrating, yet so very Krista.

That was what she lo- liked about her.

Of course, Chase didn't have any illusions about this.

Over the past few weeks, she had developed a sort of affection for Krista, but she knew better than to think that this meant anything to the other woman.

When it came down to it, she was sure that Krista would kill her if she had to.

When it came down to it, she was sure that she wouldn't be able to kill Krista.

In a way, it was almost sad, but Chase had been through enough relationships to know that she didn't want another one.

The arrangement they had now worked perfectly.

No strings attached; that was how Chase liked it best.

Closing her eyes, Chase tried to force herself to sleep.

It was all for the best.
