"Help me up. They can't get me." Her words came out halted, between gasps.
"Stay still. I'll call for help." Sam slipped his hands around her slight build and stroked the hair from her face. "You've been shot. You need a hospital, you're going into shock."
She shook her head. "Bullets hurt, but they missed my heart." Delicate fangs flashed between her rosebud lips as she spoke. "My master is on the way."
He blinked. He'd landed in the center of a vampire squabble. Of all the stupid things he could have done, this topped the list. Eric, his alpha, would help Daedalus skin him. Scooping the female in his arms, he carried her back to his car while shaking his head. "There are other ways to settle differences besides guns. What if a human had been caught in the cross fire?"
One of the gunmen rolled onto his knees.
Without breaking stride, Sam kicked him in the head with a satisfying crunch. Pain raced through his bare foot and he grimaced, but the hurt was worth it. He twisted at the sound of screeching tires. "I hope this is your master. I don't think I can shift again so soon."
