Beware of the Dream Stalker ...

Jenny leads Jo to a very beautiful suite that consists of a bedroom and full bath. Jo is automatically enchanted by it.

“This is just lovely! It reminds me of home.” Jo tells her godmother, giving her a huge smile.

“I thought you would love this room. Just make yourself comfortable—if you need anything at all Jo, please call me.” Jenny replies sensing something amiss with her goddaughter.

“There are so many things I am curious about in this land of my ancestors.” Jo informs Jenny.

“You will learn about this and much more. You have such a strong spirit about you. It is as if you have part of an incarnated spirit living within you.” Jenny states.

“My father has told me so much regarding that special gift of insight you possess.” Jo says with much admiration.

“It is a gift that I cherish. It has been an asset to my life.” Jenny explains.

“Therefore, I won’t try to pretend nothing is wrong. I have been having thoughts regarding Пожиратель.” Jo whispers.

“His interest in you as a vessel for his offspring, right?” Jenny offers right on target.

“Jenny, how do you know?” Jo inquires in surprise.

“Because, I have been thinking the same thing ever since our last conversation. He stares at you through a high-rise window. He does the same thing in the alley. It shows more than a mere casual interest in you.” Jenny answers.

“Have you said anything to Henry about this?” Jo is hoping for the correct answer.

“No, indeed—that would not be wise. And, I don’t know how long we will be able to keep this from him, either. Now, make sure your balcony window is locked tight. He will only come in if you invite him.” Jenny cautions.

“Just like a vampire, huh?” Jo asks.

“Exactly!” Jenny nods in agreement. “He can’t force this union. It must be desired by both parties. Once your training starts with Madame Zaire—you will be immune to his advances. But until then—” Jenny lets her voice trail off.

“I’m scared!” Jo confess.

“Don’t be. You have the ancestral blood of Вячеслав flowing through your veins. Once you are completely equipped for the battle—Пожиратель will be no match for you. No one will!” Jenny triumphantly states.

“This is true!” Jo cries, happy in the knowledge that she will have what it takes to protect her town.

“Now, get some rest—remember not to open the door to him. He will try to approach you in a dreamlike state. Don’t let him seduce you, promise me you won’t!” Jenny demands fiery.

"No, I won't" Jo answers.

What mischief will a full moon introduce?
What mischief will a full moon introduce?

A Very Uneasy Night …

After Jenny leaves, Jo prepares for bed. She finds a very comfortable nighty and sits at the vanity brushing her hair. Often she turns to took toward the balcony doors but finds no one is there. With relief, she continues to prepare for bed.

Jo closes her eyes and falls immediately into a dreamlike state. She sees a handsome man beckoning her to come to him. His voice is soft and seductive. It seems like a low, mystical chant.

“Come to me and be my love.” The voice says over and over.

“I cannot.” Is the reply she gives.

“Oh, come to me and be my love. Open yourself to me. Together we will explore new worlds.” The seductive voice assures.

“I cannot.” Jo replies to the phantom.

“You MUST come to me. You must let me in!” The voice is becoming more urgent.

“No!” Jo states firmly.

“Come to me and be my love.” The voice reverts to the calmer quality and tries to persuade Jo.

“No, I will not!” Jo’s voice becomes even stronger.

“Я буду обладать вашим сердцем” The voice says.

“я потомок защитника” Jo replies and the voice abruptly subsides.

Then at the foot of Jo’s bed appears a magnificent tiger. He has been observing both sides of the conversation and did nothing to interfere. It was necessary that Jo handles the situation without outside interference. Then, Вячеслав speaks.

“You have done exceptionally well, my beloved seed. You stood firm against our enemy.” Вячеслав responds with pride.

“Спасибо отцу!” Jo retorts sleepily.

“Your powers will be unmatched—even by your brother! In you, my blood flows as a snow-covered mountain stream travels in my beloved home country.”

“You honor me with your presence.” Jo says still very much in a total dreamlike state.

“Rest now, child! Your twilight will not be disturbed again! I Вячеслав have decreed it!” Immediately, he is gone and Jo drifts into a wonderful, restful slumber.

To Be Continued ...
