4.21 Crossed the line

A month later

Blair was lying on the stone bench in the graveyard waiting for Adam to appear when he heard Daphne’s voice, “Look at the state of you. Blair, go home clean up and make love to your wife.”
He mumbled while still lying there, “Need Teddy must help Estevan.” His only thought was Teddy and how much he loved her. He wanted to be home but this was something he needed to do.

David had heard what was going on and came over, “Son listen to your Dad you are in no fit state to help anyone. I’ll watch the grave until the man comes back.”
“My Dad’s dead, he can’t help.” Then he passed out.
“Sweetheart, get Estevan and I think you better hurry.” 

Dawn was sat on Estevan’s lap kissing him, “You know this is not how to do the wedding invitations.” Estevan smiled.
“I know but its good practice for the wedding night, don’t you think.” 

Estevan returned the kiss and replied, “Does that mean we can get a lot of practice in before the wedding.” Then he pushed her onto the sofa looking into her eyes, “Any ideas how this night of ours should go?” Dawn was about to answer when the door opened and they heard a cough, “Sorry to interrupt you but Estevan you need to go to the graveyard.”

Estevan and Dawn straightened themselves up and he asked, “Why? What’s wrong?”
“One word Blair. He looks like a tramp and he is losing it.” 

Estevan knew he had to go but not before kissing Dawn goodbye, “I’m sorry I have to go but I’ll be back as soon as I can.” Dawn whispered to him, “Make it soon because I was enjoying our discussion.”
When Estevan got to the graveyard, William and Blake were waiting. “She came and got you as well?”
They both nodded and Estevan took one look at Blair and couldn’t believe the state he was in. “Come home and let the police deal with this.”

Blair quietly said, “I can’t I owe you.”
“You owe me nothing but your wife needs you right now.”
Then Blair had a hurt expression on his face, “I tried to talk to her but messed up again. She didn’t recognize me and she looked weak and ill.”
“This is why you need to come home because you are both suffering.”
“I will when he is caught.” 

Blake hated doing this especially as the pair never got on but he had promised his Dad he’d make more of an effort, “Dad is right we will get him.”
Blair finally sat up and spoke, “Then why is he not here? He has visited the grave at the same time every day but now he is late.”

Lexy had just finished writing the statement up from William. After Adam had tried to coax Art to his vehicle, William demanded something to be done. This guy was fast losing it and William had warned Lexy he could only keep a lid on his temper for so long. Lexy knew that Adam had crossed the line by going after a child. She had just pressed the send button when she heard a noise coming from downstairs.

She slowly made her way down the stairs and looked around. Lexy couldn’t see anything but her senses told her that she still wasn’t safe. As she approached the kitchen she heard another noise coming from the back.

Blake had to sit back on the stone bench. The pain was getting worse, “What’s wrong?” Estevan asked.
“My head hurts badly.”
“What have you done?”
Blake said with concern, “Dad I don’t think it’s me.”

“Adam it’s all over, you are going to prison. Don’t make things worse.” 
Adam came up behind her and coldly said, “How will it make things worse?” 

As Lexy turned around to face him he punched her before she could react, causing her to fall to the ground. Lexy was now bleeding from her lip as she tried to get up, the vampire in her wanted to finish him off but the cop in her wanted to arrest him.  

Adam screamed at her, “All you had to do was lock him up but no, you had to interfere and find that puncture and then letting Estevan out on bail. Do you think I’m stupid, you think he is innocent?” 
 “You are the guilty one so get out of my house.”
Adam grabbed her before she could get to her feet and threw her across the room. “I’m not guilty as I have nothing to admit too.” 

The force of the throw across the floor meant Lexy hit her head against the kitchen cabinet causing her head to start bleeding. 

He walked towards her as she lay still and crouched down beside her and punched her again while she lay there unconscious and said before leaving, “Let’s hope the police get the message now.”
After exhausting pleas for Blair to come home; Estevan and the boys decided to stop at Lexy’s place to see if she was ok and convince her to arrest Adam. When they pulled up Keith was outside looking angry. “Keith, why are you here?” He looked at the floor then back to Estevan, “Lexy was attacked tonight but regained consciousness to say it was Adam who attacked her.” He paused for a moment, “She has been taken to the hospital…He overpowered a vampire.”

Blake saw red and pinned Keith to the wall, “This guy frames me then Lexy proves me innocent. You go after my Dad. This guy tries to take my nephew and now Lexy.” He let Keith go, “If you had done your job right none of this would have ever happened better still if you allowed us to handle this it would have been over by now.”
Blake walked off but Will called after him, “Where are you going?”
“First I’m going to make sure Lexy is ok then I’m going to help my Uncle rip Adam a part limb from limb.” 

As Blake walked off Estevan shoved Keith and warned, “Now do the right thing and get this guy or the blood will be on your hands not ours.”
Keith looked scared but calm, “He attacked one of our own. If anything happens to this…” He thought about what he was about to say, “To this Adam, the paper work could get lost.”

Blake looked at her lying in the bed and kept asking, ‘Why pick on her? Yes she was a cop but that was no reason.” He was angry that he lied to her about his feelings for her. Blake promised no more relationships yet here he was torn in two because in reality these feeling for Lexy were getting stronger by the day. He did the one thing he never thought he would do and that was contact Blair. He had been learning over the weeks to connect long distance through the mind and here he was about to put it to the test. ‘Uncle Blair, can you hear me?’
‘What’s happened?’ Blake could sense a change in Blair’s mood as it grew darker.
‘Adam attacked Lexy. She has bruises on her face.’ The only response he got from Blair, ‘Ok.’
Blake was stunned that he never asked if Lexy was alive but decided not to push Blair in his current mood.

Blair hadn’t been on a hunt like this since he was in his thirties and the chase to him was as good as the kill. What he had never had to rely on were other people. When he fell in love it had never occurred to him how strong his bond was with Teddy and breaking the bond while still in love could affect both of them. He watched as Adam approached the gravestone and bragged how he left Lexy for dead.

Blair’s temper was getting worse as he thought back to when Teddy was hurt by her ex. His mind then switched to this man who had set up his brother. He may have given Estevan a hard time but that was his right as a sibling but dare anyone else cross the line and they were going to pay. Then he thought about Teddy again and how Adam was responsible for him having to leave her and their daughter. He had turned his life around because of his family and now he was back to hunting. Blair hated having to do this but Adam was a pest that needed to go quickly. His anger had got to such a point that his eyes had turned red. 
Estevan had had just entered the graveyard when he saw Blair’s eyes turn and knew what that meant. He tried to connect with Blair but he refused to answer Estevan.

Blair slowly crept towards Adam while he continued to boast to Sam’s grave. Tapped him on the shoulder and when he turned around Blair grabbed him by the throat and angrily spat, “Adam you crossed the line.”


  1. My favorite part in this was when Blair thought "that was his right as a sibling" to get on Estevan's case. LMBO. Really love that.

    Good for you, Blake, in finally realizing your feelings for Lexi consciously. Of course, it took her being knocked UNconscious for you to realize it, but hey... better late than never!

    As soon as Lexi walked down the stairs to that dark room, my heart started racing. C'mon, girl! Ain't you a cop? I guess she just felt too comfortable in her own home, and she thought she could overpower him due to her vampire abilities.
    Yet... Adam overpowered a vampire?! wow. I'm glad I'm not the only one that realized the implications of that since Keith said something about it too. (I think?)

    That dude's doomed, Adam that is.

    1. Mypalsim,

      Blair I think is starting to realize that Estevan means a great deal to him. As for Blake he is starting realize his feeling for Lexy but I think he will want to take things slow this time.
      Adam just sees an opening and takes it and doesn't care he is human and they are vampires.

      Thanks for reading :)

  2. Boy! You better not mess with any of Blair's family!

    That Adam is so low! He dared to go after Lexi! I guess after going after a child, I shouldn't be surprised by what he does. I wonder how he was able to overpower her. Whatever Blair does to him he deserves! However, I have the feeling that he will put up a better fight than they expect. At least now Keith is on their side too!

    Glad that Blake realizes his true feelings for Lexi now. Almost losing someone can do that for you!

    I hope that it won't be too late for Teddie when Blair does return to her. So much action! A really good chapter Lucky!

    1. Daisies,

      Blair wants to protect his family and does it the only way he knows. Adam is unraveling at the seams and is trying anything and everything to win.
      Blake does have feelings for Lexy but is only now starting to realize how strong they are. Teddy is missing Blair, I just hope they are still loving towards each other.
      Glad you liked it.

      Thanks for reading :)

  3. Blair needs to "take care" of Adam! He is pure evil!! Blair needs to take him out then get back home to Teddy before it's too late for both of them.
    This was a great chapter!! Yay for Blake realizing his feelings for Lexy!

    1. Kelly,

      Blair is prepared to sort this out once and for all. You are right he needs to get back to Teddy and quickly. Blake is in Love with Lexy and is starting to notice it. Glad you liked it.

      Thanks for reading :)

  4. Oh man, I hope Lexy pulls throigh. I still think Blake should take his time before jumping into the next relationship. Damn, Blair, he's one angry vampire I don't wish to cross. So how did Adam overpower a vampire? Is he a supernatural of some sort?

    1. Val,

      Blake I think will take his time with Lexy. Blair is really angry and when he gets like this only trouble lies ahead. Adam just takes his opportunity and so far has lived. Blair being very weak could be damaging for Blair. (Adam is human) lol

      Thanks for reading :)

  5. Methinks Adam is in trouble!

    1. Misty,

      I think you maybe right about Adam

      Thanks for reading :)

  6. I'm glad Daphne found Blair, I hope Teddy is okay. I wonder if Lexy will pull through, bleeding from the head sounds mighty serious. Adam overpowered a vampire... is there something about him that allows him to do that? Vampires are supposed to way stronger than humans. Hmm... LOL.
