FFF: Wild Library

This one's for fellow writer/author/blogger Nadja Notariani, making use of one of my more, ah, popular characters from The Binder's Daughter... 

“Excuse me, do you speak English?”

Matthias raised his blood red eyes and examined the prey. “Vell enough.”

“Oh good.” The woman swept a lock of coffee-colored hair aside. Relief sweetened her smile. “I need help finding something and, well, my German sucks.”

Americans, the vampire thought. So… tasty. He lifted a finger to his nose, pushing up glasses that were not there. Then, he smiled sheepishly. “That is okay. Vhat are you seeking?”

Chocolate eyes swept the nearly empty library before returning to Matthias with a sparkle. “Why don’t I just show you?”

Feisty, too.

Ohhh, Matthias...'Dah-ling, meine liebchen! Ich hab Dich lieb!'

*Blushes* I just adore that Matthias. Can I expect another installment - or must I make up the ending? ha. If this chickie is going to 'wow' Matthias, she'd better have hacked into a computer system or be getting ready to share espionage secrets. Then, and only then, would my Matthias (imagine my nerve in even thinking to say 'my-Matthias' lol) fall for her. Gah! I love it...:}

I don't know, but I think there might be more to this little side story. ;-)

Glad you enjoyed it.

I like using these little Friday challenges that I've set for myself to sort of "fill in" some of the backstory that didn't/don't make it into the novels.

Matthias is a great character. :)

He certainly does seem to have a profound effect on the ladies. :-D

All I'll say is, 'I Can't Wait!' lol.
