Even though her embrace was reassuring, he could not shake the feeling he was going to kill someone he cared about. He was insane, he couldn't be trusted, and therefore anyone was fair game.
If they managed to find a cure, even just a temporary one, maybe he could hold out until all of this was finished. Even then he doubted it. He saw her neck, exposed...so close to his mouth. His fangs slowly extended, but he knew he was not hungry, he had just fed...and yet he wanted more. More of her blood...it was the sweetest he had ever tasted.
He lowered his mouth to her neck, fangs extended...and kissed her. His fangs retracted back, and he freed himself from her grip. He got up and pulled on his clothes, forgoing his now disgusting shirt, he simply put on his bullet proof vest instead. It was an obvious hint at what had just happened, but he figured Max and Seth weren't stupid enough to not figure that out anyway.
That is if they weren't already busy doing anything themselves. Travis actually hoped they were, Seth needed a release from all the tension and fear that had been building up in him, and Max was the best candidate for the job.
Travis had sure enjoyed his time with Rose, and he hoped Max might treat Seth to something similar. He needed it.
tears are mixed emotions, tears are more than teaaaaars
Seth grabbed her chin.
"You don't have to look away. Everybody cries. I'm gonna tell you something I should've told everyone a long time ago."
He reached into his wallet, and produced an old picture of a lot of men, all smiling in the desert. "This was my batallion. There's me, I was in charge. That boy right there, he was the youngest. He was killed first. I remember grabbing his hand, trying to pull him away from the lycans, and then I remember holding his hand, because it wasn't connected anymore. These two were killed by friendly fire in the chaos, and these three right here went missing. After my dismissal, I went to all 16 deceased's families, and told them what happened. They all hate me now. They asked, ' why them instead of you? Doesn't the captain go down with his ship?' I can tell you, if I could go back, I might choose to die to save those men."
Seth wiped a tear off his own cheek. "All those men were my brothers. At least, we were close enough to be."
"I'm gonna be blunt with you. We don't hate you because you're a Lycan. We hate you because you tried to kill us and then yourself. Well, you tried to kill me. Just capture Travis. And we don't truly hate you. It's just going to take a little while to regain my trust."
