The One Thing, a morganville vampires fanfic | FanFiction
“You've turned into quite a bossy little thing," Myrnin said. tags: bite-club, claire-danvers, driving, morganville-vampire, morganville-vampire-series, morganville-vampires, myrnin, myrnin-and-claire, vampire, vampires. tags: claire-danvers, driving, morganville-vampire. Myrnin knew that the dynamic of the relationship was changing. Logically he knew much of Claire's recent discomfort was likely caused by but he could not help himself, and simply had to know what was going on. While Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and I adore how Rachel Caine clarified Claire and Myrnin's relationship.
He paced the lab, nervously checking the pocket watch he had found while organizing the lab. He finally heard her heartbeat, from the end of the road, an hour late. He found he was suddenly and uncontrollably angry. The fury in his voice shocked even him.
He heard Claire pause on the bottom step. In fact, she sounded He found that that infuriated him even more. Some part of him realized that her recent distance from him was affecting him more than he originally thought. The smell of his own blood hit him, and he dropped the newly shattered pocket watch to the floor.
A shame, she would have liked it. He took a deep, unnecessary breath.
Claire, as quietly as a human could, walked over to the lab table she had claimed months before. She had told him he wasn't allowed to touch her experiments, but she never seemed too angry when he did. He tried not to, but sometimes he just knew how to make it better. Several hours passed, or maybe just minutes time seemed to run together, in complete silence.
If you discounted Claire's continuously beating heart, the sound of her breathing, and the general clinking sounds she made as she worked on her most recent experiment. There was a begging note to his voice. Claire glanced over at him, a neutral expression on her face. Too late to turn back now, he continued, "please, just tell me what's wrong. What have I done to upset you?
She turned away from him quickly, but he already moved to the other side of her. He grabbed onto her arms, tight enough to not allow her to turn away again, but loose enough to be painless. He found he felt as though he may start crying as well.
She wouldn't look at him. Please," Myrnin begged again. One hand reached up to brush away a tear that had escaped her eye. She jerked away from him and, defeated, he dropped both hands and took a step away. If you want to leave you may. She took two steps away, then paused. And then she said the one thing, the one thing, he truly did not wish to discuss with her. Myrnin did not turn to face her. She did not turn to face him. He could have sworn in that moment his unbeating heart skipped a beat.
For a panicked moment he thought she was referring to just the previous evening when he had watched her as she slept, but then he realized she was referring to the night had told her he was leaving. He was avoiding the question and they both knew it.
He heard her whirl around to face him, but he still couldn't bring himself to face her. Every emotion bubbled together into a furious statement, "I never said that I didn't care about you.
You said you only liked my mind, and then you kissed me.
He said nothing, just stared back at her. How do you tell someone you loved them?

That the only thing you look forward to is seeing them? How do you tell someone that it kills you every day to see them with another man because you know they will never love you back? But you don't ruin things by kissing them either, which he already did.
He had ruined everything. He could have lived with her friendship but not this. Not this cold distance. When he didn't answer Claire shook her head sadly, and wiped her eyes with the back of her hand. She sniffled, then turned around and started up the stairs. It was a miracle Claire heard him. She froze halfway on one step. He kept his head down, fairly certain his gaze may just burn a hole in the ground.
She was still standing on the steps, facing away from him. He saw her shoulders move up in a small shrug.
- Myrnin's Tale
Her hands were trembling but then, oddly, so were his. Myrnin met her halfway. It seemed different to him this time. Not as though she were truly asking a question she didn't know the answer to, but as if she needed to hear him say it. He lifted a hand to brush away the falling tears. She didn't pull away from him this time, in fact, she leaned into his touch ever so slightly.
The door was swinging open, eliminating the need for Claire's brass key. Myrnin was sat on the floor cross-legged, with his ancient reading glasses perched on his nose, and Bob the pet spider roaming his head. Myrnin did not seem bothered by the arachnid, and continued to read. Todays choice of clothing was typically eccentric, emerald green velvet trousers, a pirate-style red and black stiped jumper, and a long black leather coat. He was in his new fanged-bunny slippers, after his original pair were sadly destroyed in a very disturbing incident, which none of them mentioned much, due to the tragedy in Myrnin's eyes, Claire didn't care that much for the slippers of it.
The reason for that would have been Shane 2 months ago. But times had changed. That boy, Myrnin thought, used to prevent me from her.
There's nothing to stop me now. Closing the book and dropping it on the floor with a slam, and no regard for the fact that it was most likely over 50 years old, he stood and strided over to carefully place Bob in his cage.
She began to move away in protest, but his firm grip on her arms and the unexpected sensation of desire changed her mind. Biological- that was one way of putting it.
Suddenly, Claire came to her senses, and was reminded guiltily of Shane. And to think that it's come to an end makes me sad. But Rachel Caine did the series justice with this final Morganville book.
While Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and her friends are looking forward to coming home.
And while it sounds like salvation—even for the vampires themselves—the truth is far more sinister and deadly. Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end Claire Danvers left Morganville only to find that life outside of Morganville wasn't what she wanted. Despite how crazy Morganville is it's her home.
But the home she left isn't the same when her and her friends come back. Claire Danvers is one of the strongest, selfless, stubborn, caring all around amazing character. Looking back at who she was when she first came to Morganville to who she is now at the end of this book is amazing.
She has grown so much and the great thing about this series is you never missed that growth. You always got to watch it happen. I can not be happier with how Claire's life turned out. She went from this terrified young girl to a strong young woman. Morganville isn't the town that Claire and her friends left behind.
Myrnin And Claire Quotes
Amelia is no longer in charge the Daylight Foundation have taken over. A group determined to 'cure' the vampires. The feel of this book was very different from the rest.
Which makes sense considering things are so different. With all of the vampires trapped in Fallon's 'enclave' and people no longer living in fear you'd expect the feel of the town to be different.
