That kicked me completely out of my mental zone, and suddenly I became aware of the burning in my legs, my heavy breathing. I dropped out of gear and gradually slowed down until I was walking. In the blue light of July predawn, Montrose Beach was deserted. It wasn't hot yet. That's why I was up at oh-God-thirty. Thomas slowed down, too, until we were walking side by side. His dark hair was pulled back into a ponytail. Like me, he wore an old T-shirt, sweatpants, and sneakers. He was one of those men who were so good-looking that it made people check around to see if they were being pranked. He was also a vampire. "Let me get this right. You pick me up this morning," I said. "We came all the way down here. We did six miles in the sand and neither of us said a word. The whole city is still and quiet. We've barely seen a moving car." "Yeah?" Thomas asked. I scowled. "So why'd you have to go and ruin it?" His mouth twitched at the corner. "Sorry to spoil your man time, there, Hemingway." "Nnngh," I said. We had reached the end of our last lap and were almost back to the cars anyway. I stopped and turned toward the lake and breathed. The weighted vest I was wearing pinched at something on my shoulder, restricting its movement, and I rolled it irritably. Far out over the lake, the blue had begun to lighten. Sunrise would be soon. "You sure?" I asked. "Very," he said. I glanced aside at him. The ideal symmetry of his face was stretched tight with tension. His eyes, which were sometimes blue, usually grey, were tinting toward reflective silver. I knew the look. He was Hungry. "How did that happen?" I asked him. He looked aside at me without turning his head and lifted his eyebrows. "Did no one ever have this talk with you?" I scowled. "I mean, weren't you careful?" "Yes," Thomas said. "And my kind are all but infertile to boot. Happened anyway."
