Summary: Can you truly trust someone or do you need a safety net for it sometimes, especially when it comes to a vampire? Vicki POV
Notes: Missing scene for “Heart of Fire”

by Belladonna

I trust Henry. Implicitly.

I know he doesn't kill when he feeds, no matter what Mike thinks. Or anybody else for that matter.

Henry told me so himself and I believe him.

He's my partner and my friend and he'd never lie to me. He wouldn't betray my trust like that.

So what am I doing now here, holding this thing in my hands? The very thing that has hurt Henry so badly and still has the power to do so again? Why am I holding onto it instead of destroying it? Why am I planning to keep it?

I could say that it's just because I don't want it to fall into the wrong hands. That I'm keeping it to protect Henry from it.

But is that the truth? Is that the only reason? Or do I need a safety net for trusting him and deep down maybe think that when it comes to it one day, I might need it? Need it against Henry?

He would never betray my trust, of that I'm sure of.
But what about me?
