“Don’t you come any closer!” she growls, her expression nearly as fierce as his own.
“Either you’re telling the truth or you’re a very, very good liar,” he cajoles with a mischievous leer as he grasps her hands in his.

|“Hands off!” Jamal, rushing to Imani’s rescue, threatens Caleb. “You want to talk to Imani, you’ve got to deal with me.”
“Fine,” Caleb smiles, batting his eyes innocently. “So when did it become a crime to talk to somebody?”
|“You know she doesn’t need to be making friends like you,” Jamal bristles, then asks Imani if she is all right.
“It’s OK,” she answers nonchalantly, not feeling the need for Jamal’s protection. “The big nasty vampire is not going to hurt me. He can’t even figure me out. Besides, I don’t like being called a thief.”
“Your words, not mine,” Caleb remarks, still feigning innocence.
“So Stephen, Caleb, whatever your name is, let’s get this straight,” Imani emphasizes. “I don’t know anything about your ring, not yours, not your father’s, nobody’s. So you leave me alone.” With these defiant words, she walks back into the gym, leaving Caleb and Jamal to sort things out between themselves.
|“Well, you heard the lady,” Jamal admonishes.
“Oh, haven’t you just become the noble vampire,” Caleb sneers derisively, as Jamal, defending Imani’s virtue, warns him that Imani is a “nice girl” who “doesn’t need any hassle” about “something she didn’t even do.”
