The sight of her broken, bleeding body was enough to shatter him.
Connor dropped to his knees next to her battered form, his eyes seeing the damage but his brain refusing to make sense of the gashes, of the lifeless eyes that stared straight overhead. He didn't need to check for a pulse, those glassy eyes said it all.

A nest that would wait for another night.
"Vamps," Connor heard Gunn mutter after his dad got off the phone with the police. "See, the marks on her arms and neck."
Connor didn't care who had done it. Or why.

"I swear, Chlo'," he whispered to her and her alone.
