Unfortunately, in more ways than one, Lollo
Atinude witnessed the destruction of Venice's heart and soul, and the absolute rejection of his honor. Lollo wouldn't have had it any other way. Venice was made for her and he belonged to only her, so his misery is her gain. Because sex-slave traders are pursuing her, Venice also represents safety for Lollo. Vampires want to use her body with violent abandon and drink her blood, often. Remaining near Venice keeps them at bay. Though he is her blood enemy, at least with him, she would be a mate... and not a Blood Wife.
