Since my week is going to be a little crazy I'm going to go ahead and post my entries here in one big post. You can read them all now or read them one a day - - up to you ;D
These are inspired by the Blood Thief world, but not from Blood Thief directly. Enjoy!
“I’m going to hell anyway, it would be a favor,” he argued with the vampire as his eyes roamed over her, drinking in her preternatural beauty.
“What have you done to imperil your soul?” she licked her lips.
“What haven’t I done?” he asked, self-loathing in his voice.
“An example,” she demanded, examining her perfectly manicured-nails.
“Lust is one of the 7 deadlies, right?”
“Yes.” A knowing smile curled her lips, revealing white teeth and wicked fangs. His heartbeat had already stated his desire, but it was still nice to hear.
Unrepentant prey marched towards its predator. “I’m already damned.”
It wasn’t fair. She watched the bitch walk away with what should have been hers. Nobody should be that damned self-confident, that smug. Social custom was that a vampire visiting the territory of another should come bearing gifts. That bitch had the nerve to bring that tantalizing human male with her, offer nothing, and leave with him in tow. So what if she didn’t know local custom? It just wasn’t fair. The male had smelled so good, looked so tasty. Her teeth positively itched for him now. She’d have him before they left the island. He should’ve been hers already.
The weeds in his yard were a foot high. Dishes were piled up in the kitchen sink. Judging by the smell his trash should’ve been taken out days ago. He’d already called in sick. It was sort of true. He was in bed and sick to his soul. Why? Why did she have to be a vampire? She was the most intriguing woman he’d met in years, if ever. Dammit. A blasted vampire. He sunk further down into the pillows. He didn’t ever want to leave his bed again. Better to sleep his life away than face what lay ahead.
She rubbed the brass rail with a soft cloth, a smile lingering on her lips. Glass bottles full of various spirits sat waiting for thirsty customer on the shelves behind her. The polished wood of the bar reflected the myriad neon signs hung on the walls. This was all hers. She wished that her no-good ex would dare to show up here. Wished he could see how much she didn’t need him. Wished he’d have a run in with the vampire that had become her benefactor. She sauntered toward the front, flicking on the open sign and unlocking the door.
He dropped the motionless body, its heart silent, and wiped at his bloodied lips. Normally he drank from two a night at most, never draining them. Tonight he’d had seven and killed them all. He wasn’t even bothering to dispose of the bodies. Worthless pieces of trash, that’s what they were. He’d read their minds, seen the disgusting thoughts there.Thinking about his dead lover, he decided his gut felt nearly as heavy as his heart. He slid into the shadows moving toward his next mapped out target, thoughtfully provided to him by the sex offenders database he’d found online.
His new bloodline was going to be magnificent. He put the vessel containing countless vampiric essences into the safe with the others he’d accumulated, closed the door and spun the dial. He had enough now, combined with his rare blood, that the bloodline he’d create would be unparalleled. He would be a god among vampires. Legendary. Unrivaled. There was only one more vial to steal and he would be ready. Pleasure washed over him at the thought. The anticipation of drinking the blood of ages made the fine pale hairs on his arms stand as his goosebumps dotted his flesh.
Bloody bastard. That low-down, conniving, murderous, conceited jackass. I slid forward a couple of inches on the gritty concrete, groaning at the pain flaring from the gunshot-shattered bone in my hip. I’d kill him if it was the last thing I did. The mouth-watering smell of blood pervaded the air, but the aching trumped the hunger and it only served to anger me further. He’d set this up knowing I’d have to turn on my unconscious human companion in order to gain the strength to free myself before dawn. He wanted me to sink to his level. He was twice-dead.
