Virgin Blood

As the blood combined with the taste of his climax in my mouth I felt a warmth grow inside me. Sitting next to the pale lifeless corpse I closed my eyes and enjoyed the fleeting sensation. Since being turned I found myself obsessing over and craving these short intimate moments. Just minutes before I had given this man a rush of endorphins that bathed him in ecstasy. This of course was followed seconds later by the sensation of my extended fangs plunging deep into his carotid artery.

The life of a vampire was not easy. Other then the brief and powerful response that occurred after a feeding our lives were relatively lacking in sensation. I was now immortal but spent my days longing for some pain or other stimulus to confirm my existence.

Come on Annabelle, its time to goSebastian prodded me awake from my blood induced trance.

Sebastian had been my guide during the past month as I learned the way of the vampire. Tonight was my final test to see if I was prepared to survive on my own. At night we walked among the living and you would be hard pressed to tell any difference. Unlike the tales of fantasy we are told in our youth, vampires are not horrible monsters with pale skin and long fangs. Well ok, we did have fangs but they retracted when not in use making us as normal looking as anyone else.

During the day we did take refuge as the sun provided an intolerable burn to the skin. Its not that we would burst into flames or anything but with the pain it caused we may as well have. With no need to sleep we spent our days filling the void as best we could until night fall. It was actually all a lot more boring then I would have imagined. Some younger covens that were still building their wealth put the members to work during the day in the darkened confines of their estate. Generally a coven would do this until the funds collected were sufficiently producing dividends to support the needs of the house. Being immortal, time was on our side and it took a relatively short period to become financially independent from the world.

The coven which had taken me in after my transformation was an old one. The group had long ago lost the need for income generation and now sat on investments worth billions of dollars. Every member of the coven had their needs provided for and in return were expected to submit to the leader and oldest vampire of the group Ulric. We werent quite sure just what period of antiquity he hailed from but Ulrics wisdom seemed to know no bounds. Generally he did not socialize with the rest of us. On the rare occasion that we did see him and not his right hand man Merek it was because he came down to issue an edict or punish a dissident.

Ulrics coven took great care of new vampires and I was made to feel very welcome after going through the painful and scary metamorphosis. From what I understood it had been quite some time since a new vampire was found and everyone seemed very excited by the novelty of it. It was still unknown who the vampire was that had released his venom inside me. Turning someone into a vampire required a conscious choice by the attacker to release this mystical fluid from their fangs. A normal encounter with a vampire concluded with the victim bleeding out from two puncture wounds to the artery in their neck. My attacker had not taken a single drop but instead infused me with the serum of immortality. I had obsessed over this detail for the first couple of weeks. However, with no prospect of satisfying my curiosity I let go of my quest and delved into learning the ways of the vampire.

* * *

Finding me curled into a ball on their driveway soaked to the bone as the rain washed over me, the coven had taken me into their home. A vampire can easily sense their own and there was no doubt as to what ailed me. As my body fought to survive the attack of the venom in my system a boy named Sebastian had watched over me. As I healed and grew in strength Sebastian had become my advisor and took me through the training which would help me survive this new world I was entering.

Tonight had been my final test I was left to go out into the night and seduce my prey. Luring him into a safe place I would disarm him in the most sensual of ways. Post orgasm was when a man was most vulnerable and this was the preferred method that female vampires used to collect their food. When I had initially been introduced to the process my previously mortal brain rejected the idea in futile modesty. It wasnt until the hunger grew to an all consuming compulsion that I relented and was helped to my first kill.

Unfortunately human blood was required for our existence and the lack of it would cause a painful and grotesque death. In a pinch animal blood could get me through a day or two but after that I needed a human host. I had tried to be selective in my hunting rationalizing the pros and cons of a particular target. In the end it was a lot easier to just select the most attractive targets as that made the rest of my night more enjoyable.

When we returned to the estate my coven brothers and sisters were waiting for me. Sebastian nodded to the group and I was overwhelmed with congratulatory hugs and kisses. This was a big moment in the life of a vampire. Although I had much to learn and centuries in which to learn it, I was now self sufficient and could choose whether to stay in the safety of the estate or head out on my own to chart my own path. Members had left before to try and start their own covens. This had not happened in some time and more then once they had crawled back to the safety and security Ulrich provided. I held no illusion about the extent of my abilities. I felt safe among my new family and had made a great friend in Sebastian. There was no way that I would be leaving the comforts of my new home anytime soon.

* * *

The coven had thrown quite the celebration for me after arriving home. Once the rituals had been performed and the festivities were over, the house returned to its normal quiet contemplation. Walking around the vast mansion I always wondered what was going through the minds of the other vampires. Very few of them were less then one hundred years old and many of them hand been on earth for closer to one thousand years. What kind of memories did they reflect upon? What had they been in life before they were taken?

The storied history that filled our walls fascinated me and I began to think about what future worlds I would witness come into existence. These thoughts that bounced around my head were interrupted as I felt the hunger begin to squeeze at my insides.

The hunger is a difficult thing to describe. It consumes you and dominates your every thought. You can feel it physically through your entire being. As the sun fell and night approached the hunger would grow and the tension at the estate thickened. You quickly learned that this was a sensitive time and you needed to be careful not to accidentally anger a hungry vampire. As a general rule a hungry vampire was a dangerous vampire and you could quickly find yourself in a battle for your life. Although immortal we still possessed some weaknesses.

The sunlight was painful on our skin but not fatal. A stake through the heart was probably going to sting like hell but would not end our lives. There were two ways in which we were truly vulnerable. Fire was something to be avoided at all costs and would end our lives in a very slow and painful way. Decapitation would also put a quick end to our immortal run. Vampires mad with hunger had been known in the past to attack one another slicing right through their necks with a blade or tooth.

Due to this loss of inhibition it was customary for the coven to disperse at sundown and hunt alone. Once the prey had been slaughtered and the thirst was quenched the lone hunters would return to the safety of the communal coven. During the course of the last month Sebastian had fed early and accompanied me on my kills, always staying a safe distance away. Tonight would be the first night that I would be leaving the house alone.

As I looked at the clock I visualized the image of a receding sun behind the blacked out windows. Soon it would be time to leave. I was nervous but felt ready. Sebastian had trained me well and I was confident that I could track my prey. I would soon feel the warmth inside me. This was my favorite time. I craved the warmth and was ready to pursue it.

* * *

As the rest of the coven gathered in the foyer readying for the evening ahead I went to check in with Merek.

So, your first night alone. Do you feel ready?

Yes, thanks Merek. Sebastian has been a great teacher and last night went really well. I am ready

Ok then. So where are you headed tonight?

I am going to head over to Aqua BlueI said with forced confidence.

FancyMerek smiled giving me a wink.

Well good luck. Just remember to not leave any evidencehe said in a more serious tone.

Of course. I promise I will be careful.

Each coven had their own way of covering their tracks. With people disappearing randomly around the world each day it wasnt too hard for us to blend into the statistics. The most important thing was to make sure and not leave any evidence or witnesses. Our coven had their own incinerator which we used do dispose of the left over corpses each morning. It was a surprisingly effective system that had allowed the coven to live undetected for centuries.

Sliding into the front seat of my nondescript black sedan I pulled down the long drive and onto the road leading into town. Everything about the hunt was designed to leave no lasting impressions. We used common cars and dressed to blend into crowds. Some of the more distinctive looking vampires even employed wigs and other elaborate disguises meant to cloak them from the memories of the humans as we moved among them.

I pulled into an empty alley across the street from Aqua. Parking lots often had attendants or cameras so I tried to position myself out of recorded view whenever possible. Crossing the street I approached the front door as an attendant quickly opened it with a warm greeting.

Aqua was one of the top three bars in the area for the beautiful people. These were generally men and women that had high incomes with little net worth. They desperately wanted to look like the glittering rich and be treated as such. Bars like Aqua had been designed to cater to these ego-centric high earners. The bar would role out the red carpet for you and would happily escort your entourage to the supposed VIP area while their hands reached into your pocket to relieve you from your hard earned cash. The thing about people like this is that they were some of the most physically stunning people you would ever meet.

The truly rich high net worth people of the world dont really care about the external approval of others and therefore usually look quite modest in their appearance. The wannabe rich cared deeply about others opinions and spent their time making sure their bodies, clothing, and possessions were the best that they could be. I liked hunting here because the men inside were the same kind I would have drooled over before my change. Once their mouth opened though it generally did not take too long for them to earn my disgust. These guys were full of it and that made it so much easier for me to use their body as I needed.

Scanning the bar tonight I looked around for the telltale signs of a single jerk. I tried to stay away from taken men whenever possible. Even when looking at the hunt from an evolutionary perspective I still felt bad taking someone if they would be leaving another behind. It sounded weird in my head as I considered this but the truth was that hunting for humans was very similar to hunting for any other animal. A good hunter respects his prey and only takes what he needs to survive. Humans, although they didnt know it, were not at the top of the food chain. They had a predator who lurked in the shadows deciding their fate with a cold cruel calculation.

* * *

My attention was quickly drawn to the end of the bar. Sitting alone and drinking a martini with his laptop open was a sandy brown haired hottie. Quickly assessing him as I had been taught it was obvious that he was a traveling business man, probably sales. No ring or tan line on his finger allowed me to approach with a clear conscience.

Hey sexy, is this seat takenI said in my most suggestive voice.

Yes, no, sorry I mean no this seat is not taken and yes you may sit here.

Already flustered I could tell that I had selected my target well. The man was quite attractive but I had the feeling his confidence didnt live up to the image he was trying to project.

So whats your name?

Steve. Whats your name?

My name is Annabelle and its a pleasure to meet you SteveI said offering my hand lightly to him.

As he reached in for the handshake I made sure to rake my fingertips against his wrist and palm suggestively.

Steve, I dont normally do this but my boyfriend just left me and I am really looking to forget him. Would you be willing to close that laptop, come with me, and help me forget?

Steve sat dumbstruck. It was every mans fantasy and generally worked really well at drawing them in. Usually this approach was so stunning that the mark would forget to tell anyone where he was going and could just vanish into the night with me. Nodding his head Steve finally spoke.

Yes. Holy shit yes. Let me just pay my bill.

I pulled a one hundred dollar bill from my bra and slapped it down on the bar.

Sorry Steve I dont think I can wait that long. Now are you coming or not?

Steve jumped up from the bar almost spilling his half full martini. As he scrambled to grab his computer I took hold of his other hand and led him to the front door with purpose. As we exited the bar Steve pulled me to a stop.

I valeted my car. Let me just find my ticket

I looked at him sternly.

Steve I told you that I cant wait that long. Now lets go get in my car. We can come back for yours later.

I pulled at his hand again leading him across the street. We hopped in the front seat and with a push of a button the engine roared to life. I pulled out of the alley and turned left heading away from city. As the lights surrounding us faded into a country darkness I felt a sudden pang strike me in my gut.

The hunger had come. I winced at the discomfort as the pain grew. I looked over at Steve who was trying to readjust his pants to make room for the obvious erection now tenting his zipper. I wasnt sure how much longer I could last before the hunger would take over completely.

Looking out the window I calculated that it was at least twenty minutes until I reached my normal area of solitude where I took all of my victims. The muscles in my stomach continued to tighten and my breathing quickened. I now knew that there was no way I was going to make it. I would need to take my chances in the car. I cant believe that my first night on my own I had made such a rookie mistake. I hoped that Ulric would forgive me for breaking the rule.

I assessed the road for a good place to initiate the feeding. Up ahead there was small gravel drive leading from the road to a pump station about twenty feet off the shoulder. The location was less then ideal but I would have to make due. Luckily this stretch of road was pretty isolated and the few cars that did travel it on a Friday night were unlikely to stop in the dark to investigate a parked or abandoned vehicle.

I pulled right on the gravel drive and pushed the brakes hard as the car slid to a quick stop. Steve looked at me with wide panicked eyes.

Alright Steve I am absolutely crawling out of my skin and cannot wait a second longer. I need you inside of me.

Unbuckling my seatbelt I licked my lips and leaned in pressing my soft mouth against his. My hand which was circling his chest quickly descended to the poorly hidden bulge in his lap. I pulled away from the kiss smiling at him. With two hands I reached down and unbuttoned his khakis. With a pull of the zipper his engorged cock sprung into my hands stretching into the now unrestricted space. Picking up his hips Steve helped me work his chinos down to the floor and I slowly started massaging the shaft of his man-scaped member. I could feel the excitement build inside me as I watched Steve climb towards orgasm.

Although as a vampire I no longer felt a lot of the same sensations as humans like I was left with the wonderful ability to feel pleasure. Well, a specific kind of pleasure. In the programming of our immortal DNA someone had been nice enough to leave our sexual desire firmly intact.

With my other hand I reached down to cup the source of his seed. With both hands I increased my intensity and watched Steves expressions waiting patiently for the time to strike. As I felt his throbbing push against my grip Steve reached down and grabbed my wrist.

Annabelle that feels so good. I really want to cum inside you. Is that ok?

I paused. I had never had my prey ask me this before. Usually with the offer of a handjob or blowjob the men were happy to dismiss my needs and revel in the attention. The hunger was starting to become unbearable but I thought that I could hold out and take advantage of this opportunity. Besides, my position would probably allow for easier access to the nectar I so badly craved.

Go for it Steve. Fuck me. I want to you give me everything you’ve got.”

* * *

I slid though the gap in the seats into the back of the car and scrambled out of my clothing. Steve followed quickly behind me. Without any foreplay Steve plunged his twitching cock inside me. Luckily the prospect of a good fuck had already lubricated my mound in anticipation.

Steve pumped away and I felt my intimate folds of skin start to tingle. This was a sensation that had been sorely lacking in my life as of late and I enthusiastically moaned showing him my appreciation. Now increasing his pace I was impressed with Steves stamina. I had thought that he was ready to burst when we were in the front seat. To my pleasant surprise Steve had more staying power then I anticipated.

Feeling his tip push against the sensitive bundle of nerves inside me I knew it was only a matter of seconds before I would reach my point of no return.

Oh Steve don’t stop. I’m going to cum.

Steve responded by increasing his force pushing deep inside my sensitive passage. With the involuntary flexing of all the muscles in my body I ached in anticipation. Grunting in testosterone fueled passion he gave one final deep penetrating thrust and exploded inside me. I clenched around him in a deep orgasmic release and waves of warmth like the ones felt during feeding washed over my body. I felt dizzy as he collapsed on top of me spent from his efforts.

We lay in each others arms for a few minutes until the hunger pains returned and I was reminded of my mission. Slowly opening my mouth I extended my fangs. Puncturing the carotid artery leads to a very rapid weakening and death. However, for a few moments after the penetration the prey can be dangerous and you needed to be prepared. I wrapped my arms and legs around him preparing for the inevitable struggle. Then with quick precision I launched my mouth towards his neck.

Steve let out a blood curdling scream and bucked wildly. Through my fangs I could sense his heart rate racing. Digging in my nails I held on with all my might. Quickly his strength faded and I could feel the heart rate slowing. Knowing not to let go too early I began licking at the ambrosia while holding my prey firmly in place. Once the fighting ceased completely I repositioned myself for the well earned feast. Closing my eyes I drank greedily as the warmth filled me. The hunger pains were gone and a sense of calm and well-being washed over me. It was because of this blood induced stupor that I missed the headlights of another car who had now come to check on our apparently stranded vehicle..

Oh God, Im sorrysaid the stranger in a shocked and clearly embarrassed tone.

From his point of view it obviously looked to be two horny lovers locked in an impetuous embrace in the back of their sedan. I froze as my mind raced for the right thing to say. Then I noticed a change of expression on the strangers face. He squinted as he looked inside the car. His eyes suddenly went wide and a look of panic filled his face.

The blood! He saw the blood! I quickly assessed the situation. I knew that I could leave no witnesses but with the naked corpse pinning me down in the backseat of a car I was in no position to give chase.

HelpI called out in the best damsel-in-distress voice I could manage.

Help me please.

The man paused for a moment and then leaped into action pulling the back door open.

Please get him off me.

Grabbing Steves ankles the stranger dragged his bloody lifeless body onto the ground.

As I scrambled out of the car I called to the stranger.

Please help me. This man attacked me. I tried to stop him.

I proceeded towards the stranger as I devised my plan of attack.

When he ran back towards me through the darkness and I caught a glimpse of my next victim. The horror of recognition took hold and my best laid plans were forgotten. My rescuer was not a stranger. This was a man that I knew well from another life. This man who now wrapped his powerful arms around me was a man that had filled my fantasies before my transformation. Ryan was a friend and the most amazing man that I had ever met.

Annabelle is that youhe said as he continued to hold me in a tight protective embrace.

Where on earth have you been? Weve all been looking for you. Are you ok?

I started to cry at the prospective of what I was about to do. What I had to do. There were rules for a reason and I risked the entire species if our existence was ever to be known.

I tried to steady myself through the sobbing.

Annabelle, it’s ok. I’m here now. I wont let anyone hurt you.

I couldnt wait any longer. The more he spoke the less resolve I could muster. I extended my fangs and wrapped my arms around him.

I had to do this. There was no choice. I knew the rules and I knew what had to be done. If I dont do this Ulric will punish me severely. He might even decide to end my life in a fiery blaze. I started to count down in my head

Five, four, three, two, one

With a quick plunge I sunk my fangs deep within his neck. Ryan screamed and tried to pull away. With all the concentration and focus I could muster I did the only thing that I could think to do.

As the venom poured from my fangs I knew I had broken a cardinal rule. We were not to inject anyone without the approval of Ulric. Collapsing in my arms Ryan and I fell to the ground. The venom was working. Ryan appeared catatonic as his body responded to the serum. The next three days would be a painful trial for Ryan. Not everyone injected made it through the transformation but what choice did I have. I couldnt kill the man that I loved. I sat watching Ryans body twitch involuntarily. I thought of the consequences of my actions.

I had to figure this out. If I brought Ryan back with me Ulric might kill him where he stood as punishment for my betrayal. I was not going to let that happen. Sitting on the rough gravel drive with Ryans perspiring head in my lap I began to think of a plan.

Paranormal Pleasure

JessicaEric whispered in my ear as we lay on the ground together.

You are like no other woman that I have ever been with. I love you more than I can possibly say.

This was hard to believe considering the three hundred and forty years that he had walked the earth however Eric had never been anything but honest and sincere with me. I felt his arm flex as he pulled me in close to him. Just yesterday this would have seemed like any other normal romantic rendezvous but now it was different. Now I knew who Eric was.

It was yesterday when it all happened. Eric and I had been dating ever since he helped me carry the groceries up to my apartment six months ago. I remember vividly how excited I was seeing such a handsome guy my age living just one floor away. Or at least I thought he was my age.

Eric was amazing. I had never met anyone so confident and yet so humble. He was an incredible listener and yet when he did speak his stories provided for endless fascination. It seemed like Eric had traveled everywhere and knew something about everything. This was more surprising of someone my age since we were usually broke and just getting started in our adult life.

As I laid there thinking about our story I could feel him getting excited again and my body responded to his enthusiasm.

After months of dating, yesterday is when his secret was finally revealed to me. I still couldnt believe how I handled it. When I saw those sharp teeth extend past his lips and his eyes changing color to a deep dark blackness, I just knew that their was something otherworldly about him. We had always enjoyed a kinky sex life and I particularly liked it a little rough, but I guess the endorphins were running a little too high this time. When I accidentally bit my lip just a little too hard and drew that small drop of blood our relationship changed forever.

From what I understand of it now, in any other circumstance he would have been able to control himself but the excitement that he derived from the scent of blood was very similar to the sexual desires he elicited in me. With all of his senses fully stimulated the smell of my blood was enough to push him over the edge and make him involuntarily show me his secrets.

Just the thought of that moment excited me and I rolled Eric over onto his back. I was not scared of him anymore, not that I ever really was. I was excited by the supernatural powers held beneath his pale skin. I kissed his lips, running my tongue over the sharp teeth that had looked so intimidating just a day ago.

Eric moaned and I continued my journey.

My lips moved down to his neck were I stopped briefly to pay him special attention. Using my much less lethal tech I provided a teasing bite to his neck and then continued down to where I knew he wanted me to go. Eric lay helpless on the forest floor as I controlled his body using the hands, mouth, and tongue. There was no doubt that he held many secrets which I was excited to explore but right now he was still a man and subject to the desires of his formerly human flesh.

* * *

The picnic in the woods had been my idea after what happened yesterday. I figured we needed time to talk and I picked our favorite spot deep in the local woods to show him that I still trusted him and was not afraid of being alone. What I knew about Eric now should have changed things between us but instead of driving us apart it had only brought me closer to him.

On the drive home I noticed that Eric was not his usually composed self.

Well, I hope you enjoyed your lunchI said mockingly to Eric as he still seemed to be recovering from the efforts of my tongue.

Um…yes….nice picnic you planned therehe said laughing.

I meant what I said back there Jessica. I really do love you.

I love you too Eric.

We rode the rest of the way home in silence except for the ambiance of the local radio station. When we finally arrived back at our apartment building Eric walked me up to the third floor.

I was going to come stay at your place tonightI said in a hopeful tone.

Not tonight. You have had your entire world upended in the past forty eight hours and I really want you to have some time to yourself to process everything and make sure you are ok with all of this.

I looked at him with apparent concern.

Dont worry babe. I am not going anywhere. I love you and want to be with you but before you commit to learning about my world I want to make sure that you are ready for it. Take tonight to yourself and go to work tomorrow. I will talk to you when you get home. Ok?

I guessI said in a jokingly unsatisfied tone. Thank you again for going on a picnic with me.

Eric laughed.

No, thank you. That was some picnic!

I pulled out my keys and entered my apartment. Eric was right, the last two days had been quite the bombshell. Now that I was back in my apartment by myself I felt tired.

Some relaxation was in order so I changed into this evenings comfy clothes and headed to the kitchen for my nightly glass of sanity. As I pulled the bottle of cabernet from the pantry I couldnt help but notice the dark red tone of this intoxicating liquid. I wondered if the feeling of happiness and relief I received from my evening glass of wine was anything like the pleasure Eric experienced when the blood touched his lips.

I ended up drinking the entire bottle of wine that night as I watched reality television and tried to wind down from the excitement of the last couple days. Watching the shows I couldnt help but think how these plots paled in comparison to the story that I was now a part of.

* * *

The next morning I became painfully aware that an entire bottle of wine in one night was probably not the right amount for me. My head was pounding and I was fighting a bad case of cotton-mouth but I pushed my way through the morning and not much later was pulling into the parking lot at work ready to begin the daily grind.

My life was not very exciting working in the sourcing department of a wholesale apparel company but I did mostly enjoy my job and I had a great boss which is more then many can say and made me feel lucky. I grabbed a cup of coffee on the way to my desk and tried to slide into my chair without too much notice.

Jessica!

My boss was calling for me with a volume that I could feel in my teeth.

Yes Dawn, coming.

I put the rest of my stuff down but decided to keep my coffee with me as I walked into her office and sat down in the chair across from her desk.

So, how did it go this weekend?

What?

I looked at her in a panic. Why was she asking that? What did she know?

Didnt you have that big date with Eric planned this weekend?

Oh yeah, right. It went really well thanks. In fact, I hate to admit it but I am still a little hungover this morning. Sorry.

Thats ok. As long as you get the work done I wont bust your chops about an extended weekend with your incredibly hot boyfriend. Speaking of which, when is that boy going to propose to you. The two of you would be perfect together.

Dawn, weve only been together for about six months. Lets give the boy some time before we chase him off with our pyscho okI said as I waved my finger in half-joking disapproval.

Ok, Ok. Back to work then I guess.

I left her office and returned to my chair. I had a feeling I was going to be a little distracted today but I tried to jump in and get my orders done before the day got away from me.

* * *

As the work day wrapped up and I thought forward to my chance to see Eric again I knew that I had no doubts. I wanted him. I wanted to be with him. Whatever that might mean was something I was willing to accept. I had never been so happy and felt so complete as I did when I was with him and I knew that we belonged together.

At five I decided to promptly close my computer and shut down. There would be no overtime today. I was going home to see him. I was going home to tell Eric that I loved him and I wanted to be with him.

The traffic going home seemed to take forever but I finally managed to weave my way through. I called Eric on my cellphone to let him know that I had arrived. After two rings the phone picked up.

Hello.

Hey its me. I just pulled up to the apartment complex. Where are you at?

I am upstairs at my place. Come on up when your ready.

I decided to go ahead and skip a stop by my apartment. I hadnt even brought home my computer since there was no way I would be working from home tonight. I hit the button for the elevator which seemed to be taking an incredibly long time to return to the main floor.

Screw thisI said aloud as I ran towards the stairwell.

Eric was four flights up but with the adrenaline flowing through my veins right now it could have been forty floors and I wouldnt have been deterred. I made it up the stairs in record time and closed the distance from the stairwell to his door in seconds. I soon found myself in front of the door of the man who had changed my life forever.

I knocked and took a deep breath, hoping that this would work, praying that we could be together. Behind the less than soundproof barrier I could hear Erics footsteps getting closer. My anticipation grew with each creak of the subfloor that lay beyond that door. Finally the doorknob turned and the door swung open.

I leaped forward unable to control my enthusiasm. I wrapped my arms around his neck and my lips around his lips. I pulled him in close, kissing Eric with all the pent up passion that had been brewing from a day of thinking only of him. When the soreness in my cheeks signaled a need to break the embrace I released my grasp and Eric, who had swept me off my feet, lowered me back to the floor.

I love you Eric. There is no doubt in my mind. I want to be with you. I want to know you. I want to learn everything about you. Just tell me what you need me to do and I will do it.

I could see the hesitation on his face. I worried that I had done something wrong or maybe there was something he was not telling me. But my concerns were brushed aside as he stepped towards me, closed the door, and locked it behind us.

* * *

Eric picked me up, cradling my body in his arms, and carried me into his bedroom. This was not the first time he had picked me up but somehow it seemed different this time. I felt lighter in his arms. Eric seemed stronger then I had ever know him to be.

He leaned in and kissed me with a lustful passion that I had been so desperately seeking all day. My body was his to control as he laid me down across the bed. Laying on my back, vulnerable, I watched him in anticipation, unsure of what he had planned next.

Eric began to slowly and sensually undress me, first removing my top. He was gentle and took care not to damage my clothing while tracing his fingers around my every curve. Eventually we both gave into temptation as we tore away at the remaining fabric on my wanton body. His uncontrollable desire for me was so exciting. The way that he lifted my body with ease, often with only a single hand, made me realize that his true strength had been hidden from me.

Eric the vampire was infinitely more strong and agile then his everyday appearance might indicate. I reached up to tear away his clothing and get to that body I had been thinking about ever since our last encounter. Eric was happy to help and soon his naked skin was lying against mine as he braced himself on top of me.

I caught a sly smile for on his face as I stared into his eyes. He pinned my arms to the bed forcefully and kissed my neck, grazing those sharp teeth again my skin. The danger and unknown of what that sharp enamel could do to me was exciting. I wondered what Eric felt and if he wanted to plunge those teeth deep inside me.

Instead, Erics lips took over and he slowly worked his way down my trembling body. The biochemicals of my fear and sexuality battled loudly through my body sparking every nerve in their path. My senses felt heightened and more aware. I could feel the texture of his tongue as it circled the sensitive skin on my nipples.

Oh my God. Holy shitI yelled as I worked to control the hyperventilation that seemed to be setting in.

Erics mouth continued down my abdomen, slowly approaching the wetness between my legs. As the distance closed my mind could already feel the pleasure of his tongue against my sensitive folds. But instead of feeling his tongue make the transition, Eric stopped just short of the pleasure I desired.

Oh please don’t stop. Don’t stopI pleaded as I reached down to try and encourage him to continue. Eric held firm making me wait painfully long seconds. I was left teetering on the brink of frustrated insanity until Eric finally answered my calls and I felt the firm pressure of his tongue against my overstimulated nerves.

Oh fuck yesI cried out.

Erics tongue felt like magic. He grabbed my hips, as if bracing my body for something to come. Then everything changed. The sensation between my legs was like nothing I had ever felt from him before. Apparently Eric had other supernatural abilities he had been hiding from me as his tongue now worked at speeds and moved in ways that I didnt know were possible.

My body leaped to attention and I found myself unable to control what was rapidly taking over. The build-up lasted only seconds before my body was forced to release a cascade of hormones sending me into uncontrollable waves of orgasm. I grabbed desperately at the sheets trying to brace myself as the room spun around me. I waited and waited for the inevitable easing of the of pulsating waves of pleasure but none seemed to come. Eric just adapted his technique and did not allow my body the opportunity for rest.

A second orgasm rushed through me rapidly chasing the first. I could feel the sweat starting to bead on my skin as my body flexed every muscle in response to his touch. The series continued with one orgasm rolling right into the next. The sensations my body was now experiencing was unlike anything I had reference for. I never wanted it to end and yet I wasnt sure that my body could possibly take any more.

I attempted to lick my lips, trying to wet them after the drying from so much heavy breathing. It was difficult to talk and I was trying to tell Eric I could not take any more but as if he could read my mind the stimulation stopped before I could compose myself enough to ask. My entire body shook from the heavy surge of endorphins that now coursed through me. I thought that Eric had realized my plight and that he was being merciful on my pleasure ravaged body but I was more then a little mistaken.

* * *

Eric raised his body up to be level with mine. I could see the fangs had extended and his eyes had gone black. Eric was no longer in control, he was hungry. His supernatural desires were showing themselves and his primal urges fueled his body. I should have felt fear as I witnessed the powerful beast inside him take control but instead all I could feel was excitement. I wanted him to take me. I wanted him to take my body in any way that he desired.

Eric leaned forward and opened his mouth, resting the tips of his fangs against my neck. I held my breath waiting for him to to plunge those razor sharp teeth into my soft skin. I could feel the heat of his breath against my neck. But he never did. His teeth were lightly scraping the outside of my skin when I felt his true intentions slide between my legs.

The large round tip of his erection pressed against me, urging my body to let it inside. It didnt take long before I eagerly let him inside, feeling his long hard cock sliding against the sensitive walls inside me. Eric thrust forcefully into my hips pushing the weight of my body up against the sharpness of those teeth. I felt a pinch but knew that he had not drawn blood. Eric was teasing me. He was teasing me in a way that I never could have understood until now.

Eric wrapped his powerful arm around my small body and continued to thrust into me, always with the threat of those razor sharp teeth against my neck.

Oh my God Eric. I love you. Take me

His thrusts continued, harder, and harder.

The feeling of his thick shaft inside me combined with the thrill of his fangs trying to penetrate my neck fired up my orgasmic drive and we both started to moan uncontrollably. There was no stopping it at this point. We were both set to explode. The only question was whether we could do it before our out of control desires forced his teeth through skin and into my veins.

“Fuck me Eric. Harder.”

He did and I could feel his entire length twitching inside me. It was time, and I was ready.

With a final powerful thrust Eric howled with pleasure and I joined him using the little voice I had remaining. He held me in place and I felt his warmth inside me. His shaft continued to twitch and release its pent up desires. I squeezed myself around him, desperately trying to draw out this incredible amazing experience.

Finally spent, he collapsed beside me and we wrapped ourselves around each other. I knew in this moment that I had to be with Eric. I only hoped that he felt the same for me. We continued to lay in the dampness of our bed basking in what had just happened until Eric finally spoke.

* * *

Jessica, there is something I need to tell you.

What is it Eric?

There are certain rules in the vampire community that we are not allowed to brake.

Eric looked almost scared as he contemplated what to say next.

You are a human. If they catch me with you they will not only destroy me, but they will kill you as well to punish the crime and erase all trace of it.

I wasnt sure how to respond. I wanted to be with him and I was willing to do whatever it would take but I didnt want to do anything that might get him killed.

So what are you saying Eric?

There is only one way I know of that we can be together and keep you safe.

What is it? What do I have to do?

You need to make the transformation. You need to become a vampire.

I knew what I wanted but my mind was having difficulties forming the words. An eternal existence walking the earth was no small price to pay for immortality. I would need to remove myself from the world I knew as all of my friends and family grew older and died. I would need to exist by surviving on the life giving fluid of other animals.

To be honest, I knew so little about what lay ahead of me that I felt like it was impossible to weigh the decision with any sort of logic. But my heart knew what it wanted. I may not know what the future holds but I have never been as sure about anything as I am about this. I looked back at Eric and steeled myself for the decision that I was about to make.

Eric, I love you. I want to be with you. I understand that there is so much I dont know but what I do know is that I want this. Take me Eric. I am ready.

I took a deep breath and closed my eyes, waiting for the the pain that was sure to come. Slowly, softly, I felt Eric rest his teeth once more against my neck. I wrapped my arms around him and held on tight as I felt my skin give way and the transformation begin.

Lust

His scent.

That was the thing I thought about the most. He smelled different then the rest of them. Yet, he was one. Why did he have such a powerful hold over me. I wished he didnt. I wished that I could refuse him but

He was sexy there was no doubt and if I were still a human I am sure that he would have been a potential mate for me but, I wasnt. I hadnt been for a very long time. In fact today was what I remember as my birthday.

We didnt normally celebrate such things back then but my father had always done something special for me ever time this date rolled around. Or at least I thought it was this date. Calendars had changed a lot in my lifetime and they had not always been so accurate. When you dont account for the correct number of days for the earth to travel its path around the fiery ball at the center of our solar system then the dates move into different parts of the seasons.

Over the centuries my birthday which started in the warmth of the summer had slowly drifted into the cool air of autumn. Eventually when most of the world came together and adopted the current calendar I picked May 1st as my birthday. It seemed important to the others around me that I have an exact date of birth that they could acknowledge. I didnt want to stand out among the humans. I had done it before and learned that fear will drive them to do unthinkable things.

I still did not know who the man was that turned me. He disappeared into the night and left me with no instructions for my new life. The first weeks had been terrifying as I painfully learned the limits of this curse he had brought upon me. Over time, as I traveled the world and came upon legends of the vampire I found texts to explain the unnatural hunger for blood and the searing pain of the sunlight. These texts were not entirely accurate but they did give me a basis for understanding who I had become.

I wondered if there were others like me out there but in the thousands of years I had walked the earth I had never found another of my own kind. It made more sense that somehow they had all died off or been destroyed but in a world as large as ours it was hard to ever know for sure if I was alone. I tried to suppress the hope but it was hard.

Over the years I had been burned, stabbed, shot, as well as much more horrible things that were to difficult to think about now. Unlike some of the legends I had read, I knew first hand that these things caused unimaginable pain just as they would in any human. The only difference was that I was never given the sweet relief of death. I was immortal and never died. Instead my body healed, quickly, just so that I could live through the pain over and over again.

This was enough to drive anyone mad and for a period of time I suppose that is exactly what I was. When my mind finally cleared and I came to terms with my affliction it became easier to avoid the others and to never stay in one place to long. I learned how to blend in. I even built a house as far away from civilization as I could find. Yet, the loneliness was crushing and I found myself needing to come back, to risk the pain and suffering for a taste of the humanity which I had lost so long ago.

It was during one of these journeys back into the world in which I found Adam. His smell had overwhelmed me the minute I walked into that book store. I had never experienced a scent like it before yet as far as I could tell he was just a normal human man. The smell was intoxicating but not in the way that I was used to. Unlike the heightened sense of smell I had when the blood lust grew inside me, Adams scent caused other lustful wants to grow.

* * *

I had swore long ago that there would be no more intimate relationships with humans. The last time I had allowed myself this luxury it ended with me having to take his life. I should have been honest with him from the start but when it was obvious that I did not age I had to reveal my secret. I thought that he loved me. I had thought that he would join me in this lonely eternal existence. Instead, he turned on me, just as many had before.

He blocked my escape as I tried to run away and swore that he would see me tortured for my unnatural existence. The man with whom I had thought I would spend the rest of eternity with instead left me no choice but to drain him of his life giving blood. I needed to protect my secret. There was no way that I would ever again let myself be the outlet of savageness caused by fear.

I cried the entire time that his red warmth pleasurably trickled down my throat. I hated myself for enjoying the taste and I hated the monster I had become. That was the day that everything changed.

After centuries of keeping that promise to myself, I was now set to break it all over again. The fear of repeating history seemed to be no match for the overwhelming attraction I felt to this man.

Whywhy did he make me feel this way…”

My thought was interrupted as his scent filled my nose. I looked up to see him walking into the coffee shop. We had decided to meet up for coffee before I went on shift at the hospital. I had always been uncomfortable with the pleasure I received when killing my pray. Over the millennia it had been a necessity to avoid the horrific ravages of hunger. Eventually, I figured out that the best way to gain access to an endless blood supply that didnt involve killing was to become a doctor. The position worked out even better for me since I volunteered for the night-shift when the staffing was less and I didnt have to feel the pain from the searing sun.

It was true that as a vampire the sun caused quite a bit of discomfort, but unlike the elaborate tales that evolved to tell our story I would not burst into flames as I walked out the door in the morning. The scorching rays of the sun on my skin just caused a steady burning sensation that made it hard to focus on anything else. I had long ago become accustomed to dealing with it but life was always more pleasant when I could avoid the light of day.

I did not taste flavors quite like a human would anymore but I found that things like drinking coffee or dining out at restaurants were a necessary compromise to get the social interaction that I still craved. What I did taste in the coffee house was the scent of each persons blood. Everyones scent was a little different. My sense of smell grew more acute the hungrier I became and I had not fed since last nights shift.

But as the door closed behind him my senses were flooded with only one tastehis. Adam saw me and smiled. It was the same smile that had melted me the first day we met and had yet to cease having the same effect.

He closed the distance between us as I stared like a star-struck teenager.

I was thousands of years old and yet this man made me feel like it was all happening for the first time again. Suddenly, just as Adam walked past a table a woman behind him dropped her coffee. Her arms flailed widely trying to recapture the hot liquid container as it plummeted towards the ground. Before the sounds of a gasp could pass her lips I witnessed Adam stop, spin, and snatch the falling cup from the air as if it were standing still.

How the hell did he do thatI wondered to myself?

He had already passed the table when the woman lost her hold so how the hell did he even see it?

Here you go MissAdam said as the woman swooned at his chivalry.

He turned and continued his walk towards me while I tried to process what I had just saw. I tried to shake off my trance and refocus on the world at hand. Yet somehow, deep down inside, I felt as though I just witnessed a piece of the puzzle that was my mysterious infatuation.

How the hell did he do thatI asked myself again?

Adam closed the distance between us, snapping my mind back into reality. He was here, and I had a decision to make.

Good evening Alexa.

This wasnt my real namemy given name. Over the years I had changed identities several times but this name had stuck with me the longest. It was from ancient Greece and meant defender. I had picked it long ago when I thought that maybe my condition was so sort of gift and that I was meant for something greater. Those ambitions had long sense faded but I still liked the name.

So what time does your shift start tonight?

In about an hourI responded as I took another sip from my coffee.
