She hummed to herself as she walked home; her long black hair and dark jacket almost concealed her in the night. Her headphones drowned out most of the noise around her so when a young man stopped her she yelped in fright.
She smiled politely as she moved to let him past but when he didnt move she timidly moved past him. Loki grinned, grabbing her arm and pulling her back, making sure to cover her mouth in case she screamed. He hissed as he hovered over her face, holding his lips just above her skin he brushed her hair away
smiling at her terrified eyes. He moved sensually down to her neck while his hands moved over her hips, bringing his own closer. She whimpered as she felt his breath reach her throat, her heartbeat driving him mad. He could almost taste her, his pulse racing, his body quaking, his hunger screaming
Loki growled as his meal was interrupted. Glaring up at whom ever the voice belonged to
only to be surprised to see it was Cid. The girl saw her chance and broke free, fleeing to Cids side, grabbing his arm.
Is this guy harassing you Miss?
He asked, looking down at her as she cowered next to him.
Yes! I think he was trying to rape me!
She shouted hysterically as he kept her eyes on Loki, who was now glaring at them both. Cid took her hand off his arm gently, speaking to her in a calm and reassuring voice.
Go on your way Miss, Ill take care of him.
She looked up at him, her expression of silent awe almost making Loki sick as he watched his meal slowly slip away, he sighed loudly making Cid glance at him for a moment before repeating,
Go home Miss. Dont take anymore back roads.
She nodded, brushing his arm one last time before thanking him and running back towards the car park. Loki waited until she was out of sight before commenting,
What? So do you think youre a bloody hero now?
Cid looked back towards him. Loki looked more than just upset
he was twitchy.
I warned you, I told you I wouldnt be able to just let you kill her. Im sorry.
He moved closer, keeping his eye on Loki, watching as his fingers tapped on his belt creating an eerie noise in the pitch-black lane. As Loki spoke his voice sounded jerky, jittery
like he was high on a rush of sugar or just denied the drug he was addicted to.
I needed her, Cid. You had no right!
Cid looked at him concerned,
Its ok, you can get someone later
I just couldnt let you while I knew
I needed her
I needed her now
I wanted her, I was so close
Kelly its ok.
He moved even closer, resting a hand on Lokis shoulder as he watched him with a worried expression. He had never seen Loki like this before. It troubled him.
He added as he held his wrist out offering his friend his own blood. Loki glanced at his wrist, the sight of his veins almost making him moan and crumble. He held himself back, looking at Cid in disbelief.
He lifted his wrist closer to Lokis lips, tempting him to break as he persisted.
Take it, seriously! If you need it its o
YOU DONT GET IT DO YOU!
Loki screamed as he forced Cids wrist away, pushing him back with such force it nearly knocked him clean off his feet.
You dont understand how this works! I cant just take a little
if I feed from you I wont stop until Ive killed you!
His growling voice thundered through out the tiny lane, booming at first then breaking off into despair. Cid caught his balance, watching back at Loki, feeling for his friend as he watched this
thing torment him. This curse ripping him apart, turning him slowly mad. He moved back over to his side, reaching for his shoulder and pulling him in
What have you done to yourself Kelly?
He asked as he stroked Lokis hair, trying to calm him down or at least stop him shaking.
This isnt a good thing youve accepted, listen to yourself
its slowly devouring you, its taking you over.
Its fine. Im fine
Loki sounded agitated as he pushed himself away, brushing his hair back from his milky face. Cid never once took his eyes from him,
You dont sound fine. Im worried for you
I really am
Im scared Im loosing the Kelly I knew, I grew up with.
This is why I need you!
Loki interrupted. The desperate tone returning to his voice,
Let me turn you. You can keep me sane
keep me human. I wont have to watch as you grow old with out me
I wont have to watch as you turn frail and die
I wont be alone
Finally, Cid let his eyes fall from Loki, resting his gaze on the ground,
I couldnt Kelly. Not after seeing what its doing to you. I dont know how helpful I would be in keeping you human if I wasnt human myself.
He looked back up,
It looks like torture.
sometimes feels like torture
Loki tried to laugh as he said this in an attempt to lighten the mood but he could hear himself how forced it sounded. Cid just nodded,
Alright, Im going home. Like I said, I have a problem with you killing if I know youre doing it
I wont say another word. Just
He placed his hands in his pockets and started to head back in the direction he came from knowing that he would just be getting in the way if he stayed. Loki smiled, seeing what he was doing.
you mushy bastard!
He called after him watching him walk away. Cid just smiled to himself, calling back with out turning round.
Ill be checking up on you tomorrow so behave!
Loki ran to catch up with him, mimicking Cid by putting his own hands in his pockets.
Ill walk you out the car park and start heading back home, not going to find anyone down here.
Cid smiled as they walked peering at Loki through the corner of his eyes,
Youre an odd one you are
and this vampire thing is just making you stranger.
you know Im just the same guy at heart.
Loki grinned at him as they wandered out into the car park, the light from the street lamps highlighting their faces again.
sometimes. Im going to have to keep my eye on you. Right Im really going home this time so you! Fuck off!
Hahaha!! Yeah you too. See you later.
The two laughed as they parted ways, Loki wandering back up the main street
feeling the faint tug of his hunger play on his mind, jab at his body
it started to ache a little. He preyed that someone would cross him, that he would find someone near by, anyone. Just anything to take this hunger away
thats when he sensed something
he paused for a moment, trying to figure out the persons where abouts.
His eyes widened however, it wasnt a human he had found
it was another vampire. Another
two vampires? No, it couldnt be. The second vampire he sensed was faint; barely even readable as a vampire
it was intriguing to say the least. He had never met another vampire before besides the one that had turned him
making him think back to that letter he received the other day. Could it be him? He turned and ran across the street.
He was going to find out.
