|A short story about love and a twisted mind.|
The midnight within Dragged from the comforts of sleep Jess moaned softly. the sweet kiss of nausea rolling through her aching head as she opened her eyes. The tick of the clock on her nightstand gave small comfort as she squinted into the darkness of the bedroom. Black walls accented by the dark reds of her carpet and curtains whispered that everything was ok. Her beloved posters of Marlin manson and Nine inch nails all black lit and glossy in the small room. Thirsty, she moved to sit up only to feel sharp pain sing to life in her hands. Blinking through the soft curtain of dyed black hair she stared down at her legs, ghostly and thin in the pale moonlight that shone through her open window. Bright blue eyes fixed on a dark spot high up on one thigh, other spots dotting her belly and the sheet under her. Panic sizzled to life as her gaze shifted from the sheets to her tingling fingers. both wrists where secured to her headboard with strips of her own black lace dress. From the darkness a cool black nailed hand caressed her temple, drawing a thick strand of inky hair away from her pale face. Thought i lost you. Purred a familiar male voice. Her heart began to pound as a soft whimper slipped from between dry lips. " You know i don't like to hurt you He whispered. but you don't give me any choice and now its time to pay. She wanted to give protest, to scream, cry or both but he was right. she had made her own hell. A hell far worse than any she could have dreamed up on her own. His weight lifted from the bed as he left her to change the cd and snuff one of the many canals that had burned down too low. The Haunting sounds of type o Negative followed him as he returned to the bed, a darker shape against the flickering light that danced on the walls of her room. She could'nt help but shiver as his muscular, leather clad legs caressed the bare skin of her torso. There was blood on his chest, his or her own she did not know. Perhaps did not want to know. What's the matter love. He purred, Running long black nails down her neck and over one pale shoulder. don't you love me anymore? His Hips slid forward drawing a soft moan from her paper dry throat. a heartbreakingly cruel smile lifted the corners of his perfect lips as he tenderly kissed her forhead. we could have been so good together He purred, leaning down to tickle her face and neck with the long strands of his soft hair. why are you doing this? she croaked, as his soft warm lips brushed the corner of her mouth. Pausing her gave her an almost childish look of confusion. Because i love you. His strong hands stilled on her bare throat as he kissed her deeply. The taste of blood was sharp and strong as his teeth sank into the skin of her bottom lip, the grip of his hands cutting off any more words. The flair of a single match lit the darkness as the last eerie notes of love you to death died away, leaving only the sound of the ticking clock and the creak of the rope. Exhaling sweet smoke he moved to the open window, careful not to touch the sill. The glint of something shiny caught his eye and he bent to pick it up. Grinning he scooped up the silver cross necklace, palming it. " Forever my love" He whispered, Melting into the darkness like a shadowy wraith. leaving behind the scent of musk and the fading echo of his laughter. Tweet
