The Lovers

Why? That single thought was all that his brain could hold at the moment. The pain was too much, too near, and too sudden. It broke him every time he even considered what this all meant. All he could do was to lie on the floor.


The morning had been nice, what better than to wake up with the love of your life next to you. His hand had rested on her hair and he had brushed away some of the hair from her beautiful face. Maybe he should make her breakfast? Humans always loved that. So he had gotten out of bed careful not to wake her, put on his pants and, wait…


Why was she so white? Where was the glow around her? Her essence that had called out to him in the first place? He took one step closer to the bed and touched her cheek, she was ice-cold. This was when the thoughts had started to swim around in his brain, crawling to get out. This was the moment that led up to why. This was when his soul shattered.


He lifted the covers from her body and stared. No! Not him, not her! He couldn’t have, he would never hurt her. His mind tried to recall events from last night as he stared at her bloody body, a body where her chest was ripped open and her heart was gone. He remembered sweet loving, and he remembered, he took a step down and fell to the floor. He remembered him tearing her chest open and eating her still beating heart.


That it was demons do the voice in his head said, even if you try so hard to be something else. He closed his eyes.

*Gulp* That one nearly brought a tear. So sad.

Awesome entry!

Hmmm, maybe one of the picture prompts someday will inspire you enough to dig into that naughty side of yours :P

It just happened, the places my mind takes me when I can't write smut. But one day, I'll surprise ya ;)

Could have been smut, you're right! I love the demon trying to resist his nature (and nature wins out!), excellently done B!! Can't wait to see what you come up with for tomorrow's prompt!

Re: Wow!!!
Can't wait to see the pic :D This one was truly hard (me and my smutty mind) but I should know that my mind takes me on a ride every time

Re: Wow!!!
LOL I almost wrote one that was nothing but sexy, but calmer heads won out, and I wrote what I know instead... dark, edgy, vampiric... It was a very hard prompt for me to write for too. You did fabulously though, I really do love it. Demons are another favorite of mine.

Re: Wow!!!
They are sure fun to work with, even if my poor fellow took a turn for the dark ;)
