Alasdair and Jules

This snippet is from the wedding dance that Alasdair attended–he’s asked Jules to dance with him, and Jules is wondering how Alasdair knew what her and Bruce’s conversation was about–oh, that vampire hearing–

“Alasdair, how did you hear Bruce when he told me he was going to invite you to sit with us?”

He smiled with a twitch of his lips.  “My hearing is also legendary.  I also heard your comment about my braid being as long as I am tall, but that is not quite true, my dear.  It has been known to touch the floor when I sit on a low stool, however.”

Embarrassed, she tried to stammer an apology, but he shook his head slightly.

“There is no offense taken, Julia. None whatsoever.” He smiled once more at her, and they continued dancing, her embarrassed blush showing on her cheeks.  “For your charming spouse, I will most likely choose a slow dance so he is not tempted to whirl me around too quickly. I’m a traditional Scotsman in fact if not appearance, so more might be revealed than would be prudent for this social gathering.”

That made Jules laugh out loud.  That mental picture should last her awhile, she thought.

Thomas and Charles

This is a snippet from my recently expanded version of Las Vegas Circle in which Charles is very frustrated with Thomas– he doesn’t realize his secret just yet. All he knows is that he wants him–

“Christ, just get in there and finish yourself off, you idiot.” I step in and grab the shower gel, paying particular attention to my front, stroking myself with a lazy twist of my fist, then reaching back with my other hand to stick a finger in.

I shiver, moving faster, up and down, in and out, and as I come with a strangled shout, I watch the water rinse my leavings off the shower tiles. I prop myself up with one hand, my head hanging down, my chest heaving.

I shouted his name.

There’s something different about him, but what?

Dark Diamond

images of flames-bdXaPoor Wes–his dad left him the funeral home, the crematorium, and all the nasty deeds that go along with it. One night, he has to make good on a pretty shifty job his dad has contracted for with the asylum for the criminally insane –some poor soul that swallowed a diamond earring–

At least the inmate was reduced to a few pieces that he had to hammer down.

   All he had to do after that was scoop him into a box and slap a fake label on it. Homeless John Doe, so sad.

A thought came into Wes’ head about what the driver had said about the diamond being his if he could find it.

“What the hell, might as well give it a shot.”

He sifted through the ash on the tray, past small shards of bone here and there.A flash caught his eye.

Wes reached down and snagged what looked like a small chip of darkened glass, rubbing it against his sweatshirt. He could see the tiny piece of twisted metal that was the stud of the earring, but the stone itself looked like no diamond that he had ever seen before. Heat wouldn’t have done that to a diamond, heat and pressure was what made a diamond, right? It was dark like smoke, with flashes of red inside. He turned it over and over, looking into its depths. Something about it was—really weird—

“Wh—what?”

Heart’s Embers

My snippet this week is from the sequel to The Ancient. Bruce has just gotten out of the hospital and Jeffrey has helped him get ready for bed–and he’s missed him very much. Bruce has missed him too, and takes the upper hand. A rather heated snippet, matching the weather lately —

Jeffrey nodded, his eyes closed. He leaned back on the pillow, trembling as Bruce returned his attention to Jeffrey, slowly trailing his moist tongue down and starting delicious goose bumps on his skin. He listened to the small cries coming from Jeffrey as he touched the velvety end of Jeffrey’s erection with the tip of his tongue, making that little drop of glistening moisture he coaxed from him stretch and spin between the two like a spider‘s web.

“It–feels so good–,” Jeffrey sighed, his back arching.

Bruce stopped, looking at his lover.

“God, don’t stop–please–”

Alasdair and Edgar

My snippet this week is a tender moment between the Father of All and his beloved halfling ❤

“The events of this evening have brought me to a decision, with the help of the Mother. I have not asked Her help in quite a long time, but I needed Her tonight.”  Alasdair looked at Edgar, searching his face. “I have always thought that my kind should have a sense of morality that separates us from my Nosferatu, and I have done and said things this evening that I am not proud of. I am ready to admit something to you that I have been resisting for almost as long as I have known you.”

“What–is it?”

Alasdair reached over and captured Edgar’s hands.

“I love you. I wish to bond with you.”

Edgar’s eyes turned huge with shock, swimming with tears.  “Alasdair, I’ve waited so long for this, waited to tell you, instead of whispering to myself when you weren’t here.”  He raised Alasdair‘s hands to his face, laying them on his cheeks.

“I love you, I have always loved you, even through the bad times.  I would love to bond with you.” He searched his eyes, then took back his hands.  Alasdair gently stroked Edgar’s face with his thumbs, then smiled at him.

What Happened Next

For you the curious, here’s what happened after Alasdair’s declaration–

Edgar’s eyes turned huge with shock, swimming with tears.  “Alasdair, I’ve waited so long for this, waited to tell you, instead of whispering to myself when you weren’t here.”  He raised Alasdair‘s hands to his face, laying them on his cheeks.

“I love you, I have always loved you, even through the bad times.  I would love to bond with you.” He searched his eyes, then took back his hands.  Alasdair gently stroked Edgar’s face with his thumbs, then smiled at him.

“First, I have to tell you what happened at the meeting.  Our Bruce brought his not so long lost lover, of course, and–this man does indeed have access to knowledge that could be dangerous to both of us.  He is an extremely strong and vital individual. Also, the love between them is powerful, extremely so.”  He stared into his eyes.      “Almost as strong as ours will be when we are bonded.  There are complications, however, because of the fact that I have kept you alive long after your time.  So, we have just a short time to purge your system, to prepare you.”      He leaned back on the couch and drew Edgar’s head onto his shoulder.
