Following my usual habit, here’s what happens after my Rainbow Snippet of yesterday, after Aiden decides to show Marco what it really means to get close:
“Do you want me to kiss you there? Do you, Marco?” He nods, his eyes closed. I press him to me as I lower my mouth to his chest, piercing the skin. His eyes squeeze tighter, a small moan moving in his throat as I drink a few quick mouthfuls of him, then pull away sharply. I close my eyes, trembling. This is hard, very hard. Hard to stop. Even now, I want to grab him and finish the job. I feel him approach me, trying to put his arms around my waist. I throw up my hands in a panic, stopping him. I turn to face the wall, eyes squeezed shut, trembling with my own needs. He backs off.
“It’s all right, sir–Aidan. Thank you. I understand now.”
I turn, furious, glaring at him, my eyes black and staring. My fangs are still stained with his blood.
“You understand?” I stalk over to him. “Just what in hell do you understand, Marco? That I’m a vampire? That I just marked you? You don’t understand anything.” My voice is shaking. I take my handkerchief and wipe my mouth. The stains won’t fade this time–he’s still alive. I drop the handkerchief, watching it flutter to the floor, stained with red. “Do you know how close you were to dying?”
