When the full moon peered though the young girl's window, it
wasn't the only visitor that night.
Once again he returned, Kiku the lord of darkness swiftly climbed
a nearby tree and bounded into her room. The window was conveniently open due
to being a nice warm summer night. The vampire could have easily walked in
though the door, but this was easier and he always wanted to surprise her.
She was sleeping soundly. He watched her chest rise and fall, rise
and fall slowly as she breathed.
It was a gift given to only the living.
Kiku always tried to gain it by stealing it from his hosts, but
alas. As soon as he drained them dry it was gone. Forever lost in the wind.
It's true home.
He glanced over at her neck. He saw the marks he has left behind
from previous nights. Scabbed yet strong her heart still pumped blood. Kiku
could hear the beat from where he was standing. Ba-bump, ba--bump, Ba---bump.
Her pace was slower then the first night they met, the first taste, and the first
The vampire sighed.
He did this to her, wounded her, hurt her.
With others it was different. With his past hosts he enjoyed
watching them slowly die as he drank.
But it was semi-life or dust for him. If he didn't drain the first
girl he saw he would have slowly joined breath in the wind.
The moment he tasted her, he regretted it instantly. He couldn't
kill this beautiful girl. He would have chosen dust. But he had to have more.
His natural instincts kicked in as he bit her once more, not as
gently. More like a demon. Not like the soft boy you may have thought he was. H
took in as much of her sweet cinnamon like blood as he could. When suddenly,
you woke up.
Kiku blinked, breaking him out of his trance like state. He had a
flash back of when you were made his host.
Then the girl awoke and sat up.
She said quietly.
The vampire walked over and darkness licked up from under his feet
as he walked.
He simply walked over and bent down to the level she was sitting.
He cupped her cheek in her hand and said while looking away.
"I love you, (Name)."
She looked away and held her neck.
Tears flooded her eyes.
Somehow, she loved him too.
Kiku, her vampire.
(Name), his host.
"I love you too Kiku."
She looked into his deep brown eyes, and he nodded.
He bent down and kissed her hand. Then flipped it over and bit
into the vain in her wrist, more like a gentle kiss then a bite. It never hurt
She sighed happily.
When he was done he held your hand for a moment. And cut his arm
with his sharp nails.
She knew exactly what he was doing- she kissed every drop of
bitter blood to clean his arm. Then she slept.
The very next full moon she awoke to the vampire in her room for
the first time since she entered her slumber. She knew that he passed part of
the demon into her.
"Kiku, her vampire."
Whispered the girl.
"(Name), His host, his breath, his lover forever more."
He whispered back to the girl.
Hand in hand they disappeared into the night.
