Laken is a strong willed woman who is tortured by the fact that being a vampire is not all the books and movies make it out to be. Her maker, Richard, is a controlling one hundred and fifty year old vampire that makes fledglings to do all of his daily shores for him. The only human contact Laken has is with her nightly donors, hers is a gay man named Eric. After Eric has to leave town she end up with a new donor, Hayden. She is so drawn to Hayden she fears her maker will find out. Soon she discovers she is forming a blood bond with Hayden she is scared once the blood bond forms and Richard feels it that he will be angry with her.
This is the first in a series of short stories based on the five senses.
Laken finished showering and got dressed in a light pink silk gown. She pulled her hair back into a loose braid and sat on the bed waiting on her donor to arrive. There was a light knock on the door. Laken opened the door and gasped at the man standing on the other side. He was easily six foot-five two hundred-fifty pounds of pure tanned muscle. He had light hair cut short and emerald green eyes.
“Can I come in?” He asked
“Um, oh yeah come on in. I’m Laken, what’s your name?”
“Hayden, I’m Hayden. Where would you like me? This is my first time so I’m kinds scared.”
“You can sit right here,” She said pulling the chair out from her makeup table “Don’t be scared, I only bite,” She said with a giggle.
This seemed to make him relax a little. She watched him as he sat down and looked around the room. He didn’t strike her as a druggie so this made her feel better. She was glad to at least have such a sexy donor to drink from.
She walked and stood in front of him. “I’ll have to sit in your lap to feed, because you’re so tall, okay?
She straddled his lap and leaned down to his neck, she felt him tense up.
“Okay you have to relax. I’ll talk you thru this. First I’ll lick your neck. This will numb the area so it won’t hurt.” She leaned back down to his neck and closed her eyes, he smelled so good. She slowly took her tongue and ran it up and down his neck, feeling the rush of blood under his skin.
“Okay now I will gently insert my fangs into where I just licked, when I get thru to the blood I will retract my fangs and suck the blood out until I’m full, normal about ten minuets.”
She gently placed her fangs on his neck, she could feel his pulse, and she slowly inserted her fangs into his skin, feeling a slight pop when she punctured the blood vein. She retracted her fangs and closed her mouth over the two small holes and started sucking. Her mouth filled with his hot velvety blood, it was the best tasting blood she’d ever had. She had to make herself slow down. She really wanted to enjoy this. She shifted her body to get a better suction on his neck, when she did this she felt something hard beneath her bottom. She froze.
Hayden wrapped his hands around her waist and pulled her body closer to him. She sucked even harder, drawing his blood into her mouth with a greedy pace, he moaned and his blood shifted flavor. It filled her mouth with a succulent and raw taste, she’d never tasted this before, but she needed more of it, she realized she was rocking back and forth rubbing herself on the rock hard object beneath her. She felt herself getting wet, she knew this was wrong but she couldn’t stop herself
With her vampire speed, she flung herself out of his lap and stood on the other side of the room staring at him. She noticed he looked confused for a moment.
