The taste was sweet When your blood hit my tongue, it tasted so sweet. When your eyes glazed over from pain, the look was tantalizing. I knew that I had to save this one. Your mind was so frazzled and tormented as I had to erase everything. Parents who abused you and friends who ignored you. It all needed to go. I was making you innocent again and in my eyes that was for the best. The past has never happened for you. A new start is all you need. A perfect slave. Your eyes were fogging up. It was so beautiful. The only bad thing was it made you look gloomy. Your forceful grip on my arm loosened as the spell started taking full affect. The fire in your eyes left as you started to go limp in my tender arms. My teeth were still deep in your neck. They sucked at your pale skin and took in your special blood. I still remember my hunger that day. I felt starved. My stomach was so warm and full. By the time I was done, you were passed out in my arms. It looked like you were sleeping peacefully.

Could you love me? Chapter 5Karkat couldn’t help the tears that started to pour from his eyes. Talk about being a sap but it did fit the emotional moment. “I love you. I love you. I love you.” Karkat said over and over in a mantra of words.Could you love me? Chapter 53 years ago in Drama More Like This
John didn’t understand why Karkat was crying and took it as he did something wrong. “Karkat..?” He whispered. It was like Karkat was on some other world because he didn’t respond. John heard all the ‘I love you’ but why was Karkat crying? “Hey Karkat.” John raised his hand to Karkat’s face and started to thumb tears away.
“I’m sorry. John. God, I must look so stupid. I just.” Karkat sniffled. His words came out at the speed of light. It sounded nasally and it was hard to understand. He just didn’t want to mess it up. “I’m happy. I love you.” Karkat tried to explain but felt silly. He was being so emotional but that was just how he always had been. As far as he knew

“How much money do we have left?” Karkat asked.
“Well, between the two of us we have like ten bucks.” John sighed.
“So basically nothing.” Karkat groaned, “Can we even get lunch with that?”
“I don’t know, but worst comes to worst we won’t starve if we miss one meal.”
“Can’t you just get more money from someone on the street like you did before?” Karkat asked.
“I’d rather not. I dislike having to use my abilities to leech off other people.”
“Yeah, but what happens in a few days when neither of us has eaten? I doubt you would be able to fly anymore, and then where does that put us?” Karkat said, concerned for the long run.

This is good. You desperately, desperately wanted this- Karkat is awesome, funny, and perfect. Sure, he seems to go off on a rage-induced tangent every two and a half minutes, but that’s just who he is, and you love it. You love who he is.
Altogether, you’re pretty sure you love Karkat Vantas.

You sniff and shift your gaze around the small blue room. You feel heavy disappointment settle in your gut when you see that John's already gone to school. You let your ears droop slightly, but try and keep your spirits up. Today is the last day that the human boy has to attend school, then you'll have him for an entire summer.
Spending the days all alone in the house gets lonely and boring. A few times, you've gone out and explored the nearby woods, but even that's gotten old.

Far From Home - Chapter 1John awoke with a start, his breath coming out in quick, hurried pants. He sat up for a moment, clinging to the dirty fabric that served as his blanket as he tried to remember what had woken him up. It was a nightmare, he knew that- some sort of horrible nightmare he couldn’t quite remember the details of. He remembered it began with a sense of joy, and ended with sheer terror and orange. Lots an lots of orange and yellow and red. He couldn’t remember much more- not that it mattered anyways. The awning attached to the tent behind him served as the boy’s roof. There were no walls on his part of the structure, which allowed him to look out onto the vast land, covered with millions of little tents just like the one in which his owner was sleeping. With a little gasp, John noticed the sky was not the dark, smoky black it usually was- instead it was a light, hazy grey.

Usually it doesn’t bother you when he says those things. Usually he just mumbles them and you know he’s kidding. The telltale blush on his cheeks always proves it; no matter how many times he says he hates you, Karkat Vantas will always have those- what are they called- “red feelings” for you.
Or so you thought.
You don’t even know what started it. Maybe you took a joke too far, or maybe you just pissed him off when you spilled coffee on his shirt this morning. He had started with his normal tirade of insults, the ones that he doesn’t mean. The ones that you think are kind of cute, the ones that he uses to sound bigger than he is.
Then his voice escalated in both decibels and pitch, signifying that he actually was pretty peeved.

"Hey John, catch!" Karkat chuckled as he threw the ball to me.
I hit it with the baseball bat, before running like a madman to the first base. I saw the other team's guys trying to catch me, but I dived right in time to touch the white book with my foot. We were playing baseball with a bunch of friends in the park. Karkat had learned the rules very easily, and was pretty gifted for the game with his strong hands and agile legs. For four years, he had been quite popular at school. He hadn't any difficulties with all the lessons and exercises, but his favorite class was PE. I never would have believed he could jump this high or run for hundreds of meters without feeling tired. That's why everyone wanted him in their sports club. He and I had chosen baseball: it was what he liked the most. We were training for the soon-to-come interscholastic championship. At the end of the match, we all fell on the grass, exhausted, Karkat's team having won by 12-7. My brother was unbeatable. If you want

Promise. It’s so goddamn funny how a promise can be destroyed, shattered, thrown into oblivion by that one other word.
Maybe it was unintentional. Just the game, tearing everything he ever knew from him as he cascaded through his portal, back to his world.
