Edge Part 30: The SetupI groaned as I shuffled under the sheets, my heart nearly stopping as I noticed the warm presence I pressed against. I twitched my fingers, feeling his shoulder blade under my grip, and smiled. I opened my eyes but was too afraid to move as I seen Elliot's still-asleep face next to me, his hands curled near his face. I thought that even my slightest movement would wake him, so I remained still, taking him in... His was perfect and soft as he slept, and yet, at the same time, there was something strong about him that I admired. He had almost an angelic air about him; his pale skin and flawless features, gentle curls of blonde hair falling around the pillows... And here he was, all too real... Asleep in my bed. How could something that was supposed to be so wrong feel so right?Edge Part 30: The Setup7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I couldn't take just looking at him any longer. I moved my hand from his back, running my palm over his chest. Before he could wake up, I leaned in and put my lips against his. I felt

Camael groaned and looked out the window. I really do not want to do this. He said Oh come on it will be fun and we havent seen Adrian and Abby in a while anyway. Arent you interested in how they are doing? Apolon asked producing the best smile he could.
I suppose Camael grunted. Thats the spirit. Apolon whipped the car around in a U turn after missing his turn off and then sped down the correct street. They pulled in front of Adrians building and stopped. Now dont be a grump Camille, Abby really is looking forward to this. Apolon said with a smile.

Edge Part 23: Bang I could see the light in the distance getting closer... Just beyond the thin path, but that's all I could see. I kept moving, though. There had to be something at the end! Maybe a house... or a street. It looked like I was walking deeper into the woods, but who knows. Maybe there was a street somewhere... As the end got closer, I tried to move faster. I was so close... I could see the ground at the end of the path... it just looked like dirt, not a street, but it could still be a house. I pressed even faster until my lungs started to hurt again, trying to keep my balance by using the trees around me.Edge Part 23: Bang7 years ago in Horror More Like This
Finally, I bust through the thin wall of vines that covered over the end of the trail, covering my eyes as bright, white light blinded me. I stumbled blindly forward, trying to open my eyes, the light making it impossible. As I finally stopped trying to walk, blind, I herd something click.

"Where are we going?" I finally asked Elliot as woods started to surround us, the dirt road in front of us gradually becoming more narrow.
"Somewhere nice," he said, glancing at me.
"But we're in the woods," I said, nervously. "What about Cirrus?"
"I wouldn't want you going in the woods without me regardless, but he only wanders around at night for the most part. Sleeps in the day. Probably because there's nothing he can do without being seen by people," he said, shrugging.
I accepted his explanation and just watched the ground as the too- green trees diminished, a gradually widening ribbon of blue water running along side the path. I sat up as Elliot pulled the car off to the side, the water from the river thickening and mak
Edge Part 48: I Still Love You I tried to not think about who would find me... How I would look. How much blood there would be. My mother would probably find me when she came home from work tomorrow... After I hadn't answered her calls all day. As the cold blade of Elliot's knife made tiny, almost unnoticeable nicks in my skin, I thought about how I would do it. Elliot's knife was so sharp, it wouldn't take much pressure to slit my wrist wide open... I could probably bleed myself dry just from one, quick pull. If it went deep enough, I wouldn't even have to do the other wrist.Edge Part 48: I Still Love You7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I relaxed my shoulders a moment, taking another deep breath as I opened my eyes, trying to start over again. I looked down at the knife shaking in my hand, the chiseled detail of the wolves' furs glittering against the dull light from my lamp like gold. I could see my reflection in the silver of the polished blade, my eyes swollen and red, nose and cheeks just a shade pinker. Even in the metal reflection, I could

I sighed, finally pulling my palms away from my eyes and looking at him. I reached one hand up and he took it, yanking me to my feet. I stumbled under my sleeping legs before gaining my balance as I fell against his chest. I pushed away as quickly as I could, but I knew it wasn't going to do any good. I was just lying to myself, now. Elliot laughed in his throat, shaking his head.
"I'm sorry," I said again. "I'm over reacting, aren't I?"
I thought I herd Dante scoff at my comment from the kitchen, but it might just have easily have been a sneeze or a cough.

If there was ever a time to panic, gushing blood in an abandoned, dead ended road with your senses failing you and a potential murderer just around the corner was the time! No... I wouldn't let myself go down like that! The cracked, old pavement beneath me scratched at me jeans as I tried to stand. I twisted my body around until I was facing the chain link fence that barred my only way to freedom. My heart raced as terrible thoughts clouded my brain.... What if he's got a gun? Do you wanna die shot from behind? I tried to push them away as I ran my fingers along the fence, trying to place them in a way that would let me pull my numb body up. I stretched my hands above me, gasping as warm blood soaked through the fabric on my shirt sleeve. I couldn't keep my eyes from falling of the wound on my arm. It was worse than I thought.

Nervousness started escalating my heart, causing me to move frantically. I knew I needed to get out, before whatever was in these woods got to me. I didnt know what was in the woods, but I knew that Id be dead if it finally got tired of our game of cat and mouse. It seemed pointless to me to keep going in this mind-numbing darkness. A sharp snap of a stick sounded behind me, and I whirled around. All I could see was a pair of golden eyes, and the flash of fangs, though the figure slowly manifested to me. It was Damion, and relief instantly nearly buckled me. His skin was too pale t

Edge Part 54: Exchanging Words I managed to call Elliot and slip out of my house without so much as making my mother turn in her sheets. The way to Elliot's was hard, though, with the chilling breeze and icy air. Not to mention the occasional howl, from what I could only assume was Cirrus still looking for Rafael, sending shivers down my spine. And it didn't help that Elliot didn't meet me half way. My house was hardly out of view by the time he was at my side, his glowing pupils searching the darkness as another howl split the night.Edge Part 54: Exchanging Words7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
"You hear that?" He asked me as he put his arm against my back, hurrying me along.
"How could I not? Hell if Cirrus shuts his mouth for two seconds," I said, trying to make light of something that was obviously worrying Elliot.
"How did you know that was Cirrus?" Elliot asked, his eyes flashing towards me.
"Who else would it be?"
My answer wasn't a good one, but Elliot didn't question me, th

I glanced out the large, glass window at my side, looking into the hallway where nurses and doctors strolled by. I had been in the ICU for three days, two of them spent unconscious, too drugged to know what was going on yesterday, and now today. Today I could go back to the regular rooms. I could have some visitors other then my mother again.
She hadn't been much company. She went home after six, now, and came back around nine. Or so I was told. I hardly seen her at all. I didn't know exactly why she was so adverse to talking to me. She had so many good reasons. My lying.

"Yeah," I said, laughing slightly. My hands started to sweat as I stayed silent, suddenly unable to think of something to say.

The water that I tracked across the living room and through the kitchen looked like I spilled red, water-color paint across the house.

I had hated the small, dark room with its gray walls and concrete floor, the smell of detergent thick in the air, since we bought the house.Edge Part 50: I Want You7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I pulled my shirt and jeans off, the fabric making a suction sound as it pealed away from me. I searched around in the clean clothes hamper next to the dryer for anything I could put on that was dry.

I even found a towel, using it to clean my face and dry my already damp hai

He just kept his eyes buried in the yellowed pages of his book, leaning on his elbow, pupils seeming to scan the pages quicker than humanly possible. Occasionally the teacher would call on him, and unhesitating he would answer her questions in as few words as possible, his eyes never straying from his text. At one point, I couldn't help but get the impression that he was reading the best damn book ever and I leaned over, trying to glimpse at the pages. As hard as I tried, I couldn't seem to make out exactly what was written. It took me three full sentences before I realized that his book wasn't even in English. . . I knew some Spanish from taking two years of it, and I knew just a small bit of French, it being the language my mother paid sixty bucks a class for. . . Quitting after a month.

I stared after his fleeing form, and frowned. So even Damion had things he was hiding from people. That made me feel fairly better; it couldnt be that he was all perfect, after all. I followed him into the school, stale air immediately hitting me. It was going to be another day, after all. The hall was still crowded with students bustling about and chattering to one another.

I didn't have senses like Elliot did, and I wouldn't have even know where to start. And to top it all off, it was already dark by the time I finally was forced to stop waiting for him. I felt Elliot's arm wrap around me, his breath against the back of my neck.

The gesture seemed overly kind for someone that had used words like: prick bastard and son of a bitch, to describe their sibling but in truth he was delighted to have his Brother back in the fold as it were. He had tried for so long to force Adrian into accepting his other half, his better half as he saw it.

I made my way up the three tall, cracking cement steps to the old gray door and shallow porch, marked off by a rusting wrought iron rail. I didn't understand it. The inside was beautiful, I knew... In fact, it was spotless and comfortable, but the outside was in such disrepair. The wooden siding was a mix of green lichens and weather-worn white paint, now yellowed and chipping. If it hadn't have been for the curtains in the windows and the dull lulling of music coming from inside, someone might have thought the place was abandoned.
