The vampire slowly stalked its prey, teeth bared in a terrifying grimace. Powerful thigh muscles encased in tight black denim jeans flexed perceptibly.

The young man backed away slowly, eyes flitting wildly from side to side, desperately seeking an avenue of escape. He darted to the left but the creature moved with preternatural speed, cutting him off.

He swung around and tried to run but was flung against a wall and spun around to face his tormentor, who braced his arms on either side of the boy’s head, effectively trapping him in a prison of pale flesh.

“Why? Why are you doing this to me?” His voice dropped to a whisper. “Please let me go,” he begged.

His persecutor simply dropped his head and licked a broad wet stripe up his prey’s neck, from shoulder to jaw.

The young man shuddered.

Why had he uttered those fateful words? 'Come in.'

'Said the spider to the fly.' An hysterical giggle bubbled up as the rider leapt unbidden into his mind but he ruthlessly suppressed it.

He should have known his impulsiveness would lead to this – to torture at the hands of this merciless undead creature.

But at the time they were spoken those words had risen to his lips with a careless insouciance that belied his knowledge of the ways of vampires - knowledge gained the hard way, through years of first-hand experience.

The demon’s mouth fastened onto his neck, directly over his wildly fluttering pulse point, and teeth scraped against his tender skin.

The action was unmistakeably that of a dominator, demanding submission.

Begging had done no good so far, but he had to try again.

“Spike, please. You know you don’t want to do this. Why won’t you leave me alone? I thought you … you cared!”

Spike pulled back and gazed into the wounded brown eyes of his lover. He sighed heavily.

“I do care, Xan. I love you,” he said earnestly. “Never doubt it, pet. That’s why I can’t stand to see you in pain.”

“That’s why you have to go to the dentist and get that bloody tooth pulled!”

The End
