More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.
(This is still a work in progress and the following lines have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)
Picking up from last week, Gregor has told Kaen that he knows he is a vampire, and has drawn a small golden dagger from his belt, asking Kaen if he recognized it.
Kaen rose slowly as he stared at the blade resting on the palm of Gregor’s hand. “Yes,” he said, his voice little more than a whisper as he stared at the ceremonial blade: less than three inches from tip to heel, it held him enthralled.
“Then you know what I am offering.”
Kaen could not seem to look away from the blade: it held him, entranced, mesmerized, and it drew him from behind his desk and he reached out and stroked one finger along the intricate etchings in the blade and licked his lips softly.
“Do you accept?”
Kaen pulled his gaze away from the knife to stare into Gregor’s eyes.
The man’s gaze was calm and steady: he knew full well what he was doing, what he was offering to the vampire and Kaen felt a shiver of anticipation run through him.
