Ew. Kory jerked his hand back. He had touched a corpse!
He was about to stand and get away from the thing when blackened eyelids flew open. Kory shrieked, trying to run, but only managed to fall on his ass. He tried to get his bearings, but the corpse flew at him, pinning him down before opening his mouth, revealing sharp fangs.
“For this, I am truly sorry.”
Kory screamed as the vampire bit into his neck, his voice echoing in the woods as his vision blurred.
He knew he should have taken a different path.
Shoving his hands into the thing’s chest, Kory tried to dislodge the man, but the vampire was too strong for him to easily push away. “Stop,” Kory begged breathlessly. “You’re going to kill me.”
The sucking at his neck slowed, but the man didn’t release him. The sensation had gone from painful, to something that had him wondering if he was losing his mind. The slow burn became…pleasurable.
Oh, gross! Now he was being turned on by a corpse. Wouldn’t his mother be so proud of him? She said he needed to get out and date more, but this was just plain morbid. Even with those thoughts, Kory’s cock became hard, throbbing between his legs as the man’s hands slid to his back, pulling him closer. There was no way for Kory to resist, not when the hold on him was like steel bands wrapped around his body.
“O–okay, you got your protein fix. Can you release me now?” Kory shoved again, but this time a little more gently. The sharp fangs slipped from his neck, a coarse tongue lapping at the wound.
Well, duh. The guy was a vampire. It was a given that the sun was burning this man alive. But the vampire was too big for Kory to toss over his shoulder and carry out of the woods. Maybe Kory could cover him in leaves and come back for him later.
Normally Kory was a helpful guy, always lending a hand to those who needed it. But helping the corpse come back to life didn’t seem like a very wise idea. Maybe he could give the guy a few bucks to catch a cab somewhere. His mother always complained that he brought home strays, but this would take the cake.
When the guy opened his eyes again, Kory inhaled deeply. Never before had he seen eyes so beautiful, so desperate. His head told him to skedaddle, but his conscience told him to find some way to get the guy out of the sun.
“What’s your name?”
“Your mother really didn’t like you, did she?” Kory glanced around, searching the forest floor for anything he could use to help him move the guy. He spotted a squirrel scurrying away and his white wolf jumped up and down, wanting to chase. Another squirrel joined the first and the temptation was almost too much.
Kory debated whether he had enough time to play, but no doubt the vampire would soon join the circle of life and become nothing more than bug food if Kory didn’t help. Sighing heavily, Kory found some thick vines and fashioned them into a crude sling.
His mother was going to throw a fit when he dragged this carcass home. Tying an end to each of the vampire’s shoulders, Kory wrapped the binding around his chest and began to walk. His leg muscles shook. It felt like he was trying to walk through quicksand. Just how much did the guy weigh? The man was more solid than he looked.
After three hours of pulling, Kory finally had to rest. Sweating profusely, he sat, stretching out his sore limbs. He’d never worked so hard in his life, and for a complete stranger! “You’re making me miss dinner and the new episode of The Walking Dead. You owe me for this, buddy.”
The corpse grabbed his wrist and sank his fangs in deeply.
The piercing pain shot up his arm as Kory yelped, kicking at the guy’s body. “You are going to stop using me as an express snack bar. I only have so much blood, and you’ve drained half of it already. Save some for me. I can hear my tissue slowly shriveling up.”
The vampire pulled his fangs free and Kory noticed that the burns were slowly healing. The guy no longer resembled a corpse. Black hair that had been matted and dry just hours before now held an illustrious shine. There were still twigs and leaves and embedded in the strands, but the guy’s hair no longer looked like it belonged to a briar patch. His crispy face and blackened eyes began to smooth out to reveal a man that was quite handsome in Kory’s opinion.
I really do need to get out and date more.
“Am I dreaming?”
“No, my love.” Dante’s lips pressed into Kory’s wet shoulder. Kory leaned his forehead into the tiled wall, gasping as Dante’s hands continued to brush over his skin. “This is real and I am going to take you tonight.”
Kory closed his eyes, pressing his cheek into the wall as Dante’s fingers slid between the crease in his ass, slid over his aching hole. Kory’s heart sped up as his chest tightened. Dante turned Kory. The man was so much taller, so much stronger, yet there was gentleness in his eyes that left Kory speechless.
He took in the man’s strong physique, his hard abs, strong pecs, and an erection that appeared twice the size of Kory’s. He was mesmerized.
“Touch me, my love.”
With a shaky hand, Kory reached out and brushed his fingers along Dante’s hard shaft, the vampire hissing at the contact. Dante dipped his head, his tongue demanding against Kory’s lips. It was a demand that speared through him as Dante gripped Kory’s hips and brought them closer. He allowed his tongue to caress, to taste, and yet Kory wanted more. Releasing Dante’s cock, Kory’s hands slid over Dante’s biceps, pulling the man closer, biting at Dante’s lower lip. Their bodies were being pelted by water and Kory could care less. All he knew was Dante in the moment and all he wanted was to get closer than they already were.
Dante pressed Kory into the wall, his thigh insinuating itself between Kory’s. Dante lifted him and Kory could feel his sac pressing hard against that muscled thigh. His entire body felt like one exposed nerve, sensitive and receptive to Dante’s touch. When Dante lifted his head, he looked down at Kory with blistering heat in his eyes.
The look sent shivers through Kory’s body. “When you look at me like that, you don’t seem like the dead guy I found.” Kory winced.
Way to be smooth, numbskull.
Dante chuckled. “That’s a good thing.”
Kory’s cheeks burned. “Can we get out of here? I’m turning into a prune.” He wanted to hide from Dante and his mortification.
Turning, Dante shut the water off and then before Kory knew what was happening, Dante had them in the bedroom, lying next to each other, their cocks touching. Kory forgot about his embarrassment. He forgot about everything in the goddamn world as Dante moved over him, suckling at one of Kory’s nipples. An electric jolt shot through him, making Kory groan Dante’s name—and a few explicit words after that.
The way Dante was touching him had Kory rolling his head from side to side, gasping for breath. The man knew what he was doing. Dante’s touches were like water cascading over his skin. Kory almost whimpered as Dante began to suckle on his other nipple.
The man eased Kory’s legs open and slid the tip of one finger over his pulsating hole. Kory jerked from the intimate touch.
“Relax.” Dante’s voice was like a purr in his throat, raspy and erotic, a smooth timbre that soothed Kory’s worries. Kory couldn’t stop the shiver that wracked his body. The thought of his mom and brothers sleeping a few walls away kept Kory quiet, but what Dante was doing to him had Kory ready to shout, to scream for the man to never stop.
Dante’s body moved over Kory’s, his lips caressing Kory’s skin. Kory practically squirmed under the man, wanting Dante closer as the moonlight spilled into the room. Dante began to move lower and a blast of heat flooded Kory. His chest rose and fell as he watched Dante take Kory into his mouth.
“Oh, god,” Kory whimpered the words as he felt hard muscles locking him in place, stopping him from jerking under Dante. Firm fingers slid down Kory’s inner thigh as the other hand moved to spread Kory’s cheeks once more. This time Dante’s fingers were wet when they circled Kory’s intimate opening. One lone finger slipped inside Kory’s body and he thought he was going to lose his mind. “Dante!”
Kory tensed, clenching his cheeks before he finally relaxed. Dante took Kory’s cock down his throat, suckling Kory’s erection like it was his favorite treat. It was all too much. Kory couldn’t hold back. He shuddered and jerked as an explosion went off inside of him. He came hard, his semen shooting down Dante’s throat as he fought not to scream the man’s name.
He was a liquid pool of bonelessness as Dante pulled back. But his finger remained deep in Kory’s body, moving in ways that had Kory jerking. Dante leaned down and kissed Kory’s inner thigh before sinking his fangs deep. Kory couldn’t stop the shout as he came again, his cock pulsing as his seed spurted free. The vampire drank as Kory drifted along, no worries, no responsibilities. It was just him and Dante and nothing else.
