A little snippet inspired by @ahumanfemale and I’s Barisi vampire!AU that we’re collaborating on. <3
Sonny traced the bite marks on his neck in the mirror, a constellation against pale skin to be mapped.
Circular, deep, breaking flesh and vein; a pair, surrounded by dark clouds of purple and flecks of blue that intermingle and dance hooded patterns from underneath his chin.
He thumbs at the bruise, feels the even rhythm of his heartbeat thundering beneath it, and feels like he belongs.
The blood pounding heavy and hot throughout his veins, to his heart, powering the ticking of the pulse that he felt underneath the thick skin of his neck, the skin that Rafael had pierced with teeth the night before as he’d mouthed and drank until Sonny’s own blood had quenched the mass of emptiness in his gut as he’d pushed in – it was all his now.
To take from, to hold to, to claim.
Every piece was Rafael’s.
Sonny’s body, to satisfy his thirst.
Sonny’s skin, to imprint with fingertip-shaped bruises until the spread of his narrow hips was an ode to Rafael’s ministrations.
Sonny’s heart, to dig into with both hands.
Sonny’s soul, to take if he so wished, and breathe new life into again.
