”Everyone has a dark side which he never shows to anybody”: short story
Everyone has a dark side so they say, we met some years back, it was the spring of 2009 back in my first year of college. I thought meeting him would be the start of something new, just like spring when flowers bloom. We got to know each other slowly, he was like a breath of fresh air at first just want I needed, dinner, movies, concerts we had a great time. By the summer of 2009 I was convinced it was love! By October as the season turned to autumn so did he, he turned, his dark side came out no more Mr Nice Guy.
It was just little things at first I noticed were weird about him, his fascination with death and dying, being immortal which he somehow thought he was. ” What a joker” I’d say to him ” you’re weird mate, no one is immortal, no one lives forever.”
He’d always want to go to the cemetery just ” for a walk” he’d say, who the hell goes to the cemetery ” just for a walk” ? Ropes, chains and duck tape started to appear around his home, when I’d go over on a weekend and ask him what they were for, he’d laugh it off and say he was just doing some DIY around the house. I thought nothing of it, bought the story after all he’s a man they do DIY all the time don’t they… Is that normal ropes, duck tape, chains and all sorts? I wouldn’t have minded at all if it was some kind of kinky sex game he wanted to try out with the ropes and tape, hey, I read 50 Shades of Grey- Mr Grey is H.O.T, he could tie me up anytime if that was is thang. I’d tease him, ask him when he was ganna tie me up and make love to me? He’d just look at me with a sinister look in his eye and a smirk on his face- not a look that said he’d tie me up and show me a good time. Still, I brushed it off as nothing, he was perfect we were in love … remember.
As October progressed Halloween rolled around we were at a friend’s party we dressed up as vampires with matching teeth and fake blood. I must admit he looked pretty hot, think of Eric from True Blood, my spine tingles at the thought of how good he looked, slick hair, pale skinned, dark eyes, black suit and tie, sinister. Me I went all out with my stockings and suspenders, 4 inch heals and corset under a cape fake bite marks all up my thighs I made a very sexy vampire, we were the centre of attention when it came to costumes.
Something strange happened, at midnight we went outside for some fresh air and a smoke, as I lit my cigarette he looked up at the sky and said in low tones ” it’s a full moon” he let out some kind of growl too. I said to myself this guy he has a dark side. My mind went back to the ropes, chains and duck tape, now he was growling at the fucking moon? What was this??
He grabbed me, bit me hard on my left breast, hard enough to draw blood I screamed out loud ” what the hell are you doing you werido?” I pushed him off and took a step back. The night air was so cold I could see his breath in the air and the heavy rise and fall of his chest. He looked me dead in the eye and said
” The freaks come out at night” he laughed as he licked my blood from his lips. I looked down at my breast and the mark that remained from his bite.
That’s when I said to myself this guy’s weird everyone has a dark side, (which) he doesn’t show to anyone.
