He even tied my thumbs together. Thorough. Annoyingly thorough. I couldn’t get enough leverage to break free. I needed to get out. I needed to FEED. I could feel the darkness inside, starting to boil up. The toothy maw of a beast threatened to swallow me whole if I didn’t eat soon. It hurt. My body screamed for blood. For red-hot delicious lifeblood.
My stomach growled. I got light-headed. My skin crawled. I needed to get free. I needed to eat. I needed it. If I didn’t get it, I’d die.
“Let. Me. Go.”
“No. Not yet. Not until you tell me something. You give me what I want, I give you what you want. Understand?”
Clever. We should eat him. Rip out his heart, squish it in our hands, pour the blood in our mouth. Like an over-ripe peach."
