Psychosis

By DarkHunterEcstasy

Horror / Thriller

Chapter 1

Ice draped itself with an eerie grace over every object in its vicinity. Long and slender, oh so deceptive fingers tipped with diamond talons that tore through the flesh of every horrid and nauseating mortal...the ones that dared to think that they were of a higher authority than the omniscient being that reigned over them with an iron fist.

Cold tendrils pierce the heart...

Savor the screams...

The fire that tore through shriveled veins roared with a clear and passionate ache.

Fulfillment.

His tongue traced over his lips, wetting the pale flesh as a deep groan escaped his mouth.

Hungry.

He was hungry.

With a sniff, long and cold, slender fingers traced over the head of thick, pink hair. A warm, sticky wetness clung to his fingertips, and the faint iron tang followed with a dark fervor.

Teeth digging into his lips hard enough to draw blood, he rose to his feet without a noise. The head in his hand swung by the bloodstained hairs clutched in pale and skeletal fingers, and clouded rose eyes gazed with a morbid curiosity.

He swallowed hard, the taste of warm blood and flesh coating the inside of his mouth. Moaning in simple pleasure at the presence of the liquid and battered skin, he made his way to the crumbling and smoking remnants of the entrance to the arena.

She was waiting for him by the door, the sun reflecting off of and illuminating her green hair. Her expression was one of solitude and contentment at his pleasure.

"Have you had your fill?"

Deep mauve eyes burned with a hellish sort of satisfaction. "What does it look like, witch?"

Flicking her green hair from her face with a graceful yet deadly twist of her neck, the immortal woman smiled softly. "I don't need you biting my head off, now, do I?"

"Keep talking and I will consider it." A purple gaze narrowed as the faint sound of clattering hooves and uninteresting chatter drifted over to then. "Why have they returned so early?"

"Perhaps they were impatient, much like you are.

He gave a huff of a laugh, the charred wind making dark strands of his hair sway almost enticingly around the pale muscle and bone of his neck.

"Should we wait for them?"

He was silent for a moment as he shook his head. "No, not now. They will have enough on their hands."

She was silent for a moment before she placed a cool hand on the taller being's arm. "Do you think this was a wise decision?"

The former prince fixed his darkened glare on the witch. "Are you doubting my motives?"

C.C. grinned softly, the wind making her lime hair wave oh so enticingly around her. "However you think of it, you just killed and ate your sister. I think it is right of me to have some sort of doubt."

The young man moved without warning, and then he was pinning the woman to the nearest wall. He loomed over her, a pillar of dark strength and hunger that burned with a feverish passion.

She shuddered as he leaned close, tracing bloody and cool lips over the shell of her ear. His voice was a grave whisper, and his breath, still laced with the scent of burned flesh and blood, lapped against her sweat-slicked skin.

"Watch your tone, immortal. You may not be able to die, but that does not mean I cannot make your life a living hell."

She panted heavily, shuddering beneath the icy weight of his body.

Lelouch grinned, grinding his hips and his erection against her waist as he sunk his sharpened teeth into the flesh of her neck, groaning at the gasp that came from her. He did nothing more, straightening and heading out towards the back entrance, uncaring of the corpses littering the field of the stadium.

"It would do you good to remember that you belong to me."

C.C. let out a heavy breath. She had dealt with past men like this before, but Lelouch was different. He had some sort of power of her, some sort of demented influence that was no doubt something that was not good for her. She knew she should get away while she had the chance, but they were hopelessly attracted to each other.

Based on what she had just witnessed, the young prince was more than capable enough to subdue her if she tried to escape.

"C.C."

She turned. Lelouch had stopped in his tracks, his hauntingly beautiful eyes locked on her.

"Yes?"

The young man tilted his head, licking the rest of the blood off of his lips with a salacious smirk. "The soldiers are coming. Take care of them for me, would you? I have to get back to class."

The witch picked up the sounds of approaching footsteps and the increasing roar of frenzied and furious voices.

She smiled.

"It would be my pleasure."

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...
