Rebecca stared at him wide-eyed for a long time. Then, she giggled.
“Felix, you don’t look anything like a vampire and I’ve had my head on your chest and heard your heartbeat and...? Wait, you said their hearts do beat though. Are you for real?” She asked, ending her question in a whisper.
He nodded, then begged, “Please don’t be scared of me.”
She just shook her head, showing him, she wasn’t.
So, he closed his eyes and took a deep breath. Taking in her scent, he allowed his beast to move forward to see his Geliebte (Beloved). When, he opened his eyes, he found her closer to him, her eyes wide as she stared at his now sharper vampiric features.
He knew his cheekbones had broadened slightly to allow for the extra teeth he now had. His forehead over his eyes was now bumped out, which created wrinkles over his nose, and his eyes would now have an almost feline slant to them. He also knew his eyes were red and ringed in blue, a sure sign of arousal in a vampire. The sight of them was proof that the scent of his Geliebte aroused him. His fangs were now on full display.
“You really are...!” She said in a breathless voice.
It was a sound that went straight south, causing his cock to harden. This caused him to hiss out around his fangs, “Ja, Geliebte. I am, and you are mine!”
She cocked her head. “Yours?”
“Ja. For every vampire there is the perfect person who completes us in every way. Sadly, sometimes our beast never finds that person. For me though, you are that perfect one, you are meine Geliebte!”
“Perfect person...completes you...your beloved? I wondered why you called me that when we first met,” She mumbled. “So, I’m like your soulmate? Is that what you’re saying Felix?”
“Is that why from the moment I saw you this morning; I wanted to ask you where you’ve been all my life? Is that why, when you gently cleaned my hands you made me feel so cared for and wanted?” She asked, and he nodded in agreement to each of her questions. “It was such a weird feeling to have since, I’d just met you!”
“Ja, you felt a little of the bond pulling on your psyche; and I am so glad,” he said. Then he pulled her into his arms and ran his nose along her neck. “You smell so sweet meine Geliebte. Will you let me have just a taste to see if you taste as good as you smell?”
He heard her heartbeat pick up once more as her breathing became more erratic.
“I-I’m not sure. Will it hurt?”
“Nein. It will give us both much pleasure and increase the strength of our bond.” He responded.
“Will you kill me by taking too much?”
“Nein, I only want a taste which if put in a glass would only be a few swallows,” he answered. “You are everything to me, and if I was to kill you I would be killing myself. Now that I’ve found you, I don’t want to be without you ever again.”
“Will it turn me into a vampire like you?” She then questioned.
“Nein. For you to become as I am, it takes much more than one small bite. Although, if you choose to become as I am later you may, or I can begin to age as you do so we may die of old age.”
“Oh-okay then. I suppose it would be alright,” she whispered.
Getting off the bed, he moved to stand between her thighs and cupped the back of her head with one hand. The other hand he used to move her hair from her neck. He couldn’t kiss very well with his fangs fully extended the way they were, so instead, he leaned in and gently licked his way down her neck. When he reached her pulse point, he swirled his tongue around it, numbing the skin there.
She began to moan a bit as her hands reached up and held on to the front of his shirt.
After numbing the area, he bit down, and her blood rushed over his tongue, making him moan at the sweetness of her flavor. It was like nothing he had ever tasted before. He had heard his older Bruders speak of how good blood was from the vein, and even better from their Geliebtes, but he had never fed from the vein until now. This was his first bite ever and her flavor was highly addicting!
Forcing himself to stop, he pulled back and gazed at her. His fangs were now retracted and his features normal. He asked, “Did it hurt?”
Her eyes fluttered open and she smiled at him and said, “No, in fact it felt good.”
“It felt good for me also. This is the first time I’ve actually taken from the vein.”
Her eyes widened at that. “But...isn’t that how you, eat?”
“Nein. I drink my blood from a glass, or bottle. When my Bruders Leo and Bruno were young, and maybe even Tobias, it was acceptable to take from the vein, but not now. If we were to feed from the vein now and kill someone, the hunters would come after us.”
“Where does the blood come from then?” She asked.
Kicking off his shoes, and taking hers off also, he moved her further up on the bed. Laying down and getting comfortable, he cuddled her into his side.
“There is a special company run by vampires that gets the blood for us. We buy it much like when you buy groceries from a store. I suppose they get their supply the same way a hospital does, but I’m not sure. I know there are a few humans who know about us, so perhaps they are paid to donate,” he explained.
“Hm...so what would happen if you decided you like the vein better and began hunting humans for blood? Not killing them, just taking a bit?” She asked as she looked up at him.
“I’m not sure exactly. That is something you would need to ask Kendra. She’s Tobias’ Geliebte. She was a hunter before they got together. But I suppose if you didn’t harm them...” he sighed. “I wouldn’t want to take that chance though Kitten. Because, though I have never done it before, it felt so good to bite, and the taste was so much better than anything out of a bottle. Plus, it’s so warm, it would be so easy to go too far because of how good it was.”
“But you drank from me and stopped,” she said.
Turning on his side, he turned her to face him and they lay there gazing at each other for a moment before he said, “Ja, but you are meine Geliebte, and as such, I will need a bit of your blood daily anyway, now that I have found you. It will keep our bond strong, and it will also keep my beast alive. It’s different with you Kitten, because, as meine Geliebte, you will give it willingly, it is not taken from you by force. That is why I ask if I could, and I always will.”
“So, I could have said no?”
“Ja, you could have, and I would have respected that. Although, I would not have liked being denied,” he admitted in a mumble as he looked down and away from her eyes.
He looked back up, unable to deny the sound of her voice.
“I wouldn’t do that to you, deny you what you need, not on purpose,” she whispered. Her hand came up and she ran it along his jaw, creating shivers of need just at her touch.
He leaned in, and she raised her lips up to meet his. He moaned, longing for more; but he knew she wasn’t ready for that, so he pulled back.
“Felix, why did you stop,” she whispered as her eyes fluttered open.
“Because if I continue, I’m going to want more,” he explained with a soft sigh. “Kitten, I need to explain something to you, and I hope it will help you understand better.”
“Okay, I’m listening.”
“For a vampire there can only be one, you are my one. If something was to ever happen to you, I would have no will to live because you are it for me. When I mark you as mine I will do whatever it takes to keep you happy and safe.”
“Ja. We’ve already taken the first step by you saying, “ja” to my bite. The next step would be when I give you a bit of my blood, that is when a mark will appear right about...” he moved his hand up and ran a finger along her neck right below her hairline in the back, “...here. This mixes our scent, so if another vampire were to come across you, he would know that you belong to another.”
“Okay that I understand. It sounds as if fiction got somethings right anyway,” she said with a bit of a giggle.
“Ja, maybe they did,” he agreed. “So, the mark is a symbol, kind of like a wedding ring is to a human.”
Her eyes widened at that. “Wedding ring? Oh, now wait a minute! I’m only eighteen Felix, I’m not sure I’m ready for marriage and, and...!”
“Sh... calm down Kitten. I know,” he said calmly as he wrapped her up tight in his arms. “That is why I stopped earlier. I feel as if you have been protected most of your life and are innocent in more than just your body.”
“Maybe I am, but Felix, marriage is a big step, sex is an even bigger one,” she whispered.
“I know Kitten, I know,” he murmured as he held her. He gave a soft sigh as he thought, I want her, and it is going to be very hard to deny what my body desperately craves, but for her I will deny myself, even if it means a LOT of cold showers!
Despite his sexual frustration, he continued to lay and enjoy having his sweet Kitten in his arms. Though his body continued to urge him to take her, he continued to deny it and tried to keep himself calm. He knew she wasn’t ready for intimacy, sadly, because he was more than ready. Of course, he was much, much older than her, and had been waiting so much longer.
He sighed as he kissed the top of her head. He was eighty-five and had never been intimate with a woman. Sure, he had stolen a few kisses, what young man didn’t, but he always knew he wanted his soulmate to be his first in everything else. He had also hoped he wasn’t waiting in vain because a lot of vampires never found their Geliebtes.
He also knew that he needed to finish the marking, or she would suffer the effects of the bond in a couple of days. He wanted to spare her the agony of the bond sickness, which included flu like symptoms, and the horrible burning sensation if anyone but him touched her. The question is, will she let me?
“Hmm...?” She murmured sounding sleepy.
“Could we at least finish the marking process by you taking my blood?” He asked her softly.
She raised her head to look at him. Her eyes roamed over his face as if trying to figure something out before she nodded.
He smiled at her, happy she had agreed. So, sitting up, he tugged off his shirt.
She gave a slight gasp.
He paused and looked at her.
She was staring at his chest as if she had never seen one before. Then slowly she reached out and lay her palm on it. She began to move her hand down over his rib-cage, her eyes following its movement.
He bit back a groan as her touch sent ripples of pleasure through him.
“Kitten,” he whispered as a groan of pure longing escaped him. “Kiss me.”
She moved so that she was up on her knees next to him.
He closed his eyes, his head falling back as he felt her mouth move across his skin. He whimpered low as he felt her tongue swirl around his nipple making it become pebble hard.
When she began to retreat, he grabbed at her, holding her to him for a moment before pulling her over to straddle his legs. He then murmured, “More please Kitten, I need more….”
Her mouth returned, kissing, nipping and sucking all over his neck and chest. The feelings she gave him almost cut off his ability to speak. So, with a guttural groan, he fell back on the bed, pleasure moving through his body like hot lava. He began to move his hands along her spine, downward until he found the hem of her shirt. Once there, he slid under it to feel her warm skin, and he once more groaned.
“You make me feel so good Kitten,” he told her.
She pulled away for a moment.
Opening his eyes to a slit, he found her removing her shirt. He gazed at her chest, her breasts covered in a lacy bra that her rosy buds showed through. Giving a slightly pained whimper, in German he asked, “Ah Kitten what are you doing to me?”
“I want to feel your skin on mine. I-I know I shouldn’t, but I need...”
He pulled her down until their chests met and he felt the friction of her soft skin against the hair on his chest. Still speaking in German, he murmured, “I know Kitten; I need it too....”
He kissed her rough and hard then, almost grinding their lips together until she opened.
She slipped the very tip of her tongue out and slid it along his lower lip causing his to almost hiss with the need to have more of her.
Flipping her over so he hovered over her, he pushed his tongue in to run it alongside hers, tasting and feeling every inch. His hand moved up to cup her breast and she whimpered as she arched her back. He left her mouth then to kiss along her neck. Lower and lower he went, kissing her shoulder then the top of her chest.
“Felix,” she whined.
He raised his head to look at her.
“Please what Kitten?”
She continued to gaze into his eyes as if she could tell him what she wanted that way. Finally, placing her hands on the back of his head, she pushed him down toward her breast. She again murmured, “Please.”
Always willing to please her, he pushed her bra aside. He then sucked one of her rosy buds into his mouth.
She let out a light scream of pleasure, her back arching.
Moving his leg, he placed it between her thighs and rubbed. He found pleasure in the sounds she made, and it was almost his undoing! He needed to stop though, or he soon wouldn’t be able to!
So, lifting his head and shaking it to clear the lusty fog, he moved back over to his side of the bed and took a deep breath. Next, lengthening a nail, he pulled it across his chest as he pulled her head toward him. Then, he whispered, ”Trinken Meine Geliebte.” (Drink my Beloved)
She began to suck, taking his blood and completing their bond. When the wound closed, she raised up and looked at him.
He pulled her head down, lightly licking his blood from her lips, and then kissed her.
“I didn’t expect it to be sweet,” she murmured.
“Mm... yours is most delicious too Kitten,” he said. He then moved her hair around, so he could see her neck. Seeing his mark on her, he said, “Beautiful.”
“What does it look like?” She asked.
“It is a falcon with my initials under it. You are now marked as mine, now all that is left are our vows,” he told her softly.
She lay her arm across his chest then and propped her chin in her hand as she looked at him. “What vows?”
“When we are intimate for the first time, I will make a vow to you. It will be much like those given at a human wedding, and you will repeat what I say in your own words. In the vampire community this, along with your mark is as good as a human certificate of marriage.”
“Ah...so the mark is...” she stared into space a bit, then grinned. “A symbol of our love to each other.”
“As I said earlier, more like a wedding ring, but a permanent one that cannot be lost,” he said. “Kitten, even without the vows being said as soon as I gave you that mark, you became my wife. The rest is just the consummation of it all.”
She raised an eyebrow but didn’t look upset as he had feared she might be.
“So, I’m your wife now, am I? Didn’t I tell you I was too young to be married?” She teased.
“Ja, ja, you did, but it is still how I feel,” he informed her. Then said, “If you were ready for all of it, I wouldn’t have stopped what we started a little bit…!”
“Felix! Veronica has dinner ready if you and the ...um...yeah, dinners ready!” Bruno yelled, interrupting him.
Felix closed his eyes and groaned. He then grumbled under his breath, “Leave it to Bruno to ruin my moment.”
