Killer Secret

Horror

Chapter 1

"Tell me a secret."

She smiles, swirling her drink and looking down at the olive that slowly rolls at the bottom of her martini glass. She looks up through her lashes, biting her bottom lip, making the man she is talking to shift in his seat and eye the plump flesh between her teeth. 

"A secret?" she asks. 

"Yeah," he says, distracted, but blinking rapidly to look back up at her, a smile back on his face. He is Wallstreet, she can tell, and smells of expensive cologne and money. His hair is perfect, his teeth is perfect... Everything about his is just... Perfect

"Any secret?" He nods. "Hmm..."

She ponders, slowly bringing her drink back up to her lips. The glass already has a red imprint from earlier sips and she adds to it, ankle bouncing, a playful air about her. She adds effect, twisting a lock of her raven black hair, seeming in deep thought before giggling. 

"I actually really hate martinis," she says, making him laugh as she puts the drink he bought her down on the damp napkin. Though he laughs, she can see the clench in his hand, and the tick in his jaw. Irritation. Anger... She can smell it. "Is that rude of me?"

"Of course not," he answers, drinking from his beer, setting an empty class down on the bar. The hand that had been holding his glass ends up on her knee and she smiles as it massages slow circles up the hem of her red dress, fingertips brushing her inner thigh. She loves this dress, and wore it for this reason. Men love it, it hugs her figure tightly and she knows it makes her look damn good. "If you are done with that drink..."

"I am," she answers breathlessly, leaning forward, showcasing her breasts, his eyes lower to them before up to her gleaming, emerald eyes. "Shall we go?"

She slides off her stool, grabbing her clutch, and his hand is already at her hip and gripping it possessively as they weave through the bar crowd. It is a small bar, and it doesn't take them long to exit through the back. The door locks behind them as he grips her hair fiercely and twists them around. He presses his lips to hers, desperate while almost slamming her body into the brick wall. She sighs, returning the kiss, knee between his legs now, pressing, making him groan. 

"I need to have you," he groans, hands groping every inch of flesh they can find. Her breasts. Her shoulders. Her hips. Her ass. Nothing is left untouched and she allows it, lips swelling from his harsh kiss. 

"You do?"

"Yes..."

"Can I tell you something? Another secret?" she asks, hand coming up, fingernails scratching at his scalp. Her voice is alluring, an almost purr. He stills, looking up at her. Her green eyes are even brighter here, in the dark, and he is entranced. 

"Anything..." he says softly, grip on her softening. 

"I knew from the moment I saw you..." She leans forward, lips to his ear. "That I wanted to kill you."

"What? Bitch, you-" Her hand at his throat halts his words and she squeezes. He chokes, eyes bulging as his hands go to her delicate wrist, trying to break her hold. Alas, it is futile. 

"What's the matter baby?" She allows her lips to part, giving him a view of her now protruding fangs. "Don't like what you see anymore?"

He tries to scream. She can smell his fear now. It is intoxicating. She actually laughs before striking, fangs slicing into his neck like a hot knife through butter. The burst of blood on her tongue is erotic and she moans as she drinks his life source. She is greedy, whipping their positions around now as she has her fill of him, the wet sound of her suckling his blood a turn-on for her... Not so much for him. When his heart stops she lets him go, the now corpse falling at her feet. Licking her lips she laughs once more, spinning away from the dead human. The world was better without him. A cheater with no qualms of picking up women with a ring on his finger. A piece of trash now where it belonged, on the ground... Forgotten. 

Like her.

Sighing she fluffs her hair, wiping at her lips before digging in her clutch to find her lipstick. Slowly, she reapplies the make-up, the art of applying it without a mirror practiced. She looks down and sees a small stain on the red fabric of her dress... Blood, but hidden enough to not be noticed. Slipping her lipstick back into her clutch she slowly walks out of the alley, hips swaying to an unheard beat, already looking for a new kill. 

The night was still young... And she was still very, very hungry.

Clarissa: Very atmospheric and descriptive language, with good character development. This is a complex and interesting story - definitely worth a read.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Shannon Rohrer: This is probably one of the most imaginative stories I've come across in a long time. You have hooking down to a fine art; every chapter has been as engaging as the one before it, the story unfurling in a way that is easy to follow and paced perfectly for each round of events or backstory. Lookin...

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

duggsy: This kept me intrigued, I only intended on reading 1 chapter but couldn't stop until I'd read the whole thing. The only let-down were a few spelling mistakes hence the 3 stars but otherwise a great read.

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...
