Barbara stared at the naked man on the dirty floor. A half-bred; a mouth-watering hunk of heavy muscles. He mostly resembled a human, except for the massive bodybuilder, sharp elf-like ears, and long dirty nails. She knelt beside him, carefully running her fingers through his hair. So soft and curly!
She trailed to caress his cheek, delighting in the feeling of the stubble along his strong, masculine jaw. His attractive features made her pulse quicken. Barbara tilted her head and gently ran her fingers from his shoulders to his broad chest, feeling the muscles against her skin. Heat spread inside her.
It has been a long since she sees a magnificent creature like him. After being locked inside the dirty caged of the Underworld’s company, her mind was getting wild. She opposed getting closer to the test subjects. They are assertive and troublesome.
Some of the males want her submission. But, the freedom of being alone is intoxicating. She growls and fights until they are defeated. She regularly perceived the crazy people in the white laboratory coat dragged the subjects in and out the door. The room was a prison to them. Two to three test subjects shared a cell room. The cells were set in rows. Hers posited at the corner of the room nearer a small hole that illuminated the room.
It is more like her calamity.
She used to be one of them. She was a scientist who contributed to a private project before everything did not go as planned. Likewise, she was injected with serum R-365 by her ex-fiancé. As a result, she changed into a mutant and known as subject 96.
The lowest and dereliction half-breed.
Regrettably, her ex-laboratory mates are now her enemies. They had done some weird experiment on her for 7 years before they lost-hearted and mislaid. Afterward, they devoted themselves to the other test subjects and successfully created a new special- The shifter. Likewise, they become more obsessed with experiments.
The formerly relaxing experiments became wilder and dangerous. They treated the test subjects like wild animals needed to restrain. Until now, she was imperceptible.
Barbara coward away when the man stirred. She leaned closer to the wall, letting the darkness hide her while calming her palpitated heart. Not that it will shield her from the man, but still, she feels safe. She was mesmerized by his groans. He stretches his muscles before sitting up.
A deep, dangerous growl vibrates through his throat when he observes his surrounding. The subjects nearer their cage quickly shrink away. They are frightened. Barbara watched him under her eyelashes and knelt lower to the floor as her sharp craws came out in defense.
She stills, letting out a low growl when his gaze landed on her. His pale eyes narrowed dangerously. A shiver went through her, but she refused to cower away. She feels proud when she bravely glares at him.
There were words of agony- of fads in those yellow calcite eyes. This was not a rational, logic-driven creature. It was more like a man, an animal, crazed by bloodlust and pain. He thundered, his deep gravelly voice clawing across her skin, awakening a part of her long inactive. “They thought to pacify me with the use of a female?”
Then he said, “I’ll tear you apart”
She let out a growled and bared her teeth. Those insults didn’t hurt her the way he’d intended, but it’d alarm her. He meant to hurt her, and the animal in her refused to let him do as he liked. She didn’t have eyes for intimacy with him. It was only for satisfying her curiosity.
It was beyond belief that they managed to create a magnificent monster. He is a dangerous predator. They are stupidly unaware. But, it’s all right. She only needs to stay away from him. Currently, she could sense his murderous aura. The need to hunt and kill is buried deep inside his mind. Instinct will be damned!
She lifted her chin and narrowed her eyes, “No one touch anyone” then she added, “I don’t wish for your touch. In fact, I’m not the only female here”.
This time he was the one who tilted his head, observing her in the dark. His eyes glowed, dangerously blazing while gazing at her long bare legs. Barbara wore dirty white shorts with a substantial shirt covering her curvy figure. Her craws were razor-sharps, yet shorter than his. Oddly, her hair was a dark golden brown color like maple syrup. It was straight and reached her shoulder-blade.
His fingers twitched for the urge to reach out to her, to stroke her soft flesh, tremendous. Judging by the flex of her biceps and thigh muscles, by the frustration radiating from her, she wouldn’t appreciate that response. She also wouldn’t listen to any command he issued. A reprimand, verbal or physical, would add to her hostility.
The reportedly unbreakable wrist and ankle cuffs attached to the frame of the uploading dock had been broken, rendered useless. Good. A challenging female. Not suitable for a monster like him. But, the requisite to force her into submission was messing his mind. He can see it in her eyes, rose quartz peering into his. She wants to be brave but fails miserably. He could smell her fears.
Barbara instantly calmed down when he averted his eyes to look around. As she said, she’s not the only female. Most coward away unliked the two who tried to draw closer to him but froze when he growled.
He lifted his head and inhaled deeply. The place smelled of blood, urine, vomit, sweats, and arousal hit him like cold water. He almost covered his nose when a sweet scent diverted his attention. He inhaled again with those eyes closed in addiction.
Barbara snorted and shook her head. She was dumbfounded when seeing him enjoying the disgusting smell. She was confined for almost thirteen years and still unaccustomed to the unpleasant foul. Moments passed. He remained motionless, allowing her to observe him, to smell him, to become accustomed to the sound of his breathing and heartbeats.
Her heart pounded so loudly that Barbara suspected his superior senses- that he could hear her. But damn him, she couldn’t stop staring at his lower part. He had shifted his weight from his right foot to his left. Left hand on his left leg while the right one stayed on the dirty floor, giving her a better view of it. Eventually, his confidence gives her the hump.
He could at least point that thing somewhere else. His thighs were sturdy and four times bigger than hers. She could see the scars on his body. There was a long old scar along with the abs to his hip and on his right thigh. His cock was thick and long and had an alluring ridge. She resisted the urge to wiggle her ass, her pussy moistening, her nipples tightening.
She was furious and frustrated. Barbara yanked the thin black blanket from under her and tossed it to him. His thick hand successfully catches it with his eyes closed. His lips twitched, and bringing it to his nose, shamefully sniffed it.
Sweat dripping down her back and neck. Barbara gritted her teeth, hiding her embarrassment with anger and irritation. “Don’t get me wrong! I didn’t give you that to fucking smell it like a dog”
Barbara turns away to keep from attacking him. It will be a stupid, suicide thing to do. She demanded, “Just fucking covers it! No one wants to see your dick”
“Liar” His voice was impossibly deep. No male should have a voice like that, like an endless day filled with sin and danger.
Barbara leaned her head on the wall and closed her eyes. Her ears focus on his heartbeats and the movement made by him. So far, nobody picks a fight. But, she keeps guarding her back in case- Luke, the troublesome tiger-shifter return from his daily check-up. That annoying male keeps getting on her nerves. He was stubbornly trying to claim her, eager to make her submit and become his bitch.
Consequently, she hates him and anticipates him to die someday. Hell! She didn’t know how to protect herself from two dominant males in the same room. Likewise, she hopes for the best thing to happen.
As if God hated her so much, the door was slammed open. Three footsteps walked into the room, eventually, stop in front of her cell room. An annoying high pitch whistle made her fingers twitch. The tiger-shifter walked into the cell and halted five feet from her. He chuckled and hum delightfully. “Female...did you yearn for me?”
“Careful now, don’t let your brains go to your dick,” She warned.
Barbara could feel his eyes staring at her body with lust. His disgusting smell evaporates in the air. She let out a sneer and covered her nose with her shirt.
He let out a bark of a laugh, glossed over her displeasure. “Brain is not important, but this-” He grabs his rod through his pants, “-Needs you”
Barbara remained her closed eyes and completely ignored him. Luke was lean and a few inches taller than her. His head was bald, while his nose resembled a tiger, sharp cat-eyes like and full dry lips. His ego was above his brain. “It needs you badly, sweetheart. Why don’t we-”
“Shut the fuck up!” She said while gritting her teeth. Her voice was soft yet sharp at the same time. Footsteps approach her but halt when a warning growl vibrates through the wall. “Leave her alone, cub”
Luke growled back and spat, “Who the fuck are you?” Then he adds, “I know you-”
He snorted, “You must be the newbie. The stupid male who dares to kill the Experts” He puffed up, “Listen, asshole. The human might scare of you, but you better watch-”
A hissed came from behind her back, followed by a cracking sound on the wall. Barbara gaped as she turned around. Luke was elevated in the air by the naked man. He dangerously squeezed his throat. That death grip makes Luke struggling to breathe. She could smell the fresh blood dripping from the naked man’s hand as Luke crawls his arm. He tries to get away from the top predator. The man was massive and taller than him.
Barbara’s eyes wandered to him as he flexed his arms. It wasn’t right for a man to look that good when he stretched. She tugged her eyes down to his hard, flat stomach, then to the strong hips. Disappointment stung her as her blanket secured around his private part. But, if she narrowed her eyes and hone in on, she could see that sexy ass of his under the thin blanket. Her panties instantly damp at the thought of his touch.
The man still and inhaled deeply, his nostrils flaring. His eyes flashed with golden currents of energy when he looked at her, ignoring the poor man struggling in his grip. The man loosens his hand slightly, allowing Luke to inhale little oxygen. The man keeps still. Instead, he slowly examined her, his gaze resting for endless moments on her hard nipples under her shirt.
Barbara drew nigh to the corner and crossed her hands to hide her embarrassment. She glared at him and snarled. “Stop looking at me, or I’ll dig out your eyeballs!”
His eyes darken, and an emotion flesh through his eyes for a blink before he impassively tilted his head to the man. Luke chuckles before coughing. He tried to look at her, but the man’s hand had no mercy. It squeezes his throat harder when Luke speaks. “Y-You dirty, girl. You like it r-rough...don’t you? I-I’ll f-fuck-”
A sickening sound of broken bones made her stomach somersault. Barbara watched Luke’s body drop to the floor like a soulless puppet. Fear and lust washed over her. She never witnessed anyone being killed before, at least not in the room or inside her cell.
In truth, the subjects always fight on each other frequently, but none tend to kill their opponent. But this one was an exception. Not just being a scary monster, but he is also a murderer. He killed one of the subjects on his first day here. She gulped nervously and stayed still as he walked toward her. “Y-You kill him...”
She said in a failed effort to fully distract herself from what had just happened, unable to keep her eyes from darting to the motionless body. The man stopped in front of her with a light chuckle. “He was a boisterous cub. I’d prefer a silent place”.
The room had been deadly quiet for the first time. The test subjects fear making a noise. They are afraid to be the next victim of the monster. She tried not to flinch when he knelt and tilted his head to observe her. All the bravery died inside her. She predicted him to be the dangerous predator in the room. She might be the next person to die.
Along nerve-racking pause makes her take the chance to peek up at him. His eyes beamed with amusement as he stared down at her. In a slow action, he lifted his hand, dandled her locks. He curled it around his fingers, giving it a gentle pull to bring her face closer to his.
Her craws once again elongated, ready to make a suicide move. She gritted her teeth, holding herself from trembling crazily. Those cold breaths caressed her cheek and her earlobe. He whispers, “Now, I remember you-” He paused, “-Doctor Barbara Creiddylad”.
Barbara froze in fear. She felt as if someone had thrown cold water on her body. His voice reached deep inside her, sensing the tenseness in the air. The man seems to enjoy her unstable emotion. He let out a dark chuckle and inhaled deeply.
His lips barely touch her cheek when he speaks, “I’m curious. Why don’t you satisfy my curiosity, little doc?” He hummed, “I was wondering why- a scientist, one of them, is inside this experiment cell?”
His warmth breathes weakened her, “Looking as hopeless as ever”
Barbara was trembling and breathless. She hurriedly leaned away from him and slapped his hand from her hair, “I-I don’t know what you’re talking about”.
He hummed lowly before quietly peering at her discomfort body. Air left her lungs when his hand suddenly gripped her throat. He pulled her closer to his face, forcing her eyes to meet his. He narrowed his eyes, speaking precariously. “Liar...Liar...Your panties on fire”
She blinked her long eyelashes, her gaze softened and unfocused. She pressed her thighs when those words sank dipper in her mind. Likewise, she was scared but shockingly arose at the same time. Her tantalizing musky scent shamelessly becomes stronger. His lips twitched, clearly catching her scent. “What are you doing here, doctor?”
She tilted her chin upward, stubbornness in the line of her jaw. She was ready to curse when he spoke, “Beware, little doctor. I’m not in my greatest mood today. Choose your words carefully before I do...something with that tongue of yours”
Barbara was shaking like a leaf.
He raised an eyebrow and somewhat squeezed her throat. Afraid to be the next corpse, she finally answers. Her whisper caressed his ear, “I-I’m no longer one of them”
