Writeober – Day 05: Taste

The instant it touched my lips and tongue I’d never felt anything like it before. I’ve craved things before today. Things people usually take for granted like food and drink. I’ve wanted things, like wishing I could be somewhere else. All different longings, but nothing like this.

I probably should be disgusted. Revolted. My eyes pop open for a moment and though my mouth stays where it is, my eyes roam. I see red. Both literally and physically.

It doesn’t matter if I’m making a mess. I can’t stop myself. Not until Alterion pulls at my hair, forcing me to break away.

Keeping a firm grasp around my hair, parts of which now drip crimson, he inches closer to me. His serrated teeth, what mine look like now, are made visible when he unleashed the sinister smile I’ve grown accustomed to.

“How does it taste?” His words are almost a whisper.

I stare down at the motionless body, still feeling no hint of concern or sorrow. All my emotions are pushed aside, leaving nothing but the craving. I can only utter one word.
