    Fragments from "Gloaming"


    Ella leaned her head on her desk, utterly miserable.

    Th teacher was droning on and on, as Ella's mousy, goofy-looking classmates stared forward mindlessly. How could they come to school dressed like that? Girls should NOT wear guy's t-shirts, and flip-flops should have heels AT LEAST two inshes thick. No-one dressed like that back in San Antonio. Ella felt so out of place.

    She turned and stared dejectedly out the window. Rain was falling stadily from the gray sky, as it had been since she moved here to Oregon. She sighed.

    There was somone out there, on the practice field, standing in the rain. He was tall and pale, and the rain had plastered his dark shirt to his muscular chest. He was staring right at her. She froze, transfixed, a butterfly caught on the twin needles of his gaze.

    "But why? Why can't we be together, William?"

    They sat together under a spreading oak tree. Beyond their pool of shade, their shared, private love-shadow, the clouds had broken for a moment, bathing the world in light. William ran his long, graceful fingers up and down Ella's spine. She shivered with desire and snuggled closer to him.

    "You don't understand, Ella... I'm a monster. I feed on people. It's too dangerous..."

    "Have you... hurt anyone I know?" Ella looked up into his deep black eyes, set in his pale, perfect face.

    "No! No, while we're on the surface, we have to follow strict feeding discipline. We only kill our own livestock, the hassle of a murder cover-up could jepardize the entire endeavor."

    Ella smiled and kissed him on the cheek. "I knew it! You only eat animals! Oh, you're perfect, William!"

    William made a gurgling sound. "Well, working from my family's definition of 'animal,' yes, but the problem is you! I... I desire you, Ella. Your thoughts, they're like cotton candy, so sweet and airy. You erode my self-control. If I slipped..."

    Ella blushed and squirmed with happiness. "It's... it's ok, William. I... desire you too!"

    "NO!" William pulled away from her and stood, breathing heavily. "Foolish human girl, you don't know what you're saying! I cannot... I cannot endanger..." Face twisted in a mask of frustration, he strode away from her into the sunlight."

    "William! William, you're..."

    William turned, and spread his arms wide. "Yes! In direct sunlight, the illusion begins to fail, and the truth seeps through! The veils drop away from your eyes! This is why we work to blot out the accursed day-star! Do you see now, Ella? Do you see what I am?"

    Ella gasped, her eyes wide, her hands up to her mouth. "You're... pink! And shiney! Soooo pretty..."

    "I'm lavender, and that's mucus, you stupid, stupid bitch!"

    The light of the torches shone from the oily surface of the pool, which rippled as things moved deep within it. The light shone on William's bare, hairless chest, gleaming on each perfect muscle. Ella was shivering with the chill, dressed only in a thin white robe. Her breath came quick in her throat as she stepped forward to put a hand on his pale, flawless skin. She could feel his heartbeat, an odd triple-pulse rythem.

    "William, my love..."

    William gazed down into her eyes, that piercing, soulful stare that had first captured her heart, all those days ago. "Ella... are you certain about this?"

    Ella pressed her face to his cool, perfect body. "Yes! Yes, William, my love, I've never been so certain about anything in my life! I want to be with you forever, William! I want to be like you, I want to have your child!"

    William sighed. Ella always thought he had the most perfectly romantic sighs of anyone ever. "Well, those last two sort of overlap. And there's no chance of getting you to just forget about all of this and leave me alone?"

    Ella smiled at him. He looked impassive, but she knew that inside he was a boiling cauldron of love and desire, just like her. "Even now, you're trying to protect me! Oh, William, nothing will ever tear us apart! We'll be together forever!" She passionately kissed his chest, her mind burning with the fishy taste of his sweat.

    "Very well, then, foolish human girl. Turn around."

    She turned, and gasped as he ripped the robe off her. His pale, strong arms pulled her close and turned her toward the dark pool. She moaned as one hand cupped her breast and the other crept downward. She could feel his cool breath on the back of her scalp, and something twining in her hair. He pushed forward, and they fell together, the glistening water rushing up to meet them.

    Yeah, I'm not gonna write the graphic tentacle-sex and brain-eatan. Unless there's a lady on the board who's into that sort of thing.

    Whatta ya think, /tg/? Have we got a global young-adult bestseller on our hands?

    Please don't. The world needs less "young-adult bestsellers."
