Bloodlust by Chloe Gorman

Like a leech, he drained me.

Slowly at first, until he cut a wound so deep the life cascaded from me like a tsunami.

Bleeding. Dying.

A husk was all that was left.

An empty casket.

A body devoid of a soul.

You have made me a vampire.

Reanimated the dead.

Feverishly I hunt for you.

Desperate for your taste on my tongue.

Kiss me in the dark before the morning sun burns my skin.
