Desmond and Leanne

Desmond and Leanne

“FUCK YOU!” she spat at Desmond, “YOU SAID YOU WOULDN’T HARM ME!”
“That was if you cooperated,” Desmond replied dryly, “now you have other uses.”

Desmond and Leanne

“GET THE FUCK OFF ME YOU SHIT” Content Not Found: Leanne screamed as the thug struggled to carry her down the basement steps. Desmond glided past them and turned on the light which failed to illuminate the tiny room. A ten metre squared space surrounded by bare drywall – most of it mouldy, water damaged or both. The most recent work performed on the basement was the installation of two vertical steel beams.
“FUCK YOU!” she spat at Desmond, “YOU SAID YOU WOULDN’T HARM ME!”
“That was if you cooperated,” Desmond replied dryly, “now you have other uses.”
Desmond gestured to the thug and Leanne was unceremoniously dropped on the floor. She instantly sprang up and aimed a punch for Desmond’s head but he casually pushed her in the face and she flew back to the ground. Leanne scrambled to get back up but Desmond straddled her, held her down and started licking her face. A light buzz spread across her body but she ignored it and head-butted Desmond in the nose. He started and sat up.
“Absolutely no reaction?” he mused, “you’re more fucked up than I thought.”
He grabbed her by the neck, stood up, easily lifted her off the ground and pressed her against one of the steel beams. Leanne instantly felt waves of fear, pain and terror dripping off the steel – everyone who had ever been fastened to this beam had met some kind of grisly end… she could feel that. She struggled more.
“I wonder what that Jim sees you?” continued Desmond, ignoring her continual kicks to the groin, “perhaps it’s what he saw in you. Perhaps he thinks he can fix you, little miss hexenwolf?”
The thug grabbed Leanne’s arms and handcuffed them behind her back and around the beam. The two vampires stepped back and observed as Leanne struggled for a while and then gave in.
Leanne’s gaze fell upon the Asian woman handcuffed to the other steel beam. She was sweating, crying and breathing as if he was in distress. What was left of her eye shadow formed long dark lines down her face.
“Oh, right!” Desmond exclaimed, “I’ve forgotten to introduce you to your new roommate!”
He walked over to the other woman, grabbed her hair and angled her face into the dim light.
“Meet Tanya,” Desmond said with a smile, “she’s very tired and hungry. Very hungry.”
He released Tanya’s hair and then stepped back.
“In fact, she’s so hungry, that I’m not sure those handcuffs will be able to hold her for long.”
Desmond turned on his heel and made his way to the steps.
Leanne clenched her jaw and glared defiantly at Desmond.
“He’ll come looking for me,” she said, “and he’ll come straight to you.”
A wry grin spread across Desmond’s face as he walked up the stairs and replied;
“I’m counting on that.”
