An erotic short with vampire, ménage, bdsm, thriller, and Halloween themes.
Nikki has the Sickness; the desire to be preyed upon and fall under the spell of a vampire. At nights, she tosses feverishly in her bed. And then she runs out of milk at 2 a.m. What happens next is as unexpected as it is certain. And along the way, she saves a man’s life.
Split lip, bruised ribs, livid purple mark on his thigh, a couple of tiny puncture wounds on his left shoulder, at the base of his neck. He’ll live. Nikki’s stripped off his T-shirt and jeans, leaving him in white designer boxers, well contoured and fitted. She’s washed his wounds, allowed him to rest up on her sofa. It’s still dark outside but an urban blackbird in a nearby tree has started to claim territory and attract a mate. They drink mugs of tea. His name is Jared.
Rewind: puncture wounds on his left shoulder.
‘I can’t help thinking,’ Nikki says, ‘that the hunters didn’t make those marks on your neck. They saw them and decided you have the Sickness.’
‘They didn’t make them. And I have.’
His eyes are on her, sweeping down her body. With a start Nikki realises she’s still wearing the overcoat, unbuttoned, an inch-wide strip of flesh from neck to navel.
‘I couldn’t sleep … I just slipped the coat on to go to the shop.’
He shrugs, then winces as his ribs move under the skin. ‘You saved me. It’s your flat. You don’t have to explain anything.’
‘So you must have …?’
‘A vampire? Yes. Or more precisely, she has me. And others. When she needs to feed.’
He senses the half-purr, half-growl in Nikki’s throat. She senses the tightening of muscles in her thighs and belly.
‘You too?’ he asks.
When she doesn’t reply, Jared reaches forward. Gently moves the coat aside from her shoulder.
‘I understand.’ His voice is soft, sympathetic. ‘You have the Sickness, and no cure.’
The tremors in Nikki’s body tell him it’s true. She leans forwards. Jared hisses in pain as he takes her weight, pulls her half onto the sofa to put his arms around her.
The rest is a blur. His lips on hers, her hungry response, the way he moans into her mouth because of the cut on his lip. Her coat spread wide, nipples brushing against his bare chest, sensations like electrical discharges. The heady smell of his body, somewhere between rich burgundy wine and antique leather. His cock pressing hard against Nikki’s pubis, painfully so. She arches her hips, allowing the head of his cock to rest against the dampness of her pussy lips.
He enters her without asking, without needing to. He knows what images are playing out behind Nikki’s closed eyes. He’s been there himself.
He is gentle until the moisture in her, the sobs, the way her legs and arms splay wide tell him she’s begging to be taken fiercely. Then it stops being a tender fuck. He pounds her hard, wild, as if he owns her.
Nikki’s mouth is a teeth-baring grimace. She keens breathlessly, accepting the full length of his cock, the perspiration-soaked smack and thump of his body against hers. She takes it like it’s a well-deserved punishment. She takes it like she needs and wants more.
When he uses two fingernails, scratching at her neck, the images in Nikki’s head collide and then explode. Her body convulses, boot heels chewing at the carpet, fingers curling into fists that beat uselessly against the cushions on the sofa. She holds her breath until she’s almost blacked out, finally releasing it as a wolf-bitch howl.
She has no idea now much time has passed before she can control her muscles enough even to open her eyes.
Jared is there, inches from her face, looking concerned.
‘I thought you were having a seizure!’
Nikki makes a conscious effort to raise her body. When she moves, she can feel he’s still inside her. Her fingers move instinctively to her neck, to the scratch marks. For a moment, the knowledge that Jared is a thrall mingles with her fantasy of him as a vampire. She’s disappointed there’s no bite mark on her.
‘Is that what it’s like … with a vampire, I mean?’
Jared smiles gently. ‘No, of course not. It’s much better.’

If the power of the vampire and the ultimate reward of sex is what drives you then look no further than this book. It introduces us to Nikki, a girl that actively seeks out the bite of a vampire but gets a lot more than she bargained for. With a strong lead character and dark and moody vamps you couldn't ask for any better.

The main character is this short story is called Nikki. She has the Sickness, which is the desire to be bitten by a vampire and be ensnared in its thrall. The wanting is starting to take over Nikki's life, she thinks constantly about fangs sinking into her neck and the sublime feelings it would arouse in her.
Her erratic behaviour causes her to run out of milk and, awake in the middle of the night and desperate for a drink, she goes to the store. What she sees on her way home changes her life forever...
For a short story, this sure packs a punch! From the very beginning this tale is seductive and engaging, and it just gets better. When Nikki meets Jared things become incredibly erotic. As their relationship develops, another facet of his life opens to Nikki, and that's when things become really interesting.
Overall, this is an awesome read. If you love vampire erotica, this is a different take and it's brilliant. Recommended.

This was the first short story by Fulani that I have read. Even though it was short, it was a hot, sexy read that I really enjoyed. I liked the whole concept of this world with vampires, hunters, and the sickness that plagues some people. I bought a few other stories by this author and I look forward to reading them. This story is a recommended read by me.
