TASTE OF FIRE by VIRGIE

   The beat of his heart matched the pounding of the drums as the sensual strains of music throbbed across the crowd.

   The M. C. stepped onto the stage.

   “Ladies!   Please give a waarrrmmmm welcome toooo . . . Count Drake . . . ula!”

   Applause swelled as he moved into the spotlight and the red silk lining of his cape flashed, a perfect match to the scarlet ribbon holding his golden locks in place.

   Undulating to the music, his emerald eyes caught hers for an instant and he licked his lips.  He unhooked the cape, then whipped it above his head and through his legs, watched her gasp as he caressed the silver buttons on his black silk shirt one by one, revealing muscular alabaster arms and torso.

   Opening his full lips, he slid his tongue across his fangs, hooked his fingers in the waistband of the black silk trousers edged by silver snaps, ripped them from his legs and bent over.

   Drake grinned when the crowd gasped at the sight of his scarlet g-string.  He stood, pulled the silk from his hair, releasing his thick, blond mane onto his broad shoulders  Running his fingers through the curls, he flung the ribbon, watched her gulp and her nipples grow hard against her ivory lace blouse as it floated gently onto her lap.

   He summoned all the women except her, and they formed a line to the stage.  One by one they paused in front of him, posing for pitcures as they stuffed bills into the waist and sides of the strip of red hugging his hips.  He hid a smile each time she jerked as a woman brushed against him, smiled when he thought how they would finally be together.

   Finally the evening was at an end.  Sprinkled with stars thrown hither and thither, the night sky beckoned and he obeyed.

   Drake watched her move slowly across the parking lot, take a deep breath and expel it from her red, swollen lips.  Anticipation washed over him an instant before her sapphire eyes me his as he leaned casually against the limousine.

   When she was near, he yanked her into his arms and the mouth he ached for grazed his.  Lust overwhelmed him.  When her feverish body touched his, he knew he wouldn’t stop.  He pulled her closer, cupped her hips and lifted her against his groin.  She moaned and wrapped her legs around him, and he felt the skirt crawl up her thighs.  Turning her around, he pressed her back against the car door.  She ground against him and he gasped, grew harder.

   He pulled his mouth away, and she cried out, crossed her legs behind him and wrpped her arms around his neck.

   “Inside,” he whispered, then pulled open the door.  Drake shoved her into the car, whispered to the driver, then pressed a button closing the tinted window, locking out the world.

   Kneeling in front of her, he worshipped her skin, his mouth and tongue moving slowly upward causing her to strain against him, seeking relief from the heat within.  The fire raging through her veins warmed his body.

   His mouth pressed against her neck, fangs extended.

   “No!  It will kill you!”  She screamed and tried to shove him away.

   Drake grabbed her throat, sank his teeth into her jugular, gulped greedily.

   The sweet, hot taste of blood splashing over his tongue caused him to explode and he sucked harder.

   The soucouyant’s blood spilled flames down his throat and his eyes glowed.  Tears of fire mangled his face.
