"Tell me different, payton."

His eyes took on that glint that had me back tracking, heart hammering in my chest as I watched him.

Covered in blood and looking lethal as hell, he still managed to make my cock hard and look smoking hot.

It terrified me.

Now was not the time to be having a heart to heart. There was a mad man on the loose, demons from my past were catching up to me and the vampire in front of me had issues of his own yet I couldn't deny it any longer.

I had fallen for him hard yet I had no intention of acting on it anytime soon. He'd eat me alive.

"You're mean and vicious and-"

"You love danger." He purred, taking a step towards me. "You can't deny the attraction, I can almost taste your desire."

I watched the vampire slowly grin and it felt like I was staring at the devil himself... The devil which was oh so hot.

"No," I squeaked. "You can't possibly do that."

He stalked towards me like a predator hunting it's prey and stood just out of reach before ripping his shirt open, the buttons flying off and scattering to the wooden floor. His eyes were ablaze yet I was unable to look away, captured under his dominance.

"Tell me you don't want this and then get the fuck out of my house."

His tone had heat searing through my body and blood rushing to my groin. Oh no, I thought desperately, please don't notice. Please don't notice.

He took a step forward and I inhaled his delicious scent. "Tell. Me."

I wanted to. I wanted to defy him and bruise his ego yet the words died on my tongue as soon as my gaze trailed down to his smooth chest. Fuck, I wanted him and damn did I want to drag my tongue down those abs...

Marius watched with a glint in his eye and his jaw set. After a few moments he took another step and closed the space between us. I could feel the hard bulge in his pants as he lent in close and I had to fight the urge to grind against him.

"You want me as much as I want you." He rested his arms on each side of my head, trapping me. "Do I make you horny?"

I felt my cheeks redden.

"Do you touch yourself thinking about me?"

I squirmed against the wall, gaze dropping to the floor as I felt embarrassment wash over me. I couldn't bring myself to meet his smoldering gaze. "Stop," I mumbled, "Stop talking."

"Why? Am I making you hard?"

Before I could stop him, he reached down and grabbed me, making my back arch and a gasp to leave my throat. I instantly let out a growl and went to push him away yet his hand began to squeeze and pain shot through me.

Marius watched me with those stormy eyes and grinned, fangs on show.

"My, my, I never thought you were this big," My lips were parted yet I had no words to say. "Well done little vamp, you actually surprised me."

"Let me go." I managed to hiss out between clenched teeth.

He flexed his fingers and squeezed tighter before doing so, seeming reluctant. He then straightened and regarded me with interest, expression dark. I let out a sigh of relief now I wasn't trapped under his iron grip and turned to give him a glare.

"I hate you," I growled, "I hate how you are."

"So you should."

He pressed himself against me, fangs out and eyes gleaming. "I'm dangerous Payton," His voice was hushed, taking on a husky tone that made me shiver with desire. "I'm dangerous and you're... you."

I licked my lips, watching with wide eyes.

"I shouldn't want you, I shouldn't want to want you but I do."

His hot breath fanned against my cheek and my pulse spiked, I didn't speak, afraid to break the spell that had fallen over us. It had taken so long to get here, so much blood and tears and sweat had been put into this... Friendship and I wasn't about to throw it all away by saying something dumb.

The vampire had me down to a T and though a small part of me was annoyed at that, a bigger part felt nothing but relief to finally have him knowing how I felt; knowing how he effected me, even if it was just a certain way he looked at me.

"Our love is going to hurt," His head began to lower towards mine, "Are you ready for this?"

I nodded, forcing myself to swallow. "Y-Yes."

"I thought that's what you'd say..."

He trailed off and brought his lips to mine then, crushing me beneath his weight as he pinned me against the wall and kissed me hard. It was full of passion and anger and lust.

It was better than I had ever imagined and as I groaned into his mouth and reached for his shirt, his hand went up to grab my wrists, capturing them in one of his large hands and keeping me immobile."Rule number one little vamp," He pressed himself against me and I nearly melted into puddle at his feet. "I'm in charge."

Completely under his spell, I could do nothing but breath him in and meet his gaze with a look of my own. "Kiss me again."

He cocked an eyebrow, lips brushing ever so slightly against mine, almost teasingly.

"Please." I whispered, grinding against him and earning a growl that rocked me to my very core. I could have died happy now that he'd kissed me once but I wanted more.

I yearned to feel his flesh against mine, to caress his body with my hands and tongue. I wanted to taste him, to have him in my mouth and hear him make that noise of pleasure as he came. The urge to mark him as mine was nearly overwhelming.

"I'm no good for you."

His voice brought me from my dwindling thoughts and I tugged my hands free from his grip to then wrap them around his shoulders, keeping him close.

"I dont care. Im fed up of behaving..."

The vampire almost purred as my fingers merged in his hair, pulling gently as his hand wandered down to cup me again, this time softer and it had my body on fire.

"Show me how good it is to be bad," I found myself whispereing. "Show me what I've been missing."

He slowly grinned and it was in that moment that I needed him like I needed air to breathe. "Please Marius."

Without another word, he then silenced my mouth with his and I fell deeper into the rabbit hole, falling just a little harder in love.
