My breathing increased as I could feel my body tremble from the monster in front of me. He smirked and took pleasure in my fear as he backed me into the wall. He grabbed my arm with strong force and squeezed, releasing my blood from the cut on my hand. He brought my hand closer to his nose as he allowed the scent to enter his nostrils. Almost immediately, he threw me across the room as I slammed through the wall into the empty dark hallway.
More blood released from my hand as I felt a thick liquid stream down the side of my head and back. His footsteps became audible as he approached.
"So tell me," He says, eyes like a snake gazing upon a broken-winged bird,
"How can something that smells so good, be a poison"?
I hesitantly looked up at him, avoiding his menacing fangs and hungry eyes.
"Are you going to kill me"?
He chuckled. "Not sure. Haven't quite figured out when and how yet".
