Dark Indiscretions #0.5
"A friendship forged out of necessity
A bond broken and turned into hatred
One once looked at as a brother
The other loved to much and too soon"
James Johnston and Kain O'Grady once had a bond like no other ever seen before. Not only were they brothers of the heart, they were also lovers.
Centuries they spent at each other's side. Through good times and through bad, but never did their relationship suffer until one pregnancy and one prophecy changes their lives forever.
Betrayal is seen at every corner and madness close behind.
~~~~REVIEW BY TERRI~~~
Fantastic! This was just what I was hoping for. I wanted to know more about the background of these characters and Ms Johnson didn't disappoint. I learned about the main characters, the other groups and why all of the families act like they do.
Taken back to when Kain and James were just 5 years old, they quickly became friends...then more. I love how they interact with each other, their parents and grandparents. This is their coming of age story and it is beautifully written.
Keep writing Ms Johnson. You have a fan for life!!

James didn't know what to say to comfort Kain so he just said nothing. He let his body talk for him. He turned his body around so he was facing Kain and looked into his honey-colored eyes and felt something he couldn't explain. His eyes traveled down Kain's face and settled on his lips. He remembered that kiss just before he died. He wanted to feel Kain's lips on his again. He moved his hands to run up Kain's chest.
"What are you doing?" came Kain's breathy inquire.
"Shh," was all James said in reply.
He brought his lips to Kain's again and this time pressed more firmly. He hadn't a clue what he was doing but whatever it was he needed more. He felt not only himself but Kain's hardness. He moved himself to straddle Kain's thighs and let out a groan when their penises came in contact with each other. He wrapped his arms around Kain's neck and felt Kain's arms around his waist, pulling him closer. Locking them together more firmly. He started to rock his hips slowly and heard Kain's breath catch in his throat, followed by a small growl.
Their kisses were becoming sloppier and more hurried. James started to rock his hips a little faster. He didn't know what either of them needed but he just knew he needed to go faster. Kain's lips left his to suck on his neck. He could feel the scrap of his fangs and it only served to make him moan louder. Water was sloshing all about as their thrusts grew quicker and their breathing harsher. He could fill tingling all over his body and his claws begin to curl out from his fingers. Whatev
er they were doing felt wonderful and he never wanted it to stop. Kain kept nibbling and sucking on his neck and had even removed one of his arms to fist his hand in James's hair. Suddenly Kain pulled James's head back and struck. His fangs embedded deeply into his neck and before James knew what was happening a shout was escaping his throat as thick ropes of fluid left his body through his penis. Kain experienced the same sensation.
Kain took his fangs out of James's neck and bared his own flesh. Seconds later he felt pleasure unlike anything else when James pulled blood from his neck. Whatever they had just done would have to be repeated as many times as they could. Next time he would make sure to stretch it out, though. He vaguely remembered James licking on his neck before sleep took him from not only the shock of James's second death but the sensations his body had just experienced. He was fairly certain that James had fallen asleep as well. The only thought he had was that it was going to be freezing in the bath when they awoke.

James looked up from the dirt piles he was playing with at the sound of someone shuffling up the valley. The midday sun was hot, blinding him with its light. Through the sunbeams, a small boy ambled to where James knelt in the dirt. He had never seen this boy before and James was wary. Mystics were the top of the food chain, and his father would kill him if he let someone get the better of him. It didn’t matter that he was only six or that the boy appeared smaller than him. It wouldn’t do to be taken by surprise by this stranger. He stood, baring his tiny fangs.
“Who are you? Why have you come here?” James growled, voice tinny but fierce. Even at six, he was a trained killer.
“My name is Kain. Our parents were talking down towards camp. They said you were here playing. I asked if I could come join you, so here I am.” Kain’s tiny hands curled to his side and his head cocked.
“Are you new here?” James asked, fangs still visible. He wasn’t ready to retract them just yet.
“Yes, we walked about two weeks time to get to this part of the hillside,” Kain said. “Would it be alright if I played with you?”
James eyed the strange boy suspiciously.
“Are you a Mystic, too?”
Kain smiled, his top lip pulling back to reveal his own set of small, pearly fangs.
“You don’t have a sister?” James asked.
“No. It’s just me.”
“Me too! Want to be bestest friends?” James withdrew his fangs at this unprecedented prospect.
“Yes!” Kain shouted while bouncing up and down, hands waving wildly.
“Good. We will be friends forever and ever.” James said with confidence.
To secure their blood bond forever, the two boys each nicked the tips of their forefingers with their fangs until blood bubbled at the slight wounds. When their bloody fingertips touched, an instant, unbreakable bond was sealed. They would be best friends forever, even as long as
they both still lived and even passing into death. A bond between two Mystics could very well last forever. If nothing came between them, then James and Kain could be blood bound for an eternity.
