He’s bought a tragically beautiful man home, but what they both get out of the interaction is far more than they had bargained for. It might be time to bend to beautiful.
When I started reading this story, I thought that it was just another tale of a vampire seducing someone and taking them home. It felt a little different because it was about two men, but it still kind of felt same, same. Until about halfway through.
Halfway through the tale, my perception started to change. I wondered if the narrator’s voice was really the predator, instead of the prey. And just who was hunting who. Which was kind of nice. It provided a little bit of something new to a pretty typical story.
Reading this short story was quite fun, it was just easy and simple. Slightly unexpected, but nothing that will haunt me in the future. Just simple, comfortable and kind of fun.
