He clutched her, his slender arms wound around her – blue silk rippled through the black satin as the crescent brushed against the star.
The air around them had shifted from something monastic into something intricate – it was almost a palpable change. How ironical that now when they held one another, when their souls were finally together, it was time for them to separate.

She breathed a sigh of trepidation, as he drew near to her – beyond which, it seemed, lingered a trace of aversion.

As the fangs entered her flesh, she cried feebly in pain.
