can the killer in me tame the fire in you?
I am sick of the chase but I'm hungry for blood
She has no such qualms about the coolness of the air when it sweeps in to kiss her damp skin. It breathes life into her small, indigo body, draws a finger across the muscles beneath her skin so they tighten and protest and curl her tighter into her own warmth.
There is supposed to be other warmth, she is sure of this. A boy as beautiful as she is, a body that had been tangled with hers since the beginning of time. She fusses softly beneath her mother's soft tongue, blinks open a pair of eyes so pale they are nearly crystalline in their blueness.
The world is fuzzy at first, soft and hazy and filled with so many things she nearly topples sideways as she cranes her neck to see it all. Silhouettes of trees and bushes and leaves that shake and rattle, the blue face of mom who reaches over to catch her before she can tumble too far. Oh and stars! Bright and twinkling pinpricks of light that blink down and watch her, paint her skin in silver, coax the stars on her legs and face to glow brighter.
And the boy.
She knows him instantly, feels the swell of something warm and bright in her chest as she traces his face, memorizes the lines of white where they crash against such beautiful, wild blue. She notices his lips too, the way they pull back from his teeth in such a silly smile at her and she blinks back so soft and sweet, pulling her own delicate lips into a smile to match - though hers is far sweeter. Then she bleats at him softly, reaches her little blue and white nose towards him. I missed you, she tells him in every way she can, every way but with the words she does not yet know.
