Yasuko couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Never in his life had he witnessed anything like this. There were people dressed in black, some with chains hanging from them, some with piercings all over their faces.
Woman and men wore black lipstick and some of the people had their hair standing straight up in spikes. He was in awe. Yasuko walked up to one man with a glowing piece of plastic around his neck.
How did he get it to glow? Yasuko’s attention was quickly pulled away as another man walked by with a dog collar around his neck. His fingers lifted, feeling how bare his own neck was. He wanted one of those glowing plastic pieces.
Yasuko followed behind a man who had a dog collar and a chain hanging from it. Was he expecting someone to walk him? His vision caught the flashing red and white lines of light cutting across the interior. They bounced from wall to wall, splashing everyone in its path.
The music was heavy, making Yasuko want to slowly sway his hips. Since being here in America, he’d only seen the inside of the building he was whored out in, and then the inside of Zeus’s home after that. He visited the town, but they didn’t have anything like this.
Not even back home in Japan had he witnessed something like this. It was a whole new world to Yasuko, one he intended to thoroughly explore. A man grabbed his wrist, pulling him into the dance area.
Yasuko looked around, watching how everyone danced and then began to mirror them. His body felt alive for the very first time. He felt like a prisoner who had just been freed. Yasuko’s hands skimmed his body, imitating the man in front of him.
“You dance lovely, pretty little one,” the man said as he circled around Yasuko. “I may just keep you. You’re too pretty to have just one drink.”
Yasuko had no clue what he was talking about. All he knew was that he felt like his body was on fire. His hands came up as they ran through his hair, his lips parting.
“Damn, baby.” The man’s eyes slowly scanned Yasuko’s body from head to toe, and then back up again. That was when he noticed the glowing red eyes.
“You’re a vampire,” he stated.
“Intelligent to boot.” The man chuckled. “Why don’t you come with me? I can take really good care of you.”
“Because,” a deep voice sounded behind him, “he’s with me.”
“Prince.” The man backed away as his eyes lowered. “Forgive me. I did not know.”
Yasuko looked up at Christian. The man was so damn handsome. “I want to dance.” He jumped slightly when the entire room turned to look at him. It was an eerie thing to witness. Christian stood there motionless, looking over the crowd. All at once, everyone’s head bowed and then looked away from him.
“Then dance, my doe. No one is going to bother you again,” Christian whispered into Yasuko’s ear. “I’ll be over at the bar with Minsheng, trying to make him smile.” He pointed behind him as Yasuko’s gaze followed.
Minsheng was sitting on a stool glaring at them. He was surprised the man wasn’t over here pulling him away.
“He won’t.” Christian smiled at him. The vampire took one step to his side, blocking Minsheng from his view. Christian straightened, using his index finger to lift Yasuko’s chin. His eyes glanced up at the handsome man standing before him. “You are very beautiful, Yasuko.”
He could feel his cheeks heating under Christian’s compliment. Yasuko desperately wanted Christian to lean down again and kiss him, but not on the forehead this time. “Thank you.” Just one kiss.
“Soon.” Christian smiled down at him. “Very soon, little doe.” When Christian’s thumb ran over his bottom lip, Yasuko began to pant. Small intakes of breath were all he could manage. His tongue darted out to taste the salty tip of the Christian thumb.
The vampire’s nostrils flared as his gaze turned heated. “You tempt me, little minx. Dance for now. Have fun.”
Yasuko watched Christian’s back as he walked through the crowd, his flowing black hair touching his shoulders. He felt paralyzed for a moment. His cock was hard as steel, and his body itched to be touched.
Dance, little doe. Dance for me.
Yasuko blinked and then looked around. He had heard Christian, but he was nowhere in sight.
I can still see you, Yasuko.
Yasuko giggled. Whatever it was that made him hear the handsome man, he liked it. His body once again took up the dance he had previously abandoned. His hips swayed to the music, but this time, no one approached him.
He became lost as his body followed its own beat. His mind opened up as his hands rose above his head. His eyes closed as Yasuko danced.
He was alive.
Alive for the very first time.
