Love Bites Blog Hop: A Wish

Lilith’s head rested against Matt’s shoulder. He twirled a strand of her hair around his finger. He felt the gentle rise and fall of her body. Heard the sigh escape her lips when he brushed a kiss against her unblemished forehead. The scent of her perfume made his head swim and he pulled her closer.

Was this love? Matt had thought himself incapable of love. Emma, his ex, had called him heartless. Maybe she’d been right. Love had never been a priority, until now.

Matt lowered his lips to Lilith’s and kissed her eager mouth, pouring into their kiss his unspoken love.

“It’s about time,” she said.

Pain sliced into Matt, a sharp, unforgiving spasm starting in his chest and radiating throughout his body.

He looked down in shock at the knife sticking out of his chest. Their eyes collided and he gasped in horror.

Lilith’s beautiful face now marred with deep scars. Her eyes blood red, her teeth jagged. He tried to shout yet his lips sealed shut. His body betrayed him, held in place by an unknown force.

She cackled, an unearthly screech.

Her skilled hands wielded the knife as she craved into him, delighting as his eyes filled with terror and agony. She reached into his body, grasped his heart, and tugged, ripping it from his chest.

Matt watched his heart beat in her hand. Blood dripped from her fingertips.

Her face hovered close to his. Her putrid breath bathed his face.

“Emma says hello.”

  4. What a ruthless story! Am I wrong to feel sorry for the boy?? Bless him, just allows himself to fall in love, and someone rips his heart out - literally! But very well written!

  6. I'm reminded of the saying of writers, "I'll have to put you in my next story. As the victim..." Very vengeful.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it.

      Honestly, I never hated Matt and it killed me to rip his heart out, but mayhaps knowing a wee bit of the back story helps. And to each his own, I say! I leave my wee story up to the interpretation of the readers. =)

  12. Poor, poor matt. I really do feel for him; actually falling in love for the first time only to be so cruelly ripped from him- literally. Very descriptive and very harsh . . . . I don't like Emma. . . .I feel she has taken her scorn too far. Fab entry. x

      All I can say is now poor Emma is taking a beating and I sorta kinda getting a kick out of it.

      It's funny, because no one has questioned Lilith's motives yet, however, everyone has questioned Matt & Emma's. Interesting!

  13. Poor Matt. I wonder what he did to Emma to make her so angry. And I wonder what she now owes Lilith for exacting her revenge. ;)

    Excellent!
