(A Cerys du Lys zombie erotic romance novelette)
Sadie is a regular girl. Or she was.
Affected by an unknown virus, cold and confused, living in a world she doesn't understand, she wanders "the city" while trying to retain her humanity. The others around her, the ones like her; she can't relate to them, won't give in to their vicious urges.
She's alone, but she can cope. Life is hard, especially now, but there must be more to it, right? Can she find her reason for being? Does it exist or is she fooling herself?
Evan is a regular guy. Always was and always will be.
He doesn't buy into this zombie thing. Why won't anyone see it for what it is? There was an accident, an outbreak, and people need help.
While everyone else acts like it's the end of the world, Evan refuses to accept that. Even if it's pointless like everyone says, even if he's risking too much for too little, he's going to help someone. Even if it's just one person...
Sadie and Evan live in different worlds, but what happens when they meet? Is Sadie just some person for Evan to help, or is she something more? Is it even possible for Evan to be attracted to her, or is she deluding herself by wanting it?
Amidst danger and disaster can they figure things out? Or is the world now really Soulless?
I fell but he caught me.
So tight and close, he must have jumped to reach me in time. He looked athletic from afar, more than capable of dashing forward and catching someone, but I honestly didn't know why he did it. I was so grateful, though. I wanted to cry for another reason now, but it felt so silly and inconsequential.
He touched me, too.
It sounded bad in my head when I thought of it like that, but that was exactly what he did. His gentle, warm hands held onto the side of my arms, rubbing up and down, relaxing me. His heat was like a blazing furnace to my cool body. I felt alive and warm under his touch, so wonderful and amazing. I knew this was how the others felt, why they rushed towards people in a frenzy when they saw them, but I'd never felt it before myself.
He helped me off of him and stood at my side, smiling at me. Reaching out his hand, he wanted to help me up. I stared at him, still feeling his warmth, curious and contented.
Like them, all I needed to do was grab his hand. He looked strong, but if I caught him off guard while he helped me up I could squeeze his hand tight in mine and pull him back to the ground. His throat seemed to shine like some bright beacon. If I scratched, bit, killed...
I took his offered hand and held onto it tight and let him help me up off the ground. He smiled at me more and moved in close.
"Are you alright?" he asked.
I squeezed his hand and pulled him towards me. He came readily, watching me with interest. Lifting his hand up, I placed it on the side of my cheek.
My cheek melted under his touch, feeling so wonderful and warm. I held his hand against my cheek and smiled at him.
"Thank you," I said. "You're so kind."
