Kissed by Fire | a teaser |
What most people run from, I run towards, with adrenaline coursing through my veins like wildfire. What drives their panic, feeds the beast within me. I can hear the terror in their voices the closer I get, and a small part of me comes alive. Not that I revel in their suffering, just the opposite in fact. The screams of agony that ride the air like smoke on the wind makes my stomach twist with disgust, and the possibility of someone deliberately causing pain without first ensuring their pleasure, brings my blood to a boil. Humans both intrigued and infuriated me.
Time seems to slow the closer I get, and the burley voice of my Captain echoes between the pained shouts of civilians. Beyond the flashes of red and yellow lights, sirens blare in the distance and a calm washes over me like so many times before. This is what I was born to do; what flows through my veins. The dancing flames draw my attention first, and a tingle races down my spine like electricity. First comes the calm, washing over me in waves as my thoughts gather. Of what I have to do, of how I have to do it before anyone else gets hurt. Then the adrenaline slams into my bloodstream and I’m sprinting towards the inferno, unable to hide the smile on my face.
“The building is too unstable,” the panic only barely reaches me over the roar of wind and flame. “Remes get back here!”
Too damn bad, is what I want to say, but my voice lodges somewhere in my throat when the flames envelope me like the caress of a lover and it’s bliss.
Pure, unadulterated pleasure.
