I sat on my bed, drawing. As I often did. The rough brown and grey blankets lightly scraping my tender skin, the bedding itself cold against the ice of the nights wind. The scilence echoing across the vast green feilds that went on further then I would ever understand. The mattress stuffed with hay and wood shavings feeling as unpleasant as it sounds.
I listened to the quiet of the night dragging the pencils across the paper in hope of something to occupy my time.
There was a Knock at my door which made me jump it opening with a creak meer seconds later
"Thomas, it's late" my father warned "you should be asleep"
"I know dad, I just wanted another one to try and sell tomorrow" I answered packing my drawings away and putting them under my bed he nodded with a grim look on his face as he looked at me closer
"What are you wearing?" He asked
"My clothes dad" I answered trying not to look at him
"Wearing those tomorrow are you?"
"No! Of course not I'll have a fresh wet tomorrow"
"Oh will you? I seem to have forgotten when was it exactly you got yourself engaged to an princess?' he asks
"Well never-" I began
"Ohh I see, so a lady was it?"
"So when exactly did you get yourself a pretty little lady who's going to be doing all this extra washing?"
"No dad. I don't" I sighed
"Moneys tight enough as it is, you think I can afford you going though clothes like this!" He screams "take them off" he ordered as he loomed over my bed
"Dad I'm cold-" I began
"You think I give a shit if your cold!" He yelled hitting the back of my head hard enough I would have a bruise by morning and it forced out a few tears "take them off Thomas" he ordered
"Now!" He screamed so I did as he told me too putting the clothes on the floor by my bed holding the covers closer to my naked body to hide myself from him and to keep out the chill, "I see you doing this again, I'm kicking you all the way to work with your cock out" he warned Slamming my door shut as he left. I pulled my covers closer as I began to shiver as the darkness crept like a monster into everything and anything.
I stood with my father as he tried to sell the things he has found even if he didn't sell much of anything. I looked up a moment and saw a beautiful sight.
A woman with long beautiful hair, with soft bouncing curls. Her face like a angel, her body like a statue of a goddess, her skin as pale as if she was made of stone. Like a beautiful angel statue come to life,she wore a dress more beautiful then any other clothing I had ever seen, her body hidden below the dress except a hint of her chest where the dress wrapped over her. I looked at this woman wide eyed no doubt my mouth open like a fish and she turned to look at my father's stall her eyes a moment turning pink before returning to a beautiful blue. She smiled at my father and he was... well as inammered as I was.
"Umm what a lovely necklace" she said looking at one of the little necklaces my father found a while ago "may I?" She asks
"Of course miss" he smiled moving around to help her they chatted a while I wasn't sure about what before she gave him a kiss on the cheek and she continued off though the market.
Something about her... Unsettled me.
I sat in my room drawing trying desperately to work. But I heard the front door, I got some clothes on but as I went out into our house my father was there opening the door dressed nicer then I had ever seen him.
"Good evening" a familiar voice smiled as he opened the door I looked at it was that woman we had seen a few days ago, in another beautiful elegant dress she smiled to my father as he let her in.
"I won't be a moment Lin" he smiled to her before he ran to his room again.
I looked at her, suspicious of her for some reason like something was telling me not to trust her. She smiled at me kneeling to be closer to me
"Humm you must be Thomas" she smiled I didn't want to answer but her voice sounded like sweet music and I felt rude not to say anything but I simply nodded. "Your a very big boy for your age" she smiled I simply nodded again "humm, your a very handsome young man" she smiled
"Thank you" I answered "your very beautiful"
"Aww, aren't you sweet" she smiled kissing my head "I'm sure your mother was very beautiful too?"
"She was" I nodded trying not to cry "why do you want to see him?"
"Your father asked me out for a little walk" she smiled as he came back all dressed and presentable "can you do me a little favour Thomas?" She asks and I nodded "you look after the house till we get back alright, be a big grown up and look after everything?" She asks and I nodded blushing a little "good boy, but I promise you'll be in bed when we get home?" She asks and I nodded "humm good boy" she smiled kissing my head again before she left with my father.
In some ways I hated everything. My father was out almost every night with that woman and any time I tried to tell him I had a funny feeling about her he would simply hit me and tell me I was stupid. I knew he didn't like her he just desired her, he didn't love her he just wanted to use her. I hated it I felt like he was betraying my mother. Any time he didn't go out with her as soon as night came he would moan and groan her name until sunlight came. I laid in my bed shivering in the cold listening to him Calling for her over and over
"Lin... Lin.... Lin please... Please my sweet Lin... Lin...Lin!" I couldn't sleep so I got up slipping some clothes on I snuck out my room grabbing a book from the shelf and sneaking back to my room, I looked around for a while in the light of the moon thought my window reading about werewolves, mermaids and vampires. When I saw something out the corner of my eye I could have sworn I saw something... Moving in the darkness.
I assumed it was likely my imagination especially reading about monsters so I flipped a few chapters and I landed on a whole over section
'seductrises and alurring demons'
I shrugged reading on about the sexy creatures all of them evil beautiful women who reveal themselves to be murderous creatures and I read about something else.
Moon daughters or Enchantress', arrive only on full moons to search for there pray. Mostly found at night however they can journey into the daylight if they choose.
There skin as pale as marble, often hidden below beautiful dresses. Yet once a prey has been selected there eyes turn pink and they reveal there perfectly sexual bodies to there prey.
They will cause there prey to wallow in a aroused state calling out the predetors name and in the light of the full moon she will claim him.
I shut my book in fear listening to the scilence, as darkness covered everything with only the light of the full moon thought my window. Then I realized, it was scilent.
I crept out my room seeing his door open a crack, I was scared but I knew he must have just fallen asleep.
I pushed open the door and I saw a terrifying sight.
My father laid naked on his bed, blood covering almost everything in his room, the window open the curtians blowing the in the breeze, he struggled in silent pain as something was eating him alive.
It sat over his waist flood dripping down marble like skin. It had claws and fangs like a wolf, bright pink eyes but a human body, small but bouncy breasts, a tight curve of a arse and its clearly human pussy exposed. I wanted to scream but not a sound exited my mouth it turned to me and I saw it the face it was that woman. That Lin.
She was an enchantress.
She shifted in a way that made her fangs and her claws disappear as she covered her body with a loose version of one of the dresses
"Thomas, I'm so sorry you had to see that sweetheart" she smiled going to come closer but I backed away
"Thomas!" He said coughing up blood as he did
"You... Your killing him" I said in shock unsure what to do
"Your not going to run, are you sweetheart?" She asked but as she came closer With his Last ounce of strength he threw the knife he had in his side table it hit her back and she let out a horrible wail that sounded like the cries of a wolf and of a tourched human woman she ran like a wolf escaping out the window my father died not seconds later likely from blood loss. I grabbed another knife following the trail of blood out the window and into the woods.
I followed that blood for what felt like hours till I reached an old stone building and there she laid on the stone steps. I went over to her and she looked afraid of me
"Please.... Please... Kill me" she begged in pain
"I- I can't kill anyone" I told her she smiled in her pain as she took the blade of my knife in her hand putting it to her heart
"Just push" she begged
"I can't... Even if you did kill my father I I can't kill you, I'd never be able to live with myself"
"Then make me a promise.." she coughed "for fill your promise and I will think no Ill will for what you do to me" she begs
"Take care of y/n" she says
"I promise" I nodded as I did as she asked and slowly pushed "I will take care of y/n... Wait,who's y/n?" I asked as her eyes faded to white and she was dead.
I froze for a moment, unsure what I had done. I stepped away trying to rub the blood of my hands just as I heard a noise.
It was a whine much like what lin screamed when she was stabbed but quieter softer more scared then in pain.
I looked and there was something... coming down the steps it was a creature with fangs and claws but smaller, younger. It went to Lin and rubbed it's face against hers confused and frightening
"Mama" she said as it began to change.
Her skin as pale as marble, her eyes a beautiful y/e/c, her little body covered in a little blue dress, she was a little girl, not much younger than me. She was a beautiful little girl, "mama? Mama? Why won't you come inside mama?" She asked
"Your mother's dead" I told her "I'm sorry..."
"Dead... But, but I can't hunt. I'm not old enough, I can't survive on my own" she cried
"It's okay, I'm Thomas, and I'm going to look after you" I told her taking her hand
"You will?" She asked
"I promise" I smiled she looked at me her eyes turning pink a second before she instantly turned back "what's your name?"
"Y/n" she smiled.
