"Eternal Love Bites": P.T. Macias

Have you met Rage? Why not? I bet that you have!
"Not all love bites are equal! Some are for eternity!"
One click it! Reserve your copy!

Forever Love Bite’s Copyright 2018 P.T. Macias
Included in the Eternal Love Bite's Box Set!!
Rage teleports over to Nicole’s office. He looks for her in the office and then looks out into the garden. He places the microchip case on her desk.
He walks over to the french doors and walks down the steps. His eyes roam around the garden looking for Nicole. His red lips turn up, and his white teeth gleam as the moon rays sheath him in an embrace. His eyes widen, then he lowers his eyelids, focusing on Nicole as a Fairy.
She twirls around in the garden, the moon rays caressing her as she spins around and around releasing soft pink iridescent fairy dust. Her pale pink woven translucent, shimmering organza bodice drapes over her full firm breasts, drawing his attention to her pink nipples. The skirt swirls out around her thighs, appearing like strawberry whip cream, exposing her trim legs.
Fuck! She’s incredibly beautiful! I love how her soft pink skin shimmers as she swirls under the moon rays. Why didn’t I notice before? She’s simply lovely!
The soft strawberry and rose scent drift towards Rage, enveloping him and assailing his senses. He inhales deeply; her scent seeps deeply into his soul. He slowly exhales, shuddering as his fiery blood races through his veins.
Damn it! She’s so damn enticing. I never noticed her scent. What the fuck!
He squints his eyes looking at her full breasts as she moves her hands up to pull out her scrunchie hair tie from her hair, releasing her soft silky curly hair. Her hair swirls around her; the shimmering Fairy dust falls on her and around her. She inhales deeply, instantly his spicy scent assaults her soul.
Oh my, Rage is here! I’m going to fly over to him.
Rage’s eyes are fixed on her as she twirls around and suddenly disappears. He walks out into the garden and looks around following the sprinkle of pink sparkling Fairy dust. He cups his hand, moving in a circle trying to catch some mystical dust.
Nicole suddenly appears in her miniature size, roughly 12 inches tall, and sits on his open palm. She smiles up at him, winking, and blows him a kiss with pink Fairy dust scattering over him.
“Wow! You’re exquisite! Nicolette, what a privilege to see you as a Fairy!”
Nicole throws back her head, leaning into the curve of his fingers, crossing her long legs. Her laughter rings out, soft, enchanting, and musical.
“Rage, you’re such a flirt! I know that you’ve had all sorts of ladies. Truly, you’ve never seen a Fairy?”
Rage laughs moving his hand closer and moves his left hand up to place a long elegant index finger under her chin. He slowly lifts her face up, slowly his lips turn up into a sexy smile. He gazes deeply into her beautiful bright pink eyes searching for her secrets.
“Truly, you’re my first!”
Nicole disappears, leaving pink fairy dust in his palm. She appears next to him in her full size wrapping her arms around his arm. She looks up into his startled face. Her laughter rings out, enthralling him.
“Ohhh, I’m your first?! How special is that! Now you’ve managed to captivate my heart.”
Rage moves quickly wrapping his arms around her small waist pulling her closer to him.
“Nicolette, you have no idea how mesmerizing you are!”
Nicole grins moving her hands up his arms to wrap around his neck.
“Ohhh. . . . . la la! I’m so going to take that as a possibility. . . . .a . . . . . . promise. . . . . a real opportunity of seeing you!”

Death's Shadow by Dariel Raye and Muffy Wilson
Everyone gets what they deserve. Everybody knows that.                             
Hell, it didn’t matter anyway. She was proof. What was a good Catholic college girl doing walking the streets in the wee hours before dawn? She could hardly reconcile the two opposing lifestyles herself.
Brianna was all alone on the barren, black, wet streets. Curiously, she was unafraid to walk the night with the underbelly of society. The longer she followed this path, the more accustomed she became to living in the darkness.
Tonight was likely identical to the night her sister was murdered. She was probably troubled by the same things—haunted by the depths of her own depravity, or at least her own actions, but she was doing what she had to do...for Tatianna. She owed it to her. The click-clack of her heels on the sidewalk announced her approach as she headed…where? Home? That was a laugh. It made her think of the first time—her first time, maybe her sister’s first time—on the streets and in the black flesh pits of San Francisco that served up watered down whiskey, easy women and the finest drug connections money could buy, cheat or steal.
Shrouded in the black lies hidden by the night, she did whatever she needed to do to find out what happened to her sister, even when it meant entertaining the sleaziest the streets had to offer. The rain always had that effect, kept the good ones home while the creeps washed out of every skank black hole. The things she’d done in the name of finding Tatianna’s killer would have sent her careening toward confession immediately after puking her guts out, but there was no time for that.
The police didn’t know and had no more leads. What else could she do? She had to find out. She had to help. At least, she had to try.
But, she got swept away in the trying, caught up in a life she no longer recognized as her own.
Rain pelted the street even harder as she continued along the sidewalk. It was getting harder to remember the differences between her sister’s face and her own. The details of Tatianna’s face seemed to fade more and more as time passed. Sometimes, she felt so lost, it was hard to remember why she was here. It was getting harder and harder…and easier, too. There were nights she couldn’t bear to think about who killed her sister and there were nights she could think of little else. She couldn’t believe the police actually laughed at her. Clearly, they had no intentions of doing anything. She was the only one who cared.
 The line between purpose and obsession became obscure. The fact that she was here proved she’d already crossed it.
For tonight, she avoided eye contact, her way of saying she was closed for business as she headed to her one-bedroom flat.
There was a wild thought afloat that nothing positive ever happens until you hit the very bottom of the abyss. Nothing positive had even begun to happen in her life. Guess she had further to fall, since she clearly had not hit rock bottom. Until then, she entertained herself with the thought of finding her sister’s killer and wiping those mocking grins off the police officers’ faces.
Brianna turned at the sound of a heavy, male voice across the street. Despite the rain, his tone made his intentions clear. She didn’t have to see him up close. Fan-fuckin’-tastic. Another creep. Apparently, she had one more interview to perform before the night ended. No names, no “what do you do for a living”, no talk about wives, lovers, divorces or kids. Those were her rules and if they wanted to fuck her, they did it on her terms and that included answering her questions.
The rhythmic thudding of heavy boots coupled with splashing water snatched her away from her thoughts to face the approaching customer. Sighing, she resigned herself to one more. Clear, simple, no muss no fuss…and no lying or kissing. She didn’t want to kiss the underbelly of society, and she didn’t abide lies well. They could save the lies and facades for someone else – someone who cared enough to keep things pleasant. She reached into her over-shoulder bag and whipped out Tati’s picture, always hoping against hope. Maybe this one would supply a lead.
Vengeance by John Ling
Maya Raines hated the idea of walking into a trap, but she decided to do it anyway. She was dressed in a Muslim robe — long and loose and rustling in the wind. Her face was covered by a veil. She carried a grocery bag as she moved along the sidewalk, being careful not to trip on the pockmarked concrete and scattered rubble. All around her, ominous black flags hung from the shopfronts and soared from the rooftops, declaring the rise of an Islamist caliphate. And just ahead, a roadblock had been set up, manned by jihadi fighters. A modified pickup truck — a technical — was parked on the intersection, with a machine gun mounted on its rear bed. Maya could hear Arabic being spoken in the distance. It sounded harsh and strident; completely different to the gentle melodic rhythm of the Malay language that she was used to. These men were foreign Sunnis. They had come from as far afield as Egypt and Libya, drawn to Malaysia by the promise of killing local Shiites. Maya felt the slow burn of anxiety in her stomach…
Facing the Past by Alexa Padgett
“Hank. Thirteen hours. At dawn, Jonathan, gone for thirteen hours.”
Hank turned toward Nancy, his look hollow. Nothing moved across his face, through his eyes. He tilted his head, marginally interested as she swallowed then gasped for air. Hank closed his eyes. “I can’t see any better in the dark than they can,” he said. “You heard the detective say they brought in the dogs. A helicopter from Fort Worth. It’s a full-scale search, almost everyone in town was out looking till it got too dark.”
A faint hum. Louder, a thwap, thwap overhead, a blinding spotlight. Again.
“They could miss him from up there.”
“We’ve already missed him,” Hank shot back, eyes glinting in the semi-darkness.
Nancy shrank back, away from him.
He lowered his head nearly to his knees. Inhaled, exhaled. “My son.”
Cicadas hummed, pressing their bodies against the house. Nothing could hold them together. Not with Jonny missing.
A whippoorwill called. Hank stood there, between the foyer and the living room where Nancy huddled.
“What are we going to do?” she asked him.
Another pass from the helicopter. A dog barking.
Hank hesitated again before seeming to consciously lift his leg to step into the room.
He lay his hand on her shoulder, fingers against her collarbone, his face telling Nancy he was too used up to do more as darkness crowded out the faint porch light.
