Urban Fantasy Heartbreaker - VampireShe slew her husband, but that was not the sin.
They had been walking for many days across a great desert. Neither had water but each others' sweat touch their lips for nearly a week. Both could feel nothing but hot dust in their throats. When the woman turned on her husband, it was for water. She cut open his neck and drank from him in the heat of the daytime sun, and for the rest of the day she lay in the sand breathing heavily. Sun looked down upon her.
“You wish to slake yourself with all the blood in a human's body. You cannot do this. Only the gods can do this. So, you shall be like them, holding power mortals can never touch,” the Sun said. “Blood will sate your hunger and thirst, only for a time. Only blood can sate the hunger. Forever, until even the stars wink out, one by one, and unto again the next iteration, and when there is no blood, you will shrivel until blood is spilled upon you again.

Spider's VirtueThe story is a lie, unless you are a Spider.
Spider loves all her children, and there is very little she wouldn't do in order to protect them. One day every animal was sitting around talking about their own families and how many virtues they have.

It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
