"Remember one fucking thing bunny" He said as he brought the leather belt down upon her back, causing her to scream out in pleasurable agony. "This isn't for you, it's for me."He exclaimed as he threw her onto the cold, cement ground and left the room. Pathetically enough, all she desired was for him to come back and take her again.

"On far away Sarran, the Warriorpair Jonal and Tonas, along with the rest of the planet's males, lost their Fem when the Zyptz unleased a toxin that killed only females. Sarrans mates in Triad, two males with one female, and without fems, their civilization stared extinction in the face.
But the Sarrans are tough and smart. They searched the galaxy for a genetically compatible species and found Earth. They were told the Earthen fems were an inferior species, with many unable to establish the psychic link essential to the triad bond, but they had to try.
En route, from as far out as the asteroid belt, they heard fem voices calling to the mates. Success! But their joy is short-lived, because the human fems are in pain -- they are dying. The Zyptz found Earth before the Sarrans and unleashed their toxin.
Admirals Jonal and Tonas are determined to obtain a fem at almost any cost, and rush to save Anya, because they've already mated with her in their minds."
The Scarlet Plague is a post-apocalyptic fiction novel written by Jack London and originally published in London Magazine in 1912.
The story takes place in 2073, sixty years after an uncontrollable epidemic, the Red Death, has depopulated the planet.
Mina Sun needs to die. Despite being one of the undead already.
Too bad she's a bit busy right now. Her best friend is missing. Her family is pestering her to visit. And she's struggling to fit in with the group of vampires that invited her to join their conclave. These same vampires make their second thoughts clear in the whispers and sidelong glances when she enters the room.
But Mina doesn't need their whispers to tell her she's different. She hears it when her blood sings and feels it when her gut twists, fighting a losing battle against the monster inside. The monster she's doomed to become.
And now bodies are turning up, sucked so dry they look like mummies. It's not the gargoyles: they leave a mangled, gnawed-on corpse...if they leave a corpse at all.
Instead, a new evil stalks the night. The best clue to its identity are the dying words of a homeless man, raving about the reign of night, the death of light and a blade of darkness.
Can Mina unravel the riddle, find this new evil and save her friend without releasing the monster inside?
