Sonic looked out his bedroom window, watching the sun lower itself past the western horizon. In just a few hours, his vampire boyfriend, Shadow, would appear before him for another night of romantic love. He sat on his bed, waiting, as the sky turned from blue to navy to black.
And then, perched at the window sill was his nocturnal lover, looking as handsome as ever.
"Why, hello, my precious." he said, lowering himself into Sonic's room. The blue mortal smiled with undying love at his dark boyfriend. With slow, lustful movements, Shadow crawled onto the bed, gazing sensually down at his lover. He leaned down and started to kiss Sonic passionately, gently cradling Sonic's cheeks in his hands. The mortal wrapped his arms and legs around the vampire, pulling him closer, enticing him to continue.
Shadow soon broke away, however, and leaned in towards Sonic's neck, running his tongue across his fangs. The blue one knew what he wanted, so he tilted his head, allowing his lover full access to the veins in his neck. He felt a brief sting of pain as the vampire's fangs bit into him, the draining sensation as he drank the mortal's blood. Shadow pulled away and licked the marks left from his fangs, then lovingly looked back at his boyfriend.
"I love you, Sonic." he said.
"I love you, too, Shadow." Sonic replied with just as much love.
The couple kissed again, but only briefly. When Sonic reached up to close the gap between them, Shadow took his hand.
"Come with me, my love." he said. "To my realm. I have something planned for us tonight."
This piqued Sonic's interest-he had never been to Shadow's realm, but he had wondered what it was like ever since meeting his boyfriend. Would it be similar to his own world? Would it be different?
Still holding Sonic's hand, Shadow snapped his fingers, and a wall of blackness surrounded them. When it cleared, they now stood in a beautiful dancing pavilion behind an elegant manor. The night sky was clear, and a blood red moon loomed overhead, with dozens of twinkling stars. Sonic marveled at the beauty; it was truly gorgeous.
"May I have this dance, my love?" Shadow asked.
Sonic smiled and nodded. Shadow led him to the middle of the pavilion, then held out his hand to some flora growing just beyond the sterling silver railing. The red flowers bloomed, and from their opened buds came slow, dreamy music, unlike any Sonic had ever heard before. Shadow placed one hand on Sonic's side, the mortal's on the vampire's shoulder, their free hands joined. And the couple turned in a slow circle to the beautiful music.
"Sonic, I love you so much." Shadow said as he dipped Sonic. "I want you to be with me forever, and I never want to lose you." He spun his mortal lover around before continuing the waltz.
"I love you, too, Shadow." Sonic replied. "I'll always be with you."
"That's why I wanted to ask you," Shadow leaned in close to Sonic, "will you allow me to turn you?"
Sonic's steps nearly faltered, but not with shock or fear, with surprise. He had to admit, he wasn't expecting that from Shadow. He fell silent as he processed the idea of becoming a vampire.
"Sonic? If you don't want me to..."
"Oh, I was just thinking, Shadow. And yes, I want you to do it."
"You really do?"
"Yes. I always want to be with you, Shadow."
Shadow nodded and stood with Sonic in the pavilion's center. He kissed Sonic's hand in his own, then gently bit into his wrist, his arm, his neck. This time, he didn't lick the marks, leaving them untreated. Thus allowing the vampiric spell to take hold.
Sonic felt his knees weaken, and he clung to Shadow, feeling the effect of his bites beginning to work on him. Chills swept through his body, and he hugged his boyfriend closer to himself, needing warmth. His mind became clouded with dark thoughts, of sweet blood and nocturnal nights.
"Can you feel yourself changing, Sonic?" Shadow asked.
"Y-Yes, Shadow." Sonic weakly got out. "I...I feel it h-happening..."
Sonic's body went limp in Shadow's arms as he blacked out. Shadow looked sweetly at his boyfriend's pale, unconscious face, then placed a gentle kiss on his unmoving lips. Sonic's eyes opened again, only instead of their usual green, they were now the same blood red shade as Shadow's. His fingers absently went to his teeth, and he could feel the sharp tips of fangs. He looked to Shadow, who smiled and nodded in confirmation.
Sonic was now a vampire, like his lover.
The former mortal hedgehog shared one more kiss with his boyfriend before the two resumed their dance under the blood moon, now truly bound together.
As a couple of the night.
