The Gaslight



Satiated, Lord James Barrister pushed Caroline nearly out of the bed. She caught herself just before going over the edge. She stood and wiped clean the mess he had left on her. She dressed slowly and silently. James lay naked. Eyes closed. He savored the moment. Until he breathed heavy through his badly mangled nose. James inhaled deeply and heard his breath rattle in his chest. He reached over and scratched at his arm, breaking open another sore. He watched the puss seep onto his sheets. He knew the time had come. The moon would be full in days. It was time to attempt the cure.
