Author Notes:
These are really, really old characters of mine (one is actually an old friend's, whom I've lost contact with, but we shared this character. Am thinking of making my own, though, to respect her ownership of him.) I think, ten years ago, we were inspired by the Vampire Chronicles... even though I never got to read them because my mom was afraid of me reading them. :P

This drabble is a raw, rough, and unedited practice piece.

What a spineless coward, Theodore thought, frowning as Alexandre circled him, regarding him as if he were a newly sculpted statue. He hated it; he hated how Alexandre’s gaze fell upon his bad knee, how Alexandre smirked upon remembering the events that led to this.

“So have you changed your mind since our last talk?” Alexandre asked.

Theodore spit on Alexandre’s shoes. Alexandre raised a brow, inspecting his shoes - good, old, sturdy leather, from the most talented craftsman he knew from his century - and clucking his tongue.

“That’s no way to behave toward the person who may be able to save your life,” Alexandre remarked.

“Save my life!” Theodore said. “Save my life, by taking everything I own away?”

“You own nothing, Theodore.”



“I own the one thing you cannot take.”

Alexandre laughed, and there, in the cold alleyway, Theodore trembled.
