: For the August Fic-a-Day, Day 23. Also because I was surfing the FFA list, and suddenly got an Idea. *facepalm*
Harmony giggled at the man standing on the other side of the bars. Really, he was the cutest thing ever. "Of course not," she said. "Why would I want to?"
"There's nothing about being human that you miss?" Dr. Jackson tried again, inquisitive blue eyes wide behind his glasses. "Going out in the daylight? Eating real food?"
"Oh, I can eat real food," she shrugged. Didn't he know anything? "It just doesn't taste right anymore. But why would I want to trade that for being weaker? Having a pesky soul again? Getting wrinkles
?" She shuddered at the thought.
"You're still convinced, then, that you don't have a soul?" he asked, looking troubled. "You've said you believe the uh, vampire demon took its place. But what if it's just trapped under the parasitic spirit-- isn't there some part of you that wants to be free?"
He stared at her, intently, as though looking for something in her eyes. Harmony scoffed at him. "For such a smart guy, you're really pretty dumb, aren't you. Look, I've met
a vampire who had his soul restored, and let me tell you, it wasn't pretty. All that angst is totally
bad for the waistline. But I'm harmless, seriously! I usually eat animal blood! You don't have to put me in this sarc-thingy; I won't hurt anyone else!"
"I wish I could believe that," Dr. Jackson said, regretfully. Then lifted something that looked like a really bizarre dildo. He pressed a button, and it changed shape in a way that really didn't change her opinion of it-- but did change her opinion of him
"Oooh, kinky, Dr. J," she said, pressing up against the bars again. "Going to let me out after all?"
The thing spat unexpected blue fire-- and she knew no more.
