“His wife’s chest rose and fell under the pressure of his knees. He fed on the convulsions of her sweaty flesh. When her breathing failed, he sucked in the purpling of her cheeks and the wilting of her breasts. Her body stilled. He opened his eyes to the darkness; relished in the death of the woman he loved.
Seconds after the fear high left his mind, the man glanced at the body lying on the right side of his matrimonial bed. The sight of his own sleeping flesh hugging the already rotting corpse of his wife ripped a scream out of his spirit. He tried willing his body to move, but the recent violence had broken the thread that tied his essence and flesh.
He glanced back and forth between his wife’s corpse and the seemingly lifeless shell that used to contain his own humanity. He howled. And the universe howled, too, rejoicing and grieving for the birth of its youngest nightmare eater.”
I know Gina’s AEDGYTH “pronounced Edith,” is a female and Sweettooth is a male, but those healthy fangs and fierce expression continue to make me think of the eater of nightmares.
