I'm glad I'm not the only fan of the 2002 film, and I also like Lestat too. :)


Previously...

Lestat smiled as he pulled himself out of his fantasy. He hoped to make that one come true. Very soon. His smile grew bigger as he looked down at his prize. Yugi's innocence would soon be in his hands. Of that he was sure.

Then he heard a very familiar voice...

"Lestat. It is good to see you again."


Three thirty in the morning,
Not a soul in sight
The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonless summer night

Raindrops on the windshield
There's a storm moving in
He's headin' back from somewhere
t
hat he never should have been

And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

Every light is burnin'
In a house across town
She's pacin' by the telephone
In her faded flannel gown

Askin' for a miracle
Hopin' she's not right
Prayin' it's the weather
That's kept him out all night

And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls
~Garth Brooks, The Thunder Rolls


Lestat turned around, and there he was.

His maker, Marius.

"And you, Marius," he replied. His grey eyes glittered with the look of an equal – a friend.

That was a look he'd seen a lot with mortals he'd seen often when walking at night. After all, it was no surprise that mortals missed each other. He had hidden in the shadows of rooms in houses he'd been invited into and watched them write to each other's families. It made him want to wish he could do that with other vampires.

Of course, now he had other matters to attend to.

"I've heard," said Marius, "that you've been looking for a young boy so you can have a little brother." He then looked over at the sleeping figure of Yugi, and he smiled, showing his fangs a little. "Obviously, you had to pick out him. Good choice, too, now that I think about it."

"Of course, Marius," replied Lestat as Marius turned back to him. "After all, there are a lot of boys out there who wish for an older brother. They usually don't get one, although some do, of course. However, Yugi will become what they themselves are not – a little brother. As my little brother, Yugi reminds me of the young boy I used to be as a mortal – innocent, sweet, caring and having an angel-like face."

Marius nodded in understanding. "I see. And those other boys who don't have an older brother – I take it that they turn to you for an older brother figure," he said.

"Exactly," Lestat nodded.

Then both Lestat and Marius turned upon hearing Yugi say "Ooh. Ow, ooh" as he stirred and opened his eyes, and then pulled himself into a sitting position.

Then Yugi looked up as he made eye contact with both Marius and Lestat. For some reason, even though he wasn't told by Lestat or anybody else, Yugi was definitely sure that Marius was Lestat's sire. Exactly how he knew, Yugi didn't know.

"Hi," he said, while putting on the smile he had worked on using for quite some time (since he had turned fifteen, to be exact). It was all he could think of to say at this particular moment. But on the inside, he was thinking to himself, Oh, great. Now there are two vampires I have to deal with.

Lestat then turned to Marius and smirked. Marius looked at Yugi and then grinned as well.

"Nice job, Lestat. He's a keeper," Marius remarked.

"Hmph, thank you, Marius. I'm happy with what I caught as well," replied Lestat.

"Well, you take care of yourself, Lestat... and your prize, too, if I'm not mistaken," said Marius.

"I will," nodded Lestat, and the two shook hands. Then Marius left, leaving Lestat with a young male human he could seduce so easily... alone.

Lestat smirked. He would definitely have some fun with this mortal boy. After all, he had been looking for a little brother so he could teach him the ropes about being a vampire, hunting, the right kinds of prey, stalking and – now came the best part – feeding on their blood.

Yugi winced upon seeing the smirk on his captor's face. This was so unfair. He knew that for sure. He was going to be a little brother? And not just any little brother, but the little brother of none other than the vampire Lestat, aka the "Brat Prince" himself?

Yugi then blinked in puzzlement as he asked himself the questions that, months before it seemed, he never would've thought about telling himself anyway.

He then pulled himself out of his musing as he felt the bed drop and Lestat's hand on his shoulder...

Slowly, he turned to see Lestat, who was smirking still.

"Yugi, don't worry," Lestat said, his voice now smooth, sultry and seductive. It was the voice he used to lure his victims – usually criminals, such as rapists (including child rapists), child abusers, drug dealers, muggers and serial killers – into a false sense of security. However, when Lestat lifted the spell he had put on them, they soon found out too late that he had led them to their deaths.

Yugi then turned and looked down at the bedspread as he bit his lower lip, something Lestat found to be very cute and... arousing...


Well, I hope you liked this chapter – even though it was short. But I prefer quality over quantity any day, of course. Feedback (especially the nice kind) is very much appreciated, of course. :)
