Jasper drags the man into a dark alley, his movements swift and silent in the night.
The man smells like cheap whiskey and filth. He has no name, no home, and soon he'll have no life either.
Jasper tells himself it's for the best. He tells himself he needs this. No one will mourn this man. He'll drift into death unnoticed, and Jasper will walk away sated – able to live another day. It's not personal – it's life or death. Survival. It's him or this nameless, faceless man.
Even so, he gags on the blood as it slides down his throat.
Thank you to Oscar519 for beta'ing this for me. :)
So I'm back again with another round of the Twilight Twenty-five. If you're not familiar, it's a livejournal challenge in which participants are given three months to answer 25 prompts with either one shots (over 1000 words) or drabbles (exactly 100 words). The prompts can be found at the link above. This round, we had to choose a "central character" to base all our entries on... and of course I chose Jasper. So this is the first of 25 Jasper-centric drabbles and one shots. I hope you enjoy. :)
