Eating Our Hearts Out

Scotty Matthews is an alcoholic. He should be used to waking up miles away from his university with his memory wiped, but this time feels different. Sunlight stings his skin, he's got a strange wound on his neck, and he's suddenly hungrier than he's ever felt before. Worst of all, the hunger makes him feel violent. Violent enough to kill.

Scotty needs to know what's happened to him, but all his friends can tell him about the party is that they saw him with a girl- a beautiful blonde girl dressed all in black. Scotty tries to convince himself she was just another drunk student, but it's not long before his symptoms force him to accept the truth: She was a monster, and on the night they met, she turned him into a monster too.

He's in no condition to play the hero. If he wants to get his symptoms under control, he needs her help.


Author's note

Hi there, reader! 'Eating Our Hearts Out' is a romantic vampire story, but there's no sparkling or ballroom dancing and the violence goes a heck of a lot further than a bit of vanilla stalking. I've tried my best to tell this story in the most tasteful, least gratuitous way I can, and it's still a lot of fun, but still merits a trigger warning for the following content:
- Villainous protagonists
- Graphic violence and A LOT of blood and gore
- Mild sexual references (only references, mind. If I wrote anything more than that I think I would blow up.)
- Quite a lot of swearing
- A lot of slut-shaming and fat-shaming language used against the protagonists
- Domestic abuse
- Heavy references to alcoholism and drug addiction
- Mild references to depression and eating disorders
So, yeah! Not exactly fun for the whole family. If you read this story and think I've missed anything out that ought to be added to the list, please let me know with a comment or a PM. The last thing I want to achieve with my writing is upsetting someone. That being said, if you're not sensitive to anything of this nature, I hope you enjoy my Magnum Opus!
