His Gift by Clare London

Steven awakes to a nightmare: he is alone, under the rain, amid of nothing. He is injured, scared and without a clear memory of who he is or why he is there. He knows his name, he has some flashback of his life, but still he seems to have like a cloud in his mind. He walks in the night to find a shelter, and he stumbles across an old house, apparently abandoned. But when he knocks at the door, it opens to enter him to a young handsome guy, Eliot.

Eliot is beautiful, but even more strange than his home. He never speaks clearly and he has the power to bind Steven to him: he says that he asks for Steven to come, and that Steven is his gift. Steven realizes that he is living in a parallel reality, but he seems unable to resist to Eliot sexual power; Eliot brings so much pleasure to Steven, a pleasure he never felt before.

But even if the sex is unbelievable, and the days are spent only making love, Steven can't leave his life behind. He needs to know who is Eliot, and why he is there.

The story is short, less than 50 pages, but really "haunting". Actually it's quite in theme for an Halloween's Eve. It's centered on Steven, of Eliot we know very little, a piece of memory here and there. Even if short, the plot is quite good, with a really well developed turn of the events just at the end.

I can't say much on the story, since I would risk to give up it, but let me say that I didn't expect that end, and that I was leading to believe something total different; I started to realize the things at the same time as Steven did, and so I was surprise like him in finding the true.

Ohhhh thanks so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It's a special bit of praise for me, that you found it 'haunting' ♥

It's doing quite well, I hope that continues after Halloween *lol*

Many thanks again!
