    Summary

    When Elijah moved to a new town, he expected the typical small town bigotry. He didn't expect to meet a vampire. A very attractive vampire. Who was also attracted to him. But not everything was as it seemed. Elijah had a secret.

    This story is an extended metaphor. It was created as a paper for a class. We were instructed to write a fanfiction or story that used vampires as a metaphor for a social topic (issue, problem, etc.). I invite everyone to guess what the metaphor is. In the 11th chapter, I will explain it.

    This is mostly an original work. I use the idea of a vampire family unit. But that is it. The vampires don't sparkle. (I feel confidant labeling this as an original work with several Twilight influences in the way the world is set up. Anything remotely Twilightesque I do not claim any right too.)

    Summary

    He wonders some days when the darkness of the closet seems to be pressing in, where it's just him and these four walls, if Kuroo was always like this, deep down. Somewhere that Kenma didn’t even know exist, hiding his true nature from him. Maybe it was something that only emerged when they started dating, this cruelty of his, or maybe it was when Kenma tried to break up with him.

    Well, Kenma thinks to himself, head rolling tiredly, it’s not like it matters much. Kuroo was never going to let him out, was he?
