Every time Mina had to venture into the sub-basement she became very anxious. That was basically Alucard’s floor and it was just as eerie and intimidating as he was. It had been almost a week since she had even seen him around the Manor at all. During a meeting in the library she had caught him looking at her for just a brief moment, but there was something unusual in his eyes. It was a little strange, since she was always the one getting caught staring at him. She couldn’t help it, he was always the most interesting looking person in the room and his very presence commanded the attention.
As she made her way through the winding hallways and began to descend into the dark sub-basement, her heart fluttered. She was a creature of the night now, yes, but this part of the mansion creeped her out. It was unclear to her whether this was because of the draftiness of the cold halls or the unsettling prospect of Alucard possibly appearing at any moment.
Toward the end of one of the long halls, a floor length mirror sat along the wall among some other lavish furnishings. As Mina passed by it, something caught her eye. She immediately stopped and took a step backward, doing a double take. Her reflection was staring back at her. Normally she did not have one- not since becoming a vampire.
She looked herself up and down, curiously examining her vampire form in the mirror for the first time. It wasn’t quite as scary as she had imagined. She opened her mouth and ran her tongue along her top row of teeth, lingering at the pointed fangs. They were actually kind of cute, and not nearly as prominent or alarming as Alucard’s.
“Why is my reflection there?” she wondered, narrowing her eyes. “Does he have special mirrors down here or something?” It was so embarrassing, she knew so little about the rules and special conditions of being a supernatural being.
Cautiously, she continued gazing into the mirror, taking the time to smooth out her uniform and straighten her tie. Her hair was pulled up into a high bun and a few strands of hair had fallen around her face. As she brought her hands up to brush the strands away, she suddenly felt a chill go through her body.
A mass of shadows materialized behind her and before she had time to think or react, a solid form was suddenly up against her back and towering over her in a very familiar way. She flinched and her eyes grew wide. Alucard was there, grinning wickedly at her in the reflection of the mirror. His pointed teeth were ghoulishly on display and his eyes were wild.
“Do you tempt me intentionally?” he asked in a sultry tone, letting his eyes fall to her exposed neck.
“W-What?” Mina asked in startled confusion.
“Your hair is never kept up,” he said, “Yet you come into my chambers with a bare neck this evening.”
Mina placed her hand over the side of her neck. “I-uh, no…I just happened to…um…” she muttered nervously. She had a legitimate reason to be down here! Integra had sent her to search for some misplaced books…But she was so nervous she was having great difficulty forming any actual sentences.
A smug grin crept across Alucard’s face. He loved watching her squirm and knew exactly how to press her buttons. He always managed to turn every one of their interactions into some kind of game, purely to amuse himself and alleviate his boredom.
“M-Master…” Mina said sheepishly, “Why do we have reflections here?”
Alucard slowly leaned his face down until it was right beside hers. “It is there if I wish for you to see it,” he replied, intentionally letting the breath of his words graze her ear.
“Oh…” she said so softly it registered as a whisper. She had meant for it to come out much more confident and nonchalant, but everytime he showed up she found herself having to focus more on breathing. His presence was so imposing and all encompassing that she often forgot to take regular breaths and became lightheaded.
He reached around with one hand and grabbed onto the end of her tie. “You’re dressed up,” he said, tugging it very gently.
Mina’s toes curled inside her boots and she bit down on the inside of her cheek. “It’s just my formal uniform…” she said quietly, wringing her hands together nervously.
“It looks nice,” he said after a short pause, letting his other hand snake around the side of her hip.
Mina blushed. An outright compliment was certainly the last thing she expected from him - she had prepared herself for a smug comment or snarky joke. It caught her off guard and she suddenly felt even more disarmed.
He pulled her hip against him, closing the small gap of space that had been separating their bodies. Mina felt her heart nearly stop, especially when confronted by the sheer intensity of his gaze in the mirror. She knew very well that he could have or take whatever he wanted from her, his eyes said it. Even the height difference between them was a staggering reminder of it - he was at least a foot taller than her.
Alucard lowered his head again, finally breaking their eye contact, and affectionately nuzzled his face against the nape of her neck. As he breathed in the scent of his timid servant, he appeared almost intoxicated by it. Mina was nearly positive she heard a tiny noise escape him, but she couldn’t be certain.
Chills spread across her body as she felt the tip of his nose trailing up the nape of her neck, and every time he exhaled she could feel the hint of his cool breath fall against her delicate skin. She lowered her face and cast her eyes to the floor, too nervous to continue watching.
Alucard swiftly brought his hand up and placed his thumb just under her chin. “Look at me,” he demanded telepathically, tilting her face slightly upward so she had no choice but to observe. Frozen in place, she watched his face slowly inching closer to the side of her neck. Her legs felt like they were turning to jelly, but something inside her was beginning to ignite.
The flames in his eyes were silently asserting the dominance he had over her, and something about the hunger burning there was incredibly arousing. She was definitely frightened, but her fear was accompanied by an unexplainable longing. Just the sight of his enormous gloved hand fixed so possessively on her hip bone did things to her she didn’t understand. And as his servant, she couldn’t help but want to do whatever pleased him.
Alucard’s lips brushed very lightly against her neck, just beside her bite scars. A tiny hushed moan slipped from her mouth as she watched his hand begin to slide up her body to her chest. When he latched onto her breast another delicate sound came from Mina, betraying her desperate attempt to keep silent. The way he was touching her was not something she expected - she could feel the electricity in his touch, the primal voracity.
Her body tensed. “Master…” she breathed, too swept up in the sensation of his touch to form any other cohesive words.
“What is it, little Draculina…” he purred into her ear while firmly grasping her breast. “Are you going to scream?”
Mina pressed her knees together when she felt a dampness beginning to spread across the front of her panties. He knew what he was doing. “N-No…” she replied softly.
“Good,” Alucard said, grabbing onto her tie again. “I wouldn’t have let you anyway.”
The sudden sternness of his tone and slight friction around her neck sent a rush of pleasure through her. She wanted nothing more than to please her master, and right now he was completely focused on her - on her body. Her panties were soaking through already, increasingly made worse every time he squeezed her breast.
“I can smell the arousal radiating from your body already…” he said, twisting the tie once around his fist and pulling it taught. “Your secrets are no longer your own to keep.”
Mina clenched her teeth and slightly arched her back, desperately trying to keep her hips from rocking back and forth against him. But she was completely at his mercy, in both mind and body.
Her legs began to tremble as her master’s hand roughly lifted the edge of her skirt and began to snake up her thigh. When her hands instinctively shot out in protest, the giant hand clutching her tie let go and Alucard’s arm quickly looped through the crooks of her elbows and firmly held them behind her. With her arms effectively pinned between their bodies, she squirmed and felt her face flushing a bright pink.
Alucard fixed his gaze on the reflection of her glittering blue eyes, making sure she was observing, and continued his relentless exploration of her body. He brushed his fingertips across the front of her panties, and when he detected the dampness there the corner of his mouth pulled up into a crooked smirk.
“Just as I thought,” he said sweetly, tilting his head to one side.
Mina’s eyes grew large. He was looking at her as if they were playing chess this whole time and he had just said “checkmate.”
