Burning torches throw strange shadows and orange light, they crackle quietly and give off the gentle scent of sandalwood. These torches, however, are incongruous with the computers and modern equipment that clutter one end of the steel walled room.
Red groans theatrically and extricates himself from Robin, leaving the other boy, no, he’s not a boy anymore, anyway, leaves him curled up on the floor and walks over to Slade, climbing into his lap.
“I’m hungry.” As a zombie, Red has become more confident around Slade. Before, when he was confronted, he put on a brave facade but he’d been more comfortable lurking in the shadows. Now, his fingers easily find the catches on Slade’s mask and undo them, dropping it to the ground with a clang. “Feed me.”
Slade grins and pulls Red closer, gloved hands pressing down hard on undead skin. Red squirms and moans, arching his neck wantonly, bruises from previous times litter it, mottling it deep purple on faded tan. Under the scraps of his uniform there are more, some fading, some brand new, making him groan each time Slade’s fingers dig into them. Red doesn’t feel fleeting touches, soft caresses, any more, only this pain, this heavy press of fingers into flesh.
The floor is cold against his back when Slade slams him onto it, but it is faint, fainter than it was just a few days ago. Even as Slade pushes strips of meat into his mouth with one hand, the other delving into his pants, Red wonders how long it will be until he can’t feel anything, how long it will be until Slade tires of him, how long until he never wakes up again.
He’s distracted from that train of thought when Robin joins them, and they end up sucking, biting, clawing their way to climax.
As Slade gets up and leaves the room, Red resumes his previous position, curls himself around Robin, watches as the younger, no not a boy, watches as he dozes.
The feeling of cold fades entirely, and Red knows it won’t be long now.
