Bennet is a man who has a cruelness that he doesn’t hesitate to display with the man who loves him, Marlow. No matter how Bennet treats Marlow he always accepts it until Bennet sends him away.

When Bennet requests Marlow to return to him, he doesn’t hesitate. Bennet is not the same man Marlow remembers; he is looking older, and his once handsome face and his once perfect body are looking worn out.

Marlow is unaware of the fact that Bennet made a deal with a demon for a lifetime of beauty, but the cost is a visit from the demon once a year where he extracts Bennet’s lifeforce leaving him looking like death. His call to Marlow is for help, help to destroy the demon and get his lifeforce back.

A short story filled with explicit sex, murder and accepting love.
