Song Drabble Request by jeanenjolras
Howl by Florence + The Machine
'If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you’ve set it running free
Screaming in the dark, I howl when we’re apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart’
Monroe wasn’t sure exactly why he let Nick stick around in the beginning. Whither it was the novelty of meeting a creature he was never totally sure existed or the fact that Nick seemed so hapless that he was bound to get his head removed without Monroe’s help. Maybe it was a bit of both.
Then there was the excitement, the adrenaline rush the Blutbad hadn’t felt in years. Nick kept pulling him into his various escapades that usually included someone trying to kill one or both of them. Which really is not something a person should like. But Monroe was man enough to admit - at least to himself - he enjoyed the sense of danger in doing Grimm work.
It wasn’t until the night he saw a blade slice through the thin fabric of Nick’s shirt that Monroe realized there might be more to it than all of that. His mind went red with animistic fury as he slammed Nick’s attacker into the concrete wall of the abandon storage facility they were in. The man crumpled like paper onto the grime covered floor, limp and unconscious.
Ah, this is so lovely!
