[Daybreakers] beneath my skin (I cannot run away) [Edward/Frankie]  
beneath my skin (I cannot run away);
Daybreakers Fic: Edward/Frankie;
PG/13: incest; 355words; 
a/n: I couldn't help myself. I just saw the movie and... don't judge me! XD 
you don't have to have seen the movie to read this. It's pretty self explanitory. also, not spoilery.
unless you're a spoiler-phobe, of course. inwhich case I don't know what classifies as a spoiler. hmmm.

His brother is a warm comfort pressed up against his side as they lie, sated and content, in a tangle of limbs upon his bed. Frankie’s head rests upon his chest, listening to the thump-thumping of his heartbeat, his fingers twitching out the staccato rhythm seemingly without consciousness.

“I’m thinking of turning,” Frankie says and Edward tightens his arms, his heart- and Frankie’s fingers- stilling for the fraction of a second it takes him to process his brother’s words.

“Don’t,” he whispers, pressing his face into the mop of Frankie’s hair. “Don’t you dare.”

He feels his brother’s smile as he turns his face against his chest, lips curving up against his flesh even as he begins pressing kisses down the length of his torso; fingers, nimble and swift, slipping below the rumpled sheets covering whatever modesty they still have with each other.

Frankie doesn’t mention it again.

And Edward doesn’t dare to bring it up. Content, instead, to fall into the oblivion his brother provides him with.

He looks at his brother but he does not see his brother. He sees a stranger standing in the doorway to his bedroom, a stranger with a crew-cut and yellow eyes and the glow of a predatory creature within range of its prey.

He sees disappointment, not his little brother. He sees betrayal, not his Frankie. He sees his heart breaking before his eyes. He feels his heart breaking. It is one of the last things he feels; the loudest echo of feeling he’ll remember. Even the fear of the moment fades as the beat of his heart slows itself to a stuttering pause... thump... pause... thump... stop.

The rush of blood in his ears drags itself to a sluggish crawl before it too ceases to carry life through his twitching, turning body. He never wanted this. Never wanted this life. Not even for Frankie.

"I got you, Ed." Frankie whispers against his ear, arms tight and protective around him now. "I won't ever let you go."

Edward can only close his eyes to his brother’s words and wonder why they sound more threatening than a comforting.

Like it! I can definitely see Frankie being his selfish self and wanting Ed to be with him forever. Frankie's last line was like whoa!

thank you!

Frankie did come across as being very selfish and possessive over his brother, I'm just glad I managed to show that side of him in this piece. :)

Thanks for reading!

Hey there!

Actually I'm not into the whole slash-thing, buhuut, I really like this one! :) Frankie is such a selfish bastard, poor Edward. :(

PS: You are a fan of Supernatural! EEEEEEEEEE!! Awesome! Me too, me too! :D Did you see the latest episode? THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN! :D:D

PPS: It's so hard to find any Daybreakers fanfics. :( Will you write more? *big puppy eyes*

Well thank you very much for reading this :) especially with your not being into slash! I'm glad it worked for you. I'm glad Frankie managed to redeem himself towards the end, but I don't think that can really excuse him for having done that to Edward in the first place.

PS. I am indeed! PUDDING! XD heh. I enjoyed the new episode immensly. So glad to have it back in my life, the withdrawal was just terrible! haha.

PPS. I will see what I can do, but no promises! :) if I do write anymore it is likely to be either slash or gen though, I hope that wouldn't put you off too much?

Thank you for the feedback :) it's really appreciated!

thank you very much, darling! :) I'm glad you enjoyed this wee piece!

Yeah, the movie was flawed in parts, but on a whole I rather enjoyed it, especially "the dalton cest vibes" as you say! hehe.
