Taking a Walk

The streets of New York at night were fascinating. Thousands of people were up, walking about, each the result of innumerable choices. It was child's play for kindred to hide within these masses. Usually, their presence was a sort of comfort to Jeremy. He was used to people, to them being around. Just sitting and watching provided solace, usually.
But not tonight.
Tonight, he was not idly watching for curiousity's sake. Tonight, he was hunting.
And it was for an unprecedented reason, too. Usually, he went on the prowl because he was very hungry. Drinking blood was still an act he was not entirely comfortable with. One of the reasons he took up an interest in the Coils of Blood was to reduce the necessity for feeding. (The other one was to reduce the necessity for breaks in his work.)
However, this time, things were different. This time, he was out to hunt for the sake of hunting itself.
Being a Gangrel encompasses many things. Among them, the fact that Gangrel are closer to their Beasts than other Kindred.
For two nights, the Dragon had followed someon until he could have fed, but stopped before he engaged his prey. The acticity roused his Beast, and increasingly, he grew more and more attuned to it.
This time, he wanted to experience all of the thrill, and to do so, he picked out a semi-public area.
Somewhere you could easily disappear into an alley. Usually, this took place around here so people could exchange money for drugs.
And a high is what Jeremy offered, after all. He wore ill-fitting jeans and a too-large-hoodie, to fit in better with the crowd or at least draw less attention than in his brown suit or lab coat.
Jeremy waited. Patiently. Making sweet promises of blood to his Beast. Smiling.

The city went quiet around the Gangrel and he was able to pick out a target from the crowd. A healthy looking young man dressed in jeans and t-shirt slipped into an alley, a lonesome alley covered from the street.

Jeremy followed the young man, sneaking up on him until he is close enough to bite.

The boy had no chance. Jeremy overwhelmed him quickly, lead by an instinct he hadn't felt this strongly since ages ago, and sated his thirst. Red sweetness came trickling at first, then freely flowing.
He took notice of any nuance he could, to not get lost in the high. A strong beat pulled through his whole body, and liquid lightning entered his veins. Soon, a faint echo from deep within responded to the ever weaker-beating pulsating sensation, one growing as the other waxes...
He remembered to stop in time (although his Beast screamed to keep going) and close the wounds.
Ahhh. Blood. It makes you feel so... alive...
The old man moved easily, quickly, with springs in his legs. He felt invigorated, and it showed on his face, a bright, happy smile.
He set the boy down carefully, cleaned any traces that were left (sweet lightning on his lips, crimson red and faint music within) and stepped out of the alley, soon vanishing into a crowd.

He had never been a hunter.
But now, he was Gangrel.
