Inhuman Monsters

Envy/Kimberly. PG-13. ~300 words. Noncon.
Greed will never leave him alone.

The bastards still annoyed the fuck right out of him. Damn army never changed, no matter what Archer said. Fully reinstated with a leash around his neck. The first chance he got, he’d blow the-

“What the hell?” Kimberly hissed, rounding the corner and stopping short.

Greed, supposedly very dead, relaxed under the light of a fizzling lamp. He lifted a hand, grinning his shark’s grin. “Hey.”

Greed responded with a shrug, pushed away from the lamppost and sauntered closer. Kimberly held his ground, muscles tense with the need to lash out or run. Neither option would accomplish much of anything.

He met Greed’s eyes, shock running through his system with a jolt when he didn’t see the familiar burning want in them. Abruptly, Greed’s grin vanished, mutated into a malicious, eager leer. A bright flash of light blinded Kimberly, made him stumble back.

Wild dark hair whipped in the wind. Recognition flashed through Kimberly like lightning, a second before a solid kick connected with his stomach, stealing his breath and knocking him flat.

Kimberly bucked and twisted, the fact of Greed’s death hardly a comfort at the moment. His shoulders slammed back against the ground and Envy’s arm pressed to his throat, just shy of cutting off his air.

“And I’m jealous,” he purred into Kimberly’s mouth.
