The newest nightclub, Obsession, opened a few months ago and has made quite a splash. Getting into the place is difficult, and getting into the VIP section is even more so. Lately, authorities have noticed that some of the people who make it into the VIP section are acting strange. They come out experiencing a euphoric high, but it quickly starts to fade. As it fades, the victim starts to go through serious withdrawl symptoms, but the symptoms don't get better. The condition just keeps getting worse, while the victim insists that she needs to get back into the VIP lounge. She doesn't remember anything that happened, but she knows that getting in will fix everything. The problem is that nobody ever gets into the VIP lounge twice. Tox screens on the victims come back negative, but the police are certain something is up. They have sent an attractive young officer undercover with instructions to get invited to the VIP lounge and see what is happening.
The truth is unlike anything the young woman could imagine. There are no drugs. The club is owned by a being who looks like a handsome young man, but is actually a very old and powerful entity who feeds on the emotions of others. To do this, he generates a euphoric effect in his prey so that he can take in some of that bliss and sustain himself. The bliss lasts for a few hours, and then the victim crashes. They don't remember what happened, but they know they need more of what they had. The more time goes by, the more they would do anything for just a taste of what they had. The creature never feeds on the same person twice though, preferring fresh meals regularly. The undercover officer attracts his attention and he feeds on her. He isn't surprised when she tries to get back in looking for more, but he is surprised by her skills and strength. Perhaps there is value in keeping a human as a servant and slave, a regular source of nourishment in addition to what he takes in from the club.
