Chapter 2: Not A Myth
When I woke up the next morning, I looked over and there was a note. I picked it up and read the perfect handwriting.
My Dearest Alice,
My sweetheart, I had to leave. I know you hate that I'm gone and you probably hate me in general but I do not plan on returning until a couple months. But when I come back a few months from now, It will be to retrieve my son from you. My sweetheart, I apologize for doing this to you. I will owe you an explanation once we meet again.
I was confused beyond belief. What does he mean 'to retrieve his son'? A violent cramp was in my stomach. I cried out in pain and ran to the bathroom. I lifted the toilet seat and unleashed all the stomach acid. My eyes watered as it felt like everything was spilling out of me. When I felt like i was done, I flushed the toilet and leaned against the wall trying calm down my breaths. What the hell was wrong with me? I took a deep breath and got off of the floor. I washed my mouth out and then went back and laid down in my bed. I read the note repeatedly and felt another wave of nausia. I froze in place when I think I realized what he meant when he said 'retrieve his son'. My eyes grew wide and my heart became slower. I slowly placed the note down and looked down at my stomach. I lifted my shirt and touched my stomach. Was I pregnant? Already? No. I couldn't be. Maybe this was some sick joke. My mind changed when I felt more throw up come up.
This was impossible. I felt my stomach contract repeatedly and shocks of pain going through my body. There was now throw up on the floor beside my bed. This wasn't happening. I'm not pregnant. I just have food poisoning. That will be a more logical explanation. More logical than pregnancy.
But just to make sure, I picked up a pregnancy test and took it. It didn't say anything. It didn't say negative or positive. I thought maybe that it meant it was broken. I bought two others. One of them were a different kind and neither of them said negative or positive. I was done. I'm not buying any more. I just went to the doctor and he said that there were changes going on in my body but he didn't tell me rather or not I was pregnant.
When I got home, my door was half opened. I slowed my steps toward the front door. I bit my and went into my car and grabbed my baseball bat from my trunk. Somebody was about to get their ass kicked. I kicked it open and walked in slowly. I closed it and looked around. Footsteps were in my kitchen. I can hear them. I slowly walked in the kitchen to see a tall man leaning against my counter staring at me as if he was expecting something. I didn't scream. "Um. What the hell are you doing in my house?" I asked.
"Don't be afraid. Please. I just want to talk to you." He said. "You couldn't wait outside? You had to break into my house?" I asked. He shrugged. I sighed. Then as I looked at the man's features,I realized how much he looked like Darius.
"Yes. I know." He said. I narrowed my eyes as he stared at me. "Excuse me?" I asked. He nodded once. "I'm Darius's brother. My name is Cyan." I placed the bat down and then folded my arms in front of me. "What do you want?" I asked. He looked down at the floor. He took a deep breath. "I have to ask you something personal, Alice."
"How did you know my name?" I asked shocked. He took another deep breath. "My brother has been watching you alot lately and he found out alot of information about you before you two even met eachother. "What?" He nodded. "I just need to know what happened here three days ago. I know he came in this house because I can smell his scent in your bedroom."
I looked down. My cheeks were red. Cyan sucked in a breath. He looked scared. "Okay, Alice. Tell me honestly. Have you been having pregnancy symptoms?" I hesitated a little deciding rather or not it was his business but he looked concerned so I nodded.
"You have to get rid of it." He said suddenly in front of me. "What? I mean I don't even know if it's a hundred percent true. If I was pregnant, I wouldn't be having the symptoms this early and it's my choice rather or not I want to keep it." I said.
"No. You don't understand." He said. He suddenly opened his mouth and I saw two sharp teeth in front of his kanine teeth. They were big and sharp. His eyes turned the color of blood. My eyes widened as I stepped back from him. "Get out of my house!" I yelled. I ran towards the door but he was there within seconds. "Not until you listen to me."
I knew what he was. I mean I think I knew what he was. "Get out!" I yelled. He shook his head. "Listen to me, Alice. If you don't want me to hurt you, you have to listen to me." I stayed calm then anxious of what he wanted to tell me. "My brother is a vampire. I am a vampire. And what is inside you is a half vampire and it's very dangerous. If you want want to live, you have to get it out of you." He said. I felt my heart beat. This was not happening. It was not happening. This was a nightmare.
