Chapter 7: Are they getting suspicious?
I got up, got in the shower, and got dressed the next morning. As I went downstairs, Cyan glanced at me for only half a second before turning back to getting something out of the refrigerator. I sighed. "Look, I’m sorry for saying what I said. It was very rude and untrue. You’re not a monster, Cyan." I said. He turned with an apologetic smile on his face. "I know you didn’t mean it. I forgive you." I smiled and sat at the kitchen table. "I just warmed up a cup of blood. Want it?" He asked. I nodded and he slid it on the table with extreme force and I caught it seconds before it was going to slide off the table.
I placed it to my lips and swallowed the thick, sweet dark red liquid. It definitely settled my hunger and made me crave more. I automatically thought back to how good Alessa’s blood was. I have to get that out of my mind.
"I never got to ask you how school was yesterday." I shrugged. "Guess what my first class happens to be?" He turned to look at me as an answer.
"Mythology." I answered. He laughed. "And how’s that working for you?" I shrugged. "Interesting. Interesting that they still think that vampires don’t exist."
"Not all humans can be mythology experts."
"Obviously." I wasn’t ashamed of who I was. I never was. Cyan told me that I was the only hybrid vampire he knew.
I finished my blood and then grabbed my book bag and walked outside. It was dark and cloudy. As I stepped onto the sidewalk, Kenny was walking near me. "Hey, why do you look so tired?" I asked. Kenny had dark circles under his eyes and his eyes were heavy lidded. "Two words. My mom. She’s been lecturing me constantly on getting good grades this year. All just because I got a detention yesterday."
I looked at him wide-eyed. "You got a detention on the first day of school? Are you serious?" I asked.
"In my defense, Kayla Philips kissed me first. Is it even possible to get a detention for kissing a girl in the hallway?" Kenny asked.
"Do you have a detention today?" He nodded. "There’s your answer." He sighed as we walked down the street to the school. "If I tell you something, can you promise me you’ll keep it a secret?"
"I keep all of your secrets. Even the major one."He reminded me. He was right. He kept the one secret that meant the most to me for over five years. So I knew I could trust him with any secret.
"I bit Alessa yesterday." He stopped walking and looked at me with horror in his eyes."You did WHAT?!" Thanks for keeping quiet about it.
"I didn't mean to. I was kissing her and then I was suddenly biting her. It came out of no where. I had to compel her for her to forget."
Kenny shook his head. "Wow. That's pretty messed up, Dalton."
"Tell me about it."
As we approached the school, I was suddenly pushed to the ground. I fell onto my stomach. I got to my knees and back up to see Taylor Hinges glaring at me.
"Hey, what is your problem?!" Kenny asked pushing Taylor. Taylor stumbled back slightly.
"Tell your friend to stay away from Alessa. She's still my girlfriend." He said. Kenny laughed. "Oh really? So why was she kissing Dalton in the hallway yesterday?" Taylor growled and stomped towards Kenny. Before he could even blink, Kenny pulled his fist back and punched Taylor in the eye. Taylor dropped to the floor holding his eye and screaming profanities.
"That's what happens when you mess with my best friend. Sorry dude." Kenny said looking down at Taylor. I sighed as Kenny helped me up to my feet. "Are you okay?" He asked. I nodded and brushed myself off. "Yeah. I've been going through this since second grade. It isn't new."
Me and Kenny went into the building and went to my locker. I opened it. "Thanks for helping me, Kenny." I said. He smiled. "No problem. I've got your back. You know that." I smiled back and stuffed my book bag into my locker.
"You got mythology first, right?" I nodded. He smiled. "Yeah go learn about fake werewolves and vampires." I glared at him and he grinned and turned around to walk down the other side of the hallway. I suddenly felt someone brush the back of neck. I turned and smiled as I saw Alessa smiling up at me. "Hey." She whispered.
"Hey. I missed you." She hugged me tightly. "I missed you too. Ready for the second day?" I shook my head. She shrugged. "Oh well." I chuckled and grabbed my journal and a pen. "Have no fun in History." I said.
"Have all your fun in mythology." I pressed my lips over hers for a second. We stared at eachother for a moment and kissed again, this time longer and slightly more agressive. I pulled away just in time. My fangs were planning on coming out.
"See you later." I said. "Bye." she said as she turned. I watched her walk away. I quickly got into class as the bell rang. As I got in, the girl that was sitting next to me yesterday was sitting by my empty desk again. I walked in and sat down.
The word 'Vampires' was on the board. I gulped and sanked down in my seat, Mr. DeLoric looked at me before underlining the word on the board.
"Vampires." He said. He slowly paced back and forth. "What do you all know about vampires?" Mr. DeLoric asked.
The girl next to me raised her hand. "Yes, Alison Aubrey. Right?" She nodded. Her dark jeans were ripped and she had black boots over them and a black short sleeved shirt on. She had on black and silver neckalaces and her hair was curly running down her lower back. Alison Aubrey.
"They take joy in drinking blood." She said. Mr. DeLoric nodded. "That.....is more than a hundred percent true. Vampires like blood. What else?" He asked. His eyes automatically went to me as if I had my hand raised. "Dalton?" He asked. I sighed and looked over at Alison as she looked back at me. "Uh.......they have fangs?" It sounded more like a question. Mr. DeLoric smiled. "Yes. Dalton. They do. Most people think that they have vampire fangs. Those two teeth that are on both sides of their mouth that look sharper than the rest.. People think that the Kanine teeth is actually vampire fangs."
"Their not. That's just the way people are born." Alison said. Mr. DeLoric smiled. "You're very smart, Alison. You seem very interested in vampires." He said.
"I know." She responded. A small smile played on Mr. DeLoric's lips. "What else do we know about vampires?" He asked. He looked around the room. A girl raised her hand. "Yes?"
"They can read minds." I looked back at her. How did she know that?
I looked back at Mr. DeLoric who also looked shocked. Everyone in the room was staring at her. "What? Edward could in Twilight." I let out a sigh of relief. Mr. DeLoric did the same. Why did he get so tense? Was he.....?
"Not....all vampires can do such a thing. Although some can." He sat at his desk. I looked over at Alison and her elbow was resting on her desk and she was resting her chin on her hand. Her hand was on her cheek. Her fingers nails contained of black nail polish. I couldn't help but look at her pale skin and perfect features.
"Do you think they're real?" Alison asked. Mr. DeLoric shrugged. "Who knows? There can easily be a vampire in here with us right now." His eyes flickered between the students. But they lingered on me the longest. Jesus please get me out of here.
