I ran out of the library to the door and opened it. I instantly shut it and yelled "Shane! We have a major problem!" He rushed to me and was there in a second.
"Whats the matter?" Alex asked from the stairs.
"Nothing is wrong but Alex I need you to stay in your room!" Shane said.
"Don't ask questions just do it." She nodded and went to her room. "What is it?" He asked me.
"Its who is at the front door." Shane opened the door.
"Dane?" He asked.
"Yes. I need to speak to you about the deal."
"Your not welcome here and you know that and yet you come."
"I need to speak to you." Shane opened the door and Dane walked in.
"Matt watch over things I will be in the library with him." I nodded and followed orders. First off I went to find Adrian and Blake.
I led him to the library and we went inside. Blake and Adrian had already left. He sat in a chair as did I. "What is it Dane?" I asked coldly.
"Its about the princess."
"I figured that much."
"Now now lets not quarrel. Anyway the end of the school year is coming near and graduation is in reach. The deal is off the minute she graduates. We cannot wait much longer after that."
"I know all of this already! If you came to say this then you've wasted your time." I growled. He chuckled.
"Not much patience have we? That is not what I came to say. She does not know correct?"
"When do you plan to tell her?"
"Well she needs to know so that she can be on her guard. Is it true that you like her? Love her? The famous Shane loves a girl and not just any girl the destined princess of mortals? The famous Shane who loves none? The one who killed his own family? Are you going to end up killing her too because you love her?" Memories flooded back to me. I could hear the screaming in my head. I could see all of the blood.
"SHUT UP! This is my territory remember! I could easily kill you right here and now!"
"Very true. I apologize."" I was on my feet now breathing heavily. "You do know that if your other enemies find out that you love her that she will be in even greater danger than she is now?"
"Yes. I know that very well! Is there anything else that you want!?"
"No. I will show myself out now." He got up and left. The still fresh memories consumed me and I fell to the floor unconscious.
I saw Dane leave so I went into the library to talk to Shane. I found him collapsed on the floor. Oh no! Not again! This hasn't happened for a while. "Blake!" I yelled as I picked him off of the floor. Blake and Adrian came into the room.
"What is the matter? Oh." Blake said. He helped me carry Shane upstairs. As we were passing Alex's door it opened nearly hitting Shane.
"Oh! Whats wrong with him!"
"Nothing serious really. He's just unconscious." Blake replied.
"What happened?!" We entered his room and laid him on his bed.
"I'm not sure. He was talking with Dane in the library." I explained to Blake and Adrian even though Alex had no idea what was going on.
"I want answers now!" She said banging the wall with her hand.
"Alright Alex calm down." Adrian said as he pushed her onto the bed next to where he lay.
"He sometimes gets like this. Less frequently now though. Not long ago he had a horrible experience. He gets like this when he gets consumed in a memory. His body goes limp and he is unresponsive to the world until his memory is over or until.........I don't know but he's always woken up before this so I'm sure he'll be fine." I finished. She looked at him worried. We left her alone with him.
The hunger was unbearable though I tried to fight it. Yesterday I was turned into a vampire and I hadn't quite gotten hang of anything yet. The only one who knew was Matt. The hunger overpowered me and I lost it. Kailey bounded into the room happily with a piece of paper in her hand. I felt my fangs slide down. "Shaney! Wook at the picture I dwew, wook!" (Shaney look at the picture I drew, look!) I couldn't control myself. Not with her small heart pulsing blood. I could hear it. "Shaney? What da mattur?" (Shaney? Whats the matter?) I lunged at her. She screamed as I viciously bit her neck. Her screaming turned into gurgling and soon stopped. I let her limp body fall as my parents ran into the room. I was drenched in blood and I was in a frenzy.
"Shane! You-your one of them! Your a vampire!" My mother screamed. I pounced on my father and ripped out him neck. Blood spurted all over me and I quickly sucked the remaining blood. My mother was screaming and crying the whole time. I turned to her in annoyance and tore open her throat with my fangs. I hungrily drunk her dry as I had with my sister and father. I let her limp body fall to the floor with a loud thump! My senses came back and I realized what happened. I was drenched in their blood and it was also everywhere. I fell to the ground and started to cry. How could I do this!? How!? The front door opened and I heard a sharp gasp. Somebody touched my shoulder and I turned sharply to find Matt standing above me.
"Shane. What did you-" He pulled me to my feet and hugged me briefly. I was still sobbing as I looked at their bodies. Kailey had a look of fright and shock. My dad had a look of hate and pain. My mom looked scared and sad. I killed them. I tore their throats open. I drank their blood.
"Matt if this is what happens when I love people then I will never love again."
"Shane it was an accident. Don't say things like that." Suddenly outside I heard police cars and ambulances.
I woke up to voices. "Well at least he stopped screaming." It was Adrian. I slowly opened my eyes.
"He's awake. Everybody out." Matt said. Adrian, Blake and Matt left leaving me with Alex. She was sitting on my bed next to me. My throat felt like it was on fire. What was worse though is that I felt that uncontrollable hunger starting to grow quickly in the pit of my stomach.
"Alex you have to get out of here right now! If you don't I'll accidentally kill you!" "Is it because you need to feed?" I nodded and she handed me a glass. I could smell the familiar scent and I hungrily gulped it down.
"Do you have anymore?" I breathed. She handed me another one. I gulped that one down too. Satisfied for now I fell back onto my pillows.
"How do you feel?" She asked me.
"Horrible. My throat feels like its on fire."
"I bet. You were screaming for three days non stop."
"Have I been out that long?"
"Four days." I groaned. "Will you tell me about it?" I just looked at her.
"You wouldn't want to know. Anyway Alex you and me won't work out."
"What!? Why? I do want to know! No matter how horrible it is!" I sighed and started my story.
