I sighed. It was a bad night for hunting. I sheathed my knife, with a sense of distain.
I'd been hoping for an exciting night. But I guess that one back fired on me. I dropped my head ad pulled up my hood. New York wasn't usually this quiet. But it may have been sheer coincedence. Except I didn't believe in coincedence.
I heard the slightest scuffing noise on the pavement behind me. I whipped around to investigate. In the path, was a person. They were tall and thin. Pale skin, and bright eyes. They had a casual air about them. It was a girl, that I could tell from her long hair.
"Funny how silly little humans like you just walk right into danger. Isn't it?" her voice was silky and smooth as honey. Her pale gold hair shimmered as she shifted her balance.
I sighed again, but not with sadness. I sighed with confidence, knowing I was going to win this fight.
"Well, it would be funny. Except I'm not human."
As she advanced on me, I smiled.
"Happy your going to die, huh?"
I yanked my knife out of it's sheath, and the vampire woman cursed.
I pulled back my arm to throw my knife, when somone caught my arm.
I twisted to face the person behind me, and was surprised to find one of my friends.
"Don't attack her," he murmered, "You'll only make it worse."
"Make what worse? Let me attack her!" I threw myself away, but he caught me again, and held me tight.
The vampire woman laughed. "Listen to your friend. He knows what he's doing like a good little hunter."
I turned to face him again. "What is she talking about, Max?"
He sighed. It was freaquent for hunters to sigh. I don't know why, it just was.
Max's face closed off from all emotion. Somthing hunters were very good at.
The vampire woman aswered for Max. "I hired him. Your friend is on our side now."
