The cold, chilly
night air was like death; Cold, mysterious, deadly. The storm
wasn't that far off but neither were they - don't ask me how I
knew, I could just feel it.
"Av, come on!
We gotta get out of here, they're closing in! And don't tell me
you..." Michael's voice drone on -
Michael was my partner and closest friend, in fact he was the
only friend I HAD and we went way back. He was right though, I
knew that they were close but I didn't exactly care yet alone the
fact that I was, well curious about them.
Mitchy, if you're so scared of running into them, then go, I'll
be fine," I replied sarcastically,
already knowing the answer, he wouldn't leave me behind no matter
what, we were in this together after all.
"You know I
can't do that Avery," it was never a good sing
when he used my full name, especially when we were on the job,
"besides I was only thinking of your safety but if you're so
interested with running into the damned then heck we'll stay
around a little longer." Michael replied sarcastically with a
smirk I knew all too well, a smirk that made my insides melt, a
smirk that hid everything from me.
they're here!" He whispered to me, trying
to get me to hide but I couldn't budge, I couldn't move, they
were here, the vampires were back in their coven.
what do we do?" I asked him anxious, wanting
to attack and yet having no weapon to do so.
this and whatever you do don't get yourself killed, please Avery
I'm begging you."He whispered, trying hard
not to let them hear us, handing me a long, sharp double blade
made from the toughest metal to slay any vampire, or immortal for
that matter. Michael gave me one more meaningful look - one that
I didn't know what it meant - before dropping off of the roof and
out of sight. I didn't hear him land but I knew that he had
already sneaked into the building. I looked over the edge of the
roof - saw that he wasn't in sight - before I slinked down to the
ground just as silently as Michael had. The second my feet were
on the ground, I placed my hands on the door ready to open it
when my "Slayer" sense's picked up a presence not too far behind
haven't seen a pretty face like you around 'ere recently, do you
KNOW it's dangerous around 'ere?" I turned around to find an
amazingly attractive boy who looked about the age of 18 - just
like me - who had black hair which hanged in his eyes, wearing
clothes that only the most hardcore Goth would wear and a stupid
smirk on his face as if he knew more than he was letting on. I
decided to play on as if I had no idea that just beyond these
doors were a vampire coven and Michael who I have no doubt was
almost done with slaying them.
I had no idea! What's dangerous in there? It just looks like an
old abandoned house." I replied trying to enforce
as much enthusiasm as I could, but he didn't seem to notice he just
kept wearing that stupid, annoying grin.
wouldn't believe me if I told you." He stated, the grin never
leaving his face, I moved my hands from the door and walked
closer towards him.
me," I tried to flirt with my
most flirtatious voice, enjoying it when I saw him swallow
knowing it worked.
again "There is a vampire coven beyond those doors but if you
want to get in, I'd suggest you use the side door they won't
notice you as much then." The grin re-appeared on his face
tempting me to slap it right off, which I did giving him a
playful smile and a wink and then turning away to walk around the
side of the building towards the side door he mentioned, I could
hear his silent footprints behind me but not his breath,
Vampire," I thought, I knew what I had
to do, kill him, he was a vampire no matter how good looking he
was. I forced a flirtatious smile onto my face and turned back
around to confront him.
"I'm sorry; I
didn't catch your name back there. I'm Avery and you
are?" I asked him as if I still
didn't know what he was.
Adam," He replied with a smile
stepping a little closer towards me as if to kiss me but I could
see the tips of his fangs showing on his blood red lips.
"You have a
pretty name Avery," He said with a smile taking
one step closer towards me, closing the distance between me and
him, putting his face right in mine.
"And if I may
add you smell amazing." He leaned in and kissed my
neck, now was the time to kill him before he killed me. I pulled
the blade that Michael gave to me before he disappeared and
plunged it into his shoulder blade letting it slip right into his
heart - the only sure way to kill a vampire. He pulled back away
from me and stared into my eyes completely shocked that I just
stabbed him, there was no smile or gin on his face now just that
completely stupid look of total surprise.
words?" I asked him, knowing he was
on his last breaths.
He managed to
choke out; it seemed to be the only words he could say at the end
of his life - typical, they were all the same. I looked deep into
his eyes, searching for the soul I knew wasn't there and
"Because I am
a Vampire Slayer," I replied, grinning as I
watched his un-dead body turn to ashes and drift away into the
cold, lifeless night.
