Samantha walked down the dime road with her best friend Isabelle,
behind them the sun was setting to the point of where every thing
was a gray black, in the distance they heard wolfs howl.
"ignore it Issy, you know the woods around here are full of
wolfs," Samantha stated pushing Isabelle forward past the
abandoned gray storage unites that occupied the edge of their
small town, Isabelle glared nervously at the woods beside them
having second thoughts about camping outside the old buildings,
what she didn't know was that Samantha felt the same way. Why
am I doing this? Samantha
thought trying to ignore the wolfs cry's from somewhere in the
dark woods. Why did I let her talk me into this?
She tried to convince herself
that everything was going to be fine but there was something that
nagged at Samantha telling her that she should run but she shuck
off the feeling knowing that she had to do this for Isabelle
because she was moving tomorrow and this was their last night
together before Issy moved away from their small town to a big
city some where.
Slowly they walked across the
paved blacktop road both jumping at each new sound that broke
through the cold twilight air.
"Issy, you sure you want to do
this? I mean what if wolfs come out? There's no one around here
that would hear us if we called for help," Samantha stated
beginning to have second thoughts also as more wolfs seemed to
fill the early night air with their own unique cry, Isabelle
stopped and turned to face Samantha, her face a mask of
"don't-turn-around," she stated
looking to the woods behind Samantha who had been walking on
Isabelle's right until a few moments ago when she had skipped
backwards to her left so that her back was to the huge old woods
that surrounded their little town.
"why?" she asked Isabelle
thinking that she was pulling her lag, but when she whispered one
word Sam knew that she wasn't joking.
"run-" she whispered,
deep growling cut what ever she was about to say off next.
Samantha turned her head around slightly so she could see the 5
wolfs standing behind her baring their teeth threateningly at the
"Issy-" Sam started giving her
friend a look that she knew would get the next word across,
giving a slight nod Issy mouthed her thank you and quickly turned
around to sprint to the nearest stairway to the top of the
building. Turning to face the wolfs so that her friend could get
a head start, they all looked from her to her friend only giving
chase when Samantha turned to run after a few moments hoping that
Issy was some what close to the buildings, behind her the wolfs
gave chase growling nosily as the sprinted towards her.
"ah!" Isabelle tripped and skidded across the ground and crashed
painfully into one of the storage walls.
"Issy!" Samantha screamed running to her ignoring the fact they
were cornered with 2 walls on ether side of them and there was no
ladder to get to the top of ether one of them. "Issy! Issy can
you hear me?" she cried kneeling beside her knocked out friend,
behind her deep laughter sounded.
Samantha turned fearfully to the 5 men behind her each one with
long fingernails and canine teeth. "wh-who are you?" she
whispered moving so she was semi-sitting in front of her friend
protecting her from their view.
"deary," one of them stated talking a step forward, "the better
question would be what are we, and the answer would be-"
"werewolf's," a smooth voice
said echoing through the dark night, slowly a young man around
Samantha's age probably 18 or 19 with short dark red hair walked
up to the pack of men shaking some of their hands in a gangster
type of way.
"but-" Samantha was cut off by
one of the werewolf's kicking her to the side wall.
"shut up," he growled his voice
was thickly accented British, she gasped and coughed when her
stomach hit the stone wall and was glad that she had thrown her
arms in front of her face so her noise wouldn't be
"hey Eric, you want this one?"
the British guy asked pushing his foot into the small of her back
so that she was pushed tightly to the wall without a hope in the
world to escape.
"way not? I haven't eaten yet,"
the guy with red hair said sending a jolt up her spine as the
sound of his foot falls grew closer. Eaten? He's going
to eat me? She gasped when
she was given a final shove before Eric grabbed her trembling
shoulders kneeling down beside her, gently he pushed her hair
away from her neck and behind her ear then slowly brought his
mouth down to her earlobe and gently laid his teeth on the tender
skin, Samantha gasped when she felt his fangs slide out.
"please," she whispered
squeezing her eyes shut excepting her fate, "don't hurt me
friend," she whispered feeling his fangs slowly push down on her
earlobe and slowly sliding down to her neck. "please, do anything
to me but just don't hurt her," Samantha breathed feeling the
first tear fall, the pressure on her neck got lighter
but it was still there.
"anything?" Eric's smooth voice asked,
Samantha nodded, "swear it unto your own life that your blood is
mine as long as your friend I protected," he
"i swear on my life that my blood is yours
as long as she is protected," Samantha choked out knowing that
the vampire was smiling.
"wolfs, leave that girl be," he spoke
standing, "her blood is now forbidden property,"
"but all the vamps get the good ones!" one
of them complained.
"that's because we work for them," Eric
stated ignoring Samantha's attempted to stand but was now
kneeling in a half hunch and was coughing
"then can we have that one?" the British one
asked taking a step forward at an attempt to grab her but Eric
"she is now under my protection, you touch
her and I'll kill you," he stated grabbing the other guys hand
and bending it backwards until he howled in pain, "that goes for
all of you, so one more step and I'll show you why my race is in
charge," he growled sending a death glare at the pack of men
around him standing my Samantha's side and putting his arms
behind him so they couldn't see her that well. "understand?" he
growled, the werewolf's gave slight nods before turning to leave,
Eric watched them all dissatisfied into the woods and didn't turn
his back to them until he was satisfied that they were
"Issy," Samantha whispered giving another
brutal cough, Eric dropped down beside her helping her sit, "is
she-ok?" she choked out looking into the vampires deep red eyes,
he nodded while slowly laying his hand on her check and gently
brushed the light brown hair away from her dark blue eyes.
Relived at the good news Samantha allowed the tears she had been
holding back to escape knowing that they would
"don't cry, your safe now," he whispered
whipping away some of her tears, "shhhh. . ." he whispered
pulling her into a soft hug only pushing her back when he
realized that she was shivering from the cold fall
"I'm sorry," Samantha whispered as Eric
pulled his jacket around her quivering body, he shook his head
"no, from now on I'm responsible for your
health and safety because-" he started sliding his arm under her
lag and his other one around her waist then picked her up bridal
style allowing her to wrap her arms around his neck and resting
her head against his chest, "-from now on I own your life and
your body and there really isn't anything you can do about it,"
he stated carrying her away into the dark woods where she was
going to spend the rest of her life with him
