"Mom," I called, walking out of food city into the dark environment. The parking lot was not surprisingly empty. Its 8:00pm and many people don't shop after dark, so that's when we do. It's always less crowded when the sun goes down. No one likes the dark.
My red wavy hair is dangling over my right shoulder, bouncing off my jean jacket. It's shockingly cold. I know its late, but lately the weather has been at least 70 degrees at night, hitting the 90's during the day. My jacket only goes past my breast, stopping right afterwards so I'm freezing the rest of my body off. The rest of the way down I have a tight black tank-top on and jean shorts that are few inches above my knees. My feet are cold also, stupid little me wanted to wear a pair of black flip-flops. I should have looked at the weather bug on my computer before leaving. I'm not as smart as my mom. She wore long light jeans and a long purple sweater made of cotton. She wore fur boots and white gloves. If only I thought like her, I wouldn't be freezing now.
The sky must be covered with dark clouds because the stars are not showing at all. The mood is, but the stars, its like they all died. And the air, not just cold, but there's a heaviness to it. It feels like there's going to be a huge storm on the way, bringing a lot of rain. The cold breeze carries messages of the soon to be rain shower. The smell in the air is musky. It also smells like gas and breads. Those do not go together. They are not a good scent together. I scrunched my nose, trying to get rid of the smell. I can't wait to get home and burn a vanilla incense.
I walked on the cement parking lot, seeing only my car in the distance because of the moon's dull light reflecting off the top of it in a beautiful way, as the roof of the car sparkled. Our black SUV is always polished to its best shine. We don't want to drive in a dirty rusty car. Who does? I continued walking with the two plastic bags in my hands full of food towards the car. It looked dark. No light anywhere. That's strange. My mom usually has the lights on. Shes very careful about being alone in the dark. I am also. My experiences with the darkness made me. There are things out there. Vampyres, you know. Things you couldn't imagine. Their not just tall-tales. Not even close. I found that out in a frightening way.
My mom always says, "You never know whats in the darkness Rain, be careful and keep at least one light on at all times." What she doesn't know is, I do know what lingers in the dark. Last year was where it all began. Where everything changed. All because of one fight I got involved with. One fight that I shouldn't have even acknowledged. Creatures I shouldn't even believe in. It was horrible. It was dark. It-, I shook my head to fight the memories off, locking them behind a black door in my mind, not letting them surface.
I got closer to the car, seeing no movement made me suddenly panic. Thinking the worse, I sped up, jogging towards the car. I opened my door, lighting up the car. My moms door was open and her body was laying on the ground out of the car. I dropped the bags with no hesitation, and ran around the car to her. She laid their motionless. Her skin was extremely pale and her lips a light pink color. Her veins bright and noticeable. Her eyes open but drained of life. I put my head down to her lips, not hearing any breathing. Frantic, I pushed her brown curly hair from her neck and blindly put my fingers on her neck, looking for a heartbeat, but only found a weird warm liquid.
I yanked my hand back and saw red smeared on my finger tips."Oh my god!" I yelled. I pushed her brown curly hair back and searched for a cut on her throat. Hoped for one. But I only found what I dreaded. Two small holes. My heart started to panic even more. I looked around frantically for her predator. No, they havent. They couldn't have found me. I made sure it was impossible for them to find me. I stood up and looked everywhere. I turned towards the car and saw a piece of paper folded and shoved into the steering wheel. I bent forward quickly, grabbing it between my fingers. I pulled it out and brought it outside. I stood next to my mother's body shakily and opened it urgently.
I peeked at her dead, horrified face before reading. In big black letters it read:
We found you. You could run and you did, but we found you. Now look what happened. Shes dead because of you. You shouldn't have tried getting out of it. Bad, bad mistake. I'm here for revenge now that I finally found you and she is just the beginning. We'll see you soon, and when we do, you better be on your knees begging for mercy that I will not give you.
Rain Somers, you officially called war, I'm going to rip the necks of everyone you care about. You know whats great about that? I don't need you to help me with that. When I'm finished, I'm going to hunt you down and make you suffer the coincidence of your choices.
At the end was a small circle of blood. Their signature. They found me some how. They killed my mother. They're pissed. How could I be so stupid, thinking I could get away with this? What am I going to do?! I took out my phone and started dialing 911 frantically. I should be crying. My mom was just murdered. But I'm not. I'm scared. Im scared that they found me.
A woman voice answered, asking what my emergency was.
"My mom was murdered in food-city parking lot!" I told her as my throat tightened up.
"Just stay where you are," she said quickly. "Help will be on its way,"
I hung up and paced around. "Oh my god. What am I going to do?" The tears finally arrived along with the heartache I have waited for. My eyes started to burn as my head throbbed. One tear from my right eye fell down, making my cheeks redden. I started breathing in and out slowly. I never thought this would happen. I had a good chance at getting away with this, but at the same time, there was a chance of me getting caught.
I looked down at her body and let out an angry cry. I kicked the car angrily and yelled. I slapped the car growling loudly right afterward. I heard something behind me and spun around, wiping any tears off of my face. A guy stood behind me. Short brown hair and dark brown eyes. He wore a white T-shirt and dark jeans that showed how muscular he was. His skin was tan but not too tan. His appearance shocked me.
"Rain?" his voice cracked. He looked down and saw my moms dead body. His face twisted up in agony.
"Vampyres," I said letting more tears fall. "Refe, their back! They killed my mom!" I cried.
"Rain!" he said taking me into a warm hug.
"They found me Refe!" I sobbed. "They killed her. The killed her. Th-"
"Shh," he whispered hugging me tightly. "Shh, Rain, I'm so sorry!"
"How did they find me?!" I asked sucking in his smell of pine trees and fire.
"I don't know. I never thought they would!" he said seriously.
"Refe, she's gone," I cried. "Why-"
"Don't beat yourself up Rain," he whispered quietly. "Don't hun,"
"Refe!" I cried, burying my face deep into his shoulder.
"We need to go," he said pulling me away a little and looking directly into my eyes. "Come on,"
"I can't leave her!" I cried running reaching for her body. He grabbed me around my waist and pulled me away. "Refe, I can't! I can't!"
"Come on!" he said, taking my hand and pulling me away. I turn and ran with him, knowing it was the only thing I could do. My vision started going blurry but I didn't stop running. I never have and look where running away got me. Where it got my mom. "Speed up," he ordered.
"I'm running as fast as I can!" I cried. Instantly, he flipped me into his arms and ran as fast as he could. Given the chance, I buried my face into his shoulder again and continued to cry.
"You have to be strong now Rain!" he yelled. "You know that! We have to!" I lifted my head to look back but he shouted before I could. "Don't look back,"
I stared forward as things went past us in a fast motion. My eyes burned and my throat felt dry. I took deep breaths to calm myself down, trying to calm my nerves down.
"Where are you going?!" I questioned quietly, as a single tear from my left eye trickled down my cheek.
"Canx," he said quickly. To you, that's just a random word, to me, its safety. The only place I can go and not be harmed. To me, it's where I should have been all along. Where my mother should have been.
"Its my fault!" I cried to myself. "Its all my fault,"
"No, Rain, don't think like that," Refe begged quietly.
"If I just stayed to my word. Hell, if I just did what I was supposed to," I whispered.
"Rain, stop!" he ordered.
"If only I thought of her before me!" I cried. "I knew something like this could have happened!"
"Honey, please don't," Refe whispered quietly.
"If I only did everything!" I yelled loudly. "If only I thought for a dame second! She wouldn't be dead if I had!"
"Rain!" he yelled, dropping me on my feet and grabbing my shoulders in a hard grip. He stared at me hard and serious. "This is not your fault. Don't you dare blame yourself. You had no idea this was going to happen. Wipe those tears and calm down," He looked at me with intense eyes and every word he said came out in a growl.
"But it is my fault," I whispered quietly, as the tears kept coming. "And you know it,"
"Rain," he said softly as his grips loosened. "Rain," he looked at me, not knowing what to say. He looked torn and beaten. He didn't know what to say, I could tell. He looked pained. He knows the truth just as well as I do. Without another word, he pulled me into another hug. "I'm so sorry Rain," he whispered quietly."I am so sorry. I thought everything would be fine," He meant it. Every word had pain and agony in it. Every letter was aching his heart to pronounce. He held me in a tight embrace. He kissed the side of my head, being the friend he has always been. Ever since we met the day it all started. When all this started. "But listen to me," he whispered pulling back and looking me in the eyes again. "You, you need to hold on for me. We have to go because they're here. Rain, its important that we leave!"
"It's too late for that," a voice grumbled behind us. My heart sped up as I froze in fear. Refe did the same. I know that voice. I know that voice too well. "You guys can't run this time," it growled. "I'm not going to allow it,"
