I lay on my bed listening to the frogs sing to each other. My
window is cracked for the cool breeze to to enter. My bed and
comforter hug me with such softness against my bare skin. I close
my eyes, ready for dreams to take over me. The breeze feels so
good against my warm face. Smells of the magnolia bush outside
mingle with the smells of febreez and strawberry incense in my
room. I breathed deeply, and gagged.
The smell of rot and decay invade my senses. I opened my eyes to see a dark figure next to the window. It's eyes gleam yellow like amber stones. My body is paralyzed and a bitter copper taste fills my mouth from the sudden fear. The figure, as if gliding, moves to the side of my bed. The stench follows it and the once nice breeze blows the smell right towards me. The thing leans down close to my face. The awful smell is almost overpowering now.
It's a man. I looked into his eyes. A man with beautiful amber eyes. Those eyes. So warm and comforting. They seem to stare straight into my soul. My body stops trembling and goes slack. He leas closer and rests his cheek against mine. Cold against hot. The mans head lowers and brushes against my jaw while his hand cradles the other side of my face. Automatically my hand rests itself on top his. He nuzzles my neck and licks a spot before piercing the skin with sharp teeth.
Like needles they push into the soft skin with a faint pop. Ecstasy ripples through my body. My back arches, responding the instant bliss. As I hear him take his first gulp my hand raises to hold the back of his neck. And then he stiffens. He lifts his head to reveal red tinted eyes, filled with fear. Dark blue liquid dribbles from the corner of his mouth and down his chin. My blood.his. He nuzzles my neck and licks a spot before piercing the skin with sharp teeth.

Dark blue liquid dribbles from the corner of his mouth and down his chin. My blood."What-wha-," he stutters
"What am I?"I ask for him.
My hands lock onto his hand and the back of his head.
He struggles but cannot get away. They never do. "I am your
predator. You are so lucky as to be my prey. I am Kira, and the
only one of my kind." I pull him closer to me. He struggles much
harder now, which only makes me more excited. I smile wide to
expose four silver fangs. Two of which were ridged for ripping
I pulled the fighting man closer yet. His ear is next to my mouth. "I may look, smell, and feel like a human, but that is a mistake, vampire. One that you will not live long enough to regret. Your friends outside will learn this also, " I whispered into his ear. Screeching and howling erupted outside the window and faded as they retreated. "Oh my, they have abandoned you. Not good friends really if you ask me. No worries though. I will find them soon enough. Right now, I'm ready to eat," I laughed as the man furiously tried to get away, screeching and howling.
I was even more excited as he did this and my mouth clamped down hard into his tough cold flesh. The vampire beside himself with pain, bit my shoulder several times. In return I shook my head, ripping deeper into his throat. I drank from him, taking in his other victims blood. Humans never satisfied my craving. Only when concentrated in the vampire body was I content. Though the best part was yet to come.
The man was now only making feeble attempts to free himself. I pushed him onto the floor and straddled him. Such beautiful teeth this vampire had. I reached out and plucked a fang from the socket.
"You bitch!"He hollered, blood only flowing a little since I drank most of it.
I popped the tooth into my mouth. It crunched like a piece of candy. His fangs would cut into my stomach. A painful process but worth it since it would allow what I was to devour next spread more quickly through my body. As I pulled the second tooth and consumed it, my other hand jerked his black coat away to expose his chest. What is it with vampires and black I wondered.
With one sharp blow my fist was past his ribcage. The vampire still fought and grabbed for my arm. When I found what I was looking for, my hand emerged with his heart. The arteries still attached and stretched to their limit. This was where the good stuff was. A fluid so sweet and powerful. It was like a drug to me and I was addicted. The vampire only looked up at me. He knew it was over. I almost felt sorry, as I always do, but remember all of their victims. All dead.
With a smile I struck. With three bites the heart was gone. The vampire shrunk and crumbled like dirt. I didn't notice. I was in euphoria now. My body rocked and swayed as the intense heat spread through me. Another stronger wave rolled over me as it traveled through the wounds in my stomache.Nothing could ever explain the feeling I was going through. So alive! After what only seemed like five minutes, I stood and noticed a movement out the corner of my eye. I looked and saw a woman. Wild and naked. Skin the color of a red rose and hair the same color. Her eyes were as black as obsidian. It was only my reflection in the mirror. Only me. I smiled and was out the window into the night. I'm still hungry. Always hungry.
