They ran to the ends of the earth with each other because they knew that the others were out there, waiting to get them. All they had left now was each other. The bright orange sky was becoming dim as it melted into the ground bringing more colors after it.
She gripped his hand and began to cry as she ran along side of him. He stopped immediately as they skidded across the dirt. “I promise I won’t let them hurt you. But if they get me the only way you can get out alive is to stake my heart. Do you understand? Can you do that for me?” He whispered to her as he stroked her hair and her back.
She nodded as she grabbed the stake he held out to her and put it into her back pocket. They needed to get to the town and fast. Their lives depended on it, they needed to make there before the sun sets. Vampires were on the loose, and one false move could get them killed.
A rustling sound was heard among the bushes as they ran throught he outskirts of the town. She clutched the spike harder and harder that she almost had splinters in her soft, pale palms.
A thud was heard as she ran without her beloved. “Just keep running!” he called out to her as one of them sunk their teeth and feasted on him. She stumbled and fell backwards onto her back. He cried out to her, convincing her to run, to leave him, to save herself while she had the chance.
She whipped out her pistol and shot at them, to get them away from her lover. They hissed at her, but fled the area for now. She fell to her knees as she held his head in her hands. “What have they done to you?” She wept as his face grew paler and paler by the minuet.
“We need to get to the town, a doctor or a church.” He coughed. There was no time left to waste now. She helped him up, as they ran once again. They finally made it to the church before he transformed into one of the monsters that were after them.
As they made it to the top steps of the church, he collapsed. He fell on hands and knees, he had one hand over his heart as he clutched it tightly. “Oh, please don’t leave me!” She yelled to him.
He turned over on to his back and looked at her, with pleading eyes. “Please, please stake my heart…” He begged her. She refused. “I’ll take revenge on them for what the did to you.”
She held his head once more, and as she did this she lay a kiss on his cold, pale, faded lips. She couldn’t bring herself to abandon him, after everything they’ve been through, she couldn’t bring her self to do it. “I promise you, I’ll kill them.”
She stayed until his body went limp. She held back the tears that now lined her hazel eyes. She couldn’t believe he was gone. She decided that it was useless to wait there for a corpse that would never wake again. As she began to walk away, she heard shuffling behind her. She turned around and saw him moving. She ran over to him. He’s alive! She thought to herself. She was so relieved that he was. As he stood up with her help he held her close to him.
“I knew you wouldn’t leave me.” She said to him. “I know, I know.” He whispered back to her. She noticed that the sun had must’ve set while he held her there, close to him. Day had turned into night, but she couldn’t be scared with him here. Now that he was back she couldn’t imagine life without him. “There is just one thing that you just don’t understand Love.” He said. “What’s that?” She said confused as she pulled away from his embrace. “Vampires…will…never…hurt…you…” He said smiling wide enough to show her his fangs…The same moment he leaned in and sank them into her neck.
