walk straight inside. I jumped ten foot when a loud crash came
from the storage room.

slightly so I could see in. Without noticing it I had set the
door on fire.
"Shit!" I murmured.
Lucian pushed past me walking straight
through the fiery door. I held my breath following him inside. A
human stood with stakes, crosses and garlic covering
"Shit!" I heard him whisper.
ran through the clutter and out the fire escape. We followed.
Lucian flit forward in front of the human.
"What are you doing here?" The human
asked. There was fear in his voice.

property. I ask of you to kindly replace it where you found

"Damien?" I asked.
"Isabelle?" He asked.

"What are you doing here Damien?"
"I slay the vamps now. I needed some equipment and you had plenty
enough so I thought I'd... you know take some for myself,"
This made me furious. An ex-boyfriend stealing from you is not
good for a seventeen year old vampire.
He ran but I was faster thanks to the scary vampire
"How did you..? Oh Isabelle. You're not are
"I'm not what?"
I knew what he was going to ask I just wanted to give Lucian some
time to come up behind him.

stomach hard. I felt hungry. Like I'd been starving myself.
(Believe me I know what it feels like from past
"Isabelle? Are you ok my dear?"
Lucian had tied Damien to a lamppost; he was struggling and
"I think I'm hungry,"
It felt weird saying it out loud. But I had to admit I was
"Well that's normal. When you come within a
few feet of human's you will get hungry,"
"What do I...uh do?"
"It's simple really. Just think of blood.
Your fangs will appear and you can feed."
"Is that what you did with me and Nathan?"
Lucian just nodded.
"Now I suggest you feed from this trouble
maker here. Maybe he will learn his lesson,"
"I wont...uh change him will I?"
"No that's only if you intend to change someone. But I didn't
intend to change Nathan you know. I was thinking about you too
smiled to myself and walked towards Damien. He was really
struggling now. He tried spitting out the gag but it wasn't
happening. I cupped his face in my hands.
"I'm sorry Damien. But you're a bastard and I
think you deserve this more than anything,"
heard Lucian laughing slightly behind me. Damien squealed and
squirmed but I held his head and neck still. I thought of blood.
I thought of a warmness that filled me and sure enough my fangs
appeared. It didn't hurt but they felt weird in my mouth. Like
the fangs you get for Halloween.

warm flow of blood flooded my mouth. It was so good that I drank
until I was satisfied. I looked at Damien. His eyes were closed
and he had gone limp.
"Lucian! I haven't killed him have I?"
Lucian checked out Damien. He smirked shaking his
"No. He has just fainted."
We laughed. Then Damien came back to reality. I ungagged his
mouth, bad idea.
"You BITCH! Ugh, Isabelle? What the
hell have you done to yourself? Was it him? Did he do this to
you? If he did I'll fucking kill him!"
stood back. Watching as Damien went red with fury.
"No. It wasn't him. It was me. I chose
this Damien. And if you don't like it then fine you can fuck off!
I told you I never wanted to see you again anyway! Why do you
think I moved school?"
was furious with him. Thankfully Lucian was there to keep him
quiet. He walked over to Damien getting behind him. He put his
hands over his eyes and whispered something in his ear. Damien
went limp again.
"What was that? Hypnotism?" I
"Yes. It has wiped his memory of anything to
do with us vampires. It's also knocked him out so I think we
should just sort of dump him somewhere,"
nodded. Damien was a bastard anyway. I didn't really care what
happen to him. Lucian picked him up and walked towards the gates.
I followed not wanting to be left alone in case there were any
other crazy ex-boyfriends who wanted to kill me.

had left we walked back inside to start some vampire
