Jennifer was almost done pampering herself, which meant that my death was imminent. I sighed and pictured me and Jordan and all our happy moments: when we first met, our first date when he revealed his secret to me, our first kiss on that same date, our first prom, me moving in with him, our last prom, our graduation, our ball, and lastly, the start of our new life in the vampire realm. I sighed with happiness as pictures of all those memories that we had created together floated around in my head. It just gave me so much peace focusing on the last 4 years of my life that I had spent with Jordan. And now it all came down to this. I never thought I’d ever be in this position. I mean, just this past week, I’ve been having the time of my life with prom and graduation. It seemed like my life was perfect. Everything was going the right way for me and nothing was going wrong. Me and Jordan had been so happy, excited about prom and graduation, but now we had been ripped apart and were upset and would now be separated by death. Jennifer walked out the bathroom just then, grinning big.
“Well, Jasmine, Jordan will be so upset that you died right under his nose and that he didn’t reach you in time,” Jennifer snickered, gloating. I sighed and waited for her to announce that it was time for me to die, but instead she said,
“Well, I feel like maybe Jordan needs to see a last memory of you alive, so maybe I should record this.”
“NO, please don’t,” I begged; I didn’t want to cause Jordan more pain than he needed.
“Well, when you put it like that…NO! I want my revenge on him for hurting, so I’m going to cause him as much pain as possible when he watches the video of me torturing you to death,” Jennifer said. Oh, great, I was hoping my death would be fast, but instead it’s going to be slow and painful, I sighed to myself. I knew that would have been too quick for me to be dying, so she’s dragging out. I just hope Jordan doesn’t come in when it’s happening; I just wanna die and get it over with; I don’t want him to watch. From the way things are going, though, it seems that things in that way will go in my favor. Jordan is probably nowhere near here, and won’t get here in time, but probably long after it’s over, thank goodness. The reason why I wasn’t keeping my hopes up for Jordan to save me and for everything to be all right was because I knew it wouldn’t happen, it was just impossible. My life was getting ready to end and nothing could stop it from happening, not even Jordan, who was probably a thousand miles away. I sighed and felt a tear escape from my eye as I saw a picture of me and Jordan when we had first laid eyes on each other. I just couldn’t hold back the waterworks now. I cried and cried and as Jennifer was setting up the video camera, she noticed me crying and said,
“Finally, a proper reaction.” I ignored her statement and just cried more and more. About halfway through my intense crying, she cut the video camera on and said,
“Say hi to Jordan.” I said,
“Jordan, I love you.” And then my torturous death began as she laid me on propped up pillows, put my hair behind me, let her fangs out, and sunk her fangs into my neck, me screaming in the process.
I followed the scent and followed it. A few times, guards and servants would pass by, so I’d just hide in any nearby rooms or alcoves. Finally, her scent started to get stronger, and I began to follow it up many stairs, which seemed like forever. Finally, I reached the top, which led me into a tower room, and I found a picture of Jasmine and me, but nothing else. I guess the picture somehow got her scent on it before my dad put it up here in his office. I picked up Jasmine’s scent once again and it led me through many hallways and doors. It dragged on and on until finally I reached a dead end. I was getting really frustrated, because if I didn’t find Jasmine soon, I could lose her forever. I was hoping that when I reached her, she would still be alive and in a decent condition, but I knew my hopes were pointless: I mean, she was with Jennifer for goodness sakes! As I sniffed on, I remembered all our happy memories together, like when we first met, and our first date. It made me begin to tear up, and I actually cried a little, but I told myself to stay strong for Jasmine, so I dried my tears. I ran and ran and ran, until I finally felt like I was getting closer. I kept on running, almost running into my parents in the process, so I quickly hid, and thankfully, they were talking to someone, so they didn’t see or notice me hiding nearby. As soon as the coast was clear, I got out and ran as fast as I could, trying to pick up the scent again. I did immediately, and finally it became so strong that it was sickening right in front of a door to a room that I knew was normally empty. All of a sudden, I heard a scream come from the room and I knew something was wrong, but I needed to be careful. I waited a couple minutes longer for any other sound, and then another scream was emitted. I knew that it was time for me to act. I grabbed a sword that was hanging on the wall to arm myself. Then I burst through the door, and to my horror, I found Jennifer on top of Jasmine, who was beaten up and bleeding badly, and Jennifer was feeding on Jasmine!
