Our mission was simple. All we had to do was kill a few blood
thirsty demons. Erik and I where scouting the local woods where
the beasts had been seen. I separated from Erik looking around a
highly dense area. It was pitch black and you could hardly see
anything, the only light you had was provided from the moon. I
walked slowly trying not to make much noise when I heard a weird
growling sound from behind me. I slowly turned my head and saw a
dark figure. It sort of resembled a bear. Its fangs where huge.
And it's eyes were a bloody red. Red eyes appeared in the shadows
all around me. I was surrounded. A high pitched screach escaped
its lips and it charged at me with its fangs bared ready to take
my life. I pulled out my pistol aiming at its head. I was about
to fire when the beast once again screamed, but this time not
from outrage but from pain. Blood gushed from an area around its
chest and it fell over. Behind it stood Erik with a long slender
sword covered in the blue blood of the beast. Erik himself had a
cocky smirk in place on his porcelain face. The Demons comrades
took no time to lunge at use. I fired my gun killing one
instantly. I turned to kill another but it had already started to
fall from one of Erik's blows. I had not noticed but I had left
myself open for one of the demons to attack. It was too late, by
the time I had turned my head its paw was already a foot away. I
closed my eyes awaiting the blow, but it never came. I opened my
eyes to see Erik's back.
"Get back and watch because I can't protect a weak a girl
like you right now." H said giving me a fierce look. I stepped
back into the shadows and watched him have his way. He was
obviously having a hard time on his own, but I didn't care. If he
didn't want my help I wouldn't give it to him. I left. I left him
there on his own. I didn't care if he got hurt. What could I do
after all I'm just a week little girl. I walked out of the woods
jumped in my car and left. I hadn't known where I was going but I
ended up at the bar. I walked in and took a seat. Ordering a
strawberry margarita I waited there thinking of what had happened
earlier. I didn't think Erik was like that, looks like I was
I had been sitting there for about 15 minutes and had
gone through many different drinks. I was almost considered
drunk. I looked out of the corner of my eye to see a man walking
up to me. You could tell he was drunk because of how unbalanced
"Hey baby, I was watching and you look a little lonely
sitting here all by yourself." He said taking the seat next to
"Get lost." I said in a flat voice not really in the mood
to deal with a drunk.
"Awww come on don't be so boring, don't you want to have
a little fun." His words where slurred and he hiccupped a few
"I said to get lost you stupid drunk" I turned away and
picked up my fourth drink that night taking a sip. I felt a sharp
tip touch the small of my back.
"Now now baby doll, you're not going to make this harder
then it has to be are you"
"What is it you want." I said jaming the tip of my gun in
is gut. It was dark so all people would see is his hand on my
back and my own on his stomach.
"If you shoot baby doll it will cause a scene" He was
right. If I were to shoot in this place I would be in jail within
a few minutes. But I wasn't going to let him know this. I was
going to make him think that I would not hesitate to shot. I
looked up into his dark brown eyes with a hard stare. For a
second his eyes flashed red. That concluded what I had feared. He
was an immortal. A vampire.
"Come with me baby doll, such a cute little thing like
you shouldn't be caring around such a dangerous toy like that."
He walked me out of the back door of or the bar. Not waiting a
single second I removed myself from his grip and took a few steps
back. "What's the matter you're not scared of me are you
Hunter?" He said a look of sick twisted amusement crossed his
I held up my silver pistol so that it was aligned with his head.
My vision blurred a little but I didn't let it worry me. I would
be done with this demon before the alcohol could get to me. I was
about to fire when he escaped my line of vision. I looked around
the alley hoping to catch sight of him but to no avail. A wicked
laugh echoed throughout the alley.
"Having some trouble baby doll" I saw a flash of a figure
and was punched in the gut. I was sent back a few feet and
hunched over in pain.
"Why you." I said through gritted teeth. Taking out
vampires where tricky, you never knew when they would strike. I
closed my eyes hoping I could sense his presence. He'll come from
Behind in three, two, one! I turned and went to grab. My hand
griped around his wrist and I chucked him over my shoulder. I
heard a grunt and I opened my eyes to see him lying on the
ground. My vision went out again and I was starting to get dizzy.
The man started to laugh uncontrollably.
"You think because you were able to land one move that
you won." Within a blink of an eye I was shoved into the alley
wall and I let out a small whimper of pain. "Well your terribly
mistaken." He whispered in my ear. It was over. I could no longer
walk the alcohol had finally hit me. There was nothing I could
do. I was in a bone braking death grip. I awaited his final
strike staring straight at him. I wasn't going to die with my
eyes closed. That is just a form of weakness. He moved his hand
back read to bash my skull in when out of nowhere a dagger came
splitting through the air and sliced right through his arm. The
man screamed out from pain and jumped back a couple of feet.
After I was released I doubled over in pain and coughed
"If you touch her again you'll lose more than just an
arm." I heard a voice full of malice and hatred. I looked up to
see the back of a man standing in front of me in a protective
mater. I wasn't sure who it was sense I couldn't see his face.
"What are you doing!? Why are you helping that hunter!?
She kills our people!" The vampire took a deep breath and looked
at the man that had protected me, "I'll make you a deal if you
turn around now and kill her I will over look this betrayal." The
man in front of me just laughed.
"Now why would I kill my own partner." My eyes widened.
Erik. Erik had come to save me, but how did he know where I was?
I looked towards the vampire and saw that his face was one of
shock. He bolted off down the alley onto the main street and Erik
let him. He turned around to face me with a look of no emotion.
I was helpless, again. He picked me up bridal style and walked me
out of the alley back towards where I had parked my car earlier.
Neither of us spoke on the way back. He put me in the passenger's
seat and shut the door. A few seconds later he climbed into the
driver's seat, started the car, and was off onto the road.
It had been ten minutes and the silence remand. I had to
brake it, I was going insane.
"How did you find me?" I asked, my voice was unsure. He
only took a quick look at me but never answered. I looked down
closing my eyes. "I'm sorry for being such a nuisance." I felt
him staring at me, but I didn't look up.
"Why do you say that?"
"Huh?" I looked up and saw him staring at me with an
"You would have won if you hadn't consumed all of that
alcohol." He said turning back to look at the road.
The drive home was long and I ended up falling asleep at
some point but I swore I heard Erik mumble "don't ever worry me
like that again kayla."
