Love and Fear- part one

The sweet yet tangy liquid threatened to run down her chin, but she was careful not to let any of the precious treasure escape. Who knew when she would get another feast like this? The blood of the innocent was always the sweetest, and every drop must be savored. Innocent. She scoffed at the word, for she hardly knew the meaning of innocence anymore. By now her own blood had to be blacker than the lagoon alongside which the rest of her kind resided. Alice knew her place, and it was above any common mortal's. Yet she and the rest of her kind were forced to live in constant fear of them, for if their secret became known...well, it was unthinkable. After finishing her feast she dumped the cold body into the river on her way home.

“Hey where have you been missy?” Alice’s mother Andria demanded.

“I was out. Sorry can't talk.” Alice replied heading upstairs to her bedroom to get clothes for a shower to wash the blood off of her face and clothes. Pulling out a blue and pink night gown Alice ran to the bathroom quickly before her mom could stop her. “Ma i'm taking a shower!” Alice hollered running into the bathroom slamming the door behind her. Taking off her clothes she put them into the washer and hopped into the shower. As Alice walked out of the bathroom her mother was on the other side of the door waiting.

“When have you been?” She yet demanded again.

“I was out with some friends and I was all dirty and I didn’t want you to get mad because of my clothes.” Alice lied forgetting about the clothes in the washer. She ran into her room pasted her mother grabbing more dirty laundry and throwing it into the washer and hitting start.

“Alright well next time leave me a note or something or you're grounded.” Going into her room she noticed something weird on her desk. It was a note which looked like it was from her friend Natalie. Opening the letter she read Dear Alice If you're reading this that means you got my letter. We know what you did and we have your friend Nataliemeet us on Route 17 the old abandon house. It was 10 in the afternoon and I had to go save a friend but really all I wanted to do was sleep. I slipped on a black skirt and a blue flower shirt. I snuck out the window because their was no way my mom was gonna let me leave this late at night. I headed to route 17 it only taking me 20 minutes at the most to get there. I walked into the house “What’s this about?” I asked demanding to know.

“We know that you told.” They said hinting me to know what it is but i didn’t.

“Told what?” I asked confused.

Two other men I had never seen before walked into the room with Natalie. “You told her that we were vampires” Jake shouted. “We can’t trust her with our secret you know that.”

“We can trust her. She won’t tell anyone.” I replied.

“No we can’t sorry but you know the drill.” He walked over to Natalie putting his hands around her throat but not yet squeezing.

“No don’t touch her.” I shouted.

“You have three choices here Alice so pick so I can go home.” Jake said letting go of her neck. “One, let me kill her. Two, change her into one of us. Or three, I kill you both.”

I walked up to Natalie and whispered into her ear. “Im not afraid of death so pick what should I do. Natalie stared off into space to think and whispered. I don’t want to die I have just grown up change me into one of you so that we can be friends forever. I nodded. Biting her neck I injected her with my venom, turning around I nodded to Jake. He walked up to her spazzing body and snapped her neck.

Standing up and stroking the side of my face he said to me. “Why don’t you come with me we can talk.” He suggested. I stood up without speaking. He grabbed my hand and ran out of the room and onto Jake’s front steps. Letting go of my hand he opened the door and waited for me to walk in first. “ Make yourself at home. Would you like anything to drink. Boold? Water? Anything that you would like we have.”

“Water will be fine.” I replied looking round and taking a seat. He came in with the drinks handing me mine. Sitting down on the couch next to me he turned to face me. I was just staring off into space. “What’s wrong?” He asked like he didn’t know.

“I didn’t want her to live the way we do.” I replied. He brushed my hair out of my face.

“I know how you feel I had to change Alex myself.” It got silent for a moment when I spoke up.

“Hey… Have you ever imagined being a human again?” I asked.

“Yes I have. I wish I was a human and not this ugly creature.” He replied. I stroked the side of his face.

“Your not ugly not like this and not anyway else.” We stared at each other for a minute or two when he stroked my face and kissed me. Surprised by what had happened i kissed him back but only for a sec. I stode up “I must go.” I went to walk for the door when he stode up and grabbed my arm.

“Please don’t leave.” He sighed. Jake is one of those guys where he has to act all tough around the others but in reality all he is is one big soft gummy bear and I liked that about him. I turned around and nodded. Him kissing me again. “Thank you.” We walked to his bedroom and flicked the television on watching Hachi. I looked at him a few times and he looked back. Hours later the movie was ending. I started to cry because the dog was alone and had died.

“Hey are you okay?” He asked.

“Yeah just the movie is all.” it was around one in the morning and I need to get home my mom was gonna be really mad at me. I got up off the bed and out on my jacket.

“Heading home?” He asked. I could tell he didn’t want me to leave.

“Yeah I got to go home my moms gonna be mad that I have left.” I replied looking at him. He got up and walked me to the door. I turned around just standing there looking at me. Wanting to ask him to walk me home. Just as I went to ask he kissed me again this time longer. Aftering backing away I spoke up. “Will you walk me home?” I held his hand.

“Yes.” He replied we walked all the way home talking about or families and our past it was the best night ever. For once I was happy and truly happy with him and myself. We arrived at my house and I went up stairs sending him home. I walked up to my bedroom taking of my jacket when i noticed my mom sitting on the edge of my bed. “I went for a walk…” I started to say but she cut me off before I could finish.

“I'm done with your excuses Alice. You're grounded for the week and you're to stay in here only to come out to eat and use the bathroom.”

“But mom i have plans.” I shouted.

“I don’t care young lady.” She replied.

“I’m not staying here.” I started explaining as my mother slapped me.

“Watch your tone with me.” I ran out of the room. “Alice wait. I’m sorry. I didn’t…” But I kept running. I ran all the way back to Jake’s house. I knocked on the door but no one answered. Instead of leaving I sat down and cried eventually I fell asleep.

“Alice.” A voice called. “Alice wake up.” I awoke to see Jake. “Why are you sleeping on my porch?”

“I… I... “ I started to explain.

“That don’t matter right now come inside it’s cold out here.” I nodded. We walked inside when I asked.

“Is it alright if I stay?”

“Yeah.” He replied. I laid down on his couch him covering up. He kissed my forehead and headed off to sleep. Hours passed and I couldn’t sleep. I got up and headed towards the back of the house. Knock! Knock! “You up?” I asked.

“Yeah what’s up?”

“I couldn’t sleep.”

“Yeah same here.”

“Is it alright if I…” I started to say hoping he would know what I was talking about.

“Yeah sure.” I climbed onto the bed and layed down next to him laying my head on his chest listening to his heart beat inside him. Eventually I fell asleep and so did he.

 

Morning arrived. I awoke and Jake was gone. I got up out of bed and walked to the kitchen. “Hey you okay?” He asked.

“Yeah I’m fine just a long night is all. He walked up to me and gave me a big huge after all I really needed it. We stood there hugging for what seemed forever. “I ought to get home then.”

“Mind if I walk you?” He asked.

I smiled, “Yeah I would love that.” I replied. We walked for hours before arriving at my house. There was two police and an ambulance in my driveway. We ran up to one of the policemen. “What happened here? Why you at my house?”

“It’s your mother... She was attacked.” The policeman replied.

“Attached?” I questioned.

“Yes. She was attached but what seems to be a vampire. The vampire got away but your mother didn’t make it. I'm sorry.” The officer walked off hanging his head a little. I threw myself to the ground and started balling my eyes out. Jake knelt down beside me rubbing my back.

“Alice.” He paused. “Alice look at me.” I looked up at him. “Everything will be alright I promise we’ll find out who did it we will. I promise.” He assured me.

I was steel balling but I was able to make out the words. “I know who.”

“You now who?” I got up not answering his question and headed on inside. I went into my bedroom and put on some clean clothes. For what i was doing I thought that a black shirt and blue jeans was fine I wasn’t to worried about what I was wearing.

“I'm confused who would do this to you?” Jake asked.

“Natalie.” I replied looking at him but only for a moment. I rushed over to Natalie’s house the door was wide opened. There was pools of blood on the floors. “Natalie.” I shouted. Around the corner in the living room there Natalie was sobbing on the floor her mother’s dead body at her feet.

“What do you want? You did this to me.” She asked standing up.

“I did this to you?” I mocked. “I did this to you. We had three choices Natalie… One, kill you. Two, change you into one of us. Or three, let Jake kill us both. I let you choose because I was fine with ever happened. It didn’t matter to me.” I punched her in the stomach and she went flying across the room. I vampire speed ran up to her snapping the leg off a chair. Stabbing her in the stomach inches away from her heart she let out a scream.

“Ahhh.”she screamed again when I pulled it out. Jake ran up to me grabbing my arm.

“Alice this isn’t you.” I knew he was right but I didn’t want to believe it. But he was still right. I leaned in close right next to her ear and whispered this is you. You're not meant to be like this you will never be one of us.

“Ahhh.” I struck her again but a little bit closer to her heart this time. Do what’s best for all of us kill yourself and stop this lifetime of misery. We walked out of the house hand in hand when I started to ball once again.

Jake jumped out in front of me and started to talk. “There's nothing that we could have done she did this to herself.”

I interrupted. “No. I did this to her. I changed her.”

“No! No! It was her she did this.” i believed him. I didn’t know if I wanted to or not but I did. Still balling I pulled him closes and rested my head on his shoulder. Screams came from inside the house. Natalie was gone. “Hey...  I love you.” I sniffled and replied I love you.

 

Six years later.

 

I woke up from a bad dream. “Hey are you okay?” Jake asked me sitting up.

“Yeah just a bad dream is all.” I replied. W0e went back to sleep since we had school in the morning.

 

Morning arrived and I was still tired but I managed to get up. It was the first day of school and I already hated it. Jake was still asleep so I left him be while I showered. I was looking in the mirror when my facial features changed I look exactly like the killer in my bad dream. I backed away tripping over a soap bottle. I hit my head off the edge of the tub and blacked out. An hour had passed I was still unconscious.

“Hey… Alice. Wake up. Alice...  Baby wake up.” I heard from what sounded far away but I didn’t awake. I heard ambulance outside as I was lifted off the ground.

 

Hour later.

 

I woke up from a hospital bed I looked to my right no one was there. I looked to my left Jake was sleeping. Just as we woke up I reached out my arm. Grabbing my hand and holding it tight he went to go speak “Hey… Are you... “ The doctor walked in with a chart.

“Hey you're up we need to run a few tests before you go home.” The doctor explained. “In gonna have to ask you to leave.” Looking at Jake he stood up and left the room my eyes watching him disappear from the room. I tried to talk but he cut me off. “So we are gonna run a few tests like I said before.” He stuck a needle into my arm taking blood from my arm.

“What are you doing?” I asked.

“Let's just keep that unknown you will find out sooner or later. Depends on how well of a listener you are.” Before I could scream for Jake he put this thing over my nose and month. Seconds after I once again went unconscious.

 

I opened my eyes slightly to see what was going on. No one was in the room so I finished opening my eyes and looked at the clock on the table to my left. It was 8:40 I had come in at 6:10. Why was I here? What did they want from me. The thing that was put on my face was still there. I was strapped to the bed and unable to get free or get the thing off my face. I tried and tried but I drifted off back to sleep this time I didn’t wake up for hours. I wondered what Jake was doing was he worried or did he leave and go home. Where was Jake.

The door opened and Jake peered in looking at me. “J...a...ke.” I tried to say though the thing was still there.

“We need to get out of here and far away as possible.” He said unbuckling my legs. I wanted to say No dip. ‘I have been strapped to this bed for hours and hours and that's what you got to say. Really?’ But the stupid thing was still over my mouth. The doctor then walked in and saw him. Hurrying to grab a tranquilizer and get Jake. It was to late Jake knocked the doctor out. “Sorry but I'm not staying neither is she.” He finished unbuckling me when the gases made me pass out… again.

 

I woke up in a weird alley way. “Where are we?” I asked rubbing my eyes. I sat up and I was alone. Jake left me here is what I thought to myself.

“Hey you're up.” He said with a smile on his face. I didn’t say anything. I just got up and ran to him giving him a big hug.

“Thank you.” I managed to reply. He hugged me back and we just stood there like we did days before. “For everything.”

He stepped back looking down at the ground. “Hey what’s wrong?” I asked.

“Well… Um.” he sighed. “It's just I have been thinking lately.” He looked up and into my eyes. “That we shouldn’t be together anymore.” My eyes started to water but I held back the tears as long as I could. “It's not safe for you. Those doctors in that hospital are after me.” I started to cry. I put my arms around him and on he talked. “I killed one of their workers and someone else witnessed it and ever since they have been tracking me down. Everyone that's close to me that I love or care about dies. I want you to live a happy life with someone who you can be safe with.” He rubbed my back. Pushing me back he disappeared. I through myself to the ground and crying. Eventually I pasted out right there in the abandoned alley way. Where I last saw Jake.

I woke up still in the alley and I was hungry. Someone was walking towards me. It was the man from the hospital. I got up and vampire ran up to him. At first I hesitated but the fear in his eyes overwhelmed me. I stuck my teeth into his neck and drank every once of his blood out of his body. I dropped him on the ground. Turning around I started to cry. I couldn't take all the pain anymore of being a vampire. As I walked down the alley before reaching the end. I turned it off. I shut off my humanity.
