RACHEL WAS STANDING among the people, waiting for David to come back. Suddenly, she felt something hard, like a gun, pushing against her back.
A man with a cold voice whispered into her near, “Don’t move and don’t speak, follow me.”
That man pushed against Rachel’s back with a gun. He put his other arm around her to make it look as if he were her boyfriend.
They walked towards to the deepest of the town. There was a big wall with a high gate.
Rachel stared at the note on the gate, “Nobody Is Allowed to Enter Without the Agreement of the Mayor of the Town.”
“What…” Rachel wanted to turn around and talk to the man. But the man didn’t give her a chance to speak. He grabbed her waist, ran up onto the wall, jumping over the fence.
It was dark in there. There were thick woods, no light.
That man pushed Rachel to a little clearing in the wood where a man and a woman stood there waiting for them under the moonlight.
“Rachel,” the man who was standing before them went towards to Rachel, said, “You are the white fox came from China, aren’t you?”
Rachel glanced at him without saying a word.
He stared at Rachel through the moonlight, touched her black hair with his fingers, putting his hand under her chin, turning her face up to his.
“What a beautiful face!” he said after staring at her black eyes.
“Shall we take her to the house now, Daniel?” the woman behind him said to him.
“Yeah, we go now.” he let go of Rachel’s face, signalled the man who brought Rachel to take her and follow them.
Rachel was pushed in the middle, she said, “I know you are vampires. You have been ordered to catch me. But, do you know what would happen if you take me to your king?”
“Our responsibility is taking you to the king. We don’t care what would happen to you. It’s none of our business.” The man behind Rachel said.
“It’s not my own fate. It’s also yours, and the whole world’s.”
“What’s our fate? What’s the whole world? I don’t see what the consequences would be if we take you to the king.”
“You would have a fierce war with werewolves and human beings. And the war would continue over twenty years. After that, the whole world would be gone for good.”
“Shut up, John! Will you?!” the man in front of Rachel suddenly yelled at him.
