I wrote this when I was supposed to be writing a story for my english corsework, but I decided to write something a bit different for school so I've posted this on here instead.

The wind chilled my face and nipped my fingers. It was a cold February evening; all my friends were still at Alex's 18 birthday party in one of the many clubs and pubs they decided to visit in Cardiff that night. I decided to leave early thanks to the exam I would be sitting first thing tomorrow morning (for some reason the party had to be in the middle of the week).
 
Half past eleven, the sky black as coal, waiting to be lit by the fiery breath of the sun. I parked my car in some small car park near the first pub we visited. Luckily the last pub we were in was almost as close to the car park.
 
Walking alone, I quickened my pace; the feeling of being watched controlled my body. Counting my steps – one, two, one, two – as my stilettos echoed on the smooth concrete floor. Each step was a dagger in my chest, “It's only your shoes, it's only your shoes” I repeated, trying to convince myself that I was safe and completely, alone...
 
I reached the car park within minutes, but when I arrived there were no cars to be found...
All was quiet in the car park; it was a bad idea to walk back alone. Disguised in the darkness, an engine roared, a white piercing light stared menacingly at me. Frozen to the spot, I knew what would happen next. The fierce, snarling machine screamed as the shadowed figure – behind the wheel – revved. In a flash, the machine picked up speed. Searing pain. White hot anger. Panic stricken. Alone.
 
Unable to move, my heart skipped a beat, am I dead? The car that hit me was mine... Now alone and afraid, no way to get home.
 
Footsteps – I called out to the darkness. Silence. The footsteps stopped. All I could hear was my heart thumping frantically against my chest. A lump in my throat, “hello?” I tried to say, but came out choked and quiet. Silence. The footsteps slowly began again, faster and faster, with each step the stranger closed in on my helpless body. I tried to get up. Arms and legs not obeying my orders, I held my breath. The figure was so close now I could feel his warm breath tickling my face. Without warning, he grabbed my hair, pulling me up with such force I gasped in pain. Helpless. Hopeless. Screaming. Crying. Wishing – wondering if I'll ever get home. Clutching my scalp and almost collapsing as the figure released my hair and grabbed me round the waist and neck.
 
As my eyes adapted to the darkness, the figure became clearer. It was a man, with piercing green eyes that burned your skin with the hunger of an animal. His lips twisted into an evil smile, the gleam of his pearl white teeth twinkled in the darkness. He kissed my neck and his long hair tickled my face. I was afraid what he would do next, I tried screaming again, but got captured in his deep, sad eyes. I wasn't prepared to wait for him to make a move so I tried to pull away. Although he wasn't that big he had hidden strength, I couldn't so much as move a fraction of an inch in his grip although he didn't grip me too tightly.
 
An airy but low voice escaped his lips as he said “I'm sorry, but you’re too pretty to be alone on a night like this”. I couldn't believe my ears, he was about to something stupid, something I would regret for the rest of my life. He ran the back of his hand down the side of my cheek “don't worry” he whispered “I promise it won't hurt you if you submit”.
 
As anger surged through my veins, I regained part of my confidence and said “don't even try it, I'll call the police!” “Oh?” his airy voice came again “And what do you suppose the police could do – to a vampire?”
