*Rose Garden* [chapter 11]

Posted in *Book* on 30/05/2012 by Soul Reaper

I lay on the sofa, silent and plunged in a peaceful slumber. Light breeze made me shiver. But he only touched my face. Slowly I awoke. I opened my eyes and saw the blanket, which I was covered. When I looked up I saw that the vampire was standing by the window, staring out into the boiling nightlife. I was surprised. I was hoping that I will not have to go to the home of vampires, but here’s what happened. As in the proverb: <If Mohammed does not go in the mountains, the mountain comes to Mohammed!>

 

-What are you doing here? – I asked with a trembling voice.

-I heard about the anemia.

-Don’t tell me that you were worried. This will be the last thing in which I believed.

 

He turned to me with astonishment. He expected to hear an explanation of my words.

 

-Why not have believed it?

-For the same reason I does not believe that Celeste liked me. I’m usually mortal girl, but I’m not stupid.

-You are right. Celeste is with dark thoughts. She wanted your blood.

-So I guessed. But why are you giving so much work?

 

He came and sat on the couch. He was relaxed and stared into the darkness. I don’t expect to answer me and I could not get him to tell me the truth. Even the slightest attempt to attack him would have ended in death. My death, of course. So I stood up and took a few steps. I felt much better. I do not feel dizzy, but I don’t overreach.

 

I went to the kitchen and poured a glass of milk. Drink, but I just kept thinking. Something told me that behind this interest Celeste was hiding a secret. On the other hand was the problem with my parents. Where were they, damn it? I took my cup and went into the living room. I expected Alexander to be gone, but he was still there. He looked thoughtful, but I certainly felt me. Before I could blink he stood behind me. I almost dropped the cup, but he caught it. Then he whispered in my ear.

 

-Because your parents.

-What?

-Aren’t they telling you?

-Telling me what? Speak bluntly.

 

I felt his breath on my neck. I shuddered, but I was not afraid. It was rather the impatience and excitement. I turned sharply and saw his transformed face. There was no intention to drink my blood, but had changed. He wanted me to watch him without forgetting what he was.

 

-What did you mean when you mention my parents?

-You better sit down.

 

He dragged me and made me sit down. He told me that my parents are hunters. Hunters? I did not understand what he meant. He told me that they are hunters of supernatural creatures, especially vampires. I was stumbled. I do not believe this is possible. Alexander noticed my confusion, but he paused and continued. He told me about “College of hunters” and the deal with the vampires. Only now I clarify the role of Mary Charles. She was not my nanny or friend of my parents, but rather guard. And as to my parents… they proved to be great deceivers. I could not believe it.

 

-You can believe that I’m a vampire, but you cannot believe that they kill monsters.

-They lie to me. And the role of Mary…

-She is here because of us. She is out supervisor.

-I know how you feel. And why are you here anyway?

-Your blood has a strange effect on me.

-Sorry.

-Don’t be. Celeste is probably loose.

-Why?

-She wants your blood, and I was the one who receives it.

-Well, I do not know what to say.

-Christina?

-What?

-I’ll kill your friend the werewolf.

-Bly? Why?

-Because I want.

 

As I stood, he twisted gracefully as a cat and lay down. He put his head on my knees and stared at the wall. Frankly I had no idea what to do. My heart is stirred so that whole my body trembled. I could not wield. For the first time I wanted so bad to kiss someone. I tried to think of something else. And just in time someone knock on the door. I thought that was Bly, but the vampire calm me. He said that there are a human. I went to open. It was Sally. She looked confused, angry and sad. I expected as we enter Alex’s left, but he was there. The girl stared at him in amazement. She wanted to tell me something.

 

-What is it, Sally? You look different than usual.

-Well, Bly is the problem.

-You saw his true nature, right? – It was more statement than question by the vampire.

-How do you know?

-We all have secrets. Soon you will see and mine.

-Alexander? – I looked at him in bewilderment.

-When you come into our world there have not turning back. – His smile revealed long canines.

 

Sally stepped back and bumped into me. She was horrified. She grabbed me and started pulling me towards the door. She does not stop stutters and asks me to leave. I did not move. I sighed and looked irritably at the vampire.

 

-Well done, mate! You scared to death my best friend.

-She saw Bly McLane. Why not meet with your friends?

-Chris, he is…he is…

-Vampire? Yes, he is and he is really strange. I don’t understand his behavior, but he will not hurt you. – And I looked at him questioningly and he nodded.

 

Sally sat down at the end of the couch and I brought her a glass of water to calm down. I sat quietly and told her everything. Or at least that part of the truth of which I knew. And Alexander sat down beside me. He behaved as if we were best friends. He gentle strokes my arm with a finger without looking at me. As if he did it quite deliberately. He enjoyed the fear in Sally. This amused him.

 

Eventually she (Sally) calm. Of course, I did not tell her that I gave on the vampire to drink my blood. This would only make her mad. Then she explained that she told her family about Bly, but they laughed to her.

 

-The told me to stop making this up. But tell me how to do it? I do not think those creatures will leave me just like that.

-It’s true. – The vampire said with indifference.

 

I frowned eyebrows and knocked his hand away.

 

-Stop frightened her. Listen, Alexander… Don’t you have something else to do? Why don’t go to kill someone or find a lover, with which to enjoy?

-I don’t kill people, but the second one… I have plans on this issue.

 

He looked at me as he will have what he wants. Both with Sally looked at him with astonishment. Suddenly something happened. Alexander stood up. He felt someone. Then relaxed. He told me that I can go and open. I did it. I stood up and opened the door. Before me stood none other, bur Mason. I was surprised to see him at home.

 

-What brought you here? – I whispered.

-I heard that Alexander was here and I came.

 

He looked cheerful, but actually something troubled him. I invited him to come and we went into the living room to Sally and Alex. The girl was startled, because she suspected what is the identity of the unexpected guest. Mason sat and looked at his friend. He wanted to talk with him. I took Sally by the hand and walked to the kitchen. I wanted to leave them alone. It was not necessary.

 

-Stay here. Anyway, you already are part of it.

-Are you sure, mate? The subject is not so pleasant.

-Speak up! Don’t make an idiot. And you two better sit down.

 

This was not a request but rather an order. His tone frightened me and accidentally sat. Sally also sat down. We were silent all the time. Mason said that they found the corpse of a man with two stab wounds to the neck. At first glance, was killing by a vampire. Alexander was furious. Both knew that this would worsen the situation with “The College”. This makes the vampires nervous. They create them unnecessary troubles. I don’t dare to intervene because it was not my job.

 

Finally, we were really tired. Sally went to bed in the room of my parents. Mason left, but Alexander was hard to tell. So I stopped to watch for his presence and went to bed. I let him do whatever he wants. I was so tired that I fell asleep almost immediately. He pulled the curtains tightly to not take any light or at night or during the day. There was no reason for it. Just lie down to sleep at three o’clock in the morning and did not want the sun at sunrise to bother us. Naturally, Mary was not there yet. Maybe she deals with murder, for which Mason mention.

 

While I slept, I still felt what was happening around me. Then I felt the bed moved. Slightly opened my eyes and tried to get up, but I heard his voice. He told me to sleep. It was needless to say who it was. It was Alexander, of course. He lay down next to me like it’s something natural. But I woke up. I looked at him and asked him why not go back. However, the room was not cold enough. It was dark and quiet. Then I got up and turned the air conditioner. Temperature dropped and I went to bed again. Only that this time I covered myself better. The vampire turned and hugged me and ran his hand over my waist. He did not need from a blanket. It was the crazy situation. Not that it’s unusual for vampires. They did not have particularly shame.

Mary delivers the roses in the house of the vampires all alone. Celeste was a bit disappointed by my absence. But when Mary mentioned the word “anemia” the vampire was rage. She doesn’t stop calling Alexander, and he was gone. She knew that he is guilty for my condition. It made her furious.

 

-I will make him pay for it.

-Relax, Celeste. The girl just does what is necessary. He defended her and he felt worse. Chris just felt guilty through her blood has paid her debt.

-You don’t understand, do you, witch? She belongs to him now. Such are the rules. He was the first vampire drink her blood.

-And you want this honor. Now Alexander will not feel lonely. You should be happy for him.

-Alexander is an idiot. But it does not matter. I can always transform her. – Celeste chuckled.

-No, you can’t do it. Otherwise I will inform “College of hunters”. You know what this means, right?

-They will hunt us again.

-Exactly. And most of them still believe that we should not allow you to live among humans. They don’t believe in your rehabilitation.

-It’s secure.

 

Mary smiled mischievously, while Celeste looked at her with contempt. The two of them were not friends, and have never been any. Rather Mary led as overseer of these vampires. The only thing Celeste was sorry now that she could not break her neck like a chicken. And so much she wanted.

 

*Rose Garden* [chapter 9]

As expected, Bly and his group had gathered in an old warehouse on the harbor. Their leader, whose name was Adam Morgan; he was not particularly pleased that the bloodsuckers walk freely around the city. It was more for territory than any other reason. And it is well known that the two kinds are blood enemies.

 

-And you made a bloodsucker to overthrow you?

-I was unprepared. It will not be repeated.

-I hope so, Bly. I hope so. – The leader hissed.

 

After Mr. Morgan left the meeting, some of the younger follow him. In store only three remained: Bly, along with two of his closest comrades, Michael Landon and Jason Mitchell. The three were confronted with vampires. Well, one of them had met directly. Bly was only one who felt the attacks of Alexander. Moreover hated him for personal reasons. Apparently it was true that Bly had feelings for me. He could not bear the thought between me and the vampire might have something. The thought maddened him and made him break everything stood before his eyes.

 

-Calm down, man!

-Don’t tell me what to do. She and the vampire… I will kill him.

-Maybe he used some of his tricks. But when we kill him everything will be as before.

-Yes. I want the blood of this wretch.

*Rose Garden* [chapter 8]

Early morning Mary woke me up. In her eyes I knew she knew what had happened. But how? How the hell she was learned? Someone could say that there are spies everywhere. No! There are not spies, but something else. I knew and decided to find out. I did not know whether she will tell me the truth, but I still try. I stood up slightly from the bed, but had to slow down because it made me dizzy. With a weak voice I asked my question.

 

-How do you do? How do you know what’s going on even when you’re not here? You have spies?

-Not spies. I have my way. Do you believe in magic, Christina?

-Spells? At the moment I can believe in everything. So through the magic you can eavesdrop and learn everything?

-Yes. Maybe you can say that. Someday I’ll show you. Now, however, you are tired of…

-You know that I give him blood, right?

-Yes. But he protected you. I can’t believe he did it.

-Why?

-He hates people in general. For him they are just food. He has long ago forgotten what it means to be human.

-I suppose so. But how old are they? All three of them.

-Celeste is the oldest. She is 728 years old. Then Alexander, who is 621 years old. Finally, Mason – 524 years.

 

I could not believe it. They were older than they look. Well, vampires never look as we expected. But this time I stopped thinking about it. I changed and went for breakfast. For the first time there were only sweets. Mary explained to me that in that way I will handle the blood lost faster. I admit that more delicious things I had not tasted. The woman smiled happily. She asked me if I can work. I nodded for yes, because I was slightly excited. And my mouth was full of sweet breakfast. I like a little kid, but it was not a problem for my aunt.

 

As we drove to the flower store, aunt Mary did not stop give me advices. That I should not overburden, that I need to rest until the anemia is over. I agreed just to calm her down. I was in unusually good mood. It seemed that I was drugged. Even I worked with pleasure. I leave Mary to deal with the documentation. She paying taxes and bills, but that everything was going great, and I did not stop to worry about my parents. Where were they? Why they’re not here and how can I contact with them? If I say that my anxiety was great it will be lie. On several occasions I asked Mary about it, but she always changed the subject. I was sure that she knows something. All she said was that they are not satisfied that I am in contact with vampires. Since I obtained the conclusion that they are aware of the immortals. I did not know what to think. When I came to the door with the correct answer, I discovered behind new three doors. What I’m trying to say is that I found myself still at an impasse. I knew nothing and nobody wanted to tell me the truth. I was really angry by that. I knew it was pointless, but I had no power over my emotions.

 

After lunch I did not feel very well. I almost fainted when arranged the flowers in the store. Mrs. Charles was frightened and made me go by taxi. Now at least I would not have to go with vampires. Not that I don’t like them, as crazy as it sounds. I just not am looking for trouble. The only thing that scared me when I went home was thought that Bly can return. But when I lay down on the sofa … asleep without to worry.

 

 

 

 

*Rose Garden* [chapter 7]

Posted in *Book* on 29/05/2012 by Soul Reaper

 

 

My mother gave me a message. Well, but not in the way that she was adopted it. She said to me that nobody else wanted to go. That the supply is very important. She spoke to me a bunch of stupid excuses. I asked just to make her stop the bullshit. I was not a child who can trick easier. But there was another reason to agree to this. Despite my fear and I was curious. Who was the woman of the house? More precisely… what was she?

 

They say that curiosity can create many problems. It’s true. Well, I did not know that. I just could not hold myself. Nothing was able to stop me. Even my own mind was not able to do so. It’ll sound strange, but we can say that I waited eagerly to the time for delivery. I could not know myself. Of course, I would not go as smoothly as I hoped. Soon it will become clear about what I speak.

I had taken the flowers from the store and headed to the parking. This time I take the car on my mother and she would be home with my father, who often stops into the store. Anyway, I put the flowers in the back seat and headed for the driver’s seat.  Suddenly Bly comes. Unlike out last meeting, now he has serious and far more confident. I would even say arrogant and rude. Take my right wrist and looked at me cold and imperious.

 

-Let me go, Bly! What are you doing?

-You saw the vampire.

-Yes. So what?

-You are not hurt. He does not even try. Why?

-How can I know?

-I can smell his scent on you. That is disgusting.

-Wait, wait! What are you talking about, damn it? He only took me to do not fell from the shock that you caused me. Now let me go, asshole. I have work to do.

-Why this time? Why in the dark?

-They requested flowers and I wear it. I do not care why.

 

I was angry and pulled my hang strongly. It hurt, but I was free. I pushed the boy from myself and walked to the car. I drove off immediately. I was angry. I almost bumped into a tree. Thank God, I got there on time. When I leaved the car I had to take a deep breath to calm down. The door was open and I went. This time I was much more confident. Probably the reason was because I was still angry at Bly and I do not think about the possible danger. Before I knew it I was standing at the door. This time I did not even ring. The door opened and before me stood the same beautiful woman. Now she looks at me with a smile. I was little troubled and felt my face flares up.

 

-Well… These are the flowers you want, Miss.

 

I handed her the bouquet. She took it with her beautiful white hands. Breathed their fragrance and delight.

 

-They are very beautiful. Do you want to come in, Miss?

-Well, I…

 

She gently pulled me inside. For some reason I had not resisted. Once the door closed behind me, I shuddered. I didn’t see anything. So I stayed in one place. The woman apparently had no problem with that. She noticed my difficulty and called Walter. She ordered him to light a few candles. The butler was surprised but said nothing, and fulfills the order. Light give more sinister look of the house, but was better than to stumble in the dark. The woman presented nicely. Her name was Celeste. I also introduce myself to her. She grabbed my hand and led me behind. I do not know why, but I started to worry.

 

She brought me into the living room. It was a huge room. There were two men. I do not know them, but one of them leave in me some feeling. Celeste made me sit down. I did it.

 

-Gentlemen, this is Miss Christina. She brought us red roses.

-Yes. Nice flowers.

-This is Mason. – The woman said and he nodded.

-Nice to meet you. – I muttered.

-And that there is Alexander. He always looks so serious and disinterested.

 

I hesitated for a moment because I wanted to ask them if there were vampires. I don’t know how she did it, but Celeste knew my intentions.

 

-Come on, lady. Ask us.

-Ask?

-Well, yes.

-You…

-Yes, we are vampires. – She said calmly.

 

In contrast, the other two looked startled. They did not expect it to reveal their secret to a stranger.

 

-What do you think about this, Christina?

-Well… I… It’s strange.

-Why?

-First werewolves and now – vampires.

 

At the mention of the word “werewolf” atmosphere in the house changes.

 

-Werewolves? Have you seen them?

-I… Yes. I do not know whether to say it but… I know one of them.

-You know any of these obnoxious animals?

 

She said this with evident repulsion. Apparently she was not a big fan of wolfish race.

 

-I thought that he is my friend but he behaved abominably to me.

-Why? Is he hurt you? – Her concern was fake, but it did not matter.

-No, not much. He was angry because someone from your kind helps me, if I may say so.

-Vampire? How looks like?

-I do not know, ma’am. I was in shock. For a little I did not become food for three werewolves. I did not see who helped me, and I do not know why he did it. No logic, right?

 

She did not answer, but I was sure that she knows the answer. I felt the tension rising, so I stood up. I asked them to excuse me, and then simmer to not get run over by the door. They do not try to stop me. And why should they? I and they were aware that this is not our last meeting. Running to the car, I dared not even look back. However, I felt that they watched me.

 

I got in the car, but did not drive off immediately. I needed to calm down. For this I have set my head on the steering wheel and closed my eyes. At all costs I had to calm down before I get home. But then something happened that I did not expect and that frightened me. When I raised my head I saw him. The vampire stood in the driver seat. I could not breathe.  And he just stood there and did not even look at me. I’m talking about vampire whose name was Alexander. I stood and watched him. What could I do? What did he want?

 

-Will you go now? – His voice sounded cold and distant.

-Why…?

-“The Park of Statues”.

-What?

-You like that place. Well, you are not the only one. Drive towards it.

-Werewolves?

-These dogs don’t scare me.

-Listen, sir. I am not your personal driver.

 

He did not answer. He turned to me and his eyes pierced me leaving me speechless. Suddenly, as under foreign control, I started it and drove off. I do not dare to resist more. I drove, and my heart was beating like crazy. We almost reached the goal when something stands in front of the car and I braked. I was very scared. I can’t say the same about the vampire. Alexander was rather annoyed. I tried to leave, but he (the vampire) stopped me with his hand. I saw his teeth and his red, fierce look.

 

-What happens? What was that?

-May one of your friends?

-Werewolves?

 

He nodded.

 

-Oh no! If Bly is there…

-I will kill him along with others. – He spoke quite seriously.

 

I was completely sure he was serious. But the strange was that nothing happened. They do not attacked us, not even appeared. On top of all Alexander was gone. I never thought and started it and drove off towards home. As I came back there was no one. I found a note which said that they went with some relatives and they do not know when will return. I was left enough money if I needed something I could take account of the store. On top of that I had to work in the store and take care of business. I began to wonder how many more surprises I will receive.

 

I made dinner for myself, bathed and sat down at the computer. I wrote to Sally and asked her to apologize. She replied cheerfully as ever. I was glad I asked her early in the morning to come home. She agreed. Then I went to bed. I fell asleep, but the nightmares were falling one after another. I woke up to 4:00 am covered with sweat. I was breathless and a little restless. Well, how else? So many things happened to me that now I would be crazy. I went to take a shower to refresh. Anyway, I could not sleep again. A few hours I walked up and down the house and wondering what to do. I tried to get in touch with my parents, but without success. Before dawn the doorbell rang. My surprise was mixed with a certain amount of fear. I walked slowly towards the door. I do not think that it was Sally because it was too early. On the other hand, vampires and their opponents the werewolves were not so stupid to come. I was wondering who can be. I took a breath and opened the door. Before me stood an old woman. She smiled at me. She wore a suitcase.

 

-Hello, Christina!

-What? Do I know you?

-Oh sorry! Probably you do not remember me. The last time when I saw you… You were a little girl. Maybe 3 or 4 years old.

-Please, come in!

-Thank you!

 

She went and I made her tea. She told me that she is a friend of my grandmother and my grandfather of the maternal side. Even showed me pictures. She told me that my parents had asked her to watch me and help me. I did not know this lady, but I was grateful. The name of this woman was Mary Charles. At 52 years, with silver-white hair piled in a bun, but I was more impressed by her eyes were gray and somewhat mysterious.

 

-Tell me something about the city, Christina. Is there anything interesting?

 

I wondered. There were interesting things. But who would believe me? And I do not want to have problems, but exactly what would happen. So I carefully chose to deflect my questions.

 

-Well, I would not say.

-Are you sure?

-I don’t understand.

-I heard that Celeste was in town.

 

I shudder with surprise. The hairs on my neck goosebumps. I could feel drops of sweat beading on my forehead.

 

-Calm down, dear. I know what’s going on here. The problem between vampires and werewolves.

-I…

-You’re in quite a disadvantage.

-And you know it, ma’am?

-Yes. – She smiled. – Please call me Mary. “Madam” sounds very formal.

-Okay. I’ll call you “Aunt Mary”. So okay?

-Absolutely. Now tell me what think to do?

-Well, my best friend will come and I can share her all. She will help me in the store. As long as she agree, of course.

-You sure? I don’t think Celeste would approve.

-I do not ask her to gets me into this.

-Don’t you realize? She revealed her secret with purpose. You are too righteous to revealing her secret.

-I had not thought about that. – I raised an eyebrow as a sign of astonishment.

-There is something else.

-What?

-The vampire who helps you in “Park of Statues” was Alexander.

 

My breath stopped. My pupils expanded and my heart racked in my chest. I could not understand. He held me like I am nothing, but now it appears that he has helped me. I felt a little uncomfortable. How would I look at him after what happened? I mean, he almost licked my neck. He knew it from the outset and still didn’t care. Its looks like that is not for the first time for him. For him was common and insignificant.

 

I plunged into my own thought and I did not realize when Sally came. She stood and watched me with her usual curious expression. I almost jumped when I saw her.

 

-How long have you here, Sally?

-Enough to know you’re thinking of someone. Who is he? Bly?

-No. There is none. At least Bly.

-Why do you say that? Not have quarreled?

-Something likes that. The last time he was really rude to me.

-I can’t believe it. But I’m sure that you would not ever invent such a thing. Well, tell me.

-My parents left. The woman you saw will help me, but I need help in the store too. If you have not another job… I will pay you.

-I will help you with pleasure. You’re my best friend.

 

My heart broke with grief that I had to lie. Because to hide something is tantamount to lying. But Mary was right. I was entrusted with a big secret and I had no right to give up. I felt torn.

 

While getting ready, Mary and Sally talked. Someone knock on the door and I went to open. It was Bly. I was not happy to see him. And seeing me he started to fidget. Got my by the wrist and yanked me sharply.

 

-His smell is on you. The smell of damn vampire.

-Nonsense.

-You were in the car with him.

-So you were there? You blocked my path and nearly bumped.

-Yes. What you have with them? Where are they hiding?

-Go to hell. I have nothing to say.

 

My hand hurt badly. Then came Sally and my new aunt. They forced him to let me and to get out.  I had to bandage my right hand. However, I don’t give up from my job. In this case I was not scared or worried, but rather angry. I could not believe this idiot afford to behave this way.

 

Sally had to drive a car. We went to the store and started work. It was pretty awkward because regular customers did not stop to ask me the questions of whose answers I was interested: <Where are my parents?> I could not tell them why lie. That what choice did I have? There was something else. I just kept wondering how Mary knows about vampires. I thought that she would not answer, even if I had asked. In fact, she bothered me a little. She knew me well and I did not know anything about her. I should be very careful. On top get another call from the vampires. This time my new “nanny” answered. She promised to go… both of us. Sally was curious, but not learns anything. It seemed to be disappointed, but said nothing. She continues as if nothing happened. I was surprised from her reaction, but only smiled. However, she helped me a lot. So when she asks me to let her go earlier I don’t protest. So ultimately there was just me and Mrs. Charles.

 

-Aunt?

-Yes, Chris?

-Maybe is not good idea to go on that place.

-No. They want you to go there.

-But…

-Prepare yourself. I’ll drive.

 

I began to feel as if I did not have any option about my own live. Always someone else decided for me. I hated it more than anything, but I had not the courage to oppose it. This was now. I got in the car without much fuss, but this time not in the driving seat. I could relaxed and to stop thinking about everything. I could forget everything but the pain in my hand did not stop to remind me that everything is real.

 

While I watched the lights along the road, I don’t noticed how the woman watching me. I don’t saw her smile. This lady… she thinking something, but what was it? I wondering what she hide it? Where did she come from? What is her past? What relation she had with these creatures of darkness? Even I was not thinking what I could find. And maybe I must found out.  How could I live with someone for whom I don’t know anything? Suddenly I was scared. Then I realized that the car doesn’t move. Even Mary was waiting outside with flowers in her hands. I came down with visible reluctance. I followed her like a submissive puppy without any real reason. On the door the old butler already waits for us. He ushered us into the dark living room. There waiting for was and the three immortals. The woman looked at me a little confused. No doubt the reason was my injured hand. She looked at me, waiting to tell her what happened, but I said nothing. However, her eyes became somewhat fierce. I realized that she already knows. She was reading my mind and knew who was to blame for what happened. I thought she was calm, but she wasn’t. For a second she grabbed a crystal vase and broke it into pieces when threw it to the wall. The attendees, including myself, could not stay startled by the sudden change. Celeste cursed something in her native language. Mason tried to calm her, but not only failed, but received a severe blow, which referred him to the nearest wall. I was afraid and took a step toward, but Alexander stopped me. He stood before me. I felt that he trying to protect me.

 

Then Celeste looked at me.

 

-Tell me which one was it? Which of these dogs hurt you?

-I… It’s not important.

-He was the one who was your friend, right? He did it because of us, right?

-Don’t deny it, my girl! – Mary said. – Either way she will read your mind. Yes, Celeste. He hurt and girl and it’s your fault, but I don’t think that child here can’t handle it.

 

This began to annoy me terribly. It was like I was a child, and all just so concerned with me like that. And I wasn’t a child anymore.

 

-Enough! – I said. – I am not a child! Leave me alone. This problem is my business. Well, we let the flowers. Let’s go, aunt!

-No, Chris!

-As you wish. You know where I live.

 

I left without care about others’ options. Since I cannot drive, I walked away. It wasn’t cleaver thing, but when I was angry I don’t care. I walked in the darkness trying to follow the way in which we had come. I was not thinking about the danger that lurked. The whole time I had the feeling that someone follows me. At one point I stopped because a few meters from me, walked some strange men. My heart beating fast from fear. The things are not improved. They saw me and smiled half-heartedly. There was nowhere to escape, but I was not sure whether to continue. They were about ten meters from me when something unexpected happens. A hand wrapped around me, enveloping me. I looked for a moment. It was Alexander. He made me keep moving. He did not say anything and just pushed me. I left without asking questions. I already knew that it was a waste of time. We walked past the men and they weren’t very happy that the man was with me. At this point I don’t realize it, but once they are gone far enough I understand it. How he knew where I was? How did he know that I have not taken a taxi? And why he always appeared when I needed from help?

 

He sends me to my home. For a moment I thought, but then I invited him to come if he wants. Well, he did not object. I did it of pure kindness. I was nervous. However, in my home was a vampire. It sounded crazy, even in my mind. I did not know what to suggest. I don’t know why, but suddenly I felt strange. As if a voltage appears at me. Soon came and the reason.  And his name was: Bly McLane. He was furious when he saw the vampire. In contrast, however, Alexander seemed perfectly calm. He did not even flinch. Bly attacked him, but a moment later he was lying on the floor across the room. He barely breathing, but did not give up. He tried to stand but failed immediately. When Alexander was about to proceed, I stopped him as I stood before him, and almost hugged him. He gave up just because he gets bored. I asked Bly to leave. Although I was certainly mad of him, I did not want to be killed because of me.

 

-You’re crazy! – He shouted. – To invite a vampire in your home. Murderer!

-I don’t hurt my friends. – The face of the vampire does not even flinch.

-Oh, a vampire with a conscience! Don’t make me laugh, nasty bloodsucker!

-Stop it! Both of you. This is my home, and I will invite whom I want. But I will not allow such behavior. I thought you are my friend, Bly. You hurt me and I don’t talk just about the hand.

-Are you defending him?

-Just because he helped me. Now get out of here. Both of you.

-Slut! – Bly shouted.

 

This time Alex kicked him in the ribs without mercy. The werewolf roared in pain. Then came one of his companions. And because his appearance was unexpected and sudden, he managed to repel the vampire. But he was fast and slightly fuzzy. After a moment both of wolfish kind had disappeared. I noticed that the vampire was not in good condition. He was not hurt and still there had something. I approached him and saw his real face. He growled to stay away.  I knew I had to stay away. That I must listen to him. I could not stop.  I knew what he needed. Blood. My mind screamed <Stop, idiot! Run!>, but my heart and my body did not obey. Then I found myself with back on the floor. He (the vampire) had leaned over me and his hair descends upon my face. My heart would burst. I didn’t dare to move. Alex was even closer. I felt his breath on my neck. It happen the same as when we met for the first time. Ran his tongue in my neck to soften the skin. Then I felt his teeth burrow. It hurt for a while. Then I closed my eyes and found myself in a strange place. It was bright and full with flowers. Garden perhaps? The flowers were red roses. The smell was indescribable. I went to the flowers, but something stopped me. He made me go back. I opened my eyes and I was in my bed. Instinctively I touched my neck. There was not even a trace. Only memory of what happened. I tried to stand up, but I had no strength. Finally I sat up slightly, but his hand knocked me back.

 

-Lay down. You’re weak.

-I saw the garden.

-The garden? Oh, yes! It doesn’t matter. You must rest now.

-The wound is gone.

-It’s healing.

 

I tried to say something else, but he doesn’t give me a chance. He did something with his hand and I fell asleep. Deep, deep sleep. Despite everything that happened, I was calm. I did not know why. It was not normal, but I could not change it. Now I felt different. Somewhat close to the vampire. I think this is normal.

 

Alexander stood for some time sitting next to my bed. For him it was a bit strange, because until now he had not behaved well with anyone. In this human way, I mean. For many years he did not know that. He had forgotten what it means to be human. And he does not want to know, because had long ago ceased to be human. For this reason he left. He wanted to forget about this passing weakness. The question was whether he would be able to achieve this?

 

He went into the house in which he lived. Avoid meeting with the others occupants of the house. Gathered in the crypt and go to bed, though it was early. He could not sleep. Something tortured him and even he could not understand. Suspected to be due to my blood. For a moment, he began to regret that he is drunk, but then just shook his head. A slight smile appeared on his otherwise serious face. Even thought that this blood was returned to a piece of his lost humanity. The vampire knew well that this will continue for a while. However, if someone saw him at this point would be very surprised. He did not seem the same like before. This he called “the effect of human drug.”

 

Lying, he touched his scarlet lips and the memory of warm blood streaming down his throat made him shiver. This excited him and his mind never stopped to revealing images and sensations sealed in his memory. Even when he felt the dawn, he just fell asleep without stopping his thoughts. But vampires do not dream. Or so I heard.

*KnightsL Did I Mention That They Are Vampires?* [chapter 3]

Posted in *Book* on 28/05/2012 by Soul Reaper

Once the sun rose, grandmother and Laurie appeared in the kitchen. Surprised to see grandfather there. Laurie hugged him, then the grandparents went into another room to hold a conversation. I was curious. I serve breakfast on my sister and sneak into the small corridor. I heard a lot of conversation. Only some fragments such as: ‘dangerous’, ‘hunting’, ‘demons’ or something. Allegedly stormed the room accidentally.

 

-Is there a problem? – I asked.

-No, dear! – Grandma smiled, but her eyes issue it. – Your grandfather will stay here for awhile.

-This is great news.

-Kate…

-What is it, Grandma?

-I spoke with your boss at the shop and she agreed to reduce the change in the store.

-Why? What happened? – is already weird.

-Do not you remember?  You… I mean you and Laurie, you have to prepare for school.

-Oh yes!

 

     I clapped my forehead with my hand because I had really forgotten about it. Summer School? It would be… unpleasant. As I announced that to my sister and she was so delighted as I am. So she eats it quickly, grabbed my hand and led me to my room. Yes, the room was mine, but Laurie often slept there. As I said, we went into the room. My sister is buried in my closet. She started to look for appropriate clothing.

 

-Come on, Laurie! I will wear as usual. You’re the one that puts more… modern.

-You’re right. – She came up to me and kissed me on the cheek. – Thanks for breakfast.

 

     I thought she would leave, but she did not. In fact, she shut the door and sat on the bed to the wall. She looked at me with a slight smile.

 

-Well? It was Terry, right?

-Huh?

-Last night on the phone.

-Oh yes! He heard that Mom and Dad leave after the repair.

-You both still go out?

-We never go out… officially.

-But you know he’s in love with you, right?

-I don’t think so. But even so be it… You know him, right? He thinks I’m his property.

-I know what you say. I went out with him all week.

 

     I lifted eyebrows and rolled my eyes. Laurie laughed, then me too. We have prepared our backpacks with a notebook and pens. Additional hours starting at 11:00 noon and ending at 15:00 in the afternoon. We had time, but Laurie made me go earlier. She was right.
