Doesn’t my method of dealing with my thirst sound flawless? It’s not. I slipped up, once.It was an accident. She lost her life... Not literally, sorry, she lost her life, as in her human life.
Her name was Sophie-Olivia Reynolds. One day I dropped through someone’s sky light with just the average prospect on my mind I had to do unfortunately. It was that timeagain, time to feed. My timing was beautiful, my landing perfectly executed, breathing stopped for maximum agility (vampires don’t necessarily have to breathe). Something went wrong though. I heard her coming; she was coming upstairs, why? She washaving a meal, this was completely against fate (vampires can also see fate’s path) and yet here she was. I desperately tried to break the skylight. Sophie walked into thebathroom and stopped dead. Just as she went to scream I was there. Right arm around her neck left covering her mouth. “I swear to your God if you scream it will be the last noise you will ever make ok?”
She nodded. “Now you’re going to listen to me and meonly never mind what they’re doing down stairs, still with me?” Again she nodded.“Good, right what you are going to do is stand very still, when I let you go you will doexactly as I say. You are going to flush the toilet. Next you will walk down stairs whileneatening your shirt. You will sigh when you get to the bottom and say ‘right where werewe’ and laugh I removed my hand from her mouth and whispered “what do you say?” “Ok?” She whispered, I nodded. “I wasn’t going to scream but are you going to kill me? I mean you are a vampire and everything, just don’t let it hurt, please?” “I…What?”
I questioned, bewildered.
“Drinking my blood.” She stated quite simply. It was as if she came across our kind all the time and knew us well.“How…I…mean…how did you…know?”
“The skin, the cold, dead, eyes, the amazing agility. The key signs of a vampire.” Sheshrugged.“You’ve been reading up.” I sighed and took another step forwards towards her. “But you’re wrong I’ll not kill you, nor drain your blood, it’s not what I do.” I smiled.“You don’t drink blood? You weren’t here to…” She trailed off, rolling her hand as if tosay ‘go on…’ “Well I do and yes I was here to…you know. But I didn’t know you’d be here, not now I mean.” “By that you mean you would have done had I not known you were here, is that it?” She interrogated.
