They are doing it again. By it I mean fighting. My mom and dad. They are fighting over their money problems. But I’m fine with it now. Now I don’t care. I learned how to deal with things like this the hard way and so I don’t get upset about these type of things. But I still needed to get out of the house because why hear it when you don’t have to so that is why I’m knocking on my best friend Katie’s door. I ring the door bell like a gazillion times not caring if it annoys her mum or her tool of a brother. I feel sorry for them some times. Like they do have to put up with me like all the time. Coz I am here all the time. More at Katie’s house then I am in my own. The door swung open aggressively and I see Jimmy holding it looking not so happy. Not that he ever does look happy. But I am so used to it now. ‘ hey Jim Joe! Whats crakalakin my home bud? ‘ I have my own nick name for him and use it all the time because it annoys him. We always annoy each other. Its what we do. You would swear we were only 6 years old but no. he is actually two years older then me so you would think he would be mature. But no . but it wouldn’t be fun if he was like that. He rolled his eyes and stepped aside so I could walk in. He shut the door behind me and stood over me towering me because he knows my disadvantage. My disadvantage being small. But hey I can still kick some ass when necessary. ‘ why don’t you run along now and go play barbies with my sis.’ he said looking down at me as if
I was a little kid. ‘ we might just to that. At liest we get to see ken’s fine bod. Unlike yours.. Which I have seen plenty times in many occasions. And you disappointed me. Its not that impressive. Looks like your gonna have to work a bit harder big guy!’ I smirked and stood up tall. He went red at the memory. I did actually see his bod and I lied. It was quite impressive but it would be the last thing on my mind to let him know that. He was gob smacked and clearly couldn’t think of a come back so I scooted pass him and ran up the stairs then I heard him speak again. ‘ oh don’t lie. I know you want me.’ ha! How lame was that! You think he would come up with something better than that. I walked back down a step so he could see my face, ‘ oh Jim Joe. I am getting quite tired of your pathetic ways of trying to flirt with me. I suggest you google on it some more because frankly you are starting to bore me.’ I said with a long loud yawn and putting my hand over my mouth. I laughed as I turned back and started heading toward Katie’s room. I heard Jimmy mutter bad words under his breath with annoyance. That made me laugh harder. I stopped laughing when I walked into Katie’s bedroom. She was reading a magazine and lying on her stomach. She put down the magazine when she saw me. ‘ hey whats up my darlin? ‘ she said smiling. I shrugged as if bored and said ‘ oh you know the usual. Mom and dad are fighting. What ever. I don’t care. ‘ she didn’t believe it though. I could tell by her face. ‘ yeah yeah sure sure. I don’t believe you. Under all your mocho I know you care.’ she said nodding enthusiastically. I snickered at that. ‘ me? Are you sure you are talking about me?’ I asked curiously. She nodded again.’ sure am. Do you remember when we were 5 and we
were playing in the school yard and you started kicking this boy Thomas because he called me a icky smelly girly.’ she laughed at the memory. I smiled. Good el times. ‘ those were the days. Anyway whats your point?’ she smiled and continued. ‘ well I remember him tripping over a sharp rock and then cutting his leg and then it started to bleed. ‘ she said beaming as if she discovered a mystery. ‘ yeah that was so gross! But again I say whats your point?’ I said still curious. ‘ my point is, is that I remember you feeling terrible. I know you didn’t mean to hurt him. And you didn’t want to. And I remember how sad you looked. ‘ she said absolutely chuffed with herself because she now thought she has taken a long deep look in to my soul and all that mumbo jumbo stuff. ‘ oh come on Katie. I was five. So what if I was sad for the kid. Anyway. You are boring me now. I think I might have a party with your brother if you don’t quit it out. Now lets talk about something else. ‘ I said knowing that would grab her attention. ‘ ok fine. I guess we could talk about-’ she didn’t finish her sentence and she just dazed at the wall for like 1 minute and then she jumped with a huge smile on her face. Oh no not that smile! She has the I got a idea face on. Those ideas never usually turn out great. Then she was jumping up and down with excitement. ‘ oh Hannah oh Hannah! I have such a great idea! Instead of just chatting all day we can go out! Like to a club tonight! Come on! After all it is summer! ‘ she screeched with excitement.’ ugh! But I don’t have any nice clothes and where would we go exactly? ‘ I asked. ‘ I know exactly were we can go. Do you remember my cousin Martin? Well me and him are super close and he told me about this club- well actually he didn’t mean to actually
tell me, it just slipped out by accident and I made him tell me more about it. Anyway this club is top secret and its super hot. And I think we should go.’ she said grinning like she won the lotto. ‘ are you mad? If it’s a secret club then they wont let us in!’ I said eyes wide. ‘ all I have to do is say I’m a cousin of Martin and we are in. look don’t worry about it. But the only thing is, I remember Martin telling me its sort of like a goth club and stuff like that. But it should be fun so…why not huh?’ she said looking hopeful. ‘ oh sure it’s a adventure so why not. Im all about the unknown baby! ‘ I said and we giggled. ‘ ok so now it’s a trip to my closet. When I’m finished with you, you are gonna look smoking hot baby!’ she said dragging me to her closet. Mission accomplished! We stared at ourselves in the mirror. Smoking hot wouldn’t be far of. We were all dressed in black and make up and everything was done. We grinned at each other and gave each other a high five and then decided to get going. We were just going to the living room to tell her mom that we were going. We walked in and Jimmy didn’t look up because he was to busy being engrossed by the T.V but her mom certainly had a good look at us and from what I could tell, not to happy about it either. ’ what are you two girls wearing? Were are you going to have to dress like that?’ yup I was right. She was not to happy. I looked down at what I was wearing. Black dress fitted tightly but nicely against my skin. It looked like it was part of my skin to be exact. Then I felt Jimmy looking at me so I looked up at him. His mouth was hanging open and I put a hand on my hip waiting for him to wake up. He met my eyes eventually and I stuck out my
tongue. No need to be awkward around Jimmy. That would be no good. He went red and turned back to the T.V ’ mom! There is nothing wrong with what we are wearing and we are going out because Hannah has not had a good day and I think the best thing to do for her would be to go out and have some fun and please don’t try argue with me because I’m old enough now to be making my own decisions and soon I will be eighteen so just please trust me.’ she said all grown up. Her mums face softened and I could tell she was going to give in. ‘ fine. Go. Have fun girls.’ she said smiling. Oh we will have fun, I thought to myself smiling. Then a chill went down my spine and it didn’t feel like a good one. It felt almost like a warning. Oh well. This girl is all about the unknown baby! ‘ are you ready?’ I asked Katie as she fixed her red lipstick. ‘ yeah are you? Oh and remember you are my cousin also.’ she said nervously. We got out of the car and I brushed all the dog hairs of my dress. Katie’s dog Kismit is always brought in the car. So hence the dog hairs on my dress. I don’t mind though because I love animals. Especially taking pictures of them. The only thing that Jimmy and I have in common is the fact that we love photography and we both actually take the same class on Wednesday. In fact it’s the only time when the two of us get along with each other. No fights. No bickering and no threatening from me having to kick his ass. Its weird actually how quick we bounce back to all the messing again as soon as we walk out the door. I turned my head left and saw the big black sign. The club was called Black persuasion . Well that sounds inviting. While I was looking at the sign I walked straight into a puddle causing
water to splash all over my lower legs. Also my black heals. ‘ aww no! I need to go to the bathroom to clean this of. ‘ I muttered angrily. ‘ once we get in you can. Now stand up tall. As tall as you can please.’ she laughed knowing my weakness. I threw her a daggered look only to make her laugh harder. We were now walking up to the man with a black suit with all those type of wires and stuff in his ears. He’s really big and the type you don’t want to mess with. But he has to have a soft spot. Lets find out. ‘ hello. I am sorry but I do not recognise you two ladies. Are you lost?’ he said in his deep manly voice. ‘ no actually this is the place we are looking for. You know my cousin Martin Sanders? Well he told me about this place and I just had to check it out, you know? And all those other places that are in just don’t do it for us. But this place is meant for us. ‘ she said convincingly. He didn’t look convinced but I could tell he was thinking about it but then he shook his head. ‘ no I am afraid not. These type of people in there are not people you want to mess with and you two ladies are to helpless and to innocent.’ he said crossing his arms. I decided to try then. After all we came out all this way so might as well. I walked up closer to him. Real close. And started fluttering my eye lashes. ‘ oh but please sir . We are bad girls when necessary. We can handle ourselves.’ I stepped back and put a hand on my hip with the expression on my face that said I don’t give a shit. He looked at both of us back and forward and sighed. ‘ alright fine. Go on in but please don’t bring any attention on to yourselves.’ he said seriously. I had to keep reminding myself not to jump up and down with the excitement. I nodded and grabbed Katie by the arm and he opened the black door for us. I
turned around to give him a wink and he went red and had to shake himself up a little. Well that was fun. The place was so dark. No surprise there. There was a dance floor with nobody on it. People were just sitting down and chatting. I glanced around the place for a bathroom. I found one at the other end of the club. ‘ I have to go to the bathroom. Will you get me a drink, with lots and lots of alcohol in it please?’ I said shouting over the heavy music. Katie nodded and I went to the bathroom. The bathroom was nice. There was even a leather sofa in it. I grabbed some of the paper and put the tap on to soak it. I washed and dried my legs quickly and as I was putting the paper in the bin something caught my eye. It was some type of wipes in a basket. Oh great. I could of just used them. I picked one up and read what it said on it. Easy wipe. For vampires who have accidents. this has to be some kind of joke. I bet this club believes in vampires and all those mythical jokes. How sad! I put one wipe in my bag to show Katie later on for a laugh. A lady came in just as I was coming out. And oh my was she beautiful. She smiled friendly. And held the door for me politely. ’ my my what do we have here? Are you here for business little girl?’ she said in a intimidating voice. What is she on about business? Does she think I’m some kind of hooker? How gross! ’ I don’t know what your talking about but if you will excuse me, I have somebody waiting for me.’ I said standing tall and chin high. No one is going to make me feel like crap with out my consent. She nodded as if understanding and stood back to let me free.’ I see. You have already been claimed. Sorry to bother you. I didn’t know. ’ she said smiling apologetically. What in gods name is up with this
crazy chick? Is she high or something? I walked out of the bathroom completely dazed and clueless. I started walking faster and faster and looked around quickly to see if I could find Katie. Where is she? I hope she hasn’t bumped into anybody weird like that crazy chick in the bathroom. I found her sitting down at a table in the corner by herself. I kept my eyes on her and started to quicken my pace. So fast that I didn’t notice the step and that caused me to be flying toward the ground. I brought my arms to shield my face automatically and waited for the crash to happen. But it didn’t. instead I felt strong arms hold me gently. I looked up at my saver. It was a boy. Around my age maybe. He looked like a devil. He looked like a god! But a bad one! Just my type of guy. And he wasn’t smiling. He actually looked pissed of! Oh well maybe not my guy. I found my feet quickly and pushed myself up. ’ whoopsie’s ! ‘ I said giggling trying to lighten the awkwardness and trying to get that angry face of his to disappear. It didn’t work. He looked somehow angrier! ‘ watch were your going you clumsy human!’ he said narrowing his eyes. That bastard! What the hell is wrong with these people. They think they are super human or something. I stood up tall and put on my threatening face and stomped on his foot with my heal causing him to yelp in pain. Thankfully the music was so loud that barely anybody noticed. He was bent down trying to get his breathing back to normal. I patted him on the back as if I would to a friend and whispered in his ear. ‘ thank you so much for catching me. Its deeply appreciated. You should really get some ice for that foot or its gonna swell up like a balloon. Bye now. ‘ I said giggling as if it was all a joke. He looked up at me and gave me a dagger
look. I smiled at him wider and started to walk over to Katie who has obviously seen everything because she has her hand on her mouth trying to stop herself from laughing. I sat down beside her and smiled an innocent smile. ‘ trust you Hannah. We are only here 5 minutes and you manage to beat someone up.’ she said making tut tut noises. I shrugged and looked around and said.’ it was so not my fault this time. People here are really creepy. I don’t remember your cousin being this creepy. A woman in the toilet asked me if I was open for business! Like what the hell is up with that? Is this some kind of hooker place? Is there something your not telling me?’ I asked now suspicious if Katie was really into this sort of thing. She shook her head seriously.’ oh god no Hannah! Jeez! But I know what you mean. the bartender asked which clan I came from! isn’t that like a vampirey thing?’ she asked and I saw her shiver. ‘ yeah a clan is like a vampire family thing, I think. Its been a while since I read Dracula. Not that I ever read it actually. I just saw the movie but I dunno. ‘ I said thinking. Then I remembered the wipes and I took them out to show Katie. I handed them to her and she read it with googly eyes. She looked back up at me with wonder. I shrugged. ‘ maybe these people are wanna be vamps. I heard about them before. On the internet I came across something like that.’ I said nodding . Katie nodded then to. ‘ yeah maybe that’s it. Anyway it should be some fun right?’ she said hopeful. God bless her. She was just trying to make me feel better about the money situation. I smiled at her. I looked down at the table and saw that she didn’t buy any drinks. ‘ why didn’t you get any drinks?’ I asked. She looked down in embarrassment. ‘ oh its just I forgot.
The bar tender is super hot. ‘ she said grinning like a child. ‘ that’s ok. Ill just get some now. What do you want? ‘ I said standing up. ‘ umm water please. I don’t want to get drunk and wake up in the morning and find that I’m in bed with a motor bike dude or anything.’ she said. I laughed. ‘ I agree with you on that.’ I said and walked over to the bartender. Katie was right. He is good looking. Not as hot as the messed up guy that I ran into though. Such shame really. I sat on the stool waiting for him to come over. He came over right away and he was smiling. Thank god. ‘ can I help you? Or are you here to be helping somebody else?’ he asked politely. What the hell? Again weird! I decided to go along with it. ‘ uhh no actually I’m not here on business tonight. Can I have two glasses of water please?’ he nodded understanding and fished out two glasses. He handed them to me so fast that I nearly thought I was going to faint. I said thanks and was about to walk when I heard him speak to me again. ‘ wait! Come here a sec will you?’ he pleaded. I turned back around to face him. He had his hand out to give me a leaflet. I took it and said ‘ uhh thanks.’ he smiled. ‘ no problem. Hope to see you soon.’ he said then turned back to serve another guy. I walked back over to Katie and handed her the drink and I sat down. I put the leaflet on the table, not bothering to look at it. Katie’s eyebrow went up when she saw the leaflet. ‘ I dunno what it is. The bartender gave it to me. Maybe his number is on it for you. He knows I’m with you.’ I shrugged as if bored. Katie took a sip of her water and picked up the piece of paper to read it. I watched her as she read it to herself. Her eyes got wider and wider with I don’t know, shock or surprise? ‘ well? Is it his number or what?’ I asked snapping my fingers in front
of her face to get her attention. She shook her head and looked up at me with worried eyes. ‘ what’s the matter?’ I asked now worried. She handed me the leaflet without a word and I read what was on it. It said ; Want to be a donor? No need to work anymore. Lots of money will come your way and all you have to do is simple. Donate your blood. Its safe and contract available. If you enquire more information please speak with staff. Many thanks from Black Persuasion. This is crazy! Around all the writing was vampire fangs. But that was just a gimmick. Its just a little ironic. I put down the leaflet and looked a Katie. She was still a little shaken. She pursed her lips trying to think. ‘ you don’t think they mean vampires do you? ‘ she asks in a whisper. I shook my head smiling. ‘ no, I think it might be for some sort of charity thing. You know donate blood. My dad used to donate his blood and he used to get money from it. I wonder how much?’ I started to daze of when Katie interrupted me. ‘ your not thinking about contacting these loonies are ya?’ she screeched. People turned to stare. But I ignored them. ‘ relax darlin. No I wasn’t. I’m just curious is all.’ I said trying to calm her down. She nodded and sat back down in her seat and relaxed a little. I looked around again trying to figure this place out. I noticed something I hadn’t notice before. There are many doors. Not just to the toilet but to other places as well. I wonder if it leads you to another club or something. ‘ where are you going?’ Katie asked when I stood up. ‘ come on, come with me. I want to check this place out.’ I said and she nodded unenthusiastically. I walked over to where the many closed
doors where and closed my eyes and walked over to a random door. I opened my eyes and turned to see if Katie was with me. She grabbed my arm and clung on to it while I opened the door. I began walking in but I froze in my tracks. There was a man eating a women! Well maybe not eating. More like drinking. There was blood coming everywhere from her neck and her eyes were closed. The poor girl is unconscious! Katie stifled a quiet cry and I put my hand over her mouth to hush her. She looked up at me with worried eyes and began to tug and my arm to leave. Not yet I told her with my eyes. I wrestled her arm of me and I stepped forward into the room. I grabbed what came to my eyes first. A lamp. It was heavy. It will do. I went from behind the murderer and whacked him on top of the head with the lamp. I expected him to fall onto the bed unconscious but I was very wrong. It was like I barley touched him. But I did. I put a lot of force into that swing. He stopped sucking from the girl and turned to glare at me. Blood all over his mouth. It was disgusting! I thought I was going to barf right there. The girl rose up and looked pissed of. ’ what the hell are you doing? You interrupted us you little bitch! I’m going to kill you!’ she snarled. What the hell! I was only trying to save her! The man continued to glare at me with vicious black eyes but I stood ready to fight. He scared me then by raising his teeth up into a curl to expose his white teeth. No. white fangs with blood smeared all over them. And that’s all I remember. Oh wait no. I do remember hurting my ass as I fell to the ground unconscious. Because I fainted! I think it was the fangs that made me faint but I don’t know. Maybe it was the whole night experience. Anyhow I knew I fainted because I woke
up in a room I did not recognise. I was on a sofa. I could see Katie on a chair across the room talking to the bartender. Not the murderer. She didn’t look scared though so I felt relieved. ‘ look I don’t know why she fainted coz she’s the toughest person I know. But she was just trying to save that woman. So how is that committing a crime? Huh?’ she said standing up. The bartender had his hands in fists trying to keep his anger down. ‘ that vampire was one of our best clients and now he may not ever come back again!’ he said slamming his fists against the table. I stood up now to protect my friend. ‘ what do you mean vampire client? Why does everyone obsess over being a vampire? They do not exist! They are myths!’ I was shouting now. This is so ridiculous! The man walked over to me now turning his attention on me. ‘ I thought you are a donor!’ he shouted. ‘ what do you mean donor? Is this about that leaflet you gave me? I thought that was for charity!’ I shouted back. He came closer. Face furious. ‘ no! vampires! How did you get in here?’ he gritted his teeth with anger. ‘ we have our people.’ I said smartly leaning back. He grabbed me by the wrist and grabbed Katie to. I started to protest by kicking and hitting and shouting not nice things but he didn’t budge once. He led us into another door. Behind the door was another dark room. Lots of leather stuff. There was a light coming from the massive fish tank. It lit up the whole room.’ what are you doing Louie? I told you I was not thirsty. ’ the sound made me jump. It was a man. I could barely see the figure at the end of the darkened room. It was sort of like in the god father with the man sitting in his chair in his office. He turned on the lamp and I could see his face. He was in his thirties. He looked
sad. At liest not angry. He looked at me from Katie and then to Louie. He raised his eyebrow waiting for an explanation. ’ sorry boss. I just don’t know what to do with these two. This one attacked one of our clients tonight. While he was feeding. Apparently they don’t know about our world.’ Louie said looking ashamed. Look what happens when I try to do some justice in this world! The mans face didn’t alter. He was expressionless. Almost bored. ’ who sent you? Are you a vampire hunter? ’ he asked me. I clenched my teeth with frustration. ‘ what are you talking about? All I was trying to do was save that women from being attacked!’ I shouted. His face still remained the same. His sad white face. He could really do with a tan. He should really go on a holiday. Get out more. ‘ I don’t think you realise what you have done little girl. You have committed a crime. You will have to repay me somehow.’ he said simply. I took a deep breath. that’s right. In and out. In and out. I closed my eyes and pursed my lips trying to calm myself down. Hitting this guy would clearly be a bad idea. So just remain calm when speaking. ‘ please explain to me how I have committed a crime.’ I said keeping my voice normal. He rested his head on his fists. Keeping it civilised. ‘ well that client is one of our best. And you attacked him. That is simply one of the highest crimes around here. What don’t you understand?’ he said looking at me the whole time waiting for me to speak. ‘I get it. I do. I get that it is bad attacking a client but I thought he was eating a poor women. So how is that bad?’ I said putting a hand on my hip. ‘ that women was getting paid a lot for what she was doing. Being a donor. She is getting paid to be bitten by a vampire. So she is not the
victim in this situation. My client is. ‘ he said now. A little angrier but still keeping his calm. ‘ vampires aren’t real! They don’t exist! In books and movies they do but that’s it! Why are all you people so crazy!’ I shrieked. ‘ is that so? Then how do you explain this? ‘ he asked amused now. I was about to ask him by what he meant. Explain what? But then he showed me his teeth like the murderer did. They were normal. Well nice actually. Really white and straight. Then fangs popped out. And Louie caught me when I wobbled a bit. He smiled when he saw my reaction and then the fangs went and they were normal teeth again. ‘ believe us now?’ he asked still amused. I nodded not able to find my voice. I turned around to look at Katie and she seemed to be scared. Louie pulled out two chairs and told us to sit down. We obeyed without a word. ‘ so what do we do now huh? Well I think we can find something for you two girls to repay us. ‘ the man said resting his chin on his fists again. I got a bad feeling from his words and I started to fiddle in my seat. ‘ wait! Your not going to kill us are you?’ I whimpered. He shook his head and I was relieved. At liest we are not going to die. ‘ no not going to kill you. But you are going to repay us. You two are going to work for me. ‘ uh no! this doesn’t want to make me get out of bed in the morning. ‘ work how? ‘ I asked giving in. Katie stayed silent. I almost forgot she was there. Smart girl. He grinned at the question. ‘ well you,’ he said to Katie. ‘ Katie is her name. You know she does have a name.’ I said before he could go on. ‘ Katie then will work on the bar with Louie. And you,’ he stopped waiting for me to say my name. ‘ Hannah.’ I said simply. ‘ Hannah you will be a donor for my son. Every night you two will work for me as
that is when we open clearly.’ he said but I stopped listening to the rest when I heard him say donor for his son. ‘ what!’ I screeched. ‘ donor! A freakin donor! No way man! that’s just out of line!’ I said. I couldn’t believe what this crazy dude is asking me to do! ‘ it is what I told you to do and you are doing it. We will pay of course but just not the whole price. Half price for committing the crime. You will work for me as long as I say. You will be free when I say you are. ‘ he said looking bored. I felt a tear come down when he said be free. We are like prisoners here. I wiped the tear quickly away before anyone noticed. I’m going to be strong about this. Its what I do. Being strong is what I am known for. I am going to hold my head up high and accept this and work until I am free. ‘ ok. We accept. ‘ he laughed at what I said as if it’s the funniest thing he has ever heard. ‘ I don’t care if you accept or not. You are working for me weather or not. ‘ I looked down. This guy is pure evil. He looks so innocent but really he is the opposite. He began opening his drawers from his desk and I heard shuffling of papers. He put them on the desk facing me and Katie and then handed me a pen. ‘ now sign this. it’s a contract. You have to promise not to tell anybody about this place or we will come after and kill you both. Got it?’ I nodded weakly and signed my name and passed it to Katie who looks like a ghost. I looked at my new boss and saw him smile. He met my gaze and smiled wider. Bastard! I smiled back. My fake smile.
I jumped up on the desk so I could reach up into the top cupboard in the kitchen. The medicine cupboard. I heard somebody enter the room from behind me. ‘ what are you doing? Are you feeling ok honey?’ mom said when she saw what I was doing. I found the tablets I was looking for. Mom saw the container and sighed. ’ are you anaemic honey?’ she asked worried. I shook my head. ’ uhh no. its just these tablets have iron in them and are supposed to be good for your blood. And I have been trying to be healthier.’ I said knowing she would love her daughter to be healthy. But that’s not the real reason. I am taking these again because my new profession is a blood donor to a vampire. I know I cant believe it either. Anyhow I know I will be loosing some blood so hopefully these tablets will help. She smiled just as I knew she would. ’ that’s a great idea. Ill make a extra healthy dinner for you tonight.’ she said skipping towards the fridge. ‘ thanks but uhh could you wrap it up for me in cling film and ill heat it up later when I get home?’ I said hopeful. Hoping she wont ask about my new job. She turned around confused.’ why are you going out somewhere tonight?’ she asked. ‘ well I have a new job. I thought I might help you and dad out a little. The job has great pay and I don’t need much. I’m not a impulse buyer like other teens today.’ I said as if it was no big deal. I had plenty time last night to think as I couldn’t sleep. So I saw the advantages in this. I could give mum
and dad some money. I knew it was a good idea now because I saw moms face. She looked proud. Of me. that’s something I am not to used to, let me tell ya. She cried with delight and grabbed me in a mom like hug. I closed my eyes waiting for her to stop squeezing me to death. ‘ cant breath mom’ I said exasperated. She let me go and pulled me in front of her so she could see my face. I think she might even be crying. I feel bad now. I wish I had thought of this before. ‘ thanks so much sweet heart. You don’t know how much this means to us. For just trying.’ she said quietly. I nodded and smiled and when she turned around I decided to go to Katie’s. I was dazed for the whole time I was walking to Katie’s. fresh air was good for me right now. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t want to work at this stupid club. Heck I just found out that vampires do exist. At least I’m not having a fit. Vampires aren’t as scary as they are in the movies. So it will be just like working in a club with humans, except that I have to sit there while someone drinks my blood. Aww god I think I’m going to faint. Just a few more steps. Katie’s house is just right there. Just a few more steps. I made it. I was placed on Katie’s door mat. It was designed with dog paws. I rang the door bell once. A few seconds later and Jimmy opened the door. He seemed surprised it was me. Maybe because I didn’t ring the bell so many times as usual. Or maybe because my face looks like how I feel. I must look terrible. He stood there frozen eyes wide with wonder. ’ is Katie here?’ I asked quietly not bothering to mess. He nodded and stepped aside. ’ are you ok Hannah?’ he asked as if worried. Jeez he’s a good actor. I nodded weakly and went straight up to Katie’s room. She was there sitting slumply
on her computer chair gazing tiredly at the computer screen as if hypnotising her. She didn’t even notice me come in until I was on her bed. She jumped and turned. ’ oh hi. Uhh how are you feeling?’ she asked noticing maybe how pale I look. I closed my eyes. ‘ not good. I was just thinking about how I have to sit there while some stupid son drinks me up. Ugh! Why does life suck!’ I said angry. Katie laughed. I opened my eyes to see what was so funny. I didn’t see anything.’ I’m glad I seem to amuse you. Well that’s just great.’ I said closing my eyes again. ‘ no no I’m laughing at the part when you said life sucks. Its just funny.’ she said giggling. I opened my eyes so I could see her. She looked so much better now that she was smiling. I smiled too and stifled a laugh. We were both in stitches then with our fits of laughter that it turned into. I felt good then. We looked at each other when we calmed down. I smiled and shrugged. ‘ we are in it together.’ I said biting my lip. She nodded smiling. But the smile didn’t reach her eyes. Then she jumped up with excitement. Oh no, another plan. ‘ I know what we need to cheer us up. Shopping!’ well that’s a safe idea. Well not if we bump into any witches or anything on the way. Thinking of which, I wonder if they exist to? ‘ great idea. ‘ I said as I let her drag me to her car. Not that I have any say in this. When shopping comes to mind to Katie. There is no other option but to tag along. But this time I brought money. No need to save as much now if I have a job. All we bought is black. Black, black and more black. We got that much as we saw the staff yesterday. I’d say its staff rules, to wear all black. I saw something that I really want but it was far to expensive to even look at
twice. It was a shiny black Nikon camera with 20 megapixiel’s. it would make my 10 megapixel camera look like a disposal camera. And the price was on sale but still far to expensive. I’m just not going to think about it. We were now in my bedroom trying on all our clothes. Picking which one to wear tonight. I could tell Katie was excited about going again tonight and only for one reason. Louie. I suppose I would be excited to if I were in her shoes. Like she’s got it easy really. A cute guy with dark brown hair who is about twenty maybe even nineteen. But no for me I have to be a food. I’m dinner. Is it just me or is there so many things wrong with that sentence? ‘ you look fab Katie!’ I complimented her. She smiled at me. ‘ thanks. Not so bad yourself for a donor.’ she said giggling like crazy. I shot her a dirty look and she stopped. ‘ well do you think we should go now? I think I’m ready to be sucked by something that shouldn’t exist.’ I said all jolly. She looked sad. ‘ do you really hate them Hannah? I personally don’t think they’re to bad. They didn’t kill us.’ she said hopeful. ‘ that’s coz you fancy the hole of Louie! And well the vampires aren’t my favourite people in the world right at this moment.’ I said. She looked down and I bit my lip. I don’t mean to make this a bad experience for her. But you cant blame me for not particularly liking them, right? ‘ well maybe you will change your mind later.’ she said looking up at me with puppy eyes. ‘ yeah, maybe.’ I lied.
‘ Sir Joshua is waiting for you Hannah.’ Louie said as Katie entered behind the bar counter. Sir Joshua! Is he mad! I laughed as if it was the funniest thing I ever heard. Louie looked at me like I had gone mental. He stood there waiting. I shook my head and walked over to the door where Louie pointed at earlier. I was still laughing as I reached for the door. I kept my eyes on the floor as I walked in and closed the door behind me. I was still chuckling quietly to myself. I couldn’t see Joshua’s face as he was turned to the opposite direction. The back of him looked good anyway. His voice was familiar.’ shall we just get this over with?’ he turned around after he said it. My quiet laughter stopped abruptly as I saw who it was. I jumped back a little. He seemed to recognise me to. And he didn’t look to happy like last time. I looked down at his foot to see if there were any signs of it swelling like a balloon like I predicted. My eyebrow raised in confusion as I saw that it looked completely normal. ‘ yes my foot hasn’t been better actually, thanks for asking. Vampires heal faster than humans do.’ he said amused. Then he was by my side so fast that I felt myself go a little wobbly. He grabbed my wrists like Louie had done the night before and dragged me out the door toward my boss’s. oh no! not again. I started kicking and yelling with more force this time then I did to Louie. But instead Joshua just looked at me and rolled his eyes and tightened his grip on me. We were standing in front of my boss in no time. All the shouting and punching made time fly by. ‘ father! I cant possibly drink from this human. How can you give me such a creature?’ Joshua snarled as his father looked up at him. I stopped kicking
and shouting by then to look at my boss. My boss just looked simply bored. What a surprise! ‘ son. This will be your donor for quite a while now so I suggest you learn to put up with her.’ he said standing up as if taking charge. Joshua let go of me so he could cross his arms. ‘ but why?’ he asked like a child who begged their mum for a lolly pop. ‘ simply because of her blood and age. She is around your age so that would be better for you and also, her blood is strong. You can sense it, correct?’ he asked his son. Joshua nodded slightly. ‘ now go please. I have work to do and I have no time for your childish behaviour.’ he sat back down without another glance at me or his son. Joshua grabbed my arm and started to drag me back out of the room. ‘ watch it you jerk! I do bruise you know!’ I shouted in his face so he could hear especially well. ‘ she’s feisty too. The feisty ones are always best for some reason.’ said his dad from the back of the room. Joshua dropped my arm and look at me as if I disgusted him. I rolled my eyes. Gah! These people are the weirdest. I stood awkwardly when he closed the door of his room. What am I supposed to do? ‘ look I don’t want to do this as much as you don’t. ‘ he said. It was probably the nicest thing he has ever said to me. ‘ then why do you do it?’ I asked smirking. He walked over to the bed and patted the spot beside him. Yupee! Here we go. I sat down slowly. ‘ I have no choice. I will die unless I don’t.’ he whispered. I looked up at him. His light green eyes almost looked sad. ‘ its ok. Just hurry up.’ I said impatiently now. He picked up some of my dark brown hair by the side of my neck and brushed it to the back of my shoulders. That sent tickling sensations down to my feet. I shivered. It was a anxious shiver though. ’ please don’t try to resist. It
will hurt like hell.’ he whispered while he positioned his lips on my neck. I froze. I couldn’t move anywhere. I wouldn’t move anywhere. I felt the piercing needle like meet my skin. I cried out a quiet pain because it did hurt like hell. I started to think of ways to beat this jerk up when suddenly it wasn’t hurting anymore. It felt extremely good now. It felt like I had butterflies all over me. I closed my eyes and gave in. I fell back so I was lying on my back and Joshua followed not taking his lips from my neck. He wasn’t gentle with me anymore. He was acting as if he just couldn’t get enough. Then as if realising it Joshua began to pull back. And I begged him to continue. Then he completely pulled back and it didn’t feel good anymore. It was like I woke up. The two needle holes on my neck now felt stingy and not nice. I jumped up alerted. He looked at me with sorrow. ’ I’m so sorry I think I took to much. I shouldn’t of taken so much. I don’t know what came over me its just you tasted so different.’ he looked down in guilt and confusion not able to look me in the eyes. I felt a bit dizzy. Anger roused through me.’ you bastard! What’s going to happen to me now?’ I shouted. He looked up still looking sad.’ you just wont be so energetic as usual. Tomorrow you will be fine. I don’t know what came over me. I’ve never been so out of control. You just taste-’ he said but I cut him of before he could finish his sentence. ’ So feisty! ’ I shouted finishing his sentence for him giving him a dagger look and ran out the door. I ran out stubbly but I wasn’t giving up. I ran up to a smiling Katie who looked like she was having a blast. Lucky her. Her smile turned upside down as soon as she saw me. ‘ what’s wrong Hannah?’ she asked concerned. ‘ ugh its just that prick! He
drank to much and now I feel like shit! I just want to go home!’ I shouted. Louie came over hearing everything. ‘ but you have to help us serve. One of our staff members have quit today and you need to fill in until we find a replacement.’ he said turning to serve a anxious customer. I groaned loudly and ducked under the counter to get in. ‘ I just need to sit down for a bit , ok?’ I said to Louie. He nodded and I found a chair and sank down into it trying to focus on getting my breathing back to normal. I saw a worried Katie look down to me and I smiled as best I could and waved her of to tell her I’m fine. She nodded and continued to work. I closed my eyes and repeated to myself I’m strong. I’m strong. Get up back out there and show them that nothing bothers you. I opened my eyes a new person and jumped up energetically. I followed Louie and Katie around trying to get used to the gist of things. By the end of the night I was completely trained. I served costumers with flying colours. And I wasn’t as dizzy. All night I hadn’t seen any sign of Joshua. Smart boy. Coming out to try to talk to me would be bad. Bad for him. But deep down I do feel sorry for him. I’m sure he’s very lonely. But I still hate him. it’s a pity he has to be such a asshole. If he weren’t I could imagine getting along with him really well. But he’s a self centred jerk instead so the chances on getting along with him are slim. Very slim. On the way home all I was hearing Louie this and Louie that. I pretended I cared and put a smile on my face. Its not that I don’t care about my friends happiness, I do its just I didn’t feel great at that particular time considering I just had been sucked out of like a Ribena juice box . I
decided on sleeping in Katie’s house tonight as I don’t think I will make it up the stairs on my own and I don’t want my mom or dad suspicious to why I have conked out on the stairs. I text both my parents to tell them my new arrangements. I closed my eyes resting my arms on side of the door and I was asleep straight away. I felt someone shuffle me and I groaned. I didn’t know where I was but I did know one thing. And that is that I’m not waking up. The person left me be thankfully and I fell into a deeper sleep that I barely even heard the sound of the car door close. Then I was cold. Why wont people leave me alone? I just want to sleep. I felt wind at my face and felt strong arms holding me. The strong arms were warm so I didn’t groan. I don’t think it was Katie because she’s defiantly not this strong. I didn’t care who it was. All I knew was that they were warm and protective. I wrapped my arm around the persons neck as it wasn’t comfortable hanging loosely. Then the person stumbled a little and I opened my eyes hazily. It was Jimmy. If I was wide awake I would of thrown a fit and kicked him until he cried. But I was to tired tonight. I felt to dizzy and I just wanted bed. I saw him looking at me with worried eyes. I smiled sheepishly. ’ Hey Jim Joe, what’s crakalakin?’ I whispered weakly. I could even tell that I sounded almost drunk. He grinned. ’ shhh..’ I obeyed and closed my eyes again. We were in a bedroom now and I could feel him put me down lightly as if I was so fragile. The feel of a soft mattress felt so good right now that I went to sleep instantly.
