Italics are thoughs inside Iris's head

Bold are Iris thoughts back to the voice.

My eyes flew open and before I knew it, I was getting out of my bed and walking toward the kitchen.

Iris?

My head shot up and I looked to my left, then to my right. But to my suprise, there was nobody there. I shook my head and filled my glass, then took a drink.

Iris?

I couldn't figure out where the voice was coming from. I thought about it for a minute and decided to try something.

Hello? I thought to my self.

It was quite for a few seconds and then thats when I heard a soft laugh.

I was wondering when you would figure it out.

Who are you? I was really starting to freak out. I could feel my heart beat pick up speed.

Come outside to your back yard, I have a surprise for you. Then he laughed again. But this one sounded very evil.

Every part of my brain was screaming not to listen, but I couldnt help it. I am naturally curious. So I headed out the back door. Before I shut it, I made sure that it was locked, and then shut it tightly.

I took a few steps out into the yard the I said, Ok. I'm here. What do you want?

At first there was no answer, but then I heard food steps and a shadowed figure came into my line of sight. I was not prepared for what happened next. The shadowed figure disappeared and then reappeared inches away from me with his hands on my throat.

I was in shock. His hand was not chocking me at the moment but I still started to get it off of me. But nothing worked. Finally I stopped fighting and took a look at the man standing in front of me. He was taller than me by a head. His black hair was in his face and...oh my god...his eyes were glowing bright red.

He's always been fascinated by you. The man said, more to himself than anything. I don't understand. Your human. He took a good look into my eyes and an evil looking smile crossed his face. But I'm going to change that.

What do you mean, change that? Who are you? My heart was in my throat. I was trying so hard not to sound scared but I failed miserably.

That's when the man threw his head back and laughed. My name is Val. And as for your first question, its so much easier to show you.

The hand around my neck tightened, and Val was moving in slow motion.

Once he was close enough to my neck, he didn't waste any time, he bit me. I could feel his fangs break through my skin. I fought the urge to scream, my brain was sending me messages that if I screamed he would hurt me more.

It's a weird feeling you know. Feeling your blood leaving your body. Your limbs start to get heavy, almost like they are concrete. Then you can feel your own heart beat slow down.

Val finally lifted his head, and wiped the blood from his mouth.

Everything was fuzzy. My eyes were going in and out of focus. Then I saw Val lift his arm and make a cut on his wrist. Then he brought it down to my mouth. I tried to fight but I couldn't feel my body by this time. Once Val had finished, I was unconscious, but the weird thing about it was that I could still hear everything around me.

Val was talking to me out loud now. "It's a shame I can't keep you. You are very pretty."

Before Val could say anything else, I heard running and a new voice, "Get away from her."
