Alice's Story

Alice's Story

I woke in a dark building. Where was I? Suddenly, my throat was on fire, and I knew I had to drink blood. I stood and looked around, taking in the barren grey walls and wooden roof of an abandoned warehouse, but then, a picture appeared in my head, of a curly-haired blonde man with troubled, dark eyes approaching me in an inn. Then another image, of me and the man standing next to a kind-faced female with dark hair and a straight-haired blonde male in front of a glass-walled white house. We all had golden eyes. I knew I would drink animal blood in the future, so I crept out of the building and found a herd of deer grazing not too far away. I glanced at the sky. It was night, the moon high in the sky, which was filled with stars.. I attacked one of the deer and the others fled, leaving me to drink in peace. Afterwards I set off, looking for that place where I would meet him. Each night I would find some animal or two, then hide somewhere until night. I found the place after five nights. Running into the nearby forest, I found another herd of deer and brought down two. I cleaned up in a nearby stream and walked into the inn. Then, I sat in a chair and waited. A female, a waitress came up to me after a while, but I ignored her and she soon left. A few men approached me but a quick glare sent them hurrying away. I rented a room at the inn, and drank the blood of the animals in the forest. But mostly I just sat in my chair and waited. I waited a while, but one day, he came. I lightly hopped off my stool and walked up to him.

"you've kept me waiting a long time." I scolded gently.

"I'm sorry ma'am," He said to me, and bowed deeply.

I smiled at him.
