The Music was so loud I could feel the bass on the back of my eyeballs.I wonder why i bothered getting out of bed today i almost hadn’t but something had told me to go out and have some fun. I open myself up and let it flow inside of my I move with and between the notes. A girl with black hair with highlights that change colour, Skinny jeans and A kick ass band tee wants to dance with me. We dance for a few songs, she whispers to me.
“You’re pretty cute, this is sooo boring come back to my place” she grabs my hand and I freeze up.
She doesn’t know what I am.
What I can do with my hands. With my teeth
Strangle or caress.
Rip or Kiss.
Quicker then you can see I break away from her and re-mingle with the crowd.
I flow back into the music slowly, pissed off because she was pretty cute, pissed off because she didn’t have something similar to her inside me that I could use as an excuse to turn her.
The night goes on the music gets louder the dancing gets harder some of the kids here are warp dancing after being hurt and re emerging scratch less. More girls come each more beautiful then the last its becoming a strain for me to leave them. Then suddenly over the overpowering wave after wave of the late teens lust another emotion emerges. It’s coming from the bar I head in the direction pushing through the crowd. The thinker moves to the crowd and I feel her and I’m sure it’s a girl now, relax into the music open herself and let the music flow through her…I’ve never heard someone else do that I find her dancing with some gangly testicle driven twenty something year old. I smile and search for a girl thinking the same thing I find her and coax myself inside her mid then inside his and lead them together, he leaves the girl and begins to dance with the new chick I’ve picked out for him, I move to the girl who is now dancing by herself and put a hand on her shoulder, she looks up at me and a pair of dazzling green eyes look into my icy blue ones.
I mouth the words Dance with me? And press them into her mind also she nods at me and we let the music fill us and move together with the music and with each other. A slow song comes on and we slow down and she loops her arms around my neck.
“Somehow I don’t think you’re a knight in shining armour” I put my hands around her neck.
“No, but I’ll be your rogue in dulled leather.”
She chuckles and pushes her chin into my chest and looks up into my eyes again
“What’s your name Tall Dark and Handsome?”
“Everyone calls me Lithe”
“Yeah we all have nicknames”
“Yeah us Vampires”
She stared at me for a while then leaned up and kissed me. Her lips are warm against mine, her breath is hot, she tastes good.
“That isn’t the answer I’m used to” I admitted after she pulls away she laughs and put her head on my chest.
“All right heres one last song for all you lovers out there” says the disk jockey.
We sway together with the song and it ends.
“Im not leaving you,” she says as i try to breakaway from her i look into her eyes.
“You have fifty words to convince why not to leave for your sake?”
“I have nothing left, i don’t want to keep going like this, there is nothing for me in this life, my landlord is about to repossess my house and my ex-boyfriend just left with all our furniture and my cash and my parents died in a fire a few months ago” she looks at me pleadingly “please Zeke” i freeze as she says my actual name. a deep growl escapes my throat.
“How. Do you. Know. My Name” I say in a voice that sounds like mine but for bestial.
“I can sometimes see what people are thinking when i look in their eyes” she explains looking at her feet dumbly.
I stare at her for a moment then walk to my car and open the passenger seat
“Get in then” I figured if this doesn’t scare her off then she is Vampire material besides…There is something about her that is begging to be nurtured into something more, Vampire blood running through her could do that… She smiles and jumps in I close the door behind her and grin…I knew it was worth getting out of bed this morning.
I figured there where alot of blanks that needed to be filled in from eternal…so here it is!
