“Please!” He screamed. “I’m sorry!”
It’s funny how the ruthless, blood-sucking Vampire could so easily switch to a pitiful beggar when you pointed a gun to his head.
I shook my head in disgust. “I’m disappointed in you, human slaughterer.” I shoved the revolver further against his temple. “I expected a bit more of a fight from you!”
He growled and snapped his pointed teeth at my arm. I returned the action with a kick to the ribs, followed by holding him in a penetrating torture elbow, a martial arts manoeuvre that I had learnt and it came in handy in the least expected moments.
“What did I say about trying to bite me?” I hissed into his ear. “I will never let a leech take my blood.” I internally shivered at the thought of its filthy teeth touching me. “Freak.”
He scurried from my grasp, and I clicked my gun, ready to pull the trigger. The space was tight, and I patiently watched as he backed up against a wall, undoubtedly trying to look brave in his last breathing moment.
But then I started to reconsider, uncertain of whether I should actually make the shot. He might be good for questioning, after all; perhaps he knew something of the rebellion against the Shape-shifters. I remembered watching him kill those humans. They had been defenceless, and he was a ruthless murderer, just like all the other Vampires. My uncertainty seemed to melt away.
“The Shape-shifters clan will fall to its knees at the hands of Vampires!” He spat. “We will take over as head of the Hybrids, and your kind will all perish.”
I laughed at his stupidity, “Not while I’m still standing.”
I pulled the trigger.
mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!
Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...
Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren
Ben Gauger: Kudos go to the author of ''Equinox: Into the Clouds'' for originality in character development as well as scene execution and in addition plot development, A truly original story if I do say so myself, though the spelling in and of itself could use a little work, but other than that a truly orig...
PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station. You are doing a remarkable job. It would have been interesting if Albus had also ended up in Ravenclaw though that mig...
Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...
Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!
ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...
FreakyPoet: "you made me laugh, made me cry, both are hard to do. I spent most of the night reading your story, captivated. This is why you get full stars from me. Thanks for the great story!"
Sara Joy Bailey: "Full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done."
