The Vampire's Gem

The night is filled with their shadows

Creatures of unspeakable horror
They feed on their victims blood
They are cruel and they are fierce
With eyes as cold as the night
Vampires rule with an iron fist

I run fast with it clenched in my fist
A gem as dark as the shadows
I could barely see it in the night
All I could think were thoughts of horror
The branches hitting my face were fierce
Scratching my skin and drawing blood

Now covered by my own blood
I slow down and open my fist
Vampires, growing closer, are fierce
My body was hidden in the shadows
But it did nothing to hide my horror
All I could do was hide in the night

I continued to hide in the night
I knew they could smell my blood
Watching them run past me filled me with horror
To keep from screaming, I bit my fist
I knew I had to keep to the shadows
My thoughts turned fierce

To keep from falling, my feet were fierce
I ran so fast through that night
Remembering to keep to the shadows
All I could hear was the pounding of my blood
I felt it still clenched in my fist
I could no longer feel the horror

With a plan in my head, I felt no horror
My successful smile turned fierce
I shifted the black gem to my other fist
I continued to run through the night
With my speed, they might smell my blood
Even if I was hiding in the shadows

My fierce thoughts were filled with shadows
Without horror, there was no fear in my blood
With the gem in my fist, I continued home though the night

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

emily1193: The auther captivates the audience and hooks u from beginning. Other and a few spelling mistakes a good read. some parts were funny others were sad. The author did a nice job making the characters come to life.

CurlyRed: I read this entire book in just under 4 hours I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! i found myself emotionally attached to the characters and making personal connections that i had never experienced before while reading a book! I was constantly wanting to read more, every chapter left me on a cliff hanger tha...

Flik: Hi! ^.^ huge fan of yours on ff.net! When I saw the note about this contest on The Way We Smile, I couldn't help but rush over here, create an account, and vote! XD Seriously love this story and would recommend it to anyone! :D best FT fanfiction out there. Amazing story, amazing concept that wa...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Dinzy: To begin with,If you have not read this story yet; well what are you waiting for... Go and read it. The best part of this story is how each character is describing the story in their own words. For example, my favorite parts are chapter 38 and 39 when we start reading what Ava says then it jumps ...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

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...
