I started walking towards my truck, after completing a long shift. I scowled as the rain hit my forehead. Even after spending all these years in Forks, I couldn't get used to the cold, wet, humid feeling of the rain.
Glancing at my watch, I realized that I was running later than I had anticipated. Ever since I had agreed to work at the Newton's, to pay for my college tuition, I'd gotten home at 8 pm. Currently, it was 8:45.
I drove my truck on the slippery road towards my home, the rain making it difficult to go fast , or what was fast for my truck. It was dark and foggy, the headlight of my truck attempting feebly to provide some light. But it wasn't enough to lessen the dark and gloomy effect of the creepy forest on both sides of the road. Due to this, I didn't realize that a human figure had appeared in front of my truck until it was too late.
I hit the brakes with all the force I could manage, grasping the steering wheel with frozen hands.
My car into something solid…my head hit the steering wheel, resulting in a sharp jolt of pain and a trickle of warm liquid from my nose. After a while my eyes saw nothing but black. But, just before the darkness overcame me completely, I saw something I couldn't have believed in any other situation.
What I saw was a pair of dark red irises, gleaming like rubies in the darkness, staring hungrily back at me.
