The Consequences of Obsessing over Vampires

Adventure / Fantasy


It was the summer of 2005, my mother, my boyfriend and I were sitting on my green sofa talking about random things. My mother went into the kitchen and came back minutes later carrying a tray containing tea and biscuits.

"Thanks mom," I grabbed a cup and took a couple biscuits.

"Your welcome dear. Dey, don't be shy; help yourself." My mom smiled at Deylinn sweetly.

"Thank you Ms. Anderson."

"Katie, I am going to the store to pick up a few things for dinner. Is there anything you would like while I'm there?" I shook my head no. "Alright, I'll be back soon."

"Alright mother."

She glared at us, "Be good you two." A few moments later we heard the car pull out of the driveway.

"Well, now what?" Deylinn looked at me questionly.

I shrugged stiffly. "Dey, do you remember when we first met?"

He raised his eyebrow, confused and than smiled. "Of course I do."

"And here I thought you would forget all about it." I replied sarcastically, than laughed at his hurt expression. "Oh come on, I was just bugging."

"Well, sadly you are right. If you were some other girl, I would have forgot all about it." I looked at him confused. "Katelyn, I never did tell you why we moved here."

"Cause a girl you dated became obsessed with you?" I guessed, laughing.

He looked at me seriously, making me stop laughing. "I am being serious."

I sighed, "Than why did you move here?"

Deylinn rubbed his hand through his hair, "It's complicated to explain."

I remained silent, waiting for him to go on and explain. When he never said anything I walked over to the body length mirror. My purple and black hair was up in a pony tail, my face was skinny but I had chubby cheeks; my lips were a bright pink and medium size. I was tall for being sixteen, and I loved playing sports; I had a muscular build that most guys couldnt get enough of.

"Katie, why do you like vampires so much? It's not like they are real." So instead of answering my question, he decided to totally change the subject.

"Why are you avoiding my question?" I asked sternly, turning around.

"Because I don't want to answer it, and I was curious about you and vampires." Deylinn looked at me with his baby blue eyes.

I looked at him once more and couldn't help but to give in. "Alright, I'll tell you." He smiled victoriously at me. "When I was six, my mom told me a story about vampires; of how they lived and how they hide from humans. I was completely interested in what she had to say, she told me a story of how she met one a couple days before I was born." I paused and took a deep breath. " That night after she finished telling me the story, I dreamt of meeting one myself. I think that night my dream was answered, I woke up because of a cold draft in my room. I went to shut the window when I saw someone standing there."

"Wow.." Dey sat there with his mouth hanging open.

"The person and I stood there staring at each other. Then the figure spoke and it was a woman. She muttered something to herself than she said three words that have been imprinted in my mind ever since than." I looked at Deylinn and smiled slightly at his child like expression.

"What did she say Katie?" He asked eagerly.

"She said 'Soon my daughter'." I answered and my smile slowly faded.

"How do you know for sure that she was a vampire?"

I thought about it a moment before I decided to answer. "I really don't know if she was a vampire or not. I just have a feeling."

"Oh I see." Was all he could say, he averted his eyes so he wouldn't have to look at me.

I crossed my arms frustrated, "Dey, why did you move here?"

Deylinn fidgeted with his thumbs for a moment and than he opened his mouth to speak. "Long story short: lots of disappearances were happening so my parents fled and moved here."

"Wow, and the way you made it sound like a terrible disaster happened." I giggled.

"What do you mean?" Deylinn stood up unexpectedly. "If we didn't move when we did, I wouldn't be here right now."

"Okay Dey, I'm sorry. Don't have to be so dramatic though. When did all this happen?"

"A few months after I was born."

I looked at him suddenly really confused. "Dey, that was seventeen years ago."

"So?" He looked at me.

"So, why did it take you seventeen years to move here?!" I asked exasperated.

"Because we were in hiding, till everything quieted down than we left."

I raised an eyebrow, not really believing him. "Whatever, go watch T.V. I am going to go get a book."

"Don' tell me you are going to get that book." I smiled at him and walked away.

An hour passed and my mom still wasn't home, Deylinn was watching some sort of wrestling program and I was reading my book. I was getting paranoid about my mother, I kept glancing at the clock till it looked like it stopped ticking. I think it was getting annoyed with me from looking at it so much. I sighed deeply and laid my head on Deylinn's shoulder.

"Don't worry Katie, your mom is probably over at your unlces or something." Deylinn tried to reassure me.

"You are probably right Dey." I paused and looked at my book, a smile forming on my face. "Dey, wouldn't to be cool if we could be vampires?"

He looked at me curiously and shrugged, "Sure Katie." I punched him hard in the arm, causing him to flinch away from me. "Ow! What was that for?"

I smiled playfully, "Because you pay more attention to the tv than me."

He grabbed me with his muscular arm and hugged me. "You know I love you."

"I know." I mumbled as I went back to my book. 'I wish I was a vampire.' I thought to myself.

Suddenly the house started to shake and mom's china sets fell to the floor with a high crash. Lightning struck the sky violently outside the house. Deylinn jumped off the couch, and dragged me to a nearby corner. Putting his arms around me like he was trying to protect me from something that wasn't there to begin with.

"What's going on?" I yelled above the screaming wind.

"I don't know." He yelled back. His face was hard with worry and his black hair flapping in the whirling wind, making him look real cute.

An other bolt of lightning crashed on the ground, a few minutes later it stopped just as quickly as it has come.

"Mom is going to kill me." I groaned looking at the book. "Uh Deylinn," I poked him, horror and confusion evident in my voice.

"Yeah?" He looked at me, and than looked towards what I was looking at. My book was glowing it was glowing a dark red.

We both looked at each other worriedly. I felt a queasy feeling in my stomach and suddenly fell onto something hard. I opened my eyes slowly, blurry from an unexpected fall.

"Deylinn, where are we?" I asked Deylinn, but soon realized that he was unconscious.
