A man knelt on the floor beside his wife in their room as they trembled. They were surrounded by three men that were far from being ordinary humans. They knew without the help of a soothsayer that these were vampires, and they knew the reason they were here.
These men have been torturing them for the last three hours, demanding for the money they owe them. So far, they have killed two people who tried opposing them. The man's younger sister and her newly wedded husband. Today was supposed to be a happy evening for them, but it turned out to be a bloody evening.
The man regretted ever borrowing money from them, but what could he have done. His daughter needed the money urgently for her surgery. He had thought that if he ran away with his family to another country they wouldn't find him. Unfortunately for them they were found out. Faster than they ever imagined.
The door was kicked down suddenly and they trembled looking up to see who it was. Outside the room stood a tall scary man, whose gaze slayed their already dying heart. They knew who he was. The dangerous man people talked about. The man who lent you money and took away the most important thing to you if you didn't pay up. Although this was the first time they had actually met him, they knew without any doubt that this scary man was their leader.
"Did you really think you could run away from me?". He snickered, walking slowly towards them, his hands behind his back. He threw his head back and laughed stopping in front of the pitiful couple who avoided his gaze.
The woman's sobbing increased. She never liked the idea of her husband borrowing money from them because she knew it would get them in a lot of trouble. Afterall rumors carried that he wasn't human. Now look were it got them, they were now at the mercy of h. She could only hope that her daughter was safe.
The woman flinched when he crouched beside her, his cold finger tilting her head up to meet his gaze. His blue eyes were mesmerizing. Anyone could get lost looking into his eyes, just as she was getting lost. He had a chiseled jaw and prominent nose. His lashes were unbelievably long and his lips tempting. He had a pale skin which made him look devilishly handsome. If not that this was a matter of life and death she would never had stopped admiring him. He was unbelievably gorgeous.
"Get your hands off my wife". Her husband yelled, trying to save his wife from the monster beside him. The man stood up and in one swift move grabbed the man by his neck and yanked him across the room, causing him to hit his head on the wall.
"Michael". His wife cried and tried crawling towards her husband's almost lifeless body, but was stopped by the man who wasn't done with her.
"Since you failed in Your own part of the deal and also ran away. I will just kill you all.". He informed her, an evil grin on his handsome face. She shook her head, no as hot tears trailed down her tears stained cheeks.
"No?". He asked, wrapping his hand around her neck and squeezing life out of her. She placed her hands in his trying to save herself but it was of no use.
The woman closed her eyes as she tried enduring the pain.
This was for her kid. She kept assuring herself. She only hoped that her daughter who didn't come home everyday would not today. She used to shout at her for being a nuisance to everyone, but little did she know that her wayward behavior would save her today.
"What's the point of enduring when I will still kill her?". He chuckled darkly, his long nails digging into her skin as he traced the skin from her jaw to her neck. Leaving a trail of blood. The three men's eyes turned red as they perceived the intoxicating smell of her blood.
The woman's heart beat faster as she knew she was about to be killed. The man smirked ordering his men not to attack her. She flinched when he leaned towards her, his cold tongue licked off any sign of blood on her neck.
"There is a limit to my kindness, Mrs. Martinez. If you fail to...".
"Mom". A high pitched voice called suddenly, interrupting him. He turned to see a high school girl, on a pink dress. Her long blonde hair was tied in a pigtail. The Prince's eyes softened when she turned towards him, revealing her green eyes. They were the most beautiful emerald green eyes he had seen. She was the most adorable human he has ever seen in his years on Earth.
There was something about the way she looked at him that made him soften his heart, and that...was a big problem.
"Run, Adrienne". Her mother screamed, getting up and running towards the innocent girl who was confused, when she was stopped by one of the men. The girl looked up at her mom, obviously confused at what was happening here. "Please let her go". She cried.
"Mom, are these your friends? Why is dad not moving? Why are you crying?". The thirteen years old girl had a lot of questions she needed answers to. She eyed the handsome man standing behind her mother. He was on a black coat and pants. He looked scary yet beautiful.
She knew he was one of those bad guys she watched on TV. The ones who make the story have a sad ending but for some reason she wasn't scared of him. And this amazed him.
"Your mum's friends?". The vampire prince asked, taking two quick steps towards her."Do we look like we are on a reunion party?". He asked, a smile on his face. This was definitely the first time he had smiled, especially when he was on a murder mission.
"What do you want from is?". She asked instead, looking him straight in the eyes. She felt a chill run down her spin when he stared back. No matter how courageous she may look he still scared her.
"You". He replied nonchalantly. Everyone in the room turned towards him surprised even the once thought dead man did. The prince walked over to a work out sofa in the sitting room and sat down with crossed legs.
"Come here". He ordered her. Before she realized what was happening, her feet were already walking towards the scary man. "Good girl". The prince praised, making her sit on his lap. Weirdly, she felt secured in his arms. Maybe because he compelled her to.
"Please leave my daughter". Her mother cried, trying to get to her daughter. She couldn't imagining losing her only child. The reason for the money was to save her life and now she was about to be taken away by a dangerous man. What was the essence of borrowing the money if she would be taken away. "Take me instead".
"Too bad am not interested in you. You should count yourselves lucky today. I won't kill you but your daughter would be the price you pay. Consider yourselves childless".
