I awoke and stood up, only to immediately sit back down. I put a hand to my forehead. I got up to quick. I thought, trying to get my eyes to focus and my head to stop spinning. “It’ll go away soon, here take these.” I looked up and saw the man from earlier standing by the door. He walked up to me and held out his hand, it was a cup and two small pills in it. “If you take them, it will make the pain go away.” he said.
“Um, I’m good.”
“Suit yourself.” he said setting the cup and pills on a small table by the door.
“Who are you and where am I?”
“I am Valerik and you are in Venus Falls.”
“That’s not important right now.” he started walking towards the door. “Come, the master will see you now.”
“Master...do you mean Elliot?” I said almost laughing.He didn’t reply. He walked out of the room and started up the stairs, I followed him. When we got upstairs I was surprised to find that everything was medieval themed. We walked through what looked to be a ginormous living area. He opened a big door, I found that we were now in the dining room. At the end of the long table sat a boy about Ash’s age. I looked over to Valerik. “This is the master?” He had medium length black hair and bright blue eyes. I had to admit, he was handsome.
“Please, have a seat.” he gestured towards the seat next to him. I walked around the table and took a seat next to him. I looked back to see if Valerik was still there but he had gone somewhere else. We were alone now... awkward.
“Hello my name is-”
"Elliot, yes your brother has talked about you oh so much.” I said sarcastically with a smile. might as well have fun with this. He did not look amused.
“Well, he can be quite talkative can’t he? Anyways I assume that you already know why it is that you are here?” “Well, that...I actually do not know. Why am I here Elliot? That is the question is it not? Is it because you don’t want me and Ash to be together? But then kidnaping Amanda wouldn’t make any sense. If you have me, why do you need her?”
“Because my sweet Raven, she is the Devils’ Angel. A lot of people would pay millions for her. That and kidnaping her mad it easier for me to find you.”
“What do you plan on doing with her? Sell her? Kill her for her power? Come on Elliot, what is it?”
“Well you certainly know a lot for a human don’t know...you are human...right?” He asked confused for a second.
“Sure, let’s go with that.” I said.He leaned forward.
“Things will go much faster if you just tell me the truth Raven.” “You think I’m lying? Do you think I would be here or even know about you or Amanda? People tell me I’m things but I know I’m not what they tell me. To be honest, I don’t know what I am.”
“I could tell you, but only if you do me a favor in return.”
“What is it you want anyway? Because honestly, I don’t see the point behind all of this. I can see the jealousy part in-”
“I am not jealous! Must I remind you who you are in the presence of? My brother may let you boss him around but I sure as hell won’t. You will respect me! Must I remind you of what I am?!” Before I knew what was happening he had me pushed up against the wall. His knee in between my legs, my hands bound by his own. His teeth barely grazing my neck. A cold chill ran down my spine, I couldn’t even speak. All I could do is stand there. He let go of me and I fell to the floor. He had been the only thing holding me up. “Now, I’m going to go check on things. Valerik will lead you to your room, oh and don’t try to escape. We wouldn’t want one of the other vampires that lives here to find you, they won’t hesitate to kill you.” I nodded. “Valerik!” he called. Valerik walked into the room with a tray of tea in his hands. He set the tea on the table.He walked over to us and bowed,
I thought just before I realized that he might be able to read minds too. Elliot turned around and walked up to me until he was just inches away from my face.
“Don’t EVER think you can talk to me like that!” he smacked me across the face. My head hit against the wall, hard. Valerik walked over and helped me up. He then led me from the room, I got light headed while walking down the stairs and Valerik had to catch me before I fell. He picked me up and continued down the stairs, at some point I must have lost consciousness. When I woke up, I was lying on what looked to be a cot. It was dark in the room; I heard a rustling sound in the corner. I scooted to the back of the cot, drawing my knees up to my chest.
“Who’s there?” I demanded to the dark shape. It moved and stood up; it had a human girls’ figure.
