I opened my eyes to see what looked to be stars. I sat up quickly, thinking that I was outside. I sighed, it was just the ceiling. The bed that I was in had a purple blanket, black sheets, and white pillows on it. This isn’t my room, or my bed...where am I? I looked down to see what I was wearing, I was in jeans and a black tank top. I swung my feet over the side of the bed, the carpet was black and was soft on my bare feet. I went over to the window to look outside, I did not recognize anything. Maybe I was kidnaped. Not only did I not know where I was, I could not remember anything at all. I walked over to the desk and picked up a vase. I stood behind the door. The door opened and a man walked into the room. I went to smash it over his head.He turned around and grabbed the vase from out of my hands.
“Whoa, Raven. Trying to kill me?”I looked at him confused.
“Do I know you?”
“You don’t remember me?”
“No, should I”
“You should, but it’s okay if you don’t. Raven, my name is Elliot, and I’m your brother. You have amnesia, this room that you’re in is yours. This is our house.”
“Where is our parents?”
“Our mother died recently and our father is away on a trip.” “Oh...so it’s just us here?” I asked.
“We have others in the house, you can meet them some other time. Are you hungry? I can make you anything you want.”
“I’ll decide what I want after I get dressed.” I said as I walked into the closet. As soon as I walked into the closet I was disappointed by the style choice of clothes. I looked back at Elliot. “These are mine?”
“Of course.” he gave me a weird look. “is everything okay?”
“It’s just...I don’t like the style.” I said smiling sheepishly.
“oh, we can go buy new ones later if you want. Those are the clothes you liked before you lost your memory. I guess things change. Shouldn’t I like the same things?
“Well go find something to where...what did you want to eat?” “Can I have a chocolate shake?” I don’t know why, but I had a sudden craving for one.
“Sure, I’ll go fix it while you get dressed.”
“Okay” I said as I looked through the wardrobe.I ended up picking a plain black shirt and jeans. I went over to the shoes. I picked up a pair of tennis shoes and tried them on. They were too big. Somethings not right. My style may have changed but my shoe size hasn’t. Weird. I walked out into the hallway in just my socks. There was a grand staircase leading to what I assumed was the living room. When I got to the bottom I noticed a man sitting on the couch. The man jumped up suddenly and vanished. I felt something move behind me, I turned around quickly. The man jumped up suddenly and vanished. I felt something move behind me, I turned around quickly. The man was now in front of me, his eyes glowing red. He reached a hand out as if he were going to touch my face.
“Edwinn.” Elliot walked into the room. “leave my sister alone.”
“Si-” he turned around suddenly and left the room.I looked over to Elliot. “What did you do to him? Who was that Elliot? Why were his eyes red?”
“It’s okay, he isn’t going to hurt you. He was just curious, that is my friend Edwinn. He’s....a vampire.”
“What?!” Vampires are real??
“It’s okay, he will not bite you.”
“...okay, are there any other vampires here?”
“A few but they know better than to touch my little sister.” he said putting his arm around me. “Now, let’s get you that chocolate milk shake.” I went and sat down at the kitchen table; watching him as he made it. When he was done, he brought it over and sat it in front of me. I picked the cup up and took a sip.
“This is really good!” I said smiling.
“I’m glad you think so” he said handing me a napkin.I blushed.
“Thanks” I laughed.
“So what do you want to do after I finish my shake?” I asked.
“We could watch a movie” he suggested.
“Sounds fun, what movies do you have?”
“Here, come with me and I’ll show you my collection.” we walked back into the living room. I looked around, making sure that Edwinn wasn’t in here again.
“Don’t worry, he’s upstairs.” he said as if reading my thoughts. Elliot walked over to a cabinet and opened it, revealing five shelves of dvds. I went over and started skimming the titles of the movies. I sighed and looked up at him.
“Actually, can we take a walk?”
“Sure, I know of the perfect spot.” I closed the cabinet and stood up.
“Can you show me?”
“of course” he opened the front door and I walked outside. I shielded my eyes with one hand.
“It’s so bright.” I said squinting. When my eyes adjusted to the brightness; all I saw was a field all the way up to the forest line.
“Do we live in the middle of nowhere?” I asked, laughing nervously.
“Basically, our mom wasn’t social and dad didn’t like being around others either. That and we can’t have our vampire friends hurting anyone.” he said. We were at the edge of the forest now. I could hear birds chirping and the sound of water somewhere in the distance. As we walked further into the forest, the sun broke through the leaves. I looked up, the sun warm on my face.
