life and lies

David walks out of the school and heads towards his car as a heavy rain starts to pour, getting in and closing the door he starts the car up and turns the radio on to drown out his thoughts but he kept help hearing the voice in his head saying "this is wrong, you cant tell her everything are you crazy she will flip out, she will report you or worse try to kill you! just let her go and forget about her"

back at the house Lexi forgets about the pizza and walks into the living room and picks up the phone "screw this I'm getting out of here" the line is dead, I slam the phone back down and look around seeing a door slightly open I head for it, walking into a huge room filled from floor to ceiling with books all kinds of books. "dang no wonder he teaches, all this knowledge in my head I would wanna share it too" I walk over to one of the shelves and pull a book but it only comes out halfway, I turn to see another door open "who the heck is this guy freaking James bond?"
David pulls up in the driveway and heads for the front door stepping in and shaking the rain out of his long hair, throwing the keys on the table by the door, and walks into the kitchen to see one of the blood bags laying on the floor "fuck!" looking around "Lexi! where are you? look I can explain if you just let me"
I hear David yell from the living room and I almost go to answer him but then I stop and slip into the little room heading down a winding staircase into what looks like a basement. I step into a room that is cold and dark and look around as I bump into something hard holding back the urge to scream I move my hand along a wall and flip a switch as the room brightens I'm left staring at a giant coffin in the center of the room.
David comes up behind me "yeah you shouldn't be down here" I turn and a smile comes across my face that I can't control "I get it, this is all a huge prank right I'm being punked where are the cameras, ruby put you up to this right? David sighs "ah denial that's something I wasn't expecting from you" he grabs my hand and leads me back upstairs. "Lexi you need to understand this isn't one of your books, there are some real monsters in the world"
I look at him and my smile fades "I can't believe this is happening just something my brain is not equipped to handle, how is any of this real? "
David walks over picking up the blood bag and holding it out "does this look or smell fake to you?" you're a smart girl Lexi think about it, if I'm lying you would be able to tell. your scared and with everything that has happened the past few days you have every right to be, but know that I mean it when I say that there is real evil in the world"
crossing my arms I watch as I'm overcome by fear "look I just want to leave, please let me leave this is too much, you said you would drive me home if I wanted to leave and I do" David's arm drops and he nods grabbing his jacket he opens the door and extends his arm out "fine I can't make you stay I'll take you to your dorm" we get into the car and the only sound we hear is the rain falling outside, the silence in the air is heavy and I can't help but look at him slightly out of the corner of my eye his jaw is tight and he is gripping the wheel with such force it could break any second.
we pull up to my building and I go to get out but he grabs my arm "I'm sorry you had to find out this way, please don't say anything about this to anyone. I'll leave you alone if that's what you want but please just don't say anything" I roll my eyes and pull away from his grip as I slam the door and head into the building without even a glance back.
I walk into my room and slowly sit on my bed as tears start to fall from both fear and pain, four days ago I was just a college student working at Starbucks now I'm bruised up and tangled in a hot mess of craziness with my teacher. ruby comes rushing in the room and hugs me tightly "omg your here!"
I wince and struggle to move out of her grasp "yes I'm here still banged up though need to be gentle" I wiggle out and move back. ruby looks me over "damn girl someone did a number on you" she reaches for my neck and I pull away "uh yeah was a strange night but um David found me and bandaged me up" I tell ruby all about what happened in the alleyway leaving some details out about David, even though I rolled my eyes at him I still felt I owned him for helping me so after I told ruby everything she got me some pain medicine and I passed out shortly after.
running through the woods I look behind me as someone is chasing after me, I trip over a branch and land as I cut my hand on a rock I look up to see David leaning over me with sharp fangs , I close my eyes and open them I'm back in my bed. It's Tuesday no class today thank goodness i don't think I could handle seeing David again so soon.
