Vampire Friday o3.24.17

ff398-10960463_10152989497960675_2412694568105959894_oWelcome to Vampire Friday!

Where we last left off Karlea offered Jake and Vaughn her blood to heal them from their injuries. They both managed to stop drinking from her before she died. Jake took it upon himself to take care of her while she was recovering from the blood loss. She woke up but was still very weak. She asked Jake if he and Vaughn were all healed before passing out in Jake’s arms…

sixsunday2Jake stared at the human in his arms. She had strained herself to ask if he and Vaughn were okay; humans shouldn’t care if they survived being the monsters that he and Vaughn were, but this girl was different.
She moaned in her sleep, snapping Jake out of his thoughts, as her heart began to tank – beating slower and slower.
“Shit.” Jake said, as he held her, he needed to hurry.
He bit his wrist and dripped his blood into her mouth, hoping that at that exact moment her heart wouldn’t stop, or else she wouldn’t be waking up human.
He listened to her heartbeat slowly increase as he was relieved that she didn’t die when his blood hit her tongue – her waking up as a vampire wouldn’t go very well. Not so soon anyway and under these circumstances. Although, when was a human ever turned vampire under good circumstances, Jake knew it rarely happened. And this was a perfect bad situation for it to happen.
He placed her back in his bed. She stirred as he covered her and then fell back into sleep, her heart staying steady. 

Many hours later, Karlea opened her eyes. She squinted at the clock and then at the drapery on the balcony doors, she could see the daylight peeking though a tiny section of the drapery that hadn’t been closed right. She looked across the room and saw Jake sitting in a chair, his laptop, closed, on a coffee table next to him.
“Hey.” She said.
“Hey.” Jake replied, as she sat up. She looked next to her to find the rest of Jake’s big bed untouched.
“Did you sleep? I mean, I didn’t mean to put you out of your bed.”
Jake smiled and laughed slightly, “Sleep isn’t a requirement. I mean I could, but I don’t have to.”
“Right.” She answered. “So, you’ve been sitting in a chair watching me sleep? How long have I been out?”
“Almost, two days. And I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on you to make sure your heart didn’t give out…again. It already did once yesterday. You almost died. I had to give you my blood to heal you.”
Jake sat next to her on the bed. “If your heart had stopped in the moment I gave you my blood, you wouldn’t have woken up human. You don’t want to be what I am.”
A wave of anger came over him, “What you did was extremely dangerous and usually deadly.”
“I knew you and Vaughn wouldn’t kill me.” She replied.
“I’m a vampire, you can’t trust me. If you die in my arms, I don’t want to have to make that decision of whether you stay dead or if I get selfish and make you like me. You really don’t want this.”
Karlea jumped off of the bed, “I should…I should go.”
“Its not safe for you out there.”
“Its not safe for me in here. Just don’t worry about me, I’ll be okay. Sorry for all the trouble you got in because of me.”
She headed towards the door. Jake used his speed to grab unto her and pull her into him, forcefully, making her gasp.
“I’m sorry,” Jake spoke softly, “I just don’t want this to be your fate. Not yet, hopefully not ever –”
“Look, I get it,” Karlea interrupted, “You just met me and ended up coming to my rescue. You don’t have to try to protect me. I’m just going to survive day by day, like I’ve always done. And if its really as dangerous for me out there as you say, then it should all be over rather quickly.”

Welcome to my favorite day of the week! 

I am continuing on with my story BloodLust – the first in the series – I had started from the very beginning of it all, where Karlea met Jake and Vaughn at the club she works at. Later that night, Jake saves Karlea from being killed by a random vampire as she walks home, figuring out Jake (and Vaughn’s) secret. Jake walks her home only to find her apartment ransacked. Jake brings her to his apartment for the night and recruits Vaughn to help him go find answers about what kind of trouble Karlea is in. As she waits for them to return, she decides to get some rest after such a long night. She awakens to Jake and Vaughn coming back, badly injured and in need of live human blood. Where we left off last week, she had just walked into the room, and Vaughn warned her it wasn’t safe for her to be there.

sixsunday2“I know it’s not, but I can heal you.” She said.

Her voice was almost drowned out by the sound of her heartbeat for Jake and Vaughn.

Jake rolled off the couch, onto his feet, not as gracefully as he usually was. He could barely stand. He looked like a corpse.

“No! I will not risk taking your life! Vaughn, will. I will not.” Jake said, trying to stand between her and Vaughn. He would use whatever he had left in him, to keep her from being killed. Even though, once he perished, Vaughn would just kill her anyway, but it was innate for him to protect her. 

Vaughn smiled, Karlea noticing his fangs for the first time. He took another step forward, Jake putting out his arm in case Vaughn went in to attack, in hopes to catch him before he could reach Karlea. Even now, Vaughn was enjoying keeping his progeny on his toes. 

Karlea looked at them, she stepped slowly towards her messenger bag that was still sitting on the floor from earlier. Vaughn watched her like he was watching prey, as Jake watched both her and Vaughn.

Karlea grabbed her pocket knife she had shoved into the water bottle pocket.
“You helped me, please let me help you.” She said. 

She flipped it open and dragged the blade across her skin from her shoulder to the top of her breast. She moaned quietly as she felt the sting of the wound and her blood start to drip down. She dropped the knife.

Jake and Vaughn both jumped back from the sight of her blood, trying to control themselves. The sweet smell of her blood hit both of them. Vaughn was reminded of his taste of her at the club. 

She watched as Jake’s eyes turned red. He stood back in between her and Vaughn with both of his arms out again. 

“Karlea…”Jake spoke slowly, his voice strained, his eyes changing to black, losing all self control, “Run. Please, run.”

Karlea shook her head and stood there. Vaughn went to attack, but Jake caught him and used whatever strength he had left to shove Vaughn aside. Jake used his speed to appear in front of Karlea. He put his arm around her and pulled her into him as she jumped in surprise. He placed his hand on her cheek as she breathed heavily.

“I’m so sorry.” He said, Karlea seeing his fangs for the first time. She wasn’t scared, she felt she was finally where she needed to be, right in their world. He licked the blood dripping down her before slamming his fangs into her. Her nails clawed into his arm and he felt her body tense up, but not in pain and fear, in excitement. She didn’t struggle or try to pull away, she just let him take what he wanted. 

He was finally getting that taste he had been denying himself all night. Her blood was sweeter than he even imagined it. Sweeter than what Vaughn had described. Which meant this could get addictive if she actually lived through this. He tried to remind himself that every sip towards healing was a sip away from her life.

Vaughn stood back and watched, elated that his progeny finally had the balls to drink from her. Jake’s severe wounds already healing. However, he still needed to heal, too. Karlea opened her eyes and did her best to hold out her wrist to him. Vaughn went over to her, taking her wrist to his mouth. He felt her body tense up as he bit into her wrist. He drank, but it wasn’t enough. He pulled away. He pushed her hair away from the side of her neck that wasn’t occupied by Jake and bit down. it wouldn’t be the first time, he and Jake shared a feeding, although it had been years.

Between the sensations of Jake and Vaughn feeding, and the light headedness, it felt as though there was no ground beneath her feet. With her eyes closed, the darkness began to spin and she didn’t have the strength to hold onto Jake for support, her hand slipping off of his body, however they both easily held her up with no effort. She tried to open her eyes to find her way out of the blackness, but couldn’t. She was losing herself down in it, eventually being swallowed up.

Vampire Friday o3.o3.17

Its been a long time, but here I am once again! This is my favorite day of the week.

So, where I last left off with my story BloodLust – the first in the series – I had started from the very beginning of it all, where Karlea met Jake and Vaughn at the club she works at. Later that night, Jake saves Karlea from being killed by a random vampire as she walks home, figuring out Jake (and Vaughn’s) secret. Jake walks her home only to find her apartment ransacked. Jake brings her to his apartment for the night and recruits Vaughn to help him go find answers about what kind of trouble Karlea is in. As she waits for them to return, she decides to get some rest after such a long night.

Karlea awoke to a door bursting open outside of Jake’s bedroom. She heard commotion and then the door slammed shut. She heard dishes and glasses crashing to the kitchen floor.
She quickly climbed out of Jake’s bed and quietly tiptoed down the long hallway. She cautiously peered around the corner to see Jake lying on the sofa, his torso covered in blood. She could only slightly see his face. He looked even more pale than he usually was from what she could see. She couldn’t see his eyes, but she noticed the dark circles around them, that made him look completely dead. His body shaking, so close to complete and final death. Vaughn yanked a blood bag from the back of the fridge and opened it. He didn’t look like he was doing well either, but better than Jake at the moment. He rushed over to Jake’s side the best he could.
“You need live blood, not this shit.” Vaughn said, as Jake’s shaking bloody hand, reached for it slowly.
Vaughn fell sitting on the floor, “We both do.”
Jake sucked down some of the blood before he began to choke on it. He coughed and threw up blood onto the floor. Way more blood than what he just took in.
“I need to find you a human.” Vaughn said, grabbing the rest of the blood bag and drinking it. He threw down the bag when it was empty and waited for it to help with his wounds and his hunger.
“You’re in no shape,” Jake slowly said with a raspy voice as if he were struggling for air.
“This isn’t doing shit.” Vaughn said.
“Go heal yourself. Its too late for me. Take care of her.”
“You know how I will take care of her, Jake.”
“I know. She’ll be better off.”

Karlea stepped out from the hallway.
“Karlea.” Vaughn said as he stood up. “Its not safe for you.”
His eyes were the darkest black as hunger took over. He took one step towards her.
