Visits and VodkaI glanced at the bottle in my hand, hardly registering it was almost empty. The vodka had done absolutely nothing except leave a sour taste in my mouth. I threw the bottle as hard as I could, watching the glass shatter against the rocks.
Suddenly, I felt an intense pain in my abdomen. I curled up, pressing my lips shut. No good. The contents of my stomach spewed out across the sand. My mind went all clinical, noting there wasn't very much there.
I closed my eyes and tried not to focus on how much it hurt, but there was no ignoring it. I felt dizzy for a moment, then felt something lightly brushing my face. My eyes opened to a bleak landscape, all in greyscale. My heart lifted and I stood up slowly. I was at the Parade.
I started walking around, nodding at the killjoys I had known in life, and some I had gotten friendly with in my many visits. Finally, I saw my intended target.
It's funny how I didn't know her name until a couple days before
Revelations - My Blood Lust Romance 5Analise
I spun around to face my horrified friend, my hands full of bandages. I started to panic and stood up. "Frankie... It's not what you think..."
He glared at the bandages I had unwrapped and left on the couch. "Well what is it then?" I cringed away as he shouted at me. I managed to back myself into a corner as I shivered, curling up to protect my head.
"I didn't do it.... I promise...." Tears filled my vision.
I felt a set of arms wrapping around me and tried hard not to flinch. Frank rocked me a little and tried to be soothing.
"I know... I'm sorry, I didn't mean to shout... it's just all happening at once. Gerard's a vampire, you're still being abused and now this... I just don't know how much longer I can take all this." I heard him sigh, and it broke my heart. I never wanted to hurt Frankie... Never that... I hated myself more for that than anything else.
"Okay... so who did it then?"
I shook my head. I couldn't possibly tell him
On a Bender - My Blood Lust Romance 4I looked at Frankie in surprise. Was he buying it too? He certainly didn't look impressed... His voice was skeptical as he spoke.
"You're a vampire."
Gerard looked miserable, missing the look of astonishment on Frankie's face.
"Wait... you're a vampire?! As in blood-sucking, can't-go-out-in-the-daylight vampire?"
My mouth formed a perfect "o".
"That's why you attacked me..." I started slowly. "The bruises probably smell sweeter... Since blood is on the surface...." Not to mention I was actually bleeding elsewhere. I glanced down at myself and rushed out of the room.
I saw Analise run out the door and breathed a sigh of relief. I kept a tight hold on myself as I kept explaining.
"When I got attacked... It wasn't a mugging... The cops scared her off."
Frank wiped some blood off his knuckles.
"But you were bitten and got infected through that... and now you're a vampire like her..." he was trying to put things together.
"More or less..." I
'Cuz I'm Broken... - My Blood Lust Romance 3Frank opened the door for me and hurried me inside. He kept his arm around me, probably to reassure us both. I know I was thankful.
Once we made it up the stairs to Gerard's apartment, Frankie knocked on the door. "Hey Gerard, it's us. Open up." There was no answer, so he finally rummaged around for the spare key. As he opened the door, I saw the inside of the apartment. It looked pretty deserted.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a black vase with black, wilted roses inside it on an end-table. So the flowers had made it there, after all. Glad to see Gerard was enjoying them. I shook my head as I took in the kitchen, which was starting to gather dust. An odd thing, considering no one had seen him leave the apartment in so long.
Before I could take much in, I heard Gerard's voice from the bedroom. "You two can stay on the couch... Food's in the fridge, and you've been here often enough to know where everything is, right Frank?"
"Yeah. Uh... Gee? Are you okay in th
Will Anyone Love me? - My Blood Lust Romance 2"Lets go find Gerard..."
He smiled and nodded. "Yeah, let's go find him " He held the door open for me, then closed it and locked it behind him. Frankie slipped his hand into mine and led me outside.
Once we made it outside, I noticed dark had fallen, and clouds covered the moon, making the sky completely black. The streets were quiet, which was a surprise. Frankie and I both looked like chimneys, it was so chilly outside. Frank was grinning a little, and I pulled my hand out of his as I stood in a patch of moonlight. I spread my arms and felt the corners of my mouth lift. I closed my eyes and basked in the soft glow.
"The night is so forgiving.... So cool, and sweet...."
After a moment, I felt Frank staring at me, and felt the sweet breeze against my collarbones. My shirt had slid away from my neck, and Frank was staring at the molted colors. "Oh, Lise " he breathed, brushing my hair away from my neck. I glanced down, but I could only meet his eyes for a split second before
Tears of Black - My Blood Lust Romance 1I watched the sun sinking behind the buildings as I trudged through the streets. The wind had started to pick up, but I had forgotten to pick up my jacket on the way out. I listened to the birds as they chirped to their young in the nests, and tasted a fog building. Yeah, that sounds weird, but fog has a particular way of making itself known.
I was on my way to see Frank, one of my close friends from my teen years. Jeez, they seemed so far away, but it was only a couple years ago. I had just endured my eighteenth birthday last month, miserable because my parents had gotten wind of my spending time with Frank. He was one of the people my parents would hate on sight because he had a long fringe of hair, shaved at the back, and he was covered in tattoos. Add into the mix that he smokes and drinks, and they banned me from seeing him. Naturally, I had run away to my boyfriend, a mistake in hindsight But I was nearly to his house, so I put that out of my mind.
I jogged up t
Blood and drugsWe got out successfully
Party was now behind the wheel of the car, and I was staring out the window. I could hardly believe I had shot my own mother. Even if it was in the knee, she was still my mom, and part of me expected her to jump out of the back and beat me for it.
I pushed those thoughts out of my mind and took the bandana out of my hair to use as a makeshift bandage, since the first one was soaked.
My hands were shaking with exhaustion and nerves being stretched to their limits. I glanced over at Party, who was still looking rather pale. His eyes were fixed on our path and he was wearing his poker face. Somehow, I knew I was in trouble.
"Why" he asked softly. My heart pounded at the disappointment that tinged his voice.
"Why what?" I asked. I was almost positive I knew what though.
"Why the pills?" he kept watching the road and I was partly glad of it. That way he couldn't read my expressions.
I could barely hear myself as I replied "To get in that much easier."
