Chapter 2: Realization...
A Vampire.... Thats what I saw... It was right there in front of me.It seemed like a Really bad nightmare.But as much as I wanted it to be a nightmare, I knew I was very much awake and conscious.It was all real.The Vampire thats sucking on that helpless womans blood was real.Thoughts ran threw my mind.Should I call for help and save that Poor woman? Or Should I save myself and run inside?No! that woman was as good as dead at this point.even if that Vampire let her go she still won't be able to make it due to the huge amount of blood loss.Then I made up my mind.I decided I was just going to lay there with my head down and let the Vampire finish feeding and hopefully he won't notice me and go back to where he came from.As I was fighting with my own thoughts, the Vampire had finished feeding on the woman.After he was done, he just threw her lifeless corpse away like it was nothing but a Juice box.He pleased himself and Quinched his thirst then he, very mercilessly threw her body away.I ducked my head down, trying not to attract his attention.He turned around and starting walking back into the alley.I was just about to take a breath of relief when I heard my Dad calling me."Jack,Get down here right now, New years eve should be spent with family and not with the solitude of the roof".As soon as I heard Dad, I started shaking with the fear that the Vampire might have heard him.Could his hearing sense be strong enough to hear it? Was he going to kill me and go after my Family next? And what happened next scared me to the point that I cannot describe.The Vampire who was walking towards the dark alley,Going to back to where he might have come from, Suddenly stopped.As soon as he did, It felt like my heart was going to pop out of my mouth.I tried to stay calm and started coming up with other possible reasons for him stopping.Convincing myself that he hadn't heard my dad.As I was trying to regain my confidence, as I was trying to calm my nerves.The Unthinkable happened.The Vampire turned around, and Looked straight into my eyes.My whole body froze with fear.It felt like the temperature had dropped down to -50!.I couldn't see his face.But what I saw was far worse.As he was starring at me, I saw his dark red and black eyes.They were red in the middle and completely dark on the outside.It was like starring into the abyss.A wormhole of Darkness.I could feel his hatred.I could feel the pain he had caused that helpless woman when he was sucking her blood.My body couldn't move.I was completely frozen in Fear and I couldn't think straight.As I was trying to snap out of the spell that the Vampire had trapped me in, he then turned around and slowly started walking into the alley again."Why didn't he kill me and suck my blood? Was it because he already Sucked the blood of that woman? No, A Vampires Lust for human blood can never be quinched".Then it hit me,"Maybe he left me alive so I could live with the fear of Vampires inside me? Or maybe so It could haunt me for the rest of my life?" Vampires Have a very Demented and twisted mind.I knew I couldn't Understand the Reason behind this.The Reason why I was still breathing.Why I was still alive."Are you coming down or should I come up there?", My dad called again with a harsh tone.I quickly tried to regain my senses and Replied with a very frightened tone,"Coming, dad".
As I came down to the living room I saw that Dad was watching t.v and Mom was preparing dinner.I was still in shock because of what had happened.I still couldn't believe that Vampires were Real.My dad Looked at me with a confused face and said,"Why do you have that troubled look on your face?".I didn't Answer.I didn't even hear him because I was in a trauma of shock."You look like you've seen a ghost",he said with a sarcastic remark.Then I thought to myself,"I wish it was a ghost".I was afraid because I didn't know if that Vampire I saw was the ony one.Were there more of 'em?If so,then Where were they?Are they all So blood thirsty and Savage?.I decided to calm myself down.And I decided to tell my parents of what I had just seen regardless of,wether or not they would believe me.I told Mom to come sit next to Dad so I could Explain it to them in the most reasonable and sane way possible."Mom,Dad I saw something on the roof tonight".Dad Questioned,"Was it a ghost?".My dad making his usual sarcastic remarks on everything.He was never able to take things too seriously.Mom asked worriedly,"Is there something wrong,honey?".I knew I had to tell them exactly what I had seen up there.So I did.I explained it all to them exactly As I had seen them.Then Dad said,"That was like a scene from some stupid horror movie".As expected he didn't beleive me.So I tried to convince them."Im not lying,I really did see a vampire".Then mom asked,Playing along with my nonesense,"how do you know it was a vampire,honey"."I saw him drink a womens blood right infront of me!".My parents got quiet for a minute and looked at each other.Then dad said,"Are you on some kind of drugs?",Angrily."No! Im not,Why won't you believe me?!",after saying that I ran upto my room.I regretted my deciesion of telling my parents.Maybe I wasn't going to see another vampire again.Hopefully... but What If I did?...What if it came for my family?...What if there were more?..All these questions popped in my head as I was lying in my room on my bed trying to find some excuse to forget about the events that had just happened.
I have been through alot of grim situations and alot of bad stuff has happened to me over the years but nothing could possibly come close to what happened that night.I have this queer problem of overthinking and overdoing everything.I'm a very curious and open minded person but at the same time I'm usually very pessemistic too.I grabbed my phone and earphones and jumped on the bed to listen to some music before I go to sleep.I just wanted to sleep and wake up not remembering what had happened tonight.I wanted it to all be just one terrifying nightmare.But even I knew,deep down that it was all too real.As I lay there listening to my music,my eyes started giving into sleep.I was starring at the ceiling.I blinked a few times but somehow regain control.Then I closed my eyes for a while.Then I thought I heard someone calling me.I opened my eyes to find that it was completely dark in my room.The lights were off for some reason.I immediately got up,pulled out my headpones and asked mom what was going on.She replied,"Nothing to worry about,honey its just a power outage".I found it awfully stange as something of this sort doesn't usually happen in our neighbourhood.As I was inspecting the situation,I heard a little girl scream.It sounded like it came from a few houses away.I was confused of what to make of it.Then I just started pretending that I never heard anything in the first place.But to my disbelief,It came again.This time it sounded like an older woman.And this time it came from a closer house.I knew I wasn't just hearing things.I didn't know what was going on but what I did know is that I should keep myself calm and go downstairs to see what my parents could make of it.I got down worriedly and asked my mom if she had heard the scream and As much as I would have loved for her to lie to me and say no she hadn't.She said yes,she did.My father said the same.As we stood their starring each other with disbelief and feelings of concern,I heard the kitchen window crack.Like someone had thrown a rock through it.
I slowly started approaching The kitchen with severe caution,but My dad stopped me and said that he would go check it out.I stood there with mom as my dad slowly approached the kitchen area.He stopped and signalled us to stay where we were.We nodded in concern.He then started walking slowly into the kitchen.Some time had passed since my dad had walked into the kitchen.It felt like hours but I knew it had only been a few minutes.We hadn't heard a single sound since my dad walked into the kitchen.We were starting to get worried,when My dad finally walked out with a smile indicating that we're being silly."It must have been the neighbours window because the kitchen window isn't broken",he said with a relieving tone.We all took a sigh of relief..As we were releaving ourselves of worried thoughts,The unthinkable happened.A dark shadow of a man appeared behind my dad.As he came closer to my father,little by little the shadow started dissapearing into a person.That Dark shadowy figure grabbed my father by his shoulders.Mom scream in terror,"Look out! honey!".With all this Terror and fright I somehow managed to focus on the mans face when I realized that it was a Vampire...Not just any vampire,but the same vampire whom had killed that old lady earlier.He pulled my dads head aside and bit into his neck.I knew I had to do something to stop him.I looked arouind for something when my eyes spotted a bat next to the cupboard.I quickly ran to get it."No! Jack,get back here!",my mother shouted instinctively.I completely ignored her as I was too focused at the task at hand.I picked up the bat and started running towards that demon in hopes of somehow saving my dad.I started hitting him on his legs as hard as I could with the bat.I wanted to somehow disorientate him.But to no avail.It was not working.Then I tried hitting him directly in the head.I took one viscious swing at him.But that didn't work either.I was about to lose hope when my mother ran across the room with a wrench which she somehow found and hit the vampire directly between the eyes.That seemed to had startled him a bit.But then with the push of one hand he threw my mother across the room.I tried again with the bat but he stopped my attack and along with the bat,Threw me all the way across the room.I got my sense together and got back up to somehow stop the vampire but it was too late.He had finished feasting on my dads blood.He pulled his fangs out of his neck and looked at me with a smirk.As if he were saying,"You're next!".My body started shivering horendously.He threw my fathers dead carcus into the kitchen.I turned around to see if my mom hadn't noticed this nightmare,but unfortunately she had.But she knew she had to get me,if not her self to safety."Gimme your hand,jack! We're getting out of here",she said with unbelievable courage.I did so.We started running out of the house.As my mom was pulling me away from our once peaceful and joyful home,I began to lose myself in my own thoughts,again.I couldn't believe my father was actually dead.I couldn't believe anything that had happened.It was too much to take in.I started crying like a baby.Tears rolling down my cheeks as I pushed as hard As I could to run away.
My mom suddenly stopped.I turn around and saw that the vampire somehow made it outside of the house and was standing right infront of us.He lifted his hand and moved his index finger left and right.Signalling that we were'nt going anywhere.He grabbed me by my shirt.I could feel his Cold lifeless hands on me.They were as cold as the weather was that night.My mom pulled me toward herself as the vampire did the same.I started punching the vampire in the face as hard as I could.But it had no effect on him.My mom,in desperation raked his eyes with her nails and he let go of me.What my mom Said to me after that,I still remember it till this day and that is exactly what keeps me going every single day.Its what gives me the strength to live on.She hugged me as tight as she could and whispered into my ear,"You have to run,Jack.You have to live.For me.."After hearing that I was stunned.Did she knew she was going to die? why would she say something like that?The vampire regained his sight and tried to grab me again but my mom pushed me away and he caught my mo instead.As he was about to plung his fangs into her neck,she signaled me to run away.I was confused at that point.Part of me wanted to ruin away and not even look back.But the other part of me wanted to run to my moms aid and somehow find a way to save her from that monstrosity.Deep down I knew what I had to do.Even if I tried to help my mom,I'd still be helpless against that monster.My mom would still die.Not only that but she would die in vain because after killing my mom the vampire will probabaly kill me.So I did what she told me to do.Tears rolled down my cheeks.My mom was smiling.She wanted me to live on.She wanted me to have a life.That is why she was prepared to sacrifice her own.I will never forget what my mother did for me.I turned around and started running as fast as I could into the woods.
