NIGHTS OF HALLOW
Plights of a Vampire.
n was taking another turn which he didn like.
Hearing Marcos clipped words, Mrs. Williams nervously laughed and clapped her hands ”Of course, you take care of her. Ill leave now. ”
Marco stood there and watched the woman leave. Though she said she was leaving, he had seen the disappointment in her eyes for not gathering enough gossip. He shook his head and went back inside the house.
Inside the house, Perdita sat up on the bed when she heard the sound of the door and she saw her brother walk in.
”How are you feeling now? ” Marco inquired with a worried look on his youthful face.
”Im fine, but I still feel the itch in my throat. I want more blood ” Perdita replied trying to hold herself back.
Marco joined her on the bed and sat beside her. He gently took her hand in his and rubbed it with his thumb.
”Don worry sis, hold back a little longer. We
e almost there in turning back to a human. It might not be now, but maybe later in the future ”
Perdita shook her head negatively. Her lips set in a thin line as a deep frown marred her face ”Do you think we will turn back? Every day, the urge to take blood is growing stronger and I feel my control is snapping. Do you think the pill is working? ”
Marco took a deep breath and whispered ”Have faith Perdita, the pills are working really fine and in no time we will become humans again. That medicine man told us so ” Marco assured her but it felt like he was also trying to hold on to their little hope.
When they were newly turned into vampires, they had gone to a medicine man who also helped people during their transformation and sought a drug to turn them back into a human. The man had given them a pill but he also said he was not sure it will work. He remembered the first week when they took the pill, they did not have any thirst for blood but after that week, the thirst only increased little by little. And as time passed, though people didn notice it, they had begun to show vampire traits.
The only good thing Marco and Perdita appreciated about the pill was that they only had to drink a cats blood and their thirst will be quenched. This was the reason for rearing the cats. They have not drunk a humans blood before and they believed the pill was working.
Perdita turned her face away from Marco. She didn want him to see the vulnerability in them. She was the elder, and as an elder, she was meant to take care of them both but he was the only one shouldering their problems every time.
The increase in her thirst for blood had become alarming to her because as days passed, not only did she want more blood from a cat, but she also craved something more. This was why earlier in the market when that vampire man said something about pulling the heart of a human and drinking their blood was pure pleasure to his kind, she had the urge to taste and feel what it felt like. His words had unconsciously triggered her vampires dark side which made him know what she was.
Marco watched his sister who appeared to be deep in thought. He squeezed her hand and Perdita turned to look at him.
”He knows and we might get exposed. ” The fear earlier returned to Perditas eyes as she told Marco everything that happened in the market.
”Don worry sis, he won tell on us. One thing Ive come to know about vampires is that they can be trustworthy more than humans. ” It still felt somehow on his tongue each time he used the word Humans. Life had many unexpected twists and turns.
Marcos eyes looked distant and he continued to say, ”If he wanted to expose us, he would have done so but he didn say anything, at least not for now ”
Perdita silently nodded her head. She couldn agree more with what he said. Humans unlike vampires turn against each other faster than one could imagine. She had seen how they killed their fellow humans because they were turned into vampires and she knew they would do the same to them if they discovered who they are.
But now another person knew of their secret, she couldn help but worry about the future. It wouldn take long for the humans to notice just like how she was discovered today. Her heart felt tight with guilt for being the one who got them exposed. She knew her brother was doing everything in his power to protect them but all she did was cause trouble.
Marco hugged Perdita close knowing what she will be thinking. He had seen her eyes were clouded with pain and guilt which he didn want. He was a man and he will do anything to make her feel happy. He rubbed her back and whispered over her head that everything will be alright.
But was everything alright? Or was trouble only brewing at the corner?
