God I hated this. I just hated being this beast in human form. I came to this hell hole to get an education. If I'd known vampires were living here I would've come here with stakes and silver crosses.
I missed my friends and family so much, and I knew I could never see them again. I wanted to die (well I was already dead), I wanted to simply fade away... but the thing is, I didn't know how to. You would've thought that is would be easy. That I could simply go out into the sun and turn into dust. Or I could just put a stake through my heart. But it wasn't that simple. I had tried everything that they spoke of in stories, but nothing worked. Sun light didn't affect vampires at all, and the stake just went in and out like a knife in jelly with thick, runny blood inside and it barely even hurt at all.
Since I couldn't kill myself, I made it my duty to protect any other human that came here so they didn't have the same fate.
I could never forgive the bastard, Claude for turning me into a vamp, and I wasn't gonna let him do the same to Ren
Ren was okay. For now. But if I had been even a second too late, she would either dead or a vamp.
But Ren was more in danger of them than any other human here. She had special blood that vampires have been searching for before humans even started telling stories of vampires. It was the blood of the purest human. Only one vampire had ever tasted it before. One taste of this blood will drive a vamp crazy with thirst and craving more. It also makes a vampire somewhat stronger and more powerful (which is never good for a human). No vamp could have the strength and will power to resist the craving and the thirst.
I made it my prime authority to guard her and protect her no matter what the consequence.
It was lunch time now and I left Ren to be with her new friends (there were a few other humans here too; all at St. Dusk Academy for the same reason, none knowing the real purpose of the school), but I never went too far and I never let her out of my sight. I sat on my own at the closest table available to hers. I supposed that was for the best, since I could now protect her and (some of) the other humans at the same time.
But what would happen if she befriended a vampire that wanted to drain her? 'No, that couldn't happen - instinct would keep her away.' Then why did she seem so comfortable with me? Why didn't she scream at the top of her lungs when Claude grabbed her? I had to keep close and watch her every move. I couldn't rely on her instinct.
Ren was now walking out of the canteen with one of her friends, Kizumi Yamada, so I followed them out into the frosty autumn air. It was almost deserted outside. Other than the occasional human passing by, there was hardly anyone there, and there was certainly no-one I could see that was of any threat to Ren or Kizumi. But still... better safe than sorry.
i decided to keep a distance, and from the distance, I could faintly hear them speaking and it seemed that Ren wasn't the only person that had gotten attacked by a vamp this morning.
"Did you recognise the attacker?"
"Not a clue. But whoever it was, he was a complete wimp!" Kizumi laughed. "All I did was kick him in head once and he went runnin'. Ha! I have no idea what he did to make the girl faint. I had to half drag her all the way to First Aid on the other side of school!"
"The thing I'm wondering is, how come the teachers don't know about this, and if they do, why don't they do anything about the whole dammed thing?"
Kizumi was suddenly serious again. "What if ... maybe... the teachers are a part of it."
"I highly doubt that."
"How else can you explain all this chaos and no action? And you said it yourself how can they not know? Two whole attacks in one day. There was probably more, but we just don't know about it. And given all that, what else can we expect?"
"Yeah, but... expect what? Really what are meant to be a part of?"
There was a slight pause.
Kizumi sighed. "I don't know."
It was strange but for some reason I had the feeling that we were being followed. I looked behind but the yard was literally deserted. 'It's just my imagination'
I sighed. "Sure..."
We changed our direction, and started walking towards the gazebo. I was thinking about what Kizumi just said. There had to be a reason why all this was happening. Maybe...
"Ren look out!"
