She was running down the street, a bunch of people following right after. She's been running for hours, the baby in her hands fast asleep. Her feet were aching real bad by now and her pace got slower and slower. Running got harder and harder- Suddenly she stopped in her tracks turning to face them.
Once again you woke up, sweat making your clothes stick to your body a silent scream on the lips.
Just a bad dream again.
The same as everytime.
It was time to stand up now. Your masters will be home soon and you still had to prepare dinner. After putting on the black uniform you went towards the kitchen.
A cold hand came from behind you trailing it's fingers from your chin over your cheek and pulling your hair behind your ears.
A chill went down your spine though you knew whose hand it was. They were back and hungry.
"My apologies Master Key, but I couldn't finish in time." Your already pale face got even paler.
Your fingers crossed the scars on your neck that were about to heal again.
"Will you ever learn it? We don't do it on purpose you know? I mean you grew up with us and we cared for you the way we should..."
"Yes Master." You bowed down and followed him to the dinning room.
Once again you were shaking. They would bite you again.
You were lying on the couch in the darkened living room. The crimson Curtains closed, only a small strand of light shone through in the middle.
You had your eyes closed as you felt small droplets running down your neck landing on the white towel you had put carefully over the armrest before you leaned on it. The burning was just a side-effect from the salty tears rolling over the once again opened wounds.
"Sorry." It sounded from the doorway.
You stood up just to fall to the ground seconds after.
"Come on, you know you shouldn't stand up after... dinner." Taemin said walking over to you.
You slid backwards so you were sitting right behind the small sun-stripe shining through the whole room. Feeling you body shivering slightly you grabbed your neck to stop the blood from running down and sinking into your collar.
I stood there, not able to go forward. It hurt everytime she tried escaping from us. Even more when there was pure fear ever so readable in her eyes. It stung my heart knowing she was scared of us. And I was sorry for biting her but when we're coming home we're always so hungry that we can't wait. Don't misunderstand me, we literally can't wait. It's not like we're out the whole night for nothing. We have to work too, in my case I'm earning my money by dancing with customers in different night clubs. What the others do? I don't know. We don't meddle with each others life's outside the mansion. And when the nights are about to end we haven't taken anything to us. It's just pure need by that time. An uncontrollable desire. It's hard enough to control the urge to just rip her apart.
Why we don't transform her? Because she's better of alive. And when she's finally able to work outside we will let her go. But for now, she is just a 16 year old girl who grew up with vampires.
Taemin was staring at you, but his eyes were emotionless. On good days you would have sit with him, listening to his stories. Stories about the 'Good old days' like he used to say. Stories from the time he was still a kid. 'It's been more than a century,' he started most of his tales or said 'Before I became what I am now'. But today wasn't one of those. He was a good guy, you knew it, but being scared was only natural when someone hurts you and today he did hurt you.
With a big sigh and a last look straight into your eyes he turned and went out the door. Your heart started beating at a normal rate again and you released the wounds you were holding the whole time. Your fingers felt sticky with all the blood but you couldn't care less. Slowly you got up leaning on the drawer with your clean hand going back to the couch. Seeing that the white towel was almost completely red you decided to get a new one.
You took it and went to the laundry room. In a bucket of water with bleach you let it soak and could see the water turning pink.
