I put my hand in the coat's pocket which I was wearing. The snow falling. My head looked up, enjoying the snowflakes that touched my face. My hand was outstretched, touching the pieces of ice that fell from the sky.
Don’t want to linger outside with the cold, bone-piercing air. I went back to walking while yawning a few times, withstanding the whacking drowsiness. My face must look terrible. My eye circumference looks blacker than usual.
We both didn’t sleep to look after Tiara. She was lying unconscious worries us. William has even asked the master for permission to prevent Tiara from being included in the assault mission -without the girl’s knowledge- because her condition is not improving.
I also agree with our leader. The doctor said that there was no problem or disease. However, the fact is that Tiara has been lying in a hospital bed for fifteen days. William lied, saying she only fainted for two days. We couldn’t do anything but pray for her to wake up quickly.
I saw a leather watch on my wrist. Twelve o’clock. I quickly sped up my pace. The road is quite quiet, only a few cars pass by. I have to stay alert, because I’m not a fighter like Tiara who can feel the aura of a vampire.
There was a scream from the alley which not far in front of me. I swear to myself. I clearly heard the screams in the midnight. Furthermore, I stepped slowly, trying not to make a sound.
I’m afraid I can’t detour because I have to go through that narrow alley to get home. It was the only quickest route for me to get to base camp. I pulled out a black gun from behind the jacket, preparing for the worst-case scenario. My hazel iris widened to see a man in a black suit sucking her victim’s blood. The woman’s hand appears to pull firmly on the man’s clothes, while screaming weakly for help.
I almost screamed to see the office lady’s body turn dry. Looks more like a skull wrapped in skin. Then the man threw the woman’s body indiscriminately. Like a useless thrash. I shook my head slowly. Not. Vampires that I know don’t do this thing other than... Pure blood lineage.
“You want to keep peeking out, here?”
Shit! I quickly pointed my gun back. The man was suddenly standing in front of me. He just smiled thinly while glancing at the weapon in my hand.
“What is this? Is that the only ‘toy’ that you’re carrying?” he said dismissively.
‘Looks like he’s a noble vampire. I can’t possibly fight it alone. What am I supposed to do?!’
“Are you scared?”
“Scared of you? No.”
I’m trying to point a fist at him. Unfortunately, the man could evade my attack with ease. It’s only natural that compared to Tiara and William, my physical strength is far below them. A hard kick hit my stomach, causing my body to bounce a few feet and hit the wall behind me.
A deep red liquid was pouring out of my mouth. This asshole. The first time, I regret not practicing so often. The man looked at me as he walked closer. His red eyes lit up in the dark.
“Hey, are you guys weak like this? I didn’t expect it. If I were you, I’d be out of your fucking organization.”
My hands clenched strongly to hear the innuendo from this man’s mouth. He can underestimate me who can’t fight better. However, he should not insult our organization that I already consider being my family. I pulled over the hand of the man who was about to touch me.
I tried to get up and wipe the blood on my lips with my hands. “I’ll show you, if we’re not as weak as you think.”
My hand took a bow from behind my back. Then I pulled the bow rope. Three arrows came up from there. The white light envelops my arrows. I focused my eyes, directing the arrow to him.
I pointed those three arrows at the guy with the brunette hair. The arrows are streaking at lightning speed. The man tried to evade the air by doing a jump in the air. He avoided two arrows. However, another arrow scratched his right arm. I smiled contentedly to see him holding his arm while moaning a little in pain.
‘H-He’s not dead? Who’s he?’
I haven’t had time to launch another attack, the man in front of me just disappeared. My hazel eyes are staring around. I’m pretty sure that vampire is still around. Even if he’s a pure blood, it’s still going to be hard to survive the wounds of my gun.
“You looking for me, Ms. Archer?”
I looked up. The figure in the fancy suit stands on the balcony guardrail of one of the apartment buildings. He raises the angle of his lips to form a smirk. His hair was a little messy in the wind.
“We delay this fight. You will not die tonight, Miss Archer,” he said, winking at me.
He waved his arms before completely disappearing from there. My knees are limp. I fell, holding back the pain. I just realized who the vampire was. The famous second prince likes to play with many girls. Evan Kingsley. Despite his poor reputation for his habits, Evan is still a pure blood vampire. I’m actually a little relieved that guy let me go. Otherwise, of course, I’ve become his second dinner.
William and I were on our way back to base camp. The man’s silver sports car drove off the highway. My hand has recovered enough, too. Finally, Dr Peter allowed me to go home. Being in the hospital is boring. I don’t like it.“When we’re going to meet Master, Will?”“This afternoon.”“Really? Then let’s go home. Why we’re stopping?” I asked, realizing that our car was pulling over to the side of the road, turning into the parking lot of a convenience store.“Wait. I want to buy something,” William said, pointing at the convenience store next to their car with his chin.“I’ll wait here.”“Don’t go anywhere. I won’t be longer.”“Yes, Sir.”William smiled and got out of the car. I can
'When you're alone in the dark, he'll come.'..☘☘☘THE sound of lashes echoed throughout the underground prison. This vampire kingdom's prison is only lit by a few torches in the corridor. It's so dark. Cold. The stench of the prisoners' corpses stifle the air. Loud screams were heard from one of the rooms. A man of small stature was being tortured by several guards."ARGHHH!""Tell me, who is your master?" asked one of the guards to the man sitting on his knees with an iron chain shackled to his hands and feet.The man remained silent even though his entire body was covered in wounds from guards who whipped him relentlessly. Fresh blood was pouring all over her body. He has sworn allegiance to his master."Answer my question. Are you deaf, huh?!" snapped the bodyguard as he kicked the man in the stomach, his body hit the iron wall behind him.
‘No one noticed, after he’s eating your soul slowly.’..☘☘☘"DID you bring the box?"William pulled out a black box from inside his backpack. Later, he gave the box to the man whom he called as ‘master’ in front of the three of them. The man opens it slowly. A medium-sized roll of paper inside. He unrolled it on the table. Empty. There’s nothing written there.“What does that mean?”The man just smiled, responding to Tiara’s question. He then took a small folding knife from his suit pocket.“Why don’t we find out?”Tiara’s eyes rounded to see the handsome man hurt his own hand. Fresh blood flowed out of the wound on his hand. Then, he directed the droplets of blood on the paper. Within seconds, it formed an image of a droplet of blood.
‘She didn’t realize she opened that gate. There’s no way back.’..***“I have something to tell you,” William seemed to sigh before continuing, “I want to say... That I am—”“What are you two doing?”The man with the dark brown hair let go of his arms quickly. They turned towards Claire who was standing sculpted while staring at them with her eyes shocked. She is still trying to digest the situation of the two of them looking like cuddles. No, they did.“Ah, so this is what you guys do when I’m not around. You’re really brave, Will.”“Y-you misunderstood, okay!”“Haha. Just keep going. I came back because I left my wallet,” the girl said, picking up a black purse on the couch.“Did you meet someone earlier, Claire?” asked Tiara to the reddish-brown girl.Claire seemed a little surprised wh
‘Everyone has a secret they want to hide. Like a time bomb. It could explode.’..☘ ☘ ☘The pop music heard softly from the headphones of the girl who is experimenting with her laptop. Her pliable fingers dance quickly over the keyboard. Then she picks up a cup of hot chocolate next to her. She blew it slowly, then drank a little of the contents of the cup. Claire put the cup down and refocused. She was busy doing her hobby, hacked websites on the internet.The phone next to it vibrates, showing an incoming message. Her cheeks were a little dazzling to see the name on her phone screen. She quickly picked up the phone and opened the chat message.Wed | 7:45 AMYeong-jun: Morning.Claire: Morning ....Yeong-jun: Have you had breakfast?Claire: I haven’t had a chance. Just a cup
"When I’m say, ‘It’s okay.’ I just need you by my side."..☘ ☘ ☘THE sound of a digital alarm is interfering with the hearing of an eighteen-year-old girl. Her tiny hand slowly grabbed the clock and turned it off. Tiara blinks her eyes a few times and stretches her arms up. She shook her head fast. Her head was a little dizzy this morning.After finished wash her face and getting dressed, she walked down the stairs. Tiara stepped towards the kitchen. Her blue eyes capture William’s figure putting some plates of food on the table.“Are you awake, Ara?” the man asked.“Can I help you, Will?”“Could you please help move the soup to the bowl?”“Yes, of course.”She took a medium-sized bowl and filled it with a vegetable soup made by William. It was confusing her. Why the smell of this man’s cooking was always good? There must be a secret in the recipe.
I rested my body behind a sofa with red velvet fabric with gold carvings on each side. My eyes stared straight out the window. My hands loosened up my tie a bit. I don’t know why they’re going to have a ball party next week with the reason of finding my mate. Though I’ve repeatedly confirmed to both of them, I’m pretty sure I can find my mate by myself. However, the mother who wants to have a grandchild soon makes the king not change his decision.“Damn it.”I glanced to the side. My hand grabbed a glass of deep red liquid on the table. Then bring the glass closer to my face, inhale the smell of blood first fleetingly. It’s good. Just had a sip, bland.“Fuck!”I immediately threw the glass roughly against the wall. The medium-sized glass crushed in an instant into small pieces as it touched the wall. T
THE blinding rays are still dim. My blue eyes welcomed by the view of an amazingly beautiful flower garden. It fascinated me to see any kind of blooming flowers and oversized fountains that became the center of this garden.The sound of feet approaching. I immediately dimmed behind a tree trunk. Two little kids running around the park. The boy in the black hair chuckles at the fact that the child who is smaller than him shouted from his back.“Louis, give back my candy!” shouted the brunette boy.“Take it by yourself.”“Just watch out!” the boy replied with his lisp accent.They kept running around. Seeing those two boys made me smile. His little brother’s foot knocked out, he fell down. That boy hit the ground pretty hard. He’s getting into a crying. The boy with the dark hair ran up to his brother.“Are you okay?”“It hurts.”<
