My leg feels almost normal now. I still won't take the staples out for a couple weeks but at least it is scabbed and the wound doesn't bleed when I walk.
Heading outside, I decided it's time to start boarding up the house and fixing the damage those vampires did the other night. Grabbing my tools, I head to the front of the house and start boarding the windows and repairing the siding. It's the beginning of summer so the weather is warm and I feel sweat dripping down my face and back. Wiping my sweat away, I go to grab my water sitting on my truck and take a sip. Placing it back down I hear movement in the woods. Looking in the direction, I see nothing. Slowly reaching for my hammer and walking to the wrestling of bushes.
I'm not too afraid because vampires can only come out at night and I have yet seen a wolf in this neck of the woods. Maybe it is just an animal that is injured or possibly a person? Walking closer, laughter fills the
"Why don't you look surprised?" I scrunch my brows looking at his facial features as I stand. Shaking his head, he stands also looking back into my eyes. "Were you scared of him? Did the black wolf harm you?" Stalking towards me like pray, his eyes look down and then slowly back up taking in my features. Watching his every move, I sway my head as he keeps walking toward me until my back meets a wall.Luke stands in front of me, caging me in with nowhere to go. Running his hands along my shoulders and down my arms as he leans toward my ear, breathing me in. "If he didn't frighten you or try to harm you, then why be afraid?" Whispering as his lips came in contact with my neck making me let out a small moan. "I'm afraid of what they can do. The power they hold can kill a whole town." The words slowly came out of my lips as Luke unbuttons my overalls and lets them slide to the floor.Lowering himself to his knee's, roughly grabbing hold of my thighs as he place
"Ma! Put the belt down and back away slowly." Yelling towards my mom as I point my finger, trying to make light of the situation. My mom really did look like she was about to lose a fuse. "Susan, you make those boys eat their greens, you hear me?" Stomping her foot as she stormed back in the house. "Yea yea yea. Now look boys, when we get in that house you will head for the kitchen and scarf down all those greens. You hear me?" "Yes auntie." They both said as they headed for the door with their heads hanging. Feeling Luke's hand on my shoulder I turn my head and look up to him."What?" Giving him a questionable stair as his smile only grew more. "Shame on you for siding with your mom." Shaking his head, he started walking towards the door without me. "Now you listen, if you get greens on your plate you better eat them." Luke stopped and turned towards me, slowly walking with an intimidating glare. "Or what? You'll get me with a belt?" Raising his eyebrow and then smacki
Waking up in the night, I started feeling around in the bed and it was empty. Where did Luke go? Getting out of bed filled with worry, I rush to grab my robe and head for the kitchen. Walking in I notice him sitting at the island staring out the window in the kitchen. Feeling relieved, I walking over and I place my arms around his neck, lay my head on his shoulders. "What's wrong?" Whispering as I place a gentle kiss along his cheek. Turning his face looking me in the eyes, a small smile went across his face. This is one look Luke has never had and it's the look of worry."Nothing, I smelled other wolfs in the area so I came out to check the yard. They have passed but now I can't sleep." Turning his head and gazes back out the window. When will this hell be over? I have fully accepted Luke being a wolf. Maybe if we talk with the others and see if they want to be like Luke. Surely, they don't want to kill people forever and when there is nothing left? What will the
Backing away from his embrace, "No! I will not! I am fully capable of taking care of myself and this is where I want to be. I need to be here and help the town as much as I can! If it is by growing produce for the families in need then so be it!" Feeling my heart racing and my face turning red with anger, I just need him to understand."There is no one else Susan." My father whispered. Shaking my head as I start pacing back and forth trying to process the words that just left his mouth. "That's not possible! We just saw the ten or so families that stayed behind. We all talked at town hall, there...""Susan! Your mother made calls this morning checking if anyone needed anything and there was no answer. I drove by all the houses and everyone is gone. There all fucking gone!"What are we going to do? What happened with our town? As I began thinking of scenarios of where everyone could have gone, I heard the bushes move. Turning my head
...It's been a month since Luke started living with me. My dad felt it best to keep the boys at their house to give me privacy but I know that's not why. My home is not as safe as his but he won't say it out loud. I was quite upset about it at first but since there has been no activity with any creatures, I don't mind. They still come over a few times a week and help me around the house and thankfully the boys started enjoying their greens.Me and Luke’s day always start the same. Working on securing the outside of the house and we managed to put up a six-foot fence around the front of the house and backyard. The fence won't keep the beasts out but it has minimized wildlife from eating the produce. Doing the same thing every day has been quite tiring and what I would give to just go drive around town but Luke said I shouldn't. I've never been one to be a damsel in distress. I do what I want so having not only one, but two men telling me what to
Pulling up to my house all I see is angry faces. Taking a deep breath, I park the truck and get out with my hands up. “Don't be upset." Walking towards them fully aware of the anger written on their faces. "What the fuck were you thinking?!" Surprisingly my dad was not the first one to talk, it was Luke. Putting a small smile on my face, I look over to my mom and notice she was in tears. "Mom I am fine; I was fine the whole time until" "Until what Susan." My father interrupted. Shit, maybe I should have waited on telling them about Alex. At least until after they saw all the goods I brought home."After I gathered a truck load of supplies" Being dramatic as I point to the loaded truck. Waiting for their reply and there was not an impressed look on any of their faces. "Alex was there." Might as well rip the band aide while its half off. Watching my mother gasp and cover her mouth with her hands and my dad ran his hands through his hair. Luke just stood there starin
...Luke ran. The moment I was most vulnerable and told him that I loved him, he ran. What man does that? The world may be ending and I found out that my husband turned into the monsters we are trying to survive from. Luke has been gone for two weeks and I've been worried sick. Not knowing where he went or even if he is ok has made me a mess.My days have seemed to blend together and I have no idea what to do with myself without him. My normal day with Luke would be us having amazing sex in the morning, then we would make breakfast together. The way he looks at me as I would wash the dishes would make my knee's week. The mornings where my favorite since time seemed to stand still and we had nowhere to rush too. Now, all I want is stay in my bed.Waking up on this morning, I don't want
Heading toward town, I told my dad not to go west, we should go south since there is a good number of houses and a couple stores. My goal today is finding Luke and if he doesn't want to be found then maybe people.Making it to the main road and my dad sees for the first time how everything is over grown and the number of vehicles abandoned on the road. Looking out the windows we stay silent as we continue to head on our way. Driving slowly, we move around all the obstacle's and items in our way. Taking the first street to our right, we move slow and notice vultures flying around all the front yards and when we get a better look, there eating remains; human remains.Covering my mouth with my hands, I just keep observing the horrific sight in front of me. Bodies were scattered throughout the yards. They have been long gone and the clothes covering parts of bones made me realize this might not have been a good idea. "Dad, this is giving me a bad feeling." Whispering as we
