VanPyre the Vampire, Part 2Edit
It took me a while to get over the original shock of being bitten. But now, as I became fully aware of my surroundings, I noticed Brigit was kissing me. We stayed that way for a while, her warm lips pressed against mine. She had wrapped her arms around my neck, and I had unconsciously wrapped mine around her waist. There we sat, for five, ten, fifteen minutes. Then, finally, I was the one to pull away.
"No need to say thanks," I said.
"Sorry," she replied.
"Don't be," I said. "This was my choice, anyway." So I gave her one quick kiss on the cheek, and smiled. "Shouldn't you be going?"
"Yeah, I guess I should," she said, returning my smile. Then, she got up, brushed herself off, and was at the corner of the street in less than a second. She waved goodbye, and I waved too. I felt the blush spill into my cheeks, and the rain pitter-pattered on the steps, harmonizing with the pitter-patter of my heart. I went inside, and decided to call the only other person I could trust besides Brigit. I had only just met her, but who else was there to tell? My dad?
Nisha picked up on the first ring. "Calling so soon? It's only been an hour."
"Yes, Nisha, I know. Trust me."
"Anything in particular you want to talk about?" she said. "I know you wouldn't call me unless its something serious, considering that we're barely acquaintances."
"Only five minutes," I replied. "And yet you already know me so well."
A staticy laugh answered me back on the other end of the line. "Well? I'm waiting..."
"I've been bitten," I answered. "By a vampire, who I think may be my girlfriend."
"Well, then, welcome to the undead, Pierce," she said dryly. "And glad to see you're so serious about your love life. Anything else?"
"Nope," I responded. "That's about it."
"Alright then Pierce," she said. "I guess I'll see you around sometime." Then the line went dead.
"Yeah, you too," I say, to nobody in particular but myself. And then, it hits me.
I'm going to become a vampire.
