Alaska Junior High School was only minutes away but it took Jack longer today, as he dragged a container of strawberry crush and a bag of sweets in the snow. He fumbled and fell over a rock bruising his knee. The bag began to leak like his body, as he rushed inside the gate.
Jason couldn’t control the anxiety. He wasn’t sure of this but he had no alternative. As he sat 50ft underground in the dark room, he wished he could buy time, only if that were on sale!
He quickly put his cloak on, painted his face and reached the center of the room. The rest of his school was around the stage in a circle, their glasses full of red liquid. He knew it was time for the ritual as the boy sitting across him screeched: Are you ready? Let’s play Who Wants To Be a Vampire!
It was a simple process: The Bite, The Drink, The Hunt
He grew nervous and his teeth came closer to his body. The last he saw was the white face.
Waking up from the daze, he tried to control his anger and angst. He picked up the glass of red liquid, the smell was appetizing to his newfound senses.
The crowd cheered. Jack wanted to give them something in return and he remembered he had left his sweet bag outside.
He wobbled and reached the rock and found a beautiful man waiting. “I smelt you in the snow,” he said.
