Here it comes, the new and hopefully improved Night Life!
Living a lie, isn't all what it's cracked up to be, to be frank, it sucks to keep your real self hidden away under piles upon piles of your made up excuses, or you're fake reasons. Take it from me, you don't want to lie, it eats you out day in and day out, it's the first thing you think about when you wake up and when you lay down to go to sleep, what's today's lie going to be? Mine is simple, I use it everyday of my life. I'm Courtney Bennett, a completely normal girl who does everything you expect her to do, abides by the rules, and has a normal sane life.
All except the first are total lies. It's true my name is Courtney Bennett, but I am in no way a normal girl. Neither are my closest friends: Skylar and Madison. We're a tight group, us three. But then you have to add some stragglers here and there, like Brian, Skylar's boyfriend. Or the person who you sit next to but, don't really talk too, the band geek, the nerd, the head cheerleader. You name it, we're probably there. As far as I know, only a few actually go to this school, besides Skylar, Madison, Brian, and I. That's good news, the lesser the better. After all, we are vampires.
Yes we do exist, and yes we do blend in to the crowd. We're not easily recognized, you only truly know if you're own of our kind or another. But never humans. No, humans aren't that very observant. That also makes them easier prey for the ones that chow down on them. We try not too, we get our blood specially delivered, and no it's not the mailman or delivery man, we actually get it mailed to us, our own personal blood bank. It's better than having to raid poor unsuspecting hospitals, or their would be patients if we didn't keep up with the blood flow.
Our appearances are like any other's, we don't have any extremely good lucks, well unless you were born with them, the only true ability that we have is we affect humans easily with just a few looks, or notions, or even words. It's breed into us really, it's in our own blood. Vampires were just made to attract their prey, their prey being humans. Sure it comes in handy at school, making someone do our own bidding, but we try to not take it over the top, over the top meaning if we said, "I vant to suck your blood." To set the record straight, we don't speak like that, we can talk perfectly fine when our fangs drop, as if we didn;t even have prolonged canines coming out of our mouth. It's purely ridiculous to think other wise.
Another myth to be solved, we don't burn in the sunlight, we don't cringe around anything religious, but we can die from a stake, in the heart that is and having our heart ripped out, obviously. And like any other person or creature, if we get decapitated, we don't magically grow our heads back, they stay off our bodies, and we're just that after words, bodies.
We do have natural families, we were born vampires. Another mystery to put in the solved category, vampire's can procreate, we just can't with humans. No one knows for sure why not, but humans couldn't get anyone pregnant, or could they carry a vampire child. That is a mystery even we don't know why. We also tend to age very slowly, as of right now I'm seventeen in human years, but I'm really a shocking eighty five years in vampire years. Surprised? For every five years, we age one year, in human terms. So our body or faces change as the years progress.
We also don't have supposed 'mates', that's really cliche. We date whoever we want really, we don't get that special someone who sends tingles through your entire body when you touch. No one does, not even the werewolves. The werewolves just tend to use the term mate to label their significant others, it's their primal instinct I guess. You didn't think just vampire's existed, did you? No, every creature in the book is real, we're all real. We all have lives that we try to live, we try to be normal, even though we know it won't ever be so. We just weren't born that way.
"I'm telling you Sky, you can't speak to Brian like that, and not expect him to act on it." I said, telling my dear friend Skylar Dean, that she shouldn't have begun teasing her boyfriend, Brian.
