A/N: this is long overdue  but I didn't have the heart to keep it deleted or give it to another writer to finish it for me (MINE so fuck off) or just mark it as incomplete so I got it back. Enjoy? I blame Tyler Oakley for distracting me while trying to finish this. Thank you for your patience and the 32k reads, it means a lot.

.:Chapter Eight: I Need A Hero:.

"You're kidding me right?"

He sighs clearly irritated with me, seeing as that was the tenth time I asked the same question. "No, I am not kidding. Why would I be?"

I stare at him open-mouthed, "Because this is awkward and extremely weird for me, that's why!"

Liam just rolls his eyes at me, almost smiling at my expense. "Calm down, Jesus, I was kidding."

Yeah, because asking me to let him drink my blood is a joking matter. "Stop acting like you're a damn vampire Liam." Maybe if I pretend I never heard that conversation, I will forget it.

"But I am one, that's what I'm trying to tell you!" I blink. One second he's happy next he's like Hulk.

I take a step back from the now glaring Liam, "The only thing you are is  bipolar, Liam."

"Ugh!" Liam throws his hands in the air in a frustrated gesture, and I start to get nervous. "Why won't you fucking believe me?!"

Despite the fact that he could hurt me if he wanted to, I still stand my ground, "Because you're nuts, that's why! You fucking expect me to believe you're an immortal dead person?"

"Yes!"

He's nuts. "I'm leaving." I don't wait to see his reaction or even stay to see what he does next, I am not staying in the same room as a nut job. Even if there is a chance he is telling the truth. I just refuse to believe him.

My hand is on the doorknob, mind racing with anxiety - my back is to him, he could do anything and I wouldn't be able to defend myself. I twist the knob, door opening barely an inch when I hear him.

"You're not going to leave me here alone, are you Nialler?"

His ice cold breath hits my ear, shivers running through my body from fear and coldness.

"Are you?" Liam's arm snakes its way around my waits, pulling me back against his chest, making it clear that I have no say in this. "You'll stay here and keep me company like the good boy you are, won't you?" His grip on my tightens and all I can do is try to keep breathing, because right now, he's making it pretty damn hard to breathe. Let alone, think.

"Answer me." His voice drops to a deep growl, and I can't help the whimper that escapes me.

It's seconds before I can speak, yet I still stutter. "Y-y-yes."

Liam's arm loosens around me, "Good boy." I feel him step back giving me a chance to breathe properly. "Now, turn around and stay quiet will you?"

I have a bad feeling about this, but I do so anyways, memories from the other night flashing in my mind.

"Good boy, now if you don't want to be punished, you do as I say. Got it?"

My heart pounds loudly in my ears.

"Good. Now turn around. This will be quick and . . . painless. If I can't have you, then neither will that boy."

So I turned around.

                                                        *                    *                   *

"Come on Niall, get up."

"But I don't wanna Zayn." I whined.

He looked down at me and smile, "I'll give you candy if you promise not to tell your mum."

Is the candy worth it?

I looked at him, smiling at him happily and wide awake. "Okay Zaynie."

I want him to always smile like that.

His face was just a blur.

But he was precious to me. That much I know. He was always there for me. Until that one day.

"Zayn." I start, getting to my feet and walking over to him "What's going on?"

He still doesn't look at me "I'm leaving."

"You're leaving me. Again?!" I knew he couldn't keep a promise.

He never could.

But he promised anyways.

"This time, I'll keep my promise. I'll come back to you."

But he never did.

                                                       *                       *                         *

 "He's never coming back Niall, you know that right?"

I don't respond.

"He left because he didn't want to deal with you anymore."

That's the tree where I lost my way the day I entered the woods as a child.

"But just because he doesn't want  you . . ."

He left me there too.

"Doesn't mean that I don't."

That should be a wake up call for me to start freaking out but I just can't.

This place brings back so much memories.

It's like I'm looking down at myself, at the scene playing out. And I can't do anything about it.

Liam looks at me from the few feet he's away, the sun setting is casting shadows on his face. He looks more demon like than human. More. . . vampire like.

He starts to walk across the short distance to me, but all I can do is just sit there staring at the tree. I could possibly die in the next few minutes and I wouldn't be able to do anything about it.

He crouches down to my level, his cold breath blowing on my flaming cheek.

"Such a shame that our friendship had to end this way, don't you agree Ni?"

His cool fingers brush my skin, goosebumps rising across my arms. "On the bright side, I get my meal."

That's when the fear and horror kick in.

My eyes stay glued to the tree as I feel Liam's lips touch my neck, heart beating so loud I'm sure he can hear it. I flinch at his cold touch but remain frozen.

This isn't the Liam I met.

This isn't the Liam I became friends with.

This isn't the Liam I forgave.

And this sure as hell isn't the Liam that saved me that night many years ago.

Someone, anyone. Please. Save me.

"Step away from him."
