there were rows and rows of humans hooked up to machines, their blood being sucked out by little tubes. They ran red, an endless supply of blood.
“Help me…” The girl nearest me whispered, her cheek bones sticking out gruesomely and she sat on the floor, unable to stand. I opened my mouth to scream, but Amy clamped a hand over my mouth.
“Someone’s coming!” She whispered, and she was right. I could hear the distant footsteps coming down the stairs, and we scrambled to hide.
Amy dragged me behind one of the wooden boxes, and held a finger to her mouth in a ‘ssh’ motion.
The distant clip clap got louder, and finally, someone stepped into view.
“What’s she doing down here?” I hissed, realizing too late that might have been a bad idea. Larissa’s eyes narrowed slightly, and in that second she looked like a cat. A motherfucking evil cat. She paced for a minute, checking each human body and – Urghh – disposing of the eh…dead ones.
I heard a beeping, and I cast a glance at Amy. A burst of light shot through the dimly lit room as the wall at the end started ascending, revealing a truck with confused humans piled into the back.
I felt myself tearing up inside. Who were these horrible people? Why would they do this, surely there has to be a better way?
I knew one thing for sure. Phoenix was behind it.
We watched as Larissa dragged the humans into the room and hooked them up to the machines with tubes. She waved a goodbye to the guys from the van, and left.
I breathed a sigh of relief along with Amy, and we went to stand.
Boy, were we wrong.
I felt vines slithering around my ankles and winding around my chest fast.
“What the fuck? Help!” I screamed, just as the vine wrapped around my mouth muffling my voice. I looked sideways, and Amy was also smothered in the green ropes.
Larissa stepped into view, a sneer painted on her wrinkled face.
“You thought you could hide from me? Stupid children, why cant you just mind your own business.
I stuck up my middle finger, a last act of defiance, before the vines took over my hands.
“Now, what to do with you…” She tapped her delicate chin slowly, and then her eyes brightened.
"You know, we don’t just need human blood…”
I was confused for a minute, but then I understood. I tried screaming again; no-way was I being vamp food, no-way!
I didn’t really have a choice this time. Larissa relaxed the vines but kept my mouth feet and hands bound. I tried to struggle, but they were too strong. Me and Amy shared a scared glance.
“Have fun girls…” Larissa taunted, winking at us one last time before she hooked us up to the machines. I looked down, and already my blood was being suck out through the little tube. My blood, feeding vamps.
Larissa left, and I slumped back, my head dizzy. Blood was leaving me fast, and I could feel myself getting weaker with every pint lost.
I didn’t have to be able to speak to understand the situation we were in…well, it was hopeless.
This was it. The end. Goodbye Damen…
The loud crash shocked me awake, and it was surprising how truly dead I felt.
That’s when I saw him. The love in those red eyes could only mean one thing.
“Evangeline? Oh jeez are you alright? Fuck…”
He took out a demon blade from within his belt, and cut mine and Amy’s vines. When the vine over my moth fell away, I gasped but nothing more. I was too weak to do anything else. Damen roughly touched his lips to my forehead.
“Crap you’ve lost so much blood…I’m going to have to give you both some of mine.”
I vaguely remembered protesting, but it was too late and damn had already cut his wrist open and was feeding the blood into my throat. I gulped it hungrily, and man did it taste good. It tasted like Damen, popcorn and spice. He stemed the flow and fed some to Amy.
My vision cleared, and I felt as good as new. I did the first thing I could think of.
I ran into Damen’s arms and crushed my mouth onto his, the warm feeling spreading throughout my whole system. He kissed me back, winding his hands into my gritty hair.
“Ehem…Escape plan?” said Amy, looking uncomfortable. I hastily jumped back and grinned, a high running through me despite the situation.
I noticed blood on Damen’s hand.
“Hey, what’s that?” I asked, pointing at it. Damen looked sheepish.
“Had to ah…knock Larissa out.” I laughed, and patted Damen on the shoulder.
“I have taught you well.” He smiled fondly at me and rested a hand on my head.
“Let’s get out of here then.” He replied, and began taking us out. I shook my head and stayed put.
“What about all these humans?” I said, gesturing to the dying bodies. They were just that – dying.
“Evangeline…I don’t know if there’s anything we can do right now. We can unhook them from the machines for now, but you must realize that people will wonder why there’s no blood. I know this isn’t right, and we need to find another way but I’m not sure what to do…”
The girl with the big doe eyes stared at me hopefully, her mouth trembling as she formed words ‘help me’.
“Damen we have to do something…”
The question was, what do we do?
What will they do? seriously, cause I have no ideas...Need help to solve this problem in a way that will work! give suggestions below!
