The woods were dark and mysterious. The trees were the witness of millions of untold stories and incidents. God knows how many creatures lurked in the depth of the jungle.

The forest is a proof that beautiful things hold so many secrets. I was wandering in the forest beholding it's beauty in my eyes.

The woods scared me, but at the same time it fascinated me. I was afraid to discover the depth of the forest but at the same time I was hella curious to do so.

We were searching for food. We left our hiding because we didn't wanted to stay in a place for too long. I was really hungry and my stomach was growling. George was going to search for food and I offered to come with him but he refused saying "it'll be better for you to stay here" . I  nodded and he left.

I went further into the forest and saw a big lake. It was beautiful and eerie at the same time. I couldn't tell if it was day or night because the canopy made it impossible for me to spot any sign of sunlight or moon.

I sat on the banks of the lake and stared at space.

Then suddenly I heard George's screams, I ran towards his voice and saw him.

He turned to me and said "Come here, I wanna show you something"

I walked towards him and saw the carcass of the dog I killed earlier.

I gulped and George noticed, he asked me
"Do you know anything about this?"

I said no. He eyed at me suspiciously but looked away eventually. He then said

"If you don't know anything about it, I think we're in trouble"

I asked him "Why, what do you mean?"

He analyzed the carcass and said
"there are fang marks on it's liver and kidneys and I don't think that there is any animal here who have fangs."

I was confused and asked him "So..?"

"so, it means there is a third vampire in the forest"  he replied.

I thought about Confessing that I did it. But I couldn't do it, I couldn't admit the fact that I did such a disgusting thing so in response I just nodded.

He stood up and gave me the same bottle he had given me earlier. It had blood and again I emptied the contents of the bottle in a gulp.

I was curious to know what kind of blood it was because when I drank the animal's blood it tasted different and didn't affected me much. But when I drink the blood that george give me I always feel so fulfilled and energetic.

I asked George "From where do you bring this blood? "

In response he said "You don't have to worry about that"

And with that being said he went further inspecting the carcass but I knew that he was hiding something from me and I was determined to find out what it was.
