3:30 pm, after school, in detention
There's this awkward silence in the room. It was just me and Jisung. In this class, there was a TV but it only played one channel ; the news. I'm really getting scared now. There was another news about a vampire attack.
"this is like the forth attack this month. " I said shivering. Jisung didn't answer and looked away.
"hey jisung?" I said
"hmm?" he said looking back at me.
"are you okay?"
"... Mhm... " he said looking back away.
"are you sure? You seem different. Are you ma-"
"I have something to tell you. " he said cutting me off. I didn't say anything and I let him talk.
"I um... " he started and looked down.
"jisung, whatever it is, it'll be okay. You can trust me" I told him
"... Answer me this" he said
"are you scared of vampires?" he asked.
"jisung.... Didn't you already ask me this question?" I asked him. I was so confused. Why is he asking me this again?
"i-i did.. But.... I.... Want to know the truth... " he said stuttering.
"well... I guess so. But to me they don't seem as bad. I don't know how to answer you. All these vampire attacks do make me scared but I don't know if I'm scared of them, per say" I tried to explain. He let out a sigh. He's trying to tell me something but it won't come out.
"(sigh).... Soolyeon... I'm a vampire... I-i wanted to tell you the first time we met, in detention, but I was too scared as to how you would react." he said.
I was frozen. I couldn't move. I didn't know... How could he keep such a thing from me?.... I didn't know what to say.
"you're probably scared of me right now, aren't you" he said looking down. I wanted to tell him no but words couldn't seem to come out. He looked so sad. In a way I was scared of him but I also still liked him. He was too nice and friendly to be one of those horrible vampires that attack innocent peo- wait.... If he is a vampire, that means he does attack innocent people. Oh my god.
"h-how many p-people have you killed" I said, my voice cracking a bit.
"1" he said still looking down. I was shocked at his answer. I was expecting to hear much more than that. But that still means he feeds off of people. This is so complicated.
"but..... If you're a vampire... Then that means... "
"The rest of us are vampires as well" he said answering my unfinished question. I don't even know what I'm feeling right now. He... He's a vampire... His friends are vampires.... But I don't know. I'm not as scared. I'm just... Shocked...
"(sigh) soolyeon, look. I understand if you probably never want to talk to me again. It's fine. It happens. But I just felt that I needed to tell you... It would've been wrong if I held it in much longer. " he said. The tone of his voice... He sounded so heartbroken...
I still do want to talk to him and I'm glad he told me sooner than later..
"ji-jisung..... I-im not scared of you. All this time you've been a vampire and I never knew, but you've been so nice to me, you helped me when I was dealing with some rough shit.. I don't really care if you're a vampire or not" I finally had the courage to speak. He didn't say anything and I small smile grew on his face. I got up and sat next to him. He looked at me and I looked away.
"You remember that time I came back to school looking mad?" he asked me.
"y-yeah? Why?" I said looking back at him.
"that time.. I.. Uh.. Got into an argument with changbin hyung" he said.
"... He was... You know.... Drinking.... And I tried to stop him, but he didn't listen to me. Since he didn't stop, I sent the person he was drinking off on away and he yelled at me. Saying things like why can't I leave him alone and let him live the way he wants to and stuff like I always come in and think I have to help people when I don't have to.... All because he was drinking.... " he explained looking away.
"wow" I didn't know what else to say. What changbin said was mean.
"I mean, he apologized... " he said.
I didn't say anything.
Jisung knew I had a lot of questions about him being a vampire so he started telling me about how the others became vampires. Apparently to become one you have to die with vampire blood in your system? What? That's very odd and confusing. He started telling me about how he became a vampire, but avoided one thing ; his parents.
"jisung... Can I ask you a personal question?" I asked
"sure. This whole conversation is personal so yeah" he said with a smile.
"w-what happened to your parents?" I asked and his smile seem to fade away.
"..... When I was younger.... My mom and dad were obviously vampires and they said that they needed to go on 'business'. Since I was too young to stay home alone, I had to go with them. They had tell me to drink something before we left. I didn't know what it was until now. They gave me some of their blood. "
"wait... But if they gave you some of their blood, that would mean that.... They knew something bad was going to happen " I said, trying to patch things together.
"exactly. So we were in the car and suddenly, something stopped it. My dad went to check it out. He didn't come back after a few minutes so my mom went to look for him. She told me not to move or make a sound. Exiting, she left the window wide open. I didn't hear from them for a solid 5 minutes so I got scared. I jumped out of the window and went to look for them. When I found, a random figure shoved a stick through both of their hearts" he said, a tear escaping his eye. I gasped. That's so heartbreaking. He saw both his parents killed right in front of him. I felt so bad for him. I couldn't say anything.
"I didn't know what to do. I was freaking out, then, whoever the figure was, saw me from the corner. He didn't care that I was just a little boy. He shot me with a gun he had. The only thing he didn't know was that I had vampire blood in my system. The last thing I remember was me waking up in my grandmother's house surrounded by Woojin hyung, Chan hyung and Minho hyung. " he completed. He tried to hide his tears but I still saw them. He quickly wiped them off and pretend like he wasn't crying. He's crying, what do I do? Hug him? Talk to him? I'm so bad at these kind of things.
I decided to hug him. I mean why not? It worked with me. I layed my head on his chest. He was crying very silently.
"t-thank you, soolyeon" he said.
"you're welcome Jisung. " I answered.
Detention was almost over. It was 3:55. Detention ends at 4:00.
When I stopped hugging him, I felt my face heat up. He started giggling and wiped another tear from his eye.
"soolyeon, why do you get so shy after these types of moments?" he asked. I didn't know what to say.... That question was hard to answer...
"uhh.... I don't..... Know?" I said.
"You don't seem to sure about that. Come on, tell me" he said lifting up my chin to his eye level.
"I'll tell you some other day... " I said, my cheeks hotter then ever. The bell for detention rang and I got up.
"soolyeon, thank you for helping through this. You didn't react the way most people do. You're really amazing" he said. Why does he always make me feel like this???
"you're welcome Jisung" I said.
I waited for him and he walked me home.
