Chapter Thirty-One

"Death did not treat you well." Duncan says while staring at the person in front of him. Her hair was cut above her shoulders. She had a black eye and her lip was cut open along with a long scratch over her eye. She was scrawny, she looked like a stray puppy.

"So I see you missed me?" Marah grinned and showed that her teeth were on the verge of rotting away.

"Do you need something? I'm
currently trying to get my friend out of a hole if you don't mind." Duncan crossed his arms over his chest and glared at the once dead girl.

"That's not just any old hole Duncan...it's his grave." Marah kicked a pile of dirt into the hole and Sammy coughed as it covered his blonde hair and face. "Oh did I get it in your eye patch? I hope it doesn't get infected."

"Screw off Marah, we don't have time for this." Duncan rolls his eyes and leans back down to help Sammy out of the hole. Sammy ran his hands through his hair to try and get dirt out of the tangled mess before grabbing Duncan's hand and climbing his way out of the hole. As soon as he was back on solid ground Sammy bared his fangs and hissed at Marah. Kai nearly tripped over his own feet but he grabbed Duncan's shoulder for support.

"Why wasn't I informed that he was a vampire?"

"It never came up." Duncan shrugged and Kai gave him an annoyed but shocked look. Duncan suddenly covered his mouth and etched over to have one of his infamous coughing fits. Daisy ran to his side and rubbed his back.

"Look, your friend is dying whether you like it or not. I suggest all of you come with me so he doesn't die a far worse death." Marah says without being slightly fazed by Sammy's threateningly sharp teeth.

"What's wrong with him? Can you help him?" Sammy asks and Marah let out a laugh.

"You haven't figured it out?" Marah shakes her head with a grin on her face. Duncan wipes his mouth on his sleeve and look up.

"It's fate Sam, it doesn't matter what's wrong with me I'm going to die soon because I was supposed to die last year and I didn't. Remember when Marah killed Wren during my second year at BeechWood but Jett saved her? She still died by Marah's hand, it's fate." Duncan says and spits on the ground.

"Fate can be beaten. Duncan I promise I'll do whatever it takes to keep you alive. Whatever it takes." Sammy says and Duncan shakes his head.

"No, you won't, you're going to let me die. Trust me." Duncan didn't take his eyes away from Sammy's red ones. Sammy turned back to Marah and growled.

"Duncan, take the others and go kill Amber. I'll handle Marah." Sammy says as Marah bares her own fangs.

"No way! You'll die!" Daisy screams and Sammy shakes his head.

"I'll be fine." Sammy pounces at Marah but she twists away and he falls into the dirt. Duncan grabs Daisy's hand and pulls her away yells at Kai to follow. They run away from the fight because that's what Sammy wanted.
