Self Destruct Intro
I sit in my apartment waiting for Jeremy to come home. The traffic lights are so bright. Honking of the car horns echo against the buildings. I hate the city. Jeremy is my best friend. He wants to get out of the city. He just has to work to save up some money so he and I can disappear. Youd think, living with a vampire would be scary. But, I can honestly tell you, it makes you feel safe. Although, I am mortal, I feel immortal when I know hes around. Because, nothing can hurt me.
I heard a key in the lock, and stood up from the couch. Jeremy walked in with a pizza in one hand, his keys in the other and the mail in his mouth. Erica
He mumbled as he held the papers in his mouth. I took the pizza setting it on the table. I thought, you didnt like the smell of pizza. He smiled. I like the smell of pizza
I just dont like the way you get your pizza. He opened the box disgusted. Pesto pizza. My favorite. I wasnt expecting pizza. Surprise! He said flipping through the mail.
Jeremy has never told me exactly how old he is. He just says nineteen, and drops the subject. I was so curious about him. I wanted to know what his family was like. What his town was like. What he was like. I had all these questions. But, I dare not mention anything. I hate to see Jeremy travel down memory lane. I started to eat a piece of pizza. He stood by the window where I just was looking down. I could tell he was thirsty. The look in his eyes is how you can tell.
He was looking down at the traffic. We need to get out of the city. He said. I nodded, walking towards him. I know. Ive been looking at places
He cut me off. Remember, it needs to be in the woods somewhere. Hopefully, a private house. He looked at me. I mean
if you dont feel safe that way.. Then I guess it could be in a small town. I smiled. I found a house thats in the woods and has its private lake. He looked at me interested. Hmmm.. Doesnt sound too bad. He grinned looking at the pictures.
I could tell he was thinking it was the perfect location to lure his victims. No one would notice that they went missing. I continued to munch on my pizza. I wondered if he was ever married. I dont know why that was popping into my head. But, Id be shocked if he wasnt. Considering he is the most beautiful guy Ive ever seen. Or it could be the fact that hes a mystery to me. Which is funny
because he calls me his mystery. I dont know why. I always say what I feel and think.
He looked at me. This is the place. He printed off the papers. Wanna check it out tomorrow? I nodded sipping some cola. Sounds fun. I need to get out of the city. He nodded and looked at the papers. How did you know? I tilted my head. Know what? Know what the perfect house is? I shrugged. I guess, I tried to think about what I would want if I was a vampire. He kissed my cheek, and went into his room.
Self Destruct Pt. 1
We were in the car driving to the countryside. I was looking out the window. Watching the scenery change as we left the city. Jeremy drove fast. We got there in an hour. Where as someone normal, would take five and half hours. It didnt shock me that we got here so fast. We were now driving down a long driveway until we met this big iron gate. I could tell that he was in love with this place. This is amazing. He said as we drove through the gate to the house.
It was a big mansion, with a private lake out front. The real estate agent looked at us with one of those smiles any type of seller has. You know, the cheesy-fake-yet-comforting smile? Jeremy went up and shook her hand. She then, turned to me and mouthed Oh my god! I could tell that she was looking at him. Sometimes, I cant even help myself. I wandered around the house while Jeremy negotiated. I found the perfect room for me. It was at the front of the house. It had its own fireplace
every room did
and a balcony where I could stand and look perfectly at the lake.
Jeremy came in to find me. You like? I nodded. Yes. I call this room! I said smiling. He nodded. Of course. You know I prefer the rooms at the back of the house. He stood next to me now. I must look strange next to his tall figure. The real estate agent, ( who I found out was Mackenzie ), came in. So, its a done deal? Jeremy nodded. Yes. Well move in, in about a week. He said looking at me. I didnt look back at him. I know, if I did, I would want to hug him and say Thankyou for kidnapping me from my family.
Which is seriously what he did. I wasnt meant to become his best friend. I was actually supposed to be a victim. It was a year ago. I was at a lake in the woods on a camping trip with my family. My sister and I were relaxing together there at first. But, then her boyfriend arrived so she went for a canoe ride on the lake, where he proposed to her. I decided to go into a dark cave near the lake. I felt a cold hand go around my mouth, I felt sharp teeth against my flesh.
I heard my family call me. But, the hand didnt let go. Dont answer them. I heard a voice with an accent speak in my ear. For some reason, I showed no fear
probably because, I wasnt afraid. I felt safe already in the arms of this lunatic vampire. He took me up into the mountains to a small cabin nearby. Two other victims were there. He put me on the couch, and I watched with another girl, him feed on a small child. He looked evil, the other girl screamed even. But, I sat there watching him. Interested in the mystery of what he was. He killed the scared girl then looked at me quizzically. I never made a sound.
You arent frightened. He said, looking somewhat disappointed. I shook my head. No. He raised an eyebrow. You dont get frightened by death? I shook my head again. Just sitting there casually, looking at him. He took me back to the camp. He followed our car home. He heard the argument that I had with my parents. They were trying to change who I was. Wanted me to be just like Lori! Well, Im not Lori and never will be. I went up to my room and saw him there.
What do you want? I asked him as I unpacked. He took my hand without a word and we ended up in the city. And now, Im moving into a hidden mansion with him. This guy who was going to kill me. He still could at any point in time. Mackenzies flirting with him broke my thoughts.
He shook her hand once more and we drove back to the city again. Why a week? I asked him. He turned to me. So I can have more money for my mortal companion. He said laughing. I flipped him off, and drifted to sleep. I woke up in my bed. He must have carried me up here, because I didnt wake until morning. And, Im not that talented of a sleepwalker.
He poked his head in my room. Hey. Your awake. Your very observant. I said yawning and stretching. I sat up to look at the clock. Four thirty in the evening. Your starting to get my sleeping habits. He chuckled. Which wasnt a lie. Well.. Since you wont let me out of this apartment, I gotta do something during the day. He chuckled. You understand why I dont let you out though
right? I nodded. Because, your not the only vampire out there. He nodded. Exactly.
He pushed my door fully open and put boxes in my room. I have all my things at our house. I knew he had been busy with something. Throw whatever you want in here and Ill take it up quickly. I laughed. And you said that we would need a week to move into the house. He shrugged. I didnt want to make it sound weird. But
you are weird. He nudged me playfully. I still cant believe he was almost my murderer.
