29. The Beginning of the End

 

Cameron smirked at me, his fangs glinting dangerously but I ignored him. It was Randolph I was glaring at.

“Why are you bringing Ridge as well?” I demanded, pulling against the vampire that was restraining me. “You swore that you wouldn’t hurt him.”

“I won’t hurt him physically, but he is going to watch as you are sacrificed. Same as him.” Randolph’s eyes hovered on Xavier briefly.

“You monster.” I spat.

Randolph ignored me, as if I wasn’t worthy of his attention.

The portal was bright and hurt my eyes. I looked away, noting that Jet was close by. Ridge sent me a loving look which I cherished as if it would be the last one I would ever receive, which it might well have been.

“It is time.” Randolph announced, holding the Infinity Blade high, its now bejewelled hilt gleaming. “The advance party will go through first. The rest of you will wait here.” turning to Lincoln, Randolph ordered. “You will stay here.”

Gerard didn’t bother to hide his grin at this news.

Grabbing my wrist, Randolph dragged me so that I was standing directly in front of the portal. The swirling light was so bright and I had to narrow my eyes when they started to hurt. Then Randolph was pulling me through the portal and from the corner of my eyes I saw that the Infinity Blade seemed to be greedily absorbing the light emitted by the portal.

I fell over and landed with a thud on the grass of my back garden, beside the stone slab. Randolph stood beside me, waiting for the others to come through the portal, which was in the archway as usual.

Pulling myself up I noticed that it was night time. Stars shone brighter than ever before in the sky. It would have been a magical sight if I hadn't been about to die.

“Danira!”

I whirled around at Dad’s voice and was shocked to see that he was kneeling on the ground, surrounded by a handful of vampires. He looked like he had aged ten years since I had last seen him and he had cuts on his cheeks and arms. My heart went out to him. Randolph grabbed my wrist, his grip like iron. The rest of the advance party swarmed through the portal and Mum was pushed over to Dad. They embraced and kissed thrilled to see each other again.

“I’m so glad that you’re safe!” I called to them as I pulled against Randolph.

Mum and Dad looked terrified as they stared at me and I felt so bad that they were going to see me be sacrificed.

“How long have I been gone?” I asked while Randolph was distracted.

Dad’s eyes were heavy as he answered. “A month, I was so worried.”

“I’m sorry.” I whispered.

A month! My time in the Realm of the Undead had been less than a week for me. I felt awful for putting Mum and Dad through all the constant worry they must have been feeling, not knowing where I was or if they would ever see me, or each other, again. Oh no, I had missed a whole month of college! How was I going to explain that?

Gazing around, I saw that the vampires had formed a semi circle around the stone slab which I realised was where I was going to be sacrificed. In the back garden of the house I had lived in all my life, could there be a better place?

I avoided looking into Mum, Dad and Ridge’s eyes because I knew that I would only start crying and I needed to be strong for what was to come.

Finally Randolph held up the Infinity Blade and his henchmen cheered. I could see Randolph’s mouth moving but I didn’t hear his words. All I could hear was my heartbeat which was loud, too loud. I wasn’t panicking though. I was actually quite calm although I would soon be sacrificed. I kept my eyes on Randolph watching as he continued to speak what was no doubt a well rehearsed speech about how everyone would get to feast on lots of humans after this was all over. I prayed that wouldn’t happen and that my plan would work. Otherwise this would be the end for me and the Realm of the Living.

A dull ache was filling my body. It started in my fingers and toes and was slowly rising up. The ache became pins and needles and my throat started to burn. I was aware then that I was being moved but the fact that I was now laying on the stone slab didn’t compute to me. All I knew was that my heartbeat was slowing, but everything else was in overdrive. My eyes and throat felt like they were ablaze. A fire was spreading through every cell in my body, filling me with an excruciating pain as my body changed. I suppressed a cry of agony, knowing what was happening. I was becoming a vampire.

Then something shiny plunged down and the most delicious and blissful aroma I had ever smelled filled my nose, making my throat burn even more. My heart gave a feeble thump-thump before stopping completely.
