Just One Bite

Zoë is an 16 year old girl...on the surface. She's actually a five century old Vampire queen to be.Her life seems to be doing fine until the current queen of her coven is mysteriously killed and she is shoved into the position, well before she is ready. How will she handle the pressure, AND avoid the Vampire slayers that are coming after her coven?


8. Training

The day flew. Since I had a meeting with a Vampire called Christian after school. I was extremely nervous and wanted the day to go slow. But, of course, the day rushed by. By the time last period came along I was a nervous wreck.

I went to an abandoned shopping mall outside of NYC. That was where I was going to train when the instructors were here in America. I was sweating like crazy by the time I reached the entrance. I had no clue what or how I was going to do. I nearly turned around and ran home, but I knew that wasn’t what a queen would do. I had to train if I was going to be a successful leader. So I composed myself and went in.

When I walked in I saw Christian. He was a gorgeous man, probably early 20’s when he was turned. He had tan skin (unlike the human portrayals of Vampires, we do not have extremely pale skin), thick, shoulder length, black hair, and he had a muscular build. He was wearing jeans, a blood red  ;) t-shirt, and black Chuck Taylor’s. He looked like someone who would teach me fighting techniques. I was right.

*3 hours later* I was long on the ground in serious pain. Christian helped me up and told me, telling me with his thick, Spanish accent, “You need to be on guard much more often if you are going to survive the Brutals.” Brutals are what the Vampires call the crazy Vampires who killed the old queen. “They won’t be as kind as I am. If they catch you off guard they will tear your head off in an instant. Tomorrow you will be working with Alicia on toning your Vampire senses. Then you will work with me again and put what you learned to test. You are dismissed.”

                I walked out in terrible pain. Christian had taught me some great fighting techniques that I did ok at when I was fighting him. But the moment he caught me off guard his fangs were at my neck in 2 seconds. He was right about having to pay more attention. I know I have body guards now, but they won’t be able to help with everything. I had to know how to fight.

I was supposed to practice a little when I got home, but I was too sore. I went and lied down on the couch. When Kelly came home she looked at me and asked what was wrong. She really does care, even if she doesn’t act like it sometimes.

                “Just a cheerleading accident.” I told her. I was a flier, so things happened sometimes. She nodded her head and went to her room. I fell asleep on the couch. The minute I fell asleep I started to have another nightmare. It was the worst one yet.
