The Truth

I hope this short story gets your heart beating fast, and if I get feedback I might add more! Thanks!


10. Reunion

    The street was empty, the crescent moon high in the sky. I sit on a bench, waiting for the signal. Neon fluorescent signs blink in the night, advertising bars, clubs, and convenience stores. I tap my foot to an unheard beat, unplugging my nerves.

    I could do this. I have before. I will do this.

    A sudden thought hits me, square in the face. This target and I aren't very different, in one aspect. He and I both save people from his kind. Wait, I remind myself, I don't know what he has done in his time serving as a supernatural leech. Aside from saving people, that is.

    A black SUV speeds past, splashing me with murky water. "Hey!" I yell after it, looking at my now drenched clothes. 

    A laugh rings through the night, so suddenly it sends a chill down my spine. "Long time no see." Speaks the voice, nowhere yet everywhere all at once.

    I turn around, looking for the slightest indication on where this voices source is. Speech and movement are two easy ways to get myself killed, so I remain perpetually still like I have all this time as a slayer. 

    "You know, it's funny. I thought you'd owe a debt to me, but I never thought you'd kill me for saving you. That's not very nice." The voice sings, almost mockingly. 

     This isn't going well. Angry vampire plus vampire slayer equals an inevitable fight, ending with a casket on either one or both sides.  

    "I've watched your work, from a distance. I admit, you're not too bad. But now I know all your tricks, your moves," he pauses, "Your weaknesses." 

     He steps across the street towards me. "I think we both know how this is going to end." I manage. 

    His head bobs up and down.

    Simultaneously we both say, "With a steak and a corpse."
