9. Strange Feelings

Albert's POV

 

Melody fell asleep a few minutes after we left Luke's. She was so quiet after she found out the truth about him... She just stared out the window, and kept to herself. I don't remember her ever being this quiet around me. She usually had questions or smart-ass statements to pound me with. But after I told her about Luke being a slayer, she seemed to be saddened...or worried. I kept glancing toward her, wanting to ask her what was wrong, but never getting the words out. Soon, I lost my chance, and she fell into a peaceful sleep.

I pulled the car into another hotel parking lot and sighed. The silence was starting to kill me... 

Reaching over, I shook Melody's arm, "Hey, wake up. We're at the hotel..." I murmured. She shrugged my hand off her shoulder and leaned off of the door. I straightened in my seat as she stretched in her place. "Where are we...?" She asked quietly.

"At the hotel..." I repeated, "Come on, let's get settled." 

She shook her head, her eyes a brightened green as she looked at me, "I need food..." She breathed, "I'm hurting."

I blinked, "Oh. Yeah. I forgot all about that." I opened the car door and went to the passenger's side. After opening the door, I picked my backpack up and took her hand, helping her out of the car. She buckled over, letting out a small cry. Strangers nearby were glancing our way. They were hesitating to help, but were very tempted. 

I couldn't have that...

I forced Melody upright, supporting her as we entered the peaceful lobby. I helped her to a love seat, and knelt in front of her. 

"Look at me." I whispered, and her eyes slowly came up to meet mine, "You have to calm yourself... Try to control it."

She responded with tears in her eyes, "But it burns..." She whimpered.

"I know. I know it does. And I'm going to get you...food...soon." I chose not to say the word 'blood' while she was in a state such as this. 

She wrapped her arms around herself, "It hurts so bad." She murmured, "Make it stop."

I nodded, "Let me get us a room." She nodded, and I stood. I walked to the front desk, and got the key to the room. 

Melody was already standing and ready to go. With a hand on her back, I led her toward the elevator and quickly pressed the button to the floor that our room was on before the family that was hurrying toward us could catch the doors. Melody would cringe and groan every now and then, which only made me rub her back a little in comfort. When we reached the room, I let her in and then closed the door behind us. She sat on the twin sized bed by the window, and I put my backpack on the one nearer to the door. She was whimpering and growling when I sat beside her. 

"Melody..." I murmured.

She looked at me with a hungered look in her eyes, her bottom lip quivering. Rolling up my sleeve, I looked at her and scanned her face. 

"You will feed from me until you figure out how to control yourself." I told her firmly. She looked confused, and unhappy at the thought, but I forced my arm up to her lips. 

"Albert..." She breathed. I touched my skin to her lips before she could continue. Her breath hitched at the smell.

I had drank more than enough that morning, so I knew that it would be enough. Well...enough to keep her sane. 

She opened her mouth partially, her fangs having slit her lip. I kept my arm to her mouth until she bit into my flesh.

The strange sensation sent a shiver down my spine. I'd never been bitten by another vampire before.

My father was a vampire, and so I became one as I hit puberty. I was just like any other boy before my teenage years. At the age of 21, I stopped aging, and was able to control myself more. But this was coming from a purebred. I knew nothing about being bitten and turned into this world. 

After almost thirty minutes of her drinking, I spoke, "Melody, stop now..." She kept on, and I tried to pull away from her. She growled, and grabbed my arm to pull me closer. I reached up and pulled her hair, forcing her mouth open. With a swift movement, I took my arm away and let her go. Her eyes were still bright when I let her go, full of uncontrollable hunger. I stood slowly, tugging my sleeve down to cover my healing bite. 

"Melody, calm yourself..." I murmured as she began to stand. 

She moved faster than I thought she could and tackled me to the ground. I struggled under her for a while, feeling her legs straddle my stomach as she tried to bite my neck. I had her wrists in my hands, forcing her backwards slowly as she snapped at my face and throat. Suddenly, her eyes darkened, and her snarl disappeared. She stopped pushing against my hands, and stared down at me with a horrified expression on her face. 

She panted as tears rolled down her cheeks. She crawled off of me once I released her wrists, and allowed me to sit up. 

I watched as she cried, "Melody, it was an accident... You didn't mean to..." 

She shook her head, hiding her face with her knees, "No... I'm a monster!" 

"You can control it. You just need time..." I told her. I stood a moment later and reached for her hand, "Let's get ready for bed..." 

She took my hand, and I pulled her up. With a small sniffle, she walked toward her bed. 

"Tomorrow morning, I'll get you clothes, okay?" I asked. She slowly nodded, "Yeah, that's fine..." 

I raised a brow as she brought her shirt over her head and chucked it in the floor. 

"What are you doing, showing off?" I asked in amusement. 

She smirked, "No. I just thought that since you've seen it all before..." 

I chuckled as she trailed off, shaking my head, "Well, I'm a gentlemen, so I'm changing in the bathroom." 

"Nahh! You just modest!" Accused as I closed the bathroom door. 

When I exited, dressed in only sweatpants, because I couldn't find my shirt anywhere, I found Melody sleeping with the covers of her bed up to her stomach, the sleeves of my sleeping shirt balled into her fists. 

I smirked, laying in my bed and falling to sleep. 

***Midnight***

In the middle of the night, I awoke with tight arms around my waist. At first, I thought it was my imagination, but when I opened my eyes, I looked down to see wild brown curls staring back at me. Sitting up only a little, I looked and saw that she wasn't covered up. I moved her, and she made a light noise and stirred a little. Once she was still again, I moved her to my side and then brought the covers over her. Her bare legs slid between my legs, and her face snuggled closer to my neck.

I actually liked this... 

With a smile, I wrapped an arm around her, brought her close, and fell to sleep.
