But all too soon the urges come back, take over you and your original self is once again possessed, screaming for your body to stop. But you never stop. Vampires are evil demons, put on this world for no apparent reason but to cause havoc and unimaginable anguish wherever they go. They express no remorse, feel no love and relish in the pain of others. I should know, because I am one of them.

Issy lives with her family in a remote town in the English countryside. It was just like any other small town: boring and uneventful. Every day was the same: the same people, same routines, same surroundings. That is, of course, until the Vampires invaded, and everything turned upside down.

Hey guys! First of all, thank you so much for reading, liking, favouriting and commenting on my story, it means so much! I just wanted to tell you that I'm starting back at school in a couple days, and then in 2 weeks we're getting a puppy (AAAAH! I cannot tell you how excited I am :D) so I'm not gonna have as much free time as I would like to update. So just to warn you it may start getting a little longer between updates, but trust me I will try to do it as often as I can, and I have some really great ideas coming up so please just bare with ;)

Thank you so much! xxxx



"So the Halloween Dance is tomorrow night. Do you know what you're going as yet?" I was snapped out of my reverie by Amy, who was clearly responding to my request to change the subject. That's right: today is 30th October, and Halloween is tomorrow. 

"Uh, no. I'd actually completely forgotten about that." I laughed, trying to act casual. After everything that's happened, a high school dance is just about the last thing on my mind.

"Really? You were so excited about it last week - You love dances...?"

"Yeah, well things change." I said bluntly. They both gave me odd looks, and I mentally slapped myself. I can't do anything to raise suspicion, even if that means lying and faking excitement for a dance that I really don't want to go to. 

"So do you guys know what you're going as?" I said, trying to take the attention off of me.

"I was thinking of going as a Vampire..." Johnny said, that cheeky glint in his eyes. I tensed up, but tried to act nonchalant. 

"A Vampire?" I asked casually.

"Yeah, you know how I love a bit of irony. It'll be hilarious!" He winked.

"So you're going to mock the creatures that are killing everyone in this town? Yeah, smooth move idiot - Way to get on their good side: by pissing them off." Amy said, playfully punching his arm.

"Eh, it'll be a laugh." He shrugged, using that couldn't-care-less attitude that he knew drove Amy and I crazy.

"Well I'm going as a Zombie bride. Just because it's Halloween and you have to dress up as gross creatures doesn't mean you can't add a girly twist."

"Fair enough." Johnny said, an amused look on his face.

"Uh, I'll probably go as Super Woman." I said, picking the first idea that came into my head.

"Cool, I like it." Johnny said with a smile, and Amy nodded.

"Soo, does anyone else wonder if the Vampires will just come as themselves to the dance? You know, fangs bared, big-collared cloaks... It's practically their one opportunity to like, be themselves." Johnny said. Amy and I just rolled our eyes in perfect unison - an art that we had perfected over the years.

"Come on, won't it be cool to see them in Vamp-mode? In all their Vampire glory?"

Sure Johnny, but somehow I doubt that...

I had finally made it through 4th Period and now it was lunch. I'd just about managed to get this far into the day without having any urges - which was a mean feat. I'm actually quite proud of myself. I walked into the canteen from my Art room and joined the back of the queue. I stood on my tiptoes and peered round the people in front of me to see what was being served: fish and chips. My stomach lurched at the thought of the greasy food. I couldn't believe that just a few days ago I would have loved eating that, but not now. I didn't want to draw attention to myself and make people think I was anorexic, so I fished around in my blazer pocket until I found my lunch money, and settled back on my heels in preparation for the long wait. I tried to distract myself from the person in front of me in the queue and how close I was to them. He was about a head taller than me, so I was the same height as his neck. Not good.

Someone tapped me on the shoulder, and just from the tap I could tell who it was, because I could feel sparks wherever he touched. The butterflies already starting fluttering around in my stomach and I tried to suppress a grin of excitement as I turned around to face Nathan, the boy from this morning.

"Hey, I seem to have a habit of crossing paths with you." He smiled and I was happy to see from the glint in his eye that he seemed as excited to see me and as I did to see him.

"Yeah, or maybe you're just a stalker." I joked with a wink. He laughed.

"Hmm, maybe." He winked back.

"So are you new here? I don't recognise you..?"

"Yeah, just moved here last weekend."

"Wait, you moved into Sullivan Village? Haven't you heard about the Vampires, are you crazy?" I was aware that I was warning him about myself, but oh well.

"Yeah well my parents are kind of obsessed with Vampires. Can't get enough of them. Once they heard on the news about this place they had to move here, to see it for themselves."

"Wow, that's... brave."

"More like insane."

"Did you want to come with them?"

"Well in a way, no. I mean, moving into a town infested with Vampires is not exactly my cup of tea. But they're my parents and I don't want them to leave without me. They said I didn't have to go if I didn't want to, that I could stay with my Aunt and Uncle but I don't know... There just seemed to be something pulling me to this place, you know?"

"Uh, no." I said with a smile. He looked down, clearly embarrassed at saying something not exactly under the category of 'cool' - though I would beg to differ. "But I think it's sweet. I mean, you're practically talking about fate, right? I'm a big believer in fate too." I smiled at him again, triggering one of his awe-inspiring ones in response.

"You are?"

"Yeah, everything happens for a reason!" I joked. Just then we reached the front of the queue, and I asked the lunch-lady reluctantly for fish and chips. She scooped everything onto a plate and handed it to me with a warm smile.

"Thank you!" I lied. I took it from her and went to the fridge to get a bottle of water, and then to queue up to pay. Once I'd paid I walked a little away from the till, searching for the table where Johnny and Amy were sitting. While I was still searching, Nathan walked past me, looking lost.

"Hey! Do you want to sit with me and my friends? I know the first day is hard, you know, not knowing where to sit and everything. Of course if you don't want to that's cool." I said, feeling awkward.

"Ok, thanks." He smiled. Just then I saw the blonde hair of Amy sitting at a table across the room, and I led him over to where she sat with Johnny.

"Hey guys, this is Nathan. He's new here." I said, sitting down and placing my plate and drink on the table. Nathan came and sat down next to me. I don't know why, but whenever I'm with him I seem to forget about the urges and stuff. He just so distracting.

"Hi, nice to meet you." He said with a shy smile that turned my insides into jelly.

"Nice to meet you too! I'm Amy." She said, holding out her hand for him to shake. He shook it and smiled at her, and she sent a flirty one back. I suddenly felt very protective over Nathan, but I didn't really know why.

"I'm Johnny." He said, not offering his hand. I tried not to read too much into it. We chatted as we ate, and Nathan retold his story about why he moved here, though I noticed he left out the part about fate, about feeling pulled towards here. I felt kinda special to be the only one of us to know that kind of sentimental fact about him.

I managed to force down at least half of my lunch, but felt quite sick. I took a big gulp of my water. Nathan gave me a worried look that said "Are you feeling okay?" I just nodded.

All too soon the lunch bell rang, and I reluctantly left Nathan to go with Amy and Johnny to our last class of the day. I don't know what it is about that guy, but there's something about him that's just so... I don't know, but I do know that whenever I'm around him it feels right, like a part of me that I didn't realise was missing has been returned; and whenever I'm not around him I just can't wait till I see him again. It sounds soppy, I know.. I'm probably just seriously overreacting, but I like this guy, and I really can't wait to see him again.
