The Undead Effect

(For the Coldest Girl in Coldtown Competition) Hollow Mill may look 17, but she certainly is not. Truly, she has been alive for several centuries. Hollow is a member of the Undead Effect, - UE for short - the largest clan of vampires. Her goal is to be a spy for the UE. That means going out into the land of the humans, the living world, and bringing back information for the vampires. But as a spy, Hollow is no longer Hollow. Now, she's Ava, the regular human from New York. But how well can she fit in?

Oh. My. God. 

Today was the day.

I was going out into the living world.

I stood at the gates, waiting to be let out into the land of the humans. Rose, my trainer, leaned into me, quizzing me on my story.

My name was Ava Fox. I was 17 years old. I came from Long Island, New York. My mother and father were dead and I lived with my Aunt Helen. I didn't like animals and my favorite food was pizza. My favorite color was blue and my favorite song was Away by Some Pop Band, a band that the humans adored. I wanted to be a writer when I grew up and I couldn't sing for my life. The scar on my right kneecap was from when I fell off my bicycle when I was 6. 

"What's your favorite school subject?" Rose whispered.

"Easy, English," I replied, fidgeting with my fingers.

"How long in between blinks?" she asked.

"Between 7 to 15 seconds." It was true that us vampires didn't need to blink. It was weird, but after a while, you got used to it.

She grinned at me. "Wow, Hollow- I mean Ava! I can't believe this is actually happening. Oh, my little girl growing up!" She squeezed me tightly, making me laugh. It was especially funny because Rose only looked to be about 10 years old when really, she was 700 years old. I used to be uncomfortable with her physical appearance, but over the time I'd been training with her, I learned to ignore it.

"Aw, thanks Rose. I wouldn't be here without you," I said, hugging her back. I was smiling so wide that it almost hurt. After a few moments she pulled back, smoothed her bleach blonde hair and composed herself. 

"Well, I guess this is goodbye..."


We were both silent for a minute.

"Good luck, Hollow," she whispered, looking at her black shoes.

"Thanks." My voice was barely audible. I would see her in a month, and really, a month wasn't that long. I turned away from her and walked out the gate that was ascending into the air to create a space for me to leave.

"Oh, and Hollow?" I looked back at her small figure. "Don't forget to breathe."

I laughed. "Don't forget to train!" I shouted. 

And then the Undead Effect was gone and I was standing in the living world.
