8. His Secret is Revealed
I sat in my room at my uncles not crying after. It happened again. There was still five guys waiting. All lined up. Once he finished another came in. I didn't cry I had gone back to the feeling nothing like I did when I was younger. I'm not special. Never have been. Man after man. None even had the dignity to not do it. They didn't say anything after just got up pulled the trousers up and left. After it all, my uncle screamed at me to come to the living room, I put on some underwear and one of Alex's old jerseys and walked out. My uncle was in is chair again with his blond nurses at his feet. He looked at me and then spoke to his girls, "Ladies, do you mind leaving the room? I don't want you to get the wrong impression." He said standing up and taking the girls hands, "Of course not, we'll be waiting." They said in sink with eachother and my uncle hit their asses as they walked away, in their pure silk underwear. I stood before my uncle. He hit me straight in the side of the head. I feel to the ground. He hit me again. Grabbing my shirt he throw me into the wall, "You stopped battered! I'm going to kill you!" He screamed to me as he throw me again this time I went through the timber wall. The wall cut my arms and legs. My uncle kept hitting me. And then the door burst open. "YOU FILTH FAGGOT STAY AWAY FROM MY GIRLFRIEND!" Someone screamed at my uncle throwing him to the floor. The blood was hot on my body. I had cuts everywhere, I tried moving but it made the bleeding worse. The next thing I know is as I stand up, I hear the tearing of flesh. The scream of my uncles girlfriends and the deep heavy breathing of the man standing over my uncle'a lifeless body. The man standing over my uncle turned to face the girls, I could see only his side, blood dripping from his fingers to the floor. The girls coward in fear. And then he turned to me, blood stained his lips. His eyes as red as the blood. It was Alex.
I started to fall. Trying to find my way out. Then I felt a warm, liquid under me. I lifted my hand up. Pure red blood. I looked around only to see a sea of velvet redness. The blood wasn't warm anymore it started to become colder. The sea went from velvet red to deep red in a matter of minutes and I woke up in a pure white room with a painting sitting on the wall in front of me. I looked around to see Alex with his head on the bed. His cloths still had blood stains as well as his hands and fingers. "I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry I couldn't save you from what he had planed." Then he sat up and was shocked to see me sitting up. I started to cry, tears rushing down my face. I couldn't speak. I was so confused I had so many questions. Why did he come for me? Why do you care so much? What are you?
Alex hugged me. And kissed my head. "I've just got to tell the headmaster you're awake." He said letting go and leaving the room. I laid in the bed. Closing my eyes I let the demon in to do what he wanted. He sat on the chair in the ball room. Watching and waiting. Then he spoke, "That monster killed him the man who cared for you from the time you were a baby he's always looked after you and you let him die all he wanted was to have money and be happy and you let hi-" I opened my eyes and looked out the window, Alex and the headmaster came in, "It's my fault he's dead isn't it. I should've ever left him. After all he did feed me and cloth me. He didn't have to do that." I said not even looking at them, "Why do you care what happens to me?" I asked turning around to face them, the headmaster stood there gob-smacked "Is it because you think I'm easy?" I asked Alex he looked at me "No! Not at all! I care for you because you are an amazing girl. That first time we meet when I had to take you to crazy town over there I couldn't take my eyes off you. You make every room you walk into brighter when you smile but yet you don't smile, you've made me a better person, and I love you with all my heart! Katie I love you and I would die for you I would die protecting you!" Alex said sitting on the bed and putting his hand on mine, I wanted to say those three words but three others came out, "What are you?" And I looked at the sheets about to scream, Alex looked at me, "You won't be scared will you?" He asked and I shock my head that was a stupid question after what I had just been through, "I'm a Pure blood Vampire." He said looking me in the eyes. I studied his face the put my finger to his lip he opened his mouth and I felt his fangs. I didn't pull away I pulled myself closer to his chest.
It had been a couple of days since I found out he was a Vampire. I hadn't talked much and when the others came over I would often try and disappear up to my room. "Guys don't worry. She's just feeling like it's all her fault and she doesn't want people to look at her she's been like this with me to." Alex would tell them every-time I walked away saying I needed the bathroom or to get something. I still didn't smile or laugh like I used to. I sat alone mostly at the window seal reading or watching Sherlock and Doctor Who. Alex would come sit with me and sometimes I would sit closer to him and other times at the other end of the lounge. I couldn't do it. I wasn't afraid that he was a Vampire. It had nothing to do with that. I was afraid I would be taken away again and I didn't want to be close to anyone so it's didn't hurt.
