The next morning
I woke up, truly surprised. Alice was out cold in the hall. I ran over. "Alice?" I asked. Alice opened her eyes. I helped her up. "Okay I really shouldn't tell you but Blake hurt her!" She almost shouted. I turned to Lauren. She was pale. I ran over and held her in my arms. "Lauren?" I asked silently.
I know it's stereotypical that vampires don't breathe, but they do.
But Lauren wasn't.
"Lauren?" I asked again, tears slipping out of my eyes. She had bite marks on her wrist. Blake must've poisoned her.
I began crying. "Lauren?" I asked louder. I fell to my knees and craddled her cold body. "Please-" The words hung in my throat. I was sobbing now.
Then I remembered the baby.
"No!" I shouted. Taylor ran in. I looked up to see him fighting Blake off of Alice. I couldn't think straight- Lauren was gone and any hope of a child was, too. Two guys appeared behind Blake. I didn't think to help, I held Lauren closer. "Please, stay, I need you." I sobbed. "Chase!" Alice screamed. Blake was strangling Taylor and the two guys were holding Alice. I gently set Lauren down, stomped into the hall, and began throwing punches and breaking bones and twisting arms and legs. I stared Blake directly in the eyes. "You killed her." I said. I grabbed a daggar hidden in my pocket, I grabbed it before I entered the hall. I held it to his chest. "I'm going to make you pay." I said. Alice and Taylor stared as I unleashed a dark side I always hid from Alice and Lauren. I dropped the blade and feircly snapped Blake's neck. He fell limp by the two other dead men. "Chase," Alice said. "The kid." She said. "I know..." I trailed off. I was still full of anger, but sorrow swallowed it up quickly. I ran back to Lauren. "I don't know how to removed posion without posioning myself, and I can't do that to Lauren. She'll be crushed, but I love her." I said. Taylor grabbed my shoulder. "Bite me." He said. "No!" Alice shouted. I thought about it, and Taylor forced me too.
After Taylor became a vampire again, he removed the posion from Lauren. He quickly hugged Alice, knowing what would happen. Lauren sprang up just as Taylor fell. "No!!" Alice shrieked. I darted towards Lauren and hugged her. She ran over to Alice.
After explaining, I had to tell Alice that there's no returning for Taylor.
"I'm sorry." I said. "Yeah, me too." Alice said.
