Vampires Will Never Hurt You

We all promised, if one of us were to be bitten, another would have to stake them. It was my job to stake Gerard, Gerard's to stake Mikey, Mikey's to stake Frank, Frank's to stake Ray and Ray's to stake me. We were only safe as long as the sun was out but when night fell we knew that it wasn't safe for anyone or anything.

3. Chapter Three

I felt the fire coursing through my veins. I couldn’t move, but I could hear everything they said.
“He’s been bitten! We shouldn’t let him live through the turn. It’s too dangerous. Mikey, come on, you can’t be serious about leaving him like this until he eventually wakes up and tears our throats out with his teeth.”  someone said.
“There are three possibilities. He could turn, he could die or his body could fight off the venom if there isn’t enough to turn him.”
“That’s a one in a million chance. He’s more likely to turn or die.”
“There’s still a chance.”
“Are we sure that it was a bite to turn and not a bite to drink?”
“A bite to drink doesn’t look like that. He’s been bitten to turn and we can’t let him turn. He’ll be blind, we’ll just be food to him.”

I wanted to sit up and tell them that I was fine and I wasn’t going to turn on them. Just that I’d like to be staked before I go nuts, but all I could do was lie still as the venom traveled throughout my body. It burned. I wanted to scream.

It was my turn to watch Gerard. We’d all been taking shifts to make sure that he didn’t wake up and disappear. I was terrified, he’d most likely turn or die. I didn’t want to be the one who had to kill him and I didn’t want him to be killed. The situation at the moment, really was, kill or be killed.

It’d been so quiet since Gerard was bit. The entire team was falling apart without him, he was the light at the end of your tunnels and now that light had gone out. I moved my had to hold his. He was so fragile, it was agonizing to see the usually cheery Gerard just, motionless. He looked like he was dead, the colour had been drained from his face and that left a cold presence deep in my heart. I wish that I’d not moved from where I was, he wouldn’t have gone looking for me, instead I could have protected him as we got Mikey to safety.

I wished that I could go back in time and keep him from getting bit. But I wasn’t a time lord in the TARDIS and we get whatever future was dealt to us. Whether we got the long or short end of the stick we owed it to the ones that cared to carry on, we’ll carry on. I gave Gerard’s had a light squeeze, hoping that it would comfort him.

I felt a light squeeze back and I jumped, quickly pulling my hand back with a yelp. I watched Gerard but he didn’t move any further. His eyes were still closed, lashes casting thin shadows on his cheekbones. I sighed and moved back to where I was sitting before and took his hand again.

“Mikey...” he whispered. I quickly turned my head to look at Gerard and saw that his eyes were open, with a stunned expression. I gave his hand yet another squeeze to reassure him.
“He’s not here, I’ll go get him.” I offered.
“N-no. Jess, stay.” he stuttered. I sighed and stayed where I was.

 

~Gerard~

 

I looked at Jess. She looked so different, her skin was paler, she had the purple bruise of a handprint on her neck and a few strips of torn cloth were wrapped around her wrist. She was fidgeting, I knew that she wanted to run, she thought I’d attack her, she didn’t want to be alone with a vampire. I knew that the venom had turned me, I felt stronger, I wasn’t tired anymore, as I had been since the vampires took over. I was afraid to move, I didn’t want to move to fast or break something with my strength. I wouldn’t be hungry for blood until the first nightfall after my change. She had to stake me before then.

“Go, get Mikey, please.” I whispered. I had to talk to him, tell him the things I’d wanted him to know.
“I’ll be back with him.” she said as she scurried out of the room. I could smell the fear on her, I was ashamed of what I’d become, but I didn’t regret what I did. I would welcome death, knowing that I saved my brother and Jess.

I sat up and looked down at my hands, twiddling my fingers. I had no urge to do anything, just sit and wait for Mikey’s disappointment. Everyone’s disappointment.

“Gerard?” Mikey asked warily from the doorway. My head snapped up to face him, I had a grin plastered on my face but it quickly faded when I saw the dried trails of tears streaking down his cheeks.
“Mikey...” I whispered, “it’s good to see you little brother.”
“Gerard, what have you done? You should have just run.” he said as he sat down next to me.
“I couldn’t. You know I can’t just run.” I said.
“But you should have! If you didn’t try and kill that one vamp Jess you not have to stake you!” he shouted, the pain was clear in his voice. I didn’t want to hurt anyone but I guess, I now have no other choice.

“Why can’t you accept the fact that I have to die?” I yelled.
“Because I can’t stand to lose you!”
