A Hunters guide to Leeches and Alleycats

Lexi Pierce is a completely normal student, who just transferred to Mid City High School in Davenport.

Well, if normal includes a vampire hunter of the five families.
Lexi thought there was five, at least. Turns out she was right. But there is a group of wannabe's who seems to be trying to get both themselves AND her killed.
And a vampire who might be flirting with her. And might also be trying to kill her. Maybe both.

“Most people at least bring flowers when they ask people to prom,” she added.
“Flowers die,” he pointed out.
“So does Hunters,” Lexi replied quickly.
“Okay. I’ll bring you flowers when you die,” he promised her.

5. CHAPTER FIVE

“Lexi! I see you made it,” Weasly greeted. Lexi nodded, still drowsely.

“I hope you’re not too tired, I was thinking we could do some exercise,” Weasly informed while taking a timer out of his desk.

“Wait, now?” Lexi asked, her voice full of disbelief. Weasly looked at her with confusion in his eyes. “It’s 6:30,” she elaborated.

 

Her complaints had made no difference, and Weasly had pulled her with him to the running track behind the school. Lexi was definetely not a morning person - well, actually she was, but only if she went to bed really early. It was a part of the hunter experience. If your body is on maximum all the time, it needs a lot of food and a lot of sleep.

The morning fog was surrounding the school, laying on the track like a warm blanket - except it was freezing.

Lexi’s training clothes consisted of a thin material following her every shape; it was practical. It was comfortable, perfect for working out and you never got too hot in it. The last one didn’t usually bother Lexi, but this early? A cashmere sweater she wouldn’t have minded.

“Okay, I want to time you and see how easily you get tired, so I want you to run five rounds,” Weasly told her while looking at the stop watch, trying to get it to work.

“FIVE?” Lexi asked in disbelief. “You’re a hunter, it shouldn’t be a problem.”

Lexi rolled her eyes and snorted on the same time, followed by a bunch of mumbling informing Weasly what she thinks of his comments right now. Well, it would have if he had been able to hear it.

“Start runnning, Lexi!” Weasly ordered. Lexi shot him a deadly look before starting slowly up.

“Faster, Pearce!” he yelled in a commanding way. Lexi would have argued, but decided to just speed up. It was the easier option, and Lexi was still tired.

Not remotely out of breath she speeded up, and ran the first round.

“You should be able to go faster,” he announced, starting to get on Lexi’s nerves.

 

There were no sign of Lexi and Weasly in the classroom, so Will went out searching for them. Which didn’t take long. He quickly heard Weasly’s voice bark orders, and just followed the sound.

Lexi was doing laps on the running track while Weasly was leaned against the barrier separating the track from the seats. Will went over there while grinding his arms; it was a cold morning.

“Weasly, morning,” he greeted and waved to Lexi, who looked quite annoyed.

“What are you doing here this early, Will?” Weasly asked, still concentrating on the little watch hanging around his neck.

“Well, you told us to stop by tomorrow morning. Here we are. Tomorrow morning is now,” Will explained and looked at Lexi; “Damn, she can run fast.”

“Not fast enough. She’s a hunter, she should be able to run faster. And, even though I actually meant for Lexi to work out, you’re free to join her. I’ll time you, too,” Weasly offered, still not looking at Weasly.

“Nah, that’s okay,” Will responded, leaning against the barrier next to Weasly.

“Last round!” Weasly yelled, which made Lexi speed up. She was running faster than Will could possibly do, and even so, Weasly seemed convinced she was able to do better.

“Making me run five laps this early. You know, I’ve thought a lot of dead creatures, but this, this is evil,” Lexi said, in between her rapid breaths.

“When aren’t running evil?” Will added. Weasly shook his head before answering; “We still have about an hour, so I think we should try some more terrain based training.”

“Oh, is that like parkour?” Will wondered. “Can I see my time?” she asked and nodded towards the notepad Weasly had been scribbling down on. Weasly handed it to her, and she looked down.

“Come on, that’s not all that bad,” Lexi argued. Will took the pad from her and looked at it.

“Are you kidding me? All your laps was in two minutes!” Will declared, his voice full of admiration.

“Still, remember to keep up your training,” Weasly concluded while opening the gate. He let Will in first, but stopped Lexi.

“You can jump,” he mentioned before closing it behind himself.

“Why? We all know I can do it, why do I have to proof it?” Lexi asked, confused to why Weasly was so stern when it came to exercise.

“My job is to keep you safe, I won’t be capable of doing that if you are not on top of your game,” Weasly explained, by that ending the discussion. Lexi looked at him and nodded, before taking three steps back. She used to of them as runup, and the last one to set off from. If Will had been a cartoon he was convinced his eyes would have jumped out, and his jaw would have felt off. Lexi seemed to have no trouble at all jumping the 1.5 meters, and landed casually on the other side.

“Good. Will, you might want to take a seat, this is going to take a while.”

 

“Hey!” Lexi yelled as she got through the door. She could hear her mom yelling ‘hi’ back, and decided to follow the voice.

“What are you doing?” Lexi asked her mother, who was searching through a big box on the table.

“Oh, good, you can help me.” Her mother pulled Lexi in front of her and handed her a dress. Lexi looked at it before pulling it over her head, on top of her regular clothes. The dress was shapeless, but the red pattern on it was quite beautiful.

“Doesn’t Maddie usually help you with these kinds of things?” Lexi asked while her mother folded the bottom of the dress and putting in security stitches.

“Yeah, she’s not home yet.” Did her voice sound concerned, or was it just Lexi?

“Oh - well she’s probably just with a friend,” Lexi assured her, while her mother put in the last stitch. “Yeah, I guess you’re right. She’s been out about everyday since we got here, actually,” her mother informed her. Lexi felt her eyebrows raise slowly.

“Really? That’s not very like her,” Lexi mentioned, but continued when she saw her mothers face; “but it’s good! She didn’t have a lot of friends back home, so she’s probably just excited to have some now.” Lexi kept assuring her mother that Maddie had just forgotten to send a message as they prepared dinner, but ended up promising she would go out looking for her if she was not back after dinner.

She wasn’t back after dinner.

Dawn was early - after all, spring had just begun. And after dark was vampire hours, which honestly caused a little bit of anxiety for Lexi. Maddie could easily get hurt out there on her own. Hopefully she was just hanging out at a friends house; a friend who hadn’t invited a vampire into their home. There had been a lot of questions from people who didn’t know about vampires, wondering if that trick really worked. Which was silly - what did they need it for anyways? Lexi thought to herself while walking down the cold street.

Vampires were partially demons, which angels tried to protect the humans from. Therefore the angels had laid a protection on the human homes, meaning no soulless could get in. Sadly it only worked with vampires and really weak demons. And there was even records of vampires it didn’t work of. Like Dracula. Who, by the way, was totally ruining the bad name of the vampires for everyone else. The only reason he’s gotten so much power was that he created fear which demons just worshipped, so they’d given him even more.

Her phone rang from in her pocket. She sighed while pulling her gloves of with her teeth before answering.

“Lexi speaking.”

“Lexi, hi, uh, I, uh,” Will’s stuttering made Lexi worry even more.

“What’s up Will? Can it wait? I’m kind of busy,” Lexi admitted while speeding up a little.

“How come?” He asked while taking a bite of what sounded like.. An apple. Or maybe a pear, Lexi added.

“Maddie’s missing.”

“Wait, Maddie’s missing? Where are you, I’ll come help look for her,” Will added, and Lexi could hear noise in the background.

“Oh, and Will?” she waited for him to reply before continuing; “Can you bring food?”

 

“So, do you know why she left?”

“She didn’t leave, she just didn’t.. Come home,” Lexi corrected him with her mouth full of food.

“Tell me again, if you’ve already eaten, why did you make me bring food?” It was clear that Will was a bit annoyed by the fact that Lexi had made him make him a sandwich. Lexi looked at him with a shrug, not even a tiny bit sorry; “I was hungry.”

“So, where might she be?” Will asked and looked around; “Where does she usually hang?”

“Uh, I’m not sure.” Will shook his shoulders, letting Lexi know it didn’t matter; “Who is her friends? I might know them, I have a brother her age, remember?”

“I’m not actually sure,” Lexi mumbled. “Okay. What DO you know about her?”

Lexi sighed.

“I guess I haven’t had a lot of time for her lately. I’ve been training and at The Venue with you and Jessica, and she’s been… I don’t know my own sister!” Lexi complained.

“Hey, hey, it’s okay. You know, I don’t know too much about my brother either. Besides… Does your sister often go to.. Parties?” Will asked. Lexi looked at him confused.

“You see there’s this party tonight - my brother has been talking about it all week, apparently everyone’s going,” Will explained. Lexi sighed. Apparently her little sister was at a party.

 

“It’s just down-””Let me guess, just down in the house were all the noise is coming from?” Lexi guessed. Will looked annoyed at her. “You know, just because she’s at a party doesn’t mean she’s dying. My brother’s there, too, I’m sure he’s fine.”

“And that’s fine, but Maddie is nowhere close to awear of the dangers out there!” Lexi argued as they went through the garden gate to the house. Will shrugged his shoulder without answering.

The music got louder, and all around them the party was starting up. It was still early, so even though the party seemed big it would probably get even bigger soon.

The yard was full of kids, who seemed to be quite a bit older than Maddie, who was only 12. way too young to be at a party, according to Lexi.

“Let’s go in,” Lexi muttered after deciding that she wasn’t outside. She went in without waiting for Will, who shook his head before following her on his own.

“Have you seen a girl, 12 years old, brown hair?” Lexi asked a random guy who was waiting in line to the bathroom.

“Sorry man.”

“I’ll look upstairs if you look down here?” Will offered. Lexi nodded relieved for not having to do it on her own. Lexi looked around before going in a random door, which turned out to lead to the living room, where the music was even louder.

“Oh you have got to be kidding me.” Lexi knew that voice. She could feel her face going stiff before turning around.

“Is there any parties you do not attend to?” Lexi asked Nate. There didn’t even go a second before he responded.

“Not when I’m throwing it.” Lexi looked around in the house. “You live here?” He shook his head.

“It’s a surprise party. Which I by the way don’t remember inviting you to,” he added and tilted his head. Almost like a bird trying to understand the world around it, Lexi thought.

“No? Do you remember inviting my 12 year old little sister?” Lexi asked with a smile that looked more like a warning than anything else.

“Lexi, I found her!” Will’s voice sounded behind him. Lexi turned around and saw a very irritated and poorly dressed Maddie with crossed arms standing behind Will.

“What on earth are you wearing?” Lexi asked shocked, but received nothing but a shoulder shrug.

“Relax, she’s just hanging out. Have you had anything to drink?” Will asked her. She shook her head confused. “Have you taken any drugs? Smoked anything?” Again, she shook her head. “Have you in any way done something you shouldn’t have done?”

Will turned back to Lexi; “See? She’s fine.” Lexi could feel the anger in her rising, growing, and her eyes shooting lightnings.

“Listen up Goldylocks, Maddie is 12 years old and this is an unsupervised party. But, we are not having this discussion because I’m taking her home, and you, you just… Stop following me!” Lexi ordered before rushing out with Maddie and Will by her side.

“It’s my party!” Nate yelled after her, but Lexi was already gone. He followed her out in the garden.

“Lexi!”

Lexi sighed before turning around. She said something to Will who nodded before going back to Nate.

“What?” she asked, clearly not in a good mood.

“You seem to know Rae quite well,” he said while crossing his arms across his chest. Lexi shook her head; “Not at all. In fact he only tracked me down to tell me to get out of ‘his’ town,” she explained, and made sure Nathaniel got the sarcasm when she said ‘his’.

“Well, that’s not going to happen,” Nate said, obviously without a care in the world.

“That’s what I said,” Lexi muttered, still incredibly offended.

“No, I don’t care about that. We want you to work with us,” Nate explained. Lexi raised her eyebrows.

“I don’t know who ‘you’ are, and frankly, I don’t care. I’m going to take my sister home, and then I’m gonna stay out of trouble like I always do,” Lexi listed up before turning around on her heels and going back to her sister and boyfriend.

“Good luck with that,” Nate mumbled while shaking his head. She was going to work with them, whether she wanted to or not.
