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.

CHAPTER 14

 

“Morning love.”

By the sound of the british voice Lexi jumped up, already with the knife in her hand. Rae grabbed her wrist before she got a chance to jab it into him; “Wanna try that again sweetheart?”

Lexi pulled her arm away from him and threw the knife on the bed; it’d never be enough anyways.

“I thought so,” Rae snickered and looked up and down her body; “That’s what you sleep in?”

She quickly remembered the shirt she was wearing as the only thing and grabbed it with both hands to pull it down as much as possible.

“Turn around,” she mumbled and pulled a pair of black jeans out the closet.

“Nope,” he replied in a casual voice and sat down in her wingback chair in the corner. Lexi shot him the death stare before turning around herself and quickly pulling the too tight jeans on.

“Okay. What do you want?” she asked as she turned back to him, this time dressed appropriately.

“What? No cookies or tea, now not even a friendly hello? Manners surely was different in my days,” Rae commented and looked around in her room; “But I guess, this time is my time.” Lexi looked uneasy at him, not sure what to do with herself.

“Oh, will you stop being so jittery, I’m not going to hurt you. Have a seat.” She ignored the fact that a deadly vampire had just invited her to sit in her own room and took a seat on the bed she’d minutes earlier been sleeping in.

“What are you doing here?” she repeated and looked around for something to protect herself with in case it’d become necessary.

“Can’t a friend stop by another friends house and just pop in for a quick cuppa?” he asked and grabbed the mug on her nightstand. He took a sip of it before frowning; “What kind of rubbish tea is this?” he complained and spit it back in the mug, making Lexi frown as well.

“It’s water.” Rae looked terrified at her; “Why the bloody hell are you using a mug for that? Blasphemy! Don’t you have any pride, hunter?”

“We were out of glasses,” Lexi explained with a shrug, not sure whether she should be laughing or scared to the bones; “And you’re the one to talk, you just drank of my water. You do realize I’ve been drinking it, too, don’t you?” Rae snorted, spread his legs and leaned back.

“So? I’m not scared of catching your goonies.” Lexi looked unimpressed at him

“Why are you here, Rae?”

“Speaking of why, why the bloody hell were you screaming when the sun was up today? Trying to wake up a man in a coma in New Zealand?” Lexi looked shocked at him; “You could hear me?” Rae shrugged again; “No, I missed the act itself, but I’ve heard quite enough. I believe you were calling me a stupid liferuining vampire.”

“I was just hoping to get a little satisfaction,” Lexi mumbled, blood rushing to her cheeks.

“Well? Did you?” Lexi looked at her fingers which was fingering a tiny hole in the blanket.

“No,” she murmured and accidentally ripped the fabric even more apart.

“Hm. Did Nate do or say anything worth mentioning?” he asked and picked up a pencil from the desk. Lexi shook her head.

“Ever chew on these?” he asked and held up the pencil; “I used to.”

In front of Lexi his upper fangs grew to twice their size, seemingly harming him in no way. He took the pencil into his mouth and gently brushed his teeth against the yellow pencil.

The sound of the two things brushing against each other was both silent and deafening.

“But, nothing you want to tell me?” He asked. Lexi swallowed the lump in her throat before shaking her head again.

His jaw moved up, closing his mouth and breaking the pen in half. When he spit the little stump out in his hand his fangs were completely gone and once again he looked human.

“Why were you spending the night at his, then?” he asked and held the little piece up between two fingers to examine it.

“That’s not part of our deal. I don’t have to tell you,” Lexi said, putting on a brave face for her own sake.

“No?” Rae asked, standing up. Lexi had never noticed his height until now, but he seemed to be much taller than she’d anticipated.

“I spent the night,” Lexi burst out as her breath became more uneasy, just as she did herself.

“Yes?” Rae encouraged and squatted down in front of her.

“I.. All his friends, I mean his men, they did, too, I borrowed his sister’s room,” she elaborated.

“Amy’s room? Alone?” he asked in a voice both extremely calm and cold as ice. She nodded quickly.

“Well, that’s good to know. Thank you,” he added in his usual confident voice, yet a hint of doubt shadowing the ‘thank you’. Rae jumped up and let Lexi out of her trance.

“Yeah,” Lexi mumbled and ran her fingers through her hair. What just happened to her?

Rae hold the tiny pencil up for a second before throwing it to Lexi who caught it in the air.

He casually went over to her window and stuck one leg out so he was sitting on the window shelf as if it was a horse.

“Oh, and, by the way,” he added and slid his other leg through, standing on the roof, holding the balance with his hands on the upper part of Lexi’s window.

“If it’s satisfaction you’re after” a crooked smile spread his lips; “You have my number.”

He let go and fell through the air before landing on the ground with a soft bump.

Quickly Lexi ran over to the window; “Actually, I don’t,” she hissed as loudly as she dared in fright of wakening up her sister or mother.

“Was that a complaint, love?” Rae pondered, clearly having gained his usual self esteem.

Lexi smacked the window and pulled the curtains in front of it. She put her head in her hands. What the hell was going on with her life?

 

“Lexi, we need you.”

Lexi looked annoyed up at Oliver who was standing tall besides me, looking distressed around.

“I literally just sat down,” she argued and took a bite.

“Lexi, just, come on,” Oliver mumbled, not looking her in the eyes even once.

“No. Last time I was ‘needed’ it was because you found a group of three. Three, Oliver, three,” Lexi declared. Oliver sighed again and looked beggingly at her; “Lexi, please.”

First now Lexi caught sight of how nervous he was.

“Okay.” She put the sandwich back on the wrapping paper and turned to Will; “I have to go Will. You’ll be okay, right?”

“Yeah, yeah, of course, I’ll just go sit with Jess… Wherever she is,” Will promised with a grin. Lexi nodded and followed Oliver out the cafeteria.

“So, what’s going on?” Lexi asked as she caught up with Oliver who simply shook his head.

“Okay, well, where are we going?” she asked, trying to keep up with Oliver who seemed to be in quite a hurry.

He opened the door to outside and went out without waiting for Lexi.

He stopped rather abruptly outside the door, causing Lexi to almost walk into him. She reminded herself to be grateful for being a hunter.

Her mouth opened slowly.

Maybe being a hunter wasn’t something she should be grateful for.

Around the stairs all of Nate’s men was gathered - except for one. Danielle was sobbing into Kate’s shoulder, Brody’s entire body was shaking, even Nate had tears in his eyes.

The show had attracted curious students who was standing behind the group. As soon as Oliver came out the door the gathering acted as the red sea by spreading and letting him the entire way to the police tape.

From there they were able to see Kaydens entire body, twisted and bended on the stairs.

The color in Lexi’s cheeks disappeared and left her white as a vampire. She looked up from the body and met Nate’s gaze. He nodded towards the right before receiving an accepting nod from Lexi who was already on her way.

“Do we know who’s behind?” Was her first question. He shook his head; “I’m assuming Rae.” Lexi looked up; “No, it can’t be him.” Nate raised an eyebrow but before he could say anything they got interrupted by Michael and Brody.

“We wanna go look for Rae. He has to be somewhere,” Brody stated. Nate was clearly not in the mood to handle it, so Lexi stepped in.

“Not a good idea,” Lexi added; “It’s daytime anyways. He’s probably sleeping.”

“That’ll only make it easier. You should come with, Lexi. You are the hunter after all,” Michael mentioned. She thought about it for a second before replying.

“No, I don’t think that’s a good idea. I have to go make sure my friends are safe.” Lexi looked defiantly at the boys in front of her.

“Lexi, we are your friends, when are you gonna get that?” Ryan had sneaked up on Lexi from behind. Or, he would have if she hadn’t been the hunter.

“Kayden wasn’t. You and him didn’t get along… Why was that?” Michaels arms crossed upon his chest.

“No reason, we just..””No, you didn’t get along because he pointed out something that night you met those vampires” Michael decided; “What did he say? Does anyone remember?”

“No. And now we won't get a chance to ask.” Lexi looked around at them, studied their growing disbelief in her. Part of her wanted to ask them if they thought she’d kill someone just for standing up to her, but something stopped her.

“Excuse me? We have some questions for a Nathaniel Holland?” Lexi looked behind her and saw two police officers, one male and one female.

“That’s me, sir.” Nathaniel’s arms crossed his chest; “Is there a problem?”.

“No, not at all. The two of you were close it seems, we have to talk to the people near him; family, friends, that stuff,” the redheaded lady explained with a professional smile.

“And if you could point us in the way of a Alexandria Pearce, too?” the man added. A cold smile reached Nate’s lips; “I don’t believe I need to.” Nate took a step to the side to reveal Lexi who had until then been hidden behind him.

 

“Hey.” Lexi looked up from her phone and met Nate’s eyes. She sighed before hitting send on the message to her mom and putting her phone back in her pocket.

“How was jail?” Lexi started walking, which Nate took as an invitation to walk along.

“You’ve changed since last I saw you. I’ve heard prison does that to people,” Nate mentioned as he caught up with her.

“I wasn’t in prison, I was just at the station you… You stupid vampire hunter wannabe!” Without Lexi noticing her voice had reached an impressively high pitch.

“Someone’s in a mood,” Nate commented in a surprisingly cheerful voice.

“Yes, yes, in fact, I am in a mood, you know why? I’m being questioned. For murder!” Lexi cried and turned around to face Nate; “You know damn well I didn’t hurt Kayden!”.

“Actually, I don’t know.” Nate’s voice was calm as he continued; “But I have an idea who might have done it if not you.” Lexi looked up.

“I’m gonna kill him.”

 

“Lexi, you cannot just go out looking for Rae in the middle of the night!”. Lexi’s frustration escaped through her voice; “Well, now he’s awake, and I want to kill him while he’s up and about. I want to feel the satisfaction of draining the life out of him!”. Her breath was rapid, and she stopped walking suddenly, making Nate almost walk into her.

“You’re starting to sound like one of them.” Was it fear Lexi heard in his voice?

“Good. Rae didn’t think twice about killing Kayden, if I’d been like him, he would be dead, and Kayden wouldn’t be!”

“If you were like him,” Nate grabbed Lexi’s arms; “you wouldn’t be you.” Lexi swallowed the lump in her throat and stared Nate in the eyes. “Maybe that wouldn’t be such a bad thing.”

Nate’s grip grew tighter and Lexi felt her blood rush through her entire body.

“Don’t you dare say such a thing,” he warned, his honey hair falling in front of his eyes.

“Why not? Who cares if I’m me? All everybody cares about is what I am, not who!” Lexi mumbled through her teeth.

Nate’s eyes flickered before he pushed himself forward and his lips hit hers.

And for a brief moment, for the second they were connected, there were no vampires, no hunters, not even humans. There were only the two of them.

For a second, all they had was each other and their lips, gently brushing against each other. And it was all they needed - until it wasn’t.

Lexi pulled away from the kiss, out of breath and unable to catch it again; “Nate, what the hell.”

“Don’t go after Rae on your own, Lexi,” Nate begged, his breath warm against Lexi’s skin. His hands were still resting on her upper arm as she pulled away.

“I’m the Hunter, Nate. I have to,” Lexi replied with a whisper. His eyes clinched against each other before he once again opened them and met her gaze.

“Let me do this for you. Let me handle this,” he urged.

“I can’t, Nate. I’m the hunter.” Nate pulled away, clearly frustrated; “Yeah? Well so am I! When are you going to realize that?”.

“My family was chosen, this is in my blood,” Lexi argued and crossed her arms over her chest.

“So was mine! Both my mother and father are hunters, and so am I! Like it or not, I am a hunter, too. You are not alone, Lex,” Nate tried. As he declared that Lexi felt more alone than she had in ages.

“Go, Nate.” His lips grew tight before he sighed. “Fine. Fine, Lexi. Whatever you want. You’re the one, right?”. Nate had already turned his back to Lexi and was on his way wherever he was going. Lexi’s mouth opened, but not a sound came out. Alone she stood there and watched him walk away before she turned around and prepared to do what she was born to.

“Rae! I know you’re here! Show yourself,” she commanded and felt her body prepare itself for the coming battle.

“I knew you wanted to see me,” a confident voice exclaimed behind her. Lexi turned around and faced Rae.

“Hi. I’m here to kill you.” A crooked smile appeared on his lips.

“Really? Well then we have a problem.” The smile disappeared and his fangs grew out; “Because I didn’t come here to die.”

  I'm actually almost done with this story. Writing the third last chapter right now, when I decided to post this.
