Dark Secrets

My name's Hope and I'm dead... Well, I'm supposed to be. I woke up buried and in a cemetery and to make matters worse it looks like I have a personal stalker as well who may be my only chance at answers. Let's just hope he doesn't kill me while we're at it.


11. Chapter 11

Things came into focus after who knows how long. The room was darkly lit, but I could see fine. The room didn't appear to have any windows, but there was a door on the other side of the room. A musky, damp scent hung in the air, I felt like I was choking on dust.

One lightbulb hung from a wire on the ceiling, which would cast enough light around the room to determine more about my surroundings. If I could find a light switch, I could maybe find a way out.

I began to stand, but something held me to the chair I was placed on. Zip ties held my wrists and ankles to the chair, which appeared to be plastic. I used all my strength to try and break the zip ties but it was no use, I was stuck.

I wanted to scream, I wanted to cry, but I couldn't. I wouldn't let fear get the best of me. That's what Al taught me to do.

Deep breaths, I told myself, deep breaths. Calm down, everything'll be fine. She can't hurt me now, I'm stronger now.

The door swung open and there she stood. Her hand reached out and flipped a switch, illumintating the room. And blinding me. That light was brighter than I thought.

"Don't kid yourself, Hope. Everything won't be fine. But trust me on this, you'll be dead by the end of today."

"Brittani." I growled. "What makes you so sure you can hurt me now?"

"Well, your thoughts for one thing. You're terrified."

"My thoughts?"

"Oh, just a little gift... Something I was born with." She shrugged, as if it wasn't a big deal.

"I'm not scared of you anymore." I said, hoping I sounded as confident as I needed that statement to be.

"Of course you aren't. That's why you were trying to calm yourself down earlier."


"What do you want?" I demanded.

"I just have a few questions. As long as you asnwer them the way you're supposed to, we won't have a problem and you won't even get that hurt."

"Fine. It's not like I have a choice."

"Good, because you don't." She laughed and crouched down to pick up something she'd put on the floor when she'd first gotten in the room. It was a weapon, I couldn't quite make out what it was, as I was still temporarily blinded by the light.

She walked over to me and I was almost tempted to lunge. But I restrained myself.

"Now, first question. What were you doing with Chase?" She demanded, eyes narrowing.

"Who?" I asked, pushing all memories of the Ajokoira from my head.

"I know that you know who he is. I saw you two together!" She yelled.

"I bumped into him on the street." I lied. "He offered to help me find my friend Al."

She seemed convinced. "What about in the alley though? Chase seemed pretty ticked off."

"I was teasing him. He didn't know it was a joke, and maybe I got a little to carried away and he got angry." I lied again, hoping it was convincing enough.

"Liar!" She screamed, and blood bloomed on my left forearm. The pain was a shock through my veins, suddenly, that was all I could feel, the unbearable pain blooming from my arm.

"I'm sorry..." I panted. "He told me not to tell anyone."

"Why would he do that?" She demanded, holding the bloody weapon in a menacing way. 

"I don't know..." I panted, gritting my teeth through the pain, it was already starting to heal. "He just said that I couldn't tell anyone no matter what." 

"If you're lying to me, you're gonna be dead before..." She trailed off and her eyes drifted to my arm where it was closing. "What are you doing?" She asked, her voice full of fear. "How are you... You're a vampire!" She exclaimed in horror. 

"Good job. You found out my secret." I growled. 

Her eyes were scanning the room, and she emptied her bag and didn't find what she needed. She backed away and stared at me in horror. 

"What's wrong with you." 

"I'm an Ajokoira. A vampire hunter, and you're a... And I don't have my tools..." She explained. 


The door burst open and the brown haired Ajokoira I knew to be Chase, appeared.
