How sweet the Taste

With a world full of mysteries, secrets and lies, how certain are you that you aren't apart of something beautifully dangerous? Something incredibly supernatural? Anna was fairly certain from a young age that something just wasn't right.


31. The Chase

I wiped my mouth with the back of my hand, trying to stop the shaking. What happened? What is this stuff in front of me? Did I puke that up? I sit back on my knees, eyeing the nastiness in front of me. I looked around me to find that I wasn’t alone. I frowned, looking up at Niall.

“What happened?” I asked, scooting further away from the redness on the carpet before me. Niall frowned, squatting down beside me.

“You don’t remember?” He asks, pushing my hair out of my face. I shake my head, feeling my heart pick up speed. What’s going on?

“This can’t be good.” He mutters, looking over his shoulder at something. I follow his eyes and my jaw drops. I feel myself rush forward, scrambling across the room towards it.

“Oh my gosh, Niall. What happened?! She’s not breathing, you call the ambulance and I’ll try to revive her.” I say, quickly rolling to girl over onto her back. 

I clasp my hand together with one on top and one on bottom, interlocking my fingers before placing them in the center of her chest. I looked up to see Niall shake his head slowly, a sad look on his face.

“Why aren’t you calling someone?” I ask in a low voice, refusing to believe what he his leading me on to think.

“She’s gone, Anna. She can’t be helped.” He replied, a now blank look on his face.

Frowning, I look down at the girl. She was a beauty, that one. As I inspected her face, I began to notice where the blood was coming from. Two wounds were on each side of her neck, one larger than the other. Blood was crusted and clumped around the wounds from where it had dried. A long gash was down her arm with a set of small teeth prints still imprinted on her skin from where someone had bit her. I frowned, running my fingers over the indention. 

“Anna, come with me.” Niall said, breaking me out of my concentration. 

I looked up at him and actually looked at his face. He had dried blood around his mouth, running down his chin to stain his shirt. My breathing became hard as I connected the dots, my eyes watering. I feel like I’ve been crying all day, my eyes and cheeks feel sore and raw.

“You did this to her.” I accuse, moving away from her to stand on my feet. I felt a little wobbly at first but I willed myself to stay strong.

“Anna, let’s just get you cleaned up and in bed so you can rest.” Niall said cautiously, his voice calm.

“No.” I say, shaking my head at him.

“You’re going back in that room so you can sleep.” Niall said, his voice dropping notch as he took one step towards me.

“I’m not going back in there.” I say, trying to keep my voice from shaking. I take a step back towards the stairs. Can he go outside during the day? Duh, Anna, he showed up at your doorstep in the daylight. 

“I don’t care if I have to hunt you down and drag you back in there, you will obey me.” Niall threatens, taking another slow step towards me.

“Looks like it might just go down that way.” I respond, taking two back steps, smiling mentally as I realized that I’m almost to the stairs. I don’t know what I’m going to do after that, but I’m not going to just give in.

“Don’t make this any harder on your self than it already is. Just take my hand and let’s get you in the shower.” Niall said gently, holding out one of his hands.

“No, Niall! I’m so tired of being stuck in that room, normal humans come out during the day, they interact with other people, they actually do things.” I snap, refusing to be locked up in that room anymore. I take another step back, bringing me three steps from the top of the stairs.

“You’re not a normal human, Anna! Do you honestly not remember what happened less than twenty minutes ago?” Niall shouts at me, making me jump.

“What are you talking about? I don’t remember anything after you threw me into that wall.” I say, glaring at him.

“You fed.” He stated simply, his eyes darkening.

“Fed? What the hell does that mean? I fed? On what?” I ask, trying to make sense of everything he was throwing at me.

“Think about it, Anna. It’s not that hard and you are a smart girl. Just think.” He said, taking another step towards me, making me step back once more.

I frowned, my head hurting even more as I tried to process his words. Fed? I don’t remember eating anything. Why would I have food upstairs anyway? The only thing that was up there was that girl. I gasped as it all clicked into place. I fed on that girl. No way. I’m human. I don’t do things like that.

“So, the red puke upstairs...” I trailed off.

“Was your body rejecting her blood.” Niall filled in for me, a small smirk playing on his lips.

“Now that you know that, I do believe it’s bed time.” Niall said, coming towards me. 

I didn’t waste any time spinning around adn darting down the stairs as fast as my shaky legs would let me. Niall was taking his sweet time, knowing all to well that he will catch me eventually.

“There’s no use in running, Anna. Just come to me and I can make you forget all of this.” Niall bargained from a few steps behind me.

“I don’t think so.” I call back, trying to stay focused on my feet and where they go. The last thing I want to do is fall down these stairs.

“I’ll stop right now and give you fifteen seconds to run as far and as fast as you can.” Niall shouted down the stairs at me, stopping dead in his tracks. I quickened my pace, finally reaching the bottom of the stairs in a full blown run. 

My knees shook as they carried me through many doors and down strange hallways in just seconds, my heart beating fast and hard in my chest. I’m never going to out run him, so why am I trying? I can’t hear him counting down anymore which made me worry. Is my time up or can I just not hear him. I face the way I came, putting my back to the door I was at. If he comes for me, I want to see him. 

All is quiet, the only sound I can really hear is the pounding of my heart that is trying to make its way into my throat. I take slow, gentle steps backwards, wanting to still put distance between us but quietly. I felt a light breeze for a few seconds but brushed it off as my imagination playing tricks on me. 

My heart drops as I backed up into something hard, knowing that I’m not close enough for it to be the door. Without turning around, I reached behind me and felt what I had bumped into. I felt my heart nearly stop as my fingertips came into contact with cloth, knowing that the game was over. Niall has won, just like he said he would. I knew he would catch me but I didn’t want to go down without a fight. I take a deep breath to collect myself a little better before whirling around to face him.




Hey guys!! Who do you think caught her? What do you think will happen to her?? Why do you think she fed early? Do you think that her body is trying to tell her something with the vomiting up the blood?? Do you have any questions????!!
