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.

6. CHAPTER SIX

WhatWhWhate“Morning Lexi,” Will said and lifted an imaginary hat.

“Hey guys. How are you Jess?” Lexi asked with a smile.

“Fine, I - wait, isn’t that the guy you introduced us to the other day?” Jess asked and nodded towards Nate, who’d just come in the door with a bunch of books in his arms.

“Oh my god,” Lexi cried out and laid her head down on the table.

“Well hello Lexi, I didn’t know you went to this school, too!” He mentioned as he sat down besides her. Lexi lifted her head from the table and looked at him with her eyes pinched together.

“Really? So it’s just a coincidence that you suddenly starts on this school right after me?” Lexi asked suspiciously.

“Uh, Lex?” Lexi turned to Jess who was looking awkwardly between them; “He’s been going to this school since the start of the year.” Lexi mumbled an oh before turning back to him.

“How come I haven’t seen you before then?” Lexi asked, for once trying to make friendly conversation.

“Well, some of us take our responsibilities seriously and therefore have more important things than school,” he responded and looked at her. Lexi sent him an offended look, which made him roll his eyes.

 

It was almost insulting to Lexi how annoyingly good Nathaniel was at everything. Whatever question Mrs Godlock asked, he knew the answer. And the class wasn’t the only place he excelled; socially he was like Mother Theresa. Assuming she was popular, Lexi thought. She might not have been. To put it in another way, he was like a flame surrounded by mogs; better known as high school students.

Both guys and girls was gathering around him like was he the only umbrella on a rainy day. But jokes on him, Lexi would rather get soaked from the rain.

 

“Ready to go to lunch?” Jess asked as she caught up with Lexi in the hallway. Lexi nodded; “Oh yes, I am starving.”

Jess held the door, letting Lexi go in first.

“You know what, I think I’m just gonna go to the toilet,” Lexi mentioned and was already turning around. “Oh, ok, I’ll wait,” Jess offered looking after Lexi who was on her way through the door to the outside. “No, just go ahead,” she mentioned before the door closed behind her.

“Where’s Lexi going?” Will asked as he reached Jessica. Lexi hadn’t even seen him, even though she’d walked right past him. Jessica shook her head in confusion before going into the cafeteria. After getting their food they went back to their usual table and sat down. They’d barely been sitting for two minutes before Nathaniel sat down on their table. Not by it, on it.

“Where’s Lexi?”

“Well hello to you, too, Nathaniel,” Will greeted and looked annoyed at him.

“Yes. Hello. Now, where is she?” Nathaniels voice was hard, which didn’t seem to surprise the three girls who was gathered behind him, following him wherever he went.

“Well, since you asked, she took one look in the cafeteria, saw you, and rushed out,” Will answered, clearly trying to hurt him. It didn’t seem to work. Jessica shook his head.

“That’s not what happened. Even though she actually said she was starving until she saw you, and sort of.. Ran away,” Jessica realised.

“Why does she have to make everything so difficult?” Nathaniel asked in a frustrated voice.

“I know, right?””You should just forget about her,” the girls behind him contributed.

“If I could I would girls,” he sighed before standing up and leaving them. The girls whispered a few words before leaving too. Jessica looked after Nathaniel, who was heading out the cafeteria.

“Something is seriously off about Lexi and her friends,” Jessica decided.

 

“Hey,” Nathaniel said as he said down besides Lexi, who was leaning against the schools outside wall.

“What do you want?” Lexi sighed. Nate dived into his back and found a sandwich, which he waved in front of her eyes.

“Got you a gift.”

“You know, I’d really prefer jewellry,” Lexi said sarcastically. Nate took a deep breath; “Come on, your friends told me you were hungry, and since I’m the reason you left the cafeteria it’s only fair.”

“Don’t flatter yourself, I didn’t leave because of you, I just… Didn’t feel like being anywhere near you. But I am hungry, so I will take this,” she answered and pulled the sandwich out of Nathaniel’s hand. Before he had a chance to respond she’d already eaten half of it.

“They just said you were hungry, not that you were trying to fill an empty void inside you with food,” Nate snorted. Lexi looked annoyed at him, but too busy eating to answer.

“Seriously, how are you not fat yet?”

Lexi looked annoyed at him, chewed the food in her mouth and swallowed it before answering.

“I’m a hunter. Not a wannabe hunter like you, I actually am a hunter, so I need more food than you do,” she explained while taking another bite.

“About that,” Nate moved away from the wall so he could look at Lexi; “We’re fighting for the same thing here. We both just want to get rid of the demons, so why not work together?”

Lexi rolled her eyes; “They’re not demons. Well, only partially anyways. Do you even know anything about them?” Lexi was starting to get annoyed with him. She was not going to join a group of rude wannabe hunters, just so they could brag with having an actual hunter on their time. No way.

“Listen, thanks for the sandwich, but I’m just not much for teamwork,” Lexi explained while standing up and brushing her behind of.

“Really?” Nate asked; “Then what about Jessica? William? Who are they if not team members?” Lexi sighed.

“They’re not a part of this, and they’re not going to be. It’s too dangerous.”

 

Training with Weasly was hard. He was constantly convinced Lexi could do better, whether it was physical or mental.

“You can’t see vampires before they turn!” Lexi argued. She could feel the bond between her and Weasly growing stronger, even as they argued.

“No I can’t, but you can,” he explained. A good thing about Weasly was that he never lost his temper. At least not as far as Lexi could tell.

“I’m telling you, I can’t see them before they turn!” She protested again, while trying to sneak a glance at her phone.

“Lexi, will you please take this seriously?” Weasly asked and pulled the phone out of her hand. Lexi sighed; “What exactly is the rush? I have plenty of time to learn this.” Weasly smacked her phone down on the table, hard enough for Lexi to jump up.

“You might not! The Circle will test you at any given moment.”

“What do you mean, Weasly?” Lexi asked, confused to why the sudden rush. Weasly sighed.

“You were meant to be tested with your old Protector, but they didn’t have time. Now you have a new one and who’s to say they’ll wait? Even a month is too much to expect,” he explained. Lexi sat back down on the desk.

“How exactly will they test me?” she asked, only a little worried. Weasly shook his head; “I can’t possibly be sure. And even if, I couldn’t tell you.”

 

“Woah, what’s this?” Will asked, pulling what he saw as a big knife out of Lexi’s chest - where she stored her weapons.

“It’s a katana, but will, please, be careful with that, it’s dangerous,” Lexi responded, looking through her closet.

“I know I have them somewhere in here,” She mumbled, searching through everything.

“Yes!” she exclaimed and pulled out the shoes she’d been looking for. Will shook his head; “How you can have a weapons chest and be excited about shoes is beyond me.” Lexi did a shrug with her shoulders, looking at the cute little plateau shoes.

“Ready to go?” Lexi asked while putting them on. Will nodded and followed her down the stairs.

“Bye mom, we’re leaving,” Lexi mentioned as they walked through the small hallways, continuing outside without hearing what her mother had to say.

“Is Jessica meeting us there?” Lexi asked. Will nodded.

 

A football game was a big deal in Mid City High School. The tribunes were full of cheering fans, both of the Mavericks, which was their mascot, and whatever the other team was supposed to look like. The purple and white colors was piercing, and Lexi felt a little bad she wasn’t more supportive of the team. Even Jessica was wearing a Mid City Mavericks shirt, and no one cared less about sports than her.

A sudden wave of cheering appeared, and it seemed that one of the teams had scored. Or somehow gotten a point. Honestly Lexi knew nothing of sport, and the whole situation was a bit stressful. The many fans was too many for Lexi to concentrate on, the many colors, loud noises and the dark slowly setting in made it seem like a dangerous situation to Lexi.

“Lexi.”

Lexi turned around and saw Nathaniel, yet again seeking out Lexi, who sighed.

“What?” Lexi asked, already annoyed. Nate sighed; “Some of my team is here. I think you should meet them.” Lexi looked back at Will and Jess, who was both gesturing for Lexi to go with him. She nodded.

 

“Boys, this is Lexi. The hunter,” Nate announced to the six men standing in front of them.

“This is her? She’s of the five families?” One of the boys asked, clearly not impressed.

“Lexi, would a presentation be too much to ask for?” Nate asked her. “Yes,” she answered quickly before rolling her eyes; “Fine, no. What do you want me to do?”

Nate nodded to the boy who’d talked earlier. Lexi looked at him just in time to see him attack her. She felt the ground behind her, but didn’t pay attention to it. She threw him off of her.

He tried running up to her again, but this time she wasn’t surprised, and she knocked him down without effort.

“Yup. That’s her,” the boy agreed with a voice clearly telling Lexi had thrown him a little too hard.

Nate gave the poor fellow a hand so he could get up.

“What do you say, Lexi?” Lexi didn’t understand what he meant, and he must have been able to see that on her since he continues; “Do you want to work with us?”

“Oh!” Lexi said in a surprised voice, even though she know this had been coming.

“Well, not that I don’t want to work with a bunch of muscular boys,” she answered, as if she was going to flirt.

“So I could proof that I’m stronger than all you,” she added with a smug smile; “But I don’t see the point. I’m the hunter, I work alone,” she answered before turning around on her heels and returning to her friends.

“What did he want?” Will asked with a smile when she got back. She shook her head and looked at Jessica’s back to say that she wasn’t allowed to know.

“Hey, I’m like, super thirsty, Jessica, would you maybe get me a soda?” Will asked her. Jessica. looked confused at him; “Go get it yourself.”

“Right! I’ll go with you,” Lexi offered, following Will away from Jessica. As soon as they were out of hearing range he turned to Lexi; “What did he want?”

“He wanted me to work with him,” she replied, not sure how she felt about it.

“What did you say?” Will asked, obviously very interested in the matter.

“I said no! What else would I had said?” she asked. Will shot her in ‘what-the-hell-do-you-think’ look. Lexi rolled her eyes; “Fine, but why would I say yes?”

Will did a shrug of his shoulder. “I don’t know, maybe you could work together on stuff like killing monsters, saving innocent people’s lives,” Will suggested. Lexi sighed like a spoiled kid.

“But I can do that all on my own. Why would I need his help?” she snorted, seemingly offended by Will’s suggestion.

A loud wave of cheering made it’s was through the crowd, hitting both Will and Lexi.

“Maybe you don’t, but as I see it you have a responsibility, and you know, great power comes with great responsibility,” Wil quoted with an important look on his face. Lexi looked annoyed at him.

“You did not just quote Batman.”

 

“LEXI!” Maddie yelled from her room. Lexi could yell back, but getting up and going into her room would probably be easier. She sighed and closed the laptop in front of her before getting up.

“Yes?” she asked when she got to Maddie’s door.

“Can we order pizza?” Maddie looked up from her diary. The little note redbook she was always scribbling in, brought everywhere with her was in her hands.

“If you want pizza you can make it yourself,” Lexi answered her, ready to go back to her room.

“But Lexiiii - you know, if mom comes home on monday and finds out you haven't fed me,” Maddie warned her. Lexi looked annoyed at her. She crossed her arms across her chest and leaned against the doorway.

“Fine. Pizza it is then,” Lexi agreed and sent her a little smile, letting her know all was fine.

“But we’re walking to the pizza place, understood?” Maddie nodded, agreeing to the terms. As soon as they’d gotten their jacket’s they got going to the pizza place. Grimaldi’s was the one closest, and the walk took no more than 20 minutes.

Ordering a family pizza might seem a bit exaggerated, but Lexi was hungry, and so was Maddie.

“Lexi?” Lexi turned around. “Oh my god hi!” the girl in front of her hugged her like they were old friends. “Hi, uh, this is my sister Maddie,” Lexi introduced her, hoping the girl would introduce herself as well.

“Sure. But it’s like so good to see you!” the girl exclaimed before returning to her friends. Maddie leaned closer to Lexi.

“Who was that?” she whispered. Lexi shook her head; “I have no idea.”

 

“But you can’t very well say I have the wrong friends when you don’t have any,” Maddie pointed out, most of a pizza slice in her hand, the rest in her mouth.

“I have friends. You’ve met them,” Lexi argued. Maddie shot her a disbelieving look; “Yes. All two of them.”

“More than you have though,” Lexi noted, already on her second slice. Maddie shrugged.

“I’m just saying. Wouldn’t kill you to make some friends.”

“Enough about me - how’s things at your new school?” Lexi encouraged.

“I don’t know. Fine, I guess.” Lexi kept quiet, waiting for her to continue; that always did the trick.

“I mean, there’s this one thing…” She stopped herself and looked up, making it seem like she’d forgotten who she’d been talking to until that point. Lexi encouraged her with a nod.

“It’s the dance,” she admitted. “What about it?” Lexi asked her while taking another bite off her pizza. Maddie let the pizza splat down on the plate.

“I don’t have a date.”

“Well it’s only April. I’m sure no one has dates at this point. I don’t,” Lexi tried. Maddie leaned back in the chair and looked up at the ceiling; “No, I know, but they’re going to get them, and I’ll just be here. At home. Writing in my diary. And I can’t even write about prom, ‘cause I’m not going!” She cried out. As she reached for another slice of pizza Lexi closed the box.

“So you’re just going to sit here and feel sorry for yourself?” she asked her, like she was talking to a soldier. Maddie looked surprised up.

“You don’t get it! Someone has to ask me, not the other way around,” She cried out.

“Fine! I promise you, we’ll make sure someone asks you then. Let’s throw a party. Show people how popular and cool you are!” Lexi decided. Maddie laughed; “Seriously? You? You’ve never thrown a party in your life.”

“No. But you have.”
