Vampires arrive in Apotasy
Permalink

A week ago, something happened to Tabitha and Ezekiel. They stumbled through a mirror in an old haunted house ride, and suddenly... they were in the same place. More or less. Stupid, smelly city full of humans. But without any trace of their family. Or any of the other get of Lilith. 

On the one hand, this means they might never see their family or kind again. That sucks. On the other, more food for the two of them.

Hence why Zeke is stalking through the streets of suburbia around midnight, leaping through moonlight into shadows, sniffing for humans to pick off.

He catches scent of someone sickly. Good. If he does this right, he can make it look natural.

He creeps towards the suburban house. The bedroom window is unlocked, and the little girl within is alseep. Also good.

He climbs onto her bed and crawls towards her neck...

Her eyes snap open. 

The first words out of her mouth are "You're not Justin."

The moon-white, raven haired, naked seven year old crouching on the girl's bedsheets nods slowly.

"...Nope."

Permalink

"Who are you? Why are you here?"

Permalink

"Um..." 

Zeke crosses his legs. "I'm the check up-fairy. You're sick, right?"

Permalink

She sighs. "Yeah. Always."

Permalink

"That's not nice. What's wrong with you?"

Permalink

"Dunno. I see a lot of doctors and they can't agree on a diagnosis or anything. I'm just always tired and weak and sometimes I cough a lot and sometimes I throw up and it gets worse if I try to do a lot of things."

Permalink

Zeke sniffs her. "Smells like you eat a lot of crap. You should stop. You'll feel better."

Permalink

"Your blood's full of poison. Why are you taking poison?" 

Another sniff. "Seriously, why all the medicines? You're fine."

Permalink

"I'm not fine. Some days I can't even get out of bed. Some days I can't even want to."

Permalink

"Because you're taking loads of medicines you don't need. Trust me, I've smelt way more messed up people than you. Your heart's fine, your lungs sound okay. It's just... your blood's full of chemicals."

Permalink

She frowns uncertainly. "Mommy says I'd be worse without the medicine."

Permalink

"Your mommy doesn't sound very bright."

Permalink

"Mommy's smart! Mommy understands everything the doctors say every time I go. Daddy says when I was a baby, before I was sick all the time, that she had an important job that only smart people can do."

Permalink

A thought occurs to Zeke. He and his twin are alone on this world, as far as they can tell. This world doesn't know Lilith's blood. The seeds inside him and his sister won't be ripe for years. But their blood can still change...

"Okay, okay, I believe ya. Tell you what. What if I made you all better?"

Permalink

"You can do that?"

Permalink

"Yeah. Uh, I sorta lied? I'm not a fairy, those are different. I'm a vampire."

Permalink

"...If you turn me into a vampire does that mean I won't grow up. I don't wanna be eight forever."

Permalink

"That's crap humans tell each other to make themselves feel better. We grow up! Just slower." He gestures down at himself. "I'm like... not thirty yet? But around that. And we can make babies, thank you very much. We do it a lot! And we can play in the sun, and eat food, and everything else! Holy water sucks, though."

Permalink

"Oh, I don't go to church anyways, that part's okay." She nibbles her lip. "If vampires grow up lots slower and I become a vampire we have to turn Justin too. He's my friend."

Permalink

"Sure! We're sort of low on numbers right now anyway. I can get him now if you can give me an address or whatever."

Permalink

She gives him an address, "And tell him Eliza sent you so he won't think you're some random kidnapper or something."

Permalink

"Sure thing!" 

Zeke bounds out the window, following the street numbers till he finds Justin's house. He locates a window with an appropriate looking child sleeping behind it, and taps on the window.

Permalink

The child wakes up, looks around, sees Ezekiel, and opens the window.
