It was night, the perfect time for crime. The darkness provided a cover, a safe blanket to wandering eyes, all except for me.
I walked down the sidewalk, listening to everyone’s thoughts. I didn’t hear anything yet, not yet…
I wandered past a drunk, sitting on the sidewalk; his home was a cardboard box.
What a pretty little girl… he thought as I walked by. I almost laughed. I, a pretty little girl? I was much too dangerous to be that, but he was drunk, so I spared him. He wasn’t dangerous, only disorientated.
I searched the streets once more. So far nothing had been out of place, not a single incident. I was getting thirstier and thirstier. Unless something happens soon, I will lose control and attack an innocent.
I saw another human, a girl this time. Her scent was delicious, and I almost gave myself to the temptation, but at the last minute I stopped myself.
Wow, he’s a looker. She smiled at me flirtatiously.
“Hey there,” she said coyly. I had to get out of there, otherwise I was going to attack this girl. I ran from her, the farther I got away from her, the more my mind cleared. I was able to control the monster in me, and I started to walk again. I heard the girl shout after me. Each shout got fainter and fainter, then it was gone.
Then I heard it, I heard the scream of help. I rushed toward the sound, I could almost taste the blood of the victim I was about to kill.
Then I turned the corner, and I saw what I had been waiting for all night.
An innocent woman was in the alley, and around her three guys were converging toward her, trapping her.
“Please, I beg of you, you can take all my money, just don’t kill me!” Her voice wavered from her fear.
One of them chuckled; the sound was music to my ears.
“Nonsense, my dear lady. If I simply take your money, then the thrill of the kill is gone.”
The other gang members laughed, and they took a step closer to her.
In a flash I was behind the one who spoke. He hadn’t even noticed I was behind him.
“Not so fast.” I whispered him his ear, then I broke his neck with a simple movement of my fingers. The other gang members stared at me in shock. I growled at them.
Who is this stupid little kid? The larger one smiled at me.
“Oh, we did get lucky today, a woman and a little kid to kill, oh yes.”
He stepped closer to me, then he gasped.
Where’d he go?
“Right behind you.” I whispered, and snapped his neck in half.
When I looked around for the third one, he was gone. I was going to have to hunt him down too. If word gets out of a killer of killers, it might blow my cover.
I glared at the woman, she was cowering in fear.
Who is this kid? How is he so fast?
“Go!” I shouted at her. I was about to lose it. The delicious blood was pouring out of the guy’s neck. I felt the monster in me stir at the scent.
Only one more kill, it won’t be that bad. The monster in me encouraged me to kill the woman too. I stepped, advancing on her. I imagined snapping her neck too, then I stopped myself.
I couldn’t do it. If I killed this innocent, I would be a real monster. I only kill the ones who are only a little more human than me.
She didn’t move; still shaking with fear.
What? He’s going to kill me too?
“Go! Before the other one comes back!” I shouted at her.
She quickly ran from the spot.
He spared me! Oh thank you God! You have sent me my guardian angel, and he has protected me!
I laughed at her thoughts. I was no angel, I was the complete opposite. I had almost come this close to killing her as well.
Then when I was sure she was gone, I stepped over the nearest corpse; blood covered the body. The scent filled my nose.
Then I leaned down low, and bit his neck.
