I got on the plane holding my breath for the entire flight. The few shallow breaths I did take were horrifying. A flurry of scents hit my sensitive nose and it took all my strength to think of them as people instead of food. While I was on the plane, I thought about what I would do when I got to Jacksonville. I made plans. First, I would build up my resistance to human blood. After that, I would hunt down all the vampires that murdered innocents. I felt suddenly complete. It was as if I were meant to do this. I smiled, and the sun came out from behind the clouds. I quickly pulled down the window shad and covered my face with the hood of my sweatshirt. I looked around the plane in boredom and gasped silently when I saw a young man ahead of me with untidy bronze hair. Then I realized it could not be him. I would have caught his scent by now. The sadness and pain ripped through me. The sun disappeared behind the clouds, and it began to rain. I pulled up the shade of the window. We were approaching the airport, and the sun was behind a thick layer of clouds. I only had a carry on bag, so I did not need to wait around for my luggage. I looked around, and when I saw no one was looking, I used my vampire speed to escape the airport. When I was far enough away, I took a few deep breaths of air. The fresh air cleared my system and soothed the venom in the back of my throat. It was cloudy, and beginning to rain, so it was safe for me to be outside. I walked along the ocean, letting the waves break upon my ankles. I stood there, staring out at the horizon. I inhaled deeply, fighting the new monster in me. I felt so much calmer, feeling the cool ocean air in my lungs. I looked up, tranquility seeping though me along with the sadness. The clouds had thinned until there were just enough to keep my skin looking normal. I sighed. Those clouds reflected my soul. I could feel good at times, but there was always a thin film of pain. I kept breathing deeply, trying to control my inner monster.
I did this every day. I took time to practice and control the vampire in me by desensitizing myself to the scent of human blood. I hunted in the ocean, swimming far and fast, preying on sharks, dolphins, and other large fish. I had to practice not being seen. In one instance I surfaced briefly enough to see and hear two fishermen on a boat.
“I tell you it was a mermaid!” One of the men said urgently. He sounded drunk.
“Oh, don’t be stupid!” The other scolded. I giggled and they both looked spooked at the ghostly sound. I still had not gotten used to how musical and smooth my voice was. Even smoother than his.
Then one day, when I was standing on the beach at sunset, I caught the scent of a vampire. I ran towards it at a human pace, and I grew extremely angry at what I saw. A tiny human girl was sitting in the sand, humming to herself as she made a sand castle, when the vampire approached her. He had blood red eyes.
“Hey there, sweetheart. I just found a baby puppy and I need help finding it a home. Do you like puppies?” The man asked casually. He shook his brown hair into his eyes so he would not scare the girl away. Her eyes shone with excitement, and she shook her head emphatically, making her blonde pigtails bounce.
“Yes, yes, yes!” she squealed. The girl got up and followed the man to a dark street that I knew ended in an alley with no escape route. I sprinted imperceptibly behind them. When they reached the looming brick wall, the girl frowned. “Hey, there are no puppies back here!” the girl whined. The vampire turned on her, lifting her up by her tiny golden pigtails.
“Nope,” he said “I guess not.” he bared his glistening teeth at the girl I sprinted at him without thinking, putting my body between his and the girl’s.
“Don’t. You. Touch. Her.” I growled gritting my teeth. I had never been this close to a human before without holding my breath. I did not feel an urge to drink her blood, though. Her life was already at stake. I got angrier as the vampire just laughed. Clouds boiled blackly overhead emitting thunder and lightning, reflecting just what I felt. The man glared at me with his red eyes, and I glared right beck, not backing down. When he did not respond, I whipped my hand up to grip his throat with my newborn strength. The little girl shielded behind me whimpered in fear and pain as the man dropped her on the ground.
“Promise you will not hunt here again.” I snarled. The man gazed at me coolly. I tightened my grip.
“I promise.” He sighed. I slowly released him, and he charged me, knocking me to the ground.
“No!” I yelled as he put his lips to the child’s neck. I felt a rush of anger. The vampire fell to the ground, dead, as he was stuck by a huge bolt of lightning. I gaped as his body crumbled into ashes. The heat of the lightning must have killed him, I thought. My eyes flashed to the little girl as her tiny voice came out of nowhere.
“Are you my guardian angel?” She asked me. Her youthful innocence was just so cute that I had to smile. Her blue eyes got wide in her face. Before I knew what was happening, she had fun forward and hugged me as tight as she could around my legs. I smoothed her hair comfortingly. She sobbed with the trauma of what just happened to her. I picked her up and held her, sensing her pain. I began to hum my lullaby, and though it was painful, it made me happy to hear it. I was amazed at my voice, how well it sounded. The fact that I sounded so beautiful made me even happier. As I continued to get happier, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds, making my skin glitter. The little girl in my arms gasped as she looked at me.
“You are an angel.” The little girl whispered, awestruck. “You are too pretty, and you saved me. You have to be an angel.” The little girl seemed to be recovering, so I sat her down, and sat behind her. I kept humming softly, and the girl kept talking as I re-did her cute blonde pigtails. I was amazed at how well I could control the bloodlust; I had no urge whatsoever to kill this girl. I finished the girl’s hair and held her hand as I escorted her safely back to the beach. The little girl chatted about trivial things, making me smile. I wished it would get cloudy again, so that I could make sure the girl got back to her mother. Sure enough, the clouds rolled back over the sun, but they were fluffy white clouds, happy clouds instead of gray dreary clouds. I saw a frantic woman with the same blonde hair and blue eyes as the little girl. I released the little girl before the woman could see me. I hid behind the rickety wooden stars that led off the beach. The woman swept her daughter into a hug.
“Mommy, a mean man came and messed up my sand castle. Then he took me in a scary place and wanted to eat me. Then my guardian angel came and saved me! She was really pretty. Her skin sparkled like my Barbie glitter pony! She was very nice. She is right over-” The child trailed off as she pointed to the empty space where I had just been standing. She frowned disappointedly. “I guess she flew back up to heaven. Oh, well. Mommy, let’s go swimming!” Again, the girl made me smile with her childish innocence. I knew that she would be safe, and I realized that it could not be cloudy here forever. I grabbed my duffel bag from its hiding place and I ran away from the beach, looking for a new place to start my life. I knew that if I went to a place where the sun was scarcely out, I could find evil vampires there. I would protect the innocent.
