“How about we go biking?” Jacob asked me. We were sitting on the couch in his too small living room trying to figure out what to do. Every day since the incident on the beach I would go over Jacob’s house, we would sit on the couch for about twenty minutes deciding what to do. Usually we would go ride our motorcycles or go hiking. I had gotten a lot better at maneuvering over the logs and roots that used to trip me.
“Why don’t we go hiking?” I really didn’t feel like risking my life today, not that hiking doesn’t constitute as a risk.
“We went hiking yesterday, besides; we’ve been to every trail that’s around here. I don’t really feel like going on one of those trails again.”
“Well, I was thinking about this place I’ve been before. It’s this little meadow that I, um, found while hiking once.” I tried not to think about how I ended up finding that meadow. Even with my personal sun right next to me the gaping hole in my chest was threatening to open again.
“So we’ll go there. Where is it?”
“Umm, well that’s the tough part; I wasn’t really on a trail, so I don’t know if I can find it again.”
“That’s fine. We’ll find it.” He said while reaching into the drawer in the end table. He pulled out a map, compass, ruler, and some markers. I was kinda surprised that he believed me about not using a trail, but I was relieved, I really wasn’t up for explaining. “Now, Where did you start you start.” I pointed to the spot on the map and showed him the direction I went. Within the next half hour he had drawn many lines on the map. “Alright, let’s go.” He said as he got up from where he was laying and headed out the door.
About four hours later we were making our way through the woods when Jacob stopped suddenly in front of me causing me to walk into him and fall to the ground. My legs twisted with his bringing him down on top of me. I gasped for breath as I felt all his weight on me. “Oh, sorry,” he said while climbing off of me.
“Why the sudden stop?” I stood and carefully wiped off the damp leaves and dirt that was now encrusted on my pants.
“I smelled someone, well more like something” I stared at his disgusted face and guessed what he smelled before he said it. A vampire.
“Who is it?” I asked as I looked around tentatively. I knew I wouldn’t be able to see anyone, but that didn’t stop me from looking.
“I don’t know. I didn’t recognize the scent. Here, sit down, I’ll be back in a minute, I’m just going to go call Sam to help. Maybe he’ll know it.” He led me over to an old tree stump then ran off into the woods. I sat there for a few seconds before the situation set in. Then I panicked. I jumped up off the stump and started looking around anxiously. I started walking in the direction Jacob went, hoping I would find him. Instead of finding Jacob, I found a meadow, but not just any meadow, my meadow, our meadow. It was the same shape around and the same size, but there weren’t any flowers, and there wasn’t a sun, just the same boring gray clouds that covered the sky everyday. As I noticed a shape that was at the other end of the meadow, I realized that there was in fact, another thing that was the same about this meadow. It still had a vampire.
I tried to turn to run, but my legs weren’t responding. It was as if I was rooted to the ground. I couldn’t move. I tried to scream for Jacob, but no sound came out. The figure took a step forward and was suddenly standing ten feet in front of me. “Laurent” It came out as a whisper, but I was sure he heard me.
