I awoke in the middle of the forest.
Cold. Afraid. Alone. Hungry.
I stood up wondering where I was. Everything hurt. My eyes were in pain due to vividness of my surrounding. My ears were ringing because they picked up every single noise.
I tried to recall what I was doing before this. I was hiking and I also remembered a stranger with odd black eyes. His eyes were onyx, cold, reserved, but full of some emotion I didn’t know. He crept up behind me. Startled, I quickly turned around only to find myself in a compromising position with him. He leaned down to my neck as if he was going to kiss me, brushing his cold nose on the base on my neck.
I tried to run but his arms were like iron bars keeping me in place, placating my inhalations. I felt his lips touch my neck and I shivered; I felt a slight pain that quickly evolved to feel a sensation of fire. Oh God, the pain….. I cringed; it was too painful to even think about.
I was walking now, trying to find someone. I felt au known feeling gnawing at my insides, hunger. I looked around, I desperately wanted to find food, it was then I felt it, or rather didn’t. My heart wasn’t beating. Its gentle thumps were gone. If it wasn’t beating, how exactly was I alive? It hit me then; I was not human, I grabbed the food in my backpack only to throw it back in; it smelled absolutely horrifying. What am I? What do I need?
I looked down at my hands, shocked to find that were almost translucent white. Out of my peripheral vision, I saw a deer out of the corner of my eye. Nothing ever looked as delicious as that animal and, before I knew it, I was on top of it, swiftly breaking its delicate neck, the blood feeling warm and sweet as it ran down my ever grateful throat.
I was full by the time I realized what I had done. I got up, backing away slowly, appalled at what I had done. Had I gone crazy? I knew then that something was wrong, I had just drunk the blood of deer. If anything, I was now sure that I was not human.
I walked toward my backpack and took out my mirror from the emergency survival kit. I gasped, I couldn’t help it, I was beautiful. My reflection was surely of me, but I looked so different; my skin was flawless, resembling a porcelain doll, my eyes were a deep golden color with a hint of red. My hair was a chocolate brown color that looked so soft and curled at its edges. What had I become?
I couldn’t figure it out and the monster in my chest was rumbling, begging for more food. I continued to hunt, receiving intensely color butterscotch eyes in return, wondering what I was going to do next.
