Strange Days & Dark Nights
By The Original Pippie
It was a couple weeks later and Jenn, Ryan and Raab gave up search for
the two vampires. They figured that they were better off not knowing where Bam and Brandon were. And as hard as it was keeping
it to themselves, the three of them didn’t tell anyone the reason for their disappearance.
The roads of West
Chester were dark, and not many people were out, unless they were visiting local bars, for it was in the early hours of the
“Bran! Slow down!” Shouted Bam as Brandon ran ahead of him.
Bam was taking Brandon out
so they could feed. This was Brandon’s first time feeding since he fully transformed, so he had an uncontrollable craving
“Bran please wait for me, you don’t know what you’re doing!” Pleaded Bam as he
caught up to the rookie.
He grabbed hold of Brandon by the shoulders, stopping him in his tracks.
asshole!” He said with a slight chuckle.
"We don’t go running off willy-nilly to attack the first human
we see. I know you’re hungry, I’m hungry too. But there’s a right way to do this, and you running around
like an idiot is not it.”
“I’m sorry I… how were you able to control your urge to bite someone
the first time?”
“The same way I control any of my urges. I block it out, or talk myself out of it. You
can do the same thing.”
“I know… but as soon as I smelled that blood, I had to go find it and…”
Bam’s hand came across Brandon’s face.
“The next time you think like that, it won’t
be a slap across the face, got that?” He scolded.
follow me and do what I do. You’ve got a lot to learn.”
Brandon nodded his head, and let Bam play leader.
Ryan came up to Jenn at the bar and handed her a drink. She kept her head down and pouted, not wanting to have
any fun. She was lonely, missing Bam too much. Ryan took a drink of his beer and placed a hand on Jenn’s back.
so, are you going to cheer up or what?”
on, we know you miss Bam, we miss him too. But you’re going to have to face the fact that he’s probably not coming
“Don’t you think I know that?”
“Sorry Jenn but…”
mind Dunn. I just want to be alone.”
Jenn stood up and walked away from the abr. She crossed the room, not looking
where she was headed. She didn’t care, or apologize to anyone as she ran into them either.
Reaching the restroom
doors, she stopped dead in her tracks and looked up at the person who was just coming out of the men’s room. It took
her a second to realize that she wasn’t seeing things.
“Hi Jenn, long
time no see.” He smiled at her, barely hiding his fangs.
“I don’t believe this. You were…
“Dead? Well now I’m not.”
“Oh my God... then that means you’re
a…” She paused, not wanting to finish her sentence.
“So… is Bam with you?”
he’s in there.” He said while tilting his head towards the men’s room door behind him.
use the restroom?”
“Uh no… we were uh… um… how are you doing?” He said quickly
changing the subject.
“Fine I guess, considering the fact that I’m currently talking to someone who was
recently killed by a vampire…”
She looked at him closer and noticed a little bit of blood on the ends
of his fangs when he smiled.
“You… you were in there doing what I think you were doing, weren’t
you?” She asked with a trembling tone.
“Jenn it’s ok we…”
“No. No it’s
Jenn began to back away from him with fear all over her face. Brandon held his hands up to show her
that he wouldn’t be a threat to her, but she continued to back away.
“Dico don’t! Please I swear
I’ll scream if you try to do anything!”
“Jenn you don’t understand! We would never hurt you!”
The restroom door opened and Bam came out.
“Bran what’s going on?” He looked up and saw
“Oh Jenn I missed you so much.” Bam said as
he approached her, attempting to give her a hug.
“No! You stay away from me!” Tears began to forming her
“Jenn what’s the matter?” Asked Bam
“I don’t know you any more! Not since
you became this, this monster!”
“No, Jenn, it’s ok. Really. Please you can trust us.”
Bam I can’t. How could I trust you like this? Especially after you’ve just got done… with some poor victim.
The tears began to fall down her face.
“Jenn please… I know this whole
thing is scary, but this is me now. You have to accept it. I’m trying to accept it and live this way now. It’s
not easy especially without you with me. But I’m not some blood crazed monster. I’m not. Please just trust me
“It’s hard Bam… I’ve never been this scared of you before…” She sniffed
Bam slowly put his arms around her, and allowed her to cry into his chest.
“It’s ok Jenn. It’s
ok. I won’t hurt you. You know I’ve all ready made that promise and I’m not abut to break it.”
just leave you two kids alone.” Brandon said, receiving a nod of the head from Bam.
The couple stood there in
each other’s arms while Jen continued to softly cry. Bam tilted his head and licked some blood off of his fangs and
lips. Then he pressed his lips into the side of Jenn’s neck.
If he hadn’t of made his promise to her,
and if he hadn’t of just got done feeding, he would have bitten her right then. He would have turned her into a vampire
just so they would be able to be together, but he knew he wouldn’t actually go through with that decision if he could.
Instead he closed his eyes and took in the fresh scent of her hair and skin. He wanted to remember this feeling of
hooding onto her, because he had no idea when, or if, they would meet again.
Bam let his vividly imaginative scenes
fade away as he returned his focus to the black and white images on the television screen. At that moment in the old horror
movie, that they were watching, the vampire was rising from his coffin.
Jenn leaned in closer, pushing her head into
Bam’s chest. Bam’s arm rested around her, drawing her close to him as they sat on the couch. She rolled her eyes
up to his face.
“Are you seriously paying attention to
this movie right now?”
“Yeah I am. This movie’s a classic.”
a minute ago when I looked at you, you looked like you were off in la la land.” She smirked
“Ok I guess
I wasn’t paying that much attention to the movie.”
“What were you thinking about any way?”
“I uh… never mind. It’s stupid.”
“Ok then. You don’t have to tell me.”
Bam grinned at her, and then moved her onto her back. He held her hands behind her head and hovered above her so she
“There mow you’re right where I want you.”
“What are you doing?”
Bam leaned forward and kissed her on the neck. She giggled and tried to kick him away.
you’re not going anywhere.”
“What are you going to do to me?”
He just smirked and
took to her neck again, kissing and nibbling it some more. His nibbles became firmer and there he bit down as hard as he could,
causing her to scream in pain.
He came back up and looked at her neck. There were teeth marks deep enough to break
the skin, and tiny bit of Jenn’s blood ran out…
