The sun was rising on Sunday morning when I finally climbed back into my bedroom. I carefully and quietly shut the window sighing with relief; finally making it home. When I turned around to get into bed, I glimpsed my father sitting on my bed glaring at me.
“Were have you been young lady?” He yelled. An awkward silence descended in the room as I contemplated on what to tell him. “I asked you a question Meka, were have you been?” he screamed with growing frustration. I continued to stare silently back at him. “Don’t give me that look young lady, I was sick half the night with worry, I was just about to call the police.” While I sat on the chair near my computer, my shoulders slumped with despair-what am I going to tell him, I thought Dad I was at a club in downtown Minneapolis called club dead. Only, I didn’t realize the club was filled with dead people. Savannah thought it would be a great idea to go to this mysterious club to end my birth night. Only, something did end Savannah’s life. I know this sounds crazy, but when I came back from the clubs bathroom I saw Savannah leave with a guy into the back alley. I followed to keep her safe, but when I got there she was dead on the floor and he was leaning over her. He had fangs and her blood was smeared and dripping all over his mouth.When he saw me he tried to kill me, but I tried to fight him off then I did something to make him flee. I don’t really know how I won, but I remember being on the floor after he punched me in the stomach. I saw a look of pure huger in his eyes and I realized he was going to rip out my throat. I felt his breath near my face and his fangs graze my neck. The horror of the moment caused my hands to glow and I pushed him away. He screamed in agony as my hands lit up the alley; it was so bright as if the sun’s rays were shooting out of my hands. Oh God, that sounds nuts even to me and I was there; he would surely lock me up. I shivered in fear as I finally comprehended my situation. I saw a vampire! My best friend is dead and her killer will probably come after me. But that wasn’t the worst thing,what if she wasn’t dead? This is my first time meeting a vamp, so for all I know one bite could turn a human.Then there's the issue of my hands light up likes its Fourth of July. I can’t believe I did that. Could it be possible? But it can’t be because I know I wasn’t born with freakish superhero powers, yet I’m alive.
My dad’s voice shook me from my memories.
“Are you listening to me Meka? You are grounded for a month with no phone, computer, TV and socializing. Do you understand me?” I nodded, accepting my jail time. “Now you have two hours to sleep then I’ll drop you off at school, but I expect you home by two thirty pm.’ He stood and stared at me as if I grew another head.
“Um…” I said lamely. Shaking his head he grumbled under his breath and left the room. When I finally climbed into bed needlessly did I know how much my life would change forever.
When I woke up I showered and dressed in my usual black tee-shirt and black sweat pants with a yellow blaze logo. I had forty five minutes to spare, but I didn’t think I could live through another lecture from my dad. Yet if I didn’t go down stairs I would never know if they found Savannah’s body, sighing in defeat I went down stairs. We live in a two bedroom house in Savage, Minnesota. For Four years now it’s been just us two, when my mom was alive our house was filled with the aroma of baked sweets like chocolate cookies, vanilla cake and brownies. Laughter and joy filled our home until the day she died; my dad hasn’t been the same. All the pictures of our family vacation’s that were hanging on the wall were removed. All of my childhood memories were locked in this empty house with nothing to remind me of her. I shook my head to clear the painful memories away. I sat down on the couch and turned on the TV to five eyewitness news hoping to hear something about Savanna. After weather and they still didn’t mention her and I decided to give up. Just when I left the room I heard it, “There was a dead body found at Club dead, a popular club in downtown Minneapolis. Savannah McDonald’s is a sixteen year old junior at Burnsville high school. She was found in an alley face down outside the club with two puncture wounds.”
“Have the police linked this to last three killings in the other clubs, Diana?” questioned Cyndy Brucato.
“They haven’t commented, but they will make an official statement tomorrow morning after they receive the coroner’s report; however the FBI’s behavior analysis team has been brought in. A witness stated that she saw Savannah leave with a young man and never returned, it has also been stated that she hadn’t come to the club alone.”
“Thank you Diana, please kee…” Tuning out the rest of the broadcast I contemplated if I should leave town. But where would I go? Yet I couldn’t stay because the police and the FBI knew about me and sooner then later they would find me if that vampire didn’t already. I got up and turned to toward the living room exit, but my dad was leaning against the door frame with a furious frown.
“Meka weren’t you with Savannah last night”, he asked quietly. I couldn’t lie to him and he won’t believe the true, so I stayed silent. “Tameka answer me, were you at the club with Savannah”?
“Yes” I stated with a small voice. He sighed while walking toward the couch looking as if he had aged a decade in mere seconds.
“Tell me what happened?” He demanded.
