Chapter 1

It was a rather chilly summer night; all was quiet except for the sound of the crickets chirping loudly. Ana lay sleeping peacefully under the covers of her bed. The light from the street lamp glistened through the half opened windows casting shadows across the wall. A dark figure suddenly appeared in her room, standing at the foot of her bed. It slowly walked over and knelt beside her bed; staring at her, admiring her beauty. Reaching his cold hand out he gently touched it to her soft cheek. She moved slightly but did not wake up. He gave a little smile revealing his rather sharp fangs. Finally Cayden stood up and gently kissed her on the forehead.
Just as he was about to leave another figure appeared in the room, it was another vampire. Both stood frozen for a second, just staring at each other with cold eyes.
" What are you doing here David?" Cayden hissed through his clenched teeth.
" I thought I would just stop by to have a little midnight snack," David said as he walked closer to where Ana lay sleeping. But before he could get any closer Cayden was over there ready to fight. In this fight David had a little bit of an advantage; for he was eighteen and Cayden was sixteen. David swung a punch sending Cayden backwards and knocking over a lamp.
Ana suddenly woke up, startled by the crash. She looked over and saw the two figures fighting on the ground. She wanted to scream but when she opened her mouth nothing came out. She was to frightened to move, so she just sat there watching in horror as the two wrestled on the ground.
Then she noticed that the younger one looked like her friend Cayden.
"Oh my gosh! Cayden!" she practically screamed. He heard her but was too busy trying not to get knocked out to answer her. David got to his feet and headed towards Ana once again. Cayden pushed him back onto the ground, but David locked his hands tightly around Cayden's neck. He struggled to free himself but there was no hope.
Then unexpectedly Ana was hovering over them and smashed a vase over David's head. "Did I really just do that?" she thought to herself while heading towards her bedroom door. Just as she was reaching for the handle David slammed into her sending her to the ground, she felt a sharp pain in her stomach. Then she saw him pull a knife out of his pocket as he headed toward her. He bent down and slashed it across her right cheek. As the blood trickled down her cheek he licked it with a satisfying look on his face. " Hmm. I think it's time for my midnight snack now." He said.
She could see the hunger for blood in his eyes. She desperately looked over at Cayden for help but he just lay slumped over against the wall. Ana crawled backwards until she came against the wall and there was nowhere left to go. He pulled her up from off the ground by her neck. Chills ran through her body as she felt his breath against her neck. "Please don't" she pleaded with him frantically as she tried to squirm away. "I'm going to die" she thought to herself as she began to feel more and more helpless in his grip.
Just as he drew his fangs toward her neck Cayden crept up behind him and punched him in the stomach. He let go of Ana and she fell to the ground.
" Get the hell out of here!" Cayden screamed to David clenching his fists tightly.
" Oh I am, but don't worry because you haven't seen the last of me" he said with an evil smirk on his face, then disappearing into thin air.
Cayden went over to where Ana lay on the floor. " How could I let this happen to her." He thought to himself. He carefully picked her up into his arms and flew out of the window. He knew it was safe to take her since her parents were out of town for the week.
