Dark Form - Chapter 13

 After Lizzie left, I wasn’t sure what to do. 
I sat there hyperventilating; unable to believe that I could have possibly been the cause of such a heinous crime. 
 Nervous, scared energy began to fill me so much that I had to find something to do with myself…I got up and started pacing the room.
 I didn’t know what the protocol was for a situation like mine. 
 Do I turn myself in? Or wait for the police to find me?  
 I gave some serious thought to reporting myself.  I even dialed the police station…
 …but as soon as someone answered, I hurried and ended the call. 
 I knew that if my secret was out…it would completely ruin my already strained relationship with Lizzie. She was my only friend.
 But then I realized that it was already over.  I couldn’t continue to face her…knowing what I might have done to her husband. 
 I had to be smart about this whole thing.  Getting myself arrested didn’t seem like the best way to solve anything. Even if I was locked away…I’d still be a danger to everyone around me. 
 My bigger issue was how to keep what happened to Dray from ever happening again. I needed to find an alternate food source to keep my dark side at bay.  I pulled out the book that I had taken from the library.
 I scoured the pages looking for any and everything that could help me. 
 It took a while, but I eventually stumbled upon something that gave me hope…I could possibly be cured. 

The book didn’t go into much detail, but it gave me another direction that I could go in for further research.
There were two things that I needed to do… the first was to search online and order as many books as I could find about the vampire virus. I’d even pay for overnight delivery to get them as quickly as possible.
 The second thing I needed to do was to settle my mind and try to find out for sure if I was actually the one that murdered my best friend’s husband. 
 I knew that it was risky, but I waited until nightfall, retraced my steps from the night before and returned to the alley.
 For all I knew…the police could still be watching the area, but I hoped that going back to the alley would help to jar my memory on what happened that night. 
 I looked around, but there was no evidence to show that the area had ever even been a crime scene. I expected to see crime scene tape…police markers – anything to indicate that a life had been lost. I began to think that maybe this was the wrong alley.
 My thoughts were interrupted by a voice behind me, “Miss…is everything okay?”

My heart almost completely stopped beating; thinking that it was a police officer behind me. Surely he’d wonder why I was standing there staring down a dark alley.
 My breathing came in short ragged successions as I  attempted to gather myself in order to reply. “I…I…I’m fine, thanks.”

The guy stepped forward. “Don’t you know that it’s dangerous to walk down dark side streets alone at night?”
 I finally figured that this wasn’t a police officer. I was now a bit irritated by his intrusion. “How do you know that I’m not the threat?”

“Maybe you are, but is it cool if I walk with you anyway? You know…just to make sure you stay safe?”
 I couldn’t believe that this guy was able to sneak up on me. I was sort of missing my ability to hear heartbeats.  I wanted him to leave me the hell alone, so I turned around to tell him that in a not-so-nice way, “Why the hell do you –” 
 The last word got lost somewhere between my vocal cords and my mouth after I turned around and got a good look at him.
He kept talking…confirming my worst nightmare. “I didn’t mean to bother you miss.  It’s just…I heard some dude got murdered in this alley last night.”

Dark Form - Chapter 12

 I woke up from a very deep sleep when I heard someone pounding on my door.
 I was surprised to find myself in bed.  I didn’t even remember coming home last night.
The pounding continued…further pulling me away from the sleep world and making me much more aware that my mouth tasted strange…like it was full of pennies. 
 I would have loved to take a moment to brush my teeth first, but the pounding seemed urgent.  When I answered the door…I saw Lizzie standing there holding Dray Jr.  Both of them were still in their pajamas.
 Lizzie’s voice was strange and shaky…like she was desperately trying to hold it together. “I’m so sorry to wake you this morning Val.  I just…I just didn’t know where else to go.”

Lizzie’s appearance matched her voice. She looked tired and worn down…like she had spent some time crying.
“What’s wrong? What happened Lizzie?”

“It’s Dray.  They found him this morning…” Lizzie paused to catch a sob that threatened to come through as she spoke.
 She finally continued… “He’s dead Val.”

My stomach sank.  I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
 My heart was pounding in my throat, but I still managed to speak. “Oh my God!  What happened?”
 “I…uh…the police came to my door this morning. They said they found him in an alley.”

I almost stopped breathing, but managed to squeeze out a few words through the few breaths I did manage to take… “An alley?”
 “You’d better come in,” I turned to lead Lizzie and Dray Jr. inside.  I needed those few moments to gather my thoughts. 
 Lizzie didn’t hesitate.  She needed to tell me what happened as much as I needed to hear it.  It had to be a coincidence that they found Dray in an alley. 
 Lizzie put Dray Jr. down next to the couch and walked over to sit down.
 I was feeling anxious to hear more, but I allowed her some time to calm down and stop crying.  “I just can’t believe it!  One moment he was here…and now…now he’s gone!” Lizzie’s body heaved as she tried to catch her breath between the sobs.
 “Tell me everything the cops told you,” I said after a sufficient amount of time passed. 

Lizzie closed her eyes and repeated what the cops told her…
 “They found him in an alley between a couple of old warehouses…” 
 Lizzie inhaled and exhaled, then continued, “…they received a 911 call after a worker discovered his body while emptying the trash.”
 I interrupted briefly… “How can they be sure it was him?”

“They found his wallet. They used the address on his ID to find where he lived.”
 Lizzie eyes filled with tears all over again.  ““They told me that they’ve been investigating the scene all morning. Val!  They say that he was murdered!”

“Oh my God Lizzie!”
 “He’d lost a lot of blood…bu…but, they couldn’t find any at the crime scene.”

“They told you that?”
 “No…I…I read it in the detective’s notes when she wasn’t looking,” Lizzie stopped for a moment as a new wave of sobs took over. 
 In a voice barely audible, she asked the one question that threatened to break me… “Val…who would do something like this?” 
 I sucked in my breath…and wondered to myself if it was me.  Could I have killed Dray last night? 
 Even thinking about the possibility made me incredibly anxious and scared. It was too much…way too much of a coincidence that my best friend’s husband was murdered in an alley…the same night that I finally lost control…also in an alley. “Oh my God Lizzie! This whole thing is crazy!”

Lizzie seemed a bit startled by my sudden outburst of emotion. “You okay?”
 I knew that I had to quickly get myself together. There was no way I would be able to explain to Lizzie that I just so happened to be in an alley last night.  I had to play it off. “I’m fine…I just can’t believe this is happening. I can’t believe he’s gone Lizzie.”
 Lizzie took a deep breath, “I…uh, I have to go. I’m supposed to go and officially identify the body.  But…I…I don’t know if I can see him that way Val.”
 Lizzie stood up to leave.  I got up and walked over to her.

“Do you need me to help with anything?”

“No…I don’t want to put any of this on you. You’re still working on getting well. I called my family.  My sister is coming to help out with Dray Jr.”
 I was relieved, but I tried hard not to show it. I put my arms around Lizzie and did my best to offer my reassurance…”Everything will be okay.  You’ll get through this…I promise.”
 “Thank you, Val.”

“If you need anything…anything at all, please let me know.”
 Lizzie looked broken all over again.  I wished there was more I could do for her, but I needed time to sort out my own thoughts.

“Thanks…I…we’d better go.”
 Lizzie and Dray Jr. headed to the door silently…too silent.  At that moment, I realized something very important…
 I couldn’t hear their heartbeats and I didn’t smell their blood the entire time they were here.
 My mind recalled some information in one of the chapters in the book that I took from the library and just thinking about it made me sick to my stomach…
‘The ability to hear and smell blood begins to fade once a person with the vampire virus gets their first taste of human blood.’
