Darkness consumed over the large city of Wilmington, Delaware as the loud sound of cars could be heard, the city's lights lit brightly with endless people walking the streets. It was the very beginning of June, a heatwave beginning to settle in which would last for quite awhile, the night being the only key to stay cool outside for a few hours. A light rain fell from the darkened sky which would only bring humidity once the raindrops stopped, making the heatwave even more unbearable.
A girl with long red hair walked the darkened city streets, having just left the dance studio she was a student at and began to walk home to her apartment only three blocks away. The young girl was only in her early twenties and had high hopes for a dancing career, only to have those dreams shattered in a few moments. She was followed by a young man who looked to be nineteen or twenty, only he was a lot older than he looked.
The young man had blonde hair and piercing blue eyes, having an average figure and towering a little over six-foot. He was very handsome, attracting girls to him like a moth to a warm light. The young man, his name being Caleb Anderson, stalked the red headed girl from a good distance away, looking as though he were simply walking in the same direction as her. Caleb was hungry, the scent of this girl's blood causing his mouth to water. A darkened alley was beginning to make itself known as Caleb walked a little faster, a smile on his face.
"Excuse me!" Caleb called out, the girl turning her head and stopped walking as the two were now right in front of the alleyway. "Do you happen to have the time? My watch is broken and I left my phone at home."
"Yeah sure." The red headed girl responded, her emerald colored eyes looking down at a small watch wrapped around her wrist. "It's almost 10pm."
"Thank you." Caleb responded with a charming smile, looking at his surroundings. There were almost no civilians outside at this time where Caleb and the girl stood, mainly because there was a murder scene a block away which everyone was hovering over.
"You're welcome." The girl responded, bringing Caleb to look back over to her. He suddenly grabbed her which took her off guard, shoving her into the alley where she fell hard on the cold ground. Before she could even think about screaming however, Caleb quickly closed in the space between the two like a bullet and grabbed her by the neck, lifting the girl up and pinned her against the wall. With his other hand Caleb covered her mouth and took away the hand which had her by the neck, a set of sharp fangs suddenly appearing where his upper canine teeth were.
Caleb sank his fangs deep into her neck and allowed her warm blood to travel down his throat, his hunger being satisfied a few moments later when he had sucked the life out of her. The girl's cold, motionless body fell to the ground like a rag doll, her red hair covering her pretty face as Caleb wiped away a small trickle of blood from his mouth.
One Month Later...
Nineteen year old Rosina Blackwell sat in her 1967 black Impala which she bought because of her favorite television show and waited for the red traffic light to turn green, the brunette on her way to her new home. Her, her three year old daughter Allison Blackwell and her parents just moved to Wilmington, Delaware and lived right outside the city, having moved from northern New Jersey. The father of Rosina's child only sends Child Support checks and has no interest in actually taking care of his own daughter, which was how Rosina was able to move out of state so easily with her. Rosina looked behind her towards the backseat where Allison was fast asleep in her pink car-seat, a smile coming onto Rosina's face.
Rosina had dark brown hair that went a few inches passed her shoulders, dark brown eyes and sun kissed skin. She had a slender body with natural curves, the young woman being very beautiful and stood at only 5'3. Her daughter had jet black hair however from her father and amber colored eyes, though her facial features and sun kissed skin she got from her mother. Rosina turned back around just as the traffic light turned green and began to drive again, driving on a busy road where there were cars constantly driving. She noticed a large graveyard to her right side as she drove passed it, memories flooding back to her which she forced away.
Her and her family needed a new start in life, but Rosina had her doubts. Within the past seven years nine people who she was very close to had all died, two of them dying very recently. How was this new start going to be better? So many people that Rosina loved had died, which was always going to stay with her no matter where she moved to. How was a new house in an entirely new state going to help? Rosina swore to herself though that she would give it a chance, especially for her three year old daughter sleeping in the back seat.
"We're almost there." Rosina said to herself as she stopped at another red light, the street she would have to make a left on being only a few feet away from the traffic light. Her family had already settled into the house a couple of days ago and moved everything in while Rosina and Allison stayed in their old house in New Jersey, only because of the massive heatwave Wilmington was under right now. They knew it would be too difficult to try and set up the house with Allison there since she was only three, so Rosina and her parents came up with a plan that Rosina and Allison stayed in New Jersey for a few days while her parents set up the new house.
"Mommy?" Allison asked sleepily as she slowly opened her eyes, bringing Rosina to turn around.
"We're almost at the house." Rosina said, turning back around and made the left turn once the traffic light turned green. Rosina traveled down the new street of Westchester Avenue where her new house would await her only six blocks away, the car coming to a stop in front of a white house with a fenced-in backyard. From the outside it looked as though it were a one-story house, but there was a large attic that had been transformed into a bedroom and even had a full bathroom, which was now Rosina's and Allison's room.
"Hey!" Rosina's mother called out as she walked outside of the house, her name being Hanna. Hanna was beautiful with curly brown hair and dark eyes, standing at 5'5 with a slender body as well. Rosina's father walked out of the house right after Hanna, his name being Bill. Bill had dirty blonde hair and light brown eyes, standing at 6'4 with a few extra pounds to him.
"Hey guys." Rosina said happily as she got out of the car, opening the back and getting Allison out of her car-seat.
"How was the drive?" Bill asked.
"Pretty long. Can we talk inside? I don't want Ally in this heatwave." Rosina said as she held her daughter in her arms, sweat already appearing on Rosina's forehead. The group walked inside the house and closed the door, being greeted by a wall of cool air as Rosina looked around the room. The front door led right into the living room, the hardwood floors shining brightly throughout the entire house. Rosina walked passed the living room where she entered the kitchen and dining room, the house a really good size as a sliding glass door could be seen in the dining room. It led to the large porch where the backyard could be seen, the size perfect for Allison.
On the right side of the dining room was a hallway which led to three rooms; the downstairs full bathroom, a master bedroom and a normal sized bedroom. Rosina walked into the normal sized bedroom where she was met by a surprise, her eyes widening as she looked over to her parents in shock. This room had been transformed into a playroom for Allison, brand new toys being scattered everywhere along with a toy chest filled with more toys. The walls were painted pink with different colored flowers, a baby pink carpet spreading out as the room's floor.
"I thought you wanted this to be the computer room?" Rosina asked, gently placing down Allison where she ran right for the new toys.
"Your mother and I only said that to you so you would be surprised and taken off guard." Bill replied with a smile. "We never planned on turning this room into a computer room."
"We figured Allison's crib could still go up into your room with a few toys, but her main playroom could be down here so this way you can have your own room back." Hanna added.
"Thank you." Rosina said as she hugged both of her parents. Once she released them she looked back over to Allison, who was playfully throwing around a stuffed bear. "Do you want to go into our bedroom and see it?"
"Okay." Allison responded as she walked over to her mother, the bear still in hand as Rosina picked up the toddler.
"Do you want to see the basement first?" Hanna asked as Rosina nodded, following her parents out of the playroom and back into the kitchen where a brown colored door could be seen. Bill opened it and walked down the stairs first, turning on the light as Hanna and Rosina followed, Allison still in her arms with the stuffed bear. Once they walked down the stairs Rosina saw the basement for the first time, a washer and dryer to the right which was up against the wall and some boxes on the other side of the room. An orange cat was sleeping by the boxes, her name being Hermione and was ready to give birth to a litter of kittens any day now.
"The basement is pretty big." Rosina commented as she scanned the large room.
"Your room is even bigger." Bill said, a smile forming on Rosina's face. They walked out of the basement and back into the kitchen, where a similar door could be seen in the dining room. When Rosina first walked into the house she thought that was a closet door, but was surprised when her mother walked over and opened it, revealing a set of stairs. The group walked up them, Rosina noticing the walls were painted her favorite color; light blue. Once she made it to the top of the stairs her eyes widened once again in shock, the light blue colored room being very large and already set up.
Rosina walked on the grey carpet where she saw her bed up against the wall, her dresser and television on the other side of the room so she could lay down and watch television. She kept on walking however, a bathroom with a stand-up shower and white walls could be seen. Rosina loved the ocean, which was why her bathroom was decorated with seashells, fishnet along the bathroom wall and even had a dolphin shower curtain.
"You have a walk-in closet too." Bill said, bringing Rosina to look at him with her eyebrows raised in shock. He opened a door on the other side of the attic and revealed a large walk-in closet, a smile on Rosina's face. Her room had five windows; one in the bathroom which faced the side of the house, two which faced the front of the house, one which faced the other side of the house, and a skylight which was directly above Rosina's bed. A tall bookshelf was next to the one window which faced the side of the house while a writing desk with a wooden chair was up against one of the windows which faced the street. Another dresser was near the other window facing the street which contained Allison's clothes, her crib being only a few feet away from Rosina's bed.
"This room is amazing." Rosina commented, looking at everything in amazement. "And thank you so much for the writing desk. Now I can use that to write in my laptop instead of the kitchen table."
Rosina wanted to build a stable life for herself and her daughter so she is planning on being a screenplay writer, the brunette already signing up for a few night classes in the city which she would start in two weeks. Both her parents were doctors which was why they didn't have a problem with Rosina staying home for free and going to school, knowing that she just wanted to make a better future for Allison. Rosina had grown up a lot ever since she had Allison, the brunette having always went to wild parties and would stay out all night. It was that lifestyle which Rosina had gotten pregnant in the first place, the brunette getting drunk and sleeping with a guy at a party she had only met that first night. Rosina has truly come a long way since then, becoming fully responsible which her parents were so proud of.
"You're welcome. I'm glad you like the writing desk." Hanna said with a smile full of excitement.
"I'm going to need a baby gate for the top of the stairs though since Ally has been starting to climb out of her crib at night." Rosina stated.
"I was actually going to install another door at the top of the stairs with a bolt-lock towards the top of it so Ally can't reach the lock. I'm going to install it tonight after dinner." Bill responded.
"Oh okay, thank you. I have a few more bags in my car though. Could you guys watch Ally so I can go get them?" Rosina asked.
"We'll go get your bags. Just stay here in your room and make yourself comfortable." Bill said, bringing Rosina to smile and handed him her car keys. Her parents walked down the stairs and disappeared, bringing Rosina to sit on her bed and placed Allison next to her, who began to roll around on the middle of the bed with her bear.
"Maybe things really could be different." Rosina said with a smile. "Maybe moving here really was for the best."
Night fell over Wilmington that day as Caleb walked the darkened streets outside of the city, already quenching his thirst by drinking dry another innocent victim. A warm breeze flowed through Caleb's blonde hair, the Vampire sighing in annoyance from the heat. Even though it was night at the moment it was still a bit warm outside, Caleb hating the summer with a passion. As he walked down Westchester Avenue he got distracted by a particular car however, a 1967 black Impala parked in front of a house. He saw a couple move into the house a few days ago but merely thought they were alone, since there were no other family members at the time, which Caleb raised an eyebrow out of curiosity.
Caleb approached in front of the house but stayed in the quiet street, looking up and saw that the attic's windows had light coming through the blinds. He knew already that the attic had been transformed into a bedroom, which raised his curiosity even more. The Vampire walked to the side of the house without being detected and leaped from the ground, jumping quietly onto the roof with ease and walked over to the skylight, the sight he saw once looking down the window shocking him.
From the roof's skylight he saw a girl sitting on her bed with a book in hand and wrapped in a blanket, Caleb instantly noticing a crib a few feet away with a female toddler inside, the toddler wrestling with a stuffed bear. Rosina looked over to her daughter and laughed, Allison throwing the bear in the air and watching as the bear fell out of the crib.
"It's almost bedtime for you." Caleb clearly heard Rosina say from his enhanced hearing, watching as the brunette placed down her book and stood up from the bed. He watched every move she made as she got Allison ready for bed, Rosina handing her daughter the bear as the toddler gave out a small yawn. Rosina then gave her daughter a bottle of warm milk and laid her down in the crib, turning off the light in the room a few moments later. She then walked to the other side of the room and turned on a lamp on the writing desk where Caleb had a hard time seeing her from the angle he was at, the Vampire sighing in frustration as he jumped down from the roof. Who was this girl? And why did Caleb have an instant attraction to her?
Rosina sat at her writing desk and opened her laptop, turning it on as her gaze fell to the closed window a few inches away from her. She reached for the blind's string and pulled on it quietly, sending the blinds up and locking it so the full moon's light could enter her room. Caleb walked back to the street and saw Rosina facing her computer through the window, having a much clearer vision of her now. The very first thing that the Vampire noticed was that this girl was absolutely beautiful, and he wanted to make her his own, not caring what he had to do to achieve that desire. Rosina looked out the window to gaze up at the moon again when her eyes caught the glimpse of a man down on the street.
"What the hell?" Rosina whispered to herself as her heart skipped a beat, seeing a man standing in the middle of the street looking at her. Caleb's jaw clenched as the two locked eyes, Rosina breaking her gaze a few moments later and quietly opened the door to the top of the stairs which her father had installed that very night. She was home alone right now since both her parents were at the hospital, Rosina wanting to make sure all of the windows and doors were locked.
Once Rosina made it down the stairs and into the dining room she made sure every window in the house was locked, as well as the sliding glass door. Her attention then shifted to the front door, her parents already locking it when they had to go to the hospital. With a deep breath Rosina walked over to the door and looked through the peephole, seeing that the man in the street was now gone. Without thinking however Rosina unlocked the door and stepped outside into the darkness, seeing that there was truly no one there.
"Hello?" Rosina called out, though she didn't dare leave a few feet from her front door. She turned her head to look at the darkened surrounding, Caleb hiding behind a tree in her front yard only a few feet away from her door. Chills ran up Rosina's spine as she rushed back inside and locked the door, looking out the front window this time but again didn't see anyone outside. She decided to go back up to her room where she could keep an eye on Allison, returning back upstairs and on her laptop where she constantly looked out the window. Caleb had already left the yard however and disappeared, the Vampire knowing that things were about to get a lot more interesting from here.
