The panther prowled the night drawn to something he didn’t understand; leaping from rooftop to rooftop, he heard a soft cry. Looking down he saw a young woman being attacked by vampires. As his lean panther body tensed to jump, she let out a wild cry, throwing them off herself. He froze, transfixed, as she ripped them apart with her bare hands, like a wild, crazed animal. Moving with a cat-like grace, she spun around to face the last vampire. Brilliant gold streaks run through crystal blue eyes; lighting the dark night.
That’s what you are, Little Wildcat, he thought, moving back into the shadows, as her screams rang out into the night.
Her feet pounded on the pavement as she raced down the dirty backstreets of Deadwood. The night cool, it turned each heavy breath into a misty opaque vapor.
They’re so fast, she thought, why didn’t I stay in tonight? Just for some stupid party…Now I’m being chased by these… these… things. What are they?
Turning the corner, Lexia stumbled on the uneven curb. Regaining her balance she gasped, pulse freezing as came to a dead end. Whirling around, she faced the three creatures circling her, fear closed her throat like icy fingers, strangling the scream desperate to escape. Her eyes widened in fright as they flashed their razor sharp teeth at her. Vampires?
Blood-red eyes, full of the intent to kill, their pale ghostly skin stretched tight over the hard angular bones of their faces; these creature looked like they’d walked off the set of a horror movie.
Back flat against the wall, Lexia’s hands grazed the rough surface, wishing she could somehow melt into it. Her body shook in terror as tears silently rolled down her face. I’m sorry, Dad, she thought as they leapt at once.
Whimpering, she curled into a ball, their nails slashed at her skin, gouging into flesh. Fear clawed her mind, blackness taking over, when…
Mind suddenly blank, pain rippled through her. It was torture as adrenaline rushed through her veins, charging her muscles with a strength, which took over her body.
Screaming she stood, throwing the vampires to the ground. Her next moves were not her own; she tore them limb from limb, until there was nothing left but her quivering body, soaked in blood. Smell; metallic and bitter, filled her nostrils. With heavy breaths, Lexia turned slowly, looking at the scene, seeing blood, death, and a never ending darkness.
