 "What?" I asked after I saw the shocked expressions on Steph's and Ann's faces. The sweet scent o fear colored the night. 
"Your eyes went completely black. It was freaky." Steh took a deep, calming breath.
Ann nodded, eyes wide. I heard her heart race.
"Huh." Mental note: don't do that around people. "Sorry." I looked down, shoving my hands into my pockets and clenching my jaw....
Ann avoided my gaze. That stung a little, but there wasn't anything I could do about her fear....
Ann tasted nervous to me. I wasn't especially hungry, but the scent of fear that trickled off of her was intoxicating.


I don't think I'd react well if suddenly my friends were afraid of me, whatever the reason. And can you imagine being a teenager AND a newly turned vampire? No thanks.

  1. I don't know - being a vampire would have made my senior year pretty cool, I think.

  2. Oh geez nope wouldn't want that. I'd prob be a bad friend. I'd get over it quick I think but dang if someone's eyes went totally black on me all the sudden I might have a bit of a girly moment. lol
