Allure… Tough Times
FROM THE PAGES OF “VAMPIRE’S TRUTH”
BOOK II OF THE “VAMPIRE’S PASSION” SERIES
BY MIRANDA BLOOM
“Two Years Have Gone By Since I Saw La Fon… I Miss Him… I Try To Go About My Day To Day Life… I Teach Children Now.”
“But It’s Useless… I Just Can’t Shake Him From My Blood… An Ironic Thing To Say…”
“I Have To Find Him…”
“And So I Shall…”
A NORTH EASTERN TOWN
A HIGH SCHOOL
Roy and Arram are sitting in her dark blue mustang out in front of the school…
Across the street is a mountainous area.
Arrram sits down her “Vampire’s Truth” book.
Roy looks at her.
“So?” he asks.
“She’s looking for La Fon too…” Arram replies thinking Roy’s asking about the book.
“Not the book… Our plan” he replies with a half smile.
“Oh… Sorry… Today’s the last day of school here… I’m sure La Fon will show up for one last buffet, before switching to whatever it is he does during the summer months…” she replies.
“Ok” Roy responds.
“And the Thin Man’s Goons?” he asks.
“All over that hillside across the street… Gunned, and scoped…” she replies.
“Uh huh… What if they shoot one of us?” he questions.
“They won’t…” Arram replies.
“What makes you say that?” Roy replies.
“Because you’ll be with them making sure they don’t” she responds as she grabs her book, puts it in her purse which is around her arm, and gets out of the car making her way towards the middle most point of the school.
Roy jumps out as well “Wait! Arram!!” he yells, but she doesn’t reply.
THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGH SCHOOL
Arram finds the most centralized spot on the campus, sits down, and starts to read her mother’s book once more.
“It Didn’t Take Me Long To Find Him… One Of The Spots La Fon And His Friends Like Best, Is New Orleans.”
“It Was Only A Matter Of Time Before I Would Surely Find Them… Most Likely In The Middle Of One Of These Brothels, Sinking Their Teeth Into The “Local Stock” Of Young Girls”
“You Shouldn’t Have Come Elizabeth” A Voice Suddenly Came From Behind Elizabeth As She Made Her Way Through The New Orleans Streets.
“It Was Vincent… He Was Behind Me… I Could Feel His Glowing Green Eyes Upon The Back Of My Neck…”
“But I Kept On Walking…”
THE HIGH SCHOOL
As the sun started to go down behind the hill, the oh too familiar chill came over Arram.
She sits down the book.
“You Shouldn’t Have Come Daisy Arram…” speaks a voice.
But it wasn’t La Fon, it was Thomas.
I turned to look at his fairly thin form, twirly mustache, and those dark blue glowing eyes.
“He Meant What He Said” he continued as he moved slowly towards me.
“I know” I replied.
He pauses “Yes… I Suspected You Did.”
“So Tell Me Daisly Arram… Why Are You Really Here” he continues, sits beside me, and picks up my book.
His eyes fade to black.
“Vampire’s Truth” he speaks.
“Your Mother Had Some Serious Guts” he continued.
“So La Fon sent you to kill me instead of killing me himself” Arram speaks her head bowed downward.
Thomas sits the book down “Maybe You Haven’t Noticed With All Of Your “Keen” Wit… La Fon Doesn’t WAnt To Kill You…” he finishes.
“Yeah… I’ve noticed” Arram replies.
THE HILLS ACROSS THE STREET
The white suited thin man’s thugs are laid out with sniper rifles, aiming towards where Arram is sitting.
Roy is watching over them.
“What the hell is she doing with that guy?! Where is La Fon” one of the snipers speaks.
“What? Let me see your binoculars” Roy says and snatches a set of binoculars form one of them.
“Oh Sh#$! It’s Thomas” Roy says and drops the binoculars to the ground.
THE HIGH SCHOOL
“Are You Ready To Die Young Arram…” Thomas says as he stands once more before her, his eyes glowing dark blue once more.
“Yeah” she replies with her head still down.
She looks up at him “If you and La Fon could just do me one favor”
Thomas hesitates, as he’s about to strike her down.
“These government men have Seth… I was supposed to deliver them to La Fon to get Seth back… But that obviously didn’t happen…” she explains solemnly.
Thomas’s eyes go black again “What??”
“If you could just make sure Seth is set free… I’d appreciate it… It’s not his fault he’s involved with all of this… It’s mine” she explains, never lifting her head.
Just then, out of nowhere, Roy comes flying through the air at Thomas, but Thomas is too quick and dodges the blow.
“OOOMFFFF!!” Roy grunts as he strikes the ground.
“Where Are These… Government Agents?” questions Thomas.
Arram nonchalantly gestures towards the direction of the hills, and in a flash Thomas is gone.
Arram runs over to Roy, who has stood back up.
“Are you alright Roy?” she asks.
He places both of his hands on her shoulders “You’re not going alone ever… Ever…” he hugs her “Ever again”
She smiles slightly.
Suddenly screaming can be heard from the Hillside across the street
Roy and Arram look at one another.
“Thomas” they both speak in synch.
