Allure… The Return
“You Think You Can Just Walk Away From Me Girl…” Vincent Said To Me As I Continued To Make My Way Through The Streets Of New Orleans… I Made My Way Into A Dark Alley… Probably Not The Best Thing… But I Didn’t Know What Else To Do. And Once I Was Thirty Or So Feet In, I Turned To Face Him… But He Wasn’t There…
Suddenly He Grabbed Onto Me From Behind, His Mouth An Inch Away From My Neck… “I’ll Drain You Of Your Life’s Essence Right Now…” He Spoke… With This I Relented, And Slanted My Neck In A Way To Fully Expose It… “Just Do It…” I Spoke…
I Could Feel His Cool Breath Upon Me… The Hunger Filled Him… But Some How He Stopped Himself “No… Not Yet” He Spoke, Then Suddenly I Was Air Born… He Was Holding Me Tightly… And We Were… Flying
ARAM’S HOME TOWN
HER UNCLE TOM’S HUGE ESTATE
Out front in the huge, half circled driveway, was Arram’s dark blue old Mustang…
Arram sat alone in the driver’s seat reading her mother’s second book… “Vampire’s Truth”.
Her hair was now a dark purple, as opposed to royal blue, but she still kept it in a ponytail.
She needed a change, and so she dyed it a new color.
She sits the book down, and gets out of the car.
10 MINUTES LATER
INSIDE HER UNCLE TOM’S ESTATE
Arram sat in her Uncle Tom’s study as he poured her some tea.
“I must say Arram, I am surprised to see you back home…” he spoke, and then made his way to his chair, using his cane.
“I can’t hunt La Fon anymore…” she spoke, whilst gazing blankly out her uncle’s window, watching the birds in the nearby trees.
“I see…” he replied, as he lit his pipe, and tossed the used match into the nearby fireplace.
She looks at him “You knew that La Fon was my mother’s lover…” she spoke.
Uncle Tom took some puffs off his pipe then “Mmm, hmm”
“Why didn’t you tell me…” she spoke more than asked.
With this he stood and made his way over to the window, looking out through the glass.
“It’s complicated” he spoke without looking back at her.
“Yeah, well I’m done” she spoke as she stood.
With this he turned and faced her “Alright…”
“I’m going back to school… Seth has already returned…” she spoke with a rather weak conviction.
“And Roy Milon?” he asked.
“I don’t want to talk about Roy…” she replied, and started towards the door.
“Arram…” he called after her, and she froze in the doorway.
“What…” she replied without looking at him.
Arram was crying, but her uncle couldn’t see her.
“Oh… Nothing” he continued.
And so she left.
10 MINUTES LATER
ARRAM IS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD
Tears still fill her eyes as she thinks of La Fon behind her in that abandoned building (Back In Episode 15)…
“Why can’t I get you out of my head” she thinks to herself.
“You killed my mother… I just know you did”
“I just know it…”
BACK AT HER UNCLE TOM’S ESTATE
UNCLE TOM’S STUDY
Uncle Tom sits at his desk, writing a note…
“Dear Arram… I know that you will never forgive me for this… But I must tell you the truth… I killed your mother… Not La Fon… It’s difficult to explain exactly what occurred… But suffice it to say, I sought only to protect her from these creatures of the night… And instead, ended her life through my rashness, and rage, meant to be used against La Fon.
I understand why you can no longer hunt La Fon… I would imagine that you, like your mother, feel a very deep connection to him. That is why I shall kill him myself… Though I admit, the last time I tried, ended in your mother’s untimely death… I feel I have no other option.
With this letter I’ve included all the documentation you will need to gain access to your mother’s estate funds…
I’m sorry Arram… I hope someday you can find it in your heart to forgive me… I know that I can never forgive myself…
Love Always… Your Uncle Tom
Uncle Tom places the letter into an envelope holding some other documents… He then hands it to his man Zorin “Mail this right away…” and stands.
He grabs onto a large bag, and his cane, and heads to his front door, where he opens it to exit his house… Standing there is Roy Milon.
“Need some help getten La Fon…” speaks Roy, which surprises uncle Tom.
“If so… I’m your man” Roy finishes.
Zorin pulls around the old Rolls Royce, and Roy and Uncle Tom get into it, and the three of them drive off.
