Vampire Tracker Part 8
This was all too much to take in. Could I really be Amisi? Was my obsession with vampires something else all together? My head felt light, my palms began to sweat. I closed my eyes and opened them. The candlelight made eerie shapes along the walls. Why is this happening to me?
Jeremy’s feet scoffed across the floor in the other room. “Vel, are you ok?” It was almost comical how small and scrawny Jeremy looked next to the dark-skinned He-man that stood before him. “What’s he done to you?”
Seth’s muscles flexed when he spoke. “I’ve not harmed her, only told her the truth.”
“The truth?” Jeremy looked at me, his eyes full of questions.
My legs twitched. My instinct told me to run, but I couldn’t move. “Seth, I have a lot of questions.”
Confusion swept over Jeremy’s face. “Questions? What questions? We need to ditch this guy and get our asses outta of here.” Behind him Lucille growled, Jeremy inched closer to me.
How could I make Jeremy understand? I had to find out what all this meant. “Calm down Jer. We need to stay, or at least I do.”
Jeremy’s shoulders slumped, his face scrunched. “I’m confused.”
I gave him one of those “get with the program” looks, the kind talk show hosts give their lame guests. “Believe me, you’re not the only one.”
Thank you for leaving such great comments on my POV dilemma in last weeks flash (Vampire Tracker Part 7). After much deliberation I’ve decided I’m not quite ready to veer away from Vella’s voice. There is some more plot development that needs to occur through her eyes.
