Knox was more than willing to care after Rachel while Vladimir and I were away for a few hours. Knox liked Rachel, as much as he was his own sister.
"I should start paying Knox for taking care of Rachel while I'm gone." I joked, trying to get the side window open. "God knows it's hard enough to take care of your little sister when yer only 19. Ow…Damnit..." I winced when I cut my finger on the window.
"Here." Vladimir grabbed the window and yanked it up without any difficulty, the nails popping out of place.
"Thanks." I muttered and climbed in through the window. I stuck my finger in my mouth and sucked on the blood as Vladimir also climbed through. I slowly made my way through the dark living room, shining my flashlight. The light then landed on a blood-soaked spot in the carpet and I swallowed a lump in my throat.
"Come on." Vladimir's hands gently gripped my biceps and guided me upstairs. We walked into my parents' room. "What should we be searching for?"
"Anything, a journal, newspaper clipping, hell even a piece of paper." I replied and began searching through the dresser drawers. I used the flashlight to get clothes out of a drawer and searched around. Suddenly, the bottom of the drawer gave out a hollow sound and my eyes narrowed. I lifted up the bottom of the drawer and set it on the ground.
I used the flashlight to look in and saw a small stack of papers and a journal. "Hey, I found something." I motioned at Vladimir and he walked over, kneeling beside me. "There's not a lot here…but maybe there's something inside."
Before I could open the journal, Venus ran into the room. "Vladimir, I've got news." She spoke, ignoring that I was even there.
"Yes." She nodded. "We've found him. We've found Godric."
"He's in a warehouse on the edge of town. One of the fledglings was able to sneak in….before the fledgling was killed by the humans that's keeping Godric prisoner." Venus explained. "It's only humans guarding the place so we can easily take them down."
"Venus, violence is not always the answer." Knox spoke calmly towards the female blonde.
"Violence IS the answer Knox! Godric has been kept prisoner by them for over two months now! He is probably just dying to get a drink."
"Um…if I may interrupt," I spoke, causing the three vampires to look at me. "But who is Godric? The way you talk of him, it seems he's your…well…God or something like that."
"Well, in a way he is." Vladimir replied. "Godric the oldest vampire on the earth. He was the first vampire created by God."
I was taken back. "Wait….so God does exist?"
"Of course he exists you stupid human." Venus hissed and Vladimir gave her a look. "Godric is our King, our maker."
"Actually, Russell is one of Godric's fledglings, which explains why Russell is over 1000 years old." Knox added. "Godric has been around since the beginning of time. He is very old."
"Now that that's out of the way, how do we agree on rescuing him from the humans?" Venus asks.
"I have a suggestion." I spoke. "Why don't I go in? I can get a fake ID and everything and I'd have him out of there in an hour tops."
"I do not think it is a good idea." Vladimir shook his head.
"Why do you want to help human?" Venus questioned with an annoyed look.
I sighed. "I owe you….all of you for allowing Rachel and I to stay here. I don't like being in debt to anyone."
The vampires all exchanged glances and then turned back to me. "Alright, we have a plan."
I unscrewed the last screw from the vent and I crawled into the ventilation system. I crawled along and up and came to an open vent where I heard a man talking.
"You must be thirsty vampire." A man chuckled. "Haven't fed for two months. I bet you're just dying to sink your teeth into a human."
I crawled along the vent more and then came to another, kicking it open and jumping out. I landed on my feet and then glanced around the corner, seeing a man with a rifle sitting outside the door. I composed myself and then walked towards him. "Hey dude, your shift's over."
"Wha? The boss said we had to have two men at the same time to guard that blood-sucker."
"The boss said it was alright if I took the shift for a while. Tell that to your buddy also." I replied.
The man nodded and told his buddy inside that their shift was over and the two left. Once they were gone, I went into the room and shut the door, locking it. I turned to the vampire and gasped quietly.
He couldn't have been any older than me. Seriously, he looked my age. He had dark hair, warm blue eyes and his deathly pale skin looked sickly. The silver chains around his neck and arms had burned severely into his skin.
So this was Godric.
I hurried over to the vampire and gently, began pulling the silver chains off his form. He groaned a slight bit as the chains detached from his skin. I was just pulling the ones off his neck when he spoke to me. "Who are you?" he questioned, in a curious voice.
"My friends call me Shell; I'm here to get you the hell out of here." I replied. "Ew…." I made a small noise of disgust when I had pulled some skin off and dropped the chains to the side. "We have an hour until sunrise, so we have to hurry. Your name is Godric, King of the Vampires."
He chuckled a little bit in that boyish voice of his. "You must be friends with us vampires."
"Eh, some." I shrugged and pulled the last of the chains off. "Alright, let's get out of here. We can use the vents and-."
"I can't." Godric interrupted, looking at me. "I have not fed in two months and I am too weak to move."
Fuck. And how am I supposed to give him-ooooohhhhhh….I mentally realized and then knelt down, bringing my dagger out. "Which to you prefer, the neck or wrist?"
Godric shook his head, making me furrow my brows. "You need to leave, before the humans figure out what you are doing."
"Godric, I didn't come all this way just to leave you. Whether or not I have to force you, you're coming with me." I put the dagger to the side of my neck and sliced into the skin. I winced a little as slight pain erupted in my neck from the cut. "You need to drink….please…"
He stared at me for a moment before he weakly pushed himself towards me and brushed the long, dark locks away from my neck. I swallowed the lump in my throat as he got closer and then hesitated. "I do not wish to harm you."
"You won't, I've been bitten before. I know what it feels like." I spoke quietly.
As soon as he placed his lips over the cut, his fangs pierced the skin and I slightly jerked from the pain as he drank. It wasn't actually as painful as I thought it would be, not that I would ever think I would meet the king of vampires and have to give him my blood. I closed my eyes and let out a shuddering sigh as a numbness sensation washed over me and the pain faded away.
His right hand held the back of my neck to keep me in place while the other had a firm grip on my shoulder. I became light-headed and as soon as I thought I was going to pass out, his fangs retreated from my skin and he licked over the wound and bite marks, healing them.
Godric pulled away from me completely and his skin was back to its normal paleness, along with the marks from the silver chains completely gone. I put a hang to my neck, massaging it gently. "Don't you need more than that?"
"I require little blood to survive." He replied and helped me stand. "Thank you. I am forever in your debt."
"No problem." I spoke and sighed, looking at my watch. "Alright, we got 10 minutes until sunrise. Let's get out of here."
He hoisted me up into the ventilation system first and then climbed in behind me. I got out my cell phone and called Vladimir.
"Hey it's me. I got him; we're on our way out now." I replied, looking both ways and then going left with Godric crawling behind me. "Get here as soon as possible. The sun's coming up in ten minutes tops."
"We'll be there in five." Vladimir replied and hung up.
I slipped my phone into my pocket and we arrived at the outside opening that I came to. "Alright, the coast's clear. Let's go." I crawled out first and then helped Godric out and up onto his feet.
And that's when we both heard the cocking of guns.
I slowly turned around and saw that both of us were surrounded by men with guns, possibly wooden or silver bullets. "Oh fuck…." I swore.
"'Oh fuck' is right little lady." A man, the boss I assumed, spoke.
"Get behind me." I shoved Godric behind me, standing in front of him protectively. "Why do you need him? What could you possibly need him for, except for leaving him prisoner in a room, with no feedings?"
"We're experimenting." A second man replied. "Since that vampire is the king of all vampires, we were figuring out if he would die, then the rest of the vampires would die."
"It doesn't work that way." Godric spoke. "Not every vampire is-."
"Shut your mouth vampire." A third man snarled, pointing his gun at Godric's head.
I suddenly saw light in the sky and gasped as I looked up. The sun was rising over the horizon. Come on Vladimir, you need to get here quick! I thought and then quickly took off my coat. "Cover yourself with this!" I threw the coat at Godric and then brought out my gun.
Gunshots rang out and one pierced my shoulder, thigh and hand. I screamed, immediately going to clutch my wounds and brought out my dagger, throwing it at the boss. It plunged right into his head and he fell dead to the ground. "Hmm, maybe I should invest in knife throwing….ah fuck…" I muttered and grimaced.
Suddenly, that's when Vladimir arrived with two blankets. "Get in the car!" he shouted, snarling at the men. I made sure Godric was covered from the sun and guided him to the car, opened the back door and put him inside.
"Vladimir!" I shouted his name as I got into the front seat. Vladimir rushed over at vampire speed and got in the back with Godric, using the blankets to cover both of them. I shut my door, started the car and drove off. The men behind us disappeared a few moments later and once we were on the road, I sighed in relief. "Is everyone okay?"
"Yes." Vladimir replied, his voice slightly muffled by the blanket. "Godric?"
"I am alright." Godric replied also.
I sighed once again in relief and winced loudly. "Crap…." I muttered.
"What's wrong?" Vladimir asks.
"Nothing, I'm just bleeding all over your car."
"Do not worry about it. Let's get back to the house and we'll get everyone settled in."
I sighed. "Right…"
