Chapter 4: Guess who's back!

"Raoul!" Christine gasped out in surprise. "Where have you been? You've been missing for three weeks."

Raoul smiled and stepped closer to her. "Oh, Christine. I've missed you so much."

"Yeah, me too," Christine said as she started to back away from him. 'Something is not right,' she thought. As she looked at him she noticed something.

His eyes seemed to glow some sort of reddish color. "Um, Raoul, I have to go back, My Friends will wonder I am," she said as she tried to push past him.

Raoul quickly grabbed her wrist and pulled her to him in one quick move. "But I want you here with me, Little Lotte," he said quietly.

When Christine was pulled up to him she saw something on his neck. Two small holes. She pushed herself away from him so she could be as far away from him as possible. "Raoul, what have you done."

Raoul materialized in front of her, grabbed her by the shoulders and said, "Oh, don't be upset, Christine. I did it for us." Suddenly he slowly leaned her back. As he did so, he let his fangs lengthen.

Christine looked at him, terrified. "Please, Raoul, don't do this," she begged, her voice cracking.

He looked into her frightened eyes and whispered, "Don't worry Christine. It only hurts for a moment."

Meanwhile, Erik was waiting for Christine. 'What on earth could be taking her so long?' He thought. 'Surly it doesn't take this long to get a drink.' Finally he decided that he would go see what was taking so long. As he was walking down the hallway he hears two familiar voices.

Raoul and Christine.

"Oh, don't be upset, Christine. I did it for us."

Erik was confused. What did he me by 'us'? He looked around the corner; just in time to se Raoul's fangs grow out. Erik's eyes nearly popped out of his head. Then he looked at Christine. It looked like she was about to cry.

"Please, Raoul, don't do this."

'Oh my god,' he thought. Erik knew that he had to do something.

"Don't worry Christine. It only hurts for a moment."

At that moment, Erik ran at Raoul.

Christine closed her eyes, waiting for the pain. 'This is it,' she thought. 'I'm going to die.'

But the pain never came.

Instead, she felt herself fall to the floor. She found Raoul lying on the floor unconscious.

She looked up to find Erik standing over her with a worried look on his face.

"Christine, are you okay?"

She got up carefully and replied in a shaky voice tears slowly streaming down her face, "I think so."

Erik gently brushed her tears away. "Please don't cry, Angel," He begged. "It breaks my heart to see you cry."

Christine grabbed Erik's arm and started to pull him away from Raoul. "Let's go Erik," she said in a scared voice.

Erik nodded. "Yes. Let's get as far away from him as we possibly can." he said as he pulled out his cell phone.

"What are you doing, Erik?"

"I'm calling Nadir, so he can take us home," he replied as he dialed the number.

"Oh, no Erik." Christine said quickly. "I don't to spoil it for them."

"Don't worry," he said, "They'll understand. Nadir? Hey it's Erik. It's easier then to try to talk over the music. Anyway, we need to leave. Because we had a run in with Raoul. Yes he is here. I'll explain it later, but we need a ride to Christine's house. Okay, thanks. Bye. They're coming," Erik said to Christine as he hung up the phone.

Suddenly out of the gymnasium Nadir and Meg came out.

As soon as Meg came out of the gym and saw Christine's tear stricken face and ran over to her. "Christine what's wrong," she asked.

"We'll talk about it later," said Erik as he put his arm around Christine. "But right now let's leave."

Meg nodded.

Then they all left the hallway, not knowing what the night had in store for them.
