Not Supposed To Be This Way…

Abby Ebon

In one night, my life was changed… forever.

We, being my father, brother, and I, were held hostage by two bank robbers. I didn't know that then, I just knew we were being held at gun point most of the time. It's sort of ironic, in a way, which twists my heart till I want to laugh, and cry, that my father, being a man of God - died in a strip club.

So did my brother, but Simon had been bitten by vampires, and would have died anyway - just like dad. I find little condolence in the fact that when I hesitated, he told me to kill him.

I guess, it's also ironic, that that night I knew how Seth, the only other survivor of the massacre… and one of the bank robbers, felt when he had to stake his brother.

Because, I am guilty of the same sin, even if they had become- or in my case, would have become, one of the undead.

When it was all over, I couldn't help but stand there, shocked by it all, that nightmare had been real, but in the dawn… it looked so normal.

Like it had never happened, but it had, and I have to live with the fact that I was the only surviving member of my family every single day.

Just like Seth.

Before he left, he gave me money though, and then left in a red sports car. Leaving me with my families RV and the rest of my life ahead of me, and frankly, I didn't know what to do.

At first, I followed that road learning to drive the RV, after a few miles, I ran out of gas outside a small town. I received the rest of my education there, but, I managed to keep the majority of the money Seth had given me.

By the time I was eighteen, I thirsty for revenge - not for Seth Gecko, for all I knew he was dead, but on the monsters that had killed the Fuller's - my family…

That night, the moon was full, and I, Kate Fuller, vowed in the church of the Almighty that I would hunt, and kill, the vampires that plagued this earth.

All I had to do… was to go about finding them…

Little did I know then that my quest for revenge would lead me right back to Seth.
