Finally I've put up my first chapter of my new fanfic of McFly!! Hopefully I get more people to review!! But I do appreciate all the reviews from McSteph and McFlyGrl for my story The Replacement. Keep them coming!! Haha anyway, I don't own McFly or 'The Wolfman' (where I got the inspiration for this story from), Van Helsing, or Just My Luck.
Chpt. 1 (Stephanie's P.O.V.)
'Thousands of brutal animal attacks have been appearing throughout England. So these questions have come up: What kind of animal is it? Where are the attacks? How can I save myself? All we know is that citizens of England must stay indoors ever night there is a full moon.'
I crumpled the paper in my hands and threw it out the window.
"Really Stephanie, you should learn to respect you surroundings." Mr. Benjamin said to me. I rolled my eyes and looked out the window.
"How much longer?"
"Not too long, we're actually pulling up right now." I looked at the mansion that came into view.
"Ehm…" I looked at Mr. Benjamin. "Now Stephanie, the whole town has either witnessed the creature, heard stories of the creature, or lost a family member to it. They're counting on you to get rid of it, understand?" I nodded and the old car came to a stop and the door opened. Mr. Benjamin got out of the car and I followed. I inspected the house, amazed the architect, and believed it has been around for a long time. "Stephanie." I snapped back to the real world and saw Mr. Benjamin talking to another man about 50, 60 something. I walked over and stood next to Mr. Benjamin. "Mr. Call, this is Stephanie Van Helsing, Stephanie this is Albert Call. He's watching the house while his father is away." I shook Mr. Call's hand and he had a surprised look on his face.
"Quite a grip you got there milady." I smiled and he smiled back.
"Stephanie, I must head off. Please, take good care of yourself and the people here." I nodded and he walked back to the old car. I took my suitcase and Mr. Call led me inside. Once I walked in, Mr. Call closed the door behind me and I dropped my bags.
"Whoa, this place is amazing." It really was huge, my voice even echoed, and the house had a nice old fashion style to it. I notice Mr. Call looking at me. "Oh, sorry." I began picking up my bags.
"Oh leave those; I'll have Edmund take those to your room." I put the bags back down and he led me to a rather beg room with a huge fireplace. "This is the living room, but it holds a wide variety of books on mythical creatures, such as vampires and werewolves." Mr. Call said as he led me to the back of the room where four tall bookcases lined the back of the wall.
"Thank you, I'm sure I'll be in here a lot." He let out a chuckle and his attention was turned to the door of the room.
"Mr. Poynter." He bowed and I turned to see a boy 20 something, probably my age, standing at the door. He had skater like brown hair with blond streaks in his hair, he dressed like a boy who would be in a band and from what I could tell, and he was taller than me, maybe Mr. Call's height. '', began walking over to us. "Miss. Helsing, this is Douglas." The boy rolled his eyes and I let out a giggle, whoa, why am I giggling?
"Call me Dougie." He said.
"Mr. Poynter this is Miss. Stephanie Van Helsing, she's investigating the mysterious animal attacks." I notice Dougie's eyes widened for a split second before they went back to normal.
"They only sent a girl?" I cocked an eyebrow.
"Excuse me, but I didn't know I had to be a man to handle the job. Besides I probably have more experience and knowledge with this kind of stuff then a normal man." I began walking to the door and stopped once I reached it. "Mr. Call, I'm going to unpack now." He nodded.
"Second floor, third door on your left, the bathroom is on your right." He explained. I nodded and before I exited I noticed Dougie didn't move. I didn't care though, I think. I walked out to the foyer and noticed my bags were gone, I guess Edmund already took them to my room. I made my way up the wide stair case and stopped when I heard voices come from the living room.
"Really Mr. Poynter, do you not think before you speak?" It was Mr. Call scolding Dougie.
"Sorry, but I didn't know a woman was staying here until, I don't know, now."
"I'm sorry Mr. Poynter, but ever since your mother died you have been less social with your friends and stayed away from woman. I decided it was best for you to become friends with Miss. Helsing." I rolled my eyes. So am I here to make friends with the little brat, or hunt a werewolf? "You know she's quite beautiful, I couldn't help but notice your staring." My eyes widened and there was no response. I didn't even know he was staring at me. Suddenly the doors slammed shut which startled me.
"How did he know I was listening?" I asked myself, I shrugged and continued up the stairs. When I entered my room, I noticed my belongings were unpacked. My clothes were either hanging in the closet or tucked away in the dresser drawers. On top of the dresser my jewelry and make up were separated, and in front of one of the windows I notice a glass case. I walked over to it and examined my knives, guns, and bullets were neatly placed and saw a lock on it, the key was on top of the case. I walked over to a second closet that was between the two windows and opened it. I found my crossbow, arrows, swords, and other weapons I would need to use to kill this creature. I took out one of my favorite swords and examined it in my hands; the sword was passed down every generation in the Helsing family.
"I see you know what you're up against." I jumped and spun around to see Dougie standing in the door way.
"Of course, I'm not just any ordinary hunter." I said as I turned my back and put the sword back, he entered the room.
"That's good, I wouldn't want Edmund to bury another woman, and he hates that." I turned back to face him, this time I noticed the bags under his eyes.
"What's wrong with you?" He laughed and leaned against the wooden bed post.
"What's wrong with me? Nothin, I'm perfectly fine." He was lying. I turned back around and locked the closet.
"What another busy night partying with the girls instead of helping the citizens to kill this creature?" I said turning back to face him and noticed he was annoyed.
"Funny, it's like you already know me." He said sarcastically. "You know, I don't know too many people who are rude to their hosts on the first night." He still looked annoyed and I knew he was right. I sighed.
"I'm sorry, happy?" He looked a little bit satisfied.
"Must be the name?" I gave him a confused look. "What? I've read about your family, they're all rude to people, even the ones they're helping, they don't like getting attached." I looked to the ground and let out a laugh.
"Then I guess it's the name." Okay, since when do I laugh? I looked back at Dougie and he looked uncomfortable.
"Well if you need anything, ask Call or Edmund." He walked out the door, closing it behind him. What an odd guy. I stared at the door, imaging Dougie was still there and shook my head. I can't be fooling around on my job. I walked over to the window and looked at the crescent moon. In five nights the moon will be full.
Well how'd you like it? Not sure if the moon will actually be fool in five days I kinda guessed. Lol. Anyway I already have another idea for another McFly story! How 'bout that! Anyway please review!!
