Disclaimer: So I obviously don't own Fright Night. Disclaimers suck. That is all.
Author's Note: Just a litle teaser.I am so excited to work on a Fright Night fic. This is has been in my head for a while. I loved the movie (both versions) and loved Evil Ed. I wished that he ended up differently. Reviews are strongly encouraged.

Ch. 1: Don't Call Me Evil
"Jerry's here!" Amy said panicked. My ex-best friend looked like he was about to throw up or cry. I found I didn't care. We hadn't been friends for a long time. "Charlie! Do it now," she begged.
I slowly limped toward my pray. I smelt the blood. It was so close. Finally after months I was getting what I truly wanted… revenge. Then something happened that I didn't expect. Charlie charged toward me. Pain overcame me. Suddenly I knew it was over. My life flashed before my eyes. It was the second time, but this time I knew it was the last.
2 months ago
I groaned as I heard my alarm clock go off. I still didn't know why I got up at 6:00 in the morning. Well I did, I would just never admit it to myself. I slowly got up and got in the shower. I knew today was going to be a long day. I looked at my phone and smirked. The text message read, same time, same place. I didn't need to look at the name to know who it was from. Looked like this day was going to be interesting after all. I grabbed by bag and my hoodie and gray leather jacket. I almost was out the door when someone called me back.
"Edward is that you?" my dad called. I groaned I was hoping to get away before my dad was up.
"Yeah," I called, not really feeling like lying. My dad walked out of the kitchen.
"Going to the library?" he asked.
"Yeah. Got a Trig test today," I explained.
"Okay. Well, come home early tonight. Your mom has been hearing weird things on the news," he said. I looked at him. What did he mean by weird things?
"What do you mean by weird things?" I asked.
"Weird accidents. People going missing. You know the stuff that would make your mom worried," he said and shrugged. I nodded. Promising I would be home early, I left for school - my daily torment.
It wasn't as if I got bad grades. I've been an all A student since kindergarten. I just hated the people in high school. At least most of them. I only had two best friends, Adam Johnson and Charlie Brewster. Scratch that, I only have one friend now that Charlie ditched me and Adam for her. It started a few months ago. He had started blowing us off then suddenly he started hanging with other people. We use to make fun of those people. I swear, the boy's acne clears up and he grows a few inches and it's like I don't exist. Sighing, I sat down and began to study.
I studied until I couldn't avoid it anymore. I had to walk down the stupid halls that I've had to since freshman year. I nearly got to my locker when I came across what I was dreading.
"Look it who it is, Edweird," Mark said. His stupid friend Ben laughed. I rolled my eyes. Ben was too stupid think for himself. As always, Mark had girls around him.
"Very original. Did you think that one up yourself?" I retorted.
"Oh, shut up nerd," one of the girls, Eva I think her name was, said.
"Don't worry, Eva," Mark said while he pushed me.
"Mark, stop," said Annie. I looked at the other girl in surprised. Annie Walsh was defending me in public. Annie was one of the most popular girls in school. She wouldn't defend me in public.
"Why?" he asked her confused. I looked at her wondering what she was going to say.
"Because," she said as if it was so simply. "You don't want to get nerd juice all over the place. The janitor has to clean that shit up," she added confidently. I dared not look at her. Mark laughed and they left. Annie gave me a look and she left.
School was hell the rest day. I just waited for the final bell to ring. When the sound of my freedom came, I walked to the back of the football field and waited.
"Looking for someone?" a voice said in my ear. I turned around.
"Only my gorgeous girl," I said smirking.
"Aw, you're just saying that," Annie said, kissing me on the lips. She still had her cheerleading uniform on.
"Why did you go out for cheerleading again?" I asked her. No one knew I was going out with Annie. This was one of the reasons why.
"Cause it looks good on a college application. With my last report card I can use all I can get," she said, shrugging and then kissing me again.
"Nerd juice?" I asked her incredulously when she parted from my lips.
"Well, I had to say something. Mark was about to squash your face in, and I wouldn't want a boyfriend with a broken noise, would I?" she said, pinching my cheeks.
"You're ridiculous," I said, smirking. I grabbed her bag.
"Where do you want to go tonight?" she asked.
"How about to the pier?" I asked her. She nodded and we walked to her car. I still don't know how we managed to get away with sneaking around like we'd been doing. It was almost too easy.
"So how was last night with Adam?" she asked as she put the car in reverse. I thought about the question. I wasn't about to tell her what I was really doing. She would never believe me.
"It was fun. He is still getting over Mono though," I told her.
"Hope he gets better soon," she said sweetly. I smiled at her. She was always asking about my friends since she couldn't get to know them the normal way.
"Don't you think it would be easier if we didn't have to sneak around?" I asked her. I always pressed this issue with her.
"Ed," she warned.
"Why not?" I asked her. She didn't answer me for a few minutes.
"I'm doing you a favor," she said. I sighed. It was always her argument.
"I'm sorry, Evil." she said sweetly. I sighed. It was hard to argue when she used my childhood nickname. Normally I hated it, but coming from her it was different.
"It's for the best, I'm sure. Like anyone would guess that the class loser would land a beautiful cheerleader," I said rolling my eyes. She took her eyes off the road and looked at me.
"You are not a loser," she said firmly. I shrugged.
"The only good thing about you being a cheerleader is your uniform is not hard to get off," I said, smirking, knowing what her reaction was going to be.
"Don't say that Ed!" she said blushing. I laughed.
"When are you going to allow me to drive your car?" I asked her.
"Not in a million years," she replied. I laughed again. She hated my driving, though I told her it was just because she was a nervous driver."So my parents are going out of town this weekend," Annie said casually.
"Really," I said interested.
"Yeah, want to spend the night?" she asked me. She said it so bluntly it was as if she was asking me for a pen.
"Seriously?" I said with disbelief.
"Yeah, it would be fun. We can order a pizza, rent a horror movie," she said. I nodded.
"Don't have to convince me anymore," I said, smirking.
"Good. I can't wait until we graduate. We can get an apartment together," Annie said hopefully. I smiled, trying not to display anything. I hated that I hadn't told her I had been accepted to Columbia yet.
"Yeah it will be great," I said, smiling at her. I was screwed and I knew it. Hopefully she wouldn't be too bothered about it. Who was I kidding, nothing ever worked out well for me.
Next Chapter: Ed and Adam do more investigating on the strange disappearances. Ed begrudgingly attends a football game. Ed finds someone that can help him and Adam.
