I went to my place and picked up James' jacket in case I couldn't find him. I went back to the car, where Benny was, and then drove off to find James. I started sniffing the air to pick up James' scent. It's a good thing I did.
"Any luck?" Benny asked.
"We might have a chance of finding James… and possibly Ethan." I smiled.
UGH! My idiot brother was trying to find me. Now what will I do?
I figured I should go to Aiden. Aiden's Ethan's twin brother, who I kidnapped years ago. He looked just like him, but he acted more like me. I also made him a vampire. So, I've practically raised him.
I walked over to Aiden's room, knocking the door.
"Aiden, are you in there?" I asked.
"Yeah, come in," he said.
I opened the door to see him on a chair, doing who the heck knew that.
"You know, you could've just opened the door. There's a lock for a reason," he said.
"Whatever," I said quietly, but not quiet enough because so Aiden wouldn't hear me.
"So, what brings you here?" Aiden asked.
"Well, my idiot brother Jesse is looking for your brother… and me. And-"
"So what? You always have a plan," he cut me off.
"That's why I came here. You're part of my plan to distract Jesse," I said.
Aiden smiled. "I'm listening."
I drove further and further. I could still smell James. He was somewhere, but I could find out where exactly. But the weird part was whenever I drove further, the streets got emptier. But why?
"Okay, this place is freaky," Benny commented.
There were only a few people. Every street had like five people max. This was hopeless. I lost my brother's scent. Now what? I parked in the nearest place I could.
"Why are we stopping? Are we running out of gas or something?" Benny asked.
"No, I think I lost James' scent," I said.
"Wait, Jesse. We're searching for James because of Ethan, right?" He asked. I looked at him and nodded. "I think that's him."
He pointed to his right outside the window. I spun around to see… Ethan! Finally! Just when I lost hope. But Ethan looked paler this time. His clothes were torn and he looked exhausted. What happened to him?
I got out of the car with Benny, heading towards Ethan.
"Ethan?" Benny asked.
He looked at us. "Jesse? Benny? Oh my gosh, you found me." He hugged me.
"We're happy to see you." I said. He released me. "But what happened to you? You look terrible."
"Gee, thanks," he said sarcastically. "I escaped from James, but he's still looking for me. I think I lost him."
"I think we should let him come to my place," Benny suggested.
I shrugged. Why not? "Fine."
I was still in the cell, sitting on the bed and waiting for something to happen. Jesse will find me. He had to. But what if he didn't? Well, the others will know that I'm missing, so they might search for me. But who the heck would save me?
Someone, please try to save me, I thought. I missed everyone already. My goofy friend Benny who always tried to cheer things up by joking. Rory the dumb vampire ninja who always sneaks up on us and scares us to death. Sarah… how can I describe her? Maybe the person who doesn't want to hurt a human being. Erica who I didn't get to know very well, but just got along with. But most importantly, Jesse. How can I not miss him? Without him, I feel that my life's empty. I remembered all of these faces, which made me smile.
My thoughts were interrupted when I saw someone looking at me from the bars. I spun my head around to see James.
"Have you thought about it?" James asked.
"Look, I'm not choosing from any of those two, ok-"
"Figured you might say that," he interrupted. I noticed an evil smiled on his face, which creeped me out. I swallowed. He chuckled. "I can sense your fear."
"What are you gonna do with me?" I asked, trying my best not to sound so panic-y, but failing.
When a laugh escaped his mouth, I could see his fangs. I was toast.
In just a second, I saw the door open a bit and felt someone touch my shoulder.
"Don't worry, this won't hurt a bit," he whispered. "Just a lot."
In a matter of seconds, I felt pain in my neck. I felt something burning it. The pain was soon felt through the rest of my body, which made me fall on the ground. I was conscious, but I was weak. The pain was too much to handle. I couldn't take it. I didn't just feel pain, I felt changes. Oh no, I was turning. I wish I was dead by now instead of a human who's turning undead. That was it. I was going to be fourteen forever.
Those two really thought I was Ethan. I thought they'd figure it out, but I guess not.
Benny let me in his house as I pretended I was hurt. Jesse made me sit on a couch. Now it was time to let them give some information to me.
"Thanks guys." I fake smiled.
