My Babysitter's a Vampire


Rochelle was the first one to walk out of the door at the end of the day.

Today was the day she was going to confront Jakeward; find out what he is.

Rochelle went off into the woods, hoping that Jakeward was going to follow her. And he did.

As soon as she got there, she stood still.


"What? What do you want from me?"

"Nothing, it's just that... I know what you are. I can tell."

"How, exactly?"

"Well, sometimes you stop for a moment, look into the distance with a strange look in your eye, and then suddenly, you just come back to reality.

You don't eat or drink anything.

You stare into the distance for too long, like you're lost in your own world.

Your eyes just change to a different colour, but no one sees it happen.

You don't breathe, and your heart doesn't beat.

You occasionally speak like you're from a different world.

And whenever it's sunny, you don't show up for school.

I know what you are."

"Go ahead, say it to me!"

Rochelle turned around to face him directly.

"You're a vampire."
