*Beep!* *Beep!* Beep!*
"Mmmmmhhh..." You groaned sitting up to turn off your morning alarm.
Suddenly a wave of confusion hit you. Like....
Like you were forgetting something important.
You jumped out of bed and looked around, your Tv was still on, playing early morning cartoons.
"Oh wait... Thats right. I fell asleep..." You muttered, heading to the bathroom to take a shower.
You dressed in a simple black hoodie with the words 'Make Pasta Not War' on it and faded blue jeans.
You brushed your hair but stopped abruptly when you looked at yourself in the mirror.
You were so pale...
You shook your head and grabbed your backpack
Walking down the stairs you began to feel lightheaded.
Amberlyn was already dressed in a lavender silk top, a plaid skirt, and gray flats.
She spotted you, a look of concern on her face.
"You alright _____? You look washed out." She frowned. "You want some of my makeup?"
"N-no... I'm fine. I'm just really sleepy." You muttered, following Amberlyn out the front door, where Solomon was waiting in the car. Even he gave you weird looks.
When the car drove on, you looked at the woods behind the house, flinching and holding your head when a sharp stabbing pain shot across your temple.
School wasn't any better...
You tried to ignore the stares and points in your direction.
"What happened to her?"
"Is she okay?"
"Dude she looks like all the life was sucked out of her!"
You lit up a little when you saw your friend Jane run up to you,
as soon as she saw you, her eyes widened, her mouth agape.
Before you could protest, she grabbed your arm, and drug you into the girls bathroom.
"What happened to you??" She asked, her voice laced with worry.
"Nothing Jane, I'm just really exhausted..."
"You sure? You didn't forget to eat yesterday did you?" She insisted.
"No I.... I don't really remember yesterday... I was watching Tv and..."
Jane frowned, she grabbed your wrist, placing two fingers where your pulse can be felt.
"Lemme check your pulse, You look like a corp-"
She froze, and paled. Her eyes were wide and sweat droplets formed on her forehead.
"You... y-you...' She tried to speak but was interrupted by a voice.
"Hey Jane! You in there?" The voice was male.
"Y-Yeah! I'll be out in a second Jack!" She yelled back. She looked into your eyes.
"What's wrong?" You asked.
"N-nothing _____... I'll tell you later, There's someone I want you to meet."
You followed her out the bathroom and she stopped in front of a boy you had never seen before.
He had silky chocolate brown hair and deep blue eyes. He wore a plain navy hoodie and blue jeans.
He wore thin rimmed glasses and had his hands in his hoodie pockets casually.
"Hey Jack. Here's ______. The girl I wanted you to meet." Jane said pointing to you.
"Sup?" The boy asked, nodding in your direction.
"_____This is Jack. He wasn't here to meet you yesterday because he was... um... sick."
"Nice to meet y-"
"Ello." You heard a familiar British accent behind you.
Ben was standing behind the three of you.
When he looked at you his eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"Bloody he- *ahem* _-_____... Is this how pale you are without makeup?" He asked.
You frowned. "I don't wear makeup.
Just then, Tim, Jeff and Dante walked up to the group.
Dante looked rather sullen.
"Hey _____. Good to see ya." Jeff smiled brightly, but then he frowned. "Er..."
"U-uh... _____... Why are you so pale?" Tim asked, in his normal soft-spoken voice.
Dante said nothing, but looked away, avoiding your eyes.
"What is it with you guys? I'm not sick, and I'm not naturally pale! Would somebody just pl- aghnnn!"
You gripped your head as another wave of intense pain whipped through your head.
Everyone stared at you in complete shock.
Jane turned to you. "______? What happened to you last night? Can't you remember?"
"No..." You frowned, completely confused by all of this. It felt like your brain was missing a part.
Ben walked closer to you and took your hands.
Out of the corner of your eye you saw Dante flinch and swear under his breath.
"Try to remember love... I tried this before and I think its worth a try, Think really hard okay?"
You nodded and tried to focus on your memory.
That's when it came to you.
You remembered singing in the woods.
You remembered the blue light.
You remembered the screaming.
You remembered seeing Dante...
Ben suddenly let go of your hands and glared at Dante.
"You little wanker...." He muttered under his breath.
"I-I remember going in the woods and singing.. then I heard screaming and saw a blue light.
I saw Dante he-"
You became overwhelmingly lightheaded as your knees buckled and you fell.
Jane managed to hold you up.
"What's the matter with _____? Tim asked.
"Yeah man... She looks like a vampire bit her." Jeff agreed
Jane sighed and felt your pulse once more, just to be sure. She glared at Dante.
"Well... Ninety percent of her soul is missing, thanks to Mr. Slenderman over there."
