Unwanted Information.

Extracts from this document...


Unwanted information. The young woman yelped, as she felt the hands stoking the ball of her back. The thin, needle like fingers were icy cold, causing her to shudder violently. Without warning, the two hands harshly clutched her trembling shoulders, and spun her around. She gazed into the two, jet-black marbles above the thin, bloodless lips that began to curl at each corner into a wry smirk. Fear paralysed her. The vampire took two long, careful strides away from Karen. Still, she stood, almost mesmerised by the two hypnotic orbs that lay in the centre of his face. Her gaze soon lowered, until her eyes rested on the wide grin that seemed to go on forever. Within a second, he bent his knees and lunged, aiming directly for Karen's naked, fleshy neck. Time began to slow down. "Heeeeellllllp!!" she screamed, as she sat bolt upright; beads of cold sweat matting her dishevelled, maroon highlighted brown hair to her forehead. Her pyjamas clung to her quivering skin like scotch tape. She slowly, but steadily swung her legs out of bed, and tiptoed downstairs, careful not to wake her already stirring parents. '22 years old, still having nightmares, and still living with my rents' Karen silently sighed to herself. 'What am I growing into?' Every night was a repeat episode of the previous. She would have the same nightmare, wake up in the same state of shock and fear, and then make the same journey downstairs, seeking a way to calm herself. ...read more.


Her senses grew alert, and she sensed a presence in the room. She halted, ceased all movement, and held her breath. She scanned the room until she was adamant that she was alone in the room. Hurriedly, she shuffled to the window and closed it. As she turned, she tripped on her own feet, and collapsed in a heap on her bed, unaware that an old friend had stopped by to pay her a visit. Her eyelids felt heavy, as her body prepared for sleep. She drew the covers up towards her chin, feeling warm, cosy, and safe. She began to lose consciousness, as her mind drifted off into dream world, leaving her helpless and vulnerable. The window opened silently. The air in the room froze over. Karen drew in her breath sharply, still asleep, and curled herself into a ball to keep well insulated. Steam was omitted from her mouth after every inhalation. The creature emerged from the murky depths of the shadows. It chuckled silently as it observed in her slumber. His inherited aristocratic attire had grown shabby over the centuries, leaving him in rags, his cape reduced to a frayed cloth. Karen stirred, and the creature dispersed. She settled down, and returned to sleep. Slowly but surely, the vampire recuperated. He knelt next to her and moved his face close to hers. ...read more.


There was something incongruously familiar in those deep, spellbinding eyes, as if it was a long lost relation of hers. "What's the matter?" he asked gently. "Why are you looking at me like that?" She looked him up and down. "Oh, the garb!" he said casually without thought. "I have to, its part of the job" Suddenly she remembered what she was doing trapped inside the vampire's drape. She consequently began to scream for her parents' aid. "Why do you keep doing that?" He enquired. "It's not exactly like they can hear you." Karen's lips froze half parted, a screech ready to fly. "What do you mean?" She queried uncertainly, her bottom lip quivering slightly. "What did you do to Shaun and me that night?" "Why do you keep talking about me like that?" His face showed puzzle and worry. He began to stoke her shoulder gently. She jerked away violently. "Who are you?" Karen was becoming hysterical. Her voice was but a shrill squeak. "Stop joking around." He began to laugh nervously, but as he saw her face continued to hold that same look of distress, his grin melted into a long look of concern. "WHO ARE YOU?!" She shrieked at the very peak of her lungs. "It's me, Shaun. Who else would it be?" "No, No, Noooooo!!" She backed up against the wall, her chest heaving, struggling to breathe. "You're dead! I saw you die." "Yes and... is that it. Is that what's been freaking you out? What's the big deal, I mean, it's not like you're alive either!" ...read more.
