William: Waiting for Death

I tried her old house, climbing to the window it was empty, like completely.

She must have moved, to get away from me. No home, no job, no love, maybe I should end it all now.

I could sense daylight coming.

I was on a large bridge heading into the city. The road was pretty empty apart from the occasional car as I sat on the metal railing looking out onto a large river with cliff sides on either side. It was beautiful to watch the light slowly rise, the morning birds twittering in the rustling trees.

A sick feeling wanted me to preserve myself, that was what vampires were about, self-preservation. But at the same time I had a morbid curiosity to see the sun and end it all.

So I waited as a cool, crisp morning breeze rustled my coat, to die in the light.

The End
