Chapter 7

My flamethrower had to be shipped separately; the Department of Homeland Security usually frowns upon such weapons.  The flight was relatively calm, except for one person sitting right behind me with claustrophobia and a fear of heights.  Hearing a bloodsucker scream as they burn isn't bad, but human suffering is almost unbearable.  Luckily, it was a late flight and most of the passengers slept.

As soon as the plane touched down, I turned on my cell phone to see another message from my Slayer friend, Dameon:

One of the vampires just got off a train.  Are you here yet?

Wow, that was quick.

Just touched down.  Try to hold off until I get there.

I had to rush to get my flamethrower from a discrete location.  Even if I couldn't make it for the first kill, I knew that the next wouldn't be long after.  Before I could text back for directions to the station, I saw Dameon waiting right outside.

"What are you doing here?" I chastised him.  "You said there was a leech at the train station!"

"I sent you that text two hours ago.  Besides, I was on that train with her, and I know her plans.  I'm pretty sure she thinks I have a crush on her."

"So, you know where she'll be, and she doesn't suspect a thing?"

"Completely clueless, obviously a newborn."  That was the best news I had heard all week.

"Well, what are we --"  I paused, just noticing the girl standing next to Dameon.  "Who's this?"

"Oh, Maria, this is Anna.  She says that she's a Slayer, too, here for the big event.  I literally ran into her after spotting the vamp at the train station."

"The size of his bag and the eyes of the girl he was with caught my attention," Anna chimed in.  "So, shall we go find our leech?"

"Sure, let's go," I said, still a bit suspicious of this Anna.

The End
