The first drop of blood that reaches my tongue makes me shudder. The metalic flavour to it is strange but sweet at the same time. My hunger takes over as I suck up the blood from the straw. I feel my body filling up slowly. Ray turns away just as I finish.
"Hello Ray." A cold voice hits my ears. "Still alive. No Roman to save you this time."
I stand up quietly, feeling blood trickle down my chin.
"And you got yourself a girl." He teases, smirking at Ray.
"Go back Maple," says Ray. I nod.
"No, she's not going anywhere. And neither are you." He pounces onto Ray, scratching him on the cheek. Blood appears in the wound instantly. Ramming him into a tree, Donovan punches Ray in the stomache. I hear him moan in pain, falling to the ground. I turn away to return to the house but feel a hand on my shoulder.
"You're not going anywhere." Donovan hisses, pushing me to the ground. I concentrate on his eyes, forcing a large amount of light there. He screams as the light blinds him for a while, then I run back to the house.
