Behind the conveniently located potted plant...

Amidst all the confusion, no-one noticed Taro hiding in the corner. He'd snuck in earlier, but had bolted into the corner in the confusion. Now he sat, crouched behind a large potted plant and watched the chaos unfold before him.

Great, he thought, first I get a real nasty kicking in my own story, then I get pushed aside and stepped on in this dump and now there's a megalomaniac vampire trying to take over the world. Could my life get any better?

The vampire, Kyle, walked towards the plant behind which he was hiding. Taro ducked, secretly pleading to whichever gods that may have been listening at the time to hide him. Fortunately, the vampire stopped halfway and turned back to the room, adressing it at  large. Taro bit his lip worriedly, he needed to get out, and fast. If there was danger here, then he had no intention of staying. When the going got tough, Taro ran for cover. He knew the door would be useless, they'd see him make a run for that. Then Taro's gaze slid to the partially opened window. Aha, he thought, perfect. Now, he just needed to wait until the rest of these people were out of the way...

The End
