Where now?

i ran to the edge of the forest. I heard voices coming from the vibrant green leaves.

just give up; she will find you anyway! Better to get it over with!  They exclaimed.

"i'd much rather take my chances!" i yelled back at them. Was i going mad or something? i thought i would get away. Until i got to the edge of a cliff. What should i do? Jump? I guess that would be my only option. So i did. it seemed like i was falling forever. I saw something, on the floor, was it a fire? 

 I landed with a bone-breaking thud. Lucky for me immortality now shields my bones. The crackling of the flame was the only noise to be heard.

I struggled up to my feet and dusted the sand off of my clothes.

Once my eye's actually took a look around I realised I wasn't alone. Not only was there clothes hung up  randomly about the cavern, but there were tents. Six tents. And, thanks to my amazing senses, i knew that there were people hiding in the depths of them, waiting for me to depart.

I cleared my dusty old throat and slowly strode closer to the tents, which now I had a better look, were made of old, haggard sheet.

There were sharp whispers coming from the sheet-homes. Then, one, old-looking man, was pushed out of one.

He had bad facial hair, which looked like a thick, tangled bush upon his leather-skinned face. He smiled broadly at me and exposed a pair of large, skin-shredding fangs.

I smiled politely back and he nodded. As if I gave him some code.

"It's safe!" Bellowed the old man, "He is one of us."

Then, a swarm of people broke free from the tents and dicussed amongst themselves of me, the newcomer.

They all wore raggy clothes, sandals and had unkempt hair. How on earth could they survive this way?

"Hey." a tall vampire muttered to me from inside a tent.,

"i was wondering how long it would take you to get down here." He said, not even looking at me.

"h- how do you kn- know i was coming?" i stuttered.

"thats David, he can tell the path your on, and see where it will take you." a young dark haired woman explained,

"s- so he can see the future?"  i inquired timidly,

"not necessarily, he can see where it takes you, but not what happens to you." she said,

"sit down. I'll introduce you to everyone." she said, and i obeyed her.

"thats Daniel, he can control and create fire." she said, pointing to a teenage vampire, who looked about 15,

"what, really?" i asked stunned, this would be a good power to combat Wendy,

"yeah, how do you think we got a fire started in the rain?" i hadn't even realised it was raining.,

"im Lisa, and thats Janni, he chose his own name; he didnt have a real one. and that is Hally." she said, pointing everyone out to me.

The End
