Chapter Eighteen: Game of the Test!
I lend against the sliding of the house, thinking about doing this test is more the Mayor fun, and feeling a bit dizzy now. I set my left hand on my head, closing me eyes, and trying to stay calm now without freaking out on everyone. I felt two hands touching my shoulders, opening my eyes slowly, looking up to met Matthew eyes, and seeing a worry look on his face. “I will be fine,” I whisper to him, feeling him touching the side of my face with both hands, that was about to make me cry. “Please stop being worry about me… I will be fine, and I need to prove the Mayor that you are the better Vampire Hunter. Mayor needs to know that Tommy is nothing but a lazy person and does not know how to hunt a vampire… Just let me do this to prove who better Hunter,” I whisper to Matthew, and looking away to Aura standing there looking at me with a worry look on her face. “Well you two stop worry about me. I will be fine during this game of test, and leave me alone.” I push Matthew away from me, and feeling him holding my left hand.
“You have to be careful, my love… I hate to see you very weak right now, and you should not done this deal,” Matthew say to me, hold my left hand, and looking at me with a worry look on his face still.
I pulling my left hand out of his hand, looking at him in the face, and saying to him, “Remember back in April… I was weak too, and you came after me with your dogs… You chase me down in my weakness state, and now I am weak… Let’s see if you two can catch me without dogs and weapons.”
“No that was different then now… You are weaker this time then in April, and I did not know it was you in April… Savanna please don’t do this to prove to the Mayor that Tommy will not last as a Vampire Hunter in this town,” Matthew told me, trying to take my hand again, but I pulled away from him. He watches me backing away a few steps, turning around, and walking down the steps slowly and weak. “Aura, she one crazy girl I have fallen in love with all my heart and soul,” Matthew say to Aura looking at me.
“She is crazy girl, but her doing this to prove she loves you… Just be careful when getting close to her… She will be hunting for blood, she need to hunt for Wild Animal blood here soon, and if not she could go wild vampire or die quickly from not getting enough blood in her body… Her wounds are not healing over fully, if those break open, she can bleed to death quickly. So take some stuff if this happen, you can put some pressure on them, and called for me in the air… I can come to help you, try to keep her alive enough to get some more animal blood for her, and she could be hard to keep down to rest… I need you to make sure she stay down, and I will hate to see you getting badly hurt or killed by her… Imagine if she knows that she hurt you or killed you by her hands… Just be careful if you see her eyes red that it,” Aura told Matthew watching me walking around the front of the house, and seeing the Mayor having a prep talk with Tommy.
I walk around in front of the house, hearing Tommy and his father talking, and saying to everyone, “Hey are we going to stand here talking all day or are we going to do this so called test?” I was getting a bit mad that the Mayor does not trust Matthew as a great Vampire Hunter that he is, and thinking this was my entire fault that Matthew cannot be trust at all in the town. I know that I might have to leave this town for good and Matthew behind forever. I look over at my car sitting in the yard, thinking about the first time I met Matthew as my heart started to beating faster in my chest, and knowing that Darth will not stop hurting people in this town with me around.
“Fine let’s begin this Game Test,” Mayor says to everyone, and smiling at Tommy hoping he will win this deal to become the new Vampire Hunter in the town. “Okay no using of weapons and dogs, the person must bring back Savanna alive and not hurt or too badly hurt. Now let’s begin now,” he shouted the last part as I took off running, disappearing from everyone sight.
“Whoa she fast,” Tommy say to everyone seeing me getting away quickly from Matthew and him.
“Vampires are quick on their feet no matter how much pain they are in… Now enough talking, lets see who better on catching Savanna now,’ Matthew told Tommy, taking off running to find me. Tommy wined that he had to run, and he started to run slowly to find me. The Mayor was still proud of Tommy going to be the next Vampire Hunter in the town, and stood there in the yard proudly with Angela beside him. Aura stays on the front deck, worrying about me, and hoping that I will be okay now.
I ran as fast as I can into the trees, my nose catch a moment of fresh wild animal blood, and I slowly move toward it. I slowly peak through the brushes seeing a wild pig not far from me with claw marks on it body from an attack with a conger. My mouth was wetting now, I dig my fingernails into the ground, growling slowly from the back of my throat, and my eyes turning red now. I quickly need the blood now, not a moment later, I attack on the wild pig, digging my fangs into its neck, and ending its life quickly. I stood up from the ground, my skin color was returning to me slowly, and I felt a lot better to beat the people in this game. I hear footsteps in the tree, hearing Tommy wining a mile away, and quickly climb a tree to see who coming my way. “What a fool Tommy is now, he thinks he can catch me, and I will not go down without a fair fight with both of them,” I whisper giggling under my voice, and jumping tree to tree now.
Matthew and Tommy were looking for me in among the trees, and Tommy was wining behind Matthew. “Can we stop for a moment to rest? My feet hurt now, and I am getting hungry now,” Tommy wined stopping against a tree, and looking at Matthew.
“Listen Tommy this is a test to prove to your father that you’re ready to be a Vampire Hunter in this time… You need to keep your head in the game or you will end up as Vampire food… Your damn luckily Savanna fest on Wild Animal blood and not humans, and we are going after her this time without any of our stuff to help us,” Matthew explain to Tommy. Then hearing the buzzing of flies coming from behind a brush, walking up to it and pulling it back to see the wild pig lying on the ground died. “Look like we have a real game on our hands now Tommy,” Matthew say with a huge smile on his face.
“Why?” Tommy asks, then walking up to Matthew to see the pig on the ground. “Gross, which is so gross,” Tommy say gross out now.
“Do you know what this mean Tommy?” Matthew asks Tommy to think for once in his training.
Tommy was thinking to himself, and saying, “Nope I have no idea.”
Matthew hit his head with his right hand, then saying to Tommy, “Savanna got blood, so she will powerful now and hard to get now… She will be better now, and that mean she much quicker on her feet and skills… So be on close watch now, she can be anywhere around us, and remember female Vampires love to play mind games with their pray.” Matthew looking around in the trees to see me, but I was there, but I was hiding good from them. “Come on Savanna we can do this the hard way or the easy way?” Matthew shouted in the trees looking up at them, and trying to see me.
I step out from behind a huge tree, standing on branch, and looking down at them. “Matthew, Matthew, you should know by now that I never play fair or any vampire. Now are we going to stand here talking or are we going to play a game now to see who can catch me.”
“You cheated,” Tommy shouted at me with a piss off look on his face.
“How did I cheat?” I ask playing dumb to him, and knowing what I did to the wild pig a few moments ago.
“You drank some animal blood to get better,” Tommy shouted to me still piss off at me for cheating.
“No one said I can drank animal blood to get better at my A game,” I say to Tommy, and lending against the tree tuck with my arms cross in front of my body.
“She got us there, Tommy; we never set up a rule with her that she could not drink any wild animal blood… So she out beat us on this one, and now we have to catch her with a good game from her.” Matthew explains to Tommy, looking up at me, and knowing I will run here soon. “Do you want a head start or not?” he ask me nicely.
“Screw the head start, I seeing you two later,” I say jumping out of the tree and running pass them through the middle of them, and into the brushes.
“Told you Female Vampires will play mind games and that a small piece of a mind game she plays with us… See you later I got a Female Vampire to catch,” Matthew says to Tommy running into the brushes to find me.
Tommy stood there alone, mad that Matthew will not help him, and walking around the area thinking. “I can help you,” a male voice spoke behind him, making Tommy jump up in the air, and turning around to see Darth and his group behind him. “Sorry for scaring you, but we can help you catch whoever your after,” Darth say to Tommy acting cool now.
“What do you want from all this?” Tommy asks Darth with a raise eyebrow.
Cherry walk around Tommy, looking him over with Luck and Otto standing behind Darth, and Darth spoke, “How about being the Greatest Vampire Hunter in the town?… In addition, making your girlfriend very proud of to you to give you the best sex you will ever happen before… My group and I will help you out, but you must promise not to hurt my group.”
Tommy was thinking on the great sex Angela can give him being the new Vampire Hunter of the town that he made a great deal with Darth. “You catch Savanna, and I will promise not to hurt your group in the town,” Tommy says shaking Darth hand.
“You made a great deal Tommy, your father will be proud of you. Wait here as we get her, and you do the delivery to your father. She will be alive still, gets a bit beaten,” Darth say shaking Tommy hand with an evil grin coming to his mouth, and running away quickly into the trees. That made Tommy blinks a few times, waiting there for Darth to return.
I keep on running through the trees, hearing Matthew not far behind me, and feeling something hitting me from the side. I look up to see Cherry on top of me, and I spoke to her, “Cherry what the fuck is you doing here?” I try to move out of her grip, but still a bit to handle Cherry strengthens on top of my body.
“Nice seeing you again Savanna,” Cherry say to me, hissing in my face, then trying to take a bite of my face, but was very close to my nose. “You’re not that strong after what my brother did to you last night, and I am surprise that you’re still alive… Oh ya your little witch friend still live in this town, and she help you get better with that stuff she uses to drain our poison out of your body… What will you do if we hurt her or kill her?”
“I will rip you throat out in a second, and fed it to Matthew dogs. Then watch you die slowly in front of me, and I will enjoy watching your blood be spilled all over the place,” I curse at Cherry, and seeing Darth standing by the trees.
“Oh that will not happen, we made a deal to Tommy, and that asshole will leave our group alone when he becomes the new Vampire Hunter,” Cherry told me, hitting in the face a few times, and started to beat me up.
“Tommy did not know you four are Killer Vampires that thirsty for human blood,” I say to Cherry, rolling away from Cherry along the ground, quickly to get to my feet. I felt two fists hitting me in the back of my head, and dropping me to the ground face first. Otto and Luck chuckling behind me creaking their knuckles, and lifting me up by my arms. “Asshole,” I say to them, trying to get out of their grip, but I was still a bit weak from Darth attack on my last night.
“Hey boss, do you want a few hits on her?” Otto asks Darth in a sly voice, and hitting me in the face with his fist.
Darth walking up to me, looking at me with an evil grin on his face, and giving me one good hit in the face knocking me out. “You ask for is, and your still a bitch,” Darth say to me, as they drag me back to Tommy, and hoping Tommy will keep his deal with them.
“Hey Tommy, look what we have for you… Keep your promise to us, and she all yours to prove to your father you’re a greatest Vampire Hunter,” Darth say to Tommy, handing me over to him, and hearing Matthew trying to find me.
“I will keep my deal… Now hand her over now,” Tommy say to Darth, happy to see me hanging from Otto and Luck hands by my arms.
“Good, now here she is,” Darth say to Tommy, having me drag to Tommy arms, and then everyone quickly getting away. Tommy drag me back to the house, but five dark people in hoods and capes watching what happen in the woods, and they nodded their heads to each other.
Matthew saw Darth and his group walking among the trees, thinking way they are here, and hoping that I am okay. He headed back to the house, slowly among the trees, his heart feeling heavily for my love, and knowing that one day, we might be together forever or not. The female smaller hooded person looking down at Matthew, then saying in an echo voice to everyone around but Matthew could not hear them, “I see why Savanna fell in love with that Vampire Hunter.”
A male hooded person looking at his leader, and speaking in an echo voice, “Savanna has broken the main rule of being a Vampire… Vampires should never fall in love with a human, worse a Hunter… Remember his family killed off her family, and leaving her alone forever.”
“He let her live, and he live with that pain of killing her family… Now lets watch and see what will happen,” the smaller female say disappearing in the air, and the rest was follow their leader into the air.
