Chapter 03: Acceptance

riding the airwaves

Life had inverted for Tyler Fairview – literally no more than 48 hours ago, he was busy sitting at home (freezing, of course) and watching the news – he never would’ve guessed that in two days, his entire world would’ve been turned upside down AND inside out?

“No. He was Bitten. By a Vampire.”


When he first heard the words, there was almost nothing he could do to stop from laughing.  His landlady was crazy! Vampires? That’s what she came up with?!

After his laughing fit – during which Esperanza was busy pacing around the room muttering to herself – he proceeded to take charge of the situation – or attempt to.  “Okay, all right, all right, now that that’s over and done with, what do you say we get him to a hospital?” He said, hoisting Kevin up against a wall while dialing 911 again.

First…” His eyes didn’t move from Tyler’s body as he continued to move across the room – towards what he could only assume was his “workstation” – a lone laptop sitting atop a desk.

Chapter 01: Night Shift

home sweet home

It was cold outside, but it was probably even colder inside one young man’s apartment – if not apparent by the wisps of breath escaping his mouth, it was obvious by the fact that he was wrapped in blankets while watching the small T.V he had positioned at the end of his bed.

He hated it when his heater gave out because it forced him to go visit his landlady about it – and she was not only annoyingly cheerful, but a bit too…forward.  It wasn’t that she was unattractive – she certainly was – but the fact that he had spurned her multiple times and she had yet to stop was certainly annoying.
