Fate's Child

Chapter 11

As soon as I went to stand back up, I could feel my head swimming. My energy was all drained and I felt like I wanted to just fall asleep. I put my hand to my head. I felt extremely rattled. I looked up at Taylor and he looked down at me with a concerned look on his face. I noticed that all the wounds that Leviathan had inflicted on him had miraculously healed. He leaned down close to me and took my hands.
“Are you all right?” He asked.
“I feel…I feel so drained.” I said, blinking hard. I looked all around and could see Amanda helping Holly up. Holly glanced over at me and winked. I looked back up at Taylor and smiled. He picked me up and I leaned my head on his shoulder.
“We’re going home.” He whispered in my ear and kissed me on the cheek.
“I know.” I smiled and nuzzled his neck.

We walked for a short while. The fire wall was gone along with the dirt mound and water wall. We finally escaped and made our way to Amanda’s car. Taylor carried me gently and helped me to get in the car. Holly and he sat in the back and Amanda drove while I sat in the passenger seat.
“Sweetie, are you all right?” Taylor asked me again and put his hand on my shoulder while Amanda started the car.
“I’m all right, just a little tired.” I smiled. I stopped suddenly when I could feel my canines beginning to extend.
“What the…” I said, covering my mouth. Amanda turned and looked at me.
“Why are your teeth…”
“I don’t know…” I said nervously. I turned the review mirror in my direction and opened my mouth wide to look at them.
“I don’t understand why they are extended.
“Are you hungry?” Holly asked from the back of the car, I turned my head and looked at her.
“A little but, I already ate for today, I don’t need to feed again for another couple of hours.” I said nervously.
“Well, let’s just get home.” Amanda said.

We finally made our way home and as soon as I walked in the door, I ran to the fridge, grabbing any raw meet I could find. Amanda and Holly sat down on the couch while Taylor followed me into the kitchen.
“Why am I so hungry?” I said, allowing the blood to trickle down the side of my mouth. He moved over to me and wiped it away clean with his thumb.
“Who knows.” He said and put his hand on the side of my face. I grabbed a napkin and wiped my face. I walked back into the living room to see my friends whispering to each other.
“Guys?” I said, narrowing my gaze at each of them.
“Phyl, I think you should come with us to the store.” Holly said, standing up.
“W-why?” I stammered.
“Just come with us.” Amanda said. I nodded and began to walk towards the door.

“Phyllis…where are you going?” Taylor said, coming out of the kitchen.
“To the store with the girls.”
“I think you should stay home. You’re still weak…” He began to say as he moved towards me.
“No…I’ll be all right. I’ll be back in a couple of minutes, I promise.” I smiled and leaned in and kissed him on the mouth.
“Okay, just take it easy.” He said. I smiled at him and turned towards the door.

We made it to the store. Just as I was about to get out of the car, Amanda came around the side.
“Stay here.” She said.
“Come on Hol.” She added. Both of my friends left me in the car and went into the store. I leaned my head back against the seat and sighed. I didn’t really understand what was going on. All I knew was that I was so hungry that I was willing to do anything to quench it. I could feel my canines elongate in my mouth again and I licked my lips. I looked outside of the car and noticed a young man sitting in his car, looking at a magazine. All I could see at that point was his neck and I craved the blood filling his veins. I stopped and shook my head.
“Phyllis, what are you thinking!” I reprimanded myself. Since I had become a full vampire, I never took from humans or anything alive for that matter, I only ate raw meat. I stopped looking over at him and back down at my hands.

“We’re back.” Holly smiled as she climbed in the back seat. Amanda was soon after and had in her hands a small paper bag.
“What’s in the bag?” I asked.
“Something for you.” Amanda said, not even looking at me. She handed it to me and put the key in the ignition. I opened the bag and peered in.
“WHAT THE HELL!” I said shocked at what I had seen.
“What?” Holly said.
“Why the hell did you buy me a pregnancy test! I’m not pregnant!” I said, and turned around in my seat.
“Are you sure about that.” Amanda said matter of factly.
“I can’t be pregnant…I mean…” I stuttered, thinking of the possibility of it.
“There’s nothing wrong with taking the test just to make sure.” Holly said. I closed the bag and sighed. Could I be pregnant? Could I?
