needs improvement---------> how i became a vampire (taken from my story, A New Beginning)
...... I was walking home from school alone (as always) and the sky had become unusually pitch black for the time of day. The wind howled and came in from the west, trees overhead came alive and swayed in synchronisation, leaves whispered in a million tiny voices as if sharing some forbidden secret. Usually there were birds that nested upon the trees, whistling a chorus of enchanting lullabies. When gusts of wind would come in, usually the miniature birds would become fearless, swooping, diving, dodging becoming stunt men of the sky. But there were no birds, no dogs barking, no presence of animals what so ever. ‘Perhaps there was a storm on its way in’ I thought, that would describe the unusual blackness of the sky, the howling wind, the lack of presence of animals. I could feel it was something more than that though, something utterly deadly compared to a storm. Something wasn't quite right and I couldn't quite put my finger on it, subconsciously I had decided to pick up my pace to a jog.
In the corner of my eye, I could see something lurking within a shadow of a building. It was then I began to run. The shape had decided to stalk closer in my direction, as if feeling a physical pull towards me. Panicked, I then launched myself hurdling into the forest for some cover from the mysterious shape. it shadowed my direction and it didn't seem to find difficulty in keeping a pace that matched mine.i ran deeper in to the forest not sure which direction to go in. I was lost; I had only been in the forest during the light of the day, with friends.
The only sound that was audible was my shallow, accelerated breathing and the crisp crunch of the leaves as I trod on them. There was no sound of leaves rustling and crunching under its path, ‘maybe it was no longer there’, I had thought. I risked a glance behind my shoulder and saw a human shadow (or that's what I thought it was) advancing on me with incredible, impossible speed.
In my haste I managed to trip over and fall face flat on the soil. It was then I sensed it's presence a mere foot beside my body. I wanted to scream, but I couldn't find my voice. I looked up at the figure that was towering over me and my eyes filled with tears which blurred my vision, a slow sob began to build in my chest.
In the next second a searing, burning, unbearable pain blocked out any of my previous thoughts or actions. I wanted to die, to end the pain, that shouldn't exist. I begged it to kill me, for no one deserved to endure that kind of pain. It was like being set on fire, like being burned at the stake. I thought to myself, 'so, this is what hell is'. I screamed an endless stream of pleas as the burning took over my body. Though at some point I realised that death was not coming, that the pain would continue to burn through by body. It did no good to scream, to beg.
When the fire left every other part of my body, except for my throat, I realised I was no longer human for I could see so, so much more than I used to with my previous, weak eyes. I could see every insignificant detail to the giant trees towering over me-which strangely looked extremely breakable to me now- the branches intertwined in a million tangled knots. Looking down at the leaves that lay there beside my feet, I could see a million different shades of the same colour spiralled out in intriguing shapes, which spread across the leaves’ surface area. I could smell unusual scents that lurked in the atmosphere, the scent of soil and vegetation was almost overpowering. I could sense and smell a strange, almost not entirely unpleasant scent of small creatures cowering beside trees and burrows. I found that I could not only smell my surroundings, but taste them too. The woodsy musk tasted of a million different things, there was the strange, warm taste of the creatures, the dusty earth I stood upon, the freshness of the vegetation that surrounded me. I thirsted for something, something sticky, hot, which would ease the burn wedged in my throught. The mysterious creature, which I had previously registered almost an eternity ago, was nowhere in sight.
