My Boyfriend Is A Vampire Part 2!

Getting you all in the mood for Halloween here is the second part of my story My Boyfriend Is A Vampire. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

I sat looking moody in the kitchen when my father came in.
“What’s up?”, he asked knowingly.
“Nothing.”, I lie.
“Boy trouble?”, he asks again knowingly.
Why does a father always just know you so well?
I sigh.
“Sometimes I think Trenton is just so far away yet so near.”
“In what way?”
I can’t say it’s because he’s a vampire!
“Because … well because we’re so different. He’s the captain of the football team, hottest guy in school. I’m just the nerd.”
“Nerds take over the world. Remember that?”, he smiles,
“I’m sure he doesn’t see it that way.”, he added.
“But how are you sure?”
“Just the way he is with you.”
“He hasn’t told me he loves me yet.”
“It’s not all about words son. He’s very protective of you. He loves you. Believe your father on this one. I’m too long on this planet at this stage. I’ve picked up a bit of knowledge where matters of the heart are concerned Cully.”
“Did you and mum have difficulties like this in the beginning?”
“Well worse. She was dating the hot football team captain. And I was the nerd.”
“Oh … and what did you do about it?”
“Punched him. Got expelled. Thankfully was took by a new school. She came to see me. Told me she always wanted me but never knew how I felt. But it was complicated after.”
“How?”
He is staring into space.
“That’s for another day.”
I want to persist but I don’t. After all I have my own secrets.
“Anyway you’re fifteen. You shouldn’t be here been all down.”
“I’m going to go see him.”
“Not sure right now that’s what’ll cheer you up but I’ll see you when you get back.”
“See you soon dad.”, I smile and leave.

Their house is normal outside. The perfect normal American home. Right down to the post box. Inside however their home is a gothic haven. It’s almost eerie in a good way. It’s Halloween every day in this house. His mother lets me in where I find him lounging on the sofa. He smiles to me warmly and I sit beside him. He hooks his arm around me gently.
“Hey Cully babe …”
“You love me, don’t you?”
“Love? Love’s big.”
“Yeah and …”
“We shouldn’t really fall in love in my line of duty.”
“So that’s what it is? You do but you’re scared I’ll get hurt?”
“This can’t last Cully though so there’s no point in me getting that close.”
“Can’t last?!”
“My mum fell in love. He was human and he was almost killed by a vampire. I vowed never to let that happen.”
“Oh Trenton, let me make that decision. Let me decide about my own life.”
“I can’t let you.”
“Well I am making it anyway.”
“No. Listen, I’d break up with you quicker.”
“What? No, don’t do that. Please don’t do that.”
“Well what choice are you leaving me with?”
“I never knew your dad was human.”
“He isn’t.”
“What? But you said …”
“Before my dad.”
“Oh. But I can’t live without you. I’d rather die without you.”
“You only feel that way. You have your whole life in front of you. You will fall in love for real …”
“I have.”
“Stop Cully please. You need to just stop this right now. I can’t let you do that.”
“I’m sorry but I’m in too deep now.”
“Don’t say that. That’s exactly what I wanted to avoid.”
We stay quiet but soon our quiet is replaced by the glass from the window breaking. Suddenly I feel teeth on my neck and Trenton shouting frantically and pulling him roughly off.
“Gabe, stop! He’s my boyfriend. He’s out of bounds!”
“I’m sorry Trenton. I’m just so thirsty.”
“This is my cousin Cully.”
His cousin holds out his hand for me to shake. I stay frozen with my eyes wide with fear.
“I won’t hurt one of our own.”, Gabe said.
I tentatively shook hands with him.
“I was just telling him about the man my mum loved before dad …”
“We have struggles with them.”
“Why?”
“Because they see themselves as pure vampires unlike us. You see our family became vampires when my great great grandfather gave up his human existence for the love of my great great grandmother.”
“Oh so you weren’t a real vampire?”
“Well I always was. Gabe always was. But generations ago our family was human.”
“Oh.”, I say again.
I am so naive to everything to do with their world.
“You see if they knew I was connected to you then you would be in danger too. Do you understand now why I can’t afford to fall in love with you?”
“I love you though and that means that for better or worse I’ll take everything on that’s part of your world. Do you understand that?”
“This situation isn’t as black and white as that.”
“To me it is.”
He says nothing more. I didn’t know it at the time but it was the last time I was going to see him for years. The next time I went over to see him the family was gone.

More soon! Have a great Halloween everyone! 🙂

My Boyfriend Is A Vampire Part 1!

Wake up, wake up!”, came his familiar voice.

I could wake but I stayed asleep needing a few moments away from this madness that I had got myself into. Well this madness that he had got me into really. At the start it had been exciting. Almost an adventure really. How many high school boys get the chance to date a vampire? Or get to enter his home? Or fall in love with a vampire? There’s the big one there. The stumbling block. Never fall in love with the vampire. By all means roll with the punches, enjoy the adventure, get some great stories to tell the grandkids but do not fall in love with the vampire! When you do, then you can’t leave. You are stuck. It’s no longer just a want for fun. It becomes a need for love. To continue having them and their love in your life. Then you get knocked out by a werewolf.

Cully, wake up.”, he says, his voice full of fear.

I decide that I best not scare him anymore. I can’t bare to scare to him and hearing the trembling fear in his voice is killing me. But it doesn’t mean that I’m not fuming with him. I open my eyes. In response he holds me close to him tightly. He has this weird hug where there is a perfect balance of both tenderness and roughness. Though I know he doesn’t mean to be rough. It’s just he has so much strength. It’s automatic. He’s been thought that he has to be strong. From a very young age in fact by this father and his grandfather. Comes with the territory of been a vampire. You need to be both alert and tough. I just wish someone had told me that to be a vampire’s other half one also needs to tough and alert!

Oh thank god your alive.”, he said in glee.

Well it’s no thanks to you!”, I find myself saying before I can stop myself.

Cully …”, he begins with his eyes looking hurt.

No, I don’t have to curb what I feel. Not any longer. Trenton you never warned me how hard this would be when we got together!”

Well I couldn’t.”

Couldn’t?! More like wouldn’t!”

I didn’t think you would want anything to do with me if you knew the truth of what my life entailed.”

Pretty damn selfish that!”

He shrugged his shoulders.

I won’t deny that but it’s your own fault for been so goddamn wonderful. And super hot to boot.”

Despite my anger I begin to smile. He has done it again. He’s charmed me again! He always does. I should really stop trying to fight his charm at this stage. I’m too weak to it. Sensing that he may be back in my good books he takes hold of my hand and helps me to my feet.

Come on I’ll take you for a coffee. It’s not every day that a werewolf almost knocks you unconscious!”

Maybe it is though in your world””, I laugh.

Well not with me! In fact I can totally take on any werewolf! Or any creature, demon or spirit for that matter!”

Oh how very macho of you!”, I giggle playfully and we kiss softly.

I love you Trenton.”

I know. Come on. Let’s get that coffee.”

Though stung by the fact that he didn’t say it back I continue to walk with him to the café holding hands.

At the café I can feel that something is weighing on his mind heavily. I’m instantly worried. Is he going to dump me? Is that why he brought me to sit down?!

Trenton, are you alright?”

Yeah.”, he replies unconvincingly while shifting in his chair uncomfortably.

Babe …”, I begin.

He bangs the table hard with his fist startling me.

You can never leave it, can you?!”
“How can I leave it?! You never put me in the loop!”

He sighs and takes my hand in his gently.

I’m sorry Cully. Baby, I didn’t mean to scare you. It’s just that you don’t understand this world. It’s dangerous.”

I can handle it.”

Cully you can’t.”

Let me decide that.”, I say indignantly.

Baby, I’m not trying to insult you. I know you are a strong, brave man but this is not your world …”

I want you to let me into your world. You shut me out all the time …”

I’m trying to protect you.”

I know that but I’m trying to tell you that I don’t need protection.”

I know but that doesn’t matter because I won’t let anything happen to you. I would never forgive myself.”

Why?”, I ask hoping that he will say it is because he loves me but knowing that that isn’t what he will say.

Because you’re a human. Your vulnerable in my world. I brought you into my world. If anything happens to you it’s my fault.”

Not because …”, I begin but trail off.

I had been about to say not because he loved me. His eyes bore into me. I can tell that he knows what I was about to say and I stare at the table to avoid his gaze.

Of course it’s because I care about you too but that goes without saying Cully.”

Care about me?! Care about me?! I feel like shouting that my one and only mate David cares about me and that I want so much more from him but of course I don’t. I’m weak to him. I’m scared that he’ll find me too clingy. Too needy. And that he’ll run a mile and I love him too much to let that happen. So I sit as always with a fixed smile upon my face.

That’s good. I care about you too.”

He looks uncomfortable.
