Inescapable 

  (The Premonition #1)

by

My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me--my freshman year of college. I had been hoping that once I had arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that I've been having would go away. It hasn't.

I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I'm grounded...sane. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he is near, I feel an attraction to him--a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you're thinking...that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would--if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I'm the worst thing that's ever happened to Crestwood...or him. But, get this, for some reason every time I turn around he's there, barging into my life.

What is the secret he is keeping from me? I'm hoping that it is anything but what I expect: that he is not exactly normal...and neither am I. So maybe Crestwood won't be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I have been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is...inescapable.



MY TEASER:

 His voice sounds like silk, but there is something very wrong with it. It’s echoing and shifting within my mind, making it seem to go on, like whispering hisses that linger even after his lips stop moving and his breath no longer tickles my hair. A small shiver of fear slips down my spine as every hair on the nape of my neck stands straight up in that moment. Stepping back and looking at his exquisite face, I see an air of expectation in his eyes.

 SOME VAMP FACTS:
  1.  All major vampire literature works were published in the 1800's
  2.  Vampirism does actually exist - Porphyria is a rare, metabolic disorder which stops those affected from producing Haemoglobin. Causing the affected to be sensitive to sunlight, gums recede and teeth become prominent. 
  3. The legends date back to creatures of Hebrew mythology to the one named "Lillith," Adam's first wife. She was known to drink the blood of the first born.
  4. The Hungarians also named a restless corps, Nosferatu, which in 1443 meant "the undead."
  5. Other ancient races also had legends of similar mythical creatures - The Egyptian's - Lillith /  Babalonian'sThe winged Ekimu / Greeks - Lamia (a beautiful woman who drank blood) / Ther Romans - a blood thirsty demon called "Strager."
  6. The vampire legends also stem back to the fourteenth century to the Black Plague, where villagers blamed the undead for the cause of the plague.

 HERE IS MY ENTRY, I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT!

 Misguided Trust
by Carolyn Brown
(293 words)

Driving along the dark roads towards the old Farrow’s farm, Cassie asked, “Julie, tell me why are we meeting the boys here?”

“Don’t be a baby Cassie. Josh and Paul are meeting us for Halloween, get into the spirit.” she answered with a twisted smile.

They continued their drive in silence.

“This is it Cassie, pull up near the jack-o-lantern.” Julie pointed to the right side of the drive.  “Josh’s car is parked behind the shed, do you see it?”

Leaving the car, both girls moved towards the shed. The house and surrounding yard was in complete darkness, but Cassie, prepared for every eventuality found a flashlight in her handbag.

Opening the door, Julie felt a sticky cobweb attached itself to her and screamed!  She removed the silky strands from her hair, as the torch light allowed them to see inside the room, enabling them to discover a cauldron mounted on bricks, a pile of timber waiting to be lit, stacked beneath it.

Cassie was first to notice the coldness of the room and mentioned it to Julie, who nodded and pulled her hoodie tighter to her body. Cassie screamed, dropped the torch and plunged the shed into darkness. Had she seen a ghost sweep past them?  Bending to search for the flash light, Cassie felt the sharp edge of a blade slice across her throat.

Looking up, Julie was standing over her, an old fashioned razor in her hand. She realized the blade had cut her throat when she felt warm sticky blood congeal on her skin. Terrorized, she tried to scream for help!

 “If you think Josh and Paul will help you, you’re sadly mistaken; you will find them floating inside the cauldron. Don’t worry, you will be joining them soon.”
