What We'll Do for Blood

Someone crouched on the ground.

They clung to something—a forearm, he realized.

Scott went cold and shivered. “Dad?”

The crouching figure turned and Maria’s shining eyes locked with his. Her mouth was covered in something dark that matched something on his father’s arm. For a second, Scott froze, watching her like she was a wild animal twice his size.

Maria stood up, her arms at her sides and her fingers splayed. A bolt of fear shot through his stomach until his bladder threatened to burst. He dropped the food. It landed with a weighty, crinkling thump that startled them both to life.

“Scotty,” she whispered, in the same slippery voice that had prickled the hairs on his neck.

Dry mouthed, Scott dashed for his bike.

Dark mass of curly, beautiful black hair, flipped onto one shoulder. She sits up tall. She smells like spring.

Interested in everything around her, she gives me her full attention. "Talk to me," she says, like I'm about to tell her something fascinating.

Awestruck, I whisper her name. "Stay," I say, and my voice cracks with my begging.

She knows me. Her smile tells me she knew what I was going to say.

What I've been saying for the past few weeks.

She leans in, touches my knee.

Then she gets up, and starts running.
