The three of them were watching television. Body bags were being brought out of Sarah’s house. There also seemed to be innumerable police there.
“No wonder I can’t get anyone to come over if they’re all watching this! What few friends are left anyways…” Sarah complained.
“I’m hungry! And we’re out of blood.” Britney replied. Freya sighed.
“Well I told you this would happen.” Freya reminded them. “I’ll go somewhere and bring back some food.”
“Can’t we just order in. Like for some pizza and eat the guy that delivers it.” Britney suggested.
“Missing pizza guys are one way they could find us. It’s better if I just randomly grab someone off the streets.” Freya answered.
“Well if you’re going out, could you bring back some tequila as well?” Britney asked.
“Tequila? You don’t need tequila. You’re a vampire now for goodness sake.” Freya told her.
“Yeah, but I want some tequila.” Britney responded.
“I wouldn’t mind some too.” Sarah chimed in. Freya sighed again. Maybe I should just get in the car and drive off, Freya thought.
“Fine. Sarah, you come with me and get the tequila, and I’ll take care of the sustenance.” Freya decided.
“Wahoo! Tequila!” Britney exclaimed while doing her little tequila dance, which consisted of her gyrating her body as she sang the world tequila.
“Come on Sarah.” Freya said as she walked towards the door.
“What about me?” Britney asked.
“You just hold the fort.” Freya advised. Britney screwed up her nose.
“Fort? I thought this was an apartment.” Britney replied.
“It’s an expression.” Freya told her while wanting to repeatedly smack her head on the door. She left the apartment with Sarah following.
Outside Freya noticed a car sitting there she hadn’t seen before. When they got to their own car, Freya regarded it.
“Have you seen that car before?” Freya asked Sarah once they had both got in. Sarah shook her head.
“There are two men sitting in that car watching the building. We need to keep an eye on them.” Freya warned her. “We may have to leave this place very soon I suspect.”
“Okay.” Sarah replied. Freya started the car and they drove off. Sarah looked at the other car as they passed it. There seemed to be two men in that car, one older and one younger. Both wore glasses. They both glanced at her.
Once they got to an area with stores they parked the car. Sarah went to find some tequila, while Freya went in search of victims.
“Just get the tequila, no freelancing!” Freya advised. Sarah nodded.
A short time later Sarah came back with two large bottles of tequila. She saw that Freya had already brought back two people with her and was waiting. Sarah walked up to them. She wondered if the man and the woman waiting beside Freya had been charmed.
“This is Sarah.” Freya told the other two.
“Hi Sarah.” the man said. He was tall and had dark skin. “I’m Lewis.” Britney set the bottles down and then shook his hand. It was very warm.
“Hi Lewis.” Britney replied.
“Your hands are cold.” Lewis commented.
“It’s poor circulation.” Freya chipped in.
“So apparently we’re having a party! I see you’ve brought the drinks.” Lewis said smiling.
“Yep.” Sarah replied.
“And this is Sharlene.” Freya said. A short woman with long dark hair then shook Sarah’s hand. Her skin was very soft.
“Hi Sharlene.” Sarah said.
“Hi.” Sharlene replied, seeming rather shy.
“Now we all know each other, shall we get in the car?” Freya suggested.
“Sounds like a great idea.” Lewis replied.
They all got into the car and drove back to the apartment. Once they arrived, Freya parked the car behind the one she had noticed before. This time it was now empty. She sat there motionless for a short time and then turned to the others.
“I need to check something out. It might be nothing. Could you all wait in the car until I get back?” Freya asked.
“Sure, but don’t you need me?” Sarah asked. Freya shook her head.
“No, leave it to me.” She got out of the car and walked off in the direction of the apartment.
“What’s all this about?” Lewis asked after a time. Sarah turned around and looked at them both in the back seat. They both looked uncertain. She smiled at them.
“It’s nothing really. It’s just that there are two guys that have been harassing her, and she thinks they might be here.” Sarah explained. Lewis nodded thoughtfully.
“I can help if she needs it. It’s not a good idea for her to face two guys on her own.” Lewis commented. Sarah nodded and smiled at him again.
“It’s just a misunderstanding really. She won’t be in any danger.” Sarah replied. Not long after she said that there was an explosion of glass from above and Freya dropped to the ground. She suddenly got up and ran to the car, she then quickly got in and started the car up.
“We’ve really got to go!” Freya said as she put her foot on the accelerator and quickly drove off.
“What about Britney?” Sarah asked.
“They got her. I’m sorry.” Freya replied.
“Britney’s gone?” Sarah exclaimed. She felt tears beginning to fall down her face. “Not Britney!”
“Can I ask what’s going on? You fell down several floors and don’t have a scratch on you. And what do you mean Britney’s gone? Did they kill your friend? What sort of business are you two into?” Lewis asked in a panic. Sarah turned round gazed at him. “AND WHY IS SHE CRYING BLOOD?” This time he screamed.
“Be quiet.” Freya replied as they sped through the streets.
“Could you slow down please?” Lewis asked.
“Yeah let us out!” Sharlene suddenly screamed. She tried opening the door on her side but it was locked.
“Stop the car and let us out!” Lewis demanded. “I don’t want to know what you two are involved in and I don’t wished to be involved.” To everyone’s surprise Freya brought the car to a screeching halt.
“Please let us out.” Sharlene implored while sobbing and shaking uncontrollably. Freya turned round and grabbed her head. In an instant she snapped her neck and Sharlene fell lifelessly to the seat.
“MY GOD YOU’VE KILLED HER! LET ME OUT NOW!!!” Lewis screamed. Freya grabbed him and did the same. She then turned around and started the car up.
“Where are we going?” Sarah asked her.
“We’re leaving the city. At least we’ve got some food for the journey now.” Freya replied. She put her foot on the accelerator and they sped off down the dark streets again.
Sarah looked regretfully at the two bodies now slumped lifelessly on the back seat.

Previous chapters list: Dumb Vampires
It took a while for me to get around to continuing this story. At this stage it should only be around 15-16 chapters, but that said it may take longer to tell the story than I think it does, so for all I know it may end up being 20 or more chapters… You can never tell sometimes.
