Florence held hands with Alan as they neared the lake.
“Flor, I need to tell you…” He held his head.
“Are you okay? Do what to…”
“Fine,” he whispered menacingly. When Alan saw the disdain in her face, he said gently, “Just a headache.” His hands reached out to touch her face, but they withdrew after grazing it.
“Alan, you’re scaring me.” Florence cried.
“Scared of me?” He bared his teeth.
“What’s wrong with you?” A single tear dripped down her face as he bit her hand.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t want to. I… couldn’t stop myself.” Her vampire boyfriend ran from her.
