I Will Not Tell
Chapter 2: I Lead a False Life
I live in a 2 bedroom house on 12 acres of lands surrounded by woods. Like I said before, I am Joseph and I like to keep to myself. Work, relax, sleep and repeat. I have blond hair but it used to be dark brown. I always had a goatee but now I remain clean shaven. In some ways I remain in hiding but at the same time I have moved on and although I am single, I feel safe and content with my current state of affairs. I do not share my tale with anyone for two reasons. Number one is that most people would not even believe me and number two is that the creatures are hunting me now to keep my silence.

My Name is...
Chapter 3: If They Find Me I Will Die!
I find myself waking in a deep sweat. I was reliving the moment I encountered Hades bedroom, if you will. When I made a sudden noise by accident, three or so vampires awakened and I took off running out of the cave and down the mountain as the vampires came out after me. In real life, obviously, I escaped but, in my dream I am caught, bitten and sucked completely dry of all my blood. I have had the same nightmare, off and on, for the last 5 years since escaping the wrath of the advancing monsters. It was made very clear, several times, that I had to be caught. I was hiding in a crevice on the side of a mountain and heard a few vampires talking as they searched for me. They were really clear that they did not want there only home disturbed and it was also they were the last 50 vampires remaining and they were now looking to expand. Before it was just about eating and drinking blood but expansion has been the topic of discussion in the vampire pit.

Chapter 4: Keeping Up Appearances
Fleeing the mountains wasn't easy and I barely survived. Running from these creatures was a challenge. I fell off the side of a cliff I was dangling from, after falling, and awoke in a hospital four days later. Upon my release from medical care, I boarded my plane for home and made some instant changes to my life which was really simple since I do not have any friends or family members. The most important aspect of my life was not just my appearance but the fact that life goes on and if it doesn't I will either look crazy or be spotted.

Chapter 5: I've Been Spotted
After a long day of driving (I had to tour several stores in my district), I pulled into a gas station and started pumping gas when I saw it. Out of the 40 plus vampires I saw that fateful day in Romania, 4 stood out because they were in hot pursuit of me when I originally fell from the cliff. One of those vampires spotted me but the gas station had lots of customers and a police officer in the store. I hurriedly got into my vehicle and took off. Looking in my rearview mirror I realized I was being tailed.

No Way Out
Chapter 9: Trapped
Sorry, I got off of topic. I could not go to work so I rushed to my house to grab some valuables but then I spotted a vampire in a black trench coat on top of my roof, squatting down. Upon seeing this I continued driving and left my subdivision. After driving about 20 miles I pulled off the interstate to a hotel parking lot. As I opened my car door, and to my shock and horror, a nasty, discolored vampire climbed out from underneath my automobile where he had hitched a 20 minute ride. I attempted to close my door but the beast grabbed the door and ripped it off the hinges and grabbed me by the neck, dragging me to the ground. After he let go, he then slapped me and it knocked me out cold.
If You Can't Beat Them...
When I came back to consciousness, I was in Transylvania, Romania in the humongous caved that was carved into the mountain. I was told that even though originally I was to be slaughtered and eaten, it has now been decided that I will now be bitten and the shackles removed. Once I convert to the underworld, I will return to Alabama and live a normal life. Until I get thirsty anyway. I woke up feeling really healthy and strong. I soon realized I was now a beast of the underworld myself. I was told to leave Romania and go to Alabama. I was trying to find flight information when I was informed to just fly on my own volition. I jumped off the mountain with no fear and started flying faster than an airplane. I know this because I zoomed past one own my way back to my somewhat normal life.
