“ By the way” Annabelle said as she touched the silver
neck chain around his neck. “ What’s this?”
“Oh this?” he replied. “A gift from my grandfather. Got it
for my birthday”
Annabelle narrowed her eyes as she played with the
silver ball and traced her index finger around the “W”.
Daniel caught the look on her face and raised his
“Any problem?” he asked.
“Not at all” she smiled at him. “It’s just that it looks so
beautiful and so unique”
“I know.” He replied. “ My granddad always had the best
taste in shopping. Well……except that time he
mistakenly bought me a ladies underwear when I was
11” he blushed in embarrassment at the horrific
Annabelle reared her head back and broke into fits of
laughter, gathering a bit of attention to their side. Most
of the people smiled and dismissed it as him trying to
flirt with her and they went back to their business. Soon
her laughter was reduced to giggles and she placed one
hand on his shoulder to steady herself.
“He did that?” she stifled another round of laughter.
“What in the world was he thinking?”
“Beats me” Daniel shrugged and chuckled. “ It’s one of
the most complicated errors I’ve ever seen”
“I could have imagined the look on your face when you
saw it” she smiled
“Please don’t remind me” he scoffed, looking away.
The DJ had put in a popular song and excused himself.
Everyone lit up and began to dance vigorously to the
beat, although the teenagers kept the groping to a
minimum due to the presence of adults at the party.
Jake and Tomiwa started a dance of their own and
Segun asked Sharon to dance with him which she
reluctanctly accepted due to the fact that he was not
the one on her mind. She would have asked Daniel
except for the fact that he was currently …….. ‘Busy’
“Come on” Annabelle cried out joyously as she held
Daniel’s hand and dragged him to the dance floor. “This
is my favorite song”
“I’ll say” he laughed at her childish excitement. He once
again had to marvel at this girl. She was really one of a
kind. One moment she would act bold and intimidating,
the next moment she would act childish, then before he
knew it she would act all seductive(That one gave him
the shivers). But all in all, she was like a rare gem. He
decided at that moment that he was going to treasure
“Dan” she piped and he blinked back to reality. “I called
your name like thrice, now.”
“Sorry” he smiled as he watched her move her waist in
tune to the song. “Was thinking”
“About me?” she teased with a wink.
“You wish” he smiled shyly, a pink blush staining his
“Aww” she pouted and poked his nose. “ You don’t
have to hide it, you know. Your face tells a different
He stuck out his tongue at her and she giggled.
“Stick that tongue out again” she smiled wickedly “ And
I’ll bite it”
“That was so dirty!!” his eyes widened at her naughty
“I know” she whispered.
He was about to fire a weapon of his one when he
noticed a new set of people enter the house. They were
about 18 in number and they all wore suits and
sunglasses, with serious expressions on their faces.
Three of them were women, while the majority were
men. Annabelle noticed the direction of his eyes and
followed it. She raised an eyebrow as she saw the
unfamiliar people begin to split ways and spread around
the dancers. Eric who was coversing with his mother by
the door of the house noticed the strangers and raised
an eyebrow in suspicion. The atmosphere suddenly felt
tense and only three people noticed the change.
“Who are those people?” Annabelle wondered aloud,
slowing her dancing.
“I don’t know” Daniel frowned. “ Security, maybe?”
“ Why would Sharon’s Parents need these much
security?” Annabelle was confused. “ are they
anticipating an attack?”
“I don’t get it either” Daniel shrugged.
“By the way” She turned to him. “ I arranged a meeting
with an old friend of mine. She stays in Ghana and she
is into researching. If what those men said in the
hospital that day concerning Luke is true, then she can
be of use to us.”
“You heard everything we discussed?” Daniel had a
“I’m a vampire? Super hearing? Remember ?” she
looked at him with a ‘duh’ expression on her face.
“Oh yeah” he laughed nervously. “Forgot about your
powers. Your friend, she’s a vampire too?”
Annabelle nodded. “ The one who taught me to control
my bloodlust and channel it to animals. I was a mess
after Chris turned me. Physically and emotionally” she
added with a laugh. “But I met her and made the silly
mistake of trying to attack her but she gave me a
beating I could never forget.”
“After which, she taught me a lot. How to control my
emotions, abstain, yada yada yada. I owe her a lot. So
don’t worry, She wont harm you. The only thing I need
to think about now is how we can get to Ghana. Money
is not the issue. She can handle that. The issue is how
Jake and Tomiwa can come along because trust me, if
they find out you and I are travelling, you know the rest.
Then there’s your mom…”
“ She wont be a problem” Daniel smiled. “ As long as
I’m not staying for long, she wouldn’t mind and as long
as she believes those hunters are on guard. It’s fair to
her. I could leave granddad to keep her company and
negotiate with Ted to guard the house. Then maybe
Simon and Tony could come along. As for Jake and
tomiwa, they are witty. They will surely find a way to
leave their houses.”
She thought for a moment and then smiled at him. “ I
believe they will”
“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!” They were startled by a
feminine voice coming from the DJ’s table. Feminine?
And why did that voice sound so familiar? They glanced
towards the table and to their shock, they saw Angela
behind the mic!!
“Sh*t!!” Daniel cursed. “ What is she doing here?”
“This is bad” Annabelle frowned and glared towards
Angela. Angela looked in their direction and a demonic
smile appeared on her face. Jake and Tomiwa had
stopped dancing and they stood in shock at the sight of
the person who was acting as the DJ. Jake swallowed
in fear as he knew trouble was looming somewhere.
Tomiwa’s emotions were a mixture of fear and anger.
How could she show her face here and just what was
she scheming now. Whatever it was they had to be on
their guard now.
“Now I know you are surprised to see me as you were
expecting your DJ. but he is currently..indisposed”
Angela smirked slyly at the last word. “ Now the theme
of this party is called “PAYBACK” and with that being
said, permit me to say…” She paused and smiled to the
strangers in suits and then winked at them “Dinner is
All hell broke loose as the strangers removed their
shades to reveal glowing red eyes and bared their
fangs. Before one could blink, they charged and attacked
the nearby dancers. Chaos ensued as people started
running helter skelter, amidst screams. A full fight began
as Eric ushered his mother into the house and closed
the door. He turned to the melee in front of him and
brought out his gun. Running towards them, he shot a
vampire who charged towards him. The bullet went
through his heart and he collapsed on the floor before
dissolving to ash. Another one tried sneaking on him but
he was the faster and smarter of the two. Reaching into
his suit, he pulled out a stake and swiftly turned and
threw it into the vampire’s heart.
Meanwhile Sharon was cornered by two female
vampires. She stood in fear as they advanced towards
her. Snarls were heard from their mouths and hungry
expressions were on their faces.
“Someone, help me” she whimpered as tears appeared
at the corners of her eyes. Before the vampires could
move, they suddenly groaned in pain and gasped as
wooden stakes were put through their hearts from
behind. They collapsed and dissolved into ash and
Sharon opened her eyes wide at the sight of her hero..
or rather heros. Standing where the vampires stood
previously, were Daniel and Eric holding stakes. The two
males removed their eyes from Sharon and stared at
each other. For a moment , none said anything as both
were stunned by each other’s newly discovered
prowess. A scream interrupted the moment and Eric
took off. Daniel turned to Sharon.
“Get into the house” he growled and she was taken
aback. She had never that look on his face. She was to
scared and confused to argue, so she nodded and ran
into the house. Daniel threw his stake towards a
vampire who leaped towards her and it went through
In the chaos that ensued, Jake and Tomiwa had
separated from the crowd and stood by the pool
watching in horror at the sight before them. A lot of
people had been slaughtered and there was blood
everywhere. Daniel and Annabelle were holding out on
their own and soon, the vampires had reduced to four.
“Long time no see” A low voice came behind them and
they turned around to see Angela smiling. Before they
could move, her smile disappeared and with a deadly
frown on her face, she pushed forward and kicked Jake
with a force that sent him into the pool.
“ Jake!” Tomiwa cried out towards the pool but a hand
grabbed her at the back of her neck and spun her
around to meet the cold eyes of Angela.
“You have bigger problems, sweetie” She snarled.
With incredible strength, she lifted tomiwa and tossed
her into a pile of plastic chairs. Tomiwa crashed into
them and landed on her shoulders. She cried out
painfully and struggled to her feet, clutching her waist.
“Hmm” Angela smiled as she catwalked towards the
other girl. “ I could kill you right now but that wouldn’t
be Interesting. Why don’t we have a little fun before I
put you out of your misery”
Tomiwa cried out and charged towards the smiling
Angela. She threw a punch to her face and it connected
but , the impact did nothing to Angela’s face. Instead,
Tomiwa’s fist suffered the damage as there was a
sickening crack of bones. Tomiwa screamed in pain as
she held her broken fingers.
“Tsk Tsk Tsk” Angela shook her head and kicked tomiwa
on the stomach, the impact sent her flying ad hitting her
back on the nearby generator before dropping to the
ground in a groaning mess.
Meanwhile Jake had managed to swim out of the pool
just in time to see his girlfriend brutalized. He looked
around and his eyes caught it: A wooden plank. Having
recovered from the hospital, he was given complete
details about vampires and he knew what that meant.
He picked up the plank and broke it into two , creating a
pointed end to both planks. He dropped one and slowly
advanced towards the unsuspecting angela who had
“Well. You put up a fight” Angela smiled tracing a finger
along Tomiwa’s cheek, making her shiver in fear. “ Even
though it was pathetic.” She tore the top of Tomiwa’s
shirt to expose her neck. Tomiwa’s eyes went wide as
she knew what Angela was going to do next.
“Any last words?” Angela grinned as her eyes turned red
and her canines became elongated. Her smile suddenly
disappeared and was replaced with a scream of pain as
Jake drove the wooden impromptu stake with force into
her heart from behind. He held on to the stake as she
stopped her screaming
She gasped as she felt the oxygen slowly leave her
system. Tomiwa wriggled out from under her and
crouched in front of her.
“Yes, there is” She smiled. “If you want to kill someone,
do it. Don’t just stand there talking about it ”
She nodded towards Jake and drove the stake further
until it came out from her chest. A loud shrilling scream
was heard as she collapsed and burnt into ashes.
