“148….149..…150!!” Eric grunted as he pushed himself
from the ground, completing his workout: 150 pushups.
He cracked his neck to get the kinks away as sweat
rolled down his muscular body. He was currently in his
gym at home and it was in the early hours of the
morning. 5:00AM to be precise. Usually he wasn’t used
to getting up this early until it was 6 AM, but things had
been different of recent. Since the weeks that passed
since the attack on Sharon’s house, he had been more
occupied with vampire extermination but it seemed to
be more frustrating as they seemed to just multiply. Kill
one, Two appear the next day. Kill three, Seven appear.
Kill ten, twenty five appear. It was turning to be one
heck of a headache and it seemed to be affecting him
emotionally. At work, he kept to himself and most times
he was brooding and preferred to be left alone. Some of
his female colleagues who had tried vying for his
attention saw the red signal from him and were wise
enough to read it and back off. Then there was that
young one, Daniel. Twice that they interacted, at the
hospital and at Sharon’s house, Eric couldn’t help but
feel that he had seen him before or maybe they must
have had a kind of connection somewhere. If Eric
wasn’t mistaken, the look on Daniel’s face told the
same story. And then the skills he portrayed in
butchering those vampires. That kid was way too good
for someone of his age, Eric mused.
He wiped his face with a towel and left the gym. On
entering his bedroom, he paused and surveyed the
room. Despite his part time dirty job of killing vampires
and staining himself with their blood, he was a neat
freak His bedroom was well arranged and smelled of air
freshner. His bed was well tucked and his dressing
mirror was spotless and shone brightly. His clothes
hung neatly by the closet, majority of them being suits
and there was a box under where the suits hung,
containing various vampire slaying weapons. On his
bedside table were two pictures in frames. The first
frame was a picture of him and his late fiancée whose
death drove him on this vicious quest. They stood
together with her in front of him and him wrapping his
arms around her waist. There had bright and happy
smiles on their faces, the happiest he had ever been.
The second picture frame contained him and his mother,
The picture was taken many years ago when Eric was a
few years old. He sat on her lap and there was a lollipop
in his mouth. His mother smiled and held him tenderly
as they posed for the camera. Eric chuckled as he
remembered the first time his fiancée, saw this
particular picture and teased him endlessly on how
adorable he looked. He ran his fingertips along the
picture mainly on his mom’s face.
“Despite our differences of late” Eric sighed. “ You are
all I have left, Mother”
He left the table and was about to hit the shower to get
ready for work when his phone rang.
“At this time?” he pondered as he picked up the phone.
It was one of his comrades in the vampire slaying
business, John. John happened to be the same person
who trained him in the art and gave him various
information concerning the whereabouts of the
“Hello, John” Eric spoke. “What’s up?”
“Eric” John replied at the other end. “ You sound quite
energetic. I take it, you have been awake for a while
“Yeah” Eric replied, running his hands through his hair. “
I was about to take a shower. Any problem?”
“I would be lying if I said there wasn’t” John replied
and Eric could detect the seriousness in his voice.
“What’s the matter?” Eric was more attentive now.
“I got news from Ghana” John replied. “ Our guys over
there have discovered something there. And we might
want to be careful over here. This something is a
creature that might prove to be deadlier than vampires”
“What is it?” Eric’s ears perked up as he heard that.
“It’s a werewolf” John replied.
Eric’s eyes went wide. It couldn’t be!!
“That’s impossible” Eric almost cried out. “ Werewolves
are a myth. A false legend. Nothing more. Those guys
can’t be serious. They must have seen something
“Eric” John interrupted, surprisingly calm. “ I don’t think
they would give me that information if they weren’t sure
of it. Besides, we also believed that vampires never
existed, you know how that turned out. If vampires have
been discovered, then there should not be any surprise
on the appearance of werewolves”
“Did they give details on the appearance of it?” Eric
sighed in frustration as he could feel an incoming
headache. Just when things couldn’t get any worse.
“They said it was brown. About 8 feet tall and it’s eyes
were green or so. The baffling thing is that it made no
attempt to attack them” John said.
“That’s odd” Eric blinked in confusion. “How do we
know if it’s not in league with the vampires?”
“That, I can’t say” John replied. “ Although, judging
from folklore, an alliance of a vampire and werewolf was
as close to impossible. If anything, there was always
bloody battles between the two with we, innocent
humans caught in the crossfire.” He chuckled.
Eric said nothing as a thoughtful frown appeared on his
“But the thing is” John cleared his throat. “ If one had
been sighted over there in Ghana , there is a 99.9%
possibility we would be seeing more of them here. I
believe it’s time to add another weapon to our arsenal.
You know what it is.”
“Silver” Eric growled as a scowl appeared on his face.
“What could have happened now?” Tomiwa said
worriedly as the four walked around the bushy pathway
in near Tisha’s house. So far, luck was against them as
they were confused on the whereabouts of corpse of
their fallen friend.
“I just hope nobody got their hands on him” Jake
growled as he walked by her, With the two vampires
leading the way. Annabelle clenched her crossbow
tightly enough to make it break if she added a little
more ounce of force. She was breathing heavily as her
face was twisted with rage. Whoever stole his body was
in one world of hell. Her eyes began to turn red and her
movements were more brisque. A hand was placed on
her shoulder and she looked sideways to see Tisha
staring at her.
“Annabelle,” Tisha gave her a disapproving look.
“Don’t start with me Tisha” Annabelle glared back, her
eyes glowing in the dark. “You think I’m going to
pretend that all is well when his body is nowhere to be
“I know you have a right to be angry” Tisha said softly.
“ We all do, but right know you need to suppress it. You
will scare the two behind us if they see that look on
Annabelle sighed as she knew her friend had a point. As
furious as she was, she didn’t need to risk scaring the
only other humans who had learnt to trust her. She
closed her eyes and slowly inhaled. When she opened
them again, they were back to normal. Tisha smiled and
squeezed her shoulder softly. They were now far from
her home now and they entered a small clearing in the
forest. Annabelle looked up and noticed the full moon
was covered with clouds. She glanced at her watch and
saw that it was 4:30 am. This definitely meant the sun
would be out in a few hours
“Well well well, boys. look what we have here” A creepy
voice came from the darkness of the forest, making the
group almost jump in fright. Jake and Tomiwa quickly
huddled and stood by Annabelle and Tisha while they
held their weapons in alert.
“SHOW YOURSELF!!” Tisha cried out in anger as she
glanced around. For a while nothing could be heard,
then all of a sudden, 8 pairs of red eyes glowed in the
darkness surrounding the four people. Tomiwa shrieked
in fright as she saw the eyes and stayed close to Jake
who was trying to compose him self.
Suddenly the owners of the eyes emerged into the light.
They were about eight men and they looked menancing.
They surrounded the four and they had evil smiles on
their faces. Their leader who was the largest wore a
black tank top and a toothpick hung out of his lips. His
hair was cropped and his face was a deathly white with
ominous red eyes. He glanced at Jake and Tomiwa and
his smile became wider.
“You know” he spoke to the two female vampires. “It’s
not good to waste food. Especially when they happen to
be quite…delicious” he licked his lips at the humans
making them cringe in fear.
“Back off!!” Annabelle snarled pointing the crossbow at
him. He shook his head in laughter.
“Come on” he said. “If you don’t want them, at least let
us have a taste. Besides, there are eight of us and four
of you. You are outnumbered two to one. Do you think
you are fast enough to take us out before we can reach
the two of them?”
Annabelle knew he had a point. Even if she shot one or
two, there were still six more and to make matters
worse, they weren’t humans. She knew this was a
losing battle but still….
“I would rather die than let you lay your filthy hands on
them” she gritted her teeth and clenched her crossbow
“That can be arranged” The man replied dryly and then
snapped his hands to the rest of his crew “Boys. get
Jake and Tomiwa gasped in fear as they began to
advance at once. Annabelle pointed her crossbow at
one, but before she could shoot, something stunning
Four wooden arrows whistled simultaneaously out of
the darkness and penetrated four of the rogues
accurately by their skulls. They collapsed and burned to
“What the hell?” Annabelle and the rogue leader said
simultaneously. Before anyone had time to react, a large
stake flew in from nowhere and penetrated one by the
heart and two more arrows destroyed the remaining
two, leaving the leader. Everyone was stunned as they
couldn’t detect where the arrows and weapons were
coming from. The leader turned away in fright and
disappeared into the bush only to be heard screaming in
pain. All was silent and the group held their breath. All
of a sudden, his decapitated head flew in from the bush
and landed in front of the group.
“OH MY GOD!!” Tomiwa screamed in horror.
Soon, they heard approaching footsteps from the
darkness. Everyone stood at alert as they waited. The
footsteps drew nearer and a figure emerged into the
light. Everyone was stunned as the familiar figure stood
facing them with a cocky smile and a cross bow in his
hand. He balanced his crossbow on his shoulder and
put his other hand in his pocket. The familiar white
bloodstained turtleneck moving softly their usual
“DANIEL?!!” They cried out simultaneously.
“In the flesh and blood” he winked.
