I walked grumpily my way back to the boy's dormitory. It was stupid the way Bill had reacted! If those stupid rocks weren't that important, why did he took so much care of them?!
"I can't believe he's my uncle." I muttered to myself as I got to the room I shared with Ryan. I threw myself to the bed, remembering the days when I slept at night, ate human food, lived with mom and got bullied by other kids. Now I drank blood, slept in the day, visited mom once every month and knew a lot of junior bats. I even had friends and two friendly uncles.
I felt like returning to my old life.
Next morning, I wasn't speaking to Bill. And he was ignoring me and Tom. Tom was speechless and didn't bothered on speaking to Bill.
I decided to talk to Tom.
"Sometimes Bill stresses me out of my skin." I told him while walking through a staircase. Tom blew smoke from his cigarette and kept quiet for a while.
"He shouldn't had reacted that way." I kept on, "I mean, maybe there is something important b
My name is Dana Listing ch.10The next morning, dad and I were in the airport, waiting for our flight to Dromanny. I sat on the floor, near dad. I closed my eyes and remembered when I came from my island. I had on a violet dress and leather-worn out sandals. Massani (mrs.) Laimm was driving me by the wrist and reminding me of behaving "Or I'll smack you so hard you won't have teeth 'til you 98, girl!". Dad was standing there, with a Chinese lady. I remember shaking as Massani Laimm practically pushed me in front of dad. Dad smiled and said my name. I was so shocked that I just stared a him wide-eyed. He then went forward and hugged me.Tightly.
I remember that he and the lady talked with Massani Laimm and then she just left with the Chinese lady. My ticket to Dromanny, Mrs. Laimm, had just left. Dad kept hugging me, but I let tears flow freely.
"C'mon. Our flight arrived." dad said as he stood up. I stood up too and grabbed my luggage. We got in the plane and sat on the seats.
"Where we landing?" I asked
Light in a Tunnel ch.7"What is in the jar, Bill?"
"W-who are you?" the junior bat stuttered.
"Allow me to present myself. I am Jaime Gómez, but you can call me Taboo." I said, bowing a little.
"What is your name?" I asked
"What do you care?" he snapped, pretending to be tough.
"Oh, excuse me...descendant."
"Get out! How do you know I'm the descendant?"
"I didn't knew." I said, happy to have confused the junior bat. He blinked twice and looked to the door.
"Ok...you're that guy who escaped to prison, right?" he asked. I nodded.
"Why are you here?" he asked again.
"I came for you." I answered.
I was confused. He came for ME?!
"You killed a vampire. I can't come with you." I told him. Taboo shrugged.
"I never killed anybody. That was Gerard. I just sabotaged. And I had to kidnap too. But I've never spilled blood." he said.
"But you have a knife." I pointed out. At the same time, out of thecorner of my eye, I saw a heavy encyclopedia. Concentrating, I lifted it with my finger.
"I had to pass through fl
Light in a Tunnel ch.6"Fights and the person in the seniors' library"
A week had passed since we found out that the prisoners had escaped. All students in the Vladelik Academy were forbidden to leave the castle, and it was nearly impossible to be alone one second. First of all, all senior vampires had a pre-senir or junitor bat to take care of. That meant that you'd NEVER be alone. Second of all, was the fear.
Ryan was assigned to Gustav, Lulu to Monique (Sybille's friend) and I was assigned to Bill.
"It's good it was that way." Bill thought ou loud while letting smoke from his tobaco cigarette float freely.
"Why?" I asked
"Because I was able to take care of you and teach and adapt you to this world last year, remember? It'll be easier."
"What if those guys are still free for years?"
"Let's say I'll be your baby-sitter until you're 18 years old."
We were sitting in the seniors' common room, the safest place now besides the professors' rooms. Some vampires were drinking, others reading, others t

"I heard that Tab and Gerard made it..." the vampiress whispered softly.
"They did. They are in Rooden already." the vampire told her
"How do you know?" the vampiress asked again as she moved her silky, straight, black hair to the side.
"Gerard contacted me some hours ago. He said he found a scavenger, a strong one." her nephew answered. He had a bronze tone of skin, hair just like his aunt's and black, big eyes. She smiled and told him,
"Run along and tell him that I'll look for the vampire's descendant. You have been a lot of help for me today." he bowed and left.
The werepup grabbed a pebble and threw it hard. It landed right in Gerard's face.
"I'll-" he began furiously, grabbing a bigger rock.
"Wait." I muttered, grabbing his forearm. After waiting for a reaction, I saw another figure behind him. It was a werewoman, small for her age. She had long, blonde hair and blond , pointy dog ears and a pointy nose. Her sharp, light blue eyes scaned everywhere, and then
My name is Dana Listing ch.9Joshua was smiling at me in such a cute way...! His green eyes, his clean skin, his black-night hair...He was handsome!
"Who is he?" A voice from behind me asked. I turned around and saw Tom looking at me with arched eyebrows and his arms crossed.
"He is the son from the Black Eyed Peas' singer." I said. Tom asked something to Joshua. Probably Tom spoke english, because Joshua answered him.
Tom nodded and walked away.
I felt Josh's hand in mine, and he gently guided me to the backyard.
"Who your age?" he asked in a German worse than mine.
"I am 13" I said. He frowned slightly, so I grabbed a napkin and a pen that I had in my pocket. I wrote the number and showed it to him. He nodded and grabbed the pen from my hand and wrote the number '14'. I smiled. We were almost the same age!
I watched as Josh wrote something in the napkin. The words in english looked a lot like in German, so it was easy to guess.
He wrote something like, 'Where were you baby?'. That meant, 'Where were you born?'
Light in a tunnel ch.4"Hank's nightmare"
I opened my eyes widely. Jumping out of bed, I ran as swiftly as possible to Avril's room.
"Avie! Avie, wake up! Avie!" I pleaded as I shook her shoulder. She moaned and shoved me gently away. I bit her hand.
"Ow! Hank, what's your problem? It's 7 p.m!" she said
"I had a bad dream! A nightmare, Avie! Somebody bad will try to kill us!" I almost screamed. Avril shushed me down.
"There are other guests in this house! Hank, maybe it's just your imagination. I mean, remember when you had a dream where Georg threw you to a river and drowned? It's just a dream" she said
"Georg is very capable of doing it!" I protested. Avril turned on her table lamp and sat down.
"Sit here, next to me. Which was your dream?" she asked gently. I obeyed her and said,
"I dreamed that Deryck was very angry and that he told this weird guy where I and Drake were. And so the mean guy, he shook a stick that emerged from ashes, and immediately a lot of magical creatures tried to kill us!

I opened my eyes wearily to see dad shaking me slightly to wake me up from the hypnosis I had been on.
"Hey. There you go. Bill, are you alright?" dad asked as he stroked my head. I nodded and got up, walking away immediately.
"Thanks. I'd better go out." I said, intending to leave that room.
"No, Bill. You have to go and pack up." my Lord said
"Why, Lord?" I asked, turning around
"We need as many help as possible. Marion is looking for the descendants and for the scavengers. Now tell me, Bill: have you tried to kill Drake sometime?" dad asked. Tom looked at me, knowing what dad meant. I knew too, and so did Ermon.
"...Once, last year. I just felt like...letting his blood run down...wanted to tear him up with my hands...wanted to see him cry for mercy..." I said, breathing low and hard again. Ermon turned away, not bearing to listen to his brother say ways of killing his son. Dad's eyes glistened, however.
"Marion will try to use you t

"You think we lost them?" Gerard asked as we slowed down.
"Hope so." I said in a hoarse voice. Gerard stumbled by my side and fell down. For the first time ever, I saw him smiling. I sat down.
"Ah man. I missed sleeping in the grass. The last time I slept outside was before Marion died. Remember?" he asked, closing his eyes.
"Yeah I do. Your hair was black." I said looking around to make sure no orcs were near.
"And your hair was short." he answered.
"There ain't nothing wrong with long hair." I said while I grabbed a part of my long, black hair. Suddenly, I felt shudders and tingling in my backbone.
"The Scavengers are awake." I announced
"That isn't the only thing. Listen." Gerard whispered, sitting up. Instead of listening, I started sniffing. A foul, humid, fishy smell invaded my nose.
"Orcs!!" I muttered, scared. Gerard got up and said,
"Let's go to the nearest town! An elf village, or a Centaur community! Now!"
"Elves would turn us away and cen
