Part 33

Ryan was nervous all day long. He wished he hadn't agreed so quickly. He suddenly wanted to take it all back but he knew he couldn't. He had been waiting around later than usual trying to make sure noone was around when he grab the blood. It seemed like everytime he was about to make a move, he would see someone walk by or he would hear foot steps coming in that direction. So he stayed until he was sure he could make his move. He knew the people for the next shift wouldn't be in until the next hour, and the only people left there besides himself was Rebecca and Jason. They wouldnt be a problem because as soon as they got the chance they'd lock themselves in the office together. Everyone knew Jason and Rebecca were screwing, but he unfortunately heard it every day. Sometimes he got the feeling they wanted him to hear them. They were always loud. Sometimes it sounded as if they were tearing the room apart. Usually their reckless sexcapades annoyed him but tonight, he was glad and took full advantage of the fact that they'd be too busy to walk in and catch him. He had brought along his gym bag to carry it out in. He locked up and was on his way out the door when he saw Rebecca and Jason tripping over eachother, laughing as they stumbled out of the office. He didnt even think they noticed him. And even if they did, so what..the job was done. And they were none the wiser. As he slid into his ride he turned up the music in his truck. He felt a rush of adrenaline as he drove. He turned the music down and reached for his cell phone on his hip as he waited at the stop lights. He dialed Andrews number. Someone picked up on the 4th ring.


"Andrew? Ryan."

"Hey Ryan..I hope you got some good news for me buddy."

"As a matter of fact I do", Ryan said.

", we should meet soon."

"Yeah, thats why Im calling. Meet me at my place, Im on my way home now."

"Sure thing. I"ll leave now."

"Right. See you there."

Im on my way. And Ryan?"


"Thanks again."

"No problem.", Ryan said and he hung up the phone.

Part 32

Andrew and Ryan had talked all night about his situation with Tracy. He tried to fill in all of the gaps as much as possible. Ryan had seemed nervous, which was understandable but he took it alot better than he thought he would. Andrew felt a little guilty for not trusting his cousin enough to tell him about it from the beginning. He apologized over and over for shutting him out, but he knew he couldn't take it back. Ryan had left around 1 that morning. He needed to get some sleep before having to be to work at 10am. Ryan had agreed to take one bag of blood for them. He said he'd call them as soon as he got off from work at 6:30p.m. Andrew was exited, nervous and scared all at the same time. Tracy seemed happy. She had been dancing around the room since Ryan left. Talking a mile a minute about how good their lives could be together, all the things they could do. He'd drift off to sleep from time to time. He'd wake up and she'd still be talking.

"Shouldn't you be trying to get some rest", he asked her.

"Im too wired to rest."

"You should save your energy."

"If Ryan comes thru I wont have to worry about that anymore."

"Your right, if. I think you should put the celebration on hold until we know for sure if he can do it."

"Ok..I'll rest, for you. So you can stop worrying."

She laid her head on his chest and said, "I love you."

"I love you too baby".

He drifted off to sleep then. Dreaming of a new life with her.

Part 26

That night they had sex for the first time since she died. He laughed to himself at how strange that sounded, even in his head. She was laying beside him now, still naked, her head laying on his chest. Being with her again that way was so amazing. As a matter of fact it was better than it had ever been. But she was different. The way she rode him hard and fast took him by surprise but it really turned him on. Being inside her again was like heaven on earth. The taste of her breast in his mouth, the feel of her nipples hardening from the touch of his tongue. It took everything he had in him not to cum within the first few minutes. The way she was riding him so hard made it even more difficult to hold on. He wanted to take it slow, make love to her, it being the first time in so long, but it felt so good he didnt want to ruin it by trying to slow her down. The way she was so wild and rough with it made him wonder where it had all come from. She dug her nails into his back hard, and bit him on the neck and chest several times as she orgasmed. But nothing surprised him more than when she begged him to pull her hair and spank her. He did everything she asked, and enjoyed every last minute of it. Still he wondered. She had always been so gentle and sweet when they made love. Now she was starting to wake up. She looked up at him with her big brown eyes and smiled.

"Hello", she said.

"Hey sleepy head, did I wake you."

"No...I've rested enough."

" ready for round 2", he asked.

Part 25

"What do you mean you'll be gone soon?"

"I was reading in that book about the energy of spirits. That in order to survive they have to get a source of energy from somewhere, or the spirit can fade away. I also read if the spirit gets too far away from the light, it can be trapped in between worlds and there would be no way for me to get back."

"And you believe all of this stuff your reading?", he asked.

"Yes! I certainly think its worth a try. I know you dont believe in stuff like this. But what if its real, and I end up trapped somewhere because you wouldn't help, could you really live with yourself?"


"Well then dont you think we should do something?"

"How do you feel", he asked her.

"I feel tired, and cold. And the seems so far away now."

"Your moving away from the light?"

"Every second I stay here doing nothing but fading, Im getting further away. Sometimes I here my grandma calling me."

"Do you ever want to go..when she calls?"


"What about now?"

"I want to fight to stay here with you. But for all my fighting in the world it would be no use if your not fighting for us too."

" I'll fight for us. Just tell me what I need to do."

Part 24

"Tracy, you know that I love you. More than I love myself. I could never be better without you. But you have to be honest with me. Something is just not adding up."

"I dont know what you want me to say."

"I want you to tell me the truth", he said.

"Im telling you the truth", she said as she looked down at the floor.

He reached over and lifted her chin, looked her in the eyes and said, "I know when your not being honest with me."

"I did it for us. So we can be together", she said.

"What did you do?"

"What to book said.

"What did the book say?", he asked.

" It said to did up the grave of the one you want to revive, and place the carcass of a goat and put it inside the grave and to drizzle goats blood all over the grave."

She said all of that without once looking at him.

'Please dont be mad at me", she said.

"I cant believe you did that. You know how I feel about this kind of stuff."

"I know but I had to do something, to keep us together."

"We are together", he said. She shook her head..her right leg boucing against the edge of the bed.

"You know what I went thru with my mom. When she got into witch craft..some cult had her so brained washed, she committed suicide, because some lunatic convinced her that the end was coming and she had to sacrifice herself to be saved."

" I know. But this is different", she said.

"Different how. Once you get mixed up in this kind of stuff it does something to you. It chances you. I watched my mother go from a happy vibrant woman to a sad useless shell of a human being. I was to young to help her but theres noway, Im going to watch you go thru the same thing. I've already lost you once. I cant go thru that again."

"But you dont understand. If I dont do something. You really are going to loose me all over again. I'm loosing energy. I feel myself being pulled toward the light, and I dont think I can fight it any longer. Im scared that if I cant become human soon..I'll be gone, for good."

Part 23

When Andrew arrived back home, Tracy was sitting in the same spot he left her in. She looked worried. She didnt say a word when he walked in. Just waited for him to speak.

"I just came from the grave yard with Ryan", he told her as he sat down beside her.


"And..the headstone on your grave was moved, blood was on it. The dirt had been dug up. Do you have any idea why?"

"Why would I? I haven't been anywhere near the grave yard. know."

Andrew shook his head.

"You dont believe me do you", she asked him.

"Honestly I dont know what to believe. I mean you tell me that you've been dealing with some sort of witch craft...."

"Its not witch craft!"

"And all of asudden my cousin calls me..."

"Why was he even there anyway?", she asked.

"He was putting flowers on your grave."


"So your saying you had nothing to do with this?"

"I'm saying I haven't been near the graveyard.

"What did you do exactly?", he asked her.

"I went to a blood bank, I read some stupid words, thats all. Its not like I killed somebody. I wasnt' standing over my grave with some poor humans blood dripping down on my headstone, chanting like some manic pyscho path. Is that really what you think I am. Is this really who you think I've become?"

"Like I said before, I dont know what to think anymore."

She folder her arms and pouted her lips.

"Dont do that.", he said.

She ignored him and continued to pout.

"Your not being fair you know", he said.

"And you are? Your accusing me of being some sort of freak. You should see yourself. I dont like the way you've been looking at me since I told you. I thought we were closer than that. Thought I could tell you anything..everything. Now..Im beginning to think, maybe I should just go away."

"Go away? What do you mean by that."

"Maybe I should just fade away. Stop holding on. Go into the light or whatever dead people are suppose to do."

"Thats not funny", he said.

"Im not laughing. Im serious Andrew. I'm starting to feel like it would be better off if I just gave up, and let you move on. Maybe you'd be happier.

Part 22

When he arrived at his cousins house. He was surprised to see his cousin pacing the room, back and forth. His eyes were weird almost frantic. he was almost afraid to even ask him what was going on. So Andrew just stood there in the doorway. His cousin Ryan had left the door open. He almost turned around to go back to his car, but Ryan spotted him. He ran over to him and pulled him inside, slamming the door behind them.
"Andrew! You wont believe what I just saw. I was at the cemetary. You know, to leave flowers on Tracys grave..because I know you haven't been there since the funeral and her family...well, you know how they are..but I go to leave flowers and the head stone was moved and the grave had been dug up..dirt all over the place. Blood was on the head stone and there was this smell..."
"Hold on, slow down Ryan! Take a deep breath. When did all this happen? Were you alone?"
"It had to have been about 30 minutes ago. As soon as I saw the mess I left and drove straight home. Thats when I called you. And I was alone."
Ryan was still pacing back and forth across the room. Andrew put a hand on his cousin's shoulder to stop him.
"Are you gonna be ok?", he asked.
"I dont know man. I gotta be honest, Im a little freaked out."
"I need to go check it out for myself. Are you up for going back with me?", Andrew asked.
Ryan started to pace again.
"I'll go with you..just to make sure nothing happens to you. But you gotta promise you'll only stay a minute".
"Im just going to look around. I need to see it for myself, thats all..and we will leave".
"Ok, well lets go before I change my mind", Ryan said.
15 minutes later they were in the graveyard, standing in front of Traceys grave. It was just as Ryan had described. But worse than he had imagined. The dirt was definately dug up recently. The blood on the headstone fresh. The stench almost unbareable.
"I've seen enough, lets go", Andrew said as he walked away.
Ryan was right behind him, quickly catching up with his pace.
"I told you man! its sick! I mean who would do something like that? What are you going to do? Should we call the police?"
"No! Were not going to do anything. Forget you ever saw that. Tell noone."
"Are you crazy! Some sicko is out there. Just messed with your girlfriends grave..and did who knows what to it and you want to do nothing?"
"Its not as simple as you think. Look, I appreciate you going to put flowers on her grave, or attempting to, and I thank you for calling me to let me know what happened, but just trust me and let me handle this ok."
"Hey! You aint gotta tell me twice. I know when to back off. You dont have to worry about me saying anything."
"Thanks. Your a good egg."
"And your a cracked one but your not only my family but your my friend."
"So what did you do with the flowers?", Andrew asked.
"Their in the back seat."
"Mind if I have them?"
"Eh, whatever floats your boat".
Ryan drove back to his house. Andrew got into his car and drove home to confront Tracy. He had a bad feeling that she had something to do with this.

Part 20

"Dont you like being able to touch me", she asked him.
"Of course. But something like this..its, I dont know".
"You think too much, just go with it", she said.
"Im trying."
"Try harder!"
"Harder?", he asked.
"Yes. Harder."
"Thats what you always say".
"I like it hard", she said.
He reached over and ran his fingers over the ancient looking book.
"I just have a bad feeling about this".
"There you go thinking again."
She straddled him and pushed him back on the bed.
"Dont you want me?"
"Of course I want you. I just.."
Just then the phone rang. Eager for a distraction he answered it on the first ring. It was his cousin.
"You gotta come quick, somethings happened.."
Then the line went dead.

Part 17

"Ah", its a free country, you can sit where you like".
"Thank you", the woman said as she sat in front of him.
"I've been watching you since you came in. You intrigue me, thought id better introduce myself before you got away".
"I intrigue you", he asked
"Yes, is that so hard to believe?"
"Actually yes. "
"Why? Your a very handsome man. Very mysterious", she said.
"Thanks for the compliment, that really is flattering, but my lunch break is over, and I need to be back at the office in 5 minutes".
"Let me give you my card. You could call me sometime, we could hook up".
"Thanks, but no. Please dont give me your card", he said with a laugh..thinking of the last time a woman gave him her card.
"Whats so funny?", she asked.
"Too bad, I could have rocked your world", she said as she got up from the table and walked away.
He left soon after she did. Back at work, watching the minutes tick by slowly he could some how speed up time. When it was finally time to go home he felt like doing a back flip, not that he ever could. His heart sped up when he walked in the door and saw Tracy laying across the bed. From where he stood, she looked solid..human..alive. He was almost afraid to walk across the room. He took a deep breath and walked toward her.

Part 14

Tracy closed her eyes and sat very still. She reached toward me, her hands seeming to go thru my chest. Then she opened her eyes and focused hard on her hands until I could start to feel her hands pressing against me. Her hands were freezing cold but they felt so good. She contunured to focus until she was actually pushing me. I quickly grabbed her hands and placed them on my face. I shivered from the cold but I didnt mind at all.
"Surprise!", she said as she caressed my face.
'When did you know you could do this", I asked her.
"Just today. Earlier, when I was resting. I just thought Id try to see what I could do when I really focused my energy".
He laughed.
"I wonder what else you can do?"
"You have a dirty mind Mr.!"

Part 13

He closed the door quickly, leaning back against it. Wondering if it was safe to come near her. But when he looked at her he couldn't be afraid of her. She looked so beautiful, even when she was mad. He walked slowly across the room and sat beside her silhouette.
"Are you still mad at me", he asked her.
"Good, because I want to show you something".
He stood and took a small box from his pocket. When he sat back down he opened the box and placed it on the bed.
"Is that what I think it is", she asked him.
"Its an engagement ring".
"Your proposing to me now?!"
"No. Not now. I was going to before you....died. I've been paying on it in installments. My last payment was today. I was going to propose to you on Valentines day."
"Wow", she said.
"Yeah, wow. Im showing this to you because I want you to know that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you. You were my life...and now..theres really no reason for me to go on without you."
"Dont say that..Im still here".
"But for how long", he asked. "We cant live like this forever...I mean, is it really living? This isnt normal. I haven't been right since...since..and people already think i've lost my mind".
"If living like this makes us happy then who cares what anyone else thinks", she said.
He picked up the ring and examined it.
"I have no idea what Im suppose to do with this, its not like you can wear it".
"Keep it, maybe one day.."
"Maybe one day what?", he yelled. "Maybe one day I'll forget you and move on, find someone else to replace you? Do you really think I could move on? Could you? I mean you obviously haven't because your still here".
"Why are you getting mad at me? Im only trying to help".
"Im sorry Tracy. Im not mad at you. Its not your fault, Im just frustrated, thats all."
"Im sorry If Im making things harder by being here", she said.
" make me better. If it werent for your refusal to move on...I would have..
"You tried", she said.
"And you saved me."
"Hey, I never said til death do us part".
"Never got the chance", he said.
"Even then. I dont think I could move on..I dont see how I could ever let go."
"Well this is depressing", he said.
She laughed. Music to his ears.
"Hey..what happened earlier. Why'd you leave so suddenly".
"My energy was drained. I needed to rest".
"Do you get tired or something", he asked.
"No..well, it takes alot of energy to move something. Even more if its angry energy".
"I was gonna explain..that girl Melanie, I dont even know her. Nothings going on between us if thats what you were thinking.", he said.
"I know. I mean yes I was jealous for a split second. I flew off the handle too quickly and Im sorry."
"Its ok. Come lay beside me so we can both try to get some rest".
"In a minute, but first I want to show you something".

Part 11

When he walked outside, he noticed she was waiting beside his car. He rolled his eyes and went to the passenger side and unlocked the door. Once he got in he unlocked the other door and she jumped in way to quickly for his liking. On the way to the mall she talked the whole entire time. He found hisself tuning her out. Day dreaming of Tracy, wondering if she had come back to his apartment looking for him only to find he wasnt there. He'd hate for her to show up and he missed her. But she was a ghost, couldn't she be anywhere. Would she be able to find him. Suddenly he started to wonder about many things. Could she be in the car with them right now. Was she able to be near him without being seen by him, without him being able to sense her presense. But he quickly wiped that thought away. Seeing how she acted earlier when Melanie had called. He'd definately know if she were around. He was glad that the drive to the mall was a short one. He felt uncomfortable being alone in a closed space with this woman. Once they were inside the mall, he walked fast with his hands in his pockets. Melanie stuggling to keep up. Finally he stopped at this Jewelry Kiosk in the middle of the mall.
"Why are you going so wouldn't hurt you to slow down", Melanie said as she gasp to catch her breath.
"Do you nag everyone you know this much", he asked her.
"No, only the people I like", she said with a smirk.
When the sales rep came to the counter he handed him a receipt.
"I came to pick up a ring".
He paid the guy the rest of the money and quickly put the ring in his pocket. Melanie was looking at him strangely. He ignored her and turned to leave. She followed quickly behind him, faster than before, as if she'd caught her second wind.
"Who's the ring for", she asked.
"Dont worry about it, its none of your buisness."

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Part 10

I was a little worried after Tracy left so suddenly after the phone call. I didn't know what to do. My first instinct was to retreat back into the hole I had buried myself in the past few months, but I didn't have time because there was a knock at the door. It startled me because I wasn't use to people coming over. I looked thru the peep hole. It was that girl..Melanie. How did she find out where I live. For a few seconds I contemplated just ignoring the knocking until she gave up and went away. But my curiousity was much to stong, so I opened the door.
"What are you doing here?", I asked her
"Thats a nice way to greet someone when they come over to make sure your ok", she said.
"How did you find out where I live..what are you stalking me or something, first the phone call and now you show up at my door."
She gasped and put her hand on her hip as if I had said something shocking to her.
"Excuse me but we get disconnected in the middle of a phone call and after that I couldn't get an answer..what was I suppose to think", she asked.
"You didn't have to think anything, I dont even know why you care so much, you dont even know me", he told her.
"You ever stop to think that maybe I was interested in getting to know you better", she asked.
He rolled his eyes
"I hate to burst your bubble but im not into dating right now".
"Who said anything about dating? You have something against having friends", she asked.
I didn't know what to say, so I just stood there, looking at her.
"You should come out with me sometimes, maybe see a movie or something", she said.
"That sounds like a date to me".
"Ok, well we can hang out at the mall or something", she tried again.
"I dont hang out".
"Why are you being so difficult! Ok, you pick something".
"I'd rather now", he said.
"Well, since your being so stubborn, Im just gonna drop by everyday to check on you."
He rolled his eyes again.
"If I agree to go out with you will promise to back off and give me some space".
"I promise!", she agreed happily
"Just this can ride with me to the mall, I need to pick something up anyway".
"You mind waiting outside in your car while I change", he asked.
"Oh yeah..but dont keep me waiting too long", she said.
"If I do, will you give up and leave", he asked.
"Ha not funny, its hot outside and I have no ac in my car. So a decent human being wouldn't leave me waiting to long".
She turned to walk away, and I quickly closed the door. I really wasnt ready for this but this chick just wasnt letting up.
