Part 38

Andrew quickly picked up the phone, eager for a distration.


"Hey Drew, its Ryan."

"Hey man, hows it going?"

"Hows it going? I could ask you the same thing!"

"Oh yeah..well, Im not sure."

"What do you mean? Did she drink it?"

"Yeah she did."


"And...I dont know."

"Come on Drew, I can tell by the sound of your voice that something is wrong."

"Look, I just dont want to freak you out anymore than you already are."

"Thats all well and good but Im already involved and Im gonna continue to freak out knowing your hiding something from me, so you might as well just spill it!"

"I really dont know how to explain it. Its something you'd have to see to believe."

There was a pause on the other end of the line.

"Well...do you wanna know whats going on, or dont you."

"I'm still thinking about it", Ryan said.

Andrew rolled his eyes.

"Andrew!", Tracy screamed

He spun around, almost dropping the phone. His heart sped up as he watched Tracy's body spasming out of control. Putting the phone back to his ear he said..

"I have to go, I'll call you back."

As soon as he hung up, he ran over to Tracy, grabbing hold of her body and pulling her close to him. She seemed to slowly calm down, the spasms coming less and less until they stopped completely. When it was over, he let her go. She turned away from him and curled up into a ball on the bed. He leaned over and put his hand on her shoulder, but she pushed him away.

"Dont do that?", he said.

She rolled over and looked at him. Then looked down at her arms.

"It stopped."

"Thats good right", he asked.

"I guess."

"I'd say so."

He pulled her close to him, kissing her softly on her neck.

"I want to go outside", she said.

He pulled away quickly as he said, "Are you crazy?"

"No..not yet anyway."

"Im serious Tracy, its getting light out."


"And..what if someone sees you?"

"Fine, I'll put on a disguise."

"You dont have a disguise."

"Then I guess your gonna have to get me one because I want to go outside."

Part 35

When Andrew arrived home, Tracey was at the door waiting for him. He walked passed her and sat on the bed.

"Well?", she asked.

He handed her the gym bag and she snatched it from him, pulling the zipper back so fast she almost broke it. She tossed the bag on the floor and held the bag of blood in her hands.

"So what now?", he asked her.

"I drink it...I guess."

"Do you need a cup or something?"

"I guess..I mean, it would get kind of messy trying to drink from this plastic."

He just sat there looking at her.

"Will you go get me a cup? Please?"


He left and went to the kitchen. The wait seemed so long. She felt the strong urge to just rip into it with her teeth but she resisted. She held on to it tightly. It felt so heavy, and cold.

"I got you your favorite Garfield cup and a pair of scissors", Andrew said as he walked back into the room.

He handed her the scissors. She careful cut along the top of the bag. Dropping the scissors to the floor when she finished, she held the bag with both hands as Andrew held the cup out to her. She slowly poured the blood from the bag. Andrew's hand shook slightly and so did her own. When she was finished she took the cup from him and stepped back.

"You dont have to watch this is you dont want to", she told him.

"Its ok. I want to. I need to."

"Ok...here goes.."

Part 34

Ryan sat outside on the steps as he waited for Andrew to get there. He was eager to do away with the blood in his gym bag. It was beginning to creep him out. Andrew arrived 15 minutes after he did. Ryan stood up as Andrew got out of his car. They met eachother half way.

"Took you long enough", Ryan said as he handed over the gym bag.

"Sorry, traffic is unforgiving tonight. I got here as fast as I could."

"No problem, Im just anxious to get this over with you know?"

Andrew nodded and unzipped the bag enough to peek inside.

"Hope it doesnt matter what blood type it is", Ryan said with a nervous laugh.

Andrew smirked. "I doubt that matters."

"So what happens now?"

"Well, I take this home to Tracy and let her have at it".

"Once she drinks it what then?"

"I have no idea. This is all new to us too. I guess we just wait and see what happens."

"You'll let me know if something changes?"

"Yeah, I"ll keep you posted."

The hugged eachother briefly.

"Thanks man..this means alot", Andrew said as he walked off with the bag.

After he left Ryan went inside. He laid on the sofa and starred blankly at the tv for hours. Wondering what was happening with Andrew and Tracy. He thought about calling them but didnt want to intrude. So he waited..and waited for the phone call. But it never came. Not that night anway. So he laid there starring at the tv until he finally fell asleep.
