Chapter 40

Andrew snatched his arm away from Tracy's mouth. But not before she got a taste of his blood. She was frozen in place, licking the blood slowly from her lips. Her eyes rolling back into her head as if she was having an orgasm. He backed away from her slowly, not taking his eyes off her for a minute. He bumped into the wall, moving to the left and turning slightly, his eyes still on her, he opened the bathroom door and backed in quickly closing the door behind him. He yanked off a wad of toilet paper and held it to his wrist. Leaning against the bathroom door he closed his eyes.

"Think, think, think", he said to himself.

"Andrew!", Tracy called in a sing song voice.

"I'll be out in a minute, Im taking a piss", he yelled.

"I dont hear any leakage!"

"I said I'll be out in a minute", he called back.

"I'll be waiting."

Andrew inhaled and exhaled. Was this what his life had come to? He was hiding in the bathroom from his once dead, but brought back to life girlfriend, who seemed to have a increasing craving for blood. He couldn't hide in here forever. He had to be a man. Stand up to her. He didn't know what she could do, or what she would do, but he had to face her. For better or for worse, he had to do something. He removed the tissue from his wrist and looked at the bite mark. It wasn't too deep and the bleeding had stopped. He tossed the bloody tissue into the toilet and flushed it, washed his hands and opened the door. Tracy was standing there, smiling at him.

"I thought you wanted to go outside", he said.

"I do".

"Then go. I wont try to stop you."

"I'm sorry. I got carried away", she said.

Andrew said nothing. Just looked at her. She moved toward him, reaching for his arm. He moved his arm and backed in the other direction.

"I just want to look at it".

"Nothing to see. Shallow flesh wound, Im fine", he told her.

"I'm sorry."

"I heard you the first time."

"Your scared of me now!"

"Im done fighting with you Tracy. You can do what you want, I wont stand in your way."
Tears started to form in her eyes and her lips quivered.

"Are you mad at me?"

"Yes! You freakin bit me Tracy!"

"I said Im.."

"Yeah I know, your sorry. But that doesnt change the fact I've been trying to do everything to keep us together, trying to make you happy and I feel like your turning on me."

Tracy walked over to the bed and sat on the bed. Hiding her face in her hands she started to cry. Andrew sighed, sat beside her and wrapped her in his arms.
