Vampires Will Never Hurt You Part 23

"Dawn" Gerard shouted and ran towards me. "Shit" I mumbled, Why did he have to find me? Why couldn't he run away? I opened my mouth to warn him, even though it meant that I'd die but I couldn't I got choked up. Gerard wrapped his arms around me, I burst into tears. I couldn't let go, part of me wanted to push him away and tell him to save himself but another part of me never wanted to leave him go either way I couldn't control my actions anymore. One of my arms was around his neck, the other was hovering above his back with the knife. He was completly clueless to what was going on.
"Its okay, I'm here" he said soothingly, I just sobbed into his shoulder. He didn't say anything for awhile and I was trying to stop crying. My hand with the knife was shaking I was fighting against it. "What happened?" he finally asked, I didn't answer. Maybe if I pulled it away for long enough and told him to run he'd be safe. "Gerard...I..." I started, trying to break away, "Shhh" he said softly and pulled me closer. "I love you" I said through the tears, "I love you too" he whipered and kissed me on the cheek. He moved his hand from my back to my neck, I got a shock when he touched the wires.
Then he let go. He looked down and saw the knife in my hand. He went pale, I didn't know how he was going to react I though for a second that he'd freak out and leave me. He didn't, he gently took the knife from my hands and threw it to the ground. He looked around and saw a fallen tree trunk. He held out his hand and brought me over to it and we sat down. "What happened?" he asked again he didn't look mad, he looked worried. I noticed for some reason that I wasn't being controled anymore, maybe it was because I didn't have the knife. "Him" I whispered and burst into tears again. He didn't look surprised he just sighed and then wiped my tears away. "I should have told you about Raoul" he said, "Who?" I asked, "Raoul, thats his name" he answered. "Oh okay, I knew about Raoul, I heard you guys talking about him" I said. "I'm sorry this is all my fault, I thought I was protecting you by not telling you" he sighed. "Its not your fault" I said "Its mine I was going to wake you up and ask you to come out here with me but I decided not to, maybe this wouldn't have happened if I did, How does he know you guys? And why does he want me to kill you?". He hesitated "He's the guy who turned us into vampires in the first place, he was annoyed when I refused to drink blood. He wanted us to kill people, Ray drank blood but he never killed anyone and Mikey and Frank were still human. There was other vampires too and they killed recklessy and always fought with eachother. We wern't safe and we didn't think it would be so bad, I was weak and Mikey and Frank couldn't defend themselves so it wasn't fair on Ray to have to protect us all the time. We decided that we didn't want to be there anymore so we ran away. I guess he's pissed at us now, "Why did you come out here?" he asked, "To drink blood" I replied. I caught him smiling a little, "Really? You finally decided to drink blood?" he asked. I nodded, he put his arm around me. "Next time don't be afraid to ask me" he said.

He stood up, "Come on we should go back and tell the others that your alive" he said. I got up, he held my hand as we walked. I still felt weak I got a really bad head ache and then a sickening feeling in my stomach. "Not this again" I thought but this time I felt worse than ever. I was about to ask him to stop so I could sit down but I suddenly felt like I was going to throw up again. I let go of his hand and ran behind and tree. I started coughing up blood. He held my hair back, I sighed "I hate this" I mumbled. "Once you drink blood it will stop" he said "I know the feeling" he added. "We can do it later with the rest of the guys" he promised. We started walking again, I started to feel faint. I stopped, "Are you okay?" he asked. I got dizzy and had to grab onto him so I wouldn't fall. "Crap" I heard him say to himself. He took my hand and dragged me over to a tree, I leaned against it. "Gerard, What's happening to me?" I asked, I was finding it hard to breathe. "This is what happens when you go too long without drinking blood, it means your dying" he said, "I don't want to die" I cried. "I know" he said softly and brushed some of my hair out of my eyes "We have time this is exactly what happensedto me, listen your probably gonna pass out in a few minutes but promise me that when you wake up you won't refuse to drink it". I nodded, "Your okay, everything gonna be fine" he kept telling me. I was shaking I felt like I'd collapse any second. He kissed me lightly and picked me up. I blacked out.
