Blood, Blood Part 7!!!!!

Then the Val led us back into his office, and we sat down again, still laughing. He stopped, and leaned across his desk so we had his head-on attention.
“So, now we get to the real talking.” He said, smiling. We smiled back, ready to talk. “You girls are special, you see. Not only can we get along like family, but you two can time travel.”
“What?” I asked, humored. “Us? I thought it was a portal type thing.”
He waved his hand in the air. “Psh, that only happens in science fiction books. You guys are the real deal. There aren't many people who can do it, let alone vampires.”
“So you're saying we have powers?” I asked, shocked.
“Yes, and very strong ones at that, to take you back so far, and to a favored time,” he nodded at Maggie, “is a very special and powerful gift indeed.”
“How did it happen, though. We didn't ask for it, or anything.”
“Well, it usually is caused by a great sense of danger, something to power your 'fight or flight' senses. Most likely you wished you were never there in the first place, or something like that, and you ended up here. Ta da! Magicians with real talent.”
“So, can we go in and out of times whenever we please, then?” I wanted to know if I could take it further.
“Yes, with training, you can come and go any time you like, but for humans, that training could take a long time.”
I paused, Maddie seemed to get it and asked, “You mean...?”
“Yes.” He answered. “Vampire's senses and powers are magnified greatly after transformation. The best time to train would be after that.”
“You mean we have to...”
“Yes.” He answered again. “The only way to get back home is to become a vampire.”
“So, how does that work?” I asked, not wanting to give up the sun.
“Basically, you can choose any vampire you want, according to this contract,” he pulled out a sheet of paper, “and they will bite you. Bite, but not drink. It takes 24 hours for the process to be finished, after that, you will be immortal and beautiful forever.”
“Let me have a look at that.” I requested.
“Yes ma'am.” He answered and handed it over.
“It also said we will be in the company's service from then on.”
“Not like a servant or anything. You will be one of the most highly paid workers here. You would be one of the most excellent hands around here. You two could be treated like queens.”
Maddie and I both sighed with the wonder of it all. Sure, there were a couple setbacks. But queens...that was worth it. Maddie gasped. “What about the others?”
“Oh, them? They will have to be taken away.”
“Why?” We both asked, shocked.
“Well, this is an unpleasant subject, but I suppose you need to know. The others, you know of their ways, not drinking human blood. They probably told you we were evil.” We all laughed, but Maddie's was much more timid. “What they really are are dangerous. They have never tasted human blood fresh, so they are most likely to kill people out of blood lust. It happens so fast, they usually decimate a town when it overtakes them. We have been trying to get them to come over to our side, but they are young, barely a year old, since turning. They might be more of a hassle then help. They have all been a whiny race anyway. We like to call them the Lewis”
Maddie gasped. I had no idea why. I had always wondered about them. I knew something was up with them, and now, I had a way to get home. Maddie looked pale, but resolved. “Could we go see if we could help?” She asked. Val looked hesitant, then reluctantly, he answered, “Fine, but quickly.”
We left and went down tot he very last floor. It didn't look so nice, but I guess people who couldn't be trusted. I felt reluctant to go. I didn't know why I ever felt anything with Mikey, but it didn't seem even possible now. We got to an old cell-like room, where all four of them were chained to the wall. Maddie ran over to Frank who was unconscious. I looked at Mikey, who was staring at me with a desperate expression. I didn't know if he was trying to read something in my eyes, but he didn't like what he saw. He yelled. “No! No! What have you done to her, you freak, you bastard, no! No!” tears started running down his eyes.
Al raised an eyebrow. “You don't mean...” Then he gave Mikey a shocked look. “That's against the law. Both yours and mine. Unless...” He stared at me. “Come this way,” he yelled, taking my hand. I started to follow willingly, when Mikey yelled to me again.
“No! No! Elaine, please, come back! Elaine!” Hearing my name made my stomach flip. I pulled myself out of his grasp to run back to Mikey. Val followed me. I ran right in front of him, staring into his eyes imploringly. He was looking through mine, desperately again, then, suddenly, his eyes turned blood red. I started walking back, slowly. He was trying to do something, and I didn't know what it was, but I didn't like it. Then he started crying.
“No! Please, Elaine, come back! They took you away, please come back!” I looked at him, confused. Val had already taken my arm and started pulling me back, I resisted little, being scared and confused.
“What is he talking about, Val?”
“Nothing dear, I fear he's going mad. We need to get you somewhere safe.”
“Wait! No! Elaine! Please! You need to come back! You aren't who you were when we met! When we talked, when I...” He paused, trying to hold back the shower of tears going down his face. “When I fell in love with you.”
All of a sudden I fell to the ground with an invisible force shoving me down. I looked into Mikey's blood-red eyes, and realized what was going on. They had put something in the food, something that made me want to do whatever they wanted me to do. Maddie had been stronger then I in... MADDIE! I stared over at her. She was fighting some guards pulling her away from Frank. She must have known what was going on. Had she eaten anything at all? Or had she known all along. I looked at Mikey again, and suddenly my rebellious nature took over and I got up and looked at Val. He looked frightened and ran. The guards dropped Maddie and I was about to chase after them, when the door slammed shut. I ran up, but there was no knob in the back. We were trapped in.
