I was walking home on an August night about 7 years ago. I was 11 at the time and I was interested in the supernatural. I was about to turn at the corner of my block but I stopped. I had no idea why, but I was propelled to go a different way. So I started walking in a completely random direction in utter darkness.
A pair of headlights suddenly lit up in my direction. I couldn't move my legs to get out of the way. For some reason I did not even want to get out of the way and my legs felt like lead. As the car neared I started to feel my blood pumping in my veins. I wasn't scared.
Then for about 7 seconds, I was lifted into the air, out of the car's way. I caught a glimpse of the driver. It was a dark figure with bloodshot expressionless eyes. I still was not scared. Just confused. After a minute or so I finally got my sanity back and started screaming. They came muffled out of my throat. I looked myself over to see if I was alive and okay. There was a hand on my arm but I couldn't feel it.
I looked up at the owner of the hand and I screamed in terror. It was a vampire. He looked almost transparent. His fangs stuck out like walrus tusks. His pale skin was barely visible. He lurched towards my neck and I instantly felt burning pains in my thighs. I passed out.
When I woke up I was lying in the middle of the road. When I got home my parents were hysterical. 'Where have you been?' 'Are you alright?' 'Did someone hurt you?' Why is there blood all over you?'
When I heard my mom say blood I rushed to my bathroom. I examined my neck and sure enough there were two fang marks. My dad came in and asked some more pointless questions. I tried to tell him about the ghost, but he only asked more questions. He barely listened.
The next day I school on my way to class I saw him again. I opened my locker and his face appeared in the mirror. I turned around but of course no one was there but fellow classmates. I almost remember a smirk on his face. I never saw him again after that but I think about it often.
