Chapter 65 The end…?
Ah, my head hurts….
I try to sit up but the pain forces me back down. It’s dark and as much as I try, I can’t seem to get my eyes to focus on anything. I move each part of my body to try to figure out where all the pain is coming from. Arms, seem ok. I can move them fine. My back hurts some, not too bad. My legs seem heavy… “What the Hell?”, I exclaim. There is a heavy chain wrapped around one of my legs. That’s why I can barely move it.
I slowly sit up on the cot. I can see nothing, not even my own hand in front of my face. I fight down the panic I feel as I start remembering what happened. Merrilee, Summer, the babies…. then Rob, that wolf, and several others charged me and threw a potion at me. Realization is setting in that I’m no longer a vampire. That’s why I feel so bad, I’m not used to feeling human.
I stretch my hands out in front of me and slowly try to feel for something, anything that will tell me where I am. I small table is beside the cot. I feel the top of the table and touch something on it. I work my hands up the base and realize it’s a lamp. It must be an old-fashioned oil lamp, I don’t feel a switch to turn it on, only a knob to adjust the wick. I search the table more and find a drawer. I pull the drawer open and feel inside. Not much of anything in there but finally toward the back, I find a lighter. I quickly feel for the lamp again and light it. A warm yellow light glows from the lamp. I look around the room and realize I’m in one of the tombs in the graveyard. I see no doors or windows. The only things in the room is the cot, beside table, a bookcase, a table and chair, a small refrigerator, a sink and a toilet in the corner. I pull on the chain that is connected to my ankle… it’s connected to the wall. I jerk on it hard, several times and it doesn’t budge. I stand up and realize the chain is long enough for me to reach all around the room but no farther than that. I slowly walk to the sink and turn the water on, it pours from the tap and I cup my hands and splash the cool water on my face. It feels cool and I take a long drink from the tap.
Rob thinks he’s won, but he’s wrong. I’ll find a way out of here and I’ll get him back. He can’t just leave me here to die. He has to come back at some point, he’s my brother.. he won’t let me die here, no matter what I’ve done to him. I put my hands to my face and press hard on my eyes, if only my head would stop pounding, I could figure a way out of here.
I give the room a thorough search, hoping to find something to use as a weapon. Rob has cleaned the place out. All I can find is some fruit and vegetables in the refrigerator, books in the bookshelf, and nothing else that is useful.
I sit back down on the bed and turn the light back off. I’ll just sleep a while longer and hopefully I’ll feel better when I wake back up.
I haven’t been asleep very long when I hear a strange noise. I slowly wake up and see Rob standing over me. I jump up and automatically get into defense mode. “What the hell are you doing here? I thought you left me to die!”, I yell at him.
“You haven’t even begun to suffer yet, Moe! This is only the beginning, you have messed with my family for the last time!”, Rob screams at me. He points his finger at me and glares. “You are going to pay for hurting everyone in my family, you will never hurt any one ever again!”, he says as he lunges at me and hits me across the face.
The assault continues and I don’t even have the strength to fight back. I’m weak from being in here with little food. I fall to the ground and try to catch my breath.
I try to stand up but Rob kicks me back down and slams my head against the wall. I collapse against the wall, barely able to move.
“What are you going to do with me Rob? You can’t keep my locked up here forever. What are you going to do? Are you going to keep me here and stop by every few days to check on me and feed me? You can’t keep up with all that. People will find out. I’ll escape!” I scream at him. “No, that’s not what I plan to do, Moe You should be very interested in what I’m going to do. You like being a supernatural so much. You should love this!”, he says as he grins. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a black vial. He raises his hand and throws the vial at me. I feel like I’m dying, the pain is overwhelming. I can’t breathe. “What did you do to me?”, I gasp.
I try to stand up but the pain is too much. I collapse back to the ground. “Help me, Rob. Please.”, I plead.
Rob pulls me to my feet and forces me to walk, I now feel nothing. I feel dead inside. I’ve been turned into a zombie, the walking dead. He pulls me out of the small room and into the hall, then into another smaller room. A large sarcophagus stands against the wall. Suddenly, I know what he has planned. He pulls open the door and turns to me.
He grabs my arms and pushes me into the tomb. My life is over. I’ll never get out of here.
I try to push on the door to keep it from closing, but it’s too heavy. I can’t budge it. The door closes and I’m in complete darkness. Then there is nothing.
Finally, it’s done. Moe will never get out of there. I turn and look at the room. There are piles of rock and rubble everywhere. No one has been in this room in probably hundreds of years.
I walk out of the room and push the hidden door closed. I double-check the wall and make sure it is completely hidden. No one would suspect there is a room hidden behind this wall. Moe is finally secure and will never bother my family again.
I turn around and walk out of the graveyard tombs. My brother will never be found again.
