Crouching down, I watched her, waiting to make my move. She slowed down and pulled her iPod from her pocket. I jumped up and ran at her. She looked in my direction just before I knocked her down, her pupils dilating in fear. I breathed in the scent of her fear, knowing that this was going to be a tasty treat. I didn't usually bother to play with my food and give them the chance to be afraid, like so many others did.

She opened her mouth to scream and I bit into the soft part of her neck before a sound could escape. I savored the warm, sweet blood that filled my mouth. I'd forgotten how much better fear-laced blood tasted. I drank until I had my fill, which nearly drained her. Seeing some shrubs nearby, I tossed her into them.

I wiped my mouth and pulled out my phone again. I was right on track, both for time and direction, in getting to Delphic Cove before school started. If I was lucky, I could find Marguerite and learn what she knew before her first class. Then I could get back to Vince's mansion before lunch.

When I arrived in town, I could tell right away that it was a small town. That would make it easier to find the school, but it would also make it more difficult to blend in. The nice thing about big cities is the ability to blend in anywhere.

Using the GPS again, I saw that there were two high schools in the town. If that was the case, it wasn't that small of a town and I might stand a chance at blending in. I decided to go for the nearest high school and see if I could find her there. When I got there, I could see the students piling in through the doors.

Thinking back to when I'd seen her as a toddler, I tried to imagine what she might look like now. I headed for the swarm of people, looking at as many faces as I could. If she had been a full vampire, it would have been a lot easier to find her. From what it sounded like, she was barely in the beginning stages of her transformation, which would essentially make her appear to be human.

How one born as a vampire could look and act just like a human was a mystery to me, since we vampires weren't human. Sure, we still looked just like the humans, even after transforming. But clearly we were not, considering our hearts and other organs had ceased to work while other systems went on overdrive after the full transformation. That wasn't even considering the need to drink human blood.
