    The blood packet felt cold in her hands.

    Anna was going fine with her weekend tour of the academy. First, the perfect poached egg and avocado toast breakfast. Then checking out the library. Following the school map to different spots of fun. In the end, she decided to check the infirmary out.

    Wrong decision.

    The metallic aroma of fresh, human blood attacked Anna as soon as she stepped in. A short girl, maybe from grade three or four, sat on a bench, holding her scraped, bleeding knee while the nurse tended to it. Anna flee from the place as fast as her human running abilities would allow (which was very slow but still). She ended her run in the café.

    Another wrong decision.

    New blood packets were being transferred - synthetic blood, human blood, animal blood - for the students who survived on blood. But the human blood looked the tastiest. Before she could stop herself, Anna was going for the pack.

    But this is the last time, She assured herself as she took fast, steady steps towards her dorm room. I swore on my blood that this is the last time I borrow blood from cafe.

    Anna never swore on her - she crinkled her nose - blood before. But since so many warlocks and witches do that, it must be powerful, yeah? After all --

    Wham.

    There were footsteps behind her, closing in, and before she knew, she slipped and landed on her back, sending the blood packet flying up and back to the ground with swoosh. The package burst open the second it hit the ground, and the blood started to seep out.

    Anna's blood. Tasty, fresh, human blood.

    Spilled.

    @Zora - sorry for the crap writing, I'm having one of my signature 'writing block' moments

    Azucena was coming back from a student council meeting - lost in thought and not really paying too much attention to anything in particular - when she suddenly stopped in her tracks when she came across a girl in the hall, and she was on the ground bleeding out. Or so it seemed like from a distance.

    Hurrying towards the girl, Azucena started to panic at the amount of blood everywhere - watching it seep slowly out from underneath the student -, not having clued in yet to the fact the girl was a vampire and the blood was from a blood bag.

    "Are you okay?" she asked frantically as she bent down on her one knee, not quite sure what to do. "Oh lord... There is blood everywhere," Azu blurted out as she glanced downwards and flinched, going pale at the sight of so much blood.

    "Wait here, don't move, I'll get help..." she told the girl as she got to her feet and pulled out her cell phone, looking for the emergency number listed somewhere.

    Damn it, Annabelle repeated in her mind again and again as she lay on her back. There was no pain - of course - but instead, she felt a cold anger seeping in. Irritation, suddenly, overpowered her other feelings. So that's probably why, when a pretty-looking brunette approached her, she bared her fangs.

    In a blink, she was standing among all the blood, her side slick, wet and warm. She looked a little paler than she did moments ago as she stared down at the girl, eyes narrowed. "Oh yeah, I'm perfectly alright. Everything is going great. In fact, I was just having a party with all this blood!" She snapped. "Duh. Can't you watch where you're going, little girl?"

    Azucena was normally a pretty composed young woman, thanks in part to her older sister Aranea who had taught her how to remain calm and collected, and how to stand up for herself and not let others walk all over her.

    Looking down at the young girl as spouted her venom, Azucena stood back a little, unimpressed since she was only trying to help, and rolled her eyes. "Since I was halfway down the hall when you slipped and fell, I'd say that you should look out where you are going, and not blame others for your apparent clumsiness," she informed her.

    An increase in anger increased the paleness. She just stood there, arms folded and she looked down upon the girl, her charcoal black eyes glinting in the corridor light. When the girl was finally done, Anna snorted. "Yeah, I totally believe that, because I really didn't feel somebody push at me, yeah?" Anna narrowed her eyes some more, and felt her eyes turn blood-shot slowly, little by little - probably not enough for any normal human being, or something else, with an extra ability to see sharper, to see.

    Under normal circumstances, Anna would have totally looked away if her eyes turned bloodshot. She didn't want to risk anyone knowing that she is what she is. Since the time she arrived, she'd been hiding the whole thing pretty nicely. But now? She just lost it herself.

    Azucena just shook her head and snorted in disbelief at the girl's apparent craziness or desire to be quarrelsome.

    "Well, I don't know what you are talking about." she scoffed, "unless you have an imaginary friend that hates you, cause it weren't me who pushed you," Azucena reiterated as she watched Anna get angry and irritated without there really being a reason for it.

    (Sorry, short)

    Anna rolled her eyes and shook her head at the same time. Her irritation was increasing by the minute, and she didn't even know why. She usually wasn't this moody back when she was a human. Maybe it's all a side-affect of being a vampire, a thought ran in the back of her mind. Or rather, a newborn vampire, since I've seen loads of cool, calm, collected vampires. In movies.

    "Well, why don't you just say sorry and be done with it?" Anna said, and looked down at the bloody mess. Anyone could come here, and see the mess created. Is she suppose to clean it? How? She doesn't even have any powers, except compulsion, as far as she knew. Will I get in trouble for this? She didn't know. Heck, today was her first day! "And what the hell am I supposed to do with this blood now? Am I supposed to clean it or something?" She asked, not really looking at the girl. Maybe she'd understand that Anna is new and won't say anything.

    Azucena stared down at the girl incredulously. "I am not saying sorry for something I did not do. I apologize that you think I did it, but I didn't and I am not admitting to something I didn't do," she said firmly, hands on hips now. She was not about to cop to something she didn't do and have rumours spread around the school about her.

    "Well, you could always call a teacher, you know?" she pointed out, "They can help clean you up, and get the mess cleaned up too."

    Anna rolled her eyes and shook her head in one perfect combination of oh-god-why-am-I-stuck-here expression at the girl's incredulous suggestion. "Tell a teacher, and risk them finding out that I'm some creepy bloodsucking monster? Really?"

    Anna knew all that "everyone is accepted" mantra every single staff here recites - but dude, when it comes to real monsters, are you really so accepting? How can you come close to, or help someone, whom you know drinks blood? Blood? Who's capable of tearing you apart?

    Suddenly, Anna didn't want to be here. She didn't want to be in Manta Carlos, at the Academy. She wanted to be at home, sipping on hot chocolate while she gives advice to Beth about which dress to choose for her party. She wanted to spend weekends with mom, watching TV all night. I want to be a human, she repeated in her head, her face twisting in an uncomfortable look.

    "Dude, bloodsucking is fairly normal here... I don't know what type of creature you are," Azucena said as she looked the girl over from head to toe, guessing she probably was a vampire, but knowing that she could just as easily be a demon, spider, fae or a ghoul.

    "But that is nothing compared to eating human flesh, feeding off of sexual energy, not being able to walk, see or function during the daylight hours, or not being able to simply breathe our atmosphere and need to wear a special helmet all the time," Azucena said as she looked at the girl quite seriously.
