Discrimination of the Undead
”Damn, there goes another one ” Hector sighed, sprawled out on the couch while watching the news. Another vampire was found decapitated in a ditch, letting the sun burn away at their skin.
”Let me guess….human did it. ” Hector mumbled to himself then the reporter on the TV confirmed he was correct. ”Wow, no surprise there. ”,he rolled his eyes and got up, turning the TV off and tossing the remote onto the couch. He made his way up to his room, checking the time to see it was almost 8pm. The sun was setting fast so he finally got dressed. Hector just threw on a grey long sleeve with white and yellow stripes and light blue jeans. Hector really hated the stereotype of vampires dress in fancy black suits and all of that. He just wanted to be comfortable so he avoided the fancy outfits like a werewolves avoided Wolfbane.
Hector grabbed an old leather satchel his grandma had made him many years ago, the poor thing was hanging on by a thread be he continued to use it anyway. He yawned and trudged down the stairs. A phone buzzed on the coffee table and he can only assume it was his so he sped up and went to grab his phone. Hector saw who was calling him and sighed, already knowing the routine of what she was going to say.
”Hello! ” His mom chirped through the phone the moment he answered. Her usual singsong voice always made him smile. ”Hi mom ” he chuckled while grabbing his house keys. ”Are you going out? Make sure you stay away from those humans, you saw the news right? ” She warned. ”Yes mom I saw the news. I go out every night for the past what? 100 years or so? I think Im alright on my own mom. ” He reassured, rolling his eyes in the process due to this being the nightly routine. ”And don go out with that! Oh whats his name…. ” His mom started but her voice trailed off. ”Joseph? ” He sighed.
”Yes! That one! I don like that one. Stay away from him Hector. ” His mother warned. Hector bluntly agreed that he would not go near Joseph. They both talked about what they did around the house for a few minutes before Hector said his goodbyes then hung up. Next he scrolled through his contacts and found Joseph. He called him as he was walking out the door.
”Hey Joseph! We still heading to Finns right?
” Hector asked.
”Hell yeah, Im on my way right now. Mom just finished her long ramble about how I need to avoid you cause your dangerous and blah blah blah
” his buddy laughed and Hector rolled his eyes.
”Yeah yeah, my mom just went through the same talk. I swear its routine
” he chuckled while walking down the empty, dark street. The street lamps flickered and buzzed occasionally but we
e not a very reliable source of light. ”Anyway, Ill see you down by the shore ok? We can meet up and then go find Finn ” Joseph told him. ”Sounds good, Im walking so it my take me a few minutes ” Hector told him reluctantly, knowing the jokes that were about to be made.
”Can you turn into like a wolf or bat? Make things go a little quicker? ” Joseph asked. ”For the thousandth time Joe, no I cannot. Im part human so that kind for canceled out a few powers. ” He sighed, knowing that Joseph is well aware of the fact but he likes to ask anyway to see if he will ever get a different answer. ”Oh fine, well see you in a few minutes, try not to be too long sucker. ” Joseph snickered and Hector just rolled his eyes and chuckled. ”Yeah yeah, see you ” he hung up and quietly walked on.
A few humans going for a night walk quickly crossed the street to avoid him, Hector kept his gaze to the ground as he passed the mysterious man in a straw hat and shaggy clothes who whistled throughout the neighborhood. No monster nor man ever looks at the mysterious whistler due to people disappearing shortly after seeing him. No one knows what he is but Hector would rather not find out. He saw a few figures fly across the night sky but couldn tell what they were. After trying to figure it out he just assumed they were Pegasuss and left it at that.
After walking for ten minutes he finally saw the signs that lead to the beach. In the distance he saw Josephs car in the empty parking lot. There were signs everywhere that warned people of mermaids, sirens, some other creatures that control the oceans. Hector began to jog over to the car and saw a man sitting on the hood. He had dark brown skin, dreadlocks that were pulled back into a ponytail, and a white shirt with grey sweatpants and a thin jacket tied around his waist.
”There you are! Took you long enough ” Joseph chuckled, sliding off the hood of his car.
”Yeah yeah, have you spotted Finn yet? ” Hector asked but Joseph shook his head no. ”Well lets go find her then ” Hector smiled and grabbed his arm, dragging him towards the water. They heard soft, angelic singing far from them and Joseph froze. ”Joe? ” Hector looked back at him but Joseph had gotten free from his grasp and began to walk along the shoreline.
Hector just shook his head and followed, the singing having no effect on him whatsoever. He followed his entranced friend until they reached a large grouping of rocks. They saw a figure laying across the rocks, singing. Joseph slowly went over, the figure sat up and slid themself off the rocks. The singing slowly came to and end as they gently reached for Josephs face. ”There you are my baby ” she smiled. A girl with a short, choppy hair that barely came down to her pointed ears. She wore a white top that just covered her chest and wrapped around her shoulders loosely. She wore loosely fitting shorts made out of woven sea weed. White tattoos of tentacles, different sea creatures, and the staff of the king that controls the oceans covered her beautiful tan skin.
Joseph looked around confused for a moment, trying to figure out how he got here but that thought was quickly subsided as he hugged her. ”Hi! Hi! ” Joseph smiled brightly, ignoring how cold she felt. The mermaid hugged him back, gently kissing his forehead numerous times. ”I missed you handsome ” she chuckled and Joseph just melted against her touch.
Hector quietly scoffed with a teasing smile. ”Ewwww I don wanna see that ” he teased, stepping to the side of Joseph. His buddy just looked away embarrassed while the mermaid looked at Hector. ”Hey Hex! ” She smiled and ruffled his silky hair. ”How ya doin Finn ” he chuckled but avoided to hug her due to her being wet and cold from the ocean. ”Ah, if you are going to smile I better see fangs. Just because theres all the bullshit going on don mean you hide from me. ” She told him and Hector sighed and smiled brighter for her. ”Theres my other handsome boy ” she grinned, her yellow eyes glowing in the darkness.
