October With Offgun Couples 👻

Chapter Text

“I almost got fucking mugged,” Third slid down against the door. Khai froze in place. He could see Third shaking as little and trying to slow his rapid breathing. His heart rate was quick and the smell of his blood was stronger than usual.

“I was coming here to check on you and someone was following me,” Third continued. “I think he stopped when I got inside.”

“What did he look like?” Khai could feel his hands start to shake as well. Milk said that the clan would take care of his ex, but what if they hadn’t tracked him down yet? “Was he about my height, wearing a black hoodie?”

“Yeah,” Third slowly got up. He seemed calmer and relief washed over Khai. That is until he noticed Third feeling around the side of the wall, looking for the lightswitch.

“Wait, don't!” Khai shouted and reached out to stop him, but it was too late.

Third stared at the dining table. Of course he had chosen that night not to clean up his midnight snack. The empty blood donation bag was resting on his table, a few escaped drops still dotting the wood.

“It’s not what it looks like!” Khai quickly stepped in front of the table to block the view, “Please don’t go back outside, I can explain, or maybe Milk should explain…”

“Milk? What does she even have to do with this? Khai, is that blood? Why the hell do you have an empty bag of blood?”

“I don’t know how to tell you this,” Khai took a deep breath, but still couldn’t look Third in the eye, “I’m a vampire, okay?”

Third was silent for a while, which was terrifying. Was he going to leave now that he knew? This was probably all his fault in the end. If he hadn’t pursued Milk and just stayed happy with his friends none of this would’ve happened.

“I was right,” Third whispered. “Holy shit I was right. You have brain damage don’t you? And now you think you’re a vampire? Oh my god, did you steal that blood? Please tell me you didn’t drink actual blood, Khai. I’m taking you to the hospital right now.”

“No! Just let me call Milk, she’s so much better at this,” Khai grabbed onto Third’s arm, pleading, “Listen to her please. I promise I’ll go to the hospital with you if you don’t believe her.”

Third stared at him for a few moments before he answered, “Fine, but don’t you dare go back on your promise.”
