Dolph dawdled on the way to school. He scented the air briefly, to see if there were any vampires nearby, and was reassured when only the scent of humans came to him. He wasn't in the mood for a fight right this minute. He passed a gang of human girls who were gossipping excitedly, and stopped to listen for a moment.
"Did you hear?" one said to another. "There was another murder last night." She shivered deliciously, once again the human reaction asserting itself, the thought that it had at least not happened to her, but to someone else. "They're not saying who it was, tho."
Dolph walked on. He felt annoyed, as the school would no doubt be locked down at lunch time, even tho none of the murders had ever occurred on school grounds or during the day time.
