100 Ghost Stories Counting Down To Halloween 2018 #35


In a sea of sailor moon uniforms, one could pick her out of the hundreds of schoolgirls who crowded the food court at Ala Moana shopping center.
Letta stands out from her school sisters because she is not a follower like they are. At such a young age she has a mature sense of herself and is not bothered by the thoughts and opinions of others. Even her teachers are taken aback at how easy it is to converse with her on their level. Naturally, some of her schoolmates become jealous and corner her in the bathroom during a time when students are supposed to transition from one class to the other. It's Denise Invosey and her two hangers on; a smaller rotund girl named Dusty and a taller awkward one whose parents named her Ariel because they thought she'd been born with red hair when in fact it was lite colored blood on her scalp.

"Bitch, think you're better than all of us? Kissing ass to the teachers?" Denise stood there with one hand resting on her hip while she pointed aimlessly in the air with the other.

"You think I'm better than all of you, I don't think that," Letta let out a sigh as if she realized she'd been talking to infants. She pushed past them to use the bathroom but the three girls pushed her back.

"Watch how you talk to our friend bitch," Dusty spoke with a lisp that made her spit spray through her teeth unintentionally.

Ariel pushed right up against Letta because her size was all she had to make her feel important. Otherwise, she wasn't very smart or athletic but Denise had a use for her as the strong arm in her trio.

"I can see that I'm never going to get to use the bathroom unless I address this right away," Letta said to herself. There was no time to think, Letta grabbed Ariel's face with both hands and inserted her thumbs very quickly into her eyes. Ariel let out a horrible shriek and recoiled to the floor as if she were the wicked witch who just had water thrown on her by Dorothy. In a flash, Letta spun around and delivered a straight punch to Dusty's mouth and broke three of her front teeth. Grabbing her by the hair, Letta pulled Dusty in for a headlock. It was there that she slowly approached  Denise while simultaneously punching Dusty in the face again and again. Dusty screamed in pain and made several attempts to free herself from Letta's hold but Letta was unexpectedly strong.

"All I wanted to do was use the bathroom and now you've made me late for my next class,"  Letta's eyes pierced through Denise's soul. The girl was riveted to the spot and could not move. "I'll have an excuse and they'll believe me."

Denise made a mad dash for the bathroom door but Letta cut her off with a roundhouse punch to the kidneys. Tumbling to the floor in excruciating pain, Denise vomited out the spam musubi and Fritos she'd eaten earlier that morning. Letta grabbed a hand full of Denise's hair and rubbed her face in her own bile. Reaching under her skirt, Letta tore Denise's underwear away and balled it up in her hand. "So you're aware that I am not the one to fuck with," she grabbed Denise by the wrist and held her arm out so that her elbow faced up toward her. Lifting her left knee above waist level, Letta gave a small pivot with her other foot and brought her heel down on the girl's joint and broke it in half. Quickly she knelt to the floor and stuffed Denise's own underwear in her mouth so that no one would hear her shrieks of pain.

"Normally, I'd kill the three of you but there are people who are on the lookout for my kind. Today you'ver earned yourself a pass, you get to live." Letta got up and walked to the stall where she was able to relieve herself in a sort of peace and quiet. After, she went over to the sink and washed her hands and smiled briefly at her victims who were petrified to see that she had fangs protruding from her upper and lower teeth. "Proper schoolgirl by day, a vampire by night. I'm not sure what I'll do once I've exhausted all the animals at the humane society? I shall have graduated by then.....and I'll move on to some other girls school somewhere else in the world. Don't be tardy for class now."



"There's one somewhere," Alan Higashi said while swiping through his iPad. "It's close but I don't know where."

"If it's going through the animals at the humane society then it's either in Mo'ili'ili, Kaimuki, Palolo, Saint Louis Heights, or McCully," Just as void of an answer as Alan was, Piker scratched his head while going over old maps of the area. "You think it could be at U.H.?"

"Nah," Alan replied. "It would expect to be found there,"

"Geeze," Piker exhaled. "This is like in the Godfather where Sonny can't figure out where Luca Brasi is."

"Except we already know that Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes," Alan replied. At that moment the two gave one another a look of pure and utter shock. They knew where the vampire was. be continued
