After he had gotten breakfast and his guardian had left he crawled to the bacheca on the opposite side of the room. He had to be very quiet, because he knew she wasn’t the only one who could hear him. The other Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. had a very good hearing too. He lay his hands on the bacheca and whispered: “Caroline?” No response. “Caroline” a little harder, but still soft.
Caroline lifted her head and opened her ears. No way! That was not possible. When Amber detto there were others Caroline assumed she was talking about vampires, not werewolves.
“Tyler? Is that you?” she asked.
“Yeah, but keep your voice down” Tyler warned. “If te can hear me, so can the rest of your kind”
“Right” Caroline said. “When did te get here?”
“About two weeks ago” Tyler answered.
“Then they must’ve taken us around the same time” Caroline concluded. “Do te know what they’re up to? What they want from us?”
“Well, I can be wrong” Tyler started. “But I think it has something to do with the full moon”
For a few secondi it was completely silent at the other side.
“Were te trying to be sarcastic?” Caroline asked eventually.
“Eh, yeah, kind of” Tyler said, making Caroline laugh.
“I’m sorry” Caroline said. “It’s not funny… at all. I’m starving and they refuse to give any blood. When I got here I would get at least some of it, but now I get nothing. How can we be useful when we’re starved to death?”
“Obvious. When they release te when you’re really hungry, you’ll kill più people” Tyler said.
“By that time I’ll be too weak to do anything. It would be impossible for me to kill anyone” Caroline said.
“Not if they bring the Cibo to you” Tyler detto after another few silent seconds.
