Darkness Within

Cold, wet, hard, were the first things I thought of when I woke up. I slowly opened my eyes, and was overcome by an excruciating pain. It felt like someone was holding a hot iron to my throat, and I didn't know what to do to make it stop. Clutching my throat, I looked around, taking in my surroundings. Where the hell am I?It looked like an abandoned warehouse, with its cement floor, and boarded up windows. I got up slowly, trying to remember how I got here, but all I could recall was darkness. I felt the memory deep down but there was something blocking it and I couldn't access it.I began walking towards the doors that led to outside, the agonizing pain in my throat seemed to be getting worse. It was dark out but I was determined to get home to my family. I started walking down the street, no idea where I'm heading.I spotted a woman walking towards me, we were at least 20 feet apart, and I could hear her heart beat, feel her pulse, and hear the blood flowing through her veins. What was happening? It felt like there was a thread pulling me towards this woman; the closer I got to her, the more my throat burned. I felt myself losing control of my body and mind, than instantly pounced upon this woman and sank my teeth in her neck.Her scream pierced the air before she passed out. I was so hungry for her blood that I didn't realize how harsh I was being until I heard her neck snap. Once I heard that, I regained my focus and instantly let her go where her body crumpled to the floor.
