2021.10.27 00:35 KylerForYou The Dangers of Online Dating
It always starts with something simple, something painless, something… unaware. No risk, no reward, but whatever- I was lonely, and I wanted to mix up the monotonous routine I had fallen into.
"Is for horses!" I replied with a "!" to feign some sort of excitement to this person in a digital portrait. Anthony, it says.
"How are you doing, Anthony? Any plans tonight?" I ask back without the slightest hint of shame. Go ahead, screenshot this and send it to your friends. Send it to them and say SHE WANTS THE D BRO. I don't care.
"Woah! Frisky one aren't we ;)" he says. It's exactly the type of response I was expecting. Still, even I am a little surprised at how he came to the conclusion that what he just sent me was the best response to get anywhere. The 30 under his name must stand for IQ, I say to myself and decide to continue the conversation.
"Haha- no. Just wondering if you wanted to meet for coffee or something? I don't really have any plans tonight, and I'd rather go on a date than chat on here."
"Isn't it a little late? I mean I got work tomorrow."
"It's fine. I was just offering. Have a good night." I respond before throwing my phone on the other side of my bed. Within seconds, it lights up with a response. I ignore it. Then it lights up with another. Then another.
"No no no no"
"I was JK"
"It says you're pretty far away. I can meet you at this bar in the middle, when do you want to be there?"
I open my phone and read all of the message receipts before deciding whether or not to unlock my phone. I am starving, and there is a really really nice diner not so far from the bar he said he wanted to meet at.
"How about KJ's in about 30?" I reply before putting my phone down and starting to get ready. I didn't need to see his excited response.
"More coffee, hun?" The sweet waitress asks me, and I give her a smile and nod my head. I really enjoy her; she's part of the atmosphere that makes this place so special. She matches the decor- she goes right along with the old school checkered pattern floor, and the metal tables with obnoxious red booths, booths that I might add that match this old waitress's red-striped dress that even has that old school pouch where they keep the checks and straws. They don't make em like this anymore. I love this place I say to myself, it's like being b-
Two bright white lights pull up and snap me out of my admiration. The big black beat up pickup truck parked exactly outside the spot where my table was at, and its glare came through the window to hit me right in the face. For a second, it had felt like someone were shining a flashlight on an old fossil that they had found.
I stared out the large window into the passenger seat to see a silhouette of a man sitting in the driver's seat. The silhouette doesn't move for a few moments. Without even seeing this person's eyes, I can tell that me and my date, Anthony, were in a staring contest. He was thinking whether he should turn his car off or just back up and drive from wherever he came. Finally, the staring battle ended, and he turned his car off and opened his door. +1 to my self-esteem.
I hear the door to the diner open, and moments later, I see the man from the profile in front of me. Except he has dark aviator sunglasses on and is wearing a black trench coat with the collar popped up.
"Hey, nice to meet you," I say, before blurting out the only thought that crosses my mind. "Is everything okay?"
"Oh, what? You mean the specs and the coat? Yeah, everything is okay! I just like to keep it casual on the first date, ya know? Coat is from a family friend. Says it's a good luck charm."
And he pulls the glasses down to give me a quick wink, a wink so fast I don't think I have actually seen his eyes.
I guess I didn't mind. Without the glasses and the trench coat, this is who the profile said he was, which is often times not exactly what you get when you step into the online dating world. Besides, I was basically able to see his whole face. It's just anyone looking from the sides that wouldn't be able to see.
To my surprise, the date was going well. He asked me about myself enough to actually open up, and he seemed genuinely interested in some of the things I was saying. We had a whole bunch in common, which was nice, in fact, he preferred a lot of the same things that I did. He liked the nighttime more than the day, he enjoyed reading, and he had a similar affection to this old-time diner we were in. A couple of times, he even said, "They really don't make 'em like this no more." Which strengthened the attraction I felt to this man. In another life, I could see myself spending a lot of time with this Antony fellow.
He didn't order any food, instead he just joined me on the coffee. One time, the waitress asked us for more, and he pulled his aviator sunglasses down and said, "Sure would, and I'll have some of you later." to which the waitress I both laughed. As it was getting later in the night, I decided I wanted to go a bit further with Anthony, so I got close to his ear and whispered, "I'm gonna go run to the bathroom, I might be a little while but when I get out, why don't you and I go somewhere a bit more private? And watched the grin grow on his face as I made my way to the ladies' room. I even left my phone on the table, so he knew I was coming back.
I was in there for about 10 minutes, and when I came back, Anthony was standing at the door.
"Oh," I said. "We're leaving?"
"Yes, ma'am," he said and opened the door. "Paid the bill and everything."
"Thank you, Anthony, that was very sweet of you," I said as I stood on my tip-toes to give him a quick kiss on the lips, which must have caught him off guard as he turned away suddenly.
"Uhhh, I wasn't expecting that one sug. Nice preview for later, though" he said as his face went from concerned to the happy-welcoming expression that was on his face the entire night. We left the restaurant and I followed him to his car, but on the way there I noticed a weird taste in my mouth. Did I kiss him too hard? Maybe I hit his lip or something with my teeth, because I swear after kissing him, my mouth tasted like blood.
"You good, darling?" He asked, and unpopped the collar from his black coat, and finally took off his sunglasses to reveal his face for the first time. Though it was still dark, so I couldn't make out everything, it was at least nice to see him without the silly gear he had on.
"I'm good," I said, and the truck's lights came on to illuminate the spot in the restaurant where he and I had just had our first date. To my surprise, our table was exactly how I left it when I went to the bathroom. I had expected to see the waitress clear it off, but even with the truck's headlights shining into the diner, I couldn't find her anywhere.
We drove for a little while. He put on some old-time music that I adored. We sat in comfortable silence, occasionally making small flirtatious chit-chat along the way. Until I screamed out
"Shit! We have to go back!"
"What's the matter?"
"I left my phone on the table. I'm such a moron."
"Awww, you didn't think I'd forget something like that, did ya? I got it right here?" He said and pulled it out of his pocket.
I reached for it, but without taking his eyes off the road, he dropped it back into his pocket.
"Sorry sugar, I need all of your attention for this one, besides- we're almost there," he said as the truck changed direction and plowed over a curb into a dirt road that led into the woods that were on the side of the street we were on. The only reason I had even noticed the path was that we turned on it. Otherwise, it was damn near invisible from the main road. I was excited to see where he was taking me.
We drove down the road, except this time he had turned off the music, the only sound was the grunts of pleasure he had been making as we went down. Every time we had hit a large branch or a rock, I jumped, but his smile just seemed to grow wider, and his laugh just seemed to grow louder.
The moonlight through the surrounding trees illuminated his face from time to time, and I had noticed that his skin was much paler than I remembered it being in the diner. "Why are the lights off?" I asked in a terror-filled voice, and he simply replied, "Enjoy the ride while you can!" and started to chuckle again in his deep southern drawl.
I was trapped in his truck going down this dirt path deep into the woods with no light on, and I just closed my eyes and said to myself.
Can this just be over?
And then as if someone up there had answered my thought, I felt the truck reach a stop. I opened my eyes and looked around, and I noticed that the place he had taken me deep into the woods was just that. The woods. Nothing around for miles, and more importantly, no one to hear any screams that might come from this spot.
His eyes continued to look forward, this time, the grin was gone, and he just had a blank stare on his face, as if out the window there was some divine being that captured his attention.
"Well?" He said, without breaking his glare.
"Aren't you going to get out?" He asked in a commanding way. So I did just what he had said, I got out of the truck, walked in front of it, and began to look around. Only to find exactly what he wanted me to find. Nothing. The headlights illuminated what I knew was all around me, trees, nature, and silence. There was nowhere to go, nowhere to run to. Just the woods and darkness. If I were to run, he would find me. I came to the conclusion and as I did I looked up at the sky to see the full moon. I put all my attention to it, and that's when I heard feint footsteps and then the next thing I knew he had grabbed me by the back of my hair, and yanked my head back with a powerful unwordly force. I would have fallen entirely over if not for him catching me and holding my hair back to expose my neck.
He looked down at me, and our eyes met again, but this time I saw the blood-red eyes that he had hid all night with his sunglasses and in darkness, and the pale skin on his face began to wrinkle as his sick toothy smile began to grow two long fangs.
"Sorry, sugar… Didn't your momma ever tell you not to meet strangers at night?" He said in a deep, gurgling voice followed by a sinister laugh in the same tone.
"Didn't your momma ever tell you not to go out during a full moon?" I interrupted before my bones started moving into place.
"Wha? What are you doing?" He said in fear, as he started to let go of my hair, but luckily I had the wherewithal to grab onto his arm and as my grip becoming stronger, and stronger he began to yell and plead.
"No please! I'm sorry I- I didn't know!"
I kept ahold of him as I transformed, my face growing into its wolf-form and my sharp teeth forming a smile. It wasn't until my grey hair grew out that he had realized that he was completely fucked, and he started to yell for help.
"Help! Anyone! Werewolf!" He pleaded!
I couldn't help but laugh and then said to the thing in my grasp.
"I don't think anyone could hear you sug" before I started to bite into my prey.
It had been a long time since I had eaten a vampire, and I almost didn't want to come out tonight, but what can I say? I was hungry.
