Burdened by a great “hunger”

I was walking home after a trip to the grocery shop, when ahead of me I noticed shadows, and loud moaning.
“It’s not even that late…Damn, love be in the air, huh?”
I thought to myself, and quickened my pace.
Trying to ignore the shadows in front of me, hidden behind a phone booth, I walked with my gaze down, but then one of the shadows fell.
With a great *thud*, the body of a man fell, and rolled over slightly.
The man was extremely pale, and sweaty, but still alive.
On his neck, two punctured holes were still bleeding slightly.
“Oh no, I hope it’s not what I think it is.”
I thought, before the other shadow appeared in the light.
It was a tall, beautiful woman.
She was blessed in proportions, wearing a revealing red dress, and having an immaculate white long hair.
“Please, don’t tell me that I am the dessert or something, that would be too cliché.
Also, is he alive?”
I told her.
“Splendid, the dessert is… You knew what I wanted to say?
Perhaps are you a Child of the Night of some sorts as well?
And yes, he’s alive, a tad bit weakened for a while, but alive.”
She asked, in a sweet, and curious voice.
“No, but I’ve read one too many novels, and I wished your lines would be somewhat…original…”
I said, sighing.
“Aren’t you afraid?”
She asked, stepping closer.
Her skin was jade-like, and her lips, redder than blood.
As she smiled, her eyes glistened, while small fangs could be seen amongst her pure white teeth.
“Here, take a sip, and leave.
I have a movie premiere to catch.”
I said, pointing to my neck.
“Are you mocking me?”
The woman asked.
“You are a vampire.
“Burdened by the great hunger, the children of night must feed”, isn’t that right?”
I asked.
She froze a bit, before bursting into laughter.
“Haha! Aren’t you embarrassed to say something like that?
Oh my…I will need to tell the others about this”
She said, still laughing.
I felt blood rushing to my cheeks, and coughed to ease the feeling of embarrassment.
“Well, if you aren’t going to feed on me, then I shall go.
See ya.”
I said, trying to get pass her.
But a hand grabbed my shoulder.
“Don’t be in such a hurry.”
She whispered in my ear, sending shivers down my spine.
Being so close to me, I could smell her fragrance….roses, a bit of honey and…blood.
“W-w-what’s up?”
I asked, gulping.
“Nothing, here, take my number.”
She said, giving me a name card.
*Rose –real estate agent*
Was written on the card, with her number on it.
“Why? Why would you give away your identity, and number so easily?
Are you bored, or an idiot, maybe?”
I asked.
She pinched my side, and knocked on my head.
It hurt really bad.
“I find you interesting, so I hope we will keep in touch.
But stop being so rude, and talk politely with me.
After all, I am a lady.”
She said.
I just nodded, as I watched her hoist the man with one arm, and leaving in a dark alley.
“Lady with monstrous strength…”
I chuckled to myself, before leaving.
While I was walking, I was constantly fidgeting with the blood red and golden name card I was given…
