Chapter 12. Growth

The weeks went by in a peaceful blur.

Zell was getting pretty good at guitar. He was even making some money from songwriting.

My woodworking improved just enough that I could scrape together my rent from furniture sales.

Our neighbor Caleb, also a vampire, would come over to practice sparring with Zell, but Zell was terrible at vampire duels. He lost every time.

And I didn’t have anything against our neighbor, but sometimes Caleb would creepily watch us…

…and then he’d smirk, as if he knew some secret about us. It made me just a little uncomfortable.

But, I think, for the first time in my life, I was happy.

I decided one day to harvest fruit from Zell’s weird tree and make him a salad.

“Thoughts?” I asked.

“Benji,” replied Zell. “This is the most delicious thing I have ever eaten in my entire life.”

I believed him, too, because he ate three more bowls of it in one sitting.

“You saw that, didn’t you? I’m getting pretty good…”
