Freddy Martinez and his friend, Cara, are two fearless young lads. Nothing ever could trigger fear in them, and they are proud of this trait. It is this fearlessness that help them explore a lot of things not known to anyone. One day, they were playing hockey in Freddy's basement and got into some friendly combat. Freddy pushed Cara, and Cara accidentally hits over a large china cabinet. This revealed to them a secret door. The boys opened the door and saw a dark tunnel that intrigued them to go down the basement and explore it.
Curious and enthusiastic, they took flashlights and went down. There they found an empty coffin. They opened it and saw a weird looking bottle lying inside the coffin. Freddy picked it up with inquisitiveness and found a label on it that read "Vampire Breath". Seeing the label excited them more, and they started to fight over who was going to open the bottle. During this juvenile act of tussle for the bottle, they dropped it, and it broke spewing out unpleasant smoke. The repercussion marked an end to their fearlessness as the basement then had a vampire who was very thirsty. This scared them, and what they did next is something you should look out for. It takes interesting turns with unexpected events that hook the readers.
