There was something weird about him, though I couldn't tell what it was. As I sipped my coffee, I must have kept staring at him, trying to make out what it was and he smiled, noticing me turning my eyes towards him every other second. He was eating his bacon and eggs, in a way that made me think he had all the time in the world, as if he would live forever so he didn't need to worry about the passing of time like mortals do.
As he sat there, peacefully eating his breakfast, and as I sat a few chairs away from him, steadily sipping my coffee, he suddenly lifted his fork in a greeting, making a gesture of friendliness, saying would you care to join me? Only then did I notice that it was unusually quiet in the lunchroom, and that him and me were the only persons in the room. I looked around, but seeing no one else (even the owner was somewhere else at that time) I said sure and got up to take my coffee to a seat opposite to him. He watched me as I came closer, probably because I had stared at him. He didn't say anything, neither did I. I didn't feel the need to say anything yet. As he took another bite, he looked up with his head still down and then it struck me. It was his eyes. There were so strange, so pale, that they seemed to shine over his whole face. So unreal yet so beautiful. A tingling feeling went through my body and I just had to look away. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to embarres you he said, smiling. I smiled back, not knowing what else to do. Need more coffee? he offered, lifting the can that he had ordered. No thanks, that's OK I replied, still amazed about this eyes and his warm smile.
I had never seen him there before. And I had never seen it so quiet in there at this hour. The whole situation was so weird, I knew something would happen. So I just waited.

He was from Colorado, or so he said. We chatted about little things, we laughed about silly things. He had this incredible way of making me feel comfortable. At a certain point in the conversation, he came to notice the necklace I was wearing, a piece my mother had given me a long time ago. He seemed to like it a lot. Can I see it? he asked, so I put it off and handed it over. As he admired it, I realized another weird feature of his looks. His teeth were all too white to be real, or so it seemed, and they made his smile look more sincere. His teeth were a bit pointy too.
That's very beautiful he said. Shall I put it back around your neck? Hesitantly I looked him in the eye, but he had already risen from his chair and teasingly said Oh, come on. Worst thing that I can do is bite you. Now would that be so bad? I laughed, but as he came closer, holding my necklace in his one hand and pulling back his long hair with his other, I noticed two little dots at the side of his neck. Not alarmed yet, I turned my head away, so he could reach my neck. A beautiful necklace, on a beautiful neck, which will be my first real breakfast on a long time... I felt something stinging in my neck, his teeth, I'm sure it were. No pain. No feeling. Just the alteration. After that, I haven't felt anything anymore. The only thing I feel is thirst.

For blood.

I'll admit that the title doesn't do it for me, but the tone of the story certainly does. Never trust strangers, indeed - 'specially those from Colorado. (Kidding, kidding, Colorado's all right. ^^) The use of colored text as opposed to actual dialogue is a neat touch, gives it sort of an otherworldly feeling. Good stuff.

haha, kewl story.
Funny but I didn't see it coming ˙ntil he offered to put the necklace back on (at first I though he would just rob her, then I thought with his charm he would bespell her to actually give him the necklace, and only then did the idea struck me that this could very well be a vamp story.

I'm not so sure how much trust has to do with it
nor has any objective harm been unambiguously indicated
granted an inconvienient chainge in diet may be a bit awkward ... ~12
