Chapter 1: The Bite
This Halloween, not everyone at Hartfeld is as they seem...
Late one night, as Your Character and her friends walk back to the dorm after an off-campus part, Kaitlyn takes all her room-mates to the dorm through a short-cut through a graveyard, where she gets attacked and bitten by a vampire bat. She appears to look gorgeous and is very energetic the next morning despite the previous night's exhaustion. She also has trouble being in the sun. The next morning Your Character and Zack find Tripp passed out outside with bite marks on his neck, leaving them to deduce that Kaitlyn has turned into a vampire. Abbie, Tyler and Chris don’t seem to believe you and Zack, but seeing Kaitlyn transforming back from a bat convinces them.
Chapter 2: Blood Wanted
Kaitlyn is going to need blood. Lots of it. Can you and your friends help her satisfy her thirst?
All friends decide to help Kaitlyn by offering their blood to her. However, this leaves them all drained and exhausted. The roommates decide to get more people to volunteer, starting at the Kappa party. Your Character manage to get the jocks and nerds to volunteer too. Later that week, on a full moon night, Kaitlyn offers to turn her best friend into a vampire as well.
