This is the revision of my story Thirst, with a slight change of title becuase of a similar title that is posted here. Also, the final version has tried to address the first two comments I got here, so I hope it makes more sense now.
My first version had some comments talking about the story being somewhat confusing. I hope I made it less confusing, but I don't want to spell out everything from the beginning, or else I'll lose much of the suspense that I tried to create. In any case, this is the final version for contest purposes.
