Why is it that when I like a guy they always seem to end up unconcious. This time it wasn't my fault. I was furious at Sidney for knocking Marcus out like that, it was uncalled for.
Going underground was scarier than I thought. Sidney stopped to talk to this girl, I think they said her name was Ivy but Luke and I followed the man carrying Marcus. He put him down on a bed in the corner of the room. It felt like a hospital ward. I hated hospitals.
'I will be back in a moment.' Sidney's uncle left us.
I sat on the end of the bed and watched Marcus' face waiting for his eyes to open. I felt Luke's hand on my shoulder.
'He'll be OK you know. It comes with the whole vampire thing, we're pretty hard to get rid of.' I appreciated his efforts to make the mood light but I still couldn't laugh. 'I saw the two of you. When you kissed him.' I couldn't look at Luke, he must hate me.
'You probably never want to see me again.'
'No. I like you Violet, just as a friend.' Although I felt a slight wave of relief at hearing this there was also a sharp stab of pain as he finally said he wasn't interested. 'You two will make a great couple.'
