‘I don’t have to help you at all.’

I felt the smile freeze on my face, my features becoming a mask of horror. He was right. And why shouldn't he turn me in? It wasn't like I had anything to use against him, nothing that would keep me from being burned.

Again, I stood up and went to sit at the front of the bus. Jesse didn't stop me this time.

Stupid, Stupid Gabby. Why did I have to be so incredibly dense? I had to have seen this coming.

Sitting back, I stared dejectedly out the window. What now? I would have to run from all vampires, for fear that they would turn me in. All alone.

When the tears started streaming down my face, I didn't do anything to stop them, letting the waves of confusion and hopelessness wash over me.

The End
