I alway snuck out of the apartment after a fight. It was the best time to get out without worrying you were gonna have a furious vampire flying your way or a blood thirsty wolf. I sigh as I get out of the elevator. The place is calm and actually a lovely area. No one knows in the building about whats happening on the top floor. I make sure of that.

Its why I have to head to the herb shop so often. I go in grabbing the herbs whose names would confuse any human. Which is when I see him. The human who started this mess. "Hi, Sam" I whisper as I approach the counter putting the stuff down. "What you doing here?"

He laughs nervously. "Get pulled into a rivalry between a werewolf and vampire over your love you can't really go back can you" he says pushing a hand through his hair. I nod. "That's-"

"I know" I say handing him the exact change as I put the herbs and bottle of liquid into my satchel. I look at him and tilt my head. "Are you okay?"

"I'm f-"

"Speak only the truth" I interupt. He sighs heavily looking at his hand on the counter.

"No, I'm not. One minute I'm working as a small newspaper coffee boy and now..." he trails off. I nod understanding immediatly how he's feeling. I put a hand on his shoulder.

"You can call me if you ever need help" I say.

"You live right next to them though" he mumbles. "I don't wanna see them really"

"Then we'd meet somewhere else" I say pulling a pad and pen out of my bag. I scribble down my number and rip it off handing it to him. "Now, I better get back. Got to put the wards up again. Elena knocked several of them down"

Sam smiles slightly and I smile back before turning and leaving. "Thank you" he calls. I stop at the door looking back.

"No problem" I tell him. Then I exit into the calming streets.

The End
