Asha: Complications

I liked Jay showing me around. He was friendly, and didn't seem to mind the fact that I was on edge the whole time. I just kept expecting him to attack me. I couldn't remember the last time I'd had a proper conversation with another vampire without having to run off. It was nice, but strange at the same time. It helped that I liked Jay. He was cute, and kind to me. He made me feel welcome and I found myself relaxing more than I had done in a long time. From time to time, I caught a look from him, as though he was seeing me for the first time all over again. Each time, I got a strange, shivery-warm feeling, and looked away, shyly.

I was slowly warming to the Mansion, and we came accross a couple of people, who Jay introduced as Sylvester (another good-looking guy but seemed a bit tense.. I wondered what his story was) and Sara (she seemed sweet, but a little upset about something)  I didn't comment on these observations to Jay though. If I was going to hang around, I might aswell find some things out for myself.

We finished up in the hallway that we started in.

"So, you running from someone or something?" he asked, hesitant.

That comment put me back on edge again.

Why did he have to go and say that? I was just starting to like him...

I stayed quiet for a bit. I didn't want to lie, but if he found out about my past, he would definately not be as nice as he had been. Something must have showed on my face because he hurriedly said

"Its ok, you dont have to talk about it if you don't want to"

I looked up, making a quick decision

"I ran into some hunters earlier, I got away, but I got hurt aswell- they burned me with holy silver.. I guess I'm still feeling a little off from that. I should get some rest I guess. "

It was weak, but better than him knowing everything. I gave him another smile, and turned to go to my room. I would have spent more time with Jay, but I really was still feeling bad from the silver, and Jay's question had stirred up some things I wanted to keep locked away.

"I'll see you later, Jay" I said over my shoulder, pausing on the first stair.

The End
