Surprise

 

After I practically ruined the bathroom, Billy had to clear it up and Michael hid in my room. I shut my eyes tightly as I stood in my room aware of my audience. I was wishing that this was all just one big dream but that big dream had burst into reality. I opened my eyes and Michael was standing right in front of me. When I had my eyes shut I couldn't hear footsteps or breathing I could only hear my uneven breathing, but he was a vampire. He saw the shock on my face and he smiled angelically, taking this all in was hard for me to much drama to soon, the last thing I needed was more drama. I took a deep breath.

"I'm going to go and get myself cleaned up and I'm going to school" I said proudly to prove I wasn't shocked or ill. I went through my normal routine. I normally didn't want to go to school, but I wanted my life back I wanted all this to end. I didn't bother saying bye to Michael he knew the way out. I went down stairs and when to get my back pack. I hovered around the table where Billy was sitting reading the news paper; he gently put the paper down.

"Where do you think you going" He said gingerly. I groaned knowing he was going to say that some time. I sat down on the chair and looked Billy in the eye.

"Dad I'm fine I don't need to go to the doctors and I promise that I will go to the school nurse. I promise." I said pleading.

"fine, but your not fit to drive, I'll drop you off" he said looking for his keys I herd a rattle.

"But-" I was stopped half way through my sentence, there was a knock on the door. I automatically got up and headed for the door. When I opened it my eyes widened in shock.

"Unbelievable" I mumbled quietly to myself but loud enough so that Michael could hear. Billy got up and moved me out of the way, I blissfully move out of the way, and made a face at him knowing that Billy would say no to him what ever he was thing about.

"Can I help you" Billy said politely.

"Yeah, I'm one of Alison's good friends and I herd about what happened, I was driving through the neighborhood and was wandering if Alison would like a ride with me to school" He said innocently.

"Yeah, that's okay with me" Billy got my bag and gave it to me he had a smug look on his face. I gave him a sharp look.

"What was that for" I said acidly. He didn't answer. I gave him a worried look.

"What's wrong?, look it was nice of you but I can drive you no" I said looking out at the grey miserable weather.

"You'll find out, and actually I'm saving you a lot of grief" He said in a acid tone. The rest of the journey was quite and awkward. Once we got to school I gave he another look, wanting answers.

"What's wrong?" I said through my teeth.

"Your going to find out" Hardly anyone was at school he came around to my side and opened the door, he grabbed my wrist with a tight grip.

"Where are we going? I'm not moving until you tell me" I said like a five year old. He was much stronger with me and he didn't answer, I in and followed him. We where headed for the reception.

"Do we have you go and see the nurse I'm not sick, it was some bad food I probably ate" I complied; I hated any thing to do with blood, or any thing to do with the doctors. I followed knowing that I'd have to go one way or another. Once we got there he whispered into my hair.

"I'll be right back and don't try to run away, remember vampire" He said this acidly. I stormed off to the office. I tried to make out what he was saying, but I couldn't make it out he spoke to fast. A couple of minutes later he came back and grabbed my arm. I sluggishly trailed after him. When we got there I sat on the chair waiting. Michael had his arm around me trying to comfort me even though it didn't work. His cold hands were behind my shoulder. When the nurse came she had a needle in her hand. I gave a shocked looked at Michael, he knew I hated needles. He put his cold hands on my arm, I didn't understand why though.

"Right, Alison we need to do a few test and I'll need to check you blood" The nurse came close with the needle in her hand. I buried my head in Michael's chest. When I looked up the nurse was getting a plaster to put on my arm. I sat up and it was over, now I knew why I didn't hurt, Michael put is hand on my arm so that my arm could go numb.

"Their, now do you just want stay here for awhile" She said, she looked at Michael in a weird way.

"Yes that will be fine" Michael said and smiled.  He turned to me.

"Look I'm sorry, I'm just worried about you" He said looking down.

"When you said "Saving me a lot more grief, what did you mean" I looked into his hypnotic eyes. They were pitch black, and under his eyes were purple lines, I traces them with my finger. When I got to his lips my finger trembled.

"Your going to find out, I'm really sorry" He had fire burning behind his words. I looked at him confused, by what I could see he had fear in his eyes.

When the nurse came back she looked at me with sorry eyes, I gave the same glace to Michael. She had a note in her hands. She gave it to me and went out the door. What was it to her if I was ill to not, I've been ill before. I scanned the note there was one word which struck me. Breast Cancer I mouthed to my self.

"This can't be true, there must be some misunderstanding" Inside I knew it was true but I didn't want to take it. I had engulfed so much in to little time now I truly knew what  Michael meant.  Michael had a poker face on. I felt tears take over me. I buried my head into his chest, it was cold and hard. After a few minutes Michael cleared his throat. I lifted my head up from his chest. For a vampire he was really caring, not what I would have expected.

"No, it's right, I'm sorry" He mummbled. I shook my head in denail not wanted it to be true. Wanting this to all end.

The End
