My vision was a blur; I had no motivations to get up today. I saw a light figure. My eyes squinted, so that I could get a clearer picture. It was Iris; she had her hair tide back into a neat pony. She had a blue pleated skirt, and a white blouse.
"Are you going to school" I asked sleepily, yawning. She nodded; I rubbed my eyes with the back of my smooth hands. I still had my cloths on but my duvet was pulled up, and my shoes were off. I could see that iris had been crying, her eyes said it all it was like they were shouting at me.
"Iris!" Anna called from the bottom of the stairs. She walked over to me and kissed my forehead, I smiled and flinched away. She walked down stairs; I could hear her light footsteps. I herd the door shut and a bus pull up. I pushed my hairs out of my eyes, I still had my necklace on, and the sun gave sparks. When I got up my head felt worse, like this was all a dream. I shook my head furiously, and stubble into the bath room. I took my pills, my hands shook. I griped the pill and swallowed them down. I stubbed down stairs.
"Good morning sleepy head!" Anna said from the kitchen. I felt something hit my leg as I walked, I frowned and carried on. I scraped a chair back. Anna was sat with a newspaper, with her designer reading glasses.
"What was wrong with Iris?" I asked grabbing a banana form the fruit bowl, I looked at the patterns; they made out faces of people screaming, and people crying. I shut my eyes, and shook my head shaking the image out of my head.
"She wanted to sit home with you" Anna said looking up from her newspaper.
"You two seem to get along quite long!" She mumbled from her newspaper.
"Yeah you could say that" I said taking small bites.
"So how are things at school?" She asked putting her newspaper down, I pretend to look at the floor when I spoke.
"Good, got some test coming up that all really!" I mumbled fiddling with the necklace.
"How's Juliet?" She asked slyly.
"Good" I mumbled.
"Alex?" She asked, I blushed she brushed my cheek with the back of my hand.
"Billy didn't tell you, did he?" She frowned.
"He got ran over" I mumbled.
"Oh, honey I'm so sorry, I should have called!" I mumbled to her self.
"It's okay, don't worry" I said rubbing the back of her warm hands. My phone rand, I cringed trying to hide it. That was what was hitting the back of my leg. I looked at it, it was Michael. I gulped down, and smiled weakly hiding my fear. I flipped it up and pulled it to my ear.
"Hello" I mumbled.
"Hi, I was just wondering how you were?" He said innocently.
"I'm fine thanks!" I said back confused.
"Good, now listen to me very carefully get up and go upstairs, once you get there go to your room" I murmured got up, and walked out of the room, and went up stairs, I sharply turned to my room, I still had my phone up to my ear.
"Right now go your window and open it" He ordered stiffly, I moved my body towards the window, and opened it with all my strength. There was a gust of wind that travelled in-between my knotted hair.
"Now step back" He ordered in the same harsh tone as before. I stepped back immediately and hung up on the phone. Michael jumped in; I automatically wrapped my arms around his waist. He felt so unreal in my arms, he was all mine. I inhaled his scent.
"I couldn't leave you for another minute" I mumbled softly into my knotted hair.
"Have you heard anything so far" I asked eagerly.
"No, you see I can't interact with him, but Hailey she's connected to him, because they've met before and there brains are linked. It's a vampire thing" He mumbled, I pulled a smile.
"Please don't leave" I said as he tried to get lose of my grip, with out hurting me.
"I'm not, don't worry" I said, hugging me again.
"See, we can't stay away from each other, if I became a..." I stopped and look up at his face.
"Please" I mumbled, weakly.
"Can we not talk about this now" I moaned. I nodded.
"Alison honey, are you okay?" Anna asked from the bottom of the stairs.
"Yep, just coming, I just dropped my phone" I mumbled.
"Stay here, okay" He nodded, and kissed me lightly on my lips, it felt so right, like we were meant to be. The universe had made its mind.
"But I still need to talk to you" He said regretfully. I frowned, and went down stairs. Anna was in the hall way.
"So who is he?" She asked playfully. I dug my nails into the palm of my clammy hands.
"W-who?" I stuttered trying to act cool but I wasn't going to plan.
"Michael, the one who called you" My fingers unravelled.
"Just a guy" I mumbled, walking past her into the living room.
"Oh" She said, knowing that I was lying.
"Guess what? I was talking to Harley and he said you could live here" She said excited, she hugged me it hurt a little.
"I-I can't, what about school, and..." I mumbled, I fought to push the tears back.
"Well you can start here, and it will be like Turing over a new leaf."
"Aw, please mom, I want to stay with Billy, and Juliet!" I mumbled.
"She can come over like the good old times!" she rubbed my shoulders.
"No mom, those were back times, Juliet wouldn't pick up her phone, my grads dropped down, and you got drunk every now and then" I protested. Her face dropped down. I sighed and look up to see her face.
"Sorry, I've just got a headache" I mumbled.
"It's okay honey" I gave her a warm smile.
"Mom, where does Harley work?" I asked her as I was headed out for the door.
"Oh, he owns this fight company" I said.
"Oh, that explains a lot" I mumbled to my self. I went up stairs in a hurry. Michael was sat on the bed, his eyes were dark, hand his face was pale and chalky.
"We have to leave now" He hissed.
"No, we can't!" I said not taking no for an answer.
"We have to, we have completely lost track we don't know where Christopher is, I can't leave you on your own!" He said, grabbing my bad from under the bed. What about Iris? What about my mom? I hadn't even gotten to know Chad
"Leave a note for your mom, say you had to go!" He said rushing around. I ran into Iris's small pink room, I stubble around looking for paper. I found a pink piece under her bed. I grabbed a crayon and scribbled down that I had to leave, it wasn't very neat but she would get the picture, Anna will understand. Once and ran back into my room every think was tidy, my bags in the middle. I felt a discrete tear roll down my rosy cheeks.
"We have to go now!" He hissed in the same acidic tone. I knew I had to go, it was the only option.
"Okay" I mumbled. He kissed my forehead.
"I love you, and I'm not letting you get hurt" I nodded.
"We have to go from the window, so hold on tight" He said.
"Oh and why have you got light pale olive skin but either Anna or Billy does?" He asked he had a tight grip of my tights; I was resting on his back, my head on his shoulders.
"Well it's my grandma; she was from India and was a hippy. But Anna hasn't got the genes. It's all very confusing" I said trying to take it in my self.
"Okay" He mumbled confusedly.
"Come on we don't want to get caught up in rush hour" He said, before I could argue he leaped, the wind slapped my face, my hair blew in the wind it tangled between it self. It felt too unreal, but yet it was real, I hadn't even got changed, or brushed my teeth. I felt a light halt and we were on the ground. I took a deep breath.
"Next time (Breath) not so fast!" I said out of breath.
"Sorry!" He mumbled, not paying attention. There was the black sleek car, at the back of the house down the alleyway. My fingers felt cold, and they were a bluish, my cheeks were a rosy pink colour which blended in well into my pale face. I got it, it was so warm, welcoming the scent was sweet, and there was the light sound of the car purring.
"Get some sleep, you look...." He gentle words faded out into blackness. I was in a dark room, my mouth felt dry, my nostrils flared, my eyes opened. I had netted black gloves, and my hair was neatly done up. My body felt strong, and the image was crystal clear. There were lots of people around me, one man with light blond hairs, and black eyes, he had a delicate clock on his back. He gave me a warm gentle smile; it felt like someone had taken my soul out of me and had put it in someone else's body. He reached his pale hands out. I looked down and I was wearing a black dress, which flowed down at the back leaving a trail. The mysterious man got hold of my hand, I should have been shaking like mad, but my hand was firm and still. I took a deep breath; the dryness still conquered my throat. I lead me forwards; there were several other men, also in black capes, which looked like some. He lead me to a small white room, the windows open, the daylight realised my body, like it was lifting me. There as a long mirror, it was the only object in the mysterious room. I looked into the long magical mirror there was a beautiful girl there, red lips, pale skin, and no blush. She had a slight olive tone which bought out her golden eyes. It was me. I felt my face, it felt warm
and right. The man was gone; I looked around the room no one was there. I closed my eyes, I heard a light pin drop, and it sounded like that anyway I felt cool lips curve around mine. I opened my eyes and it all ended. All I saw was blackness.
"Please, don't leave me!" I shouted.
"What wrong?" It was Michael's voice; I sighed and leaned back into my seat.
"Never mind, bad dream" I mumbled, he reached at his side and got out a water bottle.
"I stopped at a motel and bought a bottle of water, were nearly there, what was the dream about?" I cringed; I really didn't want to tell him.
"Nothing really, just blackness" I said taking a sip water, as I sipped it I tasted salty.
"What has 'Please don't leave!' got to do with nothing?" I ignored his question, and looked out the window. My phone vibrated, crap Anna.
"H-hello" I mumbled, shyly.
"Where the hell are you?" I Anna said all teary like.
"I needed to leave, my head was too full, don't worry I'm just going back to Billys" I mumbled with my hands curled up into fists.
"How the hell is I not meant to worry, who are you with? Have you got transport?" She asked, I heard crying in the back round, and then a loud shrill the more tears.
"I'm with a friend, she was passing by and she called me" I said looking at Michael biting my lip.
"Which friend?" She asked not believing my story.
"Hailey" I mumbled blushing. I wish I was still asleep.
"Mom, I've got to go batteries running out, I'm really sorry, and tell Iris sorry to please. I love you" I shut the phone and buried my head in my hands.
"She's going to be in a mood with me now great and now I'm probably grounded for the rest of my life" The car stopped Michael put his arm around me, he kissed my forehead.
"It's going to be okay" He said, rubbing my arms.
"You go in side I need to call Hailey!" I nodded and grabbed my bags. My phone rang again I just left it and walked in. Billy wasn't home yet, I went straight up stairs, and brushed my teeth and got changed into some more comfortable clothes. I wanted that dream to be real so badly, I wanted that same dream again and again.
