I looked around and saw nothing. I wasn't blind I was empty. I didn't see, I didn,t feel. I was just bones and a muscles, and oragans. Just mechanics.I didn,t see him even though he was right infront of me. Maybe he thought I finally realized how dangerous my life was right now. I felt the weight of his palms on my skin. I could feel the warmth. Comfort refused to come. My heart beat may have slowed down. But I felt no real comfort. Caleb held me then. If he spoke I didn't hear it but I felt breath on my skin.
" Why did you lie?" I asked
He pulled slowly away from me. I felt a coldness on my body. I welcomed it as best I could. I folded my arms and waited for an answer.
" Maybe you thought It would be easier for me ...to watch you kill. Thinking that you were killing monsters. Easier for me, just to go back to being a normal girl. But If you want me to trust you or to do whatever it is you want me to do you have to be honest with me" I explained.
I heard him exhale. I watched him tense up an let go one muscle at a time. I looked into his eyes they were clear transparent as a lake.
" I didn't want to tell you they see your actions as betrayal on the human race"
" I talked to you once and all of a sudden..."
Caleb interrupted " That's on more thing I didn't mention. Vampire relationships are much more deeper intense... We become the " Enamoured". It happens fairly quickly from before first sight. It's hard to explain...It's...
I let him trail off. I was probably catching flies. But suddenly things were coming much more clearer. Relevant. This was why I didn't care that he was a vampire. Why i didn't need to know his life story. Why I just had to be near him.
" This explains a lot but changes nothing right?"
He nodded silently. I almost started to cry then. I blinked back the tears and stared at the ceiling. I let my eyes dry up I hopped they would dry up so much they would burn. Something to compete with the burning longing in my chest.
" I'm...I'm going to go shower" I stammered
" Wait..." He paused " You don't have to go"
" I'm just going to shower" I whispered
" Right. " He said.
