I stared up at the buildings surrounding me. So this was the city of lights huh? On normal circumstances i guess i would've been happy, but what was there to rejoice about now? I was alone which in itself kinda sucked, and i was here on a death mission. Where was the fun of that? okay yes maybe bloodshed did sound a little fun but still!
I shuffled along with the crowds not exactly sure where anyone was going, but just keeping my head down and moving along. My looks had already singled me out as a foreigner,but then even back home in the states i'd always stood out. Caramel colored skin and shoulder length coffee colored hair were just not everyday colors i assumed. And the new eyes didn't help much either, a green as pure as a jade jemstone. Gazing at my reflection i no longer recognized myself. I'd gone from the estranged shy girl to the sexy predator in on time at all, and i hated it.
No, unfortunately i had survived the transformation, but at a great price. the familiar beat of my heart had ceased replaced with an empty hallowness that i truly despised, and while my senses had sharpened to an unfathomable level, it just wasn't the same. I sighed inwardly, this is the price you pay for falling in love with a parasite i suppose.
And speaking of parasites, it brought me back down to earth. I needed to focus, this wasn't a trip for fun, i needed to find Caleb's family. Since i couldn't carry out my revenge on him in the after life i consoled myself with the idea of giving his relatives hell in this life. i was at an unbelievable disadvantage. I'd only just gotten this body and who knew what other abilities, these vamps had to pretty old which meant they were a helluva lot more expiernced then a five foot one seventeen year old with a stake. You think so too? Then we're on the same page here.
I was so absorbed in my own sadistic little world that imissed the stoplight, and the honking, and the car that was swerving right at m---
"Have you lost your freaking mind?"
I glanced up to see a guy around my age---who would've caused male models everywhere to eat their hearts out! I mean he was just....wow...just like....freaking...wow... he was on top of me,and he ws freaking heavy.
"You almost got hit by a car? Can you talk? Are you mentally unstable or something?"
I wish he would just shut up and let me oogle. But no his stupid voice is ruining my fantsies...
"Quit yelling!I heard you the first time!" I growled.
"That's obviously all you heard." He countered. His eyes were slate gray almost completly concealed by his brown hair. I froze for a second. Caleb had had brown hair. But Caleb is dead now i reminded myself, so that was irrelevant.
"You're welcome by the way." He sneered which contorted his godly face in an ugly way.
I blinked "For what exactly?"
He didn't have an accent, maybe he was a foreigner like me maybe he was even american.
'For saving you dumb a**."
Oh he was so definately american.
"Yeah thanks for that but i would've been fine." which technically wasn't a lie. "But i didn't---"
"need me to push you out of the way of that car?" He interrupted. "Yes you did."
I glared at him hard. Gorgeous or not he ws starting to piss me off.
"Look like a total tourist? Yes you do."
5.0 seconds until fist makes a connection with pretty face.
"But you've probably never left the states before right? That's so typical."
He rolled his eyes at my furious looks. " Look kid how about i take you where you need to go. I'll buy you a ticket and you can hop on a train and meet your parents or whatever."
I had just finished gauging the distance between us and how much damage i would potentially inflict when i heard the words 'pay', 'for', and 'your'. so i unclenched my fists and met his eyes.
"You'll take me where i need to go?' I asked guardly.
He shrugged. " Yup."
"And you'll pay?" The gears were turning in my mind. Having him pay would save me some trouble, and well...he did offer...
I should've felt bad about conning this poor idiot out of money...but i didn't!
"I'm going to Rome." I stated.
He arched an eyebrow. " Aren't you a little young to be going there by yourslef?"
"I'm seventeen you a**."
His mouth formed a little 'o' of surprise. Idiot.
I turned and started walking off down the street, my senses leading me toward the station.
"I'm Calixandra." I said as he fell into stride beside me.
"Dameon." He replied with a chuckle.
"it's a pleasure to con you."
"Most people would say meet."
"Good thing i'm not most people."
Far from it. I was getting closer to my goal. Although there weren't any leeches in Paris, i knew they would be in Rome somewhere, i'd find them, weed them out, and one by one, i would destroy them.
