I sat at the desk beside Elsie and smiled. We were in history, typically boring, but when you are settled in with a group of vampires you tend to change your idea of boring.
"Where did you lose Nate?" All the vampires were staring at me and giving me that smile that showed they believed my uncomfort was hilarious. I slouched down farther in my seat.
"With Seth." I grumbled. They strolled in together and sat by us looking perfectly at ease. Of course they were fine! They fit in with the rest of the school. Nate sat behind me like he did in first period and tugged on my hair. Seth was telling off some vampire who was about to make a comment to me. Great, now I had to have vampire body guards to protect me from the other vampires.
"Not body guards. Think of us as more your personal entourage." Elsie looked lost.
"What are you talking about!?"
"Nothing that you need to worry your pretty mind with." Nate responded and I listened to Mr. Rigg go on about the Renaissance or something along those lines. I hate this! It's a good thing that I only have two weeks until I can be gone from this school for good! I mentally complained to Nate.
You'll miss it here though. All your friends. You will have to start over. He did make sense, but I didn't want to listen to reason. Being angry was better than sucking up the truth and being rational.
What friends? I have no "friends". In case you have forgotten, I am only here for entertainment purposes. You guys just wanted to see how long you could fool the stupid human. I snapped bitterly. Nate decided it was time to leave me alone. For the rest of the period I sat with my arms crossed and thought hateful things towards my classmates, knowing that they could hear me loud and clear. Finally the bell rang and it was time for lunch. Oh, Dear God!
"Whitney! You are going to the cafeteria where all our friends are and that's final!" Seth yelled at me and shoved me in the direction of the cafeteria. Elsie already left for lunch so Nate and Seth were stuck dealing with me. We were standing in the middle of the hallway and everybody who walked by would slow down and raise their eyebrows at us.
"Why? So I can be the appetizer? Or am I the dessert?" I turned on my heel and walked to the buildings exit, a different direction from the cafeteria.
"How many times do I need to say this! They aren't going to touch you! Stop being a baby and get your ass in there."
"No, Seth! I am not going to eat lunch with a bunch of lying, deceiving vampires! They are not, I repeat, NOT, my friends!"
"Whitney, listen to Seth. Unless you want me to carry you in there over my shoulder and cause a scene I suggest you go now." Nate began to pick me up and I gave up. He put me down and I slapped him across the face. He wouldn't even feel it though. Stupid vampires!
"Jack ass." I cursed under my breath, and glared at him.
"What did you say!?"
"Nothing Nate. Nothing at all because I am a worthless human here for your guys' fun." I marched to the cafeteria doors and swung them open. I stormed through the cafeteria. Everyone was silent as my steps echoed of the walls of the giant room. I bought myself an orange and a muffin. I couldn't take the silence anymore. Have you ever been in a room with hundreds of other people and it was so quiet that it felt like the silence was louder than screaming? Well, that's exactly how it was in the cafeteria.
"What are you all staring at!?" I was in the center of the cafeteria now and I waited impatiently. No one answered. I squeezed my orange until it ripped open and juice coated my hand. An idea popped into my head. I ambled over to where the cheerleader who was making fun of me in second period sat. Her name was Bridget, but bitch was more like it. I smiled at her. She was twirling her bleached blonde hair around a thin, manicured finger and giggling like she was drunk.
"Here's some good old fashion entertainment for ya!" I shoved my ruined oranged down the front of her shirt and walked off with a smirk while she screamed in anger. She was standing up looking furious, and I could have sworn that her fake nose was about to melt off from the bubbling hatred that was coming from her shrieks. Her chest was heaving and she really did look pissed, but what can I say, she deserved it.
"You will so pay!"
"Really now!? What are you gonna do? I'm only here for another week. You better think of something good, because the time is ticking." Elsie was staring at me with her mouth open as was everybody else. Hell was about to freeze over. Well, if I was going to leave, might as well go with a big impression, and what better way to do that than putting a mean girl in her place.
"Enjoy your lunch everybody. I know that Bridget did!" After a couple more seconds of silence laughter shook the cafeteria. Bridget ran off to the bathroom and I was overjoyed.
"Not bad human. I didn't think you would even have the guts to show up here let alone do that." Drayson, a stereo-typical looking football player, said and grinned at me. He was the personification of the All American Boy idea. Blonde hair, sky blue eyes, and of course a football player build.
"Don't push it. You might be next on my list." He laughed and I smiled at him. Vampires- intimidating, but once you prove that you aren't afraid to stand up to them they generally have respect for you. I found Nate and Seth sitting at a table gawking at me.
"What? You two forced me in here, I might as well have fun." I felt power rush through me! I was at lunch with vampires, and I wasn't their main course! Maybe this wouldn't be so bad.
"I think you are having some kind of pshychotic break. I know that this may be a lot to handle, but you are losing your mind." Nate tugged me down beside him.
"Leave me alone about it! Nothing is wrong and I am feeling better than ever!" I slapped my palms down on the table causing a fearful look appear on Seth's face. Nate continued to talk in a calm voice.
"Are your ribs still hurting you?" I nodded my head slowly. They were still aching, but not as bad as they did this morning.
"So, if this is a human school why are there so many vampires?" I asked, trying to change the subject away from me.
"Vampires are all over in the human world. We blend in quite well. Most don't even know they are vampires until they are either told or hit a certain point in puberty causing them to radically change into a vampire." Nate eyed me, but I didn't bother to ask for an explanation, and dug into my blueberry muffin.
