There I began my questions, and they began theirs. When everything was answered, I looked about as if I knew that someone was watching, but having no clue where. Molly snapped me back into focus and we all started to walk back to my house. When we got there, my parents must have been in bed, because they were in their pjs when they opened the door. They asked me about camp, and I was able to come up with good, quick lies. I was also backed up by Sophia and Molly, who said they visited me. Anyway, we all ate dinner, and I was able to tell them on how I hate for school to start up in a couple of week. I’ll have to face my slight embarrassment when I see Damon again.
The rest of summer was more of a drag, nothing went on, and nothing with any importance happened. The three of us hanged around the forest a lot, and went to the mall in the city once, and talked, and did whatever. Like gossip, complain, and just letting our life roll out of our mouth for everyone else to see. I knew school was going to start really soon, I tried not to think about it, but I just couldn’t help it. I wish I had bothered to look at the calendar.
Anyway, summer is almost over, and I’m glad that school is starting, because then I would have something to do, instead of talking my days away, and sitting up in the branches, thinking of what I could do for fun. The bad thing about it, is that I’ll be seeing him again, and that means, facing a slight, stupid fear. I’ll be seeing everybody I know though, because it is school, and all.
Well, today I decided that I want to try to be like a normal kid again, and watch TV. So I watched some spy shows, like James Bond, and detective shows like Monk, and I finally watched this really funny one, the Pink Panther, and The Man who Knew Too Little. I read books, good ones, bad ones. Some about history, fiction, science, anything I could get my hands on.
So I spent all day watching TV, and shows, which I can easily understand why normal people like to do it. I’m just not normal, so I really like going outside, and having my own fun exploring the forest beyond. Oh, and just now I looked at the calendar, it turns out school is starting tomorrow, and I didn’t even know it. At least I know, so I won’t turn up at all, you know.
This morning I felt like this was ending the end and beginning to something.. So I got a few new teachers, but a couple of then I had from years before. As far as I can tell, there is none that I particular dislike. I’ve always gotten along with my teachers, so I was always their favorite student. I can’t help it that I a NERD as well as a shape-shifter. But that doesn’t really matter, does it, so let’s get on with it. Damon’s still in my homeroom class and gym, and also history, at the end of the day. Of course I have classes with Sophia and Molly, they’d have too.
One year I didn’t get in any classes as them, so I pleaded (which is very rare of me to do) with my teachers, and staff of the school to switch me, and it did pay off. Not only did I get a schedule change, every year, I have them in a few classes. I have Sophia in gym, and language arts. And Molly has history, homeroom with me. So I’ve always so lucky that there are always there!
As time went on, so did everything else. I was still doing my best to stay above Damon on everything, it’s not at all easy. Even though we both can be considered the supernatural, I didn’t die, so that makes him have some strengths way over mine, but since I never died and I don’t have a weird fear of humans, because I might randomly drink their blood. I have some strengths that no one can overcome. I what you call, one of the best of the best (well not really, but it is fun to think of it that way).
So Halloween came and past, and I dressed up as a vampire showing my Panther teeth as fangs, but only at first. Then I dressed up to become an angle of some sort, making my Golden Eagle wings come out through my back. It’s fun to show myself, to everyone, without having them know it. Thanksgiving also came, and believe me that was a nice feast. We had ham instead of turkey, which was so much better for the animal in me. I ate until I was stuff, even the stuffing that not having meat in it was also very good.
Right now I would say it is the 14 of December, that makes it winter. And I can feel all through my entire body that something very dreadful is going to happen very soon. I have no clue when, I just don’t want to find out. This is the winter that the big battle is going to come. I so scared. School ends today for winter break, and so that means its Friday. I worried that this is going to be way more than to handle. I think that studying the prophecy that was told is going to be helpful at a time like this. It knows I’m going to win, and how, so I just got to figure out what that is, then this evil story will close up like a little princess popup book.
As the days go by, all the trees had already lost their leaves, the snow is about 4in thick, and everybody is bundling up for a cold winter. I dress warmly, but not even as close to what everyone else is doing. My animal blubber, and fur, and skin and things like that will keep me plenty warm. I should be careful, that’s all! There has to be some connection with that prophecy and to everything else.
Parents will be with, to love and to care, only to make way for thy destiny in thy thin winter air. Another will help, and a lover he is, but don’t be fooled he’s dangerously different from the rest of the kids. Together you are strong and away you are week, and against each other is no match to meet. Fight against evil from now until dawn and allow others to live on. The main things that I really caught got up with, was that my destiny is in the winter, and someone else is supposed to help me, but isn’t normal, meaning he’s dangerous like me. This stuff is just getting my head into knots, and my mine is in complete ciaos. I’m supposed to know when evil comes by the weather, and I would think it would be this one. Not only do I not know what I’m battling against, I don’t know who’s going to help me, and how they’re going to be any good.
The only other super natural people, or people who might understand, besides Damon, Sophia, and Molly.
As the world spins, time goes on, and as time goes on, I have less time to figure things out. I know that people say that not everything can be figured out, but most things can, and they all are for the good of something, right. I’m just afraid of things to come!
I’m feeling more and more nervous, as the days goes by. I can tell that something is going to happen and it’s killing me that I’m the one to stop it with someone I don’t. I hope Sapphira can help me, but lately the pretty blue glow has gotten pale and weak looking. Today I told Sophia and Molly what I was feeling about evil coming now and such. They called later that day giving out names of mythical creatures that I could battle. Magicians, Vampires, Unicorns, Mermaids (though they live in the ocean), Dragons, Witches, a Kraken ( giant squid that sinks boats, but also they live in the ocean), Fairies, Ogres, and Giants. They also listed: Cyclopes, Griffins, Bigfoot, and the Lockness Monster (but it only lives in a lake somewhere far away), Ghosts, Fawns, Censurers, Demigods, tree monsters (from movies), evil villians (from movies), zombies, and others I can’t remember.
“Come on you guys, do you really think that I’ll be battling those, most likely not.”
“Yah, but still, at least you have some ideas on what it could be.” Sophia answered loudly in the phone.
“I think we should give this so called monster, or evil thing a name, like It, or something.” Molly said on the other line calmly.
“I guess you’re right, we’ll call him, It.” Sophia finalized. The talk was short, but my brain kept running over the names of creatures that they have given me. I could think on how all of those could be evil, but in most stories, they aren’t .
School the next day was a mess, it was the last day before break and the teachers were either handing out homework, or letting the students watch movies, in all my classes I watched a movie, except two, and I finished the homework in the movie classes.
As I was hurrying out the door to go home and sit on my bed and think some more, I was dodging the crowd left and right, but for some random reason, I missed a person, and bumped straight into the student. I looked up to see who it was, to mumble a sorry as I brush past. But with my brain not being very focused, I just stood there. When I realized that I had actually stop, it may have been a few seconds later. I looked up to see who it was. I was expecting to see some football player. I had bumped into him hard enough to feel how tall, and strong that they were. I was not expecting to see Damon just staring at me, into my eyes.
He must have been dodging people left and right like me in the same, inhumanly speed that we both rammed into each other. Ironic uh! As we were saying sorry to each other, we actually realized who it was, and began, to talk. I wanted to get home as fast I could to go over this more, and I almost started to complain pouring some of my troubles on him before I could clamp my mouth shut. All of the embarrassment flooded in, making me hurry away.
After I looked over all my homework to make sure I did them all, then I sat again on my bed trying to think, trying to understand everything that is happening. I could make no sense of it, my brain was just wrestling the fact that this is one thing that I don’t know about, just like when I knew Damon was different. I would think and wreck my brain trying to put everything together, and figure things out. I hate it when the world and all of its wonders outsmarts me, but then again, it outsmarts everyone. And no one can every know everything or figure out everything.
As I was running through all of what I know, I heard a rat-a-tap-tap, on my window, but thinking it was the tree, I just ignored it. But there it came again, and again, until I couldn’t take it anymore, and my whole mind was on the stupid tree banging in my window. I stalked over and through open the window wide, only to see lounging in the tree, Damon. To both a slight horror and surprise, I tried to shut the dang window as fast as my muscles could work, only it wasn’t quite fast enough. His arm was pushing it open, even though we were both super natural creatures, the dead I must tell you has a lot more strength than the living. I was using all of my strength, but I’ve got to tell you, I’m not even close to the strongest thing out there. It was no use at all, Damon pushed open the window and climbed in. I wish that he was never invited into my house first place, but when you’re on the brink of death as I had felt that infamous night, you’ll do practically anything.
