"Don't.....touch....me!" Shane repeated in a low growl. Shane ripped part of the table cloth off and grabbed my bleeding hand. His grip was hard and kind of painful. He looked at the blood, inhaled, and exhaled slowly. A sudden spurt of blood came out and he inhaled very sharply. Matt was about to pull Shane away but Shane repeated what he said before. His face was twisted. He wrapped my hand tightly with the strip of cloth. He applied pressure on the wound and I winced, but at least it made it stop bleeding. He then let go and stalked off silently upstairs. The others just stared surprised and amazed at the incident.
"Did what just happened really happen?" Adrian asked in disbelief.
"Yup." Blake replied in the same voice.
"Oh he's good." Matt breathed.
"Oh ya." Adrian replied.
Smooth Shane! You were great! Perfect! That was a wonderful greeting! I thought sarcastically. Oh ya here I'll almost suck all your blood out for you! Brilliant! I silently cursed myself.
Shane stayed in his room for the rest of the day. Alex was fine her cut wasn't very deep. I was sitting in my room on my bed thinking when I heard a soft knock on my door. "Come in." I said and the door opened. Alex came in. I motioned for her to sit beside me and she did.
"Is Shane gonna be okay?"
"I don't really know. He won't talk to me." I sighed.
"Its all because of me isn't it?"
"Not really. He's just learning to control himself thats all."
"I thought he already had."
"Not to how good you smell to him."
"Alex you smell different.....better than anyone else to him. He's never experienced something like this before."
"Really?" I nodded. She stared at the wall. It was getting dark outside. "Well I guess I better let you sleep then." She said getting up. She opened the door and walked out but not before giving me a sad kind of smile. I turned off the light and crawled into bed.
I walked back to my room slowly, thinking. I stopped halfway there. If I went to see him would he talk to me?
"The answer is no." A voice said from behind me. I jumped and the person chuckled. Wait I know that laugh. I turned around, sure enough it was Adrian.
"Don't do that!" I said punching him and he just laughed again."What do you mean the answer is no?"
"What you were thinking."
"You can read minds?!"
"Well then theres absolutely no way that I can keep anything from you?"
"Pretty much." He said nodding.
"So he wouldn't talk to me?"
"Probably not. Don't worry he'll come around."
"Yup. Now a certain mortal needs to get some sleep."
"I don't feel like it."
"Do I have to carry you?"
"......Maybe," he started coming towards me "no no i was just kiddig!" I said frantically. He smiled mischeviously (sp?) but stopped. I walked down the hall to my room and he watched me go.
At about 1:00 A.M. I crept silently into Alex's room. She was curled up in her bed asleep. I watched her silently then inhaled her scent. It was getting easier to handle. She looked so peaceful as she slept. Her gorgeous black hair was spread all over the pillow. I wanted to touch her soft face but restrained myself. Suddenly she mumbled something. I normally would have understood her but she caught me off guard. "Shane......" she mumbled again. Did she just say my name? My hearing isn't flawed that is what she said. "Shane....." she said rolling over. I inhaled her scent once more then left her room. I went to the nearest window and opened it. Not caring that this was the second floor I jumped out. I sprung forward like you would in a long distance dive. I did a flip and landed perfectly on my feet. I then ran into the woods.
