Chapter 9

I'd finally gotten clean again and was re-dressed in the outfit Alex had picked out for me earlier. I had some strength in my legs and we went out the bedroom and back to the party downstairs. I saw that when we got downstairs everyone was outside. Hopefully they've been out there for a while. I felt myself blushing and Alex giving my waist a reassuring squeeze. I put my arm around his waist and we walked outside to a table with Kashmina, Star, Carl, and Joey outside. I sat in a chair and they all stared at me with happy expressions.

"What?," I asked looking at them.

"Nobody else might've not heard, but we're not ordinary people. You can speak again!," Joey cheered.

I looked at Alex and then looked back at everyone. I shook my head because they were confused. I smirked and Alex sat down beside me.

"I can't talk. I can only say one word," the thoughts in my head roamed.

"Well it's a start," Kashmina smiled.

"So she can't talk?," Carl asked.

"Not really," Kashmina said.

I looked at them with sorry-ness in my eyes, but they seemed all fine. Or maybe they were just using a mirage on their faces to hide their saddness. I ate some food and the party was actually quite fun after... well I'm not one to repeat myself. I waved goodbye to everyone and closed the door once everyone left. I was taken upstairs and since Alex had changed the sheets and blanket put me down. I heard the sound of crying, but Alex wouldn't help me up. Instead he left the room and closed the door. I heard it lock from the outside. He did not just lock me in this bedroom! I pushed myself up off the bed, but fell. I made a sort of groaning noise and was able to crawl over to the door. I turned the doorknob, but it was locked from the outside to keep whatever in. In this case I'm the thing that's trapped in here until I get let out like some wild animal. I looked out through the lock hole and saw Carl on his knees crying.

"Where is she?!," the voice sounded so familiar.

I looked to the left and saw Ryan, Shane, and Namira all very pissed off. I couldn't gasp because I was so taaken aback. I looked back at Carl and saw Joey dead on the floor. Ryan's left hand was covered in blood and he was holding something in his hand. I scrambled on my hands and knees backwards and bumped into the nightstand. It made a loud wobbly noise and I could hear nothing, but silence. I heard someone approach the door and unlock it. It opened and Shane looked in. He saw me on the floor and smiled.

"Ryan look. Alex's got himself a new slut," Shane said.

Ryan walked over and looked at me. By the way I was looking I proably looked like I was about to be raped. Ryan stared me down then his glare shot back to Alex. He looked at Namira then nodded. I was useless and Namira attacked Kashmina.

"No!," Star screamed.

Star stepped in the way and Namira drove a stake through her heart. I felt tears swell in my eyes and leak. Shane smiled as Star wrapped her hands around the stake and looked at me. She fell on her side and I only saw blur before Namira had grown crazy-long black dirty nails and slashed them through Carl's neck. I jumped and looked up at Shane.

"Look at what you got yourself into," he said to me.

Oh, I wanted to speak so bad and just fuck their lives up. I felt anger again and it ws just right their on the brink of toppling over. I looked at Shane with anger and screamed.

"Get.. t-the f-fuck outta h-here!," I screamed shocked that I was able to speak again.

"Let's go she's not here," Ryan said and they all left.

They all left leaving me petrified and frozen. I crawled back over to the door and Alex had kneeled between Carl and Star's bodies. I crawled over to Carl and it didn't look like his head was even attached to his neck anymore. I closed his and Joey's eyes so that they could sleep peacefully. I always want to make myself think that. I crawled over to Alex and he pulled me to him in a hug as I sobbed into his chest. It was terrifying to know that I survive death, but hundred year old vampires could die easily. I looked at Kashmina and she wasn't showing any emotion. Her face andd eyes were a complete blank and she was looking at Star. I reached for her hand, but she grabbed it and stared at me. She shook her head at me and my wrist began to hurt. I think she was breaking my wrist.

"K-Krashmina!," I screamed in pain.

She pushed my hand away and got up. She walked out the house and left me and Alex in the house. I looked at Star and closed her eyes. I pulled the stake out of her chest and set it on the floor. Her face was paler than usual and I was just death in a human body. I felt Alex help me stand up and we walked back to our bedroom. I stopped before we got in the room blocking with my body.

"Never, ever, lock me in a room okay?," I put my hand under his chin.

"Yeah," he looked at me.

"And why did Ryan say I wasn't here when I am?," I asked.

"Go look in the mirror," he said.

I walked to the bathroom and wiped some fog offthe mirror and looked at myself. I gaspedbecause the person in themirror,it wasn't me in the mirror. My eyes had changed to swirls of blue purple and my hair wasn't black. How could I not notice? My hair had changed to a complete light brown. I looked at my face and rubbed my eyes. I still looked like the reflection in the mirror. I turned around and saw Alex had unbuttoned his shirt. I held my hand out and pulled him into the bathroom. I closed the door and hugged him and he quietly cried in my shoulder.

"I don't think this would be a good time to say anything," I whispered in his ear.

"No, what's wrong? Tell me," he said looking at me.

"I... I think I'm-m h-human," I looked at his tear-stained face.

He didn't say anything. All he did was search my eyes and there was nothing that I could read through them. I searched for any emotion until he looked down at the floor then back up to my eyes.

"I still love you," he wrapped his arms around my waist.

"I still love you too," I said and leaned my head against him.

We walked out the bathroom and we were heading to the bedroom when I saw people here cleaning up the mess. They'd picked up Star, Carl, and Joey's bodies and placed them in body bags. I don't think they're police because then they'd be taking pictures of the scene.

"Who are they?," I asked Alex.

"They're the cleaners for our kind," he said, "they clean up any messes."

"So where will they take them?," I asked looking at them clean the floor of al blood.

"Our bodies never age so we can't be buried. They're going to be cremated." he informed me.

My eyes went wide and I couldn't imagine that to my family. I couldn't take it and I passed out. I fell on my side with half open eyes and Alex kneeled beside me and looked a little scared. He picked me up and brought me back to our bedroom my waist long hair moving like a watterfall as I was carried then placed on the bed. He took my clothes off and covered me with a blanket so I was only in my bra and panties.


When I woke up there was no one in the room. I looked at the digital clock and it read 10:47. I sat up and looked around, but there was nothing on the floor, but the dresser with clothes for me was open. I walked over to the dresser and saw a note and an outfit in the drawer. The note was telling me that Alex had gone hunting and would be back around noon. It alson said that we'd be leaving the United States later. I looked at the outfit and it was a pink v-neck, black jeggings, and a white mini skirt. I put the clothes on and brushed out my hair. I was going to have to get used to being a brunette again. Yeah I was originally a brunette, I just didn't like it at the time. I put on the black ballet flats I wore yesterday and walked out the room. Nothing was here. I mean the stuff for the house was, but no one was here. I felt alone in this world because all of my family was dead and most of the friends I'd made.

The only human friends that were living were the ones back in Costa Rica. I'd loved my life in Costa Rica with most of my other parts of family there too. But if I go back then they'll wonder what happened to me. Life was so fucking difficult when it came down to this shit. I walked in the kitchen and made me some reeses puff cereal and sat down in the living room. I sat on the couch and watched some t.v. wating for someone to come back. I heard a knock at the door and set my cereal on the coffee table. I went to the door and opened it. What I didn't expect was Shane again who just smiled at me.

"Is anyone home you whore?," he asked me and the depression feeling came back.

"N-No one is home besides me," I answered.

"How about you give me a tour of the house," he suggested walking into the house.

"I really shouldn't because Alex should be back soon," I lied knowing he wouldn

't be back for about anhour.

"Oh, stop the damn act already Ame," he growled, "you should be fucking dead!"

"I've got more lives than a cat," I mocked.

"Well, it seems I should finish the deed Ryan left undone," he walked toward me and I bumped into things on the way.

"You will not touch me!," I said as he raised his hand to my face.

I smacked his hand away, but grabbed his arm. I twisted it behind his back and wrapped my arm around his neck and used mystrength and broke his neck. He wasn't able to say anything and fell on the floor. I saw Alex was walking up to the house and saw the door open with me there. I looked at him and saw he was looking at Shane's body. I was a little afraid of what he was going to say. Would something that I love leave me for dead in an unknown place because things for him were becoming all messed up?
