Why would there be a bandage over my NECK? I mean, I hit my HEAD. Of course, there was a bandage on my head, too. Why would I need one on my neck? There's a knock on the door.
"Rayne? I seriously doubt it takes that long to put on some clothes." I don't respond. "I'm coming in!" He opens the door. I keep looking in the mirror at the bandage. "You okay?" He asks. He comes up behind me and sees me looking at the bandage. His face flushes a little.
"Why is there a bandage on my neck?" I ask him.
"Well...we sort of had to inject medicine in through your neck..."
"So you bit me."
"Well, yea, but it was to put medicine inside of you."
"What was the medicine for?"
"Pain, and to help you wake up."
"Who bit me?"
"...I did." I didn't really think about it much longer. It's already been done. There's nothing I can do now. "But I think you should know something.."
"What?" I ask, curious.
"Your blood tastes different than any other blood I've ever tasted." He says.
"Is that a bad thing?" He shrugs.
"I don't know. I just thought you should know."
"Okay." There was a silent moment between us.
"You're going to my aunt's while I'm at war." He states clearly.
"What? No way." I stand up.
"Yes. It's too dangerous to come with me."
"No, Harver. I may be a girl, but I can fight just as good as you." I say, angry.
"You're going to my aunts! I've made up my mind, Rayne!" He yells, before walking out. His tone kind of scared me.

Later that night...(Harver's POV)
Rayne and I lay in bed, quiet.
"Please let me come, Harver." Rayne whispers. My back is turned to her face.
"No, Rayne. Stop asking." I say, a bit more harshly than I needed to. Why can't she just face the facts?
"Just let me come. Why won't you let me, other than 'it's too dangerous'?" I turn to her, and see a tear in her eye. I sigh out heavily.
"I can't lose you Rayne. The war is-" She stops me. "dangerous. See? I didn't even throw in a 'too' there." I say. She smiles slightly at the dumb joke.
'You've always been bad at jokes." She says, wiping away a few tears that had fallen.
"Oh, so now you're gonna go and make fun of me?" I say, and she laughs a little.
"Just let me come Harver. Please. I'll be okay. I even promise not to get in your way...or even be part of the war."
"I don't know Rayne..." Rayne came closer and our lips collided. The kiss gets deeper, than to my dismay, she pulls away.
"Please, Harver?" She says with a puppy dog face. She knows how to bribe me...
"You gotta swear you'll stay hidden." I say, and she smiles.
"I swear." She says, and kisses me once more before closing her eyes and she falls into a deep sleep.
