I woke up in the middle of the night. I sat up carefully so I wouldn't knock Damon out the tree. Damon sat up rubbing his eyes.
"You okay Anna?," Damon asked.
"Yeah I gotta go back to the house though," I said jumping out the tree.
Damon climbed down and walked me back to the house. When I opened the door it was dark. I went in and my mom was sleep on the couch. I went upstairs and Krystal was in her room sleep with her mom lying beside her. I went into the guest room and lied down on the bed. Damon walked in and lied on the bed with me. I turned so I was facing Damon and he brushed my hair out my face.
"Get some sleep," he said.
He gently kissed my lips and I closed my eyes. It didn't take very long for me to fall back asleep. I feel asleep soon enough, but before I fell asleep Damon climbed over me and wrapped an arm around me. I snuggled to him and sighed in contempt.
When I woke up I sat up and Damon was still asleep. I climbed out the bed and walked downstairs. Everyone was already awake and at the table.
"Hi," I said.
"Is your friend awake?," Krystal teased.
"No," I leaned on the door frame.
"Anna we're leaving as soon as we find a place to go," my mother said.
"How about my parents' adjoining guest house?," Damon walked in.
"No," my mom quickly responded.
"Mom come on," I begged.
"Give me one fantasticreason and we'll go," she crossed her arms.
"Because Damon protected me when he let me stay with him before," I said.
She thought for a second and looked at Megan. Megan shrugged and looked at her daughter. I crossed my fingers behind my back and Damon smiled. He walked past me and went to the fridge to get some apple juice. My mother sighed in defeat and nodded. Krystal clapped wth glee and ran upstairs dragging me along. I laughed as she forced me to come. She pulled me out a black mini skirt and a hazel coloured tank top. She handed me a red shirt and smiled. I put the outfit on and took Krystal's brush. I brushed my hair out and put half of it in a hair tie.
Some of it fell as little strands of bangs. I went downstairs and took out my black ballet flats. I slipped them on and turned around. Damon looked at me up and down. I put my finger under his chin and smiled.
"Eyes up big boy," I laughed and walked past him.
He laughed and bit his lip. I grabbed a bottle of water and took a gulp. My mom looked at me and her eyes said follow me. I followed my mom to the basement and sat on the stairs next to her.
"Mom what's wrong?," I asked.
"I just don't want you to do anything to rash," she said folding her hands.
"Mom, trust me, nothing is going to happen promise," I gave her a hug.
She hugged me and kissed the top of my head. We walked back upstairs and everyone was standing by the door. I sighed and saw the house looked amazingly old and vacant. I sighed and walked out the door. I really don't want to leave, but I have to again. There wan't enough room in Megan's car because of everything they packed. So I had to get in Damon's car. We drove until we got to Anderson, South Carolina. Everyone was exhausted so we pulled into a motel.
I had fallen asleep on accident so Damon carried me into the motel bridal style. We got two rooms, but they weren't near each other. My mom let me sleepin the room with Damon since I was already asleep. We stayed in the Bleckley Inn on East Church Street. Damon carried me inside bridal style. As soon as he set me on the bed I woke up.
"Go back to sleep," Damon said.
I sat up and went to the bathroom. I rinsed my face off and walked out. I slipped my ballet flats off and looked at my clothes. I didn't want to sleep in this. Damon looked at me and smiled.
"I'll give you a shirt to sleep in," Damon went to his bags and bulled me out a large blue shirt that matched my hair.
I took my clothes off and saw Damon watched my every move. I pulled his shirt over my head and tossed my clothes in the corner. I yawned and sat on the bed. Damon took off his button-up shirt and I bit my lip to see he wasn't wearing a t-shirt. Damon kicked off his sneakers and stretched his arms above his head. I can't believe how muscular he got. He faced me and smiled because I was still biting my lip.
He came up to me and kissed my lips gently. My hand traveled down his chest and over his 6-pack. Damon crawled on top of me making me lie down on the bed. My arms wrapped around him and I pulled him closer. Damon rolled us over so I was on top. I had seen a few erotic movies, so I straddled Damon. The hair tie had fallen out and my hair fell everywhere.
I stopped because this was going too far. I pulled away from Damon and lied beside him. Damon got back on top of me and began kissing me again. I pushed him off me and sat up.
"What's wrong?," he asked kissing my neck.
"No Damon, I'm only 15," I pushed him away.
"I'm only 17," he kissed my cheek.
"Damon... just... no," I said.
"Okay," Damon kissed me gently one last time.
I yawned and moved my hair out my face. I sighed and Damon crawled under the blanket. I laughed and lied beside him. Damon pulled the blacket over me and I turned the lamp out. I snuggled up to Damon and he put an arm around me. I knew I went too far tonight. I closed my eyes and felt really cold.
"Damon it's freezing in here," I stuttered.
"No wonder you're cold the air is on," Damon went to the thermostat and turned up the heat.
Damon climbed back in bed and hugged me close to his chest. I sighed and watched the clouds pass across the view of the moon. Soon enough I fell asleep. Peacefully, but still afraid a hunter would find me.
