What happens to you when the one you once loved turns out to be evil? And you've just moved on and you live with a house full of vampires?

Under-going the editing it desperately needs.

What a year, I thought as I arrived home to an empty mansion. Phantom (my brother) was out with Maddelena (my sister in-law) and Demitri (my brother in-law) on their weekly hunting trip. I am Magma Flame, so named because of my temper. I live in Ravenwing, Ireland but I was not born here and I live with 3 vampires. Yes vampires. Oh and I have special powers e.g. speed, the elements, telekinesis, sensing emotions, force field and others. I also have a telepathic bond with my twin Phantom, but we can block our minds from each other so we do have some privacy.

 To everyone else we are just normal people going about our daily lives; well except for the fact our daily lives include chasing vampires and werewolves and whatever else we have to. We are all old enough to live by ourselves with no parental guidance. As protectors (people who hunt those hunting humans) we have to keep to ourselves and not draw attention to ourselves. On the outside I look like any other girl: raven black hair, violet eyes, ivory skin that might be a touch to pale. As for Phantom, we look very similar only his eyes are icy-blue, same goes for Maddelena and Demitri. Oh and we’re rich, I mean we live in a mansion so I think you got that part anyway I just thought I tell you just in case you asked though money can’t buy you happiness it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery, anyway on with the story.

 “Look who’s back” exclaimed Phantom.

“Love you to brother” I replied sarcastically.

“Here we go again” said Demitri in exasperation. “I’m not starting anything” I said innocently. Phantom sighed and flopped onto one of the couches, he motioned for me to join him. When I was seated he began talking. “Magma we have news and bad news, which do you want to here first”. “I’ll go with news then bad news”. “A new family has moved in”. So I thought. “A new vamp family” he said reading my thoughts. WHAT I yelled through our mind connection. NO NO NO NO. I said to myself over and over, now we risk being discovered. Just chill Mags said Phantom their like us they don’t feed on humans. Now for the bad news he whispered in my mind. Josh is back and he is coming for you.

Fantastic. Just great. The only guy I just so happened to love was evil incarnate and he wants me to be his (shudder). Okay here is the low-down on Josh, he has tanned skin, black hair, storm-grey eyes and he is evil I say EVIL and if you don’t understand you obviously don’t have the brain capacity to cope. He is very likely the devil’s son. I first met him while I was still in school (2 years ago now). We met at my afterschool job (which I still have today) of waitressing. He was nice, charming and totally fun. Soon we started to hang out, after my job and in my breaks. Then when we fell for each other we fell hard and that’s what it was falling. I already knew he was a vampire, I mean I live with some. But that didn’t change anything in my eyes and when he wanted to turn me I probably would have let him if my brother hadn’t stepped in and reminded me of my promise to my parents. 19 no less is the age for turning in our family, so that way we are old enough to look after ourselves through the centuries. That’s when Josh snapped, he didn’t want to wait that long and tried to turn me by force and killed my best friend in the process. That’s when he fled. I expected him to not come back, I was wrong. Now he’s not just my problem but my families as well.

“At least things can’t get worse” Phantom said trying to reassure me, he failed.

“If you think things can’t get worse its only because you lack sufficient imagination” I yelled and stormed off to my room.

Surrounded by the familiar walls of my room, I felt much better. So what if Josh is back, I’m being turned at the next full moon anyway, he can’t hurt me.

Next day I was back at work, waitressing for the diamante café.  I was working at the counter; I was bored so I started drawing aimlessly on my notepad. Then a voice said “Table for 3 please”. It was hypnonitsing and as sweet as melting caramel.

Great Americans I thought as I showed them to the table. Then I reminded my self that taking my anger out on randoms was not a good idea, then as I handed the menus out I thought hey why don’t I go to the cemetery later and let my powers go awry instead. It was then that I looked up and dang were they pretty especially the raven-haired, green eyed boy. The others were quite fine themselves but he was gorgeous, he must have been the one who spoke before. They had to the new family, the family of vamps. Even when work was over I was still thinking about him.

  Next day Josh was waiting for me. He strolled carelessly into the café and out again when my shift was over. Then he approached me, lit up a cigarette and said

“Hey Mags long time no see” I replied with “you know if god intended men to smoke, he would have set them on fire”. “Always the charmer” he chuckled. “So I guess I’ll see you around” and always witty me said “Only in hell Josh, only in hell”.

I had decided to walk to work that day and on the way home, it started to rain. But before I could get completely saturated, a car stopped next to me and someone poked their head out the window. It was the guy from the café yesterday. He asked if a wanted a ride and I said yes, of course. I gave him directions to my house and for a while we sat in silence until he said “My names Hunter. What’s yours?” “Magma” I replied. Then he asked how old I was and about my family, so I told him leaving out the parts about vampires and protectors. Then I blurted without thinking “You’re a vampire aren’t you”. As I was mentally scolding myself he said “how did you know” and some how I told him my life’s story and he told me his. Then we just stared at each other, until it broke into my conciseness that the car had stopped moving and we were out the front of my house. As I moved to exit the car, he gently tapped my and as I turned around my lips caught his and for what seemed forever we stayed like that until I broke our connection and stumbled my way out of the car, to surprised to have proper balance.

  Next morning I still didn’t believe it was true. But it was and the fact that he came to the café just to see me, proved that point. That’s when Josh came in, walked up to me and said “Hey Mags, I told you I’d see you around” as I said back “Drop-dead air head”. “So young yet so cruel” he said passionately. “Get over your self Josh” and all the while Hunter just stood there and watched until Josh decided to notice him “Who are you” Josh snarled. “I’m with her” Hunter said. Great, this is just going great. “So you’ve moved on have you Mags”. “Yes, not that’s its any of your business”. “So what’s the date for your turning” said Josh. Oh great. “Next full moon”. “You know if you want it sooner, I could turn you”. “Bog off, I don’t like you”. “So who do you like?” asked Josh obviously curious. “I don’t know” I told him just as Hunter said “She’s with me”. Yay he likes me. “So this is who you chose over me” he said sounding hurt. Well he can burn in hell for I care. “Yes maybe”. Josh then stormed off. “That went well” said Hunter. I raised an eyebrow at him and said “So I’m with you am I”. “Only if you want to be” he said quietly. “Why wouldn’t I” I said as I leaned forward and kissed him.

Next day there was a note pinned to the front door it read “If I can’t have you no-one will especially not your pretty boy” I showed it to Phantom and the rest of my family. I chose not to go to work that day and discussed instead if we should turn me today and everyone including Hunter voted yes.

By the next morning I was a vampire like the rest of my family and had already fed for the first time. Hunter came over in the morning; he apologized for getting me into this. I told him it wasn’t his fault. We then discussed what to do about Josh and right on cue Josh walking into the room and said “Mags I’m here to take you with me where you belong”. “I do not belong to you; I’m not yours now and never will be”. Josh was getting really worked up. He then yelled “So you chose him over me”. “Yes, I love him”. “You only think you love him, but I was here first and you belong to me” he snarled. “I will never be yours again no matter how many centuries go by, now go away and fall down some stairs or something” I retorted icily . “You will change your mind, you will be mine”. “Josh everyone is entitled to be stupid but you abuse that privilege, oh and by the way do you suffer from insanity”. “I don’t suffer from insanity I enjoy every minute of it” he replied.

And with that last comment I lunged at him, knocking him to the ground. We wrestled each other, trying to gain some ground on the other opponent. Suddenly someone lobbed a stake at me; I quickly snatched it up and plunged it into his heart. He was soon reduced to ash. As Josh’s ashes were swept away on the wind, we celebrated Josh’s life (the one he led before it all went wrong) and my family and I celebrated me and Hunter’s union. And as we continued to celebrate all through the night I thought to myself eternity begins tonight.

Wicked!!! I always like a bit of vampire wrestling now and again!!! My fav line would have to be...“Josh everyone is entitled to be stupid but you abuse that privilege..." That was just gold!!!

Oh, for future reference, it makes it easier to read if you start a new line everytime a new person talks, ^_^
