“Whew! Almost had me there.” He said.

“Damn it, I want to…” I trailed off, putting my shirt back on.
“Have sex with a vampire.” He finished.

“No, have sex with my boyfriend.” I corrected.

“We’ve talked about this time and time again. I’ve told you my answer…I can’t.” He turned around facing me, his blue eyes were smoldering.

The sex debate had been a topic of heated discussion between us lately. It wasn’t as if I wasn't trying to be more understanding in order to respect Christian’s wishes, but it was hard for me because I truly loved him and wanted to take our relationship to the next level. I didn’t say a word as I got up from the bed, and walked out the door. My frustration spilled out over me, I went into the kitchen focusing my attention on tonight’s dinner. Cooking always relaxed me when I was stressed out or in this case, sexually frustrated. Halfway through cooking Christian came down into the kitchen, taking his usual seat at the kitchen table. I continued cooking avoiding any eye contact with him.

“Can we talk about this?” He pleaded. 

“There’s nothing to talk about. I want to respect your wishes but I can’t be a virgin forever. I want you, only you and its irritating to me that I can’t have you in that way. Of course I want my first time to be special but most of all I want it to be with someone I love. And I love you.”

“And I love you more than I could ever have imagined. I want you in that way, I wish I had a time machine to be human again and be available to you in the way you want. But I can’t. You have to accept this because one day Madison I won’t be able to control myself. If I lost control and hurt you I would go crazy. Please don’t make this harder for me.” Christian begged me. 

“We are the most unorthodox couple, most guys are begging their girlfriends to have sex with them not the other way around. I’m sorry but one day we are going to have to take it to the next level. I mean how are we supposed to have a family?” I asked.

“Madison…we can’t have children.”

“Yes I know not now of course but in the future and at the rate-”

“No, vampires can’t reproduce at all. You wouldn’t be able to get pregnant by me.” Christian clarified.

“Fine, so I can't get pregnant by you, but that doesn't mean one day we won't have children. Let's drop this subject.” I told him. 

"Fine. I should probably get going right now anyway all the excitement made me thirsty. I’ll be back later on tonight okay?” 

“Okay have fun hunting. Do you think one day I could come along?” I asked him, curious. 

He frowned, disgustedly. “Trust me, you don't want to see that side of me.” I sighed defeated. 
“I’ll see you later tonight.” I said dejected. He kissed me quickly on the forehead then in a blink of an eye disappeared. I resumed cooking dinner, eating alone at the dinner table when my mother walked in. 

“What are you doing home early?” I asked her, surprised.

“Well hello to you too. I left work early today, I wanted to take you and Christian out to dinner tonight with me and James.” My mother said.

“Oh he had to go back home, but you go mom have fun with James tonight.” I told her.

“Oh, are you sure? I haven’t been home much to spend time with you.” 

“It’s totally fine mom, have fun with James. I’ll be going to bed early anyway tonight. I’m really tired.” I replied. Truth be told, I enjoyed having the house by myself. 

“Okay, I’ll be back later on tonight. I’m going to get ready now.” My mother said, leaving the kitchen.

An hour after I finished eating and showering my cell phone rang. I clicked the mute button on my television then snatched my phone from my bed stand. 
“Hello?” I asked, unsure who it could be, the number was blocked private.

“Madison it’s Katie how are you?”

“Oh hi, I’m fine. How have you been? What’s up?”

“I want you to know how sorry I am that Dean is acting like a complete jerk to you, I don’t feel the same way about the situation. I understand he doesn’t trust Christian but that’s no reason to take it out on you. I had to let you know that because you’re still my best friend, but because I’m Dean’s girlfriend I have to stand by his side you know?” Katie asked me, desperate for me to understand her situation. I did.

“Thanks Kate that means a lot to me. I’m sorry you’re in the middle of this it’s not fair. I want nothing more than Dean to accept Christian but if he can’t then he’s no true fried of mine. Maybe one day we’ll all get back to normal but I doubt it. Did you hear about me and Jocelyn’s argument?” 

“Yeah, she told me everything, she crossed the line on that one first. But Lillian warned me about Jocelyn, obviously she’s jealous of you, but I would never have thought she’d let her jealousy over a guy come between a friendship. After she told me, I told her off. She’s pissed off at me too, that’s what Angelica told me at least.” 

“Do you know what everyone else thinks about the feuds? No one at the table bothers to talk to me. Even Lillian is silent, it’s odd not having the same type of friendship we all used to have.”

“Justin, Jensen, Lilly, Angelica and I are on your side. Of course Julian is on Dean’s side but he can’t stand Jocelyn anymore. We all think you’re being treated unfairly. I think now we all need some space from each other. If you think about it, this is all of ours first real relationships. Even though Julian and Angelica have been dating forever it seems, I notice they’ve been off in their own world. Justin has been talking to this sophomore girl named Olivia Barton. Lillian and Jensen are spending all their time together. I’ve been with Dean and Jocelyn has already set her sights on a senior boy from the swim team named Travis Murray. Even if this whole stupid fight thing didn’t happen we all would’ve drifted apart at least for a little while. Trust me, things will go back to normal as soon as all the love trances fade. Focus on your boyfriend, we’ll always be here for you.” Katie told me, her words calmed me I realized Katie was right.

“Thanks Kate I appreciate you talking to me, what you said makes a lot of sense. I hope you’re right about everything falling back into place though because I miss you guys all the time but I do need to focus on me and Christian right now. But we should at least get together sometime okay?” 

“Yes! A girls night out away from the boys!” Kate shrilled excitedly. “Just let me know the time and place okay? I got to go now, love you Madison talk to you later!” Kate hung up the phone. 
I returned to watching television, when the show was interrupted by breaking news. 
“In late breaking news tonight there has been another tragedy in Maple Falls, a young couple’s bodies were found. The victim’s identities are being with held by the sheriff’s department. All that is known is that the couple are not from Maple Falls due to to out of state license plates on the couple’s car. The couple were hiking in a remote area of the Forbidden Forest that is still very wild.. Police believe the attack has been at the hands of a wild animal that also has been responsible for other deaths in Maple Falls, Oakland and Beacon Hills. Little is known about this animal, there has been numerous manhunts for this animal, believed to be a savage grizzly bear, but to no avail. The Forbidden Forest will remained closed down following this tragedy. There will be an increase in patrols around the area. Police are advising the public to stay away from the Forest, to remain indoors late at night, and if they happen to spot the bear stay far away from it and report it to the sheriff’s department immediately. Let’s hope this bear is caught and killed before it can commit any more tragedies, I’m Erica Holland reporting from-” 

I clicked the television off, terrified and sickened. I prayed for the couple’s family, this creature had to be killed soon because if it wasn’t, the killing spree wouldn’t only be confined to the forest. If people stopped going to the forest then it would be only a matter of time before the animal wandered the streets.
