"No! nobody was ever supposed to find out!" I come crashing to my knees and burst into tears as the meaning of the words of this human finally hit me. I look at him with my pained eyes... "You cannot tell anyone... ever." He shakes his head and walks over to me. I somehow feel like I can trust him.... No! You can never trust a human! They are selfish, cruel, despicable creatures! But... maybe, he's different.

Annabel Creasure is different than most people. Everybody believes she's a freak. Everyone but one. Alexander Shade sees something in her that he just can't shake. Will the secrets of Annabel ruin everything, or will it only bring them together?


6. 6.

It's been a week since the incedent. When I got home it was weird, well around everyone except Alex and my father. I couldn't tell anyone that I had saved Alex's life, even if I did, I would have to lie about how. Nobody knows... I'm just plain old me again.

I lay on my bed thinking about the events that have happened over the past month or so... I came to a new school in a small town knowing nobody, then I talk to this human that I thought I resented. But to find out that he is the one that finds out my secret. That makes me hate him even more, but I am somehow still drawn to him. I fall in love. I finally feel like everything is figured out in my life. I was on top of the world, when everything came crumbling from underneath me. I had to break up with the love of my life, just to protect him. Come to find that that did nothing but hurt the both of us. He almost dies, but I am lucky enough to save him in time. Now i'm here... Back to where I started... madly in love and afraid.

 I sit up from my bed and decide to go for a walk. I go to the place that was supposed to be a dreadful place now, but is now just a place filled with memories, good and bad. I get closer to the meadow, but I hear music. I can't understand the words yet, but it sounds nice. I get closer and hear a beautiful male voice. Singing beautiful lyrics. "If I lay here, if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world..."

I look through the tree branches that I have to go through to enter the meadow and see Alex, he has a guitar with him. He's the one singing... I walk in being as quiet as I can. I stand and listen. When the song ends I clap quietly. He looks at me startled. "Annabel!" He says, "Wha-what are you doing here?" I just giggled. "Listening to you... That was beautiful. Why didn't you tell me you had an amazing voice." I walked close to him. "You never asked." He says.

I sit down on the grass next to him. "It was amazing Alex, you are very talented." He gives me a half smile. "I'm not that amazing..." He says looking down playing with the guitar strings. "Yes you are." I say taking his hand. "Play me something." He just looks at me scared. I kiss him on the cheek. "I believe in you."

  'Give me love like her, cause lately I've been waking up alone. paint splattered tear drops on my shirt I told you I would let them go...' He started singing...

 I smiled at him as I joined. 'and that i'd fight my corner, ' I sang '

and that to night i'd call ya after my blood' he sang

'Has turned into alcohol' we harmonised.

"Oh..." He sang,

"Well, I just wanna hold ya and" we both sang and continued

'give a little time to me to burn this out we'll play hide and seek to turn this around all I want is the taste that you lips allow m-my m--my give me love.. M-my m-my give me love m-my m-my give me love m-my m-my give me love..."

' 'm-m-my m-m-my m-my give me love' I laughed as he sang that low part.

 'ooh ooh ohhh ooh' I sang.

'Give a little time to me we'll burn this out' he sang the rest of the song as I watched

 'we'll play hide and seek to turn this around all I want is the tast that your lips allow m-my m-my give me love..'

 I smiled and clapped and kissed him on the cheek. "You have a beautiful voice Bel" He said to me. I looked at him and laughed. "Bel?" I asked. "Is that okay?" I smiled again. "It's fine, it's just... my mother used to call me Bel..." He looked into my eyes. "I'm so sorry..." "Don't be... I kinda missed being called Bel... it makes me feel nice inside."

I put my head on his shoulder and wrapped my arms around his arm. I felt the warmth of his body, so nice. It made me smile. "She would've liked you, my mom... She would be happy that I love you." He smiled at me. "You love me?" I leaned in and kissed him. He ran his fingers through my hair and I giggled. "More than anything." I said.

We lay down on the grass. His guitar next to him. Us hand in hand couldn't feel more right. Nothing ever has felt more right, not until Alexander. "I meant what I said you know..." He said as we lay there. "What was that?" I say sitting up. "You have a beautiful voice, Annabel..." He said smiling. "I think you're crazy." I said laughing. "Crazy about you!" He said. "Ohh no! You're just flat out crazy!" I said. "We got a crazy one here!" I yelled laughing. "I'm not crazy!!" He yelled in a funny voice. I laughed.

"Sir I'm gonna need you to stay where you are!" I said. He started getting up as I did. "Sir, please... stay there." I started backing away slowly, smiling. He started walking towards me and I started running. Laughing hard as we ran around. "No!" I yelled giggling as he grabbed me to the ground. I wrestled and ended up on top of him. I pinned his arms down so that he had no way of getting away.

"You know you only won because I let you!" He said smirking still locked under my grasp. "I don't think so! I think you're just too afraid to admit that you got beat by a girl!" I gloated. "You're insane!" He said rolling his eyes kiddingly. "Insanely happy? Maybe. Insanely In love? Definitely. But insane? Never insane."

our faces where an inch apart as I finished my last words. My words after that where silenced as we kissed. Our lips moved perfectly together, as if they where made for each other. I took my hands off of his arms as we kissed, and he sat up. I stayed sitting on his lap as we kissed.

"Thank you," Alex said. "For what?" I asked smiling, looking into his beautiful eyes. "For changing my life, for saving my life, and for giving It purpose." I hugged him tightly. "You may say that I give your life purpose and that I saved and changed your life, but you gave me a chance at life." I said holding him in my grasp. He let go so I was looking in his eyes. "How so?"

 "When I came to this school, I felt like I had nobody. Like I was nobody. I felt like an emotionless zombie. All of them had been crushed. But from the second I met you, it was like everything was coming back to me. Nothing made sense before I met you... My world was empty. After I lost my mother, I thought I would never be able to love again, I thought I would never be able to live out my life, but now... sitting here, I have never felt more alive... If anyone should be doing the thanking it's me. Because you are the best thing in my life. You are my life now." He hugged me closely and tightly and whispered to me. "You deserve to have everything in this life Annabel." I smiled and looked up into his eyes. "I already do."


Love is something hard to find. People mistake many things for love. Like carring and understanding. But when you are in love, you really know. It isn't just something that your heart feels, but it becomes you. When you are in love, its like being in a fairytale. In the end, you'll always have your happily ever after, even if it takes longer than you wanted, you cant stop looking. It will come to you so fast and so suddenly, you will hardly even realize it. You'll see that person, and you'll understand exactly why it never worked out with anyone else in life, exactly why you were kept waiting for all these years, exactly why you where put through so many of these test. Everything just makes sense in love, even when it doesn't make sense, it does. But, love isn't like in the movies. It's hard. It takes time and patience and two people who are really true about it. two people who are really in love. Two people who are willing to make the sacrifices of a lifetime for their other. But when you have those two people, it makes life your own movie.
