The Immortal

Would you fight the evil that surrounded you? Would you risk your life to save another's? Would you try to save the whole human race? Well, would you?

If anyone had told Avia Green she was the only person in the world that couldn't turn immortal she would of laughed. Immortality? Demons? Evil? Please. But what if one man is trying to destroy the human race with what Avia created inside her head. What if Avia is the only one that can destroy him? What if the whole world is relying on Avia to free them of their evil spirits? Yeah what if.

4. Mixed Emotions

"You're late!"

Thea's voice greeted me at the door as I raced into Trixie's, the small little café that stood in the middle of Main-Street. Thea was occupied behind the bar, her hair pulled up out of her face in a bun as she worked the coffee machine.

"I'm sorry, I got held up," I apologised, walking into the staff room and grabbing my apron from the hook. I was doing up the strings as Emerson, walked in, a pen and a notebook in her hand.

"Avia we have heaps of tables today, chop-chop!"

"Sorry!" I apologised again, quickly throwing my hair into a high messy pony as I stepped out into the busy café. Trixie's was always famous for the unique meals and low prices but it was never this busy on a Thursday. I passed the bar and moved swiftly over to my section, Emerson giving me an encouraging smile as she waited on an elderly couple. I had only started working here with Thea two weeks ago so I was still learning what it took to be a successful waitress.

"Welcome to Trixie's, what can I get you this afternoon?" I asked, looking down at the table.

***

The rest of my shift ran smoothly without any tumbles, spills or accidents. It was close to six-thirty and the café was finally quite, Thea and I starting conversation behind the bar.

"So, mind telling me where you were today?" Thea asked, cleaning the bar top with a wet cloth.

"What do you mean?"

I had to keep Thea out of this for as long as I could because knowing her, she would tell everyone at Colton High that I was kidnapped by three troubled teenagers with enough secrets to fill the whole population.

Thea raised a perfect angled eyebrow and chucked the cloth in a sink, "You know exactly what I'm talking about, you missed all of your afternoon classes and you weren't at volleyball practise."

"Yes I know but-"

"She was with me."

Both of our heads turned to the entrance of the café where Jamie stood, his hands deep in his jacket pockets. His face was emotionless and his warm gleam of softness in his eyes was gone.

"Jamie?" Thea asked, looking at the clock above the bar, "We're closed."

"I know but it still says Trixie's is open," Jamie replied, pointing to the sign on the door. Thea rolled her eyes and walked over to fix the sign, nudging Jamie out of the way in annoyance.

"What do you want?" I grumbled.

Jamie ran his fingers through his hair and leaned against the bar, "I came to apologize, I know you want to find out what's going on but you will find out sooner or later, just not now."

"Find out what?" Thea asked, digging into a packet of peanuts she found on the counter, "And what were you two doing today?"

"Thea-"

"Oh my god, no way!"

I glanced at Jamie and looked back at my friend with wide eyes, "No it's-"

"Am I sensing a Javia romance coming on?"

Jamie and I snorted as Thea crossed her arms, her bright eyes full of curiosity.

"I wouldn't say that's the case unless..." Jamie joked and I smacked him with a tea towel.

"I don't think so, we were just called to do something, a life or death situation." See? I told the truth without giving anything away. Thea pouted and stamped into the staffroom, Jamie and I close behind.

"Life or death? Who was dying?"

"No one!" Jamie and I snapped and Thea put her hands up in an act of surrender.

"Sorry, god what's with you two today. So jumpy and stuff," Thea sighed, placing her apron on the hook. She grabbed her handbag just as our manager Melissa walked in.

"Hey girls, great work today. More busier than usual so that's a plus. Oh and we have a visitor?" Melissa beamed, her bright blue handbag waving around as she talked.

"I was just leaving," Jamie grinned, waving to Thea and I before walking out of the staffroom. Melissa raised an eyebrow and Thea shrugged as we all left to walk outside, the cold air causing goose bumps to appear on our skin. When we finally all got outside Jamie was gone.

"I'll lock up, see you girls on Friday," Melissa said, grabbing her keys out of her bag. Melissa was an older women but for her age she was very active and outgoing. Her great grandmother was Trixie Rose, the first owner of the Café and story be told, this place has been in the family for many generations.

"No worries, see you then," I said, walking over towards my bike that was chained to a pole. Thea ignored me as she unlocked her Blue Porsche and opened the door. The Porsche was a present from her rich stepfather but to be honest she really didn't need it. It really made her look snobbier then she was.

"I don't know what you're hiding," Thea hissed, her voice cutting into my thoughts, "But until you tell me the truth I think it's best we keep our distance."

Is she serious? "Please tell me you're joking."

Thea turned around with a scowl on her face, "I'm not kidding around Avia. I thought after my 'pregnancy scare' incident we wouldn't keep secrets anymore."

Oh yeah, like Thea isn't hiding something. That pregnancy scare was only a few months ago and who knows what else she's been up to, "Thea you have got to understand. If I tell you, you will tell the whole of Colton High and don't say you won't because what goes around comes around."

Thea gasped like she had been shot, "Are you for real?"

No Thea, I'm just snapping at you for no reason, "Why can't you just let me sort this out on my own?"

"Sort what out? Is this about Cole?" Thea asked, crossing her arms.

Oh great, this was slipping out of my mouth bit by bit, "Cole? Who's Cole?" I lied.

"Oh you know perfectly who he is. Nearly everyone knows about your disappearance, look for yourself."

Thea handed me her phone, pink rhinestones glittering reflections from the sun. Facebook was on the screen and my eye's grew bigger as I read a post from none other than Cara Sandilands.

'Omg! Is Avia Green going out with Cole or am I the only one who saw them together during lunch? Who knows what they got up to oh em gee what a skank!'

My sister thinks this girl is a role model?

"What? No nothing happened Thea I swear-"

"You might want to tell Cara that before she spreads the rumour you-"

"Enough."

I didn't have to turn around to know Cole was behind me. His voice was already hypnotising my brain and I had to get out of here before I lost it. Grabbing my bike, I chucked my bag onto the handle bar and pedalled down the Main-Street. It was torture but I forced myself not to look back as I turned the corner onto the street where most of the 'rich' kids lived. Big modern buildings towered over the little old homes in Colton, our town becoming more of a modern getaway then a cute country retreat like it used to be. Everyday people would build more big ugly houses and destroy homes that were built 100 years ago, ruining what's left of Colton.

I reached the end of the street and powered up the hill to where I lived, reaching my house in record time. That boy scared me and it was best I avoided him until tomorrow which I was already regretting.

"Who's Cole?" was the first thing I heard as I walked through the door. Ebony was sitting at the kitchen bench, her iPhone in her hand. It was clear she had seen the post Cara posted and I could tell by the mischievous smirk on her face that she was gonna spread the news.

"No one!" I snapped, chucking my bag on the counter and collapsing into a stool.

"He's someone. Cara just posted-"

"I know what she posted and it's not true. We talked, big deal now can you shut up?" I shouted, my mum walking in with an angry eye.

"Avia Rose we need to talk."

"What's there to talk about?" I sighed, playing with a silver chain that dangled on my wrist. Thea got it for me when I was fifteen as a friendship bracelet and I've always worn it since.

"There's plenty. How about we start with school, shall we? This Cole boy-"

"You told her?" I scowled, staring at Ebony with enough anger to rip at her throat.

Ebony rolled her eyes and continued looking at her phone, "She should know. She's our mother."

"Well maybe our mother would like to know you hung out with Cara at school today."

"Ebony," my mother said sternly.

"Oh come on, she invited me to hang out with her at lunch, big whoop," Ebony stuttered.

"And she kissed Zane Kennedy." This made my mum lose her temper.

"Why do I feel like you girls don't trust me?" She cried, stamping out of the kitchen. I exchanged glances at Ebony before walking out to comfort my stressed out mother.

"I'm sorry," I apologised, sitting down on the sofa beside her, "Cole's just a...person that I talked to and Cara took it the wrong way., that's all."

"And Zane kissed me, just saying,"Ebony included with a small smile.

Mum sighed and put her arms around me, hugging me close. I felt tears sinking through my sleeve and she got up and wiped her eyes, "Tomorrow is the anniversary of your father's death and it's making me very emotional that's all."

Oh yes, our father. He died when mum was pregnant with Lilly and it caused us all to have a big meltdown. Not just because he had a big impact on our family but he was murdered in the forest behind our house and the killer was never found. Why was he in the forest that night? We would never know. The hard part was that Jamie's dad died the same night, beside him and just thinking about it brings me to tears. I'm still morning his death and not just because he's gone but because his death is still left unanswered.

I jumped as Lilly suddenly ran into the room, her little chubby legs falling beneath her body. I laughed and picked her up, snuggling her into my shoulder.

"I'm just glad I have three beautiful girls that will be here for me no matter what," mum sniffed. We all hugged, our father's voice still in our heads.

'Don't ever forget how much your mother and I love you. You will face challenges and obstacles throughout your life and I know that we won't always be around to help you but don't think of it as something to grieve about. Get on with your life with your head held high because we will always be there.'

Holding in my tears, we all wrapped our arms around each other. Today was one of the most scariest days of my life but I wasn't going to let that frighten me. I had to keep going and like my father said, I had to keep my held high because he was always going to be there.
