Enough Is Enough
*Part One Of 'Me Against The World*


8. Cassie

The bloodline is, the bloodline flows,
That's just the way it goes,
Dreams and past,
Come to last,
And little boy blue runs from it

Liam’s POV-
“Umm, anyone here for Cassie Smith?” I wake up and see the doctor looking around the waiting room, I stand up and walk over to him “Y-yes…” “I-I have no idea how she did it, but somehow she is alive… We watched her die half an hour ago…Even though…” “I-it’s ok, at least she’s alive. Can I go see her?” “Y-yes” he says, I can tell he’s shocked at her survival. I start crying “T-thank you...” I can’t help it. “She will have to stay here two days then she can go, same with Lia” “Umm, what about the little girl, umm Luna?” “Oh, she’s just beat cancer!  Congratulations! Umm, she’s supposed to go home with her mother but because of what happened we need to find her a new guardian…” he looks at me “Umm, how old do you have to be?” “Umm, you have to be 18 within the next 3 months…” I look at the ground, I’m 18 in a year, then a thought came to my head “Umm, I just gotta do something, be back in about 5 minutes…” the doctor nods, I quickly walk over to Louis “L-Louis, wake up…” god I hope he wakes up and doesn’t kill me “What?” he asks and starts stretching. “Umm, you know Luna?” “Yeah?” “Well she doesn’t have anyone to take care of her, like a legal guardian and you need to be at least 17 turning 18 within the next 3 months…” “And…. What does this have to do with me?” “How old are you, and how old are the rest of us guys?” he looks around “S-so you want me to be a legal guardian for some kid we met today?” “No, she’s my cousin!” I scream in his face “Ok, but what’s wrong with Cassie taking her?” “W-well she already has Lia and that’s not really legal…” I lean in and whisper in his ear “Same with Arietta…” he looks at me and smiles “Ok, so I’m a legal guardian at 17! Woo! Fantastic, does this mean I’m going to be married at 19?” he looks at me and smiles “You never know Louis, you never know…”

Cassie’s POV-
The next two days were full of doctors constantly checking up on me and the boys visiting me constantly, Lia seems to be going well and we get to leave tomorrow morning. These were the thoughts that were going through my head last night, the thoughts that were going through my head before she came in. She threw me to the ground and started clawing at me, tearing my clothes and scratching me up, punching me in the head, and knocking me unconscious. I am sick of this, I am sick of life, why didn’t I just die then? It’s been two weeks since I left the hospital and I don’t want to talk to anyone, I hardly leave the room because it’s too hard to face any of them. I’ve decided I’ve had enough, since I’ve came into their lives I’ve been a pain. I’ve caused them so much trouble. I can’t stand this anymore but I’m going to continue for as long as I can but as soon as I cause them one more bit of trouble, I’m gone.

Niall’s POV-
I lie in bed, ever since we’ve gotten home Cassie hasn’t said a word to me, She’s changed since her mother nearly killed her. She doesn’t laugh, smile, talk, she hardly ever eats and she stays in a dark room all day. She seems to be thinking, but about what.  I have no idea, I’m even lost myself, I have no idea how to feel, why did she go? I feel broken, worried, angry, shocked, upset, happy, relieved and confused as what I should feel. Why is life so complicated? Why was a too late?

Zayn’s POV-
It’s confusing, we’ve all been quiet. Eventually Louis, Harry and I are able to have a joke, but it isn’t the same. The thing is that Cassie won’t talk to us, she locks herself in her room, she was never like that before. At least as far as I was concerned, we all know Liam and the rest of their family isn’t Human, what are they? Well Liam is human but Cassie isn’t, I know that. Liam just has the curse and he can probably do something in human but it doesn’t mean he isn’t human until he turns into a cockroach or a vampire or something. Wouldn’t that be funny? I can’t picture any of us as vampires, can you? I decide that enough is enough, I’m sick of leaving Niall and Cassie to sulk in their rooms. I’m going up there, I decided to go get the others. I go up to the others “I’m sick of this. Harry, Louis, you go get Niall, Liam you’re coming with me.” Harry and Louis sprint up to Niall’s room while Liam follows me to Cassie’s room. I knock on the door but there was no answer, I had a strange feeling in the bottom of my stomach. I tried to open the door but it was still locked, I quickly get out the key. Liam looks at me like I’m going stupid. Probably because I’m fiddling with the keys so much and I’m shaking so much. I managed to cut my finger on my pocket knife, shit. I quickly enter the room and I can hear the shower running “Cassie?” I call, no answer “Liam, you can go in…” he looks at me “What? N-no…” he starts backing away from the door “What? You’re her cousin, not me.” I look at him, he shakes his head. “F-fine…” I back away from the door while Liam opens the door “Shit! Zayn!” I quickly walk in and see Cassie, lying in a pool of blood “W-what the fuck?” I look at her as Liam sits her up “I-I didn’t mean to cut so deep…” she looks at Liam. “I knew I should have asked her about this…”

Cassie’s POV-
I don’t know what came over me, I kind of got the urge to bite my arm, I remember the pain, I didn’t mean to cut so deep. I suddenly got dizzy, I was about to pass out when Liam comes in the bathroom. Thank god “I-I didn’t mean to cut so deep…” I look up at Liam, he began to say something but suddenly everything went black. Not red, black. So I think I just passed out.
I wake up in the Lounge room with a bandage around my arm, I can feel the stinging in my arm. I am an idiot, why did I bite myself? Gosh, I have no idea. I look around and see Niall asleep on the floor in front of me, Liam is asleep on the couch next to mine, Louis was lying on the floor, looking like he was face planting the ground. Zayn was sitting down watching TV on the small couch and Harry was sitting on my feet “Harry!” I scream, he looks at me and smirks. “God, I never thought you would wake up…” he says, leaning towards me, suddenly our lips meet and something over took me, I don’t know what but something did, I kissed him back, the kiss was getting more intense as we slowly moved to the kitchen, avoiding Zayn. We head down the hall, somehow still keeping out lips intact. He pushes me against the wall and puts my hands above my head “Ow!” I cry out. He looks up and sees my bandaged hands and drops my right, the injured one. I decided to put my arm around his head and play with his curls, they were all fluffy and they seemed to bounce back into place. We were probably like that for 5 minutes before Liam comes bursting through the Hall and ripped Harry away from me “What did I say to you last time harry!” “L-Liam, what’s wrong?” I was confused. “Cassie go to the Lounge room!” Liam screams at me “What the hell is your problem?” I screamed and I decided that Liam was a dick head. I was furious, what the hell was his problem, what is his problem, I was with Harry, what was wrong with that? I burst into the lounge room and I caught a reflection of my eyes in the mirror, they were black. What the hell? I scream as I run across the hall and into my room, I lock the bedroom door and run into the bathroom and lock that door too. I get a hold of the edge of the bench and I look at my reflection in the mirror, my normally blue eyes were still black and my brown hair had red at the ends, it looked like it was on fire. I was full on freaking out, I start putting my hands on my face and I drop to the floor, just before I hit the ground the door gets kicked in and I land in someone’s arms. What is it with me today?
I’ve seemed to calm down now, my eyes and hair is back to normal. It ended up being Niall who caught me, lucky. I have no idea why I passed out, maybe because I was freaking out, I have no idea. The funny thing was that when I went to clean up the blood nothing was there, except for a pile of dust, it was weird, but enough said I have no idea what is going on. My life has turned from weird to weirder.

Zayn’s POV-
When Cassie burst into the lounge room I swear her hair was on fire or something, because it looked like it and then she looked in the mirror and screamed. I immediately followed her but she locked her bedroom door, I started to fiddle with the lock and it opened, suddenly I head another scream and a few bangs. Her bathroom door was also locked, but this one doesn’t work when I fiddle with it, I call Niall and he comes up to me. Eventually we work together to get the door open, as we open the door I see Cassie dropping to the floor. She had passed out, Niall quickly caught her, stopping her fall. What is going on? Has the process started already?

Michaels POV-
It’s been a while since we were in the hospital. I’ve been getting along with the guys, well not Niall. He won’t talk to anyone, either will Cassie. It’s confusing, I know what is happening to her, as soon as she is fully changed I have to disappear, I’ll re-spawn with another kid. I’ll have to take care of them until they finish the process then I’ll have to restart again. That’s how it goes, if you’re a demon’s keeper the thing is that no-one knows what she’ll be, not even I know. So as far as I know she’s becoming a demon and I got a feeling she’s going to be a hybrid. She’s got too much power and too much essence to her. She’ll be the first hybrid, born a human and hopefully the last. You see the family curse is different for each member of a family, one generation it could be that they can’t touch anyone, another will be extremely angered person or even a murderer. One they could be sent straight to the underworld or they could become a demon. Their essence is chosen when they are born. There are three groups Death Siren, Blood Valliant or Angels Kiss. They all mean something different. A Death Siren had powers that range from Death Stare to Hollows Call. For the death stare, if you make eye contact with anyone they turn to dust and for the Hollows Call, if anyone hears your voice they become weeping angels. A ‘blood Valliant’ is someone that rather becomes a Demon and kills people or they become Murderers. An ‘angels kiss’ is someone who if they come into contact with anyone they turn to stone, or they are simply sent to the underworld. I’ve had my fair few Angels, but they all become evil, well all except one. Her name was Zayna, she was Zayn’s great, great grandmother who mixed with the wrong crowd and she was cursed. None of them know what happened to Zayna, but I do.

Zayn’s POV-
As I sit on the lounge with Cassie curled into a ball on my lap, she’s shivering. I have no idea why, it’s actually quite hot tonight. I pull the blanket of the ground and wrap it around her, but she continues to shiver. I look at her and notice her eyes. They’re black again. Shit, what to do, what to do. “Michael!” I scream, he may not be able to hear me though. Suddenly he appears in front of me “God, you got to stop doing that!” I quickly try to catch my breath, noticing that I was holding it. “Umm, do you know what’s happening?” I look up at him “The transformation is trying to choose what she’ll be. She could be anything, a Hells angel or a Vampire comparing her symptoms. She also has slight effects shown in Werewolves and Humans so I am guessing she’s going to become a hybrid…” he says looking down at me. “You probably have to put up with this for another week then the final transformation is in a month.” “So does that mean you’re going to have to leave?” he looks at the T.V and sighs “I have no idea, when Zayna became an angel, she became one of gods angels, I stayed with her for a month, then I had to go. But this is different, I know she’s becoming a demon, it’s in her essence” he looked at me directly in the eye “You’re going to have to take care of her when I’m gone, can I trust you with that?” I look down at Cassie, her body sweating, she’s in so much pain and I wish I could help. I would love to take care of her but I see the way she looks at Niall, I see how much they mean to each other. And what about Liam? He’s supposed to take care of her “M-Michael W-what about Liam? He’s supposed to be the one taking care of her… “ I say, my words trailing of as Cassie’s muscles tighten and she lets out a silent scream. “Zayn, I know what you’re thinking and I know she’ll get hurt in the end.” I think, what does he mean? Will Niall hurt her? I have absolutely no idea, thinking about this made me worried as a stroked her cheek. I would make sure I’m the one who is there to look after her if he does. I love her and I’m sure of that.
