“hello.” said smooth, honey voice. My eyes flew open and there was Ashton. He was smiling calmly and I looked around, we were in a pit! I started panicking. “So, are you going to talk or shall this turn unpleasant.” I shook my head. He sighed and then disappeared. Extreme pain and agony was all I could feel. I clamped my mouth shut and thrashed on the floor of the crevice. White, yellow, green, blue, all the colours you could imagine danced before my eyes. I felt like I was breaking, mentally and physically. “ ASHTON!” I screamed, “ASHTON HELP! I'LL TALK!” all of a sudden, everything stopped. I was in the pit. He was there, looking amused. “ I came here because my maker was mad at me for drinking everybody's blood in a mall.” His eyes glinted with shock. “ and I did not want him anymore, he was planting illusions in peoples minds, like me, making them believe him. He wants to take over, but I burned him.” “what are your powers?” he asked. I turned my head closing my mouth. “very well.” he breathed and then was gone.

* * *

I was bended backwards from the pain. My spine shrieked in protest. I was shivering uncontrollably. Wait. What was that? I could make out some amusement in the air! Ashton! Maybe I could somehow find were he was hiding so I could go there too! I closed my eyes and searched. Yes! I felt him. I gripped at this strand of emotion and pulled on it, letting it lead me to his safety. Then, I saw through his eyes. He was standing over me grinning but we were not in the cave! We were in the living room! He turned and I saw Kaleb laughing. JK was trying not to look sick and Elizabeth looked like she was hiding her thoughts. He turned back to me and I could see why JK had that expression. My face was contorted in a sick expression. I was sprawled all over the floor, convulsing and shaking, as spasms of pain overtook me. Yes I could still feel them. It was all a illusion! That was Ashton's powers. “turn the pain up a notch or two.” said Kaleb “ she cant take more of that. Did you hear her begging for it to stop?” and then he mimicked me screaming for Ashton to make it stop. That was it. I let out a scream, but not of pain, it was of fury.

* * *

My eyes flew open and I jumped to my feet, crouched in a defensive stance. I saw the shock on all there faces and then JK smiled, like he was expecting this. “you monsters!” I shouted at them. My voice sounded strangely hoarse. I backed away from them, heading towards the door. I stared at them in fear, my eyes betraying everything I felt. “No, no.” said Elizabeth “were just trying to help you.” “HELP ME!” I screeched at her “helping does not involve people hurting one another.” I said coldly. She flinched, like she had and electric shock. I glanced quickly at Ashton, making sure he would not take me off guard. He was looking at me with shock and interest, like I was an animal in a experiment who preformed surprisingly well. I snarled. “ we ARE trying to help you! We just needed this information!” “you're just like the rest of them!” I spat at her “ trying to capture me because of my powers.” And then I bolted for the door.

* * *

The wind blew my hair in every direction. I avoided all the trees, trying to make it back to my house. I casts my senses out and found no one. I slowed, I was at my place. I threw myself on my bed and lay there. Thinking of what would it be like tomorrow. I lay there in the dark listening for any sings of intruders. What a horrible day! First Kara, then Kyle and now The four vampires! I screamed in frustration. Maybe I should just leave. But the thing was, I couldn't, it was like there was a pull. Something binding me here. That's what brought me here in the first place. What am I going to do about Elizabeth and her coven? I assumed it was hers because the seemed to follow her. Shes assuring me that they want to help me , her anyway, I saw the truth in her thoughts. But why did she hurt me? Did they know some stuff about me and that's why she said she needed more information? I lay there for the rest of the night, brooding and thinking.

* * *

I got up popping my joints. I giggled, thinking of Francisco's face. He hated when I did that, so that's why I did it. I gathered my books and put it in a bag. I put on a gray shirt and some shorts. And I ran to school. I stayed in the forest and then went into the main road, leading to the school. My shades were back on. No sign of the coven. I sighed in relief and let myself sink into comfort. And I went to my gym class. In there, Kara and her mob were scowling at me, but did not come near. Finished getting changed, I got up and went into the building.

* * *

The gym teacher, miss Hearst, smiled warmly at me. I was getting to being her favorite. We had moved on to tennis. Everyone split into pairs, they all (except Kara and her friends) wanted me in their team, but they were scared. They all went to go practice except one. She was sitting on the bench, gazing after them. I could not read her mind either. She looked up at me and suddenly she was wary. “hi!” I said “hello...” “so do you want to team up?” I asked. She burst out laughing. Then she saw my scowl and then sobered up. “wow, you are serious! Its just no one picks me for teams because I suck at most sports, including this one. In fact I suck at ALL land sports.” Then she squinted at me and shock and bewilderment registered in her eyes. “ Y- you're one of them.” I assumed she was talking about Elizabeth and co. “ we are not related.” I said firmly. She looked me up and down again and then shrugged. “ I'm probably being stupid trusting you, but I think you are actually nice.” “thanks.. I guess.” And then she grabbed my hand. Her touch was colder than mine! And dragged me to the rackets.

* * *

She was not kidding, she absolutely SUCKED at this. She had no coordination and looked clumsy and out of place around these kids. For some reason, her blood smell didn't, well, smell like normal blood. It smelled sour and like the sea. Maybe we could actually be friends, me not wanting to drink her life away. She took a swing at the ball I served and somehow hit herself on her head. I rushed to her at human pace and hovered uncertainly. She burst out laughing and I soon joined in. “ man! You should have seen your face!” she said and then doubled over laughing. Her face was red, or was it more like purple? Everyone stared at us as we laughed and rolled on the court. “ OKAY, OKAY, PRACTISE IS OVER.” yelled Miss Hearst “LADIES! GET A HOLD OF YOURSELVES!” we stopped laughing immediately. “OK now, we are going to play some games. A tournament.” and she pointed us to different courts, saying that this was the round Robbin.

* * *

We ended up against two boys named Ben and Steve. I served. And they hit it back, My partner swung and somehow hit it, scoring a point! And we kept going. The game ended. We won the two games. We then moved on to the semifinals. We beat Sam and Lola. Then we went to the finals. We were up against Kara and Stephanie. “this is the farthest I ever got!” My teammate exclaimed. The ball went back and forth. All of us swinging our hardest. (well, my HUMAN hardest) We were in our third game. We had both won one game. And we were tied point wise. Kara swung and then missed, giving us the winning point. People cheered and miss Hearst came and told us “ congrats! You both get and A+” My partner whooped swinging her racket, witch then flew out of her hands and hit Kara on her head. She crumbled onto the floor unconscious. We all left to get changed then, while Kara got rushed to the nurse.

I hung out with my new friend, she told me her name was Eloise. She had Long dirty blond hair that hung to her waist and grayish-blue eyes. She was very pretty but uncoordinated, like a fish out of water. She had a aura that was definitely NOT human but I could not figure out what. We entered the cafeteria and went to order. I only took a apple but she took some fish-sticks, a bottle of water and some anchovies. We sat in a table in the back of the cafeteria and laughed at her mistake at hitting Kara. “man, she is SO going to kill me!” said Eloise swallowing her lunch. “ewe ! How can you eat that!” she grinned at me “ I love fish related stuff, just like you love warm-blooded things.” I stiffened. Did she know I was a vampire or was that just a coincidence. She rolled her eyes at me and then said in a low voice.” you know, you don't have to keep the pretense up near me. I know what you are. That's why I was hesitant to trust you. Don't worry.” she said as she saw my expression “I wont betray your secret cause I have one of my own that you'll find out very soon. Friends?” I sighed and said “friends” the bell rang then, telling me it was time for history oh great.

* * *

Well. That was unexpected. When I got into history, he was talking to five other girls, completely ignoring me. Anger shook me. I held my head high and threw myself forcefully onto my seat. It groaned quietly. I felt pain, sadness, anger, terror and revulsion. If he was going to play like that, I would too. I turned my back on him and started flirting with some guys next too me. As Mr. Byres started a pop quiz, I felt his furious gaze on my back. I smiled to myself. When the period was done we both got up at the same time, bumping into each other. I jumped back mildly embarrassed and shocked. Hiss skin was worse then fire! He flinched away from me, rubbing the spot where our shoulders came into contact. As I was proceeding out the door, a ish-looking guy walked pass me saying “see you at our date.” I stopped. Frozen in place, my eye widening, I vaguely remember agreeing to go out with him. I groaned and then shot daggers at Kyle as he walked by Laughing his rear off.
