15. The Plan
I stayed the night at the academy. I had fallen asleep in Alex's bed he stayed awake watching me and making sure I came to no harm. He had me back and he wasn't going to let me go. Not without a full scale war.
I woke up to Alex talking to someone. I sat up and looked around, "I'm sorry sweetie did we wake you?" Alex asked walking over to me "No" I smiled hugging him. "That's good." He turned back to his friend still holding me "Morning Kate!" James smiled happy to see me, "Morning" I smiled back. I looked like a zombie.
I went for a bath and when I came out the headmaster and Alex were at it again. "The orphanage called and said you were there the other night! And now she's missing!" The headmaster yelled at Alex as I dried my hair and the both noticed me standing there, I paused and looked at them then Alex ran over to me and put his arms up as he stood in front of me pretending to be a shield. "ALEX!" The headmaster shouted "Kate come with me you're going back to the orphanage!" He grabbed my arms and pulled me past Alex, Alex then grabbed my arm and started fighting over who got me. "Stoop!" I called arms aching, they let me go, "Look Headmaster I'm sorry I know you're doing what you have to but I don't want to be in that place. I can't actually be away from Alex because he's the only one keeping the Demon away! Please I'm so afraid to be alone with that demon. Alex makes sure it stays away. Please... Please" I looked at him this was all true but he didn't believe me. "I'm calling the orphanage." And with that he left. Alex pulled me into his arms. I started and shake. Alex held me tightly.
When Jane arrived she was shown to Alex's room in the boys dorm. Alex and I sat in the dark on the black and red velvet lounge, not turning when they entered just looking out the window with the black curtains draped over them half open letting in the sunlight making the bookshelves glow golden. "Katie?" Jane asked I didn't move but Alex put his arm around me and sat up. He was sitting behind me, he kissed the back of my neck and shoulders. "Kate we're going now." She spoke nervously, "You do realise Vampires are humans. They're just more sensitive and much more powerful. For instance Alex knew you were nervous before you even entered the room. " I spoke calmly telling nothing but the truth. We had a plan.
But it completely failed. The police got evolved as well as the headmaster and all the other Vampires in the academy.
Alex's last words as I was put into the car were "Let the battle for true love begin!" And we both smiled at each other one part of the plan didn't work but we had back up plans.
We are going to be together!
