As I went over to the freezer, I grabbed a pack of ice and closed the freezer. I placed the Ice pack on my bruises and sighed. Harry freaking Styles, does he really have to grab me by the neck and yell at me. I don't blame him, actually I do blame him. Me out of everybody doesn't know about Charmine. I mean, how was I not suppose to know that there was a human being lurking around our part of the forest, they would think me as stupid. I would call myself stupid. If I see Harry tonight, I might have to face him.
But it's worth the fight. I walked the hallway and began to hear voices. They must be talking about the situation that just happened. I could really use some pity from them right now. I walked even further the hall and found Lillia bumping into me. She gasped as I dropped the ice pack accidentally on her collarbone. I mumbled a 'oops' as I grabbed the ice pack from her. She sighed angrily and stomped down the hallway. I turned over to a couple of people who just saw.
"What's up with her...." I said as I glanced over to the girl in front of me.
"Zayn?" She called out. The girl smiled at me. What is Charmine even doing here. I smiled back at her until I found Harry right behind her. I removed my smile and chewed on my bottom lip. Charmine looked up at Harry and Harry nodded as he removed his hand on her shoulder. She ran over to me as she hugged me.
"Neck, Neck." I reminded as she quickly removed her grip around me, even though I didn't want her too.
"Sorry, I forgot. What happened to you?" She asked me. I didn't know what to say, looking for help, I looked over to Harry who shook his head slowly.
"Huh, a pack of wolves kinda jumped onto me when I wasn't looking." I lied. She tried to smile but she couldn't as she grabbed the ice pack and placed it at an area that I never knew that was bruised also. I was surprised as that ice touched my bare warm skin. She noticed that I flinched and instantly removed the ice pack from my skin.
"Sorry, there's an area that you missed." She apologized. I nodded as she looked for an response but I didn't say anything, I was wondered about what I say, Harry would just get angrier. I have to watch my actions, Harry is right there watching.
"Anyways, I'm just glad that you are okay." She said in relief. As I was about to say something, Harry walked up and tapped Charmine on the shoulders.
"I think you met everybody now Charmine. I think its time for us to talk." He reminded her. What are they going to talk about. Does it involve me.
"Yeah your right, talk to later okay Zayn." She said as she walked away with Harry. Right now, I feel lonely and left alone with a bunch of questions.
C h a r m i n e
As we entered a room, I started to feel conscious about myself. Harry sat on a chair and guided me to sit on a chair next to his.
"So what did you want to tell me." I questioned me him. He chuckled.
"Um excuse, you were the one who forced me to tell you." He smiled. He made his two dimples show and they were completely adorable. I mean, that I've never even noticed before.
"Okay okay, just spill it." I said defeated as I laughed. Whatever he is going to tell me sounds serious right now but it is quite amazing that we got to share a laugh together.
"Fine ok. But don't freak out ok." He begged. i nodded as I listened very closely. As he was about to say something, we heard a bit of movement outside the hallway. I turned around and he glanced over to the door. As I looked back at him, he tilted is head a bit and the door closed. Woah. I gasped as I heard the door lock itself. Does vampires have super powers? Before I could ask, he began to talk.
"Okay, so when you escaped, from me that day. Some guards from the Vampire Council sent us over to court." he started off. Who is the Vampire Council. What does this have to do with me.
"Who is the Vampire Council?" I asked.
"They are our government, they basically make the rules and when you break them, well consequences will be made eventually." he answered. I nodded.
"And they asked us this question. And basically, we had to lie so they wouldn't get involve in our problem, my problem." He continued. All of these questions were running through my head. What was his problem? What was the question that he had to lie?
"What was the question they asked you?" I was really fond about that question and I really wanted to know the answer, was it a good question. Of course it wasn't good, they had to lie about it.
"They asked us if we've seen a human girl. I had to lie about it, like I said, I don't want them involved, ......and I don't want them to hurt you." He whispered the last part. My lips were parted as I thought about the last few words he said. He doesn't want me to get hurt? But why though, I've only met him a few days ago. But it just feels like we've met years ago.
"Wait, if they asked you about me. How did they know that you might know?" I mean, it could have been anybody that might have spotted me." I assured. He nodded as he fiddled with his fingers.
"I know but since the day you walked into the forest, you have only wandered through this part of the forest, which is the One Direction's Territory. People from the Vampire Council have noticed something weird so they consulted the head leader of the security. They still weren't sure if we were telling the truth so they placed us in probation, but the probation only affects when we walk deeper into the forest as in, an area that we don't own." He explained
So the Vampire Council called Harry and the others because they suspected a human roaming around at there part of the forest, called them because of me. If Harry hasn't found me, I would have been walking around outside by now, in the cold dark night. If Harry and the others are on probation, there must been guards around the perimeter of this around. Thank God.
"So everything that you've been through, its my fault." I whispered. His lips were parted as if he were about to say something but nothing came. Just a knock on the door. I glanced over to the door and back at Harry. Harry stood up and walked over to the door and opened it, revealing Lillia.
"Harry, dinner is ready." She reminded him as he nodded his head. Lillia popped her head into the room and had an surprised reaction when she laid her eyes on me.
"Oh, Charmine. Your still here. You can join us for dinner if you want." She said gratefully. She looked back at Harry and he smiled as she left. I sighed as I stood up from the chair and tried to walk out of the room, but a hand grabbed my arm and I was pulled back. I met Harry's eyes, I didn't know what to do when I'm at this situation. I looked down at his grip and slowly removed my hand from his.
"Sorry." He mumbled as he just stood there and dug his hands into his pocket. I chewed my bottom lip.
"It's alright. I think I should be going now." His face looked shocked and I was afraid of what was going to happen next. He shook his head.
"No stay for dinner please. You can't go outside alone during the night, It's dangerous." He assured. I guess he is right. I don't want to die tonight if that makes any sense at all. Plus I'm kinda curious of what vampires eat at dinner. Blood, cells, more blood. I think that's all what vampires eat.
"Fine." I agreed as he flashed a smile at me as we went outside to the dinner table.
"Anyone want some of my homemade blood pudding?" Louis exclaimed as he took a spoonful of it into his mouth. I couldn't help but watch him eat it. I don't know why. I just don't want to know what kind of blood it is and where it came from. I glanced around the table and seems that everybody is eating something blood type, including Harry and Zayn.
"Charmine. I forgot about you. What do humans eat?" Louis asked. I shrugged my shoulders. If I ask them what I wanted to eat, they probably will just decline and give me there type of food.
"They actually eat, food that don't really have blood in them." I answered politely, not looking for an reaction from them. When Louis was about to reply, I heard a door close and footsteps coming down the hall. It was Niall. He went over to put on his jacket and his shoes.
"I'll be back, I'm just going to buy some chicken wings." Niall said. Yum chicken wings. I wish I could have some too. I could see from the corner of my eye that Harry was looking at me since he sat right beside me.
"Um Niall. Could you bring Charmine with you. Since you both like normal food." harry suggested. I looked over to him and his gave me a warm smile, I returned it back.
"Sure. ready Charmine?" Niall called out. I glanced over to him and nodded. I stood up from my chair and pushed it in as I walked over to Niall.
"Will be back." I reassured as I Niall opened the door for me and I walked outside. Just as Niall was about to close the door. I heard Harry shout out,
"Keep her safe." Until we were out of sight from them.

Charmine and I have been walking into the forest for about 3 minutes since we left the house and I kinda feeling a bit reckless right now. We were walking on a path out of the forest and since we are going to go on land to the human world, Charmine can finally go home. Does she still want to go home?
"What are you thinking about?" Charmine interrupted. I looked up to her and shrugged my shoulders.
"It's nothing really." I calmed her, she frowned.
"Oh come on Niall, we haven't talked since we left the house." I wasn't really talkinh because I was kinda worried that you would leave us when we just met a few days ago. I really feel bad of Charmine that we haven't talked, but I have a reason for it.
"I know and I'm sorry. I'm just feeling a bit down." I assured. She frowned again just it soon changed into a smile when we were out of the forest. She squealed as she ran over to the sidewalk.
"Oh my god, I thought I would never see this again." She said happily. I don't why seeing her so happy made me feel, good inside. Probably it was her smile and her energy that I could feel in between us.
"Well, your heart never betrayed you. Yours thoughts can but never your heart." I praised her. She looked at me with no expression which made me think that I said the worng thing. Before she could say anything. I added,
"Let's get those chicken wings?" She smiled as he began to walk to the nearest restaurant that sells almost the best chicken wings I have ever tasted. Nandos.
