(By the way, Charmine is pronounced as "Kar-min". Not "Char-min". Just to avoid confusion through out the story :))
C h a r m i n e
We got him boys.
I looked over to Lillia and then glanced back at the door. One of them got shot. Oh my god, please this is not happening. In the corner of my eye, I could see Liam approaching me. He sat beside as he placed a hand on my shoulder.
"Everything will be alright Charmine." He advised softly. Doesn't he know that somebody just got hurt.
"No everything is not going to be alright, someone just got hurt. Didn't you here?" I corrected. I couldn't help but feel angry about myself. That's when I realized that I was already crying, crying because of everything. Why does my life have to be screwed up. I lost my real parents, I'm not even sure if I want to see my fake parents, I'm here in a house full of vampires and a bunch of police man are working so hard just to help me but I just keep hiding from them.
"Yeah I heard, but I know they will be alright." He agreed. As I looked over to Liam, I just noticed why he didn't go with the others.
"Liam, why didn't you go with Harry and the others." I questioned as I wiped the remaining tears off my cheek.
"I'm important. The boys don't want me to get hurt because if I die, we all die." He answered. Is Liam the leader of the group. Is he the one who makes sure everybody is cooperating and the one making the rules. Is he the one Zayn has been talking about.
"What do you mean, your important? How?" I asked again.
"Each Vampire has a trait, some kind of power that helps us with life whe it comes to being a vampire. I have the power to heal people, even though they are badly hurt and beaten." I nodded. So he has the power to heal anybody.
"Even a human?" He nodded with a small smile. That explains why my ankle healed in just one hour. That healing cream that Harry offered. That must be his. I'm kinda glad that we have a vampire doctor here, I don't know why but it jsut makes me feel safer around here. My head shot up as I heard grunting and creaking outside the metal door. I quickly stood up, having Liam to do so too.
I watched as the metal door flew open, revealing Zayn and Louis carrying Niall. Oh my God. Niall was covered in blood, his right knee was shot.
"Niall." I whispered as I slowly walked closer to him. No. Zayn and Louis carried him over to the couch and laid him there as Liam anazlyed him. I ran over to Niall and crouch down to him holding his hand.
"Niall, you'll be alright. I promise." I told him. He began to take deep breaths as he slowly nodded. His knee was busted and it looked really painful. I can't believe he took a hit because of me.
"That's it, take deep breaths. Don't give up. Liam will do everything to heal you." I vowed. I felt his hand shake as Liam began to bring his hand up above his busted knee. I watch the skin slowly reattached itself and the blood fades. All was left was stained blood and a hole on his jeans. Niall stopped shaking and his face was neutral.
I removed his hand from mine and he got off the couch. I smiled at him and gave him a hug.
"Thank you so much Liam." I mumbled as I removed myself from Niall and went over to Liam and gave him a big hug. He was surprised and returned in back.
"No problem, that's what I do." He chuckled, I smiled back at him. I glanced over to Zayn who had a frown on his face and went over to him.
"What you did out there was amazing. You just helped a friend and saved all of us." I told him. He smiled as I gave him a hug. The door bust open and in came Harry. I totally forgot about him and I felt sorry for him. I removed myself from Zayn and ran over to Harry. He was shocked but calmed down as he wrapped his arms around me. I looked over to Louis and he smiled at me. I laughed as a tear fell down on my check.

As We went outside of the bunker. I started to get worried. What if they find Charmine and take her away from us, away from me. I just heard that Charmine and I are now best friends. I know that she thinks of me that way but I want to be something more. I made my way up the stairs as the room went full pitch black. I turned my night vision on and scanned the room. There are five to seven police officers out here. I turned my attention to Louis and Niall to clear the kitchen. Zayn and I will just blend in the dark.
I continued to walk over to the Liams lab but I heard a crack.
"Who's goes there! Show yourself. Boys. I think there's somebody over here." A man shouted out. He beamed the flashlight near the kitchen but Louis and Niall avoided it. Louis then grabbed a kitchen knife and I shot him a glare.
"We don't kill humans Louis" I sent him a mind message along with a glare
"Well this is just to scare them off." He replied. I rolled my eyes as A police officer went closer and closer to the kitchen. I then went over to one of them and covered his mouth and twisted his neck until he fell unconscious. One of the officers noticed, as Louis went over and began to wave the knife over to another officer.
"Over there. He's got a knife. Fire!" A man yelled and began to shoot. As I dodged the bullets quickly, I went over to them and grabbed there guns anyway from them. Niall went over to do the same along with Zayn until we think that all of them don't have a weapon. Until a man come into the house with a pistol. Zayn. I was about to warn him since he was in the middle of the room but Niall pushed him away and got shot instead. Niall began to moan in pain as I heard one of the officers.
"We got him boys." He rang as he began to reload his gun again. I could feel my blood boil. Maybe now I'll make an exception. But I have to stay calm and remember not to show my real side of me.
"Zayn, Louis. Bring Niall back to the bunker. I'll take care of this." I told them each by sending them a mind message. I received a nod as they picked up Niall and went back downstairs.
"There escaping!" I heard a officer yell. I went over to the door and closed it. Making sure the room was pitched back. They began to complain on how its dark and how I also took there flashlights. I don't want to shed blood and have Charmine to see that I killed humans in this very room and have the Vampire Council consult me for lying and for luring humans into the forest. I sighed as I let go of my plan and let the door open.
I went over to a dark corner and began to make the most scariest sound I had ever made. It sounded scratchy and horrible, like as if something was eating somebody alive. Mostly some of the officers ran out the door but one was brave enough to stay. I sighed again, I feel already tired. This is boring. I went over to him and made my eyes turn red. The mans eyes widened and I hissed at him. He ran out the door and I locked it this time.
As I made my way back downstairs, I found Charmine hugging Zayn. I huge pain of jealously hit me as I watch them. as The door shut, Charmine's eyes went over to me. She smiled at me as she ran over to me. I was surprised at first but then I instantly wrapped my arms around her. This was the feeling that I was longing for hours ago.
This incident should have never happened at all if it wasn't for my lack of confidence and leadership. I shouldn't have known that the police was looking for her, I was stupid enough to not know that she was lost and was needed to be found. Does she want to go home? Doesn't she want to forget that she ever met us. But all I know that being here in this house isn't safe anymore. The police are going to come back but with more better gear and more stronger man. But I don't care, I will sacrifice my life for her if I need to. I vowed to myself that she won't get hurt and I'm keeping it.
I knocked on the door and opened it as I gripped the cup of warm water. As I entered the room, I find Charmine sitting on the edge of the bed staring at the wall. She had no expression on here face at all, and she looked like she was in a deep thought.
"Charmine?" I called out as I walked over to her. She looked up at me without a word or a smile. I handed her the cup of warm water and sat beside her. I recieved a small thank you to her as she took a deep breath while looking inside the glass.
"What's wrong?" I asked her. She looked at me as she bit the inside of her bottom lip. She opened her mouth but nothing came out, but she tried again.
"Is it wrong, for a daughter to not see there parents even though you just discovered something that they kept from you since birth." She asked. She was devastated. I didn't know how to answer such a question. Does she want to see her parents?
"Look Charmine. I know its tough to not see your parents and I know how you feel its-"
"No you don't, its just complicated. My life is complicated." She interrupted me. Should I tell her about my experience with parents. She might not understand the concept since she is not a vampire but I'll just tell her anyways.
"Let me tell you something. When I was a kid, my parents were not really the best. They argue, fight alot, sometimes they would sleep separately as in sleeping in different rooms, different beds, or on the couch while the other one is out a the bar. I felt like it was my fault for not communicating or bonding enough with them but when they finally had the time to figure out somethings that needed to be sorted out, they told me something that made me upset, surprised. Something that I thought that I would never be placed in that category. They weren't my real parents. I was living with a couple that thought that they could raise a child and make me there own." I explained. I glanced over to her, she had tears in her eyes that were ready to fall and I couldn't stand seeing her like this.
"Your just like me." She breathed out. What does she mean. Does she have step-parents like me.
"You've never met your real parents." I questioned. She nodded as she wiped the remaining tears off her cheek.
"My other parents told me that I was left on there porch in a wooden basket. Basically I feel like that my parents don't exist anymore. If they did, they wouldn't have visited me then." She replied. I nodded. I glanced over to the clock and knew it was time to rest.
"If they aren't here in the world, then right now there in the sky looking down on you. Watching you grow." I prayed. She giggled.
"Watching me hang out with a bunch of vampires." She laughed. I laughed along with her as she went over to me and gave me a hug.
"Thank you so much Harry. For everything." She praised me. I smiled as I burried my head in the crook of her neck. Right now, being with Charmine makes me feel happy, cheerful, untroubled.
"Your welcome. I think it's time for you to go to bed." I pointed out as I removed myself from her and stood up. I went over to the closet and took out one of my softest pillows and placed it on top of my bed.
"Yeah I think so, do you mind if I could stay here for the night." She asked. Of course she can, I won't let her go outside in the night. It's too dangerous for a human like I said.
"Sure, no problem, you can stay here as long as you want. You can stay in my room." I suggested. She flinched, probably thinking that I'm going to be sleeping here with her.
"Don't worry, I'll be sleeping on the couch." I added. She gave me a small smile as I went over to the closet and got another pillow for me. As I made my way out the door, I was tapped on the shoulder by Charmine.
"Um I could sleep on the couch, it would be quite embarrassing since this is your room." She marked. I smiled at her.
"No it's alright, your the guest. Make yourself at home." I stated. She smiled as she went over and gave me a hug. I looked down at her and noticed that she has been in her clothes for a long time.
"Hold on I'll be back." I told her as I threw my pillow on the couch and ran down the hall to the laundry room. I opened the dryer and took out one of my clean shirts and ran back to my room. I handed her my shirt and she gave me a confused look.
"Um you can wear this to bed, I don't really have anything for you for the bottom. But I think the shirt is big enough to cover." I assured. She looked down at herself.
"Uh, what's wrong with my clothes." shes so cute. I smirked at her.
"Fine, I know. Anyways Goodnight." She said with a smile as she held the door.
"Goodnight Charmine." She shut the door and I made my way over to the couch. I adjusted the pillow and made myself comfortable. As I turned the lights off with my telekinesis, the lights went back on. What the hell? I sat up and found Louis walking the hall.
"Harry? Why are you sleeping on the couch?" He asked as he entered the kitchen. I rolled my eyes as I laid back down on the couch and brought my hands behind my head.
"Why are you still up?" I countered. He chuckled.
"Relax, I was just getting myself a glass of water." He replied. I began to hear the faucet open and the water running as the water comes in contact with the glass.
"Charmine is going to sleep in my room." I answered.
"Hold on, shes sleeping over?" He questioned. Does he not want Charmine to not sleep here.
"Yeah, got a problem."
"Shouldn't you be sleeping in there with her." He smirked as he began to drink his water.
"I would love to but I want her to get use to the place, not everyday she meets a bunch of vampires and then was invited to sleep over." I commented. He nodded as he placed the glass in the sink.
"You know, you treat her fairly well and I think she likes you." he recalled. I smiled at his statement.
"But one of these days, she has to go home, back to her parents." I frowned, as I turned off the lights with my telekinesis.
"I know." I muttered softly. I don't want her to leave, and I'll make sure of that.
