I was waiting at the side of the restaurant for Niall as he ordered some Buffalo chicken wings and they sounded tasty. Do you know how long I have ate good food? Pretty long. But that isn't the case right now. I just don't know how to show up to my parents and explain. I just couldn't tell them that I got lost in a forest and met some vampires who are now my friends. And What about school, I probably lost that scholarship for achievement in arts that I was aiming for this year. Once I had spotted Niall walking over to me, I immediately removed myself from the wall and approached him.
"Ready?" he asked me. I nodded as I followed him out the door. As we were walking back to the forest, I started to think about home. Is the forest my home now or am I still just going back to visit my new friends. I had my arms crossed in front of my chest and I stared at the ground. I began to see red and blue lights flashing nearby. Niall looked over to me. Is that the police?
"Charmine. Over here." Niall whispered to me as he ran over to the side of the forest and crouched down behind a pack of bushes and shrubs. The police are right there in the front of the forest.
"What's going on?" I whispered back to him. He shook his head slowly as he still kept his eyes at the police officers with flashlights in there hands.
"I don't know. But I think I can find out." He suggested. I watched him close his eyes and bring his index finger on the side of his head. I didn't know what he was doing but all of a sudden, a voice came into my head.
The girl must be here. If her parents said that she went out in the morning to do some research at the library for some school project, and the librarian said that she left the library at the peek of midnight then she could have been somewhere here. We found a backpack and a purple cased cellphone trailing into the forest. She must have got lost in there.
"There looking for me Niall." He peered over to me with his eyes widened. The police had found my backpack and my phone. He lowered his index finger and glanced over to the police.
"How did you know? I haven't even read there minds yet." He said. I shook my head as I also eyed the police who were now entering the forest.
"I don't know, I had a feeling I guess. But that doesn't matter. We should warn the others." I reminded.
"Oh yeah, this is code red. Something we prepared for back then. Come on, I know a short cut." I nodded and I followed him over to the other side of the forest. We began to run in a rocky path, trying to dodge all of the beams of light from the officers flashlights. Once we had made it to the house, I just ran inside.
"You guys. The police just entered the forest and they are trying to look for me." I basically yelled out. I looked around, all of them had a surprised face on. I could feel Niall's arm brushing on mine. Liam went over to the door and opened it, I watched him glance outside.
"This is code red guys. Niall could you lead everybody to the bunker in the basement." Liam said as he closed the door and went over to his lab and started to type something on his keyboard.
"Sure. Louis, go get the two girls in the dungeon." Niall ordered. Louis nodded and ran down the hall. What two girls? Nobody haven't told me anything about girls in a dungeon, but it doesn't really matter. I looked around trying to find a familiar face but failed too.
"Charmine, come on." Zayn assured. He placed his hand on my back as he began to lead me down the hall. I peered over to the door and waited for an arrival from somebody. When there wasn't any luck, I began to panic.
"Zayn, wheres Harry?" I asked. Zayn looked down at me and parted his lips. He looked like he wanted to tell me but couldn't. He sucked in a breath.
"He went outside to do a check on the forest." He explained. No, Harry doesn't know. I began to run out the door into the forest.
"Charmine, No!" I heard Zayn yell, until his voice became into a fade. I continued to run into the forest, trying to avoid the police officers.
"Harry." I whispered, just in case the police officers hear. Everything was pitch black and I blame myself for not bringing a flashlight. I feel like I was repeating history.
"Harry!" I called out a bit louder. I instantly regretted it until I heard a voice call out.
"Who's out there!" A flashlight began to beam out at me until I was pulled back into the darkness. I felt a pair of arms around me and a husky voice reminding me to 'shh'. I looked behind finding the face that I was looking for.
"Harry." I whispered, repeating his name again. He smiled at me. I wanted to hug him but I couldn't. One movement means the Police would check here. I began to shiver. I just noticed we were in a bush. I began to hear footsteps approaching. A beam of light was on the soil which means that there right beside us. I don't even know why I'm hiding, do I even want to go home? There here to try to find me, as in, here to help me. I've been trying to find help and to get home for days but I don't know why I just don't feel like going home anymore.
I miss my parents. They were the one who raised me to be the best person I can be. I felt a tear fall down on my cheek. I tried not to cry but a whimper escaped from my mouth. Harry did the right thing to place his hand on my mouth as I placed both of my small hands on top of his. I could feel Harry moving closer to me, trying to embrace me.
"Are you sure, you saw something?!" A low voice called out.
"Yeah. I'm sure but it's probably a raccoon." another voice replied. I listened to them walk away, along with the beam of light as it slowly fades. Darkness surrounded us again. Everything was quiet, only the sounds of my breathing and his.
"I think there gone." Harry whispered as he slowly stood up, checking to see if the coast is clear. I didn't want to go back, or do I. Harry offered me a hand, I slowly took and and dusted myself.
"Come on, lets go back to the others." He suggested. I nodded. He then looked at me, his eyes looking up and down on me.
"Harry...." I whined. trying to hide myself. He chuckled a bit, trying not to be loud.
"Your so innocent. It's cute." He smiled. I couldn't help but smile back. I watched him approach me and I started to get scared. Does innocent and cute mean tasty and delicious in vampire? He wrapped his arms on the back of my thighs and brought me up in to his arms. I instantly wrapped my arms around his neck, but i never thought of doing it.
"Harry, what are you doing?" I whined in a little whisper. He chuckled again, showing his cute dimples.
"This is faster if I carry you." He explained. Oh no, are we going to fly. Is that what vampires do. Please don't turn into a bat.
"Please don't tell me were going to fly." I squeaked. He laughed again and shook his head.
"Ready?" So we are. I hesitantly closed my eyes and burried my head into the crook of Harry's neck. I felt a slight breeze but it soon stopped.
"You can open your eyes now." I could sense that he is smirking right now. But still I don't want to. What if we are in the air? I'm afraid of heights and always will.
"I don't want to." I whimpered. I heard a sigh as I could feel his legs moving. I started to hear something as if we were on wood and a loud thud of a door closed.
"Now do you want to open your eyes. I promise, its safe." He vowed. I could feel him looking at me. I parted my lips but another voice came out.
"And no were not in the sky?" he added.
"I wasn't going to say that." I scold him. He laughed. His laugh was more smooth and pure then before. I slowly opened my eyes finding myself in a lit area. I looked around, are we at the basement. I looked over to Harry and down onto his arms.
"Could you?" I asked. He shook his head.
"No, I like carrying you." He volunteered. I shook my head, repeating what he did seconds ago but with a pouting face.
"Please." I asked one more time. He sighed.
"Fine." He then loosed his arms and guided me back onto the ground. When I touched the ground, I found ourselves in front of a metal door. I placed my hand on it and turn the knob, revealing a brighter room filled with the others. I walked in just making sure that I'm familiar with the room. Everybody stopped talking and looked at Harry and I. Then they began to clap. I didn't know why but I felt proud of myself.
"I thought you were a goner when you ran out the door, but I guess you have the guts to find Harry and come back alive." Louis speculated. Zayn nudged his side making Louis flinch. I smiled as I looked over to Harry. Everybody went back to there talkative side while I just stood there in the middle of the room. Harry walked up to me and whispered
"You ran out the door to find me?" I turned my body to face him with a smile on my face. I nodded.
"I couldn't leave my best friend out there without him knowing." I stated. He frowned a bit but smiled again. Was it wrong to say that he was my best friend.
"So I'm your best friend now?" I laughed.
"Don't push it. I'm still new to this." I punched his shoulder playfully. He gave me a pouting face and I laughed again.
"You mean you never had a best friend before." He questioned. I nodded as he laughed.
"Hey, since your my first best friend, your special so don't screw it up." I smiled shyly. He smiled again as he wrapped his arms around my torso. His minty scent was all I could smell right now. I don't know if I was ready to believe in love, like I said, I don't believe in love. But this wasn't love at all what I was feeling for Harry, it was lust and that I believe in. I began to hear sounds and I was frightened. Something was near.
Over here. Let's check downstairs.
I began to hear something creaking a flashlight clicking on and off. I stared at the door. There here.
"Harry. There near." I pulled his shirt to get his attention. He looked worried and concerned.
"Charmine, what's wrong." He asked. I kept my eyes on the door and I was afraid to look away. Silence was all that came in the room so that means everybody stopped talking and was watching me right now.
"Harry. There here inside the house. I can hear them." I whimpered. I watched Harry stop and look at the ground.
"Harry, shes right. There upstairs." Zayn yelled. I looked over to Zayn. He nodded to me, trying to be calm.
These beds look like they have been used not to long ago. Somebody's in here.
Hello! Anybody in here.
"Louis, Zayn, Niall, come with me. Lillia, your in charge of Charmine and the two girls." Harry ordered as they nodded. I glanced over to the two girls that Harry mentioned, they were dirty, their clothes was torn, but I had to admit, they are beautiful. I watched Louis, Zayn, Niall, and Harry leave. Harry was the last one out the door so I flashed him a smile as he closed the door. I just couldn't believe that everybody is riskng there lives because of me. Shouldn't I go up to the police men and ask them to bring me home.
I sat on the couch, trying to think everything through, but these voices kept coming into my head. Are they thoughts that suddenly come true, or was my hearing kinda going extreme.
Who's goes there! Show yourself. Boys. I think theres somebody over here.
Over there. He's got a knife. Fire!
I began to hear shooting. I was extremely scared, I looked over to Lillia who also has the same face expression as me. After one last shot, I was relieved, until a voice popped up into my head.
We got him boys.
