“Everything’s energy,” I whispered to myself softly and nervously. I was standing right at the end of the small bridge that led just to the first deep section of the ocean. I turned back, seeing small sailor boats floating helplessly as they were attached with a thick piece of rope, tied to a hob on the sea defense wall. I shivered slowly as the ice cold wind flew around me, and I looked back to the moonlit ocean again. I took one small step, and focused on the full moon ahead of me.
“Really… You’re going to commit suicide Kara Montez?” A deep, drawing male’s voice snorted from behind, I recognized that voice. I spun around again, facing Adrian Luckhurst who was dressed in a black suit. He had his arms folded, and his eyes were narrowed down a little to see my eyes. We were five inches apart, and it still felt cold and uncomfortable.
“So what? I can’t die, so I might be taking a midnight swim.” I protested back, shaking my black curly hair out of my face. Adrian slightly laughed, and walked slightly closer to me- and I backed up any time in the same pace he did.
“Then why are you still acting human?” He questioned, sounding as if I was an imbecile, and he was the smart one. Instead of my squabbling, I lifted up my foot slightly and tripped, in a blink of an eye, Adrian’s arms were cradling my back for safety- his dark golden brown eyes fixed on mine, his pale hands felt cold- cold enough that I can feel the iciness through my thin clothing. I gulped nervously, his red lips slightly parted.
“Don’t be foolish,” He said, slowly releasing me to get back into my standing position. I wrapped my arms around my chest, feeling the awkward tension in the air. Adrian looked worried for me, but ever since we met- we had been sworn enemies. I shuddered again at the thought, Adrian smiled at me.
“We may be sworn enemies, still doesn't mean I care about you.” He pointed out, and folded his arms again. I stared at him, and I didn't say anything. I looked back at the ocean still shocked that he was reading my thoughts, I spun around to say something, and he had vanished completely. I gulped slowly again, and walked back to my parents’ house. I didn't get what Adrian meant, how can we be enemies- but still care for each other? We’re not exactly in love with each other, so I honestly don’t see the point of caring for each other. He saved me, when he knew I was immortal- as if he was the one being human again.
It was a fifteen minute walk to my parents’ house, and nothing interesting happened on the way. The house hadn't changed since I was five, the house had been painted marble white, and the windows were French, the grass was bright green- and not a single patch of dirt in place, there had been a cobblestone driveway for the family Black Mercedes to rest on, and a pile of golden crispy leaves placed to the nearest oak tree. My mother was staring out the window, waiting for my arrival home, her eyes were dark brown, and her honey blonde wavy hair suited her mothering figure and slightly tanned skin. I realized she was holding the cream curtain’s to see any sight that she could. As soon as she caught me looking at her, she ran to open the double white doors for me.
“Where the hell have you been? It’s midnight.” She demanded for an answer as she struck a pose. I folded my arms and sighed frustratingly.
“Adrian had called, he said that you were trying to… trying to jump of the small bridge in the harbor.” She explained of why she was angry at me. She doesn't know I’m not exactly human, she didn't even know that I practice magic in my bedroom- she didn't know I couldn't die. I shrugged and shook my head.
“He’s a liar mum, do you really believe him? I was just standing at the end of the bridge to watch the moon,” I lied; I didn’t exactly want to be immortal- what’s the whole point of living for eternity? I just didn’t get the point. Mum studied my facial expression for a moment.
“Really, is that what you did?” She tested me, as if she didn’t believe me. I nodded at her, and shrugged.
“Yes mother, do I really need to write it down for you?” I snapped, and she stepped backwards a little.
“Just, get dinner and go to your room-” She trailed off and looked towards the distance, and I followed her gaze and Adrian was walking towards our drive. I folded my arms at him, and grimaced.
“I’m sorry for any inconvenient Mrs Mortez- but it really did look like she was going to commit suicide, and I startled her, and she almost slipped. Luckily I saved her,” Adrian explained before my mum could shoot him off, she focused her gaze on me again, whilst she was trying to look at Adrian, his clothes were different, but still black. His reddish golden brown hair was spiked up at the front, he wore a black jumper and coat as if he thought it was cold, and black skinny jeans. I blinked in surprise, and nodded back at mum in agreement.
“Go to your room, now.” She demanded, she sounded cold-hearted at this point, still in shock; I pulled myself together and ran up quickly to my bedroom. Five minutes later, I heard the grand doors slam tight shut, and not once did my mum come in to scowl or console me. I sat there on my bed practically all night; I was reading a Shakespeare’s play called Macbeth for English at school tomorrow. I was starting to just drift off to sleep slowly and happily until torrential rain came whacking violently at my windows. I repositioned myself to the double French windows, and in the corner was a black muscular figure in the corner- and I instantly knew that was Adrian.
I opened my mouth to say something, but not surprisingly, he vanished. I sighed in annoyance at the empty corner, and switched of my bedside lamp- I tried to get to sleep.
