"This weekend we will go to the house and paint pictures again."
I looked at Louis and smiled weakly.
"To that house?"
He nodded and kissed my neck.
"Yes, Niall has found a girl."
Louis laughed a little bit and ate the sandwich.
"Niall has a girl and he wants to make her to one of us."
I just stared at Louis. Would they again make a girl into a vampire?
"Does she know?"
He laughed and shook his head.
"No, it will be like when you became a vampire and we'll get her in the gang."
"Louis, are you sure you shouldn't give her the choice?"
He didn't understand the problem. I was almost angry at him.
"You have to tell her, or I'll do it."
Louis looked into my eyes and he became serious. He hesitated and he understood that I was serious.
"But we can't tell. It destroys half the fun?"
"Lou, I wished you had asked me. I got no choice, and why can't you just tell the truth?"
"Hey, we want to make you a vampire." He shook his head. "Everyone's going to say no and .."
I interrupted him.
"But honesty is better than forcing the girl in this life."
Louis hesitated again.
"Didn't you wanna join us?"
I didn't know if I would be honest.
"You could have given me the choice?"
Louis avoided my gaze and looked down at the floor.
"Honey, you had said no?"
I didn't want to force a new girl into their community.
"I don't know what I had answered, but it would have been more honest than to just bite me."
Louis came up to me and took my face between his hands.
"Honestly!" he whispered. "Had you said yes?"
I hesitated and it was enough. He released me and looked generally disappointed.
"So you hadn't said yes to me?"
"I don't know."
When we arrived at the mansion, I saw a small blond girl. She was unsure and I knew so well her feelings. She stayed close to Niall and he seemed proud of her. Louis held my hand tightly and gave me a warning glance.
"Don't say anything!" he whispered. "I'll talk to the others and in the meantime you are just quiet."
I nodded. I followed him up to the girl and Niall smiled directly towards us.
"This is Sam and she lives next door to me."
I swallowed and smiled at her.
"Hi, I'm Emma."
Sam nodded and blushed. She greeted everyone and seemed unsure. I suffered and I just wanted to scream out straight.
"Can't Emma take her to the room?" Louis got out and looked pointedly at me. "I need to talk to the guys."
I nodded. I smiled at him and gave him a quick kiss.
"I'll be quiet."
Louis was grateful and made sure that Sam and I got all her bags.
I showed Sam up to my old room, the room that Louis had once taken me to.
"You will thrive." I was unsure of myself. Sam peered into the room and then looked indictment count me.
"Niall told that you have just been elected in their community?"
I laughed a little bit.
"No, it would be wrong to say that I was elected?"
She came into the room and smiled weakly.
"He said you are a good role model and I can learn a lot from you."
I was startled and just stared at her. Why did Niall say such words? I wasn't a good role model and if I had my way, I would take her away from the place.
"What did he more say?"
Sam smiled weakly and sat down on the bed.
"He just told me that you're a great girl."
I chose not to snoop more in the subject. I opened the closet.
"You can hang the clothes here."
She nodded slightly and looked at me again.
"So you and Louis are a couple?"
I nodded and smiled at her.
"Yes, we live together."
She nodded and I knew she had more questions.
"I was also new for some time ago." I answered honestly. "Just be yourself and don't have to worry about what everyone else says. Niall's a good guy."
"He said they had nude painting."
"Yes, if they ask if you want to set up, you say no."
She nodded and sucked in every word.
Niall appeared at the door and he didn't look happy.
"Emma, I want to talk to you."
I had expected that he wouldn't be happy. I nodded and gave Sam one last look.
"See you way around the house if you want."
She nodded and smiled at Niall. He gave her a quick smile and then pulled me away from the room. He pulled me out of the yard and away from the house.
"So you want to tell her about the plans?"
I grabbed me my arm and nodded cold towards him.
"It's not right to lie."
He looked at me and he wasn't happy.
"Emma, everyone says no as soon as you give them the choice."
I shook the head.
"Do you love her, she will say yes."
He stood close to me and looked straight into my eyes.
"Neither you nor I had said yes?"
I gulped and agreed. I knew what he meant and he knew I wanted to have a chance to say no.
"You don't have to let her end up in the same situation?"
Niall sighed and took my face between his hands. He looked straight into my eyes.
"Do you know why Louis brought you here the very first time?"
"Yes, to make me a vampire?"
Niall shook his head and he didn't let go of my face.
"No, because we could all choose you. I wanted you, but at the last second, he said that you were his. I wanted to bite you the very first evening and make you mine, but he hesitated. I got no chance."
Any thoughts spinning around in my head.
"What do you mean?"
Niall dropped my face and he looked sad. He sighed and hesitated.
"Louis took with you so that we would play with you. He had no intention to make you a vampire from the beginning, and all were able to take you. Then he changed his mind and you know the rest."
I backed off.
"So he didn't love me?"
"I'm sorry Emma, but no. He just wanted to have fun and play a little."
My whole world collapsed. I just stared at Niall and I didn't get out of me a single word.
"You were like a toy." Niall whispered uncertainly. "I was so mad at him and I just wanted that you wouldn't suffer. Which is why I gave you blood, that night when he would make you a vampire. Louis loved the idea of taking your virginity and get you to be a crazy vampire. He had no thought or emotion that you felt something for him."
I backed off.
"So everything is a lie?"
Niall smiled weakly.
"No, I still love you..."
I looked over at the house and I saw Louis come out the door. He understood immediately that I knew the truth and he was standing still.
"Damn,,,," I hissed and looked at Niall again. "So I'm just a thing for him? "
Niall didn't respond. He was unsure and looked towards Louis.
"He hears us."
I didn't care.
"He doesn't love me and everything is a lie." I looked over at Louis. "He must hear the truth and I don't want to live with him anymore."
