It was evening, and Elijah and I were extremely ravenous. Though I was ashamed to admit it, we had basically been having sex all day. And it felt weird to stop.
After a nice supper of leftover beef, Elijah excused himself to go to his tiny office in the back of the cottage. "But I wanted to take a nice beach walk tonight!" I protested.
"Babe- it won't be long. I'll be back in like twenty minutes. Keep yourself busy. There's some ice cream in the fridge."
But after he left, I was feeling curious. So, QUIETLY, I followed him to his office.
I peered around the corner. He was on the phone with an unknown person...
"Do I really have to-" His face creased in worry. I could see the fear in his eyes. But what was he afraid of? Who was he talking to?
"Yeah, yeah, I understand. It's for the best. Yes... I'll do it tonight." He sighed and hung up. I quickly made a risky dash to my room before he could turn around and see me spying on him.
I quickly mussed up the covers to as it look like I had had been laying in it. I grabbed a book and pretended to read it.
Suddenly a familiar voice approached me. "Wait, you like 'Twilight'??"
"Huh?" I said, peering at the title of the book I had picked up. "Oh, uh, no... I uh, I just knocked it over and was picking it up.
"Whose book IS this anyway?! I mean, it's not like YOU read 'Twilight'."
"No..." Elijah sighed. "I used to live here with my family. This is my older sister s book. Bit then all the kids grew up and our parents died, so we parted ways. Of course, the family will stated that I would inherit the beach house, and that's exactly what I did."
After a nice walk through the beach and up on the dunes, Eijah and I head home for some rest. We decided that because we were basically adults, high school was basically over for us. My dreams were crushed. All those years I spent preparing for a fancy college, and now look at where I had wound up!
Oh well... at least I would always have Elijah.
I tossed and turned in bed- the waves were soothing and calm, but for some reason I felt restless. I turned over to face my boyfriend and opened my eyes and whispered, "Wanna go all the way tonight, baby? I can't sleep, and-"
But he wasnt there.
I sat up. "Oh crap-- Elijah?? Where are you...!"
