"What happened to Sam?"
Niall lay down beside me on the bed and he looked surprised. Much like if he was amazed that I wondered.
"I'm just saying ..." I hesitated. "He just disappeared?"
Niall smiled a little bit. He lay down next to me and he let his hand landing on my stomach. He always felt so that the baby was moving and he was many times more worried than me.
"He's just gone."
"He just disappeared?"
Niall sighed and he looked into my eyes.
"Do you really want to know?"
I didn't know if I wanted to, but I was curious and I had sometimes thought about that part. Niall didn't talk often about Sam.
He laughed a little bit and he let his hand rub my belly.
"He's dead, darling." he whispered the words out. "We cut off his head, and we placed the pieces in two different places."
"You know why I killed him?"
I smiled a little bit.
"No, I was wondering why you had to split the body?"
Niall didn't like the subject. Yet I knew that he dared to tell me everything. I was one of them and I managed the truth, more than many others.
"You can just kill a vampire by beheading, but if you bury the pieces together, the body will be whole again and the vampire comes to life."
I didn't know that you could kill a vampire, but somewhere inside me, I wasn't surprised.
"So he's split in earnest?"
"The body is located in China and head somewhere in Sweden."
Niall felt kicks in the stomach and he looked down at his hand, which was resting against my skin.
"He kicks!" he exclaimed, and I knew that we wouldn't talk about Sam more times. Maybe it's just as good to put him behind us?
Niall laughed and he nodded. He leaned forward and he put his ear against my belly.
"Yes, I'm sure it's a he."
"How can you be so sure?"
He smiled and he raised his head.
"A girl isn't such a maniac in a stomach?" He kissed me quickly. "I'm sure this is a he."
Simon sighed a little bit. I put on my clothes and I realized that something wasn't right. I sat next to him and then I noticed that he was thinking.
"It's okay!" he said then, and he looked at me. "It's nothing to worry about."
I just had to ask. Simon smiled a little bit and he leaned back in his chair.
"It seems as if you are going to give birth earlier than expected."
He looked down at the computer, as was standing in front of him on the table. I knew he looked at all of my data.
"Sometimes vampires have a child that's unique. We can say that the child is a blend between two worlds."
I understood nothing. Simon sighed a little bit and he looked at me again.
"The baby in your belly isn't an ordinary person and it's not a vampire. You carry on a child who's both."
Okay, I got scared.
"And that means?"
He smiled a little bit.
"That child will more quickly become adulthood and all it takes is a little blood, so he or she will become one of us."
I did not like the idea.
"You can't cure the child?"
Simon shook his head quickly.
"But we need to take some corrective action." the words cut straight to my heart. "The child can't stay with us. There's a risk to exposing your child to blood, when we know that it will affect."
Niall just stared at me. He thought I was lying, but then he saw that it was the truth. We couldn't keep our children, not when we were vampires.
"But I..." he almost started crying, but he was also angry. "Simon can't force us."
I had been given all the information I needed at the hospital. I knew what Simon did and he just meant well.
"We must!" I whispered. "For the child's sake!"
Niall went back and forth across the floor. I knew what he felt. This wasn't what we had planned and even I felt pain at not being able to take care of our own little child.
"I need to talk to Liam!" exclaimed Niall. I shook my head and I went up to him. I took his face between my hands and I tried to smile.
"He can't help us."
Word quickly spread and everyone started talking about the baby in my belly. I felt left out, left behind, because no one seemed to dare to talk to me. Perrie was the only one who seemed to care, but she was a little afraid of me.
"Is it a disease?" she asked. I sighed and I shook my head.
"No, there's nothing that will infect you."
She puffed out and she sat down on the couch, with a distance from me.
"So you will leave..." she didn't finish the sentence, and I realized that she didn't know what she would say.
"Yes!" I whispered. "For the child's sake. Simon said that the conditions are much better if we leave her or him to normal people."
"But it's your baby?"
"But the child must also be able to live a normal life?"
