Harry and I got called out of school an hour into the day. When we arrived to the house, Anne, Gemma, an another man were there.
"Is there someway we can adopt her so she doesn't have to go to foster care."
"Yes. You'll have to fill out papers."
Wait they were adopting me? That means I have a crush on my foster brother? Who's 4 years older than me. I'm positive this isn't right. But that also means I might have to reveal my identity to them.
"Ash, you're a vampire?" Gemma runs up to me.
I nod slightly.
"Don't worry I'll pretend I don't know."
"Who told you?"
"The officers were talking and I heard them."
"It's kinda cool though. My soon-to-be foster sister is a vampire."
"Guess who's back!" I hear a whisper from far away. I look around to see where it's coming from. The voice, its overly familiar.
"Run!" I yell. Harry does and he pulls a questioning Gemma with him.
"I told you I'd be back baby."
"Who are you?"
"That's for me to know and you to find out." A chuckle escapes from his hidden lips.
"What do you want?!"
"Oh babe, don't act you don't know."
Everyone had stopped what they were doing and was watching.
"Now where is your boyfriend?"
"I don't have one. And even if I did, I sure wouldn't tell a son of a bitch like you."
"Did you just call me a bitch?" his eyes showed me was smirking.
"So what is I did?" I asked with courage and confidence loaded in my voice.
"You shouldn't have." The man in black jumped on me, knocking me to the ground. "Little bitches like you deserve punishments."
"Oh my God, I'm so scared." I said sarcastically.
"You better be." He smirked. I guess he didn't catch my sarcasm. Good.
His long fingernails dug into my skin on my arms. Leaving white bruises.
He dropped my arms when I winced in pain and dug his finger nails into my neck. I felt weak on the concrete and I felt his weight lift off my body.
"I can't kill you just yet baby. Not before I kill everyone you love." he laughed evilly. "I'll be-" I blacked out.
Ash laid on the concrete with her arms resting above her head. I don't quite know how this vampire stuff works, but I know for sure she's not dead.
I move her hair off her pale face and pick her up bridal style.
Damn, she's so light......and so beautiful. Our kids will be just as beautifu- Harry stop thinking like that. She's going to be your foster sister.
I can't help it.
The officers and my Mum are about to leave, and Dad left for work a while ago.
"Mum, I'm taking Ash back to our house."
"Alright dear. Robin and I will be at the police station signing adoption papers."
"But didn't dad leave?"
"He's coming back, he just left for a few minutes."
"Oh, alright. Bye Mum."
I saw Gemma flirting with Officer Luke.
"Gem, you coming with me?"
"Yeah." I put Ash in the backseat of my car, and fastened her seat belt.
The drive to our house was quiet, mainly because Gemma was texting someone on her phone, and I was focused on driving.
Once we reached the house, I parked in the driveway, and I carried Ashlynn to my room, placing her on the bed.
"You're so brave love." I kissed her on the corner of her mouth, expecting some magical reaction. Just kidding, this isn't the movies where the true loves kiss can do anything. But I hope she wakes up soon.
"You really like her don't you?" Gemma asks placing a hand on my back, and sitting next to me.
"Way to much." I admit. "My heart breaks every time she's talking to another boy, when she's crying, and even when some one hurts her. My feelings are so strong for her."
"Then tell her you like her."
"But she's going to be my foster sister. Dad wouldn't accept me dating my foster sister, and I'm not sure about Mum. Also what if she finds it weird that her foster brother asked her out."
"I think she likes you too."
"She does....I think."
"Tell her your feelings, but not too soon, and definitely not straight forward."
" Um, I don't know.....maybe.....to be honest I have no idea." She shrugged.
"Thank you for so much help." I laugh.
"You're welcome!" She pats my head, before getting up. "Just kidding, I'll think of what you can do."
"Alright." I take Ash's hand in mine. "I feel so bad for her."
"I know...... me too."
"She gets hurt for us, trying to protect everything she loves. I feel terrible. First she lost her parents a while ago, then she found them, and them lost them again for good, and there are evil creatures after her, and......there's so much going on in her 14 years of life so far. I wish I could protect her some how, because she always protects me." Ash's fingers grabs a hold of my hand. I think regained conscience.
"You do protect me Harry." She smiles weakly. "If it wasn't for you, I could be dead right now, or be taken into hostage."
"What do you mean?" She sits up, and holds my hands.
"Last night, you held me when I was scared. You comforted me when I was crying. You protected me from all my fears. You were there, and you made me feel better." She smiled reassuringly. "Thank You." She kissed my cheek. Only my cheek, and I felt as if I was in heaven.
"You're the best friend I can ever have." She engulfed me into a huge hug, and I fell back wards on top of the bed. Her arms were around my neck and she was on top of me, giggling. She's so cute. Gemma was watching everything in amusement and a huge smirk on her face.
I was overwhelmed at how cute she was, and took my chance of connecting our lips together. She froze for a second but then kissed back.
