"No! nobody was ever supposed to find out!" I come crashing to my knees and burst into tears as the meaning of the words of this human finally hit me. I look at him with my pained eyes... "You cannot tell anyone... ever." He shakes his head and walks over to me. I somehow feel like I can trust him.... No! You can never trust a human! They are selfish, cruel, despicable creatures! But... maybe, he's different.

Annabel Creasure is different than most people. Everybody believes she's a freak. Everyone but one. Alexander Shade sees something in her that he just can't shake. Will the secrets of Annabel ruin everything, or will it only bring them together?


3. 3.

A smile comes upon my face as I listen to the soft whispers of the wind. Nothing could be more perfect at this one moment. I lay on the ground in the middle of this wonderfully beautiful field. I look to my right and see Alex. I smile again as I see him looking at the sky. I can't help but feeling a little bit in love with him. He's so comforting and so different than everyone else in this dry, messed up town. It's not as much as the adults, but the teenagers. They are absolutely everything I hate about the mortals of this world. Cruel, conceited, rude, abusive to the mind... just plain awful.

I take a sigh of relief and close my eyes. I drifted off into a pleasant state of just nearly sleep. I feel relaxed and at ease. When I open my eyes, I see Alex sitting up looking over me smiling. I look up and smile back. "Why are you so happy?" I ask. "Because I have everything I have ever wanted." I thought for a moment, "And what might that be?" He chuckled softly..." You." I smiled slightly to myself, then I leaned in and kissed him.

"I love you." He said. I gasped opening my eyes. I looked away from him. "What's wrong?" He asked upset. I started getting up "I- I cant" My voice was uneasy threatening to crack at any moment and break down the wall of tears. I started to walk away, but I felt a soft hand on my shoulder stop me. "Tell me." I looked at him with teary eyes. "You don't love me." He spoke softly, it seemed more like a question rather than a statement. "No! That's not it at all." I stopped the thought from seeping into his mind any longer. "Alex, you are one of the best things in my life..." He looked confused. "But?" I looked down and whispered. "I shouldn't have done this." I couldn't look at him. For three weeks I let this go on. That is far too long. I should have stopped this at the very beginning, I let my emotions take control... I was wrong.

"I have no regrets, Annabel." He said smiling at me talking in a reassuring voice. "But I do." I forced the words out. "I-I don't understand..." His voice was unsteady again. "I regret only one thing, and that's letting this go on. Alex, It's not because I'm not crazy about you, because I am. That's why I regret it. I regret being with you because I care about you. I did something selfish and wrong.  I'm sorry." I started to walk away again with tears streaming down my cheek. They felt hot against my Ice cold skin.

"Annabel, stop!" He cried. I turned around, "The only wrong thing you can do..." He took a deep breath. "Is walk out of here, away from me and believe that I'll let go that easy." I gazed into his eyes for what might me the last time. "You don't understand how dangerous this is for you." He gave me a half smile. "Don't you get it? I don't care how dangerous it is for me, I will do anything for you. I will do anything to be with you." I smile a teary smile as he walked over to me. He was inches away from me, our noses almost touching. "I can make it in your world." He whispered. "You are my world." I thought about the dangers as we kissed. I am being selfish. But, somehow it just feels too right to let go of.  "Come to my house, I want you to meet your first obstacle." He smiled lightly. "And what is that obstacle?" I giggled. "My father."



As we got to my house I prepared myself for the worst night of my life. I walked inside first, examining my own house most likely more than he was. Everything was neat so I mentally thanked my father for cleaning up. "Go sit on the couch," I whispered to Alex. He just nodded and walked over.

I made my way to the kitchen where my father was. I noticed that he was doing bills. You would think that someone with powers wouldn't have to deal with things like bills. "Dad?" He looked up from his work. "Annabel? Is something wrong?" I smiled. "No," well, not yet. "quite the opposite actually. I have someone you need to meet." He gave me a funny look. "Okay then." He kindly agreed and followed me into the living room. His face automatically faded into shock when he saw Alexander. I ignored it and went over to sit next to Alex, I grabbed his hand and squeezed it tight. "Dad, this is Alex. My boyfriend." I looked over to him giving him a look saying 'I'm so sorry' he just gave me a shrug saying it's okay. "How long have you been together?" My dad asked without even saying 'hello'. "About three weeks." Alexander asked. "What do you know about us?" He asked digging deeper.

 "I know that there are others, and that it is very dangerous for me to be with your daughter. But I would like you to know that I don't care. So many times has Annabel told me that this wasn't right, but I never gave up on her. I would never tell anyone, I know that it would ruin everything that you have worked to keep covered your entire life. I would never to that to you or your daughter. Not for the life of me. And I realize that may be the case." My eyes started to water as he talked. "Annabel, can I talk to you for a minute in the kitchen?" My father didn't even acknowledge anything that Alexander said, I was starting to get frustrated. I let go of his hand and walked out behind my father.

"Annabel, have you given any thought to what might happen if you two end the relation ship. Mortals are very emotional, can we trust him to keep our secret?" I was now very irritated by him, although I did understand his concerns. I have had the same since the beginning. "Well, it looks like we have no other choice do we? We'll just have to trust that he is the same person I know he is. I believe in him dad, and I think you should too." With that I walked away.

I sat down next to Alex and didn't say a word. Just then my dad walked in. "Alexander?" We both looked up at the same time. "Yes sir?" My father smiled "I give you my trust, and I don't give it out willy-nilly. So honor it. And don't make me regret it. Take care of my daughter like I know she will for you. She trusts you a lot you know." Just then Alex looked at me. I smiled, turning a little bit pink. He smiled at me back and took hold of my hand. "I know sir, thank you. I won't make you regret it." "I know you wont." Just before he completely left the room he turned back. "And Alex?" He asked. "Yes, sir?" I love how he is so polite. "Don't ever call me sir again, call me Nathan." And with that he walked out of the room.

I felt Alexander's lips upon mine again. "Everything is going to be fine." He assured me. I sighed, "I hope so." He then chuckled a little bit. "You hope so?" He asked me. "Well that doesn't sound too perky!" I smiled and then leaned in closer so our foreheads were touching. He grabbed both of my hands and whispered to me. "You may hope so, but I know so." He then kissed the tip of my nose causing me to laugh. "Now there's that smile I love so much." He told me. "Shut up!" I yelled playfully.

Maybe he was right... maybe everything was going to be fine.
