There I was, sitting under a tree, in LA, at 8:00 pm. I have blonde hair, with purple and blue on the ends. I ran away from home. Wait…. Let me start from earlier today.
I ran out of the house holding my cheek, my father had hit me. He was never always abusive, just when he was drunk. Which he was today….. I ran and ran I didn’t know where I was going, just anywhere to get away from him. I love my dad so much, but I had to go it just wasn’t safe.
I’m 17 years old. My mom died three years ago. It was hard, but I got through it.
Okay, back to the present! I was sitting under a tree listening to music and reading a book on my iPhone. I was reading Twilight. The first one. It is an awesome book. But, if I was Bella I would run. I know vampires aren’t real, but they still freak me out. I was so into the book and the music I didn’t realize it was already 11:00 pm. I stopped reading but kept the music on, with one ear bud out so I could hear what was going on around me. I heard footsteps, so I tried to stay hidden.
I was walking down the street at 11:00 pm and heard music, but very quiet. Who is out and is listening to music this late at night? I realized the music was coming from behind the tree. I sat down on the bench next to the tree.
“You know, you really shouldn’t be out this late at night.” I said.
“I know.” She said
I decided I wanted to meet this girl, so I said, “Why don’t you come over here and sit by me?”
“okay.” She replied. She sat at the other end of the bench, obviously trying to stay away from me.
“Come on, I don’t bite.” I said, but that was a total lie. Did I forget to mention I’m a vampire? Well I am.
“Okay, and by the way, my name’s Carly.” She said and scooted over a bit.
“So what are you doing out this late at night?” I asked, usually the only ‘people’ out are vampires. This is the only time of day we can be ourselves.
“I ran away from home….” She said quietly but loud enough for me to hear her.
“Oh.” Was all I could manage to say. When I figured out what to say I said “Do you mind telling me why?”
She seemed to get tense…..
“If you don’t feel comfortable telling me, I’m fine with that.” I said.
“Okay, thank you.”
“Do you need a place to stay? I mean you could stay with me…. If you want to.” I said. She started to smile; gosh I loved it when she smiled! What are you saying Ross?!? You can’t fall in love with her, she was a mortal and you were a vampire…. Plus you just met her!!
“I would love that, but you don’t have to.” She said, but I could tell she wanted to.
“Please!! I know we just met and all, but please!!” I begged, biting my lip.
“Okay fine, but only for a few days. By the way what’s your name, you never told me?” She asked.
