My jaw was set in place and my eyes burned furiously at the man in front of me. I could imagine her frustration and anger boiling over until she snapped. as soft as she is. I know you probably hate me for leaving you and your mother when you were so young. but it‟s for her own good.Beep… “Hey. I ran my fingers through my hair. I had to leave.” The dial tone rang audibly through the quiet room. Kris. and don‟t even look at me. Me. don‟t talk to me. . But if I were in shoes. we‟re through. Don‟t call me. “Kris. Goodbye Kris. Here‟s what. tugging and pulling at a fistful of strands and sighed. you‟ve been ignoring me. wishing that she had never even met me.

I want my old life back. But that all vanished when a small smile crept across his face. but he never came back. and the fact that I was slowly changing into something I wasn‟t used to. Making it even more clear to myself that I had to stay away from Tiya. It‟s not even like I could find time to be with her. I had a beautiful girlfriend and I was liked by almost everyone. I was on the soccer team. I would just love to wake up one day and have the life that I once had. And if that wasn‟t bad enough. „used to what I was yet‟? Are you trying to tell me you weren‟t used to being a man. that‟s when I started to freak out. no matter how much I tried to wear myself out and I could survive on a glass of water for more than two weeks.

He smiled at me once more and rose fluidly out of the chair. “That. this isn‟t Twilight. Now.” Then just like in one of those cheesy horror movies. . his face sorrowful and stressed. this all sounds like a load of crap. but right now. I even started to break things unintentionally in the house. I never got tired. Do you think it was easy to become something not heard of many times before. “Are you going to tell me you‟re a vampire next? Because honestly. I‟m always being stared at. something that no one was yet used to?” I raised a brow at him and tilted my head to the side. I had no rights anymore. No responsibilities and I could do whatever the hell I wanted. I could never hurt her. My life used to be normal. *** Until a few days after and of course I hadn‟t believed him at first.

I got up from my bed and walked over and unlocked it. “Thank you. her Italian accent shocking me out of my own problems. simply nodding at me. what‟s that smell?” She jumped and thrusted her hands in the air. thinking. I grabbed my keys and made my way to my car. I held out my hands and grabbed her. “Mmm. you have to get ready for school now. I‟ll be here all my life. more healthy and alive.” She laughed and it rang through the house like a thousand bells. Freshmen and juniors hopped out of their parents cars. she followed him mumbling something to him in Italian. her long brown hair pulled back into a messy ponytail and her emerald green eyes shining brightly at me. After I had stuffed my face with about three eggs and ten pieces of bacon. Her body was looking so much better now. After fifteen minutes of mind dulling driving and nodding my head to my favourite song. She was much happier now that my father came home and it showed.” My mother‟s high soprano voice sounded from behind my closed door. thank you.

I clenched my jaw and stopped her hand. After I had drove around aimlessly looking for a spot. “I don‟t really know…” “Oh come on Kris. “We can have even more fun at my place. . Tenth grade president. I got out of my Honda City and started making my way to across the lot. Nichole is having a little get together at her place tonight and I was wondering if you wanted to go with me.” I could feel the stares boring into my back as we walk up to my locker. “The offer sounds tempting enough.” I leaned against my locker. “Well maybe next time then. running her fingertips over my bare arm.
