Conan, Conan Where did I know that name? I chewed on my lips as I felt Sacha's eyes brand my skin as I paced.I glanced up at her to find her frowning at me."What?", I asked a bit harshly. In my defense, I was allowed to be a bit harsh, I was going through a crisis here and it wasn't the what to wear to the party tomorrow kind. It was the I had been aiding and abetting a criminal and the police had found out kind of crisis.Fuck, I was so stupid and now I was reaping the results of being naive.I mean how could one be naive and stupid at the same time."You know you're going to have to go", Sacha bit off, still frowning at me. In her eyes, she was saying, this is what happens when you do things on your own.Classic Sacha, I thought bitterly, guilt tripping me about something I couldn't trust anyone with.Or maybe it was just all in my head.The police had called, and I was to make my way to the station tomorrow for questioning. Apparently they had found my phone and purse in the
Sydney's killer body clad in all black leather garb and a black faux coat, leaned into the desk where Conan was seated behind, a perplexed look on his face."The case has been transferred to the vampire force", Sydney said slowly and I watched, transfixed as Conan nodded after her, my eyes going wide and in awe of the power a vampire holds."Good, we're clear", Sydney said chirpily, standing up straight as she beamed down at me, her silver eyes gleaming with mischief."Woah", Sacha exclaimed, her words somehow snapping me out of my reverie as I realized that she was still there with me and that I was still holding her hand."And who's this?", Sydney smiled, perching atop Conan's desk. My eyes went to his before returning back to hers, my eyebrows scrunched up in confusion."He can't see me", Sydney explained. "He can't see us", she corrected, raising her hand and grabbing at something in the air. My eyes widened as her hand came up to my face, clutching something. She opened up her
Relaxing his hand on my throat, Jacob's tongue sneaked into my mouth, coaxing and cajoling as my body grew lax, submitting to the sweet torment of his mouth, forgetting everything and everyone around me as I rose up to meet the clash of tongues, moaning softly as Jacob's lips left mine. I opened my eyes, finding Jacob's violet eyes glittering with hazy fire as he smiled, licking his lips as his thumb grazed mine and I was entranced, unable to stop looking at him as every nerve ending in my body tingled with sexually suppressed desire."Woah", A voice exclaimed and broke the little spell that I had been cocooned in.I turned, my eyes wide as I met Sacha's round with surprise eyes, Sydney's eyes filled with mirth and then Michael, who was glaring at his tray on the table."Scoot over", Jacob commanded softly, nudging me with as he slid in."Hey, I'm Vanir", he said softly, meeting Michael's eyes.Michael nodded and Sydney looked like she was about to bawl from laughter.Everything sudd
I chewed on my lip as I worked all afternoon, thinking about the text message that I had gotten this morning, wondering what it meant.Secret information on the bots? Who was Angie?What did she know?And was I really thinking of going?I couldn't believe I was actually thinking of going.I took out my phone again, opening up the text again'I have secret information on the bots. Meet me at the amusement park by 8~Angie'.I stared at the phone, trying to decipher who Angie was, and how had she gotten my number?How had she known of my relation with the bots?I was most definitely going to find out all these things, I sealed the thought in my head as I slid my phone back into my apron pocket and attended to a customer that had just walked in.I hoped I could drag Sacha with me. Sacha didn't know anything about the bots. Lanie did, I was going to call her after my shift.I threw myself into work, mixing drinks, wiping down tables and glasses, taking tips and smiling flirtatiously with t
Words reached my ears, the not so silent murmurs pulling me out of my sleep as I opened my eyes groggily, the high end ritzy ceiling bathed in gold coming into my view.Where was I?I felt the soft surface behind me, noting that I was atop a bed and I frowned inwardly, trying to sit up as fear doubled up my heart rate.Where was I?I somehow managed to sit up as I recalled I had heard voices. I glanced around, feeling eyes on me as my gaze met with Sydney's concerned ones."Hey", Sydney said somberly with a wave, her eyes dimming in sympathy. I glanced at Claude who was staring at me with an emotionless gaze."What am I doing here?", I asked, my voice coming out groggy as I tried to recall what had led to me being here. My memories refused to cooperate to that effect."What are we all doing here?", Claude spoke before Sydney had the chance to, throwing back my question.I frowned, "What?""What are you doing here? What are we doing here?", Claude retorted, "All that doesn't matter".
I sat alone for a while, unaware of the time or of what was going on in the outside world. I stood, paced, and sat back down, repeating the cycle every time I felt energized to start it up again.I thought and thought and the more I did the more nothing seemed to make sense.Nothing about everything made sense, if you caught my drift.Questions jumped into my head one after another, piling up as answers were only given to one or two.For example, the question that still thought I would have a normal life.Yeah, that one was answered quickly as Jacob's head replayed in my head.So far, he had called me a property and an asset, I wondered what was going to be up next.Fuck, I was envisioning the questions in my head as living things now.I searched around the room on my second round of the stand, pace and sit cycle, looking for signs of my phone or any phone at all. I needed to know what was going.And I'm sure you're wondering why I was pacing instead of trying to leave, I had tried t
I lay back on the bed staring at the ceiling and imagining different scenarios as a knock sounded on the door.A knock?I sat up immediately, my mind pondering as the knock sounded again and the door opened a little, and Elda's neatly packed head pushed in."Hello Miss", she announced, entering properly and closing the door behind her.I stood, "Let me out"."Unfortunately I can't do that", Elda said defiantly, smiling up at me. "I am to inform you that you'd be having dinner with the Master and his guests and to dress appropriate."The gull, I seethed.He had the fucking gull."I'm not eating anything from you or anyone", I screamed, directing my anger to the walls. Knowing he could hear me."There's a variety of dresses in the closet", Elda informed, talking on like she was a robot and I hadn't spoken. "And the bathroom", she continued, pointing with her eyes to a door as identical as the maroon walls, "is over there"."Dinner is by ten", she finished, smiling curtly before opening
The click of silverware against plates was the only autonomous sound enveloping the room as we ate, I couldn't even hear their breaths, and I know because I had paused mine to make sure they were breathing."Are you enjoying the food?", Jacob asks, the question propelling me to look up at him.I nodded, "Yes".It's the company I don't fancy, I silently added in my head and went back to my food.In truth my stomach was all shades of full, but I didn't want to stop eating.Sydney and Claude began a conversation in low tone, and I had been left to my thoughts once more.I looked down at the food in my plate, turning green at the idea of forcing another spoon into my mouth.Now that I had eaten dinner, I guess it was time to go home.I looked up abruptly, hardening my eyes and I glanced at Jacob's lazy and laxed ones, "It's time I go home".All whispers of conversation stopped at the small table and Jacob smirked at him."You're done eating?", He asked, more of a statement than a questio
