We drove for hours, until Blake was too exhausted to drive anymore. We pulled off into a little grove of trees and Blake put his seat back as far as it would go and fell asleep. I stayed awake and kept watch. I had slept in the car earlier so I wasn't at all tired; and the thought of someone sneaking up on us was enough to keep me awake for days.Hours passed as I anxiously watched every direction around our car. Part of me wanted to wake Blake up and start moving again, but the other part of me wanted to let Blake rest as long as I could. The sun was just coming up when my cell phone rang. I nearly jumped out of my skin having forgot I even had it. I fished it out of my jacket pocket and looked at the display."Chris!" I said excitedly. I answered the phone just as Blake woke up from the ringing."Chris? Is that you?" I asked nervously."Amberlee! Thank goddess!" Chris said on the other end. "Please tell me you are safe and far away from this tow
"Good evening sir, ma'am; how may I help you tonight?" The chipper young girl behind the registration desk asked."We need a room please." Blake answered politely."Two singles or a queen?" The girl, Becky according to her name tag asked."One queen, ground floor if possible." Blake replied. I loved the sound of his voice. It was deep and smooth but had the smallest break in it when he hit certain notes. He was tall and broad shouldered and hot as all hell. The goddess was kind in mating me with him."How many nights?" Becky asked while typing away on her computer."Two nights will do." Blake said. I had to hide my confusion. I could have sworn he said we were only staying tonight. So why tell her two nights? Why pay for two nights if we were only staying for one? Blake slapped a wad of cash on the counter. "That should cover it. Can we please hurry this up? We have been driving all day and would really like to rest." Blake said his
We stayed up late into the night talking and getting to know each other. Everyone I met was so interesting and all of them had such amazing stories about my birth parents. I don't know what time I finally got to bed, but I definitely slept through my alarm the next morning."Damn it! I am so late!" I yelled looking at my clock. I jumped out of bed, threw on a pair of jeans and a tshirt. I pulled my hair up in a quick ponytail and rushed down the stairs."Good morning honey, looks like we all slept in today!" Dad sang out running to grab a coffee on his way out the door. "Happy birthday! Welcome to adulthood!""Thanks dad! Gotta run." I ran out the door. I ran almost all the way to school stopping about half a block away to catch my breath. I went to step out and cross the street when someone grabbed me from behind and pulled me backwards into the bushes. I shoved the person away and spun around to beat the living daylights out of whoever had the full to put t
6 years later"Amb, wait the hell up would you?" Ashley ran to catch up to me so we could walk the rest of the way to school together. I slowed enough for her to catch me. "Tomorrow is your 18th birthday, are you having a blow out bash to end all bashes or what? I really miss the parties you used to have... I think you are due for a massive one don't you? After all you only turn 18 once right?"I hadn't had or wanted a birthday party since I turned 12 and found out the truth about who I am. Don't get me wrong, I have mostly forgiven my parents and all but as my powers grew and developed it just wasn't worth the risk. I spent hours every day training with my parents and Chris (mostly Chris if I am being honest; I had mostly forgiven but it was never quite the same as before) trying to learn how to control my ever evolving powers.On my 12th birthday I had made my cake explode, but that was nothing. A week later I woke up to find I had set my bed on fire.
I awoke the next morning the sun was shining and Chris was still beside me. Growing up Chris and I had always been close, until he hit 15 and decided girls and football were cool and his sister wasn't... it was good to know push come to shove he was still in my corner."Good morning sis" Chris smiled at me."I don't know what's so good about it." I complained. I had a feeling the life I awoke to yesterday was not the one I awoke to today. "Can I tell you some stuff? Some I know, some I remember? So think it will help." Chris looked me in the eye, calmly feeling my ability to handle what he was about to tell me. I nodded yes. " ok; first, I remember the day you came home from the hospital with mom and dad. From day one you were my sister, never did they call you or tell me you were anything different. You were introduced as my baby sister, and for as long as I live that is what you will be, I want that made clear okay?" I nod again. "Second, I kind
As I came downstairs I realized that all my guests had arrived. Ashley, Becca, Krystal, Melody, Dean, John, Eric and even Blake where all there."Welcome everyone, thanks for coming" I said with a smile. "The party is in the main room, who wants to dance?"Ashley ran up and grabbed my hand pulling me towards the main room, "We've been waiting for you, you have to pick the first song silly!" she laughed and linked her arm through mine. "It's tradition after all."With that we all entered the main room which had been decorated with streamers and balloons and happy birthday banners everywhere. My older brother Chris was playing DJ for the party and was impatiently waiting for me to pick a song. "I like to move it please?" I asked Chris. I knew he hated that song but also knew he would play it because I asked. Sure enough not 10 seconds later the opening beats of the song started playing and we all started dancing around and laughing until our stomachs hurt.&nbs
"Amberlee, get up for school! Just because it's your birthday, doesn't mean you get to miss school!" My mother teased as she lovingly tossed my hair and kissed my forehead. "Happy 12th birthday my beautiful daughter.""Thanks mom." I replied stretching and brushing my hair out of my face. I got up and dressed and headed downstairs to what i knew would be all of my favourite breakfast foods. My mom loved to cook and every year my birthday was filled with nothing but my favourite foods. Tonight there would be a wonderful birthday dinner and after, the worlds most delicious chocolate cake. Just thinking about it made my mouth water.I walked past the full length mirror in the hall, stopping long enough to notice I was finally starting to develop a chest. Finally! I thought to myself . All the other girls in my class had started developing months ago and they had started teasing me for being so flat. Never mind that I was taller and leaner and far more active then they were.
