After I ran out, my siblings ended up striking a deal with the vampire elders. The week went on without further incident. Hannah and Emmett would leave early in the morning for the resort while I stayed home with Zach, coaching him.The next Monday was our first day at our new schools. Hannah walked Zach to his school which was about 500 meters from home. Emmett and I took the bus because our school was further. The large five story building was in the middle of nowhere. It was like it had intentionally been built near the woods to cater for the supernatural creatures that roamed in it.As soon as we entered the bus, Emmett spotted some of his acquaintances at the back and went to sit with them leaving me alone. I was lucky to find an empty row on the two seater side. I sat by the window and stared outside as the bus drove by. Many students entered later and some huge guy sat next to me. He reeked of baby powder, but I didn’t mind. Since he didn’t say anything to me, I also kept quie
Emilia’s POV The next day we found a group of vampires at our doorstep. I was standing by the counter in the kitchen area, trying to put together ingredients that Hannah and I needed to prepare breakfast for everyone. Hannah had written them down early in the morning and given them to me before she went to clean the bathroom. I was un-shelling an onion, trying hard not to look at it when Emmett walked out of his room wearing a vest and shorts. He had a water bottle on one hand and a phone on another. A tiny blue tooth speaker was attached to one of his large ears.“I’m going for a run,” he informed me. “Zach is still sleeping. He slept late because he couldn’t stop talking about vampires and werewolves. I could barely get any sleep.”“Alright,” I shrugged. Judging by his tone it was as if he was blaming me for it. Like I was the one who brought a vampire to our dinner table.When Emmett opened the door, he was taken aback when he saw four men standing outside with Rafael.“What do yo
“Rafael is your boyfriend?” I said, frowning. I knew Rafael and my sister had history but didn’t think it was something that significant. I wanted to ask if they had dated before but decided to reserve that for another time.“That’s what I said,” Hannah said. “Okay,” I said. “I’m going to the bedroom. Welcome to the family, I guess.”I still felt there was something off about Rafael but I figured Hannah knew better since she had history with him, whatever it was. What did I know? Hannah seemed very comfortable with him. Either there was nothing for me to worry about or love had blinded her. My sister was known for choosing the worst men available. It was like her trademark, always making merry with the biggest jerks she could find. All the men left her broken. She gave too much of herself when all they were interested in was having a good time. The last one had drained her so much we thought she was never going to think about love again. It seemed that although love wanted to evade
Although Emmett was mad that I was acting like a baby (his words), he ended up taking me home. It seemed he was not yet convinced that it was not safe for us to be out after dark with the creatures of the night roaming the town. I didn’t know if Mr. Morgenstern had been right about the werewolves being practically harmless to humans. He was a werewolf so naturally he was more likely to say good things about his kind. Maybe I wanted to believe werewolves were good because Bradley Lightwood was one.Hannah was home but did not seem to be in the mood for conversation. It was when she asked about Zach that I remembered Emmett had left him in one of his friend’s apartments. After we returned from aunt Zora’s, Emmett and Zach had walked to a nearby apartment building but he returned alone, saying Zach was playing with his friend’s son.“Are you sure this man can take good care of a child?” Hannah yelled at him. “You don’t even know what he is. Go, and you better come back with him in one pi
There was only one thing on my mind as we returned from aunt Zora’s. Bradley. I had not stopped thinking about him and being curious about his intentions. A part of me thought Bradley was a jerk who did not deserve my attention, which was valid, considering he had destroyed my phone for no good reason. But another part of me thought he was just a boy who did not know how to express himself, and needed me to help him be happy. I felt drawn to him, feeling like I could make his life so much better. Crazy, I know.Bradley Lightwood was not hard to find. The first person I had asked about his whereabouts had directed me to the town’s central football field. It was a large clearing near the forest, which made sense. With all the supernatural creatures roaming around, having forest cover nearby seemed a good idea. In case they couldn’t resist shape shifting, they could just go into the forest and do it away from prying eyes. I now understood why most of the town’s natural vegetation had bee
Hannah was inconsolable that evening so we decided to leave her alone. When we got home, I went to our shared bedroom and grabbed some beddings so I could sleep on the couch and give her the privacy I assumed she needed. Hours later, I was awakened by the pulling of my blanket. I opened my eyes to see Hannah standing there.“Hannah?”“Come back to the bedroom,” she said. “I can’t sleep, and I need you there with me. I keep thinking of mum, and everything is just so hard.”I sat up. “Okay, let’s go.”We went to the bedroom and ended up sleeping on the same bed. Within a few minutes, Hannah had slept off. Although I was not a fan of sharing a bed and I had done my duty, I decided to stay with her. I never moved back to my bed.After the death of mother, Hannah had been the strong piece, holding the rest of us together. I did not want to think of what would happen if she totally broke down. We needed her to continue being strong more than anything.Thankfully, she was feeling better the
“The answer to your question is yes,” Mr. Morgenstern said. Hannah and I glanced at each other before turning back to him. It felt good to be prove right.“Werewolves exist and there are a lot of them in this town,” he continued. His wife slipped her dainty hand into his. They were seated on a loveseat couch while the three of us were on a four sitter opposite theirs. Mrs. Morgenstern seemed like the perfect stepford wife who did nothing but care for her husband and the family. “In fact, there are more supernatural beings than humans in this town.”Hannah gasped.“But don’t worry, they are not evil monsters waiting to pounce on you. If they were, you would all be dead by now.”That did not console me at all. Imagine knowing that you’re living among creatures with powers that can harm you with no struggle. I had expected him to confirm my suspicion, but this was a bombshell. “Apart from werewolves,” Emmett chipped in. “What other supernatural beings are here.”“Vampires and witches.
The hospital waiting room was quiet. Hannah, Zach and I were the only ones there at that time. Zach was playing with Emmett’s phone while Hannah was chatting with someone on hers. Occasionally, I would see her face curve into a smile, and that made me curious. Hannah had not been very happy recently since her friends had mostly abandoned her. To see her so happy, so free despite everything going on was a miracle. I had tried about three times to peep and see what was making her so ecstatic but she would sense me and moved her phone away.Emmet was okay, mostly. He was only having his wounds dressed and we were going to go home with him. I was about to get up to find more water when I saw Bradley Lightwood and Mr. Morgenstern walking in through the large doorway.They seemed like an actual father and son. They walked the same way and had the same sharp looks on their faces. Bradley was wearing black jeans and white t-shirt. He was carrying a phone and wallet. They stopped right in fro
