I stand up and look down at the campus and then at the other dorm..
“You do understand what has to happen now right?” I turn to look at Grayson sitting on the ledge looking out as well.
“I know what you mean but I can’t. I maybe a vampire but that doesn’t change my feelings for them.” He points to the dorm.
“It’s for them, it’s for the safety of you and the other students…”
He laughs sarcastically, “What you think I can’t control myself?” He grabs me by my throat and pushes me onto the wall and I gasp because it happened so fast.
“Gray, wh..what are you doing?” I stutter as he moves my head to the side.
“The only time I can’t control myself is when I’m near you..” He kisses my neck and licks it and I bite my lip hard and tighten my legs together.
“Gray….” I whisper out of breath.
“I can control myself around human so tell your little headmaster I will not join them, plus something fishy is going on around here.” He lets my neck go and walks away, “Also I can’t leave my sister alone.” Sister?
“You have a sister here?”
“Julie. I thought you knew..”
“Julie is your sister!” My reaction makes him laugh, “But her last name is Kiro and yours is West…”
“She got her father’s last name and I got my mom’s. My dad didn’t really like me.” Why?
“I see, so she’s a hunter?”
“Yes, she’s a witch hunter.”
“She hunts witches down?”
He laughs, “No Julie is a witch.”
She is? Maybe she can help me with my nightmares!
“Maybe she can help us!”
“No, we aren’t bringing my little sister in this.”
“Oh come on, please we might need her magic.”
“She would be willing too but I can’t. I won’t drag her into it.”
“Drag me into what?” We both look back to see Julie smiling from ear to ear and she runs and hugs us both.
“Ugh you’re back!” She squeezes me and I hug her back.
“Careful Julie.” Gray pulls her back like I’m going to lose control.
“Careful? Do you think you’re the only one who can contain themselves? Plus it’s only when I smell blood but I would never do anything to hurt Julie.” I hug her again and she laughs.
“So what was I walking into?” Julie asks excitedly.
“Nothing, go back to class.” Gray says deeply and seriously.
“Look big brother just because you turned into a vampire doesn’t mean I can’t decide on my own.”
“Julie we might need your magic to see if maybe you can help us find out what’s going on..” I explain to her.
“Of Course, anything to figure out why this campus turned into a dark grey storm..” Gray raises his brow at her, “What? You think only Vampires can sense bad things, no I can sense danger heading our way and I am going to protect the campus and you guys. “
“No…No that’s out of the question. I am not putting you in risk, if you can sense this danger than you can sense how bad its going to get and I am not willing to expose you to all this. If they sense a witch behind it they will kill you.” Grayson stands his ground but he has a point, Julie risks being killed because witches are the strongest beings and she’s a hunter as well.
“Then I guess we have to be quiet about this and sneak around..” Julie smirks.
“Julie no! This isn’t your fight!”
“Well you are my brother and your safety is on the line and I know about all this so yes it is my fight..” Julie stands up to her brother.
“I’m your adoptive brother..” Adoptive…
“That doesn’t matter, look Grayson I’m doing this whether you like it or not.”
“Thank you..” I smile gratefully to her.
“Kamaria can you shut up and stop encouraging her! She is going to get hurt!” She glares at me, “Look this is a family conversation can you please leave?” He asks rudely and I glare at him but he is right, I’ll let them be. I walk away and I head to my dorm when I see Julius walking down the hallway and enter the headmaster’s office.
Should I? I mean I shouldn’t but I slowly start heading towards the office but I stop when I can hear them and I am far enough and I look out the window so if someone sees me they think I’m just starring out the window.
“How could you accept a student without consulting me?” Julius asks mad.
“Look one of my student dropped out and left so I had the space and her file came up and she is a good student.”
“A lot of your students are leaving..Why?” Julius is getting suspicious. He has the right to be for much that I know it’s rare when students leave and even more when some enter.
“I don’t know some say for personal reasons and they are the foreign students, so they probably leave because of their parents..”
“Let me see their files. How many in total have left this year?”
“15.” That’s a lot!
“What? how was I not involved in these departures?” Julius is angry.
“They were from my campus and they seemed urged so they all would just drop off the letter and walk out..”
“This is unacceptable! They probably had some type of problem and you just let them go without notifying me.”
I look down and see Evan starring at me, he knows what I’m doing.
“Stop it!” He says in my head.
I thought you said you were going to leave my head alone!
“Not when you are being a nosy person and doing bad things, go to class!”
Leave me alone!
“Kamaria don’t make me go up there!”
Whatever… I roll my eyes as he walks away and I try to listen in again.
“So what about my transfers for my students?”
“For West and Kurro? I can only send West…” What why?
“Why? Is there a problem?”
“Well Miss Kurro just started and I can’t restart my files on her and transfer her to your dorms..” No please do something Julius!
“I’m not accepting this, she will be transferring to my dorms and that’s it, they both are..” Good luck with Grayson.
“You seem to forget that you are in my dorm and she belongs to my side.” Who the hell is he speaking to in that way?
“You seem to forget that we made an arrangement and also you have been releasing students without my permission!”
“I don’t want to fight Julius…” Then do what he’s telling you!
“What did I tell you?” I turn around and Evan is right behind me and before I could say anything he covers my mouth and picks me up and I start fighting him but he isn’t budging.
Let me go! He’s blocking my thoughts out, I need to learn that.
“Why are you trying so hard to get in trouble?” He sighs and he opens my door to my dorm and he walks in and closes it and sits me on the bed.
“Because there is something funny going on here…”
“That is none of your business, stay out of people’s conversation Kamaria.”
“I was just trying to figure out what’s happening with the transfers and Nyx..”
“A new student here, she starts in less than a week..”
“Your best friend?” He asks surprised.
“Yes, they were talking about her and some students have gone missing.”
“See there you go..”
“What do you mean?”
“They aren’t missing Kam they literally left a note saying they were leaving.”
“So you were listening as well..”
“I was listening to you and you were listening to them..” He tries excluding himself from being a snoop.
“You are still a snoop just like me.”
“Shut up, Look seriously just stay out of trouble Kamaria, it’s best if you did. You are a very important person now and since you got your powers people can sense who you are now and there are still bad vampires out there, in fact bad people who are willing to kill purebloods because you are a very strong person..” He gets up and walks away.
I thought he was staying away from me… Wait did he listen to my conversation with Gray?
“Get to class..” I hear in my head I grunt and head down to the next class, I seriously hate this bi polar ass.
“Hey where have you been?” Julie asks as I sit next to her.
“In our dorm. ” I smile.
“Ah, so how are you feeling?”
“I’m good, just confused.”
“That’s exactly how Grayson feels.” She laughs.
“Alright class lets get started with our assignment.” The teacher walks in.
We start taking notes,
“So everything okay with Gray?” I whisper to Julie.
“Yea, he will get over it…” She smiles.
“Siblings huh..” I giggle.
“Yea, so what are we going to do first?”
“You aren’t doing anything, now shut up!” We both freeze and look up to see him sitting behind us and he glares at both of us.
We sit down for lunch outside the cafe and I take a bite of my sandwich and it doesn’t have much taste but it was still good.
“So Grayson was telling me that you are moving to the other dorm..”
“I don’t know, maybe and I’m kinda nervous.”
“Well just don’t turn into a snob.” She pushes me.
“I won’t if anything I’ll probably not get along with everyone.”
“Miss Kurro.” I see julius and Julie and I stand up and bow.
“Can I speak to you for a minute?”
“Yes, of course. I’ll see you at the dorms.” I turn to Julie and she smiles and sits back down and I follow Julius to his dorms and everyone bows as we pass and they give me a polite smile, right I’m some type of royalty here.
We make it to his office and it was way nicer than the other one. I sit down and he sits in front of me in his desk.
“So the other headmaster is saying he is having trouble getting you into these dorms because you are new.” He admits.
“Well I was actually thinking. Since Grayson isn’t wanting to come to these dorms maybe if I stay there in those dorms to keep an eye out on him…” I suggest.
“I don’t know.” He whispers.
“Look I know Nyx is coming and I’m afraid to leave her so maybe I should stay in those dorms and maybe I can attend the night classes like the rest and I’ll talk to Gray maybe convince him to come with me as well, so we both keep an eye out on each other you know.. “
“It doesn’t sound like a bad idea, I’ll talk to the other headmaster and see what he says and nobody must know.”He points at me and I smile big.
“No worries this stays between Gray, you and I.”
“Good. Well I’m glad Grayson isn’t treating you bad.”
“Me too, I know he hates you guys so I’ll try keeping up with him since he can bare me.”
“That’s a good idea but remember just friends..” He reminds me again and I slightly frown but agree.
I leave his dorms and head to mine.
“How did it go?” Julie turns from her computer.
“Great actually, both Gray and I are staying together here in these dorms.”
“YAY!” She jumps on me and I laugh.
“Glad to know you’re happy.”
“Yes, anyways I’m going to keep doing my homework.” She attends back to her laptop and I start reading my literature book and eventually we both go to bed but I just keep my eyes open because I can’t sleep, I don’t want to.
I look over to see its only 10 and Julie is dead asleep snoring lightly and I smile.
I put on my slippers and I walk out to the dark hallway and look around, I decide to go up the garden and I jump when I see a shadow when I open the door.
“****** you scared me!” I hit Grayson and he chuckles.
“Couldn’t sleep either huh?”
“More like I don’t want to.”
“Come here.” I walk over to him and see a blanket on the grass and pillows on them and I lay next to him and just stare at the stars. We are quiet for a while.
“Can I ask you a question?” I turn to look at him.
“You were adopted?” He looks into my eyes and smiles.
“Yes, I was adopted when I was about 6 months.”
“Wow you were young. Did the orphanage give you that name?”
“Good question, I actually never asked them. But I got my mom’s last name so maybe they named me.. I don’t know.” He shrugs and sighs.
“Oh. so you never tried figuring out who your parents were?”
“Not really, I just figured that they didn’t want me so I had no need to know. Speaking of which can I ask you a question?” I know what it is already.
“My mom passed away and I decided to start a new life..”
“How did you know I was going to ask?” He stares intently at me.
“I saw it coming, my vampire intuition.” I wink at him and he laughs.
“So she passed away?”
“Yes, she was my adoptive mother.”
“You were adopted too?” He asks surprised.
“Yea but I was adopted at the age of 8 and my adoptive mother got murdered and I couldn’t bare the pain so I decided to runaway with the first chance I got..”
“Do you know who did it?”
“Actually the pain was so much I never tried to find out, Julius probably knows but I rather not know.” I admit to him and he sees my eyes water up.
“It’s okay. I can’t imagine losing a mother.” He hugs me and I just stay in his arms.
“Yea, the worst part is I felt it within me. And I still went out to party.”
“Hey sometimes we do what we think is right, I mean you weren’t going to stop your life just because of fear.”
“You know, you should listen to your own advices.” I look up at him and he pushes me and I laugh and push him back.
“So do you know about your birth parents. Well I mean you are Celine and Lucifer’s daughter….” He gets quiet.
“What?” I ask him.
“How did I not know you were adopted if obviously your parents died a long time ago..” He laughs slightly and I give him a soft look.
“Well all I know is my father killed my mother and he put a curse on me so I can bring him back..”
“I didn’t know about the curse, I knew he killed your mother and he was in hiding but you have a curse?”
“Yes, I have these nightmares and the only way for him to come back is by bringing me pain.”
“And the nightmares do exactly that, that’s why you don’t want to sleep. If it helps I have horrible nightmares too.”
“Yea, I mean mine aren’t a curse or anything and I don’t have them every time I sleep but I do get them for time to time and they are so vivid.”
“Can I ask what they are?”
“It’s my family hunting this vampire but instead they get hunted and I’m the one hunting them. Also the most recent one is them killing me for being a vampire.”
“And I can tell that one scares you the most..”
“Yes, because my father is willing to do it.”
“So they didn’t know you were going to become a Vampire?”
“I’m not sure.”
“You need to talk to them, maybe they knew this whole time.. Maybe that’s why your father never liked you.”
“You might have a point actually..But I just can’t I’m afraid.” He frowns and looks down at the blanket and I know that’s his way of showing he’s a coward.
“Hey, it’s okay to be scared.” I grab his face and his red brown eyes gleam at me with compassion and care.
“When you’re a hunter you shouldn’t be afraid of anything that shows you are weak and a coward.”
“No, they have it all wrong. It actually means you are brave enough to admit it, we weren’t born without emotions and guess what..” I smirk at him.
“Fear is one of the many emotions we have, if we didn’t feel it then we aren’t real or humans. It’s okay to feel scared or lost in fact, what you do with the fear is another story.” I caress his face and he leans into my hand and looks back at me and he leans into me and my heart is warm and I’m calm actually.
I lean in as well and we kiss but it felt different, I grab his face and he pulls me closer to him. Our kiss is slow and steady, not passionate nor rough. It was sweet.
“Thank you.” He whispers pulling apart and I hug him and he hugs me back, we end up laying back down and talking about our lives.
