"Hey Flor." said Lilli and Ahiru.
"We heard about Ethan." whispered Lilli. Wow, word travels fast.
Ahiru nodded. "Are you alright?"
I nodded, but my face was still smiling. "Ethan tried to... rape me. Actually,
almost did. In a way... who ever killed him saved me."
Ahiru's face grew rigid and Lilli gasped. "He... almost... what?!"
"I don't want to talk about it." I said plainly. All three of us sat down at the
table with Jasper.
"Matt, coming this way." whispered Lilli.
Ahiru turned around, and I did too.
A boy with spiked hair, kind of like Wes, was walking over to us. He was tall,
about six feet, possibly more.
Mat sat across the table from me. Jasper, Ahiru and Lilli looked at him. I
looked down at the table, trying to trace designs.
"What." I said flatly.
"I heard about Ethan." said Matt. His face said it all. I was just gonna say no
anyway. I was tempted to tell him not to ask, but then again, it would be hilarious
to see his face as he asked then got turned down. "I was wondering if you would go
out with me now."
My mind didn't go racing. Not like a normal humans would, taken or not. I held
back a laugh and smile. I looked up, stared at him while keeping eye contact, and
said clearly after a long silence, "No."
The entire room went silent. Matt must be popular.
"But..." Matt's eyes were filled with hurt and humiliation... and anger.
"But nothing." I growled. Someone gasped in the crowd. "It's already too late to
There was a surprised murmur throughout the room.
"Who asked her already?"
"She's already over Ethan?"
"When did they ask her?"
Mike stared at me in shock. To my surprise, so did Jasper. Ahiru and Lilli just
"Who's the guy then?" asked Mike. He clenched his fists.
"He doesn't come here." I replied. Ahiru and Lilli gave me a mental thumbs-up.
Matt nodded stiffly. "Alrighty then." he growled as he walked away.
Jasper laughed. "Is is Vladimir?"
Ahiru and Lilli looked at me. "Who's that? Is he cute? No, is he H.O.T.?"
"Graduated high this year, on his way to college." said Jasper.
"Oh!" laughed Ahiru. "A way older guy? Seeing we're only juniors...
I smiled. If she only knew.
"Hey, when can we come over? Meet your family?" asked Ahiru.
I paused. "Um... I- I don't know. My... family isn't very... welcoming of new...
Jasper threw me a knowing glance.
"I... I'll get back to you tomorrow on that."
I caught a glimpse of Mr. Flahnerry looking at me from across the room as the
bell rang. I jumped up and retreated the room.
"So... you want to show two humans where we live? Here?" asked Vladimir. "Don't
you know we're going to have to tell them why we live outside the city?"
I blinked. "They're different. They... They didn't just blow me off on my first
day here. And one of them, Ahiru, if really close friends with Jasper..."
Jasper nodded and blushed. "I don't know how weird this sounds to you, but the
demon is correct, angel." Jasper smirked. "Hey, look at me. Wow. I'm a human using
divine terminology. You two rub off."
"So they're coming." I said smiling. "Tomorrow."
Vladimir shook his head. He cuffed my head with his hand and kissed me. "Why are
you so easy to give in to Flor?"
"I'm a demon remember?"
"Other than that!"
All three of us knew the answer.
