It was a cold winter afternoon while Jalissa and four of her best friends- Nikki Reed,Naomi Cruz,Chris Tanners,and Tyler Reed -hung out at Kiki's Cafe'.That was there hang out after school. Everyday they would talk about the lastest school gossip going around.
Naomi went on about her crush, David Alexander and how cute he looked at school that day.Jalissa never listened to her when she talked about David,she didn't know what Naomi saw in him.While ignoring Naomi's story Jalissa was staring across the street at a guy who had just stepped out of a taxi.Suddenly there were tires screeching up the street,there was a taxi speeding up the street towards the guy.The guy had obviously known that the taxi was coming but he didn't move outof the way.In a matter of seconds he got run over by the taxi!Pretty soon the guy was up on his feet?Not a broken bone,untouched and unharmed?!?!Jalissa ran to where the guy was now standing with not a scratch on him.
"Are you okay?You could of been killed!",screamed Jalissa.
"What are you talking about?",answered the mysterious guy.
As soon as he made eye contact with Jalissa, she had recognized who he was.He was Vladimir Anderson,the captain of the baseball team at her school.His gentle hazel eyes glistened like a new blanket of snow.His brunette hair had fresh snowflakes in it, he was tall like a male model,but he had patient but angelic face.Jalissa had a crush on him ever since the 4th grade.In the past she had no buissness talking to him 'cuz he was alot more popular than she was,so they kept their distances.She had never talked to him until now.
"Are you talking to me?",Vladimir asked puzzled, looking around.She felt nervious talking to him,after standing there for what felt like forever, she answered him.
"Oh yeah,I was.",Jalissa felt really stupid."You should be dead for how fast that taxi was going.", answered Jalissa nervously.
"Well as you see I am in no harm.", he answered,looking up and down himself.
"But how could you have survived that?",
"I don't know,you must of been seeing things!?",
"Okay, then maybe I must be seeing things",she said puzzled,"Alot of things have been acting weird to me lately."
Somethings had been acting weird to her......like this morning when she had looked at her wrist she saw dark blue veins,and at breakfast she wanted her meat raw and not cooked!!When she had cut herself with a broken glass cup while washing the dishes the night before her blood was blue, like ink and not red?What was happening to her?
Victoria loved taking her afternoon shopping sprees with her two best friends, Selena Stuart and Mandy Smith.She just adored shopping at Benny's Outfitters,they had always had her size in the store.In the dress rooms Victoria was trying on a dress for the upcoming Fall Formal this Saturday.When she came out she had asked Selena and Mandy what they had thought about the dress.
"What do you think about this one;too much?",Victoria asked.It was the fifth dress she had tryed on that afternoon,now she knew that this dress was the one.She was posing in front of a three dimentional mirror in a $700 dollar one-shoulder,emrald green dress with matching earrings,tiara,and a purse.
"Great you look hot!",giggled Mandy.
"Oh yeah,you look awesome",Selena grumbled.Selena's eyes and mind were somewhere else.She was checking out the male cashier at the front of the store.Selena had only come on the afternoon shopping sprees at Benny's just to see him.Whenever the girls would go to other stores she would just stay in the car and wait for them.Selena had only talked to him once;and that was when she had asked if the store had bathrooms.But now she was going to have a conversation with him. Walking up to the cashier desk not thinking about what to say she asked him a question.
"What are you doing Saturday night?",asked Selena.
The male cashier looked Selena up and down and responded,"Nothing why?Who wants to know?",Selena loved the sound of his voice,it sounded like chimes dancing in the wind.She had stopped daydreaming to answer his question."Oh no one,just me.I just wanted to know would you like to go to my school's Fall Formals with me?"
Then he smiled;showing his perfect white teeth.He looked Selena up and down once more and answered,"Yeah sure,what time do you want me to pick you up?",
Selena was surprised that he said yes!She was now blushing."How about 7:00?",
"Yeah 7:00,oh and by the way my name is Erick",he held out his hand for Selena to shake it.
Selena shook his hand- the guy's hand was alot more warmer than Selena's- and replied"Selena,nice to meet you.Heres my number",she handed Erick her number on a piece of paper."See you Saturday"
Soon after Selena had heard Mandy tell her that it was time to go and that Victoria had finally found a dress.Before Selena had left the store she had made eye contact and wave good-bye to Erick one last time.He smiled and waved back, Selena was distracted by his smile so much that she had ran right onto the store door!!
Selena was on the floor now with Mandy at her side,lifting her up saying,"Blinded by love,watch where you are going silly!!!",she smiled.
Selena felt so embarassed that she couldn't even look up.She had heard Victoria laughing at her from the car,waiting for them.Selena had hoped that Erick hadn't seen what happened 'He must of' she thought.
After all that shopping the girls decided to go to Kiki's Cafe' to get some cappucinos.When they drove by the cafe' Victoria had seen her twin brother,Vladimir talking to that freak from school,Jalissa Jordan.This made Victoria angry.She never liked it when Vladimir would talk to upopular girls.It made her feel very uncomfortable.Since they were twins they had an eternal bond and not anyone or anything could break them apart from each other.Their bond was FOREVER.
