Jalissa and Vladimir were still talking across the sreet from Kiki's Cafe'.Jalissa's friends had left her because she was taking too long but she didn't care just as long as she was with Vladimr.Her and Vladimir had been talking about the weird things that had happened to her that morning.
Although Vlaimir was a vampire he could just help her contrel her powers and her strengh.He had explained all that he could to her but Jalissa just couldn't get it.She had so many questions!Was she really a vampire?Will she have to suck blood everyday to stay alive?Can she still eat human food?Was she really an immortal?How long will her immortality last?Can a pair of vampires get married,or can they marry a human?Does she really have to breathe all the time?Will her heart keep on beating?Will she ever age?Can she turn into a bat or any other type of animal?Does she have any special superpowers or abilities?Jalissa finally stopped asking herself questions and she asked Vladmir a question.
"Do I have fangs?Cause I don't feel them?",she had asked this while she was using her tongue to look for them.
"Yeah you do,you can bring them in or out if you focus really hard",Vladmir answered,"Right now your fangs are in.Bring them out."He smiled.
"Okay."Jalissa had focused on bringing out her fangs.She had crossed her tongue over all of her teeth until she felt something sharp cut her tongue."Ow!!!",she yelled.
"Be careful",Vladimir warned."They are sharp."
Being careful this time Jalissa had touched her teeth lightly enough not to cut herself.Her fangs felt like sharp razors and were at least one and a half inches long.They were murder weapons,used to draw blood and attack enemies. Vladimir knew that Jalissa had found her fangs by the look of her face.
"See you found them!!But when you're around humans you need to bring them in. But especially you need to control your thirst for the blood too.",Vladimir explaned."There is a class at school that can help you to control your powers and your strength.You should change your schedule and join the class"
He had given her advice?But at school he had never noticed her or even looked at her.Jalissa and her friends were usually in the Outcrowd,they were never in the Incrowd like Victoria and her friends or like the jocks.Naomi Cruz was only popular because her family was the 4th richest in New York.
"Are you in that class?",asked Jalissa suspiciously.
"No,I can already control my powers and my strength",answered Vladimir,"I'm able to do everything all vampires can do",he smiled."Don't worry you'll learn too."
Then he said good-bye to Jalissa,"Bye Jalissa Jordan."After he said her name,Jalissa stood in awe where she was and thought'He knows my name?'
The next morning the sun had shone through Selena's room window and onto her face.The bright ray of sun woke her up.She was dreaming of Erick again,ever since she had asked him to the Fall Formals she had been dreaming of him every night.In her dream she had seen her and Erick gliding across the Spertington Hall dancefloor.She smiled just thinking about her romantic imagination.Selena wanted to make Erick her Eternal Soulmate,she wanted him to be her's forever.Selena just wanted to kiss him.'Maybe we will kiss at the dance',she thought.She was cut off from her train of thought by her mother calling her name from the hallway.
"Selena darling,are you up?It's time for school.",called her mother.Selena's mother was a tall and elegant kind of woman who would spent most of her time at the Country Club.She had a heart shaped face,brown eyes,beautiful tan skin,long wavy brown hair that passed just inches from her perfect shoulders,rosy cheeks,and she had a perfact figure for a 40 year old woman.Often at times Selena thought her mother looked like a perfect picture that would hang in an expensive museum.
"Yes mother.", Selena answered.She looked just like her mother except her eyes were hazel and her hair was so brown that in the sunlight it looked black.
"Okay Selena your father is gonna drop you off at school today because I have a meeting at the office." Selena's mom was always at the office.Her mom was the President of her clothing line 'LOVE ME & BITE ME',so she mostly spent time with the office more than her own family.Selena can't even remember the last time that her family ever took a vacation somewhere away from home.It bothered her but she was proud of her mother.
"Okay mom,bye love you."Selena was now out of her bed and heading for her room door,when she had tripped over her bloodhound,Angel.
"Oh,good morning Angel."Selena hugged her bloodhound good morning
Selena walked down the stairs and into the kitchen,walked over to the fridge and poured some apple juice into a glass cup.She ran up the stairs,she felt as if she were flying up the stairs rather than just running.At times she would forget that she was a vampire;Selena often felt more human than vampire.When she got to the top she didn't even have to catch her breath.
"Whoa, head rush", she had felt really dizzy, after all that speed had went to her head.
Selena hopped in the shower which only took her 5 minutes to do,then got dressed into her boring plaid school uniform.After she had done all that she went to her parents room where her dad was busy on his laptop writing a paper for work.Since Selena's dad worked mostly at home,her and her dad were much more closer than how she was with her mom.
"Um,dad if you're busy then can I just drive myself to school?" asked Selena.
Her father looked up from his laptop for a minute."Sure, take the Mercedez."He tossed her the keys that were on the bedside table,as he tossed them Selena caught them in one hand.She ran downstairs,grabbed her backpack and then as she was out the front door when her Blackberry went off in her pocket.She immediatly answered it ,hoping that it would be Erick but the voice didn't sound happy,it sounded worried.
"Selena where are you!?!There's a fight going on and you are going to miss it!!",Victoria yelled.She could hear students yelling in the background,Selena was still mad at her for laughing at her the other day at Banny's Outfitters.
"I was just about to when you called me."Selena explained.
"Oh,well see you here,bye."Victoria hung up.
Selena shoved her cellphone back into in her pocket,hurried out the door, and into the car.The tires screeched behind her as she sped down the street towards school.
