"Finally the day is over", Nikki said while walking down the hall with Jalissa and her interlocking arms. Jalissa was glad that the day was over too. She couldn't wait to get home and just hide under the covers for the rest of her eternity. She felt a little bit better from what had happened that morning. The highlight of her day was that she got to see chris okay and the downhill part of her day was all the drama and the fights. Jalissa was thinking about what happened to Chris and what Vladimir had done to him. She didn't know whether to be mad at him or not 'cuz she still liked him. She didn't see Vladimir at all today after the fight. She was had both frustration and love for Vladimir. She was going to ask any of her friends had they seen him but she didn't want any of them to worry that she might go with Vladimir. She still hadn't decided if she was going with Chris or Vladimir.
"So who are you going to the dance with, Jalissa?" asked Nikki, cutting of her train of thought.
"The dance, DUH!!" laughed Nikki.
"Are you seriously going to be like them, Nikki?" Jalissa asked annoyed.
"Like who, Jalissa? Nikki had a confused look on her face.
"Like the other kids in this school, asking me the same question. When you know that I don't want to answer it. Those people!!" yelled Jalissa. Nikki was quiet from that point on.
"I'm sorry I asked. I was just wondering, you know that I wouldn't tell anyone ,Jalissa. Me and you are like sisters", Nikki smiled.Now that made Jalissa feel like a big jerk for yelling at her like that.
"No Nikki I'm sorry. All of my moods probalbly ruined your day. I'm sorry for being an aweful friend for that" Jalissa smiled and then hugged Nikki. They both held each other, just like Nikki said they were like sisters.
"So. . .are you going to tell me or not?"asked Nikki. Jalissa was lost somewhere else. She saw a familiar face from down tha hall.
"Hello. . . .Jalissa, anyone home??"Nikki was waving her hands in Jalissa's face to get her to break her daze.
"He really was here. . . "Jalissa said. Shw immediatly stopped her pace to a slow one. She grabbed Nikki and turned her around finally Nikki saw who Jalissa was glaring at. It was Vladimir. he didn't have any injuries from the fight like Chris. Vladimir had a cut on his cheek where Chris' hand ring. It was stitched up and she felt bad for him just like she did for Chris. But roght now she should be hating him for injuring her best friend. She cared so much for Chris. But should she hate Chris for hurting her crush? When Nikki saw Vladimir she turn around and said to Jalissa:
"Don't talk to him, don't you dare talk to him, okay? We are gonna walk right past him and not talk to him!! Did you hear me Jalissa!", whispered Nikki.
"Yeah I hear you" answered Jalissa. She couldn't take her eyes off of him. Nikki grabbed Jalissa's cheeks and focused her in front of her and not at Vladimir. They satarted to walk down the hall in the direction that Vladimir was coming from. They both agreed not to look over at him but just keep looking forward and don't look back. As Vladimir got closer and closer Jalissa just couldn't help but look at him every once in a while. The last glance that she gave him he had caught her bye the eyes like a spider with her prey. They looked at each other for a long time, it felt like an eternity. For some reason she couldn't take her eyes off of his, as if she were hypnotized by his glorious green eyes . When Nikki caught her looking she jerked her along and thats what she needed to break free. Vladimir's eyes were still focused on Jalissa. She wanted to look at him for just one more time but Nikki wouldn't let her. Vladimir was now only 4 feet away from them. As he had passed them by his hand lighly brushed against Jalissa's.
His hand was so cold that it made jalissa start to cry. She felt his pain for a moment, as if he and her were one or something. he felt the way he felt for her. Then she heard a voice in her head, "I love you and you know that would never hurt you", it was his voice, as if he were tring to end her a message by touch. But she only heard that a bonded vampire couple could feel the joy and pain between each other and Jalissa and Vladimir weren't in any kind of bond at all. the girls finally got outside and Jalissa was happy to feel the sun on her hand where Vlad had brushed it. The icey touch immeadiatly melted away and then she couldn't feel anymore pain. She wiped away her tears before Nikki could see her.
"See now was that so hard, he walked right passed you and didn't say a word", nikki smiled.
"Yeah, what a relief. Im surprised that he didn't", jalissa wasn't paying any attention to her. She was looking at her hand now and shse could see a heart forming on her hand where Vladimir had rubbed.
"Whoa Freaky", said Jalissa.
"What, whats wrong now?", asked Nikki. Jalissa looked up form her hand and looked at Nikki. She hid her hand in her jacket pocket. jalissa put her arm around Nikki's shoulders.
"Nothing Nikki, nothings wrong now that you've been a great friend to me" Jalissa smiled, which made nikki smile too. Then the two best friends walked home together not thinking about what happend that morning, forgetting and waliking away form all of the drama at Soulhearts High School.
