The tears dripped down from my tiny little face. I was crying my heart out, bursting every single emotion and blooming with his voice. His voice rang into my ears as if saying that everything will be okay. His voice poured love into my empty cold heart, filling it and breathing my lungs with bliss. Could have I asked for anything more?
Beautiful chocolate brown along with honey was spilled all over the huge hall. The velvet covered the walls while the light brown carpets licked the wooden shards underneath. The stage couldn’t have been any bigger with huge follow beams. And then he entered, entered with such charisma and style that he took my breath away. He was after all Justin Bieber- the hottest teenage singer. His first song was “Pray”. His voice amplified as he said each word almost licking and tasting what he sang. The whole crowd of thousands swayed and melted into his voice while some cheered and cried for his flicker of eyes on them. Looking at him almost made me feel that I too was singing with him. This is when the tears started flowing like rain. I couldn’t move my gaze from him. My eyes ached…screamed at me to blink but I couldn’t do it. Song after song he made me feel dizzier than the last one. It was intoxicating. I felt I was draining all my energy while he sang effortlessly. And then my eyes locked with him and then I fainted.
The world swam. I was seeing flickering lights, but then the images got more focused. And then my heart leapt, Justin was glowering upon me. His eyes were bright with tears and joy. In those eyes the reality struck. I was his instrument while he was his music. Everything became clear then, we were meant to be together. My power was at last drained by Justin, which only a soul mate can do. As I drank the darkness I had cried out “Justin!” so loud that he heard me and I was standing in the first line. At last I found my vampire-mate!
“Summer, I want you to focus. Look Justin is outside waiting for you since an hour, just standing outside, doing nothing except for looking at you! Why don’t you let him come inside after all he is your soul mate?” “Because I don’t want to! Why don’t you see it, Jane? You know we are vampires and we can’t fall in love with a human! But still, you see, I love him and I don’t want him to be as soulless as me! I...” “Summer, I know how you feel, but this is his concert you have ruined.” “The concert is over right?” “No, after you fainted, he immediately stopped the concert! From then on he is just …standing outside, waiting to see you.” My mouth gaped open. I shut it back. “Call him” I said tightly.
“Hey, gorgeous!” oh my god! Did Justin Bieber just said me GORGEOUS? I mean I am not exactly a normal girl, and not even particularly gorgeous. “Are you, okay?” he asked tenderly. “Sure, you didn’t have to do this, you know. Stay up with me and missing your concert. It’s not worth it…” I said looking at the white sheets covering me. He came closer and kissed my cheeks, “It is all worth it…” my heart skipped a beat as he slowly shut the door behind him and then Jane came in, grinning. “I saw it all honey. You see there’s a glass window right here. And you were blushing like sweet apple! You see, I guess he too likes you!” “He was just trying to be nice…” I blurted, and I knew Jane won’t buy it. “Whatever it is! I don’t care. Have you at least thanked him?” Jane said, and then she looked towards the window and winked Justin. Justin, as he couldn’t hear anything, just smiled back, and then when Jane turned back to me, he winked at me. That was the cutest wink I had ever seen. “No, I’ll thank him. Can you educate me about what exactly happened?” I said still looking at Justin and smiling nervously. “See, first we were in the concert, because you had to leave your house as your mother just married another guy…” I interrupted, “Hey! I know all of that! I do not have memory loss! I know I ran away, and then I came to you, and you brought me here, and I fainted, what next?” she sighed and continued, “So you fainted, and Justin saw you crumpling, he let the mike fall and immediately jumped down the stage. You opened your eyes as he was sweeping you up in his arms, you smiled and then you blacked out again. Justin was almost crying there, not girly way, but just little drops fell down, like small diamonds. The media were all over you both. He carried you till backstage and then his bodyguard took over and then they both ran, while I was trying to be with them, but they were just too fast. In the car he let your head fall on his lap and he played with your hair gingerly, and then as we reached the hospital we all ran towards the doctor. Since then it has been around some 8-9 impatient hours of his and ours…” I was speechless. I looked again towards Justin, and I could see his worried face still reassuringly smiling for me, making me tearier than ever. I looked away from both of them and looked at the whitewashed walls, the tears flowed down smoothly. Jane took my hand and mingled her fingers with mine and rubbed my tears away. “I don’t know why you’re crying, Summer. But just see there are so many people out here to take care of you, and I won’t let them take you back home if you don’t want. You can stay with me. Just don’t cry. And see there is Justin too to take care... Jesus! He saw you crying, he is coming in!” she shut her mouth as Justin came in; he said “Jane, may I talk to Summer for a sec, privately?” Jane looked with concern at me and then smiled, “Summer, I’ll be outside.”
Justin sat on my bed, just beside my leg, making me feel like I should see a mirror, as I was sure I would be looking like total stupid. “Hey shawty, what’s up with you? Why are you crying? A pretty girl like you isn’t supposed to ruin her face crying like this.” He wiped a tear across my cheek. My heart beating 1000 mile per second made my cheek glow pink. More tears flowed down, edging down the chin just where Justin kept his hand and caught all of them. “Tell me; please…” he said so sincerely that it hurt my heart to make him do this. “It’s just that you did so much for me, you let your concert drown and here I am like a loser making you feel more uncomfortable and crying like a moron while I should be thanking you for all of it…I feel so stupid that on top of that I am just babbling more and more, which doesn’t usually happen until I am nervous, you see this…” he place his finger over my lips, he came closer and closer till he reached my ear and said, “I make you nervous?” I was shocked, I kept on saying stuff, and I am really stupid. Now he also knows that I am nervous around him! I am dead meat. Then suddenly some stronger feeling overpowered; blood. I could see his veins pulsing just near my mouth, my throat ached. “Jane! Jane! Jane! Come here!” I cried frantically, making Justin jump with shock. I knew if he stayed around I would bite him and drain all his blood into me, his sweet smelling, and velvety delicious blood gushing down my throat making me satisfied. No! I couldn’t think about it now. Jane rushed inside, took one look at my face and quickly sent Justin out.
“Summer I need you to go to sleep. I’ll bring you some blood later so that you may calm your thirst. I’ll tell Justin that you felt like sleeping.” She said really fast almost too excitedly. “Jane tell him to go away, thank him, and do anything you feel appropriate, but don’t let me meet him again please…” I said slowly, even though I as well as Jane knew that I didn’t want Justin to go, but I couldn’t kill him, he is my soul mate. No! I can’t let that be. Maybe it was all a mistake, maybe he isn’t my soul mate, maybe it was because of less sugar that I fainted. Maybe this is all is a dream!
The thoughts itself made me tired. I decided to go to sleep and then maybe everything would go back to normal. “Okay, Summer, I’ll get rid of him. You should really sleep. But, you know that someday you’ll have to face this, right? Anyways let me think of it, and you have hit your head pretty hard when you fell, so you see you better take some rest.” Jane said. “Thank you, Jane, without you I would be nowhere.” I said almost on the teetering edge of crying again. “I’ll go now. I will be outside after finishing with him. Sleep tight.”
