Aria‘What did mom mean by “they’re here” before we left?’ I wondered as I reluctantly followed Damon to our room. ‘I thought Stefan was only one person’ I sighed as my thoughts swirled inside my brain. We stood before a red oak door, the handle was made of pure gold.
“Age before beauty” I muttered moodily at Damon. He chuckled and opened the door to reveal an ocean blue room. I wanted to vomit, the colors were horrid. Dark violet with electric blue. “Gag me” I moaned, wishing
This box of bright colors was smaller than my room at home. A circular queen sized bed took up most of the space in the room. There was a white door that led to a bathroom. Then there was a glass door on the opposite side of the room that lead out onto a balcony.
I sighed and started to unpack. Damon came up from behind me and hugged me to his chest.
“What’s wrong love?” He questioned. I nudged him sharply in the ribs, releasing me from his grasp. “Oww!” He hissed in pain, holding his side. I smirked.
“Don’t touch me without my consent.” I growled.
“That’s going to be tough when sharing a bed.” Damon laughed.
“I’m sleeping on the floor.” I announced, making his aura turn into a depressing mood.
Then there was silence. I felt restless after I unpacked. There was something shiny in Damon’s hands. It was a knife, but I didn’t have the urge to cut myself right now.
I went into the bathroom and changed into my favorite set of pajamas. The pattern on them were sculls and cross bones. Damon’s gaze followed me as I exited the bathroom and went out onto the balcony. The northern forest surrounded the house it contained a mixture of trees, pines, oaks, maples. I breathed in the soothing summer air. The faint twinkling of fireflies between the trees caused me to want to follow them.
“I’m exploring. I’ll be back later.” I called nonchalantly over my shoulder before jumping off the balcony. The height wasn’t significant, so I landed softly in the thick grass blades. I got to my feet and followed the fireflies into the forest. Their lights were flickering in an almost perfect line as if they were actually leading me somewhere.
They lead me to a small meadow where they floated just above the long grass. It was peaceful here with the chirping of crickets and the bubbling of a stream that ran through the middle of the clearing. I found a boulder next to the stream and sat on it, letting the sounds of the night calm me as I watched the fireflies continue their mating dance.
The feeling in the air changed, and I knew the cause.
“Draven?” I breathed his name hopefully.
“Yes?” He whispered in my ear, his breath tickling my skin. Currently I couldn’t see him. He was in his invisible form. ‘Probably in case Damon or mom came looking for me.’ I predicted.
His invisible arms hugged me as the last of the fireflies stopped flickering. The only aura I could feel was his, it was filled with love and compassion. Suddenly it changed to a tense awareness of something. Then a swooshing sound filled the air and we were surrounded by ninjas, all of them had glowing red eyes.
‘Oh crap’ I thought before I got this feeling as if I were being compressed. ‘Trust me?’ Draven’s voice echoed in my mind. ‘Yes’ I answered back.
There was a pull in my gut as energy sprouted from my pores. Now I was floating in a huge red energy orb. The orb shielded me and fought off the ninjas.
Damon and my mother jumped into the fight and the ninjas were easily defeated. Draven left and I fell to the ground, weak from the loss of energy.
Then I blacked out.
