Plug In Baby: Chapter FiveCHAPTER FIVE TASHA
I woke early, about five in the morning. I'd fallen asleep at my computer soon after eleven at night, having been doing research on a few traits he showed namely pale skin and eyes that changed color. I'd noticed his eyes changed color according to his mood, just half a shade between happy and frustrated but it was still a change. He also occasionally moved a little faster than I would expect from a human being. I had to conclude he was different somehow. He wasn't human, surely.
The conclusion my research had offered was an interesting one. I was skeptical, though admittedly further research into the conclusion presented more things that fit. According to my research, this stranger and the Cullen family were most likely vampires.
Vampire. The word hung heavy in the air, despite the fact that I didn't truly believe it. Then I remembered that Rogar had warned me not to trust him, and that he was dangerous in ways he couldn't e
Plug In Baby: Chapter FourCHAPTER FOUR - ROGAR
It was unbearable not being able to tell Tasha the truth. I didn't know why, but I found lying to her much harder than lying to any other human being. I really didn't want her to trust me, but she refused to believe my warning, and I was very against proving to her that I wasn't trustworthy.
She was very determined, and as sharp as Carlisle, albeit not quite as observant because she was human.
I sat on the couch in my living room, tuning one of my three guitars. I had a normal acoustic, an electric acoustic, and an electric guitar that the Rolling Stones had used in concert once. That was the beautiful thing about being so wealthy I could afford the best of everything.
The one I was tuning was the normal acoustic, because that was the one I was planning on using.
I sighed, recalling the first time I'd laid eyes on her, out on the running track, moving quickly and elegantly. I had to think of her like a gazelle fast, elegant, flighty, and compar
Plug In Baby: Chapter ThreeCHAPTER THREE - TASHA
It turned out Rogar and I also shared the class before lunch break Biology. I was late yet again, of course, having stopped by at my locker to grab the books that I needed. I nearly fell over my own feet in my rush to reach the classroom and when I paused to apologize to Mr. Malina again I saw him sitting at the desk I used to sit at, smiling at me. I drew my breath in sharply, but after my hurried apology I made my way to the desk and took my place on the seat next to Rogar's.
"Hi," he said, flashing his dazzling smile at me. I could just keep it together enough to know that the smile was lopsided. Other than that my brain was completely fried.
"Hi," I replied, awkward as ever. "Wazzup?"
"Nothing much," he said, voice thoughtful. "You?"
"I hate school sometimes," I grumbled. "I couldn't concentrate in English, so I got yard duty. Mrs. Jenkins is such an old prune sometimes."
"Sounds like it. I hear she's terrifying."
"Only if you're a habitual troub
Plug In Baby: Chapter TwoCHAPTER TWO - TASHA
It was Monday morning, first day back at school after break, early. I was running on the school track, getting my morning training done before class. I was in sweats because it was too cold to wear my track uniform. The thermometer on my watch showed that it was nearly ten degrees Fahrenheit below zero. It was a week since the incident with Mr. Jameson in Port Angeles and already the teacher had been suspended pending investigation. I had a new (old) car and though it needed a lot of work it had more than enough potential. My car was found in a dam, completely written off of course. I didn't really mind. It was about time I got a new ride anyway.
I listened to the rhythm of my shoes hitting the track, taking refuge from my hectic life in the one thing that remained routine. I was starting Senior year so everything was busy, busy, busy. I always had another job to do.
I was disappointed that the party hadn't been able to go ahead. I needed Sapphire about to ac
Plug In Baby: Chapter OneCHAPTER ONE - TASHA
I was alone again, hanging out with myself in Port Angeles. I had made the drive to meet up with my best friend, Sapphire Churchill, but she'd called just ten minutes ago to tell me she was sick and couldn't come. I didn't really mind being alone. The only thing about it was that when I was alone sometimes I would talk to myself just to break the silence. I was muttering to myself under my breath, wondering out loud why I was nervous all of a sudden.
Port Angeles was unnaturally silent that night. There was a snow storm forecast but me being me I didn't care. It was freezing, and I was shivering despite the fact that I was wearing all my snowboarding gear plus one of Dad's enormous thick heavy waterproof and heatproof jackets. My watch glowed eerily in the darkness, reading just half past seven at night, and it was already so dark that I was considering getting my flashlight out from its hiding place, stowed in the easiest pocket to reach in my many layers. T
Plug In Baby: ProloguePROLOGUE
It was with more than a little trepidation that I watched him darting from place to place, snarling and hissing, locked into a deadly dance with someone I'd hoped to never see again, let alone watch him fight. I was scared, simply put, but not for me I wasn't that kind of person. I was worried that he would get hurt, or worse, killed. If I lost him, I didn't want to know what would happen to me, but my mind kept playing out the scenario, and to be perfectly honest I was terrified that it would actually happen.
They were circling one another, like two predators trying to determine who was bigger and stronger, but there was something in their eyes that suggested they both intended to fight. Each was waiting for the other to attack. He was protecting me, just like the other eight, but he had insisted that this was his fight. None of the others were about to run in and help him, but I knew they would never let me die at the hands of his opponent, the one being
