The bell chimed, as we all rushed over to class. Katrina sat next to me as usual, and I honestly admit that I was pleased when Lauren sat near me. We could be great friends, but nothing more. Lauren was a nice girl, but Katrina was my soul mate… I think. Lauren, after talking to her for about ten minutes, was comediac. I can’t laugh with Katrina. It’s physically impossible. I love her, but she’s too serious. Or I thought I loved her. Lauren and Katrina were staring me, though Kat had a slight glare in her eyes. Katrina usually was more calm then this, though she even had to admit she could be shrill.
What is this teacher talking about?
Lauren passed me a note. I found those so easy to predict. Whenever mortals like each other, they do this. I just thought it was on TV.
Ha, I don’t know, I’ve been passing notes with Katrina the whole time.
I think Kat saw what I wrote, because she flashed Lauren a prideful smile.
Ha. Why doesn’t she like me? She acts as if I tried to kill her or something.
She must of thought something happened between us.
Well, nothing did that I know of.
I stopped writing then. I just told her that I need to pay attention. She nodded, showing that she understood.
I didn’t want to flirt with her. There was no need to break a girls heart. Though, as I caught casual glances at her, she was really a gorgeous human. Her hair was straight, but seemed to have an undeniable bounce. Her eyes were a chocolate brown. Her skin tone was perfect, unlike mine, which was white. Hers seemed slightly tanned, but not cinnamon brown. Her mouth was a dark red, though she wasn’t wearing lipstick. Blood red. I thought about biting her right then and there, but still, we wouldn’t be human. No one would. We would still have to live this way, eternally. I didn’t want to kiss her though, even if I wish to be human. I can’t kill her with a kiss.
Then it hit me. Could I be falling in love with a mere mortal?
