Jayden wandered the halls, making sure none of the hall monitors would see her. Daniel was the only one to find her as she sat in a dark corner of the hall, blending in with the shadow. To be honest, he was the last person she wanted to see. Zeke, Blake or Sasha would have been in better company for, they didn't know the truth of what she did. His eyes full of sadness, she couldn't bear the idea nor the knowledge that she had caused his pain. Softly, he sat next to her. It was silent between them which, she was grateful for. Until he put his hand on her leg. "Let's skip."
All she could do was nod before turning toward the direction of Hilary's classroom. Daniel spoke very briefly to hall monitors who, let him continue. The teacher seemed surprised as the young girl packed up her stuff once Daniel finished saying dentist appointment. Jayden examined her younger sister. No more smiling came from her face. All that had surrounded her was red eyes, tears and a frown. Some of the boys murmured words of insult which caused Jayden to clench her teeth. The horrors that they had faced only a week ago were uttered in the class. Hilary began to cry once they were outside of school campus and moving briskly toward Sandra's school.
"Can you wait here?" Jayden asked toward the shameful and crying Hilary who was sitting down on the grass next to Daniel. He only nodded, seating himself next to the patch of grass as Jayden made her way inside the school. The office smelled of hospital, bringing back memories she wanted to forget. A small girl sat there, her head in the clouds as Jayden walked to the front desk. "I need to see Sandra Jones."
The receptionist pointed toward the girl on the chair. This girl looked nothing like her little sister. Sandra's glasses were missing from her face, her shoulder length black hair now in a mess and her shirt was a bit torn on the right sleeve. Jayden sat next to her, probably the closest they'd ever been. "You ready to go?"
"Go where?" She turned to the younger girl as if to say 'play along'. Sandra nodded.
"To the dentist, silly." The receptionist nodded as the girl got her backpack from the floor and they made their way to exit. They were greeted by the other two who had come along before they began walking toward the mall.
"Why can't we just go home?" Sandra asked.
"Because then, I won't want to leave and I'm already behind on rent payment."
"Why can't you be like other vampires and make believe that you paid the rent?" Jayden rolled her eyes.
"Because my compulsion doesn't work well. If it were to work, I'd have to eat everyone I meet and see the land lady daily." Sandra made an exclamation of a sigh but dropped the topic. Daniel made it to the coffee shop, instantly promising to pay. That made Hilary and Sandra skedaddle quickly, trying to find something they both wanted. Jayden smiled sadly as they took a seat.
"You shouldn't do that. I shouldn't let you."
"Oh come on. You secretly like the fact that you can buy a coffee without two girls whining that you're a greedy bitch." She could only look down, grinning to herself about the accuracy. It was quite between them for a few minutes as she tried to muster the courage to say something. "So, was your theory correct?"
It was obvious he knew what she was trying to get at. "Yeah, it was… Why'd you even go out with her? You know she was cheating on you with Marcus."
"Yeah, I knew. I guess it's because… She never seemed like that type. I mean, she was funny, confident, sweet…. Probably everything Zeke sees in you." Jayden flushed, hiding her face. He leaned in close to her. To others, it would appear as if they were on their first date. "Are you and Zeke… You know… Going to… I mean, you don't have to tell me but… If you were, I'd kind of know anyway… Not that I'm like that-"
She stomped on his foot as he silently thanked her, shutting his mouth. Her face made her seem as though she were a true Dracula, pale and sunken in cheeks. Once he had managed to cool himself, Daniel looked to his friend who stared into her cup of espresso. She remained quiet, as though she contemplated her question. "I don't know. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love him to bits but… He's just not the guy I'd usually… Do that with. Ya know?"
"Yeah, I understand. You'd much rather do Erikk." Within a split second, the hot beverage he had been drinking wound up on his lap. His eyes watered but he managed a smile. "It's somewhat true."
"I wasn't nor am I always attracted to that kind of… Person." Daniel chuckled as she finished her espresso, not bothering to pay attention to the people around her. In an attempt to forgive and forget, she turned to him. "So… Any ideas what we're going to do with him?"
Daniels' smile froze on his face as he looked down. "Well, I have somewhat of an idea."
"What is it?" He ran a hand through his hair and blushed slightly.
"If you went to his door, say hey and kill him." She laughed at the simplicity, wondering if it was really that easy. Daniel's eyes grazed on a group of girls and his face became serious. "How are the silly twins dealing with the death?"
Jayden found them examining clothes, their faces expressionless though she knew they were somber. "They're OK, I guess. I mean, they're not themselves and their personalities have completely dissolved into something that I don't recognize. Sandra keeps asking if she can sleep in my coffin like Christina used to when she had bad dreams whereas Hilary keeps her distance and stays in her room. But they're getting along better."
"I think they now know that he's creating anguish and they want that changed." He said soothingly. She scoffed, glaring.
"Please. They wanted him dead since he killed our parents. Well, that was when Sandra wanted him dead. Hilary wanted him dead since he killed Russ."
"How'd you guys get here anyway?" Jayden smiled slightly and turned to him.
"Peter. He was my dad's best friend and bought us a ticket out of there after the funeral. He said he'd help us and he did for about… Six months. He's still missing but they won't find him. Not until it's long after Sandra's life."
