My Best Friend's A Vampire

Prologue

Authors Note: Okay so it's another story, and I shouldn't really upload it when I have two other stories I'm doing. But this idea has been on my mind for a while, and I just had to write it out. I actually got the idea from a story I've been reading at home, so my thanks to the author. I will be regularly updating, too, because I'm a major freak when it comes to finishing stories. I hate it when people don't finish them. Anyway, take your time reading it. Please don't flame, but give me your thoughts on it. Reviews are nice, too :) I'll be sure to thank each and every one of you that do. Also, I need a beta for this story, so if there are any offers, that would be great. Thankyou ADSpencer‏ for beta'ing it :)

Rating: T but will be M later on.

Sapphire and Nathan have been best friends for years. But what happens when they find out Sapphire is dying? Can Nathan risk saving her and tell her his big secret, that he is the prince of vampires, soon to be king.


"Awaken to darkness on this place we call Earth,
One vampire's bite brings another one's birth.
A vampire wakes with blood thirsty needs
On the warm rich sensation he feels when he feeds.
He stalks in the night like a disastrous beast,
And what once was alive will soon be deceased.
So when the last bit of sunlight disappears from the sky,
You better watch out unless you want to die."

-Victoria Boatwright


Life's full of surprises. One minute you're down in the dumps and the next you're the happiest person alive. It's like God's the author of a book, and he's writing a story on everyone on Earth. Every person's a character in the book, and good things happen to some of them and bad things happen to the rest, but you cannot choose what happens, fate decides. - Sapphire Spring.

Well that's what Sapphire Spring thought. Her homework was to write an essay on life itself, and all she could come up with was that tiny little quote that she had written. When she handed in the homework Monday morning, her teacher, Mr. Brown, frowned upon it and told her to write something better. But she told the teacher there wasn't much you could write on life, because it would take all the paper in the world to write what life is about. And for that comment, she got an F.

''You got an F on your English paper, Sapphire. I thought you were clever in English,'' her best friend said. Nathan Trees was absolutely gorgeous. He had dark brown hair and ocean blue eyes. He was the sexiest male in the school, and also Sapphire's best friend. Sapphire was neither popular nor a player, like Nathan, who seemed to have a different girlfriend every week. But unlike most popular kids, Nathan didn't hang out with the jocks and cheerleaders. He reserved himself for Sapphire, which, in some ways, made her feel lucky, because most girls dreamed of being his best mate.

''I am clever in English! It's just the stupid teacher thought my answer was not good enough. Apparently it was too short,'' she moaned.

''What exactly did you write?'' Nathan asked.

''Well, our topic was 'life,' and I decided to write that life was full of surprises, but apparently, for Mr. Brown, it's not. He must not have a life."

''I'm sure your next essay will get a higher grade. Besides, it was only a practice test. It's not like it was the real thing.''

''How do you know I'll get higher? I mean, if I carry on writing stupid quotes like that, I'm actually going to fail English, and then I'm not going to get into NYC college. And then my mom will have a fit and-''

''SAPPHIRE, BREATH! Stop getting so worked up over a stupid test paper. If you fail, then you fail. There's nothing you can do about it, but for now, can we just stop stressing about school and start having a little bit of fun? Lately, you've been really weird.''

It was true. Over the last couple of months, Sapphire's mood had changed, and Nathan was worried about it. When he first met Sapphire, she was the cheeriest girl alive, but lately she always seemed to be unhappy.

''You're right, I do need a little fun. How about we go to Pompay Cafe and order our favourite dessert,'' she said. Once again, her mood had changed.

x-x-x-x-x

Pompay Cafe was their favourite little hang out. It seemed to never get packed, and it had the right amount of customers who went there. Since the start of their friendship, they'd been going to the place all the time. Even the owners gave them a discount there, since they were regulars. But today was different. It seemed like the cafe was fuller, and the only table left was the one near the bin. It was the worst place to sit.

''Guess we got left with the best seats,'' Sapphire joked.

Nathan didn't seem to find it funny. He hated the table. It smelt like off meat. It also had a couple of flies flying around it.

''I don't get why we come here when it's full. The table reeks,'' he said, holding his nose.

''I know it does, but I assume that, when there's another spare table, we'll get it,'' Sapphire said, holding her long chestnut hair against her nose. ''Anyway, how are things with Lauren?'' she asked. Lauren, his newest girlfriend, was the tart of the school--well, Sapphire seemed to think so.

''It's Laura, and things are going cool,'' he said, not really wanting to go into detail about his newest sex mate.

''Cool? What do you mean, 'things are going cool'?''

Sapphire knew how it was with all his girlfriends. He would take them home, have sex with them, use them like that, and never talk to them again. It was the same with each one. Again, unlike Nathan, she was a virgin.

''We have a little fun here and there, and that's all there is to it. My sex life is private,'' he spat out.

She noticed that every time they started to talk about one of his new tarts, he seemed to always snap out at her.

''I was only asking.''

''And I'm just saying it's got nothing to do with you. That's how my relationships work.''

Finally, they ordered their meals, salad for Sapphire, and meat, as always, for Nathan. They were just about to head outside when Sapphire felt herself growing dizzy. Her head began to hurt. That seemed to happen more often lately. The room around her became faint, and everything began to blur. All she could see were black dots in front of her eyes. That's when she felt her breathing become harder, and the sounds around her disappeared. Everything went silent.

''Sapphire? SAPPHIRE!''


Disclaimer: As far as I know, I don't think there's a cafe called Pompay, so I own Pompay, and I also own Sapphire Spring's little quote, too. I don't own the first quote. That's all yours, missy. :)
