Half Vampire, Half Angel and a Very Confused Girl Chapter 2
I was staring into a blue ocean, no a turquoise sea. That might be a
beautiful picture sight picturesque even, but that does not count when
you are staring into your eyes, eyes that used to be a boring safe brown
and now are a brilliant turquoise.
What the HELL happened to me, did I catch some strange disease or
something? Well at least now i know what everyone was staring at.
I took a closer look at myself looking for answers; instead i came out with
more questions. Was my skin always that clear and luminescent? Did my
eyes look bigger? Was my hair really that dark and shinny?
It was then that I realized that i may not be alone in the bathroom. After
checking under each stall i locked the main door and collapsed in the floor.
I tried to calm myself down before I had a full on panic attack.
Deep calm breaths Claire, you will be OK. Maybe you were just hallucinating
or the lighting in the bathroom was off, ya that's all.
After my little pep talk I got up enough courage to take another look in
Ah hell I moaned. I was looking at me yet it wasn't the same person I was
used to seeing. This gorgeous person could not be me! What happened to
the boring brown eyes!
UGHHH! All the people at school are going to think I got coloured contacts!
This will ruin any sort of social standing I had, or didn't have as Meg pointed
My stomach was growling like crazy, it was lunch time and it was begging
me for food. I CANNOT go out like this! I glared at the beautiful person in
Ok so my eyes are now turquoise well if i turned them that way
unconsciously, then I can turn them back, I thought determinedly. I closed
my eyes and pictured myself before. Thick brown hair, which had a red tint
to it in sunlight, clear skin with some blush in it (it never goes away), thin
but not skinny and most of all big BROWN eyes!
I looked and to my relief they were fading back to their normal colour, and
the light that seemed to have been radiating in my skin slowly dimmed to
nothing. I was left standing there in the bathroom, with a sense of
emptiness. It was like a part of me had gone missing.
I sat on the counter listening to my stomach growl and a dripping of a leaky
tap. I usually try to avoid the school washrooms at all costs; they all seemed
disgusting and old, especially this one with the peeling wallpaper and the
tampon machine that looked like it would fall off its hinges at any second.
It was then that i heard a pounding on the door, and the distinct
HELLOOOOO! of Lisa and the distant gossiping of Meg and Macy.
Why me?! I pleaded to the now average looking person in the mirror.
What the hell were you doing in there with the door locked? Lisa
questioned in distaste as I unlocked the door.
Y-you...u-um...w-were Meg mimicked and Macy laughed.
I was never very good at confrontation, but the three of them made me
so Pissed Off! I can't believe we were ever friends. I guess it was one of
those situations where you have been friends for so long, that it is hard to
stop. Well for one of us at least, YA OK just me!
Well, I have to go and like you pointed out earlier, you don't want to be
seen with me, I spat.
Oh don't go all high and mighty with us, we heard about your little stunt in
Ms. Brady's classroom, turquoise contacts and a trick with a light to make
you glow, I mean how pathetic can you get Claire? Lisa said with fake
sympathy plastered on her perfect face.
I was so mad I wanted to scream and punch something! This was strange I
was usually very even tempered and patient. I felt my face go beet red and
my blood begin to boil. I felt out of control like a ticking time bomb about
to explode at any second. Lisa, Macy and Meg's sneers dropped and
confusion and fear was plastered there instead. They had started backing
away, with me stalking towards them anticipating and welcoming a
struggle, when I felt an icy hand on my shoulder, a calm spread through my
body from my head all the way to my toes, I could think clearly again.
I turned around to see Alex standing there smiling at me.
Come with me he wispered in my ear sending shivers down my spine.
