Vampire's bride part 2
Everyone froze. It was like a picture had been taken and no-one wanted to brake the frame. Slightly melodramatic I know but these were the people who knew my biological parents. They knew their names, what they were like, their favourite food. Okay..,so maybe I wasn't interested in the food but come' on people!! This is huge in my world.
"Katherine!" my mother calls from downstairs. "our guests are here."
I swallow the lump in my throat the size of Texas and make my way downstairs.
The steps seem oddly narrow and all I can do is repeat in my mind 'do not fall. do not fall.' which is not very encouraging.
I get to the bottom and am greeted by a surprisingly young couple, mid twenties I'd say at the most. They were dressed very proper, the man wearing a black suit with silver pin-stripe and the lady wearing a conservative red suit with a skirt that reached her knees. The man who I assume was Mr.Valdered had jet black hair and eyes to match whilst Mrs.Valdered had sparkling blue eyes and long flowing blonde hair that reached her waist.
I was very glad I had ignored Katie's advice and had dressed in my church clothes so I was dressed in a similar outfit to Mrs. Valdered apart from mine was light pink which of course looked awful with my red/urban hair but at least I looked like 'their' sort of person.
Never listen to Katie.
I was knocked out of my thoughts as Marco and Katie practically knocked in to me form behind after running down the stairs, my head bent forward as a result and my hair practically flew in front of me before it settled for a slight wave.
Mr. Valdered's face remained froze but Mrs.Valdered smiled brightly.
"Katherine, don't you think your friends should go now. You can see them tomorrow." My mother called over her shoulder as she was directing Mr. and Mrs.Valdered into the lounge. I kept my face down and took a step forward, only to walk into a wall. Well... it felt like wall. It was strong and covered in a soft black jacket and white shirt. Hey!! Wait a minute!!! Wall's don't wear shirts!!
I looked up to come face to face with what was probably the most beautiful person in the entire world. I mean it! I'm am not exaggerating!!. He was young, about late teems I'd say, with hair that looked black put in the light of the hallway you could see flickers of light brown like small embers and flames. His facial features were classically handsome and his eyes were pitch black with a dark brown rim around the edges.
"Careful" his voice was dark and deep. It was the kind of voice that would make you follow him till the ends of the earth.
I blushed. I have no idea why but I just did. He stepped around me to follow my parents through to the lounge.
"God, she dresses like a nun, no need to act and blush like one." he mumbled as he strode through to the other room. WOW. He's like an angel. Hang on, NUN!! The angel INSULTED ME!!! Ahhh! He cant insult me!! What a bastard!.
I stood at the door saying by to Katie and Marco.
"you're still coming to the party tonight right Kay?" Marco asked me eagerly. Kay's what him, Chris and Katie call me, some other people too when they want to separate me and Katie.
"sure thing." I said with a huge smile. " just keep it down, I don't want my folks hearing otherwise they wont let me out. So you better tell Chris to pick me up form your house Katie. Okay?"
"sure. No problem." with that they walked away.
"Katherine! don't linger at the door.!" my mother scolded form down the hallway. "come inside and greet our guests."
I'm so bored I could die, hypothetically of course but still....
I have to sit hear and listen to Mum and Dad make up stories about this girls parents. Hah, they didn't know them, they killed them but that's about as close they ever got.
I cant believe I have to marry this ...thing. I think that the word girl is to complementary. I mean come on, she's wearing a nun outfit! Seriously!! Its so baggy on her you cant even tell if she's got any boobs. This is terrible. Carl got a girl who's gonna grow up to be a playboy bunny look-alike and I get a nun. How unfair is this. At least I've got a party to go to tonight. Ill find someone there. I'm thinking....blonde, curvy and A positive.
About 2 weeks ago, my parents come to me and tell me its high time I settle down. Okay, so I'm over a hundred and I have series of girls, which suits me fine, but then they tell me that I'm engaged. I asked how the fuck that was possible and they said it was arranged before I was born.. Turns out that in the 1800's a Lord of something or other was unwell and he asked the vampires to save him. Those vampire happened to be my parents. They agreed as long as the next female to be born from his decedents would marry their unborn son. Awww, I'm still a little baby. Anyway, as it turns out the next female to be born was born over a hundred years later. As soon as my parents found out, they killed the girls parents in the hope to 'raise the child so that she will accustomed to the vampire way', or so my dad out it. But, they lost her, so here we are, in a small and smelly room with two freakily happy middle aged people and one girl who desperately needs a make over. Urgh!
