“Taste the immortality beneath my skin,
And feel the power that lies within.
Taste the dream of the eternal creature,
And see on yourself its mighty feature.
I invite you into my world,
To have a taste of the wonderland blood.”
She knew pretty well that if it weren’t for him, she would have been lying there dead on the bottom of that cliff. She was thankful for that, but she was still upset with him for what he had done. He turned her. He really turned HER. But how could he? Why her of all people? He doesn’t even know her and still he granted her wish… before hers. Her mind was still on Elliot’s betrayal… yes betrayal… he betrayed her by turning Jasmine into a vampire before her. He knew that was her wish. Why did he do it? He knew her since she was a 4-year-old and all she ever asked of him was immortality and friendship. HE knew her every thought and facial expression … all her desires… all her memories… her pain… and still he gave Jasmine the gift she had been craving for.
By the time Alice could realize it, she was already home. She noticed that her roommate wasn’t home yet from work. It was better that way. Without Cyndi home she could be herself… be herself… it seemed so impossible. She has always been living a lie. No one knew about Elliot… not even Cyndi. Her head was hurting and she was furious… she wanted to kill Jasmine for daring to touch Elliot, her one true secret. In her eyes he used to be her most valuable treasure, a work of art created for her eyes only, for her touch only. Now she despised him. She felt disgusted by the memories of them together. She just wanted to be alone for a while to calm down and clear her head before thinking about her real feelings.
Alice went upstairs in her room and threw herself in bed. She couldn’t fall asleep. The image of Elliot’s teeth clenched into Jasmine’s long olive neck was haunting her mind and sent shivers down her spine. She grabbed one of her pillows and hugged it tight and tried singing to herself to kill the monstrous thought. In the end she fell asleep and dreamt of faraway lands and perfect sights with perfect beings. She dreamt of woods and flowers… of butterflies in the moon-light… of Elliot calling out her name in a field of wild-flowers.
‘Alice!’ his voice so calm as always. ‘Come here, Alice.’
She turned around and moved towards her dark prince. As she came closer to him she noticed how bright the sun actually was and how her beloved Elliot was actually burning in the middle of the meadow. She tried to run and save him from death, but no matter how fast she was running she just couldn’t get closer. Elliot finally turned into dust.
‘Eliot!!’ she screamed waking up.
‘I’m here. You don’t have to shout!’ Elliot replied with a smirk on his face. He was already there leaning on the wall acting all cool and in control with his arms crossed.
As she saw him there she noticed the moon was already up… the night had arrived. But it didn’t take her longer than 2 seconds to remember what happened and how she felt about it. She took her pillow and threw it at him with all her strength.
“What are you doing here?” she asked him while getting out of bed and changing into her pajamas. It was not uncommon for her to do that, they had been knowing each other since she was a child and she has walked in her lingerie in front of Elliot lots of times. She has taken showers in front of him as well. Somehow this time it was making him a bit uncomfortable and this feeling was confusing him, but he didn’t hesitate to answer her.
‘What do you mean what am i doing here? What I’ve been doing every night here since we’ve met.’ he answered her with a smirk on his face while checking her out in her lingerie.
Alice changed into her pajamas and headed towards the bathroom, leaving Elliot wandering around through her stuff in her room. ‘Elliot, I’m not into playing games.’
Elliot’s face was full of content. He knew his actions were affecting her and he was enjoying every minute of it. He took one of her shirts and smelled it. ‘My sweet innocent Alice… I have absolutely NO idea what you’re talking about. Did you have a bad dream about games and such?’ he answered her on a calm tone moving around her room as if he owned the place.
