This is the sequel to "Ghostly Friends". You don't particularly need to read that to understand this one. I have done this in first person POV with it being in Liana's POV. This is the first chapter...I hope you enjoy it :)
I sat on a bench in the University courtyard trying to keep my blue eyes open. Last night my idiot boyfriend decided that he wanted to act like a real University student and dragged me to a party. It was only my second day at uni and already I could understand why 95% of the student population held an energy drink in their hand.
“Liana!” I glared at the handsome boy who just took a seat next to me. Him with his sparkling blue eyes and spiky black hair. He was tall, around 185cm, and had decent sized muscles concealed beneath his plain white t-shirt and black skater jeans. I didn’t miss the appreciative stares almost every girl gave him as they passed by. This boy was Acario, my boyfriend. We met last year and went through quite a lot together. On the outside we looked like a normal couple, however we were anything but. The thing, you see, is that my lovely, sexy boyfriend is a vampire and my beautiful self am a half vampire. I was unaware of this fact until Acario came along and revealed my true nature. Ever since then he’s been helping me control my newly acquired powers and keeping me safe from any vampires trying to kill me.
“I hate you,” I replied but he just grinned.
“You look tired,” Oh, I may just kill him. We had left the party around 4am and while I had a lecture at 9am, he didn’t have one until 1pm which is why he looked so fresh while I looked like the living dead. Ironic isn’t it?
“Let’s just hurry up and get food,” I pulled him up with me and looped my arm around his. Ok, so I was sending a message to the female population that this sexy beast was mine and they couldn’t touch him. When you have a boyfriend as sexy as Acario you have to mark your territory.
“You don’t need to worry, Liana, I only want you,” He looked amused by the whole thing. Of course he was, he wasn’t the one needing to glare at the entire female population.
“There’s no harm in ensuring that it stays that way,” I replied, jokingly.
“You look like death,” I had to hold back a scream as Flora, a mischievous old lady appeared in front of me. Did I mention that with being a half vampire, you can see ghosts. Vampires can see them too but generally they steer clear of each other. Flora was one of the ghosts charged with looking after me and ensuring that I was safe. Recently she hadn’t been hanging around as much as often and she told me that it was because she didn’t want to get in the way of Acario and myself. I really hoped it was that and nothing else.
I ignored Flora because there was no way I was going to start talking to a ghost right in the middle of a crowded cafeteria. I grabbed a ham and egg sandwich while Acario grabbed a fruit salad. Vampires didn’t really need to eat but Acario wanted to keep up appearances and so after paying for our lunch, he followed me to a table and started eating along with me.
“Well, although I really love to see you looking like hell I actually came with news from Abel,” This got my attention. Abel was my guardian angel and he hardly ever contacted me unless it was very important. He also used my body to defeat a dangerous vampire who tried to kill me near the end of the last year.
“He says to be very careful this year. You are in a bigger city, which means more vampires,” This got my interest. There were more vampires in this city? “The vampire hunters are on the lookout but you two have to make sure you’re extra careful because, Liana, they will attack after finding out who you are. Anyway, that was it. So now I have to go, don’t forget the warning though,” And with that she was gone.
“Isn’t she a bag full of sunshine,” I joked but Acario was frowning. I grabbed his hand, “Don’t worry, we’ll just keep my identity secret. What are the chances of us actually meeting these vampires anyway?” Oh, how naïve I was.
