"He let you sit on the bed?" June asked, her hand slipping so that water slipped from the saucepan she was holding.
"He talked to you?" Abriella still didn't seem to be able to get over this fact.
"So what? Vampire boy likes to play with his food before he eats it. Big deal," Joe scowled from the corner of the kitchen, chewing on an apple.
He'd been in a grumpy mood since I'd mentioned casually that Ashley and I had talked. I'd been particularly careful not to reveal any of the details of our conversation, not wanting to let June and Abriella know that Goliath had hit me. Seeming defenceless in a place like this didn't seem too wise.
"Ashley's not going to eat me," I snapped at him.
"Oh, on first name terms now are we? When's the wedding?" Joe taunted.
"What's up with you?" I asked.
"Nothing. I'm sorry Lizzy. I just don't want to see you getting too close with a vampire. It's not safe." He sighed, his voice returning to normal.
"Why isn't it safe? You think he's going to lose control and snap her neck off?" June said sceptically.
"Thanks guys. When you've finished discussing my untimely demise..." I said weakly.
"Sorry Lizzy but this needs to be said. June, Abriella...What do you think happens when we're too old to work here any longer?"
I bit my lip. Joe was voicing the thoughts that I'd had myself. What did happen?
"You mean when we're sixty five and we're forced to retire?" June questioned.
"Sixty five? June, how many old aged pensioners do you see walking around here?"
A look of dread found its way to both June and Abriella's faces.
"The oldest people here are Olive and Mark. Both are nineteen." Joe's voice turned steely and dramatic.
Olive, I assumed, must be my quiet roommate. I hadn't yet spoken to or even seen her; she was always gone before I woke up and never in the room before I fell asleep. Mark was probably one of the boys I'd seen on my first night here.
"So what happens, you think?" Abriella gasped in realisation.
There was a silence that pierced the air around us, broken only by the bubbling of boiling water on the stove and Joe munching his apple.
"I think," I declared to nobody in particular. "That they kill us."
Two audible gasps of shock came from June and Abriella but Joe just continued to eat his apple sombrely.
"Why are you so shocked? They killed my whole village, they killed Joe's school and they probably killed people you know as well."
The looks on June and Abriella's faces told me that I was correct.
"You don't seem shocked by this." Joe stated.
"I came to this conclusion yesterday and assuming by your composed face, you thought of it a long time ago as well."
Joe nodded slowly, his light brown hair flopping around his ears.
"Well, this sucks." June managed to say through her disbelief.
I started writing this story with no clue as to where it was going to go but I've finally worked out what;s going to happened so stay tuned guys :)
