"Wakey wakey, eggs and bakey." Someone coos softly into my ear.

I ignore them and roll over, stuffing my face into my pillow. I hear them sigh and then plop down on my bed, creating it to rock a bit.

"Skye wake the hell up!" Courtney. It has to be Courtney.

I groan and sit up. Sunlight pours through the open curtains, being too bright for my newly-awakened eyes. I rub them and yawn.

"What?" I snap.

"Well Goodmorning to you too." Courtney gets off my bed and starts walking towards my door. "Get dressed." And with that she turns on her heels and leaves my room.

"Ughhhhh!" I groan. I stuff my face into my pillow and let out a frustrated squeal. "Why can't I ever sleep in?"

I stop having a tantrum and lay there for a moment. Once I realize how childish that was of me I began to laugh. Harder and harder until my sides hurt and I have to hold them and take in deep breaths to calm myself. I lick my dry lips and sit out of bed. I quickly make it and walk over to my dresser.

I pull out the first thing I see then laugh at myself, knowing that there's no way in hell that a skirt with an oversized tye-dyed shirt would match. I toss them back into my dresser and actually pay attention to what I'm picking out. I decide on black lace shorts and a red halter top with white sandals.

I quickly dress myself and just put on foundation along with mascara. I brush my hair and leave it wavy. Before leaving to go see why Courtney interrupted my slumber I brush my teeth. Once my routine is complete I finally make my way down the creaky stairs. I find everyone sitting out back, lounging in the white plastic chairs I've never noticed before.

"Ah Goodmorning, love." Harry walks over to me and kisses me gently on the forehead. I smile up at him and mumble a Goodmorning.

"What's going on?" I ask as I take a seat beside Harry.

"We're discussing the plan." Niall fills me in.

"Right." I nod and sit back in my seat.

"Hi mates, hope I didn't miss too much." Zayn walks in the backyard with a blonde trailing behind.

"Not much. Hi Perrie." Louis greets the blonde. She smiles, her eyes travels over to me.

"Hello, I'm Perrie." She grabs my hand and starts to shake it.

"I'm-"

"Skye. I know. I have heard a lot about you." When she smiles it sends a shiver down my spine. There's something about her that feels off.

"So we need a place for Skye and Courtney to lure the clan to." Niall says.

"Oh Perrie and I know a place." Zayn perks up, sitting straighter than usual.

"Great! Would you like to take them to it to check it out?" Harry asks.

"Of course. Let's go girls." Zayn looks at me and gives me a crooked smile.

I'm hesitant as I stand and Zayn notices.

"Oh come, I promise I won't bite." He flashes his fangs and walks away with Perrie on his heels.

I look at Courtney with wary eyes. She shrugs and follows after them. I shake my head and meet them at Zayn's car. I climb into the back seat next to Courtney. I take a deep breath and slowly let it out, while I analyze the inside of his car. The black leather is a nice touch, except it's sticking to my legs making me more hot and uncomfortable than need be.

We whizz past trees upon trees and fields upon fields. That's the thing about living so far away from civilization, you can drive as fast as you like. A few moments later we park on the side of a dirt road in the middle of nowhere. There's a little opening in the trees, just big enough for a path.

"Right through there, ladies." Perrie nods towards the opening.

"You're not coming?" Courtney scoffs.

"We have something we need to do, it won't take long. We'll be back in a jiffy." Perrie's eyes flicker from blue to red, back to blue again. I furrow my eyebrows.

"All right." Courtney climbs out, I stay in the car and stare at Perrie. She notices and gives me a fake smile.

"Go along, Skye." Her fangs sparkle as she talks.

I nod and exit the car. As soon as the door shuts they are driving down the road at full speed. I look to Courtney to ask what she thinks about Perrie but she's already halfway through the opening. I grunt and follow close behind.

After another branch hits Courtney in the face she stops and let's out a frustrated scream. "I've never liked the woods!"

I roll my eyes, she can be so dramatic. "Just keep going, were almost there."

She starts walking again but continues talking. "How do you know?"

"Look ahead, you can see the break in the trees." I swear, sometimes this girl is as dumb as a doorknob.

"Oh."

We finally reach the break. Once were out there's nothing but field. I guess this would be a good spot, it's far enough from the house. I can't help but have a bad feeling about this place tho, I can't seem to shake it.

"You alright?" Courtney walks over to me and puts her hand on my shoulder.

"Yeah, come on let's look around." I start walking not knowing what I'm even supposed to be looking for.

When I don't hear Courtney following I sigh and stop. "Courtney come on!" She doesn't reply.

Feeling frustrated I turn around, ready to bark orders at her. My heart skips a beat when I see why Courtney wasn't following. A tall muscular man has Courtney's hands held behind her back. I'm about to step forward when I notice his red eyes. Vampire. Damn.

"Who are you?" My voice couldn't have come out littler than it just did.

"Hello Skye." A voice behind me whispers.

I whip around and come face-to-face with a short chubby vampire. "Who-who are you?"

"My name is Naughty Boy and this is Edgar." He gestures to the man who has Courtney.

"Is that supposed to mean something to me?" I can feel my courage setting back in.

"We hear that you and your little boyfriend are going to...kill us." He searches for the right words. The panic begins to set back in, he's part of the other clan. Shit.

"You're part of the other clan?" I ask warily.

He laughs. "Darling, I am the leader!" His expression turns cold as he steps closer. "And your worst nightmare." He smirks and grabs my arm, a white hot pain flashes up my arm and to my brain before I black out.
