Chapter 10

Nothing. My heart felt hollow and blank after Dane's words. It was shocking, really, to feel that way. Back at home, the guys I dated have never left me a permanently bruise like this. If they said that their parents told them to date someone else, I would of call him a loser and dump him immediately. But, Dane, he had some weird effect on me like no one else. It was like he had grown on me and I've grown to tolerate so much of him. Actually, tolerate is not the word. The word would be more like crave. I'm in deep shit, that's for sure.

The next day was Saturday, and it was time to go to town so the boys can pick up some girls for dates. Or they could just hang out if they already sent invites to the girls they know. In my opinion, this ball thinks is kind of bogus, but hey, good looking vampire boys in tuxes, girls would take that any day. Dressed in black jeans, white tank top, and black leather jacket, I walked into the living room to see Glen, Lance, Jay, and Heath all standing together, whispering in low tones.

"I didn't know guys gossip," I said as I approached them.

They jumped at the sound of my voice and looked guiltily at me.

"Um...yeah. Dane said he's not going," Jay admitted to me.

I looked at him for a moment, "And I care about this because?"

They glanced at each other once more and Glen said, "I know you have a thing for Dane."

Did a hear a jealous tone in his voice? Or was that my imagination? I took a long look at them and I saw the same dark twinge in their eyes.

I shrugged, "It's alright you guys. Don't get so worked up."

I changed the subject immediately, "Come on. We should get going before we miss the bus."

They nodded and we left. Out front, I saw boys were everywhere, talking, hanging out, and acting like boys. Did I mention that they were all wearing clothes that most models would die just to get? I shook my head and got on the bus. Jay plopped down next to me and turn to smile at me.

"So how do you guys get girls anyway? Just walk around and hit on the hottest one you see?"

Jay smiled, "Something like that."

"Do they fall for it?" I asked skeptically.

Lance, who sat behind me, said, "Yeah, they do. That is because we are too damn good looking to resist."

I smirked, "And don't forget modest too."

They all laughed and the bus finally took off. Twenty minutes of driving down the mountains took us to a relatively big town, full of bustling people. We got off the bus and every turn and stare at the godly looking guys. I heard some girls sighed in content while some boys glared dagger at us.

I shook my head and turn to my guys, "I'm going to go look around. Good luck."

They nodded distractedly and I walked away into the sea of people. As I pass, I noticed some boys about my age turn to stare. I ignored them and saw a signed that caught my attention immediately. It was Starbucks.

I opened the door and the whiff of coffee hit me. It smelled so good and I couldn't resist. Yum. With a Caramel Frappachino in my hands, I turned around and search for a table. I was walking to find one when I felt impact on my left. I dropped my drink and face whoever bumped me in anger that probably radiated off of me like a furnace.

"I'm sorry," a smooth voice apologized.

I saw sea-green eyes, blond hair, and a tannish face of a very good looking guy. He was hot, I have to admit. Kinda hot like Dane, which is saying something because Dane is the hottest guy at school.

"Are you okay?" he asked me worriedly.

"Fine," I snapped and turn to walk away.

"Hey, I said that I'm sorry. I'm Trent, by the way," He smiled and offered me his hand.

"Hi Trent. Bye Trent," and I tried to walk away but he match his stride with mine.

"It's polite to introduced yourself, you know," Trent pointed out.

"You should know me as the girl you bumped into at Starbucks," I replied. I sat down on one of the sofa and Trent sat down next to me.

"Look, that was an accident," he insisted.

I turn to face him, "Why are you following me? Don't you have like a life or a girlfriend to annoy?"

Trent shook his head, "Broke up with her yesterday. I found out that she was cheating on me."

I softened just a little, "That sucks."

"Yeah, but I'm got lucky since I happen to bump into a really hot girl at Starbucks," he smirked.

I raised my eyebrows.

"So, what is your name?" he asked.

"Alexandrina McKay, but call me Lexi. If you call me by my full name, I'll snap your neck," I said evenly and he laughed.

"What school do you go to, Lexi?" he asked me.

I looked at him for a moment but said, "Nightshade Academy."

That triggered something in his gaze. He eyes flashed coldly for a second, and I wasn't sure if it was there at all.

"You?" I asked politely.

"Upper Town High School," he replied. Upper Town was the town's name. Creative right?

I nodded and he said, "The ball is coming up, right?"

"Yeah, why do you ask?" I said suspiciously.

He shrugged, "It's like this every year. The boys from that school would come to town to ask the girls as their date."

He sounded pissed off when he said that.

"Why are you pissed?" I asked him.

"Not pissed, just that girls always end up crazy afterward," he replied.

I looked at him for a moment and wondered if he knew the boys were vampires. Probably not, but whatever.

Trent turn back to happy-go-lucky again. "So, do you have a date to go to the ball yet?"

I shook my head, "I'm not going."

"Why not? It's really fun. At least, that what my sister told me," he said.

"Your sister?" I asked him.

"Yeah, Cindy is sixteen. A guy name Dane asked her to go last year. She's crazy for him," Trent remarked dryly.

Dane asked a Cindy out last year? There it is, the envy shot through me again.

"But Dane is a total player. He kissed her, then broke hear heart, saying that his parents has another girl set for him," Trent told me.

My breath caught in my throat, and I tried to breathe evenly again. Is it even possible that Cindy and I happened to be in the very same situation?

Dane's a player, and a heart breaker, but something doesn't match somehow. Whatever, though. Dane and I never even started, but something felt empty inside me. Maybe if I learn to like another guy, it would stop. I turned to Trent.

"You want to go to the ball with me?" I asked him, a part of me hoped he would say no.

"Sure, I'll meet you by the Nightshade tree by the gate," He smiled and walked easily out.

Something felt really wrong, but I couldn't put my hands on it.
