My first true love

 

Chapter 14

 

My body was trembling, I didn’t know what to do, I just stood there, waiting for something to tell me that this wasn’t real, that The Roberts were not here in my house, let alone Alexander.

 

“Oh, hi darling, The Roberts are back” my mom called excitedly. I forced a smile and nodded.

 

John was talking to Alexander’s dad; Steven, while Alexander stood in the corner of the room, looking incredibly hot, with his messy hair and sΒ£xy smirk.

 

Oh, what am I thinking? Alexander just cheated on me! Well, not exactly, but god,

 

I just wanted to strangle him right now for what he did to me.

 

But this is not the right time, but he’ll pay for what he did.

 

“Jane, are you okay?” my mom asked giving me a concerned look.

 

“Yeah, I’m fine mom….hello, Mrs. Roberts” I said.

 

“Hello, Jane” she replied. I could swear I saw a distinct expression on her face, not the expression that

 

I would usually get from her…this time was…weird.

 

She gave me a concerned and pleading look. I smiled and turn to Mr. Roberts.

 

“Hi, Mr. Roberts” He smiled and said “hi”.

 

“Why don’t we go to the living room and let Jane and Alexander catch up on things” my mom said, Mr. and Mrs. Roberts nodded and followed my mom to the living room.

 

Alexander turned to me and for a moment, I saw the old Alexander in front of me,

 

the boy that told me he loved me when we were little, but I knew that things were

 

not going to be the same anymore.

 

“What are you doing here?”

 

“I came with my parents, they wanted to see your parents…they missed them” he said coming closer. I took step back, not wanting to be any closer to him.

 

“I see that…but they better stay away from my parents…I don’t want anything to

 

happen to them”

 

“What is that mean?”

 

 

“I mean that now that I know that your parents are vampires… I don’t want anything like that near my parents” I said, I looked up and saw sadness and anger in Alexander’s eyes.

 

“We are not meant to kill, we can contain ourselves” he said suddenly pushing me back to the wall, making sure that I didn’t get hurt, he grabbed my shoulders and took hold of me..

 

“Why are you doing this?” he asked. His brown piercing eyes were turning dark, making him look dangerous.

 

“What are you talking about?” I asked confused.

 

“Why are running away from me? Why can’t we be together?”

 

“I’m not running away from you…and we can’t be together”

 

“Why not?”

 

“We just can’t…I don’t love you anymore” I said immediately regretting that.

 

“You’re lying”

 

“I’m not”

 

“Prove it, prove that you don’t love me anymore, look at me and tell me that you don’t love me”

 

I couldn’t tell him that, he is and will be the love of my life forever.

 

“Prove it Jane” he said.

 

It took everything that I had in me to look up, but I told him exactly that. “I don’t love you and never will”

 

“That’s impossible” he said before smashing his lips to mine. I responded immediately, not holding back.

 

Good thing the living room was far away or else my parents would have seen me kissing Alexander on the hallway.

 

After a few seconds Alexander let go of me and pulled me into an embrace, we were both trying to compose ourselves before going to the living room. “Jane…I love you, why can’t you understand that?”

 

“I love you too Alexander, but we can’t be together, I’m with Jack now and I don’t want to hurt him”

 

“But you’re going to hurt me”

 

“I don’t want to hurt you, but that’s how things are…please, Alexander, don’t make me choose”

 

“Then what do you want me to do, sit here and say ‘Oh, it’s fine, go with Jack and live happily with him’, while I’m here suffering?” I was confused and sad; I didn’t want Alexander to get hurt but at the same time, I’m going out with Jack and I don’t want to hurt him either.

 

 

.

 

Things were getting confusing, what am I suppose to do now?

 

“I don’t want you to get hurt”

 

“Then come with me, I’ll protect you and we’ll live happy and in love”

 

“Come with you where?”

 

“I don’t know, anywhere with you it’s fine”

 

“I can’t do that; it would be stupid and selfish of me”

 

He sighed and nodded. “I won’t give up on Jane”

 

“Maybe we are not meant to be together, I can go with Jack and you can go with

 

Wendy”

 

“Wendy?”

 

“Oh, please Alexander, don’t try to hide anything, because I saw you kissing Wendy at the mall today”

 

“Oh that” he said looking down.

 

“What were you going with Wendy?”

 

“I followed you and I thought that maybe if I kissed Wendy…”

 

“I was going to get jealous” He nodded.

 

“Well I was, but you didn’t have to do that, now Wendy is going to come after you” “Don’t worry, I have no intention on seeing her again” he said holding my hand. “You are not wearing the bracelet that I gave you” he said looking at my wrist. I shock my head. “No” I whispered.

 

“Why not?” he asked.

 

“I don’t know” He looked up and half smiled.

 

“It’s time for us to go see our parents”

 

“Yeah” he said sounding sad, I wanted to embrace him and tell him that everything was going to be ok, but I didn’t, I just turned around and started walking. “You’re free” I heard him say.

 

“What?” I asked turning around to face him.

 

“You’re free, I won’t bother you anymore…You won’t ever have to worry about me anymore…I’ll be living today”

 

“What?” I whispered. My heart started to ache, I couldn’t believe what I just heard…Alexander can’t live me…he can’t.

 

Alexander walked toward me and gave me a hug and a kiss on my forehead. “Take care of yourself Jane; I’ll make sure nobody hurts you so you can live your life away from all this madness”.

 

 

I stayed quiet, not able to talk. “Good-bye Jane” he said before disappearing in front of me.

 

Tears were running down my eyes, I didn’t know what to do. The world became darker and I was back again, in a world of unconsciousness… Uhmm
