Today I am using Notepad, which doesn't have spellcheck, so please excuse any issues with spelling or grammar, or think of them as a 'techincal problem'. =)
I do promise this chapter is longer than the others though. That's a plus, right?
From Night to Day
Patroling the Night
They walked the streets in silence, looking around them constantly and letting their paranoia get to them at every turn, jumping at the slightest noise.
Zack walked next to her, making her feel slightly less paranoid at the concept of two vampires on patrol with heightened senses instead of just her with no training whatsoever.
Then they came up to a four way street and she had to split them up."Aiden and James, go left. Connor and Zack, go right. Jeff and I will go straight. Copy?"
A chorus of "Yes, ma'am"'s filled her ears with one "Sure, Beth" in the mix and everyone partnered up with the teams she called then left her and Jeff as they went their respective directions.
Jeff stayed close to her, probably thinking she was some extremely well trained royal vampire or something. Boy was he off; she only knew what Dmitri would call 'human moves'.
She stopped her train of thought after realizing she was thinking about Dmitri. Why would I do that?, she thought. He had no affect on her thoughts and he didn't even know her.
If anyone would occupy her thoughts, it'd be Zack.
I mean, she thought, he should be the one occuping my thoughts since he's the one who turned me and helped me, Dmitri just bossed me around, right?
Then she realized she was asking herself a question and stopped thinking about Dmitri and Zack.
They walked further down the street and found a couple straglers out. SHe tried to aproach them, but they ran away before she could. She guessed she could've gone vampire on them, but she really didn't want to have to do that; she would have an unfair advantage, and she wanted them to have equilibrium.
Finally she gave up and asked Jeff to aproach them.
When they spotted the next stragler, Jeff went up to him while she stayed back, keeping to the shadows, afraid to frighten him away again.
"Hello, sir." she heard Jeff call.
"What'd ya want?" the stragler replied gruffly.
"I just wanted to inform you that General Montgomery, has taken the place of Militia Leader and will be making ajustments to Districts 3 and 4. Would you tell your friends?"
With her exeptional sight, Elizabeth was able to see the straglers amused-slash-smug-slash-taken back look.
He finally just reverted to a smug look and replied, "You can tell Miss Militia Leader that she should go away and never come back."
"Sir, I wouldn't advise you of offending General Montgomery's honor."
He scoffed, "And why would I want to do that?"
"She is also refered to as Clarvăzător*." he stated simply.
I wonder if that really is one of my official titles or if Jeff is just making the poor man recognise my rank, she thought.
The stragler paled considerably, but retorted, "Well, she can't see me, so she can't catch me."
She stepped out from behind the shadows and walked up to them silently. She stood behind the stragler as Jeff said, "I wouldn't be so sure about that, sir."
"What do you mean?" he spat and Jeff pointed to her.
He turned around slowly and looked at her face, then her red strip, then back to her face. "Your Highness, I would not aware of your presence."
"I am not a Highness yet, I am just General Montgomery or Clarvăzător, whichever you prefer."
"Oh, I am sorry General Montgomery. I shall pass on this wonderful news to everyone I know."
She smiled slightly, "Thank you. May I know your name?"
"Aiden Jacobson," he replied quickly.
"And what do you think of my plans to give you and the people of Districts 3 and 4 more freedom from Distrct 1 and 2's soldiers?"
After he hesitanted, she added,"Your honest answer, please. No harm will come to you."
"I think it's good, but I am concerned, I guess you would say, about how you will perform such an act."
"Your concerns are noted, Mr. Jacobson. If I may ask one more question," He nodded." I wish to spread the news to more, do you have any ideas of where I could do this?"
He thought quickly before replying, "There is a charity and soup kitchen up ahead on Lemn Drive. Just turn right on the first right and there you are."
She nodded, "Once again, I thank you. We shall leave you now."
"Of course General Montgomery." He bowed and they left him to contemplate who he had just met in fright of her reputation.
They followed the directions Aiden gave them and arrived at the door of a banged up building with chipped yellow paint and seemingly new red, barn doors. Jeff tried to open the door, then noticing it was locked, he knocked instead. They waited for a little while but no one opened the red doors.
"I'll check out the back," She told him, then without waiting for a reply, she walked to the edge of the building and ducked into the alley.
She walked through the alley as fast as possible since she didn't have any good luck with dark nights, seeing as she was now in Romania, engaged to a vampire Prince.
She peeked around the corner, then hurriedly jumped back, seeing the familar figure of Dmitri.
What is he doing here? she thought.
She peeked again, longer this time, and watched him.
He knocked on the back door lightly and ELizabeth could hear the rythim he used. The door suddenly opened and a middle aged woman walked out.
She had brown hair that hund limpy down her back with a dark purple tank top and a pair of black trousers.
He handed her the basket from his hand that Elizabeth hadn't noticed before and she thanked him porfusely before retreating back into the building.
Dmitri turned and she softly closed the door behind him.
She stared walking towards him and as she thought about Dmitiri and what he was going here, she was suddenly going at vampire speed straight towards him. He whipped his head around and caught her, his hand wrapping tightly around her waist, before she ran straight into him.
"Woah!" she said, wide eyed. "How'd I do that?"
Forgetting all about where they were, Dmitri chuckled softly. "You apparently really wanted to see me, Frumos**."
She looked up at his face, confused about his reasoning and forgetting about him calling her beautiful. "So, I think about you, and I run really, really fast?"
He smiled slightly. "Yes, but you have to really want to get to me before your body runs, as you say, really, really fast."
"Oh, well, I guess that makes sense." Then she thought back to how he called her frumos, and said, "Hey, I told you not to call me that!"
His smile grew wider, "Well, I like my nickname for you, it fits."
She blushed slightly and hoped his sight wasn't the best, even for a vampire.
"I can see you face turning red." he whispered, his face turning slightly more serious, loosing some of his smile and reverting to a smirk.
"I don't have a comeback for that." she whispered back, thinking slightly of a comeback and not finding one. Then she noticed how his hands were on around her waist and she stopped thinking altogether.
"I didn't think you did." She also noticed how his breath was hot on her cheeks and how their noses were so cose together.
She started thinking again and remebered where they were.
She cocked her head slightly to the side and asked, "Dmitri, why are you here?" For good measure, she looked around.
His face lost it's smile althogether. "I was walking and-" he stopped as she interupted.
"Tell me the truth, Dmitri."
He stared into her eyes, "I was bringing the leftdovers down here for the charity behind us."
She smiled widely, "Really?"
"That's so sweet! Can I come next time?"
He smiled again. "Of course, Frumos." She looked to the side slightly and blushed again. He laughed. "You're even more frumos when you blush."
She looked up at his eyes and he leaned in.
Their lips touched and a small spark flowed through hers, and she stopped thinking again. His lips pressed harder against hers as she kissed him back. He pulled her closer to him and she wrapped her arms around his neck, loving the feel of him.
Someone clearing their throat made them pull away and look towards the noise. Jeff stood there, shifting on his feet. "I see you found the door," he muttered, pointing to the door behind them.
I couldn't find a better place to end this, so I just figured I'd leave it on a good note and leave it at that.
I think this may be the longest From Night to Day chapter I've ever written! Acomplishement!
Actually, I've written more than two thousand words today, which is my new record! Another acomplishment!
Which pairing do you like better? Dmirtri and Elizabeth or Zack and Elizabeth? Who do you think Elizabeth likes better?
* This means Seer in Romanian. It is pronounced cla-va-ta-ta-toe.
**If you don't remember or couldn't tell, this means beautiful in Romanian. It is pronounced, free-mow-s.
