(A/N Pheew, that took a while, didn't it? Well, I hope that you all enjoy this new chapter of 'Charmer's Mark'!)
When I awoke, I had no idéa of where I were. My first thought was hospital, but soon I understand that it couldn't be like that. It just wasn't a hospital. I laid in a bed, and in a bed next to me Lisa laid. Further away, another girl laid in a bed. Beside there bed an old woman sat, and singed in a different language. But something was, well, wrong. The crescent at her forehead was not as before, it was more like... okay, before it had just been a conture, but now the crescent was complete.
"Lisa?" I asked, and noticed that my voice was strained. "What has happend to your crescent?"
"I'd hope that you could answer that question, Ella Clineton." a woman's voice replied. At once when I heard her voice, I knew that she would be beutiful. I looked up. The woman had big, perfectly shaped eyes in a dark, green colour. Her face was heart-shaped, and her skin was in that cream-white tune that you only sees in old portraits. The womans hair was dark red- not as Lisa's , which was brighter- but more like alburn, and it hanged down in perfect curls at her shoulders. And- was I going crazy?- at her forehead there was a crescent, just as Lisa's. The difference was that she also had tatus that surronded her eyebrows, and continude down to her high cheekbones. Once again the word vampyre appeard in my head.
"Sorry?" I asked, and understood that I probably sounded very dumb.
"No fledgling has ever gotten a Mark like one of you three." it was clear that the woman meant me, Lisa and another person.
"I'm sorry, but I have no idéa about where I am, who you are and... well, I barely know anything right now. I don't mean to be rude, but could someone, maybe you, please explain?" I probably sounded even more like an idiot.
"Of course." the woman smiled sofly. Damn it, she was really beutiful. "You are at the House of Night. I am Neferet, high preistess of the House of Night. You got Marked by a Tracker, and he took you and your friend here."
"And the House of Night is..?" jeez, I was really unmannerly. Neferet, the high preistess, snickered.
"House of Night is a school for fledgling vampyres. You are here because of your own safety." she replied. Fledgling vampyres?
"So... am I a vampyre?" I said. Once again Neferet smiled.
"No, not yet. And maybe not ever, but the Mark at you forehead is a good sign." she replied.
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"Not all fledglings gets vampyres." Neferet looked a little sad, "Some can't take the Change, and then they... dies.". She talked about human- sorry, vampyre- lifes as if it was about some sort of... well I don't know, animal. Like a cow, or something.
"Ells?" Lisa mumbled sleepily, "What's happening?". Neferet smiled towards Lisa.
"Welcome to the House of Night, Lisa Ross." she said, and Lisa groaned.
"The House of what?" she asked.
"Your room-mates can explain more." Neferet said, "But I guess you're hungry. You can go with Zoey here-" she pointed at the girl in the corner of the room. Then she looked like she had forgotten something. "But first, would you like to change name? Because you can, I if you'd like.". Lisa and I glanced at eachother.
"Medea." I replied, "Medea Coruscanstella." Neferet nodded, and turned to Lisa. Suddenly, when Neferets eyes reached Lisa's, Lisa turned pale.
"I-I... hm, Eliza Hall." she stammered. Lisa almost shook, as if she was freezing.
"Lisa?" I asked worried, "Are you alright?" Lisa/Eliza blinked.
"Oh, nothing!" she said, and smiled towards me. I wasn't convinced.
"Sorry, but one last thing. Eliza- your mentor is proffessor Lenobia. You'll meet her later. And Medea... I am your mentor." Neferet added, "But take Zoey here with you. and go to the school resturant. Just take to the left, and you'll find it for sure."
"Thank you, eh... mrs? Miss? Madam..?" I replied nerveousley. Neferet smiled.
"Neferet is enough, Medea." she said with a smile. I shrugged.
"Okay, m... I meant Neferet." I said, and took Lisa/Eliza's hand. Lisa/Eliza and I went to the girl and the old woman in the corner of the room.
"Hi." I said to the girl in the bed, and stretched out my hand. "My name is Medea Coruscanstella." The girl blinked shocked.
"Eh... hi." she replied and took my hand, "Zoey Redbird."
"Sylvia Redbird." the old woman said and smiled towards Lisa/Eliza and me.
"Eliza Hall." Lisa/Eliza said and stretched out her hand.
"Pleasure." Zoey said, and we burst out into laughter. It all felt so bizzare.
"I'm leaving now, Zoey-bird." the old woman, adressed as Sylvia Redbird, said and kissed Zoey's forehead. Then Sylvia left.
"We are supposed to take you to the... eh, shool resteurant." I continude, after that we had laughed.
"You meant the cafeteria?" Zoey asked. I shook my head.
"No, she said school resteurant." I answerd. Zoey rose up from her bed.
"Then we better gets to that school resteurant." she said, and Lisa/Eliza and I snickered.
After a few minutes (and after that we had asked some sort of country-girl, Stevie Rae, whom now followed us), we reached the cafeteria... Uh, sorry, I meant school resteurtant.
"And this is the school resteurant!" the country-girl said. Wow, I rarely met someone so hyper as her. I tried to give Eliza a what-do-you-think-about-her look, but she didn't see me. Instead, she looked around the room with widened eyes. Okay, sure, it was cool -no, scratch that- awesome, but she did make it a really big deal. I mean like a really big deal. At last, I got tired of her, and elbowed her.
"What?" she whispered.
"What are you making such a big deal of?" I snapped lowly.
"Can't you see it?" she whispered.
"Yes." Eliza replied, "Can't you see them? I think... I think that they depict peoples personalities."
"Okay..." I had no idéa about how to answer that. I had heard a lot- and now I mean alot- about auras, but what the hell was she talking about.
"For an example yours... I see a moon over a beach..." Eliza replied.
"Cool!" I said.
"Are you two coming?" Stevie Rae asked, "I'm really hungry!"
"Sure." I said, and took a try.
"What's for dinner?" Zoey asked.
"Spaghetti and meatsauce..." Stevia Rae replied, and sniffed in the air. "And... mmm, yes! Extra garlic!"
Eliza, Zoey and I exchaged looks.
"What is it?" Stevie Rae asked.
"But we are vampyres, aren't we?" I said, "Aren't we suppoused to... I don't know, dislike garlic?"
Stevie Rae shrugged. "Just a fable." she said. "And we're not vampyres, we are vampyre feldglings."
"Sure then." I said and loaded my plate with food. "But blood, then? Is that a fable, too?"
Once again, Zoey, Eliza and I exchanged looks.
"Seriousley?" Zoey asked. Stevie Rae roled her eyes.
"Why would I say it, otherwise?" she replied. Eliza, Zoey and I burst out laughing.
"What's funny?" she asked.
"You're just kidding." Eliza said between her giggles.
"No..." Stevie Rae said.
"Oh..." I replied, as I bumped into something- or someone- and spilled all of the food over the person. The blonde girl shrieked.
"That's Vuitton, you idiot!" she yelled at me.
"Whoopsie, my bad." I snapped. The gang of girls behind her gasped.
"That's Aphrodite." Stevie Rae whispered to me, "Watch out... or you'll get in trouble."
I ignored her. "Aphrodite, am I right?"
"Why do you ask?" the girl, adressed as Aphrodite, asked. Jeez, I already hated her. Probably-not-naturally-blonde hair, designer clothing... Urk! Not because it's wrong with dyed hair and designer clothes, but together with that attiutde it certainly is the typical bitch.
"Just wondered." I replied coldly, then I looked down at her shirt. "By the way, you got some food there."
I turned around, and walked away.
"I am not done with you!" she yelled. I turned around again.
"Yeah?" I said, "You lick your friends!"
Suddenly, I noticed that everyone was watching us. What so ever, I thought. Aphrodite dropped her try- just like that!- turned around, and literally licked the girl next to her's cheek.
"Eeew!" the girl- and most of the people in the local- exclaimed. The everyone stared at me. Of course. Even Eliza, Zoey and Stevie Rae! I shrugged.
"You didn't have to take it literally." I said to Aphrodite. Some people begun to snicker or laugh, and some at a table infact applauded. Stevie Rae showed us to that table. Zoey, Eliza and I settled down at that table.
(A/N That was it! See you soon, I hope!)
