A/N: I hope you all enjoyed ch. 3. Enjoy this chapter. Please remember to review! I don't own any of the books mentioned later on.
Demetri walked around Serefina's apartment, he found pictures of her and her family. He noticed that the apartment was very well-kept. Demetri wanted to do something for her but he didn't know what to do. He wanted to change his first two impressions that he left on her, since they weren't the best. He paced the length of her living room countless times. He didn't want to have to call Jane to get advice because he was sure that she wouldn't give him any ideas that he could use. He huffed in frustration. He could call Heidi and ask for her help, but he didn't know if she would be out 'fishing' or not. He decided it wouldn't hurt, so he pulled out his cellphone and called Heidi.
She picked up on the third ring. "Hi Demetri."
"Hey Heidi, how are you?"
"I'm fine, how are things in New York?" she asked.
"They're all right, we resolved the issue, but I have something I need to ask you," Demetri answered.
"What is it?" she prompted.
"Um...well...first of all, I found my soul mate," he replied.
"Really?! Demetri that's wonderful!" she exclaimed.
"Thanks, she knows our secret and I want to do something for her, but I don't know what to do," he responded.
"Hmm...well, what do you know about her?" she questioned.
"Not much, we didn't meet on the best of terms, I tried to make a meal out of her," he said.
"Oh Demetri, why did you try and do that?" she inquired.
Demetri felt extremely guilty. "I didn't know she was my soul mate at the time."
Heidi sighed. "Well, I don't know what to tell you really, you could try and make her breakfast, but I know that none of us really know how to cook, so that probably wouldn't be the best idea."
"Yeah, you're probably right about that," he replied.
"I'm sorry Demetri, I wish I could help you out more, but I honestly have no idea what to tell you," she responded.
"It's all right Heidi, thanks anyway, I'll see you soon," he said.
"Okay, see you," she replied before hanging up.
Demetri closed his phone and huffed in frustration. He began to pace again. He eventually sat down on the couch, turned the TV on and turned down the volume as not to wake Serefina up. He flipped through the channels, but nothing was really on, so he shut off the TV. He quietly slipped into her bedroom and looked through her bookshelf; she had quite a few books and Demetri picked out a few to read, including: The Book Thief, A Land Remembered, Code Orange, The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay, Turn of Mind, and Legend. He silently walked out of her bedroom and back to the living room. He settled down onto the couch and began reading. He took his time reading each one, but even so, it didn't take him too terribly long to finish the eight books. When he looked at the clock again, it was about 4:00 in the morning. He got up off of the couch and quietly returned her books to their proper place on the bookshelf in her bedroom. He sat down on the bed next to Serefina. She looked so angelic when she slept. Demetri smiled to himself as he gently stroked her hair. He had no idea what was going to happen once they got back to Volterra; he knew Master Caius would want her changed immediately and he didn't know how the rest of the guard, including those who were with him, would take to her. Demetri barely managed to suppress a sigh.
About an hour later he could tell she was starting to wake up so he walked out of her bedroom and into the living room. He sat down on the couch and waited for her to come out.
Serefina's alarm rang and she turned it off. She drug herself out of bed and then made it.
I had the strangest dream last night. I dreamed that there were two vampires in my room, but that's not possible.
She walked into the bathroom, stripped out of her pajamas and hopped into the shower to wake her up. After getting out of the shower she brushed her hair and got dressed. She walked into her living room with the intent of making herself something to eat for breakfast. She saw something out of the corner of her eye and she turned towards the couch. She jumped back and gasped loudly when she saw someone sitting on her couch. It was one of the vampires from the night before.
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you," he said.
Serefina shook her head in confusion.
"It wasn't a dream," Serefina answered.
"Last night?" he asked.
"Yes," she answered.
"No, it wasn't a dream," he said.
"You're name is Demetri, right?" she questioned.
"Yes," Demetri replied.
Serefina went into the kitchen and made herself some breakfast: cereal, toast and milk.
"That's all you're eating?"
"Yes, I'm not used to eating very much," she replied.
Demetri joined her at the table. "Oh."
A somewhat awkward silence hung in the air as Serefina ate. When she was done eating, she got up and started washing her dishes.
"Do you want some help?" Demetri asked.
"No, I got it, but thank you for offering," Serefina answered.
"Please, let me help, I don't like standing around and doing nothing," Demetri said.
That sounds a lot like me, Serefinathought to herself. "All right, you can dry the dishes."
It took them about fifteen minutes to wash, dry and put away the dishes. Afterward they sat in the living room and talked.
"So, what are a few things that you like to do?" Demetri questioned.
"Well, first of all, I like to cook, but I haven't done much of it lately. I also like to read," Serefina responded.
"I like to read too," he replied.
"Really?" she inquired.
"Yes, and I know one place in the castle where you'll like to go," he replied.
"Where?" she asked.
"The library," he answered.
"Vampires read?" she questioned in disbelief.
"Yes, the top readers in the Volturi are Master Marcus and I," he responded.
"Oh, I also love to go horseback riding. I used to go all the time in Italy," she replied.
"I probably would like it too, but the horses would probably be terrified of me. Animals really don't like vampires," he said.
"So all of Volterra's legends about Saint Marcus are true?" she inquired.
"Yes, in a way. Master Marcus is Saint Marcus. The ironic thing is, that Volterra is the safest place in the entire world from a vampire attack," he replied.
"Oh, that is ironic," she agreed.
"You know, you're easy for me to talk to."
"I am?" she inquired.
"Yes, the only other person I really talk to is Felix, he's like my brother and you'll meet him later, but sometimes it's hard to talk to him," he said.
"You're easy to talk to as well. I'm a loner myself," she replied.
"I've noticed that you keep your apartment clean and tidy," he responded.
"Oh yes, I can't stand it being messy for any length of time, because a job half done…." she started.
"Isn't done at all," he finished.
"Si," she said.
In the middle of their conversation, Demetri's phone rang. "Excuse me." He got up and went back to her bedroom.
"Hello," said Demetri.
"Demetri, how is everything going?" Aro greeted
"Everything is fine Master," Demetri replied.
"Remember, she's not allowed out of the house," Aro said.
"Yes Master, I remember," Demetri replied.
"We are leaving tonight, I hope you didn't forget," Aro responded.
"Of course Master," Demetri said.
"I'm going to be spending Felix over," Aro replied.
"Master, is that necessary?" Demetri questioned.
"Yes," Aro answered.
"Master, really, I have things under control," Demetri said.
"Demetri, please don't fight me on this," Aro replied.
"Yes Master," Demetri responded.
"All right, I shall see you three tonight," Aro said before the line went dead.
Demetri let out a sigh and then went back out to the living room.
"Is everything all right?" Serefina inquired.
"Yes and no," he answered.
"What do you mean?" she questioned.
"Master Aro is sending Felix over," he said.
"Who's Felix?" she queried.
"He's a friend of mine and a member of the Volturi guard," he responded.
"Who's the Volturi?" she asked.
"Well, the Volturi are like the royalty of the vampire world," he replied.
"We are leaving tonight; do you want to start packing?" he responded.
"Si," she said. They went into Serefina's bedroom and she pulled two suitcases out of the closet and they started packing.
"Do you want anything out of the closet?" Demetri inquired.
"Yes," Serefina said.
"All right, I'll pull stuff and you can tell me yes or no," Demetri replied.
They went through some stuff and then suddenly…..
"Oh, what's this?" Demetri asked.
Serefina turned around, and Demetri was holding an old, well-loved stuffed horse. She took it from Demetri and held it close. "My mother made it for me when I was a baby."
"It looks well-loved," Demetri responded.
"It is," she said as she set it in a suitcase.
Suddenly, they heard the front door burst open and Serefina jumped into Demetri's arms.
"It's all right, it's just Felix, he likes to make an entrance," Demetri said.
"I have arrived!" Felix proclaimed.
"In here you big, oversized, elephant!" Demetri called.
A few moments later Felix came into the room.
"Oh, was I interrupting something?" Felix asked.
And then Serefina realized the position she and Demetri were in and she went back to packing.
"She sure is pretty Demetri," Felix said.
"Felix, if you're not going to help, then go make yourself useless in the living room," Demetri replied.
"Fine, fine, I'll go," Felix responded as he left.
"Sorry about that," Demetri said once Felix was gone.
"Whatever, it's fine," Serefina replied.
A little while later they finished packing.
"I have to get things squared away at my job, school and here," Serefina said.
"All right, I'll take care of your computer," Demetri replied.
Before going he gave Serefina a peck on the cheek, and then he was gone. She blushed a deep red. Demetri went out to the living room and got on her computer, and he cleared her history from the night before. He smiled and hummed to himself as he did this.
"What are you doing?" Felix demanded.
"I don't understand," said Demetri.
"You're humming," Felix replied.
"I am?" Demetri asked.
"Yes," Felix answered.
"I didn't realize," Demetri responded.
"Well, now you know," Felix said.
About an hour later Serefina came out of her bedroom and sighed.
"What's the matter with you?" Felix asked.
"My boss wasn't happy to hear that I was leaving," she answered.
"Well, boo hoo. You're place is a dump," Felix said.
"I am a college student from another country where my family is in poverty, I have a job and I have bills to pay. Were you expecting me to live in a mansion?"she replied.
"She's right Felix, if you were in her position you would probably be living in a place similar to this," Demetri responded.
Felix rolled his eyes.
Serefina walked into the kitchen to make herself some lunch.
I hope night falls soon, so I can get…. She looked up and at Felix, him out of my sight.
