A/N: I know that Anne Rice and Robin McKinley do not want their stories used here, I want to note that through this story Characters of hers are mentioned in conversation between the girls but they are not part of the story. The girls are talking about the books/movies on the level like saying "Johnny Depp is hott" or "Captain Jack is a complete looney". I think this is okay, but if it isn't someone please message me and tell me I will go back and put in place holder names to appease everyone.
This story is named for the same thing I came up with my pen name from. A good vampire book or movie is so much better with chocolate, for some reason they go together.
Note continued at end of prologue.
Discalimer: On profile, but if you seriously think anyone on here owns any of this… get help please!
Vampires and Chocolate
Memories and Fondue
"It's funny the things you remember in the end,"
"I don't know what you mean Rose, I remember everything," I answered.
"Not everything, surely,"
"Yes, I remember the sensation of my heart pounding when I figured it all out. I remember hot summer days reading in the sun. I remember school, classmates. I remember thanksgivings, the taste of pumpkin pie and the smell of turkey roasting overnight. I remember Sophie and George, Christmas mornings. I remember the exact taste and texture of my favorite dark chocolate as it melted in my mouth,"
"Good for you, I don't remember anything!" the chime like voice of Alice answered.
"Not true!" Rose answered, indignantly.
"Yes you knew exactly what we were talking about when we reminded you of 'Vampires and Chocolate'," I told her.
"Ah yes, 'Vampires and Chocolate. That I couldn't forget," Alice mused.
"Who would have thought, back then?" Rose smiled.
"Alice had daydreams of Lastat sneaking in her window," I teased.
"To do what, may I ask?" Rose smirked.
"I wondered the same thing. If my memory is correct her vampires couldn't ummm…you know," I stammered.
"You still can't say it? That's unbelievable, Bella!!" Rose snickered. "Last night you…"
"Shut it, Rose," I snapped. "So Alice, what was Lastat going to do after he snuck in your window?"
"Hell if I know, should have asked me that before," Alice sounded like she was trying to figure it out herself.
"Even if he could, Tom Cruise's version was short!" Rose snorted.
"With a big nose, too," I answered. "I always liked Louis anyway,"
"Yes, Bell you always like the melodramatic guys," Alice grinned.
"Now that one on that show…" Rose looked like she was thinking hard, "Moonlight!"
"Mick St. John?" I asked. "Yeah, he was yummy too,"
"Do you two have any clue how weird you sound right now?" Alice asked.
"No weirder than we sounded at age thirteen," I defended.
"Exactly like we sounded at thirteen. All we're missing is the chocolate," Rose answered.
"And what would you do with that?" Alice asked.
"Well before I could think of lots of things involving a bottle of chocolate syrup and…" I began.
"Oh God, my ears!!" Alice moaned.
"Oooh! Know what would have been even better?" Rose asked, bouncing up and down.
"Let me guess…fondue?" I smirked. Oh the things I could have done.
"Bingo!" she giggled.
"Would take it to a whole new level wouldn't it?" I asked.
"Most definitely," Rose answered.
"Unbelievable," Alice shook her head. "Don't do it Rose, you won't like it,"
"Darn? And you pick on me, Rose," I teased.
"Okay… Damn it then, Damn it all to hell for all eternity!" she swore.
"That's the girl who spent her teen years in a garage!" I giggled, proudly.
"What are you talking about teen years, she's still in the garage all the time," Alice said, exasperated. "This is the first time we've seen her in three days!"
"There has to be a way to do it…" Rose pondered.
"Do what?" Alice was confused now.
"Vampires and Chocolate,"
Okay, I'd really be kidding myself if I tried to make myself believe that no one knew where this story is going, or where most stories out there are going. This is all about the journey. Next chapter to be posted tomorrow. I'll be posting approximately three times a week, likely all on the weekends. I'm going to the water park and drive in tomorrow and I'm too cheep to pay for a card for my laptop so next chapter will not be posted until Sunday afternoon at the earliest. I want to post two more times before Tuesday!
Review and you get a Dove Dark Chocolate!
