ALIKIPOV

Hello, B... Brownie? Bronzie, right? Nice to see you and your sexy friend again. I'm glad you could come to class today, the day after my visit and in this class, too. Now, all that's left is to let the sexy guy sit next to me… Exactly like that. Lovely. Maybe we can hook up later. But not get together. Too risky. Much, much too risky.

"Hello, my name is Seth. You didn't appear to be listening to your friend or Alice yesterday, so I thought I'd repeat them. You never did tell me your name."

"My name is…" What would my name be? Should I tell the truth Then they might find me, even here, when I am under the same roof as them, I am somewhere different. I want to stay there. "Aliki," I whispered, drained.

"Food," The voice whispered harshly, cruelly. I was terrified by the voice, but I didn't let it show. I learned a long time ago that they got bored if you didn't respond to anything they did or said. As soon as they were gone, I swallowed up the piece of bread and water soup they gave me. My first imitation of real food in three days. Strangely enough, once I had it, I was full and it seemed the most delicious thing in the world. My head slumped forward toward the ground. I let myself fall asleep. Literally.

(AN: the imaginary line of mine is the switch between Amelie and Aliki. I forgot to mention that last time I updated)

Sometimes things don't turn out the way you think. I was avoiding them. The Cullen's, Hales, and tan ones. I'd realized last night that I couldn't get attached. That's what happened in the first place; the first time it had happened.

Because it had happened. Which is why I wasn't here, but someplace far away, with messed up impressions of dolls and stuffed animals all over the room.

Sometimes things turn out the way you think. I had learned my lesson once, and it was far too late to stop me from learning it again. This was pure torture. That's what they did, though. They didn't just kill people, they tortured them. I was going to live, but the entire time I would wish I was dead. They didn't plan on changing me, but instead torture me, like they were already doing. There was no winning for me.

I'm back!!!!! Yet again, I am asking for you to R&R Then vote on my poll.
