I opened the door and we ended up on the castle roof.

"Wow," Nate said with a huge smile.

I laughed. "Yeah, I came up here once while exploring the other day. Come on." I still held his hand and we walked all the way over to the edge, over looking Ronovia at night. "Ain't this a deja vu," I said. "Just like the dance."

His face jumped up. "Oh yeah, now I remember."

"We seem to be remembering a lot of things ever since we came here to this country."

"Yeah," he agreed. "Hey look, a guitar."

I looked where Nate was looking and saw a set of drums, a keyboard, and a couple guitars in a shed, on the roof. I laughed. How convienent.

"What are you laughing about?"

"Elizabeth told me sometime before that when my grandma was a teenage princess, she was in a band with her friends, and they always practiced up here since no one can hear them up this high."

Nate turned to me, his hands in his pockets. "Would she mind if I borrowed a guitar?

I gave him a suspicous look. "Why?"

He shrugged. "I dunno. That night after our little outing, it reminded me of my love for music, and I wrote another song."

"Really?" I asked. "Would you mind playing it for me then if I let you borrow a guitar?"

He smiled. "It would be my pleasure, your highness."

I laughed at him and we walked over to the shed to grab a guitar and chairs.


By now we were sitting down on two chairs by the edge of the roof in the same spot, enjoying the view and night sky. Nick began strumming his guitar and started singing.

Everytime I think I'm closer to the heart
What it means to know just who I am
I think I've finally found a better place to start
No one ever seems to understand
I need to try and get to where you are
Could it be, you're not that far

You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reaosn I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
the song inside of me
I gotta find you, gotta find you

You're the remedy I'm searching hard to find
To fix the puzzle I see inside
Painting all my dreams, the color of your smile
When I find you it'll be alright
I need to try and get to where you are
Could it be, you're not that far

You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reaosn I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
the song inside of me
I gotta find you, gotta find you

Been feeling lost, can't find the words to say
Spending all my time, stuck in yesterday
Where you are, is where I wanna be
Ohh next to you, and you next to me

Oh, I need to find you.
You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reaosn I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
the song inside of me
I gotta find you, gotta find you

You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reaosn I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
the song inside of me
I gotta find you, gotta find you

Yeah, I gotta find you...

I smiled. "Wow."

"I know, sounds weird since I haven't really done thing kinda thing in a while but-"

"Oh quit it, Nate. It's good!"


I nodded and smiled. "Yeah. Best song you've ever written actually... And, you sound even better with your voice gone through puberty."

Nate blushed and I laughed. Truth was, I haven't heard Nate sing since his voice was, well, still a boy's voice. Now here we are, 15-years old, different people than who we thought we were, and we were back to the past all over again.

"So, let me get the full Tracy V review," Nate said smiling. "Try and interpret the song like how you did with 7:05 all those years ago."

I nodded, my finger poking my chin. "Alright... I Gotta Find You... Sounds a lot like you wanna find someone."

Nate laughed. "Obviously."

I smiled. "I suppose it depends on the situtation, huh."

He nodded. "Yeah... Rather than finding the person psychically, it's more like... trying to find the right feelings. In my case anyway."

"Ah," I said, nodding and crossing my leg. "Either way this girl must be lucky... that song's way different from your old songs, if you know what I mean." Well I was telling the truth. That song explained a lot, it explained our... relationship with eachother. Unlike the lyrics 'can't find the words to say' you definitly know the right words."

Nate looked down embarassingly, smiling.

"Let me ask you something," I said, adjusting my position on my seat.

"Sure, go ahead," Nate told me, sitting back up.

"Did you really write that right after we spent the evening together?" I noticed him blush yet again. "Unlike the lyrics 'can't find the words to say' you definitly know the right words to put into a song. Because, it sounds a lot like... a love song."

"You can say that," Nate finnlay spoke up. "Our best-friend night the other day kinda inspired me and the song just came to me I guess."

I smiled. "You're just saying that to avoid the truth."

"That's only half the reason," Nate said, making us both laugh. This conversation was beginning to sound like the one at my first dance. I remember saying the exact same thing.

"Seriously," I said. "What inspired you to write that song, Nate?"

He sighed. "Tracy haven't you figured it out yet?"

"I'm sorry to say I'm completely oblivious."

"What? Do you want me to admit it?"

"Well that'd be helpful considering that I'm clueless."

"It was you."

I blinked, not able to come up with a quick reply like I previously had. "Me?"

"Yes you," he said poking me in the shoulder, like how I punch him in the arm. I smiled at that "Back home, you know how I fall for girls easily?"

I rolled my eyes. "Yeah, I called you a playboy a lot."

"You did?"

"... Again what were you saying?"

He laughed. "Anyway, now that I know I'm a vampire, now that everyone knows it, I don't think I'm gonna be treated the same once I go back home to America, let alone get anymore normal dates."

I rested my hand on top of his. "No matter what happens to me, even if I have to stay here in Ronovia, always expect for me to be one of the girls that will still treat you the same. Doesn't matter if you're not human. I like you for you."

He looked me in the eye. "Even if I was a frog?"

I laughed at his little attempt of a joke. "If I kiss you will you turn back into my prince charming?"

"Maybe," he said teasingly.

I smiled. "Then I guess these are the good sides to having a boy-girl-best-friend-relationship." Yup, definitly a deja vu of the 7th grade dance.

We heard the midnight church bells, coming from up here on the roof. The loudness scared us to death from shock and we fell down on the ground, me at the bottom, and him on top. Instead, unlike in the flashback, his lips didn't land on mine. Though, our faces were really close. All I could feel at the moment was our steady breathing and our heartbeats. We were so close I could hear his heatbeat.

"So... you really like being in a boy-girl-best-friend-relationship," Nate said, continuing our conversation.

I nodded nervously. "You could say that."

He gave me a look, not moving still. "You're saying something."

"No I'm not," I said with a stuborn look.

"Really then," Nate said with that cocky smile. "Let's try this again. You say you like me for me, even if I was a frog. Maybe I'll turn into your prince charming if you kiss me."

I arched my eyebrow. "Do you want me to kiss you?"

"Maybe," he said in a flirteous manner. "Last time this happened, we kissed no choice. Now, we have a choice."

I made a small smile. "I seem to have a choice in a lot of things," I said quietly.

"Well, Tracy, make a choice right now."

I looked back up at him with hopeful eyes. "I think we're making the same choice."

I slowly wrapped my arms around his neck as he gently pressed his lips over mine. This may not have been our first kiss, but was definitely an awesome kiss. He slid his tongue into my mouth, exploring it for the first time. And I did the same with his. Eventually, we slowly broke apart for air, starring into eachother's eyes.

"You were right," I said, him still on top of me. "I do see my prince charming."

He smiled. "And I see a beautiful princess who finally got her happy ending."

We sat up and finally and enjoyed the view of the night-time Ronovia, holding hands. And remember that one star in the sky during the first dance? Here, there were a bunch of stars up in the sky. And I could have made a wish on every single one of them. But, I'd say all my wishes have been granted. And to think, my best friend since we were 3, who turned out to be a vampire, bit me, ran away from me, and, in the end, kissed me. Hard to believe right? And that wish did come true after all. This was some heck of an adventure.


And well, that's my story. I wrote a book, my adventures here in Ronovia and finding out who I am inside. I did it so the world would know the whole story behind it. Ever since that incident, vampires became more present, but in a kind manner. And get this, as we provide them with blood, it seems that their supposed 'Vampire Venom' was actually a real good medicine for just about anything. Weird right? So now, vampires no longer sink their fangs into the necks of humans. Us humans go to doctors to donate our blood and vampires go to doctors to donate their blood. We use theirs as medicine, they use ours as a life preserve. Works out quite well, all over the world! Not just Ronovia anymore.

And it turns out all those vampire legends about garlic and mirrors weren't all that true. And they even said that once a vampire bites a human, they turn into a vampire too. Wrong. Nick bit me. I'm still human. And, I no longer consider myself a vampire hunter. I ended that title for the Vanaia Family. And with some arangements with the Ronovia Council, I banashed the law that you had to kill vampires in order to take the throne.

Peter and Diance Gray no longer have to live in hiding. With the news of being the parents of Nate, they got a lot of fame and now live in a mansion, not to far from the palace. Rika and Aiden still live with them.

And if you haven't noticed by now, Nate and I are going out. Girlfriend and boyfriend relationship. We don't make out a lot like Nate used to do with his other girlfriends, since we're like the awkward kind. I mean, hey, we used to be best friends. And I'm still a kid inside. But, kissing Nate was amazing though. And now, we were engaged to me married. And not NOW. I mean, I'm 15! We'll get married when I'm old enough to take charge as Queen. So for a few years, Ronovia will have to deal with having a princess rule, instead of a queen. Not like that's be a problem.

And for that reason, Nate and I are still being educated, by the best teachers ever! Jasson and Elizabeth, being the adults they were, home school us. And, Elizabeth is my new official Royal Adviser, with Sarah being dust in the wind, litteraly. And you know what Shane, Nate, and I think? That Jason and Elizabeth like eachother. Oh well, with my influence, it won't be just a theory for long, hehe.

Oh yeah, Shane, Jason, and Nate live with me in the palace now. Nate couldn't bear to go back across the world now that we had rebuilt our friendship. Especialy now that we're engaged. Wow, haha, it still weirds me out to say that word, engaged. And Jason and Shane, they couldn't bear to leave either. ractically their entire family was here in Ronovia, including me. At least Shane won't have to rip apart any more pillows from boredom. I mean, we moved everything from our old house in the U.S.A to here. Even my bright red punching bag. Ha, I can never live without that thing.

And as if things couldn't get any better, I got my drivers licence! Seems that here in Ronovia, you can get your licence at 14! So ha to Shane who thought I was a bad driver... Well, I still need for Jason or Shaneto be with me when I drive. That stinks, but at least I can still trust George whenever we need to go somewhere! He's still my loyal driver after all this craziness. Awesome man.

And, I even posed for my painting to go in the hall of my ancestors. And guess what I was wearing. Yup, the same outfit I wore during the fight. Thet included my messed up hair, my scratches, my sweater with rolled up sleeves, my jean shorts, and my snow boots. In my hand was the bow and arrow, my weapon. And guess who was behind me, Shane, Jason, and Nate. Hey, they deserved to be in the painting! They helped me. And, it was the start of a new era, vampires becoming part of civilization.

And if you think me and Nate getting together is weird, look.

"Hey Tracy! Tracy!" Rika called, running to me in my bedroom.

I laughed, seeing her all happy. "Yes, Rika?"

She smiled and whispered into my ear. "Aiden kissed my cheek when I cut it. I think I like him!"

My eyes widened. Whoa, another human/vampire relationship upcoming? And those two are only 7-year olds. Oh well, it was bound to happen again sometime. But, it won't matter, since Nate will be there for me to help advise Rika and Aiden. I'm all good. Here ends my princess/vampire/ love story.
