A/N: Ok so this is my first fanfic. I don't think its going to be any good because i suck at writing. I usually just babble on and on. So hopefully this doesn't turn out to be, like fifty chapters.

Just to give you some info that you might want to know about my story line.

-Rose is now twenty. After she graduated from the Academy she moves away to try and make a different life away from being a guardian.

-Lissa turned down the chance to become queen and chose to be the new headmistress at the Academy.

-Adrian is teaching kids that have specialized in spirit how to use it and stay sane at the same time.

-Christian is now teaching fire users how to use their magic against a strigoi in battle.

-Mia is teaching Moroi students how to use physical combat against strigoi.

-Eddie teaches Novices how to fight, he is the second highest guardian at the Academy.

-Dimitri, (He survived the attack), is now head guardian at the academy.

I own nothing except the plot... its all belong to the wonderful and talented Richelle Mead.

Thank you to my Beta, Kitty XD Enjoy

Chapter One: Back to Hell

It was a week after I turned 20 that I got the call. It was the call that lead me to be on this plane. The call that brought back all those memory that I had tried my hardest to store in the back of my mind. It was the call that was bringing me back to the Academy.

Lissa called me-which I wasn't expecting- to ask me for probably one of the biggest favours.

"Rose could you come back to the Academy and teach some classes to the novices?"

"I- ah. What?"

"Please Rose, one of our guardians just got taken to protect someone from the Zeklos Family. So that means we're down a guardian to teach some of the combat classes. Please?"

I hadn't expected that. "But liss I haven't been a guardian for nearly two whole years" Rose said stunned.

"Have you been training?" asked Lissa.

"Yea a little bit, but nothing compared to what I used to do back at the Academy. Why?"

"Oh that is great! So you will still be fit to train novices." Lissa said excitedly .

"I don't know liss, I have been trying my hardest for two years to forget about that place. I cant just waltz back in there like nothing happened." As Rose said this, dozens of little pictures danced across her eyes. Stupid memories.

"Oh please Rose. For me" She pleaded.

"Alright fine Lissa, I'll do it. But I cant promise you that I will be any good. When do I leave?"

"YAY!! " Screamed Lissa down the phone. "I'll send a plane out to you tomorrow morning. Where are you?"

"Tomorrow?! Why so early?"

"'Cause we need to get these classes started again as soon as possible."

"Are you serious? I live in Chicago. What time will I need to be ready by?"

"Ten in the morning, your time. It will be a 3 and a half hour flight. You will arrive a few hours before classes start, that way you can get some sleep before you start your first shift."

"Ok Liss. Anything else?"

Lissa and I spoke for a couple more minutes after that. She told me where the plane will be waiting for me and that I will be doing my first four shifts. Then I'll meet up with Liss while the kids have lunch. She said that i then wont be needed till the kids have finished all subjects for the day. Then I do on a sic hour shift walking around the school, keeping kids in line, that sorta stuff.

The joys of being a guardian. I had finally thought that i had gotten away from it all, but like usual it all came right back around and bites me in the ass.

The more I thought about it, the more excited I got. Only one thing keeping me from being ecstatic. Dimitri.

The main reason I left. The bain of my existence. Yea that sounds mean, but I either love him or i hate him, and seeing as I don't love him the only option left is to hate him. There is no middle ground. Not for me anyway.

But I'm going to have to get over that, i have to face him sooner or later. I was just hoping it would be later. Oh well.

Back to the Academy. Or hell for me. What joy.
