We were driving for hours. It was past midnight and I refused to close my eyes. Bonnie fell asleep hours ago, exhausted from crying. I didn't talk to Damon but I didn't take my eyes off of him for a minute. I finally broke and talked to him so I could take my mind off how tired I was.

"Why did you tell me you sparkled?" I asked suddenly.

Damon laughed quietly. "It's been four years and you're just now asking?" he asked incredulously.

I shrugged. "It just occurred to me."

"We were going to be staying in that dreary town for a while. I needed an excuse."

"Why did we stay in Forks?" Damon didn't answer. "Do you really live off of animals?"

He smirked. "What do you think?" I shuddered and Damon's smile became more pronounce.

"Where are we going?" I asked. Damon didn't answer.

"Can Alice see us?" still no answer. I waited a few minutes.

"Can-" Damon cut me off. "Are you trying to piss me off?" he growled. "Because it's working."

"I was going to ask if we can stop. I have to pee, but it's good to know how to annoy you," I said smiling slightly. Damon huffed before pulling into a 24-hour diner. "Make it quick," I quickly woke Bonnie and we scurried off towards the diner.

"What are we going to do?" Bonnie whispered when we were in the bathroom.

I shrugged and leaned against the wall. "I don't know. We'll try to figure something out I guess." "Before he kills us," she added with a grimace. Before I could reply, my phone rang.


"Bella!" Edward cried. "Your future just reappeared! Where are you?"

"Um," I was cut off when Damon snatched the phone out of my hand. "Hello Edward," there was muffled shouting. "Now you are hardly in the right position to threaten me." I let out a soft shriek when Damon grabbed my waist and pulled me closer. "After all I have the girl and your little psychic can't see us."

Damon's head snapped towards Bonnie who was muttering something under her breath. "And if you finish that spell I'll kill her,"

I smirked. "Liar,"

He tightened his grip. "I may not can kill you but I can make it hurt." I heard more screaming coming from the phone. Damon just rolled his eyes and threw it against the wall. "Come on," he said grabbing Bonnie's arm and dragging her with us. "I want to be there by morning."

"Be where?" I asked. He glared at me. "Be where?"

"You're very demanding. I honestly don't know what Edward sees in you."

I ignored him. "Are you going to answer my question?"

"You'll find out soon enough."

He took us to Georgia.

We had just made a pass through Atlanta when he made a sharp right and started down a dirt road. We were driving down the road for a few minutes before I saw the house. It was a dilapidated two-story house. It looked like it hadn't been lived in for years. Damon stopped the car and turned to Bonnie.

"I can't bring you with us. I told him I was only going to bring one witch and he won't trust me if I come in with two,"

"He shouldn't trust you anyway," I muttered. Damon smirked at me.

"So you stay here and don't try anything. Just remember I don't have to have two witches." Bonnie gulped, but nodded. Damon looked at me and nodded towards the door. I got out without question. He was by my side before I could blink. He grabbed my arm and led me towards the house.

"You know you're a lot more compliant now," he stated conversationally.

I yawned. "I'm too tired to argue with you," he slipped his arm around my waist and rested my head around his shoulder. A really sweet gesture, especially coming from Damon. "What?" he said defensively. "I can't have you passing out on me now can I?"

When we got to the door Damon didn't knock he just barged right in. the inside didn't look much better than the outside. There was newer furniture, but that's about it. Damon led me up the stairs and flung the last door open. We walked into a cloud of smoke. A short man with red hair was lying on the bed in a robe with a bong.

"For god's sake," Damon barked. "Put that thing out. I don't want you to get her high. She's enough trouble as it is." I opened my mouth to protest but started coughing.

The man rolled his eyes. "Fine. Let's go downstairs,"

Damon sat beside me on a worn couch and pulled me close. I tried to squirm away from him. "Don't," he hissed in my ear. "He won't help if he doesn't think you came willingly. And that won't end well for either one of you," I shuddered but complied.

"So where's the book?" Damon asked. What book?

The man ignored him. "We haven't been properly introduced." He said holding out his hand to me. "I'm Dylan Thompson,"

"Isabella Swan," I said taking his hand. He brought it to his lips and I blushed.

"Okay Romeo, you've met. Where's the book?" Damon asked on the verge of loosing his pants.

"No need to get jealous vampire," Dylan said dropping my hand. "I'll be right back." There was some rustling coming from the other room. He came back with a giant book and dropped it into Damon's hands. It looked a lot like the Book of Shadows. I giggled to myself. They both looked at me strangely. "Sleep deprivation," I muttered blushing. We left shortly after that.

We ended up going to the airport. "Where are we going now?" I asked.

"Italy," Damon told me before ushering me over to the plane. Damon sat between Bonnie and me on the plane. When it took off Damon told me to sleep. I started to protest but he cut me off. "Honestly, what can I actually do on a plane?" I scowled but closed my eyes anyway.


I finally convinced Bella to go to sleep. The other witch fell asleep a little while after. After a couple of hours, Bella leaned her head on my shoulder unconsciously. I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her closer. "Mm, Edward," Bella mumbled. I growled quietly. That ass. I hate him. He doesn't deserve her. Bella is too good for a sparkly vampire. She's too beautiful, and compassionate, and…


I'm in love with her.

Yeah not sure what to say. Vote on my poll and review if you want a teaser. Oh and Dylan is Seth Green.
