Spokane—Dimitri's POV

When Rose, Mason, Eddie, Christian and Mia go missing at the ski lodge, what was going through Dimitri's mind? And what happens when he knows they're captured by Strigoi?

This has been done a hundred times but trust me....this one is different

I hope :S

Chapter 1

'To break someone's heart.' She replied, studied me for a minute, and walked back inside.

I watched as she made her way into the door. Sighing, I put my head in my hands.

Why did love have to be so unreasonable? Why did I have to fall for my 17 year old student? Why couldn't I be in love with Tasha? It would be so easy to spend the rest of my life with her.

After a few minutes of watching the scenery, I got up and started to make my to the room she was staying in. Before I got there however, I saw Rose talking to a guardian whom I knew she had never spoken to in her life. Weird. I shook it off and continued to look for Tasha.

I found her in the feeder's room, talking to a non-royal Moroi who I'd seen at Priscilla Voda's banquet. He had argued that Moroi should be taught how to fight with magic. As I got closer I caught on to what he was saying.

'I'm just saying that they shouldn't get angry at people who want to put their magic to better use.' The guy said, frustrated.

Tasha smiled. 'I know, they just don't seem to get it—Oh, hi Dimka.' She said, realising I was there.

'Hi,' I said. 'Can I, um, talk to you for a minute.' I asked. I nodded to the Moroi guy she was talking to.

'Sure. I'll talk to you later Peter.' She said, waving to the man.

I led her to a quiet part of the room. 'Tasha, I really like you and you're a good friend to me but...... I can't be your guardian.' I said.

She studied me for a second. 'I know Dimka. It's because of Rose isn't it?'

I froze. How did she know? 'No, it's because of me.' I said, a little too nervously.

She shook her head. 'Don't worry Dimka. Your secret's safe with me. I've known for a while. It's not like you can help who you fall in love with.' As she said this, she glanced briefly over to Peter, who was now having an in-depth conversation with a feeder. About what, I have no idea. 'I've seen the way you look at each other. And it's hard to miss that Rose has started to have a slight vendetta against me.'

I stared at her in shock. When I didn't reply she turned to face me. 'I'm not going to tell anyone. Just be careful and keep Lissa safe.'

'Thanks Tasha.' I said, immensely glad to see that what I'd told her hadn't effected her that much. After a few more minutes, we parted ways. She went over to talk to Peter, and I made my way through the long hallways. I wasn't too sure how long I was walking around aimlessly but I soon noticed Lissa walking around frantically. I was about to see what was wrong and if I could help her with anything when someone called my name.

'Belikov!' I turned around to the sound of Alberta's voice. She was the captain of the guardians at St Vladimir's Academy.

'Yes?' I asked. The look in her eyes was not good.

'Guardian Denz was found lying unconscious at the North gate. We don't think there are any Strigoi but we need to do a head count of all the students.'

A shiver ran up my spine and I immediately thought of Rose. She's fine. I told myself. Rose wouldn't just run away. At least not without taking Lissa with her. And I had seen Lissa not 30 seconds ago. Rose was fine.

At least, that's what I hoped.

Okay if I get 1 review I'll update!!
