This is a note for everyone who reads my stories. I'm sorry if it seems like I've completely disappeared from the face of the earth, but I'm not. I've just not been able to do much since we neither have internet at home. Even worse than having your computer broken! While so, I've just been writing a lot of new stories and here is a one'shot I did. A some kind of attempt in humour.
I also apologise if I haven't been reading anyone's stories lately, nor reviewing. I think I'm going on overload at the moment. I'm following way too much stories at the moment I can't even keep up :-D Yeah..I checked my e-mail one day after a long time and I had, like 100 new messages. Over a half of them were new chapters or stories or something from Fanfiction.
But here is my new one-shot...read it...review it...enjoy it :-)
And I don't own anything.
"Rose, wake up!" I heard Lissa shout from outside my door. I groaned, turned around on my bed and buried my face on my pillow.
"Go away!" I shouted back. All I wanted was to sleep. It was the weekend and I was content to stay in bed and sleep. I hadn't gotten that much sleep in the past week.
"Get up now, or I swear I'll get Dimitri to get you up." She threatened. She must be crazy to think that Dimitri could get me up from bed. He'd probably just end up with me on it. She was still quite oblivious to our relationship just like everyone else. No one knew about us and no one could.
But nonetheless, I decided to get up. I didn't want to get Lissa mad and face the wrath of the super spirit user, who could make you do practically anything, later. I, unwillingly, got out of bed and opened the door to Lissa. She seemed pleased, mostly because she thought that her threat worked.
I headed straight for the bathroom to take a shower as Lissa seated herself on my bed, smiling at me. I took longer than necessary in the shower. I didn't want to come out. I wanted to stay here, under the warm, flowing water, lost in my own thoughts. It seemed nice until bad thoughts would drift into my mind though. I got out of the shower and got dressed into the clothes I had placed here last night. I walked out only to see Lissa talking to somebody at the door. I walked from behind her, making her flinch slightly. Apparently they didn't hear me coming. Dimitri was standing at the door, wearing his same old guardian mask. "Um, hey Dimitri. What are you doing here?"
"I just needed to talk to you, but I'll just catch up with you later." He said. We said goodbye and he left. We too left a few minutes later.
Since lunch was already over, I guess that wasn't an option anymore, so we headed up to Adrian's room in the guest housing. We were going to hang out there today. Adrian was still alone and Christian was to come soon too. There was a knock on the door, no doubt Christian.
I opened the door to find him looking like a gangster. He had the baggy pants and hat and even the bling. He looked seriously hilarious and weird. Well, I always knew there was something wrong with him anyway.
"Yo, yo yo, what up ma homies!" He said as he walked past me to the living room. He slumped down on the couch, stretching. We all stared at him, confused and pretty much shocked too. "So? Are we gonna do somthn? Or do ya wanna go check out my hizzle fo shizzle?" He asked, getting excited mentioning his fo shizzle. What the heck has gotten into this guy? I had to say though, he was a pretty bad gangsta.
"Christian?" Lissa asked carefully, "Are you okay?" By now we were all standing in front of him a bit worried.
He jumped up suddenly, making us jump back in surprise. "Of course I'm okay, yo! So you gonna come and check out ma crib or what?" He asked. It was weird; he even had the voice too.
"I think he has OCD." Adrian whispered to us.
"OCD?" I asked in disbelief.
"Yes, obsessive craziness disorder." I started laughing as did Lissa. Adrian shushed us, looking scared. "Don't you dare laugh at him." He hissed. Okay, I think something's wrong with him too. I also think he might be actually scared of him. Or maybe he's just scared of gangsters.
"Whatever." I said, holding my hands up in front of me. I turned my attention back to Christian who was picking his tooth with his finger. "Dude, what's gotten into you?" I asked him.
"Notn has gottn into me, babe. Wha? You got somthn against gangstas?" He asked, sounding a bit threatening.
"Yea, when the 'gangsta' is you." I shot back. He can't scare me. He never has and never will.
Suddenly, he pulled out a gun from inside of his jacked. Lissa yelped and Adrian surprisingly screamed. I didn't do anything. I just stared at him in disbelief. Why the heck would he have a gun when he had the element of fire?
"Wha did ya just say?" He asked, raising his voice. Truth to be told, he was starting to get a little intimidating.
"I said, 'yea, when the 'gangsta' is you." I said getting all up in his face, repeating my words in a low voice.
"That's it!" He shouted at me, taking a few steps back and pointing the gun at me.
Lissa screamed with Adrian. "What did I tell you, Rose!" He shouted at me. I just narrowed my eyes and waited to see what happens.
I was shocked when he did push the gun, but what came out shocked me more. It was a flag with a smiley face on it. "Ha! April fool's!" He shouted at us. "Wasn't I awesome? You guys totally believed me!" He kept shouting. We were all just staring at him wide eyed. Then it hit me.
"April fool's?" I asked in disbelief. "Isn't it April the 1st? The last time I checked it was March the 31th." I said matter of factly.
"No it isn't! It's April the 1st!" He said. He got out his cell and showed the screen to us where it said April 1st. "See?" He said as it was obvious.
"What the heck?" I screamed. "I have never missed one April fool's day in my life. There's no way it's today!" I shouted, sounding frustrated. But it can't be today!
"Believe it or not, yes, yes it is." He said sounding pleased with himself. I growled and crossed my arms across my chest, not pleased with myself. "Ha-ha, April fool's!" He shouted again suddenly, making us flinch.
"What the heck?" I screamed at him, now really frustrated.
"It's not really April fool's day, it's tomorrow!" He shouted, laughing. I threw a punch at him, but he managed to dodge barely.
"It's you who's the fool here!" I shouted in his face.
"I suggest Christian as the fool of the year." Adrian suggested, raising his hand.
I raised my hand too. "I agree." I said. Christian stuck out his tongue at us and grumbled something incoherent.
We heard laughing from the hallway and I shushed everyone to be quiet. Not surprised at all, it sounded as if Jesse and Ralf were there. I tiptoed to the door and when I reached it, I opened it as fast as I could, revealing two idiots on the ground. They fell as I opened the door. "Do you think this is funny?" I shouted at them. "Do that again and you'll be sorry you were ever born." I growled at them. Terrified, they both scattered off down the hallway. They first both went different ways, but Jesse turned halfway and followed Ralf. We all laughed at them as I closed the door behind me.
"Sorry guys. I think they both used compulsion on me so I would do this."
"It's okay, snuggle puss." Lissa said, giving him a peck on the lips. Adrian and I were trying so hard to not laugh.
"Snuggle puss?" I asked and coughed. They both glared and ignored me.
"Yo, Adrian! Can ya hook me up wih sum clothes?" Christian asked Adrian.
"Not if you talk like tha." Adrian said back to him. We all laughed again as Adrian went to his dresser to get Christian something else to wear.
Hmm...Tomorrow is April fool's day. I'd have to prank Dimitri. I think I have some planning to do.
The next day at training;
"Hey, Comrade!" I yelled from the door as I walked in. He was leaning on the back wall, twirling a stake in his hands.
"How many times I have to tell you not to call me that." He said as he pushed himself off the wall and walked towards me to the middle of the gym where I was standing.
"You can't, because I won't stop calling you that." I said and grinned at him. He sighed and shook his head disapprovingly. He threw the stake at me and I caught it with no avail. "So what we doing today?" I asked and threw my things to the side.
"We aren't doing anything. You are going to train your staking."
"Oh, come on. Can we at least spar just a little?" I asked with my puppy dog eyes. It seemed to work since he looked thoughtful for a moment. He sighed in defeat and nodded. I think I saw a little smile play on his lips as he turned around and leaned back onto the back wall, watching me as I started staking the dummies. That was the second best part of my trainings, especially staking the dummy with the Auburn red hair.
I did this for a while until Dimitri approved and called it quits. "We can spar now if you want." He said to me with a loving smile I didn't get to see much during the day.
I grinned wickedly back, which made him laugh. Let the show begin.
We faced each other on the mat in the middle of the gym and got ready to fight. "So," I started, "Do you want to be the Guardian or the Strigoi?" I asked with a grin. I've been smiling a lot and laughing ever since we let our walls down with each other. I've been happy.
"Guardian, of course." She said. "The Strigoi always dies." She said in a low voice, supposed to sound scary and smirked at me.
She lunged at me before I could manage to say anything else. She surprised me and got a kick to my abdomen. I let out a little huff noise and stumbled backwards a little. She smirked again. I composed myself quickly and got ready for the next attack she made. She tried to throw a punch at me, but I grabbed her hand and flipped her over. She fell back first on the floor and growled. She got up quickly to my surprise and made a high kick that landed straight to my face. I almost fell, but managed to stay up. I kicked her in the stomach and she fell on the floor on her knees. She screamed in pain and held her hands on her stomach. I panicked.
"Rose. Roza, are you alright? What happened?" She didn't answer me; she just screamed her lungs out.
"It hurts, it hurts so much." She cried. Her eyes started to fill up with tears.
"I'll bring you to the infirmary." I murmured with concern. I picked her up in my arms and carried her tiny figure across campus. I pushed opened the door to the infirmary and right on cue, Dr. Olendzki walked in.
"What happened now?" She asked exasperated as she walked towards us.
"I think she's hurt." I told her. She motioned for me to follow her to a room. I lay her down on the hospital bed. She told me to tell her what happened and I did. "We were in training and were sparring. I kicked her in the stomach and she just fell and started screaming in pain." I explained. She nodded and told me to wait outside as she ran a few tests on her. I waited impatiently outside for her to finish and call me back in. A few minutes later she did. I walked in to see Rose sitting on the bed looking a little better. "So?" I asked.
"Guardian Belikov...Rose..." She started hesitantly, "Rose, I think you might be pregnant. That might be the reason it hurt so much when you got kicked in the stomach." She explained.
"What?" Rose shrieked, "No, no! I can't be pregnant! What about me being a guardian, being Lissa's guardian! I can't protect her if I am pregnant! This can't be..." She ended her rant in a low whisper, almost inaudible.
"She's...she's pregnant?" I asked, shocked. How can she be pregnant? It couldn't be me. We only were together once and Dhampirs can't have children together. Unless...unless she has been with someone else. I bet it was that Moroi Ivashkov. No, I don't think Rose would do it. She loves me, I know she does. Maybe Ivashkov used compulsion on her? I don't know, but I'm going to kill that man nonetheless. I was brought back from my murder planning to hear Rose crying. She was holding onto her knees and was crying. Dr. Olendzki was trying to soothe her, but it didn't work. I walked over to her and wrapped my arms around her and tried to comfort her. Soon her crying turned into laughter. I pulled back in confusion to see her laughing her head off. I turned my gaze on Olendzki only to see her looking amused. "What's going on here?" I asked, confused.
"April fool's!" Rose shouted right into my face. I was only mad for a fraction of a second and cooled off and smiled instead of being mad at her. "Gotcha." She said and grinned wickedly at me.
I gave a small, humorous laugh. "You sure did, Rose." I said.
"Thanks Dr. Olendzki for helping out." Rose said to her.
"No problem, Rose." She said and left the room.
I turned back to Rose and frowned a bit. "You do realize I was really worried, don't you?" I asked her.
She sighed and leaned her head on my chest. "I know." She murmured.
I sat down next to her and wrapped my arms around her. "I was already planning murder on Ivashkov thinking he was the one to knock you up." I murmured, grimacing slightly.
She chuckled. "Oh, Dimitri. I would never be with anyone else but you." She said lovingly.
"Oh, I know, that's why I thought he used compulsion on you or something worse." I said again. She laughed and looked up to meet my eyes. She reached up and kissed my lips lightly. I pulled her back to me and kissed her forehead.
Roza is mine. I swear, if anyone even tries anything with her, they will regret it. But with Ivashkov…well, I might just kill him.
