"Hey." Kylee said the next day. It was Saturday so we were at the Dairy Barn. The Dairy Barn is a frozen yogurt shop we got a job at. Aubrie works at the Ye Olde Pizza Parlor. Brendan and Garrick work at an ice cream stand and a churro stand at the Dolphin Park. Jesse works at a local fashion company. Jake teaches kids how to play baseball. And Seth teaches yoga classes at the Plaza Hotel. It's really surprising we have time for ourselves.
"Hey Kylee," I answered. "You know, Garrick has been acting really weird lately. And, he's been spying on me!"
"Seriously? Maybe he likes you." She answered in a lovey-dovey tone.
"Yeah right!" I nearly screamed. But then I knew I had to lower my voice. "Everyone knows he likes Aubrie."
"Oh yeah," Kylee said unknowingly. "Well, anyway, how is he acting weird?" she asked leaning against the counter.
"He was digging in his hard and found some old diary that says in 2010 an evil force will come and take over the world."
"Aliens!" Kylee screamed.
"There aren't aliens Kylee!" I replied.
"That's just what they want you to think!"
I rolled my eyes and went to the frozen yogurt machine and put some in a bowl for me. Then I walked over to the cash register and put a one dollar bill in.
"If you're having double chocolate, you'll be needing this." Kylee said as she held out a spoon just inches from my face.
"Thanks." I replied as I took the spoon and started eating. Not long after I took the first bite, Kylee had gotten some strawberry twist fro-yo for herself.
"So what do you think Garrick was doing digging in his yard?" Kylee asked with a mouthful of yogurt.
"Who knows? Its Garrick we're talking about here, he does a bunch of pointless things."
"Like that time he acted like a dog on that field trip and peed on a bunch of trees like a dog? And that time he brought dog treats to school and ate them all? And that time he was chasing his own butt in gym class?" Kylee asked.
"Exactly," I said. "So who knows what trouble he's trying to get into!"
"Hey," Kylee started. "Don't you think it's weird how Garrick and all his friends are all interested in dog stuff?"
"I guess," I said. "But they are weird. So it's not really a big shocker."
"I guess you're right. Anyway, time to close up. See you tomorrow." Kylee said as she walked out the door.
~Sunday Night: Lexi's Dream~
Rage exploded through me like a bomb.
It was dark and cold and I couldn't see anything except a pale figure ready to pounce on me. The figure had fangs, and blood dripping down its cheeks.
Then the figure lunged at me and its icy cold skin scratched my cheek and I could feel the blood dripping down.
Then the figure looked thirsty. Thirsty for my blood. And I could hear it mutter a few words.
I sat up strait as I gasped in horror. And as I looked around the room I saw Garrick sitting on my window looking at me like I was crazy.
"Garrick?!" I whispered. "What are you doing here?!"
"I told you." He said. "I need your help."
"Help with what?"
He looked grim as he walked towards my bed.
"Do you believe in werewolves?" he asked me in a calm voice. I could tell he was tired.
"Werewolves? That's just a legend!"
He sighed as he shook his head. "No," he said. "They're not. In fact, our families are descendants of wolves."
I could hardly breathe. Was this one of his stupid pranks?
"So, why do you need my help then?" I said in a frantic voice.
"The evil force that diary was talking about," he started. "Is vampires. We need all the other werewolf kids in the world to join in and stop the vampires. And I was thinking you could help me start a website. But we'll also need help from our friends."
"They're werewolves too?" I asked in disbelief.
"Yup, so first thing tomorrow morning, you all have to meet me at the old abandoned farm house, got it?"
"S-sure." I said, and then he jumped out the window.
The rest of the night I couldn't sleep.
