Hey guys! Thanks for the reviews! Haha oh my god I absolutely hate algebra- I was fine with maths until some genius decided to put the alphabet into it. Anyway here's the next chapter! :D

Chapter Fourteen

Shit shit shit! Dimitri!

It was at that point I realised he could read my mind.

...I mean damn...um I can explain...?

"Rose, Mia. Outside. Now." He said no emotion on his face.

Aw crap.

We walked outside in silence, and Dimitri lead us to a building. Alberta's office- uh oh. We couldn't get in too much trouble- could we? As we entered the room, I saw Alberta sitting in the chair.

She looked...sad?

She looked at Dimitri.

"Why is Rose here? I needed to speak to Mia."

"Because..." he looked at me.

Please don't tell her... I'll be in shit...i pleaded through the bond.

He sighed.

"Nothing. I'm her guardian I thought she should come with me. we'll leave." He said.

Thank you thank you thank you!

Alberta shook her head. "No. Rose has now been brought into this. It concerns them both."

What the hell was she talking about?

Alberta turned to Mia.

"Your mother...the place where you parents were staying, was attacked by Strigoi. your dad is safe, he was out at the time. But your mother was turned."

Mia gasped, tears watering in her eyes.

What do you know she has a heart.

I felt sorry for her.

"That's not all. Like all Strigoi, they have a certain hatred for Janine Hathaway," I froze. "She along with other Strigoi found her and tried to ambush her. There were other guardians nearby, so they helped," Alberta looked at Mia, sadness in her eyes. "I'm so sorry- your mother is dead."

Mia had tears streaming down her cheeks.

She swallowed. "Who...Who killed her?"

Alberta hesitated. "Well I'm not sure if-"

"I have a right to know." Mia said.

She paused for a moment. "Janine Hathaway."

Mia looked at me. with pure hatred.

Perfect- and we were already on such great terms.

Alberta asked Dimitri to take me to, and he complied.

We left the building, and wandered around a bit, not speaking.

Finally, I spoke. "It was self defence by the way- she hit me. And thanks for not ratting us out."

He nodded.

"I didn't think either of you needed it at that moment."

He suddenly stopped walking, and was staring straight ahead.

He looked...shocked? there's a first.

"Dimitri what is it?" I asked him.

He didn't answer for a while, but when he did he sounded disbelieving.

"Don't you see..." he trailed off.

I looked ahead. "See what?" there was no one there.
