Hi, all! How are you? Okay, so, this takes place 18 years after SK, but instead of Dimitri Awakening, he takes Tasha's offer. I know, it's been done too many times to count. But mine is different. Mine's has-drum roll-Aqua! The beginning is too sad for words. It takes place when Dimitri first leaves. Rose is on her way to practice, accompanied by Aqua. So, ON WITH THE HEARTBREAK!
Disclaimer: I don't... oh forget it. You guys are just a bunch of Dorrys.

Rose POV

I was walked to practice with Aqua, who was trying to make me spill about the cabin.

"Come on, Rose! Just give me a numer between 1 and 10. Pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaase?" I glance at her and regreted it. She had on one of her world famous puppy dog pouts. Her bottom lip was pouted and her big blue eyes were even bigger. I sighed.

"Fine. 20," I said.

"Damn. That good?" she asked.

"Infinity and beyond," I said.

"Good for you. Your first time was an enjoyable one," she said.

"We are so dropping this," I said. She rolled her eyes.

"Whatever. I'll be sure to tell him your rating," she said.

"Fine. He already knows it," I said slyly.

"From the sounds you were making, I have to agree," she said. I blushed. She could see wards and was taking a strole along them when me and Dimitri were in the cabin.

"Again, I say drop it," I said.

"Okay, okay. But when are you going to tell Lissa?" she asked.

"When I fell like it," I joked.

"Now that's cold," she commented. We walked in to see a very nervous and sad looking Dimitri. He looked up and then back down when he saw it was us.

"Who died?" I asked sarcastically. "But seriously, what's wrong?"

"Rose, I have to tell you something," he said in a whisper.

"Well, go ahead," I said. "It can't be that bad." Dimitri took a deep, readying breath.

"I'm taking Tasha's offer," he said in a rush. Me and Aqua stared at him in disbeleif.

"You're lying, aren't you?" I asked.

"No, Rose, I'm not," he said. I stood up and punched him square in the jaw. "Fuck!" He rubbed his jaw, which was now red. "I guess I deserved that, huh?"

"Да, черт возьми, ты сделал! А теперь убирайся, сука (Damn right, you did! Now get out, bitch)!" I yelled at him. He stared at me in shock. "Oh yeah. That's right. Aqua taught me Russian. Now do as I told you to before I do something I will not regret!" He got the message and ran out of the gym. I broke down, falling to my knees and sobbing into my hands. Aqua sank down next to me and held me in her small but strong arms. I cried into her shoulder. She didn't seem to care that I was staining her blouse. She just held me like the big sister she was to me.

"Roza, it's okay. We'll get through this. Together," she said. I smiled up at her.

"Thanks, Aqua. You're the big sister I never had," I said. She hugged me tighter.

"Let's take off of practice today," she said. "We'll just stay in my room until school starts, 'kay?" I nodded and we stood up. I wiped my face as best I could and we walked out. Luckily, no one was outside, seeing as it was still bedtime. She was able to get me up to her room. She went into her seemingly endless stash of nail polish and then her other endless stash of snacks.

"So, what color? Red, pink, purple, blue, so on?" she asked.

"Red. Can you put a design on them, seeing as you're a genius at beauty," I said.

"Sure thing, Rosie," she said and set to work. I sat back and let her do whatever with my nails. I was watching Malcomn in the Middle when she finished.

"Done," she said. I looked at my nails and my eyes got wide. They weren't red. They were actually blue. The designs alternated between a hand giving the peace sign and rhinestones going diaginally. I gaped at her.

"You amaze me sometimes," I said. She smiled.

"I know." She flipped her short curls. We let them sit as Aqua sat behind me, doing what she pleased with my hair. I was too relaxed to care. Then Aqua's hands froze and went slack. I reached back and took her hands out of my hair so I could turn to look at her. Her face was dead blank. Crap, she's in Alex's head.

"Aqua, snap out of it," I said, shaking his shoulders. No movement. "Oh, great. I need you and you go to your husband instead. What a sister." I waited. About 10 minutes later, she came back to. "Jeeze, can't he keep his emotions in check?" She jumped up.

"Christian got hurt," she said.

"What? How?" I asked.

"He was training and he set his clothes on fire," she said. We ran down to the clinic. Lissa was in the waiting room, crying.

"Shhhh," I said, sitting down next to her and hugging her. She looked at me.

"They said he'll make it," she said.

"That's good, right? Or you have a constant urge to choak him now, too?" I asked. She giggled weakly.

"It's good, but I just, I don't know, want to heal him. They won't let me, though," she said.

"Liss, I have something to tell you," I said, figuring that since Dimitri was leaving, I would need more than one friend to help me out. I told her everything, from when we were first brought back to the day's earlier events. She stared at me in disbelief as anger, hurt, and saddness came to me through the bond. One emition stood out the most. Betrayal.

"Why didn't you tell me before?" she half whispered, half yelled. "I'm your best friend! You didn't trust me?"

"I do trust you, Liss. I just..." I trailed off, trying to find the words to explain myself. " I didn't really trust anyone with it."

"Then why does Aqua know?" she asked. She thought I loved Aqua more.

"Dimitri told her, not me."

"And Adrian?"

"He found out on his own," I said.

"But you could have denied it!" She pushed me away. Aqua had been silent throughout the entire time she we were in the waiting room. "Get out." I bearly heard Lissa. "Both of you, get out! I never want to see you two again! You're horrible best friends!" I looked at Aqua, who was now shaking with quiet sobs and her face was streaked with tears.

"Wish granted," she said and was gone in 2 seconds. I ran after her. I knew what she was thinking. We should just leave, like Lissa wants us to. What Lissa wants, Lissa gets. We ran into our rooms and packed all of our clothes and belondings up. By the time I got out, Aqua was in the hallway, along with Alex and Frankie.

"Let's go," she said. "I called Alberta. She figured you'd want to leave after Dimitri left, so she's giving us one of her old homes in California." I nodded and we went downstairs. We waited for about 20 minutes before the school's private jet was ready for boarding. When we got on, it took 10 minutes before we lifted off and then 20 more minutes before the headache hit. I hissed in pain and held my head like it was going to fall off. Aqua, who was hugging Alex in the seats across the aisle, saw me and came over to squat in front of me. She turned on her complussion.

"Sleep," she said. I was out like a light bulb. When I woke up, we were in California. The headache was gone, thank God.

"Please remember all of your bags and trash on your way out. Thank you," the flight atendant said. I got my carry on and got off the plane, followed by Alex, Aqua, and Frankie. As soon as the warm sun hit me, I felt so good. I need a good tan.

So, from there, everything played out. Alberta visited as often as possible. Then about a week after we arived in California, I found out I was pregnant. With twins. Guess who the dad was. You never will. Dimtri! How is this possible? I'm guessing it has something to do with being shadow kissed. We all got jobs, Aqua a model, Alex a self-defense instructor, and me a model along side of Aqua. We made quite the team.

I always hoped I would never see Dimitri or Lissa again. But then there was the part of me that still loved them. Oh, who am I kidding? I loved them all over. But I still didn't want to see them. Dimitri obviously didn't give a shit and Lissa is the one that told me I left. No one knew I had babies except me, Aqua, Alex, Frankie, Alberta, and Sydney, who I met a year after we moved here when we had killed some Strigoi. She was an Alchemist, a human who dispose of Strigoi. We had become quite close.

Well, I guess Fate is a huge bitch because one day, I saw the two people I both never wanted to and longed to see.

Damnit.

18 years later

"Guys! Get the hell down here before I come and get you!" I screamed up to my daughters, Angel and Annessa, Annie for short.

"Okay, okay!" they said in unison, coming down the steps. We lived in Alberta's old home in Los Angles, California. You'd be surprised at how much good the extra sun did for my skin. Me and Aqua were currently models for Dhamp Stylez magazine, a magazine full of fashion for dhampir women that didn't become Guardians. We also posed for posters and so on. We had changed some in appearence. For example, my hair now has blond streaks and Aqua's is the same when we left, but her curls were longer.

"That goes for you, too, Frankie!" Aqua called up. Frankie came down the steps, setting her guitar down against the wall. She towered over her mother, getting her height from Alex.

"Mom, it doesn't start for another two hours. Calm down," Frankie said.

"I swear you got your technicalities from your father," Aqua said. I laughed.

"What was that?" Alex asked, coming up from behind and wrapping his arms around Aqua's neck. She smiled.

"Oh, nothing," she said. "Mr. Technicality."

"Now that's offensive," he said. "It's so weird how you can be 40 and still act 18," he said. She bonked him on the head.

"You say that like 40 is old for us," she said.

"Point taken," he said. "We have new neighbors."

"Oh, good. We should meet them afterwards," she said. Alex nodded.

"Okay then. Who's cooking breakfast?" I asked.

"Not you," Aqua said and laughed. "I'll cook." She un wrapped Alex's arms from around her neck, went into the kitchen, and started trying to get the Shake N' Pour pancake mix at the top shelf, unsuccessfully, I must add. Alex chuckled and went behing her, picking her up. She grabbed the mix and he put her back down.

"Thank you," she said. She put water in the big yellow container, closed it and shook. Well, more like spasmically vibrated it. She was done in seconds. She got a pan out and poured 4 circles of the batter onto it, setting the stove to the right tempeture. She had to make 3 batches, 2 for each of us. She, being her, had to add something to it. Cinnamon. I loved them and finished in 3 minutes flat.

"Didn't like 'em?" Aqua asked in mock disappointment.

"Nope. They were too sweet and delicious," I said. She slumped.

"Damn. I tried to make them taste gawd aweful," she said. I laughed at her.

"Try putting your husband's socks in it next time. They rock," I said. Aqua laughed.

"Sure do," she said, high-fiving me. Hey, we may be full grown women with teenaged daughters, but we were still kids.

"If you two are done making a conversation at my expense, I'll wash the dishes," Alex said, taking everyone's plates.

"Thank you, babe," Aqua said. We sat and watched AMV. We cracked up at this one where a guy programed an audio link to play the sound of a machine gun when a shortcut was clicked, because his friend asked him to fix it. Oh, he fixed it alright. When it was about 7, we left. Aqua had bought all of us cars, including the twins, who were 17 and Frankie, who was 18. We were taking Aqua's car, a convertible Mercedes Benz CL. It was black and sleek and shiny. We loved to ride in it because it just felt so... 90210-ish. Aqua climbed in the driver's seat, Alex in shotgun, me in the back next to the twins and then Frankie sitting on the backs of the chairs. We knew she wouldn't lose her grip, even with Aqua "Need-For-Speed" Montego at the wheel. About halfway through, when we got to a red light, the twins and I climbed up with her. When Aqua started the car back up, we yelled, "Wooohooo!" at the rush of the warm air flowing through our hair. The twins' hair was the color of mine, but their eyes were Dimitri's. They had my body and face, though, but they still reminded me of him.

"You guys are having a major speed rush," Aqua commented. I kicked the back of her seat. "You're gonna regret that." Uh-oh. She started swerving back and forth, making us 4 scream. She stopped.

"Okay, I give," I said in a shaky voice.

"Rose, of all the things that could hurt you, you think I would? I'm offended," she said in mock hurt.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah," I said. We spent the rest of the ride singing to whatever they played on 102.7 KIIS FM, our favorite station.

"I know a place
Where the grass is really greener
Warm, wet and wild
There must be something in the water
Sippin' gin and juice
Laying underneath the palm trees
The boys
Break their necks
Try'na to creep a little sneak peek
(at us)

"You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To the golden coast
Once you party with us
You'll be falling in love
Oooooh Oh Oooooh

"California girls man
I really wish you all could be
California girls."

They play "California Gurls" by Katy Perry every single day, just for the fun of it, seeing as we're in the CA. By the time we finished singing, we had already been in the parking lot for about 30 seconds. We heard some laughing and cheers as we got out. A teenaged girl dhampir ran up to me, magazine in hand. I smiled and signed it. She smiled hugely and went to show her friends. We were kind of the front page girls and were celebrities to dhampir girls like Tyra Banks was to human girls. We walked in and went backstage.

Here we go.

Okay, so, none of the others have came into the story yet, but they will. Who should go first? The twins who combine ballet with street, Frankie, who will sing "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus, Rose, who sings either "Ur So Gay" by Katy Perry, or "Why Don't You Love Me" by Beyonce, or Aqua, who sings "Ridin' Solo" by Jason Jerulo. There's actually a surprise ending to hers that I'm not telling you about. But I was also thinking that either Rose or Aqua could sing "Halo" by Beyonce. Maybe even both as a duet. If there are any other songs that they should sing, please, do tell. Okay, so, please tell me what you think! Love you all!

Love,
Ashley
