This fan fiction is based off of the ridiculously large amount of love that I hold in my heart for Myrnin…..and Rachel Caine, but mostly Myrnin. XD please review and tell me if you think I should continue!

"And that children is why we don't mix rubidium with water. Okay pick up the professor's notes on your way out of class and I will see you next Thursday." The T.A. says, signaling for us to leave.

I look down at my watch, it reads 4:50. Okay good so I have enough time to get a bagel from Common Grounds before I get to Myrnin's lab. God forbid I arrive late; Myrnin's been awfully testy lately. It's like if I'm ten seconds late he flips. Hell, even if I'm ten seconds early he still gets mad. That man- or should I say, vampire? But when he's not in a mood he's just about the sweetest guy I know, not including Michael who is definitely the sweetest guy on the planet. He's also a lot cuter when he's not throwing a fit. The way the skin around his eyes crinkles up when he laughs, the way his chocolate brown curls bounce in front of his face, the beautiful smile he makes with his cute, oh so kissable lips-whoa. Okay Claire what the heck was up with that? Kissable lips? Hello, Myrnin is your boss and you're his lowly lab assistant. Also you've got Shane: handsome, hot, sexy, sweet. You've been dating him for like six months now, does that ring a bell.

"Um hello miss? A voice says, interrupting my thought. I look up, the voice belongs to the T.A. who is now standing in front of me. "You've been standing here for a few minutes and I hate to interrupt your train of thought, but I'm leaving and I've got to lock up so…..."his sentence trails off.

"Oh no, I'm so sorry sir," I say grabbing my huge backpack as I speak, 'and have a good week." I'm heading out the door and my phone buzzes in my pocket. I grab it out of my pocket and unlock it.

New message front Shane: Hey where are you? I've got to work late today so ummm I guess I'll see you later.

I finish reading the message as I reach the Common Grounds. I open the door and head straight for the store room. No bagel for Claire, my stomach growls in protest. I wave at Eve as I pass the counter and motion to Oliver where I'm headed. He doesn't much enjoy the fact that I'm allowed to use the portals whenever and wherever I please, but Amelie said I could and she's law around here.

I open the store room door and close it behind me. I begin to imagine Myrnin's lab: the ever present old book smell, the stacks of old books everywhere to go with the old book smell, the ratty old couch in the corner of the room I sit on when I wait for Myrnin. I feel a shift in the room, step forward, and feel the all-too-familiar tugging sensation of going through a portal.

"Well hello there Claire I'm glad that you decided to join us today." Myrnin says and I open my eyes to see the lab in its familiar, looks like a bomb exploded self. I look down at my watch-5:00.

"Dear Myrnin I'm here to inform you that it's 5:00 and I am not late. This message was delivered lovingly by Claire Danvers, your amazingly amazing lab assistant."

"Oh. Is it? I was sure that the clock said nine o'clock,' Myrnin says gesturing to a, might I add, ridiculously old looking clock that probably hasn't worked since the 17th century. 'Righto then we must be getting started, you've got a lot to learn today Claire." He grabs two books and begins heading towards the couch. As I sit down he hands me a book with a strange sort of eye shaped symbol of the cover.

"Good." With that I say the last word for the next three hours.

GGGRRWLLLLL. I look away from the book in my lap to my stomach. Myrnin does the same, with a slightly puzzled look on his face.

"Hungry.' I mumble 'I didn't have time to eat anything before coming here, sorry."

"Little Claire, one must never apologize for being hungry. I think we've done enough studying for today so I was wondering if you would like to get something to eat with me. I know this amazing little Italian place, Gianni's. Ever heard of it?' I shake my head 'Well they have the best pene all'arrabbiata in Morganville, if I do say so myself."

"I have no idea what that is, but it sounds delicious. Just let me text Shane and tell him I'll be home late.

Hey cutie I'm going to be home late today too, I'm eating out with Myrnin. Just thought you ought to know, love you.

"Okay I'm ready Myrnin." And with that he grabs my hand and we walk through the newly formed portal.

How is it? Huh? Again please review.
