ARGH I AM SOOOO SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG! *bows in shame* I've already started the 4th chapter though so hopefully it will be up faster than this one. :(

Darren's POV

I woke up this morning to something wet licking my cheek, I didn't mind it at first but now I was getting really annoyed with it. "Evra, stop licking me it's annoying." I told him. Wait- why would Evra be licking me? That's just weird, plus highly unlikely. I opened one eye. Evra was still fast asleep next to me. He looked like a cute little doll, as usual. So what's licking me? I turned my head around to see Evra's snake staring me right in the face. I yelled and jumped out of bed, making me and Evra fall on the floor. As soon and Evra hit the ground he immediately woke up in a fright, and started to panic. Luckily Evra quickly realized what happened and was able to get a hold of himself. Crap, did I do that too? Can I do anything right? I shook my head and looked back at the snake. "Stupid snake!" I hissed at it. The snake hissed back and moved to the other side of the tent.

Evra rubbed his head and looked at me sleepily, "She's not stupid, she's just wondering why her master's in a different bed then usual." He yawned. I rolled my eyes, and got up. I looked out of my tent, the sky was a brilliant shade of blue with a few fluffy white clouds dotting the sky. The stunning green hills and the yellow sunflower beds added to the beautiful landscape. There was a big mansion house on the top of one of the hills, it had white walls, and a maroon colored roof. The family that lives there must be completely loaded. I smiled to myself and quickly went back into the tent and put some clean clothes on.

"Evra you gotta come outside with me, it's amazing! The cirque really choose an awesome place to perform!" I said gleefully. Evra was just sitting there petting his snake, he didn't look like he wanted to come outside. I sighed. Well there's goes that plan. A few moments later Cormac Limbs came in. He seemed a little annoyed that he had to be in here but I ignored it.

"Mr. Tiny wants you and Evra to go get some food."

Well at least we have to go outside now. Evra grumbled and got up and started to get changed. I grinned to myself as I watched him. Is it weird that I did? Oh well, can't change it now. Well, Evra certainly did. He gave me a look that simply said 'Why the hell are you watching me?' Needless to say that I quickly averted my eyes. I looked down at my feet to see Evra's pet snake trying to climb up my leg. I mouthed 'don't even think about it' to the snake. It seemed to get the message and started moving towards the other side of the tent.

"Well, aren't you coming?"

I looked back at Evra and he was already outside of the tent. I jumped up, and caught up with him. As soon as Evra saw the landscape his eyes lit up. I let out a terribly girly giggle. Evra heard me and he stared at me for a couple of seconds before bursting into laughter after seeing how red my face got. Even though I was embarrassed it was nice to hear him laugh, it was the first time in a couple of weeks.

We looked for about an hour, nothing. Geez, looks like Mr. Tiny and the Little People will be hungry. I looked around trying to find Evra. It took a couple of minutes but I found him lying against a tree taking a nap. I smiled as started walking towards him, when I noticed three figures were already there. All three were boys, about my age, one was tall and lanky with dark brown hair and acne covering his whole face. The second was my height but much, well, heavier than I was. The third was average height and had bleach blonde hair. I started running towards Evra hoping to stop any problems before they start.

"Haha! Look at this freak! What a weirdo!"

"Aww, man that's disgusting! He looks like a freaking snake!"

Too late. The boys were already ganging up on him. Although it wasn't bothering Evra as much as I thought it would. He was standing his ground, he obviously wasn't in the mood. I guess he has dealt with it alot so I guess it makes sense how it wouldn't bug him. But it still pissed me off, I got to them a second later, although I would've been there by now if I had used my half-vampire speed but now is not the time to draw attention to myself. I put my hand on the chubby one's shoulder and pushed him out of the way.

"What the hell are you doing, man?" he yelled at me. They quickly surrounded me and Evra. I backed up a little. I didn't want to start a fight. I knew they wouldn't stand a chance against me, but I was afraid I would go to far.

"You're making fun of a friend of mine!"

"He's your friend? He's a ugly freak!"

"No he's not! He's- He's just different. So back off!"

The tall blonde, walked towards me, he was trying to look tough, but he was failing at it. He jabbed my shoulder, and said with a frown "You don't order my friends around you stupid little punk."

He shoved me back a few steps. I looked behind me to make sure I didn't step on Evra. But he wasn't sitting on the grass anymore. Evra was standing right next to me. His eyes didn't look scared anymore, his eyes were burning with anger. "Don't touch him." he said moving in front of me. I just stood dumbfounded. He was angrier than I've ever seen him before.

"Oh look, the snake-boy wants to start a fight! What your all made cause I 'shoved' your 'boyfriend'?" He sneered, his friends laughed behind him.

Suddenly a scaly, green fist connected with the blonde's face, he fell flat onto his back. Evra suddenly realizing what he was done, lowered his fists and began to back up. I was still stunned my mouth was wide open. Evra quickly turned around, his eyes were wide with astonishment, he grabbed my wrist and ran for it. The boys quickly picked their 'leader' up and chased after us. I decided that now would be the time to use my half-vampire speed to escape. I told Evra to jump on my back, so I could outrun them. Obviously I wasn't Mr. Crespley so I didn't lose them at first, plus with Evra's added weight I couldn't go as fast as I could. But five minutes later they were nowhere in sight. I told Evra it was ok the get off. He immediately jumped off.

"What was that? You just punched him in the face! I mean, I'm not mad at you or anything, he deserved it but why? I didn't think you where the type of guy to do that." I said astonished. I still couldn't believe that he hit him. I think I was over-reacting but I was awe-struck by him.

"I...He..." Evra mumbled fidgeting with his hands. "He shoved you, so I...umm" He was blushing terribly, it made him look very cute. Wait- did I just think he was cute? Do I like him? I thought about it for a moment, Evra was speaking in a quiet tone but I wasn't listening. I like Evra?

I love Evra.

I interrupted Evra in the middle of his sentence with a quick, chaste kiss. Evra made no reaction, he was completely dumbstruck. Crap, I shouldn't have done that. I don't even know if he likes me the same way. I felt my face and ears getting hot. I'm such an idiot. Suddenly Evra moved forward and returned my kiss, wraping his arms around me in a tight embrace. I wrapped my arms around his waist trying not to break the kiss. Evra tried to move but lost his balanced causing us both to fall to the ground. The grass was soft and cushioned out fall. I climbed on top of Evra and kissed him with much more force, I licked the inside of him mouth, earning a low moan. We stared into each other's eyes.

"I love you Evra."

Sorry I'm not planning on making this one hardcore :/ and once again, I am sorry for my horrible lateness.
