Author's note: Well, I'm currently the DEFINITION of pathetic because I'm 21 years old writing fanfiction for this children's show! But what can I say, I guess I'm a big kid at heart, and "My Baby-sitter's a Vampire" is my guilty pleasure! I love ALL of the characters, and the pairings are alluring and unique! Ethan and Sarah (E-Sare as I like to call them!) are quickly making their way to the forefront of my hear though! So this is for their awesome fans, and fans of the SHOW alike! And also to help build up their archive! Thanks SO much for reading! Enjoy!
Falling Apart and Falling Together – Chapter 1
He sits on the couch with his arm around her, and he can't help but think that it's right, and this is the way they were meant to be...of course minus the annoying inclusion of his little sister. This is the way they are supposed to be: Ethan and Sarah, Sarah and Ethan.
Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace plays across the big screen tv in front of him, but he doesn't watch, even though he can't believe he's gotten her to watch it with him.
He can't seem to take his eyes off of her.
The light from the TV illuminates her face in the darkness of the room, causing her beautiful caramel-like skin to glow and her entrancing brown eyes to appear almost hazel. And she looks every bit like an angel with her pretty, glowing, white blouse and her hair loose and flowing, to the point where Ethan is nearly dying to run his fingers through it, and has to thank the heaven's for the mere privilege to be in her presence.
How in the world did he come to know this goddess and manage to keep her as a constant presence in his life? He was one lucky kid.
The fourteen year old, smiles to himself at his happy musings, and absentmindedly tightens his grip around the vampire's shoulder, before rolling his eyes slightly when she glances down at her cell phone yet again.
He hasn't bothered nagging her before because he too isn't paying attention to the movie (in fact the only one seemingly watching is Jane!), but she's missing nearly all of it! And what's the point her finally watching his movie, if she's going to txt Erica throughout it's entirety?
Still, Ethan sighs to himself and silently relaxes further into the sofa, because Sarah's smiling now, and he doubts he could now, or ever, do anything to interrupt such a gorgeous sight.
So he watches the movie for a bit (still glancing at her more than the screen) and allows her to continue her txting without hindrance...until she giggles that is.
It's always been a sweet sound to his ears, but something about the airy admission makes his heart speed with dis-ease this time. And when he looks over to see her blushing slightly as she pokes madly at her phone, he's sure he knows the reason for the feeling's appearance.
"Is that Erica?"
"Who this?" Sarah scoffs in reply to the question, and Ethan doesn't even realize he's holding his breath until he starts struggling to breathe, and is forced into an embarassing coughing fit.
And now she's staring at him all strangely, and he's looking like a deer in headlights, because his face is red and his eyes are watery from coughing; and he's been trying to be as nonchalant as possible, but it isn't going so well for him...
"No. This is Diego." the brown eyed beauty finally replies after the seer blurts out something about allergy problems. And although it's nice to have finally put an end to the "worried and concerned for your sanity" gaze, the answer kind of makes his stomach hurt.
"Your cousin?" the 14 year old presses hopefully (yet completely hopeless at the same time), before cringing slightly when Sarah giggles in reply.
"No. If you must know, nosy." the vampire eyes Ethan with with playful orbs. "Diego's the new guy I'm dating."
And there it was.
What he had been dreading since the disarming giggle. Actually it was worst than what he'd been dreading! He'd thought she was merely talking to some other guy! Dating was a whole nother ball game!
Ethan's heart begins to beat yet even faster, as unfamiliar emotions wash over him, and cause his skin to heat up.
"How come I'm just finding out about him now?"
He tries not to sound as annoyed as he suddenly is, but really, she claims they're so close. Why hadn't she told him, of all people, about her new boyfriend?
"Because, cranky pants, we were just talking, and I didn't want to go telling everyone until I knew it was serious." the female supernatural shrugs off with a slightly incredulous laugh, as she turns to face the seer already facing her.
"So it is?" Ethan mutters slightly, eyes looking any and every where but at the vampire, as he bites down on the inside of his right cheek, determinedly attempting to appear less agitated than he truly is.
It isn't long before he's running his fingers through his hair, and huffing in agitation however, because now Sarah's staring all skeptically at him. And he knows his flustered persona is not very secret nor discreet.
But it's hard to hide because he's never felt this way before!
The only thing he can relate it to is how he felt when he'd thought she was crushing on "Kurt the Hurt." But then it was only her liking another guy, not actually dating another guy! And the emotions he felt back then were minature and insignificant compared to what he feels plowing into him now.
"I think so..." Sarah finally replys to Ethan's question slowly, after a couple of lingering seconds. And the brunette runs his fingers through his hair once more, before rolling his eyes when he feels the vampire's concerned gaze on him once more, because of course, she's probably thinking he's lost his mind! Probably wondering what the heck is going on with her sweet and innocent nerd!
She's apparently too blind to realize he isn't that same guy anymore! He isn't her shy and awkward nerd (Okay he's still awkward at times...), he's her more mature, slightly more confident best friend who is sick and tired of being her best friend!
Ethan suddenly lets out a frustrated huff, with the musings, and tears his arm from around his vampire friend, not quite sure what to do with himself and the intense emotions he suddenly feels.
"What's wrong with you?" Jane suddenly sits up and questions him, from her spot on the other side of their babysitter.
And the seer loses it slightly.
"Nothing Jane. Nothing's wrong. I'm just being my regular old dorky self, right Sarah?" he rushes out sarcastically, staring pointedly at the female vampire all the while, who in turn scoffs out indignantly before rolling her eyes and clenching her jaw slightly.
"Now that you mention it, you are, Ethan." the beautiful supernatural returns exasperatedly, brown eyes now glaring into her friend. "You are being dorky! What the heck is your problem?" she demands softly, and Ethan growls quietly.
He bites the word out with asserting finality, before turning near violently away from the increasingly angering girl, who in turn lets out a low growl of her own before ripping her gaze away from him and returning her attention back to her buzzing phone.
And for a moment everything's quiet. Tense. But quiet. For a short moment, until...
"So, how long have you guys been dating?"
"A couple of weeks."
The vampire doesn't miss a beat swiftly and sassily replying to her egotistical counterpart, who scoffs contemptuously in reply.
"Oh yeah, that's serious." the seer rolls his eyes condescendingly.
And just like that, the tenseness in the room doubles.
"What's that supposed to mean?" Sarah demands, turning once more to stare (well actually glare this time) head on at the infuriating teen, who in turn chuckles humorlessly.
"Nothing, Sarah. Nothing at all." Ethan crosses his arms over his chest and relaxes further into the couch. "You just really know how to kick a guy in the balls." he grumbles, feeling the vampire's intense glare fixed on him all the while, and ignoring the way it makes him feel.
"What. Are you talking about. Ethan Morgan." she nearly snarls at him, waves of agitation radiating from her every pore as the boy in question closes his eyes and moves both hands through his hair, pulling slightly at the ends as he does so.
'What was he talking about?' Like she didn't know! Like he really made a secret out of how he felt about her!
"It doesn't matter. Just watch the movie." the seer sighs in defeat, jaw clenched tightly as he maintains a death glare at the television screen.
But Sarah doesn't watch the movie. And neither does he. Because whatever it is does matter, because they've never had a fight like this. They hardly ever fight!
And somehow this doesn't feel like the last one...
