This is a little something I wrote for the new show "My Babysitter's a Vampire". Please let me know what you think and if I should continue it. Thanks!
A Little Time
"Just give me three years." Eyes wide in desperation, Ethan pulls her until she is only a breath away. "Three years until we are the same age."
"No. I can't do that to you." Sarah looks sadly up at him, needing to move away but wanting to wrap her arms around him, to feel his warmth, to feel safe. "It's too dangerous."
"I'm willing to take that risk." Grasping her hands, he holds on tight. "What is three measly years to someone who will live forever? What have you got to lose?"
Unable to look at him any longer, she lowers her head until her face is covered by a fall of mahogany locks. "Everything." She mumbles quietly, hoping he won't hear her.
Letting go of one hand, he touches the tips of his fingers to her chin and raises her face until he can see her eyes. "Please tell me."
"I could lose everything. I could lose you." She whispers again, a tear cascades down one pale cheek followed by another. "I don't want this kind of life for you and I couldn't handle it if something happened to you."
"I don't know what the future will be and I can't promise what I don't know." Ethan admits honestly and smiles sardonically. "If only my visions would work that way." Shaking his head, he continues. "Thanks to my 'gift' I will never have a nice, safe, normal life but I can promise to be as careful as possible and that I will try my hardest to find a cure for you."
"Why?" Sarah lays a hand on his chest and feels his heart pounding beneath. "Why take the chance on something that might not even exist? Why won't you just move on with your life?"
"Because…" Ethan pauses and frames her face with his hands, rubbing her tears away with the pads of his thumbs. "Because I look forward to every day knowing I'll see you. Because I can't imagine my life without you in it." Leaning closer, he bumps his nose against hers. "Because I love you." Closing the distance between them, Ethan slides his lips across hers tentatively. Feeling an excited jolt that rocks both of them, he wraps his arms around her waist and moves in again. Unable to stop herself, Sarah tilts her head to meet him and opens her mouth to taste him. He deepens the kiss and growls in satisfaction when she responds, savoring the feel of her. Ethan pulls away after a while, finishing with a soft, sweet peck on her kiss-swollen lips. "I can't give you up."
"You are going to be the death of me." Wrapping her arms around Ethan, Sarah hugs him close.
"No." Returning her hug, Ethan smiles warmly. "I'm going to be the life."
