4 Minutes

Chapter 1

A.N.- This is my first story. It`s based on the Madonna song. It`s about what happens after THE BITING if Sarah didn`t save Ethan. Erica and Rory still don`t know it yet. She trains him. How does he adjust to his new life. Will he live forever, learn about it, and love along the way? Many, many, many chapters will happen.

Ethan`s POV

I wake up in Benny's room. I look down. Seriously Benny, Star Wars comforters? Star Trek for the win! But then I look to my wrist. Then the memories start flooding in. The bite. So, it`s official. I`m a fledgling. What happened to Sarah?

"Sarah, are you there? If you a-are I`m f-fine, really.", I say like I`m used this.

Dear God, I at least tried.

I sounded like a baby after waking up, and BAWLING.

I put my hand to the place where my heart was after a few minutes.

It wasn`t beating at all.

I certainly won`t be going to a hospital soon.

Sarah appeared at the door with tear stains on her cheeks after 2 minutes.

"Sarah, I swear I feel nothing at all.", I say generously.

Sarah grabs my hand and says, "This is not good. You are a fledgling. Do you know that?" She says with a tear-filled voice. "Gee. I never thought about that Sarah." I say very dramatic-like. Benny walks in.

"Dude, cool your awake!" He says like he never saw a person awake. I scoff.

"Wide awake." I say. Benny gasped while Sarah has no idea of what`s happening while I`m still trying to.

"Katy Perry has nothing do with this! Anyway, can I see your fangs?" Benny says as Sarah walked out at "Perry."

I try to, but fail ultimately.

"Grandma said that you have to lift up your tongue and hiss. Not Harry Potter style." Benny said with excitement. I did as he told and sure enough, my-I can`t believe it-fangs came out!

"Sarah, come here! I have something to show you!" I said as I smiled. She came out and smiled as she looked at me.

"It took me a week to learn how to get them out. But, Ethan can I ask you something? Come downstairs now." She said urgently.

Sarah got out before she went away with her super speed. I got out of the bed I was on and then ran downstairs with my super speed. "Don`t have to flaunt it." Benny muttered.

I heard it with his super hearing and yelled, "Wasn`t trying to Benny!" I yelled and looked at Sarah.

"So your still adjusting to being a fledgling, huh?"-I nod-"I can`t believe this but I`m going to have to train you on vampirism or fledgling studies, as you see I have mastered. Do you want to start learning now?"-I nod-"Go upstairs, put on some clothes, and let`s start the training! Hur-"

She didn`t get to finish as I ran up the stairs and put on my clothes using my powers.

As I came down I heard her say, "You learn quickly!"

"I do? Because every single test I get I s-" I say but lose her as she runs away with her powers. Two seconds later, I catch up with her. She`s heading into the park. I follow trait and find her sitting down on a bench.

"Hey, you weren`t as long as I thought. Nice speed. We`ll need to use it as much as possible in this case." Sarah says smiling. I smile back with lots of generosity.

"Look, I`m sorry that I blew up like that, I just got the news that Erica`s not coming to my vamps only party and she gave me back the ticket and"-She looked at me and smiled-"You can come! Your a fledgling!"Sarah said brightly. I gaped.

"But Rory doesn`t know yet! He would like, I dunno, flip out!" I whined. I love the party part, but the vampire part, uh, not so much.

"Rory would be glad that his friend joined Team V! He would say and I quote "Dude, we could be the manos of Team V!" What do you say?" Sarah asked like she was expecting something good. Well...

"Yes. I will go. But on one condition. How does the blood substitute taste?" I asked with a smile and complete wonder in my voice.

"It tastes so good. Like chocolate melted on some vanilla. Awesome" Sarah said with complete interest. I gasped.

"Sarah Black has interest in something that I said!"-I looked up.-"And there`s no meteorite! Gasp!" I say dramatically. Sarah rolls her eyes and brings out her phone to play music.

"If this was the last dance of the night,

Will you join me till` the morning light,

Dance the night away cause it feels right,

You can`t stop me no-o-o-ow,

You can`t stop me now!"

I looked at Sarah and asked, "Would you like to dance?" She smiled.

"I thought you would never ask!" Sarah said like she did. I grabbed her hand and swayed to the beat. Sarah followed trait. Soon, we started do ballroom dances. You know, the dip, salsa that you don`t eat, and mambo. She laughed when I dipped her twice. Sarah seemed to enjoy every moment. Then the Madonna: 4 Minutes started. I looked at Sarah. She knew what I thought and backed up out of my arms. The words started.

(Bold-Ethan, Italic-Sarah, Bold and Italic-Both)

"I'm outta time and all I got is 4 minutes, 4 minutes, hey

I'm outta time and all I got is 4 minutes, 4 minutes, hey

I'm outta time and all I got is 4 minutes, 4 minutes, hey

I'm outta time and all I got is 4 minutes, 4 minutes, hey

Come on boy, I've been waiting for somebody

To pick up my stroll, pick up my stroll

Well, don't waste time, give me a sign

Tell me how you want to roll, how you want to roll

I want somebody to speed it up for me

Then take it down slow, there's enough room for both

Girl, I can handle that, you just gotta show me where it's at

Are you ready to go? Are you ready to go?

If you want it, you already got it

If you thought it, it better be what you want

If you feel it, it must be real

Just say the word and I will give you what you want

Time is waiting, we only got 4 minutes to save the world

No hesitating, grab a boy, grab a girl

Time is waiting, we only got 4 minutes to save the world

No hesitating, we only got 4 minutes, 4 minutes

Keep it up, Kidz Bop, hey

You gotta get in line, hop

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock

Sometimes I think what I need is a you intervention, yeah

And you know I can tell that you like it

And that's good by the way that you move, ooh, hey

The road to heaven paved with good intentions, yeah

But if I die tonight at least I can say I did what I wanted to do

Tell me how 'bout you?

If you want it, you already got it

If you thought it, it better be what you want

If you feel it, it must be real

Just say the word and I will give you what you want

Time is waiting, we only got 4 minutes to save the world

No hesitating, grab a boy, grab a girl

Time is waiting, we only got 4 minutes to save the world

No hesitating, we only got 4 minutes, 4 minutes

Keep it up, Kidz Bop, hey

You gotta get in line, hop

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock

Keep it up, Kidz Bop, hey

You gotta get in line, hop

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock"

We danced like the people in the music video! Epic explosion!

"I`m sure that you liked it! I haven`t danced and sang, forever, thanks!" Me and Sarah hugged and said. We pulled apart but looked right in each other`s eyes. We leaned in and started to close our eyes. When our lips met, it felt like something clicked inside of me, like Sarah was completing something inside of me, you know? It felt so awesome kissing Sarah, you know? Then we started to, as the Brits say, full-on snog! As we pulled away, I thought, Could this change our relationship?

"Is this the start of a new relationship?" Sarah asked hopefully.

I nodded, "Sure." I said very mono-like.

Sarah smiled and said, "Let`s get on with the lesson."

But instead, we danced till` the morning light.
