Hello this is NarutoRox's dedication fanfiction so enjoy M so I hope you like it
I set the letters on the table in a hurry to Myrnin. I was sure no one would send them in the mail, but I didn't have time to shred them since I wasn't leaving. If I didn't leave now I was going to be late. I ran through Morganville ignoring the honks of oncoming cars waving sorry and shimmied my way past people. I got there flying down the steps landing whilst panting and looked at the clock I made him install. 12:00 on the dot. "Yes!" I exclaimed and did a little dance then composed myself.
"Claire what are you doing here?" He popped his head, and only his head, from the doorway across the room.
"What do you mean?" I set my bag down and he put a hand up to stop me.
"Don't come any closer. I sent you a kext or whatever you humans call it." He put his hand down and disappeared.
"It's text and I, oh." I looked at my phone it was flashing one missed text from Myrnin. I opened it up and read it.
Gonth conte niy dayts
Well he tried to send me a text. I smirked. "I couldn't have read this if I tried. And what are you hiding?" I stepped closer and he closed something like a door by the sounds of it.
"Nothing you can go." He said sternly.
"No I ran all the way here only to be told to leave. Uh I think not. Come on there has to be something I can do." He blocked the entrance and I gave up turning around. Not the wisest decision, but my only one really. I looked around at the bottles he had laying around.
"Nothing except…." He trailed off and began to rummage around and must have found it for he had made an exclamatory sound. "Here." He tossed whatever it was and by reflex I snatched it in the air. I hadn't realized what it was until I already had it in my hand.
"I am not working on this." I tossed it back.
"Yes, or go home." He tossed it back. I wasn't going to win I caught it and began to work on the foul device. It was something Myrnin had started one day whilst I was gone and never really finished. He had told me it would control vampire's predatory instincts, but the only thing it did, after a slight recalibration error, was turn me into a horny little school girl. That day I swore never to work on it again. He wasn't so good with those kind of swears. It also had some very….overwhelming side effects. Ones that left me locked in Myrnin's room alone to solve on my own. Which I was grateful for because I would have had a hell of a time trying to explain why I had ravished my boss to Shane. I worked on the device reluctantly. I had decided to name it Monica due to the effects it really had on people. I tinkered with it for a few and then set it down cracking my back. Myrnin was sitting in one of his hideous chairs and reading a book I didn't recognize. Frankly I didn't recognize hardly any of these books. Not like he read Twilight, but if I saw him reading them I would report him to Amelie. Those weren't even literature in my eyes. They were best selling firewood. He looked over the top. "Done?" I shook my head and he buried his nose in the book once again. I took that as too keep working.
"Do you have any water?" I asked. "That won't damage my kidneys." I added hurriedly. He grumbled and stood up fluidly as vampires do.
"Yes follow me." I stood up and followed him into the tiny kitchenette and he looked through the fridge. He pulled out a bottle of water and I looked at it. "It hasn't been opened see." He tapped the cap. I took it and opened it. He was right it still had the seal on it. I sniffed it just in case and smelt no difference. I shrugged and downed two thirds of it right away. I sighed and I hadn't realized that he had left. I went back out into the lab and saw he was looking at Monica. The device. I might have to rename that. How about Sex Machine? Yea now that would reward me with some outstanding weird looks. Oh I got one MF for Megan Fox. There we go. I walked over and he was holding it up.
"What do you think of MF?" I was honored with a look, but I shrugged.
"Well I saw you have almost finished." He was going to operate it on himself, yet I stopped him.
"No if that did what it did last time then god knows a few minutes in time out would suffice. Do it on me." I said and he shrugged then obliged. I could feel it begin to work and a wave of calm laziness washed over me and I looked at him with a lazy smile. "Well it works." I fell to the ground not caring about where I was landing and just stared at the ceiling. "Is this what it's like to be stoned?" I slurred.
"Um Claire I don't know what that means?" He said looking down at me. I pat the floor next to me for him to join me and he just continued to stare at me. I shrugged.
"Okay be that way." I yawned and felt my eyes droop. I closed my eyes and was fast asleep within minutes. I felt myself be picked up and lay down, but that was all I remember.
I woke up god knows how long later and opened my eyes. It was dark and I was left wondering where I was. I remembered Myrnin using that device then, then, oh I don't know it hurt my head to much to think about. I swung my legs off of whatever I was laying on and the lights flickered on. Ow. I shielded my eyes and as they adjusted to the light change I saw I was in the lab still. Myrnin stood by the light switch his finger still holding it there as if he moved it would turn off. "How long was I asleep?" I rubbed my eyes and yawned again.
"Six hours." He said walking away from the light towards me. My eyes widened in shock.
"No no no." I looked over at the time. Yup six hours. It was roughly ten o' clock now. I was late. "Why didn't you wake me up?" I asked standing up grabbing all of my stuff.
"I tried. Very powerful. Do you feel sick at all, any of the...previous side effects as before?" I shook my head.
"No, but if I don't get home now there is going to be a very angry human side effect tramp though your door." I had all of my stuff packed and looked at him expectantly.
"Oh yes. Here." He opened the portal and I stepped through.
"I'll be back tomorrow unless you learn to text." I snickered and he shut the portal. Eve was sitting on the couch and jumped ten feet in the air spilling whatever she had in her lap all over the room.
"Jesus what did you do that for? And you're late." She gathered herself.
"Jesus didn't do it I did and thank you I know." She flipped me off and I played along. "You wound me Eve."
"Shane is working late today. Oh and I sent off your letters today." She said eating again.
"What letters?" I asked dumping my bag and sitting down next to her.
"The ones you left on the table. I thought you were in a hurry ad couldn't do it yourself and so I sent then off with the mail." I stared at her in horror.
"Eve you shouldn't have done that we need to get those back before they are sent out." She looked at me weird.
"Why what were they?" She stopped eating.
"They were letters to colleges." Her face paled under the white mask.
"Oh my god CB I'm so sorry there is no way for you to get them back. I'm sorry." She put her food down and gave me a look.
"They are going to start to send spotters, so Amelie will know something is up. Oh no." I put my head in my hands. Eve put her hand on my back and I sighed heavily.
"You'll be okay we can just tell Amelie, if she finds out, that it was an accident." I gave her a look through my fingers. "Yea you're right she'll figure it out." Michael walked in the door and called out.
"Honey I'm home." I looked up confused.
"Honey I'm home?" Eve shrugged.
"He's trying it out like they do in movies since we're married now." She giggled a little bit.
"In here." I replied. He walked in and sat down in the chair.
"Hey what happened?" He asked concern clouding his face.
"Eve sent out my college application letters and now they are going to send spotters to Morganville." I managed.
"Oh well that can't be good." I looked at him like really-I-wouldn't-have-guessed. He held up his hands in defense. "Okay okay I get it bad news. Maybe we can intercept the mail truck like some sort of awesome action movie." He joked. I gave a sarcastic laugh. "It was worth a shot." I leaned back on the couch and tried to think of a plan.
"Maybe they will be discrete. They won't make such a big statement." I looked at Eve shaking her head.
"That's one thing they aren't discrete. They want people to know who they are, what they represent, and who they are hunting. Like a bunch of piranhas." She snapped her jaws and I chuckled a little. Well that was not comforting. Now I just had to find away to make it through all of the spotters without running to Amelie.
Thank you for reading I hope you liked it
