"Beth, wake up," my mother's voice pleaded, "Bethany, please wake up!" I opened my eyes, and my mother was standing over my bed. I looked over at the clock. 2:28.

"Really, mom? It's 2:30 in the morning. What do you want?" I asked, annoyed.

"I need you to get out of bed. Put some clothes on. Go get in the car, I'll explain everything later." My mother seemed panicked, so I wasn't about to question her. She never freaks out like this. Something was obviously wrong. I got out of my bed and walked to my closet. I had already chosen what I was going to wear to school, so I just decided to wear that. Dark skinny jeans, a blue tank top, a cardigan, and some ballet flats ( cgi/set?id=69140013). I leave my long, brown hair down because I'm too lazy to do anything with it. I walk into the kitchen to see my mother and father panicking and my brothers confused.

"Okay, let's go." my father says before we all start to file out the door. We make a stop at the bank. My parents completely empty our emergency account. It comes out to a lot, seeing as they've been saving for 20 years and they're both doctors.

After that we drove for what felt like hours. Eventually, I got fed up with the suspense, and needed to know what on Earth was happening.

"Where are we going?" I asked.

"Away," my father replied.

"Seriously, guys, just tell me." I begged.

"We have to tell them eventually, Rick," my mother said, as she began to tell us the story, "Your father and I, as you know, have recently become...different. We've changed. Not theoretically, literally. We've changed. Into something that we've spent our entire lives telling you was impossible. It was a story we'd tell you at bedtime. People who drank blood to survive. Vampires," she finished, with a serious look on her face. At the exact same time, my brothers and I burst out laughing.

"Vampires...that's great...mom. Vampires..." Eric said between laughs.

"Uh...I don't think she's kidding, guys..." John said after a few moments.

"She's not," my father finally butted in, "we're vampires. The hospital found out that we were stealing blood. We had to leave or face legal trouble. There are a few vampires in a town in Virginia. Mystic Falls. That's where we're going."

At this point, I was beyond confused. I was 17, almost 18. Top of my class. Head cheerleader. Most popular senior our school had ever seen. Yet, it was all going to be taken away from me. Just because my parents were different.
