Previously on 'WORLD'S COLLIDE'
From the too of the buildings surrounding them people jumped down and started fighting the wounded Strigori. But there was one in particular that moved so fast that you had to be really paying attention so you could see them in action. The mysterious being was just about to stake yet another Strigori when Rose suddenly came out of no where and pounced on their back, pulling back the hood of their long sleeved black sweatshirt. But the face that was discovered under the hood was too shocking to understand. There stood Bella. The stake in her hand drenched in blood, that was not her own and glaring furiously and Rosalie.
SOPHIA a.k.a (BELLA) 'P.O.V'
"No" I shook my head as Fernanda held up a pink puffy dress. After the whole meeting Goatee -who I later found out that was actually named Samuel Frank- introduced me to Fernanda Granger, who was assigned to help me clean up.
I don't know why, I've known how to take care of myself since I was five. So imagine my shock -and awkwardness- when she stepped into the bathroom with me. After almost half an hour of persuading her to wait outside, she finally gave in, but had me keep the door open.
Fernanda was nice, but too nice. She wasn't much older than me either. I think she was twenty-two tops. She had an angelic face with big brown doe eyes and and curly light brown hair. She had a body that was much like an hour figure, but she was too shy and dressed in a simple summer dress that didn't hug her curves and ended a bit below her knees.
Since we were about the same size she offered to let me borrow her clothes but they were all either to girl-y or too...simple. If only Kathy were here we would've been all over this girl and her closet reprogramming her sense of style.
Kathy. I haven't heard from her since that job in Russia which is very strange for us since we hardly ever are separated and when we are we all ways spend our time calling each other or video chatting. But we haven't talk not even once since the month that I've been at court.
"Um, how about this?" Fernanda held up yet another dress, but this one was unusually shorter than the rest. It was a floral mid-thigh causal dress. It seemed to have perfect cleavage for my girls since it was tightly fitted from the waist up and then from the waist down it was puffy with a thin braided belt at the waist. Now this was like something I'm used too.
"You had this and you made me look at all the others?" I rolled my eyes at her while snatching the dress from her hands.
"Well I didn't know if you'd like it since I haven't worn it in four years" She looked at the ground and fidgeted nervously, while biting her lower lip.
"You've worn this?" I asked. I don't believe she would EVER wear this. She doesn't seem to open about her beauty.
"Yeah but I have clothes I haven't worn-" she quickly said rushing to her closet again.
"No! No, it's okay. I'm just shocked that you'd wear something like this. You don't seem the type" I gently smiled at her. I've heard people who had been shy and insecure turning outgoing and confident, but not the other way around. "I'm just going to change" I told her pointing to her bathroom and went inside.
Quickly changing, I put my combat boots back on, and let my hair fall lose before opening the door and went in search for something to drink. And I wasn't meaning something like orange juice or whiskey. I was meaning something like AB negative, hell maybe even a spiked AB negative.
"Going somewhere?" a voice asked when i emerged from Fernanda's bedroom. Conveniently she wasn't there when I got out of her bathroom. But apparently someone else was outside.
Turning around to glare at the speaker my eyes narrowed and glared at the one person I did not expect to find here. The stupid idot that made me land in the royal court. Adrian.
"Nice to see you too" he let out a chuckle, walking towards me. I was about to punch the living hell out of him when I saw what was in his hand. From what I smelled it was a brandy mixed with some...O positive?
"Where you get that?" I asked my eyes glaze over and stared and my potential prize. Adrian looked at me with wide eyes before shoving the glass in my hands.
"Here it looks like you need it more than me" He smirked when I gulped it down with out a pause.
"Shut up, try not being able to feed for a week" I hissed at him. Calm down Sophie, I reminded myself. I didn't want to go all blood thirsty Strigori on them. It had only happened a handful of times in my sixteen years of...what ever I live. But each and every of those times it was horrible, it was as if my humanity had disappeared completely and just left with the Strigori side.
I've killed innocent people during those times, and the worst part is that when I calm down and turn back to normal I remember every single detail down to the last drop of blood from my victim into my mouth.
"Yeah, I should apologize for that..." he trailed off, running a hand through him hair.
"Ya think?" I glared at him. "What are you doing here anyway?"
"I'm actually here to pick you up" he said smiling at me.
"Where are we going?" I cautiously asked looking at him from head to toe as if I could see the slightest trace of the plan that was going in his head.
"I'm actually taking you outside and then from there we're going to take a plane to ZEMY's estate" he said, sounding happy while he led me down the hallway.
"Which one?" I asked rolling my eyes. Abe had TOO many 'houses' -which mostly were more like mansions- to count or memorize. He has at least 15 in Russia that I know of! But most of those estates he leases them out to human multimillionaires and people like that.
He says that he can never 'settle down' in one place because the world never stops changing and there's always new places to discover. But I think that he just wants so many houses to confuse the governments.
"what do you mean 'which one'?" Adrian asked with puzzlement clearly writing on his face. "As in he has more than one?"
"Yeah" I answered, raising an eyebrow at him. Didn't he grow up as a spoiled little rich royal? At least that's what I've heard about him.
We didn't much after that. And if we did it was mostly things like 'how's the weather?' and stuff, there was an awkward tension with him, but the strange thing is that I actually liked having him near me -a VERY small part, but a part non the less.
I wonder what it would be like if me and him...-
Ew, no. Why didn't that thought even cross my mind? I shuddered. He's older than my own mother for crying out loud! Sure he hasn't aged a day since he was turned into a Stigori, but he's still older than me...WAY older.
I don't even know why I'm so bothered. He's only like a few decades older than me not a century older than me like...Edward. I sighed, even though he had hurt me I couldn't bring myself to stop loving him. I fought against it as hard as I could and lied to myself, but truth was I had fallen off a cliff into an endless abyss with out a rope to pull myself out.
"So what's Rose like now a days? Is she still crazy as ever?" Adrian casually asked, sneaking a look at me.
"Yeah,I guess" I shrugged, feeling even more awkward now since I remembered that I was walking down a hallway with my mom's ex-boyfriend.
"So your an only child?"
"No." I said, he looked at me with a weird expression before I corrected my self. "Well yeah I am, but I have two adoptive brothers" I explained. Adrian seemed to think about it for a bit, before taking a sharp left turn leading to a door.
"Why?" I asked. Now I'm curious why he wants to know. I sure as hell hope it's not to get back with my mom...because if it was then I don't think i'll like to have a cougar as a mom.
Adrian didn't answer and instead shrugged while opening the door for me, still thinking about mom and Adrian I walked through mumbling a quick 'thank-you'.
I quickly realized that we were outside, still in the middle of no where. The hollow tress tempted me to run from Adrian's side and into them. But there was some complications. First on all I didn't know where I was so I could head in a completely wrong direction and secondly I didn't have a car, cellphone, money, or anyway to get back to Europe.
Of course it wasn't the first time this had happened to me, but I didn't like it non the less. My first move would be to run the hell away and not stop for at least 30 minutes or until I'm sure I've lost them, the second move would be to find a source of money by compelling people -more likely men- into giving me some by either using persuasion or seducing them. Third and finally move would be to find some sort of transportation to take me to my destination.
"Don't even think about it little Rosie" Adrian chuckled grabbing my forearm and hauling me toward two black Lincoln Escalates.
"What did you just call me?" I asked puzzled digging my heel on the ground so he wouldn't be able to pull me anywhere. "And don't think about what?"
"Don't think about running off. I spent a decade as a Strigori, remember? I know that look in a person's eye" he answered my second question, not bothering to answer my first question.
"Hard to forget since I was the one to turn you back" I narrowed my eyes at him. How can he be so happy talking about Strigori? Doesn't he feel ANY remorse of killing innocent people just because they smelt good?
Adrian just sent me another cheesy smile before pulling me the rest of the way towards the trucks. I hadn't noticed it before , but there were two sentries stationed next to the doors of the trucks. Ugh great I'm going to be gaurded like if I were one of the presidents daughter. Ugh!
Once inside the Escalate - but not before slapping the unexpecting guard on his butt cheek- I found myself relaxing and my eyes feeling heavy. Yawning I rubbed my eyes to try and keep them from watering.
"Go to sleep i'll wake you up when we reach the airport" Adrian told me.
"Im not - oh what the hell" I rested my head against the windows shield and let myself to fall into deep oblivion.
"Sophia wake up!" Adrian shook me hardly while unbuckling my seat bealt. I yawned not knowing what was going on. The world outside was a blurr as our car broke many traffic laws. Cars honked and angry shouts were thrown at us.
"what's wrong?" I asked, my dazyness slowely waring off.
"Strigori are after us. We won't be able to make it to the airport at this rate so their dropping us off half a mile away so they can try and fight them off while we're boarding" Adrian breathlessly said reaching under the seat and handing me a jacket. It was a bit to big for me, but that's not why I didn't put it on. The reason was because I already had my sweatshirt on.
"No thanks I already-" I tried to deny it before he cut me off.
"Just switch it with the one your wearing, it's to get them off our track for extra time" he shoved the jacket at me eagerly, before putting on his own. "Tie your hair back and tuck it into the hood" he ordered.
I undid my ponytail and instead lifted my hair into a bun before pulling up the hood.
"Okay when I saw go, you open your door and jump off okay? I know the car is moving, but it's the safest way" Adrian's eye's were trained out side the back window.
I didn't have time to respond because the car swerved sharply and Adrian said "Go!". Instantly I threw open the door and hurtled myself out. With a grunt I landed on my side before rolling to safety. When I was sure I wasn't in any potential danger anymore I check my surrounding's for Adrian. He was a few feet away from me groaning.
"Ugh I'm SO not doing that again" he mumbled getting up and brushing himself off. I checked my arms for injuries, and sure enough there were a couple scratches and bruises, but nothing that wouldn't heal in a matter of minutes.
I slowly walked over to him and held in the urge to laugh at his face. To prevent from doing so I bit my tounge and clamped my hand over my mouth. I'm not sure if he had felt it but there was the biggest leech I had ever seen sucking away on his forehead.
"What's wrong with you?". He asked, glaring at me before stomping away towards the opposite side of the road.
"You have a little something right there" I managed to bite out, while motioning to my own forehead. "Oh the irony" A gigle escaped my lips and I once again clamped my hand over my mouth.
"What?" Adrian looked puzzled before reaching up to touch his forehead. When he felt the leech his eyes turn as wide as a silver dollar. "Ah!" He pulled of the leech and threw it as far as he could.
"A vampire being sucked by a leech" I couldn't help it any longer, I burt out laughing. I continued laughing for what seemed like SEVRAL minutes until my stomache couldn't hold it any longer. Adrian just stood there glaring at me the entire time.
"We don't have time for this, the Strigori could've already noticed that we arn't in the car" Adrian continued to glare at me, before turning around and jumping over the border that separated the intersect from the suburban.
Holding back a smile I jump after him and continued our way toward the airport.
"You walk SO slow!" I complained once again. We had walked for about fifteen minutes and Adrain was walking at a baby's pace!
"Well not all of us are hybrids that hardly get tierd" he shot back at me and decreased his pace even more.
"Adrian!" I moaned, throwing my hands up in the air. You know what I give up! I ran over to Adrian using my Strigori speed and pulled him at that same speed until we were outside the airport. "You see, this is MUCH faster"
"And you didnt mention this before?" he looked even more annoyed now, throwing me an incredulous look.
We were just about to enter the airport when we saw the gauds jumping out of the trucks and going around us. Aren't we supposed to NOT attract attention? People stopped and stared. No doubt they were wondering about the girl being gaurded by SEVRAL bodyguards.
That's how it was the whole time we were waiting for the next plane to board -since we had obviously missed our shedualed flight.
Relieve washed over me as I sat down in my comfertable leather first class window seat. I was glad they had booked me in first class instead of buisness, becuase I wasn't sure I could endure a twelve hour flight without ringing the neck of a crying baby.
I was begining to think that there wasn't going to be anyone sitting next to me until Adrian sat down and smiled cockily at me while I groaned.
Why? What have I done to deserve this punishment? ...wait don't answer that.
After about an hour into the flight I knew I couldn't last sane much longer with Adrian coming up with cheesy jokes sober. So after excusing my self I went off to look for the flight attendant. Ya, I know why not push the button? Well, I wanted to get away from all the knock-knock jokes.
Deciding to take as much time possible I walked into the buisness area and went in search for the cubicle area where I knew they kept some snacks. Unfortunatly it was all the way in the back so in order to get to it I had to pass through the screaming babies and sweaty perverts.
Sighing I shook my head and continued down the aisle before bumping into someoone in the way. "Oops, sorry!" I immeaditly apologized before picking up what they had dropped. Once I did I glanced at it and found that it was an identification card that stated that it belonged to Gaurdian Janine Hathway. Oh crap.
Slowely looking up I saw Janine looking down at me sternly. I thought she didnt recongize me at first, but then she grabbed my forearm and pulled me up.
F*ck-Ed-y f*ck f*ck what had I gotten into now?
So...you like it? Love it? Hate it? (hopefully the first two) please tell me!
Why did Adrian call Sophia 'little Rosie'?
The first three people who answer it correctly get a sneak get to read the next chapter before anyone else! So hurry and REVIEW!
