Hi sorry for the long wait I was busy and distracted and couldn't get any inspiration for the chapter. Thanks to everyone who reviewed I shall reply to everyone. :DD
Enjoy this chapter and don't forget to review. :D
Walking into the Ice Queen lair was always a bad thing. She could quite easily kill me or drain my blood or make me her slave or ...
Better stop thinking these things otherwise Amelie might actually do it or I will get nightmares. I never get nightmares. Not really. Even though the first time in Morganville and all the vampires and everything ... That was creepy. But still I didn't get a nightmare. Amelie sat down on her comfy chair and organised papers. Then she sipped her red stuff - I hope to god it wasn't blood ... - and then wrote something. I stood there waiting. I had learned from experience that you don't do anything if Amelie doesn't tell you to.
"Sit please little Claire. I hope you know that." she said. I was confused by that last bit. But I sat anyway. "Now little Claire. I have seen you have met my blood brother. You haven't seen the photos of me when I was a child, and you will not engage in him ever again. He is bad news and I ... Escaped from him a long time ago and now he is back. Stay away from him." She said. I nodded.
"Why do I need to stay away from him? He's nice and he's only trying to make friends you know..." I trailed off, momentarily forgetting you don't speak unless you are spoken to. Amelie looked up at me with cool ice blue eyes.
"Because I said so. You have only met him today. I met him centuries ago. Do the math and you will find out." I sighed and nodded. I was about to give up when something surfaced in my mind. I focused on it for a minute to see what it was but when the veil lifted ... It was one of those things that should only be kept in your head. I twiddled my coat's zip and looked around the office. The thing that shouldn't be said wouldn't go away so I just decided to say it very quietly and very quickly and hope Amelie's sensitive sense of hearing won't pick it up.
"You looked really cute in that picture of you, Amelie." I said, very quietly and very quickly. Someone snickered behind me but I couldn't be bothered to turn around. Amelie looked at me expectantly.
"I what? You think I look cute?" She asked. I felt my cheeks heating up. I shook my head, quickly. "What then? Because from what I picked up from your rushed speech was that you had changed genders and had started liking females now. What would Oliver say? Or Myrnin... He had his sights on you, you know and now your attracted to females ... He is going to be sad." She said. I burned up more.
"No I still like boys and Shane its just that I thought you were cute in the photo of when you was a baby. That's all." I said, hurriedly.
"Right. Anyway meeting closed I only wanted to take you away from my brother and tell you, you haven't seen that photo and you should stay away from my brother. Are we understood?" she asked, expectantly. I nodded, knid of desperate to get out of the office. And not that kind of desperate ... Sort of another desperate.
"Um... Amelie? Where's the toilets?" I asked. Amelie smirked.
"Child since when do vampires need to relieve themselves?" she asked. I felt a sinking feeling. The fasted I could get back home to the Glass House was around 15 or 20 minutes. My bladder or urine storage would not last that long.
"You really don't have toilets?" I asked, hoping she was only saying one of her bad jokes. Amelie looked at me.
"No. Not really anyway. Some humans come but as children are wreckers we don't have any toilets for them to wreck. You would just have hold it." she said.
"But it will take 20 minutes to get back home!" I almost shouted.
"Then you will have to hold it for 20 minutes." she said, simply. I figeted and moved around. Amelie made a sound like a groan. "Also please will you not relieve yourself in my office on my floor, please? It shall be very un-plesant." she said.
"Easy for you to say, you don't go to the toilet every day." I said and walked around some more. Amelie did a small shrug. "Amelie!" I said her name, without any reason why. I am not normal.
"What is it Claire? You will have to hold it in for 20 minutes, do not relieve yourself on my carpet and please leave. What is there not to understand?" she asked me.
I sighed and sidled out of the office door. Unfortunately Amelie's brother had dissapeared and there was no-one I could ask to take me home. I also need to crap somewhere.
"ROAR!" someone shouted. I screamed, almost crapped and peed myself and spun around. I could have put a stake through his heart if I had one and there were no witnesses.
"Myrnin what the HELL? You freaking scared the crap out of me, you idiot!" I shouted. Myrnin laughed. I ignored him and went towrds the door. The scare from the mad scientist had taken my mind off the bladder and backside problem but I still needed the toilet.
"I heard ... You need a ride?" Myrnin said, obviously recovering. I spun around.
"No I am never getting in a car with you ever again. Never." I said firmly.
"Why not?" He asked. I rolled my eyes.
"Because A) You don't know how to drive and B) you almost killed me once when I got in with you." I said. Myrnin walked towards me. He would totally tower over Amelie he's so tall.
"I have learned how to drive now Claire. Have you heard of the driving instructor? They are fascinating." he said and clapped with a stupid grin on his face. I nodded, not really listening. "And they are excellent snacks." he said. I whipped my head towards him.
"What do you mean snacks? Did you eat the driving instructor?" I asked, incredulously. Myrnin shrugged.
"They are tasty and some are very annoying. I need a treat for sitting down so long." he said, casually.
"But you can't eat someone who teaches you not to kill anyone!" I said and walked off.
"I can drive Claire, believe me please!" he called. I sighed and turned around. Then the mad scientist turned on his puppy-dog look.
"Fine but if you try to kill me or anything we're finished." I said. Myrnin nodded enthusiastically.
In the car.
Getting inside a silver Peugeot I put my seat belt on. Myrnin knowing him didn't bother. He turned on - Or hot wired - the car and drove off. The ride was smooth. Maybe he has learned to drive. Then it got bumpy.
"You know Claire?" he asked me.
"I was lying about learning to drive. I don't think Amelie applies for human driving instructors." he said. I seriously would have killed him. I stared at him opened mouthed. Suddenly the car veered and I screamed.
"Myrnin stop this car right now!" I shouted. Myrnin laughed manically.
"I love cars!" he shouted.
