Chapter 1

Rose pov

I was sleeping when the alarm went off. Strigoi were attacking the school. Again. I shuttered when I remembered what happened last time.


"Retreat!" yelled Alberta. We ran toward the exit.

Close, I thought, so close.

But not close enough. We were all out, except Dimitri. My mother and Stan quickly grabbed a hold of me when they saw that I was going back into the caves.

"Rose, we have to get out of here!" Mom yelled. "Now! Before the sun goes down!"

"No! I can't! Not without Dimitri!" I yelled back.

I struggled to get away from Mom and Stan, but somehow, I managed. I heard my mom starting to sob. I really wanted to go back to her, but I knew that I couldn't. I can't lose Dimitri. If I lost him, it would be like I lost half of my soul.

I ran as fast as I could back into the caves. When I saw Dimitri trying to fight off 3 strigoi, I knew that I had to help him. I snuck up behind one of them and stabbed him in the heart from behind.

Dimitri quickly took down one of them while I took down the other. Running as fast as we could, we made it out of the caves and back to St. Vladimir's just as dusk approached.

~End Flashback~

I quickly got out of bed and within 2 minutes, I was dressed and out the door with my stake in my hand. I rushed down to the dorm lobby as fast as I could. When I got down there, all hell was breaking loose. There were people everywhere screaming and running around, trying to figure out what was going on.

I looked around, trying to find a familiar face. When I did, I walked, or tried to walk since people kept getting in my way, over to him and said, "Hey Ed, do you know how many?" Eddie is a very good friend of mine. We became really close after Mason's death.

Oh Mason, I thought, how much I miss you.

"I don't know," replied Eddie. "But I do know that there is a lot of hem."

"Do you think there is more than last time?" I asked.

"No, I don't think there is," he said.

"Well, maybe we could - " I started but I got interrupted by Dimitri.

"Rose, we need your help. You too, Eddie." He said.

"Okay," me and Eddie said together, getting our stakes out.

So there you go. My first chapter. If you have any ideas of what i could do for later chapters, don't be afraid to tell me.
