"Hey girl!" Summer waves her hand at my face snapping me out of the trance that I was just in "If you glare at the back of his head any longer it will not burn a hole in it. Damn, I thought you had moved on from him."
Summer is a werewolf that is the daughter of the beta. Noah's dad is the Alpha of the Sunset Ridge Pack, then Summer's dad is his Beta.
Giving her a small smile "Sorry, I was just thinking. I just can not believe all that has happened since last year. Are you going to the winter dance at the end of the week?"
Dawn plops down on the other side of me with her cup of blood and a huge tray of food "No, we are going to my place for a real party."
Looking over at her I raise my eyebrow "What are you talking about?"
"The Vampire King is throwing his son a birthday party Saturday. Both of you are invited, since it is a invite only party too. I have the clearance to bring five people" she points at each of us with her long skinny finger.
Dawn is the daughter of a high advisor to the King himself. Her dad has the ability to see the future; he is also a very successful businessman so the King looks to him for multiple things to help run his kingdom. Everyone here is wealthy or beyond rich, that is the only way you can live in Sunset Valley. Both the King and the current Alpha have to approve you to move into this community. They work very close with each other making sure the packs do not reek havoc on anyone here. We all live in peace with each other with each racing knowing what the other is.
"Come on girl, you use to come to the packhouse all the time for parties. We need to get you back to your old self. This hole you have dug and buried yourself in is very depressing. Our best friend is no longer here, just this shell of a person who we call our friend" Summer pleads with me.
Taking a long breath I know that I have wrapped myself up in a cocoon not wanting to get close to another person ever again. Looking at their sad faces knowing they miss the old me I slowly nod "Fine, I will go for a few hours."
Dawn laughs "This is a huge ordeal. He is turning five hundred so it is a full blown party. Both of you will also be spending the night with me for the weekend because this party will go well into the morning hours. We will be going to bed around dawn so you will have to stay with me in the extra rooms we have."
Dropping my head into my head I don't want to do this, I use to be big into the party scene but I just don't do it since I lost my heart that day. My whole life, attitude and demeanor changed that day. These two have been trying to pull me out of the hole that I dug under me then basically jumped into not ever wanting to come back out into the real world. Looking up at them they are smiling knowing she has me in a corner that I can not get out of "What do we need to have for this party of yours?"
Her smile grows bigger if that was even possible "It is a full formal dress event. We need brand new dresses, shoes and will go to get our hair done along with our nails. You will need to spend the weekend with me, we will go and get our dresses after school today then Saturday morning we will go get the best done with ourselves. We will be looking so hot and it will be fun also."
Groaning to myself I turn back to glare at his head one more time as she drapes herself all over him like a blanket. Dawn pulls me out of the chair with her strength as we walk to put our trays up then head to the lockers. Getting the rest of my books that I need for the next two classes and putting up the two that I have in my hand. We don't ever have homework here and that is so nice, our teachers make sure all of our work is done before we can leave the class. Their excuse is that they have other things to do when school lets out, since most of them here also hold some type of rank in either the packhouse or castle. The omegas are the bottom of the chain but are treated with the utmost respect; they do the cooking and cleaning of the kitchen. Each pack member is responsible for their own rooms, they don't have servants to wash their things. Now the castle is totally different, he has maids that clean the rooms, cooks that make all the meals and then people who give their blood freely to each of the vampires that live there. No one is forced to do anything they don't want to basically, but if you don't donate blood as a human then you are put to work in the castle to help with daily chores. Each person has a job and then they are done for the day. There is three shifts of cooks that make each meal, the maids are assigned one room to clean each day so life for them is easy. They are paid for their work which is a good sum but most of them just do it because they are bored and really have nothing else to do. Being rich is nice but then after staying in the house day in and day out some people get bored and seek to do some jobs to fill their empty lives.
"Sky! Come on girl, we are going to be late if you stand there looking into that locker any longer" Dawn punches my shoulder.
"Coming" shutting the door with a clang then taking off down the hall with them to our next class together.
