The house was quiet and calm. The vampires were downstairs chilling and I was locked up in my room gaming and getting really angry that nothing was going my way. I could hear my friends laughing in my ear and no matter how hard I tried, they just wouldn’t die.
I sat on the edge of my bed cursing at the TV screen.
“Oh, come on!” I said “How did you not die? I shot you in the fucking head!”
"You have to try harder than that, Willow,” Jace laughed, "Jerome said that you suck ass,”
There was a small knock on the door and Emily came in. I sent her a quick wave and carried on gaming.
“No! Fuck!” I shouted “How the hell did that kill me? I wasn’t even...fine. Fine. Whatever. Fuck you! I’m quitting this stupid game”
"Bye loser!” Jerome and I quickly turned my tv off and threw my headset across the room.
Emily giggled beside me “Did you just rage quit?”
“Yes,” I said, feeling stupid for getting so worked up over a game “What’s up?”
“I just wanted to talk” She was fiddling with her fingers “The boys are busy, and I can only talk to you anyway”
I frowned “Shoot. What’s bothering you?”
“Do you think I’m pretty?”
I laughed and looked at her. I quickly shut up “Well...yeah. Why do you ask?”
Emily shrugged, and tears appeared in her eyes “I don’t feel very pretty. In fact, I feel that I’m only second best.”
“I’m so confused. What’s going on?”
“The boys are busy and Theo is busy,” Emily burst into tears “Some female person is there, and he couldn’t take his eyes off her! I had to run out before I cried in front of her. She’s really pretty Willow and I don’t think I can compare to her!”
“He ignored you?” I said, feeling myself get angry.
“Yes” She cried “I tried to get his attention, but he brushed me off like I was just annoying”
“That bastard!” I said, getting to my feet “Let’s go see how beautiful this female is and I will tell her to fuck off”
Emily wiped her eyes “Leo is there too”
“What’s your point?”
“I know you like him. She’s stealing all their gazes and I don’t trust her,” Emily sniffed “It’s like she is the most important thing in the room and to Theo as well. It’s like I don’t exist,”
“Huh,” I said, “Let’s go see if they are too busy to pay attention to you then. Theo should get ready for a beating”
Emily smiled “She really is beautiful”
“I will be the judge of that!” I said pulling Emily after me. I followed the smell of marzipan and found them sitting in the large lounge “Hello boys!”
They turned to look at me.
“Willow?” Leo said, “What are you doing here?”
“I’m bored of playing games,” I pouted and hugged Emily to me “And Emily said she was feeling lonely”
“Oh,” He said, “Well, come sit with us”
“How cute,” A female voice said, dripping with bitterness. I turned to look at the female sitting on one of the armchairs. Her long blonde hair was pulled up into a bun, with two strands falling beside her face. Her makeup was done to perfection, and her bright red lipstick looked like it had been painted on. Just like her perfect white dress.
“Huh,” I said, looking her up and down “You’re ok looking but you aren’t all that.”
“Excuse me?” She narrowed her eyes at me “How dare you talk to me like that”
“How else am I supposed to talk to a hoe?” I scoffed.
“Emily,” I grinned at my friend “You have nothing to worry about. Isn’t that right Theo?”
“What?” Theo said, not taking his eyes away from the female. I glanced at her and she was smirking.
“Well shit,” I said, “Did you really think you could get away with this?”
“Away with what?” The female chuckled “You are not wanted. I think they need to go, don’t you boys? Theo, baby, get rid of them”
“Baby!” Emily squealed “You can’t just-”
“Theo. They are still here,”
“Yes,” Theo got to his feet and walked over to us. He went to put his hand on us, but Leo was there in a flash “Why are you trying to stop me?”
“Because you need to think hard about what you are about to do,” Leo said.
The female laughed “I see that you don’t fall to my charms. What a shame. I had my eye on you.”
“This bitch!” I said, and I grabbed hold of Theo “Don’t hate me for this”
My knee made perfect contact with his nuts and Theo doubled over, crying in pain. He looked up and flipped me the middle finger. Leo laughed slightly.
“Ouch,” He groaned “Willow, that really hurt. But thanks”
“You are very welcome, “Now, are you going to do your own dirty work or are you too much of a wimp to lift your hand?”
“Are you going to come closer to say that to me, or are you going to hide behind Leo?”
“Alright,” I said, clicking my knuckles, “You asked for it,”
“Boys” She laughed.
Before I could reach her, an arm snaked around my neck and I looked up into the glazed over eyes of Aaron. Did she really think that would work?
I punched him in the nuts and he let me go. I rushed at the siren and hit her as hard as I possibly could. Which was hard because I never held back when punching someone. I felt her nose crunch under my fist and I let out a small laugh as her blood gushed from her ruined fake nose.
The brothers shook their heads and their eyes flashed red as they walked towards the siren sitting on the floor, bleeding all over her white dress.
“This little bitch!” Xander yelled, “If you use your charm again I’ll rip your throat out.”
