He watched me as I walked up the stairs. I got to my hallway. Oh great, now I’ve forgotten which door is mine. I think it’s this one. I opened the door and found it wasn’t mine. It was the room of the man that I had ran into downstairs. And he was sitting on the bed, watching me.

“Oh! I’m so sorry. “ I stammered closing the door. I turned around and he was leaning against the wall.

“What’s the hurry?” he asked.

“How-” stupid question “I was just heading to bed, so if you will excuse me.”I said walking past him.

“Your room is that way.” he pointed, a smirk on his face.

“...right.” I said, I could feel my face heat with embarrassment. I turned around and stood there looking at the doors. Still unsure of which door was actually mine.

“It’s the one on the left.”

“Right, thanks. I should remember my own room, I mean this is my house, haha.”

“Your house?” he laughed. “this isn’t your house.”

“Yes it is.” I said, turning around, confused.

“are you sure?” there was a crashing sound downstairs.

“What was that?” I said.

“Go downstairs. I see your companions have finally arrived. Took them long enough.” he said, returning to his door. “Goodbye for now, Raven.” he shut his door. I could hear yelling downstairs.

“Where is she? Elliot, so got help me; if you’ve done something to her I will kill you!” I heard a man yell. was he talking about me?I ran downstairs to find a man holding Elliot up against the wall.

“Elliot!” I said running over and pushing the man off of him.

“Who do you think you are? You have not right!” I yelled at the man.

“Raven, what are you talking about?” he said looking hurt and confused.

“You will not lay another hand on my brother.”

“Brother? Your...brother?” he was breathing heavy, looking between me and Elliot.

“Raven...that’snot...”

“Raven.” I looked up at the top of the stairs. The man was sitting on the top step with an amused look on his face.

“Elliot is Ash’s brother. You are Ash’s girlfriend, you guys are soulmates. Elliot wiped your memory.”

“Wha-” the door banged open and in came a girl with long brown curly hair, looking flustered with snowflakes in her hair. it’s snowing?! Wait. Focus Raven. I looked back at the girl. Wait. That’s Amanda! I rushed over to her and knocked her over. I was over top of her looking down at her.

“What are you doing here?” I looked into her eyes and all of a sudden memories came rushing back. I fell back holding my head.

“Raven!” Ash dropped Elliot and rushed over.

“Are you okay?”I looked up.

“...Ash?”

“Yes, Raven. It’s me, Ash.” I stood up and walked over to Elliot. I punched him in the face.

“Ow! What was that for?!” he said, rubbing his face.

“How dare you try and manipulate me! I don’t know what is going on with you and your brother, but I remember everything. Including what happened here and before I got here. I don’t know what issue you have with Ash, but this is going to end now. I WILL not be a part of your petty jealousy issue. Either you make up now or so god help you I will kill you myself. Your mother would not have wanted this. Yes, she saw me with Ash. Maybe if she had not passed away, eventually she would have saw someone with you too. So stop being a spoiled brat just because you can’t get what you want and make up.” Ash and Elliot just stared at me and then looked at each other.

“NOW.” I said.

“But-” I walked over and grabbed Elliot by the hair.

“I know you’re better than what you come off as. I’ve spent a few days with you, and saw the real you not this asshole you’re pretending to be. Apologize now.” I said forcing him down to his knees. He looked up at Ash and mumbled.

“Sorry.”

“What was that? I can’t hear you. Louder!”
“I’m sorry okay? Damn Ash, get your girlfriend off of me. I don’t know what you see in this human. I’m actually starting to think she isn’t completely human anymore.”

“That’s because she isn’t.” Amanda spoke up.

“Amanda, do you know what I am?” I asked.

“I do, but I refuse to tell you in the presence of vampires.”

“Amanda, you know I wouldn’t do anything to harm her.” Ash said.

“You were planning on turning her into a vampire were you not? With what she is, if you did that then she would have been the strongest vampire in human history. She’s the last of her kind. They were all killed off a long time ago... or so we thought.

“What is she...” Elliot asked.

“She’s an Oracle.” Ash said.
